ooohhh... melrose place!
Goldie, You light-hearted Geminis are often the quick-footed players who seem to have a good time even in difficult situations. Now, however, you might be too stressed to enjoy yourself fully as your key planet, Mercury, tries to overcome the resistance of Saturn. You could be afraid of losing what goodies you already have and this makes you want to clench your muscles and hold your breath. Unfortunately, this will have the opposite effect of what you desire. Be real, but remember this stress will soon transform into easy expression.
Lord. Doncha hate it when your horror-scope is right on the button?

I'm sick again. I don't think I ever got over the last infection, even though I did everything my doctor asked me. It's frustrating me that I can't be my usual fun, flirty, happy self, either online or in 'real' life, because I'm either sick or stressed. It's a bit of a vicious cycle - one always leading to the other. And it can all be traced back to one thing... where I work.

Even though I've made a lovely new friend there who sweetly listens to me when I'm down and shares an amazing amount in common, the place still craps the hell out of me for various reasons.

Most of them are of the female human variety, and their nasty little habits of lowering their voices when I walk around the corner, or all standing at the girl beside me's cubicle and planning what they're doing this Saturday night. Even though they know I was unceremoniously dumped from the group. It doesn't help that I feel one of them is hampering me from doing my job either.

The New moon in Libra eclipses the Sun at 10:58 pm EDT, releasing change in relationship dynamics. Every month, the New Moon initiates the next emotional cycle by eliminating what needs to be left behind. An eclipse increases the level of intensity by bringing situations to a head. Additionally, our rational mind is given a reality check as Mercury the Messenger comes to square stern Saturn. We run into a problem with authority if we haven't done our homework. Ideas that cannot be justified now must be changed.
Guess today is Judgement Day.

Bring it, Libra New Moon-Eclipse-like-event. I need the strength to deal with all this shit once and for all.

the amazing disappearing woman! for a short time only...
virgo50.jpgGeneral daily overview: After a couple of weeks of powerful interplanetary activity, finally we have a quieter and gentler day. The Moon is in analytical Virgo where she reminds us to be careful about what we accept. And, lest things get too relaxing, the Sun forms a mildly tense aspect with the wild and crazy planet, Uranus. Still, this is the calm before the storm, for Mercury is pushing on its Square to heavy Saturn, which challenges authority. Additionally, the New Moon eclipse on Wednesday will surely turn things upside once again.
That's OK. I'm used to things being turned upside down, so hopefully it should be a nice surprise for me for a change :D.

Meanwhile, I have been keeping things from you. Yes, hard to believe, I know. But you understand right? A girl's weight is a sensitive issue.

Between antidepressants and CY's cancer, I gained about 8 kilos (20 pounds?) this year. Which on my 5'10" (178cm) frame wasn't as noticeable as if it had been on, say, someone who was 5'5". But it's pushed me up a dress size or two nonetheless.

Grrr. I don't like not being able to wear my favourite clothes.

So anyways, I started Atkins just over 2 weeks ago. I fell off the wagon on the first Friday and had a whole weekend of carb-related indulgence equivalent to fantastic sex (raspberry choc chunk muffin anyone? *drool*), but I willingly got back on board and carried on putting cream in my tea *ergh*.

And now, Monday 2.5 weeks after I started, I've lost over 4 of those kilos already (I think that's 10 pounds?). Sure, I've been eating a lot of Caesar Salad and scrambled eggs, but who doesn't love a brekkie of the eggy variety? And it helps that an Aussie company has finally produced some Atkins-friendly chocolate. I've been scarfing the stuff down and watching the kilos melt away.

Here's to those other 4 kilos (and maybe a third lot of 4) going off to possibly be tortured and beaten mercilessly fat-land, never to return *cheers*.

leo.jpgGeneral daily overview: The Moon in fiery Leo demonstrates her feelings with pride. This isn't always about being the boastful show-off. It can also represent the person with quiet confidence who is working backstage. Ultimately, the Leo Moon just needs to speak the truth out loud, and there can be a directness and relentlessness to how we now express our feelings. Additionally, mental Mercury forms a minor tense aspect with erratic Uranus, turning up the volume on our nervous system. Rest and relaxation may seem to be just around the next corner.
Well, there's a perfect horoscope for a Friday.

