Your Weekly Horoscope By Element - Dec. 21-27, 2008

by Elizabeth Joyce

At the Winter Solstice on the 21st, choose companions, interests, and activities that can enhance your reputation. Before New Year’s Eve, when Saturn turns retrograde in Virgo, take time to review the choices you made in 2008 and focus on some good resolutions for 2009. Write them down and review them over the new months of the New Year. Figure out exactly what you want to accomplish in 2009. Then, with the new goals set in your mind, you will be able to create a better life for yourself. 2009 is a Fated Year and hard work will be necessary to accomplish your desires.

The Winter Solstice is considered one of the most powerful times of the year by many cultures around the world. In the Northern Hemisphere this celestial event occurs on December 21st. The timing of the solstice this year will be Sunday, December 21, at 7:04 am EST, 4:04 am PST, or 12:04 pm Greenwich Mean Time.

The Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year, and it brings the initial impulse of the annual return of the Sun, the Light, to the Earth. The Sun with power enjoyed saves and warms us with it’s Light. This year the spiritual effects of the solstice will be more powerful than ever before. This is due to the incredible influx of Light that is pouring into the planet through the angelic realms, at the beginning of a Fated Year for people everywhere.

The Sun's entry into cautious Capricorn marks the Winter Solstice at 7:04 am EST, a powerful turning point when the Sun reaches its southernmost place in the sky. We are somber on this shortest day, especially as the Sun heads toward a conjunction with potent Pluto. The Moon's entry into shadowy Scorpio at 6:36 pm EST intensifies our dark desires while a tense Venus-Pluto square can raise issues of jealousy and control in an intimate relationship.

There are two eclipses in January and this New Year 2009, marks another rarity, the beginning of the Chinese New year on January 26th on a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius. With both Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, as well as the Sun, and Saturn in Virgo, you can bet that this will be a cold, snowy and icy winter. This is why 2009 is called a fated year, as the Sun, Mars and Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, for the first time in thirty years.

This year brings us the Chinese Year of the Ox: Personality of the Ox is: Patient, determined, and easy going, you never miss a beat. The Ox person succeeds by using their own merits; hard working, logical, and tenacious, the ox can be trusted to get the job done. By nature, the ox is methodical, sticking to routines and tradition. The rigidity and militant style of the Ox often results in an unapproachable and intimidating personality. You will be happy as a tennis pro, surgeon, hair stylist, secret service, government work or rock climber.

Humanity is experiencing the most intensified purging of the economic system, and the various other social structures that do not operate with a consciousness of the highest good for all concerned, as an Aquarius Solar Eclipse represents. This is a necessary cleansing that is paving the way for patterns of perfection and renewing for the New Earth. The difficult part of this process is that the masses of humanity, the collective consciousness, do not see the bigger picture. Hence they are locked in fear as corporations, banks, small business and governments begin to crumble. Millions of people see only the painful situations that are happening in their lives. As a result of this limited perception, they feel overwhelmed and hopeless. Although this is very hard to observe, experience and flow with, but it is not all bad. Our money system and exchange for goods and services is in a complete flux of change. (It does not matter who our rulers or leaders are, this would have happened anyway, under the hands of fate!)

We have become so numb to the discord in our lives that we just muddled through our Earthly experiences accepting mediocrity as a natural state of being. We fell into the terrible habit of using pain as our motivator. Unless we were writhing in agony, we did not feel that it would help to take action or to ask for assistance from our Blessed Higher Self or even God. For millions of people on Earth, prayer and an invocation for Light from the universe occurs only when people are brought to their knees by their life situations. This is exactly what is happening at this time for millions of people all over the world. Most of us will be on our knees as the month of April opens. (March promises to be a most unforgiving month, both weather wise as well as financially, world wide.)

The Universe is revealing to us now that more people than ever before are reaching a critical moment in their life experiences. Consequently, millions of people are asking God for Divine Intervention. Many of them are praying for the very first time. This powerful experiencet, in unison with the millions of Lightworkers who daily invoke the Light of God, has created the greatest influx of Light the Earth has ever experienced during a Winter Solstice. This Heavenly assistance will greatly empower the patterns of perfection for our planet, and it will accelerate our individual hopes and dreams by leaps and bounds. That is the focus and promise of a full eclipse in Aquarius.

Beginning now, and continuing for the next 72 hours, focus intently on the vision of what you want to manifest in your life and the lives of your loved ones. Write it down! Focus on your visions for the planet and the harmony and balance you wish for all humanity. This is a rare opportunity, and we are being called to action by our I AM Presence, our Blessed Higher Self. Be sure your visions and your intentions always reflect our Oneness and the reverence for ALL life.

