Chart for the Full Moon in Cancer ~ 29 December 2020

Happy New Year, Dear Readers!

We sit poised at the transition from a very difficult year into what we hope will be a much better one. This is a bit of a turning point for me as well. I really need to recharge my batteries for a while, so I'm taking a much-needed and long-overdue break for health reasons. I'll be fine, but I do need to take some time off.

For this update, please enjoy a reprint of one of my own articles for a Full Moon in Cancer that I think will resonate with most of us. :‑)

I'll do my best to provide some guest articles when I can, at the New Moons and Full Moons, as well as Newsletters announcing updates to the website (like when a new article or set of Low-Down transits is posted). Unfortunately, I can't guarantee an article will be for every update. However, my day-to-day transits for the Low-Down on the Far-Out will still be available, along with daily Sun sign horoscopes.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. I am so grateful for your appreciation, support, and for hanging in there with me. It means more to me than you know. ♡ 

I wish you and your loved ones a Very Happy New Year, and a much better 2021 than 2020 was! :‑)  Keep staying safe. Stay sane. And stay awesome. The world needs you.

Finding Your Way Home

I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.

Dec. 29 ~ FULL MOON IN CANCER (08:53 Cancer/Capricorn)

(This is a reprinted article by Wendy Guy, based on the Full Moon in Cancer on 28-Dec-2012, edited for current relevance.)

How do you feel safe when the world is turning around you like a tornado?

Spin can be a good thing sometimes. It can be exciting (we pay money to be spun out of control on a thrilling midway ride). It can also be helpful to get a fresh perspective by viewing your situation in a different context (sometimes called "putting a new spin on the truth").

Spin can also be scary, disorienting, disruptive or destructive; like a tornado. You can get yanked out of your centre and lose your sense of control as you're hurled out to the far reaches of the galaxy. You could also "spin the truth" too much, so that any real meaning becomes obscured or shredded.

The good news about this Full Moon in Cancer (and continuing for the 2 weeks, until the New Moon in Capricorn on Jan. 13, 2021) is that there's no shortage of resources, perspective and insight.

The bad news—or maybe just tricky news—is that there's also a lot of energy flying around that makes it a challenge to access, absorb and benefit from these assets that nurture a sense of safety, protection, belonging and well-being. And if it's been so long that you can't remember what that feels like, then it's time to find new ways to re-discover it.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
~ Claudia Black

On a psychological level, Cancer (wherein the Full Moon resides) is our home. It's where we feel we belong, where we can be and not feel like we're suddenly stranded on a distant planet being seen by others as a 3-eyed alien with green tentacles.

To feel that we're home means there is a sense of familiarity and acceptance around us. We're safe, secure, protected and that it's safe to trust. It is what every child needs, and sadly, what we often didn't get enough of. This is true for an actual child as well as the adult's Inner Child. Without having received some degree of Cancerian nurturing from someone while we're growing up, it's extremely difficult to achieve healthy growth, confidence, responsibility, relationships and a sense of self.

Thankfully, we all have a second chance at this, and even a third, fourth and so on. Part of our adult job description is to learn how to give that nurturing to ourselves, and to cultivate for ourselves those qualities that couldn't develop in our younger years. Step number one in this process is to unlearn the defence mechanisms we acquired earlier on, which allowed us to cope with and survive the environment that interfered with or damaged our earlier growth.

And yet, those means of coping can be valuable on their own. They have taught us how to deal with difficult circumstances and experiences. Life is full of onerous situations, and so it is important, even essential, that we cultivate a mixture of qualities in ourselves – both the tough protective shell that repels potential damage, and the soft vulnerable inner yolk that can absorb nurturing and can grow. The point is not to eliminate the benefits of a troubled past, but to be able to choose how you respond to the present and to become your own loving parent.

The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.
~ Maya Angelou, All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes

When life is continually chaotic, unpredictable, unsafe and disruptive (at any age), it's a serious challenge to achieve much of anything that's enduring or substantial. It's a bit like constantly stirring Jello and then wondering why it won't set. This Full Moon is a bit like trying to make Jello – there's a lot of adjustment, struggle and commotion going on that somehow needs to be balanced out with calm, stability and healing.

