Cosmic Weather:

“Our abilities to understand, adjust, and change make us wise.” – Debashish Mridha M.D.

Moon in Virgo:

Don’t you just love to hear the phrase, “May I help who’s next?” when you’re the one who’s next in line? Especially if you’ve been waiting seemingly forever to be waited on? Anyway, today has this same kind of feel to it. Sort of like we’re having to stand in line, conduct official business. Undertake revisions, rewrites, edits, etc. with respect to our projects or plans before we’re allowed to bust out of the gate. Even then, we’re likely not going to be busting out of anything now, but rather moving ahead at more of a slow, cautious pace. The Moon is still in perfecting Virgo, and Mama Virgo is doing her thing! Committed to continuing her heroic efforts to whip us into winning shape! Plus, with Luna’s trine to transforming Pluto in Capricorn, later today (8:51 pm), it could be she may be able to work a few miracles with us! 

Sun semi-square Saturn:

Taskmaster Saturn is also apparently wanting to encroach a bit on our parade today. Or, at least, seemingly, is trying his best to do so, in the form of a semi-square from the Sun in Pisces to Saturn in Capricorn. In a way, this aspect also plays right into the hands of the corrective Virgo Moon energy to the extent that it can make us feel, on the shadow side, that we’re not good enough as we are, for one reason or another. That in order for us to be deemed successful, sexy, or whatever, we must also strive to conform to some kind of hallowed cultural yardstick of what is uniformly exemplary or acceptable. The Sun-Saturn energy possibly attempting to stir the pot of some of our prior societal or familial conditioning, with Saturn, of course, making a case for sticking with the status quo. Doing things the way that they have always been done, if only out of expediency. Sometimes, too, we choose to cling to the ways of the past because of our fear of change, or fear of failure. Anyway… So we may have to do some kind of retro dance now, it seems. Some tippytoeing back into our earlier chapters to review a few of the pages. Including pondering, perhaps, some of what we’ve been taught, or maybe bought into, along the way. Maybe even performing one or two quickie autopsies of our previous actions or life phases, but only as a way of garnering insights for our present-day world, and future. We don’t want to get too entangled by the cobwebs of the past now!

“One day, we will all be caught in our own web.” Anthony T. Hincks

*All time EST.

Questions for Today: How do you think your past (Saturn) has prepared you for what you’re dealing with now? How do you think your past is maybe holding you back? What has disappointment taught you? What most needs to be put in order in your life now (Virgo), so you can move on?

Enjoy your day!

Today’s Astrology February 19, 2019: Full Moon in Virgo

Cosmic Weather:

“When your imagination’s at work, your dreams make sense.” Anthony T. Hincks

Have you ever struggled to put something together, manually? Let’s say maybe a paperclip. And, you all have these supposed “easy-to-assemble” instructions, right before you, but you still can’t figure out how to assemble the darn thing? Well, in a left-handed way, I guess that’s sort of how I feel about today’s Full Moon in instructional and corrective Virgo. As I was meditating on the meaning of this lunation this morning, in preparation for this blog, all of a sudden, I got inundated with an avalanche of assorted details. Including receiving a hallucinatory vision (Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces) of a 32-page colored report, with perfect margins, of everything that is wrong in my present-day life! It’s like, how in the heck do I even begin to right the ship? 🙂

Virgo the Virgin, as you probably know, is number six in the zodiac lineup. Or, is midway through it, in other words. Kind of tucked away in obscurity. (Where it frickin’ belongs!) Of course, usually when you get to the middle of anything is often when the plot thickens or twists, including when some things may begin to break down. Even in the body, Virgo governs the intestines, which are located in the middle region of the body, and also where food particles are broken down for digestion. Too, if your diet is not that good and you’re eating a lot of the wrong things, such as maybe stuffing your face with pimento cheese sandwiches and washing it all down with a gallon of Irish whiskey for breakfast, your stomach and intestines will probably let you know, pretty fast, that you’re screwing up. And you’ll, no doubt, be receiving several lashes for penance while having to listen to Virgoan recorded messages prompting you to eat your dang vegetables instead. Including yucky broccoli!

Moving right along.

