Astro-forecast for December 2019
artworks by Gery Mews
In the yearly cycle around the zodiac we have reached the fiery and freedom-loving sign Sagittarius. Archers are the archetypal seekers who not only search for new adventures but also for meaning and truth. It is essential for their spiritual well-being to have a purposeful goal they feel enthusiastic about. It helps with focusing nervous energy, since Sagittarius is not the most patient sign! Translating the ‘far-away’ into the ‘here-and-now’ is one of the challenges that needs to be conquered.
On December 3, Jupiter shifts from idealistic Sagittarius to the more realistic sign Capricorn, where the largest planet of our Solar system will remain until December 20, 2020. Capricorn prefers stable structures and attempts to put down the law to control its environment. Jupiter energy, on the other hand, likes to expand , grow, take risks, and seeks to broaden its perception. Jupiter in Capricorn teaches practical optimism. Being prepared to work towards our luck instead of waiting for the lucky moment promotes learning from experience und using our accumulated knowledge to carefully build and improve life. In this sense, Jupiter in Capricorn supports new approaches in environmental issues and using available resources sustainably.
Jupiter was last time in Capricorn from late 2007 until 6 January 2009, the time when we had the Global Financial Crisis. The Capricorn energy will be magnified as Jupiter joins Saturn and Pluto, already in Capricorn for a number of years (Saturn: Dec, 2017 – Dec, 2020; Pluto 2008 -2024). Ethics, beliefs and standards around power and authority have to be examined. On the downside, we can expect more harsh regulations, authoritative rule making and laws that diminish our personal freedom. Accountability is another Capricorn theme, as are trade disputes and a slowing world economy. So, Jupiter in Capricorn can set an end to unrestrained growth and speculative hope for progress. Debt burdened corporations, governments, banks, and other economic institutions could fall apart over the next 12 months signifying the death of the old order, as we approach the dawn of an new era in 2020!
The Full Moon on December 12 in Gemini opposite the Sagittarius Sun squares Neptune in Pisces. Issues to do with water, its management and how we can improve looking after this so life-essential resource is on many people’s mind. Gathering all the necessary information, combining logic with vision, and translating abstract ideas into practical outcomes is the message of this Full Moon. Neptune in Pisces reminds us that the environment is where we all meet, where all have a mutual interest. It is the one thing all of us share. Let’s hope that the Full Moon in close proximity with Neptune in Pisces, the planet that rules the oceans and all waters, brings us some long anticipated rain!
The Solar Eclipse on December 26 on the 4th degree of Capricorn carries a powerful earthy signature. The eclipse is closely conjunct Jupiter who forms a constructive trine with Uranus in Taurus. It is a great moment in time for planting new seeds as things can suddenly move into new directions. During a solar eclipse, the Moon blocks out the light of the Sun, ‘the light of consciousness’. Thus we have to deal more deeply with subconscious as well as collective forces. The area in our personal chart, that is obscured by the eclipse might need some clearing of stagnant energies. Our material or physical existence could experience unexpected challenges. 19 years ago, the same part of our chart was activated, signalling definite endings and new beginnings. Wherever the eclipse passes, there is a heightened probability of natural disasters, particularly volcanic activities. This New Moon eclipse is visible from Saudi Arabia, Southern India, Borneo, Sumatra and the Philippines.
Aries: Career and public life are highlighted during this time. What direction do you like to follow? What is your special assignment for the world? Solidify your goals and build on your reputation. Create a new public image, reform unacceptable conditions and step into a position of true leadership!
Taurus: This is a great period for going on a vision quest, may it be internal or external. Envisage what you would like to achieve over the next 12 months. Where can you see yourself and what would be worthwhile to engage yourself full-heartedly? Your beliefs and efforts will be tested, so keep an open mind.
Gemini: Over the next 12 months you may attract benefits in the areas of joint finances and shared resources but also might succeed in your healing and personal transformation work. This is a time of diving into the depth of your soul and working through shadow areas. Reflect, clear, purge and free unlived potential.
Cancer: Over the next 12 months you may enjoy many benefits through your personal and business partnerships. Create favourable agreements and contracts while releasing old patterns of attachment and co-dependency. Hearing your partner’s point of view and empathising with what is going on in his/her world will enrich your own understanding, but it doesn’t need to pull you down!
Leo: Over the next 12 months new opportunities could arrive through the area of health and work. It is a wonderful period for healing, self-care and finding more enjoyment in your daily duties. Appreciating and taking care of ‘ the small things in life’ is the key. Take pride in whatever you do and commit to the task at hand.
Virgo: This is your time to be creative and remove self-doubts that are blocking your journey of self-exploration. You may feel inspired by playing with children, or vice versa: you might be an inspiration to them! Over the next 12 months creative projects that are close to your heart want your commitment. Just go for it!
Libra: You truly appreciate a harmonious, productive and well-functioning home which provides you with stability and satisfies your sense of beauty. However, you also know when the foundations are not quite right and need to be strengthened. This is an important time for completing unfinished projects, engaging in renovation work, or moving to a new place.
Scorpio: Over the next 12 months opportunities may arrive by expanding your networks with others. Express your ideas and you will find that through communication you can open new doors. Whatever you say will have an impact, so chose your words wisely. Keeping an open and flexible mind allows new information finding fertile ground.
Sagittarius: This is a great time for grounding any new growth and manifesting opportunities. You can look forward to a productive year if you are willing to limit your possibilities, prioritise, put in the necessary work, are disciplined in spending and have your attention set on the details.
Capricorn: The next 12 months are an excellent time for opening new doors and walking a new direction. Your personal influence has grown a lot and others may approach you for guidance. Nevertheless, watch your ambition and where it wants to take you. Be clear about your goals, you have the power to succeed. You might find yourself blocked, if you are on the wrong path.
Aquarius: You have arrived at a moment in time where it is important to look for guidance from deep within. Re-charge your batteries, it is your special phase of reflection, healing and rest. Over the next 12 month you can rid yourself of unhelpful behavior patterns while tuning in to your soul. Then you will be ready for a new beginning.
Pisces: You instinctively know that a lot of strength and power derives out of a gathering of like-minded souls. Over the next 12 months there will be many opportunities to expand and diversify your circle of friends. At the same token, some friends might leave your live because they do not share your vision any more as you evolve, change and transform.
