Sandra’s Celestial Compass for the Week of December 2nd, 2013
Mercury and Mars prompt you to venture out and seek beyond limitations.
Mercury is busy this week traveling along to align with Mars and Neptune during which time it leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius where it will be until December 24 giving many a sense of relief due to the intensity it has caused by its close proximity to Saturn and part of the recent Scorpio solar eclipse still strongly resonating. It energizes and beguiles and sets you free with thoughts of sailing off to faraway regions. Restoration of faith and inspiration helps you to gain an optimistic view of the world and connect with the sense of potential for positive expansion. World views and much thought is activated as you engage with others through communication. There is much to think about and a renewal of hope.
Mars also changes signs on Saturday going into Libra where it transits until July 25, 2014 which is a very long time because midway between now and then it turns retrograde that intensifies this sign placement. In Libra, Mars manifests a need to find just the right mix of action and intention that in turn will have many striving to work through a balancing act. The give and take of life is very paramount in everyone’s mind with many struggling to make peace and find solutions to getting along with others. Legalities are sensitized because Libra governs attorneys. Solutions are divided and the line is thin as to what is right and where change is needed. Relationships are scrutinized and also in need of refining though not through enforcement but instead with understanding of individual rights and reasons for association.
The Sagittarius New Moon will help you to gain ground and build momentum for this and next week. The growing awareness of what really matters will be liberating in many ways.

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius
The Moon in Sagittarius from 1:32 AM until Wednesday gives the feeling that you can do anything. Optimism and enthusiasm about life return with a bit of excitement and interest in spreading your wings. Slight restlessness could come along with this though there is happiness and an easy going attitude. Thoughts turn to bigger ideas and philosophizing about life and the future. Ideas abound.
The Moon square Neptune at 5:56 AM causes a lack of clarity or misconception leading to mistakes so be sure and thorough about what you are doing and where you are going. You may also find it difficult to sort reality from fiction.
Glimmers of extraordinary information is easy to acquire by paying attention to flashes that bring in different kinds of information than usual while the Moon trine Uranus is active at 3:40 PM. Thoughts are quick and also encouraging. Enthusiasm and even excitement allows you to perceive something special and useful.
The New Moon in Sagittarius at 7:23 PM begins a bright two week cycle that enhances plans and encourages you to get going in a grander way than usual. Life looks up and hope is part of this pleasant beneficial wave. Ideas are grand though you may not be able to follow through with everything but certainly will be thinking of directions that allow you to expand your life based on ideals and beliefs. Study and accessing knowledge is part of this cycle with a renewed interest in your beliefs. Long distance communication is also a part of activities and maybe even travel.

Moon in Sagittarius
Mercury sextile Mars at 11:35 AM is very nice for gaining momentum and encouragement with what you do. Extra energy and enthusiasm abounds that sweeps you along with ease in all activities. You also feel encouraged and as if you can do more than usual.
While the Moon square Mars peaks at 10:46 PM something might get in the way or else an impulsive feeling may cause you to want to take risks or be hasty that is not a good idea. There is a lack of certainty in the atmosphere.

Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn
In Capricorn from 1:51 AM until next Saturday the Moon provides the ability to focus and work on what matters most to you in the way of sustaining important aspect of life such as security, career and how you have established your lifestyle. Structure, order and discipline are important.
At 6:09 AM the Moon sextile Neptune helps to tune in and gain understanding of your surroundings and what happens. It is easy to attune to people and easily know what they mean and convey. You see through complication and creativity is heightened.
Objections or disruption occurs while the lunar square to Uranus is active at 3:39 PM causing delay or a halt to progress. Things can go nowhere or fall apart so it is not a good time for beginnings but rather is better if you can take a break.
Strong wills and a desire for power is part of the conjunction between the Moon and Pluto at 6:20 PM. This combination gives strength and yet could be a lot of energy to handle. Matters can go over the top and be too much so consider your and others motives before you act or become involved with what seems too adamant.
Mercury enters Sagittarius at 9:43 PM where it will be until December 24 providing expansion of the mind and a nice enthusiasm about life especially as it pertains to futuristic plans and fulfillment of dreams. Many will be on the go but may not have a direction or even care as long as they are free to roam and be out there. Conversations turn to ideologies and beliefs. There is an interest in furthering spiritual awareness along with exploration and gathering of knowledge.

Moon in Capricorn
At 6:00 AM the Moon sextile Saturn stabilizes events and creates a reliable foundation. Work and following through with responsibilities is easy and worthwhile. The time is nice for establishing solidity and permanency. There is an enduring quality to what happens.
While active at 8:31 AM the Moon opposite Jupiter causes everything to be up in the air or a lack of direction. What feels and appears to be great is more than likely to be more imaginary and certainly is not reliable. Attention and focus is required to manage.
A pleasant atmosphere results from the Moon conjunct Venus at 4:47 PM that provides interest in connecting with others and a social awareness. People are easygoing and want to please or engage in pleasantries. Creativity is enhanced making it easy to produce lovely things.

Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius
Added energy to get moving or take big strides is there for you at 12:33 AM from the Moon trine Mars. This angle adds strength and the ability to keep going to reach the finish line.
While in Aquarius from 1:55 AM until Sunday the Moon elevates consciousness of the masses to see commonality and to understand the bigger picture of what is happening in society, the world and in community. There is a feeling of connectedness though still a bit of coolness and detachment. A slight eccentricity comes out where there is a tendency. You will notice a few odd behaviors and comments.
Talking and connecting through social media benefits from the 5:10 AM Moon sextile Mercury. Messages are clear and flow freely. It is a good time to have discussions and engage with others.
A boost of awareness comes in with the 3:59 PM sextile between the Moon and Uranus that elevates the mind to greater comprehension so you grasp and understand more than usual. There is newness in the air making many feel like doing something different.
Mercury square Neptune at 4:31 PM is an important energy in that it easily causes something to be misconstrued so if you are working on important documents and major agreements you should make a point to be as thorough as possible and look for errors. Commitments made now and as this time approaches may not last or are fraught by mistakes and misunderstanding. At the most difficult manifestation is deception.

Moon in Aquarius
Gaining a nice stride and an easy going spirit comes with the Moon sextile the Sun at 3:05 AM. Major tasks and execution of bigger corporation projects goes well. The energy flows helping everything to flow with little effort. A key is easiness and progress.
Sullen attitudes or discord develops when the Moon square Saturn angle peaks at 7:12 AM. Burdens and difficulty slows or stops the ability to function so take your time and keep expectation simple. Be willing to coast and give latitude to others.
Mars enters Libra at 3:43 PM where it will travel for a very long time due to its retrograde motion. This placement by sign until July 25, 2014 will have legal matters prominent and a need to tend to details. A meticulous mindset will help you though there will be needed adjustment while compromise is difficult to achieve. The concept of exact balance is there but not easily achieved. Direct associations such as marriage and business partnerships are emphasized and anywhere there is conflict or a need to restore harmony that is where you will notice something happening. Public scrutiny where applicable is strong and gets your attention. The more you can establish order now the easier it will be when Mars goes into retrograde motion next year causing a readdressing of agreements. Many in courts now may experience change over time. The slight edge leaves a sense of unrest but there is certainly potential for harmony by being very clear and striving to understand all facts and needs surrounding associations with others and the process of what is at stake.

Moon in Aquarius/Pisces
The Moon in Pisces beginning at 3:35 AM until next week on Tuesday creates an idealistic sense and desire to understand what is happening from a spiritual perspective. Compassion and charity is strong as is expanding intuitive awareness. Dreams and connecting to spirit realms are stronger during these days. You are aware that there is more to life than meets the eye.
Conjunct Neptune in Pisces the Moon at 8:18 AM furthers spiritual awareness and sensitizes the environment allowing you to know on several levels of consciousness what is happening. Understanding is natural and enhanced. A common connection spiritually is recognized. You are able to tune-in.
While the Moon square Mercury angle culminates at 1:09 PM communication is either unclear or in some way off track. Logic is lacking causing words to be spoken out of turn. Something is out of order causing a possibility of having to go back over something later once this energy is passed.
You feel and are strong during the 9:33 PM sextile of the Moon and Pluto that empowers and lends confidence. Pluto in Capricorn facilitates endurance. These together in both water and earth you may create something you feel good about.

Both Libra and Sagittarius have dominion over legalities and justice that are prominent beginning this week and for weeks and months ahead. Mercury enters Sagittarius for several weeks opening Sagittarius energy of justice, the judicial system, courts, judges and sometimes law enforcement. It also governs higher education, teaching and teaching institutions as well as in-laws and anyone you know living at a distance from you making all these aspects of life active. Idealism and beliefs are strongly emphasized as you seek greater understanding. Libra has Mars transiting there for months with a retrograde motion midway before it leaves the sign in July, 2014 overall creating a long haul for legal matters. Its symbol the scales are not exactly the scales of justice but instead those of judgment making it important to be exact and have all involvement with such proceedings well in order. Mars is the impetus to take action and it stirs wherever it goes. If you know where Mars is traveling in your birth chart you will know more about how this personally affects your immediate environment and life. Naturally it sensitizes Libra itself and also the signs Cancer, Capricorn and Aries. These four signs are stirred with more activity and for some there is a sense of urgency. Mars can give new life to Aquarius and Gemini. The karmic implication is to gain understanding of bonds and the meaning of acquiescence. Giving way to the will of another may be what is best when seen in the light of justice that is Mercury in Sagittarius. The spiritual path and choice to exact understanding will help to work through karmic ties and any need to deal with issues. The more intimate aspects of relationships call for making an effort to see both sides and develop respect for another’s position. Mercury in Sagittarius is wonderful for in-depth philosophical discussions and commiseration though it may cause you to become lost in facts and think more optimistically than is the reality. With hope and enthusiasm you learn and gain much though keep in mind that divine justice will have its way. Each must come to terms with the reality that patterns are being restructured and redirected.
