…and how have you been over the past two weeks? Carried away by last Thursday’s meet-up of big big big Jupiter and the Sun, both in nitty-gritty Scorpio? Blindsided by the intensely ruthless perspective demanded by Friday’s tension between Venus (women, money, arts, social expression) and Pluto (establishment, power)? Hanging on the edge of your seats at the upsets and underdog wins (go Astros!) in Sunday’s nearly all-day Moon void? I know I was.
Exact planetary patterns are few and far between in the early part of this week. The most compelling pattern is one between Mars (aggression, action, warfare) and a point involving lean, mean Saturn and ruthless Pluto. The Saturn-Pluto thing suggests potential anguish…or actions taken in the face of great loss. Yesterday and today are the hottest days. If you have a planet around 6 degrees of Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, you may be pulled into a conflict or suffer an attack, even if you spend the entire day in your home office.
Exhibit A: your astrologer, who received a text from her bank yesterday asking if I’d ordered a replacement debit card — to be shipped to an address in Michigan. I didn’t — and I’d call that an attack. Fortunately, my bank was savvy enough to at least contact me before real damage could be done. Exhibit B: a huge kerfuffle exploding on the Facebook page of a group in which I serve as Fearless Leader. I did not start it, but I needed to resolve it as a win-win for all parties concerned. This kerfuffle occupied much of my brain space and writing energy for the past few days. I saw this potential weeks ago and wondered how it might erupt. Now I know. Astrology is amazing. Do you have any planets or points at 6 Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn?
In the news, we see two obviously explosive items: in New York, in which cyclists and pedestrians were killed by man driving a truck down a bike path; and in North Korea, where 200 were reportedly killed in a nuclear test accident.
Today is driven by the Moon in me-me-me Aries. Note the potential for a confrontation when the Moon is opposed by Mars in Libra at 1:43PM ET. Passive-aggressive or simply aggressive, whatever work. The Aries Moon makes its weekly clash with Uranus and Pluto tomorrow, continuing to shake, rattle and roll.
To be continued. I know there’s a lot to catch up on. Like…it’s Mueller Time! Meanwhile, I am absolutely, positively available for consultations to help you sort out these interesting times.
Thank you for reading this forecast.
