Astro Report for December 2012

December, 2012

Mercury enters Sagittarius

Monday, December 10, 2012 – 8:26 pm EST

The Planet of Communication begins its trek thru optimistic Sagittarius. We speak of great truths and divine wisdoms, but this is when those utterances will make sense. Be versatile with your opinions and have an open mind to expressing thoughts. Healthwise, it is a good time to plan ahead and strategically take control of addictions.

New Moon – Sagittarius at 21 degree

Thursday, December 13, 2013 – 3:41 am EST

As the Moon enters its new phase, begin to encourage others to go with the flow of the Universe. Start a new project on a whim while your imagination is whirring with ideas. Don’t worry about finishing it, because Uranus will assist with that energy when it goes Direct. You have time.

Uranus goes Direct – Aries at 4 degrees

Thursday, December 13, 2012 – 5:27 am EST

Progress is about to go headstrong with a squeal! Uranus doesn’t like to be bound by traditional means. It is a “break-out” Planet that bursts with zeal to move towards a greater goal. When Uranus is in Aries, that endeavour is multiplied exponentially. Any project started will push thru with a lot of action behind it.

Venus enters Sagittarius

Saturday, December 15, 2012 – 11:26 pm EST

The Planet of Love will breeze thru life. It will seem there is a motive to move forward. Adventure will take precedence on the homefront. Pleasure by any means is ideal for Venus, but there is a price to pay. Beware of fire and explosions, especially while traveling.

Sun enters Capricorn

Friday, December 21, 2012 – 6:00 am EST

Personalities will begin to ground and center with an intention to focus on the self. This is a time for us to look into ourselves to prepare for the New Year’s resolutions. Watch your spending habits. Money is tight right now. Follow your budget and you will be fine.

Mayan Calendar Information

Friday, December 21, 2012 – 7:31 am EST (the moment before sunrise)

In Honduras, the moment will be Friday, December 21, 2012 at 6:12 am CST.

So, will the world end when the Mayan Calendar ends on Dec 21, 2012? Ask yourself the same quetion when it is December 31st. The answer is, “No, the world will NOT end.” However, the calendar will recycle to the next cycle. In fact the Mayan Calendar will begin a new long count, called a B’ak’tun. The B’ak’tun is approximately 5125 years long. Currently, the Maya are in the 12th B’ak’tun, but the calendar will recycle to the next B’ak’tun on December 21, 2012 at sunrise. This is when the 13th B’ak’tun begins. Think of it as entering a new “millenium”.

The Maya believed a day started at the sunrise, like many civilizations. Thus, the last moment of the 12th B’ak’tun would happen around 6:12 am CST in the Honduras. And the 13th B’ak’tun would begin at 6:13 am CST as the Sun rises above the horizon.

Alban arthan (Midwinter or Yule) is the Celtic rebirth of the Sun. The date is usually around December 21st, when the Sun enters Capricorn. It marks the shortest day of the Solar Year. It is the Winter Solstice. Solstice stems from a druidic word meaning “time stands still”. The Sabbat represents life and new promises. It is also known as Wren Day in some parts of Ireland. Cernunnos and Mabon are the celebrated Gods, which makes this Sabbat very male-oriented. Yule logs are burned and Yule trees are decorated. Kissing under the mistletoe is custom along with bell ringing and overnight Fire Vigils. Sacred foods to this Sabbat include white wines, cakes, bitter herbs, mints and Juniper Mead (aka Gin). Celebrating the new Sun (new Solar Year), the giving of gifts and establishing resolutions were typical holiday themes. (Resolutions were initiated and considered at Samhain during the Dark Times.)

Santa Claus has several origins of thought. As St Nicholas, he was a poor priest in Spain, who loved children so much, he would make them gifts by hand and give them as gifts on the doorsteps at Yule. Nordic legends call this entity “Winter Spirit” or “Sinter Klaas”, which was anglicized as “Santa Claus”. Legend has him wearing a long, flowing coat of green to represent the “green man”. However, the color red was instituted when Coca-Cola got the idea to use this historical figure and dress him in red – the traditional color for Coca-Cola.

