Happy Friday! It’s a little damp outside, but at least it’s not snowing. The Sun moved into Aquarius on Monday, January 20th, and the Moon is now also in Aquarius, resulting in a New Moon and overdose of Aquarius energy for the weekend. Capricorn is a steady rule-follower, while Aquarius is the exact opposite, breaking or changing the rules. With a New Moon, we have a new beginning, and with it being in Aquarius, this is the weekend to be our REAL self. “Let me, be me” energy. Enjoy it.
There are still three planets in Capricorn, keeping us restrained, and two in Pisces, resulting in a let’s go into the future, “let’s see what’s next” energy. This along with Aquarius energy will make for a totally interesting weekend.
We entered the Celtic Tree Month of Rowan on Tuesday, January 21st. The English author, Walter de la Mare, wrote, “So potent is the flower or berry or wood of the rowan or witchwood or quicken or whichen-tree or mountain ash against the wiles of the elf-folk, the dairymaids use it for cream-stirrers and cowherds for a switch.” The Scotts used it along with red thread to find witches and to counteract any evil they may have wrought. Scandinavian myths said Thor (the god of Thunder) ruled this tree and planted them near their buildings to prevent any damage from storms.
Tomorrow is the Lunar New Year. This year we honor the Rat.
More on that tomorrow, because today I will be at Creative Energy, the PURPLE store, located at 780 W. New Haven Ave., aka Hwy. 192, in Melbourne from noon until 5 pm. The PURPLE peeps, Pamela, Vance, Aimee, and Alyssa have been rearranging displays and bringing more romance into the nooks and corners of the shop. There is something for that special someone hidden somewhere in the store. Ask anyone of them to help you find it.
This is the last weekend of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at the Surfside Playhouse, 301 Ramp Road, Cocoa Beach, so make certain you get your tickets for this classic. Also, “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” has opened at MCT (Melbourne Civic Theatre). This Nora and Delia Ephron play is a must-see, especially for women.
Gotta run! Later! Ciao!
