Although the cosmos blesses us with a day to integrate yesterday's intensity, we still have plenty of work to do. It's tempting to luxuriate in the sweet pleasures of the Moon's harmonious aspects to jolly Jupiter and beautiful Venus. But bringing the energy into physical manifestation is challenging until later in the day when the Moon joins action-hero Mars. Nevertheless, indulgence is tempered by responsibility when Luna opposes karmic Saturn.

Your brain power is cranked up high and even if you're just sitting in contemplation, you can hear words as they fly toward you from every direction. But you're not one to wait around for something special to happen; if an opportunity doesn't come knocking early in the day, you will go out looking for one later. In the meantime, use your imagination to explore every contingency possible. Capture the power of the moment by weaving your thoughts into stories with outcomes you wish to manifest.

Today was cloudy and cool so it was the motivation behind spending all day in bed. Sleep was much more preferable than going out to freeze or to attend the last day of the Tulip Festival. A dull cloudy sky doesn’t have much to light the colours of the flowers nor the green of the grass.


Descriptive English Writing Rules?
What do we know about the descriptive writing rules? Know the descriptive writing of the critters before you compose the sentence.
1)The cow jumped over the moon.
2)The cat leaped over the moon.
3)The submarine submerged under the moon.
The rules of composing English is an art in that it is creativity within the rigid rules that govern composition. Vocabulary exists for each and every language. So it is that English, being a very predatory language, can use descriptions used in other languages. Rules and vocabulary evolve as we encounter and incorporate different languages. Back to school, eh?

A resurgence of emotional sensitivity can create trouble today, especially if we take ourselves too seriously. The reflective Moon swims into watery Cancer at 7:24 am EDT, reminding us that the protective walls we erect won't necessarily keep out bad vibes. Someone's words stimulate an unpleasant memory when Mercury the Messenger forms an uneasy aspect with wounded Chiron. Confident Jupiter overcompensates by encouraging us to slip into denial.

You might have an attack of Mother Hen Syndrome today; you want to take everyone under your wing and protect them from all the evil influences in the world. Although your intentions are probably nothing but well-meaning, others think you're being overly controlling. You defend your actions and your integrity by claiming you only wish the best for everyone. Everything seems pretty straightforward on the surface, but increases in complexity the more you dig in your heels. Sometimes, relinquishing control is the highest form of love, even if it doesn't seem the kindest.

Sleep started at about 4:00 am. I managed to sleep right through until about 10:00 am. Our plan was to go to the garage sale in the Glebe suburb of central downtown. It was about 11:00 am when we finally hopped onto our electric wheelchairs and made a dash for the Glebe. I took a few pictures along the scenic route we took. The sky had puffy and wispy clouds that did little to diminish the hot rays of the sun beaming down. It was hot in the sunlight and I liked it like that.

The cosmos is engaged in a tug-of-war and we may find ourselves caught in the middle today. Red-hot Mars is pulling one way and cold Saturn is pulling the other. Mars is the gas pedal initiating action while Saturn is the brake bringing everything to a halt. Frustration abounds when bossy Mars tells us to go while naysayer Saturn commands us to stop. Meanwhile, the Moon shifts into expressive Leo at 8:11 am EDT, nudging us into forward motion.

Your options seem to be more limited than you thought. In fact, you might decide to make your next round of plans through a process of elimination. Rather than choosing a path into the future and then making it happen, you could end up taking the only road ahead of you after you filter out those that will not feasibly work. But don't surrender the dreams that inspire you the most now. Even if you can't make them real yet, no one can take the magic of your visions away from you.

It was a cold and rainy day worth staying in bed and sleeping away the dismal hours. It was about 4:00 pm when the rain quit and we decided to take the van up to Herongate Mall. Peter was of a mind not to have to deal with any rain so that was his answer to the problem.

Me, I have other problems. I have the spitting disease. I cough until my bones rattle in spasms of painful exertions. There isn’t any cure for my ailments other than the inevitable end. I will take what I know to the Great Maker and his multiverse. I know what I know will add greatly to the knowledge accumulated on the other side. I have been there, so I will know where I will go without fear or trepidation.

It has been overcast in a threatening way. But, for all of that, it hasn’t rained at all. The ground has remained dry. There are bands of storms that are upwind and certain to cover our area. A warning of scattered showers remains in effect. It makes no difference to the list of things on the agenda. Today is the day of surgery and Thursday is the day to see Dr.Pitt for my other surgery, So it goes that humans break down and need repairs. I am no different in that big respect.

I tried to show something of my latest sketches to the eye doctor. I could have done a much better job of showing my artistic talent but it went astray so she wasn’t all that impressed. I told her I used to be healthy and owned and drove my own tractor trailers all over the continent. Now, that impressed her. Then I waited to be the last one to have laser surgery for the day. You might say that I am a patient patient.

On the way home, we stopped off at the mall. The first place we went to was the pet shop to see cats. They haven’t had cats since Christmas time. Even puppies were not to be seen today. But, they do have birds, guinea pigs, fish, rabbits, and an occasional lizard. I am glad they are not into supplying rare things such as spiders, monkeys, and such.

From the pet shop we went to the World of Wally, as Peter puts it. We spent half an hour tracking along the aisles for a total of three things we could think of buying. Paper was on sale and the price of apricots more than made up for it. With a total of three articles, we went to the checkouts with tellers. It isn’t kosher to use the self checkouts that literally deny jobs and work for people who need the jobs no matter what the cost of checkout errors.
