Simple and Direct, Your Astrological Support for the Week Ahead

NEW MOTIVATIONS, NEW THOUGHTS
The week begins with the Moon in direct, dynamic Aries. This will provide you with plenty of energy to take quick action. At 11:04 AM EST, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to the Sun in Sagittarius pushing you forward with ease. As evening approaches a few storm clouds may arise as the Moon forms a difficult square aspect to Pluto. If you find yourself clashing with someone else’s ego, step aside. You do not need to engage in any kind of battle here. Allow the energy to dissipate. As long as you don’t actively engage it, this will be long gone before bedtime.
Mars changes sign today, entering Sagittarius at 4:52 AM EST. Mars is the planet of the warrior, the leader, and the pioneer. Mars gives us the energy to take action and get things done. In Sagittarius, you must allow yourself freedom, it will not work well if you try to tie yourself to a routine. During this time your actions will be motivated by your principles and higher ideals. Set your sights high, move toward exploration and adventure. Freedom and personal ideals are the impetus to action during this time.
At 12:51 PM EST Mercury moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn. Your need for action may be motivated by freedom and authenticity, but your mind steps on a more steady conservative path. What you are thinking about and how your mind processes information takes on a serious role. This is good preparation for Venus’ time retrograde in this area in the coming weeks.

DON’T LEAVE YOURSELF BEHIND
Today’s Taurus Moon moves forward without challenge or difficulty. Focus on creating beauty and opulence in your environment and in your heart. The focus of Taurus is always on the senses. Taurus understands the sensual reverence of walking in the forest, listening to birds sing, the crunch of snow underfoot, and the sound of the wind in the trees.
When the Moon is in Taurus we have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of sensuality, calm, and stability. Create art and fill your house with flowers and beauty.
The Moon makes some challenging aspects while passing through Taurus but they occur past bedtime tonight and in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. You should only run into problems today if you try to rush and leave your calm center behind.

SIMPLICITY AND COMFORT
The Moon remains in pleasure-seeking Taurus throughout the day. The message is clear: do your best to keep life simple today. Don’t engage in activities that bring stress or complications. Simplicity and beauty are the focus of Taurus’s true desire. Taurus asks that we move slowly and pay attention to sensuality and comfort.
During the holiday season, so many of us have accepted that stress and anxiety are just a part of what we must contend with. Imagine how the holiday season could be if you threw that idea out on its ear. Don’t buy it and don’t buy the thought that money and gifts will fulfill your desires or bring you the love and connection you long for.
Taurus is the Fixed Earth sign, steady, stable, grounded, and focused on reality. When the Moon is in Taurus we are asked to slow down, quiet down, and spend time in nature and in stillness.
Consider how much your loved one would appreciate and benefit from a consultation or recorded reading from Astrolore.

VARIETY AND DIVERSITY
The Moon spends a good part of the day still in Taurus. Are you getting a bit tired of all the pleasure-seeking and attempts to stay calm and settled? I have heard it said that Taurus is the only sign that can even bore itself. There is only so much we can stand of focusing on stability before our minds get anxious. Don’t fret, that story ends this afternoon.
At 3:43 PM EST, the Moon gratefully enters the active and curious sign of Gemini where she prepares for the Gemini Full Moon on Saturday night. The Gemini Moon is light-hearted, chatty, and friendly. She can also be anxious, fickle, and restless. The mind is moving quickly looking for variation and diversity.
At 8:56 PM EST, the Gemini Moon forms a challenging opposition to Mars. You may find your mind racing and sleep is the last thing you want to think about. Go outside and look at the growing beautiful orb of the Moon.

JUGGLE IDEAS, STORIES, AND WITTY REPARTEE
As we approach tomorrow’s Full Moon you may be feeling a great deal of anticipation. What are your plans for the days ahead? We are heading into a prime weekend for holiday events and gatherings.
This brings both excitement and anxiety. You will see both etched on the faces of everyone you encounter. With the Moon in Gemini, gathering information settles your emotions and keeps you feeling connected to others.
Make it a point to share and listen to stories, perspectives, and ideas. This is a great day for connecting with friends, talking about a variety of topics, and having fun interactions with new and old friends alike. With the Moon in Gemini, your encounters are easy and friendly. You can quickly juggle ideas, thoughts, stories, and witty repartee.
At 12:58 PM EST, a lovely supportive trine is formed between Saturn and the Moon. This will help to settle any anxiety and allow you to relax into the day.

GEMINI FULL MOON – TELL YOUR STORY
The morning begins with the Gemini Moon forming a challenging square aspect to Neptune at 9:24 AM EST. Your desire to talk and chatter, which is so common with the Gemini Moon will be somewhat subdued. Perhaps you have dreams from last night to share over the breakfast table, or a poem to read to a loved one. Enjoy this dreamy slow energy as it won’t last long.
The Gemini Full Moon builds throughout the day coming into full focus (27 degrees Gemini) at 11:39 PM EST. Adjust the time for your time zone.
The illumination of this Full Moon can be tracked to both the Solar Eclipse on December 10th and all the way back to the Gemini Full Moon on June 10th. Consider what began within you at that time that has grown into a fuller vision and understanding of your life. The Full Moon brings us to a time of illumination, a time of celebration as we reach the pinnacle of the two cycles involved. Think of the Full Moon as the apex of these two cycles, look for what connects them.
Stay up late tonight and talk about all that has occurred in your life over the past 6 months. You will find some important considerations as you open up to what is being shown.
There will be a separate posting on the Full Moon with tips for each sign. Jennie (Hidden Path Astrology) and I will be discussing how this will impact each of you. Please watch and share that video.

RE-EVALUATE YOUR VALUES & INTEGRITY: VENUS RETROGRADE
The planets have been quite active while you were sleeping. By the time you wake the Moon has entered Cancer turning your attention to family and the need for nurturing and comfort. Plan to spend the day making gingerbread houses with your children or grandchildren, or at least cuddling them on the couch. Expressing and absorbing love will be an important component of the next few days.
At 5:36 AM EST, Venus the planet that represents love, relationships, beauty, and resources stations in Capricorn to retrace her steps. Having been our evening star, she goes underground in order to return as our morning star in mid to late January. Venus remains in retrograde motion until January 29th.
While Venus is retrograde we all must re-evaluate our deepest values and integrity. We will learn a great deal and deepen our wisdom as we do this investigation. Knowing the house that holds Capricorn in your chart will help you know how to personally approach this powerful work.
There will be a separate posting on Venus Retrograde with tips for each sign. Jennie (Hidden Path Astrology) and I will be discussing how this will impact each of you. Please watch and share that video. You can find it on YouTube, posted on my website, and on Patreon.

In these weekly reports, I explore the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and give rise to fleeting moods. The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
