Another day to focus on perfection, organization and discrimination — suggested by the Moon and Mars in Virgo. If someone has a strong feeling about what that perfection ought to be, you may well hear about it around 7:36PM ET, when those two planets align. Factor in a hook-up between ruthless Pluto and mental Mercury, exact at 8:03 AM ET, and it’s possible that what you think or hear is a revelation — or brutally honest. Meanwhile — as noted in earlier forecasts, a rose-colored connection between nebulous Neptune and loving Venus will do its best to create the loveliest experience possible — even if it’s based on an ideal or an illusion. And isn’t fascinating that as I am writing this forecast, this story was published on the NYT website, reporting audience outrage when a brutal cellphone ring went off during an New York Philharmonic performance one of the most sublime pieces of music ever written http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/13/nyregion/ringing-finally-stopped-but-concertgoers-alarm-persists.html?hp It’s a good illustration of the potential consequences should the energy of these two hook-ups be working at cross purposes.
There’s also a certain physical drive that’s been building over the past two days — finding a productive channel for that energy is highly advised. For me, current patterns resulted in a compelling need to take a ballet class Thursday night: physical release, the beauty of music & dance and the concentration required to execute Virgo perfectionist moves across the floor — and no cell phones went off during the class. How about you?
Moon goes void at 8:58PM ET, on a harmonious connection between Moon and Sun in practical Capricorn. Happy hour and/or your date tonight could be an especially romantic escape, accompanied by sweet music, art and perhaps more than one transcendental libation. Along with the romance you may encounter a particularly intense mindset or conversation — but hopefully it won’t be as jarring as the concert performance described above — or as the latest on this building tension between the U.S. and Iran http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/13/world/middleeast/us-warns-top-iran-leader-not-to-shut-strait-of-hormuz.html?hp Send some positive light on that situation if you can; with Mars going retrograde for a from January 23rd to April 13th, the impulse to pick a fight can be high — with unfortunate consequences for the instigator of the conflict. In your own personal world, remember that Moon voids are best suited for chilling out — and that “crises” that turn up during voids — like the one tonight — are likely to be of no consequence. Happy Friday!!!
