The Goddess Book of Days
Friday is the day of Venus. It takes its name from Frigg, the goddess of love and transformation. She rules the spiritual side of a person that manifests in the physical. Because of this, Friday is often thought of as dangerously unpredictable. This is expressed in an old East Anglian adage:
Friday’s day will have its trick,
The fairest or foulest day of the week.

The Pagan Book of Days
A Mars-Neptune square this morning can point to temporarily low energy levels, dear Aries. You might view this as a necessary dip so that you can build or conserve energy or redirect yourself in a better direction. Also today, however, is a Mercury-Sun connection that helps clarify a matter, mainly related to friendship or a pet project. Alternatively, this can be a time of further developments on an initiative from mid-December that is only now gaining traction. Today is useful for seeing a plan or friendship with greater clarity. You might also be playing with emerging new ideas for long-term plans and projects. Friends have something important to contribute or say right now. The full details of a plan may be born. The Moon spends the day in your soul sector, and both Mercury and the Sun are moving into this same area of your solar chart, pointing to the need for extra rest or privacy and time to regenerate.
As Mercury and the Sun align at the top of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, they help you see career and life path goals or professional matters and responsibilities more clearly, at least in a balanced, logical way. Verbalizing your thoughts, whether written or orally, give them life and help you understand them better. Your powers of reasoning are particularly strong right now, and there can be meaningful conversations or communications occurring that help you turn a corner, at least on a mental level. Physical energy levels are another story as Mars and Neptune form a square this morning, temporarily throwing you off course, but for good reason, as you may need a breather. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, and both Mercury and the Sun are moving into this same area of your solar chart, pointing to an increased focus on kinship, community, and happiness goals in the weeks ahead.
Illumination can occur now on a mental level today, dear Gemini. There is increased mental clarity with you, and it’s a good day for gaining perspective on your life. Conversations, news, and thoughts occur now that help you clear up misconceptions and make definite plans. Blanks are filled in, mainly related to studies, personal interests, travel, or a communications project. You may feel compelled or excited to share your ideas, beliefs, and personal philosophies with others. This is a time to connect with others, but keep in mind that a Mars-Neptune square can point to temporary challenges putting ideas into motion. Take your time with new beginnings. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, stimulating your awareness of long-term goals and responsibilities. The Sun and Mercury are moving into this same sector, and you’ll be paying more and more attention to these things.
The Sun and Mercury come together in your solar eighth house, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to see an intimate relationship or financial issue more clearly now. If you need to sort out a complicated matter, this is an excellent time for doing so, keeping in mind that a Mars-Neptune square can leave you feeling a little lacking in the energy department. It’s not so much a time for deep connections as it’s good for looking at deeper issues with more objectivity and reason. Detaching yourself just enough from emotions can, in fact, be quite useful now, as you can share your ideas and thoughts in a manner that puts others at ease. You could be solving a mystery or problem now. You can gain new insight into your motivations and what makes a partner tick, and it’s a stellar time for bringing up a topic that typically is difficult to discuss because it’s complicated, taboo, or sensitive. The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, and both Mercury and the Sun are moving into this same sector. Your spirit for adventure and learning is growing!
Mercury and the Sun align in the sign opposite yours today, dear Leo, and mental energy is intense and in the spotlight. A Mars-Neptune square this morning does tend to weigh heavily on your energy levels, and can perhaps confuse your desires just for now, but you’re in an excellent position to see a partnership more clearly. While physical energy may not be at a peak, your mind is busy processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas today, and interactions or conversations with someone can help jumpstart important thinking. Relationships themselves can be the primary topic of discussion now. Some emotional detachment can be quite helpful at the moment. Conversations happen that may not engage your emotions, but that can be very constructive, fair, and supportive. There may be new clarity or a turning point in a relationship for some of you. This is also a good time to let others take the lead in conversations.
The Sun and Mercury, your ruler, join together today, dear Virgo, putting you in the spotlight, quite possibly about your work or services. While a Mars-Neptune transit this morning can leave some things up in the air or can seem to drain you of physical energy, it’s a mentally active day. A work or health matter may gain traction or clarity. You’re inclined to do a lot of reasoning things out and attending to details. Details tend to serve you well as you remember important things or fill in some blanks now. You’re in great shape for making plans and lists, editing, refining, and talking things through. Work or daily routines can keep you unusually busy, and a significant discovery may be made in the process. You might try putting thoughts to paper or voicing your ideas, as either activity tends to frame your ideas in such a way that you see things more clearly.
Your considerable ability to express yourself is on display today, dear Libra. While there can be some difficulties with energy levels, you’re very involved on a mental level. You are exceptionally articulate and possibly dramatic, and you might enjoy entertaining others with your conversation. Or, today’s Sun-Mercury alignment can point to sharing your ideas about or with a lover, children, or friend. This can also be a time for gaining some clarity about creative projects, a relationship, course, or a hobby. You’re taking more pride in your work, ideas, and beliefs today, and others are taking note. Creative projects could reach a turning point, or there can be a romantic revelation. Observations made now are likely to be significant, and assessing recent ideas can be beneficial. The Moon spends the day in your work and routines sector, and both the Sun and Mercury are moving into the same area of your solar chart. You’re moving into a period of increased focus on routines and health.
