Mercury, the planet of communicating, enters the fierier sign of Sagittarius on Monday, where it remains for about four weeks. After being in the sign of Scorpio for way too long (since October 3), it finally moves itself into a far livelier pattern of thinking. Sagittarius is the sign of exploration, adventure, curiosity, and talking (a lot). This is a very different energy than the pondering thought processes invoked by Scorpio’s influence over the last two months.
Since Mercury is in Sagittarius, which is ruled by fortunate Jupiter, this is a great month in which to envision ideas, share them and cultivate relationships with those who can help you share and promote your vision.
On December 12, Chiron, the comet that has much to do with healing of wounds — both psychological as well as physical, has now gone direct at 1º Aries (a very strong cardinal point in the zodiac). This indicates ideas for such things as: better health, applications for improving health, healthy exercise and exercise programs that involve walking or some sort of aerobics. The Christmas season will be fast upon us and this week offers opportunities to get ahead of the holiday demands.
The Full Moon in Gemini on Wednesday, December 11, livens things up even more. For those who are risk averse, this might be a good week in which to take a chance and cultivate relationships that work with you rather than against you, where each person is fully aware of their part in the joint venture. Friday Mars (energy) is in line with Neptune, offering a flow of information. Do a little more research this weekend with people who have depth, persistence and fortitude.
