I predict this week that a dear friend, a lovely (former stripper) and intelligent (degree in Math) woman will come to visit me.  We shall see how the Albany airport will fare against my prognosticatory abilities.

For the rest of you less fortunate ones, here’s what the stars have to say:

Jupiter (rulership, rules, order happiness — the astrologers who came up with this were filthy statists, but that’s probably a necessary thing to get research grants from kings.  Plus ca change etc. ) has got a double leg construction (though neither of them are particularly tight.) On one leg there’s the sun and Mercury (good news, beneficent change in leadership, strength and growth) and on the other there’s Mars and Venus (marriage, righteous war/just peace, domestic reconciliation) and together they form a “V,” which of course means “victory” though also the door knocks of fate and “va fangul.”

Libra lets Mercury slip away, but with the Sun, Mars and Venus (plus the association of the latter two with Jupiter as mentioned above) all being in the sign of Balance we are looking at a brief period of universal harmony.  Honestly, this is a ridiculously unlikely prediction considering everything that’s going on, but let’s look back on the results during work week 42 and see how clear my foresight is.  Mercury moves into Scorpio, signifying a buff to your speed and agility, but also the risk of poisoning.  Coupled with this, Capricorn receiving the moon in addition to its usual Saturn further signals enhancement to mental/creative abilities, but there is a dark undercurrent.  If you need to figure out how to break contracts or off someone, this is the best week to plan.

Events in my life may be bleeding over into the cards I’m drawing. Eleven of the twelve cards are designated “woman.”
