monday december 17th-
the first aspect of the day and week is exact at 6:54pm when mercury in sagittarius semisquares pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. this can make for intense communications, pessimistic thinking and power/control dynamics in interactions with others. make use of the positive side of pluto and use this astrology to dive deep in therapy, research, investigate and get to the bottom of the Truth.
tuesday december 18th-
there are no major aspects today.
wednesday december 19th-
the sun in sagittarius squares chiron in pisces at 2:02pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. sun/chiron can bring up old wounds and pain around our sense of self, independence and ability to make our mark on the world. the sun in sadge feels it is limitless- but chiron in pisces can bring up some deep wounds and pain that also feel never ending. being compassionate with ourselves and others is key. willingness to face what we avoid facing can be deeply healing right now.
the sun in sagittarius quincunxes the north node in cancer at 7:49pm, creating tension between the conscious self and ego that wants to rise above and move on (in sadge fiery fashion) and the north node in cancer that reminds us that our evolution is tied up with feeling our feelings and getting intimate with our emotions. where the north node in cancer is a FEELER- the sun in sadge is prefers to rise above. avoiding deep feelings- particularly grief and sadness- can cause us to turn to addictions or escapism to numb out. with the sun in tense aspect to the chiron/north node trine today being willing to see where/what we bypass and then instead of turn away turning towards is recommended.
thursday december 20th-
mercury in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries at 4:27am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. mercury/pluto on monday and mercury/eris today can make for some potent energy in communication the first few days of this week. eris reveals the shadow but she also can also exacerbate conflict. navigate the communication/thinking terrain with consciousness!
venus in scorpio sesquiquadrates chiron in pisces at 7:19am, creating tension between the heart and the Wounded Healer. this can bring up big time old wounds and pain in relationship right now- with a need to get to the underlying Source of the wound. if you want to heal you have to FEEL. this is a great time for shadow work and consciously going within to get to the root of things. this is NOT a good time to escape, turn to addictions to numb out, spiritually bypass, or play the victim/martyr.
the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde uranus in aries at 8:22am, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Great Awakener! sun/uranus is great for embracing change, letting go of the past and finding agency in our lives! opportunities for shift should be embraced today.
friday december 21st-
venus in scorpio trines neptune in pisces at 9:11am, aligning the lower heart with the Higher Heart in harmonious ways! venus/neptune is amazing for romance, creativity, compassion, Unconditional Love and service. with both bodies in water signs emotional waters run deep and so does our heart connection with ourselves and others. over the next few days venus links with both neptune and pluto- bringing both height and depth to our hearts and our capacity to Love.
at 9:37am mercury cojoins jupiter at 9’34 sagittarius, aligning the mind and intellect with the planet of expansion and positivity! typically mercury/jupiter is great for socializing, traveling, having fun and enjoying life! yet mercury triggers the jupiter/neptune square over the next 4 days (through the 24th) which can bring a need to be discerning and not just see the Love and Light but also see the shadow. this is not a time to gamble big in Love or money- but rather to ask questions and make sure you are getting the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth. it’s also equally important to make sure we are telling the Truth and nothing but the Truth- as karma will be seeded if we do not. be aware and navigate with care.
the sun moves out of sagittarius and into capricorn at 2:22pm, marking the Solar Gate of Yule and Winter Solstice and a new yearly solar cycle commencing (in the southern hemisphere this is the Solar Gate of Litha and Summer Solstice)! the sun in capricorn is hard working, disciplined, responsible and authoritative. this is the sign of the mountain goat who gets to the top of the mountain no matter how hard the journey is. we have staying power right now and we can focus on what we want to build in our lives. just watch out for the shadow side of the sun in capricorn: being overly austere, rigid, controlling, perfectionist and emotionally repressed.
jupiter in sagittarius sextile vesta in aquarius at 7:23pm, linking the planet of expansion with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. with both bodies in super independent signs we have support in being innovative, outside of the box and progressive! jupiter is where we are lucky and have positive energy incoming and vesta is where we are focused and deeply committed. when we commit to our personal and collective evolution this astrology can really help us up level in life!
saturday december 22nd-
the full moon at 0’49 cancer is exact at 9:48am PST, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in sagittarius square neptune. that new moon had an expansive, larger than life quality but also a tendency to escapism, denial, delusion and spiritual bypassing. this full moon is about emotional reality and what IS- not what was/could be/might be/used to be. this full moon is opposite saturn and square mars/chiron- bringing up some heavy and intense emotions around home, family, attachments and where we are avoiding facing reality. luckily the full moon links with uranus- providing release when we are embrace change and let go of the past (but not prematurely as a means to avoid taking responsibility for the past). for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days to a week before the full moon is exact.
sunday december 23rd-
pluto in capricorn trines stationary juno in taurus at 12:05pm, aligning the planet of transformation and evolution with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. profound energy is present today for transformation through intimacy and deepening in our own commitment to our personal and relationship evolution. juno is stationary today- she is retrograde but stations direct in the evening. this brings themes of partnership, marriage, finances and more into focus. with both bodies in earth signs the focus is on material abundance and practical ways we can show up for the evolution and transformation present right now in our personal life, financial life, career life and more. use the astrology wisely!
at 1:47pm chiron in pisces trines the north node in cancer, aligning the Wounded Healer planetoid with the north node of destiny, evolution and growth! this amazing aspect supports us in healing and really dealing with unresolved energies and emotions from the past (last year/last decade/childhood/a previous lifetime) so that we can truly heal and move on. the north node in cancer reminds us that evolution is tied up with intimacy with our emotions, our vulnerability, needs and feminine self. this is an excellent aspect for inner work, therapy and shadow work. of course we have also had uranus square the nodes this month (exact 12/2) so while some areas of life are healing and expanding- others have been radically altering and even ending with final separation. dealing with grief, sadness and any other emotions that hold us back or hold us down is key to evolution right now.
at 6:55pm juno stations direct at 20’19 taurus- bringing the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage into focus. juno stations in trine aspect to pluto- bringing potential for profound evolution and transformation in relationships (financial, business, marriage and more). pluto is the roto rooter of the zodiac- he comes in to clear out the stuck, stagnant crap. wherever things are blocking evolution in relationships of all kinds- today is a great day for clearing and healing. go deep in connection- with yourself, with others and the world around you. profound evolution is possible right now!
mercury in sagittarius sesquiquadrates the north node cancer at 11:19pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the north node of destiny. pay attention to communication, information and thinking today. be aware of where you want to rise above and by pass emotions or feelings. the north node in cancer demands we FEEL in order to heal. don’t check out!
