Saturday December 08, 2018

Excitement seems to fade away today and we are either left with an orderly plan to follow — or a profound sense of distraction and disappointment. The dangers of disappointment — even mild discouragement — is that they may place us on a path of isolation. It is, indeed, more important than ever to avoid standing aloof or detached. If we are feeling disconnected or discouraged, the only satisfying solution is to return to the conversation, even when it seems impossible that others will understand. The profound power of cooperative, collaborative effort is where we find the solution to whatever challenges we face today.



Weekly Summary

DECEMBER 2 - DECEMBER 8

"He loved the people just as much as he feared and detested persons"
— Sinclair Lewis
It Can't Happen Here

The importance of the lessons of the last few months become clear this week under the Sagittarius New Moon (December 6th, 11:20 PM PST 15° Sagittarius) which squares the Mars-Neptune conjunction in Pisces. We need to have a deep understanding of our need for other people even though we may be hypnotized by our grand visions, Big Ideas, or optimistic idealism. We need to find a way to make the necessary connections to others, build alliances and stay open and willing to listen to the grand vision that others are seeing. Venus returns to Scorpio this week, which should help us to soften our tone by discouraging 'arm twisting' and fancy rhetoric in favor of thoughtful discretion and quiet diplomacy. Mercury's station direct in Scorpio also helps us to think more about tactics and less about verbal flourishes and quick decisions. Nonetheless, there are strong temptations, throughout the week, to ignore our need for others and ignore or sidestep the demands that we clearly articulate our grand vision or slow down enough to let others understand what we're offering. The Mars-Neptune conjunction produces powerful energy and inspiration that can help us realize our vision. However, it may also produce extreme disappointment if we aren't able to follow through on our vision with determined, methodical effort. Sagittarius may tempt us to simply rely on our luck to carry us forward — but that is a recipe for dissolute disappointment. In this atmosphere, we need to find ways to bring others along with us, using the new relationship framework that we developed over the past few months in order to work effectively in collaboration with others — not simply 'go it alone', guided only by our grand, idealistic vision.

Venus returns to Scorpio on Sunday, possibly easing the unsteady urgency of the Sun's square to Mars. The Moon joins Venus in Scorpio on Monday which may tend to encourage us to keep our expectations under wraps. However, that may only lead us to inflate those expectations wildly. Martyrdom may result on Tuesday if our quiet attempts to find allies and supporters fall short or fail. We're turning a blind corner and we may not believe we're being treated treated fairly — even though that isn't at all clear yet. Information is quite unreliable on Wednesday as Mercury stations to turn direct. Faith and intuition are important to keeping us on an emotionally even keel. Thursday's New Moon may provide us just enough luck to set us up for failure if we haven't laid the necessary groundwork by building solid alliances with others. Energy and excitement builds on Friday, which can further a belief that 'we're all set' and don't need to worry about working with others. However, by Saturday, energy fades. If we have a solid foundation and a well-ordered plan, we'll have plenty to do. Otherwise, we may spend the day in isolated discouragement and disappointment. The most important thing is to stay willing to keep the conversation going.

Sunday December 09, 2018

Chiron stations to go direct today as Mercury forms a helpful trine, opening up floodgates of powerful, deep communication. There is quality of optimistic trust that helps to maintain our willingness to open up to others on deeper and more heartfelt levels. There may be some danger of naivety — trusting too much. However, there seems to be plenty of potent protection, even if the openness of this atmosphere has us revealing more than we expect. Chiron's station helps us begin to close out a chapter that may have felt quite confusing or difficult to explain. Our inhibitions begin to fall away and we feel less and less concerned about how articulate we are in describing the emotional journey we are on. Chiron returns to Aries on February 18th, 2019, returning our focus to direct self-expression with less emphasis on deep self-reflection.



Weekly Summary

DECEMBER 9 - DECEMBER 15

"Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again"

We begin this week with a potent, emotional watershed as Mercury trines Chiron, which is stationing direct in Pisces. Optimism, trust, and clarity begin to emerge under the waxing Moon following last Thursday's New Moon (11:20 PM PDT 15° Sagittarius). Mercury arrives back in Sagittarius by Wednesday, which increases the momentum of generous optimism, as it heads towards a conjunction with Jupiter. We become more interested in taking in the big picture — the 'Grand Vision' — and avoiding the 'Rabbit Holes' of confusing details that were challenging us while Mercury retrograded back through the early degrees of Sagittarius last month. However, we may begin to recognize that our journey of the the last two months has provided us with important experiences that are helping us to ground our optimism in practical, accessible experience. Certainly, we are still likely to run into some confusing situations under the strong Sagittarius/Pisces squares which offer few tangible guideposts of clarity. Nonetheless, our overall approach seems to be more productively geared towards keeping our focus on the Big Picture and staying out of the weeds and details that would disturb our enjoyment of the broader view that we can enjoy this week. Venus remains in the shadow of her retrograde period (October 5th - November 1th), which points to the continuing need to build (and rebuild) strong connections with those around us within a new and more durable framework. This week's optimism helps to facilitate this process in strikingly productive and lasting ways.

Sunday's watershed of productive communication starts the week off in a trusting and compassionate atmosphere. There is a bit of pressure to cope with on Monday if we become concerned about showing tangible accomplishments rather than simply making meaningful connections and establishing honest dialog. Tuesday is a good day to stay connected with those in our home circle — take a well-day! Mercury makes a triumphant return to Sagittarius on Wednesday, encouraging us to maintain a broad, philosophical perspective. Creativity is grounded by tangible, accessible experience on Thursday. We can enjoy a deepening sense of camaraderie within the optimistic, philosophical atmosphere. We reach the First Quarter, building phase of the lunar cycle. Intuition is especially important when we begin to recognize a few 'flies in the ointment' of our big-picture-optimism. The Moon is VOC much of the day on Saturday and playfulness could get out of hand in the surprisingly sensitive environment.

Monday December 10, 2018

Emotions are more unsteady (or uncomfortable) today than they were yesterday. There are more indications or concerns that we need to make some kind of tangible accomplishment, rather than allow ourselves to wallow in ill-defined sensitivities. We may be inclined to put more pressure on ourselves than we need to and, in response, look for ways to blame others. The way out of this discomfort is likely to be found through admitting our frailties and weaknesses, instead of working hard to try to cover them up. Essentially, this is a Big Picture Day but it's easy to get mired in the details and lose sight of our long range goals.
