“A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.” Dutch Proverb

The Universe supplies us with yet another golden opportunity to build up our reservoir of patience today with Mars, the energy planet, forming an exact square to restrictive Saturn. This more sobering influence tends to put a few roadblocks in our path and we often are forced to navigate detour routes or at least develop alternative plans of action.

Too, sometimes with this aspect we choose to bail out from projects, as Saturn can signify endings. Interestingly, on the eve of this influence being exact, it was reported that Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, will be exiting his chief executive role at the company, a shocking announcement that has caught many by surprise. Jobs has been battling cancer for years. Additionally, Mars in Cancer is making a 135-degree linkup to dissolving Neptune in Aquarius today, the sign which rules technology. We also still have transiting Saturn making this same kind of alignment with Neptune which can again indicate an erosion or disintegration of established structures (Saturn) around us, part of the natural waxing and waning process of life on the earth plane. We have had this Saturn-Neptune influence for the last few days and it will continue for a few more.

Of course, when Neptune’s shadowy ray is stoked we can experience events that are more surrealistic or unusual. Or, just plain weird. Kind of like that strange earthquake this week near Washington DC, which yours truly also got to experience first-hand while sitting in a gas station of all places. Too, reportedly Moammar Gadhafi is now on the run which seems amazing after ruling Libya for over 40 years. And, unfortunately, we also have monster hurricane “Irene”  swirling around in the Atlantic expecting to hammer the eastern seaboard this weekend after pummeling the Caribbean (Neptune rules the sea).

There is a big cosmic dessert on the table today: Love Goddess Venus trines transforming Pluto! Hopefully, this will serve as a testament to the healing power of love. Too, Venus rules money and it was announced today that Warren Buffett, through his investment company Berkshire Hathaway, is going to invest five billion dollars in Bank of America sending those stocks temporarily soaring (they had been in the tank recently). Venus-Pluto symbolizes mega-money and big bucks dealings.

Enjoy your Thursday!
