Venus went from its domicile in Libra ♎ to its detriment in Scorpio ♏ today. We go from indulging in decadence, balancing the scales, taking our previous experience from Venus retrograde this summer & expressing ourselves in new ways, to being more vulnerable, opening up & going deeper with the new relationships we've formed.
Venus is in detriment in Scorpio because Scorpio resembles the energy of Mars more than Venus. Venus wants to provide a nice space for people to exist, where they can love each other & find balance. This provides the person with the ability to choose when they're able & have the confidence to take on outside problems in their life. On the other hand, Mars is a problem solver & understand pain, & trauma. Mars doesn't shy away from the ugliness of life & in fact excels in it. This leads to a depth & magnetism that is exuded when Venus is in Scorpio. The ability to go deeper than the light surface, which is in some ways opposite of how Venus goes about helping normally.
Now is a time for vulnerability, opening up, and allowing the people you trust to truly care for you.
Let's hope for some cloud gaps tomorrow. A geomagnetic storm is predicted and auroras might be visible even further south in Europe.
+1 for the #Astro shoutout from @firstname.lastname@example.org & @email@example.com on @firstname.lastname@example.org 696 around 38:45. I was struggling with the topic of this #podcast for a couple upcoming projects. I took another look at Astro after @email@example.com’s @viteconf talk and have been impressed by its thoughtful design and welcoming community
Figured it was finally time to add some pagination to my blog archive so I got to tinker with #Astro for the first time in a bit.
My feeling is, if anybody for any reason is kind enough to read what I write, I should waste as little of their time as possible. So it's important to me to keep my blog super lightweight, and zero client-side JS is a big component of that.
Der Mond über Berlin am 26.11.2023 - 17:56 Uhr ... bei 150mm Brennweite
Der Vollmond im November 2023 hat auch eine Besonderheit: Er leuchtet quasi drei Nächte am Himmel. Heute = 99%, 27.11.23 = 100%, 28.11.23 = 98%

If you've been feeling extra tired lately, it might be because both the Sun & Mars have been building up to a square with Saturn in Pisces ♓ over the past few days, & it's now hit its peak & is receding.
Mars & the Sun can be thought of as ambitions, with the two of them so close together, the future becomes more clear - the need to go out & get what you want or become who you dream of becoming is at the forefront of your mind. Both of them ingressed from Scorpio ♏ to Sagittarius ♐ in the last few days, which forms a direct square with Saturn.
Saturn reveals the limits of whatever it's interacting with, this being your dreams & your natural drive to get it done. Saturn forces us to second-guess ourselves, & align ourselves with our personal morals & values. With it squaring the Sun & Mars, it might show you the limits of your ambitions, the fears that you have of moving forward without checking yourself. It shows that you can't do everything at once, & it's imperative to have a plan to build up to your dream.
Over the course of Sagittarius ♐ season this second-guessing will recede & open ourselves up to more optimism about the future.
Here are some #workinprogress #wip pics of a #painting that is being made by my friend Muai, check it out, really cosmic stuff here. If anyone is interested in owning this one, let me know, it is just about finished in the second pic below ~ #art #space #science #artwork #telescope #telescopes #artist #artnet #artlover #artlovers #artistsonmastodon #artmarket #artlover #artlovers #astro #astronomy #psychedelic #artgallery #artgalleries #artfinder #artmarket #artforsale #illustration #decor
- installed node js
- started a project with astro and a free template
- made a bunch of icons
- blindly fixed typescript errors
- got everything building and into a github repo
- got a kinsta account (for free hosting)
~3 hours and I have a functioning (and very incomplete) website and a codebase that I should be able to alter and update with minimal fuss. I will edit and probably buy a domain this week. #GameDev #WebDev #Astro #Kinsta #Clueless
Another thing about Mercury and Mercury retrogrades in general - this year, we had Mercury retrograde in earth signs (Capricorn ♑, Taurus ♉, Virgo ♍), meaning people with those placements are usually most affected by them, and develops a general theme for what types of communicative breakdowns are going to happen - significations having to do with earth signs (material stability, practical ideas, etc). This upcoming year will have retrogrades in fire signs instead (Sagittarius ♐, Aries ♈, Leo ♌). This will shift the general theme of Mercury retrogrades to be the significations of fire signs instead. Next year will be water, then air, rinse repeat.
