Strangely, kind of a quiet day, in spite of any disturbances generated by Venus quincunx Ceres. After the revelations of the eclipse, which may only now begin to dawn, we are likely to experience a ‘making waves’ vibe that ruffles relationships and/ or fiances, and brings values into question, and this is so regardless of the way that, when we consult our sense of inner knowing, we get a straight, dependable answer that’s highly expressive of our true priorities and standards (Vesta parallel Pallas). Don’t be mislead or distracted by the waves; know that as long as choices echo highest values, you’ll remain on the right track–or at least make decisions that suit and express you, even if you end up putting yourself into an untenable position.
Today’s word image is a truck full of mannequins. Here’s an online description of the origins of the word ‘mannequin’: ” 1902, “model to display clothes,” from French mannequin (15c.), from Dutch manneken. A French form of the same word that yielded manikin, and sometimes mannequin was used in English in a sense “artificial man” (especially in translations of Hugo). Originally of persons, in a sense where we might use “model.” Later (by 1939) of artificial model figures to display clothing.” The part that caught my attention was ‘artificial man’–and a truckload of them suggests a crowd of ‘fake people’. Is there a group like this in your life? Would you like to get away from them? Do you find yourself inadvertently a part of this group? Consider them an example of what and who not to be.
