monday december 12th-
at 1:12pm the sun in sagittarius sextiles saturn in aquarius- linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of mastery and integrity. it’s a great time to bee responsible, reign in desires and find freedom through discipline and self mastery. slow steady steps towards your intended goals will bring you the expansion you seek!

tuesday december 13th-
at 2:24pm pluto in capricorn opposes mean black moon lilith in cancer – creating big time tension between the Lord of the Underworld and the Dark Goddess. these two are similar energetically in terms of their depth and interest in what is lying in the shadows- but their oppositions in the signs of Patriarch and Matriarch can bring up all kinds of things in home/family dynamics and patriarchal structures in our lives. pluto/lilith can be about power dynamics, control, shadow coming to Light and HIGHLY emotional. having healthy practices for dealing with emotions is key.
this is activating the triple conjunct of lilith and pallas athena in cancer (11/2, 12/6 and 6/11/23- this last one the conjunction is in leo) with pluto opposing them both. pallas stationed retrograde on 11/30 closely opposite pluto but the actual opposition is not until may 3rd with pluto in aquarius opposing pallas in leo. so from start of november until june next year we have this energy brewing. pay attention to what has been brewing in home/family dynamics, emotions, with mothers/fathers/chilldren and in patriarchal traditions and constructs in the world at large. something is only just getting going and will take until next june to resolve! paying attention to what is up right now gives you insight into what needs to be dealt with and focused on in coming months. add into this the upcoming mercury retrograde who triggers pallas and eris (and pluto/lilith later next year) and we can see that the end of the year has got some powerful energy incoming that can burn bridges OR cut cords. choose wisely.
wednesday december 14th-
at 9:35am mercury in capricorn trines the mean north node in taurus and sextiles the south node in scorpio- linking the conscious mind and intellect with the node of destiny! pay attention to communications, information, insights and revelations incoming right now. a guiding Light is showing you your next step on the path. listen deeply- as the message may be coming from within. this is the first of 3 trines mercury makes due to his upcoming retrograde journey- so pay attention to what is incoming!
the sun in sagittarius squares neptune in pisces at 12:10pm, bringing a hazy energy to the day. at best sun/neptune is mystical, compassionate and creative- but the tense nature of the aspect can make it easy for illusion, deception, confusion and denial. it’s important to be above board and honest- but also make sure others are doing the same. there’s a strong neptune vibe present right now and going into next year. taking off the rose colored glasses to see the Truth about ourselves, others and the world around us is key. the sun triggers the mars/neptune square energy (from 12/8-12/14) so pay attention to where illusion/delusion/denial may be coloring your ability to see/speak/live the Truth!
at 2:55pm venus in capricorn semisquares saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and limitation. venus in capricorn is grounded, committed and masterful- but she can also be holding onto things that are best released and let go of. saturn in aquarius is bringing lessons around who are our friends and tribe and who are not. reality checks about the relationships that support growth and mastery versus the ones that do not are incoming right now.
thursday december 15th-
at 12:21am mercury in capricorn squares retrograde chiron in aries- creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer. mercury/chiron brings up old wounds and pain in communication and thinking. it’s super important to THINK before you speak right now. therapy and any kind of inner work/shadow work can be supportive right now as we delve into the wounding that runs us from the subconscious. communications can get intense so be sure to be kind because everyone you meet is fighting a battle. but also be sure to have clear boundaries and stand up for yourself in healthy ways. it’s all about a balance ;)
the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde eris in aries at 6:58pm, harmoniously aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. sun/eris is great for taking charge and taking action! being willing to see the Truth, speak the Truth and uncover the Truth is key! accessing the firey energy of transformation and change is recommended.
at 10:11pm mercury in capricorn quincunxes retrograde mars in gemini, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the God of War in the sign of mercury! communication can get INTENSE today. when you are speaking make sure you speak from response rather than reactivity or aggression. it’s not a time to repress or over-express- but instead find a balanced place in between. people can be trigger happy- be aware and navigate with care!
