The week after a SuperMoon in Gemini can feel full like an internal back-and-forth between what your mind and your heart wants, but the key is to get yourself aligned, and everything else will work itself out. Since this is also the first full week of Mercury Retrograde, the key to alignment is actually to take a look back at your past. Think back to what you wanted to accomplish this year. You still can make great progress if you pick up a past project and use your powers of discipline to make it come true. Monday – Wednesday, though, we’ll still be feeling the effects of the SuperMoon, so try not to do too much at once. The Moon will have shifted into Cancer, and you’re being advised to choose your projects intuitively. Don’t worry about what’s going to make you the most money, or even what’s due first. Just do what your vibration is telling you to do.
Once the Moon enters Leo mid-week, you’ll be feeling like the ultimate boss. It’s a great time to get your finances in order, especially since Saturn in Sag is about to leave our security and finance sector in a few weeks. It’s time for you to be pay attention to the way you think about money. If it’s been stressing you out, you may get to the root of why this week. Saturn in Sag these past 3 years have led to you dispersing your energies in so many different activities. You’ve been exploring so many passions and interests, and investing yourself in countless ways. It’s now time to rein in all of this exploration and focus on the areas that will help you create a solid foundation, while also helping you feel emotionally and financially secure. Use the energy of the SuperMoon to brainstorm what passion project you’re ready to focus on for the remainder of the year. Visualize yourself on December 31st, being satisfied with all the work you’ve done. Then work your way backwards to make it happen.
On Saturday, December 9th, Mars, the Planet of Action, leaves airy Libra and enters our sign until January 26! This is one of the most empowering transits that could take place this year, especially since Jupiter, the Planet of Abundance, is in our sign for the next 12 months. Having both Mars and Jupiter in our sign can make us feel invincible though, so make sure you rest up before Sunday so that you don’t deplete yourself. Avoid taking things to extremes, especially when communicating at work, at home, or with loved ones. Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius can make you speak before you think, and this can lead to you bluntly letting something out that you probably should have thought through. If you have to vent, do so with a therapist or your journal. Triple-check anything you tweet, email or communicate this week.
The best thing you can do with the Mars-Jupiter in Scorpio energy about to take over is quietly lay low and make money moves without drawing too much attention on yourself. While everyone else is freaking out about Mercury Retrograde, you can mentally already be in 2018 if you make the most of this cosmic energy. But before the magical manifestation, you do have to make sure you’ve purged mindsets and habits that aren’t beneficial to you. Do you procrastinate because you are afraid of the responsibilities that may come with you actually getting what you want? Take time this week to reflect on times when you self-sabotage purposefully. As a Scorpio, you’re all about regeneration, so you can consciously decide to create a new reality for yourself — one that supports your highest good. The way to make this decision is to simply show up for yourself. Take deep breaths regularly throughout the day. Fill yourself up with gratitude and self-appreciation. Reward yourself for minor accomplishments, as well as larger ones.
This week will be a blend of light-hearted action, and purposeful growth. On the surface, everything seems light and airy. But later this weekend, once Mars in Scorpio takes over, you’ll feel like a dormant volcano, ready to erupt at any moment. Romantically, Venus in Sag can help you let out your more social and flirtatious side, and this can lead to pleasant romantic encounters throughout the week. If you’re in a relationship, take time to do solo activities, because Sag energy craves independence and freedom. When you do reconnect with your lover, you two will find that the sparks between you have increased. If you’re not in a relationship, this is actually a great time to find closure regarding any past emotional wounds you’re still holding on to. That will make space for the type of romantic energy you’re seeking. And once Mars enters Scorpio on Saturday, you’ll be extra irresistible.
