As it happened with Mercury’s retrograde station a few days ago, Saturn is leaving his mark all over the upcoming Sagittarius’ New Moon (arriving on December 18, 26°31, 6:30 PM UTC), right before he leaves the sign of the archer to come home to Capricorn.
A New Moon in itself is an energetic doorway that allows us to break ground for new cycles from within, a time for spiritual and emotional reboot. A moment for envisioning, seeding, incubating, setting intentions, a fresh start. Even more so when happening around the Winter Solstice, with the year coming to a close, and a new one right around the corner.

Scorpio speaks a different language than Libra altogether; the wordless, subtle yet visceral idiom of feelings and impulses.
Anchored in our human form, yet informed (and haunted) by the awareness of what awaits us beyond its decay, survival instinct in particular is one of the main driving forces that move Scorpio – together with the mysterious, irrepressible urge to sting itself to death in order to revive anew.

If there’s something wounded healer Chiron can teach us, is that healing is not a straight, upward path, nor a contest, or an endgoal. The highly eccentric orbit of this minor comet-like planet, its highly unstable motion, are symbolic of the discontinuous route taken by this beautiful, torturous process.

Full Moon in Gemini, December 3, 2017 – Voices

There is a transient, nebulous, even paradoxical quality about the Full Moon arriving on December 3, at 3:47 PM UTC, 11 degrees 40 minutes of the sign of Gemini.
Hitting us with the tidal intensity of a supermoon, this plenilune, however, also occurs while its dispositor, Mercury, turns to a halt in the sign of his detriment. Moreover, the moment of impact is also furtherly toned down by a hazy square from the master of deception Neptune, while a quincunx to Jupiter fearlessly reveling in the occult covertness of Scorpio dims the moonlight beams with a veil of secrecy and mystery.

Mercury stations Retrograde in Sagittarius, December 3, 2017 – In Tongues

I feel that the upcoming Retrograde cycle of Mercury is Saturn‘s way of bidding farewell to Sagittarius after two years of transit through the sign – like a cautionary reminder that a chapter of our life is coming to a close as a new era knocks at our door, and yet the way we move through this transition at the present time can affect us in the years to come.
