The Astrologer Daily: December 19th, 2013
By Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Making practical plans for the future is strongly advised today. The security-conscious Cancer Moon forms a trine to responsible Saturn. Take this opportunity to make a budget aimed at paying off debts and building savings. This will involve leaving beneath your means, but that won’t be too difficult. It’s easy to be frugal when you have a specific goal to work toward. Of course, you should arrange to give yourself little rewards every once in a while. For instance, make a deal with yourself about reaching savings earmarks. Every time your bank balance reaches a new height, give yourself a little gift. Looking ahead, you’ll be putting certain relationships under review. Gentle Venus will go retrograde in practical Capricorn. Take this opportunity to assess which friendships nurture your soul, and which ones drain your energy. The Sun is at 28 degrees Sagittarius, the Moon is in Cancer, Mercury is in Sagittarius, Venus is in Capricorn and Mars is in Libra. With this combination of planetary energies try to: Repay your friend for all their help. Treat them to a fine lunch. Try not to: Force a breakup by being mean. Bad karma just doesn’t pay. Today’s exact aspects and their keywords are:
- Moon Trine Saturn: Make a Plan.
- Moon Opposite Venus: Feeling Oversensitive.
- Jupiter is retrograde.
And finally happy birthday to Jake Gyllenhaal, Alyssa Milano and Tyson Beckford. If it’s your birthday today, the year ahead will find you getting serious about your long-term prospects. Saving for a home or retirement are among the possibilities. If you’re single, there’s no reason you can’t put away some money for the future. Having a nest egg will allow you to be less dependent on a future partner. – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + –
