There is an essential sense of needing to get reorganized this month, as Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius and a long range objective (Saturn) of the last few years (since 2015, more or less,) seeks resolution. Mercury is instrumental, and although it does go to and fro, it does so in order make sure the job gets done right, and that nothing is left by the wayside. Saturn and Uranus remain close companions through next Summer, a collaboration that began exactly one year ago and involves finding new ways to solve old problems is continuing to get tweaked, modified and made better, more innovative. This year was the idea generating phase of the cycle, the prelude to Summer 2018, when these two connect through Earth signs, thus manifesting the concepts developed over this prior year.

Mercury throughout it’s retrograde cycle makes three full contacts to both planets. This enables the articulation of the intention of these disparate energetic fields. Mercury can almost be seen as an intermediary between them, gathering information from one, ushering it off to the other, which suggests some kind of negotiation or deal is being struck. If you consider the almost inimical nature of these two planets (conservatism/radicalism) it’s clear to see why such a compromise must be made before they can work together effectively. Using the dates below a sort of pattern emerges, Mercury and Uranus cook up an idea, then Saturn reality checks it, to see if it can really work, (twice). Then Uranus makes some modifications, and a final check occurs January 13th, and something pretty big manifests at this time. Make a note of these dates and see how it works out for you!

November 25 – Mercury trine Uranus
28 – Mercury conjunct Saturn
December 6 – Mercury (RX) conjunct Saturn
10 – Mercury (RX) trine Uranus
January 6 – Mercury trine Uranus
13 – Mercury conjunct Saturn (2’ Capricorn)

It is of incredible significance the third aspect occurs in Capricorn, as it suggests what is being brought into being is tangible and has moved beyond the idea phase into something that can be implemented in reality. Whatever the Mercury retro cycle throws at you this month (and it’s a pretty mild one overall) just bear with it and gather information and facts with an eye to mid January for a successful outcome. Venus, incidentally, joins the conversation as well, trine Uranus on the 20th and conjunct to Saturn on the 25th. This suggests we get help through relationships or material resources that assist the efforts at hand.

Sagittarius oversees the festivities of the month, which is appropriate for the holiday season. With Sun, Mercury and Venus in the jovial and optimistic sign, there is much to celebrate, particularly after what has mostly been a worrisome and difficult year. Mars enters Scorpio on the 9th, bringing a more intensified overtone to the atmosphere, but at least cosmetically the ambience should essentially be bright and cheerful. With Mars in Scorpio, there will be reminders that something needs to be dealt with, something essential is going through transformation. This transit can be a catalyst for immense personal discovery, especially in the context of an intimate relationship. Jupiter in Scorpio assists in maintaining confidence and objectivity, meanwhile, and especially during the beautifully harmonious Jupiter – Neptune trine at the beginning of the month, a deeply engrained feeling of peace and spiritual richness prevails.


The elephant in the room is of course the dynamic shift of Saturn into Capricorn on the 19th. This transit lasts through mid December 2020. Saturn represents an area of critical concentration and the necessity to materialize a goal or objective. It requires structure, discipline and patience to succeed at this and it can appear to be insurmountable at the beginning. To master Saturn is the essence of perseverance itself. Take things in tiny chunks, one little morsel at a time, but with the utmost of consistency. It’s practice that over time yields perfection and from Capricorn this is incredibly amplified.

Here you are looking at the placement of Capricorn in the personal chart as this will become the primary point of emphasis. Saturn first brings the issue of the matter to attention, usually by generating strife or anemic conditions around a topic that requires dramatic restructuring. While these periods can be fraught with challenges, they are meant to test the resilience of an area of life that could use a bit of bolstering. Pluto having recently transited this area over these last few years likely left it asunder, thus the Saturn transit might be precisely what is required to rehabilitate and restore in a specific area, just remember to build with stone, because plaster will crumble.

For what it’s worth, Saturn gets help. Jupiter and Uranus will both connect advantageously, generating a climate of support and growth, and there are no harsh or antagonistic beams coming in from other quarters. One of the harder things to manage with this placement is to take things all too seriously. The flip on Capricorn and what is most misunderstood about this sign is it’s hidden desire to play. While you are likely called upon to be purposeful and act with integrity, so long as you live up to that, there is little else to worry about about. Genuinely invest yourself in an outcome and attend to your work with the level of attention that is required of you. It may be hard at first if discipline is not your thing, but over time, it gets easier.

