WEEKLY HOROSCOPES by Beverley
GENERAL PLANETARY INFLUENCES 12-18.12.2011
This week planets follow a very similar theme to last weeks, and don’t move that much, apart from the Moon of course, and some aspects formed. They are still quite ‘settled’ in the signs they occupy at present, so my apologies if the horoscopes have seemed so similar for a while. The Sun is now almost 2/3 of it’s way through adventurous, independent, philosophical Sagittarius, making us more broadminded, positive & tolerant, we may seek a reaction and need our personal freedom. The Moon starts the week in changeable, emotional, sensitive Cancer. Wednesday it moves into bossy, exuberant, melodramatic Leo. Saturday it moves again into responsive, querying, analytical Virgo, Last Quarter Moon there on 18th, it finishes the week there. Mercury is still in Sagittarius, it travels direct from Wednesday, giving a need for challenges & mental scope, maybe difficulty concentrating at times, but a broad-minded approach. Venus remains in loyal dutiful Capricorn, making it hard to express our emotions at times. Mars remains in detailed, hard-working, practical Virgo, until early next year, & can make us question our actions at times. The Generation Planets from Jupiter through to Pluto remain where they are till the end of this year at least, most of them for much longer, so their influence will be about the same in this section and in the last parts of individual sign readings. Jupiter remains in generous, sensible, humorous Taurus, until well into next year, giving a love of life, & creature comforts. It travels Retrograde now up till Christmas, enabling success in difficult situations. Saturn remains in courteous, fair-minded, pleasant, but serious Libra, through most of next year, & gives more flexibility. Uranus is now travelling direct in energetic, courageous, self-willed & proud Aries, with some rebelliousness, sudden, unexpected events or disruptive emotional matters, distract us away from our usual routine, or help us see things in a new light , and brings more balance. Neptune remains in humanitarian, idealistic, independent Aquarius, staying there until well into the New Year, with a need to remain realistic & find a balance. Pluto remains in Capricorn for the foreseeable future, showing knowledge gradually acquired on deeper levels, with balance. Planetary aspects this week are:- Sun & Saturn sextile – Deep understanding, with an awareness of personal limitations. Sun & Mars square – A need for more patience & forethought in some situations. Mercury & Neptune square – A need to use logical thinking if you become overly imaginative & expansive. Mercury & Uranus trine – Flashes of intuitive, accurate insight can prove helpful. Mercury & Jupiter inconjunct – Frustration trying to deal with other people’s problems. Venus & Saturn square – Possible difficulties or over-emotional reactions in relations with others at times. Venus & Mars trine – Generally an affectionate, congenial approach to other people. Jupiter & Neptune sextile – An imaginative, hopeful outlook. Jupiter & Pluto still trine – Good organizational skills, with resourcefulness. Saturn & Neptune remain trine - Creative idealism, with imagination & organization. Pluto square Uranus for some time – A need for independence, dislike of restrictions. Neptune & Pluto sextile long-term – Understanding & acceptance of world changes affecting everyone.
