STARGAZING — Week of December 4th through December 10th, 2017

Dec 1, 2017 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing

Venus moved into Sagittarius on Friday, Dec. 1st through Sunday, the 24th. This is a highly social energy so get out and meet new and old friends. It isn’t the best commitment energy for romance, but it is a lot of fun.

Mars is also opposite Uranus early Friday morning. That can produce difficulty sleeping but it may also produce a brilliant idea. If so, write it down or it will be gone by morning.

The Moon moves into Gemini on the first weekend in December, so that support short projects, errands and quick conversations. Since Mercury turns retrograde Sat/Sun, give yourself extra time to get where you need to be

The Gemini Full Moon is on Sunday at 12 degrees Gemini. The fire and air elements are particularly strong now, so bring out your passionate ideas. Although this makes for a great combination for early holiday parties, there is a challenge to the Full Moon coming from Neptune. This energy stimulates you to open your creative imagination to new and higher visions, but it can also lose you in unrealistic fantasy thinking. So before you jump into that holiday romance or big business investment, take some time to research it a bit better. Remember, Mercury did just turn retrograde and that means review, revise, research and allow room for adjustment. However, this is a cheerful and fun Super Moon, so emotions are elevated.

The Moon moves into Cancer Monday after lunch until lunchtime on Wednesday. Make a long distance call to a loved one or share a meal with family or those who are in your inner comfort circle.

On Wednesday, Mercury aligns with Saturn, a combination that will dance together into January due to Mercury moving backwards and forwards in its retrograde cycle. This is a time to put your brain to practical use. Find a way to bring your thoughts and ideas into the world, giving them a workable form. There may also be a monkey wrench in your Holiday plans, because you may have to go back and fix some things you thought were already done. Don’t worry, things will be looking up by week’s end. This makes for a lot of conversation midweek.

On Friday Mars moves into deep feeling Scorpio until late January. If you are passionate about what you are doing, you can push through problems like a locomotive train. The Moon is in Virgo on weekend of December 9th and 10th, so get all your errands and practical tasks completed.

Saturday, Mars is in its home sign of Scorpio and brings a high energy harboring passionate desires as well as some complicated emotions that take place within you. Remember, Scorpio has a long memory and is simply not a forgiving energy, so this energy has to be taken seriously and handled carefully. This goes for country and world relationships as well. Keep your eye in the news.

Mercury makes a fiery trine to Uranus on Sunday, the 10th. This energy, although in a double retrograde, brings out strong and unusual talents. Another thing, Venus makes its second square with Neptune this year. This energy can be difficult with love and finances because Neptunian energies can be unrealistic or disorganized.

Bottom line? Although your creative energies are high and active, it will take a lot of focus and hard work to get them off the ground, manifest, and finally get the financial rewards. However, since 2018 represents hard work, structure, and rewards, now is the time to begin.
