scarecrows and straw Some post Thanksgiving thoughts on the current cosmic stew:
Pat yourself on the back. You have navigated through a great deal of change and tumult over the better part of the past decade. 

Just look at the news.

For example it was only a few short years ago, gays were treated as pariahs and hid in the closet. Today they can marry in every state in the union. I don’t have to go back very far to the days when it was quite risky to venture out of the closet in all but a few protected environments.

Technology keeps leaping ahead while many of us struggle to keep up. Some changes, such as the economic downturn of 2008, are still causing hardship for far too many.

And yet, here we are. And we are still going through shake-ups as the result of events playing out on the world stage as well as events that affect you personally. So now it is time to step back and appreciate all that has happened. Give yourself credit for managing to stay afloat in a world going topsy turvy.

Your ability to adapt and roll with the punches is being tested as all of us and all of our systems struggle to continually update. Adjustment and flexibility are the watchwords as the cosmic playground has shifted from the cardinals to the mutables.

Jupiter, planet of expansion and excess, traveling through Virgo, describes the overwhelming mass of information that needs to be organized and digested.

Neptune in Pisces describes ones dreams and vision. Saturn’s path is currently in conflict with Neptune. The result is to test that vision to see if it can be made real. But delays and roadblocks are temporary if you are willing to work to ground the vision with a firm foundation.

And a little TLC doesn’t hurt either.
