The Stars This Week: December 12-18, 2011
Make Plans for Your Future

The week begins with industrious Mars squaring the nodal axis on December 12 -- a reminder that all your hard work needs to support your larger life goals. On December 13, Mercury finally turns direct in optimistic Sagittarius, a transit that supports plans for the future. And when Venus squares Saturn on December 18, it's time to evaluate your most important relationships.

December 12: Mars squares the North and South Nodes
Mars in Virgo is conscientious and diligent. Since November 10, you've been working with its practical energy and have hopefully made progress on whatever you've wanted to achieve in that time. The north node in Sagittarius and the south node in Gemini are both asking you to keep the big picture in mind and focus on where you're headed. Don't get lost among information that doesn't help you move forward! This dynamic aspect reminds you to make sure your actions support your goals.

December 13: Mercury turns direct
At last! The final Mercury retrograde period of 2011 is over, and now it's time to make a decision. Problematic communication and misunderstandings are on their way out; clarity makes a welcome return. For the last three weeks since Mercury turned retrograde on November 24, you've been going over the same options and conversations, as this period has asked you to conduct a thorough review of everything before you proceed. Over these next few weeks, you'll be able to act upon the information you've gathered and be able to make fully informed decisions. As the end of 2011 approaches, you should be in excellent shape to plan for the year ahead!

December 18: Venus squares Saturn
Venus in Capricorn is quite practical, values achievement and is interested in building a relationship that lasts. Saturn in Libra, meanwhile, asks you to not only invest in your social life, but also exercise concern for everyone to act fairly toward one another. Still, sometimes the most practical thing to do isn't necessarily the most fair. When Venus and Saturn meet in a square aspect, you're likely to gain clarity about what you want -- and don't want -- out of your relationship.
