The cosmos appears eager to give earthlings a boost right now — even though the dark-of-the-moon monthly phase is gathering strength. This phase always comes about at the tail end of every 29.5-day solar-lunar dance through the heavens. With the Scorpio New Moon about to occur tomorrow and the lunar orb trailing behind the Sun, think more along the lines of finishing up old business from the past few weeks.
Helping you make great progress in completing odds and ends on a high note are inspirational, 72-degree links from Pallas to Jupiter (12:21AM), Mercury to Juno (2:50AM), and the Sun to Pluto (10:07AM). The 72-degree aspect — known as a quintile in astrological jargon — is based on dividing the zodiacal circle of 360-degrees by the number five. Five, in many numerological systems, signifies mental energy and thought power — which humans should be using always for creative pursuits rather than selfish and/or destructive purposes.
The monthly Moon-Mercury union (2:27PM) provides an additional boost for literary and educational endeavors while Venus contributes a touch of healing and mystery by making 135-degree (10:39AM) and 72-degree (11:03PM) contacts with Chiron and Pluto, respectively. Prepare for an onslaught of cosmic changes tomorrow — highlighted by the Sun and Venus charging into Scorpio nearly simultaneously.
