Horoscope for the week beginning December 14
Tip of the Week
We are now in the final countdown to Winter Solstice 2012. Era 2012 encompasses a wider sweep of time which will actually surpass the 12-21-2012 date by several years, perhaps as much as a decade. Remember, the time frame we are referring to, 36-42 years, must be understood to be in the context of the entire Precessional Cycle (also called the ‘Great Year’) which is somewhere between 25,625 and 26,000 years. This is why the Winter Solstice 2012 date is symbolic; it is the closest annual cycle of the Sun, the Solar Year which starts on Winter Solstice, to all the other calendars in Mayan Cosmology which have already come to term.
We may liken Era 2012 to a dimmer switch process with the room getting steadily brighter and Winter Solstice to be like a light switch. Yet, those who look to the 12-21-2012 in literal terms regarding specific events that must occur on that day, lest the entire story that emphasizes this date be rendered bogus, reveal a fine weave of ignorance, cynicism, literalism and myopic vision. As mentioned last week, the world we knew has most definitely changed and continues to do so at a very rapid rate, what has been called, ‘The Quickening’. How much do you suppose it will change in the next decade? Perhaps this accelerated phase of modern civilization emerging into a global village is the way in which we are meant to experience the end of the ‘old world’ and the beginning of the new. It should be mentioned that some have said that the predicted Earth changes would not so much occur prior to 12-21-2012, but is the months and years relatively soon thereafter. With the last New Moon of the year and of the Great Year as of December 13, the final countdown has begun. PS – The exact time for Winter Solstice 2012 is 11:11 am, Greenwich UK time!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Your mood is getting lighter. Perhaps it is the season or something deeper or much bigger… either way it is evident. It may even be felt as a big ‘turn-on’ somehow. And your ambitions are being spurred. This charge of energy will likely be expressed literally. Be careful you do not overwhelm or intimidate others with this surge of enthusiasm and power.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
Tapping the resources of others in order to be able to keep pace with a wide array of interests and duties demanding you time is likely now. Who has what you want and need? This is a time when respective passions are meeting, converging and merging. With so much to share and to access your main challenge stands to be managing your time effectively.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
A good deal of stimulating encounters is keeping you occupied and this trend will continue. As exciting as this likely is, a need to be patient is also lingering. This is an important time of learning for you. Some form of apprenticeship is very possible and ideal. Whether formal or informal, be a good student and learn from every situation and person you encounter.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A process of learning trust and faith in yourself and the world in general continues. This is a call to accept and embrace change. What once was cannot and will no longer be. This process has been steadily and rapidly underway for the past couple of years. It remains important that you be at your best every day, so this is not the time for yesterday.
Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
Some very promising signs are being revealed for you now. If you are paying attention and trusting that life communicates, then you are aware of the significant scope of messages coming in. Take note of these and set clear intentions to follow through. As you do, your inner self will recognize that you are listening and your most important relationship of all will deepen.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Some big shifts close to home and in your professional life are shaking you awake. Invariably, these play on one another. The time is right to lay the plans to take some very calculated and deliberate risks. Proactive people make lemonade when they get lemons. Fortunes are made out of apparent mistakes, accidents, struggles and failures. Be proactive!
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
You have passed through a dark night. Now the dawn of a new day is here. There remain things you must do; payments that are due and new dreams to pursue. Surrendering within implies a willingness to cooperate within and without. We are the vehicles of our soul and wisdom asks us to yield to the directives and steering of the driver, within. This is classically called intuition.
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
Forward ahead into the future is the call now. To do so while remaining present in the moment is the sign of an awakened mind. Yet deciphering which is your best direction requires a subtler activation of discernment. Fortunately, your energy levels are running high to support the process. Exercise your beginner’s mind now and be alert to assumptive thinking.
Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
A pioneering and expansive cycle continues – perfectly tailored for you. Yet, entering new territory does not always imply geography. As multi-dimensional beings, we can enter inner spaces and states. Imagination and intuition are your steeds. These are leading you to move beyond old values, priorities and appetites and the life style patterns that support them.
Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
Stepping out of the lime light for a while is the call now. It is the season to rest, reflect, rejuvenate, visit and spend quality time beyond duty and official roles. Give yourself the gift of reigning in your lower mind and restrict it from lingering longer with your imagination than is healthy. Negatively, together they produce worry. Take time out to enjoy!
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
A refreshing mini cycle has begun for you. Like a break in the weather during a steep climb, you are wise to make the most of it. That means reach out and be social. Fill your tanks now so you have plenty of fuel to see you through to February. Sometimes it is good to escape, but this is not such a time. Make meaningful connections.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Getting the attention you feel you want and deserve is a current focus. A learning curve is implied. Perhaps you need to increase your social media skills or learn how to ask for a raise. Either way, it is important that you be pro-active and give to the situation. Your confidence levels should be rising steadily these days so ride that wave!
