Today – as the first day of a workweek – appears to have a pleasant glow, courtesy of an upbeat, expansive Moon-Jupiter parallel (2:55AM PST) and a flowing trine between Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo (7:08AM PST). The Moon-Jupiter link adds a note of buoyancy and confidence while Venus happily associated with Mars helps everyone striving to balance their feminine and masculine sides. The Venus-Mars rapport can also help love birds strengthen their romantic bonds. While business and professional success look promising, keep in mind that yesterday’s Sun union with Mercury retrograde, as well as the frictional Mercury square to Mars and the tension-creating Mars-Saturn 45-degree encounter, are still rippling through the psychic atmosphere. Counting your chickens before they hatch is a bad idea. Plus – the monthly Moon-Saturn opposition from Aries to Libra (10:57PM PST) is magnified in a challenging manner, as it builds up in power all-day, possibly with an increasing air of frustration and limitation. If you are beginning to sense a rise in the cosmic uncertainty principle, it’s due to Uranus in Aries slamming on the brakes while retrograde as it approaches its direct station this Friday night December 9.

Spellcrafting for Monday
SPELL TO KEEP AWAY NIGHTMARES AND BRING PROPHETIC DREAMS
Stitch a small pillow of muslin of another light weight fabric.
create a pillow that is able to be opened by putting Velcro at one end.
This allows you to “refresh” the pillow from time to time with new herbs without having to unstitch the end or make a new pillow. You may wish to cover muslin pillow with a light weight, washable “casing” as well. Once you stitch the pillow together, fill with:
4 oz dried lavender flowers
4 oz dried sage
2 oz ground orris root-as a preservative-optional
4 oz deer’s tongue herb
2 oz cedar shavings
4 oz coltsfoot herb
4 oz sweet fern
2 oz violet
Keep dream pillow under or inside of your regular bed pillow. When storing your pillow each morning you may either leave it where it is or put it inside of a plastic bad by your bed. Storing it in the bag will help the herbs retain their freshness for a longer period of time.