Harmonic Concordance

November 9, 2003 until December 21, 2012

The Harmonic Concordance that began on November 9, 2003 with 6 Planets lining up in a Hexafus position, marked the beginning of an energy vortex that would be completed by December 21, 2012. The Earth and Sun will align with the Galactic center. It is supposed to open a portal of Divine Consciousness. When this portal opens, the Earth is supposed to be flooded with a multitude of unknown frequencies that should raise everybody’s awareness to the next level. We are spiritual beings sharing physical experiences at this level on this Planet, Earth.

Earth is noted to be the Planet of Love for our higher selves to learn Love and Gratitude. It is a very green Planet – the same color of our Heart Chakras. It is at this point that we become centered in our individual gifts and skills. Remember to balance your Chakras to assure you are prepared for receiving Galactic Messages.

When the Harmonic Concordance began in 2003, it marked a moment of learning on our part. Many lessons have been offered and many have been learned or side-stepped. What will you be able to say you learned by December 21st?

Christmas Eve – Capricorn at 3 degrees

Monday, December 24, 2012 – 4:42 pm EST at sunset

The kids will be exicted the whole night long waiting for the proverbial Santa Claus to come down the chimney with a bagful of gifts for the good kids and little bags of coal for the bad kids. It is a time for eggnogging and hobknobbing with friends and family. For some families, the traditional story of “‘Twas the Night before Christmas” is read. In the Sign of Capricorn, traditions are very important, regardless of your heritage or religious background. Remember, leave some milk and cookies for the Jolly One!!

Christmas Day – Capricorn at 4 degrees

Tuesday, December 25, 2012 – 7:34 am EST at sunrise

Breakfast is going to be a very important part to starting this day. It is going to be a day of taking action. Mars is the ruling Planet of the day, so we look and see that Mars will be making a transition from Capricorn into Aquarius today, making this a very busy day indeed.

Mars enters Aquarius

Tuesday, December 25, 2012 – 7:49 pm EST

The Planet of action transits towards independence. There is determination to make this a day supercharged. When Mars enters Aquarius, note that actions can become superficial and impractical, but adaptive. Fix the damage the best you can at the moment and move on with life. There will be time later to make proper corrections.

Full Moon – Cancer at 7 degrees

Friday, December 28, 2012 – 5:21 am EST

Emotions can run high when the Moon is in its ruling House. Full Moon energies are just as devastating, too! So, here is a Full Moon in its ruling House of Cancer. Emotions will be running amok! It’s a Friday – end of the week – folks will be ready for the weekend for sure. Kids are still home from school getting cabin fever. Time to let loose and unwind! But keep it safe…

Native Lore

The Full Moon names include Cold Nights Moon or Long Nights Moon. The winter is settling in and the nights are frigid-cold and long. Animals that hibernate thru the winter are in their dwellings snoozing away. It is a time for repose and settling in for a long winter’s “nap”.

Sun conjuncts Pluto – Capricorn at 9 degrees

Sunday, December 30, 2012 – 7:57 am EST

The Sun moves faster in the sky than Pluto does, so its effects aspect upon Pluto. The personality traits of the Sun can burden the transformational energies of Pluto. The ego can be stubborn when it comes to making adjustments and changes in one’s life. When we start looking at making resolutions for the coming new year, we tend to fight the urge to make those changes for the better, but in fact it is our ego that stands in the way of progress. If you can step aside from the mundane and truly see what others see in you, you will be able to make the right changes in your life and transform into something that is beyond belief. The mystery of your life is within your mind alone. Harness the power of change and, behold, you will become enlightened.

New Year’s Eve – Capricorn at 10 degrees

Monday, December 31, 2012 – 4:47 pm sunset

This whole month has been preparing you for this moment. Mercury started us off with speaking the truth and being optimistic. The Moon has been encouraging us to go with the flow and not overreact. Uranus going direct put us in a progressive state to move forward with enthusiasm. Venus gave us the go-ahead for adventure. The Sun entering Capricorn prepared us to delve into our psyche and work on our resolutions. The holidays gave us an advantage to recycle our lives and dreams to a whole new level. Mars moved us into independence. And finally the conjunction between the Sun and Pluto should bring it all together. It is time to make a resolution for the New Year… and live up to it.
