neptune in pisces parallels the south node in pisces at 6:11am, making an energetic conjunction (aspect by declination not degree) between the planet of mysticism and illusion and the karmic south node. this aspect is reminiscent of the neptune/south node conjunction that occurred in november. i wrote the following about the conjunction by degree in my november forecast and it applies right now. because neptune made an aspect by degree in november and declination this month we have a super aspect (meaning more powerful than usual) between these two in the last 2 months of 2016! “from 11/3-17 we have neptune aligning with the mean and true nodes- making this time spanning election time in the US an interesting one to say the least. neptune/south node aligns the planet of spirituality and illusion with the karmic south node. this transit has been building all of fall- bringing out the extreme shadow side of neptune/pisces: denial, delusion, avoidance of reality, playing the victim or the martyr, mass or personal deception, spiritual by passing, avoiding accountability, escapsim and turning to addictions to numb out and not have to deal with reality. overdoing all of these things keeps us from aligning with our personal and collective north node path of discernment, integrity, self honesty and commitment to being of service. steer clear of checking out and be willing to call others out when they are doing that as well. the neptune fog is THICK right now and it’s hard to see which way is up and which way is down. instead of making hard and fast decisions now it’s best you sit with all that arises, turn within and listen to your intuition and allow the fog to settle first. watch out for mass or personal delusion. also make sure you are not the one being deceptive and dishonest (it will karmically cost you and possibly entrench you further in karmic patterns you have the power to break free from right now!). and if you find yourself seemingly the only one seeing things clearly trust your gut and follow your instincts even if no one else is doing so!”
at 10:10am the sun in sagittarius trines recently gone direct ceres in aries, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. there is a focus on home, family, safety, security and the environment right now. being able to see the Truth of matters and deal with them by taking direct action is supported with the sun/ceres aspect today!
tuesday december 13th-
venus in aquarius quincunxes the north node in virgo at 12:21pm, bringing tension between our need for freedom and independence and our need for self mastery, integrity and growth. venus in aquarius can be rebellious and sometimes the path of growth requires that we buckle down, grow up and stick with lessons that are boring or incredibly difficult so that we can make it through the eye of the needle and move all the way through. opportunities to see where our desires or need to do what we want to do is at odds with our evolutionary path of inner work and service is key. the pull to old patterns of the past is strong- being able to see them for what they are and choose new patterns and a new path is the journey to mastery right now.
the full moon in gemini is exact at 4:05pm. with the sun/moon opposition in sagittarius/gemini there is a focus on thoughts, lower mind, Higher Mind and discerning Truth! this full moon is intense as it is opposite saturn and square chiron- triggering the saturn/chiron square that is exact on 12/28 and carries over into all of 2017. this heavy hitter transit brings us face to face with our deepest wounds and pain and biggest shadow dynamics. saturn demands integrity and commitment to work on oneself in order to attain self-mastery. chiron demands awareness and work oneself in order to heal. this full moon is no joke! if you have not seen the lunar insight i wrote on this full moon you can find that here- https://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/full-moon-gemini-going-beyond-surface/
at 6:50pm chiron in pisces contraparallels ceres in aries, making an energetic opposition between the Wounded Healer planetoid and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. big wounds and pain can be up right now in the collective, regarding Mother Earth and the environment. this can also play out in intense home/family situations and/or deep things coming up around that which is not resolved from our childhood past. on thursday chiron parallels ceres and this is due to ceres crossing the ecliptic tomorrow (wednesday). when a planet or asteroid is on the ecliptic it is extra powerful in it’s express. considering ceres just stationed direct last week and ceres is in a triple conjunction alignment with uranus (the revolutionary) and eris (the Goddess of discord)- ceres has a lot going on right now. the Highest expression of ceres in aries making all these powerful aspects is embracing and embodying the warrior/activist archetype. be willing to fight for what you believe in and stand up for those who are weaker than you. use this fiery energy to be the voice for the voiceless- your own inner child, the environment, children, animals and more!
the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde eris in aries at 8:10pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of discord and chaos. luckily this aspect is harmonious- bringing a release valve to anger, rage and fiery emotions that need healthy expression. this is great astrology for having confidence to make radical changes! stand in your power and align with Truth- the Universe has your back!
mercury in capricorn semisextiles juno in sagittarius at 10:47pm, making this a great evening to communicate in relationships about needs, values and how to find middle ground. with mercury in serious capricorn but juno in independent sadge- we need to find balance between connection/commitment and freedom/space. mercury is about to station retrograde and he does so in close aspect to juno- making the coming mercury retrograde journey a time to rethink, review and revise contracts, relationships and commitments in our lives. stay aware of what is arising in these areas of life right now- as insight into the coming 3 week retrograde journey and how it will play out for your personally can be in-coming.
wednesday december 14th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in airy, cerebral and changeable gemini at the start of the day and then moves into watery, emotional and sensitive cancer at 4:09am. the only moon aspect today is a trine to neptune in the evening (7:17pm)- which is quite lovely for emotional connection, spiritual pursuits, intuition and introspection. take time to retreat and reflect tonight if you can- with yourself or with close beloveds.
thursday december 15th-
chiron in pisces parallels ceres in aries at 7:06am, echoing the opposite declination aspect that occurred two days ago. due to cere’s crossing of the ecliptic yesterday we have her aspecting chiron by declination twice in a matter of days. when a planet or asteroid is on the ecliptic the energies that body symbolizes are in strong focus. there are big things up with ceres right now with the spotlight on home/family situations, safety and security, the environment, Mother Earth, the food and water supply and more. with chiron involved with ceres we are asked to look at where we are burying our heads in the sand- not wanting to see what is going on around us and possibly not wanting to take responsiblity for our part in things. pay close attention to what is going on in your personal life and the world stage this week. it could be significant.
venus in aquarius semisextiles neptune in pisces at 11:24am, aligning the lower heart with the Higher Heart in harmonious ways. venus/neptune can be romantic, creative, mystical and intuitive. this is lovely energy for understanding the realm of Spirit and Soul and seeing people and situations from the Higher Heart perspective. the shadow side can be when we see from this Higher perspective but avoid facing the shadow and reality- so being grounded and attending to what IS is key. with both bodies in the last 2 signs of the zodiac we can best channel this energy into community service, altruism and healing! instead of playing healer with people in intimate relationship where we are doing that in exchange for love- focus on giving to the world without needing anything back. that is what true altruism is.
friday december 16th-

saturday december 17th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in fiery, passionate and creative leo and makes all harmonious aspects today! she links with venus, jupiter, saturn and uranus- making it a great day to have fun, enjoy life and spend time with others!
sunday december 18th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in fiery, creative leo at the start of the day and opposes mars at 8:55am making for a feisty and perhaps emotionally volatile morning. the moon moves into earthy, humble, service-oriented virgo at 9:52am and the emotional energy shifts. the rest of the day is a great time to focus on organization, efficient, health and well being.
have a lovely week ahead!