Trying to keep everything very simple and orderly for you here, today. Because we do have, again, intellectual Mercury, the Virgo Full Moon’s official ruler, exactly conjunct psychedelic, mushroom-eating Neptune now. Folks, there’s no wait out of this one, unfortunately. I’m sorry.

Waiting any moment to be taken away by space aliens in little white coats…

Yes, with an illuminating Full Moon in troubleshooting Virgo, at this moment in time, we’re essentially checking under the hood. Seeing how everything is working. Or not working. Maybe we need a smidgeon of antifreeze under our arms. Or on our hips. Or our lips, perhaps, need to be pumped up or inflated with a pound or two of more air to better resemble Kim Kardashian’s. Just typical body maintenance stuff.

But, wait! There’s more! That was just for starters! 🙂

Then there’s the whole other matter of the cleanaholic Virgo Full Moon likely wanting to invade our home space today! Holding us hostage, no doubt, with an industrial-sized vacuum cord, tied around our neck, and a Swiffer Sweeper thrusted under our arm so we can gather up all the dirt, and other crap, that’s been accumulating, exponentially, since who knows when. The fact is, too, we haven’t really been able to see any of this gook, all that well, until this god-awful Virgo Full Moon shows up! Plus, it’s a darn SuperMoon to boot! Making its impact that much worse!  Now, the darn dustballs are glaring at us! The cobwebs are staging a Uranian-type revolt! And, the dirty laundry in the clothes hamper is starting to come to life, twisting and shouting, and foaming at the mouth. Kinda like Linda Blair in the Exorcist!

Well, maybe it’s not quite that bad.

But, then there’s the matter of…

And then…

Oh, no!

Please, please! Can’t somebody pull down the frickin’ shade!

I can’t take it anymore!

I swear, I’ll eat my vegetables! 🙂

Enjoy your day! Full Moon Blessings to you!

Astrology February 18, 2019: Venus Conjunct Saturn, Chiron in Aries

Tags

, , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.” – Peter Drucker

The day begins with the empowering Sun in Aquarius sextile progressive Uranus in Aries (2:54 am). This aspect tends to foster opportunities for innovation, taking new approaches, breaking with convention, and overall expressions of individuality. Since this is also a waning sextile from the Sun to Uranus, it could be that we are seeing some past actions of a Uranian nature coming to a culmination or fruition now. Additionally, this alignment favors technological or scientific breakthroughs, group involvement, and or getting behind or supporting ideological causes that we feel very passionate about.

Venus Conjunct Saturn (5:52 am): Venus in Capricorn today activates, again, the more long-term Saturn-Neptune sextile that I wrote about yesterday when Venus sextiled Neptune. Venus conjunct Saturn is an excellent follow-up to that aspect, as it allows us to become very grounded in our outlook about the physical world, including our financial picture, our possessions, our love relationships. This is a perfect day to reflect upon what it is that we really value and want around us. Also, what we need to release from our lives. In some cases, Venus-Saturn conjunctions can also coincide with actual breakups or separations from others. When this happens, it’s normally because those alliances have run their natural course and it’s time to move on. In general, with Venus-Saturn aspects we are working to stabilize or firm up or better our circumstances. This kind of planetary energy allows us to manage our resources, including teaching us how to do more with less. Overall, we want to really feel a sense of richness or prosperity around us now, a sense of security, be it emotional security or material security. We also want commitment and focus from others. Yesterday, the Venus-Neptune hopefully made us more aware of the non-material resources that we are in possession of, such as our creativity, our vision, our spiritual linkage to the Divine.

Sun enters Pisces (6:04 pm) – This annual journey of the Sun into more spiritual, compassionate Pisces, serves to remind us, in part, that there is more to our world than what meets the eye. Pisces, as the last sign of the zodiac, symbolizes an amalgamation of all that has come before it. It represents the last stage of our developmental journey. The illuminating Sun in Pisces usually marks a period when we are naturally drawn to turning within in a bid to process or integrate all that we’ve been through. There’s also usually greater feeling and consideration for the plights of others now.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”  Pierre Tielhard de Chardin

Chiron leaves Pisces for Aries today: Chiron, the Wounded Warrior, moving into Aries, the sign of our self-identity, suggests, among other things, that we have an opportunity to not only go deeper with discovering our own self-truth but also now have a chance to stand in it, which sometimes can take a lot of courage to do. Chiron typically makes us aware of our greatest emotional vulnerabilities, or where we may still be feeling the sting of old wounds, and, in the process, it offers us a way to heal ourselves and move on. “Freeing yourself was one thing, claiming ownership of that freed self was another.” Toni Morrison. Chiron will remain in Aries until 2027. I’ll be writing much more about Chiron in Aries in the future here.

