On DECEMBER we have the following main configurations: 

Uranus in Aries is stationary so it will bring sudden and intense changes and the effects are really concrete. Uranus forms a good trine with Saturn in Sagittarius and a problematic opposition with Jupiter in Libra. Uranus and Saturn combination brings changes made after a long thinking and based on a strategy.

Uranus and Jupiter combination brings urgent need for freedom, revolution, and big change, anyway sudden events will occur: accidents, explosions, natural disasters, revolution, riots, and high scale scandals and restless on financial markets.

You will see a lot of sudden events that will involve a lot of people and everything will be very hard to control or predict. Do not forget that any situation that looks problematic, actually should become an opportunity, especially for those who are able to work with this kind of environment.

PERSONAL PLANETS IN RETROGRADE MOTION during this month: Mercury is in Sagittarius until on 2nd of December, you are searching for knowledge, information, and all kind of news that help you to express your freedom. It is time to say what you think, but in a structured way.

Mercury retrograde invites you to communicate clear and simple, no matter you speak, write, negotiate, debate, exchange ideas. If your communication tools (computer, mobile, tablets, cars) are in trouble you should fix them in a serious manner and it is better to avoid in these periods to buy new ones. Important negotiations and transactions it is better to postpone for direct periods of Mercury. If you have no choice and you must sign an important contract you should read very carefully all documents.

This retrograde motion is important for signs that are governed by Mercury – Gemini and Virgo natives and for the signs where the planet goes retrograde (Capricorn and Sagittarius). Here you have the complete cycle:

2 – 19 December – Mercury in Capricorn in direct motion:

19 December – Mercury ingress in retrograde station

21 December – Mercury ingress in retrograde motion

5 January 2017 – Mercury ingress in retrograde motion in Sagittarius

8 January 2017 – Mercury ingress in direct station in Sagittarius

10 January 2017 – Mercury in Sagittarius in direct motion

12 January 2017 – Mercury ingress in Capricorn

7 February 2017  – Mercury ingress in Aquarius

Do not forget the following meanings:

Direct moving – the best moment for action, the energy of the planet is good;

Retrograde station – not good, do not start any important action in this period;

Retrograde moving – do not act, try to relax and observe the reality, it is better to (re)think your actions and your strategies;

Second station, before direct period – the events is going in good direction;

Mercury is in Capricorn during retrograde motion: Pay more attention in your communication, think twice before open your mouth. Now, for you it is the most important your credibility and authority in professional activity. Check, calculate, search and build your destiny.

On 21st December, the SUN ingress in CAPRICORN: Happy Birthday for all natives!

*) If you do not know yet your Ascendant you may find it very easy by using any other free astrology website or software that you can find on internet. For this calculation you need: day, month, year, location, hour and minutes of your birth. If you have possibility try to use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history.

Important note: In all my astrological research and interpretations I use the Whole signs (house system) because it is the oldest house system (used by ancient Greek astrologers) who has proven its real value during history. When I am writing about aspects between planets, I use aspect from sign to sign; I am using a traditional way of interpretation of aspects. An aspect is not a must to be at perfect orb to have an effect. It is enough if we have a planet in a sign that forms an aspect with another planet from another sign. The most powerful aspects are: conjunctions, oppositions, squares and trines.
