Forecast 5/20/13 Make this Monday morning chock full of appointments, communications and outreach to maximize its potential. Or you may want to quietly bring a solo enterprise to fruition.

Regardless of where you put your energy, the outcome bodes well. Once the Moon is void-of-course (VOC)* from 12:48 p.m. to 1:07 p.m. ET, organize your desk, email or enjoy a midday meditation.

When the moon enters Libra, the mood shifts to a more conversational one. The Sun goes into Gemini at 5:09 p.m. and it may seem as though everyone has something to say. There are some pictures in the sky, which indicate stress, not the least of which is the exact Uranus/Neptune square.

Lightnin_CapitolTo explain this, picture this. Uranus symbolizes the unexpected, change and revolution. In Aries it heightens the fiery quality to it as well as aggression and a singular impact. Pluto symbolizes irrevocable transformation, power and finance. In Capricorn the emphasis is on corporations, the status quo and institutions. Both mythological stories are linked to destruction and dramatic shifts. When they are together, unprecedented changes occur.

This configuration is extremely rare and echoes the buildup of WWII (the last time there was a square) and the 1960’s (when Uranus and Pluto were in standing in line from Earth’s perspective).

We’ve already lived through a couple of these days- scan the dates below and you might recall what was going on… this let’s you know how “personal” the experience is for you.

These are the dates of when this configuration is exact, but it doesn’t have to be the “day of” for us to be feeling its effects:

Pay attention to what presents itself to you today and what’s in the news. Each of us has a responsibility to be as present as possible in these challenging times.

Even if you don’t normally write, you may be moved to jot down thoughts, especially ones that occur in the evening. If you are aware of something that has outlived its usefulness, now is the time to welcome the change.

Even though volatility and power plays may be rampant, there is also a current of rollicking energy to utilize for a greater goal. It may feel like riding a charging elephant, but if you can hold on, you can shake your world.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course in Virgo, it’s great for organizing, finessing a project or exercise routine and clearing out closets.
