Whirligigs, a whimsical amusement?

Whirligigs are not just pretty wind toys to decorate your garden. Oh no, they have a purpose in life. While whirling prettily about, their anchoring stick generates vibrations and sounds that drive away burrowing rodents! So, while pleasantly humming your way through this lovely lazy Sunday, think of the unwanted pests being repelled by your happy song.
The Force of contentment is with you.

Sing your way through Sunday, January 15, 2012.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Ah, put your feet up, head back, and really sigh. So big it fills your room. Your house of partnerships is in the spotlight, asking you to share your innermost thoughts with a good, trusted friend. It may feel more “natural” to hold a lot in, but if you do you’ll feel isolated. Uranus is working on changing your self concept. Since he’s all about freedom from the old, Uranus wants you to define yourself in you own terms and to have fewer restrictions in the way you express yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is an utterly pleasant, even lazy, Sunday. You are so at ease with yourself, that you just don’t feel like working. Please don’t. Something may pop up that encourages you to let go of the past. It would be a tension, like a faucet that’s shut off too tightly suddenly springs a leak. A relaxed day is a good time to catch up with your true self.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Highly adaptable, your intelligent Gemini Sun gives you the mental agility to catch whatever life throws at you in mid air. A tension may surface in the course of the day that reveals something you missed while being so busy. Easy to resolve simply by bringing it into the light. Generous Jupiter has teamed up with Venus to give you a day of relaxation and recreation. A feeling of contentment weaves through all your activities--especially a nap!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Isn’t that just like compassionate Venus in Pisces, her first day in town and she’s already declared it a fair-exchange day. Under her blessing, with Generous Jupiter giving her anything she wants, every interaction you have today turns into a win-win situation. You’re in an easy going mood, and everything does in fact go easy. You have uncanny instincts for sensing what is needed--your good fortune is not just luck!

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Lounge on top of the hillside, surveying all that you own, and feel the contentment. A helping hand from Generous Jupiter makes this a day when every exchange is a fair one. Still, a crisis may occur that serves to release some built-up tension. Clearing the air will benefit you. You’ll be more relaxed, just in time for a sleepy Sunday afternoon nap.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You won’t feel like working. It’s truly a day of rest declared by the stars. Put your “have-to” list under a rock and forget for now. A new friend, or re-connecting with an old friend, will be good for you. You will both promote growth in each other. Some experience today will leave you feeling like a winner. More of Venus’ perfect, compassionate timing coming your way.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Rest and recreation are the two best choices for your free time today. You’re feeling your Sunday best, knowing that today is going to be a win-win. Everyone has “stuff” that’s below the surface and comes bubbling up every now and then. It could be a quick, wet microburst, warning of a storm. Or, an underground spring that bubbles up fresh water, creating a new way to feel. It’s in your best interests--to release hidden tensions, further clearing the decks for this transformational New Year.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Do I come clean or keep this a secret? Your gut may say to hold it in, but if you do you’ll feel cut off and lonely. There’s a nagging tension, like watching the dam crack with the rising river waters. Your job is to let go and relax into the contentment of this day. Whatever surfaces, share it with a trusted friend, don’t try to hold it in.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Telling the truth, especially to yourself, requires first knowing what it is. Today you may feel like a geyser is about to blow out, spraying your repressed tensions into the sunlight of spirit. Such relief! You’re headed toward a deep contentment and feeling at peace with the world. Your honesty flies straightforwardly like a well released arrow, finding it’s mark.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Overall, you feel a contentment with your world. Your generosity has brought you a victory. Also, just to help clear the air, something comes up today, like a recent tension that you just didn’t have time to deal with when it happened. Today is the day the stars picked for you to resolve it. Your Capricorn birthday marks the beginning of your personal New Year--starting with a clean slate.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Stern Saturn gets into the act today with a downer of an idea--he wants you to keep your feelings and most private thoughts to yourself. While this may sound like a safe plan, it actually isolates you from the love that would connect you. A softer, easier feeling threads it way through the tension and wins out in the end. You feel at peace with your life and happy to just be where you are.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
R & R for everyone. A declaration form Venus for relaxation and recreation happens to fall on a Sunday, traditionally the day of rest. Another wind is blowing from Serious Saturn, who’s suggesting that you hold your cards close to your chest--reveal nothing. Problem is, you will feel depressed if you do that. Instead, pick a trustworthy friend and share--it should feel exciting and scary. You’re actually taking a risk. You’re trusting in a power greater than your one, lone self. You’re happily connected!
