ASTROLOGY DEC 9 – DEC 16, 2017

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Mars moves out of Libra this week and into Scorpio. Whilst he has been in Libra, you’ve had a long case of the yips, second-guessing yourself in places where you would normally be as clear as a bell. Though Scorpio is an emotional realm, at least it’s not overly heady. Trust your gut.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Mars joins Jupiter in Scorpio. Your emotions start swirling around in ways you haven’t experienced for a very long time. If you get overwhelmed, do something expressive. Sing, dance, run, or paint. Once the overwhelm is gone, you will discover that your newfound sensitivity is a blessing.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Focus is required. With Mercury sitting in Sagittarius and showing no sign of coming out any time soon, you’d best experiment with the gesture of an archer. Bend your legs, pull back the bowstring and focus your sight. This will be your style for a while. Focus all this energy on your work.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
You are at the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. As you go through a fallow patch, so you are taking time to regenerate for your next adventure. It looks a lot like it is your career that is getting a rejig. The best possible rejig would be to know that your real career is a calling.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
There’s a beautiful flow of energy through the fire signs. There’s a unique combination of stability and change in the air. It’s as if you are suddenly able to make large shifts, without being reactive, or upsetting the furniture. If you feel inclined to study, or to travel, sincerely consider it.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22
The Moon will be with you early in the week, Though she is waning, she gives you access to your feelings. As you access your feelings, so you get a better sense of where you are going and why. Though a pragmatist, you are still very keen to be in tune with the laws of nature. Soften.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
Mars departs Libra this week. Mars and Libra aren’t an easy combination. Having him around has added a level of stress and tension to your life, even if it has led to you making some unusually strong decisions. With Mars gone, you can relax back into your more relaxed and easy ways.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
Mars arrives in Scorpio this week. Mars is traditionally one of the planets that rules Scorpio, so he isn’t a complete stranger. He will add intensity and power to your march through the undergrowth. With so much energy at hand, you are right to want to take a moment in solitude to feel it out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Venus, Mercury, Saturn and the Sun, are all in Sagittarius. This is one powerful posse. There is no way your life is dull. Venus is imploring you to give yourself a big treat. Mercury is assailing you to listen to your intelligence. Saturn is offering wisdom; the Sun, pure unadulterated vitality.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your star is rising. You aren’t quite in the big time but you are heading in the appropriate direction. Having Pluto in your midst, is like having a powerful motor purring like a big cat under your hood. Empowerment is magic. To misuse power is a disaster. Get a grip on all your potentiality.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Take all the time you need to explore the notion of education. The root meaning of the word is to ‘draw out’. This is very different from the mistaken notion of ‘filling up till there’s not a cubic millimetre available in one’s cranium’. Place yourself where your talent can be drawn out.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There’s a lot of pressure coming from a variety of planets travelling through Sagittarius. This is odd, because things Sagittarian generally sit very comfortably with you. The intensity of questioning you are receiving, about what is real and true for you could be driving you batty.
