It’s a Full Moon in Gemini this week on Tuesday. Mercury is in Capricorn and will station retrograde next week very close to Pluto. We are already in the swing of things.
A big focus is on our goals and achievements. It is the end of the year after all, and it’s time to think about how far we’ve come, and start making plans for 2017.
How have your thoughts, words and choices made an impact, brought you further toward your goals, and affected the world around you? How are your thoughts manifesting change in the world?
I talk more about Mercury retrograde at the end of these horoscopes.
On Monday December 12, 2016, the Sun and Uranus are positively connected as this week begins. This is great for a boost of self awareness. A positive shift in personal identity inspires a vision for the future. Learning about ourselves and the world around us can bring out our philosophical side and help us remember our purpose here.
Entrepreneurs will do well to think big about the possibilities. The more you learn the better. Following teachers that you feel an instant connection with is recommended.
The Moon enters Gemini at 7:41 am EST on Monday as well, preparing us for the Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday. It’s time to put your thinking cap on. What do you want your future to look like? It may not be crystal clear what you want, but if you prioritize a future where your heart rules, magic can happen.
On Tuesday, December 13, 2016 it’s a Full Moon in Gemini at 7:05 pm EST.
Thoughts and words have impact. The media in particular plays a big role in the narrative people think about. It’s important to be objective, to look at reality from multiple points of view, rather than just accepting what you are told to believe. A closer look at the exchange of information is in focus.
As those of you that read these horoscopes have noticed, Jupiter in Libra, along with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries, have been instrumental players in our current, larger trends.
Trust, bias and truth are big issues we’re seeing discussed in the media lately. From fake news, to corporate interests, to the looming possibility of increased censorship, it’s important that we take an objective point of view, look at all sides of issues, and look to different sources. If you are plugged into one source of information, most likely you are not getting the whole story. With Mercury in Capricorn now it is even more evident that we need to be more attentive to how corporate interests mold the thoughts and beliefs of the masses.
The Full Moon in Gemini is positively connecting with Jupiter in Libra. This can wake more people up to think bigger, and ask more questions. Debates on issues are healthy. The more you ask, the more you learn.
The Full Moon also stands across the sky from Saturn in Sagittarius, bringing more emphasis to where we are limited in our relationships with others. This puts extra focus on the need to communicate and understand people of all walks of life.
Uranus and the Full Moon are also in harmony on this day. This can emphasize more interest in understanding personal identity. Who you identify as now will play an important role in your future development as we prepare to head into 2017. Uranus is retrograde until December 29, 2016… read more about Uranus retrograde here.
Mercury is the ruler of Gemini. I will talk more about the Full Moon and have a look ahead to Mercury retrograde coming up next week at the end of these horoscopes at the bottom of the page.
On Wednesday, December 14, 2016 the Moon will begin to wane from the Full Moon ever so slightly. As she does she connects with Mars in Aquarius. Our thoughts and actions lead to our future. Every action has a reaction.
Mars is the warrior, and I know most of us do not want war in our present or our future. War is an expression of the ego turned up to its maximum. Our thoughts and behavior have far reaching consequences. When groups of people get together and agree on a direction to move toward there is larger impact.
Our personal lives are a microcosm of what’s possible on a bigger scale. Since we see results most immediately in our own lives with the people we interact with, in your social circle, are your interactions more in line with war or peace? How are you and those you connect with influencing the future.
For a more peaceful and harmonious life it is recommended that you consciously choose to surround yourself with motivated, inspired, thoughtful people that want to use their energy for positive results.
This can be a great time to consider volunteering and putting your efforts towards helping others achieve mutual goals.
If you have insomnia in the early hours, you could come up with some inspiring ideas on how to take action towards a better future. Write them down. Do you have friends that could help make your ideas become reality?
The Moon enters Cancer at 7:08 am EST on Wednesday morning and connects sweetly with Neptune. This is great for self care and home care. This is an excellent time to decorate for the holidays, turn on some festive music and get into the mood of the season. Baking comfort foods is recommended.
On Thursday, December 15, 2016 the Moon connects in difficult aspects with Mercury and Pluto, as well as Jupiter and Uranus. As mentioned Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus are big players these days and this day activates difficult aspects known as a grand square.
We all want to live comfortable, personal lives, but we also have to contend with big players in society. This reminds us of how powerful media, corporations and government bodies are in decisions that do affect our personal lives.
I’ve spoken extensively in these horoscopes for the past few months about the media, and it is no surprise that we are seeing the themes play out strongly. A spotlight on the media is in full swing with fake news being a big topic these days. Just who is really telling us the truth? Who do we trust? Alternative media says corporate mainstream media is fake and full of cover ups with their bigger agendas, while the corporate media says the alternative media is fake. The rest of us have to decide who is telling the truth or not and it’s not so easy to tell.
