- Anna Gunn on Skyler White.

- Who watches Talking Bad?

- It struck me today that since I've moved, I haven't been checking the T sites (Twitter and Tumblr). I don't miss them. I realize that LJ and DW are no longer the portals of communication they used to be, and if most of your information's dispersed over Twitter or Tumblr, I apologize for not acknowledging you there. I could be perfectly happy without either. For professional purposes I need to have a Twitter account. I'd already deleted my original Tumblr ages ago, and might send my current one down the drain to a happy resting place too. I have one tracked tag there, and I don't need an active Tumblr for that.

- Emeryville on a Sunday sucks. I venture to guess Emeryville most days sucks, but today was especially bad. Maybe everyone in NorCal decided it was IKEA day, but that place was insane.

- Got some real-life stuff going on, maybe I'll talk about it one of these days. That aside, I had a minor epiphany today as I walked down the stairs: I like our house. It's a pretty big deal, because that means it's starting to feel like home.

- Driving somewhere new tomorrow. Should be a fun adventure.

- Last week I had my first visitors! Friends from way the hell across the country (Baltimore area, to be exact) stopped in for the afternoon and evening. They were vacationing up in Sonoma and drove down to hang out while my husband was away on a business trip. It was absolutely lovely. I made dinner (impromptu dinner party for six, anyone?).

Hope everyone's doing well!

It's a day, isn't it? So many people are unhappy. I want to hug my whole friends list, each and every one of you.

Today, the moon is in Aries. Aries, the ram, ruled by Mars, the god of war. Think bellicose. Think head-butting. Think extremely impulsive. Think rash and reckless and impatient. Think infantile, because Aries as the first sign is the infant of the zodiac. People are going around being very egocentric! It's by the force and example of the moon. Warriors, warrior maidens. Headaches, head injuries, these things abound under an Aries moon because Aries rules the head.

Emotionally we are revved up and stark naked under an Aries moon. We have no patience with others or with ourselves. We want to get things done for the sake of getting them done. We will deal with the consequences of our actions another time but today, we act before we think. And that's okay because we know we're right. We are headstrong. We butt heads over concepts, ideas, actions, inactions. But we can also accomplish great and miraculous things with all that Mars energy! We just have to focus it.

Moon in Aries will not make us diplomats. It will lead us into battles. It also makes us courageous and decisive. It makes us want to take the bull by the horns and rattle sabers. It favors being athletic and it favors brainstorming, but it will sap our patience and thoughtfulness. It's explosive. Literally. Look at what's going on in Oslo today.

Overnight, the moon will move into the sign of Taurus and that will bring with it a whole new set of challenges and delights. The forceful energy of the past few days will mellow and it will be a good time to nest and nestle. Patience will return, and the ability to proceed with diligence. Think of Taurus the bull moving steadily forward on feet that look anything but light. It's ruled by Venus and that brings with it a greater degree of harmony and a sense of beauty. It's a good time to rest and regenerate, to get cozy.

The moon transits each sign for about two, two and a half days. On the 25th, it moves into Gemini and that's a whole new ball of wax, and another, and another. But more as the days progress, if you're interested.
