SOME MORE MOON SIGN DEGREES

The two Blogs I wrote last year about meanings of Moon Sign degrees has attracted many viewers.  Each post listed randomly selected degrees of each of the 12 zodiac signs.  Lets list some more and lets see if your degree number shows up.

On your Natal Horoscope Wheel look for the little symbol of a half moon.  Look at the number next to it with the little degree circle symbol.  Thats how many degrees the moon had reached the day and moment you were born. 

ARIES        8 degrees – A tendency to be more indecisive than the rest of the Aries moons.

TAURUS    10 degrees – An ingenious and flexible mind, needing encouragement in youth.

GEMINI    17 degrees – Has plenty of ESP – extra sensory perception. 

CANCER   5 degrees – An overly trusting nature, so often is easily hurt emotionally.  

LEO         7 degrees – Born to greatness and believes it, so works within that knowing.

VIRGO     3 degrees – They try, try and try again until they finally do succeed.

LIBRA     11 degrees – Often found with adopted children where dad is unknown or person has divorced parents and the dad does not participate in raising the child. 

SCORPIO   9 degrees – an orphaned child or has unusual guardians who take the child out of control of the parents at an early age.

SAGITTARIUS  6 degrees  –   An inventive mind and a very resourceful person.

My information has been taken from the book “Moon Signs”  by Sybil Leek,  who tells us that the moon is the most important barometer of our emotions.   She asserts that celestial equal rights for the moon are long overdue!

     

What the Ancient Wisdom Teaches About the Astrological Signs

Blank Galaxy chart

History is full of stories showing the importance given to Astrology and Astronomy was seen as the foundation of Astrology.  All priests and governors in olden days had to have knowledge of the science of the stars and the science of numbers.  Astrology was always used to map out a person’s life.  The history of a race or country can also be determined by the influences of the day it began.  The twelve Zodiac signs represent the twelve lessons of human existence; the twelve qualities to be gradually achieved by every human being, life after life, but not necessarily sign after sign.  We have free will and can choose to work under a particular sign more often than the others or even disregard a specific sign, although this would produce a one-sided character and happens less often. 

The first sign, Aries, whose symbol is the ram, represents the first experience of life, the beginning of the human journey and bestows extreme physical activity, caring and impulsiveness.  They are ruled by Mars, the warrior.  Aries represents the head and Aries folks use their brains intensely, although without much experience of life to back them up.   At this, the beginning of the human journey, our human uses their quick-working brain and is eager and brave.  He or she is ready to lead and wants to help, but is yet a poor judge of character and can be easily deceived.  They make poor subordinates.  They need to guard against over-working their brains and need plenty of sleep. 

The second sign, Taurus, the bull, is very strong and plodding, but if suddenly aroused, they plunge swiftly to their goal and like the bull, they can be slowly aroused to anger.  Ruled by Venus, they learn lessons about loving deeply with their whole heart and with great devotion and also about money, planting and harvesting, working the earth patiently.  They are great agriculturists and nature lovers, singers and poets.  They are courageous and devoted people.  Their major problems come from overly luxurious living with much love for food and drink.  They are patient and determined.

The third sign, Gemini, the twins, ruled by the planet Mercury gives humans the next lesson which is how to use the brain for practical matters and for reasoning.   This gives a dual type of mind that can see both sides, and which also has great interest in every new idea presented.  They love to share their knowledge and make great teachers and writers.  Geminis are changeable and ambitious and their brains race up and down the tree of knowledge.  Given brilliance and quickness, they learn to develop a logical reasoning mind with rapid thought.  These qualities rely on the nervous system more than the brain, so they need to guard against overworking their sensitive nerves. 

The fourth sign, Cancer, the crab, ruled by the Moon comes in with the accumulated experience of the first three signs and the next lesson is to learn how to apply it.  Great patience and tenacity are given along with the talent for parenthood and family life.  This is the nurturing earth mother and even the men enjoy cooking and being in their secure homes.  There is restlessness too, causing an occasional desire to travel away from home.  Cancerians are like crabs, moving forward and then turning back or going sideways on to something else and so live a life of ups and downs.  The Moon makes them deeply sensitive and passionate for life.  They require discipline and order in their world.  Their accumulated experience now makes them ready to be good in the business world as well in the home.

