            Blowhard stalls, turns into Slow Brutal Grind. Apt for most anywhere you look these days. Hurricane Florence got into full flow after breezy Mercury opposed Neptune, Lord of the Great Wet. Then The Messenger triggered the buildup of the Hit Man Aspect, an angry Mars square crazed Uranus next Tuesday. Then, just to piss off, or on, everyone, it wouldn’t budge.

So did Big Baby. So did his last hope, his SC nominee. So did his ON PM wannabe, taking spiteful revenge on TOs city council. About the only scandal or perilous force that didn’t slow down was Hurricane Mangkhut or Global Warming. Oh, and the reformist Pope Pancho, kicking out pedophile priests to cardinals. And, CBS turfing its CEO as #MeToo keeps building.

Obviously, some things, or people, don’t have the luxury of putting up an obnoxious defense. For 2 days, Big Baby slammed Puerto Rico with, “3000 people did not die”, when everyone’s focus was on this year’s crisis. The Liar in Chief topped 5000 dubious statements since getting into office, 3000 coming just this year, 125 in 1 day last month. Aw, Big Baby gets increasingly nervouswhen that nasty Witch Hunter closes in.

On Friday, stonewall Manafort went soggy, flipped for Mueller, is going to cooperate, tell all, without lawyers present! After BBs CFO of all things trump was snared, Mueller has the money trail. We’re gonna see his taxes! Now the Witch Hunter has the inside on connecting all straight to the Kremlin. We’re gonna see his kompromat! Make Halloween Great Again!

The last New Moon got very personal indeed. Where squabbles were magnified and exposed, from pouty personal vendettas to destructive trade wars and violence, shameless gaslighting can no longer obscure. Last week was like a tax, a toll or penalty that never quits. Ominously sitting in the background was the joint military exercises of China with Russia.

All goes quiet this week, except for Wednesday’s final petty personal Flash Point. The Moon is apogee, drawing out last ditch quibbles as Mercury aligns with the Sun. We’re waiting for the next Full Moon square Saturn to drop the Hammer, making a Tough Decision that sticks.

The problem remains, though. How dangerous will deeply Wounded Beasts be?


This Week: If you’re gonna go, go out with a bang! After a nothing Monday (not one Planetary Aspect, not even a midpoint), there’s nothing like hair-trigger Mars square unfeeling, unempathetic Uranus to make a mess and not give a damn who it hurts. The Sun square the Galactic Centre insists this ugliness be dragged into the Public Eye. With the Moon apogee, there will be more backlash than lash. “How could you?!” Both sides of most issues will be relieved to get ‘this’ off their chests. Let the facts and finality of it all begin.


Nota Bene: When the Sun burps extra protons, like last Monday, things turn primitive, dragging people (and hurricanes) down. When the Sun also kicks up a fuss and the Solar Wind screams out twice as fast, as it did for the next 5 days, those protons hit twice as hard. No wonder it felt like a tiring no-exercise exercise.

Tuesday, 18 September. (slow Moon isolated in Capricorn, apogee Moon frenzied in Aquarius. The Sun in Virgo squares the Galactic Centre, hard aspects Mars – Uranus / Jupiter. 25-26 Mutable, 10-11 Fixed)

Wow, a lot of Pride is on the line. The Sun is fighting a Daemon (the GC), digging up our own. It will be hard fought but can only bewon with cooperative help. Lashing out at friends and allies (whoever is handy) makes it worse, pushes away the very source of assistance needed.

(Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. 1-2 Fixed, 16-17 Mutable)

Dangerous Flash Point, triggered by the Moon by late tomorrow. This too often acts without thinking, considering consequences or anything other than immediate results or gratification. People easily get hurt. This is no ‘accident’. Be careful out there! Have yourbackup ready.


Thursday, 20 September. (sluggish Moon tending wounds in Aquarius. Mercury aligns with the Sun in Virgo. 28 Mutable, 13 Fixed)

The week before such alignments are fraught with perverse carping, complaints that can’t be fixed. After, “Why, hello, can we get along now? Let’s agree on something.” If this hits one of Your Four Personal Points, something has to be, so is, changing. Finally, others are, so let it.


Friday, 21 September. (Moon easy in Aquarius. The Sun with Mercuryin Virgo hard aspects Venus / Jupiter. 28-29 Mutable, 13-14 Fixed)

It is All About the Timing. Don’t you feel better now, even smug, by standing aside and letting others do the Exploding, and not getting emotionally and/or personally involved until it is safe? Otherwise, Venus is the pocketbook, even a karmic one, and Jupiter pays off bigly.


Sunday, 23 September. (Moon stuck on fantasy in Pisces. Mercury in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn, trine Mars in Aquarius. 2-3 degrees and 17-18 degrees of All Signs)

Sorry, Moon, facts are facts, Hard Reality is tangible, no matter the hopes and wishes. Nothing moves forward without facing it or fessing up first. Like a turnstyle, pay up or no play.


Is your Number up?  Check Your Four Personal Points for every day (see below).  If the numbers match, this day is meant for you!

Each forecast shows: the Moon Sign, the Planetary Aspect, and Numbers of degrees in Signs for the Planetary Aspect.

The Moon Sign is the Sign the Moon is in for that day.  The Moon Sign gives advantage to the Sign it is in, puts extra pressure on the opposite Sign, and tends to cross up or neutralize the Signs at right angles.  For example, with Fixed Signs, if the Moon is in Taurus, Taurus has the advantage, Scorpio gets challenged, and Leo and Aquarius get shifted or crossed up.

The Planetary Aspect is where action is released.  It’s the Excuse.  Unlike daily Horoscopes that suggest each day has the same level of influence, this is the core of changes in the daily energies.

The Sign Numbers are the degrees in the Signs of the Zodiac being emphasized.  If the degree for any day is close to any degree of Your Four Personal Points (see below), within a degree or so, THIS IS YOUR DAY.  Pay extra ATTENTION.

You may have several days in the week activated for you, or you may have none.  As a degree hits one of Your Four Personal Points, the forecast tells about the important things in your life.  The daily forecasts tell you when.  The overall story comes through over time.  Sooner or later, the degrees of the Forecast catch up to all Your Points.

Your Four Personal Points are, in order of importance:

The Ascendant, the Mid-heaven, the Moon, and the Sun.  These are the most important Points of your Horoscope, calculated from your birth date, your birth-place, and the time of day you drew your first breath.

The first two Personal Points, the Ascendant and Mid-heaven, are the points that fix the Earth in space for your birth time at your specific birth place.  We live on the Earth, not the Sun or the Moon.

The Ascendant, also called Your Rising Sign, is more important than your Sun Sign.
Simply, and generally only, forecasts that affect your:
Ascendant      relate to matters in your environment.            Use it to see what’s in your “face”.
Mid-heaven    relate to matters in your personal life.            Use it to see what’s in your mind.
Moon              relate to matters in your emotional life.          Use it to see what’s in your heart.
Sun                 relate to matters in your physical life.             Use it to see what’s in your core.

The Signs of the Zodiac are:
Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Fix: Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
Mut: Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)

Heaven, Help Us!  The forecast is the mood of the moment.

When it rains, we all get wet, no matter what “Sign” we are.