the aspect mercury makes to chiron and mars today are the first of 3 due to his upcoming retrograde journey- so pay attention to what is incoming right now as you are getting a head’s up about the winged messenger’s descent incoming on 12/29 and what needs to be addressed.
friday december 16th-
there are no major aspects today
saturday december 17th-
at 4:36am mercury in capricorn trines retrograde uranus in taurus- aligning the lower mind with the Higher Mind in expansive ways! pay attention to the thoughts, ideas, inventions, communications and connections incoming into your life right now. aha moments and bolt out of the blue awarenesses or happenstance meetings are divinely inspired/guided. PAY ATTENTION! (this is the first of 3 trines between mercury and uranus due to mercury’s retrograde station- pay attention to the messages and insights incoming right now!)
the sun in sagittarius sesquiquadrates the mean north node in taurus and sesmisquares the south node in scorpio at 5:18pm- creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the nodes of destiny and karma. the north node in taurus requires stability, presence and embodiment- while the sun in sadge wants to be on the move, traveling, having fun and is non-committal. the south node in scorpio has a lot of shadow and emotions that needs to be addressed that the sun in sadge may be trying to escape dealing with. tuning into what is in the shadows that needs resolution to move froward is key.
at 5:49pm retrograde mars semisquares mean black moon lilith in cancer, creating tension between the God of War in the sign of communication and the fierce Dark Feminine in the sign of emotions. communication and emotions can get trigger happy right now. from today through tomorrow mars triggers the pluto/lilith opposition that was exact earlier this week- so a carry over of that energy is present this weekend. power struggles, emotional reactivity and shadow coming to Light are possible. it’s also possible to get clear about what is behind things that has not been addressed for so long that it has now come to an emotional boiling point. use the energies wisely!
sunday december 18th-
at 12:52am jupiter at 29 pisces opposes ceres as 29 virgo, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. with both bodies at the degree of karmic completion and about to move into new signs (ceres later tonight, jupiter on 12/20) there can be big things up around home, family, health or work matters that need addressing. have we been wearing rose colored glasses? have we been burying our heads in the sand? there can be things coming up that need clarity and discernment right now.
vesta in pisces semisquares retrograde eris in aries at 10:25am, creating tension between the Priestess asteroid Goddess of devotion and focus and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. vesta is able to sacrifice herself for the Greater Good and for those she loves- but eris can reveal where that is being done to a detrimental degree right now. she can also reveal where rose colored glasses need to come off so that reality is being seen and address clearly.
at 3:27pm venus in capricorn trines the mean north node in taurus/sextiles the south node in scorpio, creating a harmonious alignment with the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the nodes of destiny and karma. opportunities to see our past and integrate it, as well as move forward and grow- are present right now. in relationships, career, self worth and self Love- revelations of how to come into the present moment are on offer today!
retrograde mars in gemini sesquiquadrates pluto in capricorn at 5:20pm- creating tension between the lower will and Higher Will in potent ways. mars in gemini is airy, cerebral and on the move! pluto in capricorn is a slow, brewing power that is beneath the surface. this can unfold as a battle of wills as the lower will/ego goes head to head with the Higher Will/Higher Power. watch out for intensity today and ego conflicts. use the power of mars/pluto to transform yourself and steer clear of power/over power/under dynamics while at the same time not backing away from standing up for yourself and the Truth!
at 6:27pm ceres moves out of virgo and into libra- shifting the Great Mother asteroid Goddess from earth to air, yin to yang, service focus to relationship focus. ceres in libra values peace and harmony in relationships and home family situations. this is beautiful in that she is able to compromise and collaborate but the shadow expresses when she sweeps things under the carpet and avoids facing what is going on behind the scenes. ceres in libra will now head to make some intense aspect to chiron, uranus, neptune, pluto and eris. there can be some upheaval and activation playing out in home/family situations and in situations regarding children, parents or siblings- as well as in partnerships, marriages and collaborative relationships. luckily ceres will trine saturn- helping us find what IS solid and ground down into that. navigate the coming months family/relational dynamics with care!
have a blessed week…
