As we delve deep into December, the Sun and Mars, both in the expansive Sagittarius, ignite a spark of adventure and thirst for knowledge, fueling our desires to explore and venture beyond our comfort zones.This week is not just about outward exploration, however. As Mercury retrogrades for the final time this year, it urges us to tread carefully when communicating. So, here’s a reminder to be kind this holiday season. And yes, you likely are forgetting someone on your list, so revisit that now with a fine-tooth comb.
Venus in Scorpio will intensify our desire to make connections and will encourage meaningful interactions. So, no debating “Happy Holidays” vs. “Merry Christmas” with strangers this year, OK? Better to find common ground and, when possible, dig deep.
This year, it seems that even while we’re living the festivals of lights with zeal, a pragmatic mood still reigns. That could mean a smoother sleigh ride than usual through December.
