Here we are once again on the threshold of completing another powerful year of change and surfing waves of immense "vibrational proportion" through this timing of our Ascension preparation. December is always a month of contemplative review as we revisit the energy shifts and experiences of the past twelve months. Throughout the year the energy of each month adds to the next creating a melting pot or crucible of energy that forms a bridge to the coming year.
Yes, the title of this article is from the Rolling Stones song but it is what I heard when I recently shared a success with someone, only to be met with a stream of criticism and doubt that made me take a step back. Was I looking at my situation the wrong way? Was she seeing something I had missed? Should I ignore her comments or were they true? I had been happy on my cloud until she stepped on it and brought rain into my sunny day.
We communicate with dozens of people daily, whether if it's through technology, or more natural means. Technology has given us multiple ways to communicate with family friends and even strangers. Through technology, we have become a society of instant gratification. Everything has to be readily available. This thought process has spilled over into other life faucets and even made us very demanding and less grateful.
When I was going through a period that I would describe as one of the darkest nights of my soul, I was overwhelmed by the cascade of events, each one more challenging than the one before, that seemed to appear out of nowhere, on an almost daily basis. I knew that this was a mistake, that this was not my life and certainly not something I had volunteered for on any level.
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity.

Can it be that we have reached the final month of this calendar year? Now is the time that you will look back upon your accomplishments while beginning to look ahead into the coming year, wondering what it is that you will create. At the same time, you will experience the energy that December brings: Culmination and Beginnings. You will likely feel the dual energies, then, of grand endings and the completion of long-due projects, while at the same time you’ll feel the siren’s call of the Next Big Thing that awaits you.
Alert! Major waves of light coming in! (As if you needed the announcement!) These first few days of December the energy infusions are coming in big and strong. It all feels very beautiful and expansive, yet it's challenging to "do" things! There's lots of inner stuff going on that's taking up most of my focus and energy. There's tremendous transformation and shifting taking place beneath the surface of things in our lives and a really delicious love-filled energy surrounding and flowing through us.
December's Sagittarius new Moon falls on December 5 in the United States and December 6 in Australia. The Sabian Symbol for the new Moon is Sagittarius 14: A Vast Panorama Of Sand And Time Is Unfolding: The Pyramids And Sphinx In Their Glory Rise Before The Eye. This is a deep and complicated degree (as are most degrees!), and it infers things all the way from building edifices of spiritual practice all the way up to multi-level marketing, big business, exploitation of labor and people's time, energy and resources.
It's finally the last month of what has been a challenging year but not as much as previous years. This month may seem to move slowly because there will be many opportunities to complete work we have been doing all year and that includes the final release of beliefs, people, situations and memories that we have been working on since 1995. To give us support Mercury is retrograde all month, Venus is re-tracing its retrograde path until the 21st and we have a full moon lunar eclipse on the same day.
I arrive in this moment of expansive stillness, fully present to what is and opening to what could be. I realize that knowing this, orients me to now with an expectancy which is itself fulfilling! This orientation to wonder gives my entire being a alertness and radiance which feels delicious!
