ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF DEC 12-18 2022
MON DEC 12
We begin the week with the Moon in Leo, square Uranus, sextile Mars, opposite Saturn and trine Chiron. This can see some curve balls and challenges. The Sun is square Neptune and sextile Saturn all week, which emphasizes opportunities to rise to challenges amidst a lot of looniness or draining influences. Keeping the morale high and the kick drum of your life going even amidst discouragement, distractions, or energy feeling sapped is highlighted here. The Moon in Leo sextile Mars and trine Chiron has courage and self belief in the face of challenges or blockages, but the lunar opposition to Saturn can see a heaviness or delay momentum. There may be some mildly discouraging or confusing energies to contend with, and although it doesn’t halt productivity entirely, it does challenge people to adapt.
TUES DEC 13
The Moon in Leo is void of course this morning at 7:52 AM, seeing the day get off to a reflective start, then a trine to the Sun, opposition to Saturn, sesquisquare to Mercury, and quincunx to Neptune and Pluto are the main aspects of todays show. There’s a resilience of spirit here, and Saturn slowing things down only seems to concentrate and pinpoint energy even more effectively. As we get into the later evening, and the Moon inches closer to Virgo, building a trine to Venus, opportunities to network, smooth things over, and make them run more efficiently are highlighted. The Virgo lunation (Moon enters Virgo at 12:45 AM PST on Wed Dec 14) can see productive or helpful conversations, introductions, alliances, or good news. This can be professional in nature for some, but it can equally be social or interpersonal.
WED DEC 14
The Moon enters Virgo at 12:45 AM PST, seeing a lovely trine to both Venus and Mercury, and as the day wears on, a square to Mars in Gemini. This can see a lot of energy and motivation, and even if there’s nervous energy or irritability, there’s a lot of harmonizing energy available that smoothes things over. The Sun/Neptune square is a bit hazy, loopy, and imaginative, but the stabilizing earth trines can help keep a sense of realism. There can be a strong drive to understand the reality of certain situations. There can be a focus on harmonious cooperation, quality control, eliminating unnecessary elements, and creating more efficiency, to set a higher bar of quality and integrity going forward. Of course, Mercury will backtrack in Capricorn, seeing a lot of reevaluations and making sure all the kinks are worked out. The Moon goes on to trine Uranus later on, seeing some surprises and an innovative and progressive atmosphere. Today’s maths highlight productive conversations and helpful alliances.
THURS DEC 15
The Moon in Virgo is square Mars Rx, trine Mercury and Uranus and opposite Neptune early on, which can see a desire to eliminate fuckery and confusion, or to innovate around whatever is dissolving. There may be a need to confront simmering tensions or buried grievances, or there can be some interesting personal discoveries. There may be some nervousness around unknowns that makes it important to stay in touch with reality. The Moon goes on to oppose Jupiter and trine Pluto as well, which can open the floodgates or see some surprising reveals, insights, or shifts in perspective that can be grounding or helpful. The Moon opposite Neptune and trine Pluto can see a strong draw to unusual people, interests or situations, while a sextile to Pallas suggests a strategic approach. An element of mystery of intrigue can be highlighted, and the Moon squaring the Sun can see an inner conflict around how to act or assert oneself in certain situations, or confusion around whether or not we’re assessing things correctly or are on the right path. Reaching out for guidance or getting someone else’s perspective can be helpful.
FRI DEC 16
The first portion of today see’s the waning quarter Moon in Virgo, then the Moon enters cooperative Libra at 11:49 AM PST. The idea of partnerships can be percolating, but with the Moon still opposing Jupiter, trine Pluto, and sesquisquare Uranus, there can be high expectations (perhaps unrealistic), and doubts around others intentions that can reinforce an independent mindset. The lunar trine (out of sign) to Pluto early on is all or nothing, while the opposition to Jupiter has an idyllic fantasy that seems too good to be true. Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus is utterly realistic and focused on illuminating facts and figures, rapidly adjusting to who and what can withstand the shit tests. Tomorrow see’s more dynamic initiative socially or interpersonally, but it looks important to know where to draw a line in order to not be derailed or taken off track.
SAT DEC 17
The Moon in Libra is square Mercury and Venus, while trine Mars Rx and Saturn, and opposite Chiron. Social or interpersonal tensions (either positive, negative or neutral) can catalyze or inspire action today or even spur us on towards our goals or ambitions. The lunar trine to Mars is assertive, but the squares to both Mercury and Venus can see some indecision or a need to find a compromise between conflicting needs. The lunar opposition to Chiron can see some sensitivity or vulnerability, or a feeling of being misunderstood, but it also has the capacity to exhibit it’s energy by bringing out the ability to understand or help others. An awkward lunar quincunx to the North Node highlights lessons that have been learned the hard way, either because of the potential of this repeating itself, or due to a memory evoked that steers us clear of repeating mistakes. In either case, the Moon trine Mars is confident, talkative and sociable early on, but the lunar trine to Saturn gains the upper hand as the day wears on, and confidently draws lines and boundaries to focus energy more succinctly or keep things from getting out of hand.
SUN DEC 18
The Moon in Libra is sextile the Sun in Sagittarius while trine Saturn and square Pluto. This can see tunnel vision on a goal, and it can feel good to cultivate a sense of consistency or congruency. A lunar square to Pallas suggests that there’s a bit of a long game to whatever this is. A lunar sesquisquare to Mars and quincunx to Jupiter can make it easy to over do things, and there can be an almost obsessive zeal around something. The lunar square to Pluto can see some underlying intensity around relationships, socially, interpersonally, or otherwise. Keeping a sense of proportion intact along with healthy boundaries can be helpful. The Moon enters intense Scorpio at 7:31 PM PST, which can see next week get off to an interesting and surprising start. Monday can see people acting out of character or there can even be some pleasant surprises.
