Festive December

I Believe God Wants You To KNow

..that the opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.

Niels Bohr said that, and he was right. In fact, there have been few statements in the history of statement-making that were more accurate than that one. So be aware and stay awake! The Law of Opposites sometimes leads you to a Divine Dichotomy.

Two opposing truths can exist simultaneously in the same space. Do not therefore assume that That Which Opposes You is That Which Is Not Good For You. It may be just the reverse.

Neale Donald Walsch

Let’s welcome the festive month of December and celebrate the season!

December is a hectic month for most of us, and the cosmos seems to match the frenzied pace as 2008 comes to a close!

This is a month when planets are forming squares. A square is a major astrological aspect and is present when two planets are 90 degrees from each other. The essence of a square is friction. Things happen, and they’re no small matter. The energy surrounding a square is forceful, intense and powerful.

On December 4, Mercury squares Uranus and your mind will be buzzing with ideas. On the 5th, the Sun conjuncts Mars and they will be within an orb of eight degrees to each other. The sheer energy of the duo can become unbelievably productive or very explosive. This is a good time to avoid ego battles. On the 6th, Mercury squares Saturn and you will need to defend your point of view. The Sun squares Uranus on the 10th, and the challenge is to break free from old self-definitions. On the 11th, Mars squares Uranus creating a rebellious combination — be ready for a challenge, yoo-hoo! On the 12th, the Sun squares Saturn and self-assessment is emphasized. Also, on the 12th, Mercury enters Capricorn stabilizing your thinking — it’s a good time to plan! And on the 15th, Mars squares Saturn and you will find yourself suddenly stopped in your tracks. Delays normally mark this period, and plans and projects will get stalled for some time. On the 22nd the Sun conjuncts Pluto — conjunctions mark new beginnings, and this particular one is powerful and it requires you to be clear about where you direct your energy — otherwise someone else is likely to take charge. Finally, on December 28, Mars conjuncts Pluto — use the strength and power of this energy to direct it toward something you want to achieve.

December 12 also brings an emotional full Moon with the Saturn-Uranus opposition squaring the full Moon and with Mars sitting next to the Sun. This is a good time to keep your cool. The corresponding new Moon in Capricorn, on the 27th, is the last new Moon of the year, and is fitting as we reflect upon this past year and plan for the new one.

On December 21, the Sun enters Capricorn and we celebrate the Winter Solstice. This is a great time to reflect upon the past and make plans for your future as the Sun illumines a pathway toward the achievement of your goals. And finally Saturn turns retrograde on the last day of 2008. The planet of karma and discipline goes retrograde once a year for about four-and-a-half months. This planet in retrograde is a taskmaster, making us work with extra effort or making us think deeply and contemplate our actions or the world around us. Take this opportunity to breathe and to do things the right way the first time around. Courtesy of Astrology.com

Let the Divine Energy flow through you this month and engulf in its joyful vibe. Pay extra attention to your thoughts, as you revise your “check-off list” for the coming year of 2009, of the Gregorian calendar. I hope you enjoy yourself this month and allow the approaching days of celebration to inspire you to vibrate Happy Energy. And don’t forget, there are always reasons to engage in joyful celebration. The more celebratory energy you “produce” the more you send off into the air, spreading it throughout the world. This is how we heal the planet, and reduce the negative energies that dwell over it’s green and watery surface. Remember that whatever you celebrate make sure you do exactly that … celebrate! Bring happiness into your life, let the joyful energy surround you, blessing your home, your path, and every choice you make.

Divine Blessings, and very Merry Holidays!!!
