AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 Dear Aquarius, December’s astro vibe rings holiday bells for you. Motivational Mars enters Aquarius for the first time in 2 years on 12/4. When you need extra energy to soar to the 10K level, Mars/Aquarius helps you see things more objectively. Mars is rammy too, so be careful not to overtax your nerves during this season of fun and merriment or you might get fried. Jupiter continues to brighten your relationship space but turns retro on 12/8, so a bit of luster could fade off significant others in your life. Things are generally positive though, so do your good Aquarius detachment thing (i.e. don’t take things personally) and all will be well. Later in the month on 12/21 ruler Uranus turns direct after 5 long months of retro motion in your mental zone. It will be easier to connect with bright ideas you have been trying to tap. Soon after stern Saturn is set to leave your outer world zone, which means some of the pressure around career and other major life choices you’ve felt over the last 2 plus years begins to wane. On 12/23 Saturn arrives at your networking/friendship zone for the first time in 30 years. Saturn will be in Sagittarius, a sign which plays well with you, so playing well with others is the operative theme! Stay tuned for more about what this means for you in future issues.
PISCES February 20 – March 20 Dear Pisces, Big news for you this December!

Saturn arrives at Sagittarius on 12/23 for the first time in 30 years which means it’s time for you to step up to a different place in your world. Saturn = Structure and when he enters a new zone always says, “If the structure is good, great! Build an addition and make it stronger. But if not, you must tear down the old structure and build a new one.” Saturn does not take no for an answer, so it will be one of the most significant times in your life. I’ll be writing more about what this means for you in future issues so stay tuned. Meanwhile mental Mercury, the bright Sagittarius Sun and sassy Venus are traveling in this same zone now, prepping the path for Saturn’s arrival in all the best ways.

Later in the month on 12/21 cell tower Uranus turns direct in Aries (at 12°) after 5 months of retro mo. This means you’ll be better able to tune into bright new concepts and also to get others on board with your ideas too. Then on 12/23 Saturn enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius for the first time in 30 year, beaming new structures your way. Sagittarius rules your big horizon zone, of travel, education, societal systems (law, religion) and most importantly your own personal core beliefs. Over the next many months you’ll have the benefit of the two largest planets in the solar system on your side!
TAURUS April 22 – May 20 Dear Taurus, December begins with ruler Venus in sassy Sagittarius dancing in your intimate relationship zone – a very nice place for her to be. Communicator Mercury and the Sun are here too making this a splendid time to have yummy fun with the ones you love. An excellent start to the holiday season! On 12/10 Venus enters fellow earth sign Capricorn which rules your travel zone, so if you have holiday travel plans you’ve got a helping hand. The big news for the month is that Saturn stationed in your relationship zone is getting ready to leave. Saturn = Structure and for over 2 years Saturn has been demanding you to take an honest look at all relationships in your life from love/marriage, family/friends to business partnerships and set appropriate boundaries where needed. Hopefully you have accomplished this tough task and feel more in control of your own destiny now. If not, you still have a bit of time, until 12/23 when Saturn leaves Scorpio not to return for 30 years. Saturn’s new territory is your 8th house of more intimate relationships (where Venus is now) which is also the zone of mutual resources. Saturn here can be a solid anchor which helps you settle down in the best port, or a ball and chain dragging you under. That’s why it’s so important to set those boundaries now!

CANCER June 21 – July 20 Dear Cancer, December begins with your ruler the Moon in red hot Aries who joins electric Uranus in your career/outer world zone. They play well with Mercury, the Sun and Venus traveling in your work/job space and also reach out to jolly Jupiter in your income zone. A great recipe for making golden confections! Sometimes you tender crabs prefer to hunker down in the sand, but this type of energy prompts you to get out and go to those holiday gatherings to meet and greet. If you stay home and suck your thumb, you’ll miss potential opportunities which could lead you exactly where you want to be. So dig out of any hole you’re in and get out there! Here’s another reason – on 12/23 Saturn enters Sagittarius which rules your work/job space for the first time in 30 years.

This December’s astro vibe optimizes all! Jolly Jupiter maintains his energy in Leo so others see your heart of gold. Jupiter also plays well with Mercury and Venus and more importantly with your ruler the Sun all in boisterous Sagittarius stationed in a favored space – your creativity zone.

Later in the month on 12/23 Lord Saturn enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius which rules your creativity zone. Saturn = Structure and arrives here for the first time in 3 decades.

VIRGO August 23 – September 22 Dear Virgo, Ruler Mercury is in rambunctious Sagittarius as December begins and joins the Sun and Venus all galloping through your home and family space. Kind of like having way too many kids home from school with 5 friends each! It’s fun, but messy too, and you know how you get frustrated with messes. You may as well relax and enjoy it, because other planetary influences on 12/1 support “yippee” energy lending that tone to the entire month. Mercury enters fellow earth sign Capricorn on 12/16 which gives you more practical ways to deal with it all. (Send those kids on a ski trip!) It pays to recognize the need to get things restructured around the house anyway because on 12/23 Saturn “Lord of Structure” enters your home zone for the first time in 30 years. Saturn is known for being demanding and doesn’t like to take no for an answer.

This all adds up to a fun holiday season for you! At mid month on 12/16 Venus enters earthy Capricorn which means she travels in your 4th house of home and family. This is a good place for the goddess of love to be during this time of family gatherings and she’ll be here until 1/3/15. Meanwhile Saturn is still in your financial resources zone but is set to exit later in the month. It’s time to wrap up any large financial deals and finalize any big purchases (real estate, etc), or come to the realization it’s not the appropriate time and tighten your money belt to save for later. On 12/23 for the first time in 30 years Saturn enters Sagittarius which rules your house of communication, mind, and mental attitude in general. Saturn here requests (demands!) nothing less than restructuring your entire mental process. Saturn, aka Lord of Karma, can be a tough task master, but luckily this time around plays harmoniously with many other planetary forces, so you’ll have all the help you need.

Saturn here requires you to look at the structure of your financial resources and build a stronger foundation. Saturn can be tough, but this time around works well with other major planets so it will be easier than you think to create a more solid financial base.
