A very productive Monday that Saturn built

When Michelangelo envisioned his beautiful sculptures there among the quarry rocks, he could have just languished in the reverie of his vision. But fortunately Saturn put a chisel and wheelbarrow in his hands, and Michelangelo chipped a lot of rock! Today’s a great day to bring practical form to your most imaginative ideas. That’s art.

The Libra Moon rules Monday, December 19, 2011.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
If you have a job to do that requires mental concentration (like untangling 30’ of Christmas lights!) today’s the day to do it. You may feel a little sentimental as events reawaken a memory. But by evening Venus has lightened up your outlook with imaginative daydreaming. Think of all the possibilities 2012 might hold...

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Everybody works on Monday! This is an especially great day for concentrated tasks (your forte) and pulling together a plan. You might be drawn to a few sentimental memories that put a serious edge to your mood. Remember the stars are encouraging a progressive uncovering of your heart’s desires. By evening Venus lifts you onto her pink cloud for a trip to imagination station.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Get the tedious jobs done early, and then you can relax into the evenings dreamy mood. The day is going from concentrated hard work through the afternoon hours, to an evening of artistic dreams. If you can grab the overall pattern, you’ll put realistic form to a vision that has just been floating around in your head until now.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Taking care of business and working overtime! This morning starts out as a no frills day. You have a lot of discipline and concentration that is perfect for good planning. Set your course for the week. Venus will sweeten the evening with imagination. You feel affectionate and supportive with your friends and family. Just look forward, not back.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Venus will try her hardest to lighten up this somewhat gloomy Monday, but she’s got her work cut out for her--as you do. It’s a serious day for some serious concentration. Lots of energy available for organizing and taking care of anything related to the structure of your life. Later in the evening, you imagination gets a lift. You find yourself with sweet dreams birthed from a vivid imagination.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Nobody carries the weight of the world on their shoulders better than you--your posture is impeccable! This Monday begins on a no-nonsense note, perfect for planning and balancing the budget. You’re capable of organized mental work. Careful with the seriousness though--a trip down memory lane could prove depressing. Eyes forward. Tonight’s loaded with expansive, vivid dreaming.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’re in the mood to get down to business. You can see the plans you’ve made coming together in an orderly way. You have focus and serious concentration. Stay away from the scrapbook of memorabilia--you too likely to attach guilt or gloom to it. By evening there’s a lighter, affectionate mood from Venus. Paint a beautiful picture in your mind, then step into it. 2012 is still a blank canvas.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
It’s time to organize the sock drawer, clean out the in-box, and perhaps pay those bills. Serious concentration is yours today. Finish the mundane tasks by afternoon, and then allow some time for fertilizing your imagination. Stay away from those melancholy memories--your mood is already serious enough. Later in the evening Venus uncovers some beautiful vistas. Visualize the new dream you want to be the truth for you.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Busy bee time, but you feel like getting stuff organized today. If you keep the seriousness at bay, you can accomplish a great deal. Shake off any pessimism by looking forward. The evening will bring a lighter note with nebulous Neptune floating around some wonderful daydreams. You horizons lift and your load feels much lighter. Make a note of the fertile dreams in store tonight.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
You are already among the hardest working of the zodiac signs, Virgo being your only competition, but today you’ll get down to serious business. Time to close the deal. Perfect day for it. Your organizational abilities are excellent. You’re focused and determined--not just to have it your own way, for that can be lonely, but to include others in your plans. Toward the evening hours you’ll get a shot of encouragement for your imagination. You can keep your goals realistic, and be inspired by your highest vision for yourself.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
It’s a fabulous day for organized mental work. Your concentration is keen and sustained. Saturn is the skeletal structure that holds our entire system erect, and today he inspires you to focus on strengthening the backbone of your projects and plans. Toward evening, the stars add a daydream or two to this very practical work day. This keeps your goals and visions focused on the horizon, not the pebbles at your feet.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Is it paradoxical to say you’re working hard on having the best daydream possible? Funny elements are combined right now--the take-care-of-business practicality of Saturn and the time-out-to-daydream Neptune. If you take advantage of today’s ability to concentrate, you can actualize that “unrealistic” dream. Or at least get the action plan written. We’re coming to the longest night of the year. Extra dreamtime.
