OK, break time is over, as of 2:39AM ET, when the Moon zoomed into RAMbunctious Aries — thus ending a 17 hour “go with the flow” Moon void in dreamy Pisces. Aries is a sign that prefers to fall downstairs because it’s faster than walking; however, such impulses may not blend well with the mental fuzziness that may be lingering, given that Mercury turned direct late Sunday afternoon. As you zip through your to-do list today, take a moment to review whatever groundwork was done during Mercury’s retrograde period. You may discover a few errors and omissions. It’s OK to take it slow as we get back up to speed. Be alert for possible shake ups and power plays in the early evening ET, as the Moon makes its weekly clash with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square.
Another planetary shift today is nebulous Neptune turning direct at 2 degrees of Pisces, thus ending a five month period of subtle focus on your own dreams and intuition for guidance. When a planet is retrograde, the suggestion is to turn inward on issues involving that planet, as opposed to looking outside the self. You’ll feel the effects of Neptune’s change of station more personally if you were born 2-3 days into Pisces, Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius…or if you have a planet or angle at 2 degrees of those signs. What kind of effects? Oh….perhaps you are feeling somewhat bewildered…or less inclined to be in Type A personality mode (if you are normally a Type A personality). You may find yourself needing to express your creativity — even if you have never thought of yourself as a “creative” person. You may also find being of service richly rewarding.
Meanwhile, we are likely to see some exciting, unconventional breakthroughs and disruptions in aesthetics, women and finance over the next couple of days. Why? Because Venus in Capricorn will be making exact contact with Uranus and Pluto. If you missed it, here’s the link to an earlier forecast about what we can expect under Venus-Uranus-Pluto alignments — starting in the sixth paragraph.
Since I followed my own astro-logical advice and made a dreamy, Mercury retrograde-inspired escape over the holiday weekend, I have not been terribly focused on the headlines. However, I did look at the chart for Typhoon Yolanda’s landfall in the Philippines: 20:45 UT on Nov 7 2013 in the town of Guiuan….and it’s what you’d expect to see. If you’re thinking the Uranus-Pluto square would be prominent in this chart, then you’ve actually been paying attention to this forecast for the past five — OMG — five years. Congratulations! You’d immediately notice the “make it happen” Capricorn Moon tightly conjunct ruthless Pluto, right on an angle…squared by disruptive Uranus at another angle. That suggests profound, sudden and total upheaval. You’d also see expansive Jupiter running wild in Cancer, a Water Sign, up front and center in the horoscope. That suggests the potential for something wet and wild, driven by a lot of hot air.
And speaking of Jupiter running wild, it may interest you to know that Jupiter refers to the liver and cholesterol, and that Jupiter has just turned retrograde, suggesting a review and rethinking of Jupiter issues. How fascinating to note the release of revised guidelines for managing and monitoring cholesterol and the use of statins, brought to you by the American Heart Association.
