Wednesday April 15th Moon enters Capricorn (tests, trials, and tribulations) after a few days sojurn in Sadge.  The Sun sextile Chiron on Tuesday brought the necessity to at least consider issues of teaching and/or healing.  Wednesday’s Mars conjunct Uranus will bring disruptions, especially to computers.  My guess is that we will hear more about the “Conflicker Worm.”

The Sun also aspects Neptune (dreams, delusions, and confusion) on this day.  Neptune can favor psychic activities, but the rest of us may just be confused or misled.  A few may have truly profound insights on this day.

Moon conjunct Pluto at this time adds more stress, particularly with regard to control dramas.  Mars, Uranus, Neptune, and the Sun tell the Moon and Pluto that control will not be had this day.  Neptune may offer the illusion of “control,” but Neptune is famous for impermanance.

With that cheerful prediction, I might add that we receive some rest with the Grand Trine of Thursday April 16th.  If your birthday is on that date this year, this may be a particularly fortuitous year for you.  Earth and water signs will particularly benefit this day.  Fire and air may still feel more of the aftershocks of Wednesday, but they will get SOME relief as well.

Friday brings back the pressure and intensity, particularly with the Capricorn void that begins the Fourth Lunar Quarter.  Buyers are favored, but probably not during the void.  My experience with voids is that you often get what you ASK for, but not what you WANT.  I have in mind an audio device bought many years ago to play voice.  It did that; but any attempt to play music uncovered the fact that the device was useless for that purpose.  Avoid purchases before about 1:30pm CDT (Dallas time).

Much of the rest of Friday is pressure back on.  Venus makes a Direct Station, and this signals a shift either in money, physical health, or romance.  Finances will shift, though the direction is difficult to determine.  The same is true for health, except more will have a favorable shift than not.  Romance generally will be ending of a short-lived relationship, or possibly the beginning of a longer-term one.

Mercury trines Saturn Friday evening (in Dallas), indicating that this is a very good day for detail work.  If you did NOT get your taxes in on the 15th, then you definitely want to get them out on Friday.

The Moon’s square to the Sun on Friday marks the beginning of a double void.  For the Moon, that period ends Friday afternoon.  But, the Sun continues to be void until Sunday evening when the Sun enters Taurus.  The first three degrees of any sign has been called “too early to tell” by some Horary Astrologers.  Generally, this tends to be a “wait and see” period.  Routinely “launches” should be fine, depending on the project.  But, avoid anything “too experimental” until a bit later.

No promises on when I will be able to write more predictions.

Weekend of January 30th Dominated by Mercury Direct Station

What eclipses this weekend (sorry), is the Mercury Direct station. This this station follows so closely after the eclipse is even more of a sign of changes to come.

For many of us, personally, this presents another major turning point in the diet issue. Will we feast or will we famine? If you are fighting this issue, this weekend is an important milestone. You will especially find Saturday frustrating, as your plans to stay on track are upset by Mercury changing directions. As I have written before, keep in mind that if you fall down you can get back up.

But even if you are not fighting the diet fight, you will feel the shift in other ways.

Friday morning starts slowly, but the day becomes more “lively” with a possible power struggle or financial issue in the afternoon.

Friday has a quiet Piscean period which includes a void from about 3am Dallas time (6am UK) until the Moon enters Aries after 9am. Aries Moons tend to bring about activity. And this Moon squares Pluto early, as early Aries Moons will do for the next few years.

Plutonic activity often signifies concerns over taxes. (It is that time of year again, isn’t it?) This can be a sign of other disputes, or perhaps intense sexual activity. By itself, it is not a major aspect, but following so closely after an eclipse it can signify that you will see a major turning point in your life this afternoon. Keep your eyes open.

The day ends pleasantly enough with an aspect to Jupiter.

Saturday is the peak day in the diet battle, and Saturday also brings to fore issues with with “will” and the intensity needed to get things done. This is embodied in a “finger of God” that has Ceres (food) and Saturn (structure, willpower) at the focal point, and the Moon in Aries at one fork and five planets in Aquarius at the other fork.

The five planets in Aquarius speaks to use tending to decide to do “what the group wants to do.” If you have a support group, this is a good time to attend activities. Go to OA if you attend that, or an extra Weight Watchers if you attend that.

For many of us, we see a drama that includes three different groups: (1) a group of people, possibly five or more, who advocate THEIR viewpoint; (2) an authority figure and possibly a “young lady” (who could be engaged to marry); and (3) a lone, but exteremly strong, female. When we think of this “lone female” think of Diana the Warrior.

I cannot say who will win this battle of wills, but I can say that the drama will be a lively one. Enjoy!

Thursday Jan 29, 2008 Piscean Moon Down Time

This is a day spent best in down time. The Piscean Moon tells us that as we near the Mercury Direct Station (which marks the end of the Retrograde, but not of the weirdness).

The Mercury Retrograde weirdness ends a little after the Direct Station. In our case, that means next week, probably “about” February 8th.

Today, try not to take on any major projects if you can avoid it. Your weaknesses will be exposed, and you will have to regroup to do it better. Better to discover these weaknesses privately, yourself, rather than to be “surprised” (and embarrassed).

This weekend is a big one, so stay tuned.

Chiron Direct October 2008

One more footnote: Chiron makes a direct station on Saturday, October 28, 2008. Planetary stations have a way of disrupting or causing a general uneasiness. This one especially affects anyone with health issues. And, since Chiron is in Aquarius, this also affects “the People.”

For many, this is “Halloween Weekend.” (Now we celebrate the weekend before the evening before the Hallowed Day.) Accidents, mischief, or intended victimization this weekend has the potential to spur “real change” into how some things are done.

A Short Post About Mercury Turning Direct, June, 2008

Starting “by” the afternoon of Wednesday June 18th, and continuing for a period of time that isn’t fully agreed upon, a bit of turmoil will come into the lives of many people. This is marked by the Direct Station of Mercury on the morning of Thursday, June 19th of 2008. If you had any plans run afoul on Wednesday afternoon or evening, you can chalk that up to the influence of the station following on the heels of the Full Moon (Sun = Gemini / Moon = Sadge).  Here is another description of Mercury turning Direct.

This period “cleaning up from the Retrograde” will continue AT LEAST until Saturday or Sunday. For some (many?) the effects of the Mercury Retrograde Period will be felt until July 4th or 5th. After that holiday, time to move “full steam ahead.” In this period, some interesting surprises are to be expected. Cancerians can expect at least a little relief in the form of a bit of unexpected cash from a possibly forgotten source.

Expect a longer entry about this station, along with some discussion of Sun-Pluto Opposition on Friday and the Mars-Neptune Opposition on Saturday. These conflicts pit the strong, direct personality against the powerful personality of hidden secrets as well as the high energy and possible violent personality against the poetic illusionist. Won’t children born on these dates be “interesting”?

Sun-Pluto will especially affect Gemini-Sadge (and, to a lesser degree, Virgo-Pisces), and Mars-Neptune will affect Leo-Aquarius (and, to a lesser degree, Taurus-Scorpio). We’ll dig a little deeper in the next post.

Please check back by Wednesday Evening or Thursday Morning about suggestions regarding how to navigate the period through Monday, June 23, 2008. Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel.
