And so another Mother’s Day passed and I was spoiled by my child (thanks to her dad’s credit card) and by my friends, Sidey and Nzwa. Our meal was satisfying, if marred by my unspectacular dessert tart and by my almost slicing my finger off with my new chef’s knife.
The only real downer of the day was that my dort was in a sullen mood. I have read that the best way to deal with this sort of adolescent behaviour is to ignore it … and to drink good wine.
My week is blessed with abundant work; I have a new book to edit and another catering stint tomorrow (I wonder if the crew like beetroot?) and my horoscope looks so delightful that I am choosing to believe it will all come true …
Frivolity and fun are the name of the game these next few days! Don’t even think about worrying about deeper issues — the stars have aligned to give you a break from all things serious.
On May 9, Mercury will give Venus a big hug, and your world will erupt in harmony. Your goal will be to keep the peace, and you’ll succeed at smoothing anything over with a well-worded compliment. Then, on May 11, Jupiter joins in the group hug, bringing luck and enthusiasm your way!
Mercury and Jupiter will liven up your conversations, add confidence to your opinions, and give you the optimism to believe you can do anything. You may promise to do just about anything too, which is unrealistic, but because your promise was made with good intentions, no one will mind.
Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter just want to get out there and socialize with as many people as possible. This tends to be a more superficial transit, so while nothing earth-shattering is likely to occur, you should have a lot of fun.
Helping to keep you grounded, Mars will move from Aries into Taurus, also on May 11. Mars in Taurus will help you gain control of your finances and other practical matters. You may be a bit slower in coming to a final decision, but when you make your decision, it will most definitely be final.
Have a happy week, dear friends.
