“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
There is some danger of taking yesterday’s bit of optimism a bit too far today, spurred on by some wild expectations. We’ll do better today when we stay closer to home, tending to personal relationships with compassion and empathy, rather than seeking to build on some kind of expansive or ambitious, visionary goal. There are important discoveries to be made today regarding the importance of our close ties to others. This is actually an important element of our review of our past, our traditions, and our sense of personal and cultural traditions and boundaries. In essence, this is a time to review what we have previously considered being safe, in preparation to find a new sense of what is safe, understood in the context of the world that is developing before us.
The moon opposes Venus early this morning, leading to a need for more affection and attention than usual. Not getting enough of either could lead you to eat your feelings. Apply restraint if possible, but it’s also okay to treat yourself to that little bit of chocolate you’ve been saving.
You may find that your current relationships lack what you need in order to feel sustained at this time. Don’t be afraid to question if it’s enough for you. Today, it’s okay to do something nice for yourself, too. Rewards can help with an aspect like this, so buy yourself a treat or practice some self-care.
You most likely will have the confidence and drive to accomplish something you’ve been putting off for a while when the moon trines Mars, but it doesn’t come until the end of the day. You could already be in bed when inspiration strikes, so keep a notepad nearby just in case. Don’t shy away from being assertive during this transit. Say exactly what you want or need to say, and be concise. No holding back!
With all of that going on, plus the moon continuing to move through Sagittarius, you’ll be putting your needs first today. It’s a perfect day to end with a little pampering.
