(Finally — a practical astrology forecast that EVERYONE can use, regardless of their Sign! Make sure you bookmark this page and come back — it could be the most useful thing I’ve written all month!)

Below is a listing for Void Of Course (VOC) Moon times and dates for the month of November (If you’re unfamiliar with how useful the VOC Moon concept is, click here for more information). During the times listed, it is best to avoid starting or finishing any major projects or making important decisions. Make sure you print this off and keep a copy on you at all times while at work, because nothing impresses your boss like using Astrology to maximize your results, and it’s always handy to have the Void Moon as an excuse for slacking off. It’s like a permission slip from your astrologer! Of course, if you get caught goofing off when the Moon ISN’T Void… you’re on your own, and if anyone asks, I don’t even know you.

February is relatively free of those ridiculous day-long Voids that suck you down and hold you there like a polar vortex made of inertia instead of cold air. However, it’s worth noting that the Moon will be Void of Course for the duration of the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2nd. This could lead to some unexpected consequences, delays, or peculiar calls… so don’t blame me if you lose your bet. I tried to warn you.

That’s No New Moon In Aquarius… It’s A Space Station!

posted by Matthew Currie

Death Star(Apologies to everyone out there who isn’t a Star Wars fan. You may need to find one and ask him or her to explain this forecast to you.)

This Thursday sees a New Moon in Aquarius. New Moons are subtle but powerful things: not nearly as obvious or dramatic as a Full Moon, but if you’re willing to work with it, a New Moon can be the most powerful time of the month… a time when you can sit down and make demands of both The Universe and yourself and actually —  miracle of miracles! — stand a chance of getting some real, tangible results.

You’ve got to do the work though, and this month the conditions are right for some real breakthroughs.

The Uranus-Pluto square has been causing havoc for a good couple of years now, both with the world in general and on an individual level. One of the problems with a square is that it’s like two planets arguing with no chance of a tie-breaker. Any time a third planet positively aspects one of the squaring planets, it does little or nothing for the other planet in the square. Looking to the planets to break an impasse like that requires a fourth planet, and this month we have that, with one to spare.

The Sun and Moon conjunction in Aquarius is closely sextile the Uranus side of the Uranus-Pluto square. What this means that the Battle Of The Square is now tipped in favor of Uranus (liberty, individuality, and doing your own thing). Meanwhile, Pluto (absolutes, control, and fear) is softened by a conjunction with Venus and an opposition from Jupiter.

So: have you felt for a couple of years like like circumstances have held you back? Have you struggled against forces, either external or internal, that have oppressed you? Has it felt like an entire Galactic Empire has been against you? Thursday is the day to act. Make a plan. Heck, you don’t need much of one, even… just the willingness to say “I want this to change, and I’m going to do what it takes” and you can get results.

Now, it may involve something really crazy, like addressing how you’ve been an unwitting accomplice to the things holding you back, or facing up to things about your loved ones you don’t want to admit to yourself, or maybe… who knows? Sending in a one-man fighter up against a gigantic battle station? The truth is: most of the seemingly big problems in life can be solved with the right action at the right time, and most of Life’s Big Issues have a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port, with a shaft that leads directly to the reactor system.

Okay, I’ll stop it with the geeky stuff now. My point here is that you’ve got to make your move this month. And it begins Thursday by setting the intention. Then trust your instincts. Use the Force, already, jeez!

Now, some specifics:

If you were born September 1940-April 1941: Now is the time to take charge of your circumstances. Be firm in who you are and what you believe.

If you were born February-July 1952: The tensions are reaching their peak. Be brave and brace yourself for the Final Challenge. Save your resources and take a structured approach.

If you were born January-June 1977: Unique opportunities are coming your way, provided you are not afraid to take the leap. It’s a good time to lay down a long-term strategy.

If you were born December 1980-March 1981 or August-September 1981: The challenges to your happiness and sanity may be piling up, but a change in direction and a little bravery will make a huge difference.

If you are Justin Bieber: This New Moon is square your Jupiter.Legal consequences will be harsher than anticipated this month. Do whatever you can to put off that court date until at least March… and get a grip on yourself, already.

If you are Kanye West: This New Moon is trine you Pluto while Uranus is opposite it. Sorry, looks like all the news this month will be about your offspring, not you. Also: since that New Moon is happening in your 8th House, don’t get caught anywhere with your pants off except at home, okay…?

An Open Letter From Venus About That Mess Of A Love Life Of Yours

posted by Matthew Currie
beliefnet astrology matthew currie venus

“Okay, the butt’s better, but now I don’t like the cheekbones. Let’s try the Titian again…”

My Lovelies:

I thought I’d drop you a friendly line about my numerous concerns for your well-being — not that I am overwhelmed with worries, sweeties, because worrying too much is The Moon’s job.  As you know, I’m retrograde right now, so you may have noticed the old flames cropping up a bit more, and your thoughts and concerns and regrets about your love life may be bothering you a bit more than usual. That will be settling down soon, though: I’m approaching the station and will be going forward at the end of the month. That is, of course… unless you don’t do something about it.

