Monthly overview of astrological influences
This month the astrological influences are all over the place. It’s a regular free-for-all up there. Each sign seems to have its own agenda with only a few exceptions. Take Libra for instance, poor sign is like the designated driver at the celestial disco. His best bud Scorpio has hooked up with some hottie from the second house of Jupiter. And they’re out behind the bar where old Scorpio is definitely in ascension, and shows no signs of slipping into retrograde anytime soon. Libra didn’t even want to come out tonight, but Scorpio insisted. And now here he is at the bar sipping ginger ale with no hope of getting out of there any time before two. And Scorpio, his idiot friend knows full well he needs to be at work by 7:30 AM tomorrow morning. See what I mean.
