“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” – Anais Nin
No matter that many of us in the U.S. may be bummed out by the brutal cold weather that has currently hijacked much of the country, making holiday travel very difficult – even treacherous or impossible in some regions – today’s astrology still suggests that we may want to consider hitching either our wagon or SUV to a twinkling star and making a wish as thinker Mercury in Scrooge-minded Capricorn forms a magical sextile to transcendental Neptune in fairy-tale Pisces (8:17 pm), suggesting that the veil between worlds is thinner now.
Who knows, this more forgiving, envisioning aspect may even convince Santa to overlook our myriad transgressions, this past year, and charitably leave us something under the tree tonight other than the usual lump of coal in our stockings. 🙂
Mercury-Neptune is excellent for any type of creative work as it may more readily propel us into a state of dreaminess or relaxed consciousness. At the same time, Mercury in organizing, practical Capricorn can help add definition or form to any of the byproducts that visionary Neptune conjures up. We may also want to keep a journal by our bed tonight, as this influence can give rise to very vivid nocturnal dreams as well. What is also interesting about our dreams, and their particular content, is that they often seem to mirror, in symbolic fashion, the astrological themes of the moment.
Due to Mercury stationing retrograde on December 29, we will also have this Mercury-Neptune aspect two more times – on January 2 and February 6 – suggesting something that we undertake today may be put aside and sent back to the drawing board for a redo, before it is finally awarded its angel wings.

On This Day in History: On December 24, 1955, NORAD’s Santa tracking service begins. The event is now a Christmas tradition where the North American Aerospace Defense Command tracks Santa Claus as he travels around the world delivering presents to children. The event began after a printing error in a Sears catalog asking children to call Santa Claus. The number that was printed was the number of Colorado Springs’ Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Center. (timeanddate.com)
(Among the astrological aspects, that day, love goddess Venus had just entered hi-tech, aircraft-ruling Aquarius, at 0 degrees, and was forming an exact square to fantasy Neptune at 0 degrees of transformational Scorpio. Venus was also opposing trend-setting Uranus, at 1 degree of theatrical Leo, an influence that often has us searching for “out of the ordinary” experiences that ideally add some extra pizzazz to our lives. Also, very helpful then was ‘Santa Claus’ Jupiter’s near exact trine to the empowering Capricorn Sun. Positive Sun-Jupiter aspects often expand feelings of peace and goodwill and tends to operate on a broad scale.; the Capricorn Sun is also very tradition minded.)
“We have to deal with a polar vortex once in a while, but Santa lives year-round in one at the North Pole, so he’s used to this weather,” deadpanned U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Ben Wiseman, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, which tracks the yuletide flight.

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well this Christmas Eve.
