December 20 the Sun is on the last “critical degree” of Sagittarius. In Astrology it is not the 3rd degree but the 29th, actually 30th, anaretic degree of any sign which is considered to be the most powerful.

We are summing up this last seasonal quarter. Its good to look back to assess what has happened, to take some time to integrate, take a breath and pause before stepping into the Winter/Summer Solstice depending on whether you live North or South of the Equator. It’s a very powerful turning point in the year. It has been a long autumn fraught with much emotion divisiveness and stress because of the U.S. election. Now that it seems final that Trump will be the next president of the U.S. we can stop and figure out the next plan.
The Moon is in Virgo today making us feel practical grounded, nit-picky and worried. It has already made its aspects by square to Saturn inconjunct to Uranus and opposite Chiron in Pisces.
Moon squares Sun we are 1/2 way to the next Lunation a NEW MOON Dec 28/29 in Capricorn.
we are 1/2 way to the next Lunation a NEW MOON Dec 28/29 in Capricorn.
MOON enters lovely Libra at 6:40 pm PST/9:40 pm EST/Dec 21 @ 2:40 am GMT
nice to have the Moon in Libra on a Solstice as it is also a CARDINAL sign
Moon inconjuncts MARS IN PISCES later tonight in PST only tomorrow in EST/GMT etc
Even Libra Moon can offend someone with such heightened empathic sensibilities.
Take time to write out what you have accomplished over the last season.
The 29th degree of SAGITTARIUS carries a powerful symbol. From John Sandbach
“By time traveling, a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired
(Degree Angel Name: Nithael (NIT-ha-EL) The Death of Death, Rejuvenation and Eternal Youth)
So deep the roots of karma, and sometimes when it is only cleared on surface levels it can grow back and then we find ourselves once again in an old pattern. This degree has an instinct for going deep into the self or any problem or complex of circumstances to really contact the source of it. This can give a whole new perspective on reality, and eventually loosen the energetic knot that has bound us.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “The completion of a large Persian rug.” It is a joy to come to the end of a long, arduous task, and the truth is, every minute of our lives is just that – the completion of a process that has been going on so long that its beginnings are far beyond memory’s normal capacity. This degree carries the precious truth that every moment is complete in and of itself, and is full of the richness and abundance of a grand and tremendous history. It personifies cosmic perspective carried to the most glorious and nth extent.
Pleiadian Symbol: A man in a tall hat is reading omens in the smoke from an altar.
Azoth Symbol: People sleeping as they travel near the speed of light.
Seed degree: 27 Pisces. A spider searching its web. (Omega Symbol). By looking at what we have drawn to ourselves karmically we can perceive the depths of our own past.
A ritual sand painting. (Chandra Symbol). When we let go of attachments to permanence, we are able to do what we need to do and finish what we have started.
Fulfillment degree: 23 Virgo. A library is burning. A man therein continues to read. (Omega Symbol). When we sense the vast chain of events of which we are a part, we attain eventually an unshakable patience.
Giant cacti blooming in the desert. (Chandra Symbol). The finishing of long and arduous projects brings a reawakening of life in the midst of bleakness.
Yep that about sums it up I’d say. Let me know what you think. I’m writing about solstice just after this.
