Astrologer’s Diary – Sunday 9th to Saturday 15th December

Saturday 15th December

Wow, it really feels like Winter has arrived, the wind was cutting this morning when I went to the village shop. If we are lucky enough to get a clear evening then the moon is in Pisces and close to Mars which is always worth a look. Astrologically, when the Moon and Mars are close together we could feel a bit sensitive and emotional, especially as it is in Pisces. So this is a good time to snuggle up in the warm and watch a weepy movie!

Friday 14th December

Yesterday I had some exciting post; a copy of January’s ‘Let’s Talk’ magazine and I am in it! I am doing a regular astrology feature ‘Star Talk’ where I discuss a sign of the month. For January this is Capricorn as Capricorns are born from 21st December – 20th January. Thank you to Angie and Terry and the Let’s Talk team for including me in their magazine. Astrologically, Jupiter, planet of opportunity and expansion is currently moving through Sagittarius and it is now very close to (conjunct) my natal sun. (The place of sun when I was born) so this is a lucky time for me and all you other Saggies out there.
If you would like to know about how the planets are playing out for you at the moment, I do individual readings. Please contact me for more details.

Thursday December 13th

I said yesterday that Mercury has moved into Sagittarius. If you like planet spotting, it is visible in the early morning just before sunrise. Luckily for me, a sleepy head, sunrise is very late here in the northern hemisphere as it is only 8 days before the winter solstice. If you want to find Mercury, first pick a clear morning! Then if you have the chance between your morning duties, school run, toast making, etc, go outside before dawn. Tomorrow Friday 14th, it is 7.59 in Norfolk (regionally it varies a little bit) look to the East and find Venus. It is very bright and beautiful at the moment. (I’ve been going on about spotting Venus in the morning for a while now, on and off.) Mercury is also bright and below Venus. Also, if you feel like braving the cold, tonight is a good night to go out and look for the Geminids meteor shower. We are very lucky here in Norfolk to have dark skies. Apparently is best to look for them at 2am but you can be lucky and see them earlier than that, they are a bit unpredictable!

Wednesday 12th December

Tonight just before midnight, Mercury moves back into Sagittarius. It was in Sagittarius all of November and spent the first two weeks of December in Scorpio where it turned round and is now moving forward again. Sagittarius is a lively, generous sign but as I have said before it is not too keen on details. So this is good for getting into the party spirit and giving great presents, but do check those pesky details like dates and addresses!

Tuesday 11th December 2018

Hello, it’s a beautiful morning, I love the frosty winter days. It’s not so good if you’re a chicken though! I had to melt the water on my birds’ drinker today and yes, one of them had laid an egg this morning. 🙂
Today Mercury communication planet is in the last degree of Scorpio, ready to move into Sagittarius. There is often a sense of urgency when a planet is in the last degree of a sign. It is forming a grand trine to healer planet Chiron and the Moon’s North Node in Cancer. Venus is making a positive aspect to gentle romantic Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So today is a good day for communicating about emotions and nurturing relationships.

Chiron the wounded healer went direct yesterday. Chiron was discovered in 1977 and is used by most modern astrologers. Chiron is classified as a minor planet and a comet. It orbits between Saturn and Uranus. It takes 50 years to go round the sun and has a very uneven – elliptical orbit, whizzing through some signs and spending ages in others. Chiron spends a long time in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac and has been there since 2011. It briefly entered Aries in April 2018 then reversed back into the last degrees of Pisces. It will spend the next few months until March moving through the last degrees of Pisces until it goes into Aries for good- well the next 50 years anyway. The symbol for Chiron is a key and in the Greek myths he was a healer and teacher who helped others unlock their skills and potential.
 
When Chiron is retrograde it is easy to get stuck in old self defeating patterns- tell me about it! So now it is direct this is a time to release those old habits, if we can. I am trying- yes, very trying says my husband.😉
 
 

 

 

 

Sunday 9th December

It is a lovely clear evening here in Norfolk and the new moon is visible. It is a beautiful silver sliver visible in the evening as it now sets after the sun. Tonight the sun set at 15.40 GMT in Norwich and the moon will set at 17:41 , so if you want to see it, pop out and have a look. It is in the South West low in the sky as it is in Capricorn. (Cloud permitting). A new moon is good time to start things and tomorrow I have a lot of reading to do! The new moon from our lane, just about visible in my photo.🙂