The fifth sign, Leo, the Lion, ruled by the Sun incarnates with a great deal of knowledge of the human side of life and can produce very fine results.  The task for them is to go forth and become a powerful and well-developed human, capable of high achievements.    Often kings of men and people of power are born as Leos.  They are big-hearted, strong mentally and physically, proud, ambitious and popular.  Because they have not yet reached divine intuition, they may misunderstand and think less of those weaker than themselves.  They do, however, attract many followers.  Friends may cause them disillusionment because Leo is not used to adapting to the ways of others.

The sixth sign, Virgo the virgin, is ruled by Mercury just like Gemini.  They come in to learn discrimination.   At this point, humans have risen to great heights through using impulsiveness, forcefulness and a growing talent for self-expression.   Virgo is given a natural fastidiousness and a critical eye.  They are to begin from the angle of a critic rather than a person of action like the Mercury ruled Gemini.  They are adaptable and make excellent subordinates, work well and are usually successful.   They have exquisite taste.  Virgos will organize us.  They are the restaurant keepers, journalists, art critics and health workers. 

Up to this point Man has learned to be a complete human being, but only half the journey is accomplished.  The second half is about learning to become a spiritual person and live in both the world of power and spirit while on earth and have the mind be in touch with the Divine.  Here we learn there is more to life than the physical world.  Things become harder to understand, and the first thing our human must now learn is balance. 

the sun character

The seventh sign, Libra, the scales, is ruled by Venus just as Taurus is.  Librans can actually miss many opportunities in life through too much weighing and balancing through over-thinking things.  Now the human is becoming psychic and intuitive and would do better going with the first impression.  There is a lot of love in Libra, but it has now become more mental than physical.  They are able to love abstract things such as harmony, peace, justice and beauty.  They truly dislike all disharmony in life.  They will avoid an argument and this is because the refining process has begun.  They are definitely not cowardly or weak.  They are the lawyers, judges and specialists, the architects and researchers.  Many Librans hold themselves back, afraid to let themselves go; and so to compensate they may tend to overwork.

The eighth sign, Scorpio, the scorpion or eagle, ruled by Pluto and before its discovery by Mars.  Our next lesson is to transmute the tender passion of love to the higher planes.  Scorpios have magnetic, forceful personalities and others feel fascinated by them and they can draw fanatical devotion.  This sign produces many saints and many villains too; both the best and the worst!   They can be their own worst enemy, or else have the beginnings of wisdom and attainment of high spirituality.    They usually pass through the fire of the temptation of sex in all its forms to learn that it is the sex-force that gets used for higher attainment.  There is versatility and loyalty and they are capable of swaying others.  They are proud and ambitious, with intense and enduring feelings. 

The ninth sign, Sagittarius, the archer is ruled by Jupiter and the goal now is truth and the beginnings of unselfishness.  Sagittarians instinctively believe that truth is beautiful and they wish to spread it around joyfully.   They love life and travel and are full of humor.  They can be domineering and stubborn, but they always attempt to make others happy.  They are very hospitable and since they contain the qualities of all the preceding signs, they are very versatile.  Music and ceremony appeal and they will give great encouragement to music, the arts and the pleasures and luxuries of life.   Their agile minds cause them to jump to results without patient study.  They must always be actively employed and take periods of complete rest to relax their tenseness.  Sagittarians are very popular with a great zest for life.

The tenth sign, Capricorn, the mountain goat is ruled by Saturn.  Humans are now bending their will to attain spiritual accomplishment and Saturn, the great tester and trainer is here to help.  Saturn holds Capricorns down to earth, pressing upon them and sometimes depressing them.  Our humans are now ready to stand on their own two feet and work things out for themselves, rather than following others’ lead.   They are ready for thoughtful, practical work and have appreciation for intellect and the sciences as well as the occult. There is independence and pride, organization and desire for leadership.   There is tact, pity and patience and ability to now see outside of self, using suffering to identify with the feelings of all humanity.  They usually put the work ahead of the chance for fun.  Capricorn may be hard to understand, complex with unusual reactions, and yet with the stern discipline that is part of their lives, they usually live a long time and are quite healthy. 

