And heeeere we go!
At 2:51 PM ET on MONDAY, we have the First Quarter Moon in which the networking Aquarius Moon challenges the Scorpio Sun. This may present a challenge to the New Moon agenda you set a week ago, and with both Sun and Moon in Fixed Signs, perhaps no one is budging.
Moon continues in Aquarius on TUESDAY, squaring off against mental Mercury at 4:57AM ET. Who or what else may be digging in their heels? And will a little sweetness, delivered with unabashed honesty around 8:55AM ET, move things along? That’s when we’ll see a cooperative alignment between the Aquarius Moon and Venus (women) in boundary-pushing Sagittarius. Moon goes void of course until 4:45PM ET.
A Moon void suggests a higher probability of twists and flakes in your effort to move forward in a straight line, which your nagging conscience suggests should include a line to your local polling place, if you haven’t already cast your ballot. What kind of twists? Oh, I don’t know…you forgot your polling place had changed…exit polls are predicting the end of the world…local transit goes on strike…there’s a general wandering lack of focus…the lines are long and you are seriously considering abandoning your mission (don’t you dare). And do not think for ONE SECOND of believing those evil fake ads telling you to text your vote. You can’t text your vote. You must go to the polls! Got that?
There is nothing going on at the office on this day — thank you, Moon void — that is more important than your exercising your right to VOTE…especially if you are someone who would not have been permitted to vote in this country back in 1776. Or 1919…or even later.
Whatever twists or flakes or crises you may encounter, do not panic. Crises that crop up during voids have an odd way of turning out to be much ado about nothing. At 4:45PM, Moon enters intuitive Pisces, engaged and focused on its need for vision, compassion and the understanding that we are all connected (that’s the upside).
Note your dreams in the AM on WEDNESDAY, as Moon meets up with Neptune. A stern reality check or ambitious advance may weigh in when the Moon is challenged by Saturn at 7:50PM ET. Moon continues in Pisces until 8:45PM ET on THURSDAY. You may not even notice the two hour void on Thursday that starts at 6:16PM ET.
You will notice the long Moon void on SATURDAY between 7:45AM ET and 9:24PM ET. The Moon will be wandering in me-me-me Aries, in the aftermath of its weekly mash-up with Pluto and Uranus. Emotions will likely be running high, as the Moon prepares to wax full on Monday at 8:52AM ET. This Super Duper Full Moon in Taurus — will sit exactly on Donald Trump’s Midheaven and Hillary Clinton’s Descendant, shining a spotlight on career/reputation and relationships, respectively. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.
There are no major aspects between planets this week — except to the Moon. I’ve found that these apparent lulls are often deceptive. To me it’s like looking at a giant ice shelf on the most sparkling sunny day ever…and then, for no apparent reason, half the shelf crumbles into the ocean. I see that potential in Beth Owlsdaughter’s Tarot Card of the Week — posted as I’ve been working on this forecast.
This week we have three planets changing signs. Mars enters rebel Aquarius at 12:52 AM ET on Wednesday. Venus enters status-conscious Capricorn at 11:55PM ET on Friday. Mercury enters righteously opinionated Sagittarius at 9:40AM ET on Saturday. Actions take on a need for social significance until December 19th. Social expression becomes more strategy-oriented and status-conscious until December 8th. Mindset and communication becomes focused on big, broad, pictures — perhaps sloppily so — until December 2nd. Especially toward the weekend, feels like we are changing channels.
And now, the news.
Last weekend’s forecast noted:
an easy alignment between Venus (women) and Uranus (technology).
A smooth consolidation and cooperation between leaders and the Powers That Be is likely to be pulling focus in the headlines, as the Sun (leaders) and Pluto (power) make an easy alignment at 3:22AM on MONDAY.
… which we see reflected in yesterday’s announcement that the FBI has still found nothing suggesting criminal wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton, after investigating the data dump “surprise” that occurred when Mars challenged Uranus on Oct 29th. Stock markets today are surging in the aftermath of that news. And the first hit of a double-pronged challenging pattern that will be exact mid-January in the horoscope of one James Comey may be coming into focus.
Meanwhile, in a parallel universe…Hillary Clinton’s opponent has lost sole control of his Twitter account because his staff does not trust him…and a member of the so-called “Axis of Evil” — North Korea — has given his campaign a “thumbs up!” So has the official newspaper of the KKK.
This would be a good cue for NYT columnist Gail Collins to cheerfully present her “Last Gasp Election Briefing.”
When I look at the horoscope of the United States, I interpret this week’s patterns as having the potential for expansion and reward in matters related to home and emotional security; that which is maternal and nurturing. The expansion is driven by a need for fairness, balance, harmony and equality in relationship. Another potential this pattern suggests is a well-deserved vacation — wouldn’t that be lovely? I almost typed “great” — another potential of this pattern — with bombastic consequences.
I see the potential next week for the U.S. to expand and reaffirm with purpose the ambition of equality upon which this nation was founded — in Libra theory, if not in actual practice.
When I look ahead to the chart for the inauguration, it looks more like a story starring Hillary Clinton than the alternative. No, that’s not the only chart I’m looking at. If my interpretation proves correct, I’ll write about it in a future post. Fingers crossed.
As one of my teachers loves to say, “Planets don’t do anything — PEOPLE do.”
Thank you for reading this forecast.
(UPDATE: At the end of the day, the “bombastic” potential prevailed –and painfully so. Fasten your seatbelts…)
