Astrology of Friday, December 8th

Daily Astro-Weather

Friday begins with the Moon in Leo making a stimulating pair of trines to Uranus in Aries and retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius. Although this configuration is both motivating and visionary, it also carries a very strong disruptive potential. Adaptability may be called for during this first portion of Friday.

Yet what surprise or spontaneity arose during the early hours is grounded out by the Moon’s afternoon trine with stern, structured Saturn and subsequent sextile with goal-directed Mars. Late afternoon, the Moon exits Leo, forsaking the Lion’s sign for the detailed fields of Virgo.

Finally, during the dead of night, Mars enters Scorpio. The red planet’s transition from Libra to Scorpio is a dramatic one. Mars is impeded in Libra, weakened and bottled up by indecision and social niceties, while in Scorpio, the red planet is at the very height of its power. Mars in Scorpio opens up cans of whupass and pours out vials of wrath. The martial current, diminished over the past 6 weeks, is due to overflow for the next month and a half. Best to channel that ferocity into ruthless determination, lest it find a home in meaningless contention.