This event will pave the way for a Victorious New Year. 2009 is going to be a year of miraculous changes. These changes have been in the works for quite some time, and now we are going to experience them tangibly in the world of form. These changes will not happen by chance. They will occur through the power of Fate, and the unified efforts of Light Workers all over the world who serve our highest good and re-direct our souls back to the Light.

I know there are a lot of dire predictions coming from me and others regarding the global economy and the challenges that humanity is going through, but we are not the victims of circumstance. We are the co-creators of our earthly experiences. If we do not like the way things are going in our lives, we have the ability to change our circumstances. This is what we have been preparing for, this is why we chose this life-time to incarnate, and now we must make a definite step, for now is the time.

2009 numerically is an 11 year. (2009 = 11/2) Eleven is the Master Number that reflects the transformation of the physical into the Divine. This energy brings the archetypes for the patterns of perfection, for the Light Workers to teach and manifest for the changes that will create and bring the foundation for the New Earth that begins in 2012. In 2009, through our creative faculties of thought and feeling, we will expand these light patterns into our daily experiences.

The purging and cleansing of the obsolete behavior patterns that have caused the maladies existing in humanity’s life will continue. But the wonderful news is, as these old archetypes crumble away, the expansion of the patterns of perfection for the 2012 reality will begin to manifest in ways that will bring joy, fulfillment and great expectations into the hearts and minds of people everywhere. We will begin to manifest and live in Universal Love.

There will be a new sense of hope flooding through the hearts of people around the world. Humanity’s hope is magnetizing Legions of Light from the Realms of Perfection into the atmosphere of Earth in ways we have never experienced. The Divine Intent of these Messengers of God is to assist humanity, through the energies of the 5th Dimension, to move quickly through the cleansing process so that the bliss of the higher energies will manifest in the twinkling of an eye.

2009 is going to be whatever we co-create together. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. (The next First Level Class is in January 11th, 2009 in Doylestown, PA.)

2009 It's all about give and take! A push-pull dynamic dominates 2009, and it is especially relevant in your relationships! But it's also a year for luck, so you could get lucky in love this year! So don't just sit around and wait for love to come calling. Prepare for a really romantic year in 2009! Whether you are committed or still looking for love, you need to know how to get what you want out of romance in 2009 so that you'll finally find and keep the love you deserve.

Schedule your 2009 reading with Elizabeth Joyce to get the dates, times and places Love will find you.

The Air Signs - Gemini - Libra – Aquarius

You are getting ready to give birth, to all kinds of dreams and potentials that you have been nurturing over the past year, Air Signs. The time has not yet arrived for your big break, but it will after the January eclipses. Usually, once the festive season begins, you are more than willing to take a break and to hibernate for a week or so. This time around, nothing much has changed. You are keen to discover what this time of the year means to you on your own terms. You aren't really interested in anyone else's interpretation. So you may be lying low but definitely enjoying yourself. You will certainly be invited out but may be the one who is on the perimeter, almost involved but not quite. Yet if you don't show up, you will be sorely missed. You may even go through a spiritual revolution, one that will change you from the inside out. On Saturday, you may find that events occur that you may not have planned; a higher force has begun to move the chess pieces on the board of your life. Have faith. A New Moon on Saturday is perfect if you want to learn meditation or a new spiritual discipline. Joining a spiritual group will give you all the support you need.

Your Love Week - Air Signs:

On Monday and Tuesday your playful side works overtime. The Moon is in the most fun-loving of all signs and stirs up your emotions. It's a week when you want to indulge your every fancy. You live to relate, and you experience being not only in tune with your partner but you feel that you're sending telepathic messages. Early in the week are the days to both charm your sweetie and cultivate the romance. This is your own personal, iron-fist-in-the-velvet-glove kind of charm. Your partner may have rose-colored glasses on and see the world through the filter of love, but you may be on a romantic mission. Your partner could be reminded of how long a leash is needed for the restless and wandering Aquarian. This reminder could bring repercussions as the Quarter Moon on Friday brings a dose of reality and a rush of harsh words. It could be that it's time to pay some special attention to your partner. As much as you love your image as a free agent, it's not really authentic. You need that other person in your life. Besides, this feeling could break the mood and bring reality into the scenario. It could be one or both of you have been taking advantage of the romantic lull and you suddenly wonder what's next. This isn't the night to ask that question. Wait until Sunday when the Sun moves into a sign of tradition and when happy endings are the ultimate goal. You may want to do a behind-the-scenes makeup session with someone important to you

The Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Whatever else is going on in your life, there's a big focus on your personal finances, and it will be even bigger by the end of the week. Your financial situation seems to be doing well. And as the New Year opens, you're optimistic that things will get even better is growing. You've probably been very generous with your presents this year, but you may need to splurge on some piece of essential mechanical equipment on Christmas Eve, so put some spare cash aside. Christmas Day will be happy and relaxing.

