Sun/uranus marks the start of Thursday as the best part of the day. ’Tis blessed to give or to volunteer. Friday, Venus/neptune puts creativity, romance, kindness, and the spirit of generosity into full play. Mercury/jupiter has more to say, show, do, buy, or farther to go. On the other hand, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the onslaught or crowds. Allow yourself extra time to get to the finish line or your destination. These transits also hold a propensity for taking on too much or for talking yourself into more than is warranted or wise.
Well timed for shifting gears, the winter solstice begins with the sun’s entrance into Capricorn on Friday afternoon (2:23 p.m.). Building to Saturday morning, the full moon in Cancer can increase emotionalism, nostalgia, a sense of a time crunch or of running out of steam or patience. By Sunday, the full-moon strain is likely to be mostly washed away. The heart continues to feel what it feels, but from a go-gentler-on-yourself or sweet-spot place.
By early Monday evening, Mercury/neptune diffuse the pressure from earlier in the day. If you have partied for the afternoon, don’t get behind the wheel. Keep an eye on your valuables and on the details, too.
Despite recent hardships and the uncertainty that lies ahead, the Leo moon on Christmas Day provides a better stellar backdrop than many of the recently past holidays. No matter how you spend it, you should feel that the day did all right by you. The Virgo moon on Boxing Day keeps us on a good bounce-back.
May the holidays warm your heart and soothe your soul!
