Are you prepared for a week of passion, focus, and a chance to release whatever is no longer serving you? Then prepare your cold brew coffee and get ready for a week of motivation and positivity!
This week starts off strong with two major transits on December 13th – Aggressive Mars is entering Sagittarius, and communicative Mercury is moving into practical Capricorn. Let’s explore these transits before we move onto other energies you might feel this week!
Mars is the planet of assertive energy and aggression, and when it’s in fiery Sagittarius, you may feel more motivated and energetic than usual. Your decisions and actions, however, are more motivated by your ideals than logic during this time. Routine may feel more difficult to carry out, as you prefer a sense of spontaneity right now.
Mercury in Capricorn is a transit that amplifies your ability to focus, especially on the details of your career or profession. Your capabilities are heightened right now, making it easier than ever for you to get things done.
It’s a great time to take a look at your to-do list and see what you feel ready and able to tackle!
Finally, on December 18th, there is a Full Moon in quick-witted Gemini. While Full Moons tend to bring big emotions, the Airy nature of Gemini helps you see these emotional issues from an objective, thoughtful viewpoint.
Further, your communication skills and sense of creativity skyrocket during this transit.
There are quite a few major transits affecting our energy this week, but if you can find your balance and create a sense of centeredness within your spirit, you can turn this into the most transformative, opportune week of your life!
December 13 – 19 Is a Week to Gear Up, Get Focused, & Release
With Mars in Sagittarius and Mercury in Capricorn, you will find the motivational and intellectual boost you need to get this week started.
This momentum and mental clarity can help you realize what elements of your life are no longer serving you, allowing you to release them under the Full Moon in intellectual Gemini.
Pay close attention to your mental and emotional reactions this week.
- What feels like it’s not clicking?
- Which elements feel overwhelming?
Take advantage of the cleansing and illuminating energy of the Full Moon and set your intentions to release the situations, relationships, or habits from your life that are hindering you from your own personal growth and evolution.
If letting go feels hard or overwhelming, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to release what’s not serving you with confidence!