With the continuing transit of about a hundred planets in Libra, I'm thinking this weekend will be just perfect for staying in with your playmate, or picking up a new one for some intimacy of the slightly casual kind.

Although it doesn't mention anything about finding mobile phones. Meh.

taking stock (no pun intended)
aries.jpgGeneral daily overview: Our impulses pull us to the edge of the emotional cliff with the Moon now in Aries. It is, however, being offset by the planetary traffic jam in Libra, the sign opposite to Aries. Today, Mercury the Communicator enters Libra to join expansive Jupiter, aggressive Mars and the Sun. Our thoughts seek harmony and balance in the rational realms. The philosophical perspective allows us to move away from self-interest and toward a more global view. An optimistic outlook can help us make positive steps in our lives.
That's one hell of a Libran line-up. Expect to be a little more judgemental than usual, as well as a little more forgiving. Maybe an old relationship will finally be patched up, or an old hurt forgiven. Libra is all about checks and balances.

And believe me. Watch out for the fiery Aries full moon tomorrow/Thursday night (Harvest Moon in the Northern Hemisphere). Things could get very heated very quickly. On the flip side, Aries moons are a great time to part-ay. Baby.

Me, I'm loving Mars in Libra. I'm finally letting out a shite-load of pent-up frustration (both here, other places, and in meatspace) and I feel so much better for it...

darlin', darlin', I don't know why
libra. baby. General daily overview: The Moon is in compassionate Pisces today. We become more aware of other people's feelings but can also get confused about our own boundaries. The big cosmic news, however, is that Mars, the fiery God of War has left analytical Virgo to enter harmonious Libra. Mars moving through Libra until November 10 finds a nicer way to get what he desires. Since Libra seeks balance, Mars here likes to even the score. Although strategies become emphasized, we shouldn't discount the physical drive associated with this transit.
Ahhh... lovely Libra! How I have missed thee!

Get ready for not just a horny 6 weeks (the so-called "physical drive" of passionate Mars in partnership-oriented Libra... oo er), but an incredibly lucky 12 months in lovin'. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good fortune, is also in this sign of beauty, love and togetherness for a year. If you're lookin' for that special someone, now is sooo the right time.

And if you're just looking for a shag, the next 6 weeks should see you all buff in the boudoir more than once. Although don't go getting too rough and tumble, like these 2 did... (via ms empress and gennie)

Sing it with me... "Darlin' I... oh I... I can't get enough of your love baby..."

b-grade-pulp-movie scream
General daily overview: The Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 10:29 am EDT(US), symbolizing our need to extend ourselves beyond current limitations. There are weird undercurrents, however, that make things a bit tilted. With intellectual Mercury in an annoying aspect of adjustment to spacey Neptune, it is difficult to bring logical thoughts to conclusion. Even a good idea that seems well-developed can end up going nowhere. Try to remain open to unexpected twists of fate. The most important things can happen for no apparent reason.
Erm OK. It's not like there haven't been any 'twists of fate' come my way in the last 6 months. Heh. So I guess I'll just roll with the punches.

Other than Blogrolling's issues slightly (and somewhat surprisingly) hampering my regular surfing (who knew I depended so on my 'recently updated' list?! 'Goldmember' indeed.) it's rather quiet round here.

Chocolate has been consumed as required. Therapy of the retail variety has been undertaken. And downright raunchy $9 Long Island Iced Teas were imbibed at the Banque on more than one occasion (alcoholic-ear-infection-therapy is most effective). In fact, if you're an Adelaide party person partial to a quality drink that's kind to your hip pocket, you'd be hard pressed to find a better cocktail deal anywhere in the city. Get yer ass to the Banque, stat. I adore the place. It's where everybody kows my name.

Anything fateful happening out there with you lot? C'mon. Tell aunty goldie.
