Apparently just saying what’s going on is illegal, in Egypt, 3 journalists jailed for mentioning the Muslim Brotherhood. Conspiracy to say it with sneaky info is illegal in the UK, the girlfriend goes free. After Mercury’s double aspect to Saturn, Saturn drew lines in the sand, judged impressions, minds were made up if not expressed.
Prepare to have many affairs stirred by the Double Double not get resolved till 13 July. Mercury brainstorms through Canada Day, we get faced with a Change or Else Moment a week later, and then Mercury has a bridge to cross or burn by the Up Tight Full Moon.
The day after Mercury’s alignment, decisions tumbled out of those made up minds, air waves chattered. The first outgoing wave hit Saturn, the Punisher, this time by the Sun. Big Authority is taking charge, like in Egypt, and the US ready to smite ISIS. Iraq slides into Partition (Saturn, the Divider). Putin stands down, Ukraine’s borders realigned.
The biggest Authority, Mother Nature, is ticked again. Bees have taken a beating for years, these pollinator-slaves caring for 3/4th of all our food crops. Nicotine is a powerful nerve poison (remember how green you got off your first cig?). Coating all our seeds in neonics (40% of all pesticides), just in case, kills all it touches, 90% going downstream, somewhere, like everywhere. Scientists say Ban It, Globally, Now! Bees say, If we go, you’re going with us.
As Mars opposed Uranus, challenges to authority sprung up. Baby Kim in NK freaked over “rogue” Seth Rogan’s latest comedy, oh, the “undisguised terrorism” of it all. Boehner sues Obama over executive power, who’s the boss. Harper wants medieval banishment again.
Such changes to the Word, like the Constitution, (retrograde Mercury past alignment) are premature, untenable. Boehner and Harper are likely to lose, but as Venus and Mars got ‘frisky’, they teased their voter base. Blacks in Ole Miss were not to be teased, voted against a neo-KKK. Gays in TO were there to tease, set a Pride record.
With Personal Planets aspecting Uranus, Divas threw a Spite Fit, cohesion ready to fracture. But a New Moon can hold on, even in desperate times. And, with it trine Neptune, notice how Neptune wove together Ukraine voting in the EU, Obama sends advisors and Putin sends jets so Iraq can strike back at ISIS, all in about a day. Notice how Canada’s Supreme Court decision on aboriginal title will have sweeping consequences, starting with pipelines.
This Week:Suddenly, Mercury is mum. What can you say when perspectives shift to very broad? Before we get some of Jupiter’s protections next New Moon, this week finds 2 Giant Planet Complexes and the Sun aspecting Giants, all affecting extensive affairs, most will find this a pleasant and friendly week. Some still have homework. Beware Saturday’s growlies.
Nota Bene: There is a White Dwarf in Aquarius (the Constellation), so old and cold, it has condensed into a Planet-sized diamond. The Ancients have been telling us for centuries, late Aquarius to early Pisces is a realm of fortune and treasure. Find yours yet?
Like us, monarch butterflies use UV light. They use it to navigate. Hmm, us, too? We at least use it as a pain killer. Yay, Summer’s here, gather some Sun, let the snoozing begin.

Monday, 30 June. (apogee Moon endlessly slow in Leo. Saturn in Scorpio aspects Jupiter / Neptune. 16-17 Fixed, 1-2 Cardinal)
This would get little obvious notice without the Moon midday. Jup-Nep is like a beehive of a thousand excuses for Saturn’s use to thwart and stall. But, this also starts a serious erosion of obstructions. Someone just ran out of excuses, all previous ones hitting their expiry date. You can no longer make stuff up out of nothing, quibble just because, or sow doubt for doubt’s sake. This weakens many forms of resistance, peaking in November.
Tuesday, 1 July. (slow Moon cordial in late Leo. Mercury stationary, turning direct in late Gemini. 24 Mutable, 9 Fixed)
Button it, you still don’t know what you’re talking about. You may think so, but give it a few days, not all pertinent data is in yet. There is no real need to commit till late Thursday. Besides, “no”, nothing, bupkis is a statement.
Wednesday, 2 July. (Moon dreamy in Virgo. Jupiter in Cancer aspects Uranus / Neptune. 26-27 Cardinal, 11-12 Mutable)
OK, so the Moon might gloat a bit, feeling advantage if she takes the long view. Jupiter’s goodies are packaged in so many layers, most miss them, they take so long to unwrap, and when they are, they’re quite subtle in their gratification. But, if you’ve played all your cards right, and this degree hits your chart, sit back and let a winning hand unfold, no need to rush.
Thursday, 3 July. (Moon adjusting in Virgo. Venus in Gemini aspects Jupiter in Cancer. 12 Mutable, 27 Cardinal)
Somebody got a prize. Don’t know it yet? Or, are you the only kid up, while others stay lost in deep sleep? Midday yesterday put a smile on your face. It’s a wakeup call to pleasantries. Like much this week, give it time. Let me know in a moon-th.
(the Sun in Cancer aspects Saturn / Neptune. 12 Cardinal, 27 Fixed)
This is normally a quite sluggish moment, bogged down in repetition and drudgery. But, like sticking with piano lessons, it’s a transition from make-believe to performance. With backup from Venus, you’re honing talent, or at least gaining satisfaction from the grind. Pace yourself.
Sunday, 6 July. (Moon careless in late Libra. Venus in Gemini aspects Uranus in Aries. 16 degrees and 1 degree of All Signs)
Is it carefree or cleanup from yesterday? The Moon occults (hides) Mars Saturday eve, reining in this playful little ‘monster’. Some kids get carried away, colour outside the lines, in creative exuberance. Welcome this freedom of personal expression, just channel it. Find a focus.
If you want the “horrible-scopes”, go somewhere else. If you want the meaning behind them, stay on.
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 yourHoroscope, 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:
Card: 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.
If you like this forecast, let others know. SEND IT TO THEM.
If you have comments or questions, LET ME KNOW.
