Astrological Musings & More

12-12-12A very interesting numerological event happens tomorrow that won’t happen again for another one hundred years.  The date will be 12/12/12.  For some that adds to a 9, the meaning of which is spiritual but also the ending of a cycle.  Many are claiming that this is the portal opening to the events of December 21st. Possibly.  Who am I to say for sure?

When looking at a date from a numerological viewpoint though, one includes the whole date:
12/12/2012 and that, my friends gives us an 11.  Some would say it’s a 2, but many numerologists recognize that when some double digit numbers appear, you take them for what they are.

An 11 is considered a master number and it is a number of revelation, idealism and intuition.  Some have called this the number of the Magician.  Some say it is 9 on a higher plane and some even call it the number of the God-Force.  There is much responsibility to mankind connected with this number.  The keyword for this number is “INSPIRATION”.

What’s even more interesting to me is how we arrive at this number.  The month (12) is a 3, making it a number of self-expression, inner peace, surrounded by beauty in a harmonious atmosphere.  It is social, outgoing and creative.  It’s keyword is “PLEASANT”.  This number is repeated – perhaps for emphasis – by the day (12).  So, we are basically being given the opportunity to invoke and evoke all that is pleasant into our lives.  This is followed by the year (2012) which is a 5.  The energies of this number are of frequent change in all aspects of life.  This is the path of freedom, curiosity, adventure, unattachment, and progress. This number’s keyword is “FREEDOM”.  Add them together and we are offered the path of “inspiration”, the magician, the God-Force with which to heal ourselves, each other and the planet.  Pretty awesome, huh?

Old Moon - New MoonThen on Thursday, December 13th at 3:42 a.m. EST, the New Moon occurs in the sign of Sagittarius.  This is a chance to expand on this new beginning, new opportunity, being offered by the previous day.

Moon in Sagittarius allows us to envision seemingly impossible projects and then, despite what others might say, go on to achieve their completion.  That’s because of the optimistic influence of Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius.  (With both the Sun and Moon in this sign, energies are filled to the max with optimism!)

The only down-side to this is being overly optimistic to the point of carelessness.   So keep that optimism flowing but throw in a dash of practicality and awareness just for good measure.

These are the energies that will allow you to not only believe in the infinite possibilities of life but act on them as well.  Enjoy!

Uranus in AriesUranus, which has been retrograde since mid-July, will now turn direct in the sign of Aries on Thursday, December 13th at 7:02 a.m. EST.

Uranus in Aries is about blazing new trails, being courageous, daring, resourceful, and being free to act in your own way.  These are the positive traits of the energy of this combination.

Uranus in Aries does have its pitfalls though and they include being too impulsive and having an erratic temper.

This is a time when the spirit of adventure is strong but constant new experiences are needed to remain happy.  Adding this to the energy of the New Moon in Sagittarius, it opens the way for new and wondrous opportunities to become reality for each of us!

Geminids - NorthThe Geminids meteor shower has actually been happening since December 6th, but peaks on December 13th-14th with 50-80 meteors per hour being visible.  The name is derived from the fact that the meteor shower seems to radiant from the constellation of Gemini.  The last of the shower can be seen on December 18th with about one meteor per hour being seem.  Go out and watch the show!!!

Venus in SagittariusVenus goes into Sagittarius on Saturday December 15th at 11:38 p.m. EST. causing love to be like a shooting star…brilliant but impermanent.

This combination can cause people to seem cold and fickle in love.  Part of this is because the energies are high-spirited with a love of freedom.  This, however, is not so true for friendship where loyalty and affection are high.

Emotional satisfaction may be found in travel or sports.  There is also great satisfaction in bright colors and lavish décor.  (At this time of the year, decorating can bring great satisfaction.)

Conversations with friends and family can be quite enjoyable when they contain philosophy, spirituality, or the arts.

12-12-12A very special Winter Solstice happens as the Sun moves in the sign of Capricorn on Friday, December 21st at 6:12 a.m. EST.

Being ruled by Saturn, and being the longest night of the year, one can have a tendency to slip into melancholy and feel as if a lead weight has been tied to their soul.  That’s the time when we need to remind ourselves that the Sun is being reborn this night and the days will grow longer and warmer.

This year especially, we need to focus on the positive in our lives as this event takes place.  Recognize all that we have to be grateful for and turn our eyes, minds and hearts to the rising of a new day, like none that has been experienced for millennia.  A new beginning, if we choose to make it one for ourselves.

Along with its practicality, Capricorn energies are reliable, ambitious, and persistent.  These are good tools to have now.

With the Sun now in Capricorn and the Moon in Aries on the 21st, it doubles down on the energy of ambition and adds determination, extreme independence and self-assertion.  Woo hoo!  These are energies to build something great with!  Whatever you’ve been wanting to do in/with your life, the energies are lining up for you!
