The Moon continues in Altruistic Aquarius, switching to Sympathetic Pisces later in the day (until 10:52 pm EDT). Excellent energies for immersing ourselves in group activities. Our creativity, psychic, and spiritual impulses are also accentuated with the Moon’s monthly conjunction to Imaginative Neptune, our symbolic link to the Divine (2:49 pm EDT).

Romance also gets the go ahead with the Moon’s harmonious aspects to the Illuminating Sun and Communicator Mercury in Relationship Libra.

What we want to watch out for today, however, is a tendency to “faulty judgment,” especially over-promising “more goods than we can deliver.” This is because of Mental Mercury’s powerful quinqunx aspect to Exaggerating Jupiter.  This is also a good time to watch our “word-count,” and to remember that “less is more,” lest we bore others with our “rambling speech.”

Today’s Quote For The Day:

“You must learn to be still in the midst of activity, and to be vibrantly alive in repose.” Indira Gandhi

On This Date In History:

On October 17, 1933, scientist, Albert Einstein, arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. The popular Venus and Mars Love Duo were tightly conjunct in Scholarly Sagittarius, the sign that rules long-distance travel.  Both Venus and Mars were also harmoniously sextile to Fortuitous, Protective Jupiter (the natural ruler of Sagittarius) in Diplomatic Libra. These energies could be interpreted as “a notable, popular academic” (Venus-Mars) seeking “opportunities abroad” (Jupiter and Sagittarius) in a more “peaceful atmosphere” (Libra).

There was also an exact, very potent Cardinal-T Cross activated in the sky that day involving the Sun in Libra, Uranus in Aries, and Pluto in Cancer. A Cardinal-T Cross usually tends to “force action” and especially with the outer planets involved, there was the opportunity then for action occurring that would be “significant for the collective” (Pluto rules the masses).

Pluto also rules control and tyranny, and Einstein was seeking to flee a dangerous and controlling environment that also put “his personal safety” at risk (Pluto does rule life and death issues).

It is interesting to note here, too, that Uranus, the ruler of scientific Aquarius, signifies “genius,” and it was deposited in the “new beginnings” sign of Aries. Uranus additionally represents the quest for “personal freedom.”

Transforming Pluto was in domestic-ruling Cancer (the U.S. is also a Cancer country), and the Life-Giving Sun was in peace-loving Libra.

English translation: “A genius embarks on a new personal beginning, makes a transformational residential change, in his bid to live in a more peaceful, safer environment, and enjoy a freer life. A personal move with major life-changing implications  (Uranus and Pluto) for the planet.”

Notable Deaths: Barbara Billingsley, who portrayed mom, “June Cleaver,” on the 1950s hit TV sitcom, “Leave It To Beaver,” died on Saturday at the age of 94.

Barbara, a Sagittarian, born December 22, 1915, had her Nurturing Moon in Cancer, the sign that denotes “Mother.” The Cancer Moon helped to make her a naturally sympathetic figure.

Her Moon was also conjunct both Pluto and Saturn.  Moon-Pluto can give one great “healing ability” (the rejuvenating nature of Pluto) and deep emotional insight.  Interestingly, Pluto, ruling “the masses,” can also make one famous, and Barbara would forever be remembered for her “Cancerian-Moon role” as “Wally and Beaver’s Mom.”

The Moon-Saturn aspect also gave her depth and seriousness, and no doubt, she probably took her role as a “Mom,” very seriously, in real life and on TV.  Barbara was a beautiful lady and will be greatly missed. (Below is a Youtube link to Leave It To Beaver.)
