Ok, so I may have forgotten to cast a horoscope this week, what with the midweek drinking and partying and the boss being out of town and all.

But, the great thing about Astrology is even if you don’t remember until the last minute, the stars are still up there!  This week’s reading are a bit troublesome in light of current Glib events, and yet here they are.

Good news – we have Jupiter aligned with Mercury, the Sun and the Moon.  Literally, the first two translate as “good” and “news” while the sun and moon alignment indicates completion or perfection.

Bad news – Saturn aligns with the Earth and the Sun.  Saturn is the the symbolic opposite to Jupiter (what with the cannibalism and the castration and all that) and in the guise of Chronos or the Grim Reaper signifies endings.  The earth being part of this draws Saturn’s attention homeward.

Mars in Sagittarius counsels precision in conflict.  Pick your battles, take some time to decide on tactics.  This is backed up by the moon being in Taurus, which warns about being foolishly bullheaded.  While this might be an issue some of the time, this week you should see an increase in mental acuity with Capricorn gathering Jupiter, Mercury, the Sun and Saturn into its fold.  Rounding out the sky is Venus in Aquarius, indicating a peaceful and bountiful love life.