while I'm at it, does anyone know if there is a way to tell VSCodium to use SCSS syntax highlighting for style blocks in astro/svelte/vue? I'm using PostCSS to enable nesting syntax and it's doing a very poor job of tokenizing it as vanilla CSS (which does support nesting now, but whatever)
Mercury retrograde really sneaking up on me, the pre-shadow period in Sagittarius ♐ starts on the 25th!! The pre-shadow period is when Mercury starts slowing down, and it's also the place where Mercury goes back to. For example, the pre-shadow period starts when Mercury is at 22° of Sagittarius ♐. When Mercury retrograde eventually begins, it begins at 8° of Capricorn ♑. Then Mercury will go backwards in the sky, entering Sagittarius again, and going all the way back to 22° of Sagittarius before stationing & eventually moving forward again. When Mercury goes *back* along those degrees it has already visited, it will *re-visit* those subjects again, for better or worse. So pay attention when Mercury starts its pre-shadow period, because Mercury will reveal the themes of the retrograde period during that time.
I think I will abandon this project 😂 got too big and complex in a short of time. I will try out #astro @astro to create a site. Looks basically exactly like the thing I wanted to build, just even bigger.
Will still try to figure out an intuitive, seo-friendly and easy way to include some kind of CMS.
New post: “Astro MDX Components”
Today’s post is sponsored by me not knowing what I’m doing. In other words: fiddling with how my blog is built.
Given Astro is a relatively new framework, I struggled to find solutions to some probably simple things I wanted to do with it.
Hope this helps whoever is creating websites with #Astro, any feedback appreciated.🤗
@jerryD I would go entirely framework-less for little stuff and #WebComponent libraries - it's a great future-proof solution. Add the recent #CustomElements #LSP made for #Neovim, #Intellij or #VSCode into the mix - a cherry on top!
I'm migrating a personal project to Astro as an excuse to learn more about it, so expect another post soon about more of that process!
I'd love to hear if you've used Astro, or are interested in hearing more about it. If there are particular gotchas or questions I can try to keep them in mind as I continue migrating this site over to it.
#node version: 20.9.0 & #npm is 10.1.0. Tried installing #svelte with npm for comparison & got a similar error, so it's a local issue? When using "npm install" to install #11ty it works with no issues.
Could anyone point me to a direction how to fix this? I'm not very familiar with debugging these kind of things...
#Astro: I just spent a few hours to test-drive Tina CMS (https://tina.io) with @astro and I'm really happy with the result.
- Tina is markdown-first; Astro is perfect for markdown
- both support schemas / frontmatter
- Astro's content collection(s) are just the perfect match for this (i.e. editorial vs posts)
- you can self-host Tina, use their cloud and/or run the editor locally
I like working with #astro so far, nice that there is a prettier plugin available. https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=astro-build.astro-vscode
Awesome to use #svelte within astro. 👍 🎉
Just had a weird bug today that auto-formatting removed whole blocks of content haha. Seems like the file content was not really updated, got the older content after formatting in an .astro file 🤔
They're an amazing group that produces multiple podcasts and has even helped NASA missions (obligatory FU Benu). They deserve all the money in the world, but like many others, the economy is hitting them hard.
Please consider helping out, even just by spreading the word.

Speaking of @astro:
I just submitted a talk proposal for #SvelteSummit Fall 2023, and I'd like to share my best practices and good patterns for using #Astro + #Svelte in production.
CfP closes on Sunday, and I bet y'all have great stuff to talk about. So don't hesitate!
In other news, despite an intentional longer break from work in 2023, I’m currently building the 6th @astro client website this year (always with a bit of #Svelte on top). That’s how good #Astro is!
2nd time doing multi-language with Notion as a CMS. Astro content collections are such a bliss https://docs.astro.build/en/guides/content-collections/
