I love champagne. And December is the perfect time for me to enjoy this wonderful drink. And boy am I, and so are you, gonna need it because if you thought November was crazy, you ain't seen nothing yet. This month is whirlpool time. Grab a railing, and hang on. The month starts off with negative aspects. Then shifts gears to pleasant around the 10th and on the 21st shifts again and slips down into a very stressful time.
So buckle up, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.
Venus, the feminine and how you feel romantically when you are in love, is in cool-hearted, practical Capricorn this month. It's a time for serious, real love, no starry eyed kid stuff here. Practical is the word, which is about as far from romantic as you can get - or is it? What is more meaningful than a stable, solid, committed relationship? This venus is also rare in that instead of 3.5 weeks of visiting a sign, its going to be in Capricorn until March. And this Venus is also turning retrograde on Dec 21 through to Jan 31, 2014. It is bringing to us a new vision of the feminine. Women are coming into power for real. New businesses, new communities, new visions for empowerment to make a new world dynamic. It's just like the sixties rise in the idea of feminine liberation and now she brings with her stability, balance, fairness and tough love to these chaotic times. On a personal level its time to form REAL relationships based on certain practicalities. Bond with your friends, hold tight, shift as needed to allow the new them and the new you to emerge. Find a mate who is about commitment and wants something real. It's the perfect time for real.
Jupiter, our planet of good luck and fun, went retrograde last month. Retrogrades are about delays. So for a few months money, luck, even fun, are in limited supply. Take what comes with gratitude and the acknowledgement that each small gift is a blessing. And Jupiter is squaring Pluto who's at war with Uranus, making things unstable and unpredictable. Then Mars moves into Libra Dec 7, so he and Jupiter oppose the two waring planets. And Mars too makes a rare move and is in this sign until July 2014, vs a six week run. Lots of hitting up against Uranus from mars, escalating reckless energy.
While the month may start out quite rocky, by the 10th things will settle down, then hit major rocks at the end of the month. Connect to the Universe in your hours of stress. Its all happening so you turn to the Divine for sustenance. This connection heals everything. Dec 28-31 is hot-head, angry time. Stay home New Years Eve and don't be on the road. Its a quiet parties year for the New Year celebration. People are going to be angry, dangerous, outspoken and just kinda scary during this period. Relationships end with a bang, things said can't be taken back. Globally this can mean major issues between nations who don't use their heads when making decisions and true conflicts begin in earnest out of pure anger and a need to be right in a very uncontrollable way. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are especially affected here, but everyone will experience the upheaval (champagne anyone?).
Uranus turns direct on Dec 17th after having been retrograde for 5 months, so science and technology will move forward again (probably the ACA website will start working without glitches). This is the month for surprises, insight out of the blue, and unexpected enlightenment. Be ready to make adjustments on a moments notice. Your inner genius is at work again.
Uranus is also aspecting Chiron, the wounded healer, unearthing old wounds and trauma's that are still affecting you whether you know it or not. Look at these wounds. Re-live them, roll in the pain and release it. It has to be done now. It's time for healing. you will also find these memories are blown out of proportion in many ways and the journey through the pain isn't as awful as you think it will be. Cry a lot, yes you guys out there too. Tears release this pain, and only tears. Weep, cry, sob, breathe deeply and hard, and face your demons so you can laugh at them and send them away. The release is there if you do the work. (Hey I am just the messenger and trust me I am going through a lot these day just like all of you. But the goal is a lighter load, the ability to clear away the old to make way for the new.) It's an ongoing message. WE have to change to change the world.
And now I repeat myself as I have done for months now, the big battle in the sky is ongoing. The Uranus Pluto square, lasting until March 2015 is at peak energy. Its triggering all kinds of stuff, with deep intensity, pouring energy into us and the world, but opposing energy, making us edgy, restless, confused and almost out of sync with the world.
It's time for drastic evolutionary action. I see the Walmart and Fast Food workers standing up to their bosses and I cheer. They are walking their talk, what are you doing? Do you see injustice and turn your head? Or do you speak up. Its time to speak up. If a store treats you badly, complain. If the corporations are destroying your town via fracking, get up and make noise. Its time to be part of the change. Write emails to congress, send letters to local governments, join the protesters, start a block committee or an apt building committee. Have a business idea that's a win/win. Go for it! Show people how business can make a profit and help their consumers and community in doing so. Business isn't bad, just the nature of too many today is bad. Greed is never good. ever.
It's a strange time we live in. We're all on the roller coaster, which is about to fly off the rails into new, uncharted territory. Bring your courage, your ideas and your idealism with you. The 60's is back with a bang. The Age of Aquarius is upon us. Be a participator. Find your place, and be counted. It really matters karmically. You came here to do this in this lifetime, become more spiritually evolved, more at peace with who you are and therefore more powerful and fearless. You have a mission. Time to step up and be counted. It's pretty simple really, where you see unfairness, speak out. SHE is asking us to find the balance. There is nothing wrong with profit, but not off the backs of the poor. There's nothing wrong with being in Government, but fight for society and the people, not corporate desires. Dare to be a better you. Dare to build a better world. And have fun doing it, with your friends and family, or you'll explode from the energy vortex we're currently living within. It's a crazy time, but hey we all agreed to be here, so get off your butts and CHANGE yourself and/or the world. Champagne anyone?
