Monday, DECEMBER 13
The Moon spends another day in bold Aries. Both Mars and Mercury change signs and then form a semi-sextile. First, Mars moves into Sagittarius for a stay until January 24th. During this transit, our actions are heavily motivated by our ideals. We are bothered by routine, quickly becoming restless if we feel confined. We have a stronger love of adventure and conquest–this is the position of wanderlust. We start projects or challenges with enthusiasm, although we may abandon them quickly if they fail to hold our interest, perhaps if we’ve set our sights too high! Mars in Sagittarius defends its principles and sometimes takes it personally when others disagree.
On the other hand, Mercury leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn today, where it will transit until January 2nd. Our thinking is systematic, and our focus is sober and practical while Mercury transits Capricorn. It’s easier to concentrate on the task at hand under this influence. Our conversations may be quite realistic or focused on business/practical matters. Our thought patterns and communication styles are more logical, orderly, and organized. We’re especially skilled at sorting out what is relevant and essential. Realism more often enters the picture, our speech is no-nonsense, and precision becomes most valuable to us. We should be wary of becoming too rigid in our thinking and coming across as cold or harsh during this cycle.
The difference between these two planetary influences is more pronounced today with the semi-sextile between Mercury and Mars. We either feel undecided or feel a need to rush decisions. We may not have an easy time putting our ideas into action just for now.
The void Moon occurs from 9:52 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Jupiter), until the Moon enters Taurus tomorrow, Tuesday, December 14th, at 3:11 AM EST.
