Angelic Astrology – December 2017
Well, here we are in the last month of this Universal 1 Year of new beginnings! It was a long, slow, and sometimes challenging, birthing process that we went through as we all prepared ourselves for a new direction, in the collective sense, and perhaps personally. We may still be in that process of redirecting. We are moving ever closer to a new Universal Year energy for 2018, and therefore, a shift in focus as we continue on the Path. But, let us not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s look at what this last month of the year has in store for us, starting with the numerology vibration.
December is a 22/4 Universal Month Energy. The lower vibration of the 4 suggests that we will be more focused and grounded….paying attention to details and working towards certain goals. We may be paying more attention to work, financial matters, organization, and prioritizing what we need to finish up in this cycle before moving into 2018. The 4 sometimes feels constricting, limiting, or challenging, often dealing with earthly challenges of stability and security.
The number 22 is a Master Number and is about building a solid foundation for the future….it is about determination, perseverance, and putting forth the effort needed to create and manifest security in our lives. It is about balancing home life and work life, feminine and masculine, inner life and outer life. The number 22 is considered the “Master Builder” and can signify the principle of what you focus on, you create…..what you visualize, will come into form….there are practical steps to be taken and action required but through patiently working towards your goals, you can manifest your dreams.
Normally we look at the connection to the tarot for more clues as to what the energy of the month will bring. November was a 21 Universal Month. The 21st Major Arcana is “The World” and the last of the major arcana of the tarot which signified that we were at the end of a cycle of energy last month. There is no 22nd Major Arcana, and therefore, we would normally look at the reduced number of the 4 (2+2=4). However, in many studies of the tarot, Major Arcana 0, which is “The Fool” is often seen as key 22 of the Major Arcana as we start over in the soul’s journey once again. Think about the symbology….in the World Card, the last major arcana, we are closing out a cycle of energy. It is the completion of the soul’s journey, and the soul will, once again, start out with a new beginning. Major Arcana 0, The Fool, is that new beginning. It is where the soul takes a leap of faith to start out on a new path. We step into the void of faith and trust that we will be led in the right direction. This is what the month of December, the last month of this Universal 1 cycle of new beginnings, holds for us.
The first astrological energy of significance occurs on December 1st with Venus, ruler of love, relationships, values, and money, moving into the sign of Sagittarius, where she will be until December 25th. In this sign beautiful Venus is more freedom-oriented in partnerships and more risk-taking with finances. There is more of a lack of commitment and carefree attitude about her as she moves through this mutable fire sign of the Archer. Also, we have Mars, planet of energy and action, opposing Uranus, planet of rebellion and change. This heightens the freedom energies even more as Uranus rules breaking away from convention and situations that restrict us.
The next day on December 2nd, Jupiter, planet of expansion, is connecting with Neptune, ruler of illusion, confusion, things intangible and energies unseen. Jupiter, having recently moved into Scorpio, has been exposing and expanding situations and our belief systems about power, control, sexuality, and energies that have been hidden. With his connection to Neptune, there may be some confusing stories that unfold surrounding the victims of those that have abused their authority, and the sex scandals that have been exposed to the masses.
We have a Full Moon at 11 degrees Gemini on December 3rd.This Full Moon is challenging Neptune at 11 degrees Pisces and creating a semi-sextile to Jupiter at 11 degrees Scorpio. Again, there may be some interesting information of “he said, she said” that comes out into the open. There may be some confusion as to what to believe or if we are experiencing exaggerations or disinformation from others. Also on the same day, Mercury, planet of the mental realm, turns to retrograde motion at the last degree of Sagittarius and will be retrograde until December 22nd, adding to the confusion in the news, information, and communication. It may be better to wait to have important meetings or conversations with people until after the Full Moon energies, or until Mercury turns back to direct motion if at all possible.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer, turns back to direct motion on December 5th. We have felt this building in intensity during the month of November as old karmic wounds, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, have bubbled to the surface to be healed and transmuted. These wounds are from this, and previous lifetimes and the healing process has been part of our evolution and growth as we no longer need to carry these wounds as we move forward on our Path.
On December 9th Mars, the Warrior will move into the sign of Scorpio where he will remain until January 26th, 2018. Mars is a planet that rules assertiveness and drive, as well as energy and action. Scorpio is a sign that is intense, passionate, and about power and control. Mars at his best here will be focused on where he wants to go and what he wants to accomplish and will stick to it until he reaches his goals. At his worst, he will be overpowering, controlling, vindictive, and perhaps abusive. Let us all channel this energy in the more empowering and positive way to move towards the next steps of what we desire to accomplish.
We have a New Moon at 26 degrees Sagittarius on December 17th and 18th depending on where in the world you live. This lunation is conjunct Venus at 21 degrees Sagittarius, Saturn at 29 degrees Sagittarius, and trine Uranus which is stationing at 24 degrees Aries, which is intensifying his rebel energies. Of course, New Moons are about new beginnings and this one has great, positive potential with Venus being here. Saturn in the mix may be bringing up karmic energies of judgment and a need to look at circumstances from a different perspective, while the connection to Uranus is bringing in sudden changes and redirections to our path forward. But, all in all, it seems to be a positive energy that will move us in a positive direction.
The next day, on December 19th, Saturn, the Task Master, is moving into his home sign of Capricorn. Here he will stay until December 2020, and focus his energies on responsibilities, career, recognition, and climbing the ladder to success. Saturn and Capricorn both relate well to rules and regulations, as well as the patriarchal system. It will be interesting to see how this energy unfolds as we move through the next 2 ½ years. On December 21st the Sun will move into this sign of the mountain goat, and Venus follows on December 25th, adding a more grounded, practical energy to round out the year.
The last astrological energy that we will discuss is the North and South Node Destiny Points which approach the 15th degree of Leo and Aquarius, respectively. This is important because, as you may recall, we had a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse back on August 8th at 15 degrees of Leo. Full Moons are about endings and releasing the old, and with the North Node connecting to 15 degrees of Leo, and the South Node opposing this degree at 15 degrees of Aquarius, it is setting off the eclipse energy. The Nodes will cross this degree on December 30th and 31st. This is going to be a turning point of endings and new beginnings, right at the end of the year, as we prepare to move into a new year and a new year’s energy.
