2016-12 W52: Forecasts for Week 52 of 2016

2016-12 W52: Forecasts for Week 52 of 2016

WEEK 52 (W52) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 51 / W51)

The Moon is waning just a few days past full with both the Winter Solstice on Wednesday the 21st along with the shift to the last quarter.  By itself, those are enough to make this week “interesting” but the Mercury Retrograde station Monday precisely on the day that the College of Cardinals, er the Electoral College, meets to decide (if that is possible for them) on our new president.  Let’s hope for white smoke so we can all move forward.  Saturday contains the highly influential trine of Saturn to Uranus, and the following week contains the Uranus direct station.  Though almost all of the Uber Liberals don’t get it, Donald Trump IS a Uranian president-elect, and this week is important to him (and us).  These Uranus / Saturn / Mercury shifts on top of the Solstice mark significant turning points regarding large scale shifts.

Sunday is the day before the retrograde station (but well into the two week “shadow” period).  Expect glitches particularly regarding transportation and communication.  But Sunday is also a day that favors gained from compassion to others.  Monday is dominated by the retrograde station and a semi-square of Mercury to Mars.  Watch the temper and the words; chances are good you will say something in the heat of the moment that you regret later.  Monday is extremely complex and very Martian.   Tuesday continues some of Monday’s complexity but is more of a “cleanup” for those reeling from the aftermath of Monday.

Wednesday  marks a turning point on many levels including the power metaphysical turning point of the Winter Solstice.  The ancients believed othat the Winter Solstice was the ultimate symbol of hope, and powerful arguments have been made that it is the basis of any number of religions speaking of “rising from the dead.”  You are certainly free to believe whatever you wish.

Thursday is a day of practical action where you can “get things done” keeping in mind the shifts in Mercury and Uranus.  Friday has the predictable annual karma of last minute holiday gift shopping amplified.  As we said previously, Saturday contains the highly influential trine of Saturn to Uranus, and the following week contains the Uranus direct station.

Healthcare is a BIG issue this week.  And, this is a busy week!

Sunday

Sunday is the day before the retrograde station (but well into the two week “shadow” period).  Expect glitches particularly regarding transportation and communication.  But Sunday is also a day that favors gained from compassion to others.

Help others!  Help others!  We cannot say it enough today!  This has a similar feel to the Saturday night that contained the Pulse Club shootings.  Helping someone can save lives, maybe many lives.  Be helpful.

Monday

Monday is dominated by the retrograde station and a semi-square of Mercury to Mars.  Watch the temper and the words; chances are good you will say something in the heat of the moment that you regret later.  Monday is extremely complex and very Martian.

The most favorable aspect today is Vesta trine Hygeia, and we have some real benefit from traditions and routine procedures in healthcare.  Stick to basics and AVOID being “creative” in this area.  BUT you will obtain powerful INSIGHT (similar to tomorrow).  Capture them for later, but know that glitches can happen today.  The rest is very tricky, but, again, can provide you with useful insights.

Tuesday

Tuesday continues some of Monday’s complexity but is more of a “cleanup” for those reeling from the aftermath of Monday.  Lunar activity is moderate with Last Quarter starting this evening in the Western Hemisphere and tomorrow in EU / UK.

The day ALMOST seems quiet, except that huge issues are emerging that provide powerful insights in events that are coming soon.  Capture what fleets by you with writing, drawing, a camera, or audio recorder, and keep it for later.  Almost certainly you will have useful ideas and may develop useful skills from insights captured today.

Wednesday

Wednesday  marks a turning point on many levels including the power metaphysical turning point of the Winter Solstice.  The ancients believed that the Winter Solstice was the ultimate symbol of hope, and powerful arguments have been made that it is the basis of any number of religions speaking of “rising from the dead.”  You are certainly free to believe whatever you wish.  The Solstice happens at 4:44 AM CST this morning, so if you celebrate the Solstice you might do that Tuesday night and today with a breakfast.  (Some numerologists would consider “4:44” to be a powerful “Stargate,” a portal for change and opportunity (both gain or loss, so use it carefully and wisely).)

Martians are super-active today, and we might see some violence.  So, be careful regarding dangerous people, places, and things, and avoid being one of those yourself.

