Almanac For Friday 23 August 2013 (Venus)

Friday 23 August 2013 (Venus)

Moon Phase – waning – 87% visible – Moon in Aries at 08:12 BST

Moon in Aries

An increase of activity, impetuosity, striving, and energetic action. This Moon favours occupations which demand courage, decisiveness, swiftness and initiative, but anything which requires patience, diligence and diplomacy is likely to decline now. It is a good time for athletics, and for solving problems by ‘brainstorming’. Dental visits are not recommended on the Aries Moon.

In the body, Aries rules the head and all the organs located on it.

Lunar Day 19

A difficult, even dangerous, day in all astrological traditions. It is suited only for struggles with enemies, and the destruction of anything outmoded. On this day, good deeds and noble actions may bring a very different result to the one you had been hoping for. It isn’t suitable for starting anything important, especially connected with earning money. Marriage is undesirable, and you should also avoid drunks.


This day is unhappy, so best of all, if possible, to stay home and not to go anywhere. One should not get married on this day, and intimate life should be limited.

Especially beware drunken people on this day, they might be able to make harm to one’s health and even to incur severe damage.

A child born on this day will be kind and sweet. An illness will pass, and dreams will be fulfilled.


Symbol: the spider. Difficult and dangerous day. The danger of black magic manifestations, spiritual intoxication, split of consciousness, poisoning. New ideas and influences can be in reality a “devil’s net”. The day is connected to ethical cleansing, repentance, getting rid of pride, lie, illusions, alien thoughts. It would be good to sit at a camp fire, to walk around one’s house with a candle. The only way to reduce the negativity of this day is through one’s high moral qualities, dedication and modesty.

In order to figure the planetary hours exactly, figure out the total hours between Sunrise and Sunset (in your time zone), then convert into minutes. Divide by 12 and this will be the exact planetary hour time for each. Remember to accurately figure the sunrise and sunset for your time zone first.