Do you have bias? Will you gravitate towards believing an idea presented to you because that’s what you want to believe? What more information do you need to make a better judgments about a situation? Do you really know all the details of a story before you make a judgment? Are your opinions based on limited information? Have you looked at both sides of the coin thoroughly, or are you leaning to one side because of a decided bias?
There is so much information being exchanged these days, it can be overwhelming, and deciding what is true and what isn’t, is not so easy.
Jupiter in square to Pluto and Uranus in square to Pluto, trust in politics, authority figures and politicians, corporate interests and media all across the board is challenging people’s faith in the larger systems and structures of our society.
This is a significant time in our lives. Pluto takes about 250 years to transit through the zodiac and currently in Capricorn, transformation in political power, as well as economics, is a big deal.
Perceptions on psychological subjects are changing and receive more attention as well.
How we think and feel about society takes us right into the holiday season. With Mercury here, the majority of people will increasingly be focused in this area of concern. I’ll talk more about this at the end of these horoscopes below.
Friday, December 16, 2016 is a good day to be entertained. The Moon enters Leo at 8:15 am EST in the morning.
It can be a quiet day for some, but if you’re in the mood to enjoy company this can turn out to be a great day for fun. A dinner party, a movie night, a get together, a night of karaoke or singing and dancing will do you well.
Find ways to relieve stress if possible. Sunshine during the day is good for your well being and can uplift your mood.
Humor, laughter, performance and expressing yourself can bring the fun back into life. Go on a date or hang out with friends and enjoy life. Good times can remind you of the meaning of life.
On Saturday December 17, 2016 is great for love. If you’re in a romantic relationship or looking for love, this is a good time to spend time together. Love is in the air.
Personal relationships with attractions from the heart can are highlighted. Entertainment and fun helps bring delight to conversations and self expression.
If you’re the creative type, this can be a great day to share one of your masterpieces, especially if you create in multimedia. Whatever you put hard work toward, today is a great time to feel rewarded and acknowledged. It’s also a good time to use your talents to teach others about a subject of interest. It could be formal, but a casual approach will be more fun.
Being proud of yourself and what you devote time to can give you a big boost of self esteem that takes you forward. Be willing to share your enthusiasm for whatever is unique to you. A delightful approach is best.
On Sunday, December 18, 2016 the Sun and Moon are in harmony. Feeling good about yourself is a trend that lasts the weekend. Self expression is the key to understanding the meaning of life now. Enthusiasm for what’s possible in your future can motivate you to take action and be more authentically you.
The Moon enters Virgo as the day progresses, at 12:52 pm EST. A more serious tone can slowly emerge as you prepare yourself for the week ahead. It’s a good idea to get your schedule and routines in order.
It could be as simple as getting to task with putting up your decorations and preparing food for the week, or it could be more business oriented tasks like getting your paperwork in order.
It’s a great time to focus on your budget and get your money matters organized. If you’re shopping for the holidays attention to details like price checking is recommended. You can read more about shopping tips for the holidays for each sign here.
What’s coming up ahead? Mercury Retrograde.
Well next week the big shift is with Mercury stationing retrograde in Capricorn on Tuesday, December 19th, 2016. The Sun enters Capricorn next week too.
Economic issues will become a larger focus with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn. A shift in your thinking patterns about money matters is in order.
It’s also an important time to rethink your goals and ambitions in life. What are your goals and what goals do you need to change? Are you truly happy with your career?
Mercury stations retrograde close to Pluto in Capricorn signifying transformation of power. What we’re most likely to be thinking more about is the power structures of society including corporations, government, leadership and banking industries.
What’s really interesting is that Mercury stations retrograde on the day of the electorate vote in the US. We all know that a recount has been a big issue. With Mercury retrograde the conversation and disagreements will continue and the media will be full of obsessive chatter.
I thought it was particularly interesting that Mark Zuckerberg has recently revealed he’s interested in entering politics. Well, that could be a conflict of interest for citizens, but perfect for government surveillance, considering Facebook knows just about everything about almost everyone... as if Big Brother wasn’t already slowly becoming a more obvious reality. For some hegemony is a big issue, for others it is easily overlooked or dismissed.
With issues of trust in the media with Jupiter in Libra, and looming talk of censorship, plus Uranus in Aries retrograde putting a focus on individual rights and personal identity, and Pluto in Capricorn putting a big focus on corporate and government authority impacting our lives, transformation in power is becoming more obvious.
Mercury retrograde is also the trickster motif in full swing, so misinformation, and unfortunately even lies, may increase. Backing up your computer is also recommended for safe keeping. Write down your thoughts this week and return to them next week for a different perspective.
More attention on environmental concerns are also in order.
I’ll talk more about Mercury retrograde in next week’s horoscopes.
