Check Your Chart, for the Weeks of 19 and 26 December 2022
by John Rutherford, Astrologer. Reading Your Horoscope since 1971.
The Full Moon swallowed Anger and Hate so deeply, it lit a spark of Hope for the Future (eg., Nuclear Fusion for Power). Last week, a leaky boat (e.g., the ISS, and the Berlin aquarium) was cast adrift on a Sea of Despair and Regret (Loser Rage). The New Moon will need Helping Hands for the coming Big Changes (Sun square Jupiter).
This week: Monday, kinda wandering, distant, sticking with personal interests. Tuesday, is there something important that’s a problem if missed or way overdue? Wednesday is the time to move on, even if slowly and creaky. Thursday, what, a smack of puzzles or conundrums? Satisfied and settled, once you get some help. Friday gotta do what gets noticed. Saturday, what a mouthy, uh, attention grabber. Sunday, yeah, some are just that pompous and cold.
Nota Bene: As insects fly, their wings attractions from the air. This helps bees gather pollen, for example. Put a zillion in the Sky and they can, and do, change the weather.
All Planetary Aspect energies build up several hours before (for the swift) to a few days before (for the slow), as they approach. The Moon triggers within 2 hours.
Like Astrology, CYC is complicated, and cannot be explained in a page or two. Exceptions, depending on the context, can apply. Contact me for Your Natal Horoscope and a reading.
This week: Big Shifts are in the works. How long will it take to percolate down to the Personal Level? Not this year. Monday dabbles and babbles late. Tuesday stays locked in the ‘park’. Wednesday is poised to vigorously shake the tree, but ready hands are hard to find, scratching personal itches through Thursday. Friday’s New Moon could be great for a gathering, if only they had the energy, or knew where to go Saturday. The ‘holy day’ is stifled and cramped if too many show up. Besides, the Moon is Up Tight, with some energetic vibes late.
Wednesday – Friday, 21-23 December. (Moon comfy if left alone in Sagittarius, New Moon disgruntled in Capricorn. The Sun in Capricorn squares Jupiter in Aries and semi-square Uranus in Taurus. Venus in Capricorn trine Uranus. The Sun also has hard aspects Mercury / Mars and soft aspects Mars Neptune. 0-1 degrees and 15-16 degrees of All Signs)
This looks like a pot ready to boil over on a stove cranked high. Someone is begging, is ready to rage, to make a disturbance. If only they could listen to themselves, but they can’t, you see. So it has to be projected, sadly. This is a Call-Up for Community Control, like 911. Send help.
Saturday, 24 December. (Moon frittering and sputtering at petty things in Capricorn. Mercury in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces. 22 degrees and 7 degrees of All Signs)
Be very careful you don’t say, or give away, the wrong thing. If you are still jumping and jiving in Party Mode, you are trying too hard, and trying other people’s patience. Quiet chill.
Sunday, Christ’s Mass. (Moon coasting till a late scramble in Aquarius. The Sun in Capricorn hard aspects Saturn / Uranus. 3 Cardinal, 18 Fixed)
“I said, have a good time, dammit!” Yeah, like that’ll help. Keep it small.
Next week: Boxing Day, the only one of the weekends to get anything done, even if it’s just chores and cleaning up. Tuesday needs extra Personal Attention, even if, especially when hurt. Wednesday, a heavy hangover from Monday’s ‘drag’. And, if nothing makes sense, you got Mercury’s stationery just about right. So, for Thursday’s puzzle, why does it have to take helping hands away? New Year’s Eve? Hardly into Party Mode. Party of one or two? New Year’s Day, is finally good for a bit of a gathering, with an extra bit of nonsense.
Monday, 26 December. (Moon either fully directed, or at a full stop, in Aquarius. The Sun in Capricorn soft aspects Mars / Jupiter. 5 Cardinal, 20 Fixed)
If you can get going, easy-peasy. If ya can’t, kinda the same thing.
