The Stars This Week: December 2-8, 2013

The Stars This Week: December 2-8, 2013
A Fresh Start!

New beginnings fill this week! Firstly, a new Moon in Sagittarius on December 2 brings optimism and energy as you pursue your goals. Mercury's entrance into Sagittarius on December 4 helps you speak up about the things that matter most to you. Just watch out for Mercury's square to Neptune on December 6, when you shouldn't expect everyone to tell the truth! Finally, invest in your relationships once Mars enters Libra on December 7!

December 2: New Moon in Sagittarius
The symbol for Sagittarius is the half-man / half-horse centaur, who shoots his arrow toward the stars and, once it hits its target, retrieves it to take aim once again. Like this archer, if you can be adaptable as you pursue your goals, you'll do well during a lunar cycle that begins with this new Moon, culminates with a full Moon on December 17, and comes full circle just before the next new Moon arrives in Capricorn on January 1, 2014. Throughout December, make sure you revise your beliefs and worldview to accurately reflect the person you are today -- this is an excellent time to leave your past in the rear view mirror!

December 4: Mercury enters Sagittarius
December 6: Mercury squares Neptune
As the communication planet, Mercury, enters outspoken and enthusiastic Sagittarius, you're ready to tell everyone just what's on your mind! However, be sure to think before you speak during this transit -- this is a time that's infamous for people making statements that are immediately followed by retractions. Also, keep in mind that conversations can become muddy once Mercury encounters imaginative Neptune, when trying to uncover the truth could be like hunting for a needle in a haystack! People have secrets, and you may have a few of your own. Have the conversation you want to have, but just realize that not everything will be revealed quite yet.

December 7: Mars enters Libra
You're about to embark on a relationship journey that will have many twists and turns along the way. Mars will spend an unusually long time in Libra due to its upcoming retrograde period, set to last March 1 - May 20, 2014. Pace yourself and, most importantly, take time to assess your relationships (romantic and otherwise). What's working? What could improve? Try to leave as much room for others as you'd like others to leave for you, for by the time next summer arrives, everyone's nerves will be frayed. In the meantime, can you cut loose destructive relationships and invest in healthier ones? Are you able to listen as well as you speak? If so, it's likely you won't get too pushy about your own agenda. And if you can take a stand when necessary, you'll discover exactly what you're made of. Hopefully you'll pass through this period -- even if you emerge a bit weary on the other side -- knowing you've made good choices that will help you in the long run.
