The Stars This Week: December 10-16, 2012
Move out of Your Comfort Zone!

The planets bring a special message this week: Leave the past behind, expand your horizons and get yourself out of your comfort zone! First, communication planet Mercury enters enthusiastic Sagittarius on December 10 before squaring dreamy Neptune on December 11, when you'll have lots of inspiring ideas! Then, a new Moon in Sagittarius on December 13 offers extra inspiration to create new goals. Revolutionary Uranus turns direct on December 13, strengthening your desire for independence and freedom. And finally, love planet Venus enters Sagittarius on December 15, a transit that asks you to leave some space in your most important relationships.

December 10: Mercury enters Sagittarius
December 11: Mercury squares Neptune
Is honesty always the best policy? You'll want to think twice -- or even three times -- before speaking up as ever-communicative Mercury travels though outspokenly honest Sagittarius! Don't let your enthusiasm make you insensitive to people's feelings. Neptune adds a spiritual dimension to your ideas but can also cloud issues, so check your sources to make sure your information is accurate before you use it.

December 13: New Moon in Sagittarius
Do you know what you want out of life? Are you taking steps to further your goals? This optimistic Sagittarius Moon brings inspiration (and power!) to your plans. The symbol for Sagittarius is a centaur shooting his arrow up to the stars; when the arrow falls to earth, he retrieves it to once again take aim. Use this new Moon's cycle to create something incredible and lasting. Don't worry about the details right now -- it's the activity itself that will help you gain clarity about your future. Put extra energy and intention toward something you want to see grow or become more important in your life. The power of the new Moon phase is in effect until the full Moon on December 28.

December 13: Uranus turns direct
Uranus turned retrograde on July 13 of this year, when events disrupted your normal routines and awoke you to situations you didn't know enough about. Hopefully you used your newfound awareness to make changes that could benefit you. Now you get another wake-up call! This time, however, events relate to what you've been experiencing throughout these last five months. Freedom and independence are in the air, so if you're flexible, you'll encounter wonderful opportunities and experiences. Don't resist the changes occurring all around you!

December 15: Venus enters Sagittarius
What is love? Can you be free and close at the same time? Each year as love planet Venus enters this emphatically independent sign, you have an opportunity to create some breathing room in your most important relationships. For those already committed, this is a wonderful time to travel or simply try something new. Are you single and looking for your soul mate? You're going to have to get out of the house! Sign up for a foreign language class, join a local hiking group or get involved with groups or causes that spark your passion.
