FRIDAY, 12/17/2021

If we are able to quiet our minds enough, we may find a surprising new sense of confidence today. There is potential for transcendent revelations that help us to understand new patterns, structures, and frameworks that move us into new ways of communication. This may be seen through new contacts, interactions, or relationship dynamics. However, we need to stay focused on what we are actually seeing. It’s easy to get sidetracked if we are dealing with too many hidden hostilities or resentments — essentially keeping us focused on the past, instead of here and now.

The Gemini moon allows us to talk about our emotions with honesty and candor. This lunar aspect in the sign of the Twins connects softly with Saturn retrograde. It’s a time for us to embrace our passionate thoughts and take action around manifesting our dreams.

The good news is that Saturn in air sign Aquarius can give us the push to make our desires a reality. You could be feeling as though the weight of the world is on your shoulders. If you feel up to it, you might want to discuss any repressed feelings and upsets that you’ve been harboring. This will allow you to let go of the underlying pain that’s been keeping you from reaching your goals. Now is the time to let it all out.

You’ll learn that you must set limits with family and friends right now. It’s essential to set boundaries with those you love. In the past, you’ve been very generous with your time, but you want to give yourself some of that energy and extra TLC. Don’t feel bad about being selfish with your time. You deserve it, after all.

The good news is that Saturn’s presence urges us to take the high road and not use manipulative tactics (or let others do it) to get recognition in situations and relationships.
