Welcome to the end of the year. I hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
If you braved the stores on Friday, well, I hope you had fun. I actually did a bit of shopping on Saturday after officiating a wedding. I was amazed at the lack of crazy traffic or crowds of people. I even went to Costco, one in another Triad town, and found parking close to the store and short lines at the checkout. I was in and out of there in 20 minutes and found exactly what I was looking for.
December is going to be a busy month in many ways. Hanukah Not only will the winter holidays be on our minds but for many so will what it going on in the sky.
This blog is now a bit over two years old. During this time I have talked a lot about what I call the “Pluto Uranus square-dance.”
These two planets have been at or near 90 degrees square to each other since 2012. Coming up Dec. 15th we have the 6th of 7th exact squares. If you wish to read up in this more perhaps, you can begin with my post on this subject from September 2012.
Here is a link to that blog. http://wp.me/pZHdf-1w
The Pluto Uranus square is the most difficult, powerful, and significant aspect of any generation. Anytime Pluto and Uranus aspect each other, things happen in a big and often unexpected ways. These two were conjunct in the mid 1960’s era of civil rights and anti war demonstrations, and the birth of the hippie movement. And they were square around the time of the stock market crash of the 1930’s.
Similarly, this latest square aspect period has coincided with demonstrations of various kinds around the world, the birth of the “Occupy Movement” and some pretty crazy weather around the globe too. In the past few years, we have seen leaders fall and leaders rise. Skeptics refute any coincidence, while history shows a pattern.
This week begins with a Sun/Moon fire trine on Monday. Mars the ruler of Aries will sextile Saturn and influence the Aries Moon making Monday and great day to get things done. Mars is going to get things moving so take advantage of this day and you might be surprised at how much you accomplish.
Tuesday Mars is semi-square Chiron. This transit can cause us to be more touchy that usual. Some will find it difficult to express our anger or needs honestly.
Wednesday Saturn is sesquiquadrate Uranus. Our independence and impulsiveness butt heads with structure and authority. Following the rules might seem hard for some of us to do. Hopefully we will find a way to combine these two needs in some innovative way. Adjusting plans to create a balance will be the test. Should there be a setback, fear not, it will be temporary and most likely lead us down some creative paths or help us find imaginative solutions.
Thursday Mars leaves Capricorn and moves into Aquarius. This will invigorate the Aquarian penchant toward open mindedness and the undefined. Our energy could be somewhat unpredictable thanks to our possible hit or miss strategy. Mars can also be a bit impersonal, even aloof. Never the less we are cooperative team players and much less concerned with our own power. We look for more original and intelligent ways to solve problems while at the same time being somewhat detached.
This transit will also affect our communications. All communication forms, whether written, spoke or social media, will get a boost for the next six weeks. I hope all your communications are loving ones and not ones of anger.
This is also a happy, co-operative and hopeful transit. We trust our relationships and are more attracted to honesty and reliability. The shadow side is that it can be self indulgent and lazy. This will be a good transit for the upcoming holiday travel and marketing. Winning someone’s trust will also take less effort during this transit.
Thursday also sees the Sun trine Uranus. Change is afoot, and this time change is good as long as we are flexible. Whatever you are working on, stay flexible. You might discover something new and stay open to the possibilities. I know this is easier said than done but try. Exceptional or unusual opportunities could show up. Take advantage of them and you could be rewarded in good ways.
Also on Thursday, Venus trines Jupiter. This is a friendly, positive transit. Jupiter expands our big hearts
Venus trine Jupiter. Friendliness and optimism characterize this transit. We are big-hearted and our feelings are expansive. The outlook is cheerful and hopeful and the atmosphere is cooperative. This is a sociable, perhaps lazy and self-indulgent, time. We easily find meaning in our social connections. We are more open and trusting of friends and lovers. Integrity and loyalty are favored. A favorable aspect for winning people’s trust. Speculation, advertising, publishing, and travel are favored.
Friday, the Sun which represent our ego, squares Chiron, the wounded healer. We c may find our confidence lowered with feelings of fear that we might be different. Self-doubt can lead to doubting our own decisions. Be careful that you don’t follow someone else’s lead because you want to please them. This seldom works out for the best.
Saturday brings us the Full Moon. I hope you are planning to finish the projects you began at the last New Moon and resolve any problems in our relationships. Sometimes it is best to cut out loses and move one, even if it is right here at holiday time.
This Moon is in Gemini and opposite the Sun in Sagittarius, joined by Mercury. Both these signs represent the mind. Gemini is the lower mind and Sag, the higher mind. Gemini wants us to think logically while Sagittarius wants us to think big. Communication, adventure and attitude are the themes of this Full Moon. This is also the last Full Moon of 2014. The Sun/Mercury conjunction during this moon is asking us to speak out and express the ideas we have been growing and nurturing until now. Speak up and speak out.
Saturday will also be a good time to do some holiday shopping. The available energy will help you make gift choices folks will like. Tis the season! Enjoy!
