Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.
The Sun at 15 degrees Taurus sextiles Jupiter in Cancer at 5:54 am Tuesday. This is a very nice transit for Taureans although they are too likely to use it to visit the all-you-can-eat buffet down the street. (I can get away with saying that because I am a Taurus!) You might choose to celebrate your birthday with friends on this day since everything seems to be going your way, everyone wishes you well or helps you, and you are in a cheerful, buoyant mood. Enjoy it while you can because Saturday will be a bear!
Mercury enters its home sign Gemini at 10:57 am Wednesday. Mercury in Gemini is a chatterbox and a flirt. This Mercury tends to flit from one topic to another; he can be dazzling as quicksilver but doesn’t get into deep conversations. A trivia king or queen. Is very quick to catch on to new information and how to use it, and can be very good at communicating information or directing people on where to find it. Often has a gift for languages or math. Can make a great secretary, clerk, teacher, librarian, linguist, editor, printer or newscaster. Famous people with Mercury in Gemini include: Bobby Darin, William Styron, Robert McNamara, Bob Hope, Audrey Hepburn, and Laurence Rockefeller.
The Sun at 19 to 20 degrees Taurus opposes Saturn in Scorpio at 2:28 pm Saturday. The sun in any sign opposing Saturn hits a milestone of some kind. One may have to say goodbye to people or places, or move, or change jobs, or retire. Check your natal chart to see if this contacts a natal planet, and what house that planet rules, for hints as to what may be in store for you. The good news is that a new cycle begins, but first it can be plenty frustrating because roadblocks seem designed to drive you crazy.
