Hello, everyone.

This week should be pretty smooth, once we get past Monday.  No planets change sign, we’ve got a waning Moon, and Hanukah begins on Friday at sunset.

Monday

Monday features two transits to Mercury.  The first is Mercury’s annual conjunction of the planet Pluto.  We’ve been examining Pluto in Capricorn a lot in this blog – turmoil and renewal in the business, economic, and governmental structures of our lives.  (For more on Pluto in Capricorn, see category at right.) With the Mercury conjunction you may finally understand the extent to which this Pluto transit is affecting you.  Serious conversations could ensue regarding the nuts and bolts of your business:  controls, inventory, sales, and IT could come under scrutiny. 

Late on Monday Mercury in Capricorn will square Saturn in Libra.  This will bring even more mental focus into your day.  You may be required to compromise as you look to business relationships and alliances for the systems and structure you need.

Thursday

On Thursday, the Sun in Sagittarius trines Mars in Leo.  This brings motivation and problem solving capability.  If expansion is on your mind, today you will feel the urge to take action and make it happen.  The themes of the day are initiative, decisiveness, and accomplishment.

Friday

HanukahHanukah begins at sunset on this 25th day of the lunar month of Kislev in the Jewish calendar. This Festival of Lights commemorates “the miracle of the container of oil.”  From Wikipedia:

According to the Talmud at the re-dedication following the victory of the Maccabees over the Seleucid Empire, there was only enough consecrated olive oil to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days, which was the length of time it took to press, prepare and consecrate fresh olive oil.

If you celebrate Hanukah, have a blessed festival of lights.

 

Let me know how your week goes.
