Target goals on December 4, but be aware tempers run short. High productivity on December 5 when one is mindful of potential distractions. On December 6, Neptune goes direct, which amplifies situations of confusion but also enhances creativity and therapeutic work.  

Weight of Words

This Hanukkah season on December 7 emphasizes balance. Finish tasks at hand December 8. Thoughtfulness benefits relationships December 9. The dark of moon December 10 enables clarity through emotional release. An anxious “to do” mandate December 11 is best directed to complete projects.

Startling revelations December 16 stimulate new pathways to connection. Inspiration leads to manifestation through committed partnerships December 17. Channel frustration into action December 18. Steps taken December 19 bring rewards; just be careful with communications and follow up, due to Mercury retrograde.

Envision a long view of your next six months to optimize that evening boost of energy at the winter solstice December 21. Settle into minimal effort the December 22 weekend: relax, savor and enjoy the gift of life. Awareness of the present moment December 23 can deepen appreciation of the arts, reflection on nature and sensual delights.
