Come-what-may knitting in the spirit of knitted minestrone using whatever yarn ends come your way. It's a come-what-may week, too -- all the pre-wedding, wedding day, and day-after planning and preparations are taking form and coming to life. Many good people are packing suitcases right now to travel here. Dresses are being fitted and altered. More 4" clear glass vases, one evening bag, and one good gluten-free lasagna meal are still being hunted down. The groom's mother is wondering why she is getting a haircut the day of the wedding and didn't do so last week. And she is ardently putting tanning lotion on her white legs so they match her arms. And wearing her heels for 15 minutes a day to get used to them. Whatever happens, there will be a wedding celebration and it will be wonderful.
Today is a waning moonday in fiery Aries. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars which is generally thought to be warrior-like energy but I like to think of it as a positive and powerful force instead. For instance, all that energy and spontaneity generated by Aries can be directed toward brainstorming and starting new projects or editing and improving old ones. What may be lacking now is patience to see things through or to understand where someone else is coming from.
Aries influences the health of the head and face, from the top to the nose. Conditions like headache, eyestrain and nose/sinus congestion may be more apparent now. As always, this too will pass -- the time the moon is in each planet is only two and a half days. Be cautious, breathe deep and drink lots of water.
Tomorrow Mercury goes direct, completing its second retrograde of 2012, the next being November 6-26.
Hoping you have a beautiful week, come what may.
