Ask Phyllis...Astrology And Beyond: Election Astrology and Pundit Passion

Dear Phyllis,

Is anything important happening astrologically this week?
-Antsy Voter

Dear Fellow Patriot,

Of course there is...we're having an election! That kind of things doesn't happen without the accompaniment of significant planetary power.

And there's unusually strong planetary power for this election.

An extremely rare "shake up" energy is igniting immediate shifts in our circumstances. This constellation (known as revolutionary Uranus opposing status-quo Saturn) guarantees major, far reaching changes.

This configuration usually signals both surprises and a revolution. It's likely we'll experience very different changes than the ones we anticipate. One thing is for sure: The status quo is out the window.

Many will experience surprising shifts in their personal lives as well. Unexpected gains are likely as well as possible losses.

In short, a bit of upheaval can ensue. Do yourself a favor and look for the silver lining in whatever goes on. Brilliant opportunities can be made out of eve the weirdest of events. Planetary energies are offering positive liberation, if one is willing to be free.

That said, it would be a good idea to take extra care on the 3rd and 4th as misunderstandings and deceptions can easily take hold. So don't assume - check things out.

Dear Phyllis,

I've really enjoyed watching the intelligent newsman Keith Obermann. Will there be enough happening after the election to keep him from getting bored?
-A fan

You betcha! Keith is an Aquarius with a Virgo moon. That makes him as bright as can be with a drive to contribute to his community. Since lucky Jupiter transits Aquarius in 2009, I'm sure Keith will have plenty of opportunities to keep his life rewarding. Plus, his love life looks good, too.

Same upswing forecast goes for his fellow Aquarian Sarah Palin. Life will never be the same for her, even if she does go home to Alaska.
