December 2017

D
ecember opens with Mars in Libra opposite Uranus retrograde in Aries. These two planets provide the fuel for arguments and accidents. Some of us are sure to come to the edge of what is unacceptable and react in ways that surprise those who are the object of our irritations. Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn are pulled in many directions and will have to choose a course of action. These first days of December can be dangerous. Stay vigilant at this time.

At the same time that
Mars is opposite Uranus, Venus moves into Sagittarius and transits this sign until December 24. Our attitudes about love now move from intensity to a more spontaneous light hearted way of relating. Sagittarius is looking extra attractive while Aries and Leo have just the right amount of sex appeal. The rest of us better ask someone how we look before we leave the house as we may be about to commit a fashion don't this holiday season.

December is a time of big shifts in the zodiac, but most of us will be occupied worrying about
Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius December 3 - 22. Mercury retrograde gets a bad rap and often when bad things happen to good people they ask if Mercury is retrograde.

Just remember that
Mercury retrograde wants us to pay attention and he is all too ready to point out where we forgot to handle details. This comes as computer crashes without backups, delays in travel, and miscommunications that cause us to wring our hands. Since this Mercury retrograde occurs during the holiday season, get your shopping done early. Otherwise, gifts will not fit and return lines are going to be long. Travel is going to be extra arduous. Airline computers are sure to go on the blink and delays due to weather might keep many of us in airports past the big event. It might be smart to travel for New Year’s and stay home for Christmas.

The
full Moon occurs December 3 at 9:47 a.m. CST at eleven degrees Gemini. The reality that time is running out has all of us putting our focus on what must be accomplished. Many of us are finishing projects and while others are preparing for the end of the year. Chores and tasks must be done now so that you can find a balance between work and play this month. This full Moon has those born early in Gemini hopping. Gemini will be more wired than usual. Gemini's fellow mutable signs Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are tasked and stressed with details that cannot be ignored. This full Moon is square Neptune in Pisces so many of us are going to have to talk about how we feel. Perhaps this could lead to better understandings with the ones we love.

Mercury backs over Saturn December 6 creating responsibilities we may not want and news will not be joyful. This goes double for Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Luckily Mercury is sextile Mars and Mars is sextile diligent Saturn. Experts can help us with our challenges but if we just remain determined and cautious we can get past the pitfalls that stand in our way.

Mercury retrograde, is trine Uranus retrograde in Aries, December 10. Uranus provides “aha” moments and sometimes brings us surprises. But this easy angle between these two planets allows us to consider alternative courses of action. Social events are stimulating. Don't stand in a corner being shy or you will miss out on meeting exciting people.

The excitement and stimulation continue as the
Sun and Mercury connect December 12. This is a busy time whether you are involved in the holiday spirit or are stuck at the office working on the next big idea. Just recognize that in many cases we will have to jump to changing circumstances.

Jupiter in Scorpio is trine Neptune in Pisces December 2. This astrologer thinks this is quite appropriate to be happening at this time of year and season when compassion and concern for our fellow man is on many of our minds. There will be talk of resolution and many good deeds will be done. Life will seem synchronous when you least expect. Many of us will be inspired by music while some of us will take a cruise and hit the midnight buffet. With Jupiter trine Neptune inflation is possible This is a long term aspect that we will feel most of this month and again next May and August.

Probably the most serious event of December is that
Saturn moves into Capricorn December 19 through December 2020. Saturn is the planet of limitation and slow processes for long and drawn out situations or projects. Luckily, and I do mean luckily, Saturn rules Capricorn and can be more productive transiting this sign than other signs. Think of a Saturn event as carefully placing bricks on top of one another. Sometimes they fall and it is frustrating and you have to figure out better engineering methods. After a while you step back and you have the Great Wall Of China.

While
Saturn moves through Capricorn we will see a building and redesigning of structures. This includes government structures, boundaries of countries and the economy. The economy generally retracts with Saturn moving through Capricorn, but hopefully some of these entities that make our rules will be streamlined and cleared of the outdated rules. The last time Saturn transited Capricorn was 1988 to 1991 and before that 1959 to 1961. Saturn skims off the fat and fluff. Values will be recalculated. Saturn in Capricorn brings steady growth to Virgo and Taurus. Capricorn is going to grow up while Aries and Libra are on the slow process to change what is outmoded. Cancer needs to start over and lay a new and improved foundation in the three years ahead.

Mars moves through Scorpio December 9 to January 26. While Mars moves through Scorpio its feast or famine, love or hate, chocolate or jalapeño. Life will proceed from high to low to high during these days. Cancer, and Pisces are a bit less intense so they are able to enjoy a smoother time accomplishing what it is they want. The rest of us must be able to take off the pressure and don't push too hard as others will push back. However, Mars trine Neptune December 28 softens the push as we turn to our spiritual strength to get the job done especially when it comes to helping people who need help. People who have less than the rest of us are sure to be in the news at this time.

Venus in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces December 10. This is one of those dreamy days that are ecstatic. Enjoy the bliss for it is not permanent. By December 15 Mercury conjuncts Venus in Sagittarius and you want to tell someone you appreciate them and maybe even love them. Make sure you mean it.

The
Sun in Sagittarius is trine Uranus in Aries December 16. The Sun and Uranus together here are cause for expanding your world view and making new connections. Venus in Sagittarius follows suit and trines Uranus creating joy December 20. If you are invited to a party, go.

The
new Moon at twenty-six degrees Sagittarius happens at 12:30 a.m. CST December 18. This begins the last lunar cycle of 2017. The new Moon always brings in new energies and themes. This cycle is one of broadening our life experience. New people, cultures, and philosophies require that we say “yes” to life. Just don't get side tracked by dogma that actually inhibits your growth and then think you know it all. You don't have all the answers.

The
Sun enters Capricorn December 21. This is the shortest day of the year as we start the trek back to the longest day of the year six months from now. While the Sun moves through Capricorn we are interested in the results of current and past projects. Time to tally up the sales for the year and consider the bottom line as one year ends and 2018 begins. Capricorn is starting off the next year experience with
a challenging plan while Virgo and Taurus generally have smooth sailing.

At the same time the
Sun crosses Saturn. This restrictive aspect requires us to take responsibility and do our duty. There no straying from the way things have been done in the past. Venus enters Capricorn and conjuncts Saturn December 25 requiring us to do things we may not want to do. This is not the year to tell the family you are not coming home for the holidays. Buck up and do what you got to do this year.
