Current Configurations

Current Configurations

The Full Moon of December 4th (see chart Full Moon Chart) is an exciting one, since it forms a close T-square to Uranus in Pisces. This configuration heralds the massing of six planets in Sagittarius over the next week. Also, Saturn stations retrograde the next day, trine Pluto. Radical restructuring is thus called for.

The weekend of December 9th and 10th is accompanied by a triple conjunction of Mercury, Mars and Jupiter in early Sagittarius, joining the Sun in that sign (Conjunction), so hold onto your hats.

The Last Quarter Moon of Tuesday December 12th (Last Quarter Moon Chart) is traditionally a time of increased consciousness as we realize what works and what doesn't in our new situation that has been sprouting since late November. In this case, the Moon aspects the Saturn-Pluto trine, while it conjuncts the South Node, exacerbating this tendency.

The New Moon of Wednesday, December 20th (New Moon Chart), conjuncts Pluto, and brings in the massive force of transformation that he represents. Pluto is like a bull in a china shop, making way for new stock on the shelves but with not a whole lot of finesse. Since this conjunction aspects U.S. Moon we might expect to see some changes also in the body politic as we go into the Winter Solstice and the Christmas holiday period of time. A newly retrograde Saturn still trines Pluto, so that a restructuring is appropriately indicated as we enter into the New Year. Since Mercury and Mars are also still in contact and Mercury occupies the Mars-Pluto midpoint, we can look for information to provide the key to our own metamorphosis. A JupiterUranus square and SaturnNeptune opposition await us in the New Year.

The First Quarter Moon, taking place on Wednesday December 27th (First Quarter Moon Chart), two days after the Christmas holiday, was regarded by Dane Rudhyar, the dean of modern Western Astrology, as a "crisis in action," when we had to find out what really was the viable portion of the seeds that had been planted at the time of the New Moon that preceded it. In this case, the Sun now in Capricorn triggers a close JupiterChiron sextile that is exact on the very next day. We may find that our internal wounds are catching up to us at this time, but that we also have the ability to transcend them in new and creative ways, consistent with the new selves to which we are in the process of giving birth.
