moonclouds_smallYou will wake up this morning knowing exactly where you want to go in your writing today. Structural issues were cleared up overnight as Moon conjuncted Chiron in Pisces and trined Saturn. As much as you want to push ahead, though, loved ones could disturb your writing this morning. Don’t sweat the disturbances. By late afternoon, Jupiter enters Leo and it’s ‘full steam ahead’!

moonclouds_smallA grand trine with Moon, Mars and Venus adds eloquence to our visionary writing from yesterday. Conflicts with the Sun and Jupiter in Cancer, though, could make us come across too forcefully. We could lose the compassionate details in the push for the bigger picture. Write the grand strokes today, and edit the details another day. Write the emotional speech today.
Edit it tomorrow.
