Today I Start my Life Anew...
The big thing that is goin' on right now in the current chart is the fact that Mercury has moved ahead of the Sun... Astrologers (including me on occasion) will go "on and on" about Mercury when it goes retrograde... But most will not mention (or perhaps even realize) that most of the troubles we encounter when Merc is retro are caused in the time frame when it begins to race ahead of the Sun... Work with me on this...
Mercury was considered to be "The Messenger of the Gods" in mythology... Under normal conditions, everything worked really smoothly... When given a message, he would run to the target to deliver it... But... (pointing to my butt)... hehe... THere were those few occasions where Mercury would choose to "edit, change or alter" the original message... Sorta kinda like an older brother or sister may do when the parents were out... Sayin' something like "Mom said you gotta do this" or "Dad said you have to do that"... hehe...
Astrologically, under these current conditions we have to slow ourselves down and make damn sure we are operating on verifiable facts... That means taking the time to do the research before we make purchases... Refusing to "make assumptions" or decisions based merely upon what "someone else" had to say... Under normal conditions, this all seems like "common sense" but when Mercury races ahead of the Sun, all bets are off... hehe...
If you are aware of a problem or issue that needs to be repaired or replaced, this is the time to do that because those are usually the things that are going to fail when Mercury does go retrograde... Which means we will have to "go backwards" to fix the things we could have done right now... As you guys know, I am a "car guy"... I enjoy workin' on my cars and makin' sure they are running and operating right... But I've been so busy lately doing other things that I chose to take one of the cars to a shop to have them totally go through the brake system in the way I normally would do... I know the significance of our current astro-chart and know this is not the time to put off or delay taking needed action... Taking care of an issue now may have prevented a costly accident or tragedy if it was left ignored.
This is surely a time when astrology can really bring us outstanding benefits..!!!
That's it for now... I'll talk to you guys tomorrow...
Keep the Faith... Better Days and Higher Love are comin' soon...

Weekly Horoscope for Cancer
Your Daily Tao
Yield and remain whole
Bend and remain straight
Be low and become filled
Be worn out and become renewed
Have little and receive
Have much and be confused
Therefore the sages hold to the one as an example for the world
Without flaunting themselves – and so are seen clearly
Without presuming themselves – and so are distinguished
Without praising themselves – and so have merit
Without boasting about themselves – and so are lasting
Because they do not contend, the world cannot contend with them
What the ancients called "the one who yields and remains whole"
Were they speaking empty words?
Sincerity becoming whole, and returning to oneself
