Writing this while watching a live feed streaming on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-11489439 — as the first of the Chilean miners are being pulled out of the depths into the light. Honestly, humanity, there is no limit to the good we can do on this Earth…if we could only…oh…I dunno…get out of our own way.
This concludes the soapbox portion of this forecast.
Moon is in “make it happen” Capricorn, making contact to Pluto, Lord of the Underground this morning — which would seem to bode well for the miners — Capricorn rules mines, along with Pluto. You can apply this intensely focused energy to whatever initiative you launched in conjunction with last Thursday’s New Moon. Plumb the depths!
Meanwhile, in keeping with our collective two-year focus on re-examining rules for treating each other with fairness and justice (Saturn in Libra), yesterday a federal judge banned “don’t ask, don’t tell” — but note that this issue is likely not completely settled — we’ve got two years to go before this “focus group” concludes.
Finally, another split hit the headlines yesterday: Christina Aguilera and her husband are reportedly ending their marriage. And since I looked at Courteney Cox and David Arquette last night, I thought I’d see if there were any similarities happening in Ms. Aguilera’s chart, especially since I have allegedly accurate birth data of 12/18/1980, 10:46AM in Staten Island.
Immediately we see nebulous Neptune sitting right on Aguilera’s ascendant and challenging Uranus, which rules her house of one-on-one partnerships. Neptune tends to dissolve whatever it touches, so here bewilderment, confusion, fantasy, escapism, idealism — or a combination of all the above — are all suggested, clouding her sense of identity and directly affecting her relationship with her partner. Isn’t it interesting that Neptune is also quite active in the charts of Cox and Arquette? You might be experiencing a bewilderment of your own if you were born around Feb 14-16, May 15-17, August 17-19 and Nov 17-19 — though not necessarily impacting your marriage or other significant partnership — but a bewilderment nonetheless.
