If you love Fridays, thank goodness, it's finally here! Have you finished your holiday shopping? No? Don't feel bad, I am nowhere near close. There are still some yellow flashing lights from the Universe for shopping madness, so today only gets three stars. Now let's see what the Celestial energies have in store for us.
Friday 17 December 2010 offers a fabulous trine between the Moon and Mars at a craptastic time--12:33 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). If you live east of California and are a lark, hit the hiking trail, gym or weight bench to maximize the benefits of this aspect. Next up to bat is an opposition between the Moon and Venus at 7:48 AM, so cancel the early morning trek to the mall for shopping. This is an indicator to hold off on financial splurges for the time being. The 'Love Boat' might also be a bit off course with this indicator, so find a way to compromise with your partner.
In other news, the Sun conjoins Mercury now till 19 December--writers take note. Creativity abounds for writers, poets, singers, etc. at this time, so take advantage! This influence is assisted by a sextile between Mercury and Neptune now till 20 December adding inspiration to your written/spoken/sung communications at this time. The only fly in the ointment is Mercury square Jupiter now till 21 December--over optimism is likely with this influence. Lean toward being conservative in your promises and expectations, after all, Mercury is retrograde and the square with Jupiter makes it doubly important to be cautious in your hopes/expectations.
Hopefully you've been paying attention to what people are saying (and not saying)--this is Hawk medicine as I mentioned earlier this week. You'll receive a heads-up in advance of your actions if you intend it and keep your ears open.
Till next time...
