Friday (12/8): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is Void-of-Course in Leo from 3:44 until 4:12pm MST when it moves into the self-critical and service-oriented sign of Virgo.
Saturday (12/9): Mars moves out of Libra and into its traditional rulership in the sign of Scorpio. Mars LOVES to be in Scorpio, so this is great news for all things ruled by Mars— including action, willpower, sexual expression, and physical activity of any kind. This is a deeply empowering transit and the energy is excellent for intense, focused activity of all kinds! Scorpios will, of course, be feeling this energy the most and may be feeling on edge a bit more so than usual. This energy may also bring up power struggles and intense situations that have been hiding below the surface in order to be resolved in a very physical, tangible way. Whatever the situation is for you personally, decisive action is key to utilizing this transit to its fullest potential.
Sunday (12/10): Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries today, highlighting the on-and-off trine between Saturn and Uranus, which was a major influence throughout all of 2017. This is the 2nd of three passes of this transit, which brings incredible downloads of information and divine inspiration to assist those who are seeking new, more innovative solutions to old problems. This is an excellent time to act on the motivation to re-do something in order to resolve and wrap up any leftover lessons from Saturn’s 2.5-year long transit through the normally jovial and expansive sign of Sagittarius.
Venus in the optimistic and adventurous sign of Sagittarius comes into a difficult square with Neptune in Pisces. Today is a day when the “rose-colored glasses” come on in a major way when it comes to our relationships, material pleasure, and even our own self-worth— so be sure not to jump on any offers or invitations that seem too good to be true! Chances are that, especially under the influence of Mercury retrograde, things are not quite what they seem and we are likely to come into some sort of disappointment later on down the line. Overall, this is an excellent energy for romance, fantasy, and creative pursuits.
Have a beautiful weekend! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! ☺
