December 12th brings an inferior conjunction between Mercury Rx and the Sagittarius Sun. This is the midpoint of Mercury’s retrograde, which suggests that delays/questions/reviews will uncover something useful. And the Sun will illuminate it in a moment of clarity.
Venus in Sagittarius trines the Leo North Node on December 14th, Mercury Rx conjoins Venus on December 15th and trines the North Node on December 16th. What the Sun illuminates can be quite positive - a desirable piece of news that turns your eyes to a hopeful future. Even though Mercury will not station direct until December 22nd, you can start laying out a rough draft for future plans (just leave some room for additional adjustments).
Note that Mercury previously trined the North Node on November 19th, so you could be revisiting a potential (a hopeful idea that referenced the future) from that day.
December 15th/16th also sees the Sun reigniting a square to Chiron in Pisces and a trine to Uranus Rx in Aries. You’ve felt this before, as Mercury direct and Rx pinged these aspects on November 24th/25th and December 10th. You’ll be reminded of a bruise or weakness (again) but the hopeful developments with Mercury Rx, the North Node and Venus say that now you have additional insight (and maybe some good news) to back you up.
Wondering what 2018 has in store for you? I'm currently booking into March, so if you want a reading that's still early(ish) in the year, consider ordering a consult.
Aspects to the the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your opportunities sector (including the trine to Uranus Rx in your sign) can spotlight an issue involving travel, education, legal matters, beliefs or publishing. One or more of these areas is up for review, and a specific message or document may be hi-lighted. A favourable opportunity or intriguing individual (long-distance romance) may be part of the story. There’s room for creative and romantic growth here - don’t hesitate to make your thoughts known, even if the results are not immediately forthcoming.
You’ll still be dealing with the activation of hidden wounds/insecurities from the last three weeks. But by now, your sense of future potentials should give you enough confidence to keep moving forward.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your sector of shared resources emphasizes a key conversation or piece of information involving debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances or intimacy. A specific issue or uncomfortable discussion will be revisited, but now you’ll have added insight as something deeper is uncovered. This can also apply to psychological exploration. As you sort through the buried information, you should also gain access to financial or emotional benefits - more intimacy, more sharing or perhaps some financial assistance. Domestic finances and family matters can benefit.
Public embarrassments or feeling “less than” when you compare yourself to others may still be an issue, as they have been for the past three weeks. But take note of your growing pool of insight, inner strength and private support - these are things that outsiders can’t touch or fully understand.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your partnership sector spotlight the return to a previous relationship conversation or agreement. Or, there could be a reconnection with a past partner. The purpose will be to see how relationship beliefs and promises are holding up. Even as you return to something from the past, you should see future possibilities opening up along with a sense that you are both moving towards the same, desirable objective. These aspects favour all one-on-one contacts/discussions (not just romantic) that you’d like to expand into something more. Watch for a “fated” connection or timely conversation that reignites feelings of hope. If you’re trying to promote yourself or make your ideas public, a partnership is your best avenue for this.
Having said this, you’ll still be experiencing sensitivities and disappointments (from the past three weeks) related to career, a job search or someone in authority. But a business or romantic partner has your back - you can turn to someone close to you for support and fresh ideas.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your sector of routine will revisit a key task, diagnosis or health issue. You’ll be going over the details and refining your routines/solutions, and you should find extra assistance. The closer you look, the more favourable solutions will be revealed. Concentrating on self-improvement, obligations and corrections can directly benefit your financial and emotional security. Watch for new possibilities to open at work, as you’re recognized for your unique approach.
However, doubts or sore spots involving travel, education, legal matters, beliefs or publishing will still be triggered, as they have been over the past three weeks. You may still find it difficult to maintain faith, or reach beyond your current situation. The key is concentrating on your immediate environment - health and routines is where it’s at now. Get these things in order, and you’ll be prepared to handle the big picture.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your sector of self-expression take you back to an area of focus around artistic work, children/pregnancy or a new attraction. But this time, there’s extra clarity and a possible breakthrough- aspects to the North Node in your sign suggest there’s plenty of room for progress. Even if you’re not getting exactly what you want right now, or you’re struggling to make yourself heard, know that your continued dedication will pave the way forward. Someone from the past could reappear and offer an alternative to what you’re striving for. Or, they could offer you encouragement to keep going.
