Current Configurations

by Henry Seltzer


December 1st Full Moon Full Moon Chart
The Sagittarius Full Moon is accompanied by the entrance of Venus into the same sign, while Jupiter forms an exact conjunction with Chiron in aspect to the nodal axis. We might be more inclined to question ourselves and our capacity for remaining wounded by the world, but we also have the ability to transcend that notion and rise above our former limitations. Saturn with Pluto all month long gives a different and more dire picture, but one that yields when we allow to simply take place the structural shifts that are demanded of us over the course of this important month.

December 8th Last Quarter Moon Last Quarter Moon Chart
This is an important configuration in which the Sun and Moon make a T-square with Uranus so that anything can happen. We may be subject to surprises at this time, and sudden enlightenment is certainly not out of the question. With Mars in aspect to Uranus also, accidents are another possibility so that it pays to be extra careful on the roads and in controlling reactivity.

December 16th New Moon New Moon Chart
This powerful Sagittarius New Moon exactly sextiles Jupiter and Neptune, now almost exactly conjunct each other in Aquarius. This creates an impulse toward the mystical side of life rather than the merely mundane. Venus nearby is also almost trine a stationing Mars, emphasizing beauty and compassion, and the practice of right relationship with others around us. A Grand trine in Fire with Eris and Mars emphasizes growth and process over sitting back and waiting, and perhaps also indicates a propensity for over-exuberance at times during this mid-month period.

December 21st Winter Solstice Winter Solstice
The entrance of the Sun into Capricorn is always an important time, but this year even more so, since the ruler of Capricorn, Saturn, is square to Pluto in the sky. The Sun joins Pluto in Capricorn within a few degrees and the heat of personal transformation is turned up another notch. The structure of our lives is encouraged to shift, and perhaps not very gently either.

December 24th First Quarter Moon First Quarter Moon Chart
The Sun exactly conjuncts Pluto in this powerful configuration. Mars is also retrograde in Leo, where it will remain for months, and Mercury is about to station. These retrogrades will make things both slower and more reflective, and the emphasis on Pluto means that there will be a strong impulse for transformation also. We are stewing in our own juices at this time, turning on the spit until we come out just right.

December 26th Mercury SR Mercury SR
This time Mercury stations retrograde exactly conjunct the nodal axis, which is powerful in and of itself, and also in aspect to both Mars and Eris. There could be a reactive stance taken by folks at this time, and also the determination to make it happen in whatever way necessary. Since both Mercury and Mars are retrograde however, it would be well to hold your horses and await events rather than trying to push the river. Mercury straightens out on January 15th, and then finally leaves its retrograde shadow late on February 3rd. Up until that time there are better indications for reflection and introspection than for direct action.

December 31st Full Moon Full Moon Chart
This important eclipse is accompanied by another on January 15th, making this turning of the year a special time. Given the retrogrades of Mercury and Mars it is an introspective one as well. Four planets plus the North Node in Capricorn make it a practical and serious period when we must face ourselves deeply, and when relationship with each other matters more than ever.
