“Everything in excess is opposed to nature.” Hippocrates

Patrice’s “Cosmic Word of The Day”: Excess

n. ik-ses, ek-ses; adj., v.ek-ses, ik-ses

noun 1) the fact of exceeding something else in amount or degree; 2) an extreme or excessive amount or degree; superabundance 3) going beyond what is customary or proper

origin: 1350-1400 < L excessus departure, digression

Cosmic weather: I believe the “excess” pig photo above pretty much sums up the cosmic forecast for us today. Enjoy your day, but be careful of excessive behaviors now with the already abundant Jupiter made even more over-sized with a tight square from the Sun. This may be especially the case when the Moon switches from controlled Scorpio to overly optimistic, unrestrained Sagittarius (2:11 pm EDT). Jupiter is the planet that rules Sagittarius!

“‘Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide.” Cicero

“Tis not the eating, nor ’tis not the drinking that is to be blamed, but the excess.” John Selden

“Excess of sorrow laughs, excess of joy weeps.” William Blake

News Update: The Gulf oil leak is back to gushing out full force with the Sun square Jupiter today. The temporary cap BP had earlier put on the pipe under the Mars-Neptune opposition developed problems and had to be removed. Sun-Jupiter can be a wicked waste of resources and a very difficult influence to stem, even though Jupiter is considered a “benefic” planet.

U.S. Gen. Petraeus is poised to take over command of the Aghan War after Pres. Obama accepted the resignation of Gen. McChrystal who made disparaging remarks about the Administration in a Rolling Stone story.

Interestingly, news of this RS story broke yesterday with the probing Scorpio Moon square to both Jupiter and Uranus in Aries the sign of the military and war efforts.  Jupiter-Uranus can bring sudden surprises and monumental discoveries, and in this case, that is exactly what happened, with possible long-term repercussions for the Afghan war.

McChrystal is being replaced today, too, under the exact Sun Jupiter square which can indicate fallout from “excessive behavior” and it seems, McChrystal’s imprudent comments to the RS reporter are what originally got him into hot water.  McChrystal it appears was “gushing at the mouth” just like the oil is “gushing out” in the Gulf today. “Excess” is all over the place today, isn’t it?

June 23rd birthdays: Jason Mraz (32), Selma Blair (37)

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Remember to hold the fries.  No excess.
