We hate to close up show early but……

As some of you probably remember, I had a major disaster in one of my bathrooms. I had a contractor that was suppose to do the work. But due to the flooding in our area, he backed out on me at the last minute. He wanted to get rich quick on FEMA money.

Today, everything has come together so quickly my head is spinning. I have a new contractor and he is going to start work tomorrow. So I have to run the insurance check to the bank. I also have to pick out new vinyl tile and a new vanity for the bathroom. It has to be here by Sunday. So I have to get my happy little rump up and get busy. I would pretend to bitch but who would I be kidding, lol! I love to shop. I hadn’t had a chance to actually do it and enjoy doing it for quite some time (having to watch every dime I spend). I swear I won’t go crazy but I will definitely enjoy this spending spree.

 

Wish me good luck and happy shopping and we are off!

Till tomorrow…..

Love ya,

Lady A

Shuffling the Cards, Your Past, Present & Future Reading for Today

 

Past Influence whose impact on your life is waning.

The Hourglass

The Hourglass is a gentle reminder that time passes and with it goes opportunity. Every moment is a moment we cannot retrieve or relive, and there are no guarantees that what we put off today really can be done tomorrow. The Hourglass urges us to make every second of our lives as rich and fulfilling as we possibly can.

 

 

 

 

Present Influence whose impact on your life is very strong.

Wisdom

A very very few of us are fortunate to be born wise. For most of us our Wisdom evolves, grows as we move through life gathering experience and knowledge. Wisdom denotes your thoughts and feelings derived from the melding of your life experiences with all that you have learned. Our Wisdom can get us through the difficult moments in our lives as well as provide the mental and spiritual tools we need to succeed

 

 

 

Future influence whose impact on your life is growing and will be very strong in the future.

Solitude

Solitude is represented by a single person standing at the end of a boardwalk staring out at a vast, empty panorama. They are truly alone, but may not feel loneliness. They are at a place in their life where the need to withdraw from the our secular world is strong, because their focus should be on their inner self, their morality, and their dreams. The view before them is empty, but it is a canvas on which they may paint their future–a future restricted only by the size of their imagination and courage. For them Solitude is a choice. They chose to take the walkway that distances them from the rest of us. It is also a choice that can be undone. Just as they chose to take a path that leads them away from us, they may choose to turn around and come back at anytime.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for July 24th is The Golden Egg

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Golden Egg

As a daily card, The Golden Egg suggest that the prospects for you to increase your financial wealth are very strong today. Seize whatever opportunities come your way, but don’t ride them too long or you may find yourself no better off than you were before they came along.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for July 24 is The Empress

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Empress



The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

Daily I Ching Hexagram for July 24th is 40: Deliverance

 

Hexagram of the Day

40: Deliverance


July 24th, 2015
hexagram09

After a thunderstorm, or any period of extreme tension, a period of new clarity and fresh opportunity follows. The storm has the effect of clearing the air and suddenly reducing atmospheric tension. Deliverance is at hand. In the wake of a storm on land, deliverance appears in the form of new color and life, which bursts forth in all the fields and flowers. In the wake of a storm at sea, deliverance takes the form of land itself.

In the field of human relations, the rain of forgiveness washes the human landscape clean after a period of conflict and enmity. Great clarity of purpose and renewed vigor can follow the healing of old wounds. But care must be taken not to re-open such wounds by moving too quickly. In the same way, it is important to return to normalcy before moving ahead with new plans after periods of stress.

Following the resolution of a difficult situation, your first priority, should be to return to normal conditions as quickly as possible. Breathe a sigh of relief, but don’t relax completely. It would be a mistake to re-awaken the sleeping dogs of the immediate past before the new situation has crystallized. Look ahead. Attend to any residual matters that need resolution, and do so as quickly as possible. Make a clean sweep of the past, move deliberately and the future will bring good fortune.

