Weekly General Astrology Forecast December 24th 2018
Kick-start those new year plans!
Ideas are like a ray of light – illuminating the future
We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams
Hooray! Mercury finally moves out of Retrograde Shadow on December 24 giving all of us an opportunity to kick-start those New Year plans the moment the holidays are over.
Don’t wait for the calendar to change, start the changes now. We may have the inspiration now when it comes to our ideas but we will all need to make that extra effort to make the most of them. It will be all too easy to get lost in the idea of the idea – or what we will do when the idea comes to fruition, that we lose the momentum and end up doing nothing.
Mercury in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces can deliver us ideas like a ray of light – perhaps enhanced by that season of goodwill towards all feeling. Don’t just sit around enjoying the fantasy about how you believe 2019 will unfold, take the steps to make it reality. However, beware of beautiful illusions! Mercury square Neptune adds a dash of mystery but quite possibly a final dose of communication mayhem!
If you feel that you don’t understand WTF what is going on then come from your heart chakra, avoid adding to the fogginess and wait it out.
There are inspired thoughts and the more inspired the thought – all the more reason to act on it. As we head at a gallop towards the year’s end Mars meets Chiron in the sign of the dreamer of dreams, Pisces. Chiron was not just a centaur but also a musician.
Mars in Pisces is in spiritual warrior mode but it is after all, the planet of action. So, we may all get the nudge we need to make some music by taking action on those dreams. The quote ‘We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams’ actually comes from a poem called ‘Ode’ written by English poet Arthur O’Shaughnessey. He was born under the sign of – guess what? Pisces – Neptune’s ruling sign.
It’s a wonderful and very therefore Piscean poem, that describes the creative process. How inspiration comes to us – often when alone or even at a low ebb. But how our ideas have the capacity to change our world.
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
So, dream a little, make some music and then act on those ideas. Become a mover and a shaker this week.
In a nutshell: The holiday season turns us into the dreamers of wonderful dreams. But don’t get lost in the idea. Become a game-changer and creator by taking action on your ideas.
Oh, and Venus makes a lovely sextile to radical Pluto on the 28th too. Expect some interesting erotic shenanigans, a shift in your understanding of love or an awakening of some kind!
