The month of December brings a solar eclipse, two planets changing signs, and an important square. There are quite a few opportunities for you during the month if you’re willing to step a little outside your comfort zone. There are also choices to be made related to the North Node and the South Node, and occasionally taking a step back will help you move forward.
On November 30, there was a lunar eclipse at 8° of Gemini bringing lessons about communication. This eclipse brings frustration about being misunderstood. You may find it difficult to get your point across. There’s the challenge that other people may not think the way you do, nor do they always express themselves well. Eclipses bring change, and so you may be changing how you communicate with the special people in your life.
On December 14, a solar eclipse at 23° of Sagittarius brought lessons about beliefs and personal rules. The solar eclipse sheds some light on how your personal code guides your daily actions and whether that set of rules is really benefiting you. You can start by looking at your overarching belief in the Universe. Do you feel supported, cared for, and protected? If you feel the Universe is watching out for you, your brain will find examples everywhere to confirm this. Success follows quickly.
On December 16, Saturn enters Aquarius, and on December 19, Jupiter enters Aquarius. These two major planets change signs within a few days of each other, bringing some brand-new energy. The previous sign, Capricorn, represents a traditional and conservative way of doing things. The new energy of Aquarius talks about new, innovative, technology-minded, big ideas. As these new energies unfold, it’s good to learn how to do things related to technology and join with groups that want to make the world a better place.
On December 23, Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, bringing a great deal of focused energy to help you get things done. This is a good day to work on challenging projects such as figuring out 401(k) allocations, outlining your dissertation, or building a shopping cart for your website. If a person is not feeling challenged today, there can be anger or frustration. Stay clear bored people.
