Focus on your nearest and dearest today, and don’t hesitate to show your loyalty. While it’s good to show your support, be careful not to interfere unnecessarily in someone else’s life.
About the Number 6
General Meaning: Be on guard for careless or rebellious attitudes characteristic of youthful inexperience. Just as a youth requires instruction, this is a good time to focus on learning your lessons from a patient teacher or life experience. Is there some circumstance in your life that you failed to comprehend, perhaps because you could not appreciate its inherent complexities? Be respectful of anything or anyone who has something to teach you right now.
In order to be prepared for challenges, let education be a part of your life. Continually develop the strong mind and will necessary to carry you through confusing times. The wise realize that experience is a powerful teacher, even though we cannot be forced to learn, even from experience. Be a good student, one who delights in learning, one who nourishes his or her expanding awareness, one who is paying attention!
Examine your attitude for factors that limit your openness. Observe how you deal with the mistakes of others. You must let people live their own lives and learn their own lessons. Offer others your wisdom or advice, but only if the other person is receptive (when in doubt, ask). Otherwise, give up trying to convince him or her that you are right, which is only exhausting and counter-productive. If people are not receptive, let them go their own way — even into difficulty or dangerous circumstances. It is the only way they can learn right now — and without learning, no one can achieve success. This does not mean that you should not care — just that taking care of someone too much can be harmful. Live and let learn.
|Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Gebo means gift, and like any gifts, the rune may be understood on many levels. Gifts are generally positive things, for both the giver and the recipient. In many cultures however, gifts and favors carry with them an obligation to respond in kind. It is for this reason that gifts, and hence the rune Gebo, are frequently symbolic of friendships, marriages, alliances, mergers, and other bonds between people or organizations. Gebo is a strong rune and the unions represented are strong as well. Moreover, Gebo is not reversible, as true friendships are not easily undone.|

Every one of us will occupy all the points on the wheel at some time or another. The cycle of the wheel is its lesson — and we can learn to take comfort in it (as we do when we celebrate our birthday). If you don’t like the look of things right now, just wait — things will change. Of course, if you do like the look of things right now, enjoy it while it lasts, because that will change too!
The good news right now is that there is less intensity happening in the psychic atmosphere today than yesterday. However, some of the havoc created on Monday – via the Mars-Uranus and Mercury-Jupiter clashes – still remains in effect. Meanwhile, the Moon in Cancer is your celestial reminder to deal with residential chores like making the kitchen and bath areas shine again, sprucing up the living room or conducting major clean-up campaigns. Cooking and baking are highlighted. Experimenting with soups, chowders and seafood dishes hits the spot. After the Moon creates some consternation by opposing Pluto (4:35AM PDT), the lunar orb is a favorable influence by forming a supportive, 60-degree alliance with giant Jupiter (7:33AM PDT), and making flowing trines to Mercury (10:31AM PDT) and Venus (6:01PM PDT). The major challenging planetary conflict comes from Mars forming an off-kilter, 150-degree link to Ceres (12:11PM PDT). Be extra sensitive and kind to maternal figures, children and pets. Becoming angry over a trifle is taboo. A wave of nostalgia can easily rise to the surface tonight under the Cancer Moon vibrations which often summon the past and historical events with ease. A Mercury-Venus parallel (9:57PM PDT) can also be a signal that all is well on the friendship and romantic fronts since both of these celestial bodies are in passion-centered Scorpio.
You might think that remaining quiet is a sensible strategy today, but you won’t likely avoid conflict by relying on defensive maneuvers. It’s tempting to believe that you’ll keep your feelings to yourself, but unexpressed emotions have a way of hijacking your day. It’s no fun to lose your temper, so get your concerns out into the open instead of naively assuming that things will improve on their own.
Communicating with others seems so easy today that you may think that you’re missing something. Unfortunately, you are probably glossing over a critical fact or conveniently forgetting what you were told. Thankfully, you can choose to focus extra attention on the details of your interactions. The simple act of concentrating on the present moment, instead of letting your mind wander, can help prevent an unnecessary misunderstanding.
Your ruling planet Mercury is wired by electric Uranus today, exciting your nervous system and lifting your spirits. Unconventional ideas can be distracting because they aren’t necessarily practical, and you may not be interested in applying your creativity now because you don’t want to slow down your unrestrained thinking process. Although facing the limitations of your current circumstances might not sound great at first, putting your feet back on the ground will make you feel better in the long run.
You would like to talk about your feelings now that the Moon is back in your sign, even if you’re also feeling a bit shy. Nevertheless, you won’t likely go out of your way to bring up an issue that could provoke someone to withdraw from you. However, once you understand that your fear of abandonment can precipitate exactly what you’re trying to avoid, it will be easier to acknowledge the intense emotions that are being revealed at this time.
Don’t trust others who promise you the world because they may not be telling you the whole story now that the Moon is in your secretive 12th house. It might be wiser for you to take care of business as if you were on your own today, even if someone offers to help you. Nevertheless, it’s safe to listen to those who are supportive of your cause, even if they don’t have easy answers. Ultimately, having faith in yourself is your best strategy.
Your key planet Mercury connects with brilliant Uranus today, sparking your imagination with unconventional thoughts and intense desires. However, you might play your hand tentatively because you don’t want to upset your friends or destabilize an existing relationship. Still, it may be impossible to avoid a confrontation if someone oversteps your boundaries. Do whatever you must do in order to protect your territory as long as you don’t intentionally hurt anyone else in the process.
Your need to nurture others at work can make you feel indispensable today with the Moon’s presence in your 10th House of Public Responsibility. However, meddling in other people’s affairs can also create a real mess if you go too far. Don’t fall into the trap of believing that no one can get along without your assistance now. It’s healthier to wait until someone asks you for help before jumping in and taking over.
You are tenaciously holding on to a fascinating idea today, even if it isn’t very practical. You may not have time now to seriously develop your plan, yet you still can derive pleasure from just thinking about the possibilities. Keep in mind that you could turn a rather simple desire into such a big deal that the original thought is lost. Give yourself permission to dream, but don’t lose perspective on what’s real and what’s not.
Mischievous Mercury can trick you into thinking that your new idea is a brilliant one, but you should probably keep your thoughts to yourself today until you decide how much to share with others. You could spoil your chances for success by telling someone about your plan before the details are actually in place. Although you often can get away with developing your strategy on the fly, being more cautious now works in your favor.
You are usually more self-restrained than others in your group, but today all bets are off. It’s not that your energy is out of control now; it’s just that you are aligned with a higher purpose, adding intensity to your words and actions. Thankfully, your friends and co-workers are eager to listen to you unfold your strategy, so tell them exactly what you’re thinking, even if you aren’t sure how all the pieces will ultimately fit together.
You aren’t very comfortable when so many images and ideas are swirling around in your brain that you don’t know what to do next. Mercury’s alignment with your key planet Uranus can amuse you with all the possibilities, but you still grow dizzy watching the mental fireworks. Instead of passively dreaming about your future, concentrate your attention on a single goal and maintain your focus until it is within reach.
Although you may appear quietly confident today, you might not have that much to say yet. You’re riding a wave of creativity with the Moon visiting your 5th House of Self-Expression, but the real action is taking place within your mind and out of sight from everyone’s watchful gaze. Don’t feel obliged to prove your brilliance to anyone now; just gently express what’s most important to you once you’re comfortable with the results of your inner process.
