I am a reporter with a unique beat. I use my understanding of planetary cycles to provide advance notice and analysis on the Zeitgeist of the day. If you have ever wondered “why is this happening now,” my insights will transform your experience of the headlines, adding new meaning and understanding. Call it Astrology for News Junkies. If you’re curious to know why the Impossible Burger is trending…or why the outcome of the 2019 Israeli elections was likely to be a shocker …or why “Woodrow Wilson, Stud Muffin” was a New York Times headline in December 2013, you will find it here, in over a decade’s worth of historical research and reporting.
Note that I do use astrological jargon in The Forecast in my effort to show how the planetary patterns are reflected in mundane events. I explain what the jargon symbolizes, so that all who want to understand the connections between astrology and the news may do so. However, I do not use astrological jargon in personal consultations, just plain English.
Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday 9/7/2010/in The Forecast
Back to work? Maybe, maybe not. The long weekend may be over in the US, but the Moon, even though it’s in analytical, task-oriented, perfection-driven Virgo, is still in the last day of the old cycle, working a bit like a lame duck elected official; the New Moon begins tomorrow at 6:30AM on the East Coast. During these “dead” moons, we might feel listless: a new cycle is about to begin but we may feel “in the dark” about what it is. If you’re at the office, use the day to wrap up old business and clear your desks in preparation for the new agenda that begins tomorrow.
General notes on this short week, which is chock-full of energetic shifts as several planets will change signs (Venus on Wednesday; Jupiter on Thursday) or direction (Mercury on Sunday; Pluto next Tuesday): stay loose and be patient with yourself and others if you’re finding you have to repeat yourself several times to be understood or you realize that once again, you can’t remember where you put your (glasses/water bottle/parking ticket).
Astro-logical Forecast for Friday 9/3/2010 and the Weekend/in The Forecast
Read yesterday’s forecast for thoughts on today’s Moon in Cancer. A need for emotional security is the prime directive for the Moon in this sign, so on this holiday weekend (Monday is a holiday in the US) the focus is likely to be what makes us feel comfortable and/or at home. Art, music, romance, spirit — all that makes life beautiful is also especially favored.
On Sunday, Moon enters playful Leo at 5:45AM and carries us through Labor Day. Playing on Labor Day — what a great idea. We’re in the dark side of the Moon — the New Moon happens on Wednesday AM, which is when the work week will really begin.
Astro-logical Forecast for Thursday 9/2/2010/in The Forecast
Today’s Moon — still in Gemini — makes lovely connections to Mars (action), Venus (social expression) and Neptune (imagination). It’s a good day to put yourself out there and see the best in people. Meetings and social gatherings of all kinds are favored…especially those involved with art, music, spirituality and/or service.
A postscript to yesterday’s post about those born with Moon in Gemini: they like words. A lot. Perhaps this explains why President Obama had all those words stitched into the border of the new rug in the Oval Office…
At 2:50AM Friday the Moon will move into watery Cancer, buffeted through the morning by the heavies in the Big T-Square Party (see forecast for 7/27/2010). Could be wet and wild, especially if you’re a hurricane about to hit land, which is a possibility here on the East Coast as we keep an eye on Hurricane Earl. Then again, what if everyone on the planet visualized that storm system moving off the coast and doing no damage at all? Think we could collectively create that reality?
