Tonight, the moon finishes its journey through the sign of Sagittarius, leaving the sign and entering a void of course at 10:24 pm. During the last half of this sign, we can expect to feel more optimistic than we have in the past few days as we begin to merge into the lighter half of Capricorn. When the moon is in a sign, we subconsciously begin to pick up the traits of that sign while the moon resides within it.
This article is written using Astronomical Astrology, meaning that the positions of the celestial bodies in the constellations is based on real-time positions in the actual sky. I encourage everyone to take a step outside and learn the zodiac shapes and really get a good feel for what is encouraging your life! It's much more exciting than simply accepting a book's word for it. All times are based in Hattiesburg, MS - CST.

- Moon in Sagittarius - In this mutable fire sign, Jupiter gives us a boost of cosmic energy, which in turn gives us a boost of optimism and a boost in passion. You'll find that your eye for perfection has increased, as well as your want for learning or even sharing your knowledge with others. You'll also feel more inclined to partake in fun activities; for instance, I had a blast picking up Hithchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I didn't feel like reading a few days ago! As far as in the business realm, today is a good day for solving judicial problems, presenting reports, and collaboration. Do not build anything, and anything agricultural is right out. Work on healing the respiratory system today!
- New Moon - The moon contains no light, and is reminiscent of a newborn. It has finished its journey, and it's time to start a new one. This directly corresponds to life, as you should consider starting something new, too! Rituals and prayers for new beginnings are perfect for this time, and you should really think about what you want to draw toward you as the moon begins to grow! Pick today to do new things!
- Moon void of Course - The moon is unaffected by any sign between 10:24 pm and 7:34 am, tomorrow morning.
- Friday - Ruled by Venus, today is a great day for growing and evolving relationships! With the moon in Sagittarius, it's a wonderful day for enjoying friends to the fullest! Be careful, with growth comes pains, and sometimes the truth can hurt. Use today to make friends, grow, become partners, or simply enjoy the company of something you love!
- Numerology: 9 - Nine is the ultimate number, and during this time, all vibrations are of the most positive nature! Today will be a good day for almost everyone, as long as you are not too uptight about life! Freedom, exploration, fun, and intuition are what this day is about, so let all of your stresses melt away.
- Suggested Prayer/Spell work - All-purpose prayer/magic, starting a friendship, starting something new, moving into a new home, settling into a new job, anything NEW! Increasing something in your life, drawing something to you, and healing of the chest.