Thursday

Thursday is a day of practical action where you can “get things done” keeping in mind the shifts in Mercury and Uranus.  You may be FORCED to be practical today in some manner, such as taking care of automotive maintenance that you have neglected or something similar.  If you are really on top of such things, then today can be a breakthrough day for you where you have powerful insights regarding such practical matter.

Healthcare is a BIG issue this week.  Uranus sesequiquadrate leaves some of us desparate to push through visits to healthcare providers before insurance deductables reset in January.  But surprises are likely, and other, unexpected, issues might emerge.

Friday

Friday has the predictable annual karma of last minute holiday gift shopping amplified but, again, powerful insights to those who have properly prepared.  Ceres (food, prosperity) sesquiquadrates (square + semi-square, and a powerful sense of “urgency”) the North Node, and we truly wonder if we can afford that superb gift we would like to give.  No question about it, it would enrich both them and us.  But, can we afford it?  You must decide.

Neptune squares Astraea, and legal issues emerge.  These tend to involve poetry, photography, or healthcare, but I bet that they might involve issues related to visitation for divorced parents and their children.

Saturday

Saturday contains the highly influential trine of Saturn to Uranus, and the following week contains the Uranus direct station.  Our experience is that “day of” perfection of long term outer planet aspects such as this one often result in NOTHING.  Rather, a lunation such as the previous Full Moon or upcoming New Moon, or station such as the Mercury or Uranus stations, usually present the “precipitating events” related to the big picture shift.

That said, this is Christmas Eve and we expect some people will have “surprises” on Christmas Day that are a bit more “surprising” than anyone expected.  Mars quincunx Vesta indicates some significant disputes may emerge about traditions, particularly if they involve Martians (athletes, police, soldiers, and similar).  Hygeia squares the North Node, so watch for any overexertion related to things like shoveling snow.  Instead, use that energy to give a gift to the less fortunate.

2016-12 W51: Forecasts for Week 51 of 2016

2016-12 W51: Forecasts for Week 51 of 2016

WEEK 51 (W51) / (EUROPEAN WEEK 50 / W50)

Overview

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.

Sunday

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).

Monday

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday

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.

Friday

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.

Saturday

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.

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH

Painting and words by Michelle McClunan

One of the up-sides to writing these newsletters is that I get to stop the outer noise of my life and ponder things more deeply and intensely than usual…deep and intense both being characteristics of Scorpio, which is our theme for November.

There’s a huge focus on the water element over the next few weeks, starting with an intense, transformational, but healing  New Moon on the 31st October. Mercury joins the sun and the moon in Scorpio and the trio form a flowing aspect to mystical, mysterious Neptune in Pisces.

Water… water… everywhere… can you feel it?

How does the water element relate to us personally ? It represents feelings, emotions, sensitivity, compassion, empathy, flow, nurturing, connection to all that is, purification, cleaning, clearing, power, tenacity. If  water isn’t channelled, it can be overwhelming, scary and unpredictable and of…

YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLES CARMONA For the week of October 24-30, 2016

Spiritual Rx

YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLES CARMONA
For the week of October 24-30, 2016

For all signs: The biggie this week comes on Sunday, Oct. 30, which happens to be the New Moon in Scorpio. According to East/West astrologer Cathy Coleman, PhD: “Set intentions around shared finances, and strong emotional issues,” since those are a big part of Scorpio’s province. Scorpio is also about intensity and passion, and not just about sex and love. That’s too obvious for subtle Scorpio. So what is your passion in life? What deep subjects, mundane issues, and cherished interests make your body tingle to the very end of your nerve roots? The Scorpio New Moon is your opportunity to pursue your passion relentlessly. Scorpio, ruled by mysterious Pluto (and fiery Mars, depending on the astrological tradition you subscribe to) is not interested in superficiality, rather, it prefers to investigate and dig deeply. So dig!

Venus is now partying it up in Sagittarius but having a little spat with Neptune who is staggering home on the walk of shame to Pices on 10/25. Some huge disappointment for some of you for your love life and financial status. I suppose if you didn’t blow your whole paycheck on that mail order bride scam a few months ago, you’d be taking that vacation your friends wanted you to go on and find a real person.
