monday december 10th-
now direct mercury in scorpio trines the north node in cancer at 7:18pm, aligning the mind and intellect with the north node of destiny and evolution. over the last week mercury has formed a Grand Water Trine with chiron and the north node- with the exact chiron/north node aspect occurring later in the month on the 23rd. major healing is possible right now- emotionally, in family dynamics, with parents, children, and more. the key is to FEEL- as we cannot heal what we cannot feel. emotional intimacy is necessary right now (a great resource is the book ‘emotional intimacy’ by robert masters). pay attention to the talks/thoughts/information incoming- as well as healers or healing connections coming into your life. they are good for you!
tuesday december 11th-
now direct mercury in scorpio quincunxes retrograde uranus in aries at 3:38am, for the 2nd time in the last 10 days- bringing wake up/shake up communications and revelations. there are big changes in the air in relationships, finances, communications and thinking!! mercury trine the north node (yesterday) brings destined or fated communications and information to Light. yet mercury/uranus could bring communications or information that is sudden, unexpected and chaos-inducing. staying open to seeing the Truth about ourselves, others and the world around us is key right now.
chiron in pisces sesquiquadrates ceres in scorpio at 1:25pm, creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. there is a strong pisces energy in home/family situations, relationships with parents and children, and in regards to our needs for safety and security. on the positive side this is great for Unconditional Love and getting into/healing old wounds from the past. the shadow side is idealizing our past/childhood/parents and not really seeing the shadow or wounds that have occurred clearly. ceres speaks to our need for safety and security and if those needs are not met we could turn to additions to sex, money or escapism in order to check out. being present with the wounding rather than being taken over by it is key.
the sun in sagittarius semisextiles pluto in capricorn at 5:26pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of transformation and evolution. sun/pluto is a great for getting focused, powerful and aligned. seeing the work that needs to be done and having the optimism (sun in sadge) and perseverance (pluto in capricorn) to do it is supported right now.
wednesday december 12th-
at 3:42pm mercury moves out of scorpio and into sagittarius, shifting the conscious mind and intellect from water to fire, yin to yang, depths to heights. mercury in sadge loves to travel, teach, learn, explore and expand! the mind wants to grow beyond it’s boundaries and limits! this is a great time for travel. just watch out for the shadow of mercury in sagittarius: thinking the grass is greener on the other side ;)
thursday december 13th-
neptune in pisces trines ceres in scorpio at 5:18pm, aligning the Higher Heart with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. neptune/ceres is the ultimate Divine Mother Love. think Princess Diana or Mother Theresa- feminine figures selfless serving those less fortunate. neptune/ceres genuinely wants to save, help and heal. the shadow of this is when we overdo that and give to those who only take, keep poor boundaries and play the victim/martyr. this could also lend itself to idealized visions of what it means to be loved- expecting others to live up to perfection which means there is a long fall of the pedestal eventually. channel this lovely energy into compassion, care and service. self-care is key too!
friday december 14th-
venus in scorpio semisextiles jupiter in sagittarius at 7:59am, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the planet of expansion and abundance. the lesser and Greater Benefics linking are great for being social, having fun and enjoying life! have some fun today!
jupiter in sagittarius semisquares retrograde eris in aries at 10:52am, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. with both bodies in fire signs we can overdo our fire right now in terms of aggression, anger, combative energy, selfishness, willfulness and reactivity. eris likes to shine a Light on the shadow- while jupiter in sadge only wants to see the Light. balance is key!
the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde eris in aries at 6:36pm, harmoniously aligning the conscious self and ego with the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. sun/eris is great for taking charge and taking action! being willing to see the Truth, speak the Truth and uncover the Truth is key! accessing the fiery energy of transformation and change is recommended.
saturday december 15th-
retrograde uranus in aries semisquares neptune in pisces at 3:11am, creating tension between the two transpersonal planets linked to the Higher Mind (uranus) and the Higher Heart (neptune). there can be difficultly finding balance between wisdom and compassion, discernment and forgiveness. neptune is eternally self-sacrificing- while uranus is brilliant but cut off from emotions. put the two together in a tense aspect and we can find ourselves deluded, deceived, escaping and checking out. both uranus and neptune want to go up and out- whereas the astrology right now needs to be balanced by going down and in. this is not a time to sign a contract or think you have it all figured out. pay attention to your dreams upon waking and your intuition- but also do the work to discern intuition from fear or fantasy. not all as is as it seems right now!
sunday december 16th-
at 6:08am the sun in sagittarius semisquares venus in scorpio, creating a minor aspect between the conscious self and ego and the Goddess of Love and Beauty. sun/venus is great for relationship and enjoyment of life. particularly because venus harmoniously linked with jupiter earlier in the week and then does so with saturn today- there are good things incoming in relationship and finances. the key is to be grateful- as that attracts even more of the goodness in life!
venus in scorpio sextiles saturn in capricorn at 6:26am, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. venus/saturn is great for getting serious and focused. committing more deeply to ourselves, partners and/or our financial abundance is supported right now. with scorpio and capricorn involved we can also get more committed to our business and financial success with awareness of the slow, steady steps we need to take to get further on that path.
mars in pisces sextiles pluto in capricorn at 10:57pm, aligning the lower will with the Higher Will in harmonious ways! this is great astrology for harnessing the lower will and having it serve something Higher. action taken with a Great Awareness can be very transformative right now. we can move mountains and make things happen with very little effort when the Higher Self is in the driver’s seat. try it! ;)
have a blessed week!
Divine Harmony is dedicated to communicating with one’s higher Self by way of the celestial realms. Just as the microcosm is contained in the macrocosm and vice-versa – Divine Harmony believes that the stars and planets have connections to the people, places and things that inhabit the earth, and there is a way to find the pattern of communication and connection by divining the stars.
BML (black moon lilith) is being included in the weekly interpretations now. the highest expression of joining these two is symbolized by the high priestess tarot card. she sits between the black and white pillars- the black being the pillar of severity and the white being the pillar of mercy. i use the mean position of BML, which in contrast to the fluctuating motion of the true position, advances steadily.
