THE ASTROL­OGY OF THE MO­MENT IM­PROVES af­ter the win­ter sol­stice on Dec. 21. In the mean­time, love won­der­ful mo­ments as they arise, and treat one an­other with com­pas­sion. We are in the midst of some truly tricky as­pects, but we can nav­i­gate them with con­scious at­ten­tion.

Venus is now in deep Scor­pio, which leaves us sub­dued and in­ter­nal. We need to be hon­est and clear about our re­sent­ment and re­spon­si­ble for our own emo­tional con­tent­ment. We may have been dealt tough and/or great wild­cards, bring­ing our at­ten­tion back to the big is­sues of our time. Mars gives us en­ergy to do what needs to be done but asks us to treat all con­flicts di­rectly, cleanly, and with ma­tu­rity. We need to prac­tice and in­te­grate all that we’ve learned over the last couple of years.

On Fri­day morn­ing, a new moon in Sagit­tar­ius wants things clear, sim­ple, and direct. It helps us jour­ney for­ward as long as ev­ery­one’s hon­est, but that’s not that easy. Re­cent tu­mul­tuous as­pects have really stirred the pot in both the cul­tural and per­sonal sense; hon­est feel­ings may be our truth, but may not re­flect the facts.

This week­end’s Capri­corn moon is rather busi­nesslike, great for more se­ri­ous or for­mal hol­i­day gath­er­ings, but let’s not get grim while hang­ing mistle­toe. Early next week we may be in­spired to do some­thing gen­er­ous, and will cer­tainly feel the sea­son more if we ex­tend our hearts.

Dur­ing th­ese dark­est weeks of the year, we may long for sim­ple things like safety and se­cu­rity and peace on earth. Hang in there with the abil­ity to trans­form that is the sil­ver lin­ing of th­ese tough tran­sits.

FRI­DAY, DEC. 11: The new moon in Sagit­tar­ius asks us to re­new our world­view, but leaves it up to us whether we ex­pand or con­tract in re­sponse to global events. Hon­esty can be bru­tal this morn­ing, but the af­ter­noon light­ens up.

SATUR­DAY, DEC. 12: We can work hard, but let’s not de­spair un­der a com­pe­tent Capri­corn moon. Keep the pur­pose in mind, fo­cus on what and why, and re­lax about how. Evening soft­ens and sparkles, but moods deepen overnight.

SUN­DAY, DEC. 13: We may feel like we just have to do some­thing, any­thing about what both­ers us this morn­ing. No­tice the feel­ings, but don’t take anx­i­ety out close to home; we need to ac­knowl­edge the big­ger is­sues that are not in our con­trol, and do what we can nearby. Af­ter­noon brings a more philo­soph­i­cal per­spec­tive.

MON­DAY, DEC. 14: We need our com­mu­nity — our team — un­der a col­lab­o­ra­tive Aquar­ius moon. We want to be­lieve; we have ac­cess to great imag­i­na­tion, but may also have mo­ments when the world looks alien to us.

TUES­DAY, DEC. 15: This can be a pleas­ant day in a dif­fi­cult week. Nerves may ratchet up this evening; keep tasks small so more gets done.

WED­NES­DAY, DEC. 16: We move into a more vul­ner­a­ble mood. Go gen­tly with one an­other and bring the fo­cus back to what works. Share hope or faith tonight as the moon con­juncts Nep­tune.

THURS­DAY, DEC. 17: We may feel old or creaky this morn­ing, and fairly eas­ily dis­cour­aged un­til mid­day, when Venus brings more hope. This af­ter­noon, we’ll feel bet­ter when we of­fer some­one the pearls of wis­dom of our ex­pe­ri­ence, or ben­e­fit through lis­ten­ing to theirs. Hold hands and share sup­port.
