The Week Ahead: December 11-17

 

Jupiter tightens his semi-square to Saturn this week. It is a serious aspect between the two ‘elder statesmen planets’ which will maintain a close orb of influence now for the next 3-4 months – a fitting finale to the egress of Saturn from Sagittarius and into Capricorn (Dec 20).

As the two giants fight it out over laws and ethics in the socio-political arena, on the personal front matters begin to pose serious tests to our faith. Along with all the other personal action in Sadge this week, this can become a highly adventurous reality game show which aspires to religious proportions. [here’s what happened last time these guys met in 2015]

Jupiter conjunct Vesta (13°♏21′) only accentuates the fierce devotion and fight-to-the-death dedication we commit now to our sacred quest. We see many aligning to practice/preach their truth with immensely powerful conviction, willing to give up everything to demonstrate the cause of their undying faith. If you are inspired to travel broadly, start a new course of education, undertake an expedition into discovering you philosophical or cultural roots or perhaps embark on a holy crusade, then this may be the time. Some may be willing to give up their partners, or even sexual contact in general, swearing an oath of allegiance to ‘god’ renouncing their past, and commiting all work, even their sexuality in the service of the great Spirit.

In many respects, circumstances in our lives conspire to make us question the strength and validity, not only of our own belief structure but also those of our neighbours.

Indeed, so intense is the applied pressure of these current Jupiter transits, that over the next weeks/months we come under relentless force to justify the point of all belief structures in this world. If the world is undergoing a global moral/ethical crisis, then this is a time when many might step up to join the fight for the holy cause that ends up means most in their own heart of hearts. (is it the mighty US dollar, or is it the creepishly cryptocurrent bitcoin?) (or is it still ‘god’?)

What do you believe in? Is it something you can describe when asked? And how do you take being questioned or challenged on areas of your faith that others have difficulty following; especially when they ask for logical explanations, or proof? How do you take being criticised on the impeccability of your truth, especially where elements of your faith may seem inconsistent or hypocritical?

Can get tricky really, especially if by now, what you feel to be true for you lacks intact structure, or fails to provide any real substance or basis in fact.

What we discover this week is if we are about to be tested, we must in every way possible prepare our argument to stand by what we believe. Mercury’s inferior Solar conjunction (21°♐14’℞) and to Venus (17°♐52’℞) will ask you to “put your money where you mouth is” and see whether you are prepared to effectively articulate and peaceably justify what you mean when you express your highly valued principles. If it’s a dogmatic case of “my Country/God/Truth, right or wrong” then with Mars at semisquare, you may just have to be prepared to defend these, or be ripped. Mars in Scorpio takes no prisoners, and it can really be ruthless in a fight.

The big question for us will be, if we do chose to stick our ‘truth’ guns, will being right (or righteous) bring us greater cohesion and ease with others in our world (who are only going to stick to their own guns) or will it just create greater anguish and division among us?Chances are, that we will somehow put ourselves into scenarios where we are challenged to delineate our point of view, especially if it is packed with loads of dogma. For the past 2-3 years, Saturn has been screwing us tightly to define how our fundamental beliefs and philosophies are working out for us. So, are our calcified, crystalised notions about how we see the world bringing happiness, enthusiasm, joy into our world or are these lofty edicts and decrees only creating rifts of  separation, loneliness and grief?Check yourself out. How’s it all working out for you?
Are you happy, or sad?
Or are you perhaps, day to day, swinging from one extreme to the other?

On the most personal level, there’s no real way of avoiding the truth about your situation. As Sun squares Chiron and trines Uranus (Sat) this could dredge up all sorts of painful stuff that you may just not wish to face, but have no choice to see it for what it is. The gig is up, it’s transparently obvious to everyone. Any denials now can threaten to expose or damage your entire identity and way of life. You may to make some difficult choices in how you manage any sensitive matters, but ultimately, coming clean is the best option this week.

This lines us up nicely for what’s coming up the following week, starting with a phenomenally-timed New Moon/Saturn at the galactic centre, a new start, hosted by the angels from the source of all creation. Let’s see how we go with getting through this week.

Will have full length articles on Saturn in Capricorn midweek, plus individual messages for each of the 12 signs, so get onto your subscription, and join me midweek for a special Cosmic Bus webinar via fb live ==>  Boarding the Cosmic Bus

Blessings, and have an amazing week xx
