Week of December 11, 2017

We are blessed with very laid-back energy for the final week of Sagittarius Season leading up to the New Moon in Sagittarius late Sunday night. The Sagittarius Sun and Mercury are featured, setting an optimistic tone that pervades the entire week.

On Tuesday, the Sun conjoins retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius and on Friday Mercury will conjoin Venus. Both are great for putting a positive spin on our thoughts and feelings. What we do have to keep in mind is Mercury is retrograde, and that suggests we’ll need to temper expectations. Please avoid promising too much at this time if you can.

A more promising aspect is an inventive trine between the Sagittarius Sun and Uranus in Aries on Saturday. That one can open doors into unexpected vistas and wide-ranging possibilities. However we still may want to hold off committing to any new course of action until the first of the year . . . thanks to Mercury Rx, there are too many unknown variables.

Those of us with a Sun, Moon and/or Ascendant at 29° are probably going to be more aware of Saturn sitting at 29° Sagittarius starting this week and lasting until it moves into Capricorn on December 19. We are more tuned into the necessity of making clean endings which are critical for making a fresh start than most. But everyone has Capricorn somewhere in their natal charts and Saturn is going to be joining Pluto there all too soon, asking us all to do a little housecleaning there.

With the exception of her midweek visit to Scorpio, the Moon will be contributing her bit to keeping spirits bright this week. Monday finds her in peace loving Libra and she makes no major aspects all day. The Libra Moon loves to see everyone getting along which is great for meeting with clients or staff. Monday evening is especially favorable for going out with your significant other with the Libra Moon sextile Venus in Sagittarius.

First thing Tuesday morning the Libra Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn, a reminder we do need to tend to business as well as pleasure. Once that is out of the way, the Libra Moon enjoys hanging out with the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury during the afternoon. The friendly, outgoing vibe is great for getting into the holiday mood. Do your best to stay on task!

Wednesday morning early the Moon moves into more focused Scorpio and she will conjoin Mars midday. This will help bring us back into a more business like place again. Both Wednesday and Thursday are more favorable to tackling projects that need to be completed this week. Remember the New Moon is coming up this weekend and we need to prepare for that.

Friday the Scorpio Moon will be void-of-course until evening when she dashes into fiery Sagittarius for the weekend. This is a good day to stick with our usual Friday routines and clearing our desks before the weekend.

This is about the best weekend this month to get out and play! The Moon is in adventurous Sagittarius all weekend ending with the New Moon in Sagittarius late Sunday night. It really is the last big burst of fire energy this year and we may as well enjoy it while we can. Plan get-togethers with friends to celebrate the holiday season because next weekend is going to be more about family.

There is a liminal feel to this week as Sagittarius Season winds down, Saturn sits at 29° and the pace slows before the New Moon in Sagittarius. Some may feel Saturn finishing its stay in Sagittarius than others, prompting them to finish affairs related to the house Saturn is currently transiting. Many of us might as well relax and enjoy the show for now because everyone needs a break occasionally. 😀
