Dear NightFall Astrology readers,
If you’ve been feeling foggy since last week’s FINAL SOLAR ECLIPSE in Sagittarius, my main advice for this week would be to avoid making any major decisions with the lingering confusion. We have Mars, the planet of drive, action and aggression, forming a tense aspect with expansive Jupiter and the Sun, the planet ruling our consciousness and vitality, also squaring evasive Neptune.
Venus in Capricorn is already in its shadow period before it turns retrograde on December 19th, so romantic and financial situations are probably starting to slow down, begging for a review, or even getting conflictual as Venus in this sign is looking for stability and long-term commitment. All in all, relationships can get quite intense this week as the planet of love and money will be making its 1st out of 3 conjunctions with Pluto, the planet of transformation, shared resources, death and rebirth, and intimacy.
Here’s your weekly horoscope.
- From December 6th until December 10th, we’ll feel like we’re going 2 steps forward then 2 steps back. We have an interesting mix of one positive and 2 negative aspects.
The first will be a sextile between Mars in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn (exact on December 7th). This is a supportive transit for getting to the bottom of things and even digging up opportunities in career and money. With Mars in its own sign, you may want to take action immediately after coming up with the “perfect strategy”.
Hold your horses, though!
During the same time period, Mercury in Sagittarius (its detriment position) will be squaring (challenging aspect) Neptune stationed direct in Pisces (exact on December 7th too). This is significantly confusing energy, so implementing any strategy will be difficult with a foggy mind and potentially misleading communication. Review all the details before making any big moves. On the flip side, this is an excellent time for artistic inspiration! So, all of you painters, musicians, writers, dancers, actors… unleash your creativity to the max!
Adding to the challenging and confusing energy, Mars will be in a square with Jupiter (exact on December 8th). This transit can bring financial losses (especially high-risk investments) and isn’t auspicious for radical career changes or expensive purchases.
This mixed energy will strongly affect Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Leo.
- From December 8th until December 14th (exact on December 11th-13th), Venus will make its 1st conjunction with intense Pluto in Capricorn. This erotically charged energy will power up everyone’s animal instincts, but in calm, composed Capricorn, people will be hesitant to make the first move. So if you’re feeling it, take a small-but-daring step closer and see how they respond. Better now than later! The second conjunction happens on Christmas Day, when Venus is retrograde, which is a recipe for mixed messages, to say the least. And it might take until the third Venus-Pluto merger in March to untangle those misunderstandings. So, speak/sext/seduce now, or you might have to hold your peace until spring.
In other situations, this transit helps you radar in on people’s hidden potential, especially with influential figures. Financially and career-wise, you might be able to strike a very lucrative deal, thanks to a strategic move you haven’t thought of before, or you can get discovered by an authority figure from a big company you’ve been wanting to work at for a while!
Don’t let the green-eyed monster crash your party, though! Jealousy, possessiveness, and irrational control issues could bubble up as imaginations spiral out. Capricorn rules the economy, and with luxurious Venus and exacting Pluto connected, a little retail therapy might be just the thing. Both planets love a treasure hunt, so make a list and don’t stop looking until you’ve found THE thing.
This transit will be most significant/challenging for Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, and Libra.
Taurus, Scorpio, Pisces and Virgo can get lucky with serious relationships at this time.
- The mixed messages theme continues into the weekend as Mercury in Sagittarius sextiles Jupiter in Aquarius (positive aspect), and the Sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces (challenging aspect) from December 10th until December 13th.
The sextile can hit us with an outburst of innovative ideas or communications with friends and large groups of people. We may be willing to say yes to every invitation we get or plan too many long-distance trips. But with the Sun squaring Neptune, we won’t be able to make sense of most of it as the emotional side of things will be at the forefront.
And it doesn’t help much that the Sun is in impulsive Sagittarius, while Neptune is on a slow roll through psychedelic Pisces. While nothing outside of yourself may be clear, your inner landscape WILL be illuminated. Seize the opportunity to flip your viewfinder inwards and do some deep introspection. Just don’t act on it carelessly.
These transits will be most significant for Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Virgo.
Stay patient and pragmatic this week!
