Today’s forecast — no rest for weary! We’ll wake up with Moon in high-flying Sagittarius, which should lighten the mood and give everyone a soapbox from which to opine. Note your dreams upon waking. Try not to step on anyone’s toes with your brilliant, willful points of view, if a clash of wills is not in your best interest. If you need to clash, you’ll likely have a chance to do so today.
As the day progresses, say around 3 or 6PM, depending on your time zone, another challenge may emerge related to your New Moon agenda from three weeks ago. What did we say it was? Oh, here: What quantum leaps of consciousness and/or efficiency are within your potential this month? What other “great leaps forward” will we see in the headlines? Think humanitarian, socially significant, rebellion, freedom, technology and whatever else disrupts the status quo. Dare to be boring (the word “boring” has been corrupted; it means to pierce through), with your New Moon agenda, and push through to the light on the other side. Consider this, as a jovial mood settles in for the evening, just in time to wish Steve Jobs a happy birthday. Where would we be without him?
Meanwhile, coincidence or conspiracy? Yesterday’s forecast: “dare to make a deeper connection,” and what makes headlines? A daring, deep connection made by a blogger impersonating billionaire and alleged Tea Party financier David Koch in a phone call to Governor Scott Walker, whose horoscope you may also recall from yesterday’s forecast. I had not heard Walker speak — you can find a recording and a transcript here — http://www.buffalobeast.com/?p=5045 and I was intrigued to hear him barrel through his agenda with a singular focus, determined to maintain control and not budge one inch from his established goals, which he clearly believes in 1000%. — just as his horoscope suggests. I was particularly struck by Walker’s reference to what appeared to be an admired ideal — Ronald Reagan’s firing of the air traffic controllers during their strike in 1981 — do you recall how Walker’s horoscope suggests a strong idealism?
Another dare to make a deeper connection: the Defense of Marriage Act will no longer be defended in court by the Justice Dept: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/24/us/24marriage.html?hp And here’s another, by a college student daring to seek a deeper connection with Newt Gingrich http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0211/50021.html
A brief word on the events of 1981-82 — and why they may be coming around again. The US is currently experiencing a Saturn return. The last one we had was in — you guessed it — 1981-82. Saturn is related to ambition, structures, control– and it takes 28-30 years to circle through a horoscope and return to its original position. So every 28-30 years we (and here I’m talking about “we” as Americans, not your own personal Saturn return), get to re-assess decisions we made way back then. What ambitions did we set? How are they working out? What are we going to reach for in the next 28-30 years? Does it feel like the US is currently re-evaluating ambitions set in 1981-82?
You’re having a personal Saturn return now if you were born in Sep/Oct 1981, Apr-Aug of 1982 or Sep/Oct of 1952 — this is a very important time in your life — consult your local astrologer for details.
