As the effects from the Full Moon in Gemini on Saturday continue to unfold, you can begin to move on from a lack-and-limitation mindset toward one of prosperity and abundance! On Monday, Mercury will work with Saturn to give structure to your thinking. You won’t be able to stray from at least starting the process of making important decisions, mainly related to business matters. \nThe Winter Solstice on December 21st is the shortest and darkest day of the year. It takes place on the same day as the Sun enters Capricorn. In Astrology the Winter Solstice is seen as a time of deep reflection of this past year, and an opportunity to set intentions or manifestations on what we wish to achieve in the new year! Sun in Capricorn causes is to prioritize working on ourselves and focus on what actions need to be taken in order to live up to our personal goals or expectations. \nOn Friday the 24th, there is a fixed sign square aspect between Saturn and Uranus. This may not be the best time in terms of having things go our way, but if we are open to dealing with challenges then we will be rewarded with unexpected blessings. On Saturday, planet Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. Venus is currently in retrograde, which can be seen as a positive in this conjunction. The bonds in existing relationships may be intensely strengthened, and if single, new connections will be karmic in nature. Being open-hearted and allowing others to be themselves can result in forming a profound type of love and commitment. \n- Juliana M.
