Oh My Stars

A typical horoscope lays out what you can expect for yourself in the next week or month based on your Sun Sign. That sort of thing is great, sure… especially if you happen to be the only person on your planet. Astrology, like life in general, is a lot more complicated than “there are twelve types of people, and here’s what’s going to happen to them today.”

This “horoscope” is a listing of the major planetary aspects, ingresses, and events for December 2017. Each aspect is described below, with the date the aspect is exact and a “+/-” which indicates the number of days that aspect will be most in effect. Generally, the closer to the exact date, the more pronounced the effect of the transit. And of course, as with everything else in life: your mileage may vary.

But first, a word about aspects in general. Conjunctions, squares and oppositions can all be difficult. They generate the sort of energy that can get all up in your face and is hard to ignore, but it’s hard to get much done in life without the raw energy they supply. Trines and sextiles are helpful and constructive, but it’s easy to miss out on the opportunities they provide unless you make an effort.

Dec  1     Mars opposite Uranus
(+/- 6 days) Strange tempers, strange lust, and a strange lack of control. Things flare up and go haywire.

Dec 1      Venus enters Sagittarius
Save a horse… ride a cowboy.

Dec  2     Jupiter trine Neptune
(+/- 12 days) An island of peace in an ocean of madness. “Eat, pray, love” isn’t just a book or a movie… it’s also a good idea.

Dec 3    Full Moon at 11 degrees Gemini
(Also a “Super Moon”) Werewolves! Talkative, chirpy werewolves!

Dec 3    Mercury Retrograde
Until December 23, all the usual cautions apply.

Dec  3     Sun square Neptune
(+/- 3 days) Low energies and low expectations. Feel free to sleep in.

Dec  6    Mercury conjunct Saturn
(+/- 3 days) Thoughts and words turn serious, but although the new ideas don’t come easily, they might be unusually practical.

Dec  6    Mercury sextile Mars
(+/- 3 days) You’re in a hurry to communicate your ideas… maybe you should put a little thought into it to get maximum effect.

Dec  6     Mars sextile Saturn
(+/- 10 days) An outstanding time for plowing though your backlog of work, overcome some obstacles, or just clearing things off your desk so you can slack off closer to the holidays.

Dec 9        Mars enters Scorpio
Scorpios should be approached with caution. Like, even more than usual.

Dec 10     Mercury trine Uranus
(+/- 3 days) Express yourself in new and unusual ways.

Dec 10     Venus square Neptune
(+/- 4 days) Big enthusiastic affections and expressions — but how practical are they, really?

Dec 12     Sun conjunct Mercury
(+/- 3 days) You may be having powerful thoughts and ideas, but they may prove difficult to express properly.

Dec 15     Mercury conjunct Venus
(+/- 3 days) Creative thoughts and ideas flow more easily now.

Dec 16     Sun trine Uranus
(+/- 4 days) It’s good to be an individual and to express it your own way. Be yourself — no one else has the clothes for it.

Dec 18    New Moon at 26 degrees Sagittarius
A good time to do your affirmations and set goals for the coming month.

Dec 19   Saturn enters Capricorn
(More on that closer to that date… believe me)

Dec 20   Venus trine Uranus
(+/- 5 days) Try something new and different… you might like it!

Dec 21   Sun enters Capricorn, conjunct Saturn
(+/- 3 days) A low-energy drag, but one that responds well to a serious approach.

Dec 24      Venus enters Capricorn
Love is an adventure… and a blue-chip investment.

Dec 25    Venus conjunct Saturn
(+/- 4 days) Not the most fun of aspects, but is excellent for combining caring thoughts and deeds with practical application.

Dec 28    Mars trine Neptune
(+/- 6 days) …everything looks rosy and bright and people seem a little more charming than usual. Have things genuinely gotten that much better, or is it a trick of the light?
