Well this is a week where not very much is happening in terms of astrological transits relatively speaking.

I have updated the New Horoscopes & Current Trends page to make it easier for you to navigate the current astrological trends. As a work in progress the page will be refined further as we head into the future.

Mercury is leaving Scorpio this week and heading forward into Sagittarius on December 12, 2018 at 6:37 pm ET.
  • Mercury will be in Sagittarius until January 4, 2019.

Mercury leaving Scorpio is concerned with deciphering the truth.

Mercury entering Sagittarius on Wednesday indicates a lot more talk, gossip, learning and philosophical consideration surrounding world affairs, culture, race, travel, immigration, laws and an update to all things discussed when Mercury was in Sagittarius a few weeks ago. Discussions could heat up and come on fast and furious in fiery Sagittarius!

Looking ahead, Mercury will meet up with Jupiter in Sagittarius on December 21, 2018 indicating lots of talk in the news about rules and laws are in store for us. Opinion, beliefs and logical assessment of world affairs will get a lot of attention. A shift in mindset is likely to wake up many people to understanding how our global society operates, and how the media plays a major role influencing the minds of millions.

A variety of differences of opinion are certain to be spoken, especially since Uranus is Retrograde in fellow Fire Sign Aries now, indicating personal opinion and identity to be asserted, with free speech and censorship getting lots of attention. We are sure to see a lot of protests with key words, phrases and ideologies affecting people's mindsets and spreading quickly, far and wide in the world.

In your personal life, it is advised to use this time to create a vision for the better life you want. Perhaps it’s time for you to create a vision board to get yourself in order for bigger and better options for your life in 2019.

Venus in Scorpio is in positive sextile relation to Saturn in Capricorn on December 16, 2018 at 9:25 am ET. Though we may see a positive boost in the economy for a spell, it is more likely that the restrictions of finances and how people feel about money matters, how we manifest money and becoming more aware of the underlying structure of the financial system and debt will impact us emotionally. Perhaps it’s time to get right to the heart of the matter.

This can be a good time to figure out financial and business matters, and how to create solutions that bring a positive psychology to you and your coworkers, bosses, and leaders in career matters. Female leadership and power is also indicated during this period.

Weekly Astrology Horoscope Overview for December 3 to 9, 2018.

Mercury Retrograde is now in Scorpio since December 1, 2018 at 6:18 am ET and Venus direct entered Scorpio on December 2, 2018 at 12:00 pm ET.

This brings a lot of attention to commerce, finances, banking, and of course political transformation since Pluto ruler of Scorpio is in Capricorn. Truth, lies, deceit, manipulation and trickery could come out in the open to be cleared away. With Venus in Scorpio along with Mercury in Scorpio financial matters create the biggest shifts. Once Mercury leaves Scorpio, and Venus remains for a few weeks, sexuality is likely to gain more attention. 

Purging negativity out of your life and replacing it with love are strongly signified by these transits.

For more details, I also talked more about Mercury and Venus in Scorpio last week here.

Mercury stations Direct on December 6, 2018 at 4:23 pm ET.

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio connects with the Destiny Point in Cancer and Chiron in Pisces both a couple of times this week before and after going Direct on the 6th, signifying deep emotional changes and the potential for great healing. This is an especially good time to reassess your addictions and create a positive shift for your mind, body and soul. Any secrets that have been pulling you away from living a more enlightened, conscious, holistic lifestyle will do well to be faced and purged from your life this week.

The Sun in Sagittarius at odds with Neptune in Pisces can signify that you may not see the bigger picture clearly now, but it is manifesting. A little more trust in the process and you can burn through the fog. The pressure of not knowing can be the very motivation you need to create a better vision that you may have never considered before. .

Mars connects with Neptune in Pisces as well signifying strong emotional reactions and changes that can lead to greater soul development. Sacrifice is a key word associated with this meeting. Facing and then letting go of anger and resentments are recommended so you can start to take action toward a more enlightened way of life can transform you immensely. It's a great time for artists to access deep emotions that can amplify the creative process.

