Starcodes: December 9-15


Starcodes for the week of December 9-15, 2022

Bake cookies, adopt a puppy, or find some other way to bring in coziness and nurturance this weekend as the Moon traverses homey, cuddly, if self-protective Cancer. If life gets strange- get crafty; make ornaments, bake, wrap a package, or build. Busy hands soothe the nerves and become a stabilizing meditation.

This crafty steadiness can help with some ongoing emotional rollercoasters. Ghosts and old memories from holidays past can stir through our back brain throughout the week. We may long for old traditions or feel strangely competitive as creative Venus joins mental Mercury in historically oriented Capricorn. These Capricorn planets can help us stay efficient and get the work done before the holidays kick in but can also bring out a controlling streak. We can grow impatient with people who get in the way of our work or find ourselves arguing over the perfect decorations. We could unproductively want to control what other people are wearing or doing, or how they celebrate their marriage or the winter holidays, especially through this weekend as Mercury semi-squares Saturn.

If we notice any ongoing irritation, and we may with Mars still retrograde and out of bounds in nervy Gemini, let’s not blame it on other people our situation. Instead, let’s stop and listen to what we actually need and take responsibility for our joy. Be pleasantly surprised at how willing many people are to adjust to accommodate reasonable requests.

Look forward to great holiday parties early next week under an extroverted Leo Moon and as the Sun sextiles Saturn. Find that balance between joy and responsibilities midweek. Tie up those loose ends and details as the Moon enters efficient Virgo on Wednesday and Venus semi-squares Saturn, then feel the need grow for some time out, for some seasonal magic as the Sun squares Neptune. Work on clarity of understanding and balance both demands and a general nervousness through the rest of the week as Mercury quincunx Mars.

Friday, December 9: Rather than try to control the situation, roll with the waves of mixed emotions and find a steady path in the middle. We can crave coziness under the Cancer Moon, but can also get easily defensive, or feel rather overwhelmed by life and might rather crawl into a cave, but the competence-inducing Mercury and Venus in Capricorn pulls in the other direction and nags us to hurry up and accomplish. All while Venus squares Jupiter and turns up the volume on all emotions. Beauty, hope, or creativity can help us relax and connect tonight as Venus squares Jupiter and then enters Capricorn.

Moon enters Cancer 12:48 AM, Venus squares Jupiter 5:54 AM, Moon opposes Mercury 8:55 AM, Venus enters Capricorn 8:54 PM.

Saturday, December 10: On this potentially difficult day, the lights tangle as we try to hang them, minor difficulties arise and arguments can ensue as each person has different ways of solving the problems while Mercury semi-squares Saturn. Let’s listen to one another and make emotional safety the real objective. Midday the energy wanders, track what needs doing carefully, and watch a tendency to see what could go wrong better than what could go right; be open to magic, it is there. Evening softens as the Moon trines Neptune and encouraging us to tell a story.

Moon sextile Uranus 8:16 AM, Mercury semi-square Saturn 8:58 AM, Moon trine Neptune 10:18 PM.

Sunday, December 11: Offer comfort if melancholic memories leak in early this morning as the Moon opposes Pluto. If a strange panic arises, about unfinished business or what should we be doing instead, let’s breathe through it and sort our priorities; let the small stuff slide and stick to what is truly important. Seasonal cheer returns midday as the Moon trines Jupiter and enters Leo; engage a sociable and potentially funny afternoon. Two friendly but efficient aspects- the sun sextile Saturn and the Moon sextile Mars- can open doors and support our efforts once we are in motion. Look for good news and heartwarming stories to refocus the soul later on.

Moon opposes Pluto 7:10 AM, Moon trine Jupiter 11:49 AM, Moon enters Leo 1:08 PM.

Monday, December 12: Enthusiasm with a lazy streak; once we’re in motion we can stay in motion, but it would be so tempting to have the worlds us come to us. Wonderfully competent subtle aspects- sun sextile Saturn and Moon sextile Mars- can open doors and support our efforts if we have momentum. Offer simple tangible support, take advantage of opportunities offered. Stay centered tonight through a moment of irritation or discombobulation as the Moon squares Uranus; look for the best possible change.

Sun sextile Saturn 11:12 AM, Moon sextile Mars 6:04 PM, Moon square Uranus 8:46 PM.

Tuesday, December 13: Be kind through a potentially slow or achy morning as the Moon opposes Saturn and reminds us that we’re responsible and need to be grown-ups. Tend to work early, let the coffee hit before hurrying anyone, then take a deep breath and refocus on connections mid-day as the energy relaxes. Then the extroverted Leo Moon trines the Sun and stirs our sense of adventure and drama. Find a new playfulness, explore some new idea, place, or approach. Just do not ignore a beloved or down play their emotions.

Moon opposed Saturn 7:08 AM, Moon trine Sun 8:51 AM.

Wednesday, December 14: Be both realistic and forgiving as the Virgo Moon adds anxious pressures and pushes us to assess, organize, or complain while a dreamy Sun-Neptune square paradoxically tempts us to escape from it all. Daydream and then think of a few positive actions to make it so. Watch for accidents related to an illusion or misunderstanding or a temporary space-out. Go easy on the digestive system and be kind to any ambient anxiety without believing the story. Anxiety can make people pushy as Venus semi-square Saturn. Give great advice, but only when asked.

Moon enters Virgo 1:45 AM, Sun square Neptune 10:10 AM, Venus semi-square Saturn 12:55 PM, Moon trine Venus 1:32 PM, Mercury square Chiron 10:21 PM.

Thursday, December 15: We have places to go, things to do, and will feel better if we stay busy as the Virgo Moon forms a grand trine with Mercury in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. Stay out of busy people’s way and support each other’s work, whether that work is professional or personal. It’s a good day to push a pawn forward or offer a pragmatic proposal; strategic moves will be made so look for those shifts and watch the headlines. Tonight the mood grows more irritable or klutzy as Mercury quincunx Mars; take a deep breath before speaking or jumping to conclusions.

Moon square Mercury 2:01 AM, Moon square Mars 4:29 AM, Moon trine Uranus 8:41 AM, Mercury quincunx Mars 8:11 PM, Moon opposed Neptune 10:40 PM.
