May 10, 2017 (Julian 130) Full Moon in Scorpio + Mercury / Uranus conjunct in Aries

May 10, 2017 (Julian 130) Full Moon in Scorpio + Mercury / Uranus conjunct in Aries

Many others have noted that this is an “interesting” Full Moon.  Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus is always a time of addressing compelling issues each year, but some years more than others.  This FM is at twenty degrees, so it is not precisely on the point where the Cross Quarter Days are located (at 15 degrees).

However, Mercury, direct after a recent retrograde period, touches the twenty degree point at this time where is become conjunct with Uranus in Aries.  This conjunction occurs on the same day as the FM, but about sixteen hours earlier.  Worthy of note is the fact that this is the third time Mercury has joined Uranus at (or “near”) this point, a bit of an exclamation point.  Uranus is also considered to be the “higher octave” of Mercury.  This combination of Mercury / Uranus is precisely semi-sextile the Sun in Taurus and quincunx the Moon in Scorpio.

Outers are “interesting” also.  Jupiter quintiles Vesta, and some of us have some bright ideas regarding our rituals and traditions.  Mars binquintiles Pluto, adding a dash of brilliance or perhaps genius involving power struggles and things Scorpionic: investigations, chemistry, toxicology or poisons, police, intelligence agencies (including the FBI, in the news spotlight again we note), and sometimes criminals.  Actually, ALL “martians” benefit at this time, meaning people who are soldiers, whether literal or metaphorical, become stronger and smarter at this time.

Jupiter opposes Pallas (the maiden warrior goddess), and this further amplifies everything mentioned in the previous paragraph.  Criminologists may have important breakthroughs at this time.  Ditto for cryptography experts.

Pallas perfects a sesquiquadrate to the North Node, and a sense of urgency simply will not let any aforementioned “martians” rest.  They feel they MUST act at this time.  Do not be surprised if an even more explosive scandal bursts onto the politicial scene at this time.

Privately, for “the rest of us,” this is one hell of a day to “get things done.”  Seize the moment and seize the day.  But, keep in mind that this is not a day to be frivolous or “stupid.”  That just will not be tolerated.  Keeping that in mind, chances are good that you can have breakthroughs that are nothing short of amazing at this time.  All signs benefit: earth and water benefit from the FM and fire and air benefit from Mercury conjunct Uranus.

May 6, 2017 (Julian 126) Mars SemiSquare Uranus + (Day Off)

 May 6, 2017 (Julian 126) Mars SemiSquare Uranus + (Day Off)

We are taking a day off from writing a more detailed regular forecast.  We do note these two things: (1) Moon in Virgo forms a T-Square with Saturn in Sadge & Chiron in Pisces in the morning leading either to conflicts or a sense of urgency, probably involving healthcare and/or educational matters.  (2) Mars SemiSquare Uranus gives us another risky day with possible accidents / explosions a real risk (or maybe still dangerous people).

Moon is v/c in Virgo from 7:40 AM CDT until 1:20 PM CDT when it moves into Libra (and the “too early to tell” realm for much of the rest of the day.  The election in France is tomorrow, and that will be very important.

April 28, 2017 (Julian 118) Venus enters Aries; Mercury (R) joins Uranus (Aries)

April 28, 2017 (Julian 118) Venus enters Aries; Mercury (R) joins Uranus (Aries)

The headline for today is that (1) Venus enters Aries (covering old ground from prior to the recent Venus Retrograde); and (2) Mercury (R) joins Uranus (something that will happen again with Mercury Direct on May 9th during the “shadow period” that lasts until May 20th.  This is a superb time for writers (and similar creatives) to develop ideas along with likely an important day for journalists and others who depend on writing and communication (or transportation) for their art, craft, or livelihood.

Some of you will be following up from yesterday’s window of opportunity for creatives.  Even if you cannot finish the project now, you can return to it May 9th.

Moon is in Gemini (Mercury ruled) all day.  Moon (Gemini) semi-squares Mercury / Uranus (Aries) about 2 PM CDT, and some of you will feel a sense of urgency to make progress or completed some project.  Follow your intuitions on this, but we especially recommend that you make as much progress today as you possibly can.  This is an important day to “push” to get things done.  The persistence will pay off, even if you see certain setbacks.

Outers are EXTREMELY busy today but enigmatic and difficult to interpret.  We know something is important about this particular day, but we simply are unable to interpret it for you.  That means it is up to you to determine why today is so important.  With Neptune (Pisces) sesquiquadrate Vesta (Cancer), we think this likely involves photographs and videos and the formation of memories of family members.  As Joni Mitchell once sang, “you never know what you’ve got until it is gone.”  Take pictures.  Make videos.  Cherish those close to you.
