A couple of weeks ago we encountered a powerful ‘portal’ to divine wisdom in the form of a conjunction between the Black Sun and Black Moon Lilith, the latter of which was travelling retrograde through Cancer.
We may find ourselves experiencing apparently opposing forces at the moment. On the one hand we feel the burgeoning need to clear away the old out-dated aspects of our lives in order to begin afresh and express our inner changes on an external level.
Uranus is now in the final week of its retrograde phase before stationing direct on 17thDecember. Between now and then it encourages us to reflect upon the past five months to discern its action in our lives.
At 8:42 pm GMT on 7th December Mars enters Libra. Generally speaking Mars moves through signs fairly rapidly, spending roughly a few weeks in each, bringing his ‘get up and go’ energy to their particular domain.
Welcome. Willkommen. Aloha. Bienvenue. The list goes on and on, although sadly my knowledge of languages is a little limited! On looking at the possible different translations of ‘welcome’ into other languages, it is fascinating to see the similarities, as well as the differences, around the world.
This is a healthy selfish energy. Do not hold back this week. If you have a goal you have been working diligently toward, then this is the time that may attract the assistance you need from the Universe.

Venus rules everything we truly care about and how we go about creating or acquiring it. Among other things, it rules love, art and beauty, all things that can be physical but the feeling they give us when we experience them is subtle, magnetic energy that draws us in and speaks directly to the heart.
This week Mercury features strongly in our cosmic maps, highlighting new areas of knowledge and fresh insights. On 26th it joins forces with Saturn which it last did at the end of October just prior to the Uranus/Pluto square and the solar eclipse at the beginning of this month.
After the *Annual* re-connection with Soul in Scorpio, which usually includes digging deep and dealing with your own unique Raw Truth, you come up for air in Sag and are given the opportunity to make meaning out of - not only the experience of Underworld Exploration - but of the entire past year.
Your energy may be lower than usual today. This is the Universe's way of slowing you down, momentarily. Take it easy and put off anything that can be put off. You may feel pessimistic, however, it will pass.
The fire element is strong today, making its presence felt. With the Sun now in Sagittarius, the Moon in Leo at the apex of a yod, and the Sun and Moon creating a grand trine in fire with Uranus, if we need a boost of courage, energy and inspiration we should get one today!
