18-24 Dec 2017
We begin the week with a New Moon in Sagittarius on the 18th. This particular Full Moon will take place amongst a stellium of planets in the sign of Sagittarius, giving us a fresh and concentrated burst of fiery, enthusiastic energy, making us feel that anything is possible.
The Sabian symbol for the degree of this lunar event is:
The sculptor’s vision is taking form.
And given that on Wednesday, Saturn, the great manifestor, will ingress into earth-sign Capricorn for a stay of two years, it would be the perfect time to use the New Moon to define a set of very clear goals and aspirations which Saturn can then help you to achieve through patience, hard work and persistence over the course of the next few years.
Indeed, Saturn’s ingress into its own sign of Capricorn for the first time since 1988, is a vey powerful one. Between now and 2020, we may begin to notice a subtle shift in emphasis towards the need to prepare for old age and/or make more realistic lifestyle decisions, especially when it comes to obligations towards family and society. Although this placement can be associated with greed, avarice and conservatism, it also has the potential to augur in the return of responsible business practices and political responsibility – something we should begin to notice almost immediately when the Sun enters Capricorn at the solstice on Thursday and then makes a conjunction to Saturn at 21h08 GMT that night.
As if that weren’t enough for one week, we also have a rather thrilling Venus-Uranus trine to look forward to on Wednesday at 23h15 GMT, which could bring with it some rather unexpected but pleasant romantic developments and/or creative decisions. Be spontaneous now and go with the flow, even if what you decide is rather out of character – let love push you out of your comfort zone!
Finally, at the end of the week, Mercury will turn direct, bring to an end any communication problems, technical issues or travel delays you may have been experiencing.
Wow! What a week! Enjoy…
