Slow start or twist to your morning routine? Meetings postponed or flaked upon? The Cancer Moon has been void of course since 8:37AM ET Sunday, and it does not enter Leo until 12:41PM ET. If you slept in this morning, everything likely turned out just fine. Take care of routine matters this morning and go with the flow of whatever interferes with your efforts to move forward in a straight line.
Once the Moon enters Leo, the energy of the day is primed for applause. How can you shine, and help others shine, too? Leo Moon also paves the way for drama kings and queens, and we can expect some to take center stage, as the Moon waxes to its fullness at 6:09PM ET Tuesday.
Planetary patterns are relatively light this week. Mercury is still retrograde (how many people from your past have turned up and how many meetings have you rescheduled)? Uranus and Pluto are inching closer to their seventh and final exact square on March 15th. The latter is the one that suggests sweeping upsets and changes of status, sure to be experienced personally by anyone born halfway through Aries, Capricorn, Libra and Cancer. A good birthday gift for them would be a consultation with an astrologer. It will put all of those changes into perspective. Same goes for anyone with a planet or angle at around 15 degrees of those signs.
Your Moon voids for the week, in addition to today’s: Wednesday 12:31AM ET until Thursday 12:46AM ET and Friday 5:09PM ET until Saturday 1:44PM ET. Impulse shopping sprees are to be avoided. Same goes for finalizing deals and plans, as they are more liable to change.
And now, the news.
I was quite pleased to see that nearly all of the commercials in yesterday’s Super Bowl fell into the sweet, sensitive and sentimental category. “What is this, Lifetime Movie Network,” tweeted my sassy friend Toni. Exactly. Thank you, nurturing Cancer Moon, with Venus and Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Make love, not war. And the winner was in fact the most sentimental and soulful ad of all, as predicted. Congratulations to the lost puppy reuniting with his Clydesdale pals.
Planetary patterns suggested a close game with surprise twists favoring the underdog and spectacular communication snafus. What did you think? I was fascinated to see that in the very last minutes of the game, which included a sublime touchdown (by the Patriots), followed by “the worst call in Super Bowl history” (as the Pats intercepted a pass thrown by Seattle a few feet from the end zone), nebulous Neptune was front and center, driving the action of the horoscope for the game.Bewildered? Bedazzled? But of course! And I suppose the underdogs did win after all, as Seattle was the defending champion…and that (also as predicted), those deflated balls were of no consequence at all.
In other news, the no-nonsense fiscal potential of last Friday’s Venus (money) – Saturn (get real) square was reflected in this item on why you should tell your children how much money you make. Venus also refers to women and aesthetics, which is why it made sense that this bit about the harshness (Saturn) of renowned author Colleen McCullough’s obituary (this one published in the Australian) made headlines everywhere. Life can seem like a bitch with heavy Venus-Saturn patterns. Apparently, death can, too.
Mercury retrograde is an excellent time to REview your life with your astrologer. Here’s the 411 on scheduling a personal consultation.
