If you are looking for a day this month to play hooky from work you would rather not accomplish, this Friday may fit the bill. The Moon in Aquarius making its monthly polarity to Jupiter in Leo (1:17AM) arrives early, and already suggests that good fortune may not be easy to attract — unless you are naturally lucky and the gods and goddesses of the higher realms often seek you out to give you celestial favors.
Ceres squaring Chiron (7:41AM) and the Moon square to Saturn (9:15AM) are two more unnerving sky configurations that point more to apparent obstacles to leap over rather than smooth sailing. In addition, the Moon-Saturn clash (9:15AM) also begins a void lunar cycle in Aquarius that lasts until 2:04PM. Slow your tempo across the board during this 4+ hour limbo time-span. Finish old projects instead of initiating dynamic new enterprises.
Once the Moon enters the psychic currents of the universal water sign of Pisces (2:04PM), reach out with a kindhearted approach to dear ones in trouble or on the mend. Use your words to comfort — not harm. Empathy is in; self-centeredness is out. Dance the night away as the Moon in Pisces can give you happy feet. Keep a journal by your bed to record nocturnal soul wanderings with the Moon embracing Neptune (10:18PM). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.
