If you spend enough time with people who don't laugh, you may start to think you're not funny.

Because of the placement of human eyeballs, it is impossible to see too much of oneself. Before the invention of mirrors, we saw even less. The reflection most helpful today will be spiritual. The best optical assistance you can receive will detect emotions and come from the third eye of a kindred spirit or the sensors of a loved one's heart. ...Read more

With the square of Mars and Pluto will come, for many, the most daunting part of a project -- the start. So many considerations and ideas will fill the ether. Try not to be paralyzed by potential. Write it all down. You can always come back later when your eyes have been opened wide by experience. This is more of a day to squint and jump.
The intellectual Aquarius moon would like to remind us that the stories in our heads have much more to do with our happiness than anything that's really going on. It's not hard to consciously change the story, but don't be surprised if your subconscious takes a while to catch up. New narratives have to be retold many times before they become ...Read more

In this realm, she's a translator, a concierge and an ambassador whose work and pleasure is to assist in the communion of souls, embodied and not.
Spiders and bats are much smaller than the screaming humans who encounter them, not so much afraid of being overcome but of being surprised. What's scarier than the actual monster?

As Mercury and Venus do their pas de deux in Scorpio, consider two locations -- the virtual reality of the mind and the kingdom that is the body you were born to. To be lost in thought is to be disembodied, and to be lost in motion is to leave a certain kind of thinking in the clouds. Stars favor those who seek a blend of citizenships.
