The AstroVibe - Early December 2021 Astrological Update

The astrological energy for December 2021 will bring interesting energy.

The rebel Uranus is interacting with several planets and asteroids this month. This will shake things up.

Neptune is stationing direct in its rulership of Pisces. This will either inspire your dreams or have you escaping into them.

One of the biggest events is the new moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius.

There are tough aspects around Christmas, which should make this an interesting holiday.

There will be more on that energy in my next blog!

Neptune Stations Direct

Neptune has been in retrograde in Pisces since June 25, 2021. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces. Their energy is similar.

They both represent beliefs, spirituality, creativity, imagination, and illusions. At its lower vibration it represents cloudiness, deception, and lack of clarity.

The retrograde energy had us turning inward. We were encouraged to look at our beliefs around our spirituality and our creativity.

Are you able to outwardly express your spiritual beliefs? Are you afraid to do so?

What illusions do you hold about how you express your creativity to the world? Are you able to fully reveal it without fear? What has been holding you back?

As Neptune stations direct, you will have more clarity. You will see through the illusions that have been holding you back.

You will see the truth of your own spirituality. You will see the power of your creativity and how to express it to the world.

There is a sense of acceptance and surrender as you recognize what is not in your power change. You will have the clarity to know what you can.

Use this insight to move forward and make the visions and dreams for your life a reality.

If you had chosen to avoid tuning into your patterns and behaviors during the retrograde. If you pushed away your subconscious thoughts, you will feel confused and unclear.

This will feel more intense with the Mercury and Pallas square. The energy of this square is that of mental tension. You will feel disorganized. Communication will be difficult.

New Moon Full Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius

In the days leading up to the new moon full solar eclipse the fog will continue to clear. You will feel energized to work hard.

Solar eclipses often bring exciting new beginnings, twists of fate and unexpected information. The eclipse will impact everyone in a different way.

If it interacts with planets in your natal chart, you may feel it more intensely than those around you.

This is the last eclipse to occur in the Gemini-Sagittarius axis. The first eclipse to occur along this axis was on June 5, 2020.

Gemini represents the logical mind. It lacks the urge to discover the truth. Sagittarius represents the more intuitive mind. This sign is driven to seek the truth.

What themes came up for you during this time period? Did you rely too much on “facts” and not your intuition? Do you accept what you are presented with as the truth? Do you trust your intuition? Do you search for a deeper understanding?

This is the last South Node solar eclipse in Sagittarius for 18 years. The South Node is associated with the default patterns that you have from earlier in life or prior lives.

It is often where we bring in lessons from prior lives that we still need to learn. We also bring in the gifts and talents that we have developed through our South Node.
