You are still not out of the woods yet regarding the intensity of martial zeal. As reported in this calendar yesterday, the red planet Mars is making a statement to humanity as the final month of 2014 dawns. Yesterday saw three Mars alignments and now Mercury is parallel to Mars (3:23AM) while Mars forms a potentially frictional, 45-degree tie with wounded-healer Chiron (6:00AM).
Fortunately, just two minutes before Mercury and Mars are parallel, the Sun makes a parallel to Ceres (3:21AM). This kind of parallel — similar to a conjunction in the zodiac — may help any martial fireworks to dissipate more rapidly than expected. Ceres can offer increased productivity in your main fields of expertise. What can also accentuate opportunities knocking are the presence of a grand triangle in fire signs as the Moon in Aries trines Venus in Sagittarius (3:15AM) and Jupiter in Leo (8:17AM). Add on Mercury parallel to Ceres (12:06AM) and your urge to be immensely productive can give you an all-around boost.
Be aware that a void lunar uncertainty zone arrives on the scene at 6:43PM when the Moon in Aries squares Mars in Capricorn. This void-of-course lunar conundrum continues in force until 9:16PM when the Moon enters Taurus — the sign of its exaltation. The key rule of thumb for a void lunar cycle is that it is all right to finish old business on a high note, but don’t be tempted to launch bold, new enterprises.
