The Moon slips into thoughtful, peace-loving Libra as we enter the week between Christmas and New Years. And where is Libra's ruling planet Venus?
She's still hanging with Pluto in the Underworld, both of them trying to make the best of being in the Saturnian sign of Capricorn. And Venus is retrograde so she can't get her own mojo going very well. But don't let them bring you down as the year winds down...
For Jupiter, great golden god of Joviality, is leaving Saturn's school of hard knocks (Capricorn and Aquarius) and entering its home sign of sweet Pisces on the 29th!
Expect change in the atmosphere, in the mood of the collective, of the thrust of the pandemic.
While Jupiter may get carried away at first..watch out for floods, in the World at large or in your bathroom...order will eventually prevail for Jupiter likes nothing better than bringing a happy harmony out of messy chaos.
Have a little faith. Perhaps the person who comes to fix the plumbing has a twinkle in their eye for you.
And whatever party is getting started, Jupiter in Pisces will want to include everyone so prepare to spend a little extra on beverages!
Mercury moves in-between Venus and Pluto at this same time. This is another hopeful sign as Mercury can negotiate with Pluto for Venus' release. This is Venus as the beautiful maiden Persephone and she will break free when the time is right and return to the land of sunlight and meadows once again.
So have patience with your loved ones, especially if they are feeling blue. It just takes a little time to ride out the dark time of the year.
On the last day of 2021, the Moon and Mars will be together at 12 degrees of Sagittarius. This is exactly where this past New Moon took place so something is activated now that you sowed the seeds for at that New Moon earlier in the month, whether consciously or not.
And so begins 2022. On January 1, the Moon is conjunct the Galactic Core at 27 degrees of Sagittarius. How have the events of 2021 changed... or hardened... your beliefs, your philosophy, your views of the World?
Are you ready for another Galactic download? 2022 will test all your perceptions!
