12/3  Full Moon in Gemini: Pay close attention to where you are in your cycle. How’s your energy? What do you feel?

12/3  Mercury, the Planet of Communication, Goes Retrograde: Surrender to your intuition.

12/6  Mercury + Saturn Conjoin: Embrace your inner sovereign. Set boundaries. Get clear on your commitment to yourself and others.

Hello, Empresses!

With the full Moon in Gemini happening at 11 degrees, this is not your average Sunday. Mercury stations retrograde today and Neptune, the planet of spirituality, squares the Sun and Moon, forming what astrologers call a T-square.

Today may feel cranky, so stay patient with yourself and others, especially your children.

Give yourself lots of space and keep a journal handy to write as much as possible to source intrinsic clarity and direction. Get outside under the moonlight and connect to the divine feminine. Pay attention to what’s becoming illuminated in your life and get ready to shed that which no longer serves you.

Also, notice what’s occurring in your body physically. Where are you in your menstrual cycle? How are your energy levels? And what do you need from a self-care perspective?

With the end of the year upon us and the holiday season in full roar, it’s easy to succumb to the hustle. However, part of managing your energy on behalf of your success requires staying full and charged.

So aim to manage your energy, not your time today. Especially with Mercury retrograde. More than ever, it’s essential to really listen to your intuitive and body guidance.

As the work week kicks off, tidy up unfinished business before diving head-first into your next chapter. Mercury, the planet that rules communication, now retrograde asks you to pay close attention to the details and tend to the mundane. Get clear on your goals for the week and don’t brush the details under the rug. Double-check your schedule for the week to make sure you feel prepared for what’s on deck. If you are traveling, buffer your schedule with plenty of time to arrive at your destination. Preemptively identify questions in advance and make sure you have all of the information you need in advance to navigate your week successfully.

On Tuesday, the waning Moon shifts into the sign of  Cancer. Simultaneously, Chiron, the wounded healer, also stations direct, meaning potent and pertinent emotions may rise to the surface. If so, allow them!

Chiron ushers you through the wound and into an elevated place of integrated wisdom. While its lessons might not seem welcome at first, when embraced they become profound teachings. So pay attention to whatever is requiring healing in your life.

Get curious. What’s emerging from the pain? Embrace healing.

When it comes to parenting, observe what’s happening with your children. How are they emotionally? What do they need?

Come Wednesday, Mercury in retrograde motion meets up with the great disciplinarian of the zodiac, Saturn – meaning, yesterday’s healing vibes continue.

On the homefront, this may mean you need to embrace the role of the disciplinarian. I know, this might not be your favorite place, but just remember as an Empress you have sovereignty, and this means establishing boundaries. With Mercury and Saturn meeting up at the same degree, lessons crystallize now. So, stay open, aware, and available to the messages and lessons emerging.

Over the weekend, Mars (the planet of action) moves into Scorpio. Now’s the time to prioritize your ambition when it comes to how you want to feel in your career and family. Take a lead from Danielle Laporte and get clear on how you want to feel!

On Sunday 12/10, the waning quarter Moon occurs in fastidious Virgo. With Mercury continuing its retrograde motion—consider what you need to release in your life. Ask yourself this: if life went as well as it possibly could, what would that look like? Then follow up that question by asking yourself what’s blocking you from actualizing that goal. Once you reach clarity on what you want and what’s holding you back from having it, decide what you are willing to change. Retrograde Mercury makes a luscious angle to Uranus (which rules breakthrough), so you have massive potential to bust through blocks today. Commit to releasing blocks.
