Saturday, January 9th 2016

Saturday is a day of subtle aspects (Noviles) and a New Moon, just two days past Sun Square Uranus and Jupiter Retrograde Station.  Noviles can bring acquisition of special skills and the Uranus square can brings insights, but this is a Capricorn New Moon during Mercury Retrograde.  Keep those new ideas practical if you plan to implement them, write down the weirder ones for later review, and know that any new projects you start may need tuning or review later this month or in February.  While technically this is the “weekend,” in many ways it feels a bit like a workday.  Take advantage of that but proceed carefully and methodically.

Venus conjunct Saturn is in play, currently, and we think that is (at least) as important as the New Moon (for some people).  While that aspect can be interpreted a number of ways, we will focus on ONE of them for the next few days (ignoring, for example, the impact we would expect it to have on financial markets).

Sometimes Venus / Saturn signifies a “May-December romance” of the variety of Anna Nicole Smith and J. Howard Marshall had.  Others would say that such a comparison is unfair.  Still others would ask, “what was wrong with that?”

If that kind of arrangement interests you, today is the day to make progress in that area.  And, if you meet someone “interesting” who is from a different generation from you, and you would be interested in “getting to know them better,” then know that today that is possible.  (Make your move now or forget about it!)  Just know that, if you enter a relationship of this kind, you MUST have follow-through on Saturday and Sunday and next week.  Failing to “call,” send flowers, and so forth, at this time, will mean that your efforts will be lost and the window will close.

Nefrit’s Chart

Reader Nefrit has requested analysis of her natal chart.

Based on the data provided, here is the chart produced in Astrolog:

[click to enlarge]

Nefrit has her Sun in late Scorpio with her Moon in early Pisces; the two are 102 degrees apart,  They are trine by sign but not by degree.  Saturn will trine her Moon in 2013 but not contact her Sun until somewhat later (probably 2014).  She has experienced her first Saturn return and the associated transformation.  Saturn will continue to bring transformation, particularly as it conjuncts Venus and Uranus.  This happened early in her life as well, probably about age 8 to 10 years of age.  Something rather profound likely happened then, such as a divorce of parents, a move to a new city or country, or something else similarly profound.

Particularly interesting is her close relationship between the Sun and Ceres,  Ceres is representative of feast and famine.  Prior to the 20th century, when famine was common, Ceres had a different meaning.  It meant actual famine.  Today, it usually signifies a pattern of preoccupation with weight and weight loss.  Usually it signifies also a pattern of extreme diets followed by a the “rebound” effect of gaining the weight back plus new additional weight.  Nefrit will have to carefully guard against being ensnared by this or a similar pattern.  In a worst case scenario, it could signify an eating disorder such as bulimia.

Mercury, Juno, and Neptune are essentially conjunct near 15 Sagittarius.  Her communications are how she gets things done, but sometimes they are unclear.  Worst case either she or the other party engages in outright deceit.  In her original request, she asked about boyfriends and romance.  Based on this aspect, and her Sun/Moon position, we recommend that she favor partners with water sign Sun/Moon.  However, her current Gemini boyfriend can work.  The issue of communications is important in all relationships, but heightened for her.

Juno, of course, was the jealous wife of ever-philandering Jupiter.  Jupiter cheated on her almost constantly.  Nefrit would benefit from studying the mythology and stories of Juno and how to address those issues.

With a sensitive Pisces Moon, dishonest partners more deeply wound her than others.  The issue with Ceres (and weight / weight loss) compounds the problem.  Uranus and Venus are essentially conjunct, so she may have a predilection for what might be termed “unusual” relationships.  This could range from the May/December variety to GLBT to those that are truly “kinky.”  As I watch Craig Ferguson while I write this, I hear the announcer mentioned “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Sex Toys.”  Is that a coincidence?
We note that the Moon in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer trine the Venus / Uranus duo; this forms a grand water trine making this combination particularly important in her chart.  The Venus / Uranus duo tend to affect both her Moon (her deep internal self) and her career (Jupiter).  Despite a preference for “creative romances,” we suspect that she has a deep yearning for a family (Jupiter in Cancer).  If that is not feasible, she will tend to work in areas that involve water or fluids (shipping by sea, the oil industry) or working with families (possibly social work).

Of course, we are not saying any of this is necessarily “true” in the form described.  Planetary positions and aspects can be expressed in a large variety of ways.  These are just the most obvious interpretations.

We invite her response and clarifications.

January 7th 2009: Moon Trines Aquarian Planets

Tags: , , , , , , ,

A very small window exists where you might be able to get what you want, if you play your cards not only right, but quickly.

