Angelic Astrology – December 2013
By Rev. Colleen Lemma
We are now in the last month of 2013! This year has certainly gone by quickly and has been filled with much transition and re-direction in our lives. We are nearing the end of a year and, interestingly enough, December is a 9 Universal Month within this 6 Universal Year. What is a 9 vibration all about? It is the closing of a chapter of energy…….the end of a cycle. It is about surrendering to the Universal Plan of the Divine and going with the flow of wherever the energies are attempting to take us. This means we must have trust and faith this month that we are being guided in the right direction. It is a time to pay special attention to your intuition and the messages from your angels and guides. This can truly be a magical month if we listen to our Higher Soul Self and stay centered and connected to our Light!
The energies have started to feel lighter already as the Sun moved into Sagittarius on November 21st and that theme will continue as there are a lot of positive planetary shifts and energetic happenings, especially in the first week of December.
The month starts off with the Sun in Sagittarius in a positive trine aspect to Uranus, the Great Awakener! This aspect was actually exact on November 30th but we still feel it as an uplifting, electrical energy that gives us a feeling that anything is possible! This energy could have actually ushered in some unexpected good news, positive message or beneficial circumstance into our lives. We do have the Sun squaring Chiron, the Wounded Healer, on December 1st as well, so we may be feeling or dealing with an old karmic wound involving our individuality or sense of Self, but I feel this will be short-lived as there is so much positive energy that presents itself in the next few days.
On December 2nd we have a New Moon at 11 degrees Sagittarius. The sign of Sagittarius expands our perceptions and opportunities and makes us feel like we can accomplish anything. It is a very optimistic energy so do some meditation and set your intentions. “Shoot for the Moon” as they say, and think BIG as this energy likes to do things in a very BIG way! Sagittarius rules education, publishing, our belief systems, foreign cultures and long distance travel, along with expansion, optimism and good fortune so setting goals or progressing forward in any of these areas would be extremely beneficial for you at this time.
Mercury moves out of Scorpio and joins the Sun in the sign of Sagittarius on December 4th so our thinking and communication, both internally and externally, becomes much more positive. Remember last month with all the planets we had in Scorpio? It was very reflective, serious, and deep as it brought shadow issues out into the open to be looked at and dealt with. Now we have the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius and the world and our outlook is much brighter!
On December 7th we have another planet changing signs. This time we have Mars moving from Virgo into the sign of Libra. When it was in Virgo it was putting its energy into work and service, as well as health concerns. Now Mars, which rules our physical energy, courage and passion is moving into the sign that rules relationships. And it is going to be in the sign of Libra for longer than normal. Usually, Mars is in a sign for approximately 5 weeks but it is going to go retrograde in the sign of Libra and, therefore, spend a lot more time here. It will be traveling through Libra for about 30 weeks! Yes, you heard right……..Mars will be in the sign of Libra until almost the end of July 2014. It will actually go into its “shadow period” period on December 26th 2013 but will not officially go retrograde until the 1st of March 2014. We will talk more about Mars retrograde in upcoming Angelic Astrology articles but suffice it to say that we will be paying a lot of attention to partnership matters during this time.
One planet that will be going retrograde this month is Venus, the planet that rules relationships, values and our money and finances. It has been in its shadow period since November 19th and turns to retrograde motion on December 21st, which is the same day the Sun moves into Capricorn (which is Winter Solstice here in the U.S.) It will be retrograde the whole month of January before turning back to direct motion on January 31st. So here we are with Venus that also focuses on relationship matters. The sign Capricorn, where Venus retrogrades, is about commitment and building structure so here we are reviewing and contemplating our relationships and whether to take them to the next level……whether to make them more solid and secure. Venus also, however, rules our finances and personal resources so there is an added focus on money matters and financial security as we attempt to figure out how we can bring more of this into our everyday lives.
We must back up a moment as we have a Full Moon at 25 degrees Gemini on December 17th right before Venus goes retrograde. Communications in our relationships will be highlighted and new ideas and networking within our career will bring a fresh perspective as we approach this lunation. After the full moon is exact it will be a time to release and let go of old mental constructs and thought processes that no longer serve our best and highest interest.
The first half of the month we have Jupiter in Cancer in a positive trine aspect to Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn in Scorpio has been assisting us with bringing up energies within us (and on the planet) that have been hidden that need to be exposed so they can be healed and released. With Jupiter, the Great Benefic, in a positive aspect it will support us with this exposing and healing process. These two planets in this relationship will aid us in securing in the Divine Feminine Energies within us as we move forward in our evolution and growth as a soul.
On December 24th, Mercury moves from Sagittarius into the sign of Capricorn. Our mindset, thinking patterns and communication aspects shift once again and become more grounded and serious. This is going to complement the fact that Venus is retrograde in the same sign. We are paying more attention to our goals, ambitions and situations and circumstances of a practical nature. We will be making decisions regarding our Destiny Path, career and relationships based on our long term view of where we believe we are going in life and what we desire to materialize.
The last week of December there are many planetary aspects occurring between different planets that should make for quite an interesting time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Be prepared this last week of the year for unexpected developments and communications between people, emotional confusion and perhaps some stressful situations and events. These energies may push us outside of our comfort zones but it will be an energetic push from the Universe as well, as we are re-directed (as we often are near the end of the year) for new developments and a new direction to be introduced for the New Year of 2014.
When I asked the Angels and my guides for any messages that they wished to share for this month, this is what they said.
There is much beneficial and magical energies available this month! Use visualization and positive thinking to attract the circumstances and situations that you desire into your life. Happiness and joy raises your vibration and, as such, can bring much success into any area of life that you choose! You have the ability to create your reality!
Education of all kinds are highlighted! Classes, lectures, online or book reading………….any form of learning is extremely helpful as you move forward this month. This is also about spiritual learning………….the learning that your soul experiences with the Universal shifts of energy that are taking place on the planet at this time. Open your mind and allow the inflow of information!
Shield and protect yourself from lower vibrational energies, negative thinking and negative people and situations. Keep yourself surrounded by those energies that are happy, joyful and uplifting as this will assist you in creating the most optimal circumstances that you desire in your life! Use your passion, courage and desire to move forward confidently on your Path!
Many Blessings to You!
Light to All,
