The Astrology of December features Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Chiron and Uranus. This is another quite powerful month as we transition into what promises to be an intense year. Mercury is of course retrograde making this month a meditative and introspective time as well. Mercury slips backwards through the Zodiac until its December 13th station, after which it remains in its retrograde shadow, gradually easing, until the new year. Jupiter also changes direction this month, on Christmas Day, a spiritual event having some significance as Jupiter reverses direction directly in line with both Chiron, the Wounded Healer, and with revolutionary Uranus. And Uranus itself, residing on the Aries point and aspected by the New Moon and Solar Eclipse from the end of last month, stations to direct motion on December 9th. Mars is featured in the First Quarter Moon from the very beginning of the month, the late night of December 1st, when it forms an exact T-square with the Sun and Moon, increasing the tension of what is an already volatile configuration.
This means at a minimum that surprises will continue as the month unfolds. The nature of Uranus is a two-edged sword, not so easy to handle if your goal is to simply maintain the status quo ante, without change and in long-lasting stasis. If your goal is change – and life itself requires change – Uranus can be your great friend, producing revolutionary movement and new ideas just when these ideas are the most sorely needed. The Uranus-Plutosquare is in somewhat of a hibernation period now, but will come roaring back in June of 2012, the first of five exact conjunctions that will come to characterize the nature of this tumultuous decade.
And Jupiter is featured also. When Mercury stations mid-month in early Sagittarius, it does so while aspecting Jupiter. Mercury will also be in square with Chiron and in trine with Uranus. In this spiritually enriched time of the year, Chiron, or the Wounded Healer, brings yet another side of mystical dimension to this subtle and numinous series of configurations. Since both Jupiter and Uranus are aspected also, and are in slow motion, coming to their respective stations, their combination is productive and powerful. Uranus with Jupiter indicates the potential for new ideas to come into being, and these ideas are likely to connect us in some way to inner wounding, reminding us once again that our biggest obstacle is ourselves, and that by accepting and then integrating our flaws at the deepest level we are taking our first step toward transcending them.
The powerful December 10th Lunar Eclipse highlights both Mars and Venus, so that all forms of relationship, especially between men and women, are also brought to the fore at this time. Since Mars reaches its square with the eclipse degree exactly in sync with the CapricornNew Moon of Saturday, December 24th, Christmas Eve, this is likely to be a very spiritually active season as we head into 2012. The chart for the New Year is also quite interesting, emphasizing Pluto just as Mercury is finally escaping its retrograde shadow. We are in for more surprises and we are likely to witness much more revolutionary ardor in the year ahead. In the final analysis this reflects evolutionary activity on the part of humanity as a whole that is taking us out of our cultural infancy.
