The Perseid showers are due, but may be obscured by the brightness of the Moon–I’m going to take a peek anyway http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32330676/ns/technology_and_science-space/?GT1=43001
The current tension of Sedna square Earth, Jupiter, and Chiron, with the latter two quincunx Vesta and Uranus trine Vesta, may act like a Universal slingshot: momentarily we don’t grasp the way what we know and how we hurt applies to our material situation, and though what we hold sacred, the home life, or the sexual inclination gives us feedback that should allow us to adjust, we don’t–we’re just too invested in being unique, rebellious, or ahead of everyone else, and we find it acceptable by calling it ‘being ourselves’! We’d do better to back off (and the Aries Moon isn’t helping, one bit, instead egging us on into territory that is pure Willfulness) and perhaps seek refuge in Venus in Cancer sextile Mercury; this offers, if we’re open to it, love seated in nurture and caring, that’s easily communicated–a good place to ground ourselves until the Moon slips into Taurus.
And if this isn’t a byproduct of Pluto in Capricorn, I don’t know what is http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32374533/ns/business-eye_on_the_economy
