In the Stars for December


In the Stars for December

Another end of the year and the fall season while the Sun travels through Sagittarius and then we have the Winter Solstice Dec. 21 when the Sun enters Capricorn and we have the shortest day in the year and the longest night. We light the candles, put up the lights around the evergreen tree as our northern ancestors did in hope that the everlasting light of the Sun would return again in the spring. This winter is going to be colder so say the weather experts and we can see that happening now. Another year of the Julian calendar has passed. However, the Sun in Sagittarius ruled by expansive Jupiter in its own sign this month will lend opportunity, faith and hope to the many that keep their hearts open this holiday season as the Sun in Sagittarius brings in the feeling of optimism and expansion. If we change our perspective our reality can change, which is the maxim of Sagittarius.
A positive mutable fire sign makes these folks positive, confident, and courageous. They entertain many goals but especially the pursuit of truth. This sign is linked to religion, ethics, and spiritual concepts. They see things in broad terms not always seeing the specific. They live for their principles and need to develop the patience to see those goals manifested. They love to help others and will work hard to maintain their own security. They tell it as they see it so they can be blunt but not really hurtful. They do engage in flirtations with others yet want to maintain their freedom. Life is an adventure to be fully lived. Intellectually orientated and open to the new, they like their friends and partners to be like that as well, otherwise, they abhor boredom or limitations and come and go as they please. This year Jupiter your ruling planet gives you that extra strength and confidence to do as you wish. This is a time for change or expansion, even if it is with just your attitude change. Happy Birthday, Sagittarius!

The Planetary Cycles for December

This monthly cycle starts with the First Quarter Moon in the mystical water sign Pisces increases our capacity to perceive from the higher realms, this can stir up our imagination, creativity hopes, and dreams.  Mercury is in direct motion in the water sign Scorpio for this first week, then it shifts into Sagittarius, where it will increase our sense of comprehension and optimism just be-aware of know all the facts if you are espousing truths.

Then Jupiter, the planet of expansion will shift into the serious earth sign Capricorn Dec. 2nd. This ends its trek through its own sign Sagittarius this last year, where it may have stirred up our hope and dreams, but in Capricorn, its detriment or fall, will show us the facts plainly especially when it lines up with Saturn ruler of Capricorn which rules limitation as Jupiter rules expansion two opposite forces will combine in March of 2020. The earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn can benefit from this aspect. For most of us, perhaps due to the forces of conservatism taking shape in this world, we can start to understand where our rulers are coming from and the direction of governments will take. However, Jupiter and Uranus form a beneficial trine from now until January 2020. We may receive more insights on how to change for the good of our evolution through these more intense coming earth changes. Sometimes these two forces can increase earthquakes and other earth changes. Perhaps the writing is on the wall on how to proceed before March 2020. This could also mean the rise of progressive movements that the youth in the world are demanding.

Venus planet of relationships is in serious Capricorn where it conjoins with Saturn in the mid-month around Dec. 10th. This will be a serious time or time where the value of security matters in relationships. Are we wiser this year than last year, a time to evaluate your belief systems and structure of security? Venus shifts into the humanitarian air sign Aquarius and this may uplift our altruistic feelings this month starting Dec. 19th.

Mars in its own sign Scorpio makes a sextile to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn,  this can be condusive to creating new structures or the pursut of plans with relative ease. All the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces benefit from Mars this month.

The Full Moon in Gemini/Sun in Sag. occurs on Dec. 11th this month’s high point of lunar energy brings things to a head, around networks, social engagements, parties, and sharing ideas Remember the Moon makes things grow.
Then finishing up the lunar cycle, the Last Quarter Moon occurs Dec. 18th in the analytical earth sign Virgo. The details start to show up and we want to get our homes ready for the Holidays. The Sun enters Capricorn and winter arrives. Meteor showers will light up the night sky it’s a good time to pull out the telescope and look at this amazing universe.

On Dec. 25th we have a powerful Solar Eclipse/ New Moon another cycle starts and it’s a wake-up time for Capricorn Sun signs and most earth signs.  Also Aries, Cancer and Libra, Sun signs will feel the impact of this new energy as the Solar Eclipse does wake up our consciousness on the whole. The New Moon in Capricorn helps to establish the forms for our ambitions, yet it shows us our limitations so we may shore up our strength for the times to come and develop new structures perhaps in architecture and energy systems coming in 2020. The Moon will be in the mystical elusive water sign Pisces conjunct foggy delusional/inspirational Neptune in Pisces. This aspect can help us reach the highest spiritual vibrations or descend into our sorrow and woes on New Year’s Eve so be-aware of imbibing too much, rather reach towards your higher self and have a safe holiday season.

Peace and Blessings
