Thirsty sponge, wet sea

Your mind is an indiscriminately thirsty sponge today, ready to willy-nilly suck up whatever floats by. Watch your absorption contact point. If you manage your sponge well, moist but not dripping, you’ll have enough room to download a few imaginative and inspiring dreamscapes.

Warm-up exercise for handling today’s Neptune-Moon surge: Can you imagine that when you’re awake thinking, you may actually be asleep dreaming? And when you’re asleep dreaming, you may actually be awake thinking? Upside down? You say you have witnesses who see you when you’re sleeping, and know when you’re awake? What if we’re in a shared delusion? Like Oz. Quick, check for green glasses!

Hold on to “reality,” Wednesday, December 28, 2011.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
All your psychic antennae are up! You have your feelers out, sensing your way through the mind field. Luckily you have Mindful Mercury in a compatible fire sign so your circuits are firing clear ideas. Neptune is not just a dreamy fog, it also inspires us to oneness and altruism. Do a mitzvah, help someone lost in the soup of today!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You have a heightened sensitivity to your surroundings. You’re picking up on subtle clues from everyone around you. Because today’s Neptune-Moon surge is in an air sign, it may cause you to doubt yourself. Don’t. Remember, subtle does not mean weak. Read the clues. Add it up.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a woodling & doodling opportunity for you. Let your mind wander and doodle your thoughts. Today’s Neptune-Moon surge is in Aquarius, your compatible air sign. Word scramble is in effect, but you love puzzles. Get our your vision board (in the back of the hall closet) and go for it. See 2012. See your happiness.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Ears are perked up, you’re hearing sounds no one else can hear. Those subtle frequencies at the high note range are coming through, almost making you wince. Problem is you’re normally very sensitive, so today’s surge from a Neptune-Moon conjunction is overdoing it! Remember the aluminum hat trick? Put it on. Dial in to yourself.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Remember the old adage, “always play tennis with someone better than you?” Stretching into the positive sea of energy, the place where winners triumph, only requires a conscious decision on your part. It’s just as easy to decide to do that, as to mindlessly absorb the fear-of-the-day. Big menu. Eye on the prize.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
What can I say? Dreamers have the upper hand today. Realists are in the minority. The Neptune-Moon power surge is in cool-headed Aquarius, but it’s a stressful quirky distance away from your solid ground. You’ll read people’s minds, but remind yourself quickly that it’s not up to you to help them out of the muck. One mind is enough to manage today. Focus on the dreams about you.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’re eyes are feeling very heavy, you are falling asleep to the sound of a voice in your head...Wake up Libra and dream a little dream of loving yourself. But don’t try to put words to it--it’s a scramble. Better to paint a picture. Use a metaphor. Write a poem. See yourself happy, healed and whole.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Neptune, the god of the sea, is familiar friend to your watery depths. Today’s dreaminess can reveal clues to mysteries--just your cup of tea. Neptune combines with the Moon to reveal in dreams both the desires of your Soul, and also the desires of ego. One brings you a feeling of peace, the other fear. Follow your peaceful preference. Plan to leave the rest in 2011.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Lost in a daydream, dreamin’ ‘bout that bundle of joy--a childlike Sagittarian no doubt with your gift for positive thinking! The Neptune-Moon combination today can inspire your zest for freedom, and a dream of all people having a better life. The great Knight Sir Lancelot must have been a Sagittarian, with Camelot’s Aquarius motto, “in serving each other, we become free.” Dream a dream of what freedom looks like to you.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Dream a little dream of what your life would look like if all your problems were solved. Now. Believe in it. The Moon joining Neptune today triggers deeper desires for more compassion--especially for yourself. Mama Cass sang it beautifully, “Sweet Dreams that leave your worries behind you.”

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
It’s your ability to walk in another’s shoes that makes your humanitarian view so inclusive, so collective. You can expect an epiphany today--at least one. The Neptune-Moon surge is in your sign, activating a solar powerhouse of intuition. Take time to realize what your dream is. Take notes. The full meaning will come later.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Neptune would have your squint your eyes and “see” the full spectrum of the rainbow--even those incredible violet hues. With the Moon close by, you’ll experience the beauty around you, and also feel the feelings of others today. Your natural sensitivity adds a vulnerability--a vertigo-inducing fog. Clear your mind with a walk, some gardening, or something that grounds you. Do your dreaming in the sunlight.
