December Edition Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“I was dead, then alive. Weeping, then laughing…Then new events said to me, ‘Don’t move. A sublime generosity is coming towards you.’” Rumi
Onwards and upwards, my friends! The astro theme this month is: Innovation! With planetary lovers Venus and Mars tap dancing through the inspirational and visionary sign of Aquarius, this is a time to expand our ways of thinking, into a bigger, more universal perspective. Aquarius can be a bit of a wild card—think of the joker, or The Fool card of the Tarot. All bets are off, and anything can happen! The more you are open to change, the greater the opportunity.
Speaking of wild cards, Mercury Retrograde (Dec 19th through Jan 8th) joins Pluto and the New Moon in the sign of Capricorn, throwing a cosmic wrench into everything we know to be true. Again, to use the archetypes of the Tarot, it has a Tower Card feel, the destruction/clearing away of old structures that don’t serve us. Death and rebirth, and ultimately, with time: From the ashes the phoenix will rise.
Another major planetary player this month is expansive Jupiter (in Libra) coming into direct square (conflict) with Pluto. This astro combo portends an unearthing of old emotional and behavioral patterns that need to be transformed, to be brought out of the dark into the healing energy of light. And of course, there’s the Winter Solstice December 21, a magical, contemplative time—a night of spiritual reconnection and ritual. A time to celebrate renewal, rebirth and gratitude for the year. Which all in all is The Star card: To embrace the always potential of light, no matter how dark the day.
Your December Horoscope:

Taurus: There’s no place like home…Your house of home and family is highlighted this month, Taurus. On a mundane level this applies to your actual family and place of living.

Grab Toto, tap your ruby slippers three times and envision your life over the rainbow. Because, you’re #NotInKansasAnymore
Gemini: All about the Moon…The Full Moon in your sign, combined with the intense New Moon/Pluto/Mercury Retrograde illuminating your house of transformation, compels you to dig beneath the surface of: “Who-You-Are”.

Whether there’s rapids involved or just an enjoyable moment drifting away, it’s all good. #TheIncredibleLightnessOfBeing

Capricorn: Big month, Capricorn! No pressure…but your stars are prompting you to grab ahold of the-real-essential-you. That’s a mouthful, and may have you shaking your head—Real? Essential? Me?

Aquarius: Venus and Mars orbiting your sign, open stellar portals to your most innovative self. This is a powerful time to stretch your imagination into new possibilities.

If you are feeling in doubt, take a moment to breath into the essential genius that is you. #TheForceIsWithYou
