Astrology of December 8th, 2016: Big Damn Heroes or Conflicting Egos?


With the Moon’s entry into Aries having started the morning, our emotions and instincts have become bolder, faster, more eager to jump into situations head-first.  We want to be big damn heroes, and we want it now.  With the Moon in Aries sextiling Venus in Aquarius a short time later, those bold emotions have combined forces with a desire for the company of forward-thinking people and new situations.  This is a great time for bold new enterprises, so long as you don’t mind the potential to go a little overboard.  Today also is a day to be aware that in groups one is interacting with many different egos, and each is going to want to feel like the hero today.  As long as you are equally generous with the spotlight, it can be a time of fun and high spirits.

Case in point regarding egos, however; Moon in Aries square Mercury in Capricorn this afternoon may see some conflict between egos, as those brash bold emotions clash with the need for measured speech.  And if you’re not careful, your mouth may follow those emotions into a conversation that won’t do you any favors in the long run.  Open mouth, insert foot…  Mercury in Capricorn can be very concerned with details and precision, but may nonetheless err on the side of bluntness.  On the plus side, Mercury in Capricorn still maintains this cardinal earth sign’s concern for social order, so like a relay runner it may carry forward some of the socially-conscious energy from the Moon’s morning dalliance with Venus.  A little mindfulness may go a long way toward keeping tempers even this afternoon.