Have a great month and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

april2-copy   ARIES: March 20 – April 19

Travel is beneficial for you, though you might be hitting some difficulties or going back to places you are already familiar with through the last week of the month. The 15th, 16th and 20th are positive for a journey, maybe not as far as you had thought though. From the 21st, Saturn begins a long and meaningful transit of your arena of profession, demanding you take a new mantle of responsibility in order to achieve your highest ambitions. Events on the 21st and 25th will signal precisely what that will entail, and a partner may be the one who points it out to you. Mars from the 10th begins a transit through which you will transform as a close relationship mutates meaningfully, and you will be far more sensitized emotionally though the end of next January. Awareness and intuition on the 2nd highlight the road ahead.

may2-copy  TAURUS: April 20 – May 20

Shared finances could be in frame with a bit of confusion over the first few weeks regarding accounts or payments. The New Moon on the 18th offers a resolution or pact. The commitment you make is binding here, but you are ready. Those recently married could be trying to manage the intricacies of a joint account. When Mercury is direct from the 23rd, all falls into place. A great deal of passion is present in the relationship, while Mars transits Scorpio from the 9th. The 2nd and 28th are wondrous and magical. Vibrations are so strong between you and this person, and you can communicate effortlessly. On December 20th, Saturn moves into Capricorn, bestowing you with maturity and helping you bring structure into your life easily. The long range choices you make over the next few years will bring you to the pinnacle of your profession in 2020.

june2-copy  GEMINI: May 21 – June 20

Look to a very significant development in your work and professional life on the 2nd. Your creativity is blossoming and you could see a promotion as a result of remaining true to a vision only you could see. Mercury retrogrades in your area of committed relationships and there may be a reassessment or potentially a brief separation from your partner this month. Venus here will provide a loving ambience, and you will soon feel assured of the feelings of the one you love. The Full Moon on the 3rd falls in your sign, offering you incredible perspective on how far you have gone this year. Two weeks later, the New Moon begins a new chapter in your partnership. With Saturn leaving this area a few days later, the doors are open to a meaningful commitment. The self awareness you encountered over the last two years, while at times uncomfortable, has given you incredible maturity that can now be applied to a satisfying and enduring bond with your mate. Happy New Year!

july2-copy  CANCER: June 21 – July 22

Mars enters your pleasure sector on the 10th, and romance goes even deeper as you enter a new phase of activity or recreation. There is great desire to self expression, (a trend that really gets emphasized over the first two weeks of the New Year!) and opportunities emerge on the 2nd, 6th and 28th. Connect to a visionary source, and be diligent in your efforts. Work and professional attainment are also in frame, with very valuable opportunities on the 10th, 12th, 15th, 16th, and 20th to make a good impression through a positive approach to your work or an assignment. A new position can be on offer around the 18th, with the specifics coming more into focus from the 23rd, when Mercury is direct. Relationships get really serious after the 21st, as a pivotal change takes place when Saturn moves into Capricorn. This transit will ask you to explore the real validity of your partnerships, and there can be upheaval and change where a connection is no longer satisfying or able to move forward to the next stage of commitment. Events on the 21st and 25th signal these changes immediately, though much more is in store over the next 2 years.

aug2-copy  LEO: July 23 – August 22

Mercury retrograde impacts your creative realm, a project may require a redux or it may be time to reconsider arrangements affecting your children or their education. Favorable vibes preside side by side, as Venus and Sun cruise your arena of fun and recreation, you may just be enjoying a trip in the slow lane. Travel is possible between the 16th and 20th. Adventure may beacon unexpectedly around this time. A very prophetic or spiritual retreat could factor for you around the 2nd. Dreams and intuition reveal remarkable realms of creative inspiration. Mars in Scorpio can signal domestic conflict, a great deal of activity is taking place around the abode. You may be at odds with the family around the 25th. Tension or conflict may arise that seems to go against your wishes.