Iin order to gain full access to that stability and balance, you will need to undergo some kind of transformation. Something must change in some fundamental way. For best results, this change also needs to bring out a more authentic You; in other words, it can't just be change for change's sake, nor an attempt to become something you're not.

The Cancer Moon (and hence, the Cancer part of you, as well as others) is looking for a home—literal or metaphorical—where it can find security, safety, belonging and wellbeing. The problem is there are so many other factors in the chart that are agitating, irritating and complicating that Cancer could easily get lost on its way home.

These factors could make it harder to take in or feel satisfied by nurturing energy, whether that involves you giving it to others, them giving it to you, or even you giving it to yourself. As a result, you (or they) might feel frustrated, unappreciated or drained by efforts meant to be healing, comforting and supportive.

There's no limit to how complicated things can get, on account of one thing always leading to another.
~ E.B. White

This energy will linger, to one degree or another, until the reset button gets pushed on Jan.11 at the New Moon in Capricorn. A New Year is also upon us, which will be born in much the same energy as the Full Moon in Cancer.

Watch for the opportunities that strengthen you, as well as the obstacles that challenge you. The important thing to remember until then is that you have access to the whole spectrum. People and things that will help you stay grounded and centred, and people and things that will yank you out of your centre. Situations that will unsettle your philosophy and beliefs about life, and situations that will help you find your faith again. Circumstances that will make you feel like you are no longer in control of your own life, and those that will help you become empowered again.

Whether you enjoy life best when it's wild and woolly or calm and serene, deep and mysterious or refreshingly straightforward, there's lots for everyone to go around. I've never ended with such a long quote but it's so beautiful, I couldn't resist. I think it speaks well to this holistic energy. It also seems fitting that it was written by Carl Sagan, who shared a love of the planets and stars but from a very different perspective.

May our own planet's collective perspective expand and grow in the year, and years, to come.

Happy 2021!

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.
~ Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space

Day to Day Transits for the Next 2 Weeks

Dec. 30 ~ Venus square Neptune (18:26 Sagittarius/Pisces)

Money, material resources, relationships and pleasure could be subject to confusion, deception, or unrealistic wishful thinking under this transit. It may seem that what you thought you had (love, friendship, pleasure, money, resources) has suddenly disappeared or isn't as dependable as you thought it was. You might feel disappointed, disillusioned, sad or alone, but this is more likely to be a passing phase than a serious crisis. The question is: what are your secret longings and subtle desires that may be operating unconsciously? These could be clouding your ability to relate to people and situations in your life. Old addictions, depression or idealism may surface as way of dealing with feelings. A better outlet would be to channel your feelings and experiences into creativity, beauty, inspiration and compassion; for example, art, music or helping others.

Dec. 31 ~ Venus opposite North Lunar Node (19:54 Sagittarius/Gemini)  (Jan. 1 in AEDT)

This is a good time to let go of the "things" you don't need anymore. It's a time to release your creativity and transform them into new resources and assets. This could mean cleaning out your closets and selling the discards in a yard sale, for example. You might decide to change your hair style or something else about your appearance. Perhaps you discover that you're making a different impression on people than you intended, and this leads to a revision of your social skills. Or you could get feedback from someone close to you that challenges you to change your self-image. Something (or someone) that has been prominent in your life – in relationships, pleasure, partnerships, finances, possessions, beauty or appearance – is ready to be let go. You might need to say good-bye to someone you've been close to because the relationship isn't working anymore – or you might find you're able to let go of feelings that have been blocked and give yourself to a connection with someone. You might simply assimilate it into the background where it is no longer "front and centre," or you might need to cut ties altogether. Or, you could be ready to express something that has been brewing for a while, like creative self-expression or giving someone feedback. "Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater" (as your grandmother used to say), but be on the lookout for something that is ready to subside from your priority list.

