Forecast for Dec. 31, 2012 – Jan. 6, 2013

2012 goes out with a bang that propels us though the first week of 2013.

Though it has a component of the unforeseeable, the last aspect of the year is completely in keeping with the evolutionary impulses that have rocked and reshaped our world. It invites and actually motivates us to get on board with them and run headlong into the bold new direction they have been pushing us.

It’s time for consciously breaking with old paradigms and patterns, taking daring, unconventional, individualistic tacts and pouncing on opportunities to live more freely and in keeping with your true self. The chance to do this may present itself well before the first hors d’oeuvres tray is passed around Monday.

Even if it doesn’t, the drive to pull it off will be escalating all the same. It’s the rocket fuel that shoots us into New Year’s. Serve Hoppin’ John or plain ol’ black-eyed peas if you like, but throw in a side of spinach, too, as sympathetic magic to invoke Popeye’s super power.

The drive scurries us along till Friday, when it kicks into high gear, possibly a higher one than you normally use. Developments zoom over the weekend; if this doesn’t translate into actual outer events and messages, it will certainly affect your thoughts and motivations. You’re setting the tone for the year. Within this first week it will be clear how different, bold and daring your approach — and your experience — are going to be.

Bravado and gumption abound, so help yourself and have fun. Shoot high and reach for outrageously; both’ll be easy. The vibe encourages small efforts to blossom into bigger projects than intended, or produce far more than expected.

Your ability to turn thoughts into action is hitting a new level of effectiveness, too. For one thing, you are not at cross-purposes with or sabotaging yourself (always a plus). For another, you’re witnessing a surge of what’s called manifesting. Take care with the words and phrases that loiter in your mind; they’re creating your mental filter and also inviting in concrete expression of them. Play this week with the concept that everything you’re thinking, saying and projecting is setting up the year.

Dream big; dream bigger; dream outrageously, even, and especially, if you think something is ridiculously out of the question. (No involving other people’s names; that’ll put the kibosh on your intentions but good.) Try this Abraham-Hicks technique: saying “Wouldn’t it be fun if” and following it with all manner of wild and happy-making wishes. Whether they come about isn’t the point. Stretching your concept of what’s possible is, and that is a gloriously appropriate exercise for launching this year.

Even so, your dreams and druthers aren’t apt to be trivial. Communication and thoughts are zeroing in on what’s most important to you. It’s clear what needs to be left behind, or has already departed. Information comes that supports the stabilizing that’s been going on since last week. (A refresher on that is in last week’s forecast.) By the end of the weekend, you have broader targets, a clearer view of where you are and a revised and strengthened will to continue on that evolutionary path.

Here’s the underlying astrology:

Messenger god Mercury moves into Capricorn on Monday. This not only moves thinking, information and communication into the realm of the concrete and practical, but it also sends our communication and transportation systems down a gauntlet of major contacts to the cosmic change agents Uranus and Pluto. We’re in for mental fine-tuning, breakdown of worn out technology and vehicles (sorry), and lots of information about ongoing imperative for evolutionary change.

The aspect that propels us from one year to the next is a cooperative link between Mars, planet of action, and Uranus, the awakener, the rebel, the proponent of alternate viewpoints and lobber of lightning bolts, bricks and Molotov cocktails. These two are in each other’s houses, or in mutual reception, which ramps up the call to rebellion that they embody.

Their link sets off the long-standing, evolution-demanding clash that Uranus is having with Pluto, the other cosmic change agent (of the unavoidable and life,-death-and rebirth variety). The aspect also opens a release valve for the pressure that bore down on Uranus during last Friday’s Full Moon. We won’t be resisting change; we’ll be lunging for it the instant the starting gun goes off, Monday.

That impulse swells and swells when Mars hits Jupiter (theme song: “More, More, More”) on Wednesday. Thursday, monkey wrenches, lightning bolts and startling news rain down when Mercury slams into Uranus and changes in plans and thinking ensue.

On Sunday, he and Mercury do-so-si with each other and Pluto. Mercury also has a spin with Saturn, whom Mars is preparing to confront at the beginning of next week. Some of the day’s news may be sobering. Some may dispatch parts of your life to the past or drive home how much you have changed. Some may challenge you to put on your big-girl/big-boy pants on; some may make you actually want to do that.

No matter what the content, messages and realizations have the potential for grounding and stabilizing you and your sense of safety and security, and for inspiring responsibility and commitment. Not coincidentally, Sunday is the holy day known as Epiphany (Twelfth Night). Welcome it in.