Your Daily Rune for July 24th is Jera

Your Rune for Today

Jera

era denotes positive, recurring cycles, fertility and a time to harvest rewards from your hard work.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Jera

 

jera : year, harvest

 

Phonetic equivalent: y (but may be used in place of ‘j’)

 

DIVINATORY MEANINGS: change, cycle turning, reward, motion, productivity, inevitable development

 

MAGICAL USES: to bring change; for fertility and growth

 

ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: Sif, Thor, Freyr, Granni

 

ANALYSIS: In this modern age of central heating and oranges in February, it is difficult to imagine the close ties that people once had with the cycles of the year, particularly in the more Northern climes. The changing seasons affected not only the weather, but also the day to day activities and even the diets of ancient peoples. Constant change was the norm, and the object was to become attuned with those changes, not to fight against them. An ancient farmer (or even some modern ones) wouldn’t need to look at a calendar to tell him when to plant, or read a weather forecast to know when the snows were coming. The changing seasons were a part of his blood and bones, and his very existence depended on adapting to change.
Jera follows isa just as spring follows winter. The frozen stagnancy of ice is broken by the turning of the wheel, and things are once again moving along as they should. In fact, we have now broken out of the entire set ‘negative’ runes with which we began this aett. This has been accomplished not by fighting to escape the ice or railing against the unfairness of fate, but by learning from those experiences and simply waiting for the inevitable thaw. Jera is the communion wine – the product of the joining of opposites bringing life. Storms may come and go, but the sun is always there and life is generally pretty good. Enjoy it while you can.

 

Your Tarot Card of the Day for July 24th is The Moon

 

 

Tarot Card of the Day

The Moon


July 24th, 2015

What has traditionally been known as the Moon card refers to a deep state of sensitivity and imaginative impressionability, developed within a womb of deep relaxation. Here we dream and go into trance, have visions and receive insights, wash in and out with the psychic tides, and experience deep mystical and/or terrifying realities beyond our ordinary senses. The full moon and/or eclipse cycle charted by the Magi (as in some of the earliest Moon card images) exemplify this as a mechanism that Nature uses to expand consciousness.

The variants of the courtly lovers (representing skillful use of the sex force) or the man sleeping it off under the tree (use of drugs to alter consciousness) are also traditional avenues for tapping this primal force. Human interest in higher states propels us to the frontiers of consciousness, where we cannot always control what happens. The Moon card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between self and the Unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality reenters the Ocean of Being. What transpires next is between a soul and its Maker.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, July 25th

 

Aries

Venus turning retrograde today launches a six-week cycle that can find you reviewing, reassessing, and possibly experimenting with your social and love life, dear Aries. Work matters might be on the tricky side until the 31st. Review of health programs or work projects may be necessary now, particularly in terms of your enjoyment factor. There may be some lack of clarity in a romantic relationship. A mysterious backwards-looking energy is with you on a romantic level. It’s a period of fateful events and encounters. Your powers of attraction are high, but your love life may be complex. While reminiscing about the past is just fine and in fact helpful right now, try not to get stuck there. On the job, it’s time to show yourself what you’re worth – the focus should be on making yourself happy. Get in touch with what truly matters to you. Your more impulsive and reckless traits are likely to be stimulated this morning with a Mars-Uranus square. Something on the domestic front might get you irritated today, and your impatience doesn’t help. Energy, though stop and go, might be harnessed to do something creative or productive, and if you manage to do so, you could move mountains right now. Watch for rebellious or rash moves. Perceptions are a bit skewed today and tomorrow.

 

Taurus

Venus turns retrograde today, and will remain retrograde until September 6th, dear Taurus. You will be looking at creative projects, romantic matters, relationships with your children, and home or family matters in new ways, perhaps critically at times. It’s not about putting creative ideas on hold, it’s about refining them before pushing forward. This can also be true of romantic relationships. Past loves may reappear, possibly in the flesh, or you could be a little hung up on them emotionally. A current romantic interest may be difficult to read. You may discover that you have been undervaluing or overvaluing someone during this cycle. There may be some comfort issues to deal with around the home. On a psychological level, too, you could experience some lack of support from family members during this cycle. The trick is to learn how to more confidently rely on yourself during leaner times. This morning, a Mars-Uranus square can tempt you to take shortcuts, but instead of saving time, it could cost you some. Don’t let impatience rule. Recent unresolved matters may be at the heart of stressed or impatient behavior today.

