‘Tis Definitely the Season to Be Jolly
By far the most dominant astrological influence on Christmas 2011 is the planet most associated with Santa—big, benevolent, extravagant, lucky, ho-ho-ho Jupiter.
Because of an astrological effect called “stationing,” which occurs when a planet is switching from retrograde to forward motion, or back, Jupiter will seem to stand still in the sky beginning Friday, December 23 through the 27th, when it begins to move forward for the first time in several months. This standing still amps up a planet’s effect by an order of magnitude and, in Jupiter’s case, it’s the more the merrier.
To add to the celebration, Jupiter is all cozied up in a friendly, cooperative sextile aspect with the Sun-Moon conjunction, which marks the New Moon at 1:06 pm EST and 10:06 am PST on Christmas Eve.
The net effect of the fresh beginning symbolized by the New Moon and Jupiter’s powerful influence will be a swell of positive feelings—a resurgence of hope, peace and goodwill—that have been sorely lacking in recent months. Even restrictive Saturn has a positive relationship with the New Moon and a stabilizing effect on the Jupiter all-out party mood.
Don’t waste a minute of this holiday gift! Entertain big dreams and extravagant plans, and be generous physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, because what you give out at a time like this truly does return to you a thousandfold. What you invest now could provide a welcome return in the coming year.
Capricorn – If you can relax your natural reserve just a tiny bit and indulge your creative, joyful inner kid, it should pay off hugely, both in surprising emotional and spiritual terms, and in the more earthly, material areas which are your normal focus.
Aquarius – Your rational mind may not be your usual mainstay this Christmas. Instead, powerful forces are erupting from your subconscious to pull you into a direct, emotional, and healing experience of what your desire to serve humanity really means.
Pisces – Your emotional and spiritual wounds may be visible to everyone this Christmas, but so will the deeply grounded wisdom which you’ve gained from them. Every positive, hopeful word you write or say will change the future.
Aries – This is the year to indulge your Inner Santa! You may still be blowing peoples’ minds with radical ideas or personal changes, but you are also so full of abundant impulses that, if you follow your ideals, you can bless all the lives you touch.
Taurus – This year you are Santa! This Christmas’ powerful Jupiter influence is in your sign, and that makes you a channel for all that wonderful, generous, abundant energy. And it also pretty much guarantees some mighty tantalizing instant rewards.
Gemini – Skating over the surface probably won’t even interest you this year, because your mind and heart are so full of spiritual insights and creative, original ways to make your ideas into reality. Even cranky household members work to your benefit.
Cancer – Spouses, partners, friends and family will relish every nurturing impulse you lavish on them this year, and return the favor. Every loving Christmas task, from making cookies to decorating to gift giving, blesses the receiver… and the giver.
Leo – Santa will probably be giving you some kind of career boost this Christmas, while other season’s blessings will creep into your life more subtly and quietly. If you act on, talk about or write about what emerges, it will help make it a reality.
Virgo – Like your friend Leo, you are invited to apply your energy and creativity to a concrete expression of your spiritual beliefs. You may not usually see yourself as a person of action, but right now you can make the world a better place.
Libra – Your grace and charm can work real magic on your surroundings, even more powerfully than usual. Beauty can heal, and your creative gifts and empathic abilities could allow necessary change in relationships to unfold with ease and grace.
Scorpio – Your words and creations have world-changing power this season. Even if you don’t consider yourself creative, write down or otherwise express what you’re feeling. A love affair could ignite a transforming spiritual fire.
Sagittarius – Your gift for expressing philosophical truths makes you the spokesperson for this Christmas’ outrageously expansive possibilities. What comes out of your mouth or pen may surprise even you, while quiet blessings transform where you live.
In short, eat, drink and be very merry, because on New Year’s Day it’s back to the transformational grindstone with a vengeance!
