Weekly Weather December 9, 2013
One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do in a stormy world is stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times…struggling souls catch light from others who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Cooperation, partnership and connection are the keywords for the next eight months of your life in all actions you take! We are moving from ME-ME-ME to WE-WE-WE! Time to sing in harmony. Time to make your own music or write your own song AND the key to your success is working with other people to get it done. To do it, you MUST, MUST, MUST work with others. To do virtually anything, you must be part of a shared vision or goal. Partner contributes their part of the project, their ideas, energy and suddenly the sum of the parts is greater than the whole! Whoosh you are done!
Action taking HAS to be done in partnership with others or the heavens won’t let it happen or be accomplished. Mars in Libra rules Saturn in Scorpio. Mars began an eight month journey last Saturday. You can figure out how to get what you want by talking to others! People will show up and volunteer to help you get where you are going. Accept all offers that seem to move you forward. Offer things to others where you can help them move forward.
On the other hand, IF you know you absolutely don’t want to do something or work with someone, NOW, RIGHT NOW, while Mars is in the early degrees before he gets to his shadow on December 26, put an end to the project(s) you are NOT interested in doing. Actually put an end to them before December 22 before Venus stations to go retrograde. Don’t take the meeting. Write the resignation letter. Let them know you can’t proceed as planned. Give them notice to clear your space for where you want to go.
Saturn, Mars and Venus are all in the same signs for three months… And, even better, the signs are in synchronicity and compatible with each other. The two personal planets of how we get things, Mars, and what we desire, Venus, are traveling in harmony with Saturn and each other. Mars and Venus will be able to swap places and energy with each other. When they swap energy, they enhance each other’s ability to articulate and activate their dreams. We are going to be formulating, building and focusing, with crystal clarity, on what we desire and want from our lives.
The only trick is we have to, absolutely have to, work with others. As we partner with our desires and other people, Saturn will be helping us to build it.
It is full steam ahead for the next two weeks. The universe is turning toward you and shouting “YES! Let’s work together!”
Even if you are the most curmudgeonly person alive, preferring days of solitude to ever having to work with anyone, even YOU will find the Universe inviting you to work forward towards your goals. Just say yes to offers that intrigue or entice you. Say yes!
When Venus goes retrograde in two weeks, there will be a slight shift in how you are going to finance, pay or procure it but the dream(s) remain intact ~ just the how to get it or pay for it or partner with it will shift.
They are NOT Complicated energies. After the turbulence of the last two months, the next passage is surprisingly easy and full of flow. Pay attention. The events of the last two weeks and this week set the stage for the next eleven months of your life.
The Week’s Planetary Highlights
Mercury is super busy this week moving close to 2 degrees a day! Flying through the heavens, he’s giving his opinion in a frank and direct manner, whether you want to hear it or not. In Sagittarius, Mercury goes off to play with Jupiter in a bit of a bacchanal. Lots of communications clarify the direction to take. Sometimes TOO much is happening! If overwhelmed with information or feedback, take a break and go for a walk.
Venus in Capricorn wants you to be SERIOUS about your money, finance, love and desire energies until March! Venus and Mars can shift places as they are in mutual reception making them both super powered to help you get what you want.
Mars in Libra is now all about WE-WE-WE not ME-ME-ME! For the next eight months, Mars is going to be paying attention to how well you partner and play with others. Playground rules ~ kindness, take your turn, wait patiently and no pushing or shoving! Sharing, mutual vision and ability to compromise are essential. Focus on how you can improve communications, relationships and connections with others. State your observations clearly and with a minimum of fuss. Mars rules Saturn so Saturn is all about committing to relationships in whatever house has the degrees 16 to 23 Scorpio.
Saturn is exalted while answering to Mars in Libra ~ so while things will be very intense and complicated emotionally, there will be a deep, profound and expressed desire state. Saturn is in his shadow. Whatever took place the past few weeks, since November 16, is what you are going to be working on and with until the end of October 2014. Make commitments and move forward. Focus on your vision of how to improve or partner (remember WE-WE-WE not ME-ME-ME until July 25!) Keep in mind, each and every commitment you make can and probably will be revised after March 2, 2014.
Jupiter and Saturn trine each other for the second time on Thursday Dec 12, 2013 at 18:27 Cancer. Revise and change the foundations of your dreams that you started working on last summer, particularly around July 17. The third and final trine will be May 24, 2014 at 18:59 Cancer when both Saturn and Jupiter harvest the work and life projects you began in May of 2000.
Quite a few health aspects this week! Build up your immune system! Going to be a wicked flu season! Lungs are taking it on the chin! Fluid buildup and mucus!
Uranus stations early next week so we start to feel it towards the end of this week ~ expect sudden reversals, outburst and shifts in direction ~ you (or they) want to run away and join the circus. Unhook from the chains that bind! Readdress the sticky and stuck places. Back up your electronic devices! Hang onto your cell phone while near water!
Void Moons in the Week Ahead: When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles. Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center. It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns. Kick back, let life flow and center yourself. Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.
Moon Day Monday December 9, 2013 Moon is in Pisces and goes void Sextile to Venus so today is very productive. Sun and Moon square each other early resulting in a potential conflict first thing in the morning. Later in the day Moon’s trine Jupiter and Saturn forms a Grand Water Trine~ inviting emotions and fluid to flow. Express yourself ~ and if you start to cry just keep talking! If you get a deep emotional gift or observation from someone, take it and pay attention to it. Mercury’s parallel to Pallas points out old or difficult patterns that are not so productive but very familiar. Trust the process and go forth. Health matters slide backwards a bit today! Take action and talk to your authorities directly ~ break throughs are possible. Eris is stirring the pot and retrieving old envious wounds that you thought you’d outgrown. If envy comes flying at you, acknowledge it and move along. No entertaining it! Mercury’s adjusting aspects to the Nodes of Fate and Karma allows you to see the world or your words in a different manner. Time to change how you’ve been guarding and protecting the old and familiar just because. Why are you doing it exactly? How much energy is going to preserve and maintain rather that letting go and going with the flow. Stand in your own light and let it shine. Mid-day you understand how to embrace that which you’ve been afraid to approach. Tonight there is a bit of a disagreement between what you want and what your authorities want. Find a compromise… where is WE-WE-WE?
The balance of the column will be up Monday.
