TMAstrology for Oct 14-Oct 17

I write little reviews of books I read at the back of my personal diary. For Michael Pollan's book "A Place of My Own," about building a "writer's hut" on his property I wrote: "This guy is putting a ridiculous amount of emotional investment into what is essentially a hut in the woods." Stars this week (Oct 14-Oct 17) align in patterns that incline us to some version of the same. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to guide this energy into something that helps us gain ground on a personal project yet keep it all in perspective. After all, Henry David Thoreau didn't take his cabin on Walden pond overly seriously and 170 years later the world still remembers that one.

Tues Oct 2nd Equine Astrology TOD

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for Tuesday, October 2nd: Stars say stay out of bars this evening riders. Aspects favor excessive drama, and even a spilled drink or two. 

Tues Oct 2 TMAstrology

TMAstrology for Tues, Oct 2: Stars say staying home with a book or tv show is recommended this evening. Aspects encourage criticism and judgmental behavior. Maybe this is why I had to talk myself down from writing a negative review of the disappointing book I just finished ... hmmm, well, maybe staying home with a book isn't such a great idea after all ...

Sat Sept 1st Equine Astrology TOD

Saturday, Sept 1st, the first day of Labor Day Weekend sees stubbornness rein (haha) as the Moon in earthy Taurus squares Mercury in fiery Leo. "Earthy" activities continue to be favored, but if we do ride, take the trail where we tend to agree with our ride on speed, direction and other particulars. Avoid the trails that inspire argument. Or just go hiking (because it's easier to win an argument with your own feet than someone else's). 

Labor Day Weekend astrology

So, how's the Labor Day weekend shaping up astrologically? Eh, you know what ... after August, with all the backwards energy of the multiple retrogrades, who cares? August is over, that's all I need to know. Yay. But ... okay ... Saturday, September 1st, stubbornness rules, as Moon in earthy Taurus squares Mercury in fiery Leo. Eh, shut up Leo, earth will smother fire every time. Sunday and Monday the energies have shifted, and we're all more open to compromise. Maybe you *will* be able to talk the relatives into trying the veggie burgers and dogs at the Labor Day picnic after all ...

Thursday, Aug 30 Equine Astrology TOD

Head's up riders! Tomorrow (Thursday, August 30) in the afternoon-evening odds of accident is higher, especially as regards "ground or earth." If we don't want to hit the earth we'll ride with especial care. Or maybe just stay on the ground and shovel s**t. Digging is actually favored! (Do it with care though ... not like I do, wearing flip flops!).

July Lunar Eclipse

Holy Full Moon energy Batman! Can you feel the tension? Lord knows I can ... already two "emergency" astrology calls today (yes, there is such a thing). Tomorrow's Full Moon eclipse features the Moon (emotions, security) aligned with retrograde Mars (too much energy) and the South Node of the Moon (the past, family, foundations). This mess is in stressful aspect to most of the rest of the planets, particularly Uranus ...a high energy, disruptive pattern that encourages material or emotional breakdowns. Nerves, heart, digestion particularly stressed. "Too much heat," a serious risk (metaphorically or actually).

What to do about it all? This is best summarized in the French proverb, "Praise the God of all, drink the wine, and let the world be the world." Oh ... and be patient. Haste makes waste, especially under aspects like these.

Negative potentials: accidents, breakdowns, anger, violence, upsets, emotional meltdowns, nerve and heart issues.

Postive (productive) uses: sudden breakthroughs, unusual availability of energy, courage, flashes of insight ... if we have something we need broken, such as tearing down before remodeling, here's our sign. (Do proceed with care).
