Forecast 8/7 After yesterday’s movement, today may feel as though detours arte everywhere. The key when encountering a detour is to remind yourself to “reboot” your brain to cope with it.

Don’t be in a hurry, whether you’re driving or meeting a deadline (which sounds counter-intuitive). Allow yourself to go with the turns instead of fighting against them. Glance at your reflection in the rear-view mirror, whether literally or figuratively because there’s always a reason why you got here.

Whatever the apparent struggle, it is not helped by frustration, so find ways to release it. Exercise class in the middle of the day, meditation audio in your ipod at lunch or gazing at a picture that soothes you while thinking of nothing else. It’s not that things don’t happen today, it’s just that wrinkles pop up and they must be ironed out. Don’t take it personally if possible.

swims into the sign of Cancer at 9:43 am, putting an emphasis on the joys of harvested food, flowers and time at your favorite “nests”.

Jot down destinations and the people with whom you want to enjoy them. Let this be your “looking forward” list. The moon is VOC* from 4:04 pm ET until the next day.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Aries, do some movement- either exercise, walk or drive… because the desire to move forward can be thwarted by the VOC. If you’re going somewhere new make sure you have clear directions and a map because fast movement can miss turns.
