Let’s see where the visible planets are:
VENUS and MERCURY
Venus and Mercury have just recently become visible in the evening sky. Look for them just after
sunset. Venus, at 3Capricorn02, is by far the brighter with a magnitude of -3.9. Mercury at
8Capricorn17 is only a magnitude of -0.6. Mercury is 5-6 degrees to the upper left of Venus. With each
passing day, they rise higher and brighter.
Mars, the major story these past days, remains really bright as he’s in retrograde motion near Aldebaran
in the Bull constellation. At 14Gemini27 with a magnitude of -1.7, Mars will conjunct with Aldebaran just
before Christmas. The red-orange planet cannot be missed, and dominates the night sky, even
Jupiter, blazes at magnitude -2.5 at 29Pisces23. High in the evening sky after sunset, he is found in the
Fish constellation nearly at the exact vernal equinox, which will be exact when he ingresses Aries again
on December 20. For more about Jupiter in Aries check out the recent webinar
and our comprehensive Jupiter Series
Saturn at 20Aquarius40 at magnitude -0.8, has been in the same general place for many months now –
between the Goat-fish and Water Bearer constellations. Saturn now sets in the West around 9:00pm.
SUN SQUARING NEPTUNE
Although not a rare aspect, as there are two squares (quadrature) each year, this is well worth being
aware of. The exact square is Wednesday December 14 at 9:10AM PST with Neptune at 22Pisces40
and the Sun at 22Sagittarius40. I always attribute a good three-day window for these kinds of aspects.
But what is most significant here is the relationship with the United States natal Mars square Neptune
aspect. The US Mars is 21Gemini22 and Neptune is 22Pisces25.
As you can see, this square directly activates the US configuration. Anticipate more confusion and
deception. Also, even greater bi-furcation is expected in every organization, family and country. I have
compassion for those who rely on the mainstream media, as well as just choosing only one alternative
source. I also have compassion for those without the time for adequate research. The advice here is to
not get caught up in the bi-furcation. Unless you do! And even if you do, Neptune counsels connection
with a higher source, a celestial source of Christos/Sophia, Love and Wisdom. With that comes a
Neptunian version of surrender, knowing that we are not in control, and the Universe is unfolding as it
should. This is not the same as spiritual bypassing, light polarization, or “light-washing.”
