This Week in Astrology a Nutshell

“Freedom is necessary for choice and choice is necessary for wisdom and growth. The sacred world of love and wisdom, fiery intelligence and passionate will, imagination and delight – is a world of freedom. But it is also binding and connecting.” David Spangler

“Genuinely loving people are, by definition, growing people.” M Scott Peck

We’re in between this season’s  eclipses now – the first was Monday Nov 30 at 8 degrees of Gemini  – a Lunar Eclipse and the second eclipse- a Solar Eclipse  is December 14 at 23 Sagittarius.

Eclipses are evolutionary in nature and their effects can be felt six weeks in advance as well as six weeks following the actual event.

This month’s eclipses – on the Gemini / Sagittarius axis have to do with the mind – how we think, what our philosophy of life is and how we broaden our horizons through learning something new or exploring new territory.

With the influence of the  Lunar Eclipse in Gemini it’s wise to look for missing links in information – things in our thinking that may have been eclipsed or not visible before.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius provides good timing to think about how you’d like to expand your life to provide for more growth, expansiveness and adventure.

Mercury will enter the sign of Sagittarius this week. This livens up the dark season heading towards the Solstice and ushers in a more sociable time.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “A bluebird, a sign of good luck and happiness, is standing at the door of the house.”
