Sun/Jupiter Trine

“A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.” To borrow from The Simpsons, Jupiter embiggens stuff. It makes things larger. Jupiter brings expansion and growth with it, along with an optimistic outlook. If you’re having a party or a fundraiser or – any event at all, really! – then you probably want Jupiter there.

Mars + Gemini = Headache…?

Mars/Saturn opposition, and I’ve had a headache all damn day… I can’t say that the Saturn (currently in Sagittarius) half of the opposition seems to be acting up noticeably for me, but yeah, this headache could be a Mars/Gemini kind of thing.
