2016-10 W43: Forecasts for Week 43 of 2016
WEEK 43 (W43) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 42 / W42)
Sunday is wrapup and recovery from an intense Full Moon. After the Aries Moon v/c ends, Moon moves into Taurus and people become lazy, stubborn, or both. Practical matters are favored, but a few ingenious ideas may come your way. Capture them. We feel Mars conjunct Pluto (Wednesday) as early as Sunday. Monday is a day to “take care of business” especially regarding health / healthcare issues. Tuesday you will be tempted to chase your tail and spin your wheels. Let other people do that. Wednesday is a powerful and complex day that is an important turning point for many people. Thursday still feels like Wednesday and continues processing the important issues that emerged. Friday tells us that we MUST complete whatever was started on Monday. But the Sun is void of course, and things may not work the way we planned. Saturday the Sun is still void most of the day, and we feel like “fate” is acting prior to the Sun moving into Scorpio for the next thirty days.
The excitement of the Full Moon is past for most people though some will still feel it. The Moon remains v/c in Aries after the FM until slightly past 10 AM CDT. After that, the Moon moves into Taurus and many people feel either lazy or hungover or both. The rest become focused on practical matters: money, housekeeping, physical fitness, beauty and cosmetics and so forth. Some artists have interesting ideas, but the quincunxes of the day tend to make “things” go haywire for anybody attempting serious efforts.
Jim Shawvan claims an “Opportunity Period” for this day and the next (Monday), so maybe some people can find benefit. Venus BiQuintile Uranus supports this idea, as does Mercury BiQuintile Neptune, and you should keep a notepad or other way of capturing innovative and unusual ideas today. Those that develop “experimental poetry” (or anything similar) may find today to be an important day.
Jupiter and Mars are active today with higher order aspects, so we expect that those in the legal field can also obtain important insights. If you are in an educational setting (as either teacher or student), then you efforts today may represent and particularly important turning point.
Your Birthday Today:
Focus on practical solutions this year while noting the innovative ideas that come to you. These same innovations may have a different practical solution later. If you are a poet, then this might be “your year.” If you are not a poet, consider learning about poetry and attempting to write some as an exercise for self development. (Who knows? You might find a gift that you did not know you had!)
Moon moves v/c in Taurus near 10 AM CDT, but Jim Shawvan describes this window as an “Opportunity Period” which persists until about 9:30 AM CDT Tuesday. We recommend sticking to practical matters or things that Taurus can favor (writing or playing music, sculpture, gardening).
Sun Semisquares the North Node (Karma) and is Sesquiquadrate Neptune giving an odd sense of urgency to this day regarding matters involving Neptunian matters (endings, confinement, illness, dreams, alcohol, drugs, poetry, music, photography, and videography). If any of these matters arise then “take care of business” today. That is the best use of your time and energy.
Pallas moves direct today (Station Direct, Pallas), so some ingenious ideas may leap into your head about how to solve certain kinds of problems. Whether or not you act on them during a moon v/c (“opportunity period” in this case) or not will be a decision you must make in your particular situation.
We are already “feeling” Mars conjunct Pluto (Wednesday) by today.
Your Birthday today:
Focus on matters involving health, poetry, music, photography, and video this year. Make a home movie; you might have an auteur hidden in your soul. Avoid alcohol and drugs, and if you use them then this is your year to get help and quit. Take care of business.
The void of course Taurus Moon moves into Gemini about 9:30 AM CDT and is in the “too early to tell” period for most of the afternoon. If you “leap into action” during this window, you may need to shift direction later based on new information.
We note that Martians (Intelligence agencies, police, athletes) will tend to be active during the void and “too early to tell” period but will be going in circles trying to decipher abstract information that does not quite make sense to them. Martian or not, avoid “spinning your wheels” on this day. Do what works and defer the rest.
Your birthday today:
You can accomplish things this year, but you have to be extra careful not to expend time and energy on frivolous pursuits that lead nowhere. Choose your battles carefully.
