Friday, Nov 2 stubborn, with a tendency to enlarge our problems to get our point across. Fogy but potentially optimistic morning as the Moon opposes Neptune and trines enthusiastic Jupiter. Good news. Lots of information pours in after mercury turned direct last night, but mush of it is distorted by hyperbole or emotional embroidery. And an urgency to be understood, or to be right. If only we felt as urgent to understand their perspective as well. , Cut everyone some creative leeway; don't feel like everything needs to be said at once.
