Forecast for October 2016

“Overture, curtains, lights,
This is it, you’ll hit the heights,
And, oh, what heights we’ll hit,
On with the show, this is it.” – Bugs Bunny Show theme song

December brings a head-spinning mix of inevitability and unpredictability. Don’t expect it to go according to either tradition or plan. Keep your mind and schedule open, follow your instincts and you might actually have fun.  Having popcorn on hand might prove useful, too.

Been stuck? Waiting for motivation? Or the right opening? Not any more. Santa (or your holiday benefactor of choice) is delivering cases of Popeye’s spinach that unleashes startling, nigh-on superhuman action.

We’re being catapulted out of the upheaval of the past five years and into directions that upheaval made possible. Everything that has broken, cracked open, shifted and reshaped over the past five years has led to the events of this month.

The next stage of the adventure is here, and the skies are giving us a high-octane send-off. Saturn and Uranus, the lord of structure and the guy who blows structures up, are igniting the first of three booster rockets that define the trajectory of the next year. (Rounds two and three come in May and November.)

The inaugural launch has Jupiter in Libra amping up (trining) Saturn and triple-dog-daring Uranus (via an opposition), effectively throwing flame accelerant into the mix. Uranus is intensifying the launch with a dragging energy that comes from nearing the end of his retrograde. Blast-off happens on Christmas Eve. (Oh, goodie, right?) We’ll be feeling the build-up in the weeks before — and the backdraft well beyond.

Jump on this and ride. This blend of controlled planetary firepower is firming, grounding and stabilizing the dramatic, innovative, going-for-broke developments so many of us are being compelled to pursue. (If you’re not acquainted with the concept of self-actualization; read up on it; we’re in for an epidemic.)

The teamwork is also zapping established ways of thinking and doing — tilting them, electrifying them, blasting them apart. Loose cannon on a rampage is one aspect of this potential, as we’ve been seeing in the collective (okay, the political news). We’re in for a startling, unforeseeable, possibly previously unthinkable development or three, a fitting cap for a year that can be charitably described as weird.

Don’t panic! The disruptions can be fun, freeing and beneficial, too. Amid this volatility, traditions hold little sway. Consider yourself off the hook from anything that does not enhance your life or bring you joy. This is a holiday season to do whatever you darn well please. Make it up as you go along, even.

As tricky as this high-octane blend sounds, the skies are beaming down plenty of reason to get on board.  Links from action hero Mars to the firestarters have us raring to go as the month begins. While we’re ramping up, thoughts and communications keep us fixed on the concrete, practical and long-term, thanks to messenger god Mercury’s entry into Capricorn on the 2nd.

Venus gives relationships breathing room and a 20,000 feet-high perspective stretching far into the future, when she moves into Aquarius on the 7th.  The Sun steps into the dance when he collaborates with the outer planet trio in the second week, which also brings a boost in detachment (and scads of data) from the Gemini Full Moon.

From mid-month on, that mental focus on terra firma has us slowing, turning around, rethinking and flirting with do-overs. The impetus comes from the double whammy of Mercury stationing retrograde and Mars entering anything but straightforward Pisces on December 19right as the calendar is hurtling us into the thick of the holidays and year-end crunch.

With Mars out of forward, march mode, this Mercury retrograde presents more than its usual challenges, adding to the anything-can-happen (or be revealed, she says cryptically) vibe coming off Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Take ordinary retrograde precautions and then some. Approach communication as susceptible to the misleading, confusing and truthy. Make allowances for technology and traffic developing snarls and blips for reasons that are not always apparent. Rely on your inner GPS.

And work the double whammy to your benefit. At the very moment you feel your life escalating into excitement and adventure,  this planetary pair can draw attention to foundational matters and encourage soft, indirect action that flows around or permeates blocks. Do less, so you can do more. Reopen plans, goals, traditions for discussion (or simply back out). Play the backhand that comes so naturally to Mars in Pisces. Direct requests or demands are going to draw resistance and blow back. Try a little tenderness. Lure what you want.

