I’m a happy bunny! Last night after all that rain and cloud we had a clear evening and I finally managed to see Venus. We were trying to spot it at our Inanna workshop last Sunday but it was hidden by dense clouds. Last night however, I got lucky. I saw the lovely crescent moon quite low on the horizon just as it was getting dark a beautiful sight in its own right. I always think that first sighting of the new crescent moon is exciting and a sign of promise.
I knew Venus was lower than the moon and we live in a bit of a dip with no clear view of the south western horizon so I drove half a mile or so onto the main road where you can get a clear view and as I headed up the hill, there was bright Venus twinkling enticingly. I was happy and drove safely and stopping in a layby to get a good view. The things I do in my planet hunting – I then went to the farm shop for mushrooms to justify my trip out! 😉
Tonight is also clear and the moon is visible now in the South west a beautiful crescent, slightly fuller than last night it’s quite cloudy on the horizon to see Venus,and it will soon set so you get a short window of opportunity to see it. If you’re looking, good luck! If you don’t see Venus the moon is lovely, I adore that combination of blue and silver.

Venus planet of love moves from generous, enthusiastic Sagittarius into serious Capricorn. This can be a bit of bump, a morning after type of feeling. On the plus side, Sagittarius can go over the top whereas Capricorn is all about reality. So on the run up to Christmas Venus in Capricorn can help us to be sensible in our approach to the festive season. It is very easy to go overboard and overspend particularly when we are being encouraged by glossy adverts to buy buy buy. I can get a bit excitable in my local supermarket!
Venus in Capricorn ties in with the rise with a responsible and considered attitude to gift giving. So it is worth taking time to think what your nearest and dearest would really like, this may well be time spent with them rather than fancy presents. So watch out family, I’ll be round to bother you with my homemade recycled presents. I have plenty of rubber bands, string and imagination..! 😉
Astrologically, it is a busy day today as in addition to Venus moving into Capricorn we have a new moon in Sagittarius. New moons indicate a new beginning of another new cycle. This is a good time to harness the Sagittarian enthusiasm and set your intention for this lunar month. Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, so loosen your bow and shoot those arrows off. Remember, with Venus in Capricorn keep those intentions realistic and be prepared to work towards your goals.

Well this is what we were hoping to see last night in Norfolk- Jupiter conjunct Venus! I’m going to try again tonight, they will still be quite close to one another but are gradually parting company; definitely worth a look though.Venus will continue to grace our evening skies in the coming months so look out for a bright ‘star’ in the West after sunset. Astrologically Jupiter conjunct Venus is a time of generosity and sharing of love and kindness.

I’m very happy to say that our event Inanna’s Descent went well and we had a lovely day at Bawdeswell Village Hall.
Thank you to Tuesday Simmonds for working with me and all the ladies who joined us. We were hoping to spot the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter but unfortunately it was too cloudy. Instead, I came away with this beautiful rose which is a symbol of the goddess; you can’t win them all!
