This week we come into the second of three exact conjunctions between Mercury and Saturn, this time while Mercury is moving retrograde. This second time around, Saturn and Mercury are in a beneficial sextile aspect with Mars in Libra, giving us the motivation and willpower necessary to push forward in order to work within the limitations imposed by Saturn. We may feel a bit frustrated or stuck this week, as our projects simply may not take off as planned. With a supportive aspect from Mars in the mix, we’ll be able to get where we need to go one way or another, even if Saturn requires us to take the slower, more tried-and-true route.
Monday (12/4): We’re still riding the wave of the Gemini Supermoon energy until early this afternoon when the Moon goes Void-of-Course from 12:17pm until 1:44pm MST. The lunar energy shifts midday when the Moon moves into the supportive, nurturing and cozy sign of Cancer.
Tuesday (12/5): No major planetary influences. The Moon is transiting the watery, empathic sign of Cancer throughout the day.
Wednesday (12/6): Retrograde Mercury comes into conjunction with Saturn today, but this time the planetary duo is in a supportive sextile with Mars in Libra, giving us a bit of willful momentum to help us to push through the Saturnian sludge. Mercury’s conjunction to Saturn slows down our thoughts and communications and requires us to rethink the structures we’ve created for ourselves over these past 2.5 years, while Saturn has been transiting Sagittarius. Anytime Saturn is involved in a transit, we are required to do things the RIGHT way, not the fast way, so resist the urge to rush! This energy is excellent for slow, diligent mental work and for getting our ducks in a row so that when Mercury moves direct, we are ready to dive right in to make all the right moves!
This transit also highlights the need to wrap things up in the area of our Saturn-in-Sagittarius lessons from the past 2.5 years, as Saturn is preparing to leave the sign of optimism, expansion and integrity on December 21st, 2017.
Thursday (12/7): No major planetary influences. The Moon is moving through the dramatic and playful sign of Leo today, bringing us an extra dose of romance and optimism! ☺
Have a beautiful week! Be sure to check back on Thursday for the weekend forecast! ☺
