DECEMBER 2019

 


THE TIMES OF OUR LIV ES  

The transiting sun enters DECEMBER at 8 SAGITTARIUS,
a MUTABLE FIRE sign.  His colors are purple and deep blue.   He rules the hips and thighs. His symbol is the Centaur.  He is ruled by expansive, happy Jupiter. Sagittarius is exploring, freedom loving, optimistic and loves to travel.  
He says, "Give me freedom" and "Don't fence me in".    
 
Life for Sagittarius is a buffet to experience, sample and enjoy.

MIND, LIGHT, ENLIGHTENMENT
THE HOLIDAYS ARE FESTIVALS OF LIGHT 
 
Rejoice with the holidays celebrating light and being light.
  The sun is at the lowest point on December 21, during the Solstice. At this time we create and bathe in our own "light", our soul essence, until the sun gets brighter and the days get longer.  
 
At this time of year we go inward, hibernate like a bear,  and meditate.  This allows us to have time without distractions to plan for 2020.   
 
ABOUT LIGHT -  Light is knowledge, wisdom and connection, not just physical light. The word "enlightenment" is the ability to transcend, to evolve, and to connect with spirit, the highest part of us.  
 
THE BODY and 5 PLANETS IN EARTH  
 
Slow down, breathe, prioritize activities

The sun goes into Capricorn and we prepare, like bears, to hibernate in winter. Nature is in resting mode and we are also.  We will dress warmly, eat warm foods and stay home more.
 
In Chinese medicine, the highlighted organs for winter are the kidneys and the bladder.  Take care of them by drinking water, soups and teas so the body gets rid of excess fluids and waste.   

The Sun, Venus and Jupiter are moving into Capricorn to meet Pluto (the great transformer) in Capricorn, and Saturn (the great teacher) also in Capricorn, directing us to bring our best earthly efforts to body, mind and spirit.  
 
             Make this holiday season relaxing and happy! 
 
 
 
SPIRIT ANIMAL - CENTAUR
 
A centaur was a creature from Greek mythology which was half-man and half-horse, the Sagittarius symbol. The head, arms and torso were human and joined at the waist to the body and legs of a horse.
 
C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia series depicts centaurs as the wisest and noblest of creatures. Narnian Centaurs are gifted at stargazing, prophecy, healing, and warfare; a fierce and valiant race always faithful to the High King. 
In J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, centaurs live in the Forbidden Forest close to Hogwarts, preferring to avoid contact with humans. They live in societies called herds and are skilled at archery, healing, and astrology, but as in the original myths, they are known to possess some wild tendencies.  
 
Powers/Abilities: Centaurs have extra-ordinary strength, (capable of lifting 800 pounds to 2 tons), plus enhanced reflexes and stamina. They use their front hooves as weapons.They have human intelligence and speech.   
 
Interesting thought: Try meditating with an imaginary centaur to increase personal strength, power, stamina and prophecy.
