As we attempt to find our way through this week, thoughts and communications will become confusingly muddled with the Mercury/Neptune sextile on Monday, December 14. Whether ideas and visions are derived from imaginative dreams or delusion; what we envision, will most likely be what we get – and run with.

As sensitivities and foggy misconceptions fill the air, what is communicated (and not communicated) may prove to be slippery, evasive and unreliable. This sense of ‘not really knowing for sure’ can stimulate an hungry appetite for accuracy and details with the Venus/Pluto sextile on Thursday December 17. From an investigative eye, intense interrogation or some extreme prying, we’ll be driven to get exactly what we’re searching for with this weeknd’s commanding Mercury/Pluto conjunction and a clumsy Mercury/Uranus square.

Cleverness is not wisdom. Euripides
