Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 12/20/2012: Thoughts on the End of the World
A pioneering, inspiring, impulsive and often impatient Aries Moon sets the tone for the day, as of 2:43AM ET. This dynamic placement carries forward the challenge suggested a few hours earlier by the First Quarter Moon at 28 degrees of Pisces, squaring off against the Sun at 28 Sagittarius. Look for movement or resistance to whatever agenda you set at the time of the New Moon.
Aspects to the Moon are mixed. Uranus adds a buzz, a jolt, an innovation or revelation around 11:34AM ET; Venus and Jupiter lift our spirits at 1:40PM ET and 7:54PM ET, respectively; Pluto chimes in at 7:51PM ET with a demand for a catharsis, a purge or a power play. (Actually, it’s hard to imagine ruthless Pluto “chiming in” about anything. Pluto is much more “resistance is futile”).
Resources may well be a topic of conversation late afternoon and into the evening. Do you have what you need to survive tomorrow’s apocalypse? If not, here’s a handy list, useful for this and nearly any other disaster.
My thoughts on the end of the Mayan calendar. First, what do we usually do when one calendar year is ending and another begins? Throw a massive party, celebrating “out with the old; in with the new”! Planetary patterns do suggest the potential for a New World, though perhaps it won’t start as dramatically with friends from the Pleiades showing up for dinner (and that party). One such pattern is the square between rebel Uranus and ruthless Pluto, which suggests a drastic upheaval of the status quo, especially in regards to government and anything else relating to the Establishment, in effect from 2012 – 2015. As I have written in previous posts, Uranus and Pluto will square off seven times in those three years. We’ve had two exact squares so far; five more to go.
Seven squares are rare; usually planets connect three or five times. What kind of potential is suggested by this many instances of exact contact? Consider this: Pluto and Uranus had nine exact contacts between 1496 and 1500. Can anyone recall what was going on during those years? What had recently been discovered”? What was it called? The New World.
So maybe our friends from the Pleiades will show up sooner, rather than later. Or perhaps the New World we will begin to explore is the realm of the spirit/intangible, rather than the material. In 2012, Neptune began its sojourn in Pisces, the sign it rules. As I have written in earlier posts, the last time nebulous, dreamy, soulful Neptune was in equally dreamy Pisces was in 1848, when it coincided with the birth of Spiritualism in the United States. I expect we will see more and more mainstream interest in spiritual/intangible concepts, including intuition, telepathy and reincarnation. Earlier this year, neurosurgeon Eben Alexander made headlines with a book about his near-death experience. Stay tuned for more on this developing story in the next 14 years, which is how long Neptune will be in Pisces.
Bottom line: I will be writing a forecast for the weekend, and you will be here to read it. Which means you will still be around to take advantage of my Special Holiday Promotion: a one-hour personal astro-logical consultatation at a very reasonable price. Purchase one for yourself or better yet, for a friend. I’ve had so much fun making beautiful gift certificates to send all over the world…