This can be a time of meaningful conversations about or with family, dear Scorpio, as the Sun and Mercury join forces in your solar fourth house. Things may be coming together on the home front or regarding living conditions, and ideas can blossom now. Mental activity is strong today, even though motivation or energy levels can be dipping. It’s better to use this energy not only for nostalgia, but for making plans, solving problems, and handling details. You are taking pride in your ability to handle personal matters. Analyzing emotional issues, while sometimes disruptive, is highly helpful today. Significant ideas, news, or conversations can be part of your day, even if you don’t yet know their value! The Moon spends the day in your leisure sector, and both the Sun and Mercury are moving into this same area of your solar chart. While today is mentally oriented, coming days are more playful and expressive.
This can be a mentally busy time, dear Sagittarius, although there are several hints that life is becoming a little quieter and more comfortable. Pay particular attention to details, news, and ideas presented around you today with the Sun and Mercury joining forces in your communications sector. An idea or project can blossom now, and it can be significant. This is useful energy for sorting things out and solving problems, although energy levels may not match mental activity today with a Mars-Neptune square in play this morning. Even so, your ideas can be in demand now, and you might gain some clarity on your studies, trips, or projects now as new details emerge. Wonderful things can result from conversations you engage in today.
While a Mars-Neptune square can point to temporarily low physical energy, dear Capricorn, it’s likely to shape up to be a very logical, mentally bright day. This is especially the case regarding money matters and practical affairs with the Sun and Mercury aligning in your resources sector, and new insights, ideas, and perspectives on these things can figure strongly now as further details emerge. Helpful information can come your way, or may already be in place – they only need to be processed, organized, and sorted. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project first considered in mid-December, or new developments related to an issue from around that date. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, where Mercury and the Sun are entering today and tomorrow, and you’re likely to enjoy a quicker pace and more stimulating days ahead.
The Sun and Mercury, both in your sign, reach an alignment today, dear Aquarius, and you are heard loud and clear! You may feel compelled to express your ideas and make an impact, or others are talking about you. People may be wanting to know your opinion or advice on a matter. This can also be a good time for opportunities to connect with helpful people or those who are primarily interested in you, as well as a time when a partner has much to say and seeks your attention. There may be an epiphany or culmination of a project now, and you’re able to see details you overlooked in the past. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and both Mercury and the Sun are leaving your sign and entering this same area of your solar chart, pointing to an increasing focus on enjoying the moment and building on what you have.
The Sun and Mercury align in your soul sector today, dear Pisces, and this is a time for verbalizing or sorting out a private matter. You’re inclined to analyze and process recent events or ideas, and ideas coming to you now can be highly significant. Revealing conversations or details emerging can prompt a turning point of sorts. You are better able to communicate or rationalize a matter that, before today, was difficult to express or understand. A Mars-Neptune square is also active this morning, however, and this can act to drain your energy levels just for now, pointing to the need to hold off on major activities. Even though you can be a little caught up in your private world, personal appeal is big today with the Moon in your sign and both Mercury and the Sun moving into Pisces.
Today’s Witches Rune
Meaning: The first meaning of this rune is quite obvious: it represents women. Any woman that is important in the question, whether you know her or not, will be represented by this rune. Mother, sister, aunt, grandma, a female boss, friend, lover or even enemy… all can be symbolized by the appearance of this rune.
In a more general sense, this rune is related to traditional female abilities and characteristics, such as giving birth, nurturing, comforting and healing. When this rune appears, you can count on the sympathy of others towards you or your situation. In its most negative aspects, the Woman rune can show over-protectiveness, a patronizing attitude or co-dependency. It often strives to maintain the status quo, refusing to change even if the situation is bad.
The Woman rune is connected to nurturing – nurturing a relationship, a person or a project. Like the Moon rune, it can be related to finding a safe place to rest and heal, but while the Moon implies a solitary retreat, the Woman often shows that you need to go back to the people you trust, the people you feel safe with.
Healing is another strong aspect of this symbol, as well as teaching. You can be both the patient/student or the healer/teacher when this rune appears. This rune is also connected to creativity, but in a way that is different from the Romance rune. While the latter is about the conception of a project – the initial stages of creation – the Woman is about the birth of this project. When your creation is brought out into the world, fully manifested.
In relationship readings, this rune isn’t bad, but rather weak. While it can indicate subtle ties between people, these are usually so, so subtle that the partners can easily drift away from each other. It can show that one of the partners sees the other as someone who needs to be protected and healed, rather than an equal. Usually, the romance is a bit stagnated when this rune appears, or very close to becoming a friendship.

You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.

Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.

Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