Lastly, the Moon is also still in theatrical Leo, all day, allowing us to do things up with lots of flair or fanfare. The Moon’s trine to optimistic Jupiter in Sagittarius this evening (7:00 pm) is also excellent for entertaining, mixing with people from diverse backgrounds, conducting business meetings, and philanthropical gestures.

*All times EST.

Enjoy your Monday! Hope it’s a great week ahead for you! Tomorrow we also have the healing Full Moon in Virgo!

Cosmic Weather:

“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” Rumi

Have you ever gone to that proverbial drawing board with the best of intentions to be creative or imaginative, and absolutely zilch happened? It’s like you suddenly morph into a zombie or something and you end up just sitting there, twiddling your thumbs. If you can even muster that much! What’s even worse is when you look all around you, and you see all these cool things created by other people! and you’re thinking to yourself, “Why in the world did I have to get stuck with such a lousy, god-awful imagination? Is it possible payback or retribution, perhaps, for an ancient karmic misdeed, or something? 🙂

Isn’t it also humbling and mind-boggling, too, when you step outside into nature and you see all this brilliantly choreographed magnificence and beauty everywhere? Or, you look into the heavens through a telescope, and it’s as if the complicated universe never stops unfolding! There is just so much amazing mystery and wonderment surrounding us, all the time, and yet many of us never really even think much about it because we are often so preoccupied with all the daily, mundane, personal stuff. Yet, we also have it so much better, in many ways, with respect to countless others who lived before us, in other time periods, who often had to struggle to just make it to age 30 or 40.

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” Sylvia Plath

And yet, regardless of everything, hope springs eternal for another glorious chance to possibly shine or dazzle, or to come into our own, in our optimal roles as co-creators with the universe! Or, so it seems, at least for today anyway, with sweet, artistic Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, forming a lovely sextile aspect with compassionate Neptune, the official Kingpin of Imagination (3:45 am).  The Venus-Neptune hookup today also activating the ongoing, more long-term Saturn-Neptune sextile that has been in operation since the end of January and will continue in effect, on and off, for most of this year. This aspect between these two planetary heavyweights, Saturn and Neptune, is, theoretically, ideal for helping us turn our dreams, creativity, and visions (Neptune) into reality or tangible form (Saturn).

*All times EST

Enjoy your day!

Today’s Astrology February 16, 2019: Cancer Moon Opposes Saturn and Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.” Maya Angelou

Isn’t it fascinating how time seems to pass by so much more slowly when we are younger? Then, when we are older, especially, perhaps, into our fifties and sixties, it just seems to fly by! We may, of course, wage noble efforts, periodically, to attempt to slow time down, by filling our days with all kinds of, what we hope will be, momentous or memorable activities, in a bid, consciously or subconsciously, to make our lives more interesting, meaningful and impactful. But, nevertheless, quietly in the background, there is no denying. The steady, Saturnian tick, tick, tick of the clock, marches on!

When the Moon is passing through maternal Cancer, the sign of our roots, as it is doing so today, we often find ourselves more naturally drawn to matters of the past, that seemingly endless region of our lives where the hands of time are often rather blurred or imprecise. The sound of the tick, more soothingly muted. No doubt, for our mental health! Sometimes, too, when we are recalling a good time in the past, this retro visitation can be like returning back to a favorite restaurant and ordering something tried and true from a menu that we know we already like. We just order the same ole’ same ole’ and, voila, something magical happens and everything is, seemingly, peachy keen again with our present-day world. We have enjoyably dined on the reliable fare of the past and we know that we can handle whatever it is that is before us, as we are survivors, by golly! 🙂

