Jupiter-Uranus Opposition

This week , we start the revolution.

Or rather, we clear the decks for the one on the way.  It doesn’t take an astrologer to tell you our times are ripe. But planetarily speaking, there’s plenty of evidence that this month might mark the calm before the storm of 2017.

In the meantime, harness this week’s get-shit-done energy. Mercury Retrograde at 15 Capricorn is coming. Be mindful, Capricorn, Virgo and Gemini-dominant folks.

We’ve officially entered the Retrograde “Shadow Period,” which may mean completing tasks will get increasingly more difficult between now and Jan. 27.

(The retrograde is Dec. 19-Jan. 8, with the “Shadow” two and a half weeks before and after.)

But don’t fear Mercury Retrograde. It’s best to use it for deep contemplation and the art of patience.

Besides, there’s much more going on this month.

We’re moving into a period of societal rebellion and breakthrough – reflected astrologically in Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries, exact Dec. 26 and active all next year. This aspect will no doubt revive some old wounds and echo the tumult of the late 1960s.

The mass consciousness has gotten its wake-up call. Personally, this means awakening to our authentic selves. Warts and all.

Now is the time to stay rooted in reality. Identify your core beliefs. Be honest with yourself. Don’t fear change. Harness it.
