Astrology News by James Jarvis, Nov. 30, 2009

Uranus, retrograde since 6/30, goes direct this month 12/1 at 22 degrees Pisces helping us shift from separation consciousness into unity consciousness. Now that it is no longer necessary to depend on external religion to "bind us to God", (the true meaning of religion), a new freedom of Spirit is being released on the planet.

With Venus in Sagittarius 12/1-12-24, the focus is on sharing your joy and enthusiasm ("en theo" or "in God") with others. What really counts with Venus in Sagittarius is our ability to share our presence; our love, energy and receptivity with others.

The full moon at 10 degrees Gemini on 12/2 (12:31 a.m.) challenges you to expand your personal network so you can grow intellectually. Maybe it's time to take a class, broaden your knowledge base, or just get together with friends for stimulating conversation.

Mercury in Capricorn 12/05-2/10, helps manage and structure the contents of your mind so you can make detailed plans. Ground all of the details you're tracking in your mind by making master lists of what you want to accomplish and then prioritize the goals on your lists.

Jupiter at the same degree of Aquarius as Neptune from 12/14-12/27 is the perfect time to focus on your ideal vision. Jupiter/Neptune aspects heighten idealism and vision so you can utilize their expansive energy for gaining clarity of what your highest mission is.

With the new Moon in Sagittarius at 24 degrees on 12/16 (5:02 am,) the focus is on embracing your spiritual quest. Moving beyond the love of spiritual knowledge (books, classes, workshops), the Moon in Sagittarius invites you to deepen your experience through witnessing the presence of spirit in your life.

The challenge with Saturn retrograde at 8 degrees Virgo, 12/19/07-5/2/08 (5:51 a.m.), is learning how to focus your attention (Virgo) on manifesting goals without an attachment to perfection (Saturn). The goal is to streamline your life so you can focus on what's most important.

Mars goes retrograde 12/20 at 19 degrees Leo, helping you shift your focus from doing to being. Letting go of attachments to doing will enable you to observe whether you are using your energy in a self-willed or wisdom-guided manner. By reflecting on how you use your Mars energy during the retrograde period you will learn how to do less by "going with the flow."

The Sun enters Capricorn 12/21 at 10:47 a.m. marking the Winter solstice. The Capricorn principle demonstrates how self-reliance and consolidation of power and authority lead to mastery. Our job during Capricorn is to demonstrate mastery of accomplishment and right use of power and authority.

Venus, the planet representing core values, travels through Capricorn 12/25-1/17 helping you be more pragmatic or realistic about what you can accomplish. One way to do this is to view your spending habits and see if you are "putting your money where your heart is."

The full Moon at 10 degrees Cancer 12/31 (12:14 p.m.) helps you discover your needs for nurturing and comfort. Most of us are better at nurturing other people than ourselves. This month the focus is on "nurturing the nurturer." What is it that you need for yourself? Is it ok to have others nurture you for a change?