Moon is void until noon Central. After that it enters Gemini and immediately trines Jupiter at 1pm CST. This is *THE* time this month to ask for a new job, raise, corner office, etc. Even if you cannot GET what you ask for, you can plant the seed today at this time.

By 2:30pm CST, maybe a little earlier, the sweet cream has turned to sour milk. If you did not get a “yes,” then drop the issue at this point.

Later in the evening, we find ourselves in cross-currents.  Moon Squares Venus (usually unfavorable) but trines Mercury (usually favorable).

Translation: you may find yourself in a disagreement with a female (even if you are female).  OR, you may be on the sidelines observing a dispute between two females.  If not a woman then either fiscal or physical issues will present as problems.

However, our communications (or transportation) is slightly improved. The Moon trine Mercury brings a very small modicum of relief to the impending retrograde.  So, if you need to clarify miscommunication, and the other party is not TOO angry, this would be a good time to do it.

Weekend of Friday, June 13th, 2008 through Wednesday June 18th

Father’s Day Weekend, 2008

Friday is Friday the 13th, and you should celebrate it! Really! A fun time awaits you.

In North America, the workday is absorbed by a void moon in Libra. (UK and Europeans will only experience this in the morning of their 8a to 5p workday. If you are in UK or Europe, please adjust your times.) Officially, by consensus of most astrologers, the moon v/c is a time to “lay low.” Based on my experiences, I agree. (I wish I had recorded these experiences so that I would have at least some form of empirical data to back me up.) Other interpretations say that voids are a great time to clean out and throw away. Still others say it is a spiritual time, a time to center yourself. All of these interpretations can be simultaneously true.

Moon v/c Friday the 13th of June

Many people consider Friday the 13th to be unlucky. For most people, that simply will not be true today. The Moon v/c is considered a tough time, too, as described above. But, I’d be willing to be this void is a little different and this “Friday the 13th” is even more different. The morning will be interesting, be assured of that.

Carrying the theme from most of the week, this is a time time when the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter are “best aligned” to form a Grand Trine. This blog isn’t named “Grand Trines” by accident. This kind of thing tends to be a “fun time,” and (if you can muster the motivation) can be a time of lasting accomplishment. Void are specifically NOT associated with “lasting accomplishment”; the void is historically interpreted as “nothing will come of this.” But, I bet this void is an exception.

This is THE time to persuade people with beautiful words and beautiful images. This may be the best luck you have on any day, including Fridays 13. If you are a writer or artist, you might do some of the best work of YOUR ENTIRE LIFE this day, particularly in the morning. And, once the moon moves into Scorpio, the energy will change into a powerful sexual and romantic evening.

Evening of Friday the 13th of June and Saturday the 14th

THIS *IS* the hot “Date Night” of the summer, and maybe the year. Commitments made this evening may be overly optimistic, but both sides will feel a strong sense of commitment. Don’t go out with anyone you wouldn’t want to marry. As mentioned before, Saturday presents the beginning of a time of revisiting the previous period dating back to “about” 1990. Some spillover from Friday is inevitable, and it will be viewed in terms of this past period. If you are young, and fell for someone Friday night, this could represent a HUGE turning point for you. The rest of us might experience that, too. Others (probably including myself) may take this time to envision how they would LIKE for things to be. This is a good time to decide “who you want to be when you grow up” even if you are in your 80’s or 90’s or beyond.

Sunday Morning: Avoid the Fight

Sunday morning may face resurrection of old issues and anger surfacing. The Moon (Scorpio) activates an opposition between Mars (Leo) and Chiron (Aquarius). This could be a time of the CLASSIC argument between the young Daughter (Moon) and her Father (Mars in Leo) about that new young man. Of course, the genders aren’t set in stone, but that is the image that comes to mind. What is curious is who will be “Chiron” in this situation. Probably NOT Mom unless she is a healer (Nurse or Physician or similar). Could be a sibling, but probably will either be a grandparent or close friend of the family. Some people will drink or use drugs this weekend, and Sunday morning will be the breaking point that puts them in treatment. Sunday evening will lead to a truce of some kind that will be characterized by another void (means it won’t last) and inconjuncts (either false hopes or tough decisions).

Monday: Resolution of the Conflict

Monday brings an odd kind of resolution. Alcoholics or those mentally ill may enter the hospital without incident, if they weren’t taken by force on Sunday. Mars opposition Chiron during the night sets up some tough lessons or issues regarding healing. Some will have had accidents over this weekend, and Monday will be like waking up. A few will have had some severe accidents, and they’ll “wake up” Monday to see that the arm or leg really is gone. Others will have a court day on this day. Those who followed the path of romance will have some kind of interaction with either someone foreign or in education or possibly the court system. The key person will probably be female, and possibly a bit “Matronly.” They’ll have advice, and it’ll be tough, but it better be heeded carefully.

