 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. Jupiter enters Capricorn on the 2nd, bringing an increased sense of connection to family and tradition over the coming year. Jupiter here may renew your faith in the system, add responsibilities, and encourage participation in the community, corporate, and government structures that run our lives. This passage adds momentum to conservative values sponsored by Saturn and Pluto (already in Capricorn), while favoring sincerity, reliability, and attention to duty. Beware of becoming too cautious or losing your spontaneity.

2. Mars is sextile Saturn and Pluto from the 17th through 22nd, an unusually productive phase when much can be accomplished. Mars in Scorpio can be highly efficient, single-minded, and ambitious, and these qualities can be fully expressed when favorably linked to Saturn and Pluto. This is a good time to advance with major reconstruction projects, and make progress on re-building your life in some fundamental way. Take action toward supporting the system that supports you.

3. Jupiter trines Uranus on the 15th, and is an active dynamic from the 11th to 18th. Although the times favor conservative values, this combination is ideal for advancing more progressive ideas, as long as you’re working within the system. Jupiter-Uranus in the Earth signs favors financial gains, so this is a good time to take profits and re-balance your portfolio toward a more defensive strategy. Environmental groups and their agendas may advance now, making it favorable to participate in local climate-awareness events. 

4. The Solar Eclipse on the 26th takes place at 4º Capricorn where it conjoins Jupiter, a cosmic blessing for this holiday season. This is a great time to be with family and friends, and express gratitude for their presence and support. For some, health issues may crop up since the eclipse squares Chiron. For others, divided families may become an issue (Ceres squares Juno). For most everyone, the six planets now in Capricorn offer a new beginning in finding a secure and reliable setting to help you fulfill your mission.

5. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn becomes exact on January 12, 2020, but is a palpable dynamic throughout December. In fact, this outer planet alignment is so powerful in shaping our personal and geopolitical climate that it’s been in effect for the last 3-4 years. Many people’s lives have already been dramatically morphed by this conjunction, especially concerning personal health, family developments, and professional roles. A generational shift is underway, and conservative values are on the rise. For those influenced by this powerhouse alignment, the New You is being forged and soon ready for unveiling.
