Mercury is direct and Venus went into cancer.
They say that Mercury retrograde is all about miscommunication & confusion in the arena of transportation, contracts, and general interaction with others in the world around us. Likewise it is said that Venus in cancer is about gut feelings; how we care for ourselves and the ones around us, healing wounds and telling people what you feel.
I've been on a big learning curve lately. Trying to tame the beast that is my new spinning wheel. She earned the name 'Tempest' in the wee hours as I struggled through all her unyielding ways. Not an easy wheel, but I finally figured out how to weather the storm and create some beautiful yarn.
I'm learning my worth to those around me also. Funny how we see ourselves in contrast to how we are seen by others. My gut tells me all I need to know. It has never lied to me. I have a bad habit of second guessing myself. This is how I end up with overspun yarn, or a doll face that looks 'off'. The confusion of the past has given me a clear vision of what I want.
Simple ways are underrated. The more I spin & dye, the more I see the beauty in old ways and simple things.