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

The energy of Monday continues with commentary from Mercury, Chiron, and Mars. A good day to both take action and watch your temper. What you say today makes a big difference.

Wednesday, June 18, 2008, Full Moon

Wednesday brings a culmination of the events of Monday and Tuesday. The Moon is full, and some of the young lovers will elope. If you ARE going to elope, please do so by Tuesday evening. By Wednesday afternoon, the Moon wanes and this will disfavor your new marriage. Others will be compelled to “right action,” and they will try to repair any damage that occurred over the weekend, particularly on Sunday morning. A few will want to “check out of treatment.” Family members who comply, who “enable” them, will make a mistake if they go along with this. The waxing moon will make the situation much worse. Financial sectors may receive some good news to ameliorate the bad news of the weekend and Monday. For others, the Full Moon coupled with Venus opposite Pluto will experience another highly charged, probably highly sexual, encounter this evening. The Labor and Delivery rooms will be full “about” 270 days from this date.

Wednesday after the Full Moon, and Beyond

Wednesday Afternoon: after the full moon circa Noon, the moon conjuncts Pluto and both are opposite Venus as well as the Sun. If you want to patch up things from Friday/Sunday, this is the time to do it. Once the window is past, recovery from the injury is difficult. Don’t procrastinate on this. And, be clear. Being coy or depending on innuendo will NOT be the right thing to do under these circumstances. Lay your cards on the table or walk away from the game.

This is also good day, after the full moon, to either start a diet or make the necessary preparations to get started. Pay bills with an eye to eliminating debt. Some delays in these matters may occur because Thursday June 19th Mercury “Goes Direct” Mercury changes direction on Thursday. It moves forward again, but slowly. So, starting Wednesday, try not to “push anything through.” Even with your launch on Monday or Tuesday, you shouldn’t start “pushing” until (at the very earliest) Saturday. Some time next week is probably better, as long as you aren’t trying to “grow” it. If you MUST make purchases, try to defer them until at least Saturday or the following week. Chances are that you’ll get lower prices.

Predictions by Sign from Friday June 13th through Wednesday June 18th

Key things to note for everyone: an “interesting” void Friday morning; very romantic Friday night for many; a time to either do artistic things at home or go to the movies Saturday (but NOT major purchases); Sunday: avoid the fight; Monday: a bit of difficulty left from Sunday then resolution; Tuesday: Full Moon is a good time to act for some and bad for others; Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday: lay low because MERCURY IS CHANGING DIRECTIONS and Friday is mostly void.


You’re too hot to handle Friday morning. Opposing forces make you more determined, and you SHOULD push through. Don’t sign any contracts, yet. Just know that you can get what you want. Friday night could be a little uncomfortable, despite what was said above. Saturday could prove to be an exceptionally “lucky” day for you. Sunday, try not to be involved in any spats unless you have to. But, if you are a Dad or Head of the Family, you’ll tend to win them if you are in them. Monday also favors you, but will still be a tough day, as described above. Tuesday is one of the more powerful days of the year for you. Your sun will Grand Trine the Moon and Mars. You’ll want to hang out and be lazy, but this is a day where you can really “get things done” and what you do will tend to have a lasting impact. Rest, if possible, starting Wednesday afternoon.


Avoid “deals” that are presented Friday morning. Chances are good that they are scams.

Friday evening will be good to you, and you may be faced with an important decision. The call for romance for Taurus will be very strong now. Even if conflict emerges over the weekend, you’ll be able to get jump started the relationship with your new sweetheart on Wednesday. Try giving that new special someone a call Wednesday morning. *IF* Friday really doesn’t work out, then you may meet someone who DOES turn your head on Wednesday morning. Do make certain you are in touch by Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.

Re-evaluate long term goals on Saturday. You really do need to know where you stand.

Sunday: avoid the fights iv possible. If you get drawn into them, they can become truly explosive. Monday is very weird for you. You can get certain things done, but they must involve order and organization. Avoid “fly by night” schemes and anything that smacks of “multi-level marketing.” Tuesday and Wednesday aren’t the best days for you. Avoid extravagant purchses, particularly of intangible things such as software. You’ll almost certainly be disappointed. Creation of debt is a VERY bad idea at this time. Next Thursday & Friday things are a little better for you.


