We have a WHOLE LOT of mutual reception activity in December! Check it out:
1) The Sun in Sagittarius + Jupiter in Leo
2) Mars in Aquarius + Uranus in Aries
3) Saturn in Scorpio + Pluto in Capricorn. Yes, still. Until December 23rd, anyway!
That’s right, we’re going to have 3 of them in play at the same time – not to mention the penultimate Pluto/Uranus square – so we do seem poised for a very astrologically active close to the calendar year! We know from an earlier post that mutual receptions show an exchange of energy between two planets. Much like a pair of exchange students, each visits the other’s astrological “home” and what this does is create a strong resonant interplay between the two planets in question because this shared experience metaphorically causes them to start vibrating at the same frequency. And as this vibration increases (see the peak times listed below), it’s as if their voices join together to create one singular sound. Now this “sound” can manifest as harmonious OR dissonant depending upon a number of factors, but suffice to say that paying attention to the potential energetic effects of each mutual reception is important. If we know the pitfalls as well as the pluses, it makes it pretty easy to make conscious choices that work to our best advantage. For instance: If you’ve been thinking about making some changes in your life, stop thinking and start DOING once the Mars/Uranus mutual reception kicks off, as this is a pairing that favors self-initiated change. We can use the window of time this mutual reception is in effect as our energetic “thumbs-up” to “do something different” in our lives while averting the more volatile side of this vibe by detaching from confrontations w/ angry people or from our own anger if this is causing us to become unstable. Remember, every astrological force has both Hi-Fi and Lo-Fi expressions – the key is to understand what energies are in play so we’re empowered to make decisions that serve our Highest Good. So let’s move on to the particulars:
• The Sun/Jupiter mutual reception runs from Nov 22nd – Dec 21st, peaking between December 10th-18th.
• The Mars/Uranus mutual reception runs from Dec 4th – Jan 12th, 2015 and is at its strongest from December 15th-25th.
• The Saturn/Pluto mutual reception already reached its height during 2012 & 2013, but this is such a long-running & pervasive energetic undercurrent it is absolutely still worth paying attention to.
Now if you’ve been following the blog for some time, you’ll recall that I offered up an interesting geo-political take on the Saturn/Pluto mutual reception here. And if you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, you may remember that I’ve featured past articles discussing some of the effects of numbers 2 & 3 above. But for those who haven’t read them or who need a refresher, I will re-post excerpts from the newsletter w/ the relevant info here & here, respectively, so you can get up to speed.
With the Mars/Uranus mutual reception, instead of starting the New Year off with a “bang”, we are ending the year with one – this is some rocket fuel energy for sure! And with the Saturn/Pluto mutual reception, hopefully you’ve had enough time to realize when it’s time to hold vs. when to fold, because during the last 2 years many of us have found it more important than ever to consolidate our energy and stop any so-called “energy sinks” in our lives – this is especially so now because Saturn is in the last leg of its journey through Scorpio! Think of it as “cumulative review” time – what have we learned during this period?
But what about the Sun/Jupiter mutual reception? Definitely get subbed to the newsletter if you want to know more, because I plan on exploring this topic in an upcoming edition! I try to avoid boring readers to death by having the same info listed in two different places, so you’re unlikely to see an article appear here on the blog covering this topic – if I do (and no promises there!), it will examine the Sun/Jupiter mutual reception from a different angle and serve as more of a supplement to the information contained in the newsletter.
