Transiting Venus conjoins my natal moon this afternoon. “Café Astrology” describes the transit as follows:
“Your mood is especially romantic and sensual. Let it guide you, and you might just find yourself in a very fortunate situation. This energy is excellent for any behind-the-scenes or domestic activities. It’s an opportune time to make domestic purchases and to buy or wear new clothes for the first time. Beauty treatments are favored. This is a time when praise or compliments naturally come your way, when you receive friendly greetings, and when you might extend a hand to others you care about. Aiding someone financially or spiritually is bound to boost your own spirits.”
I did just buy a new Bally hoodie that I haven’t worn yet, but it’s too hot outside to put that on. I’ve also told myself that I’m not going to buy anything else before I go to Las Vegas, and I’ve actually been pretty good with my money lately.
What would really please me on a day like today is take a personal day from work. I am entitled to them, but unlike my co-workers, I just never use them. I feel a tremendous amount of guilt just calling in sick — even when I’m on death’s door.
Anyway, this energy will linger into tomorrow, so I’m going to take advantage of it and make tomorrow a lazy, decadent day. In the meantime, I’m going to try to sit down with my new boss for a few minutes today to discuss the staffing issues that make me feel as if my reliability is being exploited by my fellow employees. I should be charming and even more handsome than usual today, so it’s probably a good time to make my case to my superiors.
Wish me luck. On second thought, save that for another day. I’ve got the stars on my side this afternoon!
