Monday, December 31

Saddle up.  The line-up in the Skywatch today is stellar for work or play.

Luna sextiles the Sun at 11:46 am PST Monday morning creating a lovely balance between ego and emotions—it’s a very good time to make important decisions and purchases.  The Moon sextiles dependable Saturn at 2:09 pm and travels on to trine romantic and psychic Neptune at 7:11 pm Monday night.

The best news today is that Mars leaves water logged Pisces where he has been weak and underwater since November 15 and enters his home sign of Aries at 6:20 pm early Monday evening.  Mars can be hasty but he also fires up our passions and energy—I’ll bet there’s lots of action on the dance floor in celebrations tonight (fights, too).

As times change.

If your birthday is this week (December 30–January 5)

Your ruling planet, Saturn, is sitting next to your Sun in your new Solar Return, Capricorn.  This once-in-29-year event pushes you into working hard and being conservative and realistic in your plans and thinking in the months ahead.  Most helpful is that lucky Jupiter is also in his home sign, Sagittarius, increasing the chances of approval and success in whatever you attempt.  New beginnings are especially favored this year as you have Mars in home sign Aries giving you an energy boost and the muscle to go after top priority ambitions.  It all adds up to one of the better charts for a new year than you've had in some time, Capricorn.  Stay focused and you can be in a much better position by next year’s birthday.  As times change.

Sunday, December 30

Morning hours are the best for anything important on Sunday.

An unexpected twist of events is likely when the Moon opposes unpredictable Uranus at 2:53 pm PST Sunday afternoon. Luna then turns Void of Course until she enters passionate Scorpio at 5:23 pm on Sunday.

Clear skies follow into the late hours. As times change.

Saturday, December 29

A grumpy Moon-Saturn square at 7:41 am PST Saturday morning is followed by an upbeat and optimistic Moon-Jupiter sextile at 8 am.  But those are the only two exact aspects in the heavens on Saturday.

However, if you stay up late the mood changes as the Moon squares demanding Pluto just after midnight, exact at 12:23 am early Sunday morning.

Green lights are up until then with the Moon in partnership sign Libra—this is a good day to join forces with friends and loved ones and for all social plans.

Friday, December 28

Don’t rush in.

The Moon opposes hasty Mars at 8:27 am PST and then turns Void of Course until she enters gentle Libra at 12:23 pm.

Green lights come on at this moment as the Skywatch clears and a nice kiss shows up in the heavens: Venus sextile Pluto, exact at 1:27 pm.  These are the money planets, and they suggest a very good day for financial decisions and finding new sources of profit and agreement.

Astrological skies then clear and remain clear for the rest of the day and night.

Thursday, December 27.

Mixed signals.

The Moon opposes dreamy Neptune at 9:09 am PST this morning kicking on the caution lights.

Communication problems are also likely this afternoon as the Moon squares distracted Mercury at 4:04 pm.

Green lights and a clearing trend follow as the Moon sextiles charming Venus at 6:52 pm and then trines healing Pluto at 8:04 pm.

Quiet hours follow.  As times change.
