First, a bit of housekeeping — and gratitude to the reader who called my attention to the non-functioning links in recent forecasts. They are now all functioning, and by special request, here is an encore presentation of the link to the Joan Armatrading song, “I’m Lucky” from yesterday’s forecast. There are worse ways to start the day, especially in the beginning days of new lunar cycle.
Moon is still running strong in chatterbox Gemini, focusing the day on information and communication — especially really big ideas and worldly viewpoints. Anyone up for a philosophical discussion? Depth and substance in social interactions of a most congenial kind are favored around 5-7PM ET.
Magic, spirit, healing, film, music, art and other intangibles; confusion, delusion, dissolution — these themes may run strong in your world for the rest of the week, as nebulous Neptune challenges both the Sun (on Wednesday at 4:57PM ET) and mental Mercury (on Friday at 5:38PM ET). In the language of astrology, Neptune refers to things that may not be as they seem…or a force which dissolves whatever it touches. It suggests spiritual highs and the rosiest of dreams. It seeps through boundaries. It can cast a veil of illusion over a person, thing or idea — not a bad to have if you’re an actor on a stage…a wizard…a mystic…or a snake oil salesman. With Venus retrograde, you can enjoy the pixie dust and mirrors…without worrying about making a commitment to the show at this time.
Oh — one more thing — the Moon goes void at 6:51PM ET, giving you 12 1/2 hours to cast a few spells without consequence until Moon enters Cancer at 7:31AM ET on Wednesday and demands a focus on emotional security.
