Juno Flyby of Ganymede and Jupiter

Video Credit: Images: NASAJPL-CaltechSWRIMSSS;
Animation: Koji KuramuraGerald Eichstädt, Mike Stetson; Music: VangelisExplanation: What would it be like to fly over the largest moon in the Solar System? In June, the robotic Juno spacecraft flew past Jupiter‘s huge moon Ganymede and took images that have been digitally constructed into a detailed flyby. As the featured video begins, Juno swoops over the two-toned surface of the 2,000-km wide moon, revealing an icy alien landscape filled with grooves and craters. The grooves are likely caused by shifting surface plates, while the craters are caused by violent impacts. Continuing on in its orbit, Juno then performed its 34th close pass over Jupiter’s clouds. The digitally-constructed video shows numerous swirling clouds in the north, colorful planet-circling zones and bands across the middle — featuring several white-oval clouds from the String of Pearls, and finally more swirling clouds in the south. Next September, Juno is scheduled to make a close pass over another of Jupiter’s large moons: Europa.

Some of the Witchcraft and/or Magickal Correspondences for Monday

Witchcraft and/or Magickal correspondences for every day of the week can differ from one web site to another from one practitioner to another. My aim is to bring you some but definitely not all of the correspondences for different days of the week from three to four websites per day when possible. I suggest you print out the Witchy correspondences to place in your Book of Shadows/Grimoire/or whatever name if any you refer to your personal book or computer file that you keep reference information in for spells, rituals, charms, talismans, etc. As such the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence post will no longer have any pictures on it unless necessary to a correspondence, so you will use less ink when printing them out.

Daily Horoscope

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 1:30 PM EDT today (10:30 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Ex-partners and old friends are back in your world again. You might encounter these people in person or through social media. Perhaps, you are thinking about them or they appear in your dreams? Be patient with those who are closest to you at this time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Allow extra time in your work or your job because Mercury retrograde might trip you up. This is why you are encountering silly errors, mixed-up communications, missed appointments and misplaced paperwork. Late deliveries and delays will also be par for the course. (Yikes!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Expect to hear from old flames either today or sometime in the next few weeks. (This might already have happened.) You might encounter these people in person or online or in your thoughts or dreams. Some kind of previous scenario with your kids might also reoccur.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today (or this week) you might be in contact with relatives you haven’t seen for a while. They might be visiting you. Family reunions might also be taking place because it’s old home week for many of you due to the influence of Mercury retrograde.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This current Mercury retrograde will wreak havoc with transportation plans for your sign. Be proactive about taking care of your car. Allow extra time when taking public transportation. Confused communications, missed appointments and misplaced items are classic now. Frustrating? Yes!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial transactions might be delayed now. Certainly, cheques in the mail will be late. This is because Mercury retrograde is taking place in your House of Money. Be smart and double check everything to do with cash flow and possessions to avoid errors and slipups.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have a lot of energy now because the Sun and fiery Mars are in your sign. However, Mercury retrograde is also taking place in Libra, which means people from your past are back in your world. In addition, it’s easy for you to forget things, misplace things, lose things and miss appointments. Courage!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Although Mercury retrograde is frustrating for most signs, it can be a useful thing for your sign because it will actually help you do research and discover the answers to old questions and solutions to old problems. Dig deep and study the past to learn what you can.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Expect to run into old friends now. You might also encounter members of groups, clubs and organizations from your past. This could give you an opportunity to clarify things and catch up on old history. It might be useful for you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mercury retrograde is taking place at the top of your chart, which means you might be in touch with parents, bosses and teachers as well as authority figures from your past. This could be a learning experience for you. Or perhaps you want to avoid these people? Either way – it’s your choice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a wonderful day (and week) to finish important papers, manuscripts and studies. In fact, it will be easy to study the past or study history or do research based on information from the past. However, travel plans might be delayed or cancelled.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Disputes about shared property are possible at this time. However, Mercury retrograde will help you to clear up past issues and finish old work regarding wills, inheritances, estates, taxes, debt, insurance issues and anything to do with jointly-held property.
