My friends, this is a WILD week, astrologically speaking. In addition to today's New Moon Eclipse, four planets are changing signs! This sequence is leading us to the Great Conjunction of Jupiter & Saturn on Solstice - Monday, December 21st. Pay attention to the intersection of endings and beginnings this week, as we prepare for take off.
ON 12/14: New Moon Eclipse in Sagittarius; Venus in Scorpio sextile Jupiter in Capricorn; Mercury in Sagittarius trine Mars in Aries
Jupiter is King today. Not only does the gas giant rule the sign of Sagittarius, and therefore the energetic frequency woven into the New Moon, but he is also getting ready for a new adventure in freedom loving Aquarius beginning this week.
Nestled into the 28th degree of Capricorn, the great expander is eager to exit a sign (and year) where options have been limited, to put it mildly. Given these circumstances Jupiter is not able to be as generous as he might like.
However there is a good luck charm being forged in the darkness of the eclipse - a silver lining sextile with Venus in Scorpio. What is the treasure that remains despite the restrictions of 2020? How will you carry this glimmer of hope forward? A hyperkinetic Mercury trining action loving Mars provides the heat to melt the lead - it's your job to alchemize it into gold.
TUES 12/15: Venus in Scorpio sextile Saturn in Capricorn; Venus enters Sagittarius; Chiron stations direct in Aries
Venus dances her final round with Saturn which helps to make yesterday's good luck charm viable. Her desire from this final degree of Scorpio - a love that lasts. Once the commitment has been negotiated, she'll leap into Sagittarius for the rest of the year adding some sweet & spice to matters of the heart. Chiron gets tired of lingering over past wrongs with today's direct station, encouraging you to move forward on your healing journey.
WED 12/16: Saturn enters Aquarius
Get ready for a new curriculum in cosmic mastery with Saturn's move into Aquarius. This part of your chart is about to become very important in 2021, although the Lord of Karma will be traveling here longer than that. You received your prep work for this transit earlier this year, March 21 - July 1 to be precise, when Saturn took an tour of the landscape. What stands out to you about that time period, in your life and the collective? These are the themes that you (and we) will be building over the next 2 1/2 years.
SAT 12/19: Jupiter enters Aquarius; Venus in Sagittarius trine Chiron in Aries; Sun/Mercury conjunction in Sagittarius
The Greater Benefic is finally free! Although still under Saturn's directive, Jupiter is MUCH HAPPIER in Aquarius than in Capricorn. Jupiter in Aquarius cycles can bring things like scientific & technological progress as well as a generalized feeling of "we can do better, and we will".
Catch the magic while you can; Jupiter will bounce out of Aquarius and into Pisces for a few months next year - a placement he likes even more since he is the traditional ruler of the sign. Things are certainly looking up for Jupiter and for you, too.
Meanwhile, Venus gives Chiron a boost in confidence to face the retrace of his recent retrograde in your Aries house. Today also hosts an important moment for the winged messenger when Mercury meets the Sun in Sagittarius for a "cazimi" moment. The superior conjunction can awaken dormant brilliance, so make space to listen for guidance while Mercury has the ear of the Sun King.
SUN 12/20: Mercury enters Capricorn
The mind shifts focus with the final planetary sign change of the week. While not as enthusiastic as Sagittarius, Mercury in Capricorn gives you the stamina to hold a thought, complete a sentence and carry out the instructions you received with yesterday's cazimi. Sobering to some, pragmatic to others, Mercury in Capricorn provides the mental fortitude to review and renew the topics of your Capricorn house.
Curious about how aspects like these might impact you personally? Want to receive guidance on how to work more consciously & effectively with the planets? There are still a few spots available in the first cohort of Cosmic Coaching. Doors close for Q1 on Sunday, Dec 20th and we begin January 1, 2021! All details HERE.
