December opens on the upswing. For the next couple of weeks, Mars in Aquarius will keep the social and political action stirred up. Thursday evening, mission-driven Mars/Jupiter are game to get out to enjoy the local action, talk it up, share a few laughs, and spread good cheer. It’s a more hopeful, optimistic influence. God knows, we could use more of both!
On Friday, Mercury advances into Capricorn. The transit puts more attention toward the duty call and to added pressure, financial restraints, or the short amount of time you have to work with. To the plus, it can help you to get a better handle on things. Effort nets reward. There are bargains to be had. Don’t scrimp on quality, though.
Keeping the pace industrious and lively, Mars is in good shape with Saturn on Saturday and Uranus on Tuesday. It’s the peak weekend of the month for making the most of it before Christmas and Hanukkah. Friday through Sunday is also stage-setting for next week’s U.S. election recount, which coincides with a super full moon in Gemini.
On Wednesday, Venus leaves Capricorn for Aquarius. We’ll notice this as a fresh wind regarding everything to do with socializing, shopping, the holidays, and the political climate.
This first half of the month provides your best window of opportunity. You are wise to aim for a step ahead with your holiday shopping, plans, and extras. On December 19, Mercury turns retrograde, which, as you probably know by now, is not the best transit for shopping or decisions.
