Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 8/2/2013 & the Weekend: Why the Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

Moon continues its drift in Gemini, needing to think and talk about everything. Gemini is an airy, mental sign that needs to inform and be informed. Just ask anyone with Moon in Gemini how they feel when they do not know something (on the rare occasions when that happens). Answer: insecure. And gawd forbid a Moon in Gemini should ever be perceived as boring. It needs to be seen as terribly clever and entertaining — and intensely so. How many of these smartypants-types will you encounter today?

Today’s only exact aspect is the sextile between “loving Venus and horny Mars,” as astrologer Rockie Gardiner would have said. Sextiles facilitate cooperation in relationships — as noted yesterday — and we’ve had a lot of them all week. The Gemini Moon is highly flexible, so you could use this day to work out a kink in a relationship, assuming you can’t plan a full-day Moon void escape. For inspiration, here’s a provocative new study that argues that selfish people are doomed to extinction; it’s the people who know how to be selfless, communicative and cooperative that will one day rule the world. Scientific proof that “the meek shall inherit the Earth”? Well, whaddaya know! Here is the Cliff Notes version of the article…and here is the paper written by the actual scientists, complete with charts and mind-boggling mathematical equations. Moon in Gemini NEEDS you to have access to ALL of this information!

Supporting that study is another study arguing that selfless people have stronger immune systems than self-indulgent hedonists…while this study argues that emotional experiences and states are passed down genetically, generation to generation. So now you know where your irrational fears might have come from. Great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandma was simply being carried off by a Hun.

Horoscopes, by the way, can reveal much about one’s parents and grandparents, their personalities and the quality of the relationship you likely had with them. One day those scientists will catch up with us astrologers… ; )

There’s enough food for thought in those studies to carry you into the weekend, when the Moon will be in Cancer, shifting the focus to home, family and other core foundations. There are no Moon voids to deter your weekend shopping sprees . It’s all looking pretty lovely, with the usual caveats for upsets and power plays when the Cancer Moon is provoked by contact with the Pluto-Uranus square. That happens at 7:47PM ET Saturday and 1:37AM ET Sunday, respectively….which is when the emotionally-security focused U.S. will be closing its embassies in parts of the world. Sunday is also President Obama’s birthday.

In your own personal world, a brilliant, liberating,  independent and playful connection between the Leo Sun and rebel Uranus at 11:05AM ET Sunday puts its stamp on the entire weekend. Aim for new heights…including heights of awareness, consciousness and expression.
