Lily and Callie at their Saturday AM bout

I hope everyone is enjoying not having to go to work tomorrow. I myself will be driving back from the bustling metropolis of Hampden (the “p” is silent) ME tomorrow.

At first glance, things seemed pretty uneventful this wee, but the further I looked, the worse it got. The week started on a lesser sign of oppositional disorder with the moon and Mars teaming up against us, but that’s not too serious. And yes, both Jupiter ad Saturn are retrograde, but they have been and we’ve been able to deal with that. And yes, Mercury in Libra in the absence of the sun isn’t good, and… at this point I started realizing things – on Monday Venus moves into Virgo which is good for them at this time of year, but causes a real problem for the other eleven signs. Now this month Friday the 13th falls on the 12th, but along with that, that’s the day we get hit with another MERCURY RETROGRADE. Do not go to court on that day!

Once you have the takedown, maintain the pin by using your weight and position your opponent so they cant get leverage with the ground.
