Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 5/3/2016: Expansive Bliss?
Go with the flow of any twists that may interfere with your efforts to move forward in a straight line, as the Pisces Moon is void between 1:08AM ET and 1:04PM ET. Aries drives the Moon for the rest of the day with its need to inspire and lead its fiery charge. With Mercury and Mars both retrograde, rushing ahead impulsively has its risks. Patience and focus can be your best friends. Don’t let this happen to you!
Yesterday I mentioned that the Taurus Sun would make a harmonious connection (a trine) to Jupiter, currently retrograde in Virgo. Planets in Taurus are known to stubbornly hold their positions. They need to build and maintain material comfort and security. Change is to be resisted at all costs!
Jupiter is the planet of expansion. Virgo refers to metabolic and digestive processes. Virgo seeks perfection. With Jupiter retrograde, we could expect an expansive process — or a reward — coming up for REview.
A trine between the Sun and Jupiter suggests a expansion of material comfort and security. Is this good or bad? Ask the Chinese farmer — and check out this article that hit the NYT home page yesterday morning: “After the ‘Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight.” Researchers kept in touch with many of the weight losers who had streamlined themselves so successfully on that reality TV show. Seems like all of them have gained some weight back — but why? And therein lies the surprise. What an apt reflection of an earthy Taurus Sun resisting change, enabled by an expansive (Jupiter) flow!
In other news, a Mercury Rx travel advisory: “Catching a Flight? Budget Hours, Not Minutes, For Security”. Other delays making headlines: Malia Obama, the president’s eldest daughter, graduates high school this year. She’s been accepted at Harvard, but won’t start classes until September of 2017. Taking a “gap year” is now a growing trend…
