Oh, these crazy Mercury retrogrades/Moon void combinations. Why else would my ISP fail to function as designed, thus delaying the posting of today’s forecast? Thank goodness for Mark Marshall at Interage. Have you hired him to build your website yet?
Today’s whether forecast calls for sugar-spun clouds of social graces and pleasantly rational thoughts, courtesy of the people-pleasing Moon in airy Libra (as of 8:02AM ET). And yet Venus is mingling with nebulous Neptune, joining three other planets in the watery depths of Pisces. On the upside, there’s the potential for random acts of kindness and senseless acts of sweet beauty. On the down side, some may feel they searching for an anchor. Others may prefer to simply choke in shallow waters. Or wallow. Or drown (cue Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians now).
I say take the high road. This lovely Libra Moon and Mercury retrograde offer opportunities to re-connect with people you haven’t seen in ages. Why not reach out? The sublime Venus-Neptune meet-up offers healers, writers, musicians and other charitable and creative types divine inspiration over the next few days. And perhaps to some romantics, too. As evening approaches, be mindful of a potential revelation or other jolt when the peaceful Libra Moon is disrupted by rebel Uranus at 8:11PMET. The rest of the night could be just jolly…and end with a reeeeallly long sigh. Moon goes void at 3:37AM ET Thursday …not to enter Scorpio until 12:33PM ET on FRIDAY.
Meanwhile, in line with the startling events involving declarations of independence by women suggested by the current lunar cycle, I hope you took one reader’s suggestion and watched Makers: Women Who Make America on PBS last night. Regular readers of this forecast know that civil rights were a huge theme in the 60s, as reflected by the Uranus-Pluto conjunction of 1965-66. Freedom. Equality. Disruption of the status quo! Fifty years later, Uranus and Pluto are at it again — as of 2012 and thru 2015. Three years is a loooooonng time for these two “resistance is futile” planets to figuratively collide. So many of the seeds that were planted during the 60s are back now — with a vengeance — to claim victory over oppression once and for all. Just ask the Great State of Mississippi, which finally — last week — ratified the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. Congratulations, Mississippi…for taking so long to bring to fruition the seeds of equality that were planted at the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that happened in…1850.
In other related news, the plight of so-called pink-collar workers, specifically those at Weight Watchers was illuminated by Monday’s Full Moon in Virgo (workers) opposing the Sun in Pisces (suffering). Columnist Maureen Dowd seems unamused by the harsh controls imposed on workers by Yahoo’s female CEO. Other Pisces keywords are film and illusion; here’s another aptly timed labor (Virgo) gripe that was highlighted at the Oscars: the visual effects artists who make movie magic (e.g., Life of Pi) vs. their employers. That’s why so many Facebook profile pics have turned chroma key green, btw. So now you know.
Chroma key green with envy is what your friends will be when you tell them you REviewed your life with your astrologer during this Mercury retrograde.
