FRIDAY, 12/24/2021

Today, Saturn in Aquarius squares off with Uranus in Taurus, the last of these squares for this year. The juxtaposing energies between traditional (Saturn) and modern (Uranus) ways of thinking can be intense. We could feel as though we’re being held back, making us want to push forward even more. Rebelling against the status quo creates tension in our lives. We yearn to break free from the oppressive structures that have been hindering us.

This transit has occurred twice already in 2021: on February 17 and June 14. The story began on February 17, occurring during Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio, and Leo seasons, which means that energy was ongoing and triggered in those 30-day solar cycles throughout the year.

Change is happening, such as in one’s career or relationship status, but you might not be ready for the upheaval that’s about to occur in your life. Instead of running away from transformation, lean into it. You’re in need of a makeover, and change can help reinvigorate the energy.

On a personal level, tension could be rising on the home front. The only way to deal with it is to have an open discussion with your partner or family members about your needs. Don’t hold back your feelings.

Today’s atmosphere may feel extremely difficult to navigate. Venus retrograde is returning to a passionate and creative exact conjunction with Pluto tonight. The issues on the table today are centered on structure and guidelines. We are in the midst of the third of 3 exact Saturn-Uranus squares — the aspect that has had us facing obstacles and feeling slowdowns all year. Today’s atmosphere is likely to encourage us to conform to whatever available structures and guidelines that we can find. However, since the Saturn-Uranus interaction is breaking down old structures, we may not really be able to find any safety in conformity no matter how much we want to. While Venus is retrograde, creative inspiration may not seem to offer any adequate alternatives and so we are likely to try to fall back on the remnants of old structures — which may feel quite cold and hollow. If we do try to expand our perspective and conform to new or emerging guidelines, we are likely to look or feel out of touch or even erratic and irresponsible.

DEC 27: LAST QUARTER MOON IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things “nice” rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.

JAN 2: NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.

JAN 9: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.

JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.

JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.


Hovering gracefully, the seahorse observes with the perspective of one who is not engulfed by the drama, remaining at a distance from all the turbulence. Seahorse Spirit appears at this time to remind you of the need to be neutral and gain perspective. Your message from Seahorse Spirit is: “Not my circus, not my monkeys.”

Spirit wants you to know that even if you are tempted to jump into the fray and try to fix things, the best way to serve yourself and others right now is to remain calm and simply watch and see.

Another message here is that whatever your query, Seahorse Spirit asks you to step back from it, be willing to explore things from different angles rather than a single one, and just observe what is possible.

From the perspective of the position of the neutral observer, you will discover a myriad of opportunities and a deeper understanding of what you seek and why—and you will know beauty, truth, love, and wisdom.