On this Saturday in mid-February, Lady Luna in Cancer is one very busy chick! Having meetups with Mercury, Venus, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto. Yes, it appears that Missy Silvery Night Sky has overbooked herself, but there is not much to do about it now. Also, how boring life would be without a little bit of drama. Right? Okay. So Luna’s conversation with Chronos-ruling Saturn could (12:40 pm) could get a little problematic for us. But, mainly only if we allow ourselves to wallow in a woe-is-me, scarcity mindset. But do we really need to go there? No, we don’t! How about channeling Saturn’s resilience and persistence instead? Yup! A no-brainer! Then there is, of course, the matter of the Moon’s opposition to underworld-ruling Pluto (9:39 pm). A time when the darkness really begins to descend! So, granted, things might be a little scary now, but, unless we have not paid our electric bill, what is to stop us from flipping a switch and turning on a darn light? In fact, we may want to shine a giant spotlight into the whole dark mess now and see what turns up! Let Pluto know, in no uncertain terms, that we are not afraid to glimpse and embrace our very own groundhog shadow, replete with all of its custom-designed bells and whistles. Piece of cake! In fact, make it a huge piece of dark chocolate cake with super-duper blood-red cherries on it! 🙂

Today’s Astrology February 15, 2019: Sun Inconjuncts The North Node

Cosmic Weather:

“We spend much of the first half of our lives trying to build internal models that fit the world and much of the last half of our lives trying to adjust the world so it fits the inner models.” – Bruce Wexler

The empowering Sun in individualistic Aquarius quinqunx to the futuristic North Node in self-protective Cancer suggests that there is possibly some kind of disconnect taking place now, internally, between the outward path by which we have chosen to define ourselves versus how we are actually feeling inside about that role. Could it be that we have gotten too much into our head (detached Sun in Aquarius) and now we need to get more into the realm of our gut (NN in Cancer) to balance things out and move on to the next level?

No telling really how the pieces of our personal puzzle may have gotten askew. Perhaps we have become disenchanted with the causes (Aquarius) that we have been espousing and that is weighing us down? Or maybe our friendships or group involvements (Aquarius) need to be tweaked as they are no longer meaningful enough for us anymore? Maybe we are also spending too much time on social media or the internet (Aquarius)? Living in a virtual La La Land and we need to simply refocus our attention now on more of the grounding basics (Cancer). Such as tending to what is going on within our homes and with our families, including thinking about such practical things as the type of food that we are putting into our bodies, and where it is coming from. Or taking notice of such stuff as what really moves us, emotionally, as we go about our day. Mars entrance into placid Taurus yesterday, a location it will stay in for the next six weeks, will likely be a big boon to us here, in the coming days, in that it should help to restore our natural sense of equilibrium as we thoroughly evaluate now what it is that we really want to put our energy into, or conclude what it is that we really value, and omit from our journey what it is that is no longer needed for our own, very special rose parade.

Cosmic Weather:

“It’s the steady, quiet, plodding ones who win in the lifelong race.” Robert W. Service

Mars exits new beginnings Aries today and sets up shop in stable, persistent Taurus the Bull (5:51 am), where it will remain until March 31st.  In Taurus, Mars energy is softened, a bit, as this sign is ruled by sweet, receptive Venus. Whereas Mars in Aries was also all about doing, initiating, and exploring, Mars in Taurus now is centered on beingness, rootedness, and acquisition. Mars learns patience and purposefulness in Taurus and, likewise, we are more apt to want to take our time now in executing matters, and do not want to be rushed. We also want to first understand the tangible value of doing something before we commit to doing it. Mars in Taurus now is an excellent time for putting the finishing touches on the projects that we began while Mars was in Aries, although today, with Mars making a semi-square with vague Neptune, we may potentially have a somewhat harder time getting motivated, or staying on track. Sometimes, too, with Mars-Neptune alignments, our physical energy is somewhat diminished so getting more rest may be something that is very beneficial for us now. Additionally, Mercury in Pisces is forming a semi-square to Pluto in Capricorn today. This can help to mentally focus our thoughts in a particular direction. The waxing Moon is also in curious Gemini, all day, and squaring expansive Jupiter in Sagittarius, so there can be an increased desire for learning or seeking out new information, new horizons.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”  Benjamin Franklin

Famous People with Mars in Taurus: Melissa Gilbert, Ginger Rogers, J. Edgar Hoover, Shirley MacLaine, Kanye West, Tony Bennett

On This Day in History: On February 14, 1931, The original “Dracula” film starring Bela Lugosi as the titular vampire, is released. On that day, pioneering Mars was retrograde at 0 degrees of theatrical Leo! Bela Lugosi (b. 10/20/1882) also had, in his horoscope, transiting Saturn in Capricorn exactly trine to his natal Neptune in Taurus, a powerful planetary configuration for manifesting (Saturn) our dreams (Neptune). Neptune also rules film. By the way, natally, Lugosi’s assertive Mars was also in passionate, mysterious Scorpio, the sign of death and rebirth.

