Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah past, Happy Holidays, Festivus, EID, Kwanza…., and Happy New Year.

This is the time of the year when we sit back and appreciate all of those who have blessed our lives.  I know many of you personally, and must say THANK YOU, to each of you, and to the universe which makes this network of friendships possible.

2013 has been a busy year, as you can tell by the scarcity of newsletters from me.  I won’t make any more promises–they’ll come out when they come out.

Here’s a holiday video I totally love.  Pretend it’s Hannukah and the Christmas spirit is still revving up…    Joshua Bell grew up with my brothers and we have numerous family connections.  However, I didn’t know until now that his mother is Jewish (as is my beloved new stepfather). This “Christmas Confusion” medley is brilliant music and brilliant wit, too.

1. Astroweather:
The “Wandering” Planets

Why are Planets called Wanderers?  Because, against the staid background of apparently unmoving stars, the planets move around–a LOT.  and sometimes they even seem to change their mind and change directions.

We’re going to see THREE sequential direction changes (retrogrades) of INNER planets (these retrogrades affect us more directly) over the next few months:

1. To set this up…..Uranus and Pluto are being joined by an active Mars and soon Jupiter to make a tight, and tense cardinal cross, starting now.
The tensions we’ve been living with this year are about to get supercharged.  Mars brings anger and bellicosity.  Jupiter, while a benefic, makes bigger anything it interacts with.  In this case what’s getting bigger is self-righteous and irrational rage.  Watch it play out in the world scene over the next six weeks.  And reign in your own temper as you encounter others who may trigger you.

2. Venus is retrograde, NOW, til Jan 31.  We are going back, looking at how we value big business, the structures of our life, and the principles of love and harmony.  Old loves may in your life during this time.  This is NOT a time to beautify your home or undergo cosmetic surgery.  Projects i play right now will get uglier before they get pretty.  There may be reconsiderations about financial decisions (which could go either way).  If you need someone to take a new look at a project involving money, beauty or value, this is the time.

3. Mercury begins its three-week retrograde on February 6 (until Feb 28).   This is in Pisces, where Mercury (logical, rational, organizational mind) gets foggy and unclear anyway.  Do NOT sign big important contracts during this time.  Someone may be misrepresenting things (e.g. lying!).  If traveling, hand-carry important documents, remember where you left your car, and allow extra time for snafus.

4. IMMEDIATELY, on March 1, Mars goes retrograde til MAY 19th.  Mars is the DO-er.  This is a good time to go back and redo (or finish) something you’ve left hanging for a while.  It’s a long time, so you might be able to get a lot redone.  Just don’t count on others to do what they say.  Mars isn’t strong in Libra in the first place–to busy trying to be nice to accomplish anything.  You may get sweet words and promises, but actions will be low.

One last word–if you are just beginning to fall in love, hold back on taking things to the next level til Mid-May.  Impossible?  Well, if you’ve got the retrograde planet retrograde in your own chart, you’ll probably be OK.  Otherwise, this is the Spring of Flings—not for lasting new relationships.  Take it under advisement and have fun!
