not sure I read this in the almanac, but no wonder I feel lousy today:
Dec. 21 will be the worst day of 2017, astrologers say
This year, the winter solstice will take place on Thursday, Dec. 21 for the Northern Hemisphere Time
The winter solstice ? also known as Yule, Midwinter, the Shortest Day of the Year and the Longest Night ? occurs at 11:28 a.m. ET Thursday.
But this short, little day with the great many names also may be the worst day of the year, according to astrologers. The reason? Saturn.
Apparently, the sun will appear to pass in front of the constellation Capricorn hours after Saturn does likewise. This will cause both of these orbs to line up for the first time time since 1664, according to London astrologer Neil Spencer, who writes for The (London) Observer
but first wrote about the alignment on his blog
He insists that starting something new on this day is ?ill advised? and will have long-term consequences. And anything you try to do Thursday will be more difficult than usual, take more time and be more frustrating.
