New Moon in Sagittarius Thursday night
Mercury Direct in Scorpio on Thursday, Dec. 6th
Venus now Direct in Scorpio
Mars not-so-happy in Pisces
Neptune now Direct in Pisces
We’re in the dark of the Moon, and still under the influence of Venus’s exact opposition to Uranus last Friday. This aspect shakes up relationships, and brings them into a state of balance or implosion. At the same time we are moving forward from a place of greater honesty thanks to Venus’s direct motion in Scorpio. Let go of the past and create a new life for yourself.
Tuesday, December 4 – Moon in Scorpio, close to Venus. We are going DEEP. Avoid social complications and focus on the transformation you’re going through. Excellent time for divination. Mars Magick is not recommended right now since Mars is slogging through Pisces. We are driven towards our inner worlds. Creativity is good.
Wednesday, December 5 – Sun in Sag is squaring Mars and Neptune in Pisces in the early afternoon. It could be challenging to find clear direction today. Intuition is heightened so try to listen to your instincts instead. It’s OK to sit with the unknown today and take it easy. Good evening for a movie. Watch out for indulging to excess with anything.
Thursday, December 6 – Mercury goes stationary direct at 1:22pm Pacific! Things will start moving forward again. It’s a great time to be creative. Writing, communication and exploration of the psychic world is highlighted. New Moon after 11:00pm at 16 Sagittarius begins a new lunar month and refreshed energy. Sagittarians in particular will feel an energetic boost.
Friday, December 7 – Mars conjunct Neptune at 12 Pisces.
From Ronnie Pontiac: “On the negative side this aspect is notorious for floods and other water related disasters. This may be a time of furiously flying rumors and propaganda. A militaristic ideology may rear its ugly head. A flu type contagion or e coli food recall type event could occur. Or another wide spread identity theft. On the individual level this aspect can lead to exhaustion, and exhaustion can lead under its influence to illness. Get extra rest. The urge to over do intoxicants may be very strong. Do not allow anger to run down the rabbit hole of vain imagination. On the positive side this can be a time of effective action that can really help people who need help. Is there somewhere you can help? Creative people, use all this inspiration, don’t worry about perfection, just explore how far your imagination and inspiration can take you.”
The embracing of personal truth is further enhanced by three powerful planets in their rulerships, or home signs. The energies of these planets are fully expressed in these constellations, and effects each of us in a personal and collective way:
Saturn in Capricorn. We are inspired to take solid steps towards achievement. Focus on creating a stable foundation for your ambitions to fully blossom. If you’re 29 or 30, you are going through your Saturn Return. It’s a deep examination of your life; sparking decisions that will steer your path for the next decade. Be practical, reliable and disciplined. Saturn wants you to do the hard work.
Jupiter in Sagittarius. We search for our personal truth and meaning. Adventures and travel abound. We meet lots of new people in lots of new places. We turn towards spiritual and academic pursuits that shift our life perspectives. Our worlds expand, and we become more positive and optimistic. Wherever this falls in your chart will experience a huge boost. Jupiter makes a particular corner of your life much bigger.
Neptune in Pisces. Another spiritual transit. We are blessed to experience Neptune in Pisces because it is extremely rare, and most of the people on this planet don’t live during it’s time. Spiritual strength, healing and intuition are strong now. People can also gravitate towards escapism though, with drugs, alcohol, movies and spending. Be aware of your dependencies. Personal healing through meditation, yoga and body work are great! Try floating.
The North Node of the Moon has been traveling through Cancer for a month and will stay there until early 2020. There is an emphasis on our homes and security. We will explore the nurturing sides of our personalities in the next couple of years, and build deeper emotional connections with the people in our social circle.
From Empowering Astrology:
We’re getting a tug between the signs of Sagittarius and Pisces. Both are Jupiter ruled signs, which means that they help us cultivate a sense of the world. If Sagittarius is the things we know objectively through education and books and teachings, then Pisces is subjective truth. It’s the truth we cultivate within. It’s mysticism and that liminal space between this world and the next.
All of this is to say that there’s a story happening right now between the truth we’re taught versus the truth we feel. With such a strong current of Neptune in the collective — Mars is conjunct Neptune in Pisces all this week, plus Neptune just stationed direct — you may feel like subjective truth is winning out. Or at least you’re feeling a strong urge to rest, reflect, and search for answers within.
Sagittarius and Pisces are just two sides of the same coin. One pushes us out into the world. The other pulls us inward.
