Back-to-Back Crises — December 8-16 2021

The Moon in Aquarius is in a developing phase and sextile to the Sun and Mercury on Wednesday, then transits Jupiter in Aquarius with a trine aspect to Mars in Scorpio early Thursday. The lunar ingress to Pisces follows. Venus conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn extends over three days, as Venus slows to turn retrograde on Tuesday (December 14th). The Moon is in a harsh square aspect to the Sun, as it approaches the conjunction aspect with Neptune in Pisces on Saturday even as Saturn is approaching the square aspect to Uranus in Taurus. Problems could then reach a climatic crisis over the weekend.  On Sunday, the Moon in Aries is conjunction aspect to Chiron and sextile aspect to Saturn, helping to stabilize the situation leading to the Moon trine aspect to the Sun on Monday, as harmony is restored. Mars ingress to Sagittarius on Monday, and Mercury ingress to Capricorn, also on Monday, indicating a move from aggressive actions to diplomacy. The Moon in Taurus on Tuesday transits to the conjunction with Uranus late Tuesday (or on Wednesday in the eastern half of the globe). Economic reversals are one indication, as we adjust to a new economic era.
