Little Miss New Age Makes Her New Moon In Cancer Affirmations

posted by Matthew Currie

It was Thursday evening, and Little Miss New Age lit the candles that she set aside for her New Moon affirmations to coincide with the New Moon at 5 degrees Cancer that was coming up early Friday morning.

“I love the New Moon,” she said to her cat Glinda, who paid no attention at all. “I think it’s wonderful how the Universe gives us a chance once a month to set out our affirmations and really make them happen. And… let’s see…” she said as she examined the chart for the New Moon.

“We know that the Moon is particularly powerful in Cancer, and that the Sun and Moon conjunct there makes for powerful and deep emotions. And, look! It’s in a close trine to Neptune!” she squealed with delight. “That’s excellent for spiritual pursuits.” She lit the purple candle and made a note to take her meditation class more seriously in the next month.

“And look! Jupiter is in Cancer too! That’s a wonderful opportunity for philosophical growth!” She said as she lit the orange candle and made an affirmation that in the next month she would read and study more.

“Jupiter is also good for money. Yes, that’s it, I will manifest more money for myself this month!” she said as she lit the green candle.

“Am I forgetting anything?” she asked the cat. “It seems like I’m missing something about this New Moon chart.”

The cat did not respond.

“I suppose not.” She said after a thoughtful pause. “Sure, the Uranus-Pluto Square is still happening, but that doesn’t mean I need to worry about anything. I will remain strong and positive and my Spirit Guides will see me through any of my difficulties. In fact, that energy might help me punch through some obstacles and achieve my goals even better.”

She sat there for a while and thought about her affirmations, and then blew the candles out before going to bed. She had a harder time than usual falling asleep that night, wondering if she had missed anything important in that New Moon chart.

In fact, she had missed the exact opposition between Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries.

Three weeks later Little Miss New Age was in jail, awaiting trial for the crime of robbing her meditation class at gunpoint. She had almost gotten away with a small fortune, but a leg cramp from sitting in the lotus position for too long slowed down her escape and she was tackled by a cop.

Eventually she would go on to lead a meditation class in prison, and found that she had plenty of time to read and study there as well.


This particular New Moon is a powerful one. You can make what you want happened with your life, but be careful what you wish for.

Mercury Retrograde: A Smaller Slice Of Pi

(Mercury Retrograde is in effect until July 1st… CLICK HERE to learn more about dealing with it)

Mercury continues its backwards march through Gemini, bringing with it cluttered thinking and a tendency to grasp at the wrong solution to difficult issues. Don’t feel too bad if the process has made you make unwise decisions, though: times like these can mess with the best of minds. Like, for example, that time the Indiana State Legislature tried to re-write how The Universe works. Politicians love simple, straightforward facts. Unfortunately, life is too often filled with messy details that don’t fit into a soundbite or a poster. Politicians sometimes respond to this by rounding the uneven corners off of The Truth. And, in one rather famous case, they decided to tell the Universe how to do its job.

You’ll probably recall the concept of “pi” from High School: it’s the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. In other words, if a circle is 1 meter across, it is π meters around. π itself is what’s called an “irrational number” like √2, for example. Most kids sitting in a classroom get a little nervous at the concept of a “number” that is, in fact, a long string of numbers (3.1415926535897932… and on and on for billions of decimal places with no end).

So, on January 18th, 1897… with Mercury retrograde in “don’t tell me what to do” Aquarius… and with Saturn (the traditional ruler of Aquarius… “laying down the law”) conjunct Uranus (the modern ruler of Aquarius… “the weirder the better!”)… the Indiana State Legislature began debate on a bill which defined pi as 3.2. That’s all: just plain old 3.2. Finally, a government makes things simpler and easier to use! Too bad that the bill contradicted the Known Universe actually works. Other than that small problem… great idea guys!

The original mind behind the bill was a Dr. Edwin J. Goodman, an amateur mathematical enthusiast and physician who had claimed to have discovered the true value of pi… right down to patenting the idea, so that anyone attempting to use the “more accurate” version of the mathematical constant would owe the good Doctor a user’s fee.

The bill passed the House unanimously, and moved on to the State Senate. Fortunately for Indiana engineers (and the people who rely on their vehicles and elevators) the Bill died in the Senate… once an actual Professor of Mathematics explained to the Senators how utterly ridiculous the concept was. So, once Mercury was no longer retrograde… the bill died.

