Oh My Stars

For those of you living in the United States and to a lesser extent in Canada, the next few days represent Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As a Canadian, these are concepts that I was not exposed to as a child, but are now deeply ingrained in the North American consciousness.

For those of you elsewhere who are not familiar with the concept of Black Friday, think of it this way: imagine you are a member of a culture whose religion demands that there be a three or four day festival every year where you eat until you barf, have sex until you drop, and in between you run around screaming at the top of your lungs. It’s just like that, except that the religion in question is capitalism, and the eating, sex, and screaming are all replaced with spending money. Cyber Monday is the same thing, except instead of encouraging you to go out and shove people around at the store, shoppers are encouraged to buy online and complain about how long the pages take to load.

Although the whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday concept is more of a virus on society than anything else, if you happen to have caught that bug, astrology can at least help you get through it in an efficient manner.

If you are going to give in to this impulse, there are a few things you should know in advance. First of all, on Friday the Moon is in Aquarius. This generally tends to favor the purchase of things like electronics and communications devices and things that are perhaps more of a novelty item than practical. For Sunday and Monday, the Moon is in Pisces. That is a much better time to be acquiring products or services that involve the senses or spiritual matters or gifts for those for whom you have romantic intentions.

What’s more important than that though is to avoid making any impulse purchases when the Moon is Void of Course. That happens this weekend starting at 9:57 PM Eastern Time Saturday (6:37 PM Pacific) and it ends at 3:04 AM Eastern (12:04 AM Pacific).

You see? Wasn’t that helpful? And did you notice how I didn’t mention how buying a reading for yourself and your friends and family is a lot more helpful and interesting than getting them a pair of socks or another toaster?

Oh dear. I think I’ve got the virus.
