Weekend Love Forecast – Can You Guess What I Truly Want?

packagesAll weekend, Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus retrograde in Aries. Saturn sextiles Jupiter and trines Uranus, and the Sagittarius Sun moves through a conjunction to Saturn. The Sun squares Chiron. Love, partnership, gratitude on one side… independence, action, brotherhood, and community on the other…

The two cardinal sides of the equation find balance, opportunity, and precision of execution in Saturn in Sadge. The Sun signifies purpose and pinpoints the mortal, daily application of the concepts. The emphasis is on expanding the construction of appropriate boundaries and learning a new way of life among them. Chiron pops in for some seasonal salt stroking and wound poking. It wouldn’t be December without painful reminders!

They’re there because they happen, because life. But they’re also there to promote the formation of a system that can handle such things.

Venus and Mars are in Aquarius ruled by Uranus. Both in air the aesthetic and action here are highly idealized in a clean, mental way. A high minded, theoretical ideal.

Mercury in Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. The mind, communications, and attitudes are at play. Discussion and decision making are earthy and tactile, fact based. Mercury sextile Neptune brings in connection, imagination, and fancy, but the bottom line is based in reality.

The Sun in Sadge all hooked up with those slower moving planets is where we mortals meet in the middle of wildly diverging influences – and yet we are able to tie them together and keep on going. We can even enjoy it! Sadge ego is big and fiery and rolls with the punches – even pops up and laughs at the end. It expands – like pie pants for the concept of self.

Friday night, the Aries Moon kicks off a wall of Mars with a booster of outer planet propellant. It’s a great night for socializing and getting out and about. It’s particularly great if you’re not personally feeling needy. If you are, be prepared to be jostled. Remember it’s not personal. People are moving and shaking! Keep perspective.

For the quieter among us, it’s people watching season. You can also be the fly on the wall… or the two person picnic, watching the melee. Bring popcorn.

Saturday night, the Moon in Taurus shifts the collective mood measurably. It’s a slower pace, just right to take in the finer things… of which there are many. Taurus is, however, at odds with Venus and Mars. What is wanted and actively pursued (in general) is out of step with what easily satisfies. The person who wants one thing and gets the other will not be satisfied with what they got.

If I want Belgian chocolates and I’m given a gift membership to the ACLU, I might pout. It’s not that I don’t want the membership, or even appreciate it… it’s that it’s not what I’m CRAVING. And vice verse. If I give my sweetie chocolates when he’s on a diet, how lousy is that? If doesn’t matter what the intentions are; the result is a sad sweetie. Which is really too bad on a Taurus Moon night when the possibilities are so sweet! Ask. Clarify.

It’s best to remember this clash is temporal and ends quickly. If something doesn’t hit you right, move on. Tomorrow is another day and another mood.

Intuition is on high this weekend, but communication – telling your truth and listening for the truths of others – is still extremely important. There’s a lot of nuance at play. There’s also a wonderful opportunity to increase genuine intimacy through authentic interaction.

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want…

Saturday night the Taurus Moon trines Mercury and sextiles Neptune. Pay attention and get connected. By Sunday morning, the Moon moves onto the point of a yod with Jupiter and Saturn-Sun. If you listen carefully and pay attention to the signs, you’re set to imprint emotionally with a fresh and lasting paradigm for satisfaction and purpose.

Ideally our goals reflect what’s best for us but also what feels like the right path. It must satisfy. Sunday is that touch point. Pay attention to how you feel, to what feels rich and satisfying but also in tune with your goals and your values. The Moon trines Pluto as well. It’s a feeling of power, of transition and the recognition of healthy desire.

Do you enjoy choosing presents for others? How well do others choose presents for you?

  1. Thanks, Satori!
    Rereading these posts, throughout the weekend, different phrases will pop for me. Right now, it’s this: “Pay attention to how you feel, to what feels rich and satisfying but also in tune with your goals and your values.” 🙂

    • I bet it turns out great for you! It’s only a challenge, and challenges can be bested. It’s also merely a background energy and you own placements play out in it. For example, I have the Moon square Venus aspect natally, and no doubt it’s a drag at times. It’s a challenge and a person gets tired of a constant challenge with Moon and Venus. THIS square, however, HELPS me. The Moon trines my Moon and the Venus sextiles my Venus (widely, but it’s there). So maybe someone else’s challenge becomes my ease and opportunity. Maybe my unusual tastes mean that there’s a perfect bargain on something only I would treasure! You never can tell how these things will play exactly, so it’s good to go in with flexible hopes – as in: I bet we’re going to have a great time regardless of any challenges!

  3. In answer to your gift giving question, I always look to a person’s Venus placement. Personally, I am a Virgo Venus – I like to receive practical gifts.

    • I am bit embarrassed to admit that I like fine jewelry and electronics but I also love books books books and music. My most craved gift every year, however, is the mega pack of toilet paper from Costco. Best gift ever. It has the additional benefit of not having to brave crowds for another three months.

  4. Hi Satori! We had our Office Holiday Party on Thursday. I wonder what was going on then because it was the best party EVER!
    This weekend I’m having lunch at a local foodie haven with a real at or. Trying to decide what to do with the house I inherited this last March. Interesting because Taurus energy is about security and possessions on one level. I will take note to “pay attention” : )

  5. My Apple iPhone keyboard is Spain in the a**. : / I forget to edit but I don’t see these weird changes until it posts.that was supposed to read “Realator “.
