Today's sextiles are in play now and carry us into the beginning of next week.

There are opportunities now (Venus in Scorpio sextile Saturn in Capricorn at 9 degrees) to stabilize a financial/partnership/resources situation. Think quality over quantity. Think rewards for hard work. Long term investing is favored. Disciplined spending and savings pays off. Putting the time and effort into a relationship will pay off. This is good energy to pay down/off debt or to start a savings plan. Relationships launched now could be long-lasting, security-focused or between a younger/older person. Think mentor. With Venus in Scorpio - people will be looking for a commitment.

What do you place enough value on to be able to commit to? Scorpian/Capricorn commitments are not easily untangled. Keep this in mind.

We show love through taking care of our responsibilities and honoring our obligations. Excellent energy for business dealings. Excellent energy for women to work with and step into authority now.

Venus rules love, money, our values, women and our self-esteem.

That sextile to Saturn (and sextiles are subtle) tells us the opportunities come through time and wisdom and doing the responsible thing with our resources/our valuables. There is a bigger picture we can be 'efforting' toward instead of bemoaning what we don't have (and I am not making light of what we don't have - Mars in Pisces has conjuncted Neptune and is heading toward Chiron - we are feeling our losses and they are not light).

The Sun is in Sagittarius. Jupiter is in Sagittarius. The blue skies are up there somewhere.

EXAMPLE for Libra/Libra Rising - Venus 2nd house, Saturn 4th house - this is the subtle (or not so subtle depending on your natal chart) stabilization between your money/resources and your home/roots. What you get out of this is going to depend on what you put in. Increased attention toward home/family can stabilize resources or stabilizing your resources (budget, goals, planning) can improve a home/family situation.

The Pluto/Mars sextile (again another opportunity aspect whose strength will depend on your natal chart) coming through 20 degrees Capricorn/Pisces is building today and exact tomorrow. This isn't a typical Mars sextile where we have to push for the opportunity. Mars is still in Pisces. We still aren't pushing (except me, last night, to remove some guy's elbow that was in my space at the movie theater).

The opportunity - and again this one is a stabilizing/sobering/lasting Capricorny thing - comes through letting Mars in Pisces be Mars in Pisces. Think sacred masculine. Think spiritual warrior. We let go. We use our intuition/imagination. We go with the flow.

EXAMPLE for Scorpio/Scorpio Rising - Mars 5th house, Pluto 3rd house - you are creating (5th house) what you are thinking/communicating about (3rd house). Of course, we all do this all the time, but the sextile between these power players - one personal planet and one outer planet - gives this more power now. Or words/communication with children/ a romantic partner are opportunistic. Use your verbal superpower wisely Scorpio.

In case I don't get back to the weekly tonight - heads up the Moon is in fiery Aries on MONDAY morning and combined with that opportunistic sextile between Mars and Pluto we should be feeling more energetic and ready to go. There can be some tension/frustration/maybe a power play/authority situation as the Moon squares Pluto - just keep focused on your long-term goals and the big picture - remember Saturn is in Capricorn and Jupiter is in Sagittarius - both time and luck are on your side now. Mars in Pisces says 'hold on loosely'. The Moon will trine the Sun in the evening - so the day should get better as we move through it. The Moon will go void at 2:21AM EST off a conjunction to a retrograde Uranus.

Get things done early in the week. We are building toward the Solstice which literally means the "sun stands still" and a Full Moon in Cancer. It is rare to have them both at the same time and then the next New Moon in two weeks is going to be an eclipse!

January is going to take off like a rocket.

For now take some time to recharge, get enough rest and extra sleep, get out in the Sun whenever possible. Going to do a big post on the year ahead as soon as I finish shipping holiday orders.
