My weekly Astro Cocktail features a jigger of astrology with a splash of Tarot pulled exclusively for each sign. For a top shelf blend of some cosmic advice also read your rising sign if you know what it is. Remember that the stars and planets are there to be our designated emotional drivers when we need to find our way through life.
"As Above, So Below" ~ Hermes
Well we start the week off still under the influence of the retrograde Mars which has been traveling backwards since December 20, 2009. Mars rules action, initiation, machinery, passion, our sexuality and sexual energy. It is no wonder that most of us have been dealing with everything from stalled cars to stalled relationships along with the return of some old lovers. Put them all together and there is the recipe for one, whopping cosmic hangover. Wonder if we can make it through the next few weeks before Mars finally goes direct on March 10, 2010? This still isn’t a good time to be the initiator in any dealings since the Mars retrograde will block your moves. Wait for others to make the first attempt so as to give yourself a better edge in getting what you want. The rule of thumb here is : he who speaks first is sure to make an ass out of himself.
Jupiter, the benefic planet, just went into the sign of Pisces, reminding us of where we need to be spiritually connected and rewarding us along the way. Jupiter brings us the optimism that we need to get through all of the stalled out Mars retrograde bullshit. We can finally look forward to enjoying life through some rose colored wine glasses.
