Astrology of Saturday, December 2nd

Astrology of Saturday, December 2nd

Daily Astro-Weather

Though Saturday begins with the Moon in plodding Taurus, by mid-day it enters speedy Gemini. In Gemini, Luna’s silver rays strike the nervous system like caffeine beams. While there may be an abundance of mental energy about the day, clarity is another thing entirely.

Multiple factors speak to the potential for confusion today, not the least of which is Mercury’s retrograde station. Mercury’s retrograde phase, which will last until December 21st, is due to bring another round of mistakes, mishaps, ambivalence and insight.

In addition to Mercury’s pirouette, the Sun in Sagittarius makes a perfect square with Neptune in Pisces today, fuzzing crisp outlines and offering a variety of distractions. Yet there may be something fortunate in those daydreams, for as the Sun squares Neptune, Jupiter trines it, filling the vapors with elusive but auspicious wisdom.

You want to stay on the Jupiterian side of things today — big dreams and vast ideas. The more detailed and planned out you try to make the day, the more likely you are to get sucked into Mercury’s retro-vortex.

Although the minute in which the Moon is perfectly Full does not arrive until tomorrow morning, Saturday night is the Fullest those dwelling in the Americas will see the Moon. The Fullish Moon in Gemini magnifies the themes of Mercury’s retrograde considerably.
