- Peace be to England, if that war return
From France to England, there to live in peace.
England we love, and for that England’s sake
With burden of our armor here we sweat.
- King of France in Shakespeare’s King John 2.1.91-4

Aries:I do love me some Aries energies, and I do love me some Aries. But we got all kinds of organic, and inorganic, material coming unglued at this time. Part of this is the way the Sun, in Aries, lines up with Uranus, for a brief, shining moment. Part of this is Venus, going stationary, but not resolving out her pattern just yet, yonder back in Pisces. Part of this pesky Mercury Retrograde, not upon us, I mean, not in Aries, but this is a dynamic wherein there’s Aries, stuck in the middle. Rash actions are not well-served. Birthday celebrations are in order. Jumping — real or figurative — is not encouraged. Originally, I was going to make a Base-Jumping joke. However, I don’t know many places, around here, where that’s even possible, so no way that analogy would really apply. It’s too early for the lake rats to be out and cliff jumping, so that one doesn’t apply, either. So chill out, enjoy the celebrations, but maybe, but maybe? No activity that involves being airborne.
Taurus:Stop. Pause. Review, revise, and re-edit. Look it over one last time. Mars, the problem with Mars and his energies? He pushes, he makes us all a little antsy and impatient. “Now” is not soon enough, under this kind of Mars influence. With Mercury at the gateway, and a certain amount of reluctant energy floating freely? I can attribute that to Jupiter in its position, but that might be me. As a Taurus?
