Mercury Turns Direct – All is Well
By Gwynne Mayer
December brings less stress in the cosmic world, and focuses more on the individual stressors of our own making. We need to decide where we want our focuses, home, family, relationships, politics, the ‘news’…and then learn how we create our own environment with our focuses. Creating each of our own worlds is becoming a spiritual designation. Becoming mindful through meditation, prayer or contemplation will bring forth the ‘inner world’ of each of us. This is a time to look within and find ways to create a brighter inner world and less blame on our external world and those around us. Finding your paths should be a focus the next few months and feeling the freedoms to do so!
The dates to look at this month are important as they relate to how you receive your information.

Remember to read your Ascendant (ego/physical body), Sun (Spiritual/mind) and Moon (emotional/feeling/nurturing) signs in that order when reading these monthly updates.
So let’s get started on your Sun, Ascendant and Moon for December:
Aries — Settling accounts in our finances and career moves will be the focus. Finding ways to plan for the new year 2019 and not get thrown with our impulsivity and need for independence. Aries can make some major strides in the next few months if listening to inner guidance!
Taurus — Beginning to feel the rumblings of change and frustrations in the ‘now’ will allow the ‘old Bull’ to release himself from the ‘china closet’ and make a few progressive moves in the next month. Taurus can smell the change coming but is not quite sure how destabilizing it might be! Don’t bury your head in the sand with this one!
Gemini — Learning to work with others in an organized way and deal with the frustrations of not being able to have it ‘your way’ will be the focus. There will be many communications and directives coming from every source in your life and you can only do what ‘you’ have set as a priority. Setting priorities will be a major task of yours this month which also means that you must ‘plan ahead.’
Cancer — Changing career and relationship issues are the focuses for this month. You will see that you have some decisions to make in those areas and they are not going to come easily as you don’t like to move away from your ‘set pattern of activities.’ You might consult those who are closest to you to make some major decisions looming in those areas!
Leo — Leos are waking up to nurturing self and taking care of health issues as they occur. This means that boundaries must be in place and all interests should focus on the welfare of personal health and happiness. Too many distractions can cause Leos to focus on other matters and become so frustrated that stress is the result. Stress causes illness and dis eases! Reduce stressors NOW!
Virgo — Virgos are paying attention to the environment around them and who and what they are attracting in their lives. Stress is caused from poor boundaries and not taking responsibility for the family and friendship environment we create. Please pay attention to the stress related illnesses caused by the above connections. Illness is often caused because you cannot ‘digest’ your environment. Spend time meditating and connecting to your higher centers.
Libra — Librans are on a roll in the money making department but must also learn to balance the budget while enjoying more monies available. There may be a problem with siblings that needs to be addressed which would be quite simple if you just are honest about your own needs and ambitions. It is time to quit trying to balance your emotions when they seem to be caused by your external reality. Pay attention to your ‘inner self.’
Scorpio — You have many opportunities for change and transformation in this next month. What will be important for you is to be discerning and decide what you want to achieve in all areas of life. You have a great sense of what works for you but you need to be more definite and follow a path that serves you well, not always thinking of ‘reacting, but instead responding’ to life in a way that works for you. Start setting your boundaries toward those goals.
Sagittarius — Lessons in life are coming to you every day and often more than that, so it is time for you to pay attention to what people feel when they are around you and then to go ‘within’ and see if that is because of you or something going on in their world. In any event, you need to look within and decide what it is you want and surround yourself with an environment that supports your higher sense of Self. You have much to give the planet, so don’t get bogged down in the ‘drama’ that surrounds you.
Capricorn — Capricorns are learning what it is like to be disciplined and listening to the ‘inner Self’ rather than wait for more feedback from the outer world. This is a time of great strength for the Capricorn and the perseverance that you have shown is now paying off in a big way. You must continue your disciplines and learn some self- calming ways to meditate and enjoy solitude that you have been craving all along. The time is now!
Aquarius — Aquarians will be watching their health and the habits that have created both healthy and unhealthy daily patterns of diet and exercise. It is imperative to pay attention to those areas of your life that cause poor circulation, lack of oxygenation, etc. Eating raw foods and salads may help in a big way toward a healthy atmosphere. Circulation is often a big problem with Aquarians and they can easily adjust once they know what to do!
Pisces — All systems go! You are able to reach out and attain success in those areas that you have been planning and disciplining yourself. It is time to reap those rewards and feel good about yourself as you move forward. You will find an extra reserve of energy that gives you the push! Pay attention to your dreams and your spiritual goals. They are all within reach!
