May 7 2009

On the first day of Retrograde, my true love brought to me...Moon starts off the day Void of Course, and enters Scorpio at 9:48 am PDT. She is sextile Pluto, exact at 3:26 pm PDT. Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune are still conjunct, see prior posts for details. After a morning off to a sloggy start, a good chance of deep, profound emotions with an intensity that could be obsessive. The usual caveat with Moon VOC mornings: the extra caffeine consumed won't kick in till later when it really kicks in. There could be a bit of an unsettled vibe in the air, with a tendency to look to retail therapy as a temporary cure. If you can resist, it usually is good advice to not purchase shiny things, anything other than the usual stable staples during Retrograde. Higher percentage of broken toys, returns, snafus. Not that anybody listens to such dreary advice...

The Birthcard today is the Queen of Diamonds, a Saturn implementation of a Mercury core, with a 3 of Diamonds inside and a 9 of Diamonds outside. Captain Beefheart, Lloyd Bridges, Hugh Hefner, Jerry Zucker, Aristotle Onassis share this Birthcard, along with Edward Teller, Antonin Scalia, and Rupert Murdoch.