This is your time, all of it, unless you drink or drug. If you DO drink & drug, then you may have an event that FINALLY gets you sober. Try not to be physically injured in the process. Tuesday, you’ll be tempted to leave the hospital if you are in one. Don’t. If you do NOT drink & drug, then this is YOUR time. That is, this is *THE* best days of the year for you. Decide what you want, and take steps to put it in motion. As with other signs, avoid the Sunday morning altercation. Whatever you plan to launch, launch by Tuesday evening. You may not believe this, or see it, but the window to effectively launch your project, or some key piece of it (if it is already underway), will close by Noon (Dallas Time, aka “Central”) of Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will prove disastrous for your Big Launch. Do it by Tuesday, or not at all. Also, if you have NOT had your birthday by Monday, you should wait until next week at the earliest. Some of you, those who have not yet had your birthday, may be tempted by a project you should NOT take on. But, if you’ve had your birthday this year, then DO IT NOW! Also: you need to read Sagittarius, below.


Where do I begin? You are probably in your twelve house. Not many things favor you at this time, so YOU should AVOID action. Planning and visualization should be your strategy. Let others play out their dramas, and don’t intervene unless you must. This is a good time for some of you to get sober. Others will have to help family members, but avoid “enabling” them. If you DO meet the “love of your life” at this time, avoid major commitments until your birthday.

If you are female, DEFINITELY avoid becoming pregnant, or risky sex of any kind, at this time. You WILL be tempted by someone, count on it! If it isn’t risky sex, then avoid other temptations of the “Traveling Salesman.” Also: plesae read Capricorn. Some of that will apply to you as well.

Try to avoid the fight Sunday. I think you can stay out of it unless you are either the Father or the “Head of Household.” If you must join, then KNOW where you stand. You’ll know by doing what the other signs should do as well: think about your hopes and dreams on Saturday and reduce them to written words on paper.

Okay, that all sounds a bit too “gloom and doom.” Venus will move in to support you starting Wednesday. She’s very much “in your corner,” but what does that mean? Maybe you’ll have support from a woman who enters your life, possible a rather beautiful lady. If you are a single guy, this new person may be what has been missing in your life. If you are a lady, this new woman may be the Fairy Godmother who transforms you into a princess. Others will receive financial support; still others will find that either a Taurus or Libra moves into to help (especially a Taurus, but possibly a Libra). Expect help in terms of love or money or both. Could also be in the form of improved health. You might actually find advantage during the difficult period of the Mercury Direct Station.

So, keep you chin up. Things will improve.


This is a good time for you, with the caveats described above. Remember, YOUR solar 12th house will apply some time on or after June 21st until the time of your birthday. So, avoid making commitments NOW that require completion THEN. Taking a course in summer school might be okay, especially if it involves writing, art or poety. Computer programming & web design (especially web design) might work for some of you. As mentioned, avoid the fight Sunday morning if you can. Some of you will not be able to avoid it, and you’ll find yourself getting far more angry than you should. If that happens, you may need to exit and “blow off steam” in some safe place (probably devoid of other people). Don’t do anything rash at this time. As with Gemini, Monday and Tuesday are “power days” for you. Just remember to avoid starting something now that completes between the period delineated by your birthday and a month before your birthday. But, Monday and Tuesday ARE “power days” for you.


You look a LOT like Taurus. (Read Taurus). Friday night is particularly good for you. The Scorpio Moon will favor you, or lead you to appropriately favor or support someone, and the Gemini Sun will stir you to action. This is a good time to help others, if you are so inclined. If you are a paramedic, then you’ll be busy tonight. As described above, Saturday is a time of reflection for you, but useful things can be done, too. As with others, this is a good time for a movie, but not a good time for major purchases. Take WRITTEN notes on any ideas that come to you Friday/Saturday. You’ll need them Monday & Tuesday. Like everyone else, avoid the fight Sunday morning. You’ll be tempted to take the side of the “Leo figure” (maybe an acutal Leo, but for sure the Father, Head of Family) as they are a sort of natural ally to them. The argument of the Scorpio (maybe the daughter or mother, particularly if they are normally a quiet person) will be appealing to you, and you may not be able to avoid contributing to their side of the argument. You’ll have to pick one side, but be careful about alienating the “Leo figure.” The Chironic person (friend of the family, physician) will confuse you, unless you yourself are that Chironic person (and you are a very good candidate for that job. Do you want it?) Monday & Tuesday will tend to stir you to action but be frustrating. Keep in mind what happened Friday & Saturday. Your written notes from those days will guide you.