The eleventh sign, Aquarius, the water bearer, is ruled by Uranus and before its discovery, they were also Saturn ruled.   By now our human is ready to pour out the waters of life, along with all their ideas on others.  By now, they have lost some of their pride and begun to feel that they are a part of the whole.  They are making great steps forward by beginning to give more importance to others than to themselves.    Aquarians like to gather with others in groups to work for the betterment of all.  They are no longer ambitious totally for themselves.  They will work in the background, unless inspired to work for a cause.   Their minds are learning to be non-attached, honest and free.  They have great sympathy for human weakness.  They are still overly-sensitive and can read character well.  This gives intense likes and dislikes.  They have developed some of the finer qualities of the soul, causing them to be delicately balanced.  There can be frail health, yet nobody has more reserve force than these humanitarians. 

The twelfth sign, Pisces, the sign of the fish ruled by Neptune and previously by Jupiter, encompasses the most perfected type of spiritual humans.  The lesson now is the final letting go of the self and complete merging into the lives and feelings of others.  Many wonderful actors are Pisceans, and also great poets, artists and musicians.  Pisces produces the strongest and the weakest types of humans.  The force flowing through them is difficult to handle and unless well-used, they can turn to drink, drugs and other excesses for escape.  Being the sign of fish going in two directions, they can go either way.  They need courage and confidence in themselves to be inspired to great heights of self-denial and attainment.  Having attained the qualities of all the previous signs, they now have a natural understanding.  Pisceans are very devoted to their friends and are the romantics.  They identify with the universe and love traveling and everything about the sea.

It’s important to note that Astrology subdivides the twelve signs many times over.  The laws of rebirth, karma and free will allow for numberless variations of the order for progressing through these signs.  The number of times the humans have accomplished the full round will determine the old or experienced souls or new souls.  The perfected human is a blend of the best of all the signs.

WHAT ARE THE REASONS ASTROLOGY WORKS?

Tremendous biological, chemical and physiological changes occur at the instant a new born baby draws in the first breath and consequently lets out his or her first cry.  In the Scriptures it is said, “I will breathe the breath of life into them”.   At this moment in time, more than 400 million electromagnetic cells in the brain become programmed, like a computer by the invisible, but powerful cosmic frequencies, or light waves, coming from our Sun, our Moon and the planets in our solar system.  This occurs in a pattern corresponding to their position in space and their mathematically and astronomically -measured aspects to one another in that magnetically-charged moment in time.  The baby  will feel a powerful electromagnetic tug and become “programmed” so to speak.

If this baby could see the heavens above at that moment, he or she would see their birth chart.  This tug actually can be accepted or rejected through the gift of free will, each time in the future when the Sun, Moon and planets conflict or harmonize with each other and the baby’s programmed natal chart.  However, after doing hundreds of birth charts, I have found that most people do live out their chart and experience recurring planetary transits in the working out of their lives.  Transits can trigger a psychological response or an actual life experience, depending on the angle each planet is making to each planet in the birth chart.  These are called conjunctions, oppositions, sextiles, trines or squares (as well as minor aspects not listed) and depending on the angle, these feelings or experiences will appear to be happy or helpful, perhaps challenging or irritating or frustrating.  But, all serve a purpose in our lives, to help us along or to teach us lessons that also ultimately help us along on our path to growth.good teaching wheel.

STARTING OUT WITH THE ASTROLOGY GAME OF CARDS – A Quick Tutorial

The Astrology Game of Cards:    A good place to begin to enjoy the Basics of Astrology!

my cards learning layout

There are 4 cards for each Zodiac Sign in the above picture.

  • Column 1 shows  the Number cards
  • Column 2 shows the Constellation cards
  • Column 3 shows the Key Word cards
  • Column 4 shows the Symbol cards

Notice that on the left column, the Number cards start at the 1st sign Aries and go down to the 12th sign Pisces.  Each of the other columns do exactly the same, showing them in order from Aries to Pisces.   Shuffle the cards and find one card for each of the different types.  Then sort all of the cards into different piles; each pile made up of the same kind of card.  Then, starting with the Number cards, sort that pile into the order of their place in the Zodiac.

Notice that at the very top are two of the Helper cards…one showing the Order of the signs, and the other is an example of a Horoscope Wheel.

The helper card should now be used to help you sort each of the columns from Aries to Pisces.

If you play with the cards this way a few times, you will rapidly become familiar with them and this knowledge will be helpful as you begin to play all the fun games to follow!

