Apologies for the absence folks, I've been on a writing jag again. Anyway!--big news of the week is Saturday's (Aug 29) Full Moon. At a Full Moon we feel a conflict between life direction (Sun) and our needs (Moon) ... wants vs needs in essence. We feel this conflict but we usually don't know it. Others also feel the same conflict, but don't know it. It's no wonder over reactions reign when the Full Moon rises. Next life maybe we should just all be reincarnated as werewolves and go with it. This life, remember that we aren't a werewolf and if someone or something is getting on our nerves now through the Full Moon, neither biting them nor running through the woods naked and growling is a productive solution. (i.e., don't over react).

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for THURSDAY, August13: Today is one of the best hair fixing & hair cutting (to stay cut) days of the year. But leave those whiskers alone! There's a breed for people who don't like horses with whiskers--it's called "Breyer."
TM astrology for THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING, Wed, August 12th: In her book _Bright Sided_, a critique of the cult of positive thinking, Barbara Ehrenreich notes that "delusion is always a mistake." Today we run into a lot of deluded people, as well as the generally confused. Don't believe everything you hear, and risk of arguments is enhanced, esp. late. On the up side, when the misguided are busy arguing with each other, they've not time to take action based on their misconceptions. Goethe would be happy ("The most frightening thing in the world is ignorance in action.") On the even upper side, this alignment favors taking action based on imagination; artists, poets, writers, have at it.

TM Astrology for TUESDAY, August 11th: Environmental writer Derrick Jensen says that salmon don't need more books written about them. They need clean, fast water and the dams to come down. Today Jupiter, planet of the big idea, enters Virgo, sign of practical application. Jupiter in Virgo says, we need a little less talk and a lot more action. Jupiter will be in Virgo for approx. a year! So, roll up those shirt sleeves and get to work!

Equine Astrology TOD for THURSDAY, August 6 (Last Quarter Moon): Something gets our horse's goat (or our own) round about 4 PM EDT (1 PM PDT). So maybe ride early, or late. Or make a sign saying "No Goats," and hang it on the barn door. Just for the day of course, because, you know, goats are cuties!

Astrology Haiku for TUESDAY, August 4th: We can't have our bridge / and burn it too, or is that / supposed to be cake? Planets align in a contradictory pattern that one the one hand inflate dreams and desire--and on the other, bump them up against a brick wall named "reality." Good news is, under such patterns were at no risk of building castles in the air. Gravity will assert itself from the get go.
Equine Astrology TOD for TUESDAY, August 4th: We've got a weird confluence of planets that on one hand inflate dreams or desire, but on the other see them hit a brick wall named "reality." Stars say enjoy the vision but be realistic and don't get discouraged by the setback that will occur. For me this means I'll go out to my barn and discover that no one has snuck in overnight and cleaned the thing. Yet again. -sigh-