Mars joins Pluto in Capricorn today, and you have been feeling it all week already. Financial issues become pivotal on both a global and local (individual) scale. This is an incredibly complex day with many different messages for different individual people. Unlike some days, each person today receives a slightly different message.
Glitches happen, and they dominate the day. What you think is a “miscommunication” may be precisely what you need to hear. Slips of the tongue happen, and some of these slips “sink ships.” Other messages are garbled, a bit like your own personal “Mercury retrograde for a day.” Issues involving education, healthcare, or both rise to the surface, but confusion dominates (Mercury quincunx Chiron). Expect to be misunderstood.
Mercury opposes Uranus early tomorrow, but we feel it today. Curiously, writers, inventors, and other innovators can capitalize on the power struggles (Mars / Pluto) and confusion (Mercury / Chiron) of today. Brilliant ideas are had by those with eyes to see them or ears to hear them (or both). If you are participating in Nanowrimo this year, this is the day to structure your “plot outline” in preparation for November.
Vesta enters Leo give a sense of “pomp and circumstance” to our traditions; Jupiter Quadrinoviles Ceres and we obtain an important insight or skill regarding either our prosperity (money) or diet (possibly health weight loss).
Your birthday today:
This will be one of the most transformative years of your life. Expect miscommunications; if you are sly you might profit from them. This is also the year to “write your novel” (or other book). If you want to lose weight / take up bodybuilding, this is the year to do it.
We still feel the effects of yesterday as well as Mercury opposite Uranus perfecting shortly before 3 AM CDT. All of yesterday still applies, but most of the morning is lost to a Gemini Void Moon from about 6 AM CDT until about 10:30 AM CDT.
Too early too tell applies again for the afternoon, similar to Tuesday, and we need to pause and evaluate rather than push forward. In doing so, if you can fully identify and eliminate blockages to “moving forward,” then you can do so.
Sun Biquintile Chiron gives us a brilliant idea regarding healthcare, education, or both. Capture it and maybe discuss it with the people closest to you that you trust.
Your birthday today:
Be methodical in how you implement the rather brilliant ideas that come to you. Cross every “t” and dot every “i” and you can obtain superb results.
Moon (Cancer, its home) opposes Mars / Pluto (Capricorn) and forms what might arguably be called a (very) loose “T-Square” with Uranus. That makes today a bit irritating and contentious, but you can still “get things done” if you focus yourself and avoid frivolous disputes that do little more than waste your time. Productivity is possible with the right focus.
Mercury Semisquares the North Node and is Sesquiquadrate Neptune (as the Sun did on Monday) and issues from Monday MUST be wrapped up today. You know what to do; DO IT!
Higher order messages do come, but they are extraordinarily subtle and require the keenest of minds to observe them and capture them. Since you are reading this and are appropriately forewarned, you can probably do just that if you make the effort.
The Sun is void for almost all of the day, so stick to routine. You can make progress, but do not launch anything new just yet. Some re-do might be necessary later.
Your birthday today:
You will have to work for it this year, but you can do it if you stay focused. Fundamental changes are afoot in how you live and work and do things. Expect a shift (a big one). Pay attention. Subtle messages will matter.
The Sun continues void most of the day, and we recommend using it for a day of rest if you can. When a planet is in the last degree of a sign, the feeling emerges that “fate” is in play. Decisions just seem to be out of our hands. The Tsunami ruins our well planned party. The Sun is like that today as it is void until it goes into Scorpio about 6 PM CDT with the next two or three days being in the “too early to tell” period.
Certainly you can do things, but we recommend you stick to routine. Observation is favored over action.
Outer planets are profoundly busy, but they are sending us messages and insights. Major changes are coming, and do not be surprised to see someone you care about go into the hospital today. Poets dream and lovers sigh.
Your birthday today:
Address ALL health issues this year. Get a checkup, make certain you are on top of vision and dental and so forth. A change is coming, a major change, and it may not happen this year but the next instead. Prepare as if a storm is coming, and write poetry and songs about it along the way.
