Astrology of December 1st, 2016: Powerhouse

Today begins with the Moon leaving fiery, idealistic Sagittarius and entering earthy, practical Capricorn, focusing our emotions and instincts on the real world and giving us the subconscious dedication to get things done.  Finally getting some focus after the haze of the past couple of days is likely to be a relief, and a chance to make up for any lack of productivity and groundedness that we may have felt during that time.

The day proceeds without much planetary activity until evening, when the Moon’s harmonious sextile to Neptune in Pisces bring Capricornian dedication to Neptune’s dreaminess, and Neptune brings Piscean sensitivity and empathy to the Moon’s potentially driven reactions.  The Moon in Capricorn can be practical and stable, but without some tempering it can also turn devotion to fanaticism.  A harmonious alignment with Neptune in Pisces makes it easier for the better qualities of of both of these influences to support each other.

This alignment is followed shortly by Mars in Aquarius trine Jupiter in Libra.  Jupiter’s expansive quality magnifies the social drive of Mars in Aquarius, while Jupiter’s luck and wealth in social realms benefits from Martian aggression, which keeps Libra from being too self-sacrificing in the name of keeping the peace.  This is a serious powerhouse alignment, especially with the dedication and foresight that a planning Moon like Capricorn can lend to it, and it the combination of individual strength in favor of social causes and a magnified desire for social harmony make this the best possible time to channel that energy in favor of the good of all.

The combination of these two aspects in close succession gives us a great capacity to give practical form and endurance to our dreams.  Now is the time for moving meditations, sacred dance, and paying attention to our dreams, because now is a time when the formlessness of the subconscious (personal) and unconscious (ancestral, planetary) now gives you the clues you need to bring your deepest ideals and wishes into form.  This takes all that pent-up energy from the past few days and gives it a constructive and potentially very beautiful place to go.  What direction you give it is yours to choose.  Now is the time to use your dreams and wishes to create the kind of world that you most want to live in.

2016 has been a rough year for so many of us – tumultuous, depressing, and continuing to heap challenges upon us after the past few years of tension, upheaval, and in numerous cases outright disaster.  And I can’t promise that 2017 is going to be any better, but there are still opportunities for us to rise to the challenge of these times and use them as the impetuous to course-correct this crazy world.  Capricorn Moon allows your subconscious and your emotions and your instincts to take a longer view, to prepare for the long climb up the mountain, and do whatever is most necessary to reach your goals.  Make sure they are worthy of an epic climb, and know that you have the power to do this.  The heavens themselves say it’s time.
