TMAstrology TOD for Monday, December 28th (into Tues Dec 29th): According to Nikolai Grozni, author of _Turtle Feet: The Making and Unmaking of a Buddhist Monk_ debate contests between Tibetan monks are particularly er ... lively ... because it's the only form of aggression allowed these young, celibate groups of men. We won't have to be a debating Tibetan Buddhist monk to get into contentious debate today through tomorrow as the stars will inspire that all on their own. Wanna argue about the definition of emptiness anyone?

Equine Astrology TOD for Saturday, Dec 19: Don't be decorating any Aries-Sun horses for Christmas today, unless we can do it quick. Aries (horses, humans, dogs, houseplants even) are going to be particularly impatient. And we're all going to be a bit obsessive. You can see how this could end badly ...
Trish Marie Astrology TOD for Saturday, Dec 19: It's a somewhat obsessive-compulsive day today so if we enjoy that sort of thing, we'll be happy. If we don't enjoy it, then we can channel the energy into ferreting out secrets ... especially those that involve money or power. Arians will be particularly impatient, so don't take your Aries friends to see Star Wars because they'll be chewing on their coat (and maybe yours as well) out of frustration by the time you make it through the line.

TMAstrology for THURSDAY, Dec 10th: high risk of running smack into immovable objects today folks. High risk of running into immoveable people too. Drive with care and stay flexible, even though our inclination will be to dig our heels in over something or other. (I'm just going to stay home and write ... with a pen. Computers likely to be more inflexible tomorrow too).
Donald Trump. (-sigh). Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius ... Gemini's famous flaw is talking too much, Sadge is talking too bluntly ... and Trump has Leo Rising, so, (when expressed negatively) he's an attention whore. Plus, see Mars (circled in red at left) ... has just peeked above the horizon at time/place of Trump's birth ... this is the Ascendant. Everything we do, say, experience gets filtered through our ascendent and when Mars (the god of war) rises, life feels like a battle ... one we're happy to participate in. If we can't find a battle, we'll make one. Trump was born on an eclipse making commitment and separations a big deal in his life (just ask one of his ex-wives ... and, in his reality show he's famous for saying, "You're Fired!"), and the nodes of the Moon (those horseshoe shaped symbols) span the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. This means that he really should have gotten as much education as he could, and needs to work hard to understand people of different cultures and viewpoints than his.

Equine Astrology TOD for WED, Dec 2nd: The last quarter Moon triggers the ongoing Saturn-Neptune square, which represents the breaking of illusions. In honor of that, here's an article that may help some training myths (I never agreed with the whole "don't sooth" frightened animals thing ... or the don't pick up a crying baby. Natural instinct says to offer comfort, and I say, go for that ...).
TMAstrology for WED, Dec 2nd: Author Barb Ehrenreich writes that "Delusion is always a mistake." The truth of this will be made clear under Wed's last quarter Moon. This Moon triggers the ongoing Saturn-Neptune square, which represents reality intruding on fantasy. Yes this does mean we won't be able to avoid noticing the dust bunnies (and flat out dust) in that room we talked ourselves into believing we'd cleaned. (Except for the Virgos--the Virgos really did clean it. Twice.)