So you see: don’t feel too badly about any bad decisions you’ve made lately, any drunk dialing to exes you may regret, or any recent bad decisions. You may have misinterpreted what The Universe wanted you to do… but at least you didn’t tell The Universe how to do its job…

The Cancer Horoscope And Pep Talk, 2014-2015

posted by Matthew Currie

beliefnet astrology matthew currie cancer yearly horoscope(SCENE: The Astrological Locker Room, at halftime. CANCER sits alone, slumped over with face in both hands. THE COACH enters and blows a whistle, startling CANCER out of the dejection, momentarily.)

COACH: Okay, listen up! You’re doing great out there kid, great! You’re halfway through the Uranus-Pluto square! The next exact date happens in December, and then next March. Then you’re pretty much coasting out of the woods until 2017. Maybe 2018, depending on how much orb you give it.

(CANCER slumps again)

COACH: Hey, none of that! Chin up, you’re holding up under the pressure fantastically! I know, I know, you’re thinking “how much longer can this go on?” Well, keep it together Cancer. Before this, Gemini had to put up with a decade of Pluto in its opposite sign, And Gemini turned out just fine. (Turns to address the corner of the locker room) You’re doing fine, right Gemini?

(Sitting on the floor in a corner of the locker room, dressed in a hospital gown and slippers, is GEMINI. GEMINI is rocking back and forth and is holding a crayon, drawing stick men running away from a tyrannosaurus. GEMINI’s eyes are wide open and staring at nothing in particular. Gemini has one eyebrow shaved off.)

GEMINI: Fuh. Fuh. Fuh fuh fuh. Fine! Fine! I’m fine! Fuhfuhfuh.

COACH: That’s the stuff, Gemini!

GEMINI: Nurse… come soon…?

COACH: (Returning his attention to CANCER) Here’s the key to pulling this off. Ever notice how most of the other animal symbols in the Zodiac have skeletons? You don’t. Your soft squidginess is all hidden under that shell of yours, and that means if you want to grow, you’re going to have to shed your shell! Shake it off! You can do this! That which does not kill you makes you stronger!

Oh, and: Happy Birthday.

Now, here’s what you can expect over the next twelve months.

JULY: Saturn goes direct in your Fifth House, and Jupiter enters your Second House. Let’s not forget that Saturn has been on your side for a while now, and we will be for most of this year. Nobody thinks of Saturn as “fun,” but having it in a nice constructive trine to your Sign can help you hold it together when everything is hitting the fan. Also, Jupiter entering your Second House ought to at least be good for a few bucks over the course of the next year. Go ahead, spend it on therapy. You know you want to.

AUGUST: The money comes in and the money goes out. You will have a stronger than average urge to spend it on recreation, and I say go right ahead kid. You’ve earned it.

SEPTEMBER: Well, Pluto has finally come out of its long retrograde, and Venus in Virgo may see you doing some mental and emotional healing. Try a little tenderness… on yourself.

OCTOBER: Now here’s where things get tricky: there are two eclipses in October, and the first one on October 8th is a Solar Eclipse in Libra and Aries, closely aspecting Uranus. Look back to whatever subject areas of your life were driving you crazy in April and May, and then brace yourself for some unexpected changes, for either better or worse, in those areas. How exciting!

NOVEMBER: By recent standards, November should turn out to be pretty peaceful for you. Also, Neptune comes off its retrograde. And hey, a word about Neptune: it’s going to be in Pisces until 2025… even longer than Pluto is going to be in your opposite sign Capricorn. You’ve always been the imaginative type, and Neptune spending a decade yet in your Ninth House may literally help you dream up a better life for yourself. So, no matter what hits, don’t be afraid to pull up a vibe and get groovy with it. Things will work out in the end.

DECEMBER: Saturn finally moves out of your Fifth House and into your Sixth House. That means that the heavy burden that you’ve sometimes been feeling around romance and children and creativity will suddenly shift to… well, little pieces of everything. You will be spending the next couple of years facing any consequences from either disorganization or ignoring your health. But don’t worry, you can get it together. You might want to borrow a Virgo for that.

