Astrological Happenings December 2016

We start December with one of the outer planets, Uranus, Retrograde. By December 19th Mercury will be in Retrograde motion as well. I’ll come back to the outer planet later.

Firstly, let’s deal with the Mercury Retrograde. Mercury is the planet of communication and is usually the planet that people will ask me about. Especially my radio people. Quite often when Mercury is Rx there are lots of issues with computers and telephone lines, the main stay of running radio stations!

This Mercury Rx will begin on December 19th and go through January 8th 2017 in the sign of Capricorn. Retrogrades gives us the opportunity for a “do-over”. We can revisit, reconnect and finish those projects we have left undone!

Have you wanted to write out your career goals for 2017 and haven’t done so yet? Mercury Rx is the time to complete writing those goals so that in the New Year you can take action. You could put obstacles and challenges in your own way by not making time to write out your goals. Recognize whether you are creating your own issues or are you allowing outside influences to get in your way?

Venus moves into the sign of Aquarius on December 8th and friendship becomes a high priority. What is your definition of a friend? Who are your friends? What are you gaining and giving in your relationships? It’s time to re-evaluate. For those of you who are single you could be introduced to new friends that can turn into a romance in the New Year. For those of you already in relationships you will find yourselves getting involved in new activities with friends.

As Venus also represents what you love in terms of your career take the time to use the creative energy of Venus in Aquarius to write out how you love spending your work time.

Mars, the planet of action and energy moves into the meditative sign of Pisces in the middle of December. This is an odd combination as Mars represents the warrior and Pisces is very calm and Zen. Time for the warrior to practice yoga and mindful meditation. This will allow you to come up with creative and new ideas of how to move forward with your goals in 2017. Watch out for too much drinking at this time!

Uranus, the planet of awakening and awareness turns direct on December 29th, the same day we have our New Moon in Capricorn, AND we are having a Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn.

Uranus direct allows your creativity to flow in a more even manner, time and fashion. You will have access to your intuition on a more regular basis. Breakthroughs come after break downs. The break downs usually happen in the Retrograde period and the breakthroughs come when Uranus has gone direct.

Take a look at all the important areas of your life. The emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, psychological and financial and where was there a break down in one of those areas. Now is the time to recognize which of those areas, and it may be more than one, needs to be changed. What action do you need to take in order to move forward and leave behind those actions that don’t work for you anymore? For example, if you realize that you have been holding onto a relationship that’s not working and during the Uranus Rx you had a break down, the breakthrough would be its finally time to let go and move away from that relationship. The same can be said for work that doesn’t empower you. Are you fed up with being criticized and blamed by your boss for his/her shortcomings? Do you want to feel more empowered? Make plans for 2017 as to how you are going to move away from people, places and situations that are toxic and not in your best interest.

The New Moon in Aquarius occurs on January 27th 2017. Mercury will leave Capricorn Retrograde and go direct on January 8th. By 9th January there will be no Retrogrades in the sky! Venus moves into Pisces and I’ll take a look at Saturn in Sagittarius again before it changes signs.

Happy New Year
