Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 10/24/2013: A Dream Home with Moon in Cancer
OK, break’s over. The Moon is fully engaged in Cancer as of 11:36PM ET last night. This suggests a focus on building and maintaining emotional and home security needs: connecting with family, tending to your home and whatever else nurtures and nourishes. With Mercury retrograde, a REview of or REconnection with these needs may also be on the table. Dreams may have been especially vibrant upon waking, courtesy of a lovely connection between the intuitive Moon and nebulous Neptune.
The morning and early afternoon have an easy flow, bathed in a rose-colored glow or fog, courtesy of the alignment between the Sun and Neptune discussed in yesterday’s forecast. By early evening on the East Coast, however, we can expect the weekly jolt, revelation and/or power plays that occurs when the Moon makes contact with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square. You’ll feel this more personally if you were born 9-10 days into Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn…or if you have a planet or angle at 9 degrees of those signs. Don’t know where your planets are? Well, for heaven’s sake, make an appointment for a personal consultation and find out! Really, there’s too much going on in the cosmos, reflected in world events, to remain clueless about how it is likely to impact YOU.
So…yesterday as you know, the Moon was void of course for 27 hours, and there was a major sports event last night, a.k.a. Game 1 of the World Series. The supposedly red-hot St. Louis Cardinals went up against the Boston Red Sox and the Sox trounced the Cardinals, 8-1. The general rule of Moon voids is that in sports matches, we can expect upsets, twists and outcomes that favor the underdog. Here’s how the game was written up by the New York Times:
BOSTON — Errors, missed pop ups and fat pitches hardly seemed like the Cardinal Way. The St. Louis Cardinals had stormed into the World Series while priding themselves on this ideal of professionalism and strong fundamentals.
It made it all the more surprising when they figuratively tripped over their own feet Wednesday night, falling to the Red Sox, 8-1, in Game 1 of the World Series. Making matters worse, they also lost their star right fielder Carlos Beltran to injury…
Fascinating, isn’t it?
In other news, I’m seeing the disruptive and destructive potential of the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, combined with the rarefied artsy-vibe of tomorrow’s Sun-Neptune alignment reflected perfectly in an art exhibition opening today at the Smithsonian called “Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950.” What perfect timing! Meanwhile, Germany is quite upset over a recent report alleging that the U.S. tapped into Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cellphone, and Germany is not alone in its outrage. Given the upsets to the status quo suggested in the U.S. horoscope in mid-2014, it will be interesting to see how stories like these develop over the next year.
Following up on Monday’s forecast, JPMorgan Chase is making headlines as it faces another penalty for “turning a blind eye” to the Ponzi scheme run by its customer, Bernie Madoff. Can we expect another bold action from Chairman & CEO Jamie Dimon, reflecting the high tension happening in his horoscope? His Mars (planet of action) is under pressure from rebel Uranus through February of 2014, along with pressure to his Mercury (mindset, communication) from other planetary patterns. Here’s one possible brilliant maneuver we might see — this one involving taxpayer dollars and the “record fine” allegedly levied against the bank for its mortgage practices leading up to the 2008 financial crisis.
As we approach the fourth exact hit of the Uranus-Pluto square on November 1st, we can expect significant news involving aviation, nuclear energy, seismic events, revolution, transformation and the cosmos, just to name a few keywords associated with Uranus and Pluto. Here’s a story that hit yesterday about the cosmos: the discovery of a galaxy far, far away…
