“In the long run the pessimist may be proven right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip.” ~Daniel L. Reardon
This is a perfect quote for todays energy.
Over in Gemini we have Jupiter and Mercury still swapping ideas. Venus, who doesn’t like to miss out on much, is now within shouting distance too. Today, and tomorrow, keep your eyes and ears open to possibilities. You know, those little connections and synchronicities that spark or inspire something else- another opportunity, another idea, another connection, another train of thought.
On the other side of the zodiac, we have the Moon in steadfast and serious Capricorn. Being ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is eminently practical and hardworking (and yes, I know some of you Capricorns aren’t like that, so please don’t write to me) and tends towards pessimism. Jupiter, we know, is the eternal optimist and the eternal opportunist. Jupiter doesn’t see the glass as either half for or half empty- he just sees room for more wine. Jupiter in Gemini has absolutely nothing in common with The Moon in Capricorn. Nothing. Completely different agendas.
Which brings me to more about today.
After already completing the monthly results catch up with Pluto and dealing with the rebellions of Uranus earlier this morning, the Moon is now in a long void with no more (traditional) aspects being made until a trine to Mars very early tomorrow morning- just before she leaves Capricorn for Aquarius.
Under an unaspected Capricorn Moon, your emotional mood can tend towards the gloomy part of the spectrum. The glass is looking pretty darned empty, hope is close to zero, everything has a recognizable downside and you’re having an attack of the not good enoughs.
I’ve written before that I struggle with these few days each month.
What to do? If this is you, you have a couple of choices. You can either:
- Indulge in the melancholy and the poor me’s- after all, it is one or two days a month, and even the brightest ray of sunshine needs some grey downtime.
- Stick your head down and your bum up and work through it. At the end of the day you might even have ticks against your “to do” list.
- Fake it. Wear bright clothes, play happy music, talk to people who can be relied upon to lift your mood. I have a playlist especially for days like these when I do need to fake it. It has music on it that can’t help but make me feel better.
I’ll leave that one with you…
