Friday’s Moon in business-class Capricorn set a rather dry, if productive, tone. Luna spends the daylight hours in brief harmony with the Sun, but for the most part conjoined the Tail of the Dragon. The conjunction with the Tail is good for negating negatives, but is not ideal for creating positives.
The austere quality of the above configurations provides quite a contrast with the day’s most notable event, the ingress of Venus into enthusiastic Sagittarius. Here the bright jewel of the heavens trades the gothic stylings of Scorpio for a hunter’s cap and bow. It is not beasts Venus hunts, but excitement and glory. Venus in Sagittarius revels in epic tones, the spectacle of excellence and action-packed aesthetics. This year Venus will share Sagittarius with Jupiter, promising extra entertainment until the Morning Star heads into Capricorn on November 25th.
Though Venus’ move certainly lends the night some warmth, the Moon spends the entirety of the dark hours closely conjoined cold, grumpy Saturn, delaying promised pleasures. The wee hours are especially cranky, due to an impending Moon-Mars square.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