 

Gemini

Relations can be on the tricky side today, dear Gemini, with Venus beginning its six-week long retrograde cycle. Social graces may not be up to par, and it’s important to avoid taking social faux pas too seriously. This cycle can find you strolling down memory lane frequently. Until the 31st, you may be dealing with uncomfortable conditions in the home or with family, or you could be revisiting old personal or domestic problems. For the remainder of the retrograde cycle, communications and your daily life are up for review. You may be thinking about, analyzing, or talking about old relationships and matters, perhaps feeling a little stuck in the past. In fact, you can learn a lot about what you want, who you love, and what you value during this retrograde, but important, big decisions should probably wait until later. This morning’s Mars-Uranus square can stimulate restlessness. Impatience can lead to impulsiveness today, especially with money, but it can also get you worked up about a differing concept or value that someone is expressing. You may need to deal with consequences of poor decisions today, so keep your wits about you.

 

Cancer

Venus turns retrograde today, dear Cancer, and during this six-week cycle, you’ll do well to review the past in order to better understand your needs and values. You are looking at matters differently, especially related to finances, possessions, comfort issues, and love relationships. It’s probably better to avoid making important, life-changing decisions until you’ve digested everything. You might have important conversations about the past and possibly love during this time. You might be learning to live leaner. It’s an excellent period for reviewing finances and collecting financial information, as well as re-budgeting, but not ideal for buying new big-ticket items. If you are good at spotting deals, however, you could find some unusually good ones. A Mars-Uranus square this morning can put you in reaction mode, especially if you feel restricted or overruled. Your own independence could get you some negative attention today. Act from your heart rather than in reaction to others.

 

Leo

Venus turns retrograde today, launching a six-week cycle that turns love and financial matters around for review. This retrograde begins in the sign of Virgo, but returns to your sign, dear Leo, on the 31st where it remains for the remainder of the retrograde. While you may not always feel confident and certain about your feelings during this cycle, it’s an excellent period for considering how your approach to attracting what you want has served you in the past. It can be an important time for making adjustments to your personal behavior and manner. Taking extra time to figure out what it is you want is natural now, and anyone foolish enough to pressure you will not get very far! This morning, with a Mars-Uranus square, you may get all fired up over something, possibly a past or buried issue, but outlets for expressing your frustration can be limited. Differences of opinion can seem like blocks right now, but you’ll be much better off if you find ways to work through frustration before making a stand. Get to the heart of your impatience. Uranus will station retrograde tomorrow.

 

Virgo

Venus has been in your sign for only a week, dear Virgo, and may have already brought you some pleasant attention and perhaps a few admirers. Today, Venus turns retrograde. This cycle lasts until September 6th, and while you will still attract others magnetically until the 31st when Venus moves back into your privacy zone, you could be a little withdrawn and hesitant about pushing forward in matters of the heart. Your love life is bound to become a little complicated and perhaps fateful. It’s a strong period for getting in touch with your needs from love, as well as the way in which you present yourself to others. This can be a time when you have a change of heart as you look at matters in a different way. Complicated love relationships may be an issue in the coming weeks. It can be a good time to put a difficult attachment behind you once and for all. This morning’s Mars-Uranus square can be a little problematic, especially with Uranus nearing a retrograde station. There can be a conflict involving a friend or associate revolving around matters of give and take. It’s probably not best to push things right now, as you’re likely to come up against a brick wall. Confusing interactions complicate matters considerably. Keep your cool now, even if provoked. It’s better to observe than take definite action at the moment.

 

Libra

Romantic matters are on the complicated side for you these days, and some of you might be tempted to bury your feelings in order to concentrate on other areas of life, dear Libra. Some of you will feel the need to keep your deeper feelings private. Dealing with past relationships, love triangles, or sacrifices made for a lover can figure strongly in your life now and in the coming weeks with a six-week Venus retrograde cycle beginning today. Your love life may be complex during this cycle, and you should watch for secrets surfacing that make you rethink current plans. Friendships can enter tricky, complicated territory later in the cycle. Resurfacing of issues and possibly even people from the past may figure strongly. Uranus is about to turn retrograde as well, and a square with Mars today can stimulate provocative energy. It’s your “job” to keep a handle on your own emotions, as it can be just as easy for others to hit a nerve with you as it can be to hit theirs. Unresolved tension can build, but you might discover a creative or physical outlet for it.