sep2-copy  VIRGO: August 23 – September 22

You gain a professional advantage over the Full Moon on the 3rd, and the hard work and dedication of the last few months can pay of in a lucrative way for you through promotion or recognition. Home continues to be a matter of significance, with some good developments, especially around the 16th and 20th. A New Moon on the 18th can signal a move. Unexpected expenses could rock the boat on the 1st. Have a little extra in tow to mitigate a shortfall. The 2nd is magically romantic. A weekend getaway with your spouse or partner will be positively wonderful. Love is definitely in the air. A big shift around the 20th sees a more serious mood prevail in your love life, as Saturn from Capricorn cements a relationship. Maturity will become paramount, and you may be preparing to start a family or take on an important creative role, getting more serious about your output than you have ever been before.

oct2-copy  LIBRA: September 23 – October 23

The year winds down on a note of pleasure and you can share the enjoyment of your many accomplishments with friends and associates, perhaps using the Mercury retrograde period (Dec 3 – 23) for catching up with old friends. Beautiful and exciting moments with your spouse or partner on the 16th and 20th make you merry! A very beneficial financial influence through a creative professional outlet on the 2nd opens the road to a very lucrative income through a project connected with inspiration and artistry. This elusive goal has likely been on your radar for years, but seemed to slip through your fingers several times. Watching it come to culmination now will be highly satisfying. The dedication to success will continue to be evident from the 10th through January, as you may be working harder than ever before to make the most of this opportunity. Contracts get sidelined during Mercury retro, so keep the lines of conversation open reserving judgement and decision making until after the first week of next month!

nov2-copy  SCORPIO: October 24 – November 21

Finances continue to be a hot topic, though things go sideways from the 3rd as Mercury retrograde impacts your wealth and resources sector. From the New Moon on the 18th, and over the following days it is all systems go. A new lease on life, and money can particularly be expected as restrictive Saturn moves out of this area on the 21st, freeing you to pursue your economic goals with renewed faith in a better outcome for the future. Mars in your sign from the 10th bestows determination and conviction for your activities and enterprises, infusing you with energy. This makes for a very good new year, with highly exciting developments forthcoming in January. You are visible and powerful as the year comes to closure. Love and pleasure are also highlighted, some of the sweetest vibes you’ve had in years come flowing in during the early days of this and next month. Enjoy the wave.

dec2-copy  SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

While it’s been an incredible year, you’ll notice a significant shift in the ambience around the 20th, when Saturn departs your sign and you breath that deep sigh of relief. You have survived one of the toughest cycles of your 29 year climb. Saturn revealed deficiencies in order to make you stronger, and what you have learned about yourself will now allow you to build security and a stable base for yourself over the next 2 years. This is a great month for you and through your relationships, The Full Moon on the 3rd and Venus in your sign through the 26th can augment brilliant culminations including a wedding or proposal. A wonderful new sense of self awareness on the 18th, during the New Moon in your sign, caps off the year for you, and it looks as though creative and romantic feelings at this time play a huge role in your sense of satisfaction and achievement.

jan2-copy  CAPRICORN: December 22 – January 19

A project comes to conclusion this month around the 3rd. Energy shifts from the hardworking period of these last several months to your private life and friendships. Attend the holiday parties, but save time for loved ones and family. You can also combine your interests: the 16th and 20th are ideal for entertaining at home. The New Moon on the 18th signals changes and illuminates the new order. From the 20th, Saturn comes to reside in your sign and it will be time to take on a mantle of authority and responsibility unlike anything you have ever know. For December, enjoy yourself and live a little. Tune into new directives on the 21st and 25th and allow the knowledge of how far you have come in the last year to guide you on your next adventure. Building in energy into the new year is very propitious energy for a major coup, prepare yourself for incredible things to come. Cheers!

feb2-copy  AQUARIUS: January 20 – February 18

This is a great time to catch up with old friends, especially if you have been too busy to keep up over the last year. Sun, Venus and Mercury all enhance your ties and there are good times to be had on the 6th, 10th, 15th, 16th and 20th. Mars activates and energizes your professional arena beginning on the 10th, an influence that carries through the end of January. Creativity and determination conspire to bring you success in this phase, especially around the 2nd, 6th and 28th. A visionary ideal seems to guide you and there is a strong sense of intuition prevailing. From December 21st you may seek respite from the demands of the outside world, as a transit of Saturn in Capricorn demands the appraisal of and restructuring of your own inner dominion. This 2-3 year transit will have you seeking a degree of privacy in order to deal with a confrontation of your own subconscious. Where matters have become unruly (Pluto inhabits this area, stirring up some weird psycho dramas for you,) you will now seek to understand and bring order to your spiritual dimension, discipline and meditation could lead the way to a profound healing. The 21st and 25th offer significant developments and these are appropriate times to seek the help you feel you might need.

