Venus is the planet of love, affection, attraction and connection. She also rules money and our attitude and relationship with it. During this week Venus transits Saturn and Pluto. Not the most joyous spot for her to visit in the heavens …..nevertheless we can be conscious of this position and take that into consideration with relationship and finances. When Venus conjoins Saturn, there can be a cooling down of affection and expression. Not to worry or take defensively, this is a short transit bringing a more sober and serious attitude. A good time for helping or taking care of shared responsibilities. Saturn also likes to give reality checks and could ask us to pump the brakes on spending during this time.
Venus separates from the Saturnian influence and applies to Pluto on Dec.12th. Pluto intensifies anything that it touches, as Venus just cooled off with Saturn, she now may become extremely focused on a relationship . This day can bring an intensity or misunderstanding in relationships as Pluto is known for it’s transformative properties. Keep a cool head and remember to be patient with yourself and loved ones. Jealousy or defensiveness can be a byproduct of Pluto. Again this transit is short lived.
In the middle of the week we experience a Full Moon in Gemini, also traditionally known as the “Cold Moon” or the “Long Nights Moon”. The air element of the Gemini moon tends to be more outgoing and social, your mind is full of details. Despite the undertone of all the conservatism in the air, this is a good night/day to enjoy company and conversations with friends. Full moons tend to exaggerate or strengthen the mood, perfect for a holiday party or a quick visit. There is plenty going on to debate or discuss on this busy day.
Dec. 12 Jupiter in Capricorn communicates with Uranus in Taurus through a earthy trine aspect helping us avoid getting in a rut with other rigid transits operating at the same time. Jupiter seeks opportunity while Uranus seeks freedom …finding a practical way to work things out differently. Find an outlet to bring more energy to those mundane tasks , could be worth your while. Becoming more conscious of these energies can help navigate these restless urges.
Dec. 13/14 Friday/Saturday A compassionate grand water trine forms. Use this harmonious day to slow down and connect with those closest to us. A healing balm for the past week, we can feel more supportive, accessible and considerate of others. Tap into the focus of Mars in Scorpio paired with the higher expression of love through Neptune in Pisces and the concern of the Moon in Cancer.
The Capricorn influence during December and January is strong so here are some keywords to contemplate…Responsibility, reliability, caution, boundaries, destiny, duty, reasonable, witty, dry humor, frankness, maturity, practicality, determination and reserve. Capricorn archetype is the Father, ruled by Saturn the planet of time. We can use this energy to move forward with discipline, if we decide to listen to our inner task master. This is a time to do the things we really don’t want to do , but need to do. Be patient and take one step at a time and gradually you will get things done in Capricorn style.