If you look at the Symbols cards, you will learn the dates that each sign falls within.  e.g. Aries falls between March 22 and April 20th.  ( The dates for each sign can change according to your year of birth.  Birthdays on a cusp need a Birth Chart  done to determine their actual sign.  e.g. the beginning or end dates could change if you were born close to the beginning or end of a sign.

Now that you are familiar with the cards, a great game to start with is the “old fashioned” game of  WAR.   After shuffling, the deck is divided between the players.  Without looking at their cards, each player simultaneously plays their top card and the highest sign takes all the cards (Pisces being the highest card for this game).  If there is a tie, each then lays 3 cards face down spelling out w-a-r and turns up the 4th card proclaiming the word war and the highest card takes all cards in that play.  The largest pile wins!

Now you are ready to play some more great games!  See my Blog on How to Play The Astrology Game of Cards, which is also on the Menu Bar.

A FULL MOON CHRISTMAS

old fash santa animated

On Christmas, December 25th this year, we will have a Full Moon in the sign of chatty, communicative Gemini.  The last time we had a full moon on Christmas was in 1977! 

So, with families joining together to celebrate the holiday, be aware that full moons bring out the crazies!  Be patient and tolerant and drive carefully.  Lunatic is a word derived from Luna, the name of the moon and when the moon is full, it’s in full energy phase.   It has a strong effect on the tides and even on the fluids in our body; and this time will also be affecting what people say.  You might have to bite your tongue more than once!  Please be aware of the energies out there and make this a happy, serene holiday for yourself and others.  trees and hearts

WISHING ALL MY READERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2016!!

Tonight Venus And Jupiter Will Seem To Merge And Form A “Double Star”

jupiter venus great picSome are saying that for the first time in over two thousand years, the star of Bethlehem will reappear in the western sky, tonight, June 30th.  This is of both historical and religious significance, the last time this particular celestial configuration was seen, the first coming of Christ was recorded in the New Testaments of the Holy Bible, between the years 3 and 2 B.C.

Venus is the planet named after the Goddess of love, and Jupiter is named after the God of Thunder.  On Earth, they will appear so close together that they will look like a dramatic “double star.”   These two planets have been gradually approaching each other for the last few weeks, creeping toward their closest point: 1/3° apart. That’s close enough to be able to see them while covering them with the tip of your pinky finger.  Actually they are about 416 million miles apart in space.

The planets will also look like they are the same size, but Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and Venus is smaller than our Earth.   Because of their relative distances, they appear to be of a similar size when viewed from Earth.

This converging of two planets is known as a conjunction. A conjunction between Jupiter and Venus is not unusual; they were last seen close together in the sky in August of 2014, but this is an extremely close conjunction like the one believed to be the bright double star the Wise Men followed in Bethlehem .

Look West to Northwest tonight right after dark and you will see them with the naked eye.   The Moon, Mars, Mercury and Saturn can also be easily seen tonight.  If you use binoculars or a telescope, you can actually see Jupiter’s four large moon.

Note: The above picture was taken this evening of Jupiter and Venus together from the App called “Skyview” !

About The Moon Sign in Your Chart

moon on your birthThe Moon sign in your chart has everything to do with your emotions.  It’s important to know where yours is located to understand your moods, habits, feelings, romantic inclinations and even your relationship with your mother!

There is much to be said about the Moon in each of the signs and here I will just mention a few facts about each Moon sign.  Also, analyzing the degrees of your Moon sign will give added information about you.   I will randomly select one from each sign as an example.  A lot of my information is from Sybil Leek, an old-time Astrologer who lived from 1917 to 1982 and has over fifty books published.

celestial pictureMoon in Aries people – A lot of energy is wasted on ideas that seem to fall apart and are not followed up by action.  There is lots of charm and enthusiasm.

Taurus Moon – They want love with all the frills and there is lots of attachment to family life.   They like music in their career.  There is  good common sense.

Gemini Moon – Constantly searching for new experiences.  Quick to deal with emergencies because they don’t know the meaning of fear, and they will take chances.

Cancerian Moon – The moon is at home here.  Moods range from high excitement to the depths of depression but neither mood lasts long.  Very shrewd, they can make money easily.

Leo Moon – Very loving and loveable folks.  They enjoy children and see them as a reflection of themselves and find it hard to let them go.   Very responsible in business life.

