The action you witness doesn't always tell the whole story, but it's better than other versions. Talking about an action is never quite as convincing as just seeing it go down. It's pretty hard to argue with what's actually happening as Mars and Neptune aligning give some clarity to matters. Believe half of what you see and none of what you ...Read more
This impressionable Pisces moon recalls the conformist tendency of most humans. We match our surroundings. This is why it's impossible to tell how good a person is when he or she is among the moral and just. The true test of character is a person's behavior when given power and surrounded by immorality and opportunity.

Yes, it's important that you complete some things... but not everything. This is the moon of moving on. There are better uses of your time than finishing just for the sake of finishing.

We appreciate best what we know can be ...Read more
This overlapping of the sun and Venus are like a Venn diagram clarifying where are the overlapping interests of "self-care" and "other-care."

Some of what you do to help others will not help you at all, or it will come as a ...Read more

A total of four squared aspects provide the day with the sort of tension that makes for a heated, competitive game. This cosmic four-square game will follow similar rules to its playground equivalent in that no player will be allowed to let the ball bounce more than once in his or her own square. Whatever action flares up, handle it and return...Read more
The sages say that the path is the way. But if this were always the case, why were off-road vehicles created? And what about when the path was made by hippos or bears? Each path comes with its own set of considerations. Lunar oppositions and trines play into the indecision of the Libran moon. The logical choice may not be the safe choice.

Leave your assumptions at home. Not everyone got the memo, and out of the number who did get it, half never read said memo because it is practically guaranteed to be long, complicated and boring.
