This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Gemini Moon, that will turn Void-Of-Course at approximately 3 p.m. on the east coast and at around noon, out here in the west. There’s a lot going on in the sky. We could talk about it, but I am restless and this Gemini energy needs something out of the ordinary to stay interested. If you don’t mind, let’s talk a little bit about what happens when the Moon moves from sign to sign.
At the moment the Moon is situated at the 18th Degree of Gemini. How this affects us, from person to person, depends on where the 18th Degree of Gemini sits in the individual horoscope. In my own case, that degree of the Zodiac is “Intercepted” in the 12th House of my natal chart.
When the Moon passes through the 12th House it accentuates the need to basically disappear, or go undercover, and hide out. There is a hidden quality to this area of the horoscope that brings out the need to remain behind the scenes and do whatever we do in a solitary mode for about two-and-a-half days. Just so you know: for the last 24 hours I have been holed up in my house, casting charts, working on a book, and writing away in my bathrobe with no one but the cat anywhere in sight. It’s a little after 4 a.m. and I expect to be here for the next 24 hours, doing up my taxes and editing an article.
By this time tomorrow morning the Moon will enter Cancer and cross my Ascendant. That angle of the chart is where the Sun was rising on the day that I was born. Whenever the Moon, or any celestial body crosses the Ascendant it shines a light on the horizon and all of a sudden what needed to remain hidden wants to be seen, and/or it gets exposed by default. I have watched these changes in my own patterns and observed the way they operate in other people’s lives for a long time. And because it’s my job to know how the Moon and the planets are moving at any given moment, time and repetition have taught me that we respond to these rhythms in the same way that the oceans rise and fall two times a day.
If you are in need of more specific aspects and predictions, you can find them on YouTube; there are a zillion astrologers out there; all of them have something to say. I don’t mind talking about things from that angle, but I know too much about this subject to think that I have a handle on the master plan—and once in a while, I have to find a way to do this that allows me to respect the art. Keep an eye on your Moon sign, pay attention to the rhythms that get buried underneath having too much to do, get off your ass and pay your taxes—and enjoy this week’s ‘scopes.
