It's "Time"

Planetary energies slow, station, and turn direct and symbolize a process unique to each individual. Mercury, gathering speed from its recent retrograde motion, turned direct at 3 degrees Sagittarius last Tuesday, signifying a time to pause and assimilate information that was on hold, skewed, and not communicated or received. Uranus is now moving in direct motion and Jupiter will follow on the 25th, providing the sensation of popping through limiting situations.

Venus is making a number of aspects this week as she moves into Aquarius on the 20th. Feelings of limitation—financial or romantic—may be felt on the 18th when the lover of beauty squares Saturn, the planet of restriction. Pay close attention to any “not enough” feelings that arise. The Sun will help to resolve and mediate on Monday when he sextiles Saturn in a problem-solving stance of awareness.

As Venus slides into Aquarius on Tuesday she contacts Jupiter—where we seek release and comfort. She hugs Uranus on Wednesday, initiating a time for innovation in love and money. The Sun moves into Capricorn on the 22nd preparing the way for the powerful New Moon on the 24th.

ARIES: Friendships, goals, camaraderie, and merry making are in the mix for you this holiday season. Enjoy the uplifting social energy as you prepare for another round of recreating “self.” The Sun's move into your 10th house of work and reputation suggests a four-week period of recognition and career acknowledgment. Long-range educational, publishing, and international planning begins to take shape.

TAURUS: As Venus occupies your public acclaims house she reaches out to Jupiter, which is currently transiting your sign and providing inspiration and faith. Loving what you do always heightens your ability to achieve. Be the model of abundance and congruency for others by showing how we are meant to be inspired in our work and our world. Intuitive insights are yours this week and help you see the way to your life’s work.

GEMINI: Your mind is in formulation mode, preparing you to work with others in a deeper, refined, and more congruent manner. The pieces of awareness and creativity are falling into place. You are working through inner levels of awareness and partnership as the Sun shifts into the psychologically driven 8th house. Venus encourages your travel, writing, and teaching activities.

CANCER: As Venus in your 7th house squares up to Saturn in your 4th house of family a deadlock and tension is present in your family relationships. Answers and movement will find you when the Sun contacts Saturn and will provide problem-solving insights and the way forward. The Sun then shifts into Capricorn and your 7th house of relating for the next four weeks, highlighting the others in your world. Venus encourages you to go deeper with others and to expect gracious offerings of inner comforts and financial well-being.

LEO: All exchanges and partnerships benefit when Venus shifts into your 7th house of relating. Good things come from the others in your world. The day-to- day schedule gets busier as your solar ruler increases your daily to-do lists and work affairs. Creative ventures, situations with children, and romance begin sputtering forward with Mercury's direct movement.

VIRGO: Decisions and the holding pattern you've been in since last month begin to make sense with Mercury's direct movement in the area ruling home, parents, housing, and emotional well-being. More pleasure and love are coming your way with the Sun's annual movement into your 5th house. Venus ensures an easy flow to your work schedule and health routines.

LIBRA: The feeling of limitation you feel this weekend is not new for you, Libra. It highlights yet another area to be responsibly addressed surrounding issues with family, love, or money. Venus shifts into your 5th house of pleasure and love on the 20th. Expect a fun and playful holiday season as the Sun makes its annual shift into your personal house of family, home, nesting, and privacy.

SCORPIO: The money and what is really of value situation that has been messing with your planning is straightening out now. A breakthrough is due as Venus makes contact with two planets signifying money and value. You are entering a strong period for contracts and negotiations. Hold onto your intention of high esteem and abundance, knowing that what you dream and believe is manifesting externally.

SAGITTARIUS: Confusion and the internalizing of thoughts and communications have started to become unstuck as Mercury inches forward in your sign. Venus is helping the communicative process as she moves into your 3rd house of messaging, calls, and letters on the 21st. There is a lot of love to be found in your everyday environment with siblings and in the community. Money and the stuff that you own is a focus now as the Sun shifts into your 2nd house.

CAPRICORN: The clouds are parting and, yes, there is some sunshine on the horizon as the Sun enters your sign on the 22nd. You are pulled up and out to rejoin the external events of the season. Venus bodes well for money-making ventures and employment possibilities and sets off a season of increasing hope and well-being. The hesitation you feel will be replaced by an increasing sense of self-confidence and clarity.

