Note from Kelly:
For those of you who mostly read (vs listen to or watch) these updates, I wanted to let you know that I often have additional insights on the Audio & Video version of this forecast and I encourage you to check it out if you feel called. Those of you who are into YouTube, I’m working on new and different sunsets, moon rises and other nature scenes to share with you. I hope you enjoy the variety. Last week, I had to repeat a video but I was able to get that incredible Taurus Full Moon Rising shot when I was unable to get the sunset video to cooperate, so it all worked out in the end 😉 OneLove, Kelly
12/2 ~ Sun (source & essential Self) ~square~ Mars (desires & actions):
This is a challenge about your energy and how to direct it properly. You started something about 6-months ago that now challenges who you are and what you want and because of that, it is becoming more & more obvious that some adjustments must be made. It’s not a good versus bad thing, just a test to get out of your comfort zone and into new territory. You are supported to get your true desires congruent with what/who you present to the world. As you develop that, often the first things that come up are what’s not working. It may seem as if the Universe, and a couple of humans for good measure, will be pointing out your weaknesses, short-comings, lack of preparation and mistakes you’ve made. But be careful not to take things too personal, and keep in mind that if it’s being brought into your awareness, you can learn from it. Keep self-preservation in mind, and be compassionate with others struggling with their own identity issues at this time. This is energy that needs a positive, physical outlet too. If you can channel it through physical exercise or an activity you really love you may find that the *Moving Meditation* opens you up to better choices and possibilities for authentic decisions, while denial & suppression only lead to disappointment, illness or accidents.
12/5 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):
This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It’s only temporary, this is just the Universe’s way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy, or even based on a past desire that you no longer want. If your energy is low and you’re feeling challenged to see the bright side of things, it is better to just time-out, rest & replenish (if possible) and most of all, do not initiate any grand plans as you are not really seeing things as they truly are at this time. Luckily, this is a pretty short-lived activation.
12/6 ~ Mercury Direct in SCORPIO:
This Mercury Retro is so special after the year we’ve all had. Try to set some time aside for your Self this December to truly reflect on the year of 2018. How did it go for you? What Truth is over & done? What New Story do you want to tell with your life choices? These are Mercury questions to start the ball rolling. Part of the reflections is to ask the tough questions. It went backwards in Sag, indicating that it is definitely time to evolve your own Story in a meaningful way. Because Sag’s Ruler, Jupiter, just arrived home for the first time in 12-years, it’s a good time to determine what little piece of your Story is actually related to the Social or Collective Story in some way. You should be able to see where/how you affect the world around you, near or far and if you think you have no influence on your surroundings, think again. You absolutely do. This Retro is good for tapping into your SoulSelf and asking how you can channel your immense creative power and how you can channel your infinite resources in new, different and more effective ways. It’s time to honor the losses of the year and know that they cleared space, literally or figuratively, preparing you to host & handle new thoughts, ideas & concepts. You are preparing space to have all your new-idea-seeds begin take root.
12/7 ~ SAGITTARIUS New Moon:
Does your daily life have depth & meaning? Do you rise with each day, enthusiastic about the possibilities? If life has been particularly heavy & dark recently, this is the beginning of a whole year of improvements, expansion (in a good way) and positive outcomes that rise out of the ashes of what came before. It’s time to believe something greater, to have faith in your Self and the Infinite Source that guides and sustains you. It is time to tell a New Story because you’ve learned so much in the last year (or in the last 3-6-9 or 12-years, thanks to Jupiter).
This is affecting everyone, but it is particularly intense & customized for the *Mutable* Family… SAG *Initiation*~GEMINI *Integration* ~ VIRGO/PISCES *Test/Growth*. Remember, we stabilize with the Fixed Signs, we choose & move with the Cardinal Signs, but when the Mutable Signs are activated, we mentally, emotionally, spiritually & physically *process & assimilate* the year. Sag always launches the final research & development process of the year. This is when you reflect on the last year of your life and determine what it all really “means” to you personally. Another way I like to describe how the different modalities work is: Fixed Signs are the Bones; Cardinal Signs are the Muscles; Mutable Signs are the Tendons, Ligaments & Fasciae, which facilitate the connection of bone-to-muscle, bone-to-bone and muscle-to-muscle (respectively). It is so easy to take for granted the ‘little things‘ or forget to *stretch* and take time out to make those inner *connections* by processing your life, assimilating your experiences & tracking your choices, all of which allows you increased mobility and more actual freedom. Just imagine not being able to MOVE! Without the connections, bones & muscles are useless and without making meaning out of your life, you can easily stumble through life getting repeatedly injured and never really feel free or mobile.
12/7 ~ Mars (actions & desires) ~conjunct~ Neptune (dreams & visions):
This energy is great for tapping in to your intuition and acting on its promptings. If you’re focused on your dreams at the moment, this will give you a boost of creative energy. It is time to expand your vision and play a little. This is not necessarily a time to push your body, but your imagination! How well do you do with your action, fearlessness, passion, and desire nature? If you resist these aspects of your nature, this energy can be tough to navigate. Sometimes you can feel much like you’re walking on the bottom of the pool, instead, try to practice floating above it all rather than letting it get you down. This energy reminds us that effectiveness is more important than speed in most cases, so watch what gets you fired up and direct it consciously, also be more pro-active rather than re-active, use your imagination every chance you get and embrace opportunities to improvise. Be gentle & compassionate with your Self and others, honoring all wherever they may be on their chosen Path.
