Astrological Forecast for December 2017

by Lou Valentino

Happy Holidays to everyone. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018.

December brings in the spirit of giving. The signs most effected this month are Gemini, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces and Virgo.

We start off December with Venus moving into the sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is getting most of the spot light in the skies this month. Venus in Sagittarius brings joy, beauty, attractiveness and abundance into the lives of those with Sun, Moon or rising in Sagittarius. Extra luck is there for those who are half horse /half man.

Mercury stations retrograde from December 3rd till the 22nd. It starts off at 29 degrees of Sagittarius and stations direct on the 22nd at 13 degrees. Venus just moved into Sagittarius and now Mercury turns retrograde in Sagittarius. A great time to reflect on the bigger picture of life. Questions about how we can solve many of the problems through the religious and philosophical sign of Sagittarius.

Plant seeds of a higher vision. Shooting for larger than life dreams. Getting in touch with what you really want to do with your life as it moves into a new year 2018. Then when Mercury turns direct you let go of the arrow and shoot for the stars.

All planets will be in direct motion from January 3, 2018 till March 8, 2018. Take advantage of this Mercury retrograde period to plant seeds and visions that you want to manifest by the end of December 2017 through March of 2018.

Mercury stations retrograde at 2:34AM EST and then we have a full Moon in the sign of Gemini on the same day, December 3rd, at 10:47AM EST. Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini. The Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces take a hit with this full Moon in Gemini at 11 degrees. Why? Because Neptune in Pisces, full Moon in Gemini and Sun in Sagittarius are all at 11 degrees forming a t-square of tensions.

It was the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn that had problems with full and new Moon t- squares over the last year or so. This full Moon in Gemini will create all kinds of gossips in relationships. Over talking in all relationships to the point where someone, most likely the Virgo's, will help to ground the other 3 mutable signs.

The media could be out of control on international (Sagittarius) issues rather than focusing on the tax plan the congress will try to push through this month. Neptune is at the center of the t-square (Neptune influences Media perception) which creates a foggy perception between the difference of reality and what is make believe.

President Trump calls it “Fake News”. Neptune is trine to Jupiter helping the outcome of tensions in world events calm down. If you are born under any of the mutable signs, especially Pisces, it would be wise to calm your mind and soul down to see the trees from the forest. Waiting until Mercury turns direct to say what's on your mind may be better in the long run.

Mars enters Scorpio on December 9th. Mars feels comfortable in the sign of Scorpio where it will remain till January 27th, 2018. Mars was the classical ruler of Scorpio before Pluto was discovered. Those with Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio will have plenty of passion and physical energy over the holiday season and usher in the new year with abundant energies in mind, body and spirit. Get plenty of exercise to stabilize the intense mental and physical drive you will have. Try to stay away from arguments with others.

The new Moon on December 18th at 26 degrees of Sagittarius (1:30AM EST) packs a powerful stellium in Sagittarius. Mercury, Venus, Sun, Moon and Saturn are all in Sagittarius. With the new Moon chart being cast in Washington D.C the stellium is in the 3rd house, we have and International conference going on between countries.

Venus through Saturn, excluding Mercury, are all forming a trine to Uranus in the 7th house. Add in the grand trine in water signs and you have the wind at your back in foreign affairs. If your born under the sign of Sagittarius you are ready to start a new wave of projects you've been working on connecting to an international business world via communication (3rdhouse) that gets delivered in a hurry (Uranus) across the waters of the world (Grand Water Trine).

It's time for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Sagittarius to fly high and make 2018 your best year yet. It's time for world leaders in politics and religion to relax more on international travel and calm people down through religious and spiritual values like better ethical laws and holistic healthcare practices like yoga/meditation.

Pluto square to Uranus and the rising sign of Libra in the new Moon chart could indicate more violence internationally over the holiday season like we just saw in Egypt that calls for new approaches to releasing stress in the collective consciousness of the world.

Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19th finishing its almost 3 year stay i Sagittarius. Saturn feels comfortable in Capricorn and this marks a completion for those with Sun, Moon or rising in Capricorn who have been through so much stress and tensions since 2008. A well deserved vacation for cardinal signs especially Capricorn.

Sun moves into Capricorn on December 21st at 11:28AM EST and starts the Winter Solstice. Mercury turns direct on the 22nd and Venus moves into Capricorn on Christmas Day the 25th. Obviously the shift from Sagittarius to Capricorn is starting to happen from the 19th through the 25th. Start the Winter off in dee

Happy Birthday to those born under the sign of Capricorn.

Wishing your families and friends a perfect and joyful holiday season. Remember, I have a Christmas/New Years sale going on till December 20th .