Dec. 31 ~ Moon comes In-Bounds (00:07 Leo)  (Jan. 1 in AEDT)

The Moon comes back In-Bounds (In-B) today. When the Moon is Out of Bounds (OOB) your emotional state may be a bit erratic, detached or isolated. This could be either a welcome change or a difficult energy for you to deal with. When the Moon comes In-Bounds, you typically return to whatever your "normal" is. If your OOB journey was stressful or intense, you may find some relief now that the Moon is back In-B and/or you are in a position to integrate into your life whatever you learned from your experience. If your OOB journey felt like a welcome reprieve from the everyday stress or "noise" of the world around you, coming back In-B will hopefully give you a fresh start, like coming back from a brief vacation. The Moon will go OOB next in about 2 weeks, give or take a couple/few days.

Jan. 1 ~ Mercury sextile Neptune (18:28 Capricorn/Pisces)

Your mind is very open to imagination, dreams and compassion under this transit, with a little applied effort and focus. This can be a very creative time, when ideas flow like a magical river. It can also be easy to get caught up in yearning and fantasizing about your hidden wishes, although it is possible to channel this into creative expression. (e.g., writing poetry, dancing, wistful music, singing in the shower, whatever!) The possible disadvantage is that you might want so much to reach a state of inspired intuition, magical outlook and effortless communication, that you are willing to be deceived rather than fall short of what you are hoping for. Listening sympathetically to others' problems may come easily now, and you are more likely to get a compassionate response from others about your own problems. However, it may also be difficult to draw clear and firm boundaries with others, since you are more susceptible to the emotional gravity of others. It is ultimately a time for optimism, hope, creativity and intuition, although it's wise to keep at least one foot on the ground.

Jan. 2 ~ Mars leaves the Shadow (28:08 Aries)  (Jan. 3 in AEDT)

Mars now leaves the Retrograde Shadow – the span of the Zodiac where it was retrograde up until about 2 months ago. Mars goes through 3 phases in its retrograde cycle. The pre-retrograde phase is where Mars enters the Shadow – the area of the Zodiac where it will go retrograde – and lasts for 6-9 weeks. The retrograde phase is where Mars appears to go backwards in the sky (retrograde motion), which lasts for about 8-12 weeks. The post-retrograde phase is when Mars makes his final pass through the Shadow, again lasting about 6-9 weeks.

If you think back to these time periods, you may notice a pattern involving Mars-related areas of your life. This includes physical and mental energy, anger and assertiveness, conflict and challenge, aggression and hostility, courage and risk-taking, motivation and enthusiasm, ambition and obsession, disruptive change and putting things into action. You might have experienced either an increase or decrease in some of these areas over the last 6 months, especially during the retrograde period.

Now, Mars is leaving the post-retrograde Shadow phase, which finishes this long retrograde cycle. If Mars-related areas became stronger and more noticeable, or if they seemed to fade into the background or dropped in strength for a while, they are likely returning to their "normal" state (whatever that is for you). We will not see another Mars Retrograde Shadow again for another 1.5 years.

Mars is a more straightforward, regular Mars now, instead of being Mars with an especially pointed axe to grind (over and over...).

Here are the key dates of this Mars cycle (for North American Eastern Time):

Jan. 4 ~ Mercury comes In-Bounds (23:53 Capricorn)  (Jan. 5 in AEDT)

Directness of speech, fast perceptions and an attitude of "just do it" mark this transit. While Mercury sprints through Aries, you may feel the impulse to cut through and get to the point in conversations and other forms of communication. Body language speaks loudly now, as do actions. At its best, this transit can help words, awareness and insight to arise spontaneously, combined with the courage to express them. On the other hand, you could also say things out of anger, impatience or impulse that you later regret. It may be a time when you'd rather cut to the chase – acknowledge things and move on – rather than hang around to process the details. It's a great time to spin ideas that can be developed later. It is also a good time to think independently and follow your thoughts into new perspectives.

