Peak silly season

By Cassandra Tyndall

A new week brings a change in the Astro-weather. Action planet Mars arrives in Sagittarius, infusing the skies with a dose of enthusiasm and confidence. This once in every-two-years visit can bring a “more the merrier” vibe, especially as it coincides with the holidays and New Year period.

This time, Mars will also book end a chapter that started in May 2020 as it passes over the South Node. You might discover you don’t have the energy for the things you once did. A final purging or purifying process may see you focus on pursuits that inspire you or help you get in touch with your beliefs, philosophy and faith. Speaking of faith, this week might reveal a testing of sorts. Do you believe what you did two years ago? Are you striving for the same things? If you find yourself doubling down to avoid being seen to be wrong, you may need to consider a new approach.

This weekend’s Full Moon in Gemini is the peak of the silly season! Fun, frivolity and partying is promised, as jolly Jupiter smiles upon this lunation. Connections and conversations had now may point in the direction of bright new possibilities in the new year.
