We hate to cut things short but it seems that we always wait to the last minute to do anything! We still have somethings we need to pick up for tonight and tomorrow night. Since we are out in the boonies, if we don’t get going, we won’t be back till Sunday (just kidding!).
Anyway, have a great afternoon and we will definitely see you tomorrow. Wouldn’t miss sharing Samhain with you for nothing. Till then….
Explanation: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble …. maybe Macbeth should have consulted the Witch Head Nebula. A suggestively shaped reflection nebula, this cosmic crone is about 800 light-years away though. Its frightening visage seems to glare toward nearby bright star Rigel in Orion, just off the right edge of this frame. More formally known as IC 2118, the interstellar cloud of dust and gas is nearly 70 light-years across, its dust grains reflecting Rigel’s starlight. In this composite portrait, the nebula’s color is caused not only by the star’s intense bluish light but because the dust grains scatter blue light more efficiently than red. The same physical process causes Earth’s daytime sky to appear blue, although the scatterers in planet Earth’s atmosphere are molecules of nitrogen and oxygen.
Mercury, the communication planet, should be feeling comfortable in the sociable air sign of Libra. The air element is very much about the mind and communication, so it fits very nicely with Mercury’s meaning. Libra is about building bridges and overcoming differences. It recognizes that there is more than one side to any question and seeks to harmonize opposing points of view. Diplomacy, then, is likely to be featured at this time, both in the larger public arena and in our personal lives.
Mercury in Libra can soften speech to ensure peaceful relationships. It’s necessary at times to bring down the noise level so that both sides can be heard. This is, therefore, a good time to heal wounds caused by misunderstandings or different views of reality.
The challenge of this period is that the tendency for being nice can sometimes overwhelm the necessity of being truthful. Being kind then becomes a barrier to real communication. Ideally, we can recognize (in Libra’s well-balanced manner) that there are many ways to connect with one another, and that agreement is not the only one. Expressing opposing points of view with respect and openness is a terrific way to strengthen any relationship. It is about being fair enough to yourself and others to both listen and be heard.
Famous folks born with Mercury in Libra include singers Bruce Springsteen, Olivia Newton-John, Cass Elliott, Art Garfunkel and ultra-charming Julio Iglesias. Actors Jeremy Irons, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Reeves, Richard Harris and Susan Sarandon are part of this group.
Sports stars Doug Flutie, Brett Favre and Scotty Pippen were born with Mercury in Libra, too. Writers Carrie Fisher, Stephen King, Michael Crichton and Ken Kesey have entertained us with their thoughts. David Copperfield has shown sleight of hand, Evel Knievel a crazy kind of courage and Larry Flynt more than we really want to see. Mercury in Libra is also found in the charts of artist Peter Max, comedian-activist Dick Gregory, director Penny Marshall and poet-statesman Vaclav Havel.
Ace of Pentacles
Prosperity, pleasure and beauty can be realized.
Berkano is the Rune of birth and rebirth. This may symbolize a time when you are capable of great personal growth. Love may be in the air as well.
Scorpio the Scorpion
This aspect of your life will be strongly influenced by a person who is determined, forceful, emotional, intuitive, powerful, passionate, exciting and magnetic. This person is probably an acquaintance you made at work.
Your Daily Influences represent events and challenges the current day will present for you. They may represent opportunities you should be ready to seize. Or they may forewarn you of problems you may be able to avoid or lessen. Generally it is best to use them as tips to help you manage your day and nothing more.
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.
As a daily card, Solitude suggest a period in which you need to distance yourself from those around you and explore your inner-self, what is driving your day to day life and decide if you are really on the life path that is best for you. This is a time to revitalize your spirit, and draw your dreams for the future.
Meaning: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path. Always consult the surrounding runes with this stone. If it lies with a positive stone, it indicates that the pain of this experience will lead to a beneficial change in circumstances
The completely feminine counterpart to The Magician, the High Priestess is the Gatekeeper of the subconscious, the unknown. She travels in worlds which most of us only glimpse in our dreams. Her realm is that of unseen truths, untapped potentials, and hidden dangers. The Calling of The High Priestess is to go beyond the obvious and visible to tap those powers which are veiled from normal vision. While she is passive by nature, she has the power to uncover unknown potential and is very aware of the infinite potential all humans harbor within them. She is also very patient. She can wait for events to blossom in their own time.

