We are guided by our senses today in some manner — sensual pleasure and sensual gratification take us away from the heightened mental and intellectual activity that has dominated this week. For some, this may suggest a dissolute withdrawal or determined indolence. However, we may also see an increased focus on tangible creative activity. The overall focus on freedom to pursue our desires can lead to a belief that we have escaped the pressure and demands that this week has presented. However, that is not likely and we should not be fooled into believing that we can get away with irresponsible behavior or indulge in sensual pleasures without paying the price.
Holiday stress and a quincunx between the moon and Venus could make balancing emotions and partnerships difficult, so avoid getting snippy with your partner today.
You may also feel as though our self-care has been put on hold lately, so try to find small moments when you can connect with your breath and find your zen. This will be especially important for anyone in charge of arranging holiday meals or festivities, so be extra gentle with yourself if you’re carrying a heavy load of responsibilities.
Luckily, this energy begins to dissipate this afternoon as this aspect fades and is replaced by a supportive connection between the moon and Neptune. The atmosphere becomes less stressful and more dreamy, so don’t be afraid to relax and float away a bit.
If you’re celebrating the holidays, this is a great time to connect with any children in your family because you’ll be able to feel childlike yourself as you share the excitement they experience. Feel free to indulge in a little bit of playtime, and allow the lighthearted energy to spread throughout your household.
The moon continues its journey through Taurus until tomorrow, so take a minute to appreciate any gifts you may have received in the last few days, and enjoy as much delicious food as you can manage!
