12/18/2010 Artists, musicians and meditators are in their element in the morning hours. Even the creatively challenged, may feel inspired to paint, cook or shop with fresh eyes.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius, increasing the tendency for fast talk. If you’re in sales, today may be a great day to get your message across.

If you are fighting an uphill battle, give it a rest; you may get a lift to the top when you stop to see who else is out there.

The moon is VOC* from 4:36 pm -10:37 pm ET. Avoid being on your computer once it enters Gemini, unless you can cope with a late night cyber-jaunt that goes nowhere.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Gemini, conversations can be particularly misunderstood; avoid important correspondence or phone calls. Great time to clean out old emails and tidy up your desktop.
