Friday Sun Sextiles Chiron, and educational or health issues (or both) tend to dominate the day. Mostly it should be benevolent, but old wounds and problems may reopen under this aspect during a Mercury Retrograde. Moon and Mercury both enter Capricorn (but from opposite ends of the sign!), and Venus conjoins Saturn. That tends to make this another “nose to the grindstone” kind of day, similar to Wednesday earlier this week. Friday night (and arguably Thursday) is also “Dark of the Moon,” the powerful period some use for rituals that precedes the New Moon (of Saturday).
