Dopey. A Mars Neptune conjunction or meeting in the heavens at 1:57 am CDT early this morning is bound keep a little fog pocket in your brain as you start your day—take your time with early calls and chores.
But do tackle the hard jobs first thing as the only kiss in the Skywatch today shows up at high noon when the Moon sextiles friendly Uranus. Hope you can take Friday afternoon off as the Moon squares Venus at 3:12 pm and then squares Jupiter at 5:09 pm followed by the Moon squaring Mercury at 7:30 pm.
Squares to Venus and Jupiter indulge our desires to be lazy and to order doubles at the bar. The square to Mercury is minor and just warns you to make sure they got your pizza order correct.
However, Luna turns Void of Course a minute later until she enters home sign Cancer at 10:06 pm, Friday night.
This is the beginning of a weekend to remember.
Loose lips can sink ships today. Caution lights are up.

Mars events tend to come on early and this one inspires the urge to escape in many folks. Problems with drugs, booze, water and poisons are all more likely now, along with actions that could be called deceitful and misleading.
Mars can be violent, impatient and stupid, so call it early and take no chances Thursday night. Neptune squares bring us strange sleep and dreams—nightmares to the little ones.
Again, this is a rare event that happens once a year. Best to keep it simple and to let times change.

Cut everyone some slack this evening if things get a bit pissy. This is a rare event that shows up only once every two years. Likely you’ll be tired with Mars carrying Saturn’s responsibilities around. Suggest you call it early.
As times change.
Slow down. But keep your radar on.

And this positive pair is going to stay connected in the Skywatch through Sept 2. How? Mercury is now slowing down and will Retrograde on Aug 30 in Virgo stopping right on top of Jupiter. Good news is how we describe this conjunction.
New ideas can be brilliant now and the ability to speak our mind improves if we concentrate. True, Jupiter is also the ruler of bullshit and some will be flying in the headlines over the next twelve days. But the real value is that we can expand our thinking and plans with careful analysis now and use the Virgo energy to be more efficient, practical and successful. Yes, yes, yes.
As the old radio newsman used to say: this is the time to make some news of your own. Starting Sunday night.
As times change.