march2-copy  PISCES: February 19 – March 20

It’s a great month for you professionally, and goals are finally within reach. A Mercury retrograde will stall progress through the end of the month, so you are still feeling things out where a promotion or new position is being negotiated. A New Moon on the 18th followed by Saturn’s exit from this area on the 20th signals a real change is possible now. A long standing way of life comes to an end and you release a burden this month. A new frontier is open and you get a strong indication on the 2nd of where you ideally would like to head next. Tie up loose ends and make arrangements on the 6th, 10th, 12th, 15th, 16th and 20th. Some of these are ongoing, but schedule meetings and see what is on offer. All the pieces will fall into place shortly. Saturn in Capricorn will be a more productive period for you, as the pressure of the last few years lifts, you can make progress and build alliances that will serve you in the future. The 28th is quite magical and ideal for making a wish come true. A magnificent period is unfolding for you, and so much of what you leave behind in the first few months of the year play a role in your success.

December is both beginning and ending, a month in which we see the resolution of the many themes and topics of 2016 fading and dissolving into memory, but also a time in which the major dynamic influences of 2017 begin to be revealed. The first of a series of alinements between Libra – Jupiter (opposite) Aries – Uranus with Saturn peeking in and assisting from Sagittarius occurs between the 24th and 26th of December. Mars from Aquarius, Sun from Sag. and then Venus from Aquarius all augment and support this very unique configuration, during which we begin to see a culmination of the enterprises and storylines that we initiated in June 2010. (These took firmer hold a bit later – January to March of 2013 were ripe for initiation and rooting down with innovative ideas and life choices.)

The ambience stimulated by Jupiter – Uranus is vitalizing, energetic, volatile and highly unstable. Saturn’s influence here suggests we’ll fortunately be moderated and taking a slower and more methodical approach as we reach this critical juncture for the journey we set out on in 2010. This aspect prevails through September 2017, and with the exception of Venus retrograde next Spring and the shift of the Lunar North Node to Leo, this is going to be the most significant force we are going to contend with over the next 10 months. (It’s more than enough to keep you busy, don’t even imagine it’s going to be a boring year!)


In the context of Joseph Campbell’s Heroic Journey, the opposition aspect symbolizes that we have reached the Second Threshold, a point of crisis and confronting the abyss, of death and rebirth. Material and other temptations may emerge to lure us from our quest. Saturn, meanwhile, has already moved into the position of receiving the reward. It is our long range efforts that begin to pay off, even if only modestly, and it is within that which we have invested immense if not immeasurable amounts of dedication, that will remind us that there is still treasure to be had if we stay the course. The hard and gritty lessons and determination required during the critical Saturn in Scorpio transit have begun to yield fruit. These fruits will nourish and inspire us over these next incredible 10 months as we attend to our heroic journey. The choice to cross the threshold will take us into The Other World, and in January 2021 we reach the point of Apotheosis. The maturity we gained for remaining true to the conviction of our quest assists us through during this incredible turning point. The Leo eclipse next February will tap into this configuration and offer a very exciting development!

The Sun, Venus and Mars all activate exciting new developments, though Venus and Mars are still at odds, remaining out of one another’s reach until mid April, in the midst of a very, very tough retrograde cycle. (It may in fact be a romantic prospect that brings us back from the brink during that challenging phase.) If the love and sex life are on the meh side of the spectrum, it’s likely because the yin/yang polarity of desire and ability to receive pleasure are in such incongruous spaces, and remain so for a few more months. Your own personal chart aspects notwithstanding, this is a tenuous phase in which to see to significant developments within relationships, especially with that Venus retrograde looming.

It would be incredibly bad form to ever suggest that if you feel love and have a relationship in which you can express these feelings in a healthy, affirming way that you should avoid doing so. Simply that the love and sex drives have disparate outlets right now, and if a relationship is not going as smoothly or gaining momentum as you had hoped it would, that this could provide a clue as to why. The end of December does feature some very positive Venus contacts, as the Goddess of Love locks into the Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn aspect and we get reinforcement (and perhaps resources) that augment our potential to take on the exciting prospect for adventure it represents. Again, it’s less likely this ties into a romantic scenario, but feelings will be very positive and make for spirited Yule festivities.


