Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 4/12/2012: Saturn Opposing Sun
Moon continues its ambitious course in Capricorn, needing to make things happen. Fueling your plans for world domination is a potent hook-up between ruthless Pluto and that enterprising Moon. What losses will be cut? What power will be grabbed? How weird and surreal — and intense — can it get?
The weird and surreal part is related to the continuing opposition between aggressive Mars and nebulous Neptune, which has been reflected in all kinds of lurid headlines, some of which were covered in this forecast. Another pattern in stark contrast is wet blanket Saturn opposing the Sun (life force) at 2:27PM ET on Saturday (we’ve been feeling this all week). Get real, get streamlined, get ambitious, get lean and mean, get depressed — or just get outta here. I recommend choosing the most constructive option, and when in doubt, call Dad — or reach out to another authority whom you trust to see if you’re on the right track.
An expansive mood falls at the end of the work day on the East Coast — at 4:44PM ET — when lucky Jupiter makes a harmonious connection to the Moon. Will angels be smiling on us in the Eastern Time Zone? 444 is one of those “angel numbers” — and I confess I’ve seen it all over the place in recent weeks. What are angel numbers and what do they signify? Read all about it here: http://spiritlibrary.com/doreen-virtue/number-sequences-from-the-angels
Speaking of symbolism, I have to follow up on the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon at 3 Aries on March 22nd: “A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country”. A recap from that forecast:
With this Sabian Symbol, Blain Bovee notes the potential “to stereotype others at the expense of their full individuality; to highlight only their prominent features” (suggested by the image of the cameo profile, which is only presenting one side of a person’s face). Watch for stories of snap judgments based on general outlines — in the news and in your own personal world. One consequence of such (literally) trigger-happy thinking is illustrated in this disturbing story, likely to gain more traction in the headlines during this lunar cycle: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/17/opinion/blow-the-curious-case-of-trayvon-martin.html
Moving on to the Sabian Symbol for last Friday’s Full Moon at 18 Libra “two men placed under arrest” opposing the Sun at 18 Aries (Sabian Symbol: “an empty hammock”), George Zimmerman was arrested and charged with the murder of Trayvon Martin http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/12/us/zimmerman-to-be-charged-in-trayvon-martin-shooting.html?hp And let’s not forget the TV producer who was fired over this same developing story: http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/06/nbc-fires-producer-of-misleading-zimmerman-tape/
