Aquarius Horoscope for December 2013

Posted on November 29, 2013 by Henry Seltzer of ASTROGRAPH.COM

This is a time of terrific outer world presence and performance, Aquarius, with yet a distinct pull to the inside. In the midst of a fundamentally future-oriented month, with a powerful focus on being visible out in the world, you have the overtones of deep internal process to consider, as you make your way forward. Your plans are brilliant and will serve to align you with important direction long-term. There could also be old patterns of behavior that you have grown increasingly conscious of over these past few months and that could in some way be coming to a head. If so, simply witnessing and quietly observing your reactions takes you a very long way. Since your life consists of both sides now, it benefits you when each is equally honored.

As an overview for the entire month, it is vital to be aware that you are likely going through an important realignment in the course of it. Your ruler, Uranus, is stationing to direct motion mid-December, so that the aspects that it makes to other planetary archetypes become extremely heightened, including those to Pluto and to Chiron, the Wounded Healer. A long-running aspect there brings issues of internal wounding to the fore, perhaps drawing your attention to places inside you that may have been walled-off from the time of early childhood. If so, it is actually of huge value for you to simply acknowledge these hidden places. As they say, the journey of one thousand miles is off a great start with that one first step.

With outer world affairs also pressing, it is interesting to note that your co-ruler, Saturn, is also activated this month in your career sector. The grand trine that Saturn makes with Jupiter and the Moon at the First Quarter Moon is a highlight, but all month long there is extra attention on this position. Saturn at the top of the chart is known to herald a period of relative fame and prominence for worldly concerns. With the Jupiter aspect you are looking forward, and also with the December 2nd New Moon as well, taking place this month in your sector of goals and societal orientation. Careful attention to both inner and outer concerns pays extremely rich dividends as this climactic month unfolds. Although they seem to have little to do with one another, these twin motivations are actually inseparable as each underlies and forms the foundation for the other.

Regarding inner work, not only is Chiron, the Wounded Healer, activated in your sector of values and resources, but Pluto is also closely aspecting Chiron as Pluto's square aspect to Uranus continues as a powerful presence in your solar chart. This represents, as the mythology implies, a journey to the underworld of the unconscious, there to determine more poignantly your true desires and how to actualize them. This Pluto symbolism is particularly appropriate for you amongst all the signs, since he resides in your sector of dream imagination, the doorway to unconscious process.
Uranus, ruler of your sign, resides in a sector of your solar chart involved with learning and communication, areas that are vital for you now. Sharing your thoughts with others can help to make these more concretely available to navigating your own path, while the learning and growth implicit in what you are dealing with, on all these different levels, constitute a most important cargo to carry forward as the year comes into its transition toward 2014. Next spring, the square with Pluto continues to accelerate, reaching for a new crescendo on April 21st, and you find yourself in a continuation of radically transforming not only your attitude toward your inner world, but also your very sense of identity in this one. This is obviously an extremely powerful time for you, when it helps to be paying the most careful attention to each step of your process.
