The Stars This Week: December 30, 2013 - January 5, 2014
Complications!

No matter what transpires this week, it's sure to be a memorable time as Mars, the Sun, and Mercury connect with the Uranus-Pluto square! Firstly, Mars squares Pluto on December 30, when you'll find your plans challenged. On December 31, try to avoid arguments as Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Mars. And lastly, January 1 brings a fresh start in the form of a new Moon in Capricorn!

December 30: Mars squares Pluto
If you've ever dealt with control freaks, you know how difficult it can be to negotiate with them. As Mars connects with the Uranus-Pluto square, you're likely to encounter plenty of domineering people, so if you're trying to get something accomplished now, you're bound to face an uphill battle. Since you can expect to be tested, think twice about engaging dramatically with those who have no intention of playing fair. How you handle disagreements this week will indicate a great deal about your character!

December 31: Mercury conjuncts Pluto and squares Mars
This week, do your best to avoid arguments with anyone who can't let things go. There's so much difficult planetary energy occurring this week, the more you can do to avoid disagreements, the better off everyone will be. Of course, if you feel it's important to take a stand and speak up, by all means do so! Just make sure you're extremely thoughtful about what you say -- this is no time to be careless or impulsive!

January 1: New Moon in Capricorn
This ambitious new Moon -- with its conjunction to Pluto, squares to Mars and Uranus, and opposition to Jupiter -- brings a fresh start loaded with tension and unresolved conflicts. The good news, though, is that you won't have to guess about what you're confronting. Make up your mind to deal with people and situations in a way that makes you proud. Those who aren't behaving well will stand out like sore thumbs now -- this simply isn't an environment in which a person can get away with anything! Decide what you want to be responsible for ... and what you don't. Take action to make your life secure. As the Moon increases in light between its new and full phases, put your energy into something you'd like to see become stronger or more important in your life. If you do, you'll see results at the full Moon in Cancer on January 16.