Wounds or uncomfortable issues involving debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances or intimacy will continue to be triggered, as they have been for the past three weeks. This can be particularly frustrating, as you won’t have full control over what’s happening. Nonetheless, you’re being urged to make the most of what you have - your charisma, talent and ability to shine. It’s still all about you, even though you have to apply some extra patience.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your domestic sector will draw your attention (once again) to a home responsibility, relocation, family discussion or issue with parents. More details can be revealed - there may be more to the traditional narrative. Watch for an increase in love, understanding and positive energy, as well as a hard-to-define but accurate feeling that you’re moving in the right direction (even if things appear to be at a standstill). There can be subtle but sure progress with domestic finances and psychological blocks/habits from the past.
Touchy issues with a partner from the past three weeks will still be active, but you’re in the process of working through those issues by addressing recurring themes. Don’t be afraid to confront what’s taboo or private - now’s the time to shed light on these topics.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your communication sector will hi-light a conversation or understanding from the past. You’ll be looking at previous information with fresh eyes, and could discover something favourable that helps you connect with others or make your message public. Too, there could be a flirtatious contact with someone from the past, or a second chance to impress someone.
Over the past three weeks you may have encountered stressful information or realizations related to work or health. Those difficulties will continue to be activated as your attention is drawn to what’s wrong, missing or in need of correction. However, you’ve got positive energy with others on your side. Friends, groups or one-on-one connections can give you the support and solutions to help you through. Don’t hesitate to reach out - you don’t have to go through this alone.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your sector of personal resources can clarify an ongoing issue around earned money, security or self-esteem. More facts will be illuminated, as well as some positive news regarding a job, your career path or your relationship to someone in authority. It may be time to take a second look at a source of income, or ask (one more time) about a raise or job opportunity. If you have to repeat a request (involving baseline emotional needs or boundaries) you could receive a positive response this time.
Doubts and insecurities from the past three weeks will still be factors, as you’re challenged to deal with blows to your ego or worries about finances. Your best bet is to keep the discussion open, and keep looking/asking questions about a future opportunity. There’s more to be revealed.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your sign can clarify an issue you’ve been discussing/questioning, or bring you back to a previous conversation. Going back over the facts and taking a second look at beliefs/promises can deliver added insight, while adjusting your view of the future. Too, there could be a contact with a close friend or romantic interest from the past, or a second chance at a romantic connection. In general, second chances and second looks will bring added benefits. Travel, education, legal matters and publishing are areas that merit continued exploration.
Wounds and sensitive issues involving family, parents or your domestic situation will still be active, as they have been over the past three weeks. But with all the action in your sign, you’ve got more than enough resources to deal with this. Your ability to find a silver lining in any situation will come in handy now. Know that you do have much to look forward to (including Saturn leaving your sign on December 19th).
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your hidden sector can cast a light on something that’s been secret or in your blind spot. Returning to previous issue, or looking more closely at what’s obscured, can uncover a sweet realization and some unexpected blessings. Too, you may discover additional solutions that help you progress in the areas of shared finances or intimacy. If you’re trying to get closer to someone, this could be about allowing them access to something very private.
A difficult conversation or understanding will still be a sore spot, as it has been for the past three weeks. It may seem as if the more you reveal/examine, the more your discomfort increases. The topic isn’t going to vanish, so you might as well do the work behind the scenes. Know that you have additional resources and support to get you through, even if this consists of a unproven but persistent feeling that you’re on the right track.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your social sector can illuminate something hopeful regarding friends, groups or your connection to the public. You could reconnect with someone from the past, which will remind you why you were friends to begin with. Or, a romantic attraction could be reestablished. Too, a second look can confirm someone’s support for you, or hi-light an opportunity to promote/speak out. The connections you make now, and the conversations you have, will encourage you to trust by clarifying the dynamics of your one-on-one relationships.
However, financial/emotional insecurities from the past three weeks will still be in evidence. There may be a key area where you feel helpless and at the mercy of others. Know that all relationships (romantic, friendship, social and business) are favoured, and you can progress towards a more balanced, trusting interaction with others. You’re not in this alone.
Aspects to the Sun, Venus and Mercury Rx in your career sector will deliver additional information about a job prospect, your position at work or your professional image. You could revisit a discussion with management, or hear about a previous job opportunity. This looks favourable, as you connect with those who can help you get ahead while supporting the progression of your daily work and efforts to improve. Career and finances in general will benefit from second chances or asking additional questions. If there’s a delay, it could reveal a silver lining.
However, the Sun’s square to Chiron in your sign will ping an insecurity or weakness that you’ve been dealing with over the past three weeks. Worries about success or the ability to handle more responsibility will continue to be bothersome, but know that you’ve got a pile of energy in your career sector to help you work through this. Mercury Rx is working to direct your attention to beneficial relationships and facts.
