Astro-Weather: Week of Dec. 15-21, 2010
Wednesday, Dec. 15—A major energy running through today can be seen as positive for relationships and social activities. Problems can set in where people get carried away, and all manner of overindulgence is easily fallen into. People will once again be proving to themselves that it is indeed possible to get too much of a good thing. The predawn is open. Watch for some hard attitudes in the midmorning and relationship issues in the early to midafternoon. The early through midevening is open, but watch the later evening for spaciness with awareness of the major energy. Moods will improve markedly through the late night and tomorrow’s predawn.
Thursday, Dec. 16—Yesterday’s major energy for relationships and social activities will remain very much with us through today. Reread and apply being mindful of the cautionary tinge to it. Another major energy to be aware of today is deceptively positive. People will tend to feel upbeat, confident and ready to take on the world. The potential downside, as with yesterday’s energy, is that it is very easy to get carried away with. Watch for some people to become too full of themselves and to overreach and get themselves into situations that are over their heads. Be careful with authority, and be very sure you can handle what you get yourself into. Good moods will run strongly through today from the early predawn right on through the late night. Do be aware of and work around the moon void of course period, however, that runs from 5:40 this morning until 12:47 this afternoon when the moon enters Taurus. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more down to earth and concerned with enjoyment. It will likely seem as if the weekend starts when the void of course ends, but most of us will have to get through tomorrow’s workday before it really begins.
Friday, Dec. 17—The high positive energy from yesterday will remain with us through today. Reread and apply making very good use of its positive side but being careful of the potential cautions. Another major energy comes into focus throughout today. This energy is best used in meditation, prayer and other spiritual pursuits. It can, however, be seen as very positively social, and that, of course, is what most will use it for. Today’s predawn starts out continuing yesterday’s good moods. This will likely go south through the morning, however, with scattered minor irritability. Watch for exaggerated emotional reactions, coercive attitudes, relationship issues and erratic emotional reactions, in that order. The afternoon opens up, but watch the early evening for more minor irritability and erratic hard attitudes. The rest of the evening through the late night is open again. Make the right choices, and have fun tonight.
Saturday, Dec. 18—The high energy from yesterday involving spirituality and social activity peaks in today’s predawn and remains very much with us. Reread and apply well. Be aware of four major energies today. The first indicates a general shift in thinking and communication patterns toward a more expansive and open to a wider range of ideas mode. This is Mercury retrograding back into Sagittarius this morning. Big ideas from the past are likely to re-emerge through the rest of the month. This can be good, or not so much, and will need to be taken and examined on a case-by-case basis. Some things from the past should be revisited and perhaps cleaned up and healed. Others should be left there. The second is highly social, and there will be a drive to have fun, but it can easily lead to problems in relationships with erratic and even bizarre behavior. Watch for irrational and unreasonable demands for change, and be ready to go into damage control at a moment’s notice. The third is no help and brings out the crazies, who will be out and about in seemingly much greater numbers than usual. It also brings problems with and for authority, which can be capricious and turn on you at the drop of a hat. The fourth, also no help, sheds light on relationships and social activities, but not in an agreeable way. All of this will add up to the perfect storm for some people. Make the right choices, and don’t be one of them. Minor energies are of very little help, and you will also want to be aware that the moon will be void of course from 3:35 this afternoon until 9:36 tonight when the moon enters Gemini. At that point, the energy will lift very noticeably, and general moods will tend to become more communicative. This will be high-energy social Saturday night, especially once past the void of course, but one to be very careful with.
Sunday, Dec. 19—All of the high energy from yesterday will remain very much with us through today. Reread and apply carefully. Be aware of two more major energies. The first can be very good for looking within and coming to greater self-understanding. Remember that Mercury is still retrograde, and learn from the past. The second can bring problems to relationships, especially where issues from the past pop up for further review. Avoid this if you can, and be sure not to give voice to comparisons between old flames and whom you are now with. As if all of this isn’t enough, the full moon will begin to roll in through the day, and that, of course, will inflate and exaggerate anything going on. Late Saturday-night party scenes will be highly energized into today’s predawn, but will need to be handled carefully. Scattered minor irritability exists here and there through today, and wise choices are indicated throughout.
Monday, Dec. 20—The full moon is exact at 2:12 in tomorrow’s predawn, making today and tomorrow both effectively full-moon day. Remember that full moons are always high energy and deserve to be approached with respect. High energy from yesterday will remain very much with us through today, so reread and apply that carefully. Be aware of two more major energies. The first brings out the crazies, and easily stimulates problems in communication and transportation, especially where electricity and electronic media are involved. The second is related, but much more positive, and is very good for meditation, prayer or any other spiritual activity. This energy can also be taken socially, and that is, of course, what many will do with it. Take a disciplined approach through the predawn. The daytime is open. The evening into the late night is mixed and volatile. Make the right choices.
Tuesday, Dec. 21—Remember that the full moon is exact at 2:12 this morning and that the full-moon period will run through today and tomorrow at least. The full moon, in addition to its own high energy and power, tends to inflate and exaggerate all the other major energies surrounding it. While this one is not as intense or troubling as others we’ve had this year, it deserves respect nonetheless. Reread the past two or three days, and apply. Be aware of three more major energies today. The first is the sun’s entry into the cardinal earth sign Capricorn late this afternoon. This is the winter solstice, and the first third of the winter season begins. During this time, begin to assess your life and think about major projects to begin at the vernal equinox in March. The second stimulates a great deal of activity in the realm of communication and transportation. Watch for people to try to do and say too much with resulting frustration. Things unfinished or poorly done from the past may well pop up to be dealt with. Be sure not to overreach or make promises that will be difficult or impossible to keep. The third is very good for beginnings involving relationships and the arts being taken to more spiritual levels. A short moon void of course period occurs this morning from 2:12 until 3:21 when the moon enters Cancer. At that point, the energy will shift noticeably, and general moods will tend to become somewhat more sensitive, protective and nurturing.
