One of the fun things you can do when Mercury is retrograde is to go through your Rolodex (how quaint) and REconnect with people you have not seen in months, years, decades….
Try it and let me know what happens.
Writing this during a long Moon void in information-junkie Gemini. The Moon won’t get into gear until 9:56AM ET, when it enters Cancer. That’s when any feelings of “meh” may lift…and the double potential for twists in your efforts to move forward in a straight line may end. Huzzah!
There are no exact aspects today. A Cancer Moon seeks emotional and home(land) security, so projects involving nurturing, Mom, home and patriotism are favored. Do things that show you really care….or make you feel cared for.
Humming in the background is an approaching face-off between Venus in Cancer and ruthless Pluto in Capricorn. That’s exact tomorrow. Hard aspects between Venus and Pluto suggest witchy-bitchy women, or power plays and other deep happenings involving the feminine, money, aesthetics, social expression. Here’s what happened the last time we had this pattern. Use it as a guide for anticipating what we can expect this week…and for understanding what we’re already seeing, like this piece about a bill to grant women in the military greater access to contraceptives. There it is on the home page of the NYT — empowering Venus-Pluto stuff.
So the other week I was talking about some of my favorite maxims, and apparently they were well-received. Would you like some more?
OK, here’s one — for those of you who feel you are involved in a Challenging Relationship Situation: “If you want to know where you’re at, look at who you’re with”.
The corollary is this: “You have to be willing to give up what you do not want.”
Ahhhhh….that last one is oh-so-appropriate for days when Venus and Pluto are especially supercharged…
Food for thought until next time…and meanwhile, if you’d like to discuss your relationship situation from an objective, helpful astro-logical perspective, here’s the 411 on personal consultations (via the preceding link).
