Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 2/24/2015: The Oscars and Such
Wow. Where did Monday go? Is it Tuesday already?
The Taurus Moon is void all day — not to enter Gemini until 11:54PM ET. You know the drill: stick to routine concerns and chill. You can still be quite productive in efforts to build and maintain material security thanks to an ease of energy flow between Venus (money, social expression, women) and Saturn that is exact at 9:58AM ET, and carries through the day. Good food, music and a snuggle with your sweetie — those and other creature comforts would be an apt reward tonight.
And now, the news.
From yesterday — how interesting — on a day with an ambitious and controlling square between Saturn and the Sun — to see the words “crack down” appear in not one, but two headlines on the NYT homepage. The Australian leader is cracking down on terrorism. The Venezuelan leader is also cracking down. Curious, isn’t it? There are no more headlines about crackdowns on the NYT homepage right now….but there is one which includes the words “Best Selfie Ever”. Remember last week when Venus entered Aries and I anticipated that we’d see more headlines about selfies? Well, that didn’t take long…
So the Oscars came and went and what happened? Patricia Arquette won for Best Supporting Actress. She made headlines for giving an acceptance speech calling for wage equality — and it went viral, especially since Meryl Streep was captured on film reacting to it by leaping out of her chair and shouting “YES!!!” You will recall what a rebel Ms. Streep is when her horoscope was discussed in a bit about astro-twin Elizabeth Warren’s horoscope last week, right? And that we’d expect her rebellious spark to attract attention, yes?
As for Ms. Arquette, it should be no surprise to learn that she has Venus (social expression) at 29 Pisces and Mercury (mindset communication) at 2 Aries. They are both within range of the Aries Point, and thus can be expected to attract attention. With transiting Venus and Mars at 2 Aries on Sunday, of course what Ms. Arquette had to say would be noticed. We can expect Ms. Arquette to remain in the spotlight over the next couple of years, as Uranus and Pluto supercharge her Aries Sun and Midheaven.
In other news, there’s Fox celebrity Bill O’Reilly. He’s been accused of inflating some of the stories he reported while covering the Falklands war many years ago for CBS. Naturally my first thought was that he must have a dynamic aspect between Mercury (mindset) and Neptune (color it rose) in his horoscope, like Brian Williams. And in fact he does have Mercury conjunct Neptune, and this idealistic pattern is under fire from Uranus and Pluto. We’d expect his words and thoughts to be supercharged. Not only that, but Mr. O’Reilly has Moon in me-me-me Aries, just like Mr. Williams. Moon in Aries is a natural warrior, doncha’ know. It needs to lead and inspire. It needs to be a hero. Isn’t that interesting?
Keepin’ it light today. What’s going on in your horoscope?
