We are more attracted to ideas and philosophies than to the practical applications of language now. This is mental Mercury's first full day in adventurous Sagittarius on a visit that lasts until December 24, activating our tendency to think expansively. Our inclination toward learning increases, but we must be careful that we don't become too self-righteous in our beliefs. Meanwhile, the controlling Capricorn Moon helps us focus on what's real.
If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. - Deepak Chopra
The new moon at 11 degrees Sagittarius on Dec. 2 makes a helpful trine relationship to friendly Uranus. This combination is great for social events, meeting new friends, exploring new groups & organizations, and trying new things that take you beyond your comfort zone.
However, it is not the most lasting energy since this party energy doesn't like to sit still for too long. That means that new friendships, relationships and organizations need to go through the test of time to see if they will continue into all of the retrograde planetary energy in early 2014, or are they meant to send you beyond your limiting box to widen your world view.
Do have some fun because early December is much more enthusiastic than the second half of the month. That doesn't mean the end of the year holidays are bad, just that they are mixed energy where part of you wants to participate in the world, and a part of you wants your solitude.

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the "universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few people near us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. - Albert Einstein
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. - Melody Beattie