“The love-bite, it is the beginning. You will be irresistible.” Bela Lugosi

Astrology February 12, 2019: Mars Conjuncts Uranus in Aries

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.” Carl Jung

With motivating Mars and spontaneous Uranus coming to a conjunction, early tomorrow morning (1:19 am), at 29 degrees of trailblazing Aries, we may feel more of an urgent desire to take some kind of finalizing action(s) now, in a bid to change or reshuffle our world, or to attempt to deal with ongoing or fast-developing situations. Embracing new approaches, or fashioning new responses, may especially be what is required of us here. When planets reach the end of a zodiacal sign, there’s also usually a culmination of activities, or a type of summation occurring, of whatever has transpired while the planet(s) has been progressing through the sign. It’s also possible that the kind of action (Mars) we take now will be something that serves to make us feel freer or more unencumbered (Uranus) as individuals. Or that, perhaps, helps to further showcase our individuality, or unique achievements.

Ideally, on a collective level, actions may also be taken now that are seemingly more liberating or cutting-edge for the collective as a whole, as Uranus is a transpersonal planet that can affect major societal or cultural changes or reforms. Additionally, Mars-Uranus energy can also denote taking measures to preserve our existing freedoms. Mars enters earthy, stabilizing Taurus on Valentine’s Day, and Uranus re-enters Taurus on March 6th. after initially wading into the sign for a few months, last year.

On the shadow side, Mars conjunct Uranus can sometimes trigger greater feelings of restlessness, impulsiveness, and impatience. It can foster unpredictability, in general. Collectively, it’s associated with uprisings, revolts, and or a general state of lawlessness. As a quality or kind of energy, Mars-Uranus is often described as being highly combustible in nature, either in a literal sense, such as a fire or an explosion. Or, symbolically, such as blowing our fuses, temperment-wise. At any rate, it’s probably not a good time to tinker around with electrical wiring for amusement now, unless you know what you are doing. Even then…

Earth is a small town with many neighborhoods in a very big universe.” Ron Garan

On May 12, 1930, Mars and Uranus were also exactly conjunct in pioneering Aries when The Adler Planetarium opened to the public in Chicago, Illinois. The opening of The Adler Planetarium was a very big deal, at the time, because it was the very first planetarium in the Western Hemisphere.  Uranus, as the modern day ruler of Aquarius, governs such things as astronomy, astrophysics, and space travel. Interestingly, retired astronaut Mark Kelly also announced today that he is running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona, potentially injecting a “hands-on” otherworldly view of things into the public arena. 

“Man has gone out to explore other worlds and other civilizations without having explored his own labyrinth of dark passages and secret chambers, and without finding what lies behind doorways that he himself has sealed.” – Stanislaw Lem

Today’s Astrology February 7, 2019: Sun Sextiles Jupiter, Mercury Sextiles Mars

Cosmic Weather:

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

It’s a very cool, inspiring day in the heavens above! Hopefully, this will also translate into a plethora of inspiration for all of us, down below, on Mother Earth. We have two big planetary aspects especially impacting us now: The Sun in Aquarius is sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius (7:33 pm), and Mercury in Aquarius is sextile to Mars in Aries (8:25 pm).

The Sun-Jupiter aspect is a fabulous fortifier for our own sense of faith or belief in ourselves. It helps us to have more enthusiasm for what we’re doing. It makes us more excited and confident about our own prospects for a bright future. We’re also more likely to be open to collaborating with others with divergent viewpoints, as we potentially have a better grasp of the bigger picture of how everything can work together now for the common good. Additionally, the Sun in bohemian Aquarius also encourages us to accept or embrace our own individuality, our own sense of self, and to not worry, unduly, about what others think of us.

