The month of December, full of decorations, decibels and all round decadence or declarations, deceit and all round decline? Perhaps half and half, as like a used Christmas cracker or turkey wish bone; it seems this December is split in two!
For appropriately December begins the season of good will in the jovial Sign of Sagittarius, as the first half of the month sees Planets situated in this pleasure-seeking Sign. As many revel in festivity build-up, focussing everyday energy into preparations. However, it is all well and good getting involved, but the expansive Sign of Sagittarius does not always know when to stop. So with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all residing in Sagittarius, over-doing it is probable. From over-exertion, as a burn-out of your Sun’s energy occurs to mercurial nervous over-exhaustion or just plain over-indulgence, as extravagant Venus and Sagittarius combine.
Furthermore, this over-emphasis of Sagittarian Planets surpasses individual boundaries, always looking to broaden its horizons both cerebrally and physically, as remember it knows no limits. This seeming quite literal, as debate between the UK and Europe heightens concerning deficit recovery, foreign aid and immigration. With the latter issue continuing to be something of a big fish in the UK’s small pond, as it struggles to deal with net levels. While, reflected on the other side of the pond, this also remains a hot topic, the President’s use of executive action in this area rippling through the U.S. Senate. However, the 6th’s opposing Full Moon in Gemini should bring some unexpected permanency as it impacts on the United State’s and Cuba’s sense of identity and highlights events in New York. While, within Europe the people of Rome and the Vatican City are positively affected, as is France, appearing to secure its future direction, among the young particularly. Similarly, Australian daily life sees alterations arising from the Full Moon’s activities.
However, the revealing Gemini Full Moon may also unveil areas of exaggeration, over-enthusiasm or plain, old-fashioned fibs, as it challenges Sagittarian Planets. Therefore, the Sagittarian ruled areas of Religion, Education, Journalism and Higher Justice may feel predominantly targeted. As well as all foreign and cultural affairs, from incoming benefit claimants and overseas terror threats to tourism and modes of travelling, as Sagittarius governs journeys of mind and body. While, a further blow is dealt by illusive Neptune in Pisces at a critical degree until the 11th, as it forges a challenging angle.

So this month as some assemble tables for lavish spreads with all the trimmings, others assemble for around the table peace talks, discussions on the epidemic spread and ways of making financial trimmings. With new legislations for foreign welfare benefits and restructuring the NHS highlighted in the UK. Although, conflicting Mutable planetary configurations make reaching a consensus seem a distant dream, when it is difficult to pin down the true facts.
However, like a Christmas pantomime, come December’s second half, distant horizons are something of a distant memory. As that Sagittarian flying carpet is grounded with a jolt, as Planets are ‘Aladd-in-to’ the down-to-earth Sign of serious Capricorn. For the second half of December sees the Sun, Mercury and Venus joining Pluto at Capricorn’s residence. Although, some may be forgiven for thinking they have arrived at Ebenezer Scrooge’s, as any delights seem to have been cleared away. For sensible Capricorn requires only what is necessary. However, on the plus side, you could say Capricorn’s arrival comes just in the nick or perhaps ‘St Nick’ of time, with Christmas upon us. As Xmas lists are replaced by reality checklists, as Capricorn curbs previous Sagittarian excesses. So any over-spending, over-indulging or over-estimating in general is now realised, not only for the individual, but also concerning governments and institutions. For Capricorn is associated with the structures and establishments of society.
As well as those who are established in years. So, as winter comes around, practical Capricorn ensures those who are elderly and vulnerable are not overlooked. This action activated by Mars, still in Capricorn as December opened, its negative effect creating anger and unpredictably, by its harsh aspect to Uranus. However, now additional Capricorn Planets continue what Mars initiated. As the optimistic aspects of the Sun and Venus to Mercury and Pluto imply beneficial changes for the older generation, from legislative alterations to monetary bonuses, such as winter fuel payments.
For under the influence of Mutable Signs expect discussion and ideas, but implementation comes with Cardinal Signs. With Pluto remaining in Capricorn placing past unresolved issues on the table too, concerning public funds, hands may be forced to minimize golden handshake/pensions, as the North Node creates conflict. This month, Fixed Signs bring further unsettled concerns, due to continuing clashes between Jupiter and Saturn, accentuated by Mars entering Aquarius from the 5th and opposing Jupiter in Leo retrograding from the 9th. These dynamics thrusting previous troubles into the limelight concerning the young, causing wide-scale rebellions over rights and equality; uncovering more sexual exploits, noticeably around computer technology and spurring the uncontrollability of the Ebola virus.
If that was not enough, anticipate sudden, over-whelming universal events nearing the 22nd, as unpredictable Uranus turns direct, coupled with a Capricorn, critical degree New Moon. This having a significant effect on U.S. finances, North Korea’s shared resources and a revelatory one regarding the UK’s condition. As well as impacting on the direction of the United Nations and substantially on everyday Palestine. While, Columbia, Tanzania, Kenya, Brunei, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan and the ongoing situation relating to Russia and Ukraine are also spotlighted. Iran and New Zealand experience detrimental shockwaves, along with unexpected violence in Guatemala. Although, positively, the New Moon signifies new beginnings, as does the 24th, when for this year Saturn in Scorpio ‘is behind you’ in ‘Panto’ style and the gas giant arrives. In the form of Saturn in Sagittarius, as expansive giant, Jupiter teams up with restrictive Saturn, chanting December’s yuletide mixed message, both ho, ho, ho and no, no, no!