You’d like to have everybody get along, but you may not be able to avoid the temptation to take advantage of the situations (and dramas) that will come to pass in this period. Be careful Friday morning. You can make BRILLIANT presentations, but you should be careful regarding any changes to the script. DO NOT DEVIATE FROM THE PLAN, whatever it is. Otherwise, you’ll do GREAT Friday morning. A good time for the artists & writers among you. The rest of the time, you are “everyman.” This is one weekend where you can play just about any role you want to; choose wisely. Avoid the Sunday morning fight if possible (read the other predictions). If you *DO* get involved, your strongest choice will be to support, or BE, the “Leo figure” (read Virgo, above). Unlike Virgo, you can do quite a bit of damage to the Scorpio, if that is your intent. You can also do a lot of damage if it is NOT your intent, so be careful. Monday and Tuesday: read Gemini and Leo. This is a power time for you, too. Lay low Wednesday and Thursday.


If you are like many scorpios, you’ve read the other signs to see what they are up to. You are educated now. You know that Friday night will provide you with POWERFUL experiences. They’ll PROBABLY be “positive,” but they DEFINITELY will be powerful. You probably CANNOT avoid the fight Sunday morning, but that is okay for most of you because most of you tend to fight anyway. Just realize that the odds are not with you in this battle, unless it is about you “falling in love” or going on a date Friday night. If so, stand your ground. You might lose this battle and yet win the war. You MUST know if what you want is really worth it. That means you need to have DEEPLY thought about it, and maybe written about it, on Saturday. If you anticipate the battle, you may fare much better. You might even “win” if the others are unprepared. Monday is hard, but it might favor you. Monday and Tuesday aren’t easy days for you, but they COULD bring you financial gain. They can bring loss, too, so avoid spending & credit cards. Avoid any significant action the rest of the week, though you’ll be tempted to action. One exception, you might get a rather good price on something Thursday or Friday Definitely do not buy it if it involves (a) communications (cell phone, radio, television, walkie-talkie) or (b) transportation (automobile, tractor-trailer, boat, or airplane). Definitley NOT a day to buy a yacht or corporate jet. And, remember, Friday is mostly void. (Usually only good for meditation and “centering” yourself.)


You win. This is your time. (See, also: Gemini) If you are in conflict with a Gemini, though, I’m not sure who wins. So, if posiible, make that Gemini your ally, not your opponent. For Friday morning: Read Libra. It is EXACTLY the same for you. You could sell the proverbial rerigerator to the proverbial Eskimo. (If you don’t know that saying, then Google it. Worth your time.) Unlike Libra, and everyone else for that matter, YOU “might” (remember MIGHT) could improvise Friday morning. Others would be wise to NOT permit you to do this. But, if they aren’t paying attention, you can get away with it. (I hope you are NOT scamming someone.) Friday is a hot “Date Night,” but if that someone is a NEW someone, you might fall for someone who is not “very good for you.” Or, they’ll be an artist or poety or inspire your poetry. (Not just the “poetry in your soul,” but literal poetry or videography (YouTube?) or photography or writing or painting or….) Saturday is like everybody else: introspection and journaling and deciding what you want. Seeing a movie with a friend is good Satruday, too. Sunday: Can you guess? Yep, like everyone else: avoid the fight. Perhaps more than everyone else, you’ll find the fight very disappointing. If you are watching the drama from the sidelines, you’ll just tend to “shake your head.” You’ll think “Why do they keep playing that drama?” You won’t be able to do anything about it. Monday might involve some cleanup, literal or figurative or both, from the weekend. For both Monday and Tuesday: read Gemini. This is YOUR time of the year, too. You’ll get other windows, particularly near your birthday, but for now this is it. Also like everyone else: avoid overeating and overspending. Lay low on Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday if possible.


Most of you will want to watch the drama rather than participate. You are bit like Libra and Taurus, but you are unique (unlike Gemini & Sag, who are JUST LIKE EACH OTHER at this time). Watch out for someone trying to “hornswaggle you” (as we say here in Texas) on Friday morning. I suspect this person might be a Libra or Sagittarius. If you are a Farmer’s Daughter, *DO* avoid the “Traveling Salesmen” of this period. Friday night will be a fun date, to be sure, but make no committments or any “risky activities” (sex, especially). *IF* you are the “teenaged daughter” in the Sunday morning drama, then this could be a very hard weekend for you. *DO* journal on Saturday and *DO NOT* buy ANYthing Saturday unless it is artistic in nature (and, maybe not even then). Go to a movie with your friends. Get perspective. Sunday: avoid the fight. *IF* you are the mother or daugher (or caregiver), you may see a side of you emerge that no one, including yourself, has seen before. You’ll look a *LOT* like Scorpio in this case (read Scorpio). *IF* you are the Father or Head of Family, you might drop into the “Leo Figure” role, but you’ll find it uncomfortable. You’ll probably secretly wish you could be the rebellious teenager instead of the dispenser of discipline. BUT, *NO ONE* (not even a Scorpio) can dispense discipline like a Capricorn, (Well, maybe a Virgo, sometimes.) Monday and Tuesday will provide career or business boosts to you, although they’ll feel a bit uncomfortable. You’ll be HIGHLY TEMPTED to wait till Wednesday, which feels and looks more comfortable. But, *IF* you are going to make something GROW, make it happen either Monday or (better yet) Tuesday. If you must make a significant purchase, though, defer it until the last weekend of the month. Some of you will be in a bit of a bind, because the purchase and the business decision will be linked. Just know that you’ll get a better by waiting til the end of the month.