 

Scorpio

The ruler of your partnership sector, Venus, turns retrograde today, launching a six-week cycle that turns your attention to the past as well as to some of your unacknowledged inner needs, wants, and desires, dear Scorpio. Some of you could be experimenting with your social or love life. Friends may not be as forthcoming in the coming week, and you may need to approach acquaintances with more sensitivity. For the remaining five weeks of the retrograde period, partnerships, finances, and career matters can be areas that require a second look. Don’t waste your time trying to come to a decision about a relationship matter that is not yet ready to be resolved. Let things flow and observe how things are unfolding. Uranus is also coming to a retrograde station, and this morning’s Mars-Uranus square can have a little more impact than it normally does. You could have little patience when it comes to work or the sheer number of “little things” that you need to do today. You may be tempted to take shortcuts that could end up costing you more in the long run. If you can manage it, try to work independently or in a setting in which you can set your own pace, as others’ slowness can frustrate you now.

 

Sagittarius

Sensitivity is important today as we can be a little on edge, dear Sagittarius, with both Venus and Uranus coming to a station. The Venus retrograde cycle that begins today can affect your professional goals or reputation for the first week, as you may be returning to old problems or dealing with resurfacing problems. The remaining five weeks, Venus will reverse into your adventure sector, and while some of your plans may require redoing or rethinking, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see things in a different way and this can work to your advantage in the long run. This can also be a time when you’re processing recent events and you are catching up with your feelings on these matters. This morning, emotional restlessness can tempt you to take unnecessary risks, with money or with people. Haste truly makes waste today, so aim to take it easy. Listen to your heart rather than to others who may not be expressing themselves very pleasantly. Also keep in mind that all is not as it appears today, particularly when it comes to career matters and friendships.

 

Capricorn

Venus stations and turns retrograde today, dear Capricorn. Retrograde Venus will spend its first of six weeks in your adventure sector, and the remaining five in your intimacy sector. Your attention can turn to the past as you do some catching up with your feelings about your relationships, attachments, finances, hobbies, and pet projects. Review, revise, and redo if necessary. Most importantly, as you come at these matters from a different angle, get in touch with what it is you truly value and enjoy. Try to leave important deal-signing for a later date. Uranus is also coming to a station and Mars is in challenging relationship to Uranus this morning. You could be dealing with moody, stubborn, or difficult personalities now, especially when it comes to those closest to you. Crankiness tends to come from inner restlessness and a desire to break free from restrictive circumstances, so give everyone the space they need, and moods will settle.

 

Aquarius

With Venus now retrograde, it’s time to review the past and to avoid making important, life-changing decisions until you’ve digested everything, dear Aquarius. This six-week cycle is about playing catch-up with your feelings, needs, wants, and values. This is not a time for making strong, definite decisions, but rather for considering problems from different angles and perspectives. This Venus retrograde cycle lasts until September 6th, and for you, reassessing relationship and intimacy needs can figure strongly. Your ruler, Uranus, is also coming to a retrograde station tomorrow, and is challenged by Mars today. This influence can have you feeling pressured. Avoid hasty moves and shortcuts, particularly when it comes to work, paperwork, communications, and transportation. While the retrograde cycles of both Venus and Uranus should be rewarding on many levels, their stations today and tomorrow can be a little disorienting as you adjust to the changes of direction, and perceptions can be a little skewed.

 

Pisces

Venus turning retrograde today launches a six-week cycle in which you are getting into better touch with your feelings, sensibilities, tastes, and values, dear Pisces. You are given a chance to catch up with those matters that you’ve overlooked, brushed aside, or simply were too busy to deal with. You may be looking at partnerships, relationships, your work, or your health and daily routines in a different light. Questions of whether you are enjoying yourself enough can be called up now. This morning, a Mars-Uranus square can have a stronger influence than usual with Uranus also approaching a retrograde station. Do your best to avoid risk-taking with money. You might work up the nerve to take an emotional risk with a love matter, but it’s probably better to wait for a less volatile time to express yourself. There can be difficulty seeing things clearly today, and our judgment may be slightly impaired.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 24th

 

 

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, July 24th

 