Wednesday, 28 December. (Moon ruminating over loves, some lost, in Pisces. Venus in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces. 22 degrees and 7 degrees of All Signs)
Here comes a load of If Only, and What Could Have Been. With what’s next, stop wallowing, it is finally time to put many of those things to rest.
(the Sun in Capricorn hard aspects Saturn in Aquarius, soft aspects Saturn / Neptune. 7 Cardinal, 22 Fixed)
You can only carry an impossible burden for so long, then it’s time to drop it. This will take at least a month or two before you finally know it’s done.
Thursday, 29 December. (Moon wants so much more in Aries. Venus, hard aspecting Mars in Gemini, aligns with Mercury stationery in Capricorn. 24 Cardinal, 9 Mutable)
The desire and the want/need are there, but the hand stops the reaching or giving in mid-grasp! What the… ? What a sad snag to those suddenly muffled. Poor, lonely, hurt baby.
(The Sun in Capricorn hard aspects stationary Mercury turning retrograde / Neptune. 8 Cardinal, 23 Fixed)
Suddenly, those full of care and sentiment turn deaf and slam the door. For what reason? Nobody’s saying, even if they could. Tortured silence.
Saturday, New Year’s Eve. (Moon by herself in Aries. The Sun in Capricorn’s hard aspects Venus aligned with Pluto / Neptune. 9 Cardinal, 24 Fixed)
“I want to be alone.” Whether you want to, or not, you got it. Neglected. Or, very private. Not a real party night.
Sunday, 1 January. (Moon flippant, silly in Taurus. Retrograde Mercury sextile Neptune in Pisces. 22 degrees and 7 degrees of All Signs)
Like trying to track something in a snowstorm. Bafflegab and worse intentions cloud the Sky. This is obfuscated on purpose.
Is your Number up? Check Your Four Personal Points for every day (see below). If the numbers match, this day is meant for you!
Each forecast shows the Moon Sign, the Planetary Aspect, and Number of degrees in Signs for the Planetary Aspect.
The Moon Sign is the Sign the Moon is in for that day. The Moon Sign gives an advantage to the Sign it is in, puts extra pressure on the opposite Sign, and tends to cross up or neutralize the Signs at right angles. For example, with Fixed Signs, if the Moon is in Taurus, Taurus has the advantage, Scorpio gets challenged, and Leo and Aquarius get shifted or crossed up.
The Planetary Aspect is where the action is released. It’s the Excuse. Unlike daily Horoscopes that suggest each day has the same level of influence, this is the core of changes in the daily energies.
The Sign Numbers are the degrees in the Signs of the Zodiac being emphasized. If the degree for any day is close to any degree of Your Four Personal Points (see below), within a degree or so, THIS IS YOUR DAY. Pay extra ATTENTION.
You may have several days in the week activated, or you may have none. As a degree hits one of Your Four Personal Points, the forecast tells about the important things in your life. The daily forecasts tell you when. The overall story comes through over time. Sooner or later, the degrees of the Forecast catch up to all Your Points.
Your Four Personal Points are, in order of importance:
The Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Moon, and the Sun. These are the most important points of your Horoscope, calculated from your birth date, your birth place, and the time of day you drew your first breath.
The first two Personal Points, the Ascendant and Mid-heaven, are the points that fix the Earth in space for your birth time at your specific birthplace. We live on the Earth, not the Sun or the Moon.
The Ascendant also called Your Rising Sign, is more critical than your Sun Sign.
Simply, and generally, only, forecasts that affect your:
Ascendant relate to matters in your environment. Use it to see what’s in front of you.
Mid-heaven relate to matters in your personal life. Use it to see what’s in your mind.
Moon relate to matters in your emotional life. Use it to see what’s in your heart.
Sun relate to matters in your physical life. Use it to see what’s in your core.
The Signs of the Zodiac are:
Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius)
Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)
Heaven, Help Us! The forecast is the mood of the moment.
When it rains, we all get wet, no matter what “Sign” we are.