This vibe permeates the solstice, which takes place on December 21, and reverberates throughout the winter season.

As weird, unfamiliar and potentially unsettling as these dynamics sound, the year’s final week holds the promise of sunniness and inner peace. Wherever that first booster rocket shoots us, the initial returns are positive. Happy hearts abound on Christmas Day, which sees Venus cavorting merrily with Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus.

The month and year end with clarity (the Sun conjuncting Mercury) and the concerted action and emotional goal-setting inspired by the Capricorn New Moon, on the 29th.  New horizons are calling that same day, as Uranus drops his drag and stations direct. Before heading out, take a dip in the grace and harmony between the Sun and dreamweaver Neptune. They add gentleness and nostalgia as the clock runs out on a most unusual year.

Forecast for the 2016 Sagittarius New Moon

November 29, 2016
7 Sagittarius 42
4:18 PST / 7:18 EST / 12:18 GMT

Beliefs are just ideas until put into action. This year’s Sagittarius New Moon is an invitation to live them.

Well, more than an invitation, actually. Firm suggestion is more like it. Okay: demand.

This Moon may be generally philosophically inclined, but this year’s model has a dynamic bent that will not be denied.  It’s not the reality-upending variety of dynamic we’ve been experiencing lately, though. This Moon’s dynamic flavor inspires action that expands and stabilizes, with an emphasis on structures and commitments involving hearts and values.

What’s Propelling Us
We are feeling the pull of multiple defining moments in recent history, all of which are placing cosmic hands against our backs and shoving, but good. Think back to the following times, and connect the dots to where you are now.

The last week of December 2013 brought a tectonic shift in patterns and foundations, particularly involving relationships and family traditions, when Mars in Libra formed a T-square with the cosmic change agents, Uranus and Pluto.  That shift is currently being pressured into phenomenal expansion and growth.  A T-square involving the same signs accompanies this Moon, now with bigger-is-better Jupiter in Libra and that sign’s ruler Venus with Pluto at the brunt of the T-square.

That focal point warrants emphasizing: the planets of desire and money, mere mortal level and huge, primal, outside-rational-confines level, are together on the receiving end of escalating pressure to break free and evolve. And that pressure is emptying into Cancer: our concept of home, family, tradition, nurturing and security.

On a collective level, the line-up reflects fierce issues of values, economics, and tribal definitions .(Who’s part? Who’s not?) On your personal level, consider how your current relationship rule book / connections / desires connect to what shifted for you that week in 2013. Something has sprouted from that crack in the plates and is blossoming.

This Moon also carries the force of the reboot we all received from September’s solar eclipse. The Sagittarius Moon’s square to the eclipse point is a cosmic shove forward, arguing for taking those post-eclipse improvements seriously. What did you clean up or close out? What boundaries did you redraw? They are moving into insistent realities asking for you to commit.

Underscoring that:  the North Node is occupying the degree of that eclipse. The future has arrived. It’s time to move away from old wounds, victimization, sabotaging and thinking that is wishful at best, delusional at worst. It’s time to head for tomorrow.

Other late summer/early fall moments play a role as well. This Moon is a moving-on point from determination and focused will (and perhaps some anger) that locked in late August, and then the heart (or the resources to back that determination) getting on board late September. At those times Mars, then Venus merged with Saturn, lord of structure, near the degree where the New Moon is taking place.

Issues of integrity and ethics are live and making it increasingly difficult to stay a course that conflicts with yours. A slogan from early feminism is weirdly and directly applicable: The personal is political. These days, the reverse is, too.

Speaking of politics: Have some strategies, tips & popcorn for the post 11/9 world

So much pushing us; so much incentive; so much pressure. It’s not out of the blue, though. It’s all an organic outgrowth of matters that have been brewing inside you, and brewing between you and a certain person or two. And it enables firming the situation(s) up, so everyone can relax into  and rely on them.

