This is a good point in the Cosmic Calendar to remind you that solar and planetary alignments that occur on one day don’t just disappear the day after. Instead, they remain very active, but more below the conscious astro-radar screen and yet still influencing human and societal affairs in dramatic fashion.
Psychic storm warnings are very much in effect right now as healing vibrations increase due to Mars forming an intense, 135-degree link to Chiron (5:41AM) while the Sun makes a supportive, 60-degree alliance with Chiron (6:16AM). Both of these sky configurations occur while the Moon is still void in fiery Sagittarius. By 7:08AM, the lunar orb enters the industrious, hard-working realm of earthy Capricorn for a two-day adventure.
Adding more gravitas to the tenth sign of the zodiac are Mercury retrograde retreating from Aquarius into Capricorn (11:37AM) while Venus at 12 degrees of Sagittarius unites with Saturn (ruling Capricorn) at 8:12PM. While focusing attention on professional aims makes total sense, slowing down your pace in romance and social affairs may be the right move now to steer clear of the big chill penetrating your mini-universe of key relationships.
Another reason to be cautious concerning primary partnerships is that Juno makes a frictional, 45-degree link to still motionless Jupiter (10:16PM) and the dark-of-the-moon monthly cycle builds in power as the next New Moon arrives on the scene tomorrow at 5:32PM. Look within for guidance as Friday night morphs into Saturday morning.
