This weekend we have an intense and powerful conjunction brewing between Mars, the planet of action and willpower, and Jupiter, the planet of expansion, philosophy, adventure and good fortune. In the obsessive sign of Scorpio, we may become fixated on the bigger picture, all the while diving much deeper in order to find the motivation for the right action to take. Saturday will also bring us a very harmonious aspect between Mercury and Uranus, super-charging our minds and bringing flashes of insight and downloads of information to help us find unique solutions to old problems and to motivate us to quickly take action on our plans.

Friday (12/5): No major planetary aspects. The Moon moves into Virgo at 1:12am MST were it will be making a harmonious trine with Saturn in Sagittarius, grounding out our emotions and bringing greater stability. By the end of the day the Moon will come into opposition with Neptune in Pisces, very briefly bringing the potential for emotionally confusing situations as well as deepening our capacity for empathy and compassion. The fog lifts rather quickly as we move into the day on Saturday. In general, the Moon in Virgo is excellent for planning, organizing and taking care of all of the little details that we might otherwise skim over. The Moon in Virgo enjoys analyzing and over-analyzing the subjective experience and there can be a greater tendency toward self-criticism and ruminating on emotionally significant experiences at this time.
Saturday (12/6): Mercury is just a few days away from leaving Sagittarius and moving into Capricorn and the last aspect it will make before changing signs is a beautiful, harmonious trine with Uranus which is now moving forward in the ambitious and headstrong sign of Aries. Mercury rules the “lower,” analytical mind while Uranus rules the “higher” mind and the process of awakening through divine inspiration. Taken together, these energies are ripe with the potential for important flashes of insight, inspiring us to make big, expansive long-term plans and to go about reaching our goals in ways we’ve never thought of before. This is an excellent aspect for communicating new, cutting-edge ideas or for brainstorming with groups. Mercury’s influence in Sagittarius helps us to think in the long-term while Uranus in Aries helps us to quickly take the initiative to make the necessary changes to see things through. The super-charged mental energy brought on by this aspect will be inspiring us to take new, innovative and exciting action for at least a day or two, so be sure to take advantage of the energy while it’s still available.
Mars in Scorpio comes into a super-charged conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio today, expanding on our ability to take focused and decisive action from a deeper place of Truth and understanding. This is an excellent aspect for firing up our willpower and initiating the types of projects that truly feed our souls. Mars is at home in Scorpio, the sign of sex, power, and the deeper Truth that lies below the surface and the end-result of any activity that originates from this energy is anything but shallow. This energy is all about the deeper work and acting from he true source of raw, primal power that lies dormant within each of us. If you’re feeling frustrated or fired-up today, it’s an indication that impulses that have been long-suppressed are ready to come up to the surface to be acted upon. Even if the idea of taking action in this way causes fear, the end result of this action may cause you to feel much more liberated and empowered!
The Moon is still in the service-oriented sign of Virgo throughout the day today, making only harmonious aspects to Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto; however, while projects initiated today may seem like they’re coming along quite well, the last aspect the Moon makes before going Void-of-Course at 7:51pm MST this evening is a square to Mercury, indicating that our minds may get the best of us in the end. Over-thinking things may prove to be our downfall and the projects we’ve initiated might not turn out as planned, especially if there is difficulty connecting with our emotions and trusting our intuition.
Sunday (12/7): No major planetary aspects. The Moon moves into the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra early this morning at 5:15am MST and quickly comes into a sobering square with Saturn in Capricorn. While the day may start out a little on the slow side, maybe due to the emotional burden of certain responsibilities requiring our care, this energy is fleeting and will let up by early afternoon.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! :)
