I was just reading this and wondered if this event is important to the magical community in any way?
Venus joins the moon. Early risers looking eastward at dawn on Thursday, March 27, can catch a pretty pairing between the waning crescent moon and the goddess of love. The two worlds appear less than 4 degrees apart, about the width of your three middle fingers held at arm?s length.
Their proximity in the sky, of course, is just an optical illusion, as the moon is 226,179 miles (364,000 kilometers) from Earth. Venus, meanwhile, sits some 65.2 million miles (105 million kilometers) away.
Later the same day at 2:34 p.m. EDT, the moon reaches its perigee?its closest approach to Earth in its orbit?some 227,238 miles (365,703 kilometers) away.
