Mon & Tues Equine Astrology Tip of the Day: Once upon a time in Poland, chess was played in the town squares with giant chess pieces and real mounted riders for the knights. I don't know if it's good or not that those games have gone the way of history, but I do know ... today and tomorrow short, varied intellectual endeavors will go better than hard concentrating on any one thing. How to get a horse to help with checkers however, is another story.

TMAstrology for Mon & Tues Feb 15-16: The Moon is in Gemini today and tomorrow, which means it's being opposed by Saturn (currently in the opposite sign, Sagittarius). Which means Gemini is not quite as bubbly as Gemini usually is. which means, we might actually be able to get a word in edgewise with Gem friends. If there's anything you wanted to tell one, here's your sign.

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for FRIDAY, Feb 5th: Today Venus, goddess of love and money aligns with Pluto, god of passion (intensity) in the stalwart if a wee bit power hungry sign of Capricorn. Best manifestation of this alignment is constancy, faithfulness (even under pressure--especially under pressure), shared struggle. Actually, this Lloyd's commercial expresses the best meaning of Venus-Pluto in Capricorn heart breakingly well. (Get out your hanky).
FRIDAY, Feb 5th TMAstrology ALERT! On Friday, Venus, goddess of love and money, aligns with Pluto, god of territoriality (among other things). They do this in the dictatorial sign of Capricorn (sorry Cappys ... I know a lot of you are sweeties that only entertain visions of world conquest in your dreams). Positive potential for this placement is extreme faithfulness (I guess could be good or bad depending on who or what we're being faithful to), acceptance of difficult responsibility, deep attachment to mature partners (you know, like Melania Trump feels for The Donald and this being Venus, and Pluto, and Capricorn, all his loot certainly helped the affection along) .. negative manifestations of this alignment are jealousy, territoriality, reactivity, and dictatorial attitudes. Yeah, a scary mix. My advice? Channel passion into productive outlets, stay away from reactive people, and remember that, as Bertrand Russell wrote, "Envy consists in seeing things never in themselves, but only in their relations. If you desire glory, you may envy Napoleon, but Napoleon envied Caesar, Caesar envied Alexander, and Alexander envied Hercules, who never existed."

Equine Astrology Tip of the Day for Tue & Wed Feb 2-3: The Moon enters the horsey sign of Sagittarius today and remains there through Wed. An excellent time to get out and channel our inner centaur. Weather too bad to ride? There's more to horses than riding! To me the best thing about horses is just watching them, especially if they're as cute as this one.
