Moon continues its journey through Sagittarius, pushing boundaries and reaching new heights. It’s aided by the expansive optimism of Jupiter this morning at 8:34AM ET, and by the innovative spirit of Uranus at 4:45PM ET. Together, the three planets are in a rare and brief Grand Trine pattern, often associated with abundance and ease of action. Your mission today is to not take it for granted.
And now, the news.
This just in: “Astronomers Measure Distance to Furthest Galaxy Yet”. What I just said in the first paragraph.
Sagittarius is driven by righteous opinionation. It can be blunt, coarse and brutally honest. Yesterday a sex-education quiz allegedly taken two years ago by a 14 year old girl went viral. The girl was suspended, even though all of her answers were truthful.
In other news, power plays at a foreign media outlet are making headlines (“foreign” and “media” are Sagittarius keywords). Al-Jazeera America is in “turmoil,” says the NYT. Top executives have departed; allegations are swirling about dysfunctional and sexist management; a lawsuit has been filed.
I once interviewed for a job at Al-Jazeera. I was not hired. Which turned out to be a good thing, as the article above confirms.
This gives me the opportunity to share with you one of my favorite maxims: “When man (or woman) rejects, God protects.” Think about that, especially when you are feeling down because someone shut a door in your face (or did not ask you out for a second date). In hindsight, you’ll likely be glad they didn’t pick you!
Which brings me to another one of my favorite maxims: “You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be”.
Finally — so I can post this sooner, rather than later — an update on NYT columnist David Brooks, whose horoscope we’ve been following for almost a year, as it’s been on an expansive run. Yesterday, when transiting Jupiter (expansion, publishing) was minutes away from an exact meet-up with his Mercury (writing, communication, travel), he posted an op-ed specifically plugging his latest book. Of course he did.
In the op-ed, “What is Your Purpose?” he asks readers if they think they’ve found their life purpose, and how they did so. I’m guessing he wrote about this subject because so many people do not feel they know why there are here or what they are designed to do. And you know what I’m going to say next, right? (other than “David Brooks is going to make a fortune selling this book.”)
Get to know your horoscope. It’s a map, as intricate and insightful as DNA or a software program (with the extra bonus of Free Will). Use it for guidance. If you do, you will better understand who you are naturally designed to be — and who you need to be — in order to fulfill your life potential.
Here’s the last paragraph of the op-ed:
Mostly the idea is to use a community of conversation as a way to get somewhere: to revive old vocabularies, modernize old moral traditions, come up with new schools and labels so that people have more concrete building blocks and handholds as they try to figure out what life is all about.
Revive old vocabularies? Astrology has been around for a verrrrry long time. But for some people, it might feel more like a “new school” of thought. Still, it has plenty of “concrete building blocks and handholds” to offer. Here’s the 411 on personal consultations.
