“About half my designs are controlled fantasy, fifteen percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs.” Manolo Blahnik

Normally the Moon in “analytical” Virgo bodes well for our operating more logically and systematically. And, while hopefully, this will still be the case for us today, we do need to be aware that there is also now greater proclivity for some “fuzzy thinking” because not only is the Virgo Moon’s ruler, Mercury, still in retrograde phase, it is also stressfully aligned today (semisquare) with “let me blur the boundaries for you” Neptune in imaginative Pisces (the sign Neptune rules). Neptune is the planet of fantasy, so we will want to be “double-checking” our facts today. Too, if some of our ideas seem a little “weird” or “spacey” to us, it may be best not to act on them or give them voice in public (could garner some strange looks, or raised eyebrows, if we do.) 🙂

Of course, with Neptune ruling “make-believe” and Mercury ruling the “news,” some of us today, too, may be disillusioned or disheartened (Neptune) about the entertainment news from ABC yesterday that the network will be axing “All My Children,” and “One Life To Live.” Kelly Ripa on “Live With Regis and Kelly” today recalled her days on AMC which launched her career.

BTW, when both of these soaps debuted on TV (‘One Life To Live’ on 7/15/68 and ‘All My Children’ on 1/5/70), “fantasy Neptune” was a big factor in each of the shows’ respective horoscopes. ‘One Life to Live‘ debuted with the Sun exactly favorably trine to Neptune in sexual Scorpio, while ‘All My Children” went on the air with Mercury exactly sextile Neptune in Scorpio (another positive, dreamy aspect). Of course, we always ideally want to have Neptune well-aspected in a “soap-opera” horoscope since we are dealing with the realm of “make-believe,” and when Neptune’s ray is stoked, we are more willing to be led by our imagination. Neptune also rules television.

Are you a fan of both or either of these shows? How do you feel about their pending departure? Bummed out? Feel a little like you have lost a family member? While I was personally a huge fan of the old “Dallas” evening “soap opera” show on CBS-TV, many moons ago, and was devastated when it went off the air (loved Larry Hagman as “JR”), I have never even watched one episode of ‘One Life To Live,’ or ‘All My Children.’ Always too busy working during the daytime. Of course, I know of Susan Lucci, the star of ‘All My Children.’ Too, Oprah Winfrey recently did a show on soap opera stars and Susan was on that show.
