Keywords: illusion, consumed, idealism
Life feels like one long happy romantic movie during the course of this sweet transit. It is, of course, only an illusion: several days of pink smoke and mirrors; ephemeral, enchanting and all too temporary. We live in a daydream, consumed by our idealistic visions of the perfect world. Fortunately, there are ways to bring this ideal existence down to the earth plane: the arts. Music is the sublime language of the heavens. Listen and you'll be transported. Beautiful images entrance us and we are more sensitive to them at this time, so making collages, leafing through art books or visiting a gallery fulfills the siren song of this transit. We may also focus on improving our image or appearance; spending money on clothes, cosmetics and a new hairdo is fine now, as long as we dont overpay. And if we find ourselves swooning over some new romantic connection, lets enjoy it while it lasts!
Keywords: intuitive, sensitive, tender
No one is going to feel particularly disciplined today, so lets not be too hard on ourselves. We feel passive and receptive rather than active or assertive. Instead of work, all forms of creative expression are highlighted -- art, music, nature and even romance. We need soft lights and quiet music, nothing loud, rude or jarring. We are too easily influenced now, enchanted by images and distracted by glamour. Fantasies are far more compelling than reality, so its all too tempting to live in that ideal dream world than deal with the everyday, mundane details of our lives. For those of us in relationships, we feel tender and affectionate toward our partners and these emotions are returned sweetly. Single folks find themselves imagining the perfect lover and perhaps even seeking that person out, but dont run off to Vegas till next week, when reality has replaced the delicious dream were living in now.
Keywords: idealistic, unrealistic, disappointment
Mysteries call us today and it's hard to turn away from their siren song. Then reality rudely intrudes into our dreamy illusions. How dare it? Keep in mind that one persons daydream is anothers inspiration. Its all in how you view it. So lets not be so quick to dismiss the beautiful images flowing through our brains from our fertile imaginations. Since we cannot keep our minds on our work, we should be sure to keep the valuables locked up. Were inattentive at the moment and someone could take advantage of that. Not just inattentive, either: Were also gullible, impractical and half-asleep. Be careful with spending; money slips through our fingers now like grains of sand. In romance, were all too likely to ignore any red flags raised by small details of speech or behavior. If we dont pay attention now, well regret it later once our illusions are revealed for what they are.
Keywords: compassion, tenderness, selflessness
This is not a high-energy day. Rather than tackling our task list with gusto, instead were caught up in a daydream, fantasizing about the perfect romance or our weekend plans. It's a very creative time, though. Hopefully that will give us something to work with. Compassion flows now and were easily able to tap into it. So if anyone seeks us out with a problem they need to talk out, we listen with great sympathy and understanding, even if we cant provide a solution. Spiritual needs are strong at this time and seeking out reverence and quietude gives a calm, centered feeling. Alternatively, the desire to escape the workaday world could be indulged. A romantic novel or movie would be the perfect choice. Do resist any temptation to indulge in drinking or drugs. We're hypersensitive and don't know when to quit. Another option: Spend some quality time with a friend or loved one.
Keywords: projection, expectations, disillusionment
We can easily be led astray by folks with unclear motives for the few days this spaced-out transit lasts. Things are not as they seem. Were passive and receptive and we have a hard time saying no. Our judgment can be impaired to the point that we dont know when enough is enough. We tend to live in a daydream instead of focusing on our everyday tasks, and often those daydreams are centered on someone attractive. Fantasizing about someone creates psychic connections, but under the current energy it's an invasion of their personal space, to be avoided whenever possible. Instead, engage in a favorite creative hobby, which not only diverts the tendency to daydream but also provides us with something tangible at the end of the day. Energy is quite deflated now and we feel neither practical nor organized. There's no getting around it, so we should simply do the best we can.
