(...for tomorrow, July 25, 2008 from Cafe Astrology for All Signs)
The Last Quarter Moon is exact today, with the Sun in Leo squaring off with the Moon in Taurus at 2:43 PM EDT. The Last Quarter Moon phase points to some sort of crisis of consciousness. After basking in the awareness symbolized by the full light of the Moon at the time of last week's Full Moon, we disperse our knowledge and come to a point when we need to sort out what works for us—and what doesn't—in preparation for next week's New Moon, when something new is born once again. This is not the best time to start a major project, as the decreasing light of the Moon symbolizes a descent into unconsciousness. It's time to begin finishing up the details of that which was conceived at the last New Moon on July 2nd. Venus in awkward aspect to Jupiter and Mercury in awkward aspect to Pluto today suggests possible social blunders. A strong desire for the pleasures of life is emphasized now, although our eyes are often bigger than our stomach. Challenges in relationships encountered today are likely due to overblown expectations. It can be challenging to find a balance between responsibilities and the desire for self-gratification. Something we write or say could trigger power struggles or hostility from others. Decisions made now are unlikely to be objective. Re-assessing decisions we have made already, or adjusting our plans, may be in order. The Moon enters Taurus at 9:15 AM.
Translation: not that it is always true, or that it always comes to pass, but I will always refer to astrology. Why? Because it often has sage advice if anything.
Anyways I have unfortunately no time to write this evening. Big day tomorrow and the day after that, and the day after that. I only have time to bimbo , have some tea and get ready for the next day!! I'll write more meaningful posts in a few day!!
Update on a few things:
* the sinners got told by the condo board that further disturbances would warrant police interaction. 2 days now and they're doing considerably better. At 3am this morning (and now at 5am again) they were reverting to their old habits as they again perched on their porch to preach. However within minutes (and probably the sound of our patio sliding door open) the noice ceased. Still idiots, just to a slightly less annoying degree.
* the car is STILL waiting for parts to be fixed from when it was vandalized 3 weeks ago. Oy, with buying a fairly rare (and older model) car. Seriously painfully long wait here with a plastic ziploc window.
* Wednesday it was 3 yrs ago that I lost someone very dear to me to colon cancer. Sad day, but found comfort talking to my BF about the loss of his mother who died only months prior the same year. He says he has never really absorbed it or let it out but did so prior to her death, praying feverishly to god to let her live. Immediately following her death he said he became numb and unresponsive, going through the motions of day to day life. I know exactly what he means.
* good news is, 27 pounds now in 50 days (June 5-today). Pretty impressed with myself so far and definitely teaching myself new eating habits. Lots of temptation around but nay, I cannot be dissuaded! Getting compliments from people (which at first was depressing. I lost 20 pounds and I swear nobody noticed! On the other hand maybe people aren't sure if they should say something? I was like man, am I so fat that the loss 20 pounds isn't visible?! Smaller fat people are orbiting around me, drawn into my gravitational pull...LOL)
