Cosmic Weather Forecast Friday-Sunday December 9-11

December 8, 2016

This weekend is filed with much planetary activity, including Solar contacts with heavyweights Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus, which will help energize our will to be active, creative, and inspired, even wanting to accomplish something in the present and the future.

Of course getting our day going is the Moon’s short but continued placement in outgoing Aries. In fact, from sunrise to mid morning, a harmonious interaction between the Sun and Moon helps inspire us to be optimistic and energized. In addition, lunar contacts with Jupiter and Saturn later in the AM can make us feel both expansive and practical a the same time. Early afternoon finds Uranus and the Aries Moon in the same place in the Zodiac, which could stimulate our need for independence, or wanting to do something different. Yet this combination may also cause us to be impulsive or impatient, so be alert to this. Finally, around sundown Mars energizes the Aries Moon, giving us a sense of confidence and renewed energy as we start our evening and meet up with friends.

Yet what is most meaningful today is a productive interaction between the Sagittarius Sun and Jupiter, the ruler of the sign of the Archer, currently in harmony seeking Libra. A sense of optimism and generosity could be how you engage your day. A feeling of abundance, luck, even good fortune, may also be how you approach life, as well as how you interact with others.

Interestingly, what is also influencing our Solar Orb later today and into Saturday is Saturn and the Sun combining their energies. A serious tone, a strong sense of responsibility, and being realistic about what is on your shoulders, could certainly assume center stage.

What is quite useful during this time is a interaction between mental Mercury and imaginative Neptune. This gives both our thought processes and the spoken word a combination of practicality and intuition, helping us to further take advantage of the varied influence of Jupiter and Saturn upon the Sun.

The Moon’s entrance into Earthy Taurus a couple of hours before sunrise helps get us grounded and patient as we move into Saturday. This Lunar placement can also help us be more practical as to how we spend our money on this December weekend. Oddly, what may put a damper on our day, perhaps even have us feeling a little discouraged in some fashion, is an interaction between sociable Venus and the limiting energy of Saturn, quite the contrast from the more fiery, upbeat energy of Friday.

Sunday gets off to a good start, as a flowing interaction between the Moon and Pluto as the Sun is rising helps strengthen our emotions and how we share our feelings with others.

Yet the highlight of our Sunday, and even into Monday, is a strong, energizing connection between the Sun and Uranus. With the freedom loving signs Sagittarius and Aries in the mix, we can easily be inspired to be creative, confident, open to progressive ideals, and taking action on them. A strong sense of self, even acknowledging any leadership role you may need to take in your life, is possible at this time as well.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Thursday December 8

December 8, 2016

No doubt in preparation for a very busy weekend in the cosmos, today is a rather quiet day for the planets. In fact, the only happening of any consequence is the Moon’s passage from the idealistic, imaginative Water sign Pisces into the energetic, action oriented Fire sign Aries just after 2:15 this morning. So during the next two days, especially Friday, taking the initiative and asserting oneself, approaching life and your involvement in it with a sense of enthusiasm, is a very good use of Lunar Aries energy. Making sure to avoid being pushy or short tempered, and being thoughtful of others, will help assure a productive outcome in your daily routine in the next 48 hours.

One very important cosmic influence it would be timely to mention at this moment is the now forming, harmonious contact between Jupiter and Saturn, the planets of growth, maturity, and social responsibility.

In the weeks ahead, including into January, 2017, the energy of the two largest planets in our solar system will become more influential in life on planet Earth. Finding a balance between Jupiter optimism and expansion, and Saturn structure, discipline and responsibility, will help bring success. This is true both in your own life and personal affairs, as well as how you contribute at the job, and in your local community. It’s quite possible that whatever you choose to initiate at this time that combines patience and careful planning with a positive, forward looking attitude, and that comes from the heart, will ultimately bring a fruitful outcome.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Wednesday December 7

December 7, 2016

Today finds the Moon spending the entire day in the creative, idealistic, impressionable Water sign Pisces. A contact between Luna and Saturn around sun up could find early risers feeling a bit more serious than usual.  However, with the Moon making no further planetary connections during the day, we could therefore find ourselves a bit more in touch with our feelings and emotions, as well as those of others, on our Wednesday. Or perhaps we may find ourselves drifting in and out of our imagination, as in wishing to take a walk by the ocean while working at the job.

In addition, just before 7AM, sociable Venus enters into the intellectual, friendship oriented sign Aquarius, where she’ll remain through year’s end and into January, 2017. As a result, a wish for peace and harmony for all peoples, a connection with humanitarian ideals, expressing friendship and encouraging a sense of community, are just some of what we can expect to aspire to during the Holiday season and into the New Year.

