Happy New Year to all – I wish you a happy, safe and successful 2019!
Now, for the last week of 2018. We start the week with Mars entering the sign of Aries, a sign that it rules, amping up the energy levels just in time for the revelries.
On the 3rd, Mercury trines retrograde Uranus, bringing new ideas and revolutionary viewpoints.
On the 4th, the Sun sextiles Neptune, bringing out our more sensitive and idealistic sides. This is followed a few hours later by Mercury (communication/thinking) entering the sign of Capricorn making us more pragmatic. Enjoy the daydreaming while you can.
This is followed on the 5th by a partial eclipse of the Sun (New Moon) at 15° Capricorn. Those with natal planets at 14° to 16° degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries are more likely to feel the effects of this eclipse. For those that feel the impact of this eclipse, there may be some correlation between what happens at this time and events of 18 years ago.
On the 6th, Uranus stations direct and will soon resume its trek back through the last degrees of Aries and will return to the sign of Taurus in March.
At the time of Uranus being stationary, the Moon will come up to square it, so emotions may be a little unpredictable and seem to come out of nowhere at this time. Mercury will also be coming up to make a square to Mars at this time as well, making arguments and disagreements more likely.
All times Central Standard Time (CST).
