On December 6, fiery Mars in Scorpio will sextile Pluto in Capricorn. As with all Martian planetary aspects, we will feel this energy both in the days leading up to and after its exact link. This will give us a tremendous amount of passion to tackle our goals and assert ourselves in the pursuit of our ambitions. A great deal of progress can be had if we are to funnel this endurance into a focused course of action. Also, this will enhance our sexual magnetism, giving us an air of irresistible authority.
December 7 will bring Mercury in Sagittarius into a square with Neptune in Pisces. This has a weakening effect upon our minds, as we are cast beneath a fog. Deception is quite possible now—to ourselves or to others. It is best to table discussions to another day, as we are not thinking clearly.
December 8 will cause Mars in Scorpio to square Jupiter in Aquarius. This larger-than-life energy is somewhat like a double-edged sword, as we can certainly achieve major success and fortune by asserting ourselves through action. However, this energy can also manifest in the form of accidents, injuries, and falls from grace if we are too impulsive and cocky. Practice moderation and burn off some of the extra energy with a hard fitness routine.