Let things develop by themselves.
Breathe deeply and let a picture arise in you
which shows you in a state of complete
fulfillment. Life will offer all you need to be
happy. Gerd Ziegler, handbook for the
Aleister Crowley Tarot

While we experience a significant culmination, there is also a strong sense of disintegration and closure as Mars from Pisces (December 19 – January 29) takes all the energy and influences stimulated over the last two years Mars cycle (begun February 19, 2015) and deconstructs these initiatives, offering resolution for what we have managed to accomplish since then. We are in the process of dissolving the prior cycle in preparation for the rebirth that occurs January 29th when Mars transits zero Aries. From Pisces, we return to the vastness of creation itself and the limitless potential of everything. The Ten of Cups is a positive indicator that our hearts overflow with joy and gratitude for what we reap at the closure of this cycle, and that fulfillment is within reach.

Mars represents the vitality and drive we have to achieve our aims or to get what we desire. In this last cycle we (hopefully) learned many things about what is and is not effective or constructive use of our energy, especially during this last retrograde period in April – June. Mars conjunct South Node on the 27th will provide a signal that an activity or association has run it’s course. There can be a setback or karmic occurrence at this time. What ever happens is only meant to adjust or modify the course or to release a fruitless endeavor. You’ll know inside. Energy will also be low, so keep your major initiatives on the burner until late February. When Mars engages the Jupiter – Uranus – Saturn aspect, it’s all systems go!!!

Energy now is directed inward, and guided by compassion and inspiration. You can make the most effective use of this time through creative work, reflection and cultivation of mystical and spiritual practices. Write some music, or get on that meditation kick you’ve been putting off. The psychic realm is active and intuition will be very strong in this phase. At it’s worst, this energy, because it is so receptive, can fall into the trap of illusions or be gullible to predators who perceive this vulnerability as weakness. This is a positive time for ritual, healing and purging. Also a good time to peace out in your girl cave and listen to Mazzy Star, feel free to hang this sign on the door:


MERCURY RETROGRADE: December 19 – January 8

If you’ve been frazzled by the super hectic pace of the last 5 weeks, you’ll notice things start to slow down at the onset of the month, and that either projects come complete or you otherwise have more time to catch up through mid month. As Mercury retrogrades on the 19th, it just misses contact with Pluto, so it seems a crucial agreement or decision will have to wait until the end of January. With the general quietude of Mars transiting Pisces, (and also Venus through early February) it looks like the next two months are about clearing the decks (or cleaning up the mess) in preparation for a period of much greater activity that arrives during the winter months.

Mercury will retrograde through January 8th. From there the dust clears and we can begin to move forward with things. Have a safe and wonderful New Year, and don’t forget to join me on for my new weekly astrology blog!

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE BY SIGN: (It is suggested you read for your ascendant too. If you are not sure, you can calculate your chart for free on

ARIES: Blissful social connections offer so much happiness for you this month. A holiday party can bring about a significant introduction to someone with partnership potential. Let the sparks fly and give this one time to grow into itself. You can lean on what you learned about commitments (and keeping them) in 2014 and have a better idea now of what you really have to offer. Professional matters and where you are heading become the hot topic of conversation, though this one takes a while to hammer out. Listen to offers (and to your own inner voice) through February. The conviction to make an enduring decision and rise to that challenge, will come in a few months time.

TAURUS: The buzz for you is profession and advancement, your big picture goals are in focus and a great deal of energy and enthusiasm can help you move towards a big milestone. An assignment or new job enhances your public profile, and this is a good time to take on an extra position. You might come into contact with someone who can help you up the ladder while doing a freelance gig, so keep your feelers out there. Forces behind the scenes, as well as your intuition are conspiring to your benefit. Spend some time with your confidantes or on your own to heed the important message being sent your way. Friends and associates can brighten your spirits. A connection may come to an end around the 27th. It’s in your best interest to walk away at this time.

GEMINI: After a pretty rough year, you finally hit the sweet spot. Life is very lively and exciting in this phase. A commitment may be deepening in this period, and this could be contributing to your satisfaction as well. A Full Moon in your sign on the 13th shows you how far you have come this year. It’s time to release a defeating pattern or activity associated with your career or vocational objectives. Events or indications around the 27th reveal the details. A better professional atmosphere prevails next month, though 2017 has a few tricks up it’s sleeve. (Give yourself till May to work out all the kinks!) Enjoy the camaraderie and social opportunities available at this time.

