A couple of days late, but here it is:
Well, I am back safely from 10 days in Hong Kong- with the exception of a very narrow escape from a thong-eating escalator (the foot variety, thankyou very much) at the Airport on Thursday night. Naturally it is the toe that I was convinced I got frost bite on in New York. But then again, the 1st time I was in Hong Kong (this time 2 years ago) there was this incident with my finger and a fire door… so maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something!
Although I was working most of the Easter break, I was able to get out & about before & after work, & did manage a little time off as well. It was really weird (& strangely hard) working on days when traditionally, for me anyway, no one works ie Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
A couple of days there I found myself being very sad sacky- I like to blame the self pity on all those Pisces planets. But, on the up side, I do love Hong Kong- it has such a buzz & a vibrancy (and the shopping is pretty good too)- so there are plenty of worse places I could have spent Easter (and the shops are open on public holidays)- so the tears dried up pretty quickly. It is difficult to feel lonely for long with shops like Shanghai Tang & so many dumplings to tempt a girl…
Anyway, I will post a couple of travel/ foodie related blogs over the next few days.
I’m sure after being away as much as I have this year, that my hubby sees me as a house guest rather than a permanent fixture- he even made it to the bottom of my ironing basket (apparently it is white…). I have stupidly declared that I won’t do another long haul flight this year… although that may be the jetlag talking & if the opportunity arises… it is a Jupiter year after all for me…:)
On the Blogs
Suffice to say, not a lot of posting.
It seems that I can’t stay “over” Aries for long- after all, how could I? So on Your Career & the Cosmos I have posted a piece on Aries & stress. Aries has so much wonderful heat & vitality, that when there are no fires to fight, they have a habit of lighting the match. But even something as indefatigable as the Ram can sometimes burn out. Checkout some strategies in Burn Baby Burn.
Mercury is now in Taurus, presenting a whole heap of new challenges on the communication front. Read all about it from the workplace viewpoint (and find out just what fridges, silos and lightning bolts have to do with Mercury) in Fridges, Silos and Mercury in Taurus. From a personal viewpoint, Mercury really is about taking the time to think and developing firm viewpoints. Time to think… and time to settle down.
Also in Taurus is Venus, who has come home to take it sloooow. In Taurus, Venus likes the good things in life- chocolate, massage… and possibly even both of these combined. The How to Manual for Venus in Taurus in Read My Body Language.
Elsewhere on the blog:
- Flying High- one for the astro peeps on Jupiter transits through the 9th house and
- Pluto Retrograde & Cosmos Sex Quizzes- not what you think… for the astro students, just how much do the outer planets influence you?
What’s happening up there?
OK, not a whole lot happening next week:
- A New Moon at around 25 Aries at 10.30(ish)pm 14 April… Sydney time, of course. This New Moon makes no really close aspects to other planets (Neptune is a little wide at 28 Aquarius), so this New Moon is really about You and the actions that You take for You. Check out what part of life this New Moon highlights in your chart.
- Mercury is stationary in Taurus and will turn retrograde next Sunday. The usual people will be impacted- people with heavy Gemini or Virgo charts. This time also, Taureans and anyone who has chart points between 2-12 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius) will feel the effects. Usual rules apply re care over communication, double check messages, travel plans & quadruple check (& avoid if possible) contracts, big purchases, software implementations. Previous posts on Mercury retrograde can be found here. The best recipe for this one is regularity & routine.
Until next time
