4400

When you look up at the sun today, keep in mind that Venus is hovering right next to it, though you cannot see her. At 2:21 pm CDT, she will make her closest pass as that is the moment of peak conjunction. The moon, also invisible at this time, hovers near by and is not… Continue reading 4400

At 10:32 am CDT today, Venus enters Leo—a sign she won’t leave for good until October 8th. Between now and then, she’ll conjunct Jupiter three times, most conspicuously on July 1st.

Ghosts of Christmas Past

To my preferences, yesterday was one of the most beautiful autumn days one can experience. In some ways, the day had tinges of all four seasons. The morning was crisp—not quite wintry, but certainly fallish; the midday sun was warm allowing one to wander about without sleeves; and the sunset was nearly as early as… Continue reading Ghosts of Christmas Past