Jan. 4 ~ Mercury conjunct Pluto (24:19 Capricorn)  (Jan. 5 in GMT, AEDT)

Deep insights and passionate communication are possible under this transit ...although, so is speaking more forcefully than you intend to about things that require a bit of delicacy or discretion. This can be a new beginning in understanding the deeper motives and dynamics of what is happening in your life, although this could happen with great intensity or obsession. The light can finally start to go on in the darker corners that have eluded you. Although what you see there might be both illuminating and disturbing, it is ultimately something you can grow from, which can transform your mental outlook into something more meaningful and resilient. This is a time when you can start to shed and leave behind old worn out perceptions or ineffective forms of communication. You also have an increased ability to take thoughts, ideas and information and transform them into something healing ...or wounding. Choose your words carefully and mindfully. Writing down your thoughts and ideas to capture the energy of this transit can help you gather the deeper qualities.

Jan. 6 ~ Mars enters Taurus (until 03-Mar-2021)  (Jan. 7 in AEDT)

Making steady progress with your goals and stabilising your energy are among the effects of this transit. In general, this is a good time to move forward with your ambitions, especially doing the "grunt work" of routine, methodical work – putting one foot in front of the other, as it were, and making slow steady progress in your projects. It's a great time to "make hay while the Sun shines" but don't stay out so long you get sunburned. In other words, be careful not to get so locked into one direction or focus that you become stubborn, rigid, counterproductive, overcautious, or burn out from workaholism. It's common for physical energy to sag and slow down somewhat, although it will usually make up for it in endurance. Mars wants to be fast and impulsive; Taurus wants to go slow and steady. The trick is to pace yourself: do a little every day and don't beat yourself up if you can't do it all at once.

Jan. 8 ~ Mercury enters Aquarius (until 15-Mar-2021)

Mercury in Aquarius brings objectivity, detached mental focus, and communication that strives for unprecedented breadth and height – even to the point of adopting an "ivory tower" mentality. This is a good transit for anything requiring a scientific or analytical approach, as well as anything that calls for you to "think outside of the box." This can be a time when you start to see old familiar situations in new ways, giving you a fresh perspective on things. This planetary energy is not likely to be supportive if you need to take a gentle or sensitive approach to personal interaction, however, since you may be more tempted to just say what needs to be said and let the chips fall where they may. Your mental outlook may be focused on upcoming possibilities, and it can be a good time to map out future plans and try on new ideas, since you are likely to be more open-minded to things you had previously dismissed as unrealistic or too "out there." This can be a time when you suffer from "cabin fever" and need to get out of the house more, especially if you've been cooped up for a long time due to bad weather, hard work or just lack of motivation to do something different. Breaking free of old routines can be a good thing – just remember you have to live with whatever mess you make in the process.

Jan. 8 ~ Venus enters Capricorn (until 01-Feb-2021)  (Jan. 9 in AEDT)

Friendly, abundant Venus travels through serious, structured Capricorn, bringing out her grounded, material side. It may be time to make new plans and commitments for material or relationship goals. It can be a time to get serious and make some solid decisions about what works and what doesn't. It may help to organise and systemise the way you approach relationships, finances, resources and pleasure. An example of systemising pleasure is to schedule regular time to pamper yourself, or to make a point of doing the hard work that will pay off in pleasure later (like eating healthier food or working out more). Although this might seem a bit unromantic or uninspiring, you'll find that laying the groundwork for what you want to attract into your life will provide support for the rewards to come.

Jan. 8 ~ Sun sextile Neptune (18:37 Capricorn/Pisces)  (Jan. 9 in AEDT)

Faith in the bountiful blessings of the Universe is within reach under this transit...but then, so is the fantasy that you will be magically granted anything you wish for. Although this is mostly a very positive energy, you could become so immersed in your longing for the ideal that you have trouble dealing with the less-than-ideal realities that still must be dealt with. Gaining the benefit from this transit will still require some effort. Hope, optimism and imagination are in the air, which could bring some relief from any depression or discouragement you might be feeling. Your creativity and imagination can be very inspired under this transit. Your sense of self could also get an infusion of uplifting vision, and you may experience a sense of mission, feeling that you are truly a Child of the Universe. There is potential now to lift you out of the ordinary and into the sublime – spiritually, creatively, romantically or compassionately – although this will require your cooperation to take advantage of it. Enjoy it while it lasts, but before you make changes based on what might feel like a permanent condition, remember that this is mostly a temporary influence and you will still have to live within the bounds of the physical world after it passes. Don't make overly optimistic promises now, that you will have to fulfil later when the euphoria wears off.