Aries Horoscope

The Sun and Mercury are in a fellow Fire sign, dear Aries, and these positions tend to strengthen your confidence and increase the desire to make connections, express yourself, and enjoy life. Your romantic and/or creative nature is strongly stimulated now. Venus, which rules values, love, and resources in a general sense, and partnerships and money for you more specifically, is turning retrograde tomorrow. This points to a period of review of any or all of these things as you reassess whether or not your needs are being met. You may turn to the past in order to better understand the present, but because you may feel a little stuck there, it is not the best time for pushing forward with new plans. Uranus, in your sign for some time, is also about to turn retrograde. Both energies are strong now, but as you adjust to the change of direction, you may not be seeing things clearly. The next few days are better for taking in than taking definite action.

 

Taurus

With both the Sun and Mercury now traveling through your home and family sector, dear Taurus, the more focused and relaxed pace tends to become you. Indeed, you are often quite happy dealing with your domestic chores and surrounding yourself with familiar people and things. Even so, there are times when you may feel under the radar or not fully understood by the rest of the world. Even so, you may very well choose to work harder at finding peace with those closest to you. With Venus about to turn retrograde and soon enough re-entering this same sector of your chart, you are likely to reconsider recent moves, relationships, and events as you get into better touch with what it is that you need and want, particularly from family and home life.

 

Gemini

The Sun and Mercury cycles that you’ve recently begun are good for branching you out a little more, communicating, and making connections, dear Gemini. You’re likely to be running more errands than usual, moving about physically and mentally, managing your daily life more effectively, and communicating with people more frequently. You may be craving changes of scenery more often now. Venus and Uranus are moving towards retrograde stations, making the next few days a little confusing. However, their retrograde cycles are good for getting into closer touch with your desires, needs, and values. During this transition period, try to hold off on important conversations and decisions if possible. Wait until perceptions are clearer.

 

Cancer

The Sun transits your solar second house until August 23rd and Mercury transits this same sector of your chart until August 7th, dear Cancer. Money and possessions can assume more importance in your life in the coming weeks, and so can matters of comfort, sensual enjoyment, and activities that remind you of the simple pleasures in life. While life is settling down a little, you tend to be looking around you, accounting for what you have and what you may need, so that if you feel wanting, you’re more likely to want to fill the gap. It’s a good time for taking charge of money, and care of your possessions. Venus is reaching a station, as it will turn retrograde tomorrow. Uranus will station the following day, so that perceptions can be a little askew just for now. Avoid jumping to conclusions. Today is strong, however, for imagination and creative pursuits.

 

Leo

The Sun is in your sign until August 23rd and Mercury is in Leo as well, until August 7th, dear Leo. Venus will return to your sign on July 31st through retrograde motion. There is a lot of attention on you now! You are in the spotlight, not necessarily for what you do or what you have accomplished, but for who you are. You are projecting more strength and people take notice. Venus turns retrograde tomorrow, and then re-enters your sign for the remainder of its retrograde starting July 31st and running until September 26th, and this can point to a period of some introspection and a re-examination of what and who you value. Today and the next two days are days of shifting, and this can mean some confusion about these things until you get into the swing of things. As such, it’s probably better to delay important decisions.

 

Virgo

More time set aside for rest, introspection, healing, and meditation may be necessary with the Sun in your privacy sector until August 23rd, Mercury in the same sector of your solar chart until August 7th, and tomorrow’s retrograde turn of Venus in your sign. You are more naturally inclined to pull back a little from situations that are excessively demanding or competitive. You are not as quick to talk of your plans or to make definite decisions. While Venus’ retrograde cycle lasts from tomorrow until September 6th, it will occur for the most part in the sign of Leo, even though it begins in your sign. This can point to a false start of sorts for some of you, particularly related to relationships or money matters. Today and the next couple of days can be a little disorienting if things are moving too fast, and there could be some miscommunications to deal with as a result.

