Mercury enters Sagittarius, Full Moon in Gemini

Mercury enters Sagittarius on Thursday, December 27. While crossing the border line between the water sign Scorpio and the fire sign Sagittarius, Mercury will be Gandant, i.e., severely weakened. Therefore Mercury significations such as Communications, The News, Business Transactions, etc. are unfavorable on Wednesday and Thursday.
Mercury in Sagittarius is the planet of Rational Mind, planet of Reasons, in an Independent, Willful Fire Sign. Sagittarius is the sign of Personal Truth and Self-righteous Opinions and will challenge anybody else's truth that does not agree. This is not a combination favorable for reasonable discussion or coming to consensus. Mercury will be in Sagittarius until January 15.
The Full Moon will be on Friday, December 28, @ 13 deg. Gemini. This marks the culmination of the energies of the Hindu month Margrasiras, named for the lunar sign Mrigrashira, which is normally a good month for enjoyments. But this year the Full Moon will be in the lunar sign Ardra, representing a more difficult energy pattern associated with stormy catharsis.
Venus is Opposite Jupiter this week, exact on Saturday December 22. The two benefic planets are therefore in mutual aspect, which can give False Hope, i.e., Promising More than Can be Delivered. This is more the case because Jupiter is compromised by being both retrograde and with Ketu. A recent example was all the maneuvering in the Federal Government over the "Fiscal Cliff," which ultimately ended up going nowhere.
