What Welcome Relief. The 5th Heat Wave broke after Thursday. Friday morn, after 2 months, people said returning to the Old Normal felt “chilly”. Thursday and especially Friday were disturbed by magnetic storms (regional, not global) so strong, that the “electrical fire” kept many awake. Then, Saturday, “Ah…”
Not everyone was so lucky. 8 Waves of Monsoons flooded Pakistan. 6 “1000 year floods” swept the US in 2 months; Dallas got no rain for 6 months, then got it all back in a day. This year, Global Warming got very real and kept hitting hard in many areas from North Africa to China. On the New Moon Spark (square Mars), Libya is in flames again. Haiti is a collapsing mess. China is close to Shut Down from the drought, and the Yangtze is almost dry. When the Mother of Snow has no snow, the 4 Great Rivers of Asia will go dry.
But, it was Welcome Relief to see someone trying. Sleepy Joe suddenly wasn’t sleepy. His spending bill will finally do something about runaway GHG emissions. He was finally in Attack Mode against the MAGA “semi-fascism”. He attacked Syria. He paid down his Student Debt. And, CA put a moratorium on Gas Cars by 2035. Ford has already laid off 3K white-collars for the Transition.
What Welcome Relief to watch the Big Baby Soap Opera have its Meltdown. 2 weeks after “the Break In” (on Merc. Opp. Nep.), his inept legal crew wants another stall (filing in the wrong district, can’t say why, legal statute wrong, 2 weeks after the FBI started looking at them, etc.), offering a “damning letter” to justify BBs theft of Top Secret docs, claiming “co-operation” by offering some, but not nearly all the dozens of boxes (15 on Jan., 32 more boxes in The Raid), through months of stonewalling (Saturn). If anything, the FBI is grossly under-reacted and has to do a Risk Assessment of all the Sensitive Info.
How could anyone in their Right Mind so casually leave Top Secret info lying around unsecured, or keep showing it off to “the unclassified”? Criminal Intent requires he knew; his lawyers warned for months; he went through the boxes himself. There was a “standing order” to declassify docs but nothing was done, and no procedures were followed; 18 members of his top staff said no, not possible.
Said years ago, forecast months ago, BB would be “in trouble” in March this year. Neptune is not big enough nor strong enough to easily take someone down unless they make many mistakes (his have recently increased). But, Saturn is. In Vedic Astrology, the 6th, the 8th, and the 12th Houses are all troublesome, weak areas in a Horoscope. Saturn, in his 6th, squared his Midheaven in March. It turned retrograde in June and squared it again just before The Search. The FBI had had enough of not getting back potential threats to National Security.
“The 3rd Time is the Charm” is an ancient Astrological adage. It is not enough to have a single Transit, even if a Giant Planet. But, when a Planet does, then stops, reverses, does it again, stops,8 and does it again, you get to thinking the Heavens had Intent on doing so in Your Horoscope, especially below his Horizon Line. Oh, Criminal Intent for Espionage, Obstruction of Justice, and “wilful” damage to Public Docs seems suddenly assured. For BB, Saturn squares his Midheaven for the 3rd Time in late Dec. He is looking at decades. HNY.
“What about the New Moon square Mars threat?” Ah, Sweet Relief. So inept, he still Can’t Pull the Trigger, can’t organize (Uranus the Organiser standing still) his Fake Militia. The New Moon is an in-drawing time, bringing affairs “closer to Home”. This tends to turn many affairs Personal (domestic upsets, road rages, etc.). Note, that the MAGA team got stone-cold quiet on Friday. The proposed release of Anger and Hate is going internal and starting to eat at them (Jup-Nep: ‘let them make mistakes). Moscow Mitch recently worried they wouldn’t take back the Senate. Now, they’re worried they also won’t be in the House. There goes The Party! As said, Putin has maybe 2 years to play Nuclear Extortion. Volodymyr wants Crimea back.
Still, be careful Out There. There is more Stock Market pain to tame Inflation. “The US Civil War” is going bust, but Hockey Canada is cleaning up Sex Scandals, CTV is wrestling with Greyism and Sexism, and we have a Hydrogen Deal with Germany. Welcome Relief.