Additional information about Today’s Rune, Othala
Phonetic equivalent: o
DIVINATORY MEANINGS: property, land, inheritance, home, permenance, legacy, synthesis, sense of belonging
MAGICAL USES: for acquiring land or property, to complete a project, to strengthen family ties
ASSOCIATED MYTHS & DEITIES: the nine worlds of Yggdrasil
ANALYSIS: In oþila, we find ourselves back in the seemingly mundane realm of wealth and property, just like the first rune, fehu. However, while cattle represented a more movable, transitory form of wealth, the land (as Mr. O’Hara said) is the only thing that lasts. It can be passed on as a legacy, but more importantly, it defines who we are by defining where we are. It is, ultimately, our home.
This rune brings us to the seventh cardinal point, which is the centre. It is the meeting place
between Midgard and Asgard; between our Gods and us. It is the axis around which our lives revolve. The idea of land or property is only a symbol – we must all find our own “centre” (or, as Joseph Campbell termed it, our “bliss”) to give our lives meaning, and this is really the ultimate goal of the runic journey. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we discover that after all our travels and adventures, we all eventually end up going home. But this doesn’t mean that the travels and adventures are pointless. On the contrary, it is only through those explorations that our ‘home’ or spiritual centre can have any real meaning for us. “There’s no place like home” of will have no power to send us there unless we come to truly understand what and where our home is to us.
Conversely, none of lessons learned along the way can be of any real use to us unless we actively integrate them into our ‘mundane’ lives and find that centre point to anchor them to. Oþila not only completes the smaller cycle of the third aett, but also brings us back to the beginning of the fuþark itself, only on a higher level. We may now begin the grand cycle of the runic journey again.
The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. The actual day of the New Moon, the balsamic or dark Moon period, marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the following days magic is in the air and the inner life is awakened.
Imagine the first crack of an egg. It takes work and diligence to crack that egg open and expand toward new dimensions, but the effort is always worth it in the end.
This metaphor illustrates the potential available to each of us the day after a New Moon approaches. The following quote expresses the essence of the New Moon’s potential.
“A New Moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe.” –Rumi
The New Moon: The Fool
“Behold, a sacred voice is calling you. All over the sky a sacred voice is calling you.” –Black Elk
Do something different for a change. Dare to be lighthearted. Change what you wear. Surprise yourself with a new attitude. Shine the light of magic and wonder in all that you do and see. Watch the birds take flight from tree to tree. Free yourself from old routines that tie you down and exhaust your immune system. Allow the vibrations of the New Moon to awaken your inner life with fresh perspectives and promptings.
Suggested flower essence: Shooting Star … discover yourself again and embody the genius of your soul!
Crescent Moon: The High Priestess
When each day is sacred, when each hour is sacred, when each instant is sacred, Earth and you, space and you, bearing and sacred through time, you’ll reach the fields of light. –Guillevic
The crescent Moon has been associated with Isis, the Egyptian Goddess known as She Who Makes Right Use of the Heart, or the Mother of Heaven. Isis’s headdress is often depicted with the horns of a cow on her head, and the solar disc between them. These horns are a symbol of the crescent Moon and are representations of immanent fertility and prosperity.
An intuitive spark of heart and mind have been lit. You now bear the torch. Be still while you listen and visualize. Take note of the seeds that have been planted within your garden of life and do everything you can to bring nutrients to the foundation of your life. Moisten and deepen your attunement to inner truth. The crescent Moon offers a force of light pushing forward within you.
Suggested flower essence: Cat’s Ear … attune to the magic of your intuition and act accordingly.
