In front of us we have a solid week of favorable aspects, showing we should be able to accomplish a lot as we run up to the Full Moon at 26 Gemini on December 17.
Next week I’ll be posting more about that Full Moon, along with articles on Venus going retrograde at 29 Capricorn and the Winter Solstice at 9:11 am PST, 5:11 pm Greenwich December 21. For now, though, we have several days of great aspects coming.
Today (Thursday) we’ve experienced the extremely harmonious and stabilizing Jupiter trine Saturn from 19 Cancer to 19 Scorpio. This energy will dominate for at least the next week, so you should be getting a clear feeling-understanding about larger social and cultural things across life areas where you have mid-Cancer, mid-Scorpio, and mid-Pisces. There is much wisdom, clarity, and potential in this aspect, and it has been harmonizing those life areas in our charts ruled by Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
It is offering a special blessing to those with planets near 11-15 Aries, 5-9 Taurus, 23-27 Gemini, 5-9 Virgo, 29 Virgo-3 Libra, 11-15 Sagittarius, 29 Capricorn-3 Aquarius, and 23-27 Aquarius. Look at the feeling-flow, see clearly what sustains you, who cares for you, where your best, more natural and organic flow moves you toward, and trust that if you get still, you will feel a deeper wisdom.
Lunar aspects are spectacular! The Moon in Taurus makes a trine to Pluto and sextile to Jupiter through Dec 13 and into Dec 14 for those in the Eastern Hemisphere. Even the opposition of Moon and Saturn early Dec 14 should be good for throwing off heaviness by seeing how a long range plan can be executed.
The party continues through Dec 14 with Moon trine Venus, lasting through most of Dec 15 in the far East. As Moon moves into Gemini 10:41 pm PST Dec 14 (Dec 15 CST and points east), it then is trine Mars and sextile Uranus through Sunday, Dec 15. Sextiles and trines can indicate very favorable generic circumstances furthering productivity and understanding, so make the most of it!
On Dec 16, the Moon opposed Mercury heralds its opposition to the Sun on Dec 17, mentioned earlier. This Full Moon Sun is the exact degree of the Sun in the chart of the Tunisian Revolution that began Dec 19, 2010. To whet your appetite, the degree of the coming Full Moon Sun is 26 Sagittarius has as its symbol "the flag bearer," which is a symbol of selfless dedication to a greater collective ideal.
Dr. Jones tells us that degree is where things of "enduring significance... overshadow the more immediate interests or wholely selfish concerns of man, and the emphasis... on the natural supremacy of common ideals over mere individual ambitions." He says this degree "is the call for a high self-sacrifice... (to) permit the self to realize its transcendental aspirations." The keyword is NOBILITY, and he states "the degree is spiritual exaltation through some dramatic or vital service to all."
Of some crucial importance is the coming Full Moon occurs only 8 hours before Uranus goes stationary direct at 9 Aries. The reason this is a very important point in time for all of us is because any time an outer planet goes stationary direct or retrograde it marks a global “sea change” in those affairs.
For Uranus, it indicates a point in our individuation process where we’ve finished the review we’ve been doing since last Summer, and now move forward into a new phase of living that individuality. The Liberator moves forward!!
So make the most of the next few days, since a lot could very well fall into place AND you could have a good time in the process! Enjoy!!
