Look to the Moon in Taurus, which needs to build and preserve security and stability, to bring a calmer vibe to the next couple of days. This is your chance to give form to the ideas and projects you have on your plate. Be productive!
Mercury, ruling mind, communication and travel shifts from opinionated Sagittarius into practical, make-it-happen Capricorn for the next few weeks. This could also bring those inclined to high-flying and/or exaggerated opinions back down to earth — though it may take a day for us to adjust to this shift in communications and thought.
Meanwhile, in Arizona, thousands were cheered by the news that Gabrielle Giffords opened her eyes for the first time since Saturday. President Obama announced the news, saying, “”She knows we’re here, and she knows we love her.”
Given that Giffords has Moon in Leo, a placement suggesting a strong need to be loved and adored, this struck me as a particularly fitting — and potentially healing — public announcement. All week I’ve been thinking of writing that if you happen to believe that thoughts can influence others who are thousands of miles away, it couldn’t hurt to send a loving message to Gabrielle Giffords. And if you’re personally involved with someone who has Moon in Leo — you now have a piece of information you can use to keep that relationship flowing smoothly : )
