The Saturn Nessus square was exact last Thursday (from 27 degrees Scorpio to Aquarius), the day after the Grand Jury ruling not to indict for the strangulation death of Eric Garner. Since then protests have erupted around the country leading into the 6th of 7th Uranus Pluto squares (exact Dec. 15th at 12 degrees Aries to Capricorn) that we have experienced since June of 2012. Saturn rules government, control and authority. Nessus is a centaur planet representing areas of abuse, betrayal, the righting of wrongs, and dark skinned people.
Monday, December 8th: The Sun conjuncts Mercury at 16 degrees of Sagittarius - the sign ruling the legal system. Mind and will merge as clarity is gleaned in your personal awareness of why you do what you do, conscious action, discussion and planning, as well as a focus on travel, commerce, children, siblings and communications. Venus conjuncts the Galactic Center (27 degrees Sagittarius) while in sextile to Nessus heightening those areas of personal value, soul alignment, truths surrounding money and vibrational insight into your relating dynamics.
Jupiter turns retrograde today (exact at 2:15 p.m. EST) at 22 degrees of Leo where the planet of knowledge, growth, spiritual understanding, legalities and education will work to assimilate all that has been experienced since this summer. This period of internal consolidation continues through April. The Moon travels through emotionally protective Cancer (also the USA Sun Sign) heightening the desire for home, comfort and familiarity. The Moon, your personal emotive system, enters the Uranus Pluto dynamic during the lunch hour EST increasing awareness of the inherent tension between the desire for change versus the desire for the habitual.
On TUESDAY the Sun and Mercury conjunct Ceres while trining Juno (17 degrees Sagittarius to Leo) highlighting the sentient need for healing, nurturing and support. Mental gymnastics are no longer enough as you heart also seeks expression. In Leo, Juno requires the give and take energy that pursues love, play, and support through the eternal essence of honesty, innocence, and acceptance. All are making a supportive sextile to the North Node in Libra as well. Growth, insight and a flavor of "future development" is also in the air. The Moon enters Leo at 10:15 p.m. EST further enhancing the mothering energy to connect with self and others through the lens of non-judgement and personal love.
