Forecast for week of Dec. 9-15, 2013

This week serves up a cosmic hot pot, with volatile, norm-breaking mental activity and emotional developments that are escalating and gaining staying power. It’s a heated mix of spur-of-the-moment, freedom-loving impulses and inescapable, stabilizing or limiting factors.

The mental part promises to be all over the map. It could involve realizations, conversations, information you hear, read or stumble upon, and how you get about in the outside world. Anything’s possible, because the comic messenger is lighting matches with awakening, iconoclastic, unpredictable Uranus.

What plays out has an out-of-the-blue, erupting quality and energetic fire, from enthusiasm to excitement to anger.  It is also part of two processes that are already in play.

It’s hurrying along the updating you’re doing of your outlook on life, the mission that launched under last week’s Sagittarius New Moon. This phase has a significant unpremeditated component. Mercury and Uranus are firing up a speak-before-you-think vibe, which means you may realize what you think after you hear yourself voice it. This also bodes well for making organic changes easily in how you are approaching the holiday season. Watch how your plans shift this week from obligations into what you want. (Yes, someone might get angry, but the change will already have happened.)

A connection is also likely to the restructuring we’re all undergoing because of the ongoing clash between Uranus and Pluto, the agent of fundamental, unavoidable change. You may be able to see a connection to early November, when they last clashed, or June of last year, when they started their battle at the degree where Uranus and Mercury are linking now.  Data or decisions could come now that build on one of those times and spur you to liberation, self-actualization and/or taking a risk that’s extreme by your definition.

There are no take-backs, either, especially where emotions are concerned. Emotional developments are escalating, heightening the stakes, intensifying connections, stabilizing some and cutting others back. Bigger-is-better Jupiter is in an easy flow all week to Saturn and his love of structure and order. (Their contact, a harmonious trine, is exact on Thursday.)

Their teamwork is bringing containment, which is a bit of a paradox when water and emotions are involved. Think of what happens when you try to grab water (it sloshes through your fingers) or shove it into a tight space (it overflows) or a small container (it can splash out, and it feels really heavy).  Refrain from forcing, though, and water will find its own course, ultimately reshaping any land it crosses. As emotions and events do this week.

The Jupiter/Saturn link could promote committing to profound and nurturing depths of intimacy and sharing, or to safeguarding and increasing the return on your investment in any exchange. You could observe, or, perish forfend, engage in Gollum-like possession of a prized object, situation or resource. Family issues could turn into a tsunami, or ripen  into better connections than ever before, and/or escalate into extremely serious questions of mortality or inheritance. If you hear a “no” or hit a wall or closed door, consider it solid.

Whichever direction developments go — and they could involve your inner life as well as situations with other people — they’re staying put.  They’re leading us to stability in the midst of a deep, boundless ocean, much like putting down an anchor, or installing a buoy to mark the spot.

Look for that marker to come back into view next May, when Jupiter returns to the degree of his current aspect to Saturn. At the moment, you’re on the trail of the emotional flow from July, when Jupiter first linked with Saturn. You’re going back over emotional territory and picking up sustenance of some kind. What connection can you draw between how you were feeling last summer and the emotions cresting now?

We’re in the process of making final decisions. They will lock into place when we come back to this week’s marker, in May.
