Starcodes: December 2-8


Starcodes for the week of December 2-8, 2022

‘Tis the season. This week planets in enthusiastic fire signs encourage us to fully enter the winter holiday season. Magical- thinking Neptune turns direct after months retrograde and adds an extra twinkle to the holiday lights. This Neptune can also get us into trouble as it adds a touch of magical thinking to our emotional insecurities or assumptions as Neptune squares heart-centered Venus.

We don’t have to get all of our decorations up–though it will feel good to create and observe beauty– but we might consider what acts of generosity, creativity, and goodwill we’d like to accomplish all this winter. Over the weekend a proactive Aries Moon combines with that desire for a magical twinkle and encourages us to break routine and create something lovely. It’s good to take our minds to those places of beauty because Neptune can also beckon us off the past and get us lost in a snowstorm, in our insecurities or some favorite illusion.

While this Neptune potentially adds the sparkle it can also make it challenging to read the weather or other people’s motives, whether they are lost in their own fairytale or disaster movie. Both Mercury and Mars are out of bound, or out of the sun’s yearly path, and while this can bring lovely spontaneous moments, it can also stimulate some truly strange moments. While most conversations will be lovely and versatile, when people spout off -what they say can be outrageous. A few of us will be recovering from scuffles, incidents, or sore points which flared last week as Venus opposed Mars, and need some extra gentleness,

Early next week our desire for seasonal magic can clash with practical necessities as the Moon enters grounded Taurus Sunday night and mental Mercury enters results-oriented Capricorn on Tuesday, but these earthy planets can help us accomplish our work goals before the holidays begin. If another person gets controlling and starts trying to organize our lives, just know that’s their anxiety; we don’t have to cooperate, but we also don’t have to confront them. Distract them like you would a toddler.

Friday, December 2: Direct enthusiasm wisely, people could drive carelessly or spout off quickly today while the Aries Moon trines the Sun in Sagittarius. High spirits can make us joyful when expressed but produce impulsive frustration if we feel blocked. Maybe it’s time to build a snowperson or go sliding. If the effect of last week’s arguments or snafus linger, don’t hold onto tension; look for common goals instead.

Moon trine Sun 5:09 PM, Moon conjunct Chiron 7:35 PM.

Saturday, December 3: Wonderfully sociable aspects encourage us to dive into seasonal events, but some more haunting existential questions can cloud the waters underneath as the sun semi-squares Pluto. Be gentle with questions of self-worth. Tonight, magic beckons as Venus squares Neptune; don’t jump to conclusions about other people’s feelings but do find that magic in twinkling lights and compassionate acts.

Moon sextile Mars 6:11 AM, Moon sextile Saturn 10:05 AM, Moon trine Venus 1:56 PM, Neptune station direct 5:15 PM, sun semi-square Pluto 6:23 PM, Moon trine Mercury 8:56 PM, Moon square Pluto 10:46 PM.

Sunday, December 4: Cook a nice breakfast and get comfortable as the Taurus Moon works its embodied wonders. Don’t hurry, watch holiday movies, practice arts and crafts, or tell each other stories. Just acknowledge the stories are actual fiction rather than a comfortable emotional or political invention which can steer us off-course. Let calmness heal as the Sun trines Chiron.

Venus square Neptune 12:12 AM. Sun trines Chiron 12:12 AM, Moon enters Taurus 4:37 AM.

Monday, December 5: Refocus on work, respond productively to deadlines and make things happen things happen. The earthy Taurus Moon encourages us to get practical and do feasibility studies on the weekend’s great ideas. Pitch an idea, proposal, or resume and manifest over the next few days as Mercury squares Neptune opens up possibilities and encourages our dreams; we just have to add the practicality.

Moon conjunct Uranus 10:37 AM, Moon square Saturn 6:53 PM, Moon sextile Neptune 11:36 PM.

Tuesday, December 6: Watch a tendency to say too much; talk it out but back up what is said with facts and action as mental Mercury squares generous Jupiter under a verbal Gemini Moon. Work with a fresh sense of organization and competence as Mercury enters Capricorn. Don’t give into discouragement, tackle one goal at a time instead. Consider looking for a new team, new plans, a concrete approach to a great idea.

Mercury square Jupiter 12:05 AM, Moon trine Pluto 7:51 AM, Moon sextile Jupiter 12:02 AM, Moon enters Gemini 1:48 PM, Mercury enters Capricorn 3:08 PM.

Wednesday, December 7: Stay grounded on this potentially wild day. Expect unexpected comments and actions midmorning as the full Gemini Moon conjunct Mars while the sun quincunx Uranus; speak up but speak thoughtfully. Our nerves wind up we can consider all kinds of crazy possibilities, enjoy the show but don’t follow those crazy thoughts down the rabbit hole nor get caught up in other people’s whirlwind. Find safe ways to channel sudden flashes of anger or impulse. This is a good day to release what needs to be released. Step back from difficult situations and take a break, rather than throw them all out the window. Later in the day if our nerves feel expended, fried, it will further to refill the wells and find humor where we can.

Sun quincunx Uranus 3:34 PM, Moon opposes sun 9:08 PM, Moon conjunct Mars 9:18 PM, Sun opposed Mars 10:41 AM.

Thursday, December 8: Settle down, settle in, see what needs to be repaired reorganized or followed through upon from yesterday’s wildcards as the Moon trines Saturn and squares Uranus. Take that discussion a little farther, but don’t try to hold people longer than their attention span can hold. Reach out and make fresh contacts for work, write what needs to be written. Later on, any practical and sequential activity can help stabilize emotions. Tonight, as the Moon opposes Venus and squares Jupiter, watch for impolitic or undiplomatic comments which are more a sign of emotional awkwardness than lack of caring.

Moon trine Saturn 5:41 AM, Moon square Uranus 10: 12 AM, Moon opposes Venus 10:28 PM, Moon square Jupiter 11:13 PM.