An added note: It was 75 years ago today that the attack on Pearl Harbor took place, and our nation’s entry into World War II. With the Lunar and Venus placements mentioned above, reflecting on not just the loss of life that day, but the sacrifice of so many during the War to preserve the Freedoms our nation stood for, would be appropriate at this time. In addition, realistically reflecting on how those very Freedoms are being challenged, and affecting so many peoples in our country today, would be an ideal use of the Moon in Pisces and Aquarian Venus.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Monday-Tuesday December 5-6

December 5, 2016

Monday is a mostly quiet day in the solar system, with no major planetary contacts taking place. With the Moon still in the independent sign Aquarius until after sundown this evening, a friendly, open minded attitude with a concern for others will likely describe our day. Once the Moon moves into the peace loving sign Pisces just after 8:30, we could easily have a mediative, reflective attitude as the evening comes to a close.

Yet what most stands out from late Monday through Wednesday is an interaction between Mars, the ruler of Aries, currently in Aquarius, and Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, presently in the sign Aires. This combination of factors can encourage us to take the initiative, either physically or intellectually, or both. Doing something quite different from the norm, either in a group or on your own, is possible as well. Yet it’s also the case we could act impulsively, even be a risk taker.

Combine these factors with the Pisces Moon, and you could either be idealistic, impractical, or both. Whatever happens, be patient, keep your actions within reason, and drive carefully.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Friday-Sunday December 2-4

December 5, 2016

While Friday begins within the Moon still in the serious and reserved sign Capricorn, deep feelings could take place as well, as Luna crosses over Pluto as the Sun rises in the east. In addition, an interaction between loving Venus and idealistic Neptune could heighten our sense of romance in relationships. However, it could also be that we may not see circumstances clearly, and let our fantasy world overtake reality. Yet Venus/Neptune also presents the opportunity to use our creative imagination and sense of beauty in any artistic endeavor, or encourages us to have a greater appreciation of the natural world. Then a bit later in the AM an interaction between the Moon and expansive Jupiter will create an upbeat, feel good attitude that will likely accentuate the positive. Just don't overdo the good feelings.

Early afternoon finds Mercury moving into the disciplined, “nose to the grindstone” sign Capricorn. With Luna already there as well, Capricorn Mercury is just the ticket to apply ourselves mentally to the task at hand to wind down our work week.

Fortunately the energy of assertive Mars continues to highlight the beginning of our December. You might recall yesterdays very positive and enthusiastic interaction between Mars and Jupiter. Well, as our Friday progresses, and we move into Saturday, Mars now joins forces with the structured, organized nature of Saturn. If you need to apply yourself to a project with discipline, focus, and a can-do attitude, this is the time to do so.

And while Saturday begins with the Moon still in serious minded Capricorn, Luna’s passage into friendly, intellectual Aquarius just before Noon will help us to be more free and open with others. So whether it’s holding the door open for someone at the store, asking a stranger how their day is going, or engaging others in thoughtful conversation, this is the natural way of being in the world as the Moon passes through the sign of the Water Bearer.

Sunday gives us a natural high around the noon hour and into early afternoon, as the Sagittarius Sun and Aquarius Moon harmoniously interact with one another. Once again, an attitude of friendliness, optimism, and doing good for others, helps uplift our day. We may even feel a sense of adventure, and wanting to do something different, with friends, or on our own.

Finally, late Sunday evening brings a pleasant contact between the Moon and Jupiter, giving us a sense of faith, optimism, and hopefulness toward life as we rest our head upon the pillow, a great way to both end our weekend, and anticipate the week ahead.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Thursday December 1

November 30, 2016

Our day begins with the Moon in the cautious Earth sign Capricorn, having entered the sign of the Sea Goat shortly after midnight. Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn energy can cause us to be serious and emotionally reserved, focused on duties and obligations, as well as working hard at some task. At its best, this can be a day of patiently working toward a goal, and feeling a sense of accomplishment.

And while this combination of factors doesn’t necessarily appear to be much fun, we have the best antidote for this situation - a very upbeat interaction between action oriented Mars and optimistic Jupiter.  With these two Fire planets in intellectual Air signs Aquarius and Libra, the day is right for being active in both body and mind, taking the initiative, and feeling positive and hopeful. You could talk about, or act upon, your impulse toward humanitarian ideals, do good for others, even feel a sense of independence while pleasantly enjoying the company of friends and acquaintances.  If nothing else, just getting out and enjoying life can be part of your Thursday.

Combined with the Moon in Capricorn energy just mentioned, Mars and Jupiter can enthusiastically lead us toward accomplishing some personal goal, or broadening our horizons toward some future goal that ideally leads to a greater sense of harmony on the planet.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Wednesday November 30

November 29, 2016

 

Following up on yesterday’s New Moon in Sagittarius, Luna continues her brief journey through the optimistic, open minded sign of the Archer. Her flowing contact with the freedom loving planet Uranus around sunrise can have us feeling lively and spontaneous to begin our day. Then this evening, the Moon and Mercury combine their energies, encouraging an alert and active mind, heightened intuition, and the opportunity to enjoy meaningful and broadminded communication with others.

