I will keep this brief because no one has excess minutes this time of year - which is so odd because this is the time of year when we should be nesting and go within. When it is darker and colder we are programmed to be inward and more reflective. Oh well, another way we are out of sync with nature!
Venus went into retrograde on the Solstice - bringing her creative and loving energies inward. At the same time, Mars moved into the cardinal (action) sign of Libra. With Venus being less than forceful and Mars in full tilt - let's just say keep crabby Uncle Sam away from the rest of the family. There is too much energy out there that is unbridled and angry.
I hope the world keeps a lid on the anger through the new year.
Happy Holidays all!
