Secrecy, power and spiritual transformation lead you to the depths of your soul this month. You may experience moments of unpleasantness as you face hidden issues about trust and ethics. However, you have untapped resources that require a journey to the shadows of your psyche for extraction so you can bring them into the light. Cryptic Pluto, the mythological Lord of the Underworld, is stirring in the lair of your 12th House of Soul Consciousness to awaken desires and expose fears.
On December 20, visionary Jupiter makes its second quincunx to Pluto -- the first was July 18 and the last is March 29, 2013 -- forcing you to edit your expectations. It's wise to make minor adjustments now to avoid major losses later. Fortunately, reliable Saturn forms a competent sextile with incisive Pluto on December 26 to concentrate your focus and get you back on course for the New Year.
Eliminating unrewarding projects and patterns frees you to open yourself to the fresh ideas inspired by capricious Uranus's forward shift on December 13. Your sights are also raised by the inspirational Sagittarius New Moon in your 11th House of Hopes and Wishes. Empowering Mars provides further momentum for change when he moves into nonconformist Aquarius on December 25.
Still, ambition is best managed prudently as the Sun enters traditional Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice on December 21. Work-related matters may be dramatized by the security-conscious Cancer Full Moon in your 6th House of Employment on December 28. The Moon's opposition to provocative Pluto and its square with irrepressible Uranus foments restlessness, perhaps even chaos. Nevertheless, the Full Moon trines stable Saturn, supplying a balance of reason to keep things from going completely off the rails.
Keep in Mind this Month
Looking into your heart of darkness is not a ticket to despair, but rather a passport to a brighter future where you can put your talents to use.
Key Dates for Aquarius
December 7: Sudden chemistry
Your threshold of boredom is very low today, and your desire for new forms of pleasure high as indulgent Venus in passionate Scorpio aspects unorthodox Uranus. Attraction to an unusual individual or activity can be risky, but you find it hard to resist. Adding spice to your relationship life by doing something completely new is one way to keep things fresh.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
December 25 - 26: Rebel with a cause
Sparkplug Mars enters independent Aquarius on December 25 to prod you into action. Keep it cool and kind, though, because an anti-authoritarian Sun-Uranus square can set off a charge of rebellion in you that shocks other people. It's appropriate to start new traditions as long as you don't suddenly cast all the old ones away. Helpfully, sturdy Saturn's savvy sextile with regenerative Pluto on December 26 is effective for deep healing and transformation. This empowering aspect recurs on March 8 and September 21, 2013, giving you time to firm up your resolve and develop the resources you need to achieve your goals.
