Yesterday’s all-day Moon void in Libra suggested a wandering drift, surprise twists or “much ado about nothing” crises in the area of relationship. Toss in Mercury retrograde, suggesting communication snafus, and you’ve got an apt backdrop for the muddled mess that erupted in Alabama over gay marriage. A federal judge issued an order legalizing it; on Sunday, Alabama’s Chief Justice ordered judges not to issue marriage licenses; on Monday, the Supreme Court said it would not block the federal judge’s ruling; hence, the muddled mess, as some counties heeded the federal judge and others heeded the Chief Justice, Roy Moore.
I love how the NYT reporter in the first linked article observes that this “legal showdown…echoed the battles over desegregation here in the 1960s.” Avid readers of this forecast are aware that the upheaval of the 60s happened in sync with the three Uranus-Pluto conjunctions that occurred in 1965 and 1966. The upheaval we’re experiencing now is in sync with the next stage of that cycle; i.e., seven exact Uranus-Pluto squares, the last of which will occur on March 15th. Coincidence or conspiracy?
Now, about today. The Moon plunged into Scorpio at 2:05AM ET, driving the day with a need for depth, substance, power and control. Contact with Neptune at 3:15PM ET adds a visionary flavor to the mix. Elsewhere, mental Mercury is slowing down once again, about to turn direct tomorrow at 9:57AM ET. Please be especially focused in your efforts to communicate and even more patient as you travel about. We’ll likely need the rest of the week to adjust to Mercury’s forward motion, as we realize that some of the Really Great Ideas we came up with in the past few weeks need a bit of refinement. Lucky us, there are no other heavy and exact planetary patterns this week, except for those to the Moon.
In my next post, I’ll share some feedback I received from an avid reader — a 13-year-old Scorpio who asked his mother to write me with his thoughts on the forecast posted on Friday…stay tuned…
