The beat goes on, Scorpio. Another interesting month ensues, to close out what has been, on reflection, a rather trying and yet exciting year. You are getting a foundational feel for what you truly value and this is the heart of your current experience as you move further along the arc of your personal development and into an extremely powerful end-of-year time frame. It benefits you to continue to explore along the lines of accommodating to spiritual as well as practical realities, and to recognize where you can find the golden mean of allowing both of these almost antithetical sides of life to coexist. Over the long run, you win when you can travel your path of learning and growth without sacrificing earthly needs. This puts you in the right space to continue to move forward.
As an overview for the entire month, it is of interest that your co-ruler Mars enters your sector of dream imagination and inner work beginning on December 7th, where he remains for seven months or more, due to retrogradation, into the summer of 2014. This presages a period of time more intensely inward turning, which runs counter to the activity-orientation of our current culture. Instead of a human "doing" you are thus being gently nudged on the part of a benevolent universe into becoming a human "being." The ruler of this sector of your solar chart is Venus, located in Capricorn, and also changing to retrograde motion this very month, on the same day as the Winter Solstice and in the same sign, potentially taking you even farther to the inside. Matters of external communication might therefore lag in comparison to the richer illumination of your inner world.
Uranus, corresponding to the planetary archetype of The Trickster, is also alive and well within your chart, and highlighted this month as it stations. Uranus standing still in the sky symbolizes an increased presence in your sector of health regimens and day-to-day realities, including your work place. This energy can be wild and impulsive, and include the rapid-fire emergence of deep insights into your entire life condition, so forming an exciting backdrop for the ongoing transformational import of this year-end time frame.
Saturn, planet of restriction and limitation is currently located in your sign, or the identity sector of your solar chart. There it is amplified in meaning so that you have been no doubt feeling a sense of increased responsibility since the fall of the previous year. Saturn receives a boost this month by a trine to Jupiter, augmented by the Moon at the time of the First Quarter, and is therefore even more greatly activated. This energy is antithetical to that of Uranus, also emphasized in this month's evolving cycle, creating an energetic tug-of-war with no particular winner. You are feeling pulled in fact in several different directions in the midst of another month of tremendous change.
Transformative Pluto in your communications sector and Chiron, the Wounded Healer, located in your self-expression sector, one of the identity sectors of your solar chart along with the first, are also both activated this month, and in high degree. The presence of Chiron indicates that you are dealing with issues of where you have in the past been wounded, and where you are now in a progression of healing, so that you benefit by placing greater conscious attention to these deeper places inside you, as they come up, and as far as you can actually detect them. With Pluto's influence, you might find yourself communicating to your peers in a deeper way than you might normally choose. This again runs counter to the run-of-the-mill practice of consensus normative behavior, but it might in the end serve you better.
With the massive changes that are happening now, I highly recommend that folks get a transit report tailored specifically to their chart for the most accurate description of what's in store for you in the months ahead.