Your Love Week - Fire Signs:

First, last, and always you are your own person and prone to speak your mind when and where you please. This is the week you need to curb that tendency. Always the romantic rebel, you get what you crave now. Communication to a special person could produce unintentional hurt. On Monday the Moon is causing your feelings to be on the line with your partner. You may be a trifle bored and want that certain someone to show more affection. Red-hot Mars could cause a rift between you and your partner. You're impulsive not only in action but also with words, and one of the two of you may be taking too much for granted. Think before you speak this week. On Tuesday the red planet mingles with the ''playing with fire'' spirit and creates an atmosphere for falling in love with love. You could be your wild, romantic self and enthrall a new person with your dramatic gestures. The challenge extends into Thursday. Friday is the confrontational Quarter Moon. This is a turning point and a positive day to make a decision about something that has been plaguing you. The road gets bumpy and builds emotions to a crescendo and suddenly the whole bright, shiny new courtship could fizzle. Your tried and true partner detects the stars in your eyes, and you have to make a decision about the security of a steady partner or the thrill of temporarily being in love. This is a tough call! On Saturday the climate begins to simmer around your relationship or a newfound friendship. Your romantic life gets back on track this weekend. You may find a true and committed love next year!

The Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

It looks as though you're going to have a wonderful time surrounded by friends and family this week, Water Signs. When Mars moves into Capricorn you'll be even busier still, perhaps organizing events and bringing like-minded people together. A New Moon emphasizes this zone even more on Saturday, making it the best time to join or work in community clubs and move in new circles. If you want to get ahead, start networking. It's also ideal for thinking deeply about your long-term dreams and goals and beginning to put them into action. You have so much to look forward to in 2009.

Your Love Week - Water Signs:

Your deep emotional nature could be working overtime this week, Water Signs. Try not to take offense easily, as your path of least resistance could be to see conflict where it really doesn't exist. On Monday and Tuesday you feel a strong need to connect with your partner, and circumstances could make that connecting difficult. One of the themes of your week is the emergence of the wilder side of your personality. Your behavior intrigues your partner and all others who come within range of this powerful energy field. This is a week when you feel like throwing caution to the wind. You won't be holding back feelings while looking for a safe time, as is your standard behavior. On Wednesday and Thursday you could be suspicious of another's motives. If you're unattached, it could be that you're feeling somewhat alone. These feelings subside for both the attached and unattached as the weekend brings a turning point. The Quarter Moon on Friday finds you and your partner renewing your devotion to each other. This is the weekend when unattached Water Sign could get an invitation to a festive soiree where an interesting new person pays you special attention. The Universe releases an extra burst of energy, and you use that energy to flirt outrageously. You do have a wickedly playful side, and your circle of friends watche in amazement as you do your act of transformation. There could be a special person out there watching you stretch your boundaries. On Sunday the Moon moves into Capricorn and you feel more steadiness in your romantic life. You may at this time curb your enthusiasm somewhat, but your spirits are still reaching all-time highs.

The Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

Even though you've been under pressure for much of the year, you're determined to enjoy yourself now. There's a major focus on your life, Earth Signs, that's encouraging you to be creative and get out of yourself and make new friends. If you're looking for a new lover and don't relish spending Christmas by yourself, the days ahead look promising. There's plenty of socializing going on, although you may end up doing most of the entertaining. However, this doesn't mean that you have to do it all alone; there will be plenty of help. Let go of your more that serious nature and live, love, laugh while relaxing a little. Try something new, have fun!

Your Love Week - Earth Signs:

You do have an innovative side, Earth Signs, and with the help of the most powerful of the planets on Monday you flex your romantic muscles. Emotions could run wild. Relaxing your need to have your guard up creates more spontaneity this week, and your partner loves it. Always the romantic, this week, especially on Tuesday, your emotional antennae could pick up a mixed message. Being a true and loyal partner, you expect the same loyalty in return and could get sulky if you feel these qualities aren't being returned in full. Your consummate sexiness keeps your partner hooked even though the sometime sulky attitude is difficult to deal with. The week could be touch and go with changing emotions between the two of you. The climate of the relationship calms down on Wednesday and the rest of the week you enjoy the mellow feeling that your wacky side has conjured up. On Friday, the day of the Quarter Moon, there could be a heated conversation and you once more could rely on some of your control methods. The energies bring all these emotions to a head. You do act to correct any hurt feelings. The energy of the Quarter Moon is a time to release negativity. Perhaps a token gift lightens the mood. Any offering could do the trick, from a simple bottle of wine to a downright decadent item. The weekend could be a time of mixed emotions and makeup sessions that cause the heart to beat faster. On Sunday the Sun explosive energy of the week let up. All is calm and that's fine with you.
