«One who sees the Supersoul (Īśvaram) equally present everywhere, in every living being, does not degrade himself by his mind. Thus he approaches the transcendental destination». (Bhagavad-gītā, 13.29)
Love and energy!
You can take advantage of the good position of Venus and Mars for the whole month, Scorpio. The planet of love will be joined to you and, as December is the month of holidays and dinners, it will give you the right mood to be with people and express your affection. With Neptune trine your understanding of others will be very profound and empathic. Your magnetism will be intense, considering that Mars will give you great energy and charisma too. So take advantage of this beautiful moment and even if a moon square could make you nervous on Christmas day, know that you can turn that mental excess into creative energy!
In the ancient commentary of Vyasa to the Yoga-sūtra, in verse 3.23 you can read: «friendliness, mercy and complaisance are the three sentiments. Of these, with the feeling of friendliness towards all happy creatures, the power of friendliness is acquired ». The same, the text says, applies to mercy and complaisance. With bhāvanā, the cultivation of these three feelings, you can achieve samadhi (spiritual realization), too.
