How did most astrologers screw up in their prediction of the presidential election on my blog here.
The most dynamic aspect this month is Jupiter square Uranus occurring at the end of December. I call Jupiter and Uranus the two ‘get off town” planets. Jupiter wants to expand and grow, physically, mentally and spiritually and Uranus wants to make sudden unpredictable changes. This aspect takes place at 20 degrees of Lira and Aries. If you have personal planets within 3 degrees of this aspect, hold on to your hats.
We also have Mercury moving retrograde on Dec 19 until January 8.--right on time to screw up your Christmas Shopping.
Dates to Watch:
Dec 1- Mars Trine Jupiter. Actions tend to be favorable. Your time is put to good use. Work is enjoyable. Progress is made. Very good for any financial work. Your energy seems to flow, especially if you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars) or the ascendant at 16 Aquarius or Libra.
Dec 2 – Mercury enters Capricorn until Jan until Feb 8. He goes retrograde on Dec 19 until Jan 8, 2017. Mercury is Capricorn means that your mind becomes focused on the practical. You are interested in what you can accomplish in the material world.
Dec 7 – Venus enters Aquarius until January 4, 2017. The planet of love is entering a period where she wants to be a little kinky, no commitments and she wants to shock you with what she says, what she wears and the things she gets up to.
Dec 10 – Sun conjunct Saturn. At 18 Sagittarius. Your boss or other officials could come down hard on you today. This is not a fun day. Keep your head down and work. This can be really depressing if you have personal planets or the ascendant at 18 Sagittarius.
Dec 12 – Sun Trine Uranus at 20 Sagittarius/Aries. An invitation to a party or unexpected visitors arrive. It’s a fun day.
Dec 13 – Full Moon at 22 Gemini. A flowering of Gemini energy. A time for important communications.
Dec 19 – Mercury turs retrograde at 15 Capricorn and stays retrograde until January 8, 2017. The retrograde period is a good time to have some downtime. Chill out. Just don’t buy a car or any electronic or mechanical equipment. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 15 Capricorn, you may come up with a brilliant idea today. During the
Dec 21 – Sun enters Capricorn until January 20, 2017. This is the darkest time of the year. Capricorns love the dark where they can hide and count their money.
Dec 24 – Saturn Trine Uranus at 20 Sagittarius/Aries. A good aspect for Christmas. Out with the old, in with the new. It’s a flowing aspect so this will be an easy transition to make.
Dec 25 – Venus Trine Jupiter. A special gift can be received or a happy time had by all.
Dec 26 – Jupiter opposite Uranus at 20- degrees of Libra/Aries. This is a doozy of an aspect. Let’s pick it apart. Jupiter is in Libra where he wants balance and Uranus is in Aries and he wants an explosion. There can be a release of tension that has built up from trying to keep things at an even keel. If you feel that you are in a rut, this is the day to break free. Whatever happens, this aspect will lead to a change in circumstances. To see how it will affect you, look to the houses in your natal chart that contain Libra and Aries. After you find the houses containing Jupiter and Uranus, look for their meaning here.
Dec 28 – Sun Conjunct Mercury at 7 Capricorn. You are going to feel like going on a trip. Or maybe you will be driving around returning those hideous gifts you got for Christmas.
Dec 29 - New Moon at 7 Capricorn. This is the start of the month. Before we got the wacky calendar we use today, the months always started on the new moon. The month following this one will be about getting down to business. Dealing with your holiday hangover. Trying to pay off the bills you rang up during the holidays. Have fun!
Uranus Stations and turns direct 20 degrees of Aries. Uranus ruling rebellion is in the sign of the feisty individual. Expect the unexpected. If you have personal planets or the ascendant at 20 degrees of Aries, try not to go off the deep end. This will be in effect for 3 days before and after the 29th.
OUTER PLANET TRANSITS:
JUPITER is in Libra until Oct 2017. This month he moves from 16 to 21 degrees of Libra Jupiter is about growth and expansion especially in travel and education and also in the area of your life ruled by the house in your natal chart that holds 16 to 21 degrees of Libra. In Libra, he would bring good news and harmony in relationships.
SATURN is in Sagittarius until Dec 2017. This month he will travel from 17 to 21 degrees of Sagittarius. If you have the ascendant or any personal planets at 17 to 21 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini, you may be in store for some hard lessons around the issues ruled by the planet and the house the planet is in or rules. While Saturn is in Sagittarius, he is asking about your belief system, your hopes for the future and your travel plans
URANUS is in Aries until 2018. This month Uranus is retrograde and will stay at 20 degrees of Aries. We feel a need for freedom and we want to make some radical changes in our life. I believe in “cooperating with the inevitable”. If you have Uranus in a challenging aspect to your ascendant or personal planets, go on a long vacation, move, or make some major changes in your life.
NEPTUNE (creativity, sensitivity, escapism, dreams) is in Pisces until 2026. This month he will stay at 9 degrees all month. A lack of focus, a sense of drifting or an inability to see a betrayal or disappointment until it's too late can be experienced by those of you with the Sun or Personal Planets at 9 degrees of Pisces or Virgo. For the enlightened out there, Neptune can also bring artistic, musical, creative expression, increased dreams and spiritual insights. Watch for some really inspired films to come out during the time Neptune is in Pisces.
PLUTO is in Capricorn until 2023. This month Pluto moves from 15 to 16 degrees of Capricorn. Profound changes will be felt especially by those with Sun, ascendant or personal planets at 15 degrees of Capricorn or Cancer.
Have a good month.
