The sun enters Aquarius Thursday afternoon right after Mars squares Saturn (a transit that can be a quite challenging – we move forward and are pulled back)
On Thursday, Mercury slowly moving forward, re-enters Capricorn. All communication becomes practical, matter of fact and may sound harsh.
In our beginning weeks of January 2017 there is already much activity in the skies influencing each of us.
Sending a mass email is a great way to get some piece of information out to everybody — from your best friend to 1.4 million people on Twitter to three random drunk dudes who really shouldn’t be on their phones at their boss’ funeral in Estonia.
With the Sun entering Capricorn, winter is here (northern latitudes). Mercury is retrograde also in Capricorn and in the sky soon (Christmas morning) the planets (Venus/Jupiter) that formed the Christmas star more than 2000 years ago are trine (harmonious) on this Christmas morning, 2016.
There are some wonderful committed relationships that started off with “I want to spend the rest of my boner with you!”
Welcome to the science-inspired catcall: “Woooo, girl…you look like a nuclear physicist in them hot pants!”
This is our last week before Winter Solstice. Mercury retrogrades (Monday, Dec. 19) through Christmas and into 2017.
Unfortunately, you can’t just tell her that your relationship was “a gift from God.” So was the plague of locusts.
Tuesday, Dec. 13 (Winter Solstice, Julian calendar) is the Feast of St. Lucia (Lucy). Lucia, from Latin “luc, lux”, means “light”, “lucid.”
