Sweeter than Tupelo Honey

Today is sweeter than Tupelo Honey, with a spicy kicker! Nothing more loving and affectionate than the joining of Venus with a compassionate Moon in the deeply empathic sign of Pisces. A recipe to create art, love and beauty. It’s in your hands. Stir it up.
The Force of a hug is with you.

Thankfully Thursday, January 26, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Most of the day is a beautiful, loving vibe. You feel very affectionate. Reminiscing with old friends about good times together is very in tune with today’s mood. You’ll want to enjoy yourself, even be a little indulgent. If you’re on a strict diet, hide the chocolates! Later in the day warrior Mars shows up and you may find yourself in a hurry, acting hastily, or being a bit impulsive--a set-up to explode into I-can’t-take-it-anymore anger. Even if it’s a lover’s spat, it will quickly pass--like all your anger, gone with your sunny disposition.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The goddess of love is showing her most affectionate side today. Usually she waits for love to come to her (never a problem!) but occasionally she is struck with something like today’s compassionate Moon in Pisces, and she’ll go out and make home deliveries! When you add this much feeling to Venus’ already indulgent habits, desires are inflamed, along with other appetites. Hide the chocolates. Later in the evening an angry irritation pokes you on the shoulder, but you shrug it off. Try to remain calm, even if those about you are loosing their heads!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Happy happy day. You’ll want to go out and socialize with friends. It’s not a day you’ll want to be alone. You radiate emotional warmth toward others, and a party would suit your mood just fine. You can easily handle the irritable energy that slips in around 8:30 this evening with a song--Trouble, oh trouble, trouble, trouble, doggin’ me all day long! Just watch the YouTube dog commercial and laughter will replace worry.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
It’s as if spring fever has hit in the middle of January! You’re in love with life and want to get out there and have fun. You’ll want to share this lovin’ feeling with others, and even reach out and hug someone! Venus paired up with the Moon in your harmonic sign makes is a sweet treat with warm affection all around. There’s a minor irritation later this evening when irritable Mars tries to provoke a fight about absolutely nothing important. Walk away.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Today is thick with love and golden as a slow moving river of sunshine. Not rare for your big heart, but still unusually sweet. It’s Venus energy that has you thinking ‘bout the birds and the bees. Write a song for Valentine’s, or paint a vibrant red heart. Hang on to your sweetness this evening when an irritable wind blows. Since Mars in Virgo is the fuel for this irritation, you may just loose it with someone being unbelievably picky. That someone could be you, so add an apology to the Valentine lyrics, just in case!

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If possible, you’ll enjoy hanging around the house today. Love is in the air, the water, and especially the food. Like water for chocolate. As long as there’s love, affection, and plenty of well-deserved appreciation, all goes well. Later this evening the mood gets a passionate twist. Emotions can ignite with anger, and you won’t even need a match! Since the culprit, warrior Mars, is in Virgo it may be a slow burn with perfectionistic undertones.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Yes, it’s a pink cloud, romantic haze kind of a day that is usually over-the-top and impractical. But, in honor of Venus paired with the Moon, it needs to be that way today! Make friends with this loving feeling and share. It’s a warm-up for Valentine's. Around 8:30 this evening a discordant note is struck by Mars. This is the that’s-the-last-straw type of explosive anger that catches you off guard. Stay calm, it not only will pass, it will pass in a big hurry--the way it arrived!

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Your harmonic watery neighbor, Pisces, is gracing you with a strong, heart-felt love today. You’ll feel very affectionate. Mars is only peripherally involved, so this is not necessarily an erotic vibe, but hugs and kisses yes, yes, yes. By evening there’s an irritability that creeps in like a flea in your coat. Small, but annoying. It needs a way out--beat a pillow, hit a racquetball, or just plain yell on a mountain top. A little spice can be nice.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Butterfly kisses for breakfast. Venus and the Moon are stirring up a beautiful love fest, and you’ll want to be in the thick of it. With all your fire, this watery vibe may be a little subtle--like your coffee just seems to taste so much sweeter this morning! The part you excel in is the show of affection, and today it’s no holes barred. But, wait for it, the other shoe drops around 8:30 this evening. You may just feel like picking a fight. Don’t.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Sneak preview--It’s a kissy-face day and not even Valentine’s yet! Love and affection are so easily spread around today. Be a grateful recipient and an even more grateful giver. Hold up a sign, “Free Hugs.” Have fun with what happens. Later this evening a spoiler tries to get in the party but you’ll see him coming. It’s the do-it-yourself handyman who hits his thumb trying to nail a “Keep Out” sign on the fencepost. Let everyone in.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
A punching bag would be best. Your usual cool head will get some reasons to heat up this evening, so be sure to enjoy the fabulously loving mood you’ll be in most of the day. (and really you could hold on to it with this fair warning!). Use any excuse today to let yourself melt into some mushy affection. Buy a jar of Kiss My Face. Pick a spot on the planet that you love, and sit their with someone you adore.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Love and affection abound! It’s a kissy-face day and not even Valentine’s yet! You are getting the best of the vibes since both planets inspiring the love are in Pisces. Write your sonnets now and save them for February 14th. This evening livens up with an oppositional and moody irritation. Oh go ahead, stir up a little trouble! Mars is just absolutely irritating today with his nagging, so let him have it! Hold nothing in.

P.S. Watch for my Friday special, Date Night!
