Then Mercury doubles the number of thoughts a few hours later, also joining the realm of the twins. The secret to happiness today will be a selective focus. Decide how you want to feel, and then lean into that, ignoring anything to the ...Read more

The secret to gratitude is to take pleasure in what's there. If you can't seem to, maybe what's there isn't right for you. The gladness of your heart can be discovered, but it can't be forced.

The classic heroic model is to swoop in at the moment of peril and save the day. What is the day being saved? The ordinary day, mostly -- the one filled with work, casual interactions, errands and the like. The trine of Mercury and Saturn points out that small things done with great consistency, kindness and attention are their own kind of ...Read more
First Venus enters Taurus. This comes as a relief. No offense to Venus in Aries, but it did have an edge to it -- a nervy energy that, while exhilarating, takes a lot of energy to maintain. Venus is completely and powerfully at home in Taurus. So when Mars slips uncomfortably into Cancer a little later, we're in a good position to roll with it...Read more
The industrious Virgo moon goes gadfly as it certainly seems to come up with plenty of exciting and antagonizing angles early in the day involving Jupiter, Pluto, the sun, Mars and more. It's a complete relief when the lunar change to Libra takes hold in the later day, settling and soothing the agitation. By bedtime, all will be forgotten.
We don't intend it, but getting a new app sometimes means that robots posing as us will send messages to all of our contacts. Thanks overhelping robots!

With the confrontational lunar square to Uranus and then Mercury, socializing can be scary. It is natural to avoid rejection, but in doing so the best things in life get avoided simultaneously. Life's magic happens not despite the risk of rejection but because of it. Risk is so essential to the story that without facing some kind of stakes, ...Read more

Goals are a solid thing to have, but they are not the end-all-be-all of a successful person, venture or experience. The conjunction of Mercury and Uranus increases the odds of achieving a state of flow.

Most instances of "winging it" are born out of a lack of preparation. There's another more masterful sort of improvisation -- the sort you might see in jazz or comedy crowd work -- that brings consistently excellent and yet unpredictable results. It usually takes years of practice to achieve, though it could just happen during this Gemini moon...Read more
"Never say never" is a saying that speaks to the fickleness of human nature. We often find that the influence of time and environment is stronger than our resolve. Mercury moves into Taurus, the sign of appetite, today, greasing slippery slopes. "Never again" declarations could turn into "just one more time." Anticipate temptation. Plan ...Read more

Mercury and Jupiter form a fire sign trine to favor communication and action. Excellent communication and the right action will yield much better results than anticipated. For communication and action to be superior, they must match the situation. There is no one-size-fits-all move. Good observing can do what strength and cunning cannot.
