Astrology Transits December 2019 – Shifting into Hope

Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.― Eckhart Tolle

With a solar eclipse and a concentration of energy in Sagittarius — and then Capricorn — we are looking at another power packed month.  All through the month, the careful Capricorn energy is balanced by several planets transiting the more exuberant sign of Sagittarius.  Jupiter in Capricorn now, also reflects the need to cautiously go out on a limb to try something new.

November 29-30:  Mercury Sextile Saturn at 17-18 Degrees of Scorpio/Capricorn.  Mercury sextile Saturn brings high mental discipline.  Use this grounded energy to complete difficult or tedious tasks or problems. It would also be a great time to finish that book you have been working on  forever.

December 2: Jupiter enters Capricorn. 

Venus sextile Mars at 8 Degrees Capricorn/Scorpio;

Venus conjunct South Node at 8 Degrees Capricorn;

Mars trine & sextile the Nodes at 8 Decrees Scorpio; and

Mercury sextile Pluto at 21 Decrees Scorpio/Capricorn.

Jupiter will remain in Capricorn until December 19, 2020.  Jupiter, the planet of expansion and optimism, finds his energy a little bit restrained in Capricorn, the sign of boundaries, reality and limitation.  However, Jupiter here will modulate the more serious Capricorn energy, while Saturn will modulate Jupiter’s sometimes over-the-top energy.

Wow, such a lot of energy between Venus, Mars, the Nodes, Mercury and Pluto this month.  Since it is mostly sextiles and trines everything should flow smoothly.  You can best use this energy to confidently move toward your goals, while remaining aware of any real restrictions and limitations around you.

December 7-8:  Sun square Neptune at 15-16 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. The Sun transiting the religious sign of Sagittarius square Neptune in the spiritual sign of Pisces draws our attention to all religions, ideologies and belief systems. Because squares are challenging energy, disputes can arise over the “best and correct” belief system.  Keep an open mind and realize the good in all systems.  Paraphrasing Dr. Fred, the beloved former pastor of Mile High Church of Religious Science in Denver:  “Religion is like a pyramid.  At the bottom there are strong divisions.  The higher you go toward the top the less the divisions matter.”

Sun square Neptune is a good time to zero in on the difference between your pipe dreams (Neptune) and what you can actually achieve (Sun).

December 9:  Mercury enters Sagittarius.  Mercury is 100% out of its retrograde shadow and ideas now flow freely.  Truth, or lack thereof, will be in the news all through the month.

December 10 to 14:  Venus conjunct Saturn and Pluto from 18 to 22 Degrees Capricorn.  Watch for the intensity to increase around politics, business and the financial markets.  Power plays between and among those entities will be front and center.  Venus rules money, Saturn rules one-upmanship and Pluto rules power and control.  You get the picture!

You will feel this energy the most if you have planets between 15 and 25 degrees of Taurus, Virgo, Pisces or Scorpio (the earth signs) or planets in those degrees in  Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra (the cardinal signs).  This charged energy is most apt to affect your financial life or your relationship life.  It will be an easier energy for the earth signs, but a little challenging for the cardinal signs.

December 11-12:  Full Moon at 20 Degrees Gemini/Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces. This Gemini Full Moon is known as the Long Night’s Moon.  The Full Moon in Gemini opposite the Sun in Sagittarius, the sign of travel and square Neptune, the planet of confusion, can cause travel mix-ups.  Keep your wits about you and be aware of your surroundings.  While travel can be a little dicey, spiritual contemplations can be highly rewarding.

December 14:  Jupiter Trine Uranus at 3 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus. Expect the unexpected with Jupiter trine Uranus.  Jupiter trine Uranus in the money signs of Capricorn and Taurus can bring unexpected financial opportunities.  Use this transit to try something new and to take small risks. Remember the emphasis now should be on slow, steady growth. Jupiter is somewhat restrained while in Capricorn so you don’t need to be overly concerned about going too far out there.

December 17-21:  Mars in Scorpio Sextile Saturn/Pluto at 19-21 Degrees Capricorn.  Mars sextile Saturn is a superb aspect to help you to act on something you have been putting off.  However, with Pluto as part of the picture there is some danger that you will find yourself going over (and over and over) old slights and hurts until you become unreasonably angry.

December 19:  Sun Transits 26-27 Degrees Sagittarius at the Galactic Center.  The Sun transiting the center of the Milky Way (the Galactic Center) opens you up to cosmic truths.  Your subconscious mind is activated facilitating the release of old emotional wounds and traumas.

December 19-20:  Mercury Square Neptune at 15-16 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces.  Mercury square Neptune fosters lies, deception, false beliefs and confused thought patterns.  Its best to put off signing important legal, personal or financial documents until Mercury moves on after December 22.  If you need to make travel arrangements, double check your reservations and itinerary.  Its best not to initiate any important conversations at this time if it can be avoided.

December 20:  Venus enters Aquarius.  Venus will be in Aquarius though January 13, 2020. Venus in Aquarius allows you to break out of a rut as you will be attracted to the new, unusual, and innovative.  If you have been in a relationship that is less than optimal, Venus in Aquarius allows you to view such relationships dispassionately.  Most importantly, Venus in Aquarius helps you to love yourself, despite what others might think.

December 21:  Venus Square Uranus at 2 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus.  Venus and Uranus are in mutual reception (i.e. in each other’s signs) making their connection more challenging than normal.  Tensions may be sparked between friends or people within social groups.  The good news is that the discord could leave as quickly as it started.

December 22:  Winter Solstice  The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere “to stand still.” In the northern hemisphere, the Sun’s path has reached its southernmost position before it starts to move north once again. The winter solstice celebrates the Sun’s rebirth.  It is believed to hold powerful regenerative energy and is an opportune time for self-reflection.  Light a candle or attend a solstice bonfire celebration to honor this time of “moving into the light.”

December 25:  Solar Eclipse at 4 Degrees Capricorn. 

This Christmas Day solar eclipse features the Sun and Moon as part of a stellium (4 or more planets) in Capricorn including Jupiter, South Node, Saturn and Pluto.  Use this time to envision how you want year 2020 to be as solar eclipses bring in new energy.  The Sun and Moon conjunct Jupiter and the South Node bring helpful energy for making changes in your life.

December 30:  Mercury Trine Uranus at 2 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus.  The year ends with the Sun and Jupiter conjunct in Capricorn and along with the Mercury/Uranus trine.  Though these lovely connections are temporary, they do end the year on an upbeat note.  Mercury trine Uranus is sure to bring insights galore and can liven up your New Years celebrations.  Enjoy!