 

Libra

Your need to be with others or to feel part of a community or network is stronger now with the Sun in your friendship sector until August 23rd and Mercury in the same sector of your solar chart until August 7th, dear Libra. New ideas for the future might be hatched during this cycle. They’re still very fresh, and some might be scrapped later, but there is a birthing process of sorts going on right now. While today is strong for imagination and creation, there can be some confused signals occurring with both Venus and Uranus moving towards their retrograde stations. Both of these affect your relationships, and because Venus is your ruler, you can also be feeling a bit torn between wanting company and needing some time to sort things through. Take your time on decisions during these shift days as you learn to accustom yourself to the strong energy for review and examination, as you’ll have a lot to learn over the coming weeks about your needs and wants.

 

Scorpio

In the coming weeks, your major focus turns to professional matters, ambitions, material and social success, and your reputation, dear Scorpio. Depending on your current position in life, this can be about your long-term goals and general plans for your life. Performance and responsibilities come into stronger focus, and you’re bound to find that you are more accountable for the things you do and don’t do. There can be increased mental activity and communications to and about your goals. Others take special note of what you have to say. There is strong energy for creative and romantic feelings. However, with Venus and Uranus both approaching their retrograde stations, much can be left up in the air for now. Their retrograde cycles are strong for reacquainting yourself with your needs, wants, and desires, but the shift can be disorienting, so avoid major decisions just for now.

 

Sagittarius

In the coming weeks, there is a stronger focus on exploring, enjoying, and experiencing life than there has been in recent times, dear Sagittarius, and you definitely need it! The Sun is transiting your adventure sector until August 23rd, and Mercury is in the same house of your solar chart until August 7th, and these influences tend to be like a pick-me-up. You are a little happier, more confident, and a touch braver as well. Venus is about to turn retrograde and Uranus will soon follow. This can point to a few days of transition energy, which can be a little confusing, but only until you acclimatize to the changes of direction. In fact, the period ahead is good for getting to the heart of a relationship matter, and even more importantly, what you truly value and need for yourself.

 

Capricorn

With the Sun now shining its light on some of the things that are typically hidden from view, dear Capricorn, and Mercury in the same sector of your chart as well, you are bound to learn a lot about your inner motivations, and about the world around you. You are less concerned with being heard and understood than you are interested in understanding the workings of people and situations around you at a deeper level. Soon, Venus will return to this sector of your chart as well, but this time in retrograde motion, making it an especially important time for exploring some of your own fears or negative attitudes. It will also be a time for reviewing financial matters, particularly those shared with a partner and money or resources that come in as a form of support.

 

Aquarius

The Sun and Mercury are now pulling your attention to close relationships, dear Aquarius, and the recent strong focus on work and routines lifts. Even though these are still important things to you, they are no longer on the front burner. Adjusting yourself to social situations, to others’ agendas, and to your personal environment is a bigger concern now. Self-expression through your relationships is important now. You might seek out others for their moral support. Even if you don’t end up following advice, you’re likely to enjoy hearing other points of view before coming to a conclusion. Venus is approaching a retrograde station, and so is your ruler, Uranus. This makes the coming few days a short period of transition as you get yourself accustomed to the changes of direction, but the retrograde periods themselves are cycles of review. You can find yourself examining the past in order to better understand your present needs.

 

Pisces

With the Sun and Mercury in your solar sixth house, until August 23rd and August 7th respectively, you can experience renewed energy and motivation for work and routines, dear Pisces. Venus will return to this sector of your chart on July 31st, this time in retrograde motion, adding even more emphasis to these areas of life. Take every opportunity that arises to work on greater self-awareness, improvement of self-care and health programs, and dealing with detail work. You are more aware of your limits, and your focus is largely on correcting details and solving problems. Try to avoid the more negative side of these influences, which involves fretting or stressing over less important things and failing to see the bigger picture. Today brings beautiful energy for creating something special and unique, even if these are only in the idea stages.

An Overview of Your Love Horoscope for the Weekend of July 24 – 26

 

 

Weekend Love Horoscope

July 24 – 26: Looking back

 
The Moon will be in Scorpio until Sunday morning, so it appears that the better half of the weekend will leave you emotionally charged. You might yearn to go deep with your lover, but at the same time you may feel a certain wall that either you or your sweetie has up. If this happens, recognize it as a wall of self-protection that may not even need to exist. Sometimes we put up defenses in response to previous heartbreak or betrayal. The person you’re with now may have absolutely nothing to do with the emotional reaction you’re experiencing.
