A whole city made of emeralds--really?

There’s a foggy, sweet delusion in town that has you tripping over whose feelings are whose. The clairvoyance you’re experiencing today is not practical (for the real story on Practical Clairvoyance come to my workshop). Sound your fog horn when you feel this vertigo--not knowing whether your thinking is upside down or right side up. Nebulous Neptune is passing out green glasses to please Venus’ desire for more jewels. Seems harmless?

Let’s talk turkey on Wednesday, January 11, 2012.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Whims and whimsical treats have the upper hand today. Your own personal version of Oz is operating. Nebulous Neptune has rolled across your mind, coloring your mood a dusty pink. Very sensitive emotions are spotlighted, which they don’t really like, causing hypersensitivity to the slightest rejection. You might even get your feelings hurt over something that was never actually said. Question your own “logic.” Indulge in extra hugs.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Get your mind off the chocolate cake calling you from the kitchen. The emerald visions of Oz make it look better than it is anyway. And, if you go shopping, leave the credit cards at home. If you still want it tomorrow, go ahead. You’re wearing your heart on your sleeve, so don’t let anyone take advantage of your pink cloud mood by trying to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A sweet tooth will love today’s self-indulgent Venus. Maybe goddesses don’t gain weight! But to be on the safe side, try to raise your sights above the candy dish, and onto some inspirational art. Your heart is opening wider and wider. Neptune blurs boundaries on purpose, hoping you’ll see everyone as deserving of your love.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You may have aviation vertigo today--thinking you’re upside down when you’re really right side up, and on course. Luckily, you can trust your intuition. But the wizard’s green glasses do make it hard to see clearly--just know that today you may be susceptible to falling for a sob story. You’ve got new sensitive skin, and even the air causes you to wince. Nothing wrong with taking some time to be by yourself.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Ah, temptation. Venus loves lavish. There’s no way around saying you’ll want some self-indulgence today. The Leo Moon is making a direct beeline for the goddess of love, and she always suggests pleasure. If you must overindulge, make it one that contributes to your health--like a 90 minute massage! Leading up to this Friday the 13th, Venus will become progressively more universal with her love. Your dreams are growing.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Let your inclination toward the extravagant satisfy itself by planning that long overdue vacation. Overindulgence is on today’s menu, so make it something you need a lot of. The challenge comes from a pink cloud fog thrown over your keen, rational mind. So, if you have a stomach ache, watch what you eat, but also ask yourself, “what’s happening in my life that I just can’t stomach?”

Libra (September 23-October 22)
A passing fancy will in fact pass. Don’t go shopping without making a list first, and stick to it. Confusion and uncertainty are natural consequences of passing through a heavy fog, no matter how pleasant the view. Neptune and Venus are coming together to paint the whole town pink (exact this Friday the 13th), and to encourage your imagination. Just don’t let a dreamy vision run away with your common sense. Keep a sober mind and focus on the present moment.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Neptune’s fog goes something like this--Uncle John and Aunt Helen are making a surprise visit. They brought their pet parakeets, and you have two agile cats. But, they announce they’ve set up a generous trust fund for your child’s college education. Of course your feelings about their visit are confused. Don’t try to sort the details today, just stay focused on the big picture--everyone’s big heart (except maybe the cat’s!).

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Bad day for diets, or restricting yourself in any way. You actually want to go the opposite direction--having lots of everything. Blame it on Venus. She’s commissioned a work of art--Loving--that will fill your life if you let it. With love, there can never be too much. It’s only when Venus overindulges in little irresistible sweet treats that she’s trouble. Focus on the bigness of your heart. That’s the wizard’s true lesson.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Question, and question again, any judgement you come up with that implies you are not loved. It is false evidence appearing real, f.e.a.r. Right now the Sun, Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn produce a powerhouse (you) with a strong voice. Speak up. It's a day of self-indulgence, but your Capricorn common sense will win out. You do, quite literally, have the power.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
The Leo Moon is in a face-off with your beautiful Aquarian Venus--pleasant but with a challenge not to go too far, or to take anything personally. You might take offense from a sideways glance or frown that really has nothing to do with you. Resist that old Aquarius method for solving disputes--turning on your heels and walking! Taking the high road will be easy with pink cloud Neptune holding your hand. If you shop, make sure that shiny bauble, even though it’s on sale, is something you’ll still want tomorrow.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
You’re being haunted by past events stored up in your unconscious, but free to roam around and around your mind today. Do not listen to any voice implying you’re not good enough, rich enough, loved enough. Here’s how it sneaks up--you’re cooking a new dish when your partner walks into the kitchen with a sour expression, and you think he’s disgusted with your cooking, when in reality he’s furious with the ref’s call on that last football play. It has nothing to do with you. Repeat like a mantra.

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