Ohaiyo gozaimas from Japan! I’m not sure what time it is anymore, having flown halfway around the world in the past 36 hours…but let’s write a forecast for Monday (ET) anyway.. : )
Moon entered Libra Sunday at 8:55AM, suggesting a focus on the quality of relationships, perhaps inspiring us to connect in pleasing, gracious ways. Although, with rebel Uranus and take-no-prisoners Pluto challenging the Moon between 8-9PM ET Sunday night (which is any minute, from where I am typing in the early morning hours of Tokyo), some of us may have a few upsets to the status quo in our engagement with others. And this upset may be experienced as negative or positive.
Mercury changes sign Sunday night at 7:22PM ET, moving from persnickety Virgo to Libra, which is inclined to a more rational debate about big issues, not so much concerned with the petty details. Whenever planets change signs, it can take a day or two for our brains to make the adjustment, so be patient with your thinking and communication processes.
Lunar aspects on Monday are sweet and optimistic — a nice way to start the New Year, if you are observing one. L’shanna tova! That’s good news in your own personal world. On a global scale, however, there is plenty of turbulence and power issues to had all this week — as noted here in prior forecasts. Why? Ruthless Pluto turns direct at 1:05AM ET Tuesday, forcing power issues to the surface, much like a volcano that simply can’t be contained any longer. And the second of the seven Uranus-Pluto squares is exact on the 19th at 2:55AM ET — right on China’s Sun at 7 Libra (also as previously noted). One manifestation of this pattern can be seen in the protests that are happening in China over a territory dispute with Japan. Stay tuned for further developments on this story, as well as the ongoing protests in the Middle East against the U.S..
While Pluto and Uranus together certainly suggest breakdowns…but they also suggest breakthroughs, like this nifty piece about scientists now able to regenerate (a Pluto theme) organs from a patient’s own cells. For better or for worse, you are feeling the intense Pluto-Uranus action more if you were born around the 29th of December, March, June and September…or if you have a planet or angle around 7 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.
Voids for the week: Tuesday, Sept 18 from 7:30AM – 10:46AM ET; Thursday the 20th from 9:11AM – 12:34AM ET.