This week: If Magical Thinking could fly, Monday is a good day, send a postcard. Tuesday gets stuck in the mud. Early Thursday may wake up and get something done, so instead of an endless monologue-narrative on Friday, where’s the postcard? Saturday looks good for a Party of One. And, how does anyone get into the Jump and Jive late Sunday unless you invited lots more?
Nota Bene: Electromagnetic brain stimulation improves short-term and long-term memory for about a month. As we use more and more electricity, the magnetic field lines of Mother Earth get pushed back, rendering the electromagnetic energies that abound and surround all of us weaker. In other words, Astrological influences have become less literal, more subtle, and psychological than blatant styles of Fortune Telling. Nonetheless, getting up and outside, bathing in the Heavenly Vibes, is still a tonic.
All Planetary Aspect energies build up several hours before (for the swift) to a few days before (for the slow), as they approach. The Moon triggers within 2 hours.
Like Astrology, CYC is complicated, and cannot be explained in a page or two. Exceptions, depending on the context, can apply. Contact me for Your Natal Horoscope and a reading.
Monday, 29 August. (Moon fidgety till fine Libra. The Sun in Virgo has soft aspects Mars / Jupiter, hard aspects Uranus / Neptune. 6 Mutable, 21 Cardinal)
Why would you jump on the bus if the driver is madly careening all over the road? You can spend lots of effort chasing a mirage. Let it be their effort for your entertainment.
(Venus in Leo has hard aspects, Jupiter, in Aries. 22 Fixed, 7 Cardinal)
This can be a comforting “Ah”, no matter where it hits you Horoscope. A really good performance deserves extra appreciation. But, it is way too expensive to own the show.
Tuesday, 30 August. (Moon steady in Libra. The Sun in Virgo has hard aspects Saturn / Neptune. 7 Mutable, 22 Cardinal)
This is going to punish Long Term more than it helps. Can you back out and say, No Thanks? Or, is that what you are already into? Get the best advice you can to steer through a murky time. This is now a condition, not just an event.
Late Wednesday, 31 August. (Moon rolling along in Scorpio. Mars in Gemini (aspecting Uranus / Neptune, sextile Jupiter, aspecting Venus / Uranus, in Aries. 6 degrees and 21 degrees of All Signs)
So easy and promising, if you would only commit. It’s about that promise, see. If this is an exercise, go for broke. If for real, it’s the coach that can’t, or won’t, follow through. They want Your Glory, no matter what it costs you. One shot, not more, until you can see what’s next.
(Mercury in Libra hard aspects Saturn in Aquarius. 5 Cardinal, 20 Fixed)
Technically, this comes first, but the Moon triggers 2nd. Yeah, the easy promise comes before the consequence can get considered. Oops, this needs careful consideration, and only when ya got the facts, can see what’s up. Ulterior Motives lurk.
Friday, 2 September. (Moon sliding into a situation in Scorpio. Mercury in Libra opposed Jupiter in Aries. 6 Cardinal, 21 Fixed)
Who gets, and who gets got? You put it on the line, but their Put Up, or Put Out, is locked up. Can you Put Out if they don’t? Not for long. Ditch the Lure, strike a Real Deal or walk. Keep negotiating at least through Sunday.
Saturday, 3 September. (Moon is eager to bust things open in Sagittarius. The Sun in Virgo hard aspects Venus / Neptune. 11 Mutable, 26 Cardinal)
Beautiful, alluring, and not quite right. The dance may be exotic, and thrilling, but how could you take this home? “Did you know the dancer has a boyfriend in the mob?” Keep it all at Arm’s Length until you see what comes next. (All this, above and below, seems like an Arms Negotiation.)
Sunday, 4 September. (Moon comes up short but left with a smile in Sagittarius. The Sun in Virgo has hard aspects Jupiter / Uranus. 12 Mutable, 27 Cardinal)
“Come on, we gotta get everyone in the pic!” Yeah, even the boyfriend. The More, the, well, if not Merrier, the More who can be pleased. If you don’t gather and get concessions, the more this can go sideways. No matter how On Edge, there can be a Sweet Deal here when all bases get covered. No Solo Grandstanding, or else.
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 the 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 an 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 the 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 Midheaven, 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 birthplace. 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 front of you.
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)
Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
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.
