Consistent, persistent, insistent. Once your determined Mars ruler turns direct in the stubborn sign of the Bull, there's no telling how far you'll go to fulfill your No. 1 goal. After 10 weeks of cooling your heels while Mars was retrograde (with Mercury also in reverse), it's time to turn up the heat, preferably without burning any bridges. Although it may come with its own set of rules, you can count on steady support from a family elder. The same goes for colleagues with a similar vision of a brave new world to yours.
You'll have about a week to get a sense of how Venus transiting Aquarius will affect your career before it turns retrograde on Christmas Eve. Your ruling planet leaves prudent Capricorn on the 15th only to return for New Year's. But don't confuse your willingness to contemplate a more idealistic Aquarian future with a dilemma over a financial matter, i.e., where the money is coming from and where it is going to go. That issue comes to a head midmonth during the dual-focused Gemini full moon. P.S. Read for Aries.
The weekend should be pleasant, even downright pleasurable, as your Mercury ruler and lovable Venus form a harmonious bond. And after Mercury enters Sagittarius, your cosmic complement, on Monday, someone you met at Halloween could resurface. However, you may have to make a difficult choice during the Gemini full moon, not only because of the dualistic nature of this (for the Twins) emotional moon, but because the demands of "off it or save it" Pluto are stronger now than at any other time of the year. No hedging your bets, no compromises.
The annual Gemini full moon could be the most confusing one of the year for Crabs, who usually navigate the highs and lows of emotional waves with ease. Because the vibes the Twins emit are often in flux or cancel each other out, the Moon Child might not be able to decide in which direction things are heading. That this full moon occurs in your 12th house of what is hidden and unknown, the cosmic dues you're paying can add to your sense of befuddlement. Concentrate instead on work and health issues and what you'd be better off eliminating.
Mars in your career midheaven goes direct on Friday, so what didn't happen over the past 10 weeks may suddenly become important again. But with affectionate Venus in your Aquarius house of partners, will you care about anything other than who wants you now? Although Venus doesn't stay past New Year's, she will return in March. So enjoy the pleasure of having good-looking, sociable people around for the holidays, even if it means you can't pay enough attention to a loved one who's tugging at your heartstrings.
Momentum picks up now that energetic Mars in Taurus, a supportive earth sign, is facing forward again. Whether you intensify your search for investment money and access to other people's resources or opt for a trip through unexplored territory depends on the decision you'll arrive at after the Gemini full moon illuminates the full range of your options. However, it's possible that you'll change your mind after retentive Pluto is persuaded to release its grip on a long-standing family matter. A reconciliation or revenge?
Midmonth would be the ideal time to begin your holiday vacation, but if you can't take off by the light of the Gemini full moon, use it to read maps by. The polarity between curious Gemini and educated Sagittarius can fine-tune your fascination with what you don't know and what you have yet to experience. But if you must hang out at home, try to show more interest in a neighbor's, your sibling's or a classmate's affairs. Right now, you can alleviate some of their anxiety without having to play Lord or Lady Bountiful.
This could turn out to be a red-letter week as, first, your Mars co-ruler goes direct after months of reconnecting and reconsidering. That this shift of gears occurs in your Taurus house of partners should make any change of heart that much more meaningful. Although the Gemini full moon???Sagittarius sun opposition may bring a financial matter to a head, it is the sun's conjunction with your coercive Pluto co-ruler that'll present an excuse to tip the scales in your favor. The Scorpion stings, the Eagle soars!