Read Gemini, Libra, and Sag. Read Leo, too. You can be persuasive Friday morning, but probably not to a Capricorn. Not the best time for a “Board Meeting” for you UNLESS you are presenting WITHOUT having the Board Members “take a vote.” This prediction also applies to the “Tech Sector” of Wall Sreet. Information, research, and presentations, but no buy/sell action. Financial markets in London could be a “little weird” at this time. Certainly some of you will find love Friday evening, as with others. Some of you, though, will spend time with friends and have a few annoyances. Given a choice, this is a much better “Date Night” than “Out with the Friends” night. Some of you may feel the Retrograde of Pluto into Sadge more than others. Again, Tech Sector corporations will look HARD at the past twenty years and decide who they want to be for the next twenty. A big shift to Apple is happening (the artistic side of Friday and Saturday), and don’t be surprised if you see an announcement from Apple Friday, Saturday or Monday. In the alternative, some major corporation(s) may announce intiatives to put Macintoshes on the desktops of their employees. If you aren’t a big corporation, refrain from shopping Saturday and list your hopes and dreams on paper. If you’ve read the other predictions, you know a big fight is coming Sunday morning. You’ll tend to be conveniently on the sidelines, and (unless you are a healthcare professional and this is NOT involving your friends or family), that is where you should probably stay. Some of you will not be able to resist. A few may be wounded (even literally!) as “collateral damage.” This applies to police officers answering domestic disputes at this time. (Be careful if you are a Police Officer.) If you CANNOT resist the fight, remember your job there is to HELP and TEACH. Don’t write any prescriptions unless you have the legal authority to do so. Monday and Tuesday are good to you; this is a Window for you similar to Gemini and Sadge (but stronger for them). A smart strategy would be to let a Gemini or Sadge “run point” and you be the SUPPORT SYSTEM. You’ll be stronger in this role, and you’ll be less likely to “take damage” (as the teenage gamers say) later. ESPECIALLY YOU: Lay low Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. More than other signs, you can expect power outages. Clean house. Take pictures. Avoid commitment, but you might get a spectacular price on something. Do you really need it? (NOT if it is “on credit.”)


Sadge and Gemini have you at a disadvantage, so avoid “taking them on” directly, if at all. Of course, if you have a fair amount of Sadge or Gemini in your chart, you might be able to charge ahead. Friday morning isn’t so great for you. You might even THINK that you are scamming someone, but they’ll be getting you. If you are a con-artist, expect a “sting” from the Police. Pisces is, among other things, about illusions. Today, you’ll be on the wrong end of the stick as far as these go, so just give it up. Pisces is also good at hiding, so hide. That’ll be your strong point at this time. Friday night is MUCH better for you, In fact, so it the rest of the weekend. Like Libra, you become “Everyman” and can play ANY role you want. So, I offer the same advice: CHOOSE WISELY. I’d say avoid the fight, but if you cannot then the Scorpio role is best for you. Based on astrology, I’d say that anyone concerned with terrorists should check the sewers at this time. The Pisces in your security group will be especially gifted at finding the problem this morning. Like Capricorn, if you are drawn into the fight, then you’ll find a Tiger within yourself that you did not know was there. If you are the teenaged daughter, or mother, then Dad may be in trouble.You could win, but probably by your typical indirect strategies of undermining his/their authority. If domestic abouse is present, the abuser will likely be sent to jail if you are present. (Don’t be the abuser, of course.) The Full Moon Monday and Tuesday is a lot like Virgo for you. You may be stirred to action Monday, and surprise those who would take away your freedom from you. BUT, if you are in the hospital, don’t leave. More than anyone else, you’ll both be tempted AND have the ability to do so. Do NOT do that. If you do, you’ll lose your REAL freedom, which is coming to you now through the healing. Better buys are to be had on Thursday and Friday. Next predictions will be (probably) posted on or about Wednesday June 18th or Thursday June 19th.

