The Stars Today: Temperance Alert!

More advice for the rest of the Holiday Season (what will get you through December and the New Moon on January 1st):

the Temperance card from the Tarot. Not in the sense of drinking or not drinking (I’m NOT even going to go there) — but in the sense of mixology.

Combining. Coordinating. Compromise. Mixing. A supersize angel whispering in your ear the instructions for the magic you must make. You aren’t alone in this.

Sometimes I get this card as a marriage card (really!) but the point I want to make right now is about the marriage inside you — balancing mind and emotions, yang and yin, body in balance.

I know I’ve been writing some pretty gloomy posts about the sky-energy we’re all under and the tendency of Cardinal signs to want to push through and take a stand and draw lines in the sand and up and leave and…

but I also feel Sun and Mercury in Capricorn will force us to slow down like Saturn – despite the attending squares and oppositions.

But MoonPluto – you may say – isn’t that the tension? The angst of the Uranus Pluto square stirred up by faster moving planets in Capricorn as well as Mars in Libra?

Yes. Of course. But the Moon is in Virgo today and I felt myself tune-in to the deep earth. That if you can stay low, low to the ground, and listening, you’ll make it out alive 😉 and smiling 🙂

Another topic:

on my Facebook last night I posted about love. I wrote this:

“Only just beginning to understand love. Not sure I really “get it” entirely but grateful for the experience.” And I meant it. I’m in a discovery process here.

An old friend of mine reminded me of a Wendell Berry poem called The Country of Marriage and a few others chimed in with their thoughts.

And what I also want to say is: it’s not what you think. Meaning, I haven’t shared a word yet about this experience. And I don’t even know if it can be described (as I experience it) but I will try! The words of others reflect their experience, not mine. But I hope to share mine more and more, in words, because the topic and the experience fascinates me.

AND I’m not saying that Berry describes my experience,  but I wanted to share a few of his words–

“Sometimes our life reminds me
of a forest in which there is a graceful clearing
and in that opening a house,
an orchard and garden,
comfortable shades, and flowers
red and yellow in the sun, a pattern
made in the light for the light to return to.
The forest is mostly dark, its ways
to be made anew day after day, the dark
richer than the light and more blessed,
provided we stay brave
enough to keep on going in.”

You can Google him to find the entire poem.

What thoughts are you thinking? About Christmas. About love.

So a client texted me this morning wondering if I had any SPECIALS going on. So I created one for her, and for anyone who wants to partake!
