Dec 1, 2018 – Dec 31, 2018
These are interesting times from an Astrological Standpoint and December of 2018 is no exception, mind you things should get a little easier or at least our day to day activities will start to calm down a bit, as the shifts occurring are going to help pull us from the strangeness of Retrograde madness that we have been in for so long.
The first week of December we are already dealing with the Goddess herself Venus moving into the sign of Scorpio. This means all you sexy Scorpio’s will be even more sexy than usual! Ha! Venus in this sign makes for an extra attractive next several weeks for all the Signs, but if you are a Scorpio Sun or Rising Sign you should talk advantage of it.
Also this month, our minds can be a bit obsessed with issues that are both fascinating and disturbing, when mental Mercury in Retrograde (backwards) moves back into the sign of Scorpio on Dec 1st, this brings back old theories, ideas, and suspicions about what truth lies beneath the surface. To learn more about Mercury’s shift back into the sign of Scorpio check out my website blog Mercury in Scorpio!
MERCURY MOVES OUT OF RETROGRADE!!!!!
Mercury stations direct on December 6th and leaves its Retrograde cycle. At this point, Uranus in fiery Aries will be the ONLY PLANET left in RETROGRADE until early January 2018, Woohoo! This will be a welcome break from all those planets in Retrograde starting last summer through late fall! 2018 has been a strong time for introspection and insight into ourselves, it was also a time of confusion. But we will be able to have more clarity around the way we both think and feel, and this helps us move forward and meet our goals for the upcoming year.
Have you been having intense Dreams lately? Lots of folks have been having intense or vivid dreams lately, some about old lovers, family members, or friends that they haven’t seen for a while. Some of these dreams are more soul visitations, where we meet up with friends or lovers and just simply hang out and play catch up! With Mars and Neptune slowly coming together, it can bring in quite potent and vivid dreams or visitations from those who have crossed over. It’s a good idea to write them down because they can have special meaning later.
There is a bit of challenging energy coming together from Dec 3-5 when the Sun makes a tense Square to fiery Mars and Neptune! Sneaky more unethical folks can be sneaking around trying to get anything they can from you. Pay attention and watch for those folks who claim to be something they are not or who are not what they appear to be. The more Narcissistic, underhanded people will be sniffing around more so than usual. This influence also brings a sort of sneaky energy out of the people you already know or are associated with in some way, or even those folks you do business with! So again pay attention and don’t let someone take advantage of you.
There’s a New Moon coming together in the sign of quick-thinking Sagittarius, around midnight on Dec 6th here in the United States, or in the wee hours of the morning on the 7th depending on what time zone you live in. This is the most opportune time to Set Intentions for new beginnings and to do some sort of manifesting ritual. Basically, you’re just working with the Cosmic energies of the Moon in one way or another!
This particular New Moon is heavily influenced by another connection or what’s called a conjunction between Mars and Neptune both in Pisces. This helps us focus more so on our spirituality as we can feel like doing something that helps us connect into the Universal energies, usually, this is a time when we have a lot of faith and our beliefs are stronger more so than usual with it being Sagittarius Season and all, but we tend to forget the truth about why we celebrate these Holidays in the first place, even though our faith in certain higher purposes or powers is stronger. In all actuality no matter what you believe in or faith you follow, this is a time that marks a new season and the Winter Solstice, but these influences just might help us discover the true meaning around why we celebrate the Holidays around the globe, and it’s much more than just buying each other gifts!
But a warning comes along with this energy, as folks tend to also overindulge and eat and drink too much. Do Not Drink And Drive during this time. Be cautious around folks who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This is a great weekend for Psychic Readings and Spiritual Classes, or for doing anything that helps with spiritual development, it’s just not so good for vices.
There’s a long-term tense Square connection between reckless Uranus and the master of escape Neptune, it’s brought back to life for the last time on December 15th. This aspect has been setting the bar pretty high around raising our consciousness or awareness since mid-2017 and will run strong through mid-2019. But this has been a long time coming as this energy started actually a long time ago back in 1993, when these two planets aligned in Capricorn.
The Solstice, Holidays, and New Years Astrological Preview
The Winter Solstice is on Friday, December 21st when the Sun Enters Capricorn and it officially becomes “Capricorn Season,” but at the exact same time loving Venus and dreamy Neptune are in perfect harmony. And mental Mercury is conjunct Jupiter, this is all some pretty amazing energy, to be honest folks. These planetary combinations bring in an extra dose of love, happiness, and good fortune for all of us to share.
Then the Full Moon occurs on Saturday the 22nd, in its home sign of more sensitive Cancer. During the Christmas Holiday time, the Cosmos lines up and brings in the energy of fun as we feel more like being social, so throwing some sort of Holiday shindig in your own home can go quite well, since the Moon will be in the sign that loves its shell or home the most, Cancer. Traveling can be much easier the week before the Christmas Holiday, than the actual week of Christmas, as there are going to be delays and other unforseen obstacles for traveling during that time.
This Full Moon period has a slightly restrained quality, with the masculine facets of the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn opposing the Cancer Moon’s feminine, intuitive energy.
On Christmas Day, the Moon will be in more generous Leo and even the rest of that week seems to be pretty calm, at least from an Astrological viewpoint!
New Year’s Eve things change quite quickly when aggressive Mars moves into its home sign of fiery Aries, watch out folks if you don’t know how to handle this all or nothing kind of energy, then you can have some issues. Mars sparks the energy up to have a rocking New Year’s Eve but there will also be arguments, debates, and wild events with this more aggressive energy influencing us so strongly!
