Your horoscope for December 5 to 11, 2013
Thursday/Friday, the stars are lively but smooth-running. Coasting along on your own is fine, but get a few people together or make it a party of two, and a good spark lights quickly. Friday night, we are easily swayed by suggestion, thanks to a Mercury/Neptune aspect. The product, the alcohol, and the hey-babe are seductive.
Saturday afternoon, Mars advances into Libra. Mars typically spends an average of six to seven weeks fuelling a sign. Due to a retrograde cycle in the spring, Mars will extend its visit to this sign—and activate a specific area of your personal chart through July.
Mars in Libra aims to bring relationships up to speed. As the action and assertion planet, Mars takes direction from the aroused and leading edge of desire, from our evolving instincts. At the personal, social, and political levels, Mars in Libra forces us to new evaluations regarding how we participate in relationships and what is reflected back to us when we do. It is an interactive cycle. We are designing and co-creating as we go along.
Mars in Libra turns up the heat on matters pertaining to partnerships, alliances, marriage and contract accords, cooperation, diplomacy, equality, justice, social acceptance, norms, rights, and causes.
Next week dishes up the best the stars have to offer for the whole month, especially on Monday and even more on Tuesday, when Mercury trines Uranus. Spontaneity and risk-taking are divinely timed.
