Can you believe the Christmas holidays are almost upon us?
It seems like yesterday; Jacki Smith and I were planning content for our radio show Keep it Magic for 2016. This week we will record our episodes for the final month of the year, December.
The year sure did go by fast, but unsurprisingly, I say that every year.
This weekend we are astrologically greeted with a beneficial aspect between Mars in Aquarius and Saturn in Sagittarius. This aspect is fantastic for getting things accomplished that needs attention to detail, focus, and patience. So, any projects that you need to accomplish before the holidays can be completed now when the combined energies of Mars and Saturn will assist you in getting things done. Mars sextile Saturn will be especially beneficial to the fire (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) and air (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) signs.
In other astrological news, the Moon will move into Aquarius on Saturday afternoon. Aquarius is a social sign that loves groups and acquaintances. This weekend is a great time to go out and socialize or network with others especially on Sunday afternoon when the Moon sextiles the Sun.
Mercury moves out of fiery Sagittarius and into career-oriented Capricorn. It’s time to settle down from the intense astrological energies of the last few months, and focus on building structure and foundation in your life to create a sustainable future. Career matters and obligations will be important during this cycle, and if you are an earth sign, this is a great opportunity for you to shine and perhaps propel yourself to the next level.
Mercury changes signs in the 4th house of the world chart signifying that family matters, our homes, and our need for security may be predominant over the next several weeks as Mercury has an extended stay in the sign of Capricorn since it goes retrograde on December 17th. If you need to finish up projects or any plans that require strategic thinking, the first part of December is the best time to get it done.
In other astrological news, the Moon forms rather intensive aspects to both Uranus and Pluto. Emotionally, you may feel a bit anxious and unsettled as intense feelings come to the surface. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn need to be on guard.
