Hope your efforts at sorting, refining, discerning and perfecting are going wonderfully well, courtesy of a day driven by the Moon in Virgo. Ship it before 2:33PM ET, when the Moon goes void with a sigh, suggesting you then focus efforts on sorting matters of routine. Extra sweetness to the day is added by an easy alignment between Venus and Jupiter, traditionally thought of as fairy godmothers in the language of astrology. Ask and ye may receive, especially if your personal horoscope is affected by this pattern.
Moon enters Libra on THURSDAY at 9:51AM ET, accompanied by a potentially controlling and idealized focus suggested by the Scorpio Sun’s meet-up with mental Mercury at 12:17PM ET. The Libra Moon suggests a need for harmony and balance in relationships. Combined with a Scorpio Sun, we could see the potential for someone to assume that his or her concept of balance and harmony is shared by everyone else — so says astrologer Noel Tyl. We shall see. There are no other exact aspects on Thursday.
And now, catching up on the news.
“The Pentagon’s ‘Terminator Conundrum’ — Robots That Could Kill on Their Own.” Oh, just what we need, Pentagon — yet just in time for Saturday’s supercharged contact between Mars (warrior) in high-functioning Capricorn and Uranus (technology, aviation) in Aries (warrior). What else made the New York Times? “A.I. Inspiration: the Science-Fiction that Frames Discussion.” Here’s one from NPR: Bob Hoover, one of the greatest (fighter) pilots, is dead at 94.
Ever since Jupiter entered Libra in September, I’ve noticed an uptick — as anticipated — in stories about equality. Gender equality is one theme. Even the phrase “false equivalency” seemed to become suddenly prevalent in September. Jupiter suggests expansion. Libra suggests harmony, balance and equality — especially between polarities. Fascinating. Yesterday, in the wake of a charged aspect between Venus (women, money, art, social expression) and Neptune (compassion, arts, drugs and alcohol), it was reported that women are now drinking as much as men. Equality! Meanwhile, not so fair and balanced: how compensation for damages incurred by plaintiffs is assessed by race and gender. Elsewhere, a shocker: Canada fell from first to….25th in the UN’s gender equality ranking. Oh, Canada!
In other news, we can see the accident-prone energy of Mars and Uranus with the escapist potential of Venus and Neptune in this headline: Dreamworld Theme Park Accident Kills 4 , Australian Officials Say. Of course it would be Dreamworld. Elsewhere, I was expecting we might see a prominent headline about diabetes, given today’s sweet alignment between Jupiter and Venus. Not quite, but in the language of astrology, Jupiter does refer to the liver. Thanks, WaPo, for this dreamy true love story: He Gave Her His Liver; She Gave Him Her Heart.
That’s the news for today. Thank you for reading this forecast. To find out what’s going on in your own personal horoscope, here’s the 411 on consultations.