Virgo Moon – They love being admired for their bodily fitness.  But when obsessed, they can become very irritating insisting others exercise and diet.  Lots of analyzing going on.

Libra Moon – Charming and considerate with very good manners.   They understand other points of view and have pretty good judgment.   Don’t underestimate them.

Scorpio Moon – Phenomenal memories, even recalling childhood days.  They know how to hide their true feelings, but are extremely sensitive.  They have a strong need for secrecy.

Sagittarius Moon – They just know who they are and where they are going.  There can be optimism to the point of carelessness.  They believe they are lucky and they are good friends.

Capricorn Moon – Work and power are all important, little attention is paid to sentiment.   Many achieve world fame.  Men seem to cope with this Moon more effectively than women.

Moon in Aquarius – An outlet is needed for the vivid imagination.  They may seek out unusual relationships and love to study metaphysics and the occult sciences.  A strong need for personal freedom.

Moon in Pisces – Very strong intuition.  They want to do good for as many people as possible. May feel the world is so ill-adjusted that they want to reject it, but guidance teaches that this is part of their karmic experience.


DEGREES OF THE MOON ANALYZED:

Aries Moon – 1 degree – is usually a very shy person.

Taurus Moon – 14 degrees – Needs encouragement in youth to mix with others, feels inadequate.

Gemini Moon – 24 degrees – Dabbles in art appreciation, but not a producer.  Always lost in admiring the work of others.

Cancer Moon – 6 degrees – Unable to cope with money; either the lack of it or too much of it – money just comes and flows away, usually on trivial things.

Leo Moon – 17 degrees – Circumstances will probably take them away from their native land.

Virgo Moon – 24 degrees – Not likely to get married.

Libra Moon – 9 degrees – Aggressive nature; usually enjoys a good fight.

Scorpio Moon – 25 degrees – May be a wolf in sheep’s clothing when it comes to attracting the opposite sex.

Sagittarius Moon – 23 degrees – Emotionally insecure, difficult to find a stable companion to share life, so the insecurity deepens.  Several failed marriages later, they will still be searching.

Capricorn Moon – 24 degrees – May be blunt in speaking, yet friends recognize their sincerity and respect is earned. 

Aquarius Moon – 28 degrees – Often found in compulsive gamblers.

Pisces Moon – 29 degrees – Lack of initiative as much as lack of opportunity makes them feel like a leaf being swept along in the wind.  They can rarely stay where they want to be or do what they would like to do.

IS ASTROLOGY TRUE? DISCOVER THIS FOR YOURSELF!

I like what Derek and Julia Parker have to say in one of my favorite books,  The Compleat Astrologer.

astrology_astronomy_medicine picture

Astrology has always served to enlarge our understanding.  Changes have been made in recent years that promise to have a major effect on the progress of astrology; the new directions it can be expected to take, and the attitudes people are likely to adopt towards it.

These changes are mysterious and illuminating. Progressive astrologers, attempting to relate astrology to a science-oriented society are working with hardheaded scientists.  Looking at other points of view, common ground has been discovered in the field of biological rhythms and cycles, enough to show that astrologers and scientists are becoming very compatible.

The age of Aquarius holds a new fascination for the younger generation in search of meaning, although astrology is for people of all ages and generations. It knows no cultural or age differences.  Astrological truths are for all of us and hold us all together as a human family.

planets pretty

But is astrology true?  You must discover this for yourself.  No one can be persuaded simply by being told about it.  You have to choose to learn more about it.  To understand the influence of the heavenly bodies on mankind, we must understand the science behind astrology and the techniques of its art.  Astrologers honor and respect the truths of past masters.  We want to cast a deeper, clearer light on human life.