Action Comes Easily
Responding to this call comes naturally, too. The ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, is in an easy channel of energy with Mars, ruler of drive and action. The combo encourages grand action with a view to the future. That could well be progressive, aware of the existence and role of others (social action, for example) and seeking negotiation, cooperation and advocacy. It could be detached, iconoclastic and going about things its own way.

However the Mars/Jupiter teamwork manifests — and however you chose to express it — it has the power to mushroom tiny efforts wildly beyond the intended.

Grab this and run. Expand your vision of what’s possible. Dream big, then bigger, then bigger again.

And then do something. Especially in your dealings and agreements with others.

Major Relationship Developments
This New Moon ushers a phase in relationships with enormous positive potential. This is particularly so for connections that veer from what has been the wounded norm, into mutually supportive, mutually enhancing pairings.

They’re becoming the new model for long-term relationships. Watch for significant gear shifts in that direction growing out of this Moon phase, which is operating as a gateway. (Inspirational image:  the Four of Wands in the Tarot, which depicts a man and woman celebrating publicly at an archway made of wands and garlands.)

Bonds that ramp up or lock in now have long-term durability. That’s not only because love goddess Venus is in Capricorn (and getting the evolutionary whammy discussed above). Another reason is her reinforcement. Juno, the protector of marriage, is right alongside the New Moon. She’s tapping on ring fingers and drawing attention to beliefs about union, commitment and structures that formalize them. Flings will be rare this holiday season. Mistletoe moments with lasting power, on the other hand …

Visibility Advisory
Going with your guidance remains the preferred course of navigation.  We’re still operating under murky visibility. Neptune may have gone direct on the 19th, but his clouds of confusion, delusion and, if we’re lucky, transcendence haven’t dissipated. Saturn, ruler of the authority and the status quo, whipped them up for most of the year, and they’re getting a renewed boost from a harsh aspect to the New Moon.

The square could lend high romance to the relationship developments rolling out in this Moon phase. Less pleasant possibilities lurk in the cloudbanks, though. Let your principles guide you through them. Odds are, you won’t be doing it alone.

Forecast for November 2016

After months of disorientation, confusion and head-scratching, along come moments of “So that’s what this was about!” Then decisive, determined action capitalizing on the realizations.

Think of it as a Thanksgiving parade, all month long — only you’re not watching on the sidewalk or your couch, but marching into the fray, and at the end you’re not returning to your original spot. November calibrates our desires, shuts down the cosmic fog machine (at last!) and births developments with a long-term reach.

This story arc is not exactly apparent from the month’s first few days. Little is readily apparent, actually, that’s how unmoored the post-Halloween days (including election day in the US) are from what ordinarily passes for reality.

Gentle, otherworldly currents are delivering artistic inspiration, encounters with the departed, guidance from on high and sensations of connectedness to all of life. Monsters from the deep are in those waters as well, closer to the surface than normal. Visual and mental cues may mislead; navigate by radar. (Refer to my Scorpio New Moon forecast, which is still in effect.)

By the 5th, a thunderclap rouses hearts and desires; by the 7th, a path opens to a fierce desire, if you focus, banish fears and take the first, bold step to claiming.

Moving forward soon loses the careful, nose-to-grindstone, down-to-business plodding that colored October. Action hero Mars, who rules how we go after what we want, begins a month-plus in the futuristic, free-spirited intellectual mode of Aquarius on the 9th. Methodical progress gives way to innovative, individualistic approaches and flashes of genius. You’ve already set goals; now make up your way as you go along, pulling moves out of the blue now and again. (Tessering, anyone?)

The bottom line remains at the forefront, though, with Venus, ruler of all we value (love, money, creativity, previous baubles), moving from theoretical Sagittarius to eminently practical Capricorn on the 11th, where she’ll remain till December 6. With “Santa Baby” popping up early on internal playlists, watch for a calculating eye and preference for lasting value to overtake relationships and financial dealings.

