It’s Valentine’s Day. Wishing you a day when your heart’s desires come true! I’d like to share this Valentine’s Day card with you. It is from artist LIzz Lunney who my husband follows. She has been doing a series of Zodiac cards and this Valentines one is her most recent.
Today in astrology, Mars planet of passion and drive, is moving from his own sign of go getting Aries into the steadier, sensual earth sign of Taurus. Time to slow down and smell the roses – or maybe hyacinths this time of year!
Wednesday 13th February
Good morning, today Mars, planet of assertion and action and Uranus, planet of rebellion and surprises are both at the 29th degree of Aries. This is the last degree and astrologers call this the anaretic degree. When planets are at this degree, there is a sense of urgency and tension. as they are about to move to the next sign. Mars is going into Taurus tomorrow and Uranus moves into Taurus on 6th March. Added to this, Mars and Uranus are an impulsive and unpredictable combination. So expect the unexpected today and if possible, allow yourself a bit more time than usual to respond to what is happening and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Good luck. I’m off to do a talk ‘Zip Round the Zodiac’.

Wasn’t it beautiful this morning? Frosty mornings always remind me of one of my favourite poems;The Horses by Ted Hughes.
I was introduced to it at school when I was about fifteen and it has always stayed with me.
Ted Hughes, The Horses
I climbed through woods in the hour-before-dawn dark.
Evil air, a frost-making stillness,
Not a leaf, not a bird –
A world cast in frost. I came out above the wood
Where my breath left tortuous statues in the iron light.
But the valleys were draining the darkness
Till the moorline – blackening dregs of the brightening grey –
Halved the sky ahead. And I saw the horses:
Huge in the dense grey – ten together –
Megalith-still. They breathed, making no move,
with draped manes and tilted hind-hooves,
Making no sound.
I passed: not one snorted or jerked its head.
Grey silent fragments
Of a grey silent world.
I listened in emptiness on the moor-ridge.
The curlew’s tear turned its edge on the silence.
Slowly detail leafed from the darkness. Then the sun
Orange, red, red erupted
Silently, and splitting to its core tore and flung cloud,
Shook the gulf open, showed blue,
And the big planets hanging –
Stumbling in the fever of a dream, down towards
The dark woods, from the kindling tops,
And came to the horses.
There, still they stood,
But now steaming and glistening under the flow of light,
Their draped stone manes, their tilted hind-hooves
Stirring under a thaw while all around them
The frost showed its fires. But still they made no sound.
Not one snorted or stamped,
Their hung heads patient as the horizons,
High over valleys in the red levelling rays –
In din of crowded streets, going among the years, the faces,
May I still meet my memory in so lonely a place
Between the streams and the red clouds, hearing the curlews,
Hearing the horizons endure.

Sunday 10th February
Wow, that was a windy, lively day yesterday. My hubby and I threw ourselves into a bracing ( very cold) walk on Weybourne beach. I was really appreciative to get back to our cosy car, warm flask and sandwiches, we are true Brits you know! Or has he says, old farts! 😉
Today, Mercury planet of communication is moving into dreamy imaginative Pisces. Astrologically, Mercury is fast and light and likes to analyse so it is not happy in Pisces which is intuitive and instinctual. So confusions and misunderstandings may occur. However, the upside is that this is a good time to use your imagination and intuition and go with the flow.