First Quarter: The Magician
“You must become the change you want to see in the world.” –Gandhi
The Magician is one who has become seasoned and attuned to the conscious aspects of life ready to manifest. The Magician leads the whimsical wandering of The Fool into a clearer stream of consciousness that can actualize miracle upon miracle. You must now understand the world of matter and turn that which has been unseen into visible creations. Be productive, active, goal-oriented and joyous in every endeavor. Nothing can remain stagnant at this stage of the Moon’s phase. The theme of creative movement is evident in the flow of life.
Suggested flower essence: Iris … the creative paintbrush of the soul. Paint your dreams into manifested joy and deliberation.
Gibbous Moon: The Wheel of Fortune
“How shall I begin my song in the blue night that is setting? In the great night my heart will go out. Toward me the light comes, rattling. In the great night sky my heart will go out.” –Medicine Woman Chant
The gibbous Moon phase can be called the womb of potential. Life is a constant process of transformation and movement involving integration, disintegration, generation and degeneration. Having recently experienced a rebirth cycle, you are now ready to embrace all that is expanding and growing in your life. Confront your opportunities and challenges in order that a permeable reality may evolve. Learn new things, stretch your imagination, seek new experiences and take in an interesting movie or documentary and study. Fill your life with interests and activities.
Suggested flower essence: Mountain Pride … the great warrior of the heart moves forward, actualizing dreams and goals. Perseverance is the key.
Full Moon: The Sun and Moon
“Each night Lady Moon gathers unto herself all the discarded memories and forgotten dreams of mankind. These she stores in her silver cup till dawn. Then, at first light, all these forgotten dreams and neglected memories are returned to Earth as Moon-sap, or dew. Mingled with lacrimae lunae, ‘the tears of the Moon,’ this dew nourishes and refreshes all life on Earth. Through compassionate care of the Goddess, nothing of value is lost to man.” –from the Legend of the Moon by Sallie Nichols
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” –John Wesley
The force of the Sun and Moon are illumined and the pure potential of both lights are fully active. The chalice cup is full, life is brimming over with expectation, and the cornucopia horn of plenty has been placed at the center table of life. Wisdom shines outward. Share your gifts, talents, joys and manifested creations through teaching, writing, dancing and community sharing. This is the peak of light and you are filled with its radiant glow.
Suggested flower essence: Lotus … flower of water and air bringing the unconscious forces into conscious knowing and insight.
Disseminating Moon: The Star
“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.” –Mary Oliver
This is the time to pour forward all that you have accumulated by networking, sharing news, offering service and find the joy to be the light of the world. You know the mystery of life and you live according to the secret wisdom found in the Full Moon phase. Share in the mystery and walk in the beauty of your true self. This is a time to reach for the stars as they become more visible with the decreasing light of the Full Moon. You may ask yourself, “How may I serve the world?”
Suggested flower essence: The Rose … deeply rooted in the Earth, the rose blossoms into the beauty of love. The rose opens the heart chakra so that we may do our very best work on Earth.
Third Quarter Moon: Judgment
“From joy I came, for joy I live, and in Thy sacred joy, I shall melt again.” –Yogananda
Look deeply now to assess all that you have become responsible for. We have countless opportunities to weigh our pros and cons in life. Seek to negate all polarities and opposition within and roll them back into the deep soil of the past. Now is the time for a renewed self-reflection and once again you are prompted to spend some quality time alone, read a good book, get a haircut, clean out closets, move things around. It will beneficial to fast for a day or eat lightly so that your body may purge and cleanse. You are preparing for another turn of the Moon … and darkness in the sky brings bright wisdom within.
Suggested flower essence: Sagebrush … cutting through all illusion and confusion, sagebrush cleanses the aura and the field of light around the heart chakra.
Balsamic Moon: The Hermit
“Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity and beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity.” –Thomas Merton
When the dark Moon resides within the heavens, a sweet quiet is pervasive. Meditate, contemplate, pray, chant and rest. There are many ways to experience the descent into the unconscious successfully, and the more attentive you become of this inner need, the greater balance and immune health an individual will attain. Strengthen your connection to the invisible worlds, seek the cave and find the light within.
Suggested flower essence: Queen of the Night … desert cactus flower that blooms in the night offering the inner light of the unconscious.
