Your cognitive skills and memorization abilities will receive a major boost when this week begins. By December 8, the moon will be rushing through your intelligent third house as it forms a trine with Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn in your relationship sector. Not only is this a beautiful time to study for a test, it’s also a great time to listen to a lecture or ask a mentor for advice. You’ll be both receptive to the added feedback and you won’t forget it easily.
However, by December 9, you might feel more like taking a breather rather than gearing up to get ahead of the game. The moon will be in your sensitive fourth house of the home, making you crave comfort and downtime. As the moon opposes Mars in your career sector, work obligations could leave you feeling guilty for needing to take a break. Everyone needs rest eventually. As long as you get back to work later, there’s no reason to feel bad. You’re only human.
Luckily, by December 11, you’ll feel totally motivated to compete when the sun in your productive fifth house forms a trine with Mars. This inspires you to prove what a hard worker you really are.
