American comedian Jim Gaffigan has a punchline about how many work hours and potential worldly success stories may have been lost due to pressing the snooze button on the omnipresent alarm clock. Think of this image and reality today as cosmic vultures seem to be circling around the barely living hoping to feast on their earthly remains in the very near future.
Do your very best to turn the tide from gloomy to semi-favorable as the Sun in Virgo makes its annual opposition to Neptune in Pisces (7:34AM), the Moon makes a supportive, 60-degree tie with Venus (9:01AM), but which also begins a void lunar cycle lasting until 1:54AM tomorrow while Juno in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn (10:45AM), Mercury forms a frictional, 45-degree link with Jupiter (12:52PM), and — just for good measure — Venus and Saturn enter into an abrasive, contra-parallel configuration (10:18PM).
Clearly, there is a pull-the-blankets-over-your-head feeling going on today and no one would really blame you to take a literal or figurative sick-day away from the dog-eat-dog, 24/7-cycle of seemingly endless errands, routines and meetings.
Even though discordant alignments appear throughout this day, consider ways to lighten discussions with dear ones in order to mellow out and enjoy several hours of emotional serenity.