AQUARIUS: You are finishing up your solar year in preparation for your birthday as the Sun enters your 12th house of rest and rejuvenation. Allow your schedule to lighten. Venus is picking up the pace and bringing with her warmth, pleasure, and a high level of personal comfort as she slips into your sign on the 20th. As she sextiles Uranus in your 4th house of the soul and emotions, the stage is set for a wonderful holiday season.

PISCES: Pressures ease and work a day madness abates as the Sun shifts into your social 11th house, upping the ante with your groups and comrades.

The Sun's sextile to your ruler Neptune offers up healing help and a softer daily pace.

We have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happening on the 10th at 18 degrees Gemini. It’s always a wise rule of thumb to wait a week after the Eclipse before making major decisions. Mercury is in its final week of retrograde, which provides an even stronger need to hold off on final commitments, large expenditures, and long-term planning until after the 14th.

Uranus moves direct at 0 degrees of Aries on the 10th, where it has been in retrograde since July 9th. Forward movement will reengage in areas that are in need of dynamic movement and personal revolution. The Occupy Movement will pick up steam in preparation for major breakthroughs this spring, which will affect change in law making in the financial and political realms - especially in the mortgage area.

ARIES: The next stage of rebirth is upon you. Needed change, desired change, and surprising change is once again cued up to move you along in your personal development and identity. Communication changes, culminations, and project completions arrive at the Lunar Eclipse and over the next several weeks. Give yourself time and space to adjust and release obsolete patterns of relating within your relationships and in your community.

TAURUS: Another level of progression on the inner planes of spirituality, dream work, getting “real” about your family’s imprint on your psyche, and the development of your intuition arrives with Uranus stationing into direct motion. Some divinely guided inspiration is headed your way. Financial avenues and income may be finishing up and changing over the next few weeks. A level of completion has arrived regarding your skills and development.

GEMINI: Areas of a very personal nature are winding down and moving towards culmination at the Lunar Eclipse. Don’t rush this process. Business agreements, client activity, and relationships dynamics are still in the percolating mode as Mercury prepares to turn stationary direct in your seventh house. This is a time to be aware and pay attention but to hold off on definitive activity until the 3rd week in December when the dust settles.

CANCER: Career change, innovations, and, yes, areas of ”revolution” needed in your life direction and avocation will start picking up speed as Uranus moves direct on the 10th. The next level of creative development is upon you in areas of reputation and public life. Secrets and things hidden below the surface of conscious mind are highlighted at the Lunar Eclipse. Work and daily scheduling returns to the semblance of normalcy over the next few weeks.

LEO: Confusion and mixed message begin to abate in your creative projects, with your children, and in affairs of the heart. Let the information float to the surface before making final decisions. An acquaintance or friendship may be developed further or completed at the Lunar Eclipse. Social relationships are changing and culminating. Uranus starts igniting your need for adventure (again) and travel plans. A brilliant time for publishing, teaching, higher education, and international moves and contacts.

VIRGO: You are finishing up a career directive and reaching for understanding and revisions in your life path. Mercury’s forward movement on the 13th will help clarify your needs. Be clear as to your emotional intent. Wait things out and let the fog dissipate—the way forward will be revealed over the ensuing weeks. Changes in financial arrangements and your “psychology” shape shift and surprise you with Uranus moving forward on the 10th.

LIBRA: Avoid major decision making regarding publishing, teaching, and international contacts until after the 3rd week – you don’t have the clarity of vision to make educated plans. Your communication devices and daily activities begin to normalize after the 13th. Partnerships and your relating style begin the next leg of development with Uranus moving forward in your relationship house. Innovative solutions and developments occur with the others populating your world—relationships, clients, and the public.

SCORPIO: Finances and intimacy are highlighted at the Lunar Eclipse. Awareness and eureka moments provide much needed information, insights, and culminations. The awakener moves into direct motion and encourages cutting-edge techniques in the work place and application of your special brand of genius. Avenues of earnings and clarity around your self worth and talents become more clear and definable.

SAGITTARIUS: The ability to draw stable conclusions, make personal decisions, and move things along will engage as Mercury turns stationary direct in your sign on the 13th. Uranus signifies creative breakthroughs and desired changes regarding children, romance, and labors of love—the more authentic, the better. The Lunar Eclipse spotlights relationship culminations, decisions, awareness, and developments regarding significant others, clients, and the public.

