ASTROLOGY – December 2006

December 2006, Astrological Newsletter by Michelle Karen

Michelle Karén, M.A., D.F.Astrol.S.

In December, starting on 12/5, the only planet to be retrograde is Saturn, at 25º Leo. In the Sabian Symbols, this degree is symbolized by “A large camel seen crossing a vast and forbidding desert”. For the next 4 months, we shall have to rely on our inner wisdom, and self-sufficiently deal with hardships, responsibilities or obligations. Our strength of character is being tested. The utmost integrity is required of us, as our anchor in our divine truth is being challenged. Out of those trials our light will emerge stronger and all that we have been working towards will be that much closer to manifestation.
Kindly note that all the times given below are in Pacific Standard Time (PST). For the East Coast, add 3 hours. For France and Switzerland, add 9 hours, etc….

The Winter Solstice will occur on December 21st at 4:23 PM right after the New Moon, which means that both the Sun AND the Moon will be in Capricorn. The Sun at 0º Capricorn is always an interesting position: “An Indian Chief claims power from the assembled tribe”. A time to assert our true authority and leadership abilities. But we are not alone as we are attracting around us our Family of Light whose members lovingly support the expansion of our consciousness. We are only really blooming consciously into who we always have been, and just need to remember.
The Moon will be Void of Course (V/C) this month on:

  • Friday 12/1 between 10:40 AM and 5:26 PM when the Moon enters Taurus
  • Sunday 12/3 between 4:31 PM and 7:05 PM when the Moon enters Gemini
  • Tuesday 12/5 between 3:11 PM and 10:00 PM when the Moon enters Cancer
  • Wednesday 12/6 at 5:13 PM all through Friday 12/8 at 3:52 AM when the Moon enters Leo
  • Sunday 12/10 between 12:35 PM and 1:31 PM when the Moon enters Virgo
  • Tuesday 12/12 at 6:32 PM till Wednesday 12/13 at 2:00 AM when the Moon enters Libra
  • Friday 12/15 between 7:33 AM and 2:42 PM when the Moon enters Scorpio
  • Sunday 12/17 at 3:31 PM till Monday 12/18 at 1:10 AM when the Moon enters Sagittarius
  • Wednesday 12/20 between 6:01 AM and 8:39 AM when the Moon enters Capricorn
  • Thursday 12/21 at 8:05 AM till Friday 12/22 at 1:49 PM when the Moon enters Aquarius
  • Sunday 12/24 between 12:09 PM and 5:43 PM when the Moon enters Pisces
  • Tuesday 12/26 between 7:05 PM and 9:04 PM when the Moon enters Aries
  • Thursday 12/28 at 6:54 PM till Friday 12/29 at 0:08 AM when the Moon enters Taurus
  • Saturday 12/30 at 6:37 PM till Sunday 12/31 at 3:16 AM

These are wonderful times to meditate or do anything that enhances our spiritual, inner life. Best to avoid signing contracts, important meetings or anything in the external, material, world as these would end up being voided or leading to nothing. During the V/C Moon, we enter inter-dimensional spaces where much valuable spiritual information can be downloaded more directly.

Our intentional meditation will start with the Full Moon in Gemini, on Monday 12/4 at 4:25 PM PST.
Just charge your blank sheets of paper at that time (leaving them a little before and after for security). Put them away. At the New Moon in Sagittarius which will occur on Wednesday 20th, at exactly 6:01 AM PST, take them out again, write a clear, concise intention on each Full Moon charged sheet. After the moment has passed, staple them together, writing also the date, and rejoice in the concrete manifestations of your dreams!
