I’ve been a little MIA (missing in action) recently. I guess MIG (missing in garden) would be a more accurate description. I’ve reconnected with the dirt and it feels fabulous. It’s a great improvement outside, too. But the Moon is in Aquarius today and Mercury is Retrograde, so what better time to redownload some computer programs I’ve been avoiding. Well, we’ll have to see if it’s a good time, but so far everything has been going well.
I have a new computer, a Mac Mini (what a miracle machine). I made the switch from a pc after much hemming and hawing and being dragged by the hair by my husband. I’ve been more than a bit bewildered. But as of today, I’m running Parallels, a program which allows me to run the Mac and Microsoft Windows simultaneously. Woo-hoo! It’s the best of both worlds. Downloading Parallels has made all the difference in the world to this old hand at a pc. I’m SOLD!! Love that Moon in Aquarius!
By the way, I’d like to give a great big thanks to Tanya over at Matrix Software for helping me with my duh-ness today while redownloading some software. Tanya told me she’s been there for 13 years and actually helped me download some programs in the past. I had her name written down on my old paperwork (always good to refer to) and was so happy when she answered the phone. She was extremely helpful, and I am very grateful, Tanya. Thanks, and thanks again!
To mark this milestone day and to honor Tanya for being so helpful and gracious, I’m offering a free “Just for Women” report to the first person who asks for it in the comments section. Guys are eligible, too, of course ~ get in touch with your feminine side. It may not be on the side you think it is.
BTW, did you know that Michael Erlewine offers a wide array of free ebooks over at Matrix? For you lunar lovers, there’s Mother Moon: Astrology of the Lights. There are 25 free ebooks, not all astrological. Nature in the Backyard has some absolutely stunning photos of the little critters we share our gardens with.
Your Personal Moon Day
May 7th is my Moon Day ~ it marks the day that the transiting Sun conjoins my Moon each year, and is based on the date that the Moon occupied 16°57 Taurus in my birth year. You can figure yours out by looking in the ephemeris. What day is the Sun at the same degree as your birth moon? That’s your Moon Day. I use it as a day just to relish in the fact that I’m a woman. I think of it as my most feminine day of the year. I haven’t shared this little personal ritual with many people, but I feel that now’s the time to share it with you. It’s also a 4th Quarter Moon right now, same as my birth moon. Oh, happy Moon! Remember ~ we’re not looking at the location of the current Moon, but of the transiting Sun on your birth Moon. I choose to think of this time as my Personal New Moon. It marks a good starting point for my year.
I’m also offering a “Just for Women” report for anyone who has their Moon or Sun at 16-17° Taurus. If it’s the Sun, Happy Birthday to you! If it’s your Moon, Happy Moon Day!
