Because there is nothing wishy-washy about Scorpio, Saturn is finishing its transit here in decisive fashion. “No longer this,” we think, even if we’re not sure what will fill the gaps opened by loss….
Gemini doesn’t much care which holidays you choose to observe or what you call them; he can abide any heresy except boring conversation. His standard holiday greeting is, “Happy Whatever.” His job description, to paraphrase Caroline Casey, is “to believe nothing and entertain possibilities….”
Whenever you find yourself feeling a little bit uncomfortable, like a proverbial fish out of water, then you’re doing Sagittarius right. Whatever makes you look at the world, or even just your own life, with new eyes and wonderment – that’s Sagittarius territory.
When Mars and Pluto come together in any kind of aspect, little bugs like you and me need to look both ways before we fly across the road. We rarely see the windshield coming until we’re already on the floor.
Here, I think Taurus has exactly the right idea. Take care of the simple stuff, and you’ll be in better shape to tackle complex problems.

If we push, the world will push back. If we choose to take action, there will be consequences. Sometimes they are positive consequences; other times, not so much. Often, we have no way of knowing in advance which way it will go….
The equinoxes are like twilight, like the golden, hazy hours just after dawn and just before sunset. Cinematographers love to film during these hours, because the footage for one can double for the other time of the day. They call it “magic hour.”
Each year when the Full Moon falls in Pisces, we’re asked to reacquaint ourselves with the value of retreat. Work, itineraries, and striving to become better, faster, and more accomplished, dominate our consciousness while the Sun moves through diligent Virgo. But overwork can lead us down wearying and unproductive paths….
