First Quarter Moon Haiku

Half grown Moon under
Spica, Harvest Goddess Star;
"Dig, but marry not."

Spica associated with talent and work but considered unfavorable for love matters in many cases. Spica is Alpha Virgo, alpha star in the harvest or virgin goddess. Right after twittering (tweeting? ... whatever ...) this story came in ...

Weekly horoscopes June 25-July 2

Available at my website. Here's a sample:

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Ever hear about the guy who added a second wing to his home, only to watch it fly away? Our home demands we take action this week Cancer, but do think changes through carefully.

Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Rodney Dangerfield once quipped that the neighborhood he came from was so tough, he once put his hand in some wet cement and felt another hand. Our neighborhood may not suit us ideally this week Leo, but consider that things certainly could be worse.

Weekly horoscopes June 19-25

Aries (March 21-April 19): One way to deal with stress on the home front Aries is to move. Before we accept an offer on our residence though do make sure we aren't currently renting.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): If messages are confusing this week Taurus it may be because we're in unfamiliar territory. Next time we ask the gods for new people to talk to, remember to include language preferences.

Gemini (June 21-July 22): A Chinese proverb advises that the wise benefit more from their enemies than fools do from their friends. This is because the wise choose friends who don't need regular bail outs. If buddies confuse us with the government this week Gemini, it may be time for some tough love.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Nietzsche said that one must have chaos within in order to birth the dancing star. If that's true then this week we're birthing not only stars, but supernovas Cancer. Inform our companions they might want to wear shades.

Leo (July 23-Aug 22): It's famously said that a prophet is never recognized in their own country. Sometimes a king has trouble getting their due on home ground too, but at least the food is familiar; think about that if contemplating an escape from or return to a place where they know us too well, Leo.

Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22): A friend may want more from us than we're willing to give this week Virgo. We could try wearing garlic around our neck and see if that dissuades them.

Libra (Sept 23-Oct 23): We may feel as if home and family are raining on our parade this week Libra. If escape is not an option at least plant vegetables to be watered for future use.

Scorpio (Oct 24-Nov 22): "The secret of your future," Mike Murdock sagely notes, "is hidden in your daily routine." If routines seem disrupted now Scorpio, consider the upsets a necessary course correction. Either that or we missed the "falling rocks," sign a mile back.

Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 21): "Dignity and an empty sack is worth the sack," advise the Ferengi, Star Trek's race of uber-capitalist aliens. Before putting either sack or dignity on e-Bay Sadge, know that a better solution exists. We may have to rethink a gamble that didn't pay off to find it though.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): If others seem to be getting all the credit while we feel as if we're really doing all the work Capricorn, we might try walking in their shoes for a few days. Note however that if our feet begin to hurt, it's not because of a difference in shoe size.

Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 19): A surprising message may interrupt our routine this week Aquarius. If it's the mother ship calling however, the message is probably that we've forgotten to take our meds.

Pisces (Feb 20-March 20): There's a big difference between being childlike and childish Pisces. If we're not sure what that is, we can ask our money. If it's not answering, that's our clue.

Astrological Haiku; Jupiter retrograde

Jupiter turns retrograde today, triggering the Jupiter/Neptune/Chiron alignment. If we have natal planets or angles (Ascendant, Ic or 4th house cusp, Descendant, Midheaven) at 26 degrees of Aquarius or thereabouts, this Jupiter will be talking to us. (We could try covering our ears but don't stake all bets on that working). Dreams and aspirations at this time need realisitic foundations or significant renovation. If events are telling us an aspiration may be no more than castle-in-the-clouds building, let it go or buy a parachute.
