Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 4/16/2012: Henri, the Existential Cat as Metaphor…
So…in light of Mars (action) moving forward in Virgo (organization) late Friday night, how many of you spent Saturday cleaning out closets and other major housekeeping chores? That query was posted as the Facebook status of an astrologer colleague, and within minutes several people, myself included, ‘fessed up to having enthusiastically cleaned the refrigerator, organized the garage, etc., no doubt aided and abetted by the disciplined potential of Sunday’s opposition between controlling Saturn and the Sun.
Another potential of Sunday’s Saturn-Sun opposition: reports from Europe of an increase in the number of suicides related to despair over austere (Saturn) economic measures http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/16/opinion/krugman-europes-economic-suicide.html?_r=1&hp — and this one, much more uplifting: the (tongue-in-cheek) depression experienced by Henri, the Existential Cat http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M7ibPk37_U which found its way into my emailbox on Saturday. Perfect timing! Set to music with a track from the sweetly haunting score from Diva, Henri’s dilemma is an apt reflection of one potential of today’s Moon in dreamy Pisces, as it first makes contact with nebulous Neptune at 6:26 AM ET (note your dreams), followed by possibly irritating opposition to hypercritical Mars in Virgo at 8:44AM ET. Either that, or your allergies are acting up. Go with the flow…
…and note the shift in mindset and communication that occurs as mental Mercury marches forward into pioneering, impulsive, fearless, sometimes downright militant Aries at 6:42 PM ET. Militant or not, the ideas that spring forth this week are likely to be fresh and innovative — and may recall big ideas that were percolating on March 5th and 18th. They could be just the thing to get Henri out of his existentialist rut — and you, too — as demonstrated by the relentlessly creative (and militant) Confuse-A-Cat crew at Monty Python http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2Je1CEPkUM
By evening, a deep emotional connection…followed by sweet indulgence may well transpire.
