December 6: Moon in Aries square Venus in Capricorn


Although the heart is the focus of our attention, the waters are being shaken and stirred by the upcoming square of the sun in Sagittarius to Neptune in Pisces (perfecting on December 8), as well as the current square of the moon to Venus, which we should feel in the western hemisphere this afternoon or early evening.

From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the west coast (6 p.m. to 8 p.m. east), we’ll feel a positive shift as the moon moves to trine the sun in the sign of the Archer. Social support or creativity offers us an outlet, maybe a good opportunity to serve others with mercurial skills.

There’s plenty of opportunity to over-indulge as well, so compassion for ourselves is a good start. Mercury is returning to the degree where he turned stationary on Halloween. It’s a serious time to wrap up some dirty laundry, which will require us to maintain inter-personal and emotional composure as the unexpected games Mercury is playing are activated again so that we may move fully into another phase.