Mercury picks up the fire baton from Venus the next day, the 12th, keeping gab and getting around energized and lively for the remainder of the month. There’s little chance of lagging once the Sun starts his annual tour of the sign, on the 21st.

The underlying practical streak gets a boost from the Taurus Full Moon on the 14th, which directs attention and emotions to issues of physical satisfaction, security and satiety. It’s a have-it-all event: Long-term security remains the goal, but we hunger for tangible, consumable reward in the here and now, as well.

Venus’ journey dominates the rest of the month. October sounded the cosmic alarm clock and set long-simmering developments into motion. November runs them by our heart and makes tweaks in both directions. As Venus contacts all of the outer planets, our desires, relationships, approach to money and ultimately value systems get softened, buffed, deepened, stretched and blown out.

The calibrating begins with a doorway to tender, kind, heaven-sent experience, as Venus reaches out to Neptune, ruler of higher love, on the 19th. That’s the very day he’s turning direct after a six month retrograde, which began in the middle of the weird, Hanged Man-like suspension of June’s mutable grand cross.

We’ve come down from the Hanged Man’s tree and have been on solid ground since September. Now the fog that blanketed that experience — and so much of the year — is finally burning off and we are getting a much clearer view of exactly where we are — and where we’re heading.

That clarity is up for honing as we roll toward Thanksgiving and cosmic change agents Uranus and Pluto come back into play. That holiday will be anything but the same old, same old. Jupiter is pumping up structural changes in traditions, families and other foundations, when he squares Pluto, agent of unavoidable, fundamental change on the 24th.

The difference in this year’s model is more than what’s on the menu. A change in location, in companions and above all in approach and significance are all in order, and they’re setting the imprint for celebration in years to come. The urge is insistent and irresistible to do what you want, what you really really want, with someone (singular or plural) you really really want to be with. Expect smaller, deliberately chosen gatherings, simplification and greater meaning.

The impact is far greater than a holiday celebration. A template is being installed for moving forward, as the two planets of money and desire, Venus and Pluto, meet on the 25th, with Jupiter egging Venus on in her quest for tangible, bankable reward and experience. “Aha!” moments and messages assist, when Mercury gets a zap or two from radical change agent Uranus on the 26th.

Stabilizing and order begin to take shape with the Sagittarius New Moon on the 9th. Commitment of no small significance is in the air. The rebooting you experienced with the Virgo solar eclipse in September plays a role; this New Moon carries an imperative to step up and move forward on it. Relationships are a major area of activity, since structure-loving Saturn is the New Moon’s guest of honor, and Juno, the marriage goddess, is his date.

Resistance and impediments stand little chance, with Venus demanding action from Uranus. The month ends with a clash between the Sun and Neptune with the power to dispel illusion, delusion and any lingering fog. The impact can also rain down tenderness, compassion and kindness toward yourself and others. Allow that downpour to wash over you and water the foundations of your desires. They’ve been a long time coming.

Forecast for the 2016 Scorpio New Moon

October 30, 2016
10:38 AM PDT / 1:38 PM EDT / 5:38 PM GMT
7 Scorpio 43

The Scorpio New Moon delivers a Halloween vibe that’ll outlast the costumes, parties and stashes of candy.

It’s dark and mysterious, with an edge of danger. It’s stirring specters and demons, ghosts and other reminders of mortality, and non-rational impulses with the power to overtake sensibility.

The veil is thin, not just between life and death, but also between conscious and subconscious. Each side is effortlessly tapping into the other just now, and often sliding right across the border. Neptune the illusionist is greasing the way with a direct feed to the New Moon that enhances the season’s otherworldly atmosphere.

He is blurring edges, detail and reason, unhinging us from boring old everyday existence, and shrouding everything in a fantastical glow. With this tight Scorpio/Pisces combo, energetic connections have the power to transcend time/space. You may dream of the dead and wake up feeling like you had a conversation, and likely you did. Life may, at times. feel like a ongoing costume party, at other times like your personal sci-fi movie.

