The Sagittarius Full Moon is for looking at the big things that hurt and terrify us, that are perhaps a bit too large for our hearts and minds to accommodate. For figuring out how to stretch ourselves to make space for it all, with a little room left over for compassion, wisdom, and hope….
Nothing in this month’s planetary picture should discourage you from brain- storming your Gemini heart out. But it may be the case that one idea immediately collides with another, and then another, and another, until your mind is racing and you feel like you did as a kid, spinning around and around until you collapsed dizzily on the front lawn….
Oh, self- righteousness can feel so good. Setting someone straight. Telling it like it is. Few things offer the delicious jolt of freedom, of agency, of utter indifference to consequence that comes with letting fly a self-righteous screed. But even if what you say is true, and even if you can argue for its necessity, that kind of truth-telling is never kind and almost never improves upon the silence….

“Going gently” sums up Libra’s approach to the world. It appears as elegant touches in unexpected places, moving with grace, choosing the nice shirt, setting things down carefully, coaxing the cat. It’s in the little ways of approaching life with a spirit of beauty and grace, smoothness and quiet.
Though eclipses are dramatic and interesting, few of them are truly life-changing. For many of us, this Solar Eclipse will come and go with some mild emotional disruption and perhaps some unexpected developments in some area of life, and that’s about it. But watch your chart closely over a number of years, and you learn to identify its hot spots. And this particular eclipse triggers one of mine….
I’ll bet it’s easier to think of half a dozen people who’ve recently given you poor service than it is to name even half as many who’ve offered help with a smile. Why does it seem so many people are unhappy in their work? Apart from things like sustenance wages and job insecurity, I think it’s mainly for two reasons….
Aquarius-style friendships are the mesh tank tops of relationships – loosely-knit alliances that keep us covered but let us breathe. They let us feel like a part of society without losing our independence.
