The skies are being a bit mysterious today.  No alignments or conjunctions, no occluded oppositions.  Just a bunch of planets minding their own business.  Or so they’d like you to think…

Usually when the sun is in your sign, you’ve got other good things going on, if for no other reason than two of the luckiest planets (Mercury and Venus) are never too far away from the Sun.  Unfortunately, this week Sagittarius isn’t seeing that, so its prime influences foresight, perception, precision will be dominant without extra goodies starwise.  Sagittarius’ loss is Capricorn’s gain as Venus is there this week.  Also joining her is her uncle Jupiter and her grandfather Saturn.  We have three generations in one of the oldest and most primordial signs, making this an excellent time to pass down skills and family lore, so get to either learning or teaching.  This is also a time of family disputes, given the somewhat… troubled history between Jupiter and Saturn, as well as the fact that Venus, being produced without procreation herself, is most explicitly NOT an avatar of familial love.  However, Venus is a harmonizer, which will let hhe polarities represented by Jupiter and Saturn exist in a sense of completion rather than opposition.  There is a lot of power in this celestial arrangement, so make use of it while you can.  Especially since there is going to be some chaos this week as the moon is in Aries.  Mars and Mercury in Scorpio means… something about attacks?  An attack you can see coming.

A rather grim draw this week.  Lots of swords, lots of reverses including the only major.

Sagittarius:  10 of Cups reversed – A false sense of security, indignation, violence

Capricorn:  2 of Coins – gaiety, recreation, news and messages in writing, obstacles, agitation, trouble, embroilment.

Aquarius:  King of Swords reversed – Cruelty, perversity, barbarity, perfidy, evil intention

Pisces:  10 of Swords – pain, affliction, tears, sadness, desolation

Aries:  Page of Wands – This card has a typical reading which I’m ignoring because of this footnote “A dangerous rival, if followed by the Page of Cups.”  Guess what was drawn next?
