“I deepen my experience of God through prayer, meditation, and forgiveness.” Marianne Williamson

The waning Moon remains in yielding, meditative Pisces encouraging us to “go with the flow” instead of offering up any formidable resistance – although, we may need to consciously guide ourselves in order to stay on track with things.

Early afternoon, the Moon’s trine to sweet Venus in caring Cancer (2:43 pm EDT) ideally helps to strengthen our bonds with loved ones. Venus is also sesquiquadrate to wounded healer Chiron suggesting that this may be a good time to placate old wounds.

The Moon’s square to restless Mars, in communicator Gemini (4:45 pm EDT), also gifts us with an opportunity to learn how to “hold our tongue,” lest we get sent to the back of the classroom.

“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.” Charles Dickens

Famous People with Moon in Pisces: Elvis Presley, Jerry Seinfield, Michael Jackson, Prince, Hillary Clinton, Winona Ryder

Events in the News: With Luna steeped in her “waning phase” and cloaked in “dissolving” Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, we are also collectively seeing the “passing away” of some familiar structures now:

Some “endings” perhaps worth noting now:

1)  The Space Shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to undock from the International Space Station today for the last time in the history of the space shuttle program.

2) “Borders,” the 2nd largest U.S. bookstore chain, announced yesterday that it’s liquidating all of its remaining bookstores and idling some 11,000 workers.

3) U.S. General Petraeus gave up command of the Afghan war Monday to head the CIA. Of course, the U.S. government is also taking measures to reportedly draw down the number of troops in Afghanistan.

4) News Corp head, Rupert Murdoch, whose media empire has been seemingly imploding, as of late, is slated to testify before lawmakers in the U.K. today about the alleged “phone hacking” scandal. Interestingly, this scandal investigation really began heating up shortly after warrior Mars launched into communication Gemini in late June (Gemini rules both telephones and the news media).

Enjoy your Tuesday!
