During the next two weeks Mercury will be at the heart of a good deal of the planetary action, and its activity has implications for the months, if not years, ahead. On December 5th the Messenger will complete its latest series of mutable sign squares, with one to Jupiter, the next day it will head into conservative Capricorn, and finally, on the 17th, it will make the first of three trines to game-changing Uranus. Concurrently, Wednesday’s full Moon will take place at 16° Gemini 02′. Gemini is one of Mercury’s two homes and where provocative Mars is presently residing, and stirring things up. The confluence of mutable sign activity, including that Mars-charged full Moon, suggests the completion of a cycle. Mercury’s ingress, followed by Venus and the Sun, into cardinal Capricorn portends the initiation of a new phase. The Uranian aspect indicates a wild ride into yet unimagined worlds.
