This Magickal Day is powered by The Fool.
Today's "secret sauce" is thick and rich and sloshing all over the cauldron and its surroundings! Goddess, what a mess! You don't want to know!
We've got a Full Moon, a lunar eclipse, the aforementioned retrograding quartet of Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, ethnic violence suddenly erupting in China and people giddily grasping tickets to the King of Pop's memorial as if they're going to see the man do one last moonwalk. We also have--my secret sauce tells me--a Fool who's hellbent on doing whatever s/he pleases with an Id and impulses on auto-pilot.
Seriously, folks, this is a day for all of us to inspect our brakes and recognize when to apply them. The potential for things to blow up bigger than they need to be--including events, work projects, arguments, egos--is quite high. And it's all underscored by a nasty double dose of illusion, confusion, aggression, anger and ignorance.
Sound bad? Personally, I've never read a Fool card this twisted. I usually love the Fool. But, this time, the Fool has leapt into a roiling environment that brings out a shadow--eclipse?--side that these archetypal symbols contain within their extensive range of meanings. All is not sweetness and light.
So, take your time today. Be slow to leap on things, slow to react in speech or action. Breathe. Cool it. Try to keep a clear head.
Give anyone under the influence of the Fool Moon a wide berth. And light a little candle of safety and sanity in your own corner.