CANCER: Could be a long and winding road for a close or exclusive partnership is in store, Mercury retrograde sends out mixed signals about where you are headed with you know who! A serious, deep down and dirty conversation about your commitment needs to happen, but won’t until late January. Hang in there, babe. The more exciting news seems to taking place for you professionally, as a rather dry and dormant period for your career is coming to an end. Events around the beginning and end of the month offer incredible indications, seems you need to leave your comfort zone to make the most of the opportunities in store. A New Moon on the 29th signals changes in your status. See what January has in store before you buy that ring.

LEO: Partnerships are emphasized this month with really incredible social opportunities in store at both the beginning of the month as well as over the weekend of the 25th. If you’ve been feeling like taking a relationship to the next level, you could find you are ready to make a big step this month. The Mercury retrograde cycle impacts your work, health and productivity sector, so if you’ve been waiting to hear about an assignment or promotion, you might be waiting a bit longer. There are good indications towards the end of the month that signal stagnation for your life direction is clearing. You’ll seek some privacy from the limelight towards the end of the month and into the new year. A meditation practice or retreat can be beneficial.

VIRGO: Love and partnerships have likely been a source of all kinds of weird, complicated and beguiling scenarios this year, if not a source of outright frustration. The road gets easier this month and you can proceed with a relationship with a deeper sense of assurance and commitment, though the retrograde period of Mercury will likely see a few missed signals and maybe a reconsideration, Mars and later Venus coming to occupy the part of your chart associated with your other half signal fresh impulses are stirring in your love life. The 27th is time to release a worn out relationship script, I think they call that one beating a dead horse. (January 8th also features some strong clues of what you need to let go of.) Financials are in a state of great vitality, perhaps sudden expansion, and a work from home business can thrive in this phase.

LIBRA: It’s a real bang up of a month for Libra, so much energy is percolating in a creative enterprise or with a romantic relationship. The first few days of the month can seal the deal on an important commitment for either business or pleasure. There is more in store over the weekend of the 24th and you will doubtless be ringing in many happy returns, regardless of how catastrophic 2016 may have been for you at times. Uranus direct from the 29th signals a dry spell in a relationship is coming to an end. If you are not partnered, you will see exciting prospects emerge in February and through the Spring. From the 20th you enter a hard working phase. The assignments you deal with throughout January propel you to success this Summer, so do your best work. Mercury retrograde impacts your residence. If relocating, best to wait till February!

SCORPIO: The cutbacks and commitment you have demonstrated in trying to work out your tough financial issues are beginning to pay off, though probably in a scenario that is very private and behind the scenes. Your desire to self employment or the sense of liberation you seek from the workaday world is rekindled this month, and from New Years forward you see better influences here, particularly from February. Home is where the heart is for you right now, and you will likely be holding your key social and family events at your own place, possibly hosting those from out of town or having a nice, low key soiree. It’s been mostly a bitterly tough year for matters of the heart, and you’ve probably taken some time to lick your wounds. Feelings stir in your romantic sector from the 20th, a trend that takes you right through January. Release an old script on the 27th, and get in touch with someone you lost touch with.

SAGITTARIUS: It’s a boisterous and exciting month for you with very positive indications that your hard work and maturing outlook are really beginning to pay off. Events at the beginning of the month, as well as over the weekend of the 24th provide immense opportunities for making enduring and positive moves. Some of these have to do with a love relationship, and if you’ve been floundering you might find the inroads to make a commitment around the Full Moon on the 13th. Mercury retrograde impacts you money, honey, so get it in writing and don’t make yourself nuts waiting for the check to show up in the mail. It won’t. Or at least not until the end of January. The 10th and 12th are dynamic for you, you make a very positive impression. Bravo!

