Sagittarius season is in full swing, and while we are in the shadow period of Mercury in Retrograde, there is no need to stress yourself out yet. Today, December 5, 2023, is full of pragmatism and some decision-making, but the planets aren’t planning to leave you totally hanging. The Moon is in Virgo, giving our emotional realm a healthy dose of practical, realistic guidance as we interact with the world—but also some pressure to keep things on schedule.
Try not to be too hard on yourself because the Moon is forming a trine to eccentric Uranus in fellow Earth sign Taurus. This is a great day for flexing creative muscles and being more persuasive to accomplish what you want if you’re willing to switch up your approach and roll with the punches.
Additionally, Venus in Scorpio is forming a trine to stoic Saturn in Pisces—softening Saturn’s rigid approach every so slightly but also making today ideal for making long-term commitments and discussions surrounding what those look like.
