Wednesday is the feast of Epiphany (Greek for “manifestation). Walking with the Three Astrologer Kings (world messengers) since Christmas, following a star (Sirius), seeking a newborn child, on January 6th, 12 days after Christmas, holding gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and the 12 signs, we discover the holy one.
The new year of 2016 begins Friday. Adding the numbers 2+1+6 equals nine (9). Nine signifies endings, completion, fulfillment and a major initiation (all year) into a new cycle of learning.
Monday, the 21st, at 8:48 pm (west coast time) the Sun enters Capricorn. The days before solstice (and Christmas) are days of quiet expectancy.
Wednesday, December 9, Pluto opposes Sirius (13 Capricorn/Cancer joining the US Sun, 12 Cancer).
The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter).
When we study and apply astrology in our daily lives, we are anchoring new Aquarian thinking. Study, application and use of astrology, understanding its language, builds the new world, the new culture and civilization.
Wednesday is quiet. Thursday is transformative, surprising, Friday is detailed, Saturday we seek balance, Sunday we remember to love more, Monday wounds appear, Tuesday we communicate about those wounds.
Saturn, the Dweller on the Threshold (one side) and the Angel of the Presence (the other side) can be interesting Halloween characters.
Wednesday and Thursday (21st, 22nd) are the last days of Libra. Friday, a very complex day, Sun enters Scorpio. During Scorpio we can expect the Nine Personality Tests, Scorpio’s emphasis on death and regeneration and its call to Discipleship.
This is our last week of Libra Sun. Libra prepares us for Scorpio. For the tests and trials of discipleship. Libra is the sign that oscillates up and down until we come to rest, to a state of contemplation, the meditation in Libra.
