Please note that the aspects below are most relevant when they connect with your natal chart in a meaningful way through a planetary aspect with a house cusp and/or your natal planet(s).
Venus enters Scorpio – (December 02nd – January 06th) – This brings an increased need for emotional depth and meaning in your close relationships. At certain points, you will find that making small talk with others will bore you to tears. In your love life, there is a great desire for more intimacy, closeness, and passion. Beware, however, that you or your partner may create drama in attempt to find more heat and passion and to feel more alive which can create a powerful hot and cold dynamic. In reality, it’s far wiser to align with the old saying, “make love, not war.” Be prepared for possible power struggles in your life at this time. Don’t let anyone steamroll you during this period and, of course, don’t steamroll others.
Sun square Neptune (12-05) – This energy can sap your strength and energy leaving you feeling more drained and lethargic. Unfortunately, this can apply towards your mind as well. Your mind may not be able to process information as quickly as it normally does. You may also have a difficult time keeping to your schedule and/or getting to places on time. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to perhaps give yourself an extra 30 minutes or so to allow you to get ready before you leave. Basically, this energy symbolizes your head being in the clouds. Therefore, this is not a good time to finalize decisions or to have any kind of medical or dental procedure. On a more positive note, it is excellent for meditation.
Mercury goes Direct (12-06) – All of the chaotic hassles and confusion that occurred during this period are finally coming to an end. Now, the daily affairs of your life that have been affected by the retrograde period will iron themselves out and find resolution. You might, however, want to give it a few days for Mercury to fully “wake up” and get back up to speed before you expect everything to go back to normal.
Mars conjunct Neptune (12-07) – This greatly enhances your desire to help others in need and to strive to make the world a better place in some way. Hence, it’s fulfilling now to connect to the inner Christ energy that resides within each of us. This combination of planets does indicate that there is a tendency to think about things on a much more emotional level than normal. Therefore, be careful about making a big decision impulsively. Take your time and think it through first. This energy highly favors those of an artistic nature because it symbolizes turning on the creative faucet of ideas. In particular, dance, music, photography, and spiritual practices such as mediation, yoga, and tai chi are highly productive and rewarding.
