The bad part about taking a vacation and not glibbing for a while is I have a stupid completionist drive that means that I have to go back to where I left off and read all the articles and comments before getting to the current stuff.

The skies don’t have an overall theme this week.  Sun-Mercury-Saturn portends endings, and Sun-Earth-Moon which we’ve already discussed before (in case you don’t remember — balance, harmony, righteousness, general empowerment).  Mercury conjoined with Venus in Scorpio warns of a syphilis outbreak, hopefully this won’t affect anyone here.  There is a dual reading to Mars in Libra:  a stalemate, or a balance broken by hostilities.  Usually you can tell by the way Mars relates to the other planets, but this time it’s just doing its own thing.

Libra:  10 of Coins – Gain, riches; family matters, archives, extraction, the abode of a family
