Micro-Forecast: December 12 to 18, 2016

The USA chart has Sagittarius on the Ascendant (if you use the Sibley chart — July 4 1776 at 5:10 PM). Since the Sun has now moved out of the country’s 12th house of retreat, withdrawal and review and is now in the country’s first house, it is possible a more optimistic tone is with us. As the week begins we see the Sun and Uranus (the innovator) in a fabulous aspect with each other presenting opportunities for us from friends, associates, or colleagues. The Full Moon on Tuesday December 13 at 22 Gemini 26′ may bring some surprises as this full moon aligns with Saturn.

This suggests that though there are many choices and opportunities presenting themselves this week, that taking the time (Saturn) to pick and choose which are the more appropriate choices is suggested. You can’t do it all and when Uranus is involved in transits you want to do it all. Since the Moon quickly moves to Cancer on Thursday December 15, the choices this week may be about home improvement — or taking some of those holiday dollars and appropriating them towards a less glamorous, but more long term and useful repair or upgrade.
