By SAM ROBERTS | Beatrice Trum Hunter, a Brooklyn-born public school teacher who transplanted herself in midlife to a sylvan sanctuary, where she compiled what was heralded as the nation’s first healthful natural foods cookbook, died on Wednesday in Hillsborough, N.H. Having practiced what she preached, Mrs. Hunter lived to be 98.
If you could combine excitement with stability — and expect good results — where would you apply that in your life? A trine between retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries suggests that something to do with your spiritual understanding of yourself might be one area to consider. What unanticipated ‘first’ is ripe to occur in a primary structure of your life?
So much less is tangible now. Just when you got accustomed to the rather astonishing challenge to your identity that’s dominated the past 18 months, your entire orientation changed from one that was fundamentally mental to one that is at its essence emotional. So little seems certain in the emotional realm; it’s a different element, where small movements carry with much greater momentum.
News out of the Trump administration has moved this week at the speed of Uranus multiplied by Eris in Aries — the light-speed of the internet. The current cascade of events, peaking yesterday with the naming of a special prosecutor to investigate the various Russia affairs, will likely lead to the end of Trump’s presidency.
It has been another extraordinary 24 hours in the nation’s capital. In the biggest news of the day, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as a special counsel to oversee a probe into Russian government efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election.
If you have not already started, today is a prime day to get traction on resolving some persistent difficulty in your life. Physical ailments and spiritual concerns — and combinations of the two — are the primary areas to focus on. It’s easy to forget in our overly digitized world just how intimately connected our bodies are with our emotional and energetic states.
Do you feel ready for something new? Although that feeling could come from being exhausted with something, Amanda Painter notes that the urge for something new can also emerge from a palpable sense of growing creative energy that needs an outlet. With Venus opposing Jupiter tomorrow and the Sun entering Gemini on Saturday, consider moving forward to meet that new thing.
Donald Trump is facing yet another major scandal. The New York Times is reporting Trump personally asked FBI Director James Comey to end the agency’s investigation into Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. The Times reports Trump made the extraordinary request to James Comey during an Oval Office meeting on February 14.
What feeds and nourishes your mind? What drains your emotional reservoirs or feels like a psychic transgression? If you find these two ideas at odds today in a single situation (or within you), where is the point of movement, resolution or synthesis? Today the asteroid Ceres in Gemini squares the centaur planet Nessus in Pisces, describing this dynamic.
These past few months may have resonated with more potential than success; with more crisis than creative opportunity. But think of all that as preparation; consider how much more aware you are now than you were just a few months ago. Now comes the moment of truth: focusing your priorities and making sure that you put your potential to the best possible use.
