Libra Seeking Balance

The first part of the week is on the grumpy side but the atmosphere gradually improves towards the weekend. Mercury in Virgo stationed retrograde last weekend and starts the week at a standstill plus poor Venus in Cancer takes some hits too. Dust off your patience and tact because we’ll need both this week!

Venus in Cancer’s problems are the worst on Tuesday and Wednesday when she creates a cardinal T-Square with Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
