How to get Saturn off your back

There’s a celestial party goin’ on right in Serious Saturn’s back yard. Never underestimate the feminine powers of the Moon, especially when she’s in Venus-ruled Libra. She’s seduced the Aquarius Sun over to dry out Saturn’s wet blanket. He’s charmed and disarmed by this Universal light of reason. The Sun also brought his sidekick, Messenger Mercury, to hone our mental signals into one harmonic chord. Easy listening. Until 2:02 PM, PST, when a Scorpio Moon shows up with her Shaman, thinking this is a spiritual retreat.
The Force of common sense is with you.

Spiritual Sunday, February 12, 2012

Aries (March 20-April 19)
The day starts around 10:00 AM, PST, with a gift from Mercury of fluidity of speech. Writing or giving a speech will flow easily from your pen or tongue. You have lots of self-discipline and devotion to working hard today. Just don’t get too serious, or your mood will turn somber. The energy shifts into the still-waters-run-deep Scorpio Moon at 2:02 PM, PST. You may notice the Scorpio traits in others of having definite, but hidden, motives. Try to stay away from suspicion, and hold onto your wonderful openness.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Keen business abilities (like doing your taxes) come your way beginning at 10:00 AM, PST. You feel clear-headed and you’re easily able to concentrate for long periods. Too much seriousness is hanging around as a temptation to feel lonely or depressed. All you have to do is use your excellent Taurus common sense, and keep your emotions from getting tied to past memories. A lovely swim in the deep waters of Shamanic Scorpio begins at 2:02 PM, PST. The next few days promise contentment and quiet reflection.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you feel a depressive, somber mood this morning, it’s a sign to lower your expectations. Your expectations get set when you buy-in to culture and conditioning, but every day the bar is raised, again and again, by countless blatant and subtle messages. Many of them from your own very active, multi-faceted mind! The distance between your expectations and reality is the measure of depression. This just kicks Saturn’s serious butt! Help for this kind of clear common sense is coming your way around 10:00 AM, PST. It’s very smooth sailing for you. Any left over seriousness lifts when the Moon enters Scorpio at 2:02 PM, PST. Calling all Shamans.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You’re better off if the “muchness” of your avalanche just rumbled on down the mountain. If so, you’ll just feel a somber aftermath, and time now to reflect. Every time you let go of the past, you lift the weight of seriousness off your mind. Around 10:00 AM, PST, you’ll get a boost to your already outstanding common sense. Clear thinking and concentration make light of your worries. Your mood improves even more when the Moon goes into your compatible sign Scorpio at 2:02 PM, PST, adding depth and desire for the next few days.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
You have enough airy, intellectual companions right now to start your own Think Tank. There’s one character in the mix who is way too serious, so keep your smiles up front and personal. You’re still the catalyst for initiating and creating something new. Mental Mercury is fine tuning the wavelengths, adding concentration and constructive thinking to your communications. You shift into the lab for more in-depth research when the Moon slides into Scorpio this afternoon. Just don’t let Scorpio’s hidden motives confuse or subdue your enthusiasm.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You know the expression, “my mind is a bad neighborhood, I should never go in there alone!” Today is a great day to use that as your mantra. Loneliness is your set-up for negative, too critical, thinking. Around 10:00 AM, PST, that wonderfully analytical mind of yours can tap into some clarity and increased ability to concentrate. Your mood is lifted by the Moon’s passage into compatible Scorpio at 2:02 PM, PST. Scorpio’s depth matches your precision, and your craftsmanship takes a quantum leap. You could build a new structure--inner or outer.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your graceful Libra Moon is running into more challenges today, which may tempt you into pessimistic thinking. Your life at home does not appear to hold the contentment and happiness you deserve. Wait. Clear headedness shows up early (10:00 AM, PST) to remind you that seriousness is a dis-ease. You’ve got just 4 hours to put yourself into positive motion, showing yourself that you cannot be “possessed” by a mood. You can think. At 2:02 PM, PST, the Moon shifts into Scorpio and you are a determined optimist.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
There’s been a lot of mental activity, mostly all around you rather than within. The morning has a serious edge, but you can avoid the somber mood by facing reality and accepting what is. You finally get a planet in your corner at 2:02 PM, PST, when the Moon swims into your deep waters. Your Shaman-like intuition is heightened, expanding your senses, including common sense, so you can “feel your way” through the next 3 days.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You’re still in the glow of the aftermath of Venus’ exciting eccentricities, and the surprises that continue to keep your life fresh. The air clears and you feel like you can concentrate again when Mental Mercury gets in sync with you at 10:00 AM, PST. However, Serious Saturn’s wet blanket creates a somber mood before it departs around 2:02 PM, PST, when the Moon changes demeanor and swims into the deep waters of Scorpio. She may try to serve up some revenge or jealousy--don’t swallow it!

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
The wet blanket seriousness of your ruling planet, Saturn, has been a challenge for you to maintain your wonderful humor. But please do, it’s your saving grace. At 10:00 AM, PST, you get help with concentration, and you can tap into good ol’ common sense, one of your best natural traits. When the Moon moves into Scorpio at 2:02 PM, PST, you get compatible boost to your will power. Both of these aspects, common sense and willpower, can help you choose your next right step.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Although you can feel the weight of the world on your shoulders this morning, you can count on your mental acuity to lift your spirits with a dose of common sense. Lots of planets are up in your rarefied air, helping you help others out of the density of taking things personally. Accurate reasoning and sensible communication about everyday matters are your gifts today. When the Moon slides into Scorpio at 2:02 PM, PST, you may be struck by the way motives go underground for the next few days, and people are just harder to read.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
At 10:00 AM, PST, there’s a break in the serious mood of the past few days when your mental wiring gets a clean, clear dose of common sense. You can shake off any negative thinking. It’s a chance to assess the effects of Neptune in Pisces that began February 4th. Vision or fog? Since you usually rely on intuition as one of your natural gifts, you can easily tune into the spiritual dimension of the Scorpio Moon (2:02 PM, PST). You can tap into the soul-mending spirituality of the ancient Shaman.
