... New Moon begins the week .... 

with Mercury turning direct by the end of the week

This week, December 17th through December 23rd, begins with the aspects building into a New Moon reaching a crescendo late Sunday evening/early Monday morning. With Sun conjunct Moon, at 28 Sagittarius, the new beginnings are being prepared as Moon connects with Mercury retrograde and Moon connects with Venus. This aspect brings information into this New Moon that opens up a very eventful week.

Late Tuesday, Saturn shifts out of Sagittarius, where it has been since December 2014, and moves into Capricorn. Saturn will effectively join Pluto already in the Capricorn sector, for the next three years, through December 2020. This will have a very powerful effect on the Capricorn ruled areas of business, financial dealings and corporate cultures as well as rules of the game. Saturn as the taskmaster will begin to audit and do white-glove checks when it comes to Pluto’s use or mis-use of power. Saturn is always the boot-camp sergeant that does those spot checks to see that everything is in the right place; boots shined and in perfect condition. Anything less than perfect with Pluto’s use of power and influence within the Capricorn areas, Saturn requires a disciplined action plan to correct the situation, and a rewrite of the rules of the game.

On Thursday, Sun shifts into Capricorn to bring in the Solstice and joins Saturn later in the afternoon. Sun shining the light onto Saturn brings in a new energy and provides a very powerful shift of focus. Saturn will begin the process to take a look at the use or mis-use of power from the beginnings days of Pluto moving into Capricorn from 2008 and up to the current scenarios. Saturn swoops in with a very specific agenda as the boot-camp sergeant that takes over the new auditing process to review the use or mis-use of Pluto’s power, as taking responsibility is the effect of Saturn.  Capricorn influences business, business financial dealings, the corporate culture as rules of the game, and how our career and career pursuits align with these areas.  

Friday, Mercury slows and hovers at 13 Sagittarius before turning direct later in the evening. This Mercury retrograde has combed back through the Sagittarius information that will now begin to emerge as Mercury turns direct. The previous connections of Mercury with Saturn occurred November 27th, December 6th, and will connect with Saturn again in 2018, but in Capricorn, setting the pace for the New Year. Mercury and Saturn connect on January 13th at 2 Capricorn, which brings in the first wave of the new regime’s audits aligned with the Capricorn focus.
