The Week Ahead
Monday, November 29th → The Sun and Mercury still sit directly on top of each other in our stars, holding that conjunction steady. However, the fused, vibrant energy of the pair now comes in line with another planet: disciplinary Saturn. Together, they form a sextile with the father planet, instilling a strong work ethic into all of us.
Tuesday, November 30th → The Sun, Mercury, & Saturn have our practical side covered. But what about our dreamy side? Well, Mars in Scorpio continues to trine Neptune in Pisces, and just to add to the mix, romantic Venus moves directly in between the two, forming sextiles with both. So, while we continue the more sultry energy or Mars trine Neptune, we’re also sprinkling in some fun flirtations & new beginnings (sextile Mars) as well as a strengthening and healing of the bonds we already have (sextile Neptune).
Wednesday, December 1st → Believe it or not, it’s already December! I don’t know about the rest of you, but it feels like this year has flown by. We’re now in the final month of the year, so it’s time for December babies to talk about how we always save the best for last (& you should always get the best for the best)! The birthstone for December is turquoise, so we’ve pulled together some of our favorite pieces of turquoise jewelry in our December Babies Collection! Happy birthday to you all!
Thursday, December 2nd → The Moon entered Scorpio last night & teed itself up for a set of wonderful aspects today. First, it will trine Neptune, offering creativity & inspiration. Next up: sextile Venus. Time to write that love letter! Then it conjuncts Mars, allowing you to advocate for your feelings. The penultimate Thursday transit is sextile Pluto, drawing up new & more powerful emotions. And then, finally, square Jupiter, which will activate good luck in relation to your emotions.
Friday, December 3rd → The Moon continues to move forward, leaving the sign of the scorpion for the sign of the archer. Following the positive energy of yesterday, this transit predicts a period of self confidence. This is not a lengthy transit; the Moon will move into Capricorn Sunday morning, so lean into it while it’s here! Hold your head high, and allow yourself to be proud.
Saturday, December 4th → Today holds a total solar eclipse! Put a hold on busting out the eclipse glasses though; this one will only be visible from Antarctica. However, just because we’re not in the Moon’s shadow doesn’t mean we don’t get to reap the benefits of the eclipse. A solar eclipse is just another new Moon (think: beginnings) except, this go around, the Earth, Sun, and Moon all align on the ecliptic (think: beginnings, but everything aligns). If you’ve been waiting to start something new, now is your time!
Sunday, December 5th → Mars in Scorpio moves into sextile with Pluto in Capricorn, creating a positive energy between the planet of aggression and the planet of transformation. This transit is often found to be invigorating, lighting a fire under you, and pushing you to press things into action. This is a wonderful transit to follow the solar eclipse, because it gives you the voice and strength to continue forward on the big change the eclipse likely spurred.
