If yesterday carried some notes from the school of hard knocks, today is somewhat brighter and cheerier. Venus attempts to make up for any of its halfhearted support on Friday by forming a strong, uplifting parallel with the Moon (6:54AM). This boost for arts, crafts, and social activities can give antique hunters and collectible enthusiasts extra pizazz while looking for hidden gems at community fairs, estate sales, and flea markets. The asteroid Vesta is ripe for a change and leaves airy Aquarius for watery Pisces (10:54AM). For both buyers and sellers, themes associated with the oceans, sailing, and sea creatures may be extra appealing and valuable.
On a more personal note, let your compassionate nature and empathic side overrule any tendency to be a hermit or curmudgeon. Reach out to distant relatives who you haven't communicated with for a while during a Moon-Mercury trine (2:56PM). Tensions may resurface later on when the Moon squares Mars (6:59PM) and this 90-degree aspect also begins a void lunar uncertainty zone that lasts until 10:49PM when the Moon enters fiery Leo.
During the 3 hour void-of-course lunar time-span, finish odd jobs with a smile and be a pillar of strength to beleaguered loved ones.
