Saturday December 13th the Moon shifted into Cancer, its home, the Full Moon energy terminated with the shift into a new sign, and one of Jim Shawvan’s Opportunity Periods began. This one continues until about 5:30 pm, EST, on the 14th.

A number of things happen today, but the big one is the Finger of God in the “clumsy” signs. I’m not sure which astrologer wrote it, but years ago I read that Cancer, Sadge, and Aquarius are the “clumsy” signs. People with planets in these signs, especially in several of them, are supposedly prone to gafs.

That said, in this specific group of signs, a Finger of God forms today, with Moon (in Cancer) inconjunct Sun (in Sagittarius) and Neptune (in Aquarius). The lunar opposition to Jupiter joins into this group to create what I call a “peace sign in the sky.”

My interpretation is that this grouping will lead all of us to explore points of weakness, points where we stumble, and find answers in spirituality. (The two spirituality planets are Jupiter & Neptune; both are involved here.)

So, do note that some excellent shopping opportunities continue, but be aware that you might somehow stumble today. That isn’t bad, because you have the opportunity to (probably safely) learn an important lesson.

Regardless, get done what you can.  Monday isn’t a very forgiving day.

Late October 2008 (Fingers of God and Void Suns)

The adept reader can easily read Tuesday for him or herself. Wednesday, October 22nd proves far more interesting from my vantage point.

Tuesday evening, or early Wednesday morning in the UK, the Sun will become void of course after Sun Sextile Pluto in Sadge. We’ve spoken of Pluto many times and spoken of how the last degree of Sadge is often associated with deception. Sextiles are generally considered benevolent, but this sextile, with Pluto, in this location, is not.

The Sun remains void on Wednesday as the Moon in Leo first inconjuncts Jupiter in Capricorn and then Uranus in Pisces. These two inconjuncts form a Yod or “finger of God.”

As mentioned before, this aspect is all about making a decision. The decision may be transient, as the Moon moves quickly, but it will be heartfelt. This decision will be about being stable, if boring, or being risky, but having potential. Despite my choice of words, neither path is particularly better or worse. They are both about your own personal “karma.” This is probably the one area of astrology that has the most “free will.” Think about it; which path would you prefer?

In the middle of the Yod, the Moon will oppose Chiron in Aquarius. This is another “Peace Sign in the Sky.” We saw one of those earlier this year; the energy is revisited on this day. This time we have Moon Opposite Chiron rather than Mars Opposite Neptune. Different players with different attitudes in the same configuration.

But, these events perfect inside a Solar Void, and that tells us that once again we will miss the mark. Sorry to disappoint you. We also encounter the first three degrees of Scorpio which are “too early to tell.” That location is also (as we say here in Texas) “smack dab in the middle” of the “Via Combusta.” We discussed that before, too. The Via Combusta is the toughest territory between Leo and Aquarius. (Some might ask, “which side?” The answer is “either.”)

The Solar Void is over by late Wednesday in the U.S. or early Thursday in the U.K.

Starting Thursday, we might could recover to make some significant progress somehow, but then the waning Moon followed by the aspects of Halloween (discussed elsewhere) kick in. We’ll get results (Mercury moves out of the region of the shadow of the most recent retrograde), but Mars interacting with Saturn and Uranus guarantees that a fun time will NOT be had by all, if any. I still opt for “cleaning house,” whether it is the garage or the budget.

The time of the shrinking moon from the time of the Solar Void to the New Moon of the 28th is a good time to clean house and throw out the trash. (And, again, maybe find lost objects.) That is a bonus of housecleaning in Scorpio (and especially Pisces): lost objects surface. You know the battle cry of engaging in this activity full tilt: “oh, THAT is where I put that.”

Don’t underestimate the power of this; what you find may be VERY important.

All these aspects provide more evidence that the best time to “get things done” (besides housecleaning, investigations, and finding lost objects) will probably be November 8th.
