The “action-packed” Aries Moon primes us for risk-taking and adventure. But before charging out of the gate, we need to be clear about what it is that we are chasing and why, so we don’t scatter our energies. Especially since the impetuous Aries Moon is square to Mars, its ruler (3:12 pm EDT), a more restless influence that can have us dissipating our efforts, if we’re not careful.

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.Brian Tracy

Famous Birthdays August 17th:  Actress Mae West, famous for her original, witty, and often sexy quips, was born on this day in 1892. West, an entertaining Leo Sun, had her pioneering Mars, the planet of sex and passion, conjunct her 10th house of career, at the very top of her chart. Her Mars was also in quirky, futuristic Aquarius. Perhaps one reason why she was not afraid to “break the rules” or defy traditional protocol at the time, especially with respect to openly discussing matters of a sexual nature. West did much to pave the way for more open expression here. Her feelings-oriented Cancer Moon was also exactly trine to uninhibited Uranus in Scorpio, the zodiacal sign of sex that is co-ruled by Mars. Uranus, of course, is the ruler of “liberating” Aquarius.

“Is that a gun in your pocket or are you glad to see me?” Mae West. 🙂

On a personal note: Just wanted to say that my schedule is very hectic now (transiting Uranus conjunct my Aries Ascendant). While I still hope to keep up this blog with some frequency, I will not be able to be with you on a regular, daily basis like I have been in the past, at least for the foreseeable future. I apologize.

Enjoy your Wednesday!
