“The things other people have put into my head, at any rate, do not fit together nicely, are often useless and ugly, are out of proportion with one another, are out of proportion with life as it really is outside my head.”

Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Breakfast of Champions

Today’s gifts are obscured somehow, surrounded by confusing subterfuge and potentially misleading interactions or false leads. It isn’t that the information isn’t there, only that our ability to put the pieces together seems to be inadequate somehow. We may actually be looking well past the obvious in an effort to find something exciting, new, or different. Nonetheless, there are indeed gifts available, particularly patience and steady, determined effort. In essence, the danger today is that we waste our energy looking for unrealistic and unattainable prizes when there is value in what is right before us — the simple, everyday gifts of life.

The waning Taurus moon sextiles Neptune this afternoon, and the mood is sensual, indulgent, romantic, dreamy, laid-back, creative, and productive. It’s a matter of how you channel the energy.

But with the moon in its waning phase, you’re in a process of emptying out. Consciously release any past disappointments or illusions that prevent you from seeing the reality of a situation.

The moon trines Pluto tonight and Jupiter overnight, offering a powerful, emotional release and transformation. This is a chance to uproot conditioning, especially surrounding success, failure, and stuck energy that prevents you from making progress or reaching for an opportunity.
