December 2014 Forecast as told by Jahon Mikal
Sun in Sagittarius
The Sun sweeps through the high minded sign of Sagittarius for the first two thirds of the month of December. We’ll find ourselves fervent with the desire to expand our understanding of the bigger picture, turning largely to independent research. What we’ll discover will only be half as satisfying without others to share and compare, thus you may find yourself at a few more parties than usual. Be deliberate about where your time is spent and shoot straight to avoid having to explain why things you were responsible for were mishandled or neglected.
Mars enters the humanitarian sign of Aquarius right out of the December gate on the 4th. Things we are passionate about may take on a “heal the world” type slant, wanting to expand social circles and exchange intelligent yet often whimsical ideas realizing that there are some missions that are better done as a cooperating and well researched group.
48 hours later the moon rises full in the sign of Gemini urging us to say what we must, especially pertaining to romantic relationships. It’s the emotional playing field as told by the twins, trying to apply logical thought to a rather irrational aspect of ourselves, but alas these things must and will surface. It will be up to you how they are conveyed to others.
Like scrubbing the eraser over a poorly drawn pencil line, so is the start of the Jupiter retrograde on the 8th. Like Missy Elliott, Jupiter “flips it and reverses it” to remind us to think deeply about the fortune and opportunities we’ve been granted and to find better ways to utilize them. It may feel difficult to move forward with things that may have most recently seemed like a sure bet. This period of deep reflection on your larger beliefs will allow you to refine what you attract to yourself so when it’s finally time to move forward you will do so in greater alignment.
Dec 15th Uranus Square Pluto
The slow destructive and transformational energy of Pluto, and the quick evolving, inventive energy of Uranus produce a series of challenging and paradigm shifting world events that call into question our larger societal karma. Can we earth dwellers call into memory, larger lessons of the recent past to ensure that we are moving toward a healthy and sustainable future? Do we have the courage to fight for the right of the individuals and keep the world free of tyranny?
Mercury sneaks it’s way into Capricorn five days before the Sun on December 16th, giving us a precursor of what is to come. Small talk and frivolous expression is less likely to occur, as most communication becomes practical and purpose driven, and far less emotional and passionate. Our ability to decode meaningless ramblings into solid categorized information that can then be applied to a plan of action will increase, but too much computing can overwhelm, leading to frustration. Let’s pace ourselves, and have patience for those who may not grasp our plans and intentions, and if possible accept alternative forms of information without judging it too harshly.
December 21st marks the winter solstice and the day the Sun enters the strict and driving sign of Capricorn, as well as the new moon. This will be a tremendous time for new structured beginnings from life’s most humble of aspects. Increased time around family and close friends and the long year coming to a close will ground us into remembering the things that matter most. From there, we will create thoughtful and informed goals for the new year, and be fully charged up when the time comes to spring into action.

Sagittarius brings us the heat we need in cold December. Our fervent friend brings us the gift of fire - positivity, adventure, and confidence. Even with Jupiter in retrograde bringing us down on our luck, Sagittarius reminds us to keep up our optimism. With emotional communication being a priority this month (see moon in Gemini), the brute honesty of Sag will make us more courageous with expressing the truth of our heart. And let’s not forget that this fun-loving sign loves freedom and is always down for an adventure. The days may be dark but Sag reminds us to live life like its golden. These songs are a tribute to the fiery spirit that lives in all of us. I hope it keeps you warm in the gloomy winter days.