Mercury sextile Mars, meanwhile, also helps our thoughts and ideas to flow very freely and fast today. Even more importantly, we’re more likely to act (Mars) on our ideas now, as Mars in assertive Aries enjoys putting things into motion, into taking the lead. This is super good energy for any intellectual work that we may have to do, for communicating, writing, problem-solving, brainstorming, coming up with new ideas. Also for drawing up and or signing contracts or agreements. Yours truly is signing some important paperwork today that has been on my radar screen for several weeks. Looking forward to finally putting my John Hancock on the dotted line! 🙂

The Moon is also in soothing Pisces, all day, which should be a nice, supportive backdrop for the other more active energies of the day. The Pisces Moon tends to make us more reflective and sympathetic. We may want to schedule some alone time for ourselves now, to maybe commune with nature. Or to, perhaps, engage in some quiet prayer, meditation, or reading. The Moon in Pisces will sextile transformational Pluto in Capricorn, later this afternoon (5:13 pm), and then go void of course until tomorrow morning, when it enters pioneering Aries (9:34 am).

*All times are EST.

On This Day in History: On February 7, 1964, The Beatles visit the U.S for the very first time. They were met by 3,000 screaming fans at Kennedy Airport! The Beatles had just scored their first No. 1 U.S. hit six days before with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” In the sky that day, the Sun and Mars were conjunct in innovative, electrifying Aquarius suggesting something radically new and different was afloat in the collective. The Sun was also just separating from a sextile to propitious Jupiter in trailblazing Aries, the very same planetary aspect that we have today, except Jupiter was in Aries then.

Enjoy your day!

Cosmic Weather:

We have more success if we think of a project as a group effort, find partners and build a coalition. There is always strength in numbers.” Mark Randall

The Moon continues in humanitarian Aquarius, the sign of group involvement, throughout the day. It then enters impressionable Pisces, later tonight (9:02 pm). The Moon is still in the New phase of its monthly cycle, following the New Moon lunation in Aquarius, yesterday afternoon. And, if you haven’t already done so, there’s also still time today to set your New Moon intentions for the month, especially while the Moon is still in the sign of Aquarius. From the New Moon to the Full Moon, of course, is when we should begin seeing our intentions begin to take shape. Especially if we have added some legwork to them! The late great Wayne Dyer (b. 5/10/40) once said, regarding intentions: “You get what you intend to create by being in harmony with the power of intention, which is responsible for all of creation.” 

The Moon in Aquarius makes a very nice sextile to energetic Mars in Aries this morning (8:49 am). This is very motivating yang energy that helps to get our day off to an enterprising start. We’re also acting with greater self-confidence and self-assuredness now. The Moon will sextile progressive Uranus in Aries, later this evening (6:59 pm). This is excellent for experimentation, for changing up our routine, or for hanging out with a new crowd. Today’s lunar exchange with both Mars and Uranus is also a test run or preview, perhaps, for the high-voltage Mars-Uranus conjunction in Aries, which is occurring, the middle of next week.

*All times EST.

On This Day in History: On February 5, 1922, The Reader’s Digest, an American general-interest family magazine, is published for the first time. Jupiter, which rules publishing, had just, interestingly enough, stationed retrograde in balancing Libra on February 3rd. And, communicator Mercury, actually turned retrograde in creative Pisces on February 5th! Yet, despite these two retrograde planets, The Reader’s Digest is still around, nearly 100 years later! So that just goes to show that just because a planet is retrograde, it doesn’t necessarily dampen prospects for success. So many of us tend to wig out whenever we see a planet going retrograde, especially the planet Mercury. It’s like we feel we can’t do anything or take action in the outside world until it goes direct again. Not true!

The empowering Sun and relationship Venus were also exactly conjunct in innovative Aquarius then. Sun-Venus configurations are, among other things, good for popularity, especially with women. This influence would have also been good for the creative content of the magazine. Abundant Jupiter was also trining the Sun and Venus conjunction. No doubt, another factor in the publication’s long-term success. Do any of you still read the Reader’s Digest? 

Anyway, enjoy your day! Happy Chinese New Year! It’s the Year of the Pig, which, in Chinese culture, is associated with wealth and prosperity! Amen to that! 🙂
