To my readers: It’s a short blog today, due to the fact that I have dislocated my shoulder.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!

Doris Day (1922 – 2019)

Can’t let this week pass without paying tribute to Doris Day, who passed on Monday.  My mother used to take me to the cinema in the 1950s to see her films.  Her films are legendary: “Calamity Jane”, “Love Me or Leave Me”, “The Man who Knew Too Much”, among others.  Her songs sung in a golden voice were legendary: “Secret Love”, “Que Sera Sera” and “Sentimental Journey”, among others.  Her leading men were legendary: Rock Hudson, James Cagney and Jimmy Stewart, among others.

Her image was the fresh faced (Sun in Aries) girl next door: her astrological persona shown by the Moon in Gemini in 10th House conjunct the Midheaven.

Her problematic marriages (she had four) are depicted in her chart as Sun conjunct exactly Chiron and the South Node of past life karma in Aries in 7th House of Marriage.  Third husband Martin Melcher left her with enormous debts and obligations on his death.

She died at the age of 93 of pneumonia, and had dedicated her life to animal welfare after she retired from film making.


The aspects have decided to be short and sweet today, which makes it easy for me in my sling (which hubby and I are wrestling to get right).  Just two days hold four aspects, and Tuesday  has three of them.

On the morning of Tuesday (21st) the Sun enters Gemini. From earthy preoccupations and concerns, such as the state of the garden, communication becomes a higher priority.  Lightness of being may give you a spring in your step.

Mid-morning on the same day sees Mercury enter Gemini, reinforcing this theme, and aligning your mental energy with your general way of being.  Thus you may feel a certain consistency in your thoughts and actions, and communications with others.  It’s a helpful mindset for students facing exams.

At lunchtime, the Sun conjoins with Mercury at 0 degrees Gemini, which crystallizes and focuses thought, communication, and a lighter look at life.  You may write or speak some memorable lines.

On Wednesday (22nd) Mars sextiles Uranus, which promises to be a dynamic day for action, mechanics and engineering, and the power of surprise.  A good day to get projects going.  If you have been feeling jaded lately, this aspect could act as a pick-you-up tonic.

I’m off to readjust the sling, if possible…

The week in bullet points:

  • Tuesday – Sparkling mental outlook
  • Wednesday – dynamic electrical energy