Jan. 8 ~ Mercury square Mars (01:00 Aquarius/Taurus)  (Jan. 9 in GMT, AEDT)

Fiery speech, argument and hot debate characterise this transit. This could come in the form of conflict, or it might be stimulating and challenging – or both! One thing to watch out for is that you may have a short fuse for a temper, and the same may be true for others around you. It can be a time when you blurt out things you later regret, or you might finally find the courage to do something that's long overdue. The problem is that one can easily look like the other, and what feels like courage in the moment might look more like reckless haste in retrospect. Harsh words can't always be taken back, so keep a grip on your objectivity and better judgment while you're verbally fighting the dragons. Use this energy to stoke your motivational fires, and use your ideas to generate positive action. It can help to pace your mental energy like racing a horse, which can harness abundant energy to fuel your decisions, courage and resolve.

Jan. 9 ~ Venus trine Mars (01:15 Capricorn/Taurus)  (Jan. 10 in AEDT)

It will be a lot easier to balance assertiveness with receptivity under this transit. In fact, it is a great time to take firm action that requires a sensitive touch, and to negotiate agreements in a way that is diplomatic, fair and powerful. Your ability to attract what you desire (money, love, pleasure, flirting, etc.), and to act on those desires, is strong right now, so use it wisely. This may include romantic attraction and sexual interaction, or it might involve artistic creativity. It could also be a time when your actions attract money and possessions, but it could also go the other way – your spending may also increase! Again: use this energy wisely and don't overextend yourself, but do have fun with it!

Jan. 9 ~ Mercury conjunct Saturn (02:40 Aquarius)  (Jan. 10 in GMT, AEDT)

It's time to take a serious look at the circumstances and situations in your life. This transit may not exactly be "party time" but it's a great transit to have when you need to take a dispassionate, objective, clear view of life. You may be called upon to make a decision about something. For example, you might need to commit yourself to a particular plan of action, or start developing plans toward a particular goal. In either case, it may be necessary to limit or let go of other options. You might come to the conclusion that something has run its course and it's time to leave it behind – like an opinion or project or mindset. It's a time when your perception, thoughts and words may not be exciting, imaginative or entertaining, but you're probably more able to be clear, grounded decisive and hard working.

Jan. 10 ~ Moon goes Out of Bounds (22:13 Sagittarius)  (Jan. 11 in GMT, AEDT)

The Moon goes Out of Bounds (OOB) by Declination, during which time your feelings and emotions may move in a different kind of rhythm. One possible effect is that you might feel more disconnected from the world around you; perhaps a bit alone, lonely or isolated. Or, this could be a welcome change where you can let the stresses of the world roll off your back more easily. Or, your emotions could be a bit erratic, extreme or harder to contain. The common thread through these diverse experiences is that your feeling state may reach beyond your usual range of feelings. If you're an artist, musician, writer or other creative person, this can be a very inspiring time as your creativity and imagination could more easily flow into unusual ideas, whims and impulses.

A planet goes OOB when its declination is greater than 23:26 (23 degrees and 26 minutes), which is the maximum declination of the Sun, and the Sun defines the "Bounds." The Moon goes OOB twice a month for about 8-9 years at a time (and remains In-Bounds for about 8-9 years in between). Currently the Moon's declination is able to go beyond 23:26 from March 2020 to January 2030, peaking at a maximum declination of 28:42 in September 2025 (called the Maximum Lunar Standstill).

So for now, as the maximum declination of the Moon increases from month to month, so will the strength of the OOB effects. Watch to see how you respond to these times. You can work on finding ways to channel this energy into positive, productive, creative experiences, or use it as an opportunity to take another step in your emotional healing.

