The sun ripens to a deep autumn red in mysterious Scorpio, 27 degrees of the sign of the Eagle, Snake, or Phoenix. We slowly sink toward solar renewal!! Winter at this stage sees the stars bright as jewels and the skies cloudless and clear as can be! What poignant beauty!
The moon bobs along in Aquarius, pointing out all that is hidden, unnoticed, secreted. We are wise to take maximum advantage and use our eyes today!
Our small joints, like the ankles, are at risk now, and we must be alert to protect them.
Just 10 days till Christmas Eve!!! The day itself falling on a Tuesday does seem like a lucky break for making a short week!!!
We won't want to come back from dreamland this morning... so peaceful, so sweetly colored, so softly outlined are our visions. This time of year is ripe with the most charming of charms! By 8 35 AM Pacific, 11 35 AM eastern, we have come back to the waking world with both feet on the ground.
And it's a good thing as this is a busy, productive day when we accomplish miracles! By 6 19 PM Pacific, 9 19 PM eastern time, we have done a weeks work in a day, and still have energy to spare.
Late tonight, 9 05 PM Pacific, we sense the winds of change rising around us.
Those of us who rise for midnight prayer on the east coast will feel the shift of the axis.
This weekend is the next to last before Christmas; be of good cheer, and get the plan in place!!
It's almost Christmas!
The awesome beauty that is winter shines in the darkness!
Talk about the blues!
Mercury, our orb of communication, is full steam ahead in slinky, snoopy Scorpio, making us naturally suspicious of everything and inclined toward doubt. Now is our time for critical thinking, especially about the Mysteries! It will bring us so much closer to them, and to understanding our nature, our soul.
This time will open our eyes to what we have right in front of us, but been missing.
That phantom moon which science swears could not exist but which astronomers have seen on many occasions, Vulcan, inculcates real wisdom now as it passes on the dark side of the sun.
The Pause that counts!
The golden girl of the cosmos, Venus, sits in her autumn home, Libra, all gold and grace and great dinner parties, in a state of reconsideration. Our tastes have never been more genteel or elegant, but we find ourselves wanting to improve, to focus, to increase what is good and recycle what is not. What a gift of time!
Now is a great time to keep steady on our appearance, our funds, our current possessions. We may be tempted to splurge on the dramatic and new and original, but we may find we will hate it next month.
This is a splendid window to research the history of social grace, etiquette, civil exchange!!
Spending time with our current friends, pals, loves and pets will increase our joy!
is a little uneasy! Our ideas have a definite martial tinge as Mars cruises Aquarius. We wisely put our minds to conquering the most complex and cerebral of tasks now for best results.
begins with clearning out the old scandals and dross. The king of planets, Jupiter is upending secrets and outting lies. The smell will reach high heaven!!
Back in the Saddle Again!
Saturn rides through sidereal Sagittarius, pointing us in the right direction when it comes to the law, the Law, travel, school, scheduling, or journeys near or far having to do with our religious views.
At his best, Saturn can steady all the wild sky horses with sober calm, turning their tricks into reigns to guide our own inner drives with a more mature hand.
Saturn is all about form, walls, and watching. We will discover this in 2018!
All the fuss is about just that, fuss.
Uranus, the cosmic hand grenade, blasts through Aries, the sign of All or Nothing At All. Our sudden impulses and tracks seem so intense!! As spring launches itself upon us, he will explode through the Spring Lamb like a soccer match on steroids. Sports, military maneuvers, policing issues and leadership opportunities seem to materialize out of the air, and demand immediate action. Let's be ready to think on our feet, Star Travelers! This can be a fun time full of exploration, innovation, experimentation.
Fussy and fuzzy too!
Our faculties of Inspiration are under the bluegreen mists of Neptune, the orb of idealismand music, as it buoys through Aquarius, the sign of ideas, brotherhood, idealism, and innovation. This inspires delightful forms and colors for a future that is more out of this world than of it.
Currently retrograde till November 24th, we find our minds crystal clear, our reasoningability a bit cold. A perfect window for studying without passion or prejudice, the most confusing and complicated of issues.
Pluto, the fateful, fitful energy orb which can open our eyes to what is really there in front of us cruises in the sign of true blue Sagittarius. Our core beliefs about religion, the law, The Law, education, and foreign affairs will be challenged, turned upside down and inside out, and we are wise to move through slowly to examine our own innards to see what is really going on there. Sagittarius is the great Truth Seeker. Let's not disappoint Him! With courage, dignity, and grace, we can refine and now redefine who and what we are, in our inner reality. As Pluto next visits the sign of government, dads everywhere, the corporate culture, we can emerge much more sure of ourselves and our beliefs and principles by engaging with Fate now!
Pluto will engage with the sun and with Venus on the 9 th of January 2018 in a powerful embrace which is bound to change feelings, values, and core beliefs, bringing to the surface all that is rotten and obstructive to be lanced, cleansed, purified, and healed. This may be a painful process but not likely violent, especially if we do not fight it, but go with the tides of heaven.
The planette which keeps watch on the home fires, Vesta, in Capricorn, highlights home and family, as well as tradition.
Our spousal planette Juno backtracks through Aries. Even when she is in full reverse she leaps to the fore!
can be fixed if we want to take the time to go back and work on our inner emotional issues. With the planette Chiron, our Wounded Healer, retrograde in Pisces now, real success is possible when using color, theater, drama, or past life therapy.
Our social interchange
Pallas, the planettary BFF and sister in arms, sits in the sign of the celestial Gardner, Virgo, where she rules.
The planette Ceres, the cook of the solar system, bakes wonders in Libra!! A perfect place for successful entertaining.
This marks the twelfth complete lunation for this year.
