2016-12 W51: Forecasts for Week 51 of 2016
WEEK 51 (W51) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 50 / W50)
Close to two months have passed since we were knocked down by computer and internet problems and just decided to take some time off. In the next few weeks we plan to resurrect this blog and its forecasts. This is a week that tends to especially affect Martians (athletes, police, and soldiers); they tend to benefit though not always.
Sunday: hard work or the easy way out. Each has the advantages, and you will be compensated accordingly. Monday is an odd day with an odd feeling; wrap up issues involving healthcare, education, or both and move forward. Tuesday has a Full Moon, written about much elsewhere. This one comes less than a week before Mercury Retrograde station, so expect more weirdness than most FMs. Tuesday and Wednesday are turning points for some people.
Wednesday the Moon is waning and emotions tend to trump logic, unfortunately. Wednesday is also important for Martians. Thursday a conflict emerges between dreams and reality, but the two can be made to work together to accomplish useful results. Friday brings us practical ideas involving education, healthcare, or both, but it is mostly a day off. Saturday is very busy but may not accomplish anything. However, if you can properly focus yourself (and those working with you), then you MIGHT can accomplish something useful.
Sun BiSeptiles the North Node, and we catch a glimpse of an important possibility if we are willing to work for it. Mars is unusually active today and dominates all outer planet activity. This is a special day for soldiers, police, “agents” and similar. However, it is not necessarily an easy day for them; even more than others they will have to work and overcome adversity to obtain the gifts that can be had.
Moon (Taurus) forms a yod with Jupiter on one leg and Saturn on the other. The Jupiter leg is obviously the one most people will tend to pick (which would you rather have (Jupiter) higher ed and luck or Saturn (hard work, difficulties, and tests)), but the Saturn leg is strengthened by the Sun (which joined Saturn yesterday). So, oddly, this might be a tough call since some people really will want to pick the “hard work” leg of the decision because of the lasting gifts it can bring.
Moon goes void about 10 PM CST, and that does not affect many in the Western Hemisphere. People in the EU / UK might want to take the evening off, however. Jim Shawvan sees this window as an “Opportunity Period,” so some of you may find special benefit, particularly if you are an earth sign (Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo).
Today is a bit of an odd “sideways” kind of day with Venus semisquare Chiron creating a sense of urgency in matters involving health, education, or both. Whatever it is you have to get done, wrap it up and move forward.
Mars quadrinoviles Vesta, and we see some fleeting but special insight regarding Martians (police, military, athletes) and traditions. Hygeia receives aspects from Pluto and Neptune, so BIG changes are coming regarding healthcare. We might hear about some of those today.
Venus is quincunx the North Node, and this is simply unpleasant with little gain or benefit to anyone. Vesta trines Astraea, and traditions involving the legal community (Lawyers and Judges in addition to law enforcement) are important today.
Today is a Full Moon (Moon in Gemini and Sun in Sagittarius), and much has been written about it elsewhere. The FM perfects just past 6 PM CST, a bit past Sunset in the Central time zone where your astrologer is located, and we make decisions involving communications, transportation, truth and lies, law, higher education and long distance travel. Mercury Retrograde station is only five days away, and we feel it all week this week. We feel it particularly strongly today and tomorrow.
Although today is another day of urgency, it is also a day of insights. Pay attention and capture the ideas that come to you. Again, this is another day that tends to benefit Martians (athletes, police, soldiers). Surprises happen to those specifically involved with the legal system, and a sense of urgency emerges along with some good ideas. Write it down.
Moon is in Cancer, so emotions can dominate logic and reason. The moon is waning now, and Mercury Retrograde is only a few days away. Expect glitches and misunderstandings. Double check everything. Be specific.
A struggle between dreams and reality emerges. Dreams have a bit of an advantage today, though that is not necessarily “good.” Practical ideas can emerge from dreams, and dreams can be reduced to reality in some cases. If you write poetry or lyrics, or are a photographer or videographer, then this might be your day.
Moon continues in Cancer until it becomes void about 3:30 PM CST. Jim Shawvan marks this as an “Opportunity Period” though water signs tend to benefit the most.
Venus noviles Chiron, and we can receive important and useful ideas or skills regarding education, health, or both. As we always say, write it down (or otherwise capture the idea). Pluto noviles Astraea, and similarly useful ideas or insights reveal themselves regarding power struggles or legal matters, likely both. Again, capture them. Do note that all of this may be blended together or might be separate.
Moon enters Leo early, about 7 AM CST, but it is not the dominate force today. We seem to have some relief from lunar intensity after two days in those domains. That is a relief for many of us.
Moon in Leo, not typically the best place for the Moon is hyperactive today after absence yesterday. Much of it is “much ado about nothing,” the proverbial tempest in the teapot, but it seems important in the moment. Do what you must, but keep priorities in mind. Venus septiles North Node and biseptiles Saturn, and this means we can achieve something practical if we are willing to work for it. Decide what matters to you.
A very loose yod involving the Moon at the apex, Chiron in Pisces (dreams, healthcare, poetry) on one leg and Mercury / Pluto in Capricorn (details and power struggles regarding finances, stocks, bonds, and the corporate world) on the other leg, presents us with a decision between dreams and health versus finances and career. Choose well.