Intense Romance Week of June 9 through Friday, June 13, 2008

As I write this, Monday is gone. Most of you had a pleasant Monday. Bad days can happen to anyone, individual charts vary, and individual intent varies. I disagree with the astrological notion that any given decision is set in stone. COLLECTIVE decisions, however, are difficult to change. (I believe that it has been done before.)

Alas, much of this week will involve “collective decisions” between a minimum of two people(s).

I’ll summarize the week before I give its details. This will be a week of intense negotiations, possibly conflict, followed by a culmination likely Friday. On a personal level, especially for younger people, this will be personal power struggles, probably at work, followed by some intense romantic or artistic adventure beginning Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. If finances pre-empt romances for you, then the struggles earlier in the week will be intense but give no clear answers (though they may APPEAR to do so). Later in the week, an agreement may be made, but it may need to be changed or fall apart entirely by September 9, 2008.

Political decisions made this week will APPEAR to be good resolutions, but suspect to “falling apart” by “about” September 9th. (If they survive that date, November 26th/27th will be even more “challenging” as the issues are revisited with much greater scrutiny.)

Tuesday looks interesting but not necessarily earth-shaking. Moon trines Jupiter about Noon, Eastern, and that puts them in agreement. Venus trines Chiron later that evening. But, Moon and Jupiter are in earth, and Venus and Chiron are in air. That is, the two GROUPS of planets have “misunderstandings” at best. Who wins?

Earth seems to invariably believe it is right. Air hardly seems to care, preferring the exploration of a dialog rather than a final decision. But, the winners (if there are any) here will be AIR. Why? Because Venus has a longer term orbit than the Moon, and Chiron has a longer term orbit than Jupiter. Earth may seem right at first, maybe evening winning this PARTICULAR day. But, long term events will prove Air to be correct.

What does this mean? If you are a Gemini or Aquarius, or possibly Libra, you might encounter some “challenges” today, but know that you’re probably “right” in your decisions today. Capricorn and Virgo seem to rule this day, perhaps with Taurus, but (if they follow their tendency to be TOO stubborn) they’ll likely be shown to be long term. If you are Earth (Cap, Virg, or Taurus), try to show some flexibility today. If you are Air, don’t give up entirely if things don’t go the way you hope today.

I might add: this could be a day of profound disconnect, or conflict, between the financial sector (earth / water) and either the media (air) or “leadership” (fire) or both.

The rest of us tend to be spectators, but you can bet that the water signs (Cancer, Scorp, & Pisces) will be pulled into the Earth side of the battle in most cases; Fire (Aries, Leo, & Sag) will tend to take the Air side. Realize, also, that this may be an “indirect” battle rather than a face to face confrontation. A void Tuesday evening makes certain that “long term settlements” will either come to nothing or realize an unanticipated result.

Wednesday: This is a day of possible early morning conflicts as the Moon moves into Libra, abandoning any support it made of Virgo. In the financial sector, accounting abandons corporate management in favor of “working out a deal.” In the romance sector, old maids & bachelors need to re-examine the demands they make of human beings fitting their “ideal partner.”

Essentially, a Grand Air trine exists, with Moon in Libra, Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Gemini, and Chiron & Neptune in Aquarius. Earth sign positions become very untenable this day, and water sign positions that overcommitted in their efforts to back Earth will be in trouble, too. Sun inconjuncts Jupiter late in the day leading to false hopes and some very bad business decisions, particularly regarding (over)spending.

Not a good day to buy, but a damned good day to solicit the opinions of others.

Sun-Jupiter-Mars LOOSELY form a yod this day. That means that Earth signs, particularly Cap, will need to decide between acting as a “manager” (Sun) and being a “soldier” in the trenches (Mars). The Gemini Sun also “looks” to Mars in Leo for advice. A decision MUST be made; inaction will be fatal. Just try not to SPEND, if possible.

Thursday: looks a little better but the tendency to overspend is still present. You might want to think about Thursday to help you decide about Wednesday. Thursday brings something unexpected and difficult to plan for. For some, they’ll meet that “right person,” or even BECOME that “right person,” and go on a date Friday evening. The date might possibly be a casual outing with a friend….

You saw something similar happen about six months ago. Unharnessed, or “processed” foolishly, this aspect (Sun Square Uranus) can lead to terrible accidents or explosions. Properly harnessed, this is a GREAT day to use digital media to make music, photography, video, or other forms of communicative art. So, did you have an accident six months ago? Or did you start some great creative work? (If the latter, this is a good day to “wrap it up.”)

Friday: Most of the workday is void with Venus Trine Neptune inside the void. Venus Trine Neptune is a GREAT day to continue to work on that artistic masterpiece. Some people will fall in love, perhaps the most intense romance of their lives. There is no guarantee that the romance will last (it could), but count on being “more in love” than ever before. Some people will see Friday as a relatively pleasant and relaxing day.

