Astrology of the Day – Moon in Scorpio - Wednesday 13th December 2017

The Moon continues on it's journey through the latter degrees of Libra this morning and we once again feel the need for a sense of fairness around us. We also need to relate with others and to make contact with people, and to keep an orderly and peaceful regime.

The worst tendency of this Moon is to sit on the fence, and not to make any decision because we can't make our minds up but this won't be the case as the Moon opposes Uranus early on today as we know that we will want to act a little differently. At the same time the Moon forms an inconjunct aspect to Chiron, so there is a need to rebel and to go against the grain. Chiron in an inconjunct can be a little hurtful, and our desire to stick to our position, no matter how outlandish it may be may cause hurt or to offend others. You may be the one who has to put up with someone being totally intransigent, and this may cause you discomfort.

The Moon later on this morning makes a sextile to Saturn sitting in the very last degree of Sagittarius. Saturn takes on extra weight and significance here on the anaretic (29th) degree of Sagittarius. All planets reaching this point of no return indicate a sense of completion in regards to the lessons it has made you learn during the transit through the sign. Emotionally in this connection we will be certain about a relationship situation or how to proceed in regard to finances and our values. I think the phrase that comes to my mind is that you'll be able to put these things finally in perspective.

The Moon then moves into the sign of Scorpio. We will be much much more decisive now, willing to put our selves on the line if it means that we will eventually succeed. The overriding sense now is that we must survive and we will do anything in our power to do so. There is a requirement to control what is going on, and for us to set the drum beat to which we march. Marching is what we will do as the Moon makes contact with Mars, itself just into the sign of Scorpio. Here is emotional urgency not only to act but to do things either very overtly, or very secretively. We will be wanting to make an impression and we will upset others to get our way if necessary, we won't compromise or budge from our aims, and if someone prevents us from achieving them we will respond directly or even aggressively. There is tension as the day ends, and my advice is to keep yourself busy on your agenda to divert your attention.
