 NeptuneCafe is a virtual astrology magazine, one of the best I've seen online. There's something of the feel of coffeehouse conversations, if all the patrons were smart and savvy  
astrophiles on espresso - the think drink. Don't miss Michael Wolfstar's weekly NewsScope column. Guest columns by well known astrologers - well, astrologers well known within the astrological community - can be quite an eye opener to people who think astrology begins and ends with Sun Signs. Who knew astrology could be popular without Sun Signs?

In the industrialized world, why is the U.S. the most violent nation?
The Scorpio Rising chart uniquely explains this tendency, especially when considering the problem as a health issue. The 6th and 12th houses are coming under increased stress. more
1. The Sun and Venus are octile on the 14th, and cast their romantic, sweet vibe into social affairs from the 7th through 21st. Generally fostering peace and harmony in personal relationships, this combination often prefers friendship over sex and intimacy since Venus is in the networking sign of Aquarius. Expression in social media is favored, along with meeting in small gatherings, and enjoying what life offers.

2. The Full Moon in Gemini on the 13th creates a busy phase with many projects unfolding simultaneously. The days leading up to this Full Moon are tinged by the Sun’s conjunction with Saturn and aspects to other outer planets, reminding us that the geopolitical situation is serious and carries numerous possible outcomes and scenarios. Multitasking is favored, as is getting involved in projects that transcend the immediate family dynamics.

3. Mercury turns retrograde on the 19th in the business sign of Capricorn. For the next three weeks (through January 8th), avoid making any important business decisions, signing important contracts or other documents. When shopping, make sure the gifts you buy have a solid return policy, and avoid items with prices that seem too good to be true. Expect some angry words on the 18th and 19th but choose your battles wisely.

4. Jupiter opposes Uranus on the 26th, an electric combination in effect from the 19th through month’s end. In itself, the Jupiter-Uranus pair encourages breaking away from tradition, but since Jupiter is also sextile Saturn, doing something different while remaining within acceptable standards may ease anxiety. Those who stick with the tried and true face rebellion and protest. Unexpected or even shocking geopolitical developments may disrupt the holiday spirit.

5. Saturn trines Uranus on the 24th, creating a supportive celestial atmosphere from the 17th through month’s end. In gatherings involving friends and/or family, the harmonious Saturn-Uranus connection welcomes the blending of generations, readily mixing the young and old. New ideas, technologies, and aspirations have an opportunity to fit in with existing structures and formats. With Mercury retrograde, make sure you check your facts.