Whether that film is horror or fantasy or rated MA will vary. Fears and phobias are walking among us, in firmer, perhaps more threatening form than usual, perhaps more distorted. Desires and raw sexuality are also on the prowl, with a primal. compulsive force that defies closed doors. (Inspirational image: Spock succumbing to feral passion when he returns to his home planet for spawning season.)

When you feel any of these rising up within you — or see them surfacing in another’s behavior — remember this:  Being out in the open makes them easier to spot and easier to recognize for what they are.

This Moon delivers the tools to do just that. With Mercury close by the New Moon, powers of perception are at our disposal bordering on X-ray vision. Information and messages pass wordlessly, with an unshakeable knowing. Even people who claim to be not the least bit psychic are likely to experience bouts of telepathy.

Trust your gut, your instincts, your intuition, the still calm voice within you (as opposed to the chatter-box). It is finely tuned right and at peak operating speed right now.

Also in this lunar toolbox:  Willingness to confront these demons on the hoof, with fearlessness on tap as if an unseen hand is pumping an alleged natural powers triple-action Spooks Be Gone! spray. Whether we intentionally target them or not, this Moon is shining a light under the bed and into the closet, dispelling the little men and other terrors from early childhood (as well as  of more recent provenance).

Relationships stand to improve in honesty and depth of connection.  That fearlessness, and those afore-mentioned desires, have the power to plow down defenses and lead to vulnerability, exposing our full beings before another, and moving into great and tender intimacy, emotional as well as physical.

This Moon has a time-slowing, time-stopping edge to boot. Life may feel more immediate, more in the moment, more intense and focused. The “get down to business” impulse is still with us from the mid-month meeting between Scorpio’s two rulers, Mars and Pluto.

Mars is still ringing with the effects of his clash two days ago with Uranus, cosmic agent of radical, unpredictable change. This has liberated us in some pertinent way, perhaps from a pattern or way of viewing life, perhaps from an agreement or circumstance. We are now able to move more nimbly.

That movement promises to be both inward and forward. You may find yourself in another round  (or three) of clearing gunk out of your head and your psyche,  of confronting more of your own personal demons and fears and defanging them. If not banishing them.

Every bit of load-lightening and baggage removal frees up energy for pursuing that down to business vibe — via sustained, deepened, streamlined, thorough action, step by tiny step, on long-term goals, structures and ways of being that have been undergoing fundamental revamping for years.

The time is ripe. Circumstances are ripe. We are ripe. Forward movement with far-reaching consequences is occurring now, in part through conscious effort, in part as if pulled by a tractor beam or other greater force.  Point yourself in the direction of your dreams and see if you aren’t carried toward them.

Ask, too, for guidance and insight. Ask to be led in the most beneficial direction. Ask for a gentle, loving journey toward your goals. Ask for magic. All are in reach, thanks to the easy flow of the trine between the New Moon and Neptune, ruler of transcendence and the link to all of life and to the divine.

Even with assistance from unseen forces, and visitations from ancestors, and downloads in dreams — all of which are on the rise this coming month —  you are actively participating in everything that unrolls under this New Moon. Don’t shy away from grabbing any opportunities you spy. They are coming off the cooperative sextile between the New Moon and the North Node of destiny.

When in doubt, say yes. If the opportunity doesn’t support the platform and path you’re building, it may not survive. Or may shape-shift into something that does.

Train your attention on what matters most to you and let everything else drop. (Except for those opportunities; they’ll sort themselves out.) Having trouble deciding? Does it matter in the long run? Do you want to be thinking about it on your deathbed? Yes: that level of matters most to you.

This is your moment to go deep, far and long. The reward is progress toward something precious, to you, and a rich experience of life on this side of the veil.

Forecast for the 2016 Aries Full Moon

October 15 – 16, 2016
9:23 PM PDT /12:23 AM EDT / 4:23 AM GMT
23 Aries 14 / 23 Libra 14

The cosmic alarm clock is going off, but don’t bother reaching for the snooze button. There isn’t one. Not that anyone could sleep through the racket.

