Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 1/2/2013: Happy ’13!

…and a very Happy New Year, to YOU!

If you’re heading back to the office, you can move with efficiency and attention to detail, courtesy of the Moon in Virgo. Two supportive connections to potent Pluto and disciplined Saturn around 6:30AM ET can push you forward with depth, emotional connection and practical application. A harmonious connection between the earthy Sun in Capricorn and the Virgo Moon is the icing on the cake, only without the sugar crash.

There’s a buzz in the air regarding communication, travel and mindset, courtesy of mental Mercury about to be challenged by the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square (exact Thursday AM and Sunday AM). Talk of rebellion, innovation, revelation, transformation, power plays, resources, corruption exposed and moving beyond borders will likely be front and center in the headlines. You are personally affected by this aspect if you have an angle or planet between 4 and 11 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn.

If you have to get something out the door, do it today or Friday. The Moon will be void-of-course from 7:15AM ET to 8:11PM ET on Thursday, so one thing you will want to avoid doing is having the first session of the 113th Congress convene on that…oh…(long pause)…never mind. It’s already on their calendar for 12PM in Washington DC. (cue sound of head banging on wall now). Sigh. More on the significance of that event in tomorrow’s forecast. Apparently there is a silver lining…

So. What do planetary patterns suggest for 2013, and what does it mean to you? I will tell you over the next few days in detailed discussions of the following:

  • Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
  • Neptune in Pisces
  • Saturn in Scorpio
  • Jupiter in Gemini and Cancer

Right now I would like to share a little New Year’s Eve story. For some reason during the void-of-course Moon in Leo on Monday, I was inspired to shred all the receipts from 2000-2005 that I’d carefully organized in accordion files — one for each year.  Apparently you don’t have to keep these files for more than seven years, and I really wanted to create some space in my storage closet. Now as you know, Moon voids suggest a surprise twist or delay in project undertaken during such times. And boy was I surprised to discover — in the file for 2003– three friends from the Stone People Family.Really, who keeps rocks and crystals in their tax receipt files, especially a folder labelled “Office Supplies”.

First:  a large amethyst crystal that fits with perfection in the palm of my hand. I don’t remember how this came into my possession, only that I got it decades ago and obviously had not seen it since 2003. Amethysts are associated with psychic ability. Second: a heart made of rose quartz, which is associated with love. No idea where that stone came from. Third: a small beige-brown stone — perhaps jasper (good for grounding) — upon which is inscribed, “Believe”.  No idea where that came from, either. Any of you psychics out there have a clue?

Such a precious New Year’s gift had to be shared with others. My wish for you, dear Reader, is that you may be blessed with the power of intuition (amethyst), love to heal a broken heart (rose quartz) and faith that stems from a solid foundation (jasper). May these carry through 2013 and always!

And yes, yes, YES…I realize yesterday was a holiday and some of you were still recovering from TMC (too much champagne). So if you’d like to take advantage of my super amazing holiday special (at a perfectly fabulous price), the offer is still valid through today…with gratitude to those of you who asked. Besides, I do not want you to feel like you’re having a day like the two dinosaurs in this very clever cartoon…