Others will be called by the Retrograde motion of Pluto back into Sag. This begins a time, for many, of hard looks at the past fifteen to twenty years. If you are twenty, or younger, look at your life and know that “things” are about to change in a BIG way. If you are forty, or older, know that this is the time to look hard at what you did in the 1990’s, and the last eight years, and decide what it has meant, and where you would like to spend your remaining energies. What do you wish to accomplish?

If you are between twenty and forty, look back to a turning point in your life that happened in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s. You are about to reach another turning point, one that might revisit some aspect of your childhood control issues.

Friday will be VERY “fun” for some, VERY “intense” for others, and a bit of both for many of us. Events started this week, particularly on Thu / Fri / Sat, will reach another important turning point “about” September 9, 2008.

6/6 void followed by an “August” Moon Weekend

June 5, 2008 at 11:38 pm | Posted in Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on 6/6 void followed by an “August” Moon Weekend
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Some of you wonder what I mean by this title. I mean that the workday of Friday, June 6th 2008 will be spent in a void for most people in North America. Probably applies to South America, too, but I haven’t double checked the calculations.

I’ve noticed that, in my blog stats, that some of my readers “parlez vous francais.” Welcome! I’ll start working on adjusting my English so that it will translate better. Time zones are trickier, but I can tell readers in France and England that the void described above will happen in the evening for you. And, the Leo Moon described below will be a “late night” event. Saturday’s charming Venus-Mercury rendezvous will be Saturday evening. Please remember to adjust for time zones.

Cancerian voids are known for several things. One ancient horary astrologer, probably William Lilly, stated that “the moon performeth, somewhat.” “Things” can be done in the Cancerian void, but they better deal with water, liquids, oceans, mothers, home, oceans, or even the Moon herself. Mostly a good time, a very good time, to be still and center. This is a great day for Moms. Some spills and upsets are bound to occur, but that is part of motherhood. A few family photos taken today might be some of the more memorable ones made.

If you are in Paris or London, maybe this is a good time to visit the “English Channel.”

Cancerian voids have a danger, too. Profound resentments, sometimes lifelong anger, can arise from minor incidents and minor misunderstandings. Please do be on your best behavior. And, if someone is a jerk, ask yourself if it is “really worth it” before you retailiate. A “cooling off period” is a very good idea today. Don’t do something you’ll regret.

In the “I Ching,” water is considered the element of danger. So, if you do play in the water, remember to be safe!

So, have fun, do things Cancerian (safely), and realize that the evening brings a Leo Moon. My understanding is that a Leo Moon is sometimes called an August Moon. (If I am wrong, please someone give me the “correct” definition of this term.) Friday is graced with such a Leo moon.

The early Leo occurs Friday during the afternoon or evening “rush hour” for many people. With Mercury retrograde, and the moon in early Leo, please do be VERY careful in your commute home.

Also, don’t render any opinions based on incomplete facts. People can behave rashly, and this is NOT the time to sign a contract or lease. Consider deferring major purchases until Saturday afternoon. You probably won’t get a lower price, but you might get better colors or features. (Mercury and Venus conjoin, bringing beauty and thought in alignment.)

Later Friday evening, just have fun. This is a good evening to play, and it may be a very romantic night for some people. Take party pics! If you are looking to make a romantic connection, this weekend could be perfect for meeting that new “someone.”

This is 6/6, and while not as “interesting” as 6/6/6 (June 6th of 2006), it is nevertheless an interesting pair of numbers.

I might add, if you must make a purchase during this Mercury Retrograde period, consider making it Saturday afternoon. Some outstanding deals, in terms of quality, may appear this weekend. The merchant has an edge here, so don’t expect bargains. Do realize that some kind of followup with this purchase may be necessary after Mercury goes direct. Make certain batteries are included.

Sunday isn’t quite as benevolent as Saturday afternoon, but isn’t particularly malevolent, either. Mercury and Mars communicate, and that CAN lead to harsh words. But, in this case, with just a small bit of wisdom the energy of this pairing can lead to some kind of essential action. Some people may find this is an especially good day for exercise of some kind.

Also on Sunday, something overdue may be launched or revisited. Right action is very possible here if clear thinking is applied. This might be a good time to work out the details for Father’s Day, next weekend. The moon is void during this period, so try to PLAN the action rather than launching. After sunset on Sunday may be the best time to launch your plan, especially if it involves organizing or cleaning. (Maybe time to get the house ready for holiday plans?)
Stumble It!
