Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 1/10/2013: Practical Magic
Waking up feeling inspired this morning (for those reading this in the U.S.)? Rose-colored connections from Venus and Moon in “make it happen” Capricorn to transcendental Neptune may stimulate creative and social expression in ways that are both practical and divine.
This is another morning to take note of your dreams. I suggest this because of the overnight hookup between Neptune (which rules dreams) and the Moon. You’ll have to test this theory to see if it’s true for you, but Moon-Neptune connections often stimulate intuition and imagination. And if you’re sleeping through these transits, sublime insights may be transmitted in your dream state. Consider keeping a journal of your dreams. Watch for repeating patterns or creative solutions to a problem that’s been on your mind. What is your subconscious trying to tell you? Consider getting a good reference book, too. A few months ago I picked up The Dream Dictionary from A to Z by Theresa Cheung — only $4.99 on the Barnes & Noble bargain rack. Such a deal! With gratitude to the reader in Austin, Texas who wanted to know, “after I note my dreams, what should I do with them?” P.S — consider making some of those dreams come true in real-life, too.
Meanwhile, Venus (referring to women, money, aesthetics and manners) entered Capricorn late Tuesday night (ET), demanding decorum and a pedigree in these areas. Venus in Capricorn knows exactly how to use its connections to climb up a ladder (preferably corporate), and over the next few weeks, so should you. However, Venus is currently being challenged by rebel Uranus (exact on Saturday), which makes the first week of this Venus in Capricorn more exciting than usual. Over the next few days you may find yourself mingling with all kinds of unconventional, yet credentialed types who instantly become your new best friend. These “sudden attractions” are typical under Venus-Uranus transits, when an open-minded, humanitarian, freedom-loving buzz permeates the air. And that buzz is the backdrop for this morning’s announcement of this year’s Oscar nominees. Coincidence or conspiracy?
It all goes swimmingly until around noon on the East Coast, when Moon is challenged by a square to that rebel Uranus. What flash of insight, declaration of independence or other disruption of the status quo will land on your plate? Deal matter-of-factly with whatever structural constraints and power plays crop up by the end of the day, though the temptation for emotional outbursts may be strong. This is a good time to be wrapping up old business and drafting your intentions for the next lunar cycle, which has much less planetary static than the last one.
The New Moon begins Friday at 2:44PM ET at 21 degrees of Capricorn and immediately goes void-of-course. Wrap up the week and skip out early, if you can. We’ll talk about the New Moon in tomorrow’s forecast…even though there’s still so much I want to tell you about all things astro-logical. Like…how the planetary patterns in Lincoln’s time are similar to patterns we’re experiencing today; how so many of the “matters of life and death” headlines we’ve been seeing lately are so very Saturn in Scorpio; why the event chart for that out-of-the-blue ferry accident that happened in Manhattan during yesterday’s void-of-course Moon is what you’d expect to see in a bewildering accident on the water; and what to do with all those gift cards you will never use (you can get cash for them — what perfect news to hit the wires the day after Venus enters Capricorn)….it just goes on and on. I need a radio show, so I can talk for an hour, preferably with other fascinating guests and callers. Wouldn’t that be fun? Gotta make that happen this year…who knows someone who can help make that happen? Get in touch with me, will ya?
