Astrologically speaking all I can say is, Wow! Yesterday a 10-ton meteor crashed into Russia, injuring close to 1,200 people and damaging hundreds of homes and businesses and then today, an asteroid the size of a football field came within 17,000 miles of our planet, the first time in recorded history that an object of this size came so close. To put things in comparison, the second biggest object to almost crash into our planet was a 1957 Chrysler New Yorker launched by North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, just last month. The precocious little dictator insisted his aerospace engineers tie it to a missile that was being tested so he could “see what happens.”
Getting back to the meteor for a second, you have to admire those “take charge” qualities of Vladimir Putin. Not less than 90 seconds after the meteor hit, he appeared on national television to let everyone know that everything was completely under control and that the police had already arrested, tried and convicted the Russian oil oligarch responsible.
So when you take what’s happening with all these flying objects and factor in the doings of Mars, Pluto and Saturn, this weekend promises to be a horoscopic doozy. Oh, it’s also Presidents Day weekend but don’t give it a second thought. What a confounding, imprecise, scatterbrained holiday. Whoever you want to be off so you can do something fun, isn’t, and those you wish were working so they wouldn’t ask you to do something boring, are. They should either make sure every man, woman and child in America has off or change the name to “National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day”.
This weekend provides the ideal opportunity to hone in on a goal, to set your sights on accomplishing something big, important or meaningful. Like installing new kitchen cabinets, taking an oil painting class, begin training for a marathon or watching all of Season One of “The Walking Dead” in one sitting. Your creativity and energy levels soar high this weekend and people will be drawn to you like a moth to a flame, an instinctual urge that generally ends badly for the moth, so let’s cap the metaphor right at the point where the moth is still of sound mind and wing and has no reason not to believe the best is yet to come.
Finally, Valentines Day may be behind us but love, heartbreak and guilt don’t brake for holidays so be sure to keep your antenna up if shopping for romance and if a potential suitor hands you a coupon, examine it closely and make sure the expiration date hasn’t passed. This is also important if you purchase milk or other dairy products. Not for love, but for nutritional and health reasons.
Have a great weekend!
