2020 – a new decade begins! Do you have a sense of standing at the end of a long road and/or looking out for some distant horizon you can’t see but know is there? The year ahead warehouses several significant bigger picture planetary conjunctions. It is a year of endings of significance, but more importantly, 2020 marks the threshold of a new reality that will define the shape of things to come for many years to come.

December opens with both Mercury and Mars in Scorpio keeping motivation going strong. Completing a two-month extended stay (due to the recent retrograde) December 9, Mercury will leave Scorpio for a quick stint through Sagittarius (to December 28). The transit is well timed for putting a smile on it and all the extras that this time of year brings. (By all means, make sure to include yourself on the gift list and do something that makes you feel good about yourself.)
