Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 12/19/2012: Action!

Planetary activity is lighter today that is has been in recent days…and will be as we get closer to the end of the month. The Moon continues its sojourn through Pisces, seeking a soulful dream, a union or escape. If you find one, chances are strong that it may not be your usual cup of tea, given a harmonious connection between Venus (social expression/aesthetic sense) and rebel Uranus, which favors the weird and the wacky…in a good, friendly kind of way. Enjoy getting off the beaten path…and watch the headlines for interesting news about art, finance and technology. If you can’t find a dream, a union or an escape, then have a little faith, another Pisces keyword.

At 5:44PM Moon makes a communicative aspect with action-oriented Mars, which can be helpful for fostering a cooperative effort between opposing sides. Mars has been “running wild” (i.e., like a loose cannon) in Capricorn for most of this month, suggesting no-nonsense, assertive or aggressive action, for better or for worse. Mars also refers to firearms, and is one of the planetary patterns being reflected by the continued domination of guns in the headlines…and it’s not just talk; it’s action! Gun control measures are being introduced. TV shows about guns and Ted Nugent are being cancelled.  The private equity firm that owns the country’s largest gun manufacturer is selling the company…after one of its top investors, the California teachers pension fund (oh, the irony), started asking questions. This private equity fund is called Cerberus, which happens to be the name of the ferocious, deadly, totally evil, monstrous, three-headed beast that guards the gates of Hell. Coincidence or conspiracy? If you read any of the articles linked in this forecast, read this one, which lists some of the players involved in Cerberus.

Yesterday I wrote about the so-called “Finger of God” or “Yod” pattern that is in effect over the next week, and this evening I wondered how the horoscope of the United States might be affected. I’ll skip the technical details so civilians reading this forecast do not run screaming down the halls. For students and professionals,  I am using the 2:13AM horoscope (the exact birth time of the US is an ongoing debate among astrologers); the point of impact is the Gemini Ascendant conjunct the freedom-loving rebel, Uranus. Here are the keywords for what the US might be experiencing, as suggested by that pattern (with gratitude to master astrologer Noel Tyl for literally writing the book). On the one hand, we are coping with being the public face of “sadness, mourning” and  “brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack, regardless of potential losses”. On the other hand, we have a silver lining: “enthusiasm, harmony”; “the big break; boundless optimism”.

What do you think? Do these keywords fit our reality? Stay tuned to this forecast for more on themes that are up for us in this lunar cycle and also the Winter Solstice, which is when, as you all know, the world is scheduled to end.

Well. Maybe not the world, but certainly a world. Hmmm…maybe it’s time to give all your friends and relations a Personal One-Hour Astrological Consultation…my special holiday promotion at a very affordable price.  Why not give yourself, one, too, so you know what you can expect in your own personal world in these swiftly-changing times?

Thank you for reading this forecast…from the bottom of my heart.
