What joy! With the frigid temps here in Portland, Ore. keeping people shut in at home and all of Sunday's Oscar excitement, it practically feels like another holiday weekend around here.
We here at DH headquarters are rooting for Colin Firth to win Best Actor, but we can’t decide if that’s because he did such an amazing job in “The King’s Speech,” if it’s because our Master Astrologer Jeff Jawer predicts Firth will win, or if it’s because he’s the sexiest Virgo we’ve ever seen. Ok, maybe all three.
Let’s take a look at what else is happening in the world and in the stars from Friday, Feb. 25 to Sunday, Feb. 27.
On Friday, our moods will lighten up a bit from recent days thanks to the optimistic Sagittarius Moon, but we may also need to be careful of what we say. It’s an open-mouth-insert-foot kind of day, but at least it’s a fashionable foot because we’re wearing these babies as we glitz and glam and do up our Oscar Party Feng Shui.
Ok, we just lied, we can't afford blue satin Manolo Blahnik pumps, but we would be wearing those if we could, so our intentions are good.
See, the reason we lied is that Friday’s Sun-Mercury conjunction in Pisces and Sun-Mercury sextile to Pluto has us accidentally spouting off things that aren’t exactly true, but we’re doing it in an utterly convincing manner. But you know what happens when you’re caught talking smack, right? Differences of opinions could arise. This won’t cause major problems, but do try to check your facts before you speak out on Friday.
On Saturday, you’ll feel a bit reckless until the Moon moves into serious Capricorn at 11:32 a.m. (PST). Do something crazy like eating two bowls of Fruity Sugar Pebbles for breakfast or buying a pair of $775 shoes, then buckle down and get some chores done in the afternoon. Taxes, anyone? Or maybe get a jump start on spring cleaning.
Sunday is a far better day to take it easy, watch the Oscars and catch up on reading or homework. The Moon is making a square to expansive Jupiter that promotes optimism and positive thinking -- in fact, sometimes so much positive thinking that you could become overconfident and rub others the wrong the way. You know, like the way we’re so overconfident about Colin Firth winning the Best Actor Oscar that all of Javier Bardem’s fans think we’re annoying. We’ll try to tone it down a notch on Sunday if you will, too.
By the way, who do you think will win Best Actor at the 2011 Oscars?
