HOROSCOPE FOR DECEMBER 2017 by JANET AMID
HOLIDAYS ARE FINALLY HERE!
Mantra for the month – Pay it Forward.
The Holiday season, and the magic of Christmas is symbolized as the Winter Solstice begins on December 22, and the Sun commences in the earthy, Saturn ruled sign of Capricorn. This period marks both an ending as well as a beginning as we welcome 2018.
Astrologically speaking,…..For many of us, this may be just what the cosmos ordered as we may begin to pay better attention to details, focusing more on health care whether our own or the well being of others.
*Spotlight is on Sagittarius ( Nov 23-DEC 21)- Your mental perception is much clearer this month as you find yourself focusing on where it is you truly want to be. A very strong as well as conducive time for love connections as your own sign balances with expansive Jupiter. However, remember the golden rule, quality versus quantity.
VENUS, THE PLANET OF PLEASURE AND PLAY, IN SAGITTARIUS UNTIL DEC 24
When Venus was in Scorpio, this past November, its influence created intensity, deep waters as well as emotions.. Whereas Venus now in fiery Sagittarius, creates a blaze. As it continues in Sagittarius we feel a need to freedom-seek, to run free and experience everything the world has to offer (and more) preferably with other free spirits. Venus in Sagittarius is setting off on the road less traveled, broadening horizons through travel and philosophy and ideas and cultures.d. Venus in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius brings to light a need to expand beyond your dreams., to lighten the load so to speak. You begin to question, are you happy? If not, then what are you going to do about it? Possibilities open up when Venus moves into Sagittarius, we are more enthusiastic, more exploratory, discovery of self, along with the power to be anything you want to be. Those born under, Sagittarius, Leo, Aquarius, Aries, Scorpio, Libra, Capricorn, are in a good place. Much depends on where it falls into your zodiac picture based on your time of birth
FULL MOON IN GEMINI DECEMBER 3, 2017
The Full Moon in Gemini creates an intense vortex of mental “emotion” as you seek to bend and stretch your intelligence so as to hold two (or more) approaches to the issue you confront.
Are you experiencing breakthroughs in perception that at times are unnerving and other times inspiring? This is a Mercurial Full Moon once again inviting mental flexibility — the psychic space to change your mind. This particular Full Moon can be flexible providing you with that extra emotional and mental edge. As it opposes the transiting Sun and Venus, we may see ourselves feeling pulled, as well as indecisive. Taking a step back and regrouping before jumping in to unsteady waters keeps us level.
DEC 18, NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS – AS THE NEW MOON PLANTS ITS SEED – THE COSMOS IS WAITING TO TEND TO IT. SET YOUR GOALS – HAVE A VISION.
The New Moon begins a new cycle of growth and renewal as it prepares us for 2018. Set your intentions, manifest your goals and ambitions. This is one of those times when Astrology comes in like a force breathing life into anything it touches. It allows us to communicate effectively, allowing us to delegate and plan for the holidays
We can now leave the painful parts of the past behind as we enlarge our visions of life. Even the most difficult challenges diminish when we expand the pool of hope and the field of possibilities. Fresh aspirations can arise that may seem beyond our reach at the moment, but which can provide inspiration whether we fulfill them or not.
Mercury, the planet of chat, in Sagittarius until Dec 22 – Just in time for the holidays, Mercury in Sagittarius is all about optimism, and forward thinking.
Saturn in Capricorn starting December 20, 2017.- until 2020 – Last occurrence was from 1988-1991.
What do you want to be when you “grow up” and are you even ready to take on such a momentous role? Every 27 to 30.years (approximately), you’ll get the nudge you need to advance into a new stage of adulthood. In astrology, we call it the Saturn Return. Many of you have heard me mention it on the radio.There’s a very obvious reason for this name: Saturn takes approximately 27 to 30 years to complete one full orbit around the Sun and literally return to the same zodiac sign it was in when you were born.
The first Saturn Return, which can happen between ages 27 and 30,
In astrological lore, Saturn is the great taskmaster of the skies, the teacher. We prefer the term life coach or personal trainer actually, since Saturn is “cruel” to be kind. It breaks you down, makes you lift the heavy weights so you can build those rock-hard muscles and get into fighting shape! Wherever Saturn is in your chart will point to your toughest lessons, but the ones you might become obsessed with breaking through. The time of your birth will signify where Saturn falls into your birth chart.
Now entering its ruling sign, the more structured, stable sign of Capricorn. we will see a HUGE shift hopefully for the better in our political arena. Schools and other institutions will take on a more advanced structured. It’s all about change for the better, becoming more conservative as well as involved.
