Yasmin Boland's Moon Meditations
- SKY WATCH September 5 2004
from The Sunday Telegraph's body+soul
The Quarter Moon this week could bring some tension. It takes place
in the wee small hours of Tuesday in the sign of Gemini, which is all
about talking, thinking and communicating. It also takes place in the
same week as we see the powerful and passionate planet Pluto being
activated twice, both times in a rather aggressive manner by the Sun
When Pluto is being needled like this, especially under a Quarter
Moon <which is usually an unsettled time> gripes and moans are likely
to come to the surface. There is a sense of wanting to rid ourselves
of rubbish. There is also a sense that we are not going to put up
with any more dross. "Bin it!" becomes a whole lot easier to say.
Egos are fraying and tempers are flaring <or at least are a whole lot
more likely to>. Added to this, Venus moves out of Cancer and into
Leo, where she wants to be adored more than ever.
This could be a week of high passion, for sure. However, you will be
lucky if the week's energies translate as nothing but sexiness for
you. Tread carefully and think before you act now. Are you treating
others as you would like to be treated yourself? And are you being
treated as you know you should be? If not, this is the week to gauge
how strongly you want to do something about it.
It's important to remember that until next month, we are still
extricating ourselves from the triangles, messes and inappropriate
situations which came with the Venus/Pluto action of May to July,
kick started by the Mars/Pluto problem in late April. Ring any bells?
Pluto is still ploughing his way through the skies, challenging us to
make up our minds, to pay our money and to take our pick. Bear in
mind that this might not be the best week of all the make massive
decisions . Far better to try to use the hot energies in something
either passionate or by getting physical in a sporty way, if you can.
In more Moon news, la Luna is in Gemini on Monday, which at least
opens up the communication lines, tense though they may be, as you
wait to see if what you want is what you're going to get. She answers
that question then moves into homelier Cancer on Wednesday morning
and into showier Leo on Friday night, which suggests there's going to
be more people than usual dancing on tables as the weekend begins...
THINKING ABOUT LIFE COACHING?
My very good friend Sandra Quiggin has been working in snowy places
like Colorado and New Zealand for the past few years, teaching
herself kayaking and teaching disabled kids how to ski.
Now she's taking all she learned about mental toughness, and is using
it in her new Life Coaching Company

Monday January 29 - Moon in Gemini
Moon Meditation: "I am clear in my ideas..."
The idea today is to take a long hard look at something which is
Are you driving yourself into a depression? Are you terrorizing
yourself with your thoughts? Have you allowed someone else to
criticise you so often and so much that you're starting to believe
the nasty things they say? Or have you perhaps been mean to someone?
My new favourite quote of last week was from author J.M. Barrie (who
created Peter Pan) who said: 'Everyone you meet is fighting some
kind of battle. Always be a little kinder than necessary...'
This is extra true for today. It's a day to think seriously. Also
very good for signing contracts and agreements.
