Venus enters Capricorn today. The aesthetics of this position are perhaps best seen through architecture, which mixes the power of the manifest with the beauty of structure. In matters of desire, Venus in Capricorn counsels us with the wisdom of delayed gratification. Restraint need not be a matter of repression, merely patience. Venus comes to Capricorn seeking earthy delights and assurances, and there are manifest pleasures to be found. Venus’ time in Capricorn this year, which runs until December 19th, will be more difficult than usual, as the morning star must share the Goat’s sign with the South Node, Saturn, and Pluto.
The bulk of Monday is low energy, due to the Moon being waned down to nothing in Scorpio. Late night, Luna enters Sagittarius and prepares to conjoin the Sun there. Together, the two will bury the old lunar month and bring to life a new one, but not until tomorrow.

The Sun enters Sagittarius Friday morning. Unlike the Sun’s time delving through the winding tunnels of mysterious Scorpio, our star’s passage through Sagittarius favors the bright and linear. It stimulates goal-directed behavior and underscores questions of direction and purpose. The Sun will be in Sagittarius until the solstice on December 21st. The Moon is both fortified and challenged today. In Libra, Luna is strengthened by Venus’ profitable, good-natured conjunction with Jupiter. The stage is set for good times, but obstacles must be addressed. Luna spends the middle of the day configured to the Nodes, the Head and Tail of the Dragon. This configuration may fog the present with complex, long-term issues, temporarily clouding the mind. Departing from the Dragon, the Moon moves on to a late-night square with Saturn. Responsible Saturn emphasizes obligations and limits joy. While conversations may lean toward serious topics, the evening is nonetheless not without some charm. The wee hours are, however, not worth chasing.

Revel-ready Venus and jovial Jupiter spend Thursday uplifting a fastidious Moon in Virgo, and with good result. The afternoon period where the Moon is between aspects to the two benefics is a particularly well-omened slice of time.
Come evening, the Moon makes a brief sextile to the Sun and then saunters into stately Libra, setting a social tone for the night. Whisper what secrets you will to each other, for these are the Sun’s last hours in covert Scorpio this year.

Huzzah! Mercury stations direct on its day, and with the Moon in Virgo, its sign of exaltation. The Messenger planet’s resumption of forward motion is a fine thing, as it decreases the ambient disorder a notch, making it easier to get things from point A to point B without having to resort to exotic backup plans.
While the day is rather rational and orderly, night is significantly more slippery, due to the Moon’s opposition with enchanting/intoxicating Neptune. Linearity is, however, restored by the late-night Moon-Saturn trine, which ensures that sensible bedtimes are observed.

The first portion of the day is well supported by the sunny Moon in Leo’s optimistic trine with fortunate Jupiter in Sagittarius. The Moon squares the Sun shortly thereafter, signaling our ingress into the falling action of the 4th quarter of the lunar month.
As evening approaches, the Moon shifts into pragmatic, detail-oriented Virgo, and from there makes its first aspect to fierce Mars in Scorpio, giving the evening a bit of an edge. As night deepens, the Moon moves on to a trine with Uranus, catalyzing the unexpected.
