December seems to be a bit of a wild card energetically. Perhaps it's Uranus' influence, now that the planet is moving forward again, creating sudden and perhaps unexpected life changes. And maybe it's also having all the planets in direct motion, all eager to get their work with us accomplished. And it's also true that we're nearing another pair of eclipses, a season when there are often major shifts.
And, as well, we are continuing to work with the energy of the Pluto-Saturn square, which is testing the structures of our lives and dismantling whatever does not stand up to the challenge.
On top of that, the Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter triple conjunction is strong again, with Jupiter conjoining Chiron on December 7 and then aligned with Neptune on December 21, within a few hours of the Winter Solstice. This is very high-vibrational energy, bringing forward wounds that remain to be healed, and offering the spiritual perspective that sees the meaning and purpose of all that we experience. With this threesome in Aquarius, the primary healing is of the wound of separation -- the belief that we can be separated by time or space from those we love. This healing involves a complete shift in our perspective, from human to spiritual, from individual to cosmic.
Because of Neptune's involvement, we are also called to dissolve attachments now -- not only to specific outcomes, but also to beliefs, ideas, attitudes and opinions. This is, after all, the last month of the year, corresponding in some ways with the energies of the 12th house of an astrological chart, where we are asked to put down the burdens we've been carrying, and to trust the process of completion, knowing that it always precedes a new beginning.
