Comments:   The weekend starts with a very early morning square to Saturn, which shouldn? have a strong effect by the time you wake up. The Moon does go void of course for about 10 hours right after, which slows things down. But Mercury makes a harmonious sextile to Jupiter around 8 a.m., making really nice energy for connecting with others. Just before noon, the Moon moves into dreamy Pisces with ethereal energy. The day ends with Mars and the Moon connecting with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces, which will be pleasant and inspirational. New Balance 990
