Why is Monday laundry day?

The heaviest dark cloud does not have enough substance to stop the fall of a button. This moody Monday earns it’s reputation for the blues. Seriously Stern Saturn is overhead in a thin but big black cloud. The celestial idea is that once in awhile we need to clean up our act, apologize to the friend who’s toes you stepped on, and generally put orderliness at the top of our values list. Does this have to be a gloomy task? You can do it to music, while humming or singing out loud. You can fold a piece of laundry while dancing toward your dresser drawer. Saturn doesn’t make fun, but he can’t stop it either.
The Force of feelings is with you.

Everybody works on Monday, January 9, 2012.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Put on the theme song from Rocky, you’re best running shoes, and start climbing those steps! Physical activity is a great way to handle the would-be wet blanket from Saturn, who, let’s face it, is a lonely guy and way too serious. Keep your worries light. Write them on paper, set a match to it, and viola--they all go up in smoke. You can do this in your imagination too, probably safer. Either way, guaranteed happiness.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
With Messenger Mercury now in your harmonic earth sign, Capricorn, you have a prolonged period (through February 13th) of mental stimulation and clear thinking. Ideas of how to achieve your goals in life will just pop into your head unsolicited. Keep the vibe positive by remembering how lovable you are. Affirm this by sending messages of love to others. Never give away your heart, but share it with as many people as possible.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
All this week, culminating on Friday the 13th, you’ll hear the calling of your most creative, loving self. You’re happiest when doing things for those you love. Today may drag a few too many obligations with it, but by lowering your expectations you unburden yourself and avoid disappointment. Focus on maximizing your talents, your potential, and bringing the balancing act between home life and career closer to the desires of your true self. Sparkle returns this evening to light your fire.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You may be attracted to people who are quite different from yourself. Today is the classic “opposites attract” kind of day, and you are likely to meet someone new. The Moon’s in your corner until late this evening, coaching you to show your individuality. Dare to be different and speak your mind--it will go well. All your communications have taken a lucky turn. Your words are golden through January 27th, so take advantage of this energy to get ahead.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
It’s a spinnaker kind of day. Uranus, the god of lightening-quick changes, is the only planet in a fire sign right now. It may not feel like the wind is filling your sails, so focus on provisions. Put your needs in order and stock up on items that are distinctly you. Uranus will offer sudden opportunities to expand your understanding by learning something new. Your thoughts catch fire again after 8: 35 this evening. Tuesday and Wednesday will find you moving fast.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your To-Do list may be ridiculously long, but you have the energy to match it! Issues related to your “duties” at home versus your career are creating a tension that fuels your actions. Stop and get clear about what matters most to you (you may have to do this more than once today) and stick with your own priorities. Harmony will come from satisfying your heart’s desires, and peace will come from sharing that with someone you love.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Don’t let the brief passing of a dark cloud mar your day. You’d probably rather stay home this morning and catch up with yourself versus the inbox at the office. When you think about your relationships, focus on seeing the good in the other person. Make a list of their kindnesses toward you. Hold this in mind. Actively lower your expectations for the next four days, so that Friday the 13th will have room for an inspired vision.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Stay curious, and add a little detective work to it. Take whatever was revealed by yesterday’s full Moon light, something new that you learned, and act on it. You have no resistance today to anything you try to do. It’s a very pleasant time when you feel in harmony with yourself. Your energy is high and flowing in the direction you want.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
If you feel like the fire went out, and your mood’s a bit chilly, just know that the spark returns late this evening. Meanwhile, it’s laundry day. Clean out the file drawer and arrange things so you can find them quickly. A moody Monday to be with yourself is just what the celestial doctor ordered. Your shoring up the home front, consolidating the budget, to be ready for Tuesday and Wednesday’s rush.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Keep track of what emerged for your in the light of yesterday’s full Moon. Notice, and look for, ways to develop cooperation through sharing with others. This is a time of golden opportunities to express yourself clearly, to stand out and distinguish yourself and your unique individuality. It’s often hard to balance home life and career challenges, but you can resolve tensions in this area now by recognizing and honoring the differences.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Expect epiphanies. Throughout this week, and culminating on Friday the 13th, you are energized by giving of yourself to those you love, and finding a heightened spirituality. The goddess of love in your sign is adding grace to your ability to love unconditionally. Today is briefly dim, and communications can get confused. Spend some time actively affirming how much you are loved. It’s more true than you realize.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Sailing effortlessly on harmonious emotional waters makes this a very productive day. A new love, or new friend, who is very different from yourself may appear. It’s very easy to take a necessary risk right now, one that will lead to better expression of your creativity. Take advantage of the harmonious energy of the Moon in your corner by telling a deeper truth about yourself. It will bridge any gap between your work life and your need for a safe, secure home base.

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