As 2010 sinks slowly into the setting Sun we have a waning Moon in Libra. Attention to our partners and partnerships has been the focus in the last couple of days, but that's about to shift. In addition Mercury is about to begin direct motion. Lest you think that means everything returns to normal, just remember it will be 19 January 2011 before Mercury regains the ground lost during the retrograde. This back half of the retrograde is sometimes referred to as the retrograde shadow and can be even more challenging than the retrograde itself. So, try to avoid signing any agreements--especially as they relate to career till the 19th of January, if you can hold out that long.
Wednesday's Celestial weather is a bit challenging, what with intense Scorpio up to bat along with Mars and Saturn mixing it up during a void of course period. I'm going to call it a three star day, just to keep us all on our toes. Do your self care rituals, meditate, use some aromatherapy (lavender is good for stress relief) and make it a good day!
29 December 2010 begins with a trine between the Moon and Neptune at 7:05 AM, and insightful dreams are likely (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). Slip a piece of aquamarine or moonstone under your pillow tonight and have pen and paper at the ready to record your dreams! The Moon is void of course after that last aspect and you will want to avoid starting new projects until the Moon switches signs to Scorpio.
Mars squares Saturn at 7:28 AM and this is a big caution sign, drive carefully and keep an eye out for trouble. Stay away from seedy areas and difficult people if at all possible. The Moon enters Scorpio at 12:50 PM and our focus shifts to the more intense aspects of life: sex, death, transformation, other people's money, and metaphysics to name just a few possibilities. You'll have more fire power for your metaphysical studies when the Moon forms a sextile with Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, at 9:56 PM.
Last, but not least, Mercury begins direct motion at 11:21 PM. Communication, written materials, cell phones, computer, internet and transportation issues will be in the spotlight for the next few days as Mercury slowly picks ups speed on its way back to the sign of Capricorn.
Thankfully, the next couple of days the Universe is a bit kinder to humanity and we will see 2010 sail away under easier aspects. Despite these easier aspects, I will need to change our twitter date to New Years day 11:30 AM to noon PST for free Medicine Card readings. If you haven't yet joined me on twitter, please do so (see the contact info tab above), I'd love to 'meet' you in cyberspace for some metaphysical chat. My hashtag will be #lagirl13, but if you need a more personal read, just click on my contact information tab above to schedule an appointment.
Till next time...
