DECEMBER 8 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallJupiter turns retrograde today and squares Saturn. If you’ve been doing the needed structural changes to your writing projects, you will be rewarded. Now you can go over old material and see where everything fits in. Venus semi-sextile Saturn allows you to see the beauty in the structure. Where you were groping around in the dark, a beam of light now illuminates your path. As Jupiter retrogrades in Leo for the next four months, you can incorporate old material you may have thought was lost. Creative threads that were abandoned can now be picked up and woven into the cloth.

DECEMBER 7 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallYou could wake up with revolutionary techno-dreams buzzing around in your head. Over breakfast you could still be thinking about how those ideas fit into the big picture. By mid-morning, the Moon enters Cancer, and home and family issues take precedence for the rest of the day. You could be jotting down ideas about new technologies for use in the home. Mercury is combust in Sagittarius giving us big ideas but interfering with their articulation. It’s a day for thinking and making notes about those great ideas, not actually writing them.

DECEMBER 6 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallYou don’t get to access the fun today unless you accept radical changes in the structure of your writing. If you try to stick with your old way of writing or if you refuse to make those big revisions (you know are needed), you’ll be doing things the hard way. The Full Moon in Gemini wants to open your writing up to more drama, more romance, more vision. But you can only get there within a solid framework that allows you to expand without popping like a big balloon of hot air. Mars in Aquarius doesn’t want to be held back like that, but, sometimes, good boundaries can free you.

DECEMBER 5 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallAs the Moon moves into Gemini this morning and trines Mars in Aquarius, we are driven to write about broad social or humanitarian issues. The focus is on corruption, especially about the political will and commitment to address it. Journalists who write about these issues will hit an emotional mother lode in their readers. Crime and thriller writers can benefit from these aspects as well. Things lighten up this evening, as comedic writing is highlighted. Slightly off-the-wall and aggressive humor writing wins the day.

DECEMBER 4 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallAfter a dreamy morning, we wake up to revelations about new economic structures. Anyone writing about the economy will get some new ideas, but more research will be needed. There could be friction around publishing contracts or other financial relationships, but these ease up after dinner. Mars moves into Aquarius this evening taking our mind off business and sparking new visions about society and friendships. The day blows hot and cold, difficult and easy, up and down. You’ll feel like a boat in a storm. Just keep your eye on the lighthouse, where your writing sits on the solid ground of your plot structure or outline. Then just keep sailing toward that shore.

DECEMBER 3 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallTravel writers, food writers, and anyone who writes about daily routines of any kind will have a wonderful writing day today. The Moon in Taurus allows us to feel those sensual details, and the biquintile to Mercury enhances our communication of them. We’ll even have a tendency to over-do the expressiveness, and we may move into the realm of complete fantasy. You could write about housework today and make it seem like a fantastic voyage. If you are a fantasy writer, this could be perfect, allowing you to spin outlandish dreams that seem very real. Lasso a cloud today and bring a few dreams down to earth. Build yourself some fantastic scenes.

DECEMBER 2 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThis morning, it’s as if the floodgates have opened and your writing is pouring out. This afternoon, though, things slow down. It’s a great evening for considering big new ideas about where your writing can take you. Your greatest visions are achievable as you blend them with practicality and stamina. Writing about women’s issues is highlighted, especially about the future of women or about women in foreign countries. If you write science fiction, speculate about the role of women in future societies or on other planets.

There is the potential to write about profound changes in how the world cares for all children.
