Don’t hope to hold secrets today, no hope of that exists with so much chatter in the air.  Following on the tail of Sunday’s squares, the Moon moves into Gemini and squares Ceres (which continues to be active). By itself, the Gemini Moon is chatty, but  Mercury conjoins the Sun later tonight as well.

Secrets are out.

The following chart, set in Dallas, shows the basic details.

Moon Enters Gemini (Dallas) on March 30th of 2009

Moon Enters Gemini (Dallas) on March 30th of 2009

Mars at Midheaven

Note that Mars is at Midheaven in this chart. The main hope for today is to avoid the almost inevitable fights and conflicts that may emerge from revealing so much so fast.

For athletes this is a good day. You may switch to a new team or manager and find that it benefits you well. Police officers and intelligence operatives may fare well also (as long as they are not wrongdoers themselves). A bad place to be, though, would be as an “agent provacateur.” If you are running a “sting” operation today you may get stung yourself by a television camera crew who sends it directly to a satellite feed.

Financial Markets

The financial markets are in trouble today not in the sense that anything economic is distressing them but that more of the truth will emerge about the misconduct of the past few years. Secretive Pluto in Capricorn (corporations and often finances (along with Taurus)) will lose to the chatty Moon today because of the help she receives from the Sun and Mercury.

Of course, not all secrets will be revealed, but today could represent a major “unraveling” for some. Do not be surprised if we discover that Madoff and Stanford are the tip of a larger iceberg.

Secrets Might Come Out During a Lawsuit

The 9th House is strongly colored by the current cluster of Jupiter, Chiron, and Neptune. Just in case Pluto thought he could keep secrets, he had better think again with these three in this place. Not only will it come out, but it will probably come out in “open court” in some circumstances.

For You and I Personally

For you, personally, be social, but avoid controversy (unless you are the kind of person that benefits from fights; if so, this is your day).

For the rest of us, today tends to be uncomfortable. (Sorry, I wish I could give a more cheerful forecast.)


You are very strong now. Generally, this day favors you. You can defeat most enemies, if that is your goal.


You are not as strong as you were Saturday. A friend of yours may have a very bad day. You would like to help, but you may just have to distance yourself from them for now. They may become angry if you do this. Use your judgment.


You are the center of controversy. This works well for some of you, but you could be very tired at the end of this day. You will realize (correctly) that tomorrow is a new day and something new is starting in your life.


Today is tough for you, too. Use today for downtown. You do not have to be the center of attention.


A very weird and “sideways” day for you. Your secrets could be “outed” as well, but you might just be an “innocent bystander.” Proceed carefully.


Today is just unpleasant for you. Normally you never worry much about diet, but you are for some reason now. Like Gemini, you will get a new start tomorrow.


The best position for you is to be the judge or mediator. Your job is to make peace today; just realize that peace will not be had today. Still, you are actually in a very good position.


It looks good for you. You seem centered and in control. But, more than any other sign, you could be easily blindsided today. As with Leo, proceed carefully.


Gemini Moon will not leave you alone. If your boss is a Capricorn, then they might be in a bad mood. They will be in a very bad mood if you inadvertently disclose their secret. Even so, avoid the temptation to lie. Talk about the weather or something else generally considered “neutral.” Stay away from controversey today.


What an awful day! But, if you avoid deceit and just work hard, doing routine tasks that must be done anyway, you might actually make some money today. Avoid risks.


Many people are looking to you for leadership. If this is your day in court then you can win. You might be the strongest sign today. As with others, avoid lying.


Aquarius may be the strongest sign today, but you are the star. You do not mean for it to be this way, but you may ultimately be in control. Capricorn and Scorpio, whether they realize it or not, will have to come by you to get things done. Just don’t flaunt it. With a gentle, VERY gentle nudge, they can deduce the reality of the situation.

Sun Conjunct Mercury occurs several times a per year, each (pair of) conjunctions associated with the Mercury Retrograde period.  Astrologers as a group dislike this aspect, referring to the planet conjunct the Sun as being “combust.”

Without elaborating on the nuances of “combust,” know that today will likely be characterized by communications problems in certain areas.  Courtrooms and trials may be affected; universities and libraries may encounter glitches (possibly of a fundamental nature), and sales & marketing problems may be derailed.

Diplomacy is affected by Sadge, and it is the sign of both the foreigner and the Ambassador.  If any of this sounds like you, then you might encounter some challenges today.  Today is better for: Aries, Leo, Sadge.  Today is “okay” for Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.  Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces will tend to not like this day.

Chiron Dominates Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and Fourth of July

One charming aspect of a blog such as this one is the freedom to explore a variety of topics. Astrologers who make sun sign predictions for a living are constrained into writing particular kinds of predictions for a particular kind of audience: the “general audience.” Don’t get me wrong, some sun sign work is excellent, but the opportunity for exploring other options is either unavailable or not a topic for discussion.

That said, Chiron seems to be a major player in the next few weeks through early July. Just in case you don’t know, Chiron is the “wounded healer” and a centaur who is an important mythological basis for Sagittarius. Being wounded, he learns to heal by healing himself, and then teaches others and becomes a mentor. Having passed on his lessons, he necessarily dies, the ultimate “wound” which permits a “healing” of society by the blossoming of his students into autonomous individuals (and, ultimately, themselves teachers).

The mythos of Chiron is tough, and the energy doesn’t tend to be pleasant. But, Chiron gives us the gifts of healing and both being a mentee and a mentor. Some have called Chiron the “rainbow bridge” because he connects the stability of Saturn to the revolutions of Uranus. That is, Chiron binds these two seemingly different faces of the cosmos together.

That said, as noted in an earlier post, Chiron is rather active Memorial Day Weekend of 2008. But, the activity doesn’t stop there. Retrograde Chiron will revisit issues opened Memorial Day Weekend when he is contacted by Retrograde Mercury on Thursday, May 29th.. He’ll be trined by Venus (in Gemini) on June 10th. That Venus, and Mercury, will be different. Both will have their energies transformed by conjunction with the Sun (combust) on June 7th and 8th (9th for Pacific Time). Sunday, June 8th could be another difficult time if you had “issues” opened on Memorial Day Weekend. Any kind of “truce” reached on that day will be pinned on false hopes engendered during a Leo Moon Void of Course.

Venus trines Neptune on Friday the 13th, the Sun follows suit on the 14th, and retrograde Pluto revisits Sadge.

WHAT does that mean? It means that despite our hopes and happy thoughts (Neptune & Venus), Pluto (investigations, secrets, and spycraft) will revisit the intrigues of the past twenty years, particularly as they relate to Churches, Courts (the Judiciary), and Higher Education. Neptune activity often brings exposure of secrets, so don’t be surprised if scandals surface at this time. Father’s Day, this year, may bring profound revelations for some.

Given that the Sun will be in President Bush’s Solar 12th House during this period, exposure of a new secret or scandal, particularly if it involves FISA courts, wouldn’t be very surprising.

Mercury (this time direct) will again trine Chiron on July the 3rd. Unquestionably, the holiday weekends for Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and Independence Day (U.S.) will be dominated by Chironic activity in 2008.

[Errata: in my original post, above, I made the mistake of describing the weekend of June 8th as “Father’s Day” weekend. It is not. It is the weekend before. So, here is my updated analysis, if you make plans for Father’s Day on the weekend of the 8th, don’t get your hopes too high. And, especially if you do the planning the afternoon of Sunday, June 8th, then expect your plans to change or for the event to be a little different than what you initially expect. I’ll post the rest of my update in a newer entry.]
