Daily Report ~ Sunday, December 18, 2016
By Nikki Rich PAC
It is a pretty quiet day today but consider it the calm before the storm as there are a lot of shifts in the coming week and stronger aspects patterns building. Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow and we should already feel like things are slowing down, just as one example of what is coming up.
The moon and sun make a trine which peaks at 7:27 AM. The waning trine is a part of the monthly lunar cycle and here we have the moon growing smaller after the full moon earlier this week. This aspect is generally harmonious although it is not strong.
The moon opposes Mars at 11:55 AM and this is usually an energetic aspect. The advice for this aspect is to take action, and if you feel blocked and cannot take direct action then to channel your frustration into a constructive task that either needs to be done or put the energy into something physical like a good workout.
After the above aspect perfects the moon in void-of-course for a short time, less than an hour. This means it is not a particularly good time to start new projects. If you must do something it is better to complete routine tasks and finish up things that were started previously. Resting is also a good thing to do under a void-of-course moon.
At 12:52 PM the moon enters Virgo. Virgo is a great sign, with the ultimate desire of making the world a better, more perfect place. And there are a million little things in life that can be improved and which Virgo likes to work on to make more efficient and more sensible. Perfection of course is always a goal, one you can never truly reach, but the striving is what makes Virgo tick. Use this moon sign to take a look at your own surroundings and see if there are small changes you can make to your environment and to your routine that will aid you in “perfecting” your own life.

Affirmation of the Day: I love getting better. (Everyday in every way.)
Crystal of the Day: Malachite as it both promotes success and serves as a protection stone.
Essential Oil of the Day: Lemon for it's cleansing properties … as you may know Virgo moon loves to clean! And lemon also helps purify our environment and release and negativity.
