Weekly Astrology December 24-31

From December 24th to the 31st balancing enthusiasm with responsibility moves us closer to our real selves.  We may see the best and the worst of people simultaneously.  The whole world improves and our own lives in particular when we think more of other people’s positive qualities and forget the rest.

24th – Monday – Mercury Parallel Jupiter, Mercury Sesquiquadrate Uranus, Mercury Square Neptune –  Thoughts are flying everywhere, lifting us to great heights.  This is an inspirational moment; we need to relish in it.  There will be time for a comprehensive assessment later.  We are able to drink deep from the pool of past experiences and still create something fantastically original.
 
25th – Tuesday –  This is a pleasant day for spending time with the people who matter most in our lives.  Self expression comes easy; big ideas emerge.  Right now seems disconnected from yesterday and tomorrow.   Living in the moment can be either liberating or just plain nuts.  In any case, this is ok as we will concentrate on practical concerns later in the week.
 
26th – Wednesday –  Mercury Parallel Pluto –  We have a propensity to either ignore some irritation or to dive deeply into it.  This is a wakeup call.  Avoid situations where your criticism is aimed at others.  And by the same token, be easy when people seem a bit touchy. 
 
27th – Thursday –  Jupiter Semi-sextile Saturn –  It is better to err on the side of caution when we are trying to measure our options.  Optimism and fear of limitation play off against each other.   This is not the moment for self doubt; even if plans have to be modified in motion, it is important to keep some forward momentum.
 
28th – Friday –  Venus Sextile Pluto, Mercury Parallel Saturn – Some genuine limitations confront us.  However, with disciplined thought and concentrated effort, this can still be a fun day.  Colleagues benefit from encouragement.  Many relationships need transformation; today requires us to apply some extra oomph to make these changes.
 
29th – Saturday – Mercury Semi-sextile Pluto, Mars Semi-sextile Uranus –  In order to grow we need to be empirical.  Gathering information from many sources, some of them new, allows us to see a more comprehensive picture of the world and our life in it.  We have to take baby steps to open new horizons.
 
30th – Sunday –  Nervousness and indecision can rob us of the beauty of the day.  The die is cast.  Vacillation and procrastination are worthless.  Peace comes by acting definitively. In the process of kissing the old year goodbye, we can move through an archetype of letting go of our own past selves.
 
31st – Monday –  Mercury Semi-sextile Venus, Sun Parallel Mercury,  Mars enters Aries –  After taking so many cautious steps and evaluating so many alternatives, we suddenly plunge forward with a great splash.  We are on fire and the optimism of our most cherished beliefs can catapult us toward our next adventure in 2019.

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday.  In keeping with the aspects of the day, this year Katie, Teddy, and I spent a quiet evening with Tobey and Wendy celebrating.
 
Plans for  Christmas are taking shape.  My friend, Mary Weiss, is coming from Hawaii to be with Katie and me.  Tobey will join us a few days later after her return from Kentucky, where she will be visiting with her two sons.
 
New Year’s Eve will probably be a quiet affair with a few friends, playing games and sharing our intentions for 2019. 
 
Being grateful:
 
The  editor of Natural Awakenings, Sharon Bruckman, wrote about the importance of gratitude in her column at the front of the magazine. We all have so much to be grateful for and I’m glad to be reminded of this.
