The waxxing quarter moon in Sagittarius can give us a huge boost, especially when Jupiter is stationing direct. One image I get is that last incredible wallop Michael Phelps packed when he was doing butterfly at the Olympics. He was in second place and suddenly, in an impossible time frame, he rose from the water, lunged forward and won.
That’s how this week could feel but the lunges can go either way so aim carefully and safely. Starting this weekend, as Moon is in Sagittarius, we can put our fingers on a goal we have in sight. Aim for big, far, extensive and exaggerated, factoring in overzealousness. With Jupiter, stationary and going forward on Sunday, we can remember to measure all 9th house activities like immersing our minds in philosophy, taking long trips, involving ourselves in outdoor sporting events, publishing blogs websites and newspapers, ruffling the mix of multi-cultural lifestyles, being involved in big lawcases as well as religion from the spiritual to political from the organized to the non-organized.
This week the planets in Libra will square Jupiter one by one. Try not to be too happy or too sad. Try not to approach life too drunk or too sober. If you want to get skinny don’t even look at the dessert cart. If you are afraid your picture might end op in the paper — it will — and it will be big. Before we buy the entire life work of Goethe, we can start with this quote for the week, “Beware of dissipating your powers; strive constantly to concentrate them. Genius thinks it can do whatever it sees others doing, but is sure to repent of every ill-judged outlay.”
