This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Libra Moon. It’s time to run out and get our Advent calendars because the 12 Days of Christmas started on Tuesday, Dec. 12. The song that we sing to honor this period of time starts with a partridge in a pear tree and ends with twelve drummers drumming.
With the Holy Days upon us, keeping an eye on the planets may seem like a secondary issue, but it’s not. Between the recent ingress of Mars into Scorpio, and Saturn’s entrance into Capricorn later this month, we’ve got a lot to consider.
For starters, both planets will be ensconced in the signs that they rule. This suggests that the Martian element, which can be like a bull in a china shop, will have an easier time taking the high road. Our motives and actions will draw their power from a spiritual place, and be less inclined to fly off the handle for selfish or egotistical reasons.
With Saturn’s presence in Capricorn, there are bound to be changes when it comes to the Powers That Be. There will also be sweeping changes to the system at large. In any other sign, Saturn can be stubborn, intractable, and geared toward worn out approaches to problems that warrant more awareness and high levels of integrity. When he’s in Capricorn, Saturn holds himself to a higher standard and is able to make difficult choices with the best interests of all held in mind.
What I see coming down is a raft of sweeping change that is ready to hit us at both the personal and collective levels. Anything that is out of integrity, anything that has been camouflaged under the cloak of darkness and deceit, anything that involves misrepresentation and falsehood, along with every last bit of hypocrisy, these things are about to get kicked to the curb. Why? Because it’s time – and because the energies that are filling the atmosphere require all of us to root out anything that stands in the way of our further growth and evolution.
It’s time to get real about walking the walk. It’s time to cultivate enough discernment to see where the truth lies. With the Winter Solstice so close at hand, every trace of corruption needs to be extracted from our repertoire. Within 10 days the spark that will ignite our sense of purpose and our intentions for the New Year will light up the Heart of Creation. Between now and then doing our part to restore peace to the planet comes down to embodying the truth in our own lives and guiding all of our actions from a unified and spiritually coherent place. Let me leave you with that, and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
