Astrobutterfly ~ Astrology of December 2019 – the Grand Finale

At the bottom of this post, I’m linking to a fabulous preview of December 2019’s astro energies, written up by Astrobutterfly. On the collective level, we’re in for some big shifts. On a personal level, December 2019 culminates many of the astro transits I’ve used as examples in recent blog posts.

My North Node sits at 8° Capricorn, so the December 3, 2019 Venus Conjunct South Node transit occurs right on my North Node (future/soul’s trajectory), while the collective feels a South Node (past) impact.

The upcoming Full Moon also might be the most potent Full Moon activation of my chart that I’ve experienced — at least in recent memory.

From Astrobutterfly:

“December 12th, 2019 – Full Moon In Gemini

What a Full Moon! Venus is completely sandwiched between Saturn and Pluto (Saturn is at 19° Capricorn, Venus at 20° Capricorn, and Pluto at 21° Capricorn.) And the Full Moon (at 19° Gemini) is quincunx all of that.

AND, if that was not enough, on the same day, Chiron changes direction. The primal identity wound (Chiron direct at 1° Aries) can no longer be ignored. This time, we have to get to the heart of the matter (Venus conjunct Saturn and Pluto). No matter how.

Because the quincunx will ask you to find a creative solution. Pay special attention to this Full Moon, because it will reveal what the monumental Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January 2020 is really about.”

In my intro to Ann Kreilkamp’s recent post on the January 2020 Saturn/Pluto Conjunction, I mentioned how my natal 21° Gemini Saturn is getting majorly activated by a quincunx aspect with transiting Pluto. Well, it turns out this powerful Gemini Full Moon will hit within 2 degrees of my natal Saturn, which will get a quadruple whammy from transiting Venus, Saturn, Pluto quincunxing it, with the Full Moon conjuncting it. Mega-hit. No wonder this spot has felt so “up” for me in recent weeks. Yet another example of sensing the impending energies before putting names to them.

Also on December 12, 2019, Chiron stations direct at 1° Aries, which happens to be my Sun/Moon Midpoint, currently activating an exact kite formation with my natal exact Grand Trine among Sun-Moon-Pluto. I wrote of this kite in Precognitive Blues, Part 3: Astrology, Card Divination and Animal Spirits. In that same post, I also mentioned how much more powerful I find the precognitive activation/dreams when a longer transit planet/centaur changes direction or changes signs. I hadn’t thought to look at the degree Chiron will station direct, but of course it would just happen to occur on this literally essential (as in “Essence of Me”) point in my natal chart.

I also just noticed that the Solar Eclipse at 4° Capricorn on December 26 forms a Grand Trine in Earth with transiting Uranus at 2-3° Taurus (also conjunct my Part of Fortune) and my 3° Virgo Ascendant. Jupiter (expansive, lucky) will be at 5° Capricorn and Pholus (small thing, BIG EFFECT) will be just a bit past 2° Capricorn on December 26, both within orb of the Solar Eclipse. I think of Jupiter-Pholus conjunctions as the Big Bang, so on the collective level, we’ll have Jupiter-Pholus-Sun-Moon interacting with Uranus. Mega Big Bang. Then, personally, that forms a Grand Trine with key spots of my natal chart.

In other words, if you’ve sensed that things seem particularly “up” for me right now, these are some major astrological reasons why. December 2019’s transits affect my chart in an extremely personal way, but these and other transits are powerful enough to affect everyone in some way just by virtue of being alive at this time.

As Astrobutterfly says:

When I write the monthly reports, I usually put the most important transit in the title, for example, ‘Uranus enters Taurus’ or ‘Venus goes retrograde’ but I just couldn’t pick just one asto event for the month of December, because there are simply too many things going on.

Healing Portal: Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and Chiron

Spiritual Healing and Practical Woo

Monday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 19, 2019 marks the Sun’s shift from Aquarius to Pisces, followed by a Full Supermoon in Virgo. Pisces (ruled by boundless, graceful Neptune) and Virgo (the detail oriented, Mercurial healer of the zodiac) together bring opportunities for spiritual healing of ourselves, each other and our planet. Think Water and Earth, Cups and Pentacles, Emotional/Intuitive realm and the Body/Physical realm. Aim to integrate practicality (Virgo) and emotions (Pisces).

Go with the flow, especially if the flow leads to a sudden urge to dot your i’s and cross your t’s. 

Tuesday’s Full Moon is the fourth in a series of five supermoon’s in a row. Even though we’ve finished the recent eclipse trio, this ongoing supermoon series intensifies the usual emotional wallop of a Full Moon. This month’s zero degree Virgo adds extra oomph for emotional resets and healing –provided you integrate the polarities.

