It seems so much easier to loose your mind than to find sanity. When we get a precious moment of peace it disappears, like a valueless trinket, with the slightest nod from running-on-impulse. The phone rings, the computer pings, and poof. We’ll actually try to kill ourselves to talk on the phone while driving--at the very least we’ll fork over a $148.00 fine. I mean really, there's just no time to meditate.
When I cross the Golden Gate Bridge, I imagine the towers are the hands of God, holding me up. My granddaughter asks her dad to pay the toll for the car behind them--she loves this small kindness. Takes no time at all.
Smile for Sunday, December 18, 2011...
Aries (March 20-April 19)
Waking up is sweet this Sunday morning. You may actually glide down the stairs for breakfast. Emotions today are loaded with charm and elegance. Sit awhile and let your feelings catch up with you. Make up a happy game to play in your mind. Call it “Freedom from Guilt” and refuse to blame yourself or anyone else for absolutely anything. Do it all day long. Guaranteed happiness.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
There’s a fast tempo today to your communications. Lots of talk talk talk. The cards and letters may pour in. You may have a few moments of just feeling ill at ease--other people’s little idiosyncrasies becoming bothersome. Deep breath. Turn off the beeps and rings and create your own peacefully grounded world. You’re our lighting rod!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re attracting communications to you this morning. Lots of news and chatter. You enjoy it, since everyone is polite, considerate, even diplomatic. By afternoon some depth is added in and feelings may get rather intense. Anything that feels compulsive to you is a sign of where you need to break from the past--exactly what Pluto is trying to help you do.
Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You don’t need to practice random acts of kindness--you just are one. Your natural sensitivity to the needs of others is right in sync with this morning’s peaceful stardust. Grace and manners are on the breakfast table, along with some peace and quiet. The buzz picks up around noon. You have lots to say and news will be traveling fast. You may get some sudden impulses this afternoon--just be sure you’re doing what you want to do.
Leo (July 22-August 22)
It’s a great day for random acts of kindness. The Libra Moon is a soothing balm after yesterday’s Mars. Peaceful easy feelings. News, and lots of it, is burning the circuits up by noon. Other than a little impatience with all the trivia, it’s harmless chit chat. The emotions of the day build in intensity during the afternoon. If you find yourself acting compulsively--stop. The impulse will pass with an honest recognition of what you really need.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Peace please. The Peace Pilgrim, who wandered the world dependent on the kindnesses of others, must have relied greatly on a bunch of Virgos! Your practical feet keep body and soul together for those you love. A gentle reminder that you’re not to be taken for granted should be all that's needed for those you serve to stop and say, thank you.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’ll put a smile on everyone’s face just by showing up this morning. The Moon is in your sign and you are in your element. Your feelings are full of grace, even elegance. Tell someone how you feel, it will bless them. You’re very tuned-in to others and their feelings. This afternoon you might be in for some strong emotions related to your past. The stars are just showing you where to let go.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Astrology says that nobody understands a Libra better than her Scorpio friend, since Scorpio has just completed the evolution through Libra. Therefore, this morning’s peaceful Libra Moon has you feeling right at home. You’re clairvoyantly in tune, and sensitized to the emotions of others. Play a game of Truth or Dare. Use your famous psychic sleight-of-hand to amaze your family and friends with how well you know them. Joy. Everyone loves to be known.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
If you slow down a little this morning you’ll get to enjoy Venus as your muse, and create some graceful, even elegant, thoughts and feelings. By noon there’s a quicker pace to communications. Lots of news coming your way. You’ll find it easy to say what you feel today because you are especially honest with yourself--one of your best traits on any day! Enjoy the freedom of holding nothing back--at least with your trusted friends.
Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
You, or those around you, may be tempted to get into emotional power struggles. It’s just transformational Pluto suggesting a remodel of wants and needs--letting go of the “should” and “ought to” wants in favor of the hearts true desire. At the heart level, there’s never any struggle. Love wins.
Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Key to success and happiness today is don’t sweat the small stuff, and it really is all small stuff. Trivia seems to abound, even as headline news. It’s a little irritating when you’re on a mission--and you definitely are. You’re mentally reflective. The year is coming to a close. Time to appreciate all you have done for others. Offer yourself that famous Aquarian unconditional love. You’ll feel at peace.
Pisces (February 18-March 19)
The morning is a chance to reflect about the state of your union with others--particularly a partner. The Libra Moon speaks to your natural sensitivity, asking you to apply it openly and fearlessly to mend the gaps in your relationships. Stay focused on what’s in your heart. You may have to wade through some chatter to get to what’s true. Honor your truth, such a precious gift, by sharing it with those your trust. Chit chat belongs in the crowds.
