THE ASTROLOGICAL EDGE . . . . . December 2018


Mercury will station direct on December 6, and we’ll finally be free of inner-planet retrogrades until the next Mercury retrograde cycle in March 2019. We’ll be in the shadow phase of this Mercury retrograde, however, until December 24, but as the month progresses, there should be more ease and flow regarding communications and the exchange of information.

Much of 2018 has been marked by inner-planet retrograde cycles, including those of Mercury, Mars, and Venus, which have been occurring in succession since last spring. This has put a reflective mood on the year and has offered us the chance to put a wrap on unfinished projects or unresolved relationships.

As we close out 2018, it’s likely we’ll note progress in terms of what we have concluded as opposed to what we had been able to start. Looking ahead to 2019, fewer retrogrades are in store, as neither Mars nor Venus will be retrograde next year. Use the current month as an opportunity to complete unfinished business in order to clear your slate for the forward momentum of the year ahead!

Neptune, planet of spirituality, dreams, creativity, intuition, and illusion/disillusion, will be activated in different ways by Saturn and Jupiter concurrently this month. We’re likely to see religious organizations feature prominently in the headlines, but whether the news will be favorable or an indication of extremism remains to be seen. December looks to be a productive month for artists, musicians, and those who seek to make the world a better place.
