“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Charles Darwin


Many of us do not like change. This is often because change usually requires that we learn terrifying new skill sets. Or ambiguous new behaviors. It is normally easier for us to simply “coast along in our sameness,” as the beautiful people that we are already, minus the pressure of hideous modification. Plus, we may feel that if we subject ourselves to the onerous forces of change, we may wipe out, or put at risk, the tiny smattering of security that has taken all of our lives to accumulate. And, too, this could happen.

Of course, the great fallacy here with this type of rigid thinking: Life is always changing! It is never static, as much as we may like to “cling” to that fanciful concept. A static situation is a cessation of activity. That occurs only when we are dead. Or dating the wrong kind of men. Which could be even worse.  While we are alive, we have got to learn to “roll with those proverbial punches, baby” and adapt.

My little banter here is a prelude to today’s complex cosmic set-up: Moon vacates, “Please, just let me have my 19th nervous breakdown and be done with it” Gemini for, “All I want to do is preheat the oven and bake my life away” Cancer. The ambitious Capricorn Sun also sextiles “You’re talking change? I’ll show you change, by golly!” Uranus.

What this means in plain English is: The day starts out on the jumbled side (Gemini Moon), but the pace becomes more relaxed and familiar with the Moon’s entrance into homebody Cancer, and the oven now dutifully set at 325 (at 2:30 pm EST). The Sun’s link-up with unpredictable Uranus, however, suddenly gives us quirky ideas about venturing outside of the kitchen to go in the backyard to build a wacky space station (4:56 pm EST). The Cancer Moon part of us will have none of that crap and rebels.  So what to do? That’s something for each of us to decide in his or her own way. Do we want to stick with the tried-and-true Pillsbury doughboy today? Or, do we want to change things up and try to contact space aliens? Keep in mind, too, that pioneering Mars has just moved into Uranus-ruled Aquarius. Also, Jupiter is still conjoined Uranus. It could be that we’re suppose to “make that Uranian change” and venture into the backyard to tinker, and ideally see if we can also convince the motherly Cancer Moon to do some grilling outside, with the doughboy flipping the burgers. 🙂
