From December 23rd to the 31st friends, family, and people in general blow hot and cold. There is great excitement but also anxiety. Be sensitive that this is a high voltage time for most people; become part of the solution and less of the problem.
23rd – Monday – Mercury Semi-sextile Venus – It is a fine skill to express ideals in terms of practical realities. The trick now is to elevate other people’s perceptions so they see new possibilities. We are refining our way of communicating.
24th – Tuesday – Mercury enters Capricorn, Sun Sextile Neptune – A genuine feeling of the sanctity of tradition unites people across many cultures and traditions. In the warmth of the moment the cares of the world can momentarily disappear. Reach out to others with love and understanding; this is the tradition that matters.
25th – Wednesday – Mars Opposite Uranus – Violent outbursts can destroy the fabric of a beautiful day. Release tension in non-confrontive ways and strive to innovate by releasing fear and narrow self interests.
26th – Thursday – Mercury Sextile Neptune, Sun Semi-square Saturn – Although there are stumbling blocks along the way, we can weave our ideals into the pattern of our everyday responsibilities. We meet our obligations head on, and if we are smart, we handle them with grace and joy.
27th – Friday – Mercury Semi-square Saturn – We can re-evaluate our responsibilities. Everything gets easier if we just act to complete our tasks rather than feeling overwhelmed by them. Work done correctly is liberating.
28th – Saturday – Today’s assignment is to complete necessary tasks without feeling oppressed by them. Relaxing and catching some extra sleep is a good thing and should be guilt free. Introspective journaling can be a mechanism for a deeper self analysis.
29th – Sunday – Sun Conjunct Mercury, Mercury Square Uranus – We may feel prompted to share our brilliant insights with anyone and everyone; however, unless people are asking for them our opinions may fall on deaf ears. Worse yet, our enthusiasm may invoke hostility in others. Avoid arguments.
30th – Monday – Sun Square Uranus, Mars Square Pluto – It is a violent day but we don’t have to have it in our own lives. Release tension and allow yourself the satisfaction of knowing that everything you think about doesn’t have to be done right now. Take notes and make some plans but stay close to home and leave exploring for another day.
31st – Tuesday – Mercury Conjunct Pluto, Mercury Square Mars – A violent and disturbed mind makes poor decisions. Acting on impulse can create more problems. As the year ends we need to count our blessings and avoid running into clashes. The whole world is on the edge of a new day. The new age is going through a birth trauma.
