My astronomer friend rang me yesterday evening
to direct me outside and looking to the west to a lovely
line up of very bright Venus with Jupiter lower down in the sky
slightly to the right, and there was fixed star Spica (he said when
asked)above Venus but closer than Jupiter, more over to the right.
This was quite spectacular. My friend was most enamoured by the bright
Venus and Jupiter, not so bright below, and on enquiring of the light
above, was told it was Spica according to his astronomy software.
Spica means "the potential for brilliance" in Solar Fire keywords. Add
this to the brightness of Venus having a few days before conjoined
Also the fact that prior to Venus conjoining Jupiter on 2 Sep, a few
days before it ran parallel in declination south with Jupiter
So that means I, two hours earlier by good chance (with in mind to
talk to over a problem job I had with one of my clients in the know),
met up with this good friend/client of mine who I first met when Luna
was occulted by Aldebaran. The interesting thing was that he made note
that the first time we met was just a few shops down from where we met
On checking all this out, the problem job starts to look hopeful, and
clienta are going to need some luck on this, that is for sure. Maybe
the stars will be on our side. However that S.Eclipse is coming up
right on my Neptune and the job being a block of land with subsiding
problems on it's roadside boundary certainly seems to be very apt.
Am further hopeful that Bernadette's analysis of the first SE in the
Saros cycle for upcoming SE is rather transformative, in what seems to
be a predominantly positive way.