Jan. 11 ~ Mercury conjunct Jupiter (05:15 Aquarius)  (Jan. 12 in AEDT)

This aspect can make you quite talkative and your mind flooded with ideas. Be careful you don't blurt out any secrets! Your stream of consciousness ideas can flow abundantly right now with optimism and visionary possibilities. Write down your best ideas for later development, since you may be having too much fun playing with ideas, to stop and make them manifest. Basic perceptions and simple communication can provide food for thought that feeds your greater understanding and philosophical insight. Your point of view expands to identify opportunities, possibilities and the broader implications of what is happening around you. You might get a flash of vision, insight and inspiration. You could be called upon to form an opinion, consider a different viewpoint, expand your knowledge, or make a judgement call. Your conscious awareness is open to spiritual experiences right now.

Jan. 11 ~ Mercury sextile Chiron (05:16 Aquarius/Aries)  (Jan. 12 in AEDT)

Your mental focus and communication could get an injection of healing energy under this transit, as long as you are prepared to put some effort into getting it. Your spirits can become uplifted now, from seeing a light at the end of the tunnel or from finding a light that guides you along the path in front of you. It will not, however, make the tunnel or the path go away; you'll still have to walk the walk. But your mental perspective can become more accepting of inconsistencies and frustrations under this transit, which can alleviate a lot of stress and make the journey a bit smoother. Mental struggles and critical "self-talk" may find some reconciliation and acceptance that brings peace of mind. You have an increased ability to find the right words and understanding to help others with their problems, by providing insightful feedback. To get the most out of this transit, aim to find a mental outlook and communication style that can tolerate contradiction without having to eradicate one in order to justify the other.

Jan. 11 ~ Jupiter sextile Chiron (05:16 Aquarius/Aries)  (Jan. 12 in AEDT)

There is a chance to make some progress in the area of spiritual healing now. What that means is that it may be easier to bring old wounds and lingering hardship in your life to a renewed sense of optimism and faith that meaningful change is possible. When we're talking about Chiron, there's always a level of hardship that lingers and can't simply be wiped away, in the same way that you can't "un-ring" a bell. But it is possible to live without that hardship dominating your life or your spirit. Jupiter is here to remind you how you can rise above the hardships and live closer to a state of hope, joy and gratitude for the blessings in your life. Jupiter may or may not bring a chance to actually improve that hardship in some substantial way, but it is capable of lifting your attitude out of pessimism if you let it.

Jan. 12 ~ Mercury square Uranus (06:43 Aquarius/Taurus)  (Jan. 13 in AEDT)

Flashes of insight can show you new clarity but you might not like the answers you get, since they could disturb your logical perception of what's what. You might get some news or learn come information that shakes you up in some way. This isn't necessarily bad, since this may be necessary to open your mind to something you've been resisting. There's a Higher Truth here that wants to be told (by you or to you), but the way it's phrased can make a big difference in the reaction. There is a risk of "shooting off your mouth before your brains are loaded," as the saying goes, and impulsive or reckless communication and ideas could create more problems than they solve. It will probably help to listen inside yourself first to discover what you really need to say, and then figure out how to say it in a way that doesn't cause unnecessary damage. Strive to shine a light of truth without blinding anyone with it.

Jan. 12 ~ Venus square Chiron (05:17 Capricorn/Aries)  (Jan. 13 in AEDT)

You may be forced to make adjustments to relationships and/or finances now, as you face situations in these areas that just don't want to balance out the way you want them to. You may feel a bit like you're in a catch-22 (no-win situation), where the more you try to find balance and harmony, the more you feel like you're chasing your own tail around in circles. This is a time when healing in relationships and financial problems may be difficult to obtain. Harmony in these areas can seem impossible or blocked, yet it is still necessary to keep trying. By trying anyway, it may be possible to find a solution that meets your needs, even if it may not be what you wanted, hoped for or expected. Strive to find a creative solution that draws on your best side.
