Astrological Insight : I get a good feeling when looking at the positions of the planets this coming week. This has everything to do with the notion of balance and harmony. Since autumn 2015 when Jupiter opposed Neptune – the energy of the mutable cross has determined the collective sphere. Mutable effectively means opportunism, adaptability and the ability to shift, move and react to circumstances that are constantly morphing into something else. Mutability excels in uncertainty. We have just lived through an unprecedented collective 7x Uranus/Pluto square and the fall-out has been huge: some structures crumbled (banks, businesses, countries, governments, pensions,services) and authority has clearly been undermined (Snowden, Blockupy, Anonymous). Many people no longer trust their governments or their politicians. Mutable -post Uranus square Pluto – energy is kind of what we are left with before the dust settles …

fairy bloomEarly Monday morning the Moon in Pisces conjuncts Neptune and sextiles the Taurus Sun. It’s also within orb of a square to Saturn in Sagittarius. The Taurus Sun in turn begins a quincunx to Saturn. There are limitations that affect the mood, but there’s a way around. (…)

Aries
Make an effort to stay out of other peoples’ karma this week. There are a lot of worthy causes out there that may attract your strength and desire to defend the weak; but take a really close look before you get involved. The predator may likely be the victim and vice versa; get all of the facts and examine them in order and in detail before volunteering any of your resources.  If you are wondering why someone hasn’t made their feelings known for you remember that they may not know that you are either interested or available for love or friendship; quit waiting and make your status and intentions known to them
Taurus
You may feel more comfortable and confident than you have in a long time due to Venus’ entrance into your sun sign; but don’t forget to

New moon in Taurus astrology chart 2016The new moon at 16 degrees Taurus takes place on Friday, May 6th, in the middle of the day.  The Sun and Moon are conjunct Mercury, but more importantly, they enjoy significant support from Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn.

On top of that, the Moon takes no hard aspects at all. All together we’ll have six bodies in the Earth signs at this time.(…)

love vintage magazineDear Elsa,

I’ve lived a very humble life for the most part. I had my son as a teen, and I worked while going to school to get college educated…the result is I’ve worked myself into a position that is quite impressive within my company after 28 years. The one thing that still eludes me is love… I know I have walls up because of my painful past. I’m hard to get to know (scorpio rising). That said, I have Uranus conjunct my Venus coming up in May-Sept and I’m wondering if that could be a breakthrough for me? Is there hope for me in love?

planets 3DI didn’t realize these days passed without my posting. I had the newsletters going. I think people worry about me when I disappear these days. I’m sorry about that – I’m okay!

I caught up today, which is ironic seeing that Mercury turned retrograde. We had all that Frustration – Retrograde Planets around here. Broken machines!(…)

ElsaElsa » Desperate Co-dependence in Relationship

April 29th, 2016 @ 11:32 am by ElsaElsa

Dear Elsa,

I seem to have trouble picking the right guys. When we meet, things get intense pretty quickly – and then the guy starts pulling away. I’ve been trying to lay off a bit and be a bit more laid back in relationships, but they’re still not going any better.

A few months ago, I met a super-cute Leo and true to pattern, things got intense right away. Then he backed off, but he still is hanging around in the background. I can’t tell if he’s interested or not, but since he keeps kissing me, I think he’s at least a bit interested.

Also, if I back off, he moves forward. Then I move forward, he backs off again. This has been going on for three months and it’s driving me nuts! Plus, there are always a lot of

warning stage coneWay back in 1985 I saw a movie that was more than I bargained for, “After Hours”. It was weirder than expected, but it was engaging. It was a late-night, Kafka-esque romp – or nightmare, depending on which way you chose to see it. This weekend’s sky reminds me SO much of that movie. (…)

While searching for a painter, illustrator, photographer or sculptor to feature today I came across Mary Petty’s name in a list of April 29 birthdays. She was one of The New Yorker’s cover artists and cartoonists for many years.

From a 1994 article by Victoria Donohoe, Inquirer Art Critic:
It’s said that the decades after the Civil War in America produced, in a rising level of prosperity,…