This is a week of mental and emotional changes that can reach right into your soul. Taking care of your body and making yourself feel comfortable at home can bring healing. Nice long baths and showers can do you wonders. Drain away any negativity and get yourself inspired and motivated to move forward with a better frame of mind and better options for your life.

Happening this week, Paris is Burning.

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio - Weekly Astrology

Weekly Astrology Horoscope Overview for November 26 to December 2, 2018.

I personally think the current astrological themes deserves a big YIKES! Mercury Retrograde heading back into Scorpio can bring up fears deeply rooted in our psyches, but the bright side is that this is our chance to clear out and purge those fears by acknowledging them and clearing them away. It can also be an excellent time to face your addictions and get rid of them. Remove the distractions that are pulling you away from living a better life.

To start off the week The Sun, Mercury and Jupiter connect in Sagittarius.

  • The Sun meets with Jupiter in Sagittarius on Monday, November 26, 2018 at 1:32 am ET.
  • Mercury Retrograde is meeting with the Sun in Sagittarius on November 27, 2018 at 4:14 am ET 
  • Mercury Retrograde will also meet with Jupiter in Sagittarius on November 27, 2018 at 5:27 pm ET.

This will bring emphasis and shine light on all the issues discussed in previous Horoscopes over the past few weeks about Mercury Retrograde, the Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius. Expect some big revelations and lots of awakening and awareness this week on themes I've recently talked about!

Mars in Pisces is also activated this week by connecting with Saturn in Capricorn and the Sun in Sagittarius. Mars is the planet symbolizing energy, drive and ambitions, and war of course, so we can expect heated debates about world affairs, politics in line with the themes discussed in recent horoscopes. The end of the week has the Sun in Sagittarius and Mars in Pisces at odds on November 2, 2018 so we can expect issues and ideas about war to be propagated in the media.

Venus in Libra and Uranus Retrograde in Aries are at odds this week indicating identity issues, relationships and how we relate to other people is in focus. With Uranus Retrograde in Aries, rebellion and protests can intensify and free speech issues could arise. We could see feminity and defining female identity get more attention. Considering current themes with Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury in Retrograde in Sagittarius, the border and migrant issues, nationalism and globalism are in focus as people think more about identity and relationships to a variety of other people and identities.

Mercury Retrograde enters back into Scorpio on December 1, 2018 indicating we are likely to see more talk about the issues seen with Mercury in Scorpio. Add this to Venus direct entering Scorpio again on December 2, 2018 we are likely to see more focus on sexuality and transexualism in December. I think the current controversy and over Celine Dion's new baby clothing line and its occult references fits with the times. The controversy at this time is not surprising at all and the disturbing and dark imagery we see with the clothing line's parent company is in line with what came to the surface when Jupiter was in Scorpio.

With Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio and Venus in Scorpio money, debt, taxes, stocks, the banking industry and the economy are also likely to get much more attention. A lot of people are getting worried over the stock market and economy as is suited to fears Scorpio represents.

There is a lot of activity astrologically speaking this week as seen in the list of transits and aspects below, and with Mercury Retrograde it can be a good time to step away from the television, turn off the bad news and shifting your focus away from anything that you see as negatively impacting your worldview. A fearful mindset can zap your energy. Get rid of the garbage.

There is much conflict and distractions to wade through in the world these days. Purging negativity out of your life is highly recommended now so you can transform your mindset for the better and improve your own psyche. It's also prime time to work on getting rid of addictions.

Chiron in Pisces and the Destiny Point in Cancer connecting positively on December 2, 2018 indicates time at home to heal your body and connect with nourishing, compassionate soul food is recommended. This further indicates a push toward healing yourself of addictions - anything that you repeatedly turn to that distracts you from living a more conscious and empowered life. Instead, replace them with things that make you feel good about yourself.

Be sure to have a look at the previous few horoscopes as the themes relevant to our times will continue to develop and evolve.
