This week began with December 17’s Aries Moon square Pluto in Capricorn, followed by the Moon trine the Sagittarius Sun, & then its conjunction with Uranus in Aries–a bit of an emotional roller coaster that hopefully enlightens us all in some way, particularly about our relationships!
The Sadge Sun squares Chiron in Pisces on the 19, calling us to utilize the inherent tension between our ego-oriented selves and our inner hurt or pain to develop stronger emotional boundaries. This means putting up a façade when we’re hurt doesn’t necessarily help us heal over the long term as much as will a sense of self-compassion, self-acceptance, & the elimination of guilt.
When the Sun trines Uranus on December 20 we may be in for a happy surprise, a welcome change to our routine, or an aha! moment meant to further enlighten us in some way. And when Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune on December 21 notice any increased loving & charitable emotions toward family, friends, and/or the world at large, as this is an aspect that opens one’s heart to the concept of “there but for the grace of God go I…”
Mercury meets with Jupiter in optimistic Sadge later that day, just before the Sun enters sobering Capricorn & the winter solstice occurs. This meeting is bound to be about something important and an announcement of some kind may be made, so keep your ears open and stay optimistic!
The Sun’s move December 21 sets the tone for the next month, as he joins Pluto & Saturn already in the sign of serious, responsible, “no pain, no gain” Capricorn. Our thoughts may turn inward now, so best to remind ourselves of our love for others by making a gratitude list while the Sun’s here to prevent negative thoughts and to continue to build a solid strong foundation when the Capricorn Sun meets both Saturn AND Pluto later this month…
December 21’s shortest day and longest night of the year is followed by the Cancer Full Moon on December 22 when we’re asked to release any externally-derived negative self-images in order to replace them with a more realistic, positive, & conscious understanding of who we really are.
For a clearer perspective of this, here’s a hint: We are ALL solar, unique, individual, creative beings here for the purpose of growing in conscious about our mission in life and what makes our us—meaning our true soul—TRULY happy!
Like the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, the winter solstice reminds us spring is not really all that far away. No matter how bleak or dire the dark may seem here in the northern hemisphere, the literal growing of the light will soon become obvious. All we need do is hold on and have solid faith that the Sun will come out tomorrow…
