The Universe is, I believe, signaling a “time out.”
The waning Moon is secluded away in mystical Pisces, trying to recuperate from all the recent Full Moon Eclipse hullabaloo. She is, no doubt, suggesting we do likewise: Retreat to the safety of our comfortable little cocoons and hopefully give thanks for our many blessings.
Thought-Keeper Mercury is also nestled in familial, food-minded Cancer and sextile to Energizer Mars in the health-sign of Virgo.
Joyful immersion in “kitchen karma.” Connecting with family members and loved ones over a hearty, home-cooked meal. Pausing to reflect upon sentimental memories from yesteryear (Mercury in Cancer). That may be just what Dr. Mars has in mind for us today.
“Food, like a loving touch or glimpse of divine power, has the ability to comfort.” Norman Kolpas

Princess Diana quotes on family:
“Family is the most important thing in the world.”
“I live for my sons. I would be lost without them.”
“I will fight for my children on any level so they can reach their potential as human beings and in their public duties.”
I think Diana would be very proud of how her two sons have grown up, don’t you? They are a shining tribute to their Mother.
Enjoy your Thursday!
Remember to clean up as you go along. Part of “kitchen karma.”
