“My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.”

It’s a full moon weekend! Friday night is the full moon eclipse in Sagittarius. Going into date night, the opposition is applying with the Moon already in Sadge. It’s intense and the mood is snappy but with a sidecar of fog. This full moon squares Neptune in Pisces. Neptune can glamorize, throw a little magic over reality. It can obscure, making things mysterious. It can also be unsettlingly unclear and confusing.

“You’re heading towards your Saturn return. You’ve got to decide what kind of adult you want to be. Are you going to place limits on yourself?
Are you going to be the kind of person who pushes through blocks?
Are you going to be someone who blames others?
Are you going to be flail around?
Are you going to get your life and track and keep it there..?
Are you headed towards your Saturn return? How are you faring?
I get these kinds of questions a lot. I think it’s because I am such a weirdo. I have an unconventional background and there is nothing you or I can do about that!

“I am guessing you don’t know much about astrology, so here is a crash course. Planets move along in their orbits, forming angles to each other that correlate with events in our lives.
Astrology in real life.
I have two sisters who are older than me. The eldest was a bully. She literally beat the hell out of me. My sister, Annalisa, who some of you know, was extremely popular in school. I was more of a misfit. I stayed out of her way, feeling association with me would harm her voguishness.

Thursday morning the Moon in Scorpio conjuncts Saturn, sextiles Pluto, and quincunxes Uranus. As volatile as things have been, the Moon here is a boon. While the Moon touches on the Pluto-Uranus square, it does so from a position of stability, its back to Saturn. It’s like standing on a pile of rubble and saying, “So?” There’s the trouble and there’s the day after. This is the day after mood. Yeah it’s not perfect, but you dig deep and the feeling is get on it and get on with it.

Young mothers look at the charts of their babies. They worry if they see Saturn in the 12th, but it’s really not that simple.
I spoke with man who told me he thought his father was absent for his childhood. He thought this clear up until he was 30 years old.

“The memory has as many moods as the temper, and shifts its scenery like a diorama.”
― George Eliot, Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life
Wednesday morning the Moon in late Libra trines Jupiter and quincunxes Taurus Mars. It’s a chipper mood to interact and act, but only if it feels good. It’s likely going to be tougher to motivate yourself to do anything unpleasant or un-pretty. Put on pink and talk over tea? YES! Hike up your sleeves and snake the drains? NO! That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. That just means it’s probably not going to be all that appealing. Try not to crumple up on the floor and writhe like bacon in a hot pan.

Some people have very difficult charts. I don’t know why. They just do. And I see their lives correlate with the chart. Some people have charts that are relatively easy and their lives reflect this.
“I relate to you, Ralph. When I hit bottom, I was crushing man’s skull like sparrow’s egg between my thighs… and I think, why you have to be so bad, Zangief? Why can’t you be more like good guy? Then I have moment of clarity… if Zangief is good guy, who will crush man’s skull like sparrow’s egg between thighs? And I say, Zangief you are bad guy, but this does not mean you are *bad* guy.”
Tuesday morning the Moon in Venus-ruled Libra trines the Mercury-Venus conjunction in Gemini and Juno in Aquarius, a grand trine in air. Love is in the air! Pretty jelly tones and lyrical laughter, upbeat and committed with enough space to breathe. And it also has a square to Pluto, HA HA HA HA, stomping on the pretty little jelly people running and screaming. Okay, it’s not THAT dire, but it has that flavor. There’s a funky smell in the theme park, folks.
