Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 5/23/2012: Greetings From the Big Easy

Re-read yesterday’s forecast on nebulous Neptune’s challenge to the Sun at 3 Gemini, exact tonight at 4:57PM ET…followed by another nebulous challenge to mental Mercury at the same degree of Gemini, exact Friday at 5:38PM ET. If you have a planet or key point — e.g., midheaven or ascendant around 3 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and/or Pisces, you are likely feeling this cotton candy transit more intensely than the general public. I happen to fall into this category, and today I managed to leave a iPad on an airline ticket counter and a pair of prescription glasses at a restaurant — d’oh! However, since I am oh-so lucky (and can sing a song to prove it), helpful angels chased after me with said left-behind items as I went merrily on my way.  Who else has a planet at 3 Gemini? That’s the degree of Barack Obama’s Moon — and this was mentioned briefly in Monday’s forecast.

The upside of this transit  is that my spirits are soaring, like a bunch of helium balloons. And I can’t think of a better place to be right now than the mystical city of New Orleans, which is hosting UAC, a big giant international astrology conference,  over the next several days. Of course Venus is retrograde, suggesting opportunities to reconnect and/or rekindle past relationships, and I’m seeing that manifest as I reconnect with friends, mentors and colleagues I haven’t seen in a few years. I am also making a super-conscious effort to project warmth, charm and appreciation in every social interaction during this retrograde period and New Moon cycle. I can confirm that these efforts are not unnoticed by the Karma Police, as the quality of said social interactions has been deeper and more joyful.  How about you?

With Moon in Cancer today thru 6:11PM ET on Friday, the day is driven by issues relating to emotional and homeland security, including home, Mom, money and apple pie. Efforts to hold on to something dear may be disrupted overnight, suggested by a challenge to the Moon by rebel Uranus at 10:30PM ET…followed by another challenge from ruthless Pluto at 1:34 AM ET. Or you may experience a flash of insight involving an emotional security matter — one that ultimately sets you free.

Get it off your desk today or tomorrow, as Moon will be void of course from 10:34AM ET thru  6:11PM ET. Can’t you start the three-day Memorial Day holiday weekend a day  early?
