Astrology for December 2014 – Life is Returning

Carl Boudreau has not yet posted anything for December 2014’s astrological outlook on his Facebook however for those of you who love his way of seeing things, he recently did an awesome interview which is chock-full of insights.

Sagittarius is my favourite sign (right after my own sign of  Aquarius, of course…). Traditionally, Sagittarius  is depicted as the centaur, the half-man, half-horse beast of Greek mythology who were known as prophets, powerful healers and astronomers full of ancient wisdom and learning. When I think of typical Sagittarius prophets, I automatically think of the likes of William Blake (Nov.28), Noam Chomsky (Dec.7), Norman Finkelstein (Dec.8), Arthur C. Clarke (Dec.16) and Frank Zappa (Dec.21).

What I really love about Sagittarius energy is that because of its ruling planet, Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, it brings in lots of very positive, progressively oriented energy.

Old Man Saturn, the planet of karma and restriction, has finally left Scorpio and has entered Sagittarius. (It’s not a coincidence that a plethora of sex abuse scandals suddenly broke out in the last few months particularly the ones involving Bill Cosby, acclaimed Canadian radio host Jian Ghomeshi, and the ongoing investigation involving pedophilia and the British Political Establishment. That’s classic Saturn in Scorpio for you.)

Classic Sagittarius energy is what Steve, who used to run the popular blog “Philosopher’s Stone UK”, did. He shut down Philosopher’s Stone UK and started up a new blog called “Phoenix is Risen”, taking a much more pro-active, positive  and progressive outlook which emphasizes possibilities and solutions instead of the usual fear-mongering and doom and gloom many conspiracy-theory websites unfortunately tout.

But now with Saturn and a whole group of other planets who have either already entered or are about to enter Sagittarius, one of the most positive, expansive places within the zodiac, it means one thing: things are going to start to look up for those of you who put in some effort. One of the things I learned when I spent time with First Nations Elders, they always hammered this one rule: The Spiritual world is always ready to help us but they can only help us halfway, they can only help those who decide to help themselves first.

November 2014 Astrological Outlook

(For those of you who want Carl Boudreau’s astrological outlook, here it is.)

November is looking like a Scorpio super-month on steroids.

With a whole host of planets, including Old Man Saturn, affecting the most intense of astrological signs it would seem, everyone is going to get a dose of *something* this month.  (I admit, I have my own astrological biases and Scorpio is NOT one of my favorite signs.)

It is represented as a Scorpion, it’s poisonous tail ready to strike anyone who touches it the wrong way. If you look at older astrological treatises from the Middle Ages and beyond, Scorpio can also be the Soaring Eagle in it’s more enlightened form (as seen on the Tarot card for the Wheel of Fortune)

Also the four creatures mentioned in the Book of Revelations in the Bible, the Man, the Eagle, the Lion and the Ox reading the Book of Destiny. The Sphinx sitting on top of the wheel is in reality a composite of all 4 creatures, face of a man, body of a lion, hindquarters of an ox and the wings of the eagle

 

or the seedy Lounge Lizard it it’s less-evolved form…

Astrological lore suggests that that there are more saints and sinners born under Scorpio which is in line with it’s reputation as the sign of extremes. Nothing is half-way, nothing is half-assed. It’s always everything or nothing. In it’s highest, purest and  most spiritual form, the Soaring Eagle becomes the Phoenix, who periodically dies to only rise out of it’s own ashes, stronger and more magnificent than ever. Because of this, many Scorpios are also known as very powerful healers since they understand, even subconsciously,  the secrets of self-renewal and self-regeneration.

It would seem that the many planets affecting Scorpio (and therefore wherever Scorpio sits in your chart) suggest that things are either going to be changed voluntarily on your part (and make it easier on yourself) or it’s going to be imposed on you, which is never easy.

Be kind to yourselves.
