Sedona Astrology Report
The Latest from Stillwaters Astrology - December 2013
December 2nd: New Moon in Sagittarius. The final New Moon of 2013 brings levity to the holiday season as it briefly aspects Chiron, Uranus, and Pluto in preparation for the arrival of the Winter Solstice on December 21st.
December 4th: Mercury enters Sagittarius. Mercury emerges in Sagittarius after an extended sojourn for more than two months in the depths of Scorpio following its retrograde cycle during October and November.
December 7th: Mars enters Libra. Martian energy activates the relationship sign of Libra two weeks prior to Venus turning retrograde in the final degree of Capricorn. Mars will also turn retrograde in the final 4 degrees of Libra on March 1st, 2014, so patience is essential in maintaining equilibrium and harmony in relationships beginning with the very first day of winter. Transiting Mars completes 2013 and begins 2014 with "a bang", as it closely squares the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Pluto in Capricorn from New Year’s Eve through January 2nd, 2014.
December 17th: Full Moon in Gemini and Uranus turns direct in Aries. The final Full Moon of 2013 in Gemini tests value-oriented Venus at 28-29 degrees of Capricorn just four days prior to Venus turning retrograde. Transiting Uranus in Aries will slowly move forward to join in a Grand Cardinal Cross aspect of Pluto in Capricorn, Jupiter in Cancer, and Mars in Libra during April 2014.
December 21st: Sun enters Capricorn / Winter Solstice and Venus stations retrograde. Winter arrives in the northern hemisphere as the Sun arrives in Capricorn coinciding with Venus turning retrograde in Capricorn. Venus will remain in retrograde through January 31st, 2014 when it will station direct in a close conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn.
December 24th: Mercury enters Capricorn. The arrival of the messenger planet in Capricorn directs our thoughts towards responsibilities and more practical matters after almost three weeks of holiday festivities.