CAPRICORN: Very dynamic points in your chart are stimulated by the upcoming configurations and your base of operations, profession and private life all play a big role in the upcoming 10 months. It’s not impossible you need to relocate to take an offer or opportunity associated with you career, or that your work is going to keep you on the road a lot as you ascend the heights of your ambition. The work you are doing remains very much behind the scenes through next year. When Saturn moves into your sign next December you’ll enter a new high profile phase, reaping the rewards of the work you are doing now and no doubt an impeccable work ethic. You are learning to trust your inner voice more than your inner critic. Mercury in your sign for most of the next 8 weeks will likely make you busy-busy-busy. Finances are also key this month, with a proper pay off for your work in the early days of the month.

AQUARIUS: By far this will be the best month of the year for you, as Mars and Venus stimulate a very positive and productive ambience, and make harmonious combinations to Uranus and Jupiter throughout the month. An older friend may provide very good advice or support for your endeavors. Your’ ruling planet turning direct on the 29th will help you shake any doldrums. There is an infectiously playful element at work and the Full Moon on the 13th is absolutely delightful for self expression or a romantic relationship. Out and about is the best place to be! Mercury retrograde impacts your private life, and you can get some mixed signals from your subconscious. Dreams will be revealing, and can reveal what you need to say goodbye to. Mars from the 19th makes your finances a high priority. A source of income may come to an end on the 27th.

PISCES: You are back stage and getting ready for something really, really big Pisces, as Mars and then Venus come to occupy your slice of the sky. For now, you are working away behind the scenes and seeing some very exciting financial developments from what you have been cooking. A professional venture is highlighted and you may get capital to expand or develop your business, or be getting a raise for your hard work. This is an ongoing process that lasts through August, so you may just be in the initial phases this month, with more to be revealed up ahead. A limiting belief or behavior can effectively be released on the 27th, perhaps an enterprise or activity has run it’s course. You shine brightly on New Years Eve, bring on the bubbly and enjoy a romantic interlude. You are worth it.

Mercury goes into shadow on December 20th, on a conjunction to Pluto at 14 Cap. This will be one of the predominant themes of the upcoming retrograde cycle (January 6 – 26) and matters that enter negotiations now will experience modifications through January 31. Events and conversations today will signal the beginning of this process. Mercury with Pluto adds intensification to our thinking, and suggests much is going on in secret, perhaps even subversively. With Venus in Scorpio adding allure to that which is hidden and mysterious, this particular cycle is about depth and reaching far beyond the shallow artifices of the material realm.

Saturn in Scorpio brought a profound appraisal of intimacy and sexuality and taught us the value of the connections and the commitments we make with others. The message was not to take them lightly, nor take them for granted. With Saturn having moved on and this the first transit of Venus since, we are given the opportunity to build on these lessons and now cultivate a more passionate bond with our lover, spouse or mate. There is the potential of healing now through intimacy as well as the relationships through which we experience them. The transformational power of love is heightened and the experiences we have through sexual relationships brings us into a direct confrontation with the depths of our very being. A significant catharsis occurs now. Venus trine Neptune, Venus sextile Pluto and Jupiter as well as Venus trine Chiron (Dec. 20th- 17 Scorpio/Pisces) transits stimulate a very potent ambience for cultivating deeply meaningful romantic bonds.

Sagittarius Sun and Libra Mars continue to bestow a very optimistic and generous social ambience. The mood is upbeat and outgoing. The New Moon on the 11th portends a very beneficial but likely unanticipated event. Connections to Mars (sextile) and Uranus (in opposition) indicate an opportunity timing back to an innovative project we began around March 11th when Mars – Uranus conjoined at 14 Aries. There are some really stimulating and electrifying currents to be sure. Mars square Pluto earlier in the week suggests there are some obstacles to overcome, and even a confrontation with very obstinate and oppositional forces. We may find we have the courage or conviction to fight against the restrictions we have been living with and stand up for ourselves.

Sun (Dec. 19) and Mercury (Dec. 8) square to the Nodes signals a need to reorient ourselves to the evolutionary intent of North Node in Virgo. We got clues to these changes in March and September during the eclipses. Because we don’t know what the future looks like yet, we likely experience this more as a reminder of what we must release and let go of to get there. Although these transits can be some what painful, (letting go is always tough!) the awareness stimulated now is very useful, allowing us to check in with ourselves and see where we are headed. Intuition is strong during these transits and much can be learned from engaging the sensitivity we encounter.

Uranus goes direct on the 26th, bringing the forces of liberation back into the midst. For 12 days ONLY (Jupiter goes retrograde on January 8th,) ALL THE PLANETS are direct!