Through the negative lens, nitpicky Virgo seems like a stick in the mud compared to Pisces’ watery idealism. It might feel like “first the ecstasy, then the laundry,” but this tension can bring positive results. Think of the monastic life, rooted in physical labor and baking bread. If you seek the spiritual in mundane details, you’ll find many miracles. Nebulous prayers reveal their answers in lived experience. If you’ve felt confused or adrift, this Virgo Supermoon could bring sudden clarity about your next logical step.

[UPDATE: in typical Pisces/Virgo tension, this original inspired article got slightly hazy on the details. Chiron is not an asteroid but a centaur — really not sure why I typed that or failed to catch it before posting. The Sun/Supermoon discussion covers two days, February 18-19th, 2019, although the effects will last longer. I originally focused on Tuesday, since that’s when the Moon enters Virgo. I’m including this update for clarity, but also as an illustration of that sweeping sense of harmony that can trip over details. That doesn’t negate your inspiration or sense of cosmic beauty. Be gentle with yourself, and remind critical Virgo of its trickster ruler.]

Chiron from Pisces to Aries

For clues on what’s up for healing, look back to April 17-18, 2018, when Chiron last shifted from 29th degree Pisces to 0 degrees Aries. Yes, coinciding with this Virgo Supermoon and the Sun’s shift to Pisces, Wounded Healer Chiron returns to Aries this Tuesday. Chiron spent April 2010-April 2018 in Pisces, giving an eight year stretch of spiritual healing influence. This centaur galloped into Aries from April 18th until September 27th, 2018 when it retrograded to Pisces again.

Chiron represents our deepest wounds and how in healing these wounds we help others heal. Since healing rarely occurs in a linear fashion, it helps to observe cycles and similar aspects:

  • What themes or situations called for healing from April 2010-2018?
  • What did you learn, and what core wounds were influenced by doubt and faith during this period?
  • What healing crisis or need to care for yourself first (Aries) burst onto the scene in April 2018?
  • What relief or insights did you receive in late September 2018?
  • What spiritual wounds or questions arose again?
  • Where are you now?
  • How have you grown?

As Chiron moves from 29th degree Pisces into 0 degrees Aries, what actions will you take to support your own healing? What parts of you need healing before you can forge ahead? The combo of Pisces Sun, Virgo Supermoon, and this Chiron shift provides insight and energy to support deep healing and release. Will you allow yourself to receive the blessings? These are collective energies. How they affect you as an individual depends on your own willingness to embrace the energies, along with aspects to your natal chart. For more insights, look for signs in the 29th or 0 degree range, or we can explore your chart and transits together in a session.

For general inspiration and portal support, I feel led to share the link to Divine Doorway #5: “King of Cups aka Chiron.” I created this door just before Chiron moved from Aquarius to Pisces in April 2010, just flowing with the energies. It’s eerie how much that door opens in 29th degree Chiron, whatever the sign.

Blessings and healing to you and yours!

Loose Ends, Astrology and My NDE

Since I’ve not blogged in over week, this is just a quick post to say I’m not dead, but I almost was. No need for alarm: I’ve had so many near death experiences, near lightning strikes, head injuries, and I spend so much time crossing the veil in both personal and professional life that even my mom commented, “Glad you survived that bad experience. Another chapter in your amazing life. <3”

Been there, done that, Laura Bruno’s had another rebirth. This one was typically uncanny in terms of premonition dreams right before Easter, specifically noting one of my return flights to Kalamazoo from Bethlehem, PA. Continue reading

2018: Language, Learning and Lyme

On February 13th, I wrote about learning a new language and reclaiming both physical and metaphorical roots. What an interesting and transformative few weeks I’ve had! Things continue to progress and refine, so I thought I’d share a little update. It all kind of spirals around roots and my medical intuitive book on healing Lyme disease. That project has now reached 70,000+ words, with many multi-disciplinary contributors and my own synthesizing of how that all relates to Lyme disease.

In and around my writing, research and contacting other contributors, Continue reading

Pam Younghans: Planetary Energies for September 12-18, 2016

This post from Pam Younghans on her NorthPoint Astrology Journal dovetails with so many of the things I’m hearing in sessions, from friends, and experiencing in my own life. Lots of opportunities for healing and release of the old! I’ve given a little excerpt here, but you can click through for the full post.

Your guide to planetary energies for
September 12 to 18, 2016
By Pam Younghans
THE LUNAR ECLIPSE on Friday is the highlight of the week, but we have plenty to keep us busy in the days leading up to the lunation. We have some challenging situations to navigate, represented by a t-square configuration formed by four of the planets (Sun and Mercury in Virgo, Mars in Sagittarius, and Chiron in Pisces).

As sure as we are about how to improve a situation or resolve an issue, others are equally committed to their agenda, which may be quite different from ours….

