Positive things are happening. We had a New Moon with good luck Jupiter on Friday, December 7, in Sagittarius, and then on Saturday, December 8, Chiron finally went direct at 27º Pisces. For those of you who follow these forecasts, you may recall that last spring Chiron had left Pisces. When planets travel through the tail end of Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, sorrow is reviewed, released, and hopefully healed. Chiron briefly entered Aries for a few months and then, in late September, Chiron retrograded back to Pisces one last time to finish its ten-year transit, which lasts until February 18, 2019. This provides an opportunity to clear out and clean up the sorrow. Address those things that hold your psyche hostage, seek help through a good counselor and clear out those ideas, or ideals, that you have outgrown. It is the beginning of moving forward into new thoughts, ideas and directions, particularly as Chiron re-enters Aries in February.
Practically speaking, Saturn returns to the position at which it went retrograde earlier this year. Saturn back on course adds to our sense of direction and purpose. Mercury, is leaving Scorpio, where it is an emotional thinker, and enters Sagittarius late on Wednesday, December 12. In Sagittarius, Mercury adds a bit more of an adventurous curiosity to our thinking. You may wish to review potential classes, workshops, or books you would like to read. You may want to plan a last-minute holiday trip to see those you have not seen for a while, or at least to reach out and call them. You may also wish to send those last-minute holiday blessings and gifts.
