“It’s so beautifully arranged on the plate – you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.” Julia Child


The Emotional Moon continues in “The Way To A Man’s Heart Is Through His Stomach” Cancer, until 2:22 pm EDT, at which time it enters “Entertaining Leo,” when we may feel a little like “singing for our supper.” The Leo Moon loves to perform and craves the spotlight of the stage.

Sex Lord Mars and Love Goddess Venus are still serving up hot and spicy entrees in private in the bedroom in “Passionate Lovemaking” Scorpio.

Over-indulgent Jupiter in, “I’ll Have One More For The Road” Pisces, is quinqunx Willful Mars, and trying to bribe him with excess and BS. This is one aspect we do have to keep an eye on. With Mars-Jupiter paired together, we usually tend to “go overboard” in  our beliefs and often act out in wild, fanatical ways. Like maybe going on a hunger strike for 40 days and nights, whatever it takes, in hopes that George Clooney will give us a call.

Meanwhile, Mental Mercury, in Logical Virgo, opposes Clever Uranus, who is sitting next to Jupiter at the bar in “Watering Hole” Pisces. Uranus is goading Mercury to come up with some “original recipes” for burgers to give to the Cancer Moon for today’s tailgate parties.

To be sure, “Mercury opposite Uranus” is a quirky influence that can make our “thoughts erratic” and “speech impulsive.” Because of the rebellious nature of Uranus, we can also be more “intellectually defiant.” Nevertheless, this is an aspect equated with “genius and originality.”

So today is an ideal time to press for “inventive, new solutions” to old problems. Maybe even try a little “‘cherries and whipped cream” on the burger, for a taste that’s refreshingly different. Especially since we also have the creative “Mars-Venus” conjunction in Scorpio, a sign which likes to “re-configure the nature of things.”

Personal Note: Below is a photo of my glorious, mangled front yard in the aftermath of this week’s “Sun conjunct Saturn” square to my natal Mars at 7 degrees of Capricorn.

I had a huge, beautiful, red oak tree suddenly fall during a storm, taking parts of three other trees along with it (two maples and a dogwood).  Saturn rules forms and established structures (the trees). Aggressor Mars signifies the ‘Warrior” principle (the missile-like attack on the tree).  With “Mars stressful to Saturn” we often literally, and or symbolically, see “old structures topple” in order to make way for new, positive growth elements in our lives. I was very lucky that no one was hurt and my house was not damaged, to which I’m very thankful. Too, I am really looking forward to having more sunlight in my yard, so there is a “silver lining” to all this.
