This Wednesday, the 28th of December, is the last New Moon of the year. It will launch us into 2017 with the Sabian Symbol degree 8 Capricorn: “Birds in the House Singing Happily.” This degree encourages us to embrace music and activities that lift our Spirits. It’s more than the mere act of singing. The vibrations and tone of music have the ability to shift our perspectives and heal emotional wounds. This shift can also be used to motivate. How many of you know the lyrics to the song, “Whistle while you work?”
The planet Venus moves into creative Pisces on the 2nd to carry this artistic theme further. Movies, theater and the arts all get the nod. Another outlet for our energy will be on the 5th… when the communication planet, Mercury, backs into adventurous Sagittarius. If you didn’t get away for the holiday, now’s your chance. And, whether literal or physical, a pioneering approach to problems will help with resolutions. Oh! Speaking of resolutions… while we’re scrambling to catch up or reorganize, it’s best to start your New Years resolutions after the 8th. That’s when the mischievous Mercury retrograde will turn direct.
We could feel quite a rumble in our plans as the transit Sun catches up to transformative Pluto around the 6th. World news is apt to be more explosive around the 8th when these planets intensify the air waves. This earth sign signature joins erratic Uranus in a tense aspect that urges us to mix up our routines. It also shocks us awake when Mercury goes direct. We’re surprised by political secrets that are uncovered with the Pluto/Mars square. To get to the high road this January, transformative Pluto requires grit and faith, Mars in Pisces, in ourselves. “Transform all thoughts that deplete you” B. Peters
This act takes true Mars courage, and it can change your world for the better. Until the Full Moon – Happy New Year.