The Moon phases are the magical wheel that we dance upon each month. In your own birth chart you have your own progressed Moon phases that coincide with the eight phases that I have written about in this post. Each progressed Moon phase lasts approximately 2 1/2 years. You might like to find out which house your progressed Moon is passing through and what sign it is in. It’s great to understand the mapping of your own inner sky.
What has traditionally been known as the Devil card expresses the realm of the Taboo, the culturally rejected wildness and undigested shadow side that each of us carries in our subconscious. This shadow is actually at the core of our being, which we cannot get rid of and will never succeed in taming. From its earliest versions, which portrayed a vampire-demon, this card evoked the Church-fueled fear that a person could “lose their soul” to wild and passionate forces.
The image which emerged in the mid-1700’s gives us a more sophisticated rendition — that of the “scapegoated Goddess,” whose esoteric name is Baphomet. Volcanic reserves of passion and primal desire empower her efforts to overcome the pressure of stereotyped roles and experience true freedom of soul. Tavaglione’s highly evolved image (Stella deck) portrays the magical formula for harnessing and transmuting primal and obsessive emotions into transformative energies. As a part of the Gnostic message of Tarot, this fearsome passion and power must be reintegrated into the personality, to fuel the soul’s passage from mortal to immortal.
This is a good time for learning or working on the go, dear Aries, or for doing some wonderful thinking in motion. Even so, there is strong energy for quiet time, family relationships, and comforting or homey activities. You might be craving a little more connection with people you love or your roots. You seek out the familiar now, and this can in fact serve to strengthen you for future more adventurous endeavors. This is also a good time to mend broken fences with people if this is needed, and for bringing a little more harmony into your world. You are taking special comfort in reliable relationships and activities.
Through a steadfast, reliable approach, you have much to add to your relationships today, dear Taurus, particularly romantic and intimate connections. Creatively speaking, you’re in a good position to firm up your creations or plans. Today is also good for communication, learning, sharing, and your social life with a Grand Trine occurring in your relationship sectors. This is an intuitive influence. Your ideals are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to people who inspire you. Conversations can be illuminating. There is a nice flow to your communications, and you’ll enjoy the fact that people are picking up on the intention behind your words.
The Moon leaves your sign this morning and enters your sector of values and resources, dear Gemini. You are seeking balance on an emotional level, and you could feel that you’re more settled and comfortable with emotional needs less urgent. You’re drawn to physical and sensual comforts, and tend to enjoy the moment more than usual, particularly as the Sun and Neptune also support your endeavors. Insight into business, financial, service, and health matters can be stellar now, particularly if you listen to your inner guide rather than pressure your mind to think up answers. You could be feeling a sense of mission now. A partner, counselor, or special friend is likely to be especially supportive, offering practical guidance.
The Moon enters your sign early this morning, dear Cancer, and you begin anew on an emotional level. Put issues behind you that no longer serve you well. Wipe the slate clean on an emotional level and start fresh. Break out of your shell and dare to go against the grain if you feel the desire. While you might awaken feeling a little sluggish, as the day progresses, so does your mood. You are more powerful and visible right now. It’s a time for centering yourself and channeling your energy creatively. There is a healthy balance of optimism and caution so that efforts and plans you make now tend to hold weight down the road. In the coming weeks, you are more inclined to want to balance things out in a partnership. Imbalance can really leave you feeling off-center.
This is a strong time for quiet activities and some introspection, dear Leo. Take some personal space if you need it, and tune into your inner world. Energy levels may not be strong just for now, but you can benefit from a gentler pace. You may solve a problem or help someone with ideas or knowledge, but for the most part, you are better off with quiet, productive activities. A review of recent events is appropriate now as you wind down a lunar cycle. This can also be a strong day for sorting out a financial problem. While emotional matters are in strong focus, you’re also clearer than usual on the practical plane.
This can be a strongly creative day for you, dear Virgo, particularly when it comes to building, design, and structure. In a general sense, the coming weeks are powerful for design with Pallas now transiting your creative sector. Your vision is unique and inspiring. Today, you have special style, and might effectively paint yourself in a very good light or solve a complex problem. When it comes to love, you’re thinking practically and in terms of the long view. It’s also a good day for your social life, communications, and teamwork. It’s easier than usual to muster up support and cooperation, and brainstorming can help you move your plans forward.
