Morning Star: Daily Astrology for December 4, 2014

This morning, we wake up to a Moon in Taurus and her current ruler, Venus, in overdrive. At 2:11 PM, Venus perfects in trine to her current ruler, Jupiter in Leo. That aspect is reinforced by a square from the Moon in Taurus to Jupiter at 4:13 PM and an inconjunct to Venus at 4:26 PM. Ok, there are going to be some people who take this glorious aspect and shower themselves selfishly with it. I don't see much wrong with being a little selfish as long as you don't get downright stingy with it refusing to share. Sharing is where the real fun comes in under this sky.

We will be prone to self-indulge. How much fun is it to wallow around in tandem indulgence? Some Taureans may look at that last statement in horror. Share? My stuff? I don't understand! Yes, Taurus, it's ok. Sharing is nice and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside much like your favorite blanket is all plush and fuzzy on the outside. Give it a shot. You never know, someone might share something equally nice with you.

Today people may be inclined to spend money. What? Haven't we had enough shopping? Yes, but we spent all that time shopping for everybody else. I want to sneak in one little bitty purchase for myself! Merry Christmas to me!

Folks, there is nothing wrong with treating yourself once in awhile ok? No matter how you do that. But, if you find that you have an abundance of something, share it with others. Reach out with generosity and benevolence toward your fellow human without hoarding it all to yourself. Reach for true comfort, not what it is we are told we need on TV. But, if you have some spare change rattling in your pocket and you want to use it to buy the newest version of the George Foreman Grill then, well, go for it.

By 5:30 PM the Sun is in trine to Uranus. This is a bit weird for a Taurus Moon to experience. We may be prompted to get up off the couch and socialize with our friends. Or, we COULD share our couch with our friends and, then, we don't even have to go out! There may be a community event that we are obligated to attend. We may be jolted out of our peacefulness through the disturbing equivalent of being poked by a cattle prod. Sun trine Uranus is not cumbersome. But, it sure can be disturbing to a Moon that likes things smooth and settled.

On a positive note, Sun in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries sounds like freaking fun to me! That aspect has the potential for adrenaline rush all over it. Too bad cows aren't really into adrenaline rushes. Just try to get one on a rollercoaster and see what I mean. The potential for adrenaline rushes increases as Mars finds his way into Aquarius at 6:57 PM. The air begins to crackle with excitement.

Some people will ride the incoming lightning bolts with enthusiasm. Others will be rattled and jarred by them. More, still, will satisfy all the energy in the sky by staying on the couch and connecting with Internet friends or indulging with a little online shopping. That certainly works for this.

All in all, what is key here is moderation. Indulge without over-indulging. Spend but don't over-spend. Bring a little common sense with you if you are seeking out an adrenaline rush. And, treat yourself without being overly selfish about it. Do, but don't overdo.

The barometer for “over-doing” waxes in overnight with the Moon's opposition to Saturn at 1:46 AM. Did I REALLY eat that whole pie all by myself? Yep. That's why you have a belly ache. Or it could be a restless night as we suffer from buyer's remorse in light of all the new debt we just accumulated. Or, we could feel guilty for hoarding all the Oreo's and not sharing even one (well, I wouldn't feel guilty about that, but, someone might). Or, if we keep things within the realms of good common sense and indulge gently and are generous at the same time, Moon/Saturn can bring a solid sense of satisfaction.

After the opposition to Saturn, the Moon is Void until entering Gemini tomorrow at 5:29 AM. The Moon is nearly full and as the Gemini energy waxes in, things become less steadfast and more windy and mobile. The volume in the sky is going to get turned up and there is a good chance of people trying to talk over one another and, well, the energy itself isn't heavy. But, it certainly is mentally busy, potentially loud and chatty (not to mention fickle, changeable and unpredictable). Get a solid night's rest tonight in preparation for that. Anchor your Christmas d├ęcor and hold on to your winter hat because things could get a bit windy.
