“A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“Cosmic Word of The Day”: Friction

Definition: 1) surface resistance to relative motion, as of a body sliding or rolling 2) the rubbing of the surface of one body against another 3) dissension of conflict between persons, nations, etc. because of differing ideas, wishes, etc.

Origin: 1575-85; < L friction (s. of frictio) a rubbing


Moon is in sex-addicted Scorpio.  Messenger Mercury is in speculative, fame-seeking Leo and forming funky, 135-degree links to both grandiose Jupiter and life-altering Pluto.

We’re cruisin’ along at a pleasant rate of speed in our vintage Ford Thunderbird convertible. All of a sudden we have to slow down because of a frickin’ speed bump. An aggravating form of friction. Apparently, there’s something that we must karmically attend to before we can continue on with our journey. It could be that Ed McMahon is trying to text message us from the Great Beyond to tell us that we have finally won the Giant Sweepstakes. Or, perhaps Simon Cowell is getting back with us on his Blackberry, regarding our earlier telepathic audition, to tell us how much we suck.

Whatever the case, we must be prepared for a little deviation and possible friction with respect to our planned, personal agendas today. We may also want to postpone pivotal decision-making for a couple days, as we’re inclined to overextend ourselves now and also be more careless with details.

“You are a saucy little thing aren’t you?” Simon Cowell

In the News: With “Expansive” Jupiter conjunct “Equality” planet Uranus, in the “pioneering” sign of Aries, and both square to Pluto, which governs reform and sexual attitudes, a bill to legalize same-sex marriages was approved last Thursday by the Argentine National Congress. Argentina now becomes the first Latin America country to legalize same-sex marriages nationwide. “Squares” force “movement” on issues.

Enjoy your Monday!

Keep the hot coffee cup lidded so, in case you encounter some friction while you’re driving, it won’t spill all over you.
