The Sun continues to shine tropically in bright and sunny Sagittarius as we light our homes with color and deck our halls with greenery. The holiday lights outside and inside homes bring out the joy. Let the holiday festivities begin! Mars continues in its exaltation in Capricorn for a few more days tropically, until mid-week December 4. Mars in Capricorn is capable of great work, so use these next few days to capitalize on its gifts of productivity and efficiency. This week is full of benefic, imaginative energy that bursts with opportunities and possibilities. Make the most of it! The Pluto-Uranus square is tightening up toward its 6th of 7 exact squares, the next one being December 15. We have a lot of powerful energy available through the end of the year to help us make positive changes and to energize our lives.
Sunday contains a variety of different energies and themes. The morning is energetic and creative, and initiative is encouraged. The Moon is then Void-of-Course from 12:47 to 5:14 PM Pacific Time, so during this time read, hang out, watch a ballgame, putter, decorate, or play music. Then when the Moon moves into Aries Sunday evening, it’s time again to ignite your enthusiasm. You might want to get something ambitious started on your holiday “to do” list, as the energies run counter to our tendencies to relax and reflect on Sunday evening to close a long weekend and to get ready for the coming workweek. Create glow in your life from a fire or by lighting candles for inspiration and internal transfer. Turn off the TV and let music carry you through a project.
Monday and Tuesday the Moon is in fiery, action-packed Aries, where it is bold and assertive. Monday is a sharply dynamic day. A Mars-Saturn sextile will help ground the day’s dynamic energy and enable us to tackle big projects and get a lot accomplished. Tuesday glows with generosity and optimism. Extra confidence and optimism enables us to take worthwhile risks and to actualize that which seems an unlikely “reach.” Yes. We Can!
Wednesday and Thursday the Moon is in Taurus, its sign of exaltation tropically. All things sensual are highlighted. Uplifting aspects from the Moon to Neptune and Pluto energize our imagination and vision for what is possible. Wednesday is a great day for dreaming and then grounding those dreams in concrete plans. Thursday is a beautiful, glowing day full of possibilities and perhaps some wonderful surprises. A Venus-Jupiter trine is as good as it gets with planetary alignments showering blessings upon us. The Sun trines Uranus: an aspect that brings invention and breakthrough. Mars moves into intelligent, innovative Aquarius. A Moon-Saturn opposition in the evening helps ground this exuberant energy of amazing possibilities. Thursday is a day to anticipate and utilize to the utmost.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday are characterized by curiosity and a flow of imaginative ideas from a Gemini Moon. Friday calls for energized, creative conversations and unconventional thinking. It can deliver excellent problem solving and surprising breakthroughs. Be open, collegial…even iconoclastic to call in the amazing possibilities of this day.
Saturday sports a Full Moon (Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Gemini). This Full Moon is full of delicious positive aspects such as a grand fire trine, and sextiles from the Moon to Uranus and Jupiter which may foster bold, intelligent possibilities. Step out of your usual comfort zone and open up to alternative or expansive ways of being.
Sunday the Moon is VoC all day until it moves into Cancer Sunday evening at 9:34 PM Pacific Time. In addition to the meandering energy of a Moon VoC, there is the dreamy aspect of Moon-trine-Neptune. This is a day to relax, get inspired, and create. Say no to shopping: you will not make good decisions. Decorate your home, write some holiday greetings, or read a good book. Call your siblings. Take your neighbors a holiday treat.
The Week in Short:
Sunday: Varied day. Energetic morning. Meandering Moon VoC afternoon. Enthusiastic evening to “fire” yourself up.
Monday: Bold, dynamic, sizzling day to get a lot accomplished.
Tuesday: Benefic day full of generosity and optimism.
Wednesday: Vision and imagination combined with resourcefulness results in manifestation.
Thursday: Glowing day full of potential—breakthrough, invention, and possibilities abound. Make the most of this special day!
Friday: Excellent problem solving and breakthroughs possible. Be conversant, open, and experimental.
Saturday: Full Moon with bold, expansive possibilities.
Sunday: Meandering day limited by VoC Moon. Decorate. Relax. Read. Call siblings.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet and before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. You will more easily get lost or meander if you’re trying to get somewhere.
The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
Exact Void-of-Course Moon times for the month ahead (one lunar cycle) are:
