How to create a vicious cycle

A rainmaker has been called in to your town to end the drought. He conjures up one little rain cloud. It seems to hoover over your head, no one else’s, casting dark shadows. You mood dampens. In your gloom it seems like a good idea to go home, alone. You isolate. You talk to your gloom. It talks back. Nothing good comes of this. You both decide you’re alone because no one likes you. The phone rings. You don’t answer. Why bother with people who don’t like you anyway? Your friends stop calling. See? You were right. Nobody likes you.

The moral of the story? Never talk to gloom. Wait it out with a good book, a warm comforter, and a purring kitty in your lap.
The Force of hope is with you.

Sunny Sunday, January 29, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
The Moon is still in your sign until 10:30 this evening, so you’re full of warm, good feelings. Something like an oppressive dark cloud may drift by--don’t follow it. Let it pass as unnoticed as possible. It’s just a temporary block to the Sun, which is still shining. Turn your attention to your kindness in helping others. You’ll feel sympathetic today with a genuine interest in other’s well being.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The hot-blooded Aries Moon is in your 12th house of tea and sympathy. You’re inspired to help others, and you enjoy doing so. You don’t think of it as work, even though Saturn might try to throw in some burdensome duties. Tonight at 10:29 the Moon moves into Venus ruled Taurus. You’ll enjoy a deep sense of well-being. Even if other things are challenging, this gives you a breather for the next couple of days.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your friendships are spotlighted by a warm Aries Moon, adding spontaneity and fun. But the curmudgeonly old father Saturn would send your friends home early to do their chores. Meet his opposition with curiosity, not obedience. He might try to rain on your romance, or your playfulness with your children. But the only way he can dampen your spirits is if you agree to withdraw. Put yourself out there.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Emotions may be a little too intense for your tastes right now, with the heated Aries Moon in your 10th house of ambitions and career. There’s opposition from take-everything-too-seriously Saturn in your house of home and your place of comfort. Don’t sit at home alone or you may feel lonely. But hang on, tonight the Moon shifts in your favor and you’ll feel much more relaxed--even dreamy. The Taurus Moon comes in at 10:30 giving you a sigh of relief and a sense of security.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Your adventurous spirit is getting a big boost from having the spontaneous Aries Moon in your 9th house of exploration. Today there’s a temporary glitch (best way to think of it) from way-too-serious Saturn who’ll encourage you to pull back. Don’t listen to anyone who would discourage you, especially your own inner critic. This evening you’ll enjoy some relaxed time with your mind, to explore your dreams.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You have the energy to get to the bottom of things, particularly in the realm of feelings. The intense Aries Moon in your 8th house of transformation will add a hyper-alertness to your emotions. You’ll definitely tune in to the moods of those around you, like it or not. Walk away from negative or discordant situations and people--you sensitivity is high and your boundaries weak. Tonight the Moon moves into your harmonic friend, Taurus. You’ll feel a sigh of relief and relaxation.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
The Moon is in your 7th house of relationships, sparking an emotional intensity. Yet there’s frustration as Saturn opposes you by inhibiting your initiative. You could feel stuck with some very sensitive feelings that you don’t want to share. This leaves you feeling cut off and lonely. Invite your sadness in for tea. Insist that it mind it’s manners, be polite, and only speak if spoken to. Give it no power. Just a couple of sugars.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Serious, patriarchal Saturn has been in your 12th house of compassion and visions for some time now, giving form to your hopes, dreams and wishes. It’s also been an influence for clearing out old structures to make room for the new. Today Saturn is being down right oppositional toward the passionate Aries Moon, putting dark shadows over your emotions. This is a passing storm, don’t worry. Hold your positive dreams in your mind. Tonight a wave of refreshing relaxation comes in with the Taurus Moon, your compatible buddy.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
With the creative Aries Moon in your 5th house of romance, children and creativity you are on fire with intense emotions. You’re very tuned-in to the moods of those around you, so be careful to surround yourself with positive people. Your friends could give you well-meaning but discouraging advice. Saturn in your house of friends adds seriousness, yes, but it also gives sober, stable commitment to one another. If anything today starts to feel like a wet blanket on your picnic, walk away.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
The intense, heated Aries Moon is in your 4th house of home, stirring up feelings. Don’t do anything rash. The stern father-figure is opposing this Moon, putting a chill in the air and taking up space in your favorite easy chair. Annoying. But tonight around 10:30 you’ll feel relaxation come in with the Taurus Moon. The next couple of days will favor any intuitive decisions you make regarding business and resources. You get a big deep breath of relief.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
You’ve had a prolonged period of the big Stern Saturn adding seriousness and a grounded realism to your communications. It’s as if the beautiful idealism you hold for humanity needed a more concrete form of expression. Saturn would have you bring three pages of text down to three very concise sentences. Today you may feel this as an emotional squeeze. Then this evening your mind relaxes, and your ideas are free to roam again.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
You’re feeling practical, determined and very resourceful with the pioneering Aries Moon in your 2nd house. However, there’s an oppositional force to your emotions, which may leave you feeling cut off from others. You may find yourself wanting to just be left alone--don’t bother me. Stay positive and don’t isolate. By this evening the tide turns and a loving Taurus Moon sails in with soft, fluffy pillows for you to relax and rest. And Monday morning will have a fabulous start for you. Stay tuned.
