December will be another action packed month with lots of activity that moves us forward and takes us back, invites us to go within as well as expand outward, using what we have learned this year to create closure and clarity from the chaos. This is a divine invitation to move from healing to wholeness, if we can, in the words of the Serenity Prayer, “… accept the things we cannot change, change the things we can…” What we cannot change is other people; what we can change is the energy we use to create our lives. If we ever had an opportunity to create the life potential we have always wanted, this is it. The question is, do we have the courage to embrace the joy, peace, love, and abundance that we say we want? It only takes a thought to ask for a miracle, while it takes courage to allow that miracle to manifest and face the ripples of change that it will create. The standstill has become a turning point and we can all choose to face new directions.
Five planets change sign in December, the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Saturn, Jupiter goes retrograde, Uranus goes direct, we have the 6th Uranus/Pluto square, and Mercury goes into shadow retrograde. Planetary sign changes are energetic shifts that open new portals of potential. The personal planets change signs many times within a year, inviting us to take another tour around life’s wheel of experience. It is the upward spiral of evolution, marked by the slower moving outer planets, and the overall expansion of our conscious awareness, that invites us to expand and ascend through the portals and create new perspectives for our lives. We go around life’s wheel many times, coming full circle, or to the 360 degree mark, where we have to choose — do we go around the same wheel again or make the energy shift — raise our vibes — that will take us out of that wheel’s cycle and into a different one? It only takes a small shift and every little bit makes a big difference.
But we have to be willing to implement change, as well as have the courage to embrace, align with, and integrate its accompanying transformation for the long term. When we’re at a place where any change is welcome because we’re tired, disheartened, disillusioned, and unhappy, we are willing to take the first thing that comes along. At that point, anything is better than our current situation and we’re making a lateral move that may take us from the proverbial frying pan into the fire. If we want to make a real shift, we have to be willing to change our energetic frequency and vibration, to demolish everything we are and have been down to the foundation and rebuild. This requires a release of chaos and giving ourselves closure, eliminating our connections to what we know doesn’t serve us and inviting new possibilities that have unknown potential and outcomes.
After two years in Scorpio, where it has taken us down to the depths of our unconscious awareness, Saturn moves into Sagittarius, the sign of the philosopher, religion, higher learning, and anything foreign. It’s time for us to grow up (a Saturn lesson) and become disciples of our own learning, soul mission, life path, expansion, evolution, and ascension. Saturn teaches us discipline and focus, showing us where changes must be made and then stands next to us, as a constant reminder of the work that needs to be done, until we finish. It’s a little like telling your children they can play outside once they clean their room, then standing at the door to make sure they do it.
The Uranus/Pluto square of December is the 6th of 7, ruling the 3rd eye, according to the association between these 7 aspects and the 7 chakras first made by astrologer Carol Anne Ciocco. These have been occurring since June 2012, an expansion of the Pluto/Uranus conjunction of the early 1960s. We are evolving from flower children into the adult seeds of change. The 6th chakra is where the mind meets spirit, the divine and human can see ‘eye to eye’, and where we integrate our soul’s light into our human darkness. It’s our chance to release our emotional baggage and create our spiritual/human partnership before we reach the 7th chakra aspect, in March 2015, where we claim our ‘crown’ and finalize our journey back to our Source connection.
And there is the full moon on December 6, a reminder of unfinished business in any area where we are hesitating to let things go. Do we think we’re breaking a promise or a commitment to someone or something if we let go before we think there is completion? How do we know when something is finished? We can’t, we can only decide when we are finished and let that be our reason for letting go. We often take our healing commitments too literally and charge ourselves with the impossible task of making someone else happy, of bringing perfection to what we see as imperfect. Can we be happy if we’re too aware of others’ unhappiness? Is it possible for us to acknowledge that happiness is a choice that everyone gets to make for themselves?
It’s the new moon/Solstice conjunction on December 22 that is another powerful aspect this month. At 0 Capricorn and happening a week after the Uranus/Pluto square on the 15th, it takes us back to February 2008, when Pluto first entered Capricorn. This is the 3rd of 5 new moons occurring at 0 degrees, yet another invitation to go back to our center and re-align with our own truth. The Solstice is the darkest and longest night but it only lasts one night. From that point forward, we get a little more light each day. What happened in 2008 that is coming around for you now, in the form of a transformation, an unconscious desire to change something in your life, in a powerful and meaningful way? What commitments are you willing to make to yourself now, that don’t have anything to do with anyone else? Every point of transformation begins with a desire for change that follows a realization of some degree of discontentment or unhappiness. We can hide from or ignore our unhappiness or make a commitment to change it. But hiding is no longer possible now because we’re experiencing this at a soul level and it’s no longer possible to lie to ourselves, to convince ourlselves that our life is fine when we aren’t feeling it. While it is at that point that we feel truly awful, it is also our most powerful moment because we step into the possibility of transformation when our level of pain is greater than our fear of change.
We have been waiting for the world to change, as the world has been giving us every opportunity to change — the standoff has reached a turning point. It is now time for ‘the end’. Not as in the end of the world but as in closure and completion and an end to everything that has no more energy for you. It is our chance to end the year on a ‘high note’ and enter the new year on a ‘high vibe’. What are you ready for now, considering everything you have experienced in the last year or more? Endings clear the way for beginnings and we can’t move forward with our baggage — something has to go. What baggage are you releasing, or is releasing you, now?
What you may be seeing this month, and in your life, is ‘the end’, the termination, completion, and final death throes of something that has been in some kind of death phase for a long time, but you have been reviving it each time it got close to ending because you were afraid to see it leave your life. Think of the end of a marriage, a job, a cherished relationship, or a way of life. When it goes, so does your security, stability, and relative comfort. Even if you aren’t happy, it is still a known quantity. Without it, you have to redefine your life, which includes allowing yourself to know joy, peace, love, and abundance in an unlimited flow without any fear. Are you addicted to chaos? You’ll know that answer when you have to live without it. Can we feel purposeful if we aren’t fixing a problem, calming chaos, healing someone, or facing a challenge? We now have the opportunity to deal with this question very honestly and know whether we really want and are ready for ‘peace on earth and goodwill to men’.
What has come ‘to the end of its energy road’ is now reaching an END, no more reviving or resuscitating situations that simply have no more energy for you, no matter how much you want them to stay in your life. And if you aren’t ready for them to end, the other person is and they’re letting you know that they’re done and gone. Or the situation suddenly ends, or becomes so unbearable that you must walk away. New paths are beckoning as the old ones come to a necessary close and we must follow them because that is the evolution and ascension promise that we have made.
The keyword or theme for December is peace, which is not the absence of sound, motion, or movement, it is the presence of calm, serenity, and detachment. You can have calm in any storm when you refuse to participate in the chaos and instead, be in the energy of peace. Detach from the chaos and acknowledge, accept and take responsibility only for what is truly yours. Be selfish, self aware, and self focused so you can use this month’s energy to learn what is important to you, and use that to create the new foundation for your life. Set powerful intentions for the new outcomes you want so you will know what to release. Be clear about what you deserve and are willing to have in your life, because you are the only one who limits yourself and the flow of energy.
And as you go through the holidays, appreciate and be grateful for what you have learned this year because it is setting the stage for 2015 and the next stage of our evolution which I believe will be much more joyful, peaceful, and the path to fulfillment will be a lot clearer and easier to find. Have a wonderful month.
