Your transformational saga continues, Libra. One action-packed month follows upon another as December begins to unfold. The seismic shocks that have been running through your life lately take on new dimensions in this late fall period, which has a lot to do with how you relate to important others and to family and tribe. Interesting twists and conundrums add a very different flavor to this month's events surrounding this major theme, as your learning curve intensifies and as communication to others around you becomes even more the keynote to your evolving process, leading to further revelations and relationship activity after the middle of the month. Through the course of this climactic month, you are coming to see others in your life, including important family members, in a new way, as a fundamental component.
As an overview for the entire month, it is of interest that your ruler, Venus, retrogrades on the 21st, in your fourth solar sector, while Uranus stations direct in mid-December in your opposite sign. The entire month is a more thoughtful one for you because as Venus is slowing down to a crawl, she thus more potent and also more greatly internalized. It is significant that Venus is located in your fourth solar sector of home, family and tribe. This is called the nadir, or bottom, of your chart because it refers to the deep inner work that you require in order to keep yourself fully alive to all your possibilities, as do the so-called "Water Houses" in general. You might, during the course of this climactic month of December, actually come to a better understanding of the nature of your family ties and your connection to your home base, both physical and symbolic.
With Saturn, ruler of your home and family sector, in trine with Jupiter and given emphasis by the Moon, briefly, at the time of the First Quarter Moon of December 9th, this can also be a time of slower going and even of isolation, as you create long-lasting lessons for yourself in this area of life. You could be focused on repairs that create a better physical environment long-term, and also on how to repair existing social situations involving community and tribal connection within your local surroundings. Your family members, and those of your extended family, could also benefit from a more deliberate approach, a pacing of the stages in the necessary forms of bonding.
Your focus on family is further emphasized by the presence of Pluto, located in this same sector and highlighted by the New Moon that practically begins the month. Pluto also remains in continued intense aspect to trickster Uranus, standing still in your relationship sector. The symbolism of Pluto is dark and mysterious, partaking of the substance of death and rebirth, so indicating that there is indeed a massive process of transformation of your home and family scene, as mentioned many times in this column, that continues to unfold for you in a very poignant way, throughout this end-of-year and on into 2014.
Uranus standing stock-still in the sky also implies a greater and more powerful presence for his lightning flashes of illumination, and a further elucidation of the area in your chart that it rules, namely self-expression, and the area of its current location, namely your relationship sector. Given the nature of his symbolism, you might be on the lookout for epiphanies involving each of these important departments of life as you go through the current monthly cycle. The iconoclastic elements of Uranus' fundamental nature as astrological archetype is powerful for you as you negotiate both the issues of relationship understanding and of what your creative output might actually consist, were you to put your mind and heart totally behind your expanded vision.
