The sky does indeed reflect the conflict abundantly, a validation not only of astrology but of the importance of this week, as lawmakers vote to uphold the rule of Constitutional law.
Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday December 11th– Venus is in a conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) to Saturn in Capricorn lending a softer view of the strict Saturn, strong in its rulership sign. The imposing of a harsh rule is modified concerning justifiable circumstances. Mars in Scorpio in a trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) to Neptune in Pisces, seeks to diffuse the issues at hand, or to eliminate distracting elements and focus on the most critical offences. Neptune is the focal point of a t–square, as the Moon in Gemini approaches the opposition aspect to the Sun. Neptune’s placement is central to the day’s actions. Neptune in Pisces is a ruler and final dispositor. As a purveyor of conspiracy, the challenge to align discussions to theory is indeed difficult. The Sun in a semi-sextile aspect (30 deg, slight) to Saturn and Venus lends support to maintain focus as well as to solidify the tolerance in the framework or the process. The Full Moon overnight brings the impact of the day into focus.

From the Full Moon, the Moon transits into Cancer late in the day, retreating into a self-protective mode, and an opposition aspect (180 deg, polarized) to Jupiter in Cap.