This is another good day for connecting with your inner world, dear Libra, even with the outside world demanding your attention. Insight into money and business matters is excellent again today. You are also more able to express feelings or impressions that you frequently leave to the imagination or can’t find the words for. You are coming across as competent and responsible today, and tend to earn the respect of people in authority. You have steady energy working for you both personally and professionally. However, this is not a day for putting all of your cards on the table. Pass on information on a “need to know” basis only.
You are drawn to, or have special appreciation for, true-blue friends and reliable people in your life today, dear Scorpio, as you have a real desire to count on others now. This can be a good time to receive or give mature advice, or to consider the practicality of plans. Information coming in through friends or networks can be especially helpful. Even so, this is a wonderful day for creative inspiration. Emotional energy runs high, and you’re inclined to feed it further with interesting topics, interactions, and experiences. This is not a time for strict routine. You may be looking for a higher meaning to what you’re doing now.
This is a strong day for earning respect and gaining support from others through your actions, dear Sagittarius. People around you are appreciating your steadfastness. Cooperation can be excellent now. There can be a good sense that you’re supporting one another in a relationship, or that your goals are meshing well with the people you care about. Business relationships can benefit now. Agreements tend to be mutually beneficial now. Today is about showing respect, and the wonderful side effects of doing so! It’s also a good time for tuning in to your inner guide with a nice connection made between the three sectors of your solar chart that have to do with your inner world, family life, and emotions. Don’t be afraid to acknowledge those tricky things that you might normally sweep under the carpet. Use this time to find answers to emotional dilemmas.
Now and in the coming weeks, you’re especially interested in ways to stand out for your creativity or unique viewpoint, dear Capricorn. Others tend to take special note of your intelligence and insight. Your approach is a little more confident and you’re not as reserved when it comes to asserting your opinions or sharing your ideas. There can be especially interesting people coming into your life. Today is good for communicating warmly. You are more approachable in your manner, and more inclined to attract positive people or experiences into your world. This is a good time for repairs and resolutions, and working together with someone can be particularly productive.
You’ll do well today if you focus on harmonizing, beautifying, or otherwise bringing more balance to your personal environment, dear Aquarius. This can apply to your workspace as much as your home, as you’re in a rather practical frame of mind these days and can feel quite inspired to redefine goals in your work, health, and financial world. You can experience a stronger desire to be of service to people you care about, or you could be feeling a little more in tune with the work you do or the self-care programs that you have in place. You could find that going with the flow comes naturally today, and in fact improves your mood.
You’re entering a cycle that can bring you into contact with particularly interesting and perhaps unusual people and groups, dear Pisces. It also brings strong energy for especially unique ideas and plans. Today is strong for expressing your more creative, playful, and romantic side. You are being framed especially well, and can find it easy to access your “inner child”. While your mood is rather outgoing and your desire for fun is strong, you can also come to very practical, inventive solutions to work or mechanical problems now. A partner could show support for your long-term goals now. Agreements tend to be respectful and mutually beneficial today.
People are instinctively drawn to you, as you are an intriguing person who is sometimes intimidating without intending to be so. This is likely due to your ability to see through any given situation, and to read between the lines. You have very focused interests and you naturally and willingly work hard on something you believe in. While your interests are focused, your talents are many and varied. Your emotions, however, sometimes lead you astray. You are a passionate soul, and your wit is sparkling.
Famous people born today: Harry Hamlin, Grace Slick, Henry Winkler, Ezra Pound, Charles Atlas, John Adams, Matthew Morrison, Nia Long.
This can be a good day for progress or idea-generating when it comes to creative matters or a romance, dear Aries. You are more able to express yourself in subtle ways, to feel in touch with what’s inside, and to convey your inner world or message easily. Words may not be quite as effective as body language and actions today. Activities that feed your imagination and sense of magic can thrive now. Inspiration may come from a private moment with someone, or from within. The pipeline to your inner world is open today, so take the opportunity to get to know yourself better. Consciously look for those things that feed your faith today for best results. Try not to get angry at yourself if you’re feeling passive, as much can be accomplished in the mind and heart now.
This is a good day for helping friends or a partner, dear Taurus, whether this is in tangible or intangible ways. It can be in the form of simply being there, talking through problems, gentle advice giving, or physical help. It can be a nice time for surrounding yourself with people who are accepting or share your own ideals. Like minds tend to gravitate towards one another today. It’s also a fine time for creative thinking, writing, and conversations about dreams, spiritual or philosophical subjects, as well as fanciful musing. Intuition is strong. You could be actively seeking out solutions to problems, and they’re bound to be unusual and creative now, as you’re tuned in to layers and levels of situation that you might miss on a busy day. A partner becomes a friend, or friend and a partner mix wonderfully now. The day is more about accepting and enjoying people than making big moves.
This is a good time for healing and repairing efforts, dear Gemini, particularly if you back up and let others be themselves, but also show that you’re supportive. You might have the opportunity to add some creative flair to your work, and ideas for marketing or promotion can be wonderful and inspired now. Some of you could be looking for a “calling” in terms of work, and the services you provide now can be inspiring. A sense of mission or purpose is with you today when it comes to business and possibly self-care and health efforts. Projects seem to come together magically. Feeling connected to something higher than the material lifts your spirits. This is the time to conserve your energy, not to waste it. If you’re looking for more from your routine, imagine improvements you can make. Today is strong for dreaming and connecting with your ideals.
Warm energy is with you today for love, affection, and acceptance, dear Cancer. Your personal magnetism is subtly enhanced, and your gentle manner is especially appreciated. Creative efforts tend to be rewarding. Sharing a dream, ideal, or belief with someone can enhance your bond. Love relationships can flourish now, and it’s not about pressure for commitment or pressure to do or say anything. Instead, going with the flow, listening, and opening yourself up to others are the key ingredients now, particularly if they have been missing a little recently. You’re more able to connect with the things that feed your spirit today. A busy life can sometimes separate us from soul-nourishing needs, and it’s time to reconnect. The Moon in your privacy sector all day also serves as a reminder to focus on emotional renewal.
This is a day for accessing your imagination and creativity fairly easily, dear Leo. Logic and intuition pair up wonderfully now, and this can help you understand yourself and others better. Feelings and actions tend to fall into place, and a gentle and perhaps slightly mysterious approach to the world today becomes you. Matters related to real estate, family, and the home tend to come together, and relationships with family or an intimate partner can be inspiring or subtly enhanced today. This is not the time for making big commitments or for overthinking – it’s a time for accessing inner faith and showing your acceptance of the people in your life. It’s also good for forgiving or understanding someone or possibly a past relationship in order to better put a grievance behind you – do it for yourself. Let things unfold without force or pressure today. On a practical level, money hunches may be worth following.
A strong day for communications and partnerships is in store for you, dear Virgo. You may find an opportunity to support someone who needs your help either mentally, physically, or spiritually. You could enjoy a pleasing attraction or find someone especially fascinating. Your own charm expands, particularly in the way you communicate or get your message across. Connections with others can be enhanced through a nice gesture or other form of reaching out. Try to allow your ideas to flow instead of trying to force them. You have much that you’d like to accomplish now, but it’s important to let things flow now in order to better access your intuition and imagination. Recognize your needs for some romance, subtlety, gentleness, and spirituality today for best results. Repair relationships with a gentle touch, concern, and care.
This is a strong day for paying more attention to your imagination and intuition, following a hunch, and tuning in to your needs to serve, help, and give back, dear Libra. On a practical level, instincts for money and methods are good, even if you’re not seeing all the facts clearly. Developing faith in your intuition as well as your natural talents comes more easily now. There is strong energy for design with you today. You might want to focus on activities that let loose your more compassionate side. Doing things for the inner rewards will feed you well now. You might find activities that soothe and relax you particularly beneficial. When it comes to practical matters, taking a step back from a problem can help your intuition to kick in. While you could feel some pressure from others, try not to succumb to it. The Moon is in your adventure sector all day, reinforcing the need for non-routine, spirited experiences.
