Astrology Transits December 2017 – Plan Then Act

What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.  Meister Eckhart



The month of December begins on a challenging note with Mars opposing Uranus.  Mingled in is the full Moon in Gemini, the Neptune influence and Mercury retrograde.  As the month progresses the energy mellows and is quite nice around the holidays.  The month ends with Saturn moving into Capricorn, which ushers in a two-year period devoted to building structures and facing reality.


Mars in Libra Opposition Uranus in Aries. Mars opposition Uranus continues as the month opens.  As noted last month, this is a touchy dynamic.  It will be noticed in any kind of relationships.  You may experience it as a decision to no longer put up with someone else’s stuff.  Unfairness in any relationship will be the hot button that could derail a relationship.  It’s best to wait to state your case until after December  9 when cooler energy prevails.


After December 3, the focus is on studying, planning and solidifying your ideas due to Mercury turning retrograde at 29 degrees Sagittarius.


Mercury is also now out-of-bounds. When a planet is out-of-bounds, its energy becomes very strong and seems to take over the chart.


Think before you speak, as Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius makes you prone to blurting out whatever is on your mind.


Back up your computer and cell phone just in case.  If possible, delay foreign travel until these aspects change in several days.


December 3, Gemini Full Moon.  The Moon at 11 degrees Gemini is in opposition to the Sun at 11 degrees Sagittarius and square Neptune at 11 degrees Pisces forming a T-Square.  This is one interesting dynamic as Jupiter in Scorpio is also trine Neptune. There are lots of chances for confusion during this particular full Moon.


Look for even more “hidden” news to come out about improprieties by prominent people (Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces).  There could be additional stories regarding religion or the clergy.


The Sabian symbol for 11 degrees of Gemini is:  “A Black Slave Girl Demands Her Rights of Her Mistress.”  This means that it is time to stand up and say “no” to those things and people who are no longer serving you. It is about showing your authenticity, walking your talk and talking your truth.  Funny (or not) how this is right in tune with recent news stories!


December 6:  Mercury is conjunct Saturn at 28 degrees Sagittarius and both are Sextile Mars at 28 degrees Libra.  Mercury conjunct Saturn brings a sobering, down-to-earth feeling to the overheated Mars opposition Uranus that opened the month.  The lovely sextile to Mars in Libra adds a bit of a cooperative feeling.


December 9, Mars enters Scorpio.  Mars in Scorpio brings a burst of energy around our deeper motivations.  It illuminates our deepest emotions and desires.  With Jupiter also in Scorpio, it is time, now more than ever, to throw off our restraining thoughts and go for it.


The downside of Mars in Scorpio is that you may be more prone to holding resentments, jealousy and simmering anger.


December 10 through December 16:


Mercury in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries is nice for ideas popping in out of the blue.  Pay attention to hunches.


Venus in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces could bring some confusion around relationship matters.  Things may not be what they seem to be.  This transit is good for contemplation, not good for action and making decisions.


Sun conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius  is another good idea day.


Sun in Sagittarius trine Uranus in Aries.  You may feel bored and wish you could hit the open road.  This is another good idea day so let those ideas percolate, think original thoughts or invent something.


December 18, New Moon in Sagittarius. All new Moons are about starting something new.  This one is about opening and expanding your mind, your consciousness and your horizons.


The dynamics change on December 20 when Saturn enters Capricorn where it will stay until March 23, 2020.  Don’t panic, taskmaster Saturn can be harsh but it can also bring rewards.  I’ll talk more about this at a later time.


December 20 and 21, First Saturn, and then Venus enters Capricorn.  Career matters heat up from now through January 21st.  The fog lifts and the way becomes clear to meet your career goals. Saturn is strong and at-home when in Capricorn.


Venus enters Capricorn on December 25.  Venus, the planet of love and relationships in Capricorn on Christmas Day bodes well for traditional family gatherings.  The status quo will be important.  This is not the time to let others hear the brilliant new ideas you came up with earlier in the month.  Be like Saturn and keep the conversation traditional, grounded and maybe even somewhat boring.

    I am looking forward to interacting with you on this comment page. Please leave any astrology questions or comments below. I would absolutely love to hear any suggestions about topics you would like to have me discuss, etc. I am preparing for an online class that will launch in early 2018. Your suggestions will help me target the areas that you most want to learn about.

  • Ashin

    Can you predict progeny ?

    • Ruby

      Astrology can tell you about your children and their traits. It can also tell when would be the most opportune time to become pregnant.

      • Ashin

        I would like to know about my opportunity to conceive
        DOB : 25/10/1990
        TOB : 7.20 A.M
        POB : SURAT

        The most opportune time for you to conceive this year is from the 11th of February through the middle of March. The time around the lunar eclipse on February 15th is an especially good time because the Sun, Moon and Venus will all be in your 5th house of children in the sign of Pisces. Good Luck to you.

  • Ashin

    Thanks for the response ruby. I will try during this period. And will keep you updated on this .

  • Ashin

    Sure, I will keep in touch with u. Really hope I succeed in conception this time. Trying since 5 years now 🙁
    It’s too hard for me

  • Ashin

    Hi ruby, I m still struggling with conception. Right now undergoing fertility treatment

    • Ruby

      Ashley, I am sorry to hear that you are still having trouble conceiving. I have been hearing a lot of very encouraging research around diet and conception. Researchers have noted that food allergies or autoimmune diseases such as celiac (gluten intolerance) have a profound effect on conception. Most functional medicine doctors are aware of the research and have developed treatment plans to deal with this issue. Check out Dr. Peter Osborn’s book or website for more information.
