Jupiter Squares the Nodes, Venus into Capricorn Conjunct Saturn | the only thing between us and our heart's desire is ... Santa Claus? getting serious about what we are worth

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Today we have Santa Claus (Jupiter) in Scorpio squaring the North Node in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius.

There is a situation that needs to be worked through before we move forward. It could seem bigger than it actually is though. The Node action this year has been moving us toward our heart and the people/situations/things we love/are proud of/need to make center stage (Leo) and away from life's distractions, detachment, outgrown groups, escapist technology and the ways we fade into the background (Aquarius).

With Jupiter in murky Scorpio there could be a deep revelation now or some kind of muddy sticking point we need to get over, around or through.

Tomorrow (Merry Christmas) Venus (love, money, our values, self-esteem, beauty) moves into Capricorn and bumps right into Capricorn's ruling planet Saturn. And Venus is Saturn's daughter.

Nothing screams FAMILY REUNION like this one.

Gatherings, especially between younger and older people (or Libra/Taurus and Cappy-oriented folks), could be a bit more serious or traditional than usual, but maybe also more stable and practical.

We could be feeling safe and secure like we have just been tucked in at night with a hot cup of cocoa and our favorite footed pajamas

or maybe that snuggly feeling is a bit TOO much and that warm, fleece blanket is more like a straight-jacket?

We could be the one standing there like Ralphie in that bunny suit waiting for someone else to give us permission to slip it off.

The best way through any rough spots - just take responsibility (Capricorn) for what you are worth/bring to the table (Venus) - don't forget the green beans if you are supposed to bring the green beans and don't get into the damn bunny suit in the first place.

Money/resource issues could be finalized now. Boundaries will be set. Commitments (love and financial) will be made. I would expect lots of marriage proposals this holiday season!

After the holidays Venus in Capricorn will be about us getting serious with what we really value and who and what we are allowing to consume our precious resources. Some people, especially women, could be feeling the effects of time over the next few weeks.

Habits that corrode our resources (including our self-esteem) will need to be worked through. Capricorn loves work though so we will be up to it! I have warned against over-spending - winter is here - please take this seriously.

The stuff that has been just floating around our perimeter will insist on being MADE REAL. Venus in Capricorn, an earth sign, is excellent for manifesting (through time and work) what we WANT.

Saturn nearby will make this "building something that lasts" energy even more potent. We'll talk about this after the holidays.

First we need to get past Santa Claus today.

And you know he has been really packing in the holiday cookies and could be an even larger roadblock than usual to bypass.

Just remember - and get the kids out of room for this one - his girth is no more reality than the planet Jupiter itself which is made entirely of gases.

Issues could seem bigger than they actually are now. Or maybe we are just expecting too much. Problems and delays may cut into our plans a bit, but maybe the plans were just too BIG to begin with? Things don't have to be all or nothing.

A 'no' now might really be a 'not just yet'.

Our faith can get us through here. In some space in our life less is more now ...

xo and Merry Christmas Eve!
