Here is what to watch for, and stay tuned for a video blog this week on the astrology of 2018!
* Mars and Jupiter coming together reflect a period of invigoration, militarism, aggression, fear-facing, courage, emotional confrontation, athleticism, exaggeration, hubris, evangelical fervor, and the empowerment of Jupiterian figures with Mars-like vigor.
* Mercury separating from a square to Neptune is reflecting mental fog or confusion, the desire to alter your state, receiving clear messages from beyond, animal omens, secrets and gossip, deception and lies, technology and travel, philosophical truth vs philosophical speculation, debates about beliefs or truth, objective reasoning vs subjective reasoning, speaking the truth vs hiding the truth behind niceties, etc.
* Venus in Capricorn conjunct Saturn and combust the Sun is an old Venus, facing difficult truths in relationships, or perhaps growing older and wiser and more realistic, an older woman or goddess, the crone, women and generational changes, the death of the goddess, a restart on some aspect of diet or lifestyle, women in the workplace, or new foundations in love or friendship. More on this later this via video-blog!
* First quarter Moon today suggests a critical turning point, a moment of initiation, individuation, separation, and decisiveness. If you feel inspired to put ideas into action, or to take concrete steps toward concrete goals, these impulses are in line with today's Aries/Capricorn Moon/Sun dynamic.
Last but not least, we have just 5 days remaining in my annual kickstarter. It's our goal to raise $5,000 more dollars before new year's day. This last goal will almost guarantee that all of our community projects will be funded in 2017, in addition to this column itself being supported! Anything and everything helps!
Prayer: Renew our hearts and prepare our minds for a new year. Thank you...for everything.