JANUARY: Four words… Let’s Get It On!

FEBRUARY: That groaning noise you’re hearing is the sound of another exact Uranus-Pluto square. Sorry about that, but hey… at least it’s the last time for the exact aspect. You’ve made it this far, and you’ll carry on. Venus and Mars passing through your Ninth House should give all that higher mind stuff a boost so at least now you can see a purpose to all the hoo-hah you’ve been through in the last couple of years. Yeah, that’s right: I said “hoo-hah.”

MARCH: Saturn goes retrograde, so getting your act together with practical matters may be a little trickier than usual. Mars passing through Aries will see you a little more aggravated than usual too. But hey… you can do this kid!

APRIL: Is it time for a break? Yes. Yes it is. With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all passing through your 11th House, Taurus, it’s time to get out and kick it with your friends. Remember those people? Yeah, there still on your side. And if not: it’s a good time to get some new ones.

Go out and play!

MAY: Venus enters your own Sign, and love is in the air. Well at least, you probably look really good. Enjoy it.

JUNE: Neptune goes retrograde again, but is particularly strong this month. Dream it, believe it, and make it real. And hey: did I mention there’s no more exact Uranus-Pluto squares again? Yeah?

Your Weekly Horoscope, June 23-29, 2014 (Plus Otters!)

posted by Matthew Currie

There is more than the usual dose of the crazy, unhinged, weird and explosive going on this week, thanks in large part to an opposition between Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. So before we get into that, let’s all relax by watching some otters play a keyboard.

YouTube Preview Image

There, feel better? Good. Now… look out! Mars is returning for its final swing at the degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross. Think back to what areas of your life were causing you agitation (and which ones saw forward motion) in the last part of April, and get ready for some of it to come back. Thankfully, this is the last time Mars takes a pass at this point before it moves on to Scorpio in July.

There’s a New Moon on Thursday evening/Friday morning in Cancer, with both Neptune and Pluto involved, so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to make some significant course corrections then. Pay attention to where The Suck happens in your life this week, and that’ll give you a good clue as to what changes are needed. I’ll have details on the New Moon for you closer to the end of the week.

Venus enters Gemini on Tuesday, and since both Venus and Mars are in Air Signs, there’s slightly more than the usual truth to the idea that “you create your own reality” when it comes to your social life and your love life. And that would be great, except of course a social life requires other people, most of whom seem to be too busy creating their own realities without you just fine, thank you very much.

Oh dear, now I’m depressed. Quickly… more otters!

In theory though, Venus in Gemini improves your odds of talking someone into playing along with you, so give that a try.

Now, your forecast:

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take stock of your personal resources throughout the first part of the week, because you’ll probably be  needing them for the weekend, when a lot of loose threads may start to fray.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Cut loose a little. The next week should give you a few more opportunities to be yourself. Plan ahead for a fun weekend, and stay open to opportunities to make peace.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): After a rough start, most of the week should be a relatively comfortable groove. Then: you’re looking good, you’re feeling good, and you know it. Be careful with your money on the weekend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Something is sneaking up on you, and not just your birthday either… seeds are being planted for the next year of your life. Be careful where you sow them.

LEO (July 23-August 22): Ever get the feeling bigger and better things are coming? They are, but this week is mostly emotional damage control and cleanup. Next month is gonna be great though, honest!

VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Why is everyone touching my stuff? Get your own stuff! I want more stuff of my own! You’re not normally that materialistic… but this week might be the exception.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22): Your personal connections might be a little most stressed than usual. Take care of yourself first, okay?

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Yeah, I know… being diplomatic about stuff is kinda boring when you could just shoot someone and get it over with, right? Don’t do that this week: your powers of persuasion will be pretty strong.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): You might have to make some serious re-adjustments in your routines. You’ll have the urge to go hard, but don’t overdo it. Relax.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): It might feel a little like you’re shouldering too much of the load alone, but the good news is that you can take it. Your social life lightens up next week.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): There are plenty of opportunities to treat life lightly and have some fun this week, and you should take advantage of them. The party starts now — and it starts with YOU.

PISCES (February 19-March 20): You know, some days you’re best off just hiding at home… and a large portion of this week is like that. Sometimes you’ve gotta spend time in the nest before you go flying.
