Improvement has been the theme of this solar journey in Virgo, and its implications will be even farther reaching once Mercury joins the sun in this part of the sky. It's important to remember that everyone's best looks different. Those who are comfortable with the ways in which they veer from the norm, seeing these differences not as ...Read more
Although it's important to see people in action in order to know who they really are, you should also note that most people perform better when the action is exciting. At this point in the solar journey, life is a bring-your-own-excitement type of invite. The people who are a delight when there's not much going on -- those are the ones to keep...Read more
There is nothing that can live in constant chaos. Order is beauty, and beauty is order. Practicality makes life happen predictably, and this is a good and necessary aspect of existence. The Virgo sun urges practical action that moves things forward, that is elegant and right, while Mars direct warns against practical action taken out of fear. ...Read more
The direct motion of Mars is in full swing, and for most of the day the warrior moon in Aries will rally behind the assertive (or perhaps aggressive) energy of the red planet. People who don't know their own strength usually find out when what they thought was a casual gesture has unexpectedly large repercussions.

An invigorating Aries moon lends energy to the long list of work items conjured up by the solar sojourn. So much of the work seems redundant and futile, as it will only have to be repeated tomorrow and the next day. It is our awareness of this, combined with a willingness to do it anyway and to the best of our ability, that makes the work ...Read more
No one feels remorse in the moment that causes it. It's a time-dependent emotion. Avoiding remorse requires an awareness that stretches into the future. Mercury and Jupiter are unfortunately angled today, making it tempting to say and do regrettable things. Think ahead. Take a careful approach.

The warrior planet straightens out his course, and the direct motion of the weeks and months to come signifies a rather logical and straightforward path to success. The equation is simple. Put in the work. Exchange the proper sorts of resources and energy to net what you desire. Everything we want has its cost. Find out what it is and pay it. ...Read more
"Until the lion has an historian, the hunter will always be a hero," says the African proverb. Perhaps no one can tell a totally unbiased story, but those who at least try for a level of justice and fairness will be favored under the full moon in empathetic Pisces. Much good will come of trying to see and feel the world as others do.

Sadly, the most important message in the world might be missed if it comes via a source that people do not want to listen to. Take this into consideration and today's double solar trines will be twice as lucky for you. When you have something important to impart, frame it in the best way, and give it to a messenger who commands respect.
These early days of the Virgo sun favor improvement. It all starts with what we give our attention to. It has more to do with where we are and our role in it than it does with any kind of internal fortitude. To control where our attention flows, we need to change the environment. It's far easier than willing ourselves to behave differently ...Read more
A person is not just a person. A person is also part of a story. When you touch lives, teach what you know or help others to have experiences they otherwise might not, you are making the story richer and more epic. Under the social Aquarius moon, involve others, even when you don't have to, even when it's actually extra work for you to do so. ...Read more
Babe Ruth said that every strike brought him closer to a home run. Of course, he was committed to learning from strikes. Others have been similarly inclined with the sun's journey across all the bases of its Leo home. A commitment to learning is more important than a commitment to winning. No one controls the win, but learning improves the ...Read more
Today's social stars come with a feeling similar to being stuck in an elevator of strangers with whom you have seemingly nothing in common. But by asking a few key questions, you'll find out that you are much more alike than you might have guessed, and in fact are "trapped" with the ideal group. Make it count before things start moving again. ...Read more
Most of baking is about simple ingredients -- salt, flour and water. But it's how you blend them together that makes all of the difference between, say, a biscuit and a pie crust. Today's tasks may seem to involve unremarkable efforts and resources, but a different approach will yield a much different result. Mercury, now direct, favors a ...Read more
The idea that animals can predict earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and the like has gained a level of acceptance among scientists. When animals behave out of character, they have their reasons. Humans are typically less predictive, but at least the direct turn of Mercury should lend some instinctual intelligence worth heeding today.

All things come to an end -- good, bad and otherwise. The Mercury retrograde hasn't lived up to its experience as a negative omen, and anyway, it's coming to a close. What is your takeaway from these last few weeks? Do you feel you can communicate better or worse with your loved ones? Do you feel better or worse off for the mishaps?

Conversations may have a deja vu quality in these last days of Mercury retrograde. Well, maybe the topics are worn and the news is rehashed, but new understandings can still be reached. Keep in mind that most people have to hear the same story numerous times before they decide to try and understand or accept it.

Trouble is a normal part of daily life. Without it, our stories would be very boring indeed. Many expedient, capable people will move quickly through trouble and onto fixing the problem -- not the correct order! Stop and give yourself care and comfort first. Skipping steps under the Scorpio moon is not advised. Shortcuts will actually take ...Read more
The Libra moon reminds us that there is a delicate balance that must be struck in order to keep relationships going strong. With too light a touch, the relationship turns into acquaintanceship. Too heavy an approach is repellant, as people will worry about getting swallowed up in a serious connection. Strike a balance.

There are days when your mind is a waffle, with little compartments ready to accept sweet bits of information and keep them separate from each other. But today, you're much more spaghetti-like mentally, and the information will mix and mingle accordingly. The Libra moon favors the outcome of this integrated approach to life.
