- Today's Activity -
Your activity is to get outside and look for the moon in the heavens. Sit under her light and absorb a little glamour. Call on the moon goddess Selene for practical help in magical issues. Do a little bit of self exploration and work on developing your intuition - learn to trust your gut.
- Weather Lore-
The higher the cloud the better the weather.
- Also -
The next retrograde cycle of Mercury
will occur August 30 and last through September 22, 2016. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury's domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.
