The energy this week is going to be a bit challenging as Mars gets tangled up with Pluto and Uranus, but there is a subtle undercurrent going on beneath the scenes. Mars is currently moving through Libra and Venus is now in Scorpio. This is called a mutual reception in astrology and it can amplify energies that are available.
One of the things that I noticed about this energy, is Venus lurks in the background of pretty much every aspect. As I stated last week, Venus in Scorpio seems to work on very deep levels and the dark urges or problem areas of relationship can easily come to the surface at this time. So, do not be surprised if much of the energy this week comes out through your romantic relationships and friendships rather than the physical world. People may act a bit more reactive this week than normal. Also, keep a close watch on your finances (Venus rules money as well) because if you have any financial obsessions, they may become prevalent at this time.
Now, on with your forecast…
Sunday, December 6:
Sun in Sagittarius sextiles Mars in Libra
Mars in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn
The energy today starts off with an easy aspect between the Sun in Sagittarius and Mars in Libra. This is a great time to get things done as your energy levels will be high and you will feel self-assertive and easily get what you need, which is only enhanced further by the Moon in harmonious Libra. Since, this aspect occurs on the weekend, it’s a great day to do any activities that require energy, stamina, or force. It’s also a great time to get some in some extra exercise or do something that requires physical exertion.
During the afternoon, everything changes, as Mars in Libra forms a rather difficult square to Pluto in Capricorn. Relationships may come under fire as this aspect is notorious for power struggles. Mars-Pluto aspects make you feel ambitious and your desire to get what you want is amplified and could lead to problems or altercations with others. Avoid acting in ways that could be considered ruthless because any overt activities will ultimately backfire. Try to avoid conflict with anyone while this aspect is active.
Monday, December 7:
Moon in Scorpio
Although the remnant energy of Mars square Pluto aspect that occurred yesterday will still linger throughout the day, your sensitivity to others will improve as the Moon moves into Scorpio.
Today is a lunar day, meaning the Moon is the only planet that forms any aspects. During the early afternoon, the Moon will conjoin with Venus and later in the evening it makes a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces.
Your emotions may feel in conflict with your desire to get what you want, which can make you feel uneasy in your relationships. It’s necessary to realize that all relationships need to grow and change and sometimes this can involve conflict. This can sometimes feel uncomfortable because of the emotional control that love holds over us. However, the conjunction of the Moon to Venus will help you feel more sensitive emotionally to your partners needs as well. This is a great day to mend fences and show your partner now deeply you care for them. In fact, the trine to Neptune during the evening hours, creates amazing energy for a lovely date night.
Tuesday, December 8:
Sun in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries
It’s a day to get excited because the Sun makes a beautiful aspect to Uranus in Aries. This is an amazing day to gain insight into yourself and those around you, which is amplified by the Moon sextile Pluto. Pluto makes you emotionally sensitive to deeper urges inside of you and when you combine this with the Sun trine Uranus, you may discover insight that has been hidden up till now. This could help you not only accessing your personal desires, but helps you improving your relationships as well.
On a more mundane level, the Sun trine Uranus gives you a boost of energy making you feel restless with traditional routine. It’s a good day to explore new things to do something different. Anything new that you pursue will stimulate your mind and endanger your world view.
Wednesday, December 9:
Mercury in Capricorn
On Wednesday, we have our only sign change of the week as Mercury flies down from the fiery heights of Sagittarius and lands firmly on Capricorn ground. This results in throwing out speculation and sticking to the facts – which might be a blessing for our pocket books in the midst of the holiday season. While Mercury is in Capricorn, it’s last for us to focus on physical life concerns such as work, money, and social accomplishments. It’s a great time to pour yourself into projects and get things completed before the holidays are fully upon us.
Thursday, December 10:
Mars in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries
As Mars opposes Uranus in Aries, we reach our hot spot of the week, which could potentially lead to significant problems if it’s not managed effectively. Mars is the planet that goes out into the world to get what we want and when he is in relationship with Uranus, he can react with equal doses of frustration and reaction. Relationships can come under fire as built up tension rises to the surface and we can feel burdened by responsibilities that stifle our desires. It’s necessary to avoid being reactive under this influence and pay close attention to what you are doing because the chance of an accident is increased at this time.
On a more positive note, Mars oppose Uranus can actually create opportunities to free ourselves from restrictive circumstances. New Opportunities could arise which create a new path or direction for you. Although this could lead to altercations with others, decide which path you wish to follow, and ignore outside criticism. This aspect will enhance your determination, so take advantage of it while you can.
Friday, December 11, 2015:
Venus in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces
New Moon in Sagittarius
After all the difficult Mars energy of the past week, things should continue to simmer down a bit as Venus in Scorpio forms a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces. If you have creative work that needs to be done, today would be the day to do so, as Venus trine Neptune stimulates the imagination and makes you more receptive to creative inspiration. Venus trine Neptune is also great for relationships because you will be more receptive to your partners needs at this time.
During the morning hours, the New Moon will occur in Sagittarius. This is a great time to think outside the box and be adventurous. The New Moon in Sagittarius is a great time to do intention or magical work that involves expanding your life to be bigger than it is now. So, get out your road opener candles and expand your new life the way you want it to be.
Saturday, December 12, 2015:
Moon in Capricorn
Do you have a lot to get accomplished before the holiday? If you do, today is a great day to get on it with the Moon moving into duty oriented Capricorn. In fact, the rest of the weekend before Christmas are less energetically favorable to get things done. The Moon makes several favorable aspects – a conjunction to Mercury and sextiles to Neptune and Venus. You should be able to accomplish whatever you put your mind to with little resistance from others. Further, it’s a great time to reach out to people that are not on your ‘favorite’ people list and clean up your side of the street before the New Year.
See you next week when the planet Mercury takes center stage.