A star was the ancient Sumerian symbol for divinity. The stars provided a very impressive background to the interaction of other celestial bodies. Today we are naturally aware that the sun and moon exert a strong physical influence on our lives.  Back then, the Sun kept people warm and faded in the winter; day alternated with night, the sea rose and fell with the tides. These were mysterious processes of growth and decay, and the ebb and flow of the natural order helped provide a physical explanation of the universe.
From the viewpoint of earth, the stars turn around us in the pattern that is virtually unchanging from one year to the next.   The shifts that constantly occur were so slight that they were hardly noticed by the earliest observers.  The seven major bodies were noticed because of their rapid movement against the starry background of sky.  Early observers noticed the Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.  In  Babylonian times there are stories written about  the planets, sun and moon representing gods with the power to direct or intervene in life, each one being allocated power over an area of human experience.

 from Mars seeing Earth and Jupitr   The view from Mars of Earth and Jupiter

For example, Mercury was seen as a quick, cunning and wise god. Mars was the ruler of violence and war; Jupiter was a benevolent king-like ruler of men; Saturn was seen as a distant cooling sun in exile; quick-tempered and cruel.  Gradually, as these associations gained in authority, they were joined together to form the basis of astrological lore.

To add a little humor, today I saw this written:  God made the planet Saturn and he liked it, so he put a ring on it!!! saturn rings

 

THE CANCERIAN MOON CHILD

It is the Summer Solstice and the beginning of the sign of Cancer, or as I prefer to say, the Moonchild!  This period runs from the 21st or 22nd of June to the 21st or 22nd of July.  These dates are changeable depending on the year of birth.    Cancer is a feminine water sign ruled by the moon.  This is the first of the three water signs. The moon affects Cancerians by causing them to be moody, emotional, sensitive, romantic, sentimental and they cry easily.  This is the earth mother of the zodiac, who will nurture and feed anyone who walks in her door.

Moon children are drawn to all types of people and absorb the energy of all the people they meet.  They can be easily drained with their sympathetic ear as they listen to others’ troubles.  Moon children tend to take on others’ problems and offer a lot of sympathy.  They are very sensitive to everything going on with their own family.  They enjoy their home and make it very comfortable and attractive.   They have a constant need for change, which can confuse others and are not very easy to understand.  People tend to come and go in their lives.   However, with those little crab claws (their symbol) they do hang on to certain friends and partners as long as possible.

Picture of Cancer the crab

Moon children have strong intuition and should always pay attention to their hunches. Most of them  have  a very retentive memory recalling even small events from the past in great detail.    They are very idealistic and always do the best job they can. But they will move on and usually by the third year of a job or project, they are ready for a change. Moon children enjoy all kinds of ceremonies and rituals.  They are shrewd in business and in life.  They have the ability to be child-like, and that is not childish!  They use this to their advantage, completing projects that more experienced people could not do.   They are very generous in big ways, but not as much with the little things.  Their personal things mean a lot to them and they are very possessive of them.  If they loan something out and it is not taken care of, or returned, this can upset them very much.

The Cancerian imagination can bring them success in artistic work, writing, or anything creative.    However, when things are not going well, they become easily upset, imagining that others have upset them on purpose. Then they get into a low mood and withdraw.   They are more inclined to cry than to resort to their temper in order to release their frustrations.   Like their symbol the crab, they do not move directly forward in life but tend to move erratically sideways before eventually attaining their goal.  As a Cardinal sign, they are able to accept leadership and the control of most situations if called for, although they do not usually directly seek leadership.   They rely on their charms to get their way and can adapt, even if temporarily, to any of the other signs.  Friendships can always be renewed with very little animosity on the part of either person.

Favorable climate:   They can thrive in almost any climate, but they may not feel quite as well in a very dry desert- like climate as they do near the water.   Being outgoing,  they thrive best in populated cities,  the seashore, and lake communities.

Favorable sports:  swimming, sailing, dance, tennis, racquetball, ping pong.

Favored flowers:  Water lilies, larkspur, jasmine, nocturnal flowers, roses

Perfumes and scents: Light florals, cinnamon, Bay leaves, camphor, cedar, sandalwood, poppy

Best day of the week: Monday the day associated with the moon

Favorable metals:  silver, aluminum

Favorite precious stones:  Pearls, crystals, diamonds, emeralds, opals, onyx

Favorable colors:  Spring shades of green,  iridescent hues, pink, silver

Musical keynote:  They vibrate best to “B”

Best number:  Two

Necessary Herbs:  Peppermint, chamomile, basil, garlic, slippery elm, balm

Favorable trees and plants:  Crabapple, sugarcane, mango, banana, all trees with sap

Wines and Liquors:   sparkling champagne and white wine, mint liquors

It has been said that the luckiest dads have a Cancerian daughter who will always be there for them no matter what!   Since this is my sign, I especially enjoyed writing this post.
