It never fails to amaze me when life events reflect planetary patterns…and vice versa. I’ll consult with a client and see the potential for a promotion, or a serious new relationship heading their way…and sure enough, the promotion and/or relationship materializes, exactly as anticipated. Still, I’m amazed. I do not claim to know why astrology works. I just know that it does, and I’m thrilled that I understand it well enough to help people live their lives better.
So yesterday I’m having a conversation with someone — not a client, mind you — and he’s telling me about a colleague whose email signature includes a particular quote. And he just loves this quote — and I am amazed by this quote because it so perfectly reflects yesterday’s planetary patterns. It’s a sobering thought that I hope will inspire you to make good use of the rest of the week, if you haven’t done so already. Ready?
A goal without a plan is just a wish.
Do something productive about this, won’t you? You’ll have plenty of fuel for high-flying dreams, courtesy of the Moon’s continued sojourn in optimistic, big-picture oriented Sagittarius. A need to express it all in some rose-colored ideal is suggested by a curious challenge to Venus (love, beauty, women) from foggy, dreamy Neptune — this connection is exact early Thursday morning, but definitely in effect now. Why else would Diana Nyad (Venus) be doing a 48-hour swim (Neptune) in New York as I type?
Venus-Neptune aspects are great for wishes — and artists, lovers, healers, creative types and spiritual escapes. Now ground those wishes with the substance-demanding fallout of yesterday’s Mercury-Saturn hook-up. We’re talking blueprints and other building blocks. Aspects are light today — favoring cooperation and innovation. Tomorrow, when the Moon enters “make it happen” Capricorn, you can get even more earthy and practical.
