Here we are with the fiery adventurous Sagittarian energy well under way.
On December the 3rd the month kicks off with Mercury, the planet of communication, back tracking through the fire sign of Sagittarius. Some gasp at this transit seeing a retrograde as a negative aspect as communication and all things electrical slow down or appear to fail in some way. Of course this is not the case. This aspect reminds us to take stock and go over things we may have rushed or not dealt with efficiently. It’s not the time to buy new electrical items, sign contracts or book travel.
Many things continue to run as normal it might just be the odd travel plan goes to pot or the pc plays up. We live in a fast paced world and the transit reminds us that life sometimes goes at a different pace to what we want or expect. Sagittarius is naturally a spontaneous communicator and can be blunt so Mercury back tracking hopefully aids any outbursts and lets us think before we open our mouths.
Also on this day we have a full Moon in the air sign of Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury so this sign may feel the slowing down of the transit and be more sensitive than usual as the moon governs our emotional body. Not to worry! That’s not so easy to say to this natural worrier. Simply tune into the moment, the yin of the Moon and embrace slowing down. You might find that any plans made under the new Moon in the opposite sign of Sagittarius yield at this time.
On the 9th Mars moves into Scorpio. In old astrology terms this assertive fire planet rules Scorpio - think steam rather than fire as the water and fire mix their energies. You may be inclined to keep plans to yourself and work privately behind the scenes. Mars rules our assertiveness and sex drive and this placement is a passion to behold.
Saturn enters Capricorn on the 19th and is the ruler of this earth sign. Saturn has a slow transit and is known as the task master. Work,achievements and maturity are a few words links to this planet. The past only reaches the future through change not necessarily doing the familiar over and over. The feeling here can also be one of seriousness, frustrations and many things being slow. On the positive side make this period a time to plan work, approach what maybe hard work and strip back what no longer serves you. A time to face reality, gain inner strength and live your truth.
The new moon in Sagittarius on the 18th is the time to get your ideas under way and plan. Especially travel plans for after the mercury retrograde as this sign likes adventure, to learn, grow on all levels of being and socialise. Do you want to learn something new? Are you ready for spiritual growth? So you need to get out more. Whatever it is you can make it happen.
Wishing you all a wonderful month and Yuletide
