Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 7/12/2012: Taurus Has a Dark Side
Moon in Taurus needs to keep things as they are — or as they should be — for the ultimate goal of preserving material security. This is a day to take comfort in food, sweet music and snuggles — assuming said snuggles are available. It is also a day when you — or others around you — may be digging in their heels or stamping their feet like a terrible two year-old and simply refusing to budge…likely over some idealistic perspective that simply can not be discussed in rational terms.
Emotions may run deep and high around 11:34 AM ET, when Moon cozies up to transformational Pluto…and a dramatic clash of mood vs. mind may occur around 8:35PM ET, when the stubborn Moon squares off against mental Mercury in royal Leo. These are potentials, mind you. Hopefully in your own personal world, you’ll apply the steady determination and organizational skills of a Taurus Moon constructively — without the stubborn drama.
Meanwhile, I am already hearing reports of computers and other communication devices and systems on the fritz. That’s your friendly reminder to back up your computers and iPhones in preparation for Mercury turning retrograde on July 14th.
In other news, I was thrilled to hear from the reader who clicked on a recent link posted in this forecast that takes you to a website that tells you if one of the 50 states — and parts of Canada — might be holding money you didn’t even know was owed you. This reader just got a check for $125 — how cool is that?
Headlines that have caught my eye include yesterday’s void-of-course Moon vote in the House of Representatives to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The general rule on events occurring during a void is that they are likely to be of no consequence. We shall see…
General note on the headlines: with Neptune now firmly in the early part of Pisces, it is interesting to see all of these stories of mysterious infections, drugs, oceans, and oil on the NYT homepage as I type. I expect more of the same over the next thirteen years.
