something about thinking vs doing

I found myself strangely drawn to a “to do” list today. Writing one, that is. And then prioritising it. Which then took me to into looking at what should be on the list and isn’t, and then what I should have been doing over the last couple of days while I have been occupied with a head cold so bad that it qualifies as man flu.

Yes, the Moon is in Virgo. And when the Moon is in Virgo you may find your mind straying to tick lists, accounts, bills, invoicing, cleaning, de-cluttering, worrying about what you haven’t done, complaining about why this kitchen bench is always so messy and seriously am I the only one who ever cleans it up? That all came out loud, didn’t it?

Or maybe it is that you have just spent the day thinking that you should be doing all these things. Thinking about tidying, thinking about training, thinking about starting healthier habits, thinking about getting your accounts in order, thinking about tackling that word count. Surely just thinking about Virgo things counts? Doesn’t it?

With the Moon about to conjunct Mars, whether you are thinking about Virgo things or doing Virgo things you will be thinking about it or doing it with more oomph.

Elsewhere, Mercury has moved into Leo, so the roaring may have drowned out the Virgo intentions. Anyways, if you want to know more about that one check out Darling You Were Fabulous.

More importantly, Venus is at a standstill at 7ish Gemini and will be direct in the next couple of days. If you’ve been reading any of the stuff I posted at the start of this retrograde period you would know that I warned about starting any relationships during the retrograde period. I think I also said that this doesn’t mean that you can’t have some fun during the retrograde- just don’t change your relationship status until Venus goes direct. Pleasure is pleasure and fun is fun and the station gives you a chance to re-think…if indeed you really want to draw breath long enough to re-think.

Anyways, if you have planets at or around 7 degrees of the mutable signs (that is Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces) Venus type issues may begin to resolve themselves. The Moon will be in Libra, so Venus type issues will be magnified over the next couple of days. If ever there was time to listen to your heart, it has plenty to say at the moment.
