We enter December 2017 carrying with us fire energy, ambitions, quite intense emotions and even sensitive memories. We all have somewhere in our chart an area where major changes occurred last month; practically a restoration took place, a total transformation, or a list an important steps in this direction. In spite of the effort to support the intensity of our feelings, we seem to be more open and flexible to burn and regenerate the old patterns, eventually to rebirth our intentions and to adopt a new circumstances.
Starting with December 1st we could feel an intense energy that could balance the way we act or the way we drive towards the things we want to achieve. December 1st emphasizes a major negative aspect: Mars will opposite Uranus (Libra/ Aries 25˚). This could bring a provocation to suddenly change some elements from our daily routines. Uranus being in transit is in Mars sign, also Mars is in Venus sign, and exactly on December 1st Venus will enter in Sagittarius. So, the day seems to be dedicated to Venus, which may make us attract into our life a large amount of harmony; to extend our capacity of love, to value knowledge and to appreciate everything that seems wise. At this point we may intensify our feelings, and sensitivity. It almost seems like we will gradually prepare for the Full Moon that will occur on December 3rd (11˚40” Gemini).
This Full Moon may bring a very important message for some of us, because this Full Moon is part of a very important pattern aspect called “Finger of the World” (Moon in Gemini will square Neptune in Pisces. The focal point of this pattern aspect is Mars, which will sesqui-quadrates both Neptune and Moon). Hence, minor obstacles may occur in terms of our actions that could affect our life goals and our beliefs. Also, it could require an adjustment regarding our habits.
At a worldwide level the day could emphasize an important diplomatic message.
Nevertheless on December 3rd Mercury, the ruler of this Full Moon will be retrograde starting with 29˚18” Sagittarius. It will be in retrograde motion until December 23rd when will reach 13˚10” Sagittarius. Hence, those two days, December 3rd and December 23rd will be very important days in December. Actually, this entire time frame will be important in terms of communication, negotiation, agreements, contracts, documents review, learning process, travel or trips.
Going forward, on December 9th Mars will enter in Scorpio, one of its own signs. Mars being at home could naturally act in a more powerful manner, and not necessary a diplomatic one. Also, Mars gives this sign a different kind of intensity, symbolically amplifying our expression of passion, competition and fighting spirit. Moreover, it could determine us to cut off (sort out) intensely emotions or things that could block our ambition.
Furthermore, we could drive our interest into a powerful emotional circumstances or even situations that may have a secretive nature. Nevertheless it could give us courage to defend our own actions or even could stimulate our creative energy.
On December 18th there is a New Moon that will occur at 26˚31” Sagittarius sign.
This New Moon is part of a pattern aspect called Stellium, which means that it will conjunct Venus, Saturn and, of course the Sun. Also, it will trine Uranus and will square Chiron. More than that, this Sagittarius New Moon will semi-square Jupiter, which is the ruler of this New Moon. So, the day may open up some new elements, it may extend our generosity, optimism, beliefs and nevertheless our general view about life could take a gracious form. Some of us (depending of each personal chart) could even have external support to change important life’s elements or to change habits. On the other hand, the day may require some adjustment in terms of expectations, even work on our persona, in order to expand our understanding. All in all, the day may give us a sense of restlessness and the desire to expose ourselves to a new experience. However, the excitement of this day could open up some old wounds that could affect changes in the future. Some of us could unfold old memories, Therefore old things may appear in our spectrum, things that may affect in some way our new beginnings, or at least may delay our future plans.
Then, on December 20th – Saturn enters in its own sign Capricorn. This is the most powerful placement of Saturn that could motivate us to approach life with a deep sense of patience. Saturn rules those things, which provide structure and definition. So, symbolically it could push us to persevere in our discipline in order to achieve the things we have being working on for a while. So, on a positive note, this Saturn’s position may help us materialize our long time dreams. Capricorn is the sign of persevering ambition, which often does not feel fulfilled until it has reached the top of its chosen profession. Saturn being in his own territory will bring superior results, professionally. The only condition here is to work hard and have discipline.
At the universal level, Saturn is linked with authority, tradition, conservatism, law and order. It has influence over the police, law enforcement and government institutions such as the civil service. Also, it symbolizes the older people in a nation and the country’s attitude towards them. So during the next few years you can see or hear a lot about everything I have mentioned above.
On December 22nd – Sun enters in Capricorn, a placement where it may cooperate very well with our professional ambition. It will activate our practicality and sense of patience. If you have a project at work, this could be a good time to review and to build a strategy. You may have an individual progress and solid results.
On December 23rd Mercury goes direct starting with 13˚10” Sagittarius. This could be very significant day especially for people who have planets in or around 13˚mutable sign (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo).
On December 25th – Venus enters in Capricorn. It will stay in Capricorn until Jan 17th 2018. During this frame time we could work hard to stabilize our values and to resolve some relationships issues, money matters, income, investment.
As we can see, at the end of December month many planets will transit through Capricorn sign. Capricorn is earth sign, has cardinal modality and negative polarity. So, at the end of December, we are exposed to the possibility of connecting with strong life elements. It could be tough, and a lot of effort could be required. However, we may discover and use our capacity to find the best resolution, to stabilize things, to resolve an eventual conflict and to give a material form to our intentions.
Overall, this could be a productive time if you work hard. You could find enough focus to structure the time and to control any situation.
