Tuesday December 10, 2019

We seem to be riding a welcome wave of confidence today. There is articulate and skillful communication on display that seems to help us clarify our intentions. However, 'people skills' can only take us so far. Eggheads coming down from 'Ivory Towers' may seem to know exactly what to say to stir our minds and produce grand schemes and inspire us. However, such skills have sometimes only been used to manipulate and distract the 'masses' Impulsive action is particularly destructive today and we should not be fooled into believing everything we hear. With steady effort and a firm grip on what needs to be done, today's optimism can be helpful. However, today's Venus-Saturn conjunction has the potential to encourage us to make commitments without fully understanding the 'price tag'



Weekly Summary

DECEMBER 8 - DECEMBER 14

"The right to express our thoughts, however, means something only if we are able to have thoughts of our own; freedom from external authority is a lasting gain only if the inner psychological conditions are such that we are able to establish our own individuality."
— Erich Fromm, Escape from Freedom

Venus runs something of a gauntlet this week, conjuncting both Saturn and Pluto, shedding 'light' on next month's soon-to-complete (and widely discussed) Saturn-Pluto conjunction. In many respects, Venus is no match for these two larger bodies and represents us as individuals within a much larger context of major societal shifts, changes, and demands. Two other 'personal' planets, Mercury and Mars, are also wrapped up with larger planets and societal shifts this week: Mercury arrives in Sagittarius and makes a stirring quincunx to Uranus, while Mars makes an inspiring trine to Neptune. A log jam of creativity and inspiration begins to break loose but we will need to be especially aware that inspiration, luck and optimism will only carry us so far. Groundwork and proper planning are required in order to keep us from veering off course. The undercurrent of this atmosphere is the strong Capricorn stellium which seems to demand responsibility and conformity. In fact, what is truly demanded is balance and awareness. The creative inspiration may be lacking in detail, while the concerns over conformity may only apply to conforming to an establishment that is breaking down, shifting and changing before our very eyes. It is within this larger context that Chiron turns direct in individualistic, pioneering Aries. Chiron begins to whisper that we must somehow bridge the gap between our individual, inspired insights, and the overpowering demands of our society and culture, somehow maintaining our balance without giving up on our individuality. Wednesday evening's Full Moon (9:12 PM 19° Gemini/Sagittarius) is quincunx both Mars and the forming Saturn-Pluto conjunction and demands our full attention. The Full Moon's intensity may seem quite sudden and surprising, due to the Mars-Neptune trine which has us focused on chasing rainbows and grand ideas. Ultimately, the danger here is either acting prematurely, without laying the proper groundwork (chasing rainbows) or, alternatively, giving up on our individual inspiration in an effort to conform (throwing the baby out with the bathwater).

There are tender shoots of optimism emerging on Sunday. Brainstorming creative new ideas is supported but be careful of going off the cliff 'chasing rainbows'. Optimism is more tangible on Monday as we begin to recognize patterns that have been staring us in the face for a while. Optimism creates a wave of confidence on Tuesday. Communication is inspiring but we should be cautious about acting impulsively or prematurely and should not believe everything we hear — details are likely lacking. Wednesday's roller coaster brings highs and lows and is capped off by the evening's Full Moon. The wealth of information is likely to be overwhelming. The Moon goes VOC after the Full Moon and doesn't arrive in Cancer until mid-afternoon on Thursday (3:02 PM PST). We're more likely to wallow in vacillation than to have a firm grip on what's next. The Moon forms an inspiring Grand Water Trine on Friday, suggesting an outpouring of emotion and creative inspiration. Another VOC Moon on Saturday could produce an inclination to impulsive or premature action. Some may believe conformity is safer than acting out of turn. However, neither approach is likely to be satisfying.

Wednesday December 11, 2019

Tonight's Gemini Full Moon (9:12 PM 19° Gemini/Sagittarius) is powerful but may seem to come out of nowhere somehow. The Moon's quincunx to Mars and square to Neptune, just before Full Moon, may have us confused and chasing rainbows. Once we arrive at the Full Moon this evening, the Moon's quincunx to Venus and Saturn in Capricorn draws us back to Earth with a thud. Ultimately, we ride a bit of a roller-coaster today, as we seek details to confirm our 'pipe dreams' — with little success. It isn't especially easy to think long term in this atmosphere, despite the stellium in Capricorn, but that is where we need to put our focus going forward. Look for the off ramp to quiet meditation as we move through this wind-tunnel of ideas. Information will serve us well, although it may not seem possible to nail down the details here.

Thursday December 12, 2019

The Moon is VOC until 3:02 PM PST. Vacillation is produced by the strong desire to break free of restriction even as we feel a concern to maintain the proper presentation, image and appearance. Chiron stations direct today and will begin to instill a strong sense of adventure and a pioneering spirit that looks for ways to tame the whirl of ideas while seeking to avoid giving up on the sense of excitement. The strong Capricorn influence brings a demand for hard work and responsibility which is a powerful undercurrent beneath the flow of new and exciting ideas and insights that are keeping us stirred up. Finding a proper balance between responsible effort and inspiration is the grand challenge we are facing here.
