We now enter an extremely hard edged period of a Mutable T-square driven by the very volatile Mercury square Mars, so SLOW DOWN!
Mercury square Mars is good for intense writing, reading things quickly, and exercising, as long as we don't overdo it. It's not good for hasty decisions, abrupt interactions, or getting too assertive, since that aspect can provoke pretty hard reactions to what is said or done (or not said or done!)
December 30 shows a Moon square Mercury and opposed Mars between 1-7 am PST, 9am-3 pm Greenwich. The void is at 19-20 Gemini. However, when that T-square passes and the Moon enters Aries on December 31, 1:28 am PST, 9:28 am Greenwich, it then begins to conjunct Uranus and square Pluto and the Sun, exactly at the time Mercury squares Mars at 21 Sag/Virgo at 10:06 pm PST New Year's Eve, 6:06 am Greenwich New Year's day. That's a lot of squares going on at once!
So New Year's Eve has Mercury square Mars exact, and at the same time the Moon is activating Uranus square Pluto! Be very, very, careful, regardless of where you are and what you're doing. I suspect this will be at the least an exciting New Year's Eve, and at worst, well, I don't want to talk about it.
The Mutable T-square and subsequent Mercury square Mars in effect through January 2 most affects those born the second week of December, March, June, and September, as well as those with planets or points around 17-23 Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Generationally, it will have a powerful effect on those born 9/36-9/38, 6-7/43, 1-4/44, 8-11/45, 5/46-6/47, 1-4/48, 10/49-2/50, 7-9/50, 2-3/51, 11/57-1/58, and 6-10/58.
Those in their mid to late 40s watch out! This configures with major outer planet positions for those born between Nov 64 and Jan 65, and especially those born 6/65 through 10/68. Others affected are those born 11-12/71, 7/72-1/73, 4-6/73, 6-8/74, 12/74-2/75, 2-3/77, 6-8/77, 1-7/78, 10/78-12/80, 7-12/81, 2-6/85, and 11/85-2/88.
Be realistic in your assessments, try not to get aggravated or respond to things too quickly, and be adaptable and compassionate as you avoid that which could bring reproach or regrets. Feel deeply, but remember that some of what you're feeling is in the generic field of collective consciousness. Integrate your knowledge and perceptions, and try to reference it all to a greater wisdom.
On a somewhat related note, the Moon in Aries December 31 (Western Hemisphere) and January 1 (Eastern Hemisphere) square Pluto and the Sun will most impact people born late March, June, September, and December, as well as those with important planets or points between 6-12 Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. This marks the beginning of the next phase of Uranus square Pluto, since Uranus is direct and getting closer to the square every day for months, with the square lasting for years!
Generationally, the Uranus square Pluto kicking off at New Year's Eve most impacts quite a few. Older generations include those born 2/28-4/31, 12/36-1/37, 6-8/37, 2-8/38, 11/38-1/39, 6-10/39, 1-10/40, 2-4/41, 3-4/44, 7/44-1/46, 4-10/49, 1/50-8/52, 10-11/52, 1-2/53, 6-11/53, 1/54, 3-9/54, 2-6/59, 9/59-1/60.
Younger generations include 4-5/60, 8/60-4/61, 3-7/66, 4-11/67, 1-4/68, 12/68-2/69, 4-5/69, 8/69-10/71, 2-5/72, 10/72-4/73, 9-11/73, 5/74-11/775-6/78, 8/78, 11/80-4/81, 7/81-1/82, 3-7/82, 3-7/87, and 8/87-1/92.
The latter two groups will see long range effects over the next few years, so pay attention to the seeds of renewal and individualization that will show you the way to thread the needle of the Uranus square Pluto. Obviously, I'll be writing more during the coming months and years!
So Happy Western New Year, enjoy yourselves, but slow down, be careful, and when in doubt, don't!
