Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 3/10/2014: Mercury Square Saturn — Part 3; Sneak Peek at the Week
Off to a dynamic start of the work week perhaps, as the Moon in proactive, home/emotional security-seeking Cancer joins up with optimistic Jupiter at 6:37am ET…and then faces a potential jolt, revelation or power play when it makes contact with the disruptive Uranus-Pluto square at 8:04AM ET and 12:16PM ET.
If you are not looking for a battle or a controversy, go about your business in afternoon (ET). If a serious conversation about hard, cold facts is what you seek, a challenge between mental Mercury and stern Saturn colors the day and is exact at 2:14AM ET Tuesday. This concludes a cycle that began on January 25th and was hit for a second time on February 19th. If you have a planet or angle around 23 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo, you’ll be more personally affected. Here’s a recap of headlines reflecting mind control and other heavy thoughts from last month; look for similar themes today.
Yea verily, today’s planetary patterns seem to be an apt backdrop for Edward Snowden’s virtual interview at SXSW; fascinating to note that his talk at 11AM CT has the Mercury-Saturn square right on the Ascendant (an angle) of the chart for 11AM CT in Austin, TX & the Moon in sensitive Cancer will be minutes away from an exact opposition from ruthless, corporate, corruption-exposing Pluto in Capricorn. You can watch the interview here. Equally fascinating: when Julian Assange spoke at SXSW on Saturday at 11AMCT, Mercury and Saturn were on the Midheaven (another angle of the chart). Coincidence or conspiracy?
The rest of the work week is relatively free of disruptive patterns, save the usual ongoing upheavals suggested by the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, and the potential reckless aggression suggested by Mars being retrograde. Exact patterns later this week include an easy connection between the Sun and stern Saturn on Thursday. This is useful for strategic planning, which is favored by the retrograde motion of action-oriented Mars.
Speaking of horoscopes for scheduled events (e.g. the speeches by Assange and Snowden noted above), the horoscope for the departure of the Malaysia Airlines plane (12:41 AM 3/8/2014 in Kuala Lumpur) that vanished shortly after take-off has nebulous Neptune squaring Moon, with both planets exactly on angles of the horoscope. This is a potentially bewildering and insecure aspect. Other planetary patterns are also troubling.
Your Moon voids for the week: Tuesday 3:50PM ET – 10:09PM ET; Friday 3:24AM – 10:17AM ET. Chill out during those natural rest periods if you can; avoid scheduling meetings and events you wish to be of consequence.