(Again, you can click through for the full post, which is highly recommended for anyone struggling with these intense energies, as well as anyone wanting to do any kind of Full Moon release or activation ceremony. Learn what energies you’re working with so that you can navigate and make the most of this time period.)

The Oracle Report, Tuesday, August 12, 2014 (With Special Commentary on Robin Williams)

From Wise Owl Cindy

No, It’s Not Just You!

I’ve got a busy day of sessions ahead of me, but I felt called to post an acknowledgment:

If you’re feeling weepy, intense, overwhelmed, terrified of seemingly dire health issues, horrified at recent government/NWO moves, and/or just wondering if all your dreams and progress are merely an illusion … you’re in excellent company.

We’ve got so much Pisces and Chiron energy whirling around these days that most sensitive people can’t help feeling it. That’s why, even though I’m not an Astrologer, I post others’ Astrological forecasts on this blog. Whether we follow the stars or not, they influence us. As Joni Mitchell so eloquently put it, “We are stardust, we are golden,” but physicists and mystics have also expressed that fact. As Above, So Below … As Within, So Without. Astrological trends influence, but we need not accept them as unalterable destiny. It just helps to know what kind of world we’re swimming in, and we’ve got whirlpools and a bunch of scary looking sea monsters right now.

Relax. Nurture yourself. This, too, shall pass.

Trends I’ve noticed in clients, friends, family, and on the world stage: underlying issues (especially health or survival issues) that I have seen and warned about (often for years) have suddenly made themselves undeniably known. A switch has flipped, so that people can no longer hide from the decay, depletion, infection, condition, conspiracy or whatever they tried so hard to ignore. I’ve experienced this myself, as well.

Yes, seeing a giant boogie man seems overwhelming, but I still view this as a positive shift. People who’ve lamented their “failure to thrive” now have much more clarity about the parts of themselves (or of governments, churches, financial sectors, etc.) that have run sabotage programs and drained resources. With this clarity comes initial alarm, but once the shock wears off, this new found willingness to look at scary things head on allows decisive action.

Yes, decisions need to be made. When deep discomfort arises, we would all be wise to assess, “What’s working in my life, and what areas really aren’t? Am I willing to settle for the yuck, or am I willing to make choices, shift awareness and take actions towards thriving?” It really can be that simple. Solutions appear when we’re willing to admit that we could use them. Now.

If life has you feeling down, use this Mercury Retrograde and major Pisces and Chiron (the wounded healer) period to clear out the cobwebs, face your Shadow and reclaim sovereignty over your life — body, mind, emotions and spirit. You don’t need to accept mere survival or getting by. If you feel dissatisfied, you can rise above wallowing in that and use that dissatisfaction to invoke cures, solutions and inspiration. Life is what we make of it … and in the Freudian typo pool, I just typed, “Life is what we make of us.” Indeed, it is. As Pisces makes us all watery, and Mercury wreaks havoc on our rational side and communication, and Chiron shows us our wounds, let’s use this time wisely. Find support — from within, from God/dess, or vulnerably ask for what you need from someone else that you can trust.

Most importantly, know that we are all moving through intense energy right now. We’re not alone. Ever. Even when it most seems so. If you feel alone, that’s part of the Piscean illusion. Neptune rules Pisces and the ocean. For some reason, that reminds me of Kabir’s line, “Everyone knows that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.”

I will leave you with this watery bit of loveliness, also from Kabir (Songs of the Divine, translated by J. Das):

Kabir: Ocean-Heart of Mercy, and, O Lily-Like Soul!

O lily-like soul!

Why are you withering?

Your stem is in water,

The water is in the pond,

The pond is God.

It is while in the water that you grow,

And in it that you live

You ARE always in the water!

There is no heat below you,

And no fire above you.

So what flame is afflicting you,

That you are withering so?

Kabir says, “Those who remain in the water,

And continue to absorb and be absorbed by it,

Kabir knows they will not die.”

Ocean-Heart of Mercy

Keep on doing your work.

Keep on reciting God’s name,

And you will live pleasantly in the world.

With true love as your master,

Your life-map will change.

Remember the promise you made [in the womb],

That you would use your body wisely?

How easily you have forgotten it.

You have earned no merit.

You have become quite intoxicated with the world,

And lost the true wealth you possessed.

At the end of life you will be compacted,

Into innumerable birth forms.

You obtained human form,

After enduring sufferings and difficulty,

So set your vision straight ahead,

Walk the path of life.

Your feet have become delicate,

And at anytime, they could give way.

Abandon treachery and deceit,

Lose attachment and illusion,

Avoid strenuous effort.

Instead, develop love for God,

Seek refuge at God’s feet.

The ocean heart of mercy is like wax,

As soon as conditions are right,

It melts with love for you.
