On DECEMBER, we have the following main configurations:
This month is very dynamic but in the same time it’s better to postpone major decisions and changes until after December 23, 2017. Sun and Venus in Sagittarius give extra optimism, positive relationships.
The most significant event of December 2017 is Saturn’s entry in Capricorn on 20, where it will stay until 2020.
RETROGRADE PLANETS this month are MERCURY and URANUS.
On December 21st, the SUN ingress in CAPRICORN: Happy Birthday for all natives!
It is winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where it is the shortest day of the year.
In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the summer solstice and the longest day of the year.
MOON PHASES (New York time, USA):
FULL MOON in GEMENI on December 3rd at 10:46:
It is time to test your discernment and calls you into a deeper level of truth and wisdom. Neptune in Pisces closely squares the Gemini Moon and Sagittarius Sun, potentially stirring up confusion and distraction. Are you following your own truth, or are you overly influenced by the media’s (or another person’s) version of truth? The solution for this is to quiet your minds and tune into the subtler levels of reality, especially your feelings. And the Sagittarius Sun can invalidate feelings that don’t align with certain belief systems or moral judgments. This is an optimal Full Moon for leaning into divinatory practices (Tarot cards, I Ching or astrology) and for paying attention to dream messages. Mercury is retrograde, ruler of Gemini invites you to slow down and turn attention inward. Retrograde Mercury’s involvement in this square brings awareness to wounds of perception — the beliefs that keep you stuck in old pain and now need to be rewritten. The Full Moon conjoins the potent fixed star Aldebaran (at 9° Gemini), the brightest star in the constellation Taurus. Located in the eye of the Bull, Aldebaran is known as the Eye of Revelation or the Star of Illumination; it is associated with the third eye — our inner, intuitive sight. The activation of Aldebaran points to the higher potential of this Full Moon. If you can quiet your minds and cut through illusion and distraction, you can access your divine mind and open to a new level of wisdom and illumination.
NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS on December 18th at 01:30: The Sagittarius New Moon invites you to plant a seed for an expansive and empowering new vision, and to renew your trust and optimism. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Sagittarius season is when the Sun’s light is at its weakest, leading into the winter solstice (December 21), the longest night of the year. Retrograde Mercury recommends turning attention inward and sitting quietly in meditation to access the higher frequencies of this lunation and deepen into cosmic wisdom. Venus is also in Sagittarius, conjunct the New Moon and heading toward the GC, inspiring a reimagining of the feminine in the collective consciousness. During Saturn’s tour through Sagittarius, since December 2014, you’ve been forging a new vision for the future, clarifying our truth, and clearing out beliefs that keep you stuck in self-limiting realities. Saturn in earthy Capricorn will be a time for crystallizing your Sagittarian visions into form. This New Moon presents a last-chance opportunity to surrender the beliefs that block your expansion and to identify and empower the visions you want to bring into physical reality.
Until 11th of January 2018 MERCURY is transiting SAGITTARIUS including a retrograde period. The complete retrograde cycle looks like this:

JUPITER transits SCORPIO until 8th of November 2018: Secrets and all kind of occult scandals will come out, so you will not have a boring period, it will be a big ShowTime, especially in politics, secret services, love and sex relationships. Scorpio relates to taxes, banking, and shared resources; consequently, costs may rise. Keeping an eye on our savings and our debts may be paramount to protecting our future interests. Power dynamics may also be more visible during this transit, with some people perhaps wanting to create large displays of their power and influence. The most challenging manifestation of this transit can be fears that tend to multiply. In the darkness, shadows loom larger than life beneath Jupiter’s magnifying influence. Positively expressed, wise Jupiter seeks to understand the complexes that lie in the deepest reaches of the psyche. He knows that great treasures are buried in these mysterious catacombs.
SATURN will occupy the sign of CAPRICORN from December 19, 2017, to March 21, 2020; and then finishes up its transit from July 1 to December 17, 2020: Saturn is dignified and functioning well. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those of Your career choices that don’t accurately reflect Your authentic selves. Capricorn and Saturn want respect and Saturn in Capricorn will work hard to earn it. Conservation is a big theme now. Taking the easy road is not favored during this transit. Rewards come from putting in the effort. You might also be striving for more authority in an area of your lives now. Saturn demands simplicity, definition, realism, and truth and it tests your weak areas that need strengthening.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 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.
*) 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.
I wish you the best transits!
