Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/23/2014: Love, Money & Fashion Statements

Moon is in people-pleasing Libra until 4:43PM ET —  void of course. But I told you this yesterday, so you’re prepared, right? Go with the flow; take care of what is routine. Chill. Meditate. Please do not make mountains out of molehills, which so often happens during voids. Chill!

Libra refers to partnerships, especially marriage, and Venus, which rules Libra, is currently retrograde — until January 31st — and this can put a stress on relationship. And even though yesterday was filled with jarring aspects, I was certainly jarred to read that The Captain and Tennille are filing for divorce after 39 years of marriage. Cue “Love Will Keep Us Together” now, please.

Of course I looked at their horoscopes, and both have transits involving the 10th house (public status) and the 3rd house (mindset). In the Captain’s case, it’s a Neptune thing: [he] “seemed blindsided by the break-up. ‘I don’t know why she filed. I gotta figure it out for myself first.'” That bewilderment he’s feeling? That is Neptune. In Tennille’s case, it’s a Saturn thing — which could be a reach for ambition or a need to cut losses….or just to cut. As the song goes, “Whatever.”

You may recall in an earlier post that Venus retrograde in Capricorn was likely to be reflected in stories of outrageous purchases for the sake of social status.  “We are broke, have an unconscionable amount in credit card debt already, and this Inaugural is killing us!!” wrote Maureen McDonnell, wife of the then-Governor of Virginia, to her still-husband. She really, really needed a dress to wear to a ball.  They have just been indicted — for accepting status-enhancing gifts — including a dress — from a businessman who allegedly expected certain favors in return.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing series of stories we can expect to see about wealth inequality (thank you Uranus square Pluto and Saturn in Scorpio), Oxfam released a report stating that 85 people on this planet have as much wealth as 3.5 billion of the poorest among us, which is  more than half the world’s population. This just as the elite of the world gather at Davos to discuss the state of the world economy. Actor Matt Damon was there — to alert the world to its impending water crisis. Thank you, Neptune in Pisces. And thank you, Matt Damon, for trying to do something good for humanity.

I think it’s time to have a look at what kind of pants the Norwegian curling team will be wearing at the Winter Olympics…

This light blue is brought to you by today’s Moon in Libra, as well as this soft rose. Neither of these colors will be worn by the Norwegian curling team at the Winter Olympics. Contact me if you’d like to schedule a personal astro-logical consultation.
