A Swiss clairvoyant made the news last week when she helped locate a Swiss Army officer’s lost USB storage device.
It was a USB flash drive type thing being used to store transmission codes. He lost it while on exercises at military barracks in Columbier.
According to The Local, after searches turned up nothing, a colleague suggested that the officer contact a clairvoyant for help. Apparently he did, and she told him he’d lost the device while he was urinating.
And that’s just where they found it, in a bush by where the officer had relieved himself. A psychic hit!
The story sounds made up. A peeing soldier, lost secret codes and an unnamed seer… unlikely. But who knows, it could be true. And if it’s not, I like it anyway.
This is a day for looking forward. You’ve got some time and you’re in a good position to look around and see what you want to do next. The world is literally in your hands and it’s up to you to decide the next move.
What is it that makes you feel most in control of your domain? What is it that makes you feel you’re really doing what you’re supposed to be doing?
Don’t rush this – it takes some serious consideration. Use this time to start getting a grip on your destiny. You’re in charge of this one. Don’t be afraid to take control. Your option is to let someone else.
As described in Science Daily, the research concludes ‘that humans are predisposed to believe in gods and an afterlife, and that both theology and atheism are reasoned responses to what is a basic impulse of the human mind.”
Creation and the celebration of the senses are highlighted today. Art, food, music – anything that inspires our physical and emotional selves will inspire you and be well worth the time.
Nurture yourself and others. It’ll probably be hard not to. Nurturance isn’t just a luxury. You need to maintain and even increase your strength in order to create what you’ve been working on. Eat delicious, healthy foods, surround yourself with beauty, take warm, aromatic baths . . . it’s all part of the Empress’ path to creation.
If you’ve been dealing with issues surrounding motherhood, women, or femininity in general, this would be a great day to take a closer look. There’s wonderful energy now to help you resolve issues you might have thought irresolvable.
The Moon moves into Cancer today, and stays there until Sunday.
Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, you might describe it as the High Priestess dressed in the clothing of the Charioteer. She’s left the safety of her pillars and veil, and has hit the road.
The Moon in Cancer, or the High Priestess dressed as the Charioteer, can be a powerful time of comfortable change and emotional resilience.
Knowledge gathered in silence has coalesced and it’s time to share without fear of being hurt.
Emotional loyalty, intuitive direction and strength of character can give you the resolve to go forward. Even into the unknown.
Try not to coddle yourself. You can only win if you have the courage to play to the end.
It’s a wonderful day to say thank you – to your family, friends, and even your enemies.
Nostalgia and happy memories might fill your head and it’s worth remembering all the love there is around you. Take pleasure in acknowledging it and grateful to extend it further.
Giving and receiving are two sides of the same joy. Take pleasure in both and don’t be shy to tell people how much they mean to you. You’ll probably be surprised by how much they love you back.
With close relationships, this is an especially important time to remember the history and strength of your time together. It’s these ties that have helped you through your most serious moments – both good and bad.
Don’t take them lightly, close friends really are special, and not as common as you might think.
Mercury moves into Virgo today, and stays there until August 8.
Through the eyes of the Tarot, this transit is like the Magician is wearing the Hermit’s clothes. He’s left his garden and is trekking through the snow.
The Magician has inspirational power. He’s focused, clear, intent on his goal. And he gets others excited about it with him.
He’s a master communicator, spinning words like silk, able to convince anyone of pretty much anything.
The Magician is quick, fresh, and eager to discover where his next idea leads. If it gets dull he moves on. There are infinite possibilities, no need to get stuck in anything that doesn’t inspire.
The Hermit, on the other hand, is an old man, wise and slow. He’s not at all concerned with being quick, fresh or starting new. He’s much more interested in digging in and seeing what he’s already got.
His wisdom comes from experience, earned day by day through a long life. Nothing much surprises him. He’s seen it all, both within himself, and in the world outside.
The Hermit’s a solitary walker, though not at all unfriendly. If you’re interested in where he’s going, he’s happy to have you along.
But he won’t push, and isn’t particularly interested in convincing you of anything, except maybe to look within yourself to find what you need.
The Magician has to really slow down when he’s dressed as the Hermit, and it’s not always easy for him. But he likes the meditative atmosphere of the mountain, and is confident he’ll leave it knowing something more about himself.
Mercury in Virgo, or the Magician wearing the Hermit’s clothes, is a time of intense internal clarity. You know what you know, and can see it with fresh eyes.
It’s a good time to clear out stale old perspectives. Shine light on your inner wisdom and don’t be afraid to let others know what you’ve found.
There’s a tension now between the old and the new. Use it to dig through past ideas and experiences. Not for nostalgia’s sake, but in order to figure out what’s worthy enough to revitalize, and what might as well be discarded.
And try not to be frustrated if you have to move slower than your thoughts want to go, especially when Mercury goes retrograde on August 2. Sometimes we just have to slow down a little to really figure things out.