Yet by far the most influential cosmic occurrence on our Wednesday is a challenging interaction between the Sun and Neptune. As a result, it’s possible a touch of fatigue or spaciness could occur today, or you might feel a bit discouraged or lacking in confidence. This is not a good day to take on the world, especially as your ambitions may not be rooted in reality. Deceiving yourself or being deceived by others could occur as well.

At best, use your high ideals to be sensitive and empathetic toward others.  Appreciate the beauty around you, and explore the realms of creativity, imagination, even fantasy. Daydreaming about a better world where humanity is striving to do its best to live in harmony would work well today.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Tuesday November 29

November 29, 2016

The highlight of our Tuesday is is the New Moon in optimistic Sagittarius shortly before sunrise. A New Moon is as it sounds, an opportunity for new beginnings, new challenges and opportunities in the upcoming 28 day Lunar cycle.  Sagittarius energy is so much about expanding our horizons, having a broadminded outlook on life, our philosophy of life and personal belief system, and what is truth.

Yet what is interesting is that the most powerful planetary influence to this New Moon point is from idealistic but at times confusing Neptune. So it’s as if all the Sag qualities mentioned above need to be examined and clarified so we can determine what is truth, and what is illusion. If our sense of faith comes from a heartfelt connection to what is right and good and true, we are more likely to find ourselves embracing the holiday season with the best we have to offer. The fact that Sagittarius ruler Jupiter forms a productive interaction with Saturn, his brother in maturity and social responsibility, helps give us a positive approach to this New Moon energy.

However, there’s also a challenging interaction between the planets Jupiter, Uranus, Venus and Pluto, and the bodies Ceres and Eris. It’s possible facing issues regarding the health of both our closest loving relationship as well as business partnerships is on the horizon. We have the opportunity and potential to take control of our experiences with others. Of course control may imply inflexibility. Using compromise to find a balance should help things work out fine.

As for today. With an interaction between partnership oriented Venus and independent Uranus all day Tuesday, the unexpected could occur in our interactions with others either at work or home. Be open to the new and different, but don’t expect any permanent commitment.

Also, this evening features a harmonious interaction between the Sagittarius Moon and both upbeat Mars and Jupiter. Friendship, a sense of a common bond with others, and seeing the best in humanity, is possible.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Monday November 28

November 28, 2016

 

Today is a mostly quiet day in the cosmos, with no major interactions between planets. With the Moon in her final hours in the often cautious, deep feeling Water sign Scorpio, taking you time to get your day going after the long holiday weekend would be advisable,

Thankfully, with Luna moving into the optimistic, expansive Fire sign Sagittarius just before 1 PM, you’re more likely to feel upbeat as the day progresses. But with no planetary or Lunar contacts until the Sag New Moon early tomorrow morning, it would be best not to initiate any new projects today, but to take a more thoughtful and philosophical approach to your own life circumstances, or conditions in the nation and world in general.

Cosmic Weather Forecast Friday-Sunday November 25-27

November 25, 2016

 

While Friday’s planetary interactions all occur before sunrise, their influence will likely still be felt into the morning hours. Venus, the planet that affects relationships, money and material security, and our sense of self worth and what we value, is being affected by both expansive Jupiter and intense, at times controlling Pluto during this time.

With so called “Black Friday” occurring the day after Thanksgiving, if we’re so inclined to get out and do that big shopping for bargains and savings, both Venus contacts could cause us to place way too much emphasis on the dollar, as opposed to what we’re grateful and thankful for. Yet even if this is not what we’re drawn to on our Friday, it could be that, with the Moon in harmony seeking Libra all day today, along with the strong contact between Venus an Jupiter, the planets of self indulgence, today could just turn out to be a very lazy day.

A helpful contact between Mercury and Uranus that begins to influence our thought processes late Friday and into Saturday encourages flashes of insight and heightened intuition. Conversations with others, or self expression through the written word, could have us focus on anything from progressive ideals and a quality of open-mindedness, to being attracted to new technologies, including those we may have purchased on Friday.

Yet a contact between Mercury and Chiron the Wounded Healer around the same time could also cause troublesome thoughts, or a sense of insecurity about our own mental abilities, to percolate to the surface. If these things do occur, it’s quite possible they are more irrational than anything else. See this as an opportunity to reflect on the causes as to why you may be feeling this way.

Also, with the Moon entering into the intense, and times obsessive sign Scorpio just after the stroke of midnight on Saturday, our weekend could be a combination of psychological detours and complexes, to a sense of passion and emotional strength in all that we do. Being more connected with the feelings and needs of both ourselves and others is likely as well.

The highlight of our Sunday is an interaction between the Sun and the planet Uranus. With the independent signs Sagittarius and Aries being highlighted, it could be we may be more inclined to go our own way, to do our own thing. Personal freedom may be more important than usual. In addition, a sense or restlessness or unpredictability could take place as well. Yet you can also use this Sun/Uranus contact to perhaps broaden your outlook on life, as well as being more independent and open to a new and different way of being in the world.
