Kerfuffles and many teaching moments

It’s been a few days of “#heblowsalot” tweets since Warrior Mars went gloves-off with the fiery Sagittarius Sun earlier this week. What’s it all about? Bottom line--awkward attempts to assert ourselves with authority we find repressive. Keyword: awkward.

Expect more kerfuffles, an absolutely onomatopoeic word! Sounds like an unexpected cough, caught between clinched teeth--like a wet-lipped Trilling Frog. Sums up the days we’re having!

On it goes, Friday, December 2, 2011...

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You love a new project, and today you may feel like starting several. Creative ideas that involve communications, media, or the Internet, are burning up your airwaves. You’ll have very clear, intuitive flashes (aha!) even about projects you’ve already begun. Still, remember that the winged god of communications is backpedaling, so it won’t happen as fast as you might like. Mere mortals, after all.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
While others are loosing their heads, you’re in the breakroom reading Mary Oliver’s poems. The goddess of Love is still blessing you with a depth of feeling about your relationships that’s quite intense, if you allow it. In fact, tuning in to the impulses of your heart could lead you to a transcendent experience today. You could write your own poem!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Talk, talk, and mor talk today! You’re wired for messages with Messenger Mercury paired with the hot to trot Sagittarius Sun. When they get together like this, in your opposing sign, the flow of mental energy is sharpened and clarified. Add in a side winder lightening bolt from the god of sudden changes, and you’re positively electric! You’re only problem today is static cling.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Commotion and fusses all around you perhaps, but you’ve still got the sweet Pisces Moon on your nurturing side. Try not to get caught up in your own thoughts today. Stay tuned to others around you. That will give you the advantage in getting your point across. If you feel anxious because no one is really listening, just walk it off. While warrior Mars has others agitated, he’s helping you perfect your skills--precision, even perfection is possible.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
You have a choice. The warrior planet Mars is set to maximum voltage, fire added to fire (the ingredients of a kerfuffle!). You can use the powers of concentration available to your now and fuel an activity you love, or you can let the sparks fly where they may. It’s an excellent time to fire up a creative project. You have the mental clarity to easily get your point across, although there will be more talking than listening for the next few days. Keep in mind that Messenger Mercury is still in reverse gear, so prepare to repeat yourself. But all good ideas need repeating.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your phone may be ringing constantly today--actually the next few days. It’s somewhat irritating for you since you’re plans are clearly laid out, and you don’t welcome the interruptions. Given that the Messenger Mercury is in his cave, let the machine get it--you can listen later at your own pace. Your challenge is to stay calm, but you won’t get much help doing it!

Libra (September 23-October 22)
If there’s a delicate issue hanging in the air, something you’ve been meaning to say but couldn’t find the words, today’s the day to say it. Then, make yourself stop and really listen to the reply. Your keen intellect is sharper than ever, but communications are strongly colored by emotions coming up from your basement storage unit. The past is over. You decide the colors of your future.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Today you may get more messages than you’d like to handle. You’re naturally good at working with stocks, wills, trusts, and corporate money, but right now you might want to wait on big decisions. Your mental signals are coming in sporadic bursts. Impulses are firing quickly, but are not necessarily accurate. You can trust your feelings and keen intuition--they’re right on.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You sharp mind is even sharper today.You have lots of mental stamina, but just a little jittery around the edges from the occasional circuit overload. Your skills for self-analysis are heightened by an increased ability to concentrate and to be objective. Turn your attention inward. Look in the mirror, deep into your eyes. See the love.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Some feisty ego energy is flying around today. Don’t let it land on you. Slow things down a bit. Try working with you hands, doing something requiring manual skill. While the warrior Mars is tripping up the less grounded folks, you have his concentrated energy helping you act effectively--especially in your close relationships.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Originality is a mental skill you have naturally, and now the messenger planet is favoring you with some added juice. You can step into the lead, get the attention of the whole crowd, with just a snap of your agile mind. It’s easy today to get your point across. Your emotions are on another track, but they’ll catch up with you later.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
A tidal wave of messages are coming at you faster than you can thoughtfully respond. Try to just feel your way through, trusting your intuition. People are talking more than they’re listening, so save your rebuttal for next week. The goddess of love has you involved in some intense discoveries. Focus on the moments of beauty.
