Happy Sunday and Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are all ready for Santa’s arrival tonight and the festivities that come with the holiday. Christmas Eve has the Moon in the gentle sign of Pisces, which is a really great energy for spiritual activities. This week will wrap up the year as we ring out the old and ring in the new next Sunday. Now, let’s see what this week has in store for us!
Monday, Christmas Day, sees the love and money planet, Venus, moving into the more practical sign of Capricorn, where she will be until mid-January. This means that Venus will be able to bring her grounded side to the fore. Where both relationships and resources are concerned, now is the time to look at our commitments and make some new plans. We need to consider what is working and what is not and then take steps to change things or balance them out a bit more.  If your relationships have been a bit on the unbalanced and stormy side, this transit will help to bring a bit more stability now. Venus also makes a conjunction with Saturn today, both of which are in Capricorn. This transit blends structure and responsibility with our desire for beauty, pleasure, and material abundance. We may find, under this transit, that we are attracted to people with maturity, worldly wisdom, and a solid sense of values (perhaps an advisor, elder, or teacher), and are disinclined to frivolous activities or wasting our time. We become restrained and careful about spending money during this transit and that’s as it should be, after all the spending we have probably done in the runup to Christmas.
Tuesday sees the Moon begin is shift from dreamy Pisces into fiery Aries. Some may actually feel this shift more than others. An Aries Moon tends to bring conflict more than most times, with emotional tensions growing, people becoming short-tempered and impulsive. Some may show a readiness and fearlessness to act in an extreme situation. Even the sweetest tempered person can become a bit mean under this moon. However, it becomes easier to shake old problem and the weight of tiresome responsibility. We want to free ourselves from everything that bothers us and makes our lives feel uneasy.
Wednesday is a good day for putting some practical effort into your goals and dreams today due to warrior planet Mars interacting with visionary Neptune. Under this transit, our sensuality, creativity and sense of community spirit are stimulated. We may enjoy a strong magnetic attractiveness and sultry charm which makes this an ideal time for passionate romances. Sexual encounters at this time an be strongly compassionate, tender and spiritual in nature. For those who are dating, you are likely to attract a less aggressive, more spiritually inclined partner. We also still have that energizing Aries Moon making us want to be active. Get out for a walk if you can.
Thursday morning sees the Moon move into earthy Taurus, where we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. There is also this tendency for our thoughts and reactions to slow down, making us feel a bit slow in getting ourselves going. This is the best time for taking care of the home, running errands, restocking supplies and tending to routine maintenance. Its best to hold off on important business now, as well as the signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed down reaction and thinking process. It’s a good day for purchasing durable goods as well.
Friday brings us a Mercury/North Lunar Node trine, an aspect that 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.
Saturday morning begins with the Moon moving into Gemini, which is a great energy for running those errands or sending out correspondence, like thank you cards. Under Gemini’s influence, our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and share ideas. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle. It is a good time, however, to be on the move, travelling short distances in order to fulfil that need for new impressions, and meeting up with friends and relative.
Sunday is New Year’s Eve, and the year will be ending with the Moon still in Gemini, which means a lot of talk. Since Gemini usually prefers to do things in short and quick burst, it may mean short parties or moving from one party or person to the next.
Enjoy your Yuletide celebrations!
