Take It Easy
Astral Weather Report, Dec. '10
The month of December starts out on an intense note – especially in the romance department. Taboo issues rise to the surface to stir up trouble between you and the one you love. Instead of running away, face the demons head on as whatever you choose to ignore is bound to come up in your next relationship.
The New Moon on December 5 is the time for planting new seeds and putting goals into motion. If you are looking to break a pattern or quit smoking, this is the time to do it. You will be more efficient than usual starting on December 7, when Mars moves into disciplined Capricorn, helping you get things done in a timely and focused manner.
After December 1, Mercury turns retrograde for the next two and a half weeks. Holiday shoppers beware when purchasing electronic or mechanical items. Consider investing in an extended warranty on any devices you buy. If you can, try to make such purchases during the first week of the month or after the New Year.
On December 18, Mercury backs up into Sagittarius…it’s a great time to revisit old studies, as you are likely to stumble across some key pieces of wisdom that will serve as an important spiritual foundation in the upcoming year.
On December 21, the Sun moves into Capricorn, marking the time of the Winter Solstice. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the shortest day of the year – a time when our energy reserves are lower, and our attention is more introspective. The transit of the Sun through Capricorn encourages everyone to get grounded, set new goals, and start climbing the mountain—a great way to start the New Year. Trust that you will get there – one step at a time.