CAPRICORN: The changes you have pondered over the past few months will now become realistically doable as Uranus moves forward in your house of personal life. Home, changes in living arrangements, and moves are now supported bringing fresh perspectives and exciting developments. Mercury shifts forward in the house of spirit and your subconscious and those hazy messages will gain clarity and insight. The Lunar Eclipse opens up avenues of awareness and release regarding your health, work situation, and mind/body connectedness.

AQUARIUS: Your ruler is awakening after a five-month slumber, suggesting that you are awakening too. Concepts, ponderings, and communications of all types will benefit from the revolutionary energy of Uranus. Creative problem solving and genius insights are heading your way, clearing the path of confusion and ambiguity. Mercury aids this effort when he turns direct in your friendship and networking house and helps to clear up misunderstandings between friends and associates. The Lunar Eclipse highlights hidden areas around romantic affairs, your children, pregnancies, and creative projects.

PISCES: Mercury’s retrograde has tangled and confused professional activities and communications. His forward movement on the 13th will help to detangle vocational problems and misunderstandings. Uranus moves forward and shoots your goals forward in earned income and professional development. The green light turns on for those seeking employment and using their talents in new and authentic ways. The Lunar Eclipse suggests changes in the home, with parents, and in living arrangements. Some will be moving, selling, repairing, and seeking therapy.

Expansive understanding and avenues for combining the real with the ideal are possible as Jupiter reaches out to Chiron in sextile at the cusps of Taurus and Pisces. The energy ruling education, expansion, and faith makes contact with the compassionate teacher and healer.

In addition, the Sun and Mercury bump up against assertive Mars, suggesting tension around our communication and identity. Thinking about how you handle anger and what you bring to the table of conflict can be useful over the weekend. Both retrograde Mercury and the Sun are transiting through Sagittarius—the sign that symbolizes religious beliefs and ideology. This may be a time to review our personal stakes (supposed and real) in any conflict or debate that arises.

ARIES: Events, feelings, and imprints from your past are brought to light in the form of your personal values, talents, and gifts that you often take for granted. Awareness unfolds, planting seeds for development through the first half of 2012. Your abilities and earning possibilities are due for some much-needed growth. Professional development may be part of the picture.

TAURUS: Softening and “flow” occur within your friendships and networks, which can flower into fresh directions and personal goals. Restoration and renewal are born from ancient wounds and social discomforts, which begin to dissolve in the light of day. Clemency is the gift we give ourselves when grace is present.

GEMINI: A solidifying effect comes to pass between your life direction and your sense of inner knowing and perhaps even longing. You will understand on a deep level that you are on course and on track. Trust that any blockages or “do not enter” messages concerning your career are there for a reason. Make the shift you know you need to make.

CANCER: You are in the process of blending ideals with personal goals. This allows you to apply wisdom to your like-minded groups and team activities. Soothing messages, travel, writing projects, and connections flow and deepen an inner healing and desire for graceful expression.

LEO: Your reputation and life journey are well blended with your psychological landscape. You are buoyed by events this week, confirming that your instincts and trusting nature were indeed well founded. Your heart is opening. Trust that it knows the way forward.

VIRGO: Vulnerability can hold strength. You grow to understand that real power is located inherently within. This week you give your knowledge to others in your world, offering words and tools of support, which in turn lift you to another level of self-development.

LIBRA: Your psychology is deepened through your contact with and commitment to health, healing, and being of service. You may be the recipient or giver of compassionate understanding and support. Embrace the continued process of healing integration.

SCORPIO: Relationships reach a deeper and more honest level of exchange. Help is available to you through others in your life. Awareness about your children’s motives and wounds are brought to light and discussed with an individual who can be of service. Sharing your vulnerabilities with a trusted source is encouraged.

SAGITTARIUS: Uncomfortable and sensitive situations at home or with your parents are supported by practical solutions. Routines and habits need to shift to allow for a smoother flow and schedule. This is a good week to explore health solutions and further develop your service offerings.

CAPRICORN: Matters of the heart are supported by partnerships and counselors. Wise words are offered, deepening your sense of wellbeing and self-esteem. Your creative projects are acknowledged and solidified.

AQUARIUS: Your home and inner being are flowing with your compassionate self-esteem. The talents you offer to others are highlighted with the light of growing awareness. Solidification is occurring at your very core, planting the seeds of evolution.

PISCES: Understanding is dawning, tying the cognitive cord between your vulnerability as a human being with the manner in which you communicate. Some wrongs can be righted but ask you to make the connection between strength and vulnerability in yourself and in others.