It’s coming off this year’s supercharged Aries Full Moon and its powder keg of emotional explosions, epiphanies, breakthroughs and jailbreaks. They are blasting us out of complacency and stuck places. Pushing fence sitters to jump to the ground and get going already. Detonating hair-trigger impulses venting pressure that’s been building for months, even years.

It’s all a cathartic antidote to the surreal atmosphere and whiplash-inducing reboots we’ve experienced this year. No more daze, shock, questioning sanity, feeling stalled, licking wounds or dissolving in tears. Raw, primal energy is being unleashed — life force, kundalini, courage, rage — that ignores (or thrives on) danger.

If you’ve been waiting for the nerve to pull off a risk, or make a move that’s given you pause, you now have at your disposal all the incentive, gumption and rocket fuel you could ever want. You are, in effect, packing heat. The complication is, so is everyone else.

The emotional harvest of this Moon is erupting both within us and all around us. Loose cannons and wild cards are everywhere. Ever heard of the phenomenon spontaneous human combustion? You may well see it. You may well experience it.

Little is neat, tidy or subtle. Even action you’ve been considering comes with surprises, leaping out on a schedule you didn’t contemplate, igniting with unexpected force, catapulting you into unforeseen — and probably unforeseeable — circumstances.

The volatility, unpredictability and chaos stem from the Moon’s tighter than tight company with Uranus, agent of radical change, and Eris, the goddess of discord. The Libra Sun may prefer playing nice with others, but that’s outweighed by these rabble rousers inflaming the individual end of the relationship axis represented by the Aries Moon.

Think you’ve already hit the point of “enough is enough?” Think again. With Uranus and Eris stoking this hothead, fearless Moon, there’s little chance of backsliding into dynamics of putting up with, tolerating or settling. The combined impact is making Humpty Dumpty out of out-of-balance arrangements, as well as any lingering inclination to remake yourself to fit someone’s expectations — or your projections, assumptions or beliefs of what someone expects or needs.

The Moon and her rough and rowdy companions are blowing up resistance, impediments and other forms of prisons, internal and circumstantial. The effect is catalytic, radically liberating as well as empowering, challenging us to step up and take charge of ourselves.

It’s time. We feel it, too. This Full Moon is a palpable milestone in the process of foundational upheaval, change and restructuring we’ve been undergoing for some four years, courtesy of the ongoing squabble between Uranus and Pluto.

The Aries Moon’s ruler, Mars, is heading for a conjunction with Pluto, ruler of the unavoidable end of the ongoing change imperative. Their meeting promises targeted, step-by-step, practical, mundane, concrete effort toward long-term goals — including that foundational restructuring we’ve been undergoing.

These two bodies are the traditional and modern ruler of Scorpio, the sign currently being visited by the ruler of the Libra Sun, Venus, goddess of all we hold dear (love, money, creativity, precious baubles, etc.). All the epiphanies and jailbreaks, all the apple carts being upended, all the glorious conflagration of this Full Moon, all are freeing us, hearts, energy and resources and all, for incremental progress on those long-term goals and revamped structures — including the relationships that are going along with us.

It’s time to get moving. It’s time to be bold. It’s time to just do it, whatever “it” we may have been pondering.

Postponing is unlikely, what with the cosmic alarm clock blaring for most of the rest of the month. Mars continues carrying out the cosmic change imperative by challenging Uranus, in an action-demanding square that peaks on the 28th and moves us further onto and into updated structures.

The Full Moon and the fortnight following it involve a concept that will dominate next year:  self-actualization. This Moon is priming our engines for a three-stage blast-off into that, and more, when order-loving Saturn trines radical Uranus, from the coming holiday season through November of next year.

That blast-off is part of the point of the last few years’ upheaval. This Moon frees and preps us for the journey.
