Weekly Cosmic Tides – Astrology for the 5th December – 11th December 2011

Monday 5th December
We are off to a flying start this week as Venus trines Mars. In earthy Virgo and Capricorn, it’s all shy smiles with knowing looks and horney old goats. Mars is conjunct fixed star Al Suhail – known also as Al Suhail al Wazn. Suhail means ‘smooth plain’, Wazn means ‘weight’. It is found in the sails of the great ship Argo Navis. It’s a day for plain sailing in the love department but what occurs today carries weight. It’s about being real with your partner, sharing obligations and responsibilities, loving the other despite the odd imperfection.

In the meantime, Mercury is conjunct Royal star Antares – the heart of the Scorpion and connected to Archangel Uriel. Antares has a long and illustrious history with many attributes associated with it but the most striking is its similarity to Mars as it wears a cloak of red. As I look at the symbolism the word ‘war-mongering’ comes to mind. Whilst Venus and Mars are getting jiggy with it, any jealously or old anger voiced today may pour cold water on what looked like a romantic engagement.

Robson says that Mercury with Antares is “Suspicious, wrongfully accuses friends, unpopular, uses ecclesiastic influence in business, money obtained slowly and with much difficulty, danger of sickness to the native and his family, and death of a relative at home or away.”

Suspicion and wrongful accusation may be a theme in politics today. With Mercury still retrograde, old bitter arguments resurface threatening to flood any talk of peace between people or nations.

Tuesday 6th December 2011
Sun conjunct North Node. Last year this occurred in Capricorn, this year the conjunction occurs in Sagittarius. You have been working very hard to get to where you want to be but now the cosmos is asking you to step back to survey the big picture. You may need to adjust your ideas to fit the vision of what was, what is and what will be. Have faith in the future because the future is now!

“I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.” William Allen White

Jupiter sextile Chiron – Everyone can benefit from a mentor from time to time. This aspect is about being open to learning from others, being willing to listen to the stories of elders and being able to understand a different point of view. Educate yourself to bridge any divide between you and another. With Jupiter still in orb of a trine to Pluto, the lessons you learn today are powerful.

Thursday 8th December 2011
Mercury conjunct Fortuna in Sagittarius – The words of a true visionary have the power to change everything.

“Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.” Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho is my visionary. For me he is someone who perfectly expresses what my soul knows to be true. I remember reading the Alchemist and reading descriptions of dreams I had experienced years before. I had to oddest sense that the story was written just for me. Of course it wasn’t (!) but that is how his writing makes me feel. But we are all following our own paths. What may be true for me might not be true for you. Who is your visionary?

Friday 9th December 2011
Moon in Gemini opposite Mercury, quincunx Pluto. Words carry power. Be cautious of black and white thinking, all or nothing, do or die. Speak kindly to yourself as well as others.

Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.” –Buddha

Saturday 10th December 2011
Today is a powerful day as Uranus stations direct and we also experience a Lunar eclipse. Uranus is sitting on the Aries point at 00Ari38. If ever there was a wake up all, this is it. With all the talk about the Euro possibly collapsing entirely, Uranus is ushering in a new era of change, rebellion and uprising. On a personal level, with the lunar eclipse in Gemini, it’s about letting your voice be heard.

During the retrograde period, you may have found yourself asking why? Why me? Why this? As Uranus stations direct, it’s important to tune in to find the answers you are looking for. Listen carefully because Uranus rules intuitive flashes. As I said in my post on the eclipse, “The wisdom you seek is already there”.

Sunday 11th December 2011
Jupiter conjunct Black Moon Lilith – Take charge of your future. Cast out old ghosts that haunt your dreams of a better life. You are wild. You are powerful. You are wise.

  1. My primary visionary is La Senora Guadalupe, next is Jos. Campbell, EdgarCayce, Paramahansa Yoganda,…Buddha, Yshie Zogal, many others too. Pisces, so ………….sure you can fill in the blanks.

  2. Hi Mary – thanks for sharing! I’ve never heard of La Senenora Guadalupe but I will look her up now. Joseph Campbell and Edgar Cayce were both amazing. You are right, there are many visionary people who have blessed us.

  3. You don’t have to look her up. She is the Mx. version of the Mother of Jesus. She’s been my patron saint since I was 8yrs. old and read the story of Juan Diego, the INDIAN to whom she appeared. She told me that the US was not safe for me way back in the 90’s when we had that rat-faced Delay Feith, and the rest of the FASCISTS. I’m very, very, outspoken (mercury in Aquarius) PROGRESSIVE.
    Read the story of Juan Diego, and the MF, FASCIST, PEDOPHILIC, Catholic Church

  4. Ah yes, thank you Mary. I just read a little about him. It is wonderful that you felt her presence and guidence.
    I’m quite outspoken myself – Mercury in Aries 🙂

  5. She is very much a living person to me. I think the changes that the Earth is now going thru are meant to awaken us all from this Virtual Reality which is not ‘real’ at all, and tho now Buddhist, I think Jesus was a great enlightened boddisatva. He said, ‘These things I do, you also, will do.’

  6. Tried your email, but it got sent back. I closed my fb page because the US spy programs are now manipulating ‘social’ networks.

  7. Hi Mary – I’m sorry to hear your email to me bounced. My email is working and I just sent myself a test mail just to make sure. You can also try my hotmail account which is whitehorse_dreams’AT’ hotmail.com