Today’s energies are good for tuning in to your imagination and sharing your ideas and your warmth with others, dear Scorpio. You are coming across pleasingly and eloquently at times today, and your creative instincts are on point. Adding special creative flair to whatever you’re doing now is natural. There can be some psychic phenomena experienced now, as your hunches tend to be well-developed, particularly if you avoid succumbing to pressures to perform. You are likely to be feeling spiritually strengthened and well, and the world around you are likely to enjoy and appreciate your manner and attention. Helping others can fill a need. Take note of your dreams and ideas today, as they may very well take shape going forward. This is also a fine time for enhancing your manner or image in some manner. Like-minded people will make their way to you.
This is a favorable day for honoring your need to dream, wonder, and imagine, dear Sagittarius. Forgiving leads to healing, so aim to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally – your body counts, of course, but you need to feed your spirit as well. Your thoughts can be turning to matters of the past, hidden things, or mysteries. The need to find comfort in familiar situations and with family or close loved ones is real and strong now. Connect in compassionate ways, through gestures that show where your heart is, and that you care. Conversations should focus on acceptance. If you can manage quiet time, comforting activities, and rejuvenating endeavors, do so. The rewards will be great. Helping others out can also fill a need and lift your spirits. The Moon is in your partnership sector all day, suggesting that reaching out to others can be helpful.
This can be a strong day for connecting socially, dear Capricorn, as well as for work that engages your imagination. You are looking for inspiration now, and you’re likely to find it. With the Sun and Neptune harmonizing today, you would do well to set aside personal agendas and reach out to others. It’s a good day for overlooking differences, forgiving, accepting, and supporting. It’s also a fine time for team work and giving back to friends and family. Humanitarian efforts and gestures can be rewarding. This is also a good time for entertaining a new dream or plan, or for reviving an old one. Some of you could be feeling particularly poetic and expressive. Good energy is with you for accessing your imagination and applying it to your work, projects, and communications.
Work and practical projects seem to come together almost without effort today, dear Aquarius, if you allow yourself to step back from problems and let your intuition engage. Instincts for money and business are good. There can be some feeling of pressure to perform or to get things done quickly, but your best bet now is to allow things to flow more naturally. Others may be appreciating the talents that come most naturally to you, and you can make an inspirational leader, guide, or manager now. Alternatively, someone in authority or in the position to help you advance your goals can be supportive. Activities and mantras that build your faith in yourself and in the universe can help and succeed now. Others are likely to return the faith. Long-term goals can be elusive at times, but today you may very well be able to envision where you’d like to head.
With Neptune in your sign, dear Pisces, there can be times when you struggle with understanding your personal goals and identity, feeling as if you don’t have a clear tether. However, today’s Sun-Neptune influence can help you to feel connected. Ideas flow nicely now, and you could feel especially inspired by a new interest, topic, or idea. You are especially attracted to activities that feed your spirit and mind, and that take you away from immediate concerns at least for the time being. The desire to learn more about the world around you and other people is strong today, and you tend to attract experiences that broaden your thinking and your experience. Your personal appeal is magnetic now, and like-minded people can be drawn to you. Helping others brings you closer to yourself and lifts your spirits.
Friday night can be quite romantic even though the Moon will be in chatty Gemini. Gemini is typically a cerebral sign that is more interested in talking about feelings rather than actually feeling them. The difference this time around however, is that on Friday, the Sun will be at a gorgeous trine to Neptune. This is a spiritual and romantic aspect that encourages unconditional love and dreamy feelings. Adding to it is the fact that the Moon will be at a perfect angle to Mercury, which blends the ability to communicate rationally about your feelings without getting too swept away by them.
Then on Saturday morning, the Moon enters tender Cancer where she’ll remain for the rest of the weekend. A supportive link to Mars emphasizes your courage to feel deeply while showing your sweetie exactly how much you love him or her.
This Weekend’s Romantic Rating*
