The new, more efficient way of doing things won't seem, at first, to be efficient at all. For a while it will take more time, money and energy than the old way... in other words, the opposite of efficiency. But in the long run, the time, money and energy saved will be far greater. Bear with the transition marked by these first Venus retrograde...Read more
There's a way to interact with people without necessarily agreeing with them, belonging to their clubs, subscribing to their ideologies and the like. It's called tolerance. It's what the world needs more of, and not so hard to come by now either. The Leo moon rules the heart, which is where courage lives. Don't be afraid of every little way we...Read more
The story changes the experience. If the experience isn't what you want it to be, maybe there are actions that could alter it, moving things in the environment, using different people, cutting ties, making new deals... but before you go drastic, the entertaining Leo moon suggests you change your story about it and go from there.

Something is going to change. It has to. Now the smart thing to do is to accept that a trade-off will be made, and to look at what's being exchanged. The more tempting thing to do will be to look away and let everything sort itself out. And it will, no doubt. But if you're able to involve yourself, you'll have an advantage going forward.
It takes guts to go first. That's why those who go first have an advantage. Their courage earns them an edge. First can be tricky, too, with no examples to tuck within or hide behind. As the moon goes home to Cancer and Mercury mixes it up with Pluto, it's a good time to calculate the risks of going first. It might be worth it.

"What is the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?" asked Henry David Thoreau. Most people know there is something they are doing on a regular basis that needs to be adjusted for the good of all who share life on this blue marble. But who will do it? Pluto goes direct to ask, Who will take initiative, own the ...Read more
Cover-ups take a lot of energy. They cause tension, probably needlessly. People who are not trying to conceal their flaws are more comfortable and much more attractive, too. The lucky lunar position to Mars and the sun begs the question: What if the thing you thought of as a deficit is actually just a feature you've yet to put to good use?
The moon in Taurus, the sign of appetites, gets mischievous today, first with Neptune, then Pluto and finally Jupiter. So don't be surprise if your cravings can't be sated, your itches go unscratched or your desires turn fickle on you. It almost goes without saying that it's not a good time to throw money at your hunger, as it will certainly ...Read more
It is practically impossible to perceive yourself accurately from the inside out. The view from the inside will always be distorted. We need other people to act as our mirrors. All things being equal, why not tend toward those friends whose reflection of you will be flattering? They won't be hard to find as the sun and Mars form a social trine...Read more
The glass, which is either half-full or half-empty, is causing an existential question that wouldn't arise in a circumstance where the glass is the right size for the amount of liquid to be contained. To think of efficiency in the early stages of an endeavor will prevent problems and keep a productive focus during this lunar square to Pluto.
Many people will decide to play host on a holiday or when they have a reason to celebrate, but it takes a special thought process to host for the sheer enjoyment of being with your favorite people. There's no better reason! The early stages of this Libra sun make for an ideal time to call a few friends and put together a plan for the weekend. ...Read more
This full moon in Aries, being the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox, is the harvest moon. In some skies at certain hours, it will appear large and orange, as if pregnant with mystic powers and promises. The theme here is abundance, which can sometimes occur without provocation but more typically is the outcome of hard work.

There are things that need to get done and things that could be done. Oddly, we can gravitate toward the latter even though the former is obviously more important. It has to do with the pleasantness of a task and the amount of willpower it takes to prioritize. Willpower is still in good supply, but tomorrow it goes out the ...Read more
The autumnal equinox has been celebrated through the ages as a time to give thanks for all we have and entreat the powers that be to favor us with abundance in the months to come. The sun moves into Libra, the sign of art, partnership, beauty and justice. May all the karma of your benevolent deeds come swiftly around.

It's human nature to believe oneself to be at the center of the universe, as it should be. If each person weren't charged with their own survival, the human race could not have lasted this long. That said, on this eve of the autumnal equinox, your survival is assured so you can happily focus the best of your attention on loved ones.

The sun and Mercury are conjunct in Virgo today, one of the signs in which Mercury feels most at home. It's a chance to talk truth and be heard with crystal clarity. But just because you see, know and can speak the truth doesn't always mean that you should. Ask first who will benefit, who will be hurt and whether the exchange is necessary or ...Read more
The lunar influence suggests a day of two tones. Morning energy will support acting responsibly, paying respect, making nice noises to all the powers that be, duty, diligence and protocol. Evening energy will support socializing, whimsy, helping others, technological tinkering and highbrow humor.

Today is an effect of our past and yet maybe we wouldn't have predicted it. Today is the cause of our future, though we can't tell how. The cosmic conundrums come to mind courtesy of a conflict between Mars and Uranus. Accuracy in forecasting requires us to remove bias, dash assumptions and think as clearly as possible.

Getting older requires resilience and adaptation. This is as true at age 4 as it is at age 54. If you cannot (or, for some reason, just don't want to) do it the same way as you did it before, congratulations. You're maturing. It's something to embrace and celebrate at every age. This message comes via the maturing influence of the Capricorn ...Read more
