When I first came across her, I didn’t really care for her. Oh, of course, she was cute and sassy (which is always a plus for any red blooded gay man), but a little too gynocentric for me. However, like a fine wine she has become an acquired taste.
So, who is this mesmerizing lady? I am not telling you yet!
On with the forecast…
This weekend starts off pretty well, but declines rather quickly. To begin, we have Venus in Gemini trine Saturn in Libra. Anytime, Saturn is in aspect to a planet it forces the planet to be rather sober and contained, which social Venus has great disdain for. Venus loves pleasure, relationships, money, and luxury – being put on a budget and being restricted from being a social diva is not really an experience she prefers. However, since the aspect is a trine she deals with it rather grudgingly. Sometimes every girl (even Might Aphrodite) needs a break! Venus and Saturn instruct us to play it safe this weekend with our friendships and relationships. Contain emotional reactions, and avoid those that tend towards the dramatic. In addition, if you do spend time socially confine it to deep friendships that are dependable and reliable.
Now the fun begins – not! Mercury, the weather maker of the week comes back again with two prickly aspects. The trickster planet will square Uranus and the on Sunday (Father’s Day) opposes Pluto beginning a rather nasty grand cross (Saturn joins the fun next week). This is a messy combination, which can lead to stress, disagreements, adversarial communications and downright nastiness. Mercury in square to Uranus is a highly reactive aspect that involves Mercury’s quicksilver tongue. This can be especially messy, because of Uranus’ restless and impatient nature. We could easily find ourselves in situations where our impatience may impede our good social graces. Mercury opposition to Pluto, on the other hand, is rather tense and compulsive. Oppositions via their own nature produce conflict, but since Mercury rules communications, arguments and stressful situations are bound to occur. Mercury oppose Pluto tends to see “what is wrong” with everything, rather than “what is right,” which can easily lead us down the dangerous road of obsession. This weekend there is a great need to practice strength and self-control to cope with our difficulties.
Now, back to the fun stuff – you still want to know about the lady I am crushing on? Well, her name is Marie Forleo and she is the webmistress of http://www.marieforleo.com . She has an amazing amount of content on her website (that is gynocentric), but I have come to find her rather refreshing, innovative, and to be frank – amazing! The reason that I have saved my “secret crush” until today is that she has a recent video that can help with the difficult energy of the weekend. It is called, “How to Immediately Stop Stressing Out.” I love her slogan, “everything is figure-out-able.” With the tense energy of this weekend, this video contains great information to help us through reacting to circumstances around us.
