Week Ahead – Monday December 11th through Sunday December 17th

  • Posted on December 10, 2017 at 7:30 am
Happy Sunday everyone! We’re really getting some serious winter weather over here. Bundle up and stay warm! Today we have some Mercury/Uranus energy affecting us so some of you may find yourselves overthinking, and some may have a whirlwind of ideas floating around your head. Write those ideas down while you can though because spacey Neptune will be joining these two and can make those sharp ideas dissolve rather quickly. Let’s see what this week has in store for us now.
Monday starts off with an early morning Void of Course Moon that quickly shifts into balancing Libra before mid-morning. The Moon in Libra creates this feeling of harmony and calm. We find we more easily connect with people, compromise is more likely and conflict less so. It’s a time when we find it easier to understand and relate to others. We tend to be polite and diplomatic, and would rather avoid arguments. Creating order is also the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We tend to solve problems through diplomacy, and we are more able to put aside our own emotions in order to achieve the peace we crave. The tendency now is to avoid direct confrontations. Decisions do not come easily. Seeing both sides of any given situation is the main reason for hesitation. Fear of losing others’ approval is another.
Tuesday marks the halfway point of Mercury’s retrograde cycle that began on December 2nd. This means its time to start thinking about future projects and working on those. Just make sure you leave room for any changes or tweaks later on. We also have a conjunction between the Sun and Mercury, where we feel more compelled to communicate; letters, memos, phone calls, texts…messages of all kinds have a stronger impact under this aspect than usual. We may find that we acquire and distribute information quite accurately. Some may choose to take some short trips now to keep themselves, and their minds, busy. However, because of the varied interests we have right now, we may find it hard to rest or find the time to do it
Wednesday brings an afternoon Void of Course Moon that quickly shifts into brooding Scorpio, where emotional charge and sensitivity increases. It’s a time where we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. People tend to become more conscious of self and others and see everything in dark tones with the Moon in Scorpio. It can be a time for healing as we destroy the roots of a disturbance in our life. We crave deeper conversation, and we want to get to the root of issues. Learning what makes people tick is something we can be really drawn to. But be careful that you don’t start pushing buttons or try to force others to confront their own demons. One thing to avoid though is manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspiciousness. We tend to be more drawn towards the darker side of ourselves too under this sign. Done wisely, we can get to the source of issues and create the seeds of new transformation to happen.
Thursday brings us a trine between love planet Venus and the North Lunar Node. Under this transit, our charm, beauty and social graces are more refined and can work to further our career and ambitions by winning the favour of important and influential people. This trine grants us adaptability and adaptation, obligingness, a pleasant and engaging personality. It can focus on the stage of entering into a love-union, the preference for associating oneself with artistic friends, and brings an overall affectionate and warm-hearted vibe our way.
Friday is a good day for talking about any relationship needs due to a conjunction between Mercury and Venus. This is a transit that is marked by receptive awareness, positive social connections, and diplomatic communication. That means having to negotiate any contracts, agreements, or mutual plans will go a lot more smoothly because all parties are focused on mutual balance to achieve an outcome that benefits all. We also have a bit of a challenging square between the Sun and Chiron. When these two planets come together in a challenging position we tend to find our patience and confidence feels a bit strained as we feel a need to break free of chronic constraints. Motivation and self-esteem can drop as well today.
Saturday brings a highly social vibe for the weekend, making it a great time for parties. The Moon will move into Sagittarius in the wee hours of the morning, bringing some peace and stability. The Moon is at her most optimistic and upbeat in Sagittarius. We are motivated by a need to seek the truth, and we are ready to pursue a new vision. We are not interested in details just now. Instead, we focus on the big picture. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. Spontaneity is the key. We may also be inclined toward overdoing and overstating. We don’t want to plan ahead, and prefer to “wing it”. With this is a trine between the Sun and Uranus, which tends to make us feel more open to being spontaneous and just going with the flow with no real plan. And this can be liberating for many.
Sunday brings us a trine between Mercury and the North Lunar Node. This aspect brings us a fresher awareness as well as a better ability to communicate that awareness. It is a beneficial resource which can help us to take a few more steps closer towards our life purpose. Just bear in mind that we also need to take action too. We will need to, at some juncture, take into account what we have observed and do something with this.
