Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 1/10/11: Shootings in Tucson, AZ

Any wild dreams upon waking? Contacts from Moon  to expansive Jupiter, erratic Uranus (all three in free-flowing, intangible Pisces) and mental Mercury in high-flying Sagittarius during the wee hours certainly suggests that possibility. I dreamed I was working as a temporary secretary at a local, independently-owned TV station, where I crashed the entire broadcasting machine by selecting the option “exit” while editing a Word document. It made no sense to me whatsoever that the station’s ability to function was so vulnerable. Hmm.

A slow start or twist in your morning routine was also suggested on the East Coast, as Moon was void between 6:12 – 10:24AM NY time, before zooming into Aries, sign of me-me-me — and oh, did I mention ME? Moon in Aries suggests opportunity to more forward on pioneering projects — to take the lead, to be courageous and to inspire. Onward!

On the downside, Moon in Aries can suggest a lack of consideration, pushiness, brashness and general insensitivity to others in the rush to put forth a Big Idea. Communication today may indeed be brilliant and inspired, but it also may feel frenetic or disruptive to the status quo, as suggested by contacts to opinionated Mercury in Sagittarius from the aforementioned technologically brilliant, but erratic Uranus and nebulous, transcendental Neptune. Do be especially mindful if you are traveling — and try not to overload your machinery.

As for the utterly upsetting headlines from Arizona over the weekend, I note the following — with a silver lining promised at the end of these notes:

1) This senseless violence, perpetrated by an individual “revolutionary” acting against a perceived governmental “control” is no surprise, given current and especially approaching planetary patterns;

2) The chart of the State of Arizona (Feb 14 1912) shows last week’s expansive/erratic Jupiter-Uranus hook-up challenging — for the third time since 2010 — ruthless Pluto on Jan 4 and 5, preceding another challenge from nebulous Neptune to Arizona’s Sun in Aquarius (freedom-loving, eccentric) during all of 2009 into 2010; sounds like a compelling illustration for the weirdness and brutally divisive tone we’ve been witnessing therein;

3) Though we do not have a confirmed birth date for the perpetrator, we have enough (Sept 1988) to see that Jupiter-Uranus hook-up triggering (no pun intended) Jared Loughner’s opinionated ambition and intensity merging “old guard” with “avant garde” suggested by his Saturn and Uranus in Sagittarius; a likely trigger to his Mars (action) from ruthless Pluto, with his Sun triggered either by Pluto or Uranus. And yes, we see in ten seconds the potential for delusion (a subversive Mars retrograde in Aries likely challenged by nebulous Neptune), perhaps made even more so if he was born around Sep 28th, which would then put his Sun under that weird Mars-Neptune spell, too.

4) The horoscope of Gabrielle Giffords shows Mars and Uranus under stress and tension from Pluto throughout 2010 — these planets are not marshmallows. And yes, there are other patterns, too — but I would rather focus attention and intention on Congresswoman Giffords — and all those who were hurt — by sending healing thoughts of light and love their way.

The point is that there are planetary patterns throughout which suggest the potential for events as they occurred. Coincidence or conspiracy?  Even when bearing in mind that, as my teacher, Noel Tyl always says, “Planets don’t do anything; people do” — meaning that their “energy” (for lack of a better word, is neutral. We decide if we are going to be delusional or inspired; destructive or regenerative, etc — it is all. Up. To us.

The silver lining:  if you haven’t heard about Daniel Hernandez, the 20-year old intern whose response-ability likely saved Congresswoman Giffords’ life, this story may inspire you to re-read your First Aid Handbook — or at least go out and buy one: http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2011/01/09/20110109daniel-hernandez-gabrielle-giffords-arizona-shooting.html#ixzz1AXTIZNsb

Have a positive, pioneering day!
