The Day of Quiet Opportunity

December 1st will be a day of quiet potential. Rewards will be there for the few who tune into its subtle energies.

Mars in Capricorn sextiles Saturn in Scorpio (at 27 degrees). Saturn rules Capricorn, so its energy of focus and authority will be enhanced. Disciplined actions (Mars) will be ultra-effective, and caution will be rewarded. Slow, purposeful ambition will win the day. One move will make the case. It won't garner applause, but it will have a resounding impact.

Think of a stone dropping into a deep well; when it finally hits the water, everyone is tuned into the sound it makes.

Also on December 1st, Venus at 18 degrees Sagittarius will sextile the North Node in Libra (ruled by Venus) and trine the South Node in Aries. The transiting South Node is what's up for completion, and the North Node is what's up for further development. Expanding beyond what you're accustomed to (in relationships, values, self-esteem) will enable the South Node wrap up while encouraging North Node development. Step forward and see what else is out there. Broaden your definition of what you want.

Sextiles are subtle opportunities, so you can breeze past these influences. But sometimes a sextile is all you need to break a depressive streak, or tap into new opportunities.

If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 26 to 28 degrees Capricorn or Scorpio, you'll feel the Mars/Saturn sextile most strongly. Anything from 17 to 19 degrees Sag, Aries or Libra will feel the Venus/Nodes aspect.
