May 12, Thursday. The Moon is in Virgo all day. Transiting Mars is now in earthy Taurus and the knock-em-dead energy should slow down to that of a plodding plow horse instead of a race horse. That’s good news because it gives us a ‘time-out’ to assimilate and digest and then integrate what we’ve been hammered with since January of 2011. Phew. As if to agree with this new strategy, Mars is sextile Neptune today, a kind of laid back, creative, spacy, dreamy kind of day, instead. What a shift and change! Many people won’t want to work, the call of the out doors, whether a walk in a park, a serious hike, sitting by a pond of water feeding the duckies or just ‘being’ is powerful. This is a day of incomparable creativity. And meditation is going to awesome, too. Take time out, if you can, to do exactly that: rest and relax. Dream. Envision you in a better future, possibly. On the down side, a day of utter confusion, problems with spam, fraud and falling for phishing. Be watchful of all of this on Facebook and via emails. You can get sucked in without realizing it. The Moon trines the Sun in the evening just before the luminary goes void-of-course. There is a pleasant and upbeat, happy sense around all of us today. As if things are in alignment and humming right along without too much input from us. It’s an “in-the-Flow” day when all seems ‘right’ in your individual world. Enjoy this respite. We’ve earned it and we need it. A Cosmic vacation day.
