It’s the 49th week of the year which in numerology equals 4+9= 1+3= 4. The card of the week is the Hierophant. The Hierophant is a card of traditions and 4 is a number of stability but due to several difficult Mars transits this week, stability and tradition will be challenged. Social interactions have the potential to bring conflict but this conflict is necessary to see what areas of your life need growth and change.

Sunday 12/05/15 Empress
Moon in Libra
Moon Void of Course 6:03 PM
The card of the day is the Venus ruled Empress. The Moon is in Venus’ home, Libra, so there is lots of potential for immense creativity and appreciation for all things. Moon opposition Uranus at 12:37 AM PST, may bring impulsiveness and excitement but hold off on making any important decisions under this transit. Sun sextile Mars at 2:14 AM will recharge your will power. To get the most out of this transit, do physical exercise to heighten the benefits. At 12:47 PM PST, Mars square Pluto will bring high energy with the potential to transform. It’s riding on the back of that super charged Moon sextile Mars so the double whammy of Mars energy also brings with it the potential for violence. Avoid situations that could be chaotic and spend time in a peaceful place. Use the energy of the Empress and harness your creativity to help Venus calm her aggressive lover, Mars. Moon sextile Mercury at 6:03 PM will bring free flowing communication with others, so if any disagreements occurred earlier in the day, it will be useful to use this time to patch them up. The Moon is void of course so it’s an excellent time to end things, whether it be saying goodbye or saying I’m sorry. The number of the day is 8, a number of karma.
Mantra: Life isn’t about what you get out of it. It’s what you put into it.
Monday 12/7/15 3 7 of Swords
Moon Enters Scorpio
The card of the day is the 7 of Swords, a card of theft, trickery and deceit. It’s never good to be paranoid but it is good to be aware of your surroundings. The Moon enters the secretive, volatile sign of Scorpio at 3:26 AM PST. People may lash out in self-defense. Venus is also in Scorpio so if you’re not secure in your relationship, think twice before you point a finger at your lover. However, if you suspect something underhanded, it would be wise to observe every situation objectively. If you are the deceiver, you may be called out so be ready to own up to your treachery because there’s no use hiding any more. It’s only making things worse. Moon trine Neptune at 5:41 PM PST will tempt you to believe the illusions others create but if you stay grounded, you will be able to know the truth from deceit. The number of the day is 9, a number that signals a cycle is growing to a close. Take that lesson as you will.
Mantra: Cheaters never win.
Tuesday 12/8/15 9 of Wands
Moon in Scorpio
Moon Void of Course 10:39 PM PST
The energy that’s built with the shifting of the planets, especially Mars, over the past few days has made things a little tumultuous. So it makes sense why the card of the day is the 9 of Wands, a sign that you may be feeling like you’re reaching a breaking point. Traditionally, the card features a man with a bandage on his head. He’s taken a beating but he’s a strong warrior and he’s ready for battle even if he is a little bruised. Moon sextile Pluto at 7:48 AM PST may bring about hard truths in your relationships that are hard to swallow. But these discoveries are for the best because the transit that follows is Sun trine Uranus. This transit will help you approach these possibly difficult social encounters on with a flipped perspective and inevitably expand your life. Follow your intuition when it comes to the reactions you choose and use the Universe as your dance partner; don’t work against what it throws at you, just flow along with it. If you do this, you will be rewarded with a peaceful end to the day at 10:39 PM PST with Moon sextile Jupiter. The number of the day is 1, so make sure you get off on the right foot with the challenges presented to you today because it’s only the beginning. You’ve got some serious lessons to learn and some hard work to do on yourself to gain the freedom you dream you can do it. You’ve come this far, there’s no turning back now.
Mantra: This ain’t my first rodeo.
Wednesday 12/9/15 The World
Moon Enters Sagittarius 2:25 PM PST
Mercury Enters Capricorn 6:35 PM PST
The World is ruled by the great teacher Saturn who asks you, “What have you learned?” There are so many transitions happening now. Venus just moved into Scorpio, Mercury is getting ready to go into retrograde, 2016 is drawing to a close and today Mercury enters Saturn ruled Capricorn where it will stay until January 1st. While Mercury is in this sign, you will be able to focus on powering through challenges, especially ones that require an intellectual approach. Since it’s a good time to learn a new skill, set your intention for Friday’s New Moon today. Know that anything that you set out to learn now will not come quickly, but what you learn will be learnt well. The number of the day is 2, helping you find the balance.
Mantra: Take the scenic route and enjoy the journey.
Thursday 12/10/15 5 of Wands
Moon in Sagittarius
The card of the day is the Five of Wands, a card of struggles and meaningless conflict. Moon square Neptune at 4:06 AM PST will cause you to want to start the day surrounded by illusions. But Moon conjunction Saturn at 7:02 AM PST will remind you that taking this approach to the day will only leave you feeling isolated and lonely. However, choose your words wisely because you may find that the faults you find in others are actually a reflection of the faults within yourself. If possible, avoid people you have personality conflicts with because Mars opposition Uranus at 5:30 PM PST could bring low blows from rivals meant to take you down and keep you down. But there’s an interesting twist here. Venus trine Neptune at 10:14 PM PST will bring the potential for learning great lessons about having love and compassion for those who have harmed you. In fact, on a side note, this transit has the potential to bring soul mates together but since Neptune is involved, be aware that you could also decieve yourself in matters of love. It’s the kind of transit that will show you that the meaningless conflict that the 5 of Wands energy represents isn’t wroth your time. TMoon sextile Mars, also at 10:14 PM PST will take that compassion and turn it into action. It will give you the confidence that you need to win respect through display of confidence, courage and love. The number of the day is 3, a number of building new things.
Mantra: Be the change that you want to see in the world.
Friday 12/11/15 King of Swords
New Moon 2:29 AM PST

New Moon and Moon conjunction Sun at 2:29 AM PST makes today a great time to set new goals and plant new seeds, especially in the areas of intellectual pursuits. Moon square Jupiter at 8:06 AM PST will bring happiness and generosity to the evening. Moon enters Capricorn at 10:47 PM PST, bringing the barer of life’s lessons back to our corner of the classroom of life again. Over the next couple of days, you’ll come to learn more about what it means to live a peaceful, stable life. If you’re struggling, you will see what you need to change. If you aren’t, you will learn how to deepen the peace that you’ve found. The number of the day is 4, a number of stability.
Mantra: A stable mind makes for a stable life.
Saturday 12/5/15 The Page of Cups
Moon in Capricorn
Moon Void of Course 3:07 PM
The Page of Cups is the card for the day. The Page encourages us to turn to each other when we feel overwhelmed by life. It’s been a tough week with some difficult transits but we don’t have to face these challenges alone. Moon conjunction Mercury at 5:43 AM PST will allow you to open up about the concerns that you’re having. If you’re feeling alone and afraid, that’s OK, there are lots of other people who feel just the same way you do, and just like you, they may not feel comfortable speaking up. If you’re feeling confident and empowered, take the time to listen to those who come to you today and assure them that this is not going to last forever. It’s a day for students to turn to their teachers and teachers to help their students. Moon sextile Neptune will intuitively bring the words you need when reaching out to others today. Moon sextile Venus at 3:36 PM PST will enrich your evening with happiness, harmony and love. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming hardships.
Mantra: We’re in this together.
