Start a home improvement project this weekend, but don’t try to talk anyone else into joining, just make it look like fun. We could feel both positive and restless, dealing with some emotional discontent and longing underneath that can either create sadness, provoke relatives, or inspire us to improve our world through an act of creation, aesthetics, or compassion.

With this discontent we could come up with spontaneously wonderful ideas, but let’s think it through before we launch in. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all in restless Sagittarius with activating Mars both retrograde and out of bounds in nervy Gemini can really lower our impulse control.

Sagittarius energy is usually remarkably open-minded, compassionate, if radically frank and honest, but hidden within every sign, planet, or placement is the seed of its opposite. The shadow side of Sagittarius can be to believe one’s own story so it doesn’t sound like a lie, or to engage in an odd impulsive reckless selfishness in the name of self-expression.

A lack of impulse control could just mean we reach for that one extra piece of pie or tell off Aunt Martha, but with Mars so challenged right now- this can go deeper and trigger an explosive revelation or action on a violent fantasy.

Another long-standing challenging and destabilizing aspect were now wrestling with, Saturn (symbolizing stability) and Uranus (change) squared each other in 2021, parted, and came back within a degree of the exact square in October. It is tapering off but still affects us, particularly when the Moon sets it off. Last Tuesday night the Scorpio Moon formed a tight T-square with Uranus and Saturn as another gunman shot up a Walmart in Virginia.

We can destabilize in both productive and challenging ways. We can change the status quo and improve the situation. Recently the tectonic plates have destabilized and triggered a series of small earthquakes, with a few larger ones. We can hope that so many small quakes will prevent the buildup of tension for major one. Use this metaphor in politics and in our lives, those correcting shifts can prevent major rests. But a destabilized, impulsive person with a gun will continue to be a real danger this month.

So let’s stay grounded and keep our hearts open and considerate. Take a deep…