This would be so much more comfortable for us if it weren’t for Jupiter and Pluto. Being conjunct Pluto isn’t the most comfortable place for anyone (let alone ME!) to be, but it can certainly be therapeutic. Pluto gives us a chance to make revolutionary changes when they’re needed, gives us the strength to endure the unendurable, and generally toughens things up. And let’s be honest with ourselves, Darlings: I’m good at my job, but “toughening up” is NOT my job. So, special thanks to Pluto. You’re a dear, even if you are “The Lord Of The Underworld.”

As for my dear friend Jupiter? Normally when we get together we have a wonderful time. But when we’re opposed like this, it’s like between the two of us we’ve emptied the buffet table of emotions, yet everyone walks away feeling empty. And believe me… Jupiter in Cancer knows how to work a buffet table.

You all have some really unique and wonderful opportunities ahead of you in the next few days when it comes to your love lives. If you’ve been moping over a lost relationship, now is the time you should be able to figure out how to either get it back, or to get rid of it for good, or to just get over it or past it somehow. Which course of action you take is up to you, of course.

But please, darlings… get off your butt and do something about that love life of yours. The time is right, and it’s much more up to you than it is to me. I can’t help you all by myself… I’m much too busy with lying around looking good all day long.

Kisses,
V

PS: Speaking of old flames cropping up… Mars, I know you’re in “the relationship Sign” now, but if you don’t stop calling me all night long I’m going to have to get a restraining order. Cut it out!

Ask An Astrologer: Winning The Lottery

posted by Matthew Currie
beliefnet matthew currie astrology win the lottery

It’s THAT easy!

 

CR asks: Can you pick a time and date for me so I win at the lottery?

Answer: Yes, and the answer is “nope.” A better question might be “can you tell me a time when I’m more likely to win the lottery?“… in which case, the answer would be “yes, absolutely, but so what?

Let me explain. Astrology is able to predict a lot of things in advance, including times of both “good fortune” (in the “life is good” sense) and “good fortune” (in the “more likely to win the lottery” sense). Armed with the correct knowledge of astrological techniques and your date, time and place of birth, an astrologer could in fact significantly improve your odds of winning at the lottery. I’ve done some digging into this myself, and so have others, with some very interesting results that tend to back that very contention.

In part, it boils down to the placement of Jupiter and Uranus in your birth chart. Jupiter is generally considered to be the planet that rules “luck,” and Uranus is the ruler of “freaky circumstances.” Furthermore, the location of Uranus at the time of the win is important. So, right there we know that the probability of any one birth chart (that is, person) winning at the lottery is pretty slim. Second, one must wait for the right time to play.

But: here’s the real problem. A typical lottery ticket has about a one in fourteen million chance of winning. Yes, if you buy a hundred lottery tickets, your odds are much better… but still not very good. Think of it this way: the average healthy adult breathes about 12 times per minute, which works out to 17,2780 breaths per day. If you bought a lottery ticket every time you inhale, it would take you about 27 months to buy 14 million lottery tickets… 13,983,816 to get every possible combination for a 6 numbers from 1 to 49 lottery. Because lotteries are run by people who have studied the Dark Art of Mathematics, that lottery is likely to have a prize significantly smaller than the nearly fourteen million bucks you spent on the tickets. Either that or (more likely) the prize will be a function of the total money spent by both you and other players, so you’ll likely end up splitting the prize with someone else who picked the right combination too… and that prize money will partly be your own money you spent on the tickets in the first place.

Let’s say that an astrologer can improve your chances of winning tenfold… which I for one don’t think is at all unreasonable. It’s certainly better than the odds of getting The James Randi Educational Foundation to accept the Ten Dollar Challenge to defend their phony-baloney anti-astrology e-book (prove me wrong JREF!). But it’s still not really good enough.

Put another way: lots of casinos have gone out of business because of mismanagement (I’m looking at you, Donald Trump), but how many have ever gone out of business simply because they paid out too much in prize money? And come to think of it, with the very Laws Of Probability on your side, how the heck do you bankrupt a casino anyway? Clearly there are still many mysteries to how the Universe operates, like the mechanism by which astrology works… or the fact that Donald Trump has a reputation for being a business genius. Go figure.

So, sure: if you’ve worked out your transits properly, and you’ve got the cash to spare, go ahead and buy a lottery ticket if you like. Doing the math in advance will improve you chances of winning, but really… doing the math in advance should keep you from hoping for too much from it in the first place.

However,  if what you want is help and timing for your love life, advice about handling your mate or career guidance or advice about your education or health or home… those are things I can help you with, gladly.

PS: Your Lucky Numbers today are: √-1, π, and 23.
