into doubt or something into question an old way of doing things were an old commitment we start a process of growth we may become more contained committed focused discipline and all of this can actually feel even if you’re someone who’s averse to like limitations and you know the stricter Saturn I’m energy this can actually feel really expansive which is you know that’s nice you can also look for waves of contraction and expansion and alternation they can kind of go back and forth from now until the year ahead but watch for that feeling of growth by constriction or constriction and growth coming sort of cooperating with each other in an interesting manner starting as early as December 2nd you can also take something very easily that is not so great and try to make it into something Noble righteous or heroic that’s Jupiter trying to ennoble something that’s Saturn I’m that may not be so good that’s corrupt that represents decay depravity or that’s something that that’s just a little dark or heavy in the ancient world like you get the nice thing about the ancient astrology is that Saturn is just sort of the placeholder for the negative it’s really that simple in a certain in a certain way it’s also a lot more complex than that but a lot of the times you’ll just see astrologers anytime Saturn comes up you’ll just be like okay so poopy stuff and then you know whatever other planet is combining with it those little I was just an easy way to be like okay Jupiter’s gonna try to make poopy stuff really look like great stuff the expansion of the negative is one thing that I wrote here which can also mean a lot of different things I don’t mean negative in like negative things can kind of grow but I also mean for example that you know like the negative space in a piece of art where in order to make something else in something primary stand forth you have to work on cutting away at other things so that the negative space around it helps that that primary things stand forth more so sometimes it’s a chipping away a cutting back or an eliminating that helps something positive or something primary stand forth that’s a Jupiter and Capricorn situation the challenging of an old system or the facing of an immediate or a new system facing an immediate setback so in both of these you have the idea of an old system Saturday enjoy something new Jupiter or you have the idea of a new system Jupiter facing an immediate setback Saturn so watch for those kinds of dynamics and know that they’re natural you don’t have to freak out if something like that happens because you can take it as a sign that this is a part of that how the destiny of my path is going to unfold right now the old order and the new way we’re looking at things that are old and things that are new and sometimes there’s a potential for a marriage of the new and the old the conservative and the liberal and sometimes there’s going to be more of a hard clash but either way the old and the new the conservative and the liberal are the dialogue between them is greatly intensified during this time also you can see Jupiter wanting to glorify the old the traditional this is the memorial speech you give at your grandfather or grandmother’s funeral about how wise that they were you can also see of a rise in authoritarian thinking where you get the strength and bravado of Jupiter and the strictness of Saturn growth through limitation focus and adherence to moral or spiritual authority the tradition tradition in the past again that’s Jupiter amplifying the themes of Saturn by virtue of being in its sign and in by virtue of being in the superior position over Saturn right now really in pushing its influence on to Saturn which is you know that’ll change once Jupiter passes Saturn okay so let’s go ahead and bring the chart back up on the screen and we’ll take a look at our next big transit for the month the next big transit for the month is going to happen around December 7th now you know some people are gonna look at all sorts of different things in a chart and let me plug in the outer planets here no I try to keep things a little bit more simple because I feel like you can kind of get transited to death so we’re being nickeled and dimed by astrology all the time so Sun in Sagittarius around December 7th is going to move into a square with Neptune in Pisces so here’s that dynamic unfolding right around December 7th now you’re gonna be feel this as as soon as the month begins but it’ll really intensify right around the 7th so let’s talk about the Sun and Neptune and what you can expect from that transit so the Sun is the traditional emblem of wisdom and knowledge and clarity and it is the planet that was associated with the

clear and correct perception of truth and so when you pair that with Neptune who often represents the transcendental otherworldly and mystical and even the miraculous you get this sense of wisdom and miracles or of transcendental knowledge you get the idea of teachers and transcendence inspiring gurus and so forth you also get the idea of the Sun being so central to our sense of self and purpose and Neptune being a planet of dissolution you can have this combination where the ego faces its own death or dissolution or dismemberment so there’s a sense of questioning who we are what we’re doing that can come up during this time and it can be kind of inspiring but it can also be a little overwhelming for our sense of self and Center you also think of the timeless wisdom of an inspiring leader like the Dalai Lama or you know Martin Luther King jr. or someone who has a kind of religious but maybe Civic voice that’s very inspiring sort of timeless and somehow captures the the spirit of the times that these kinds of inspiring moments be present with the Sun square Neptune I also get the dissolution of solar figures like leaders heads of state CEOs fathers and also the creative impulse the desire to create and the need to transcend these can be really powerful themes with Sun square Neptune you can also watch for the deception or delusion of the omnipotent ego that is to say that the ego can think that you know like I really walk on water or whatever the sense of being some kind of prophet or special chosen person and a little sometimes false gurus or cult leaders and things like that will have strong Sun Neptune contact it’s funny how you can have a real miraculous sort of inspiring guru and you can have a totally false guru with Sun Neptune it’s as though the line between the transcendental and the illusory is always at play when Neptune’s involved ungrounded inspirations fantasies and ideals come up with something is really fantastically inspiring but not really rooted in reality the desire need to transcend to reinvent one sense of self or purpose again we kind of went over that already and again the ailing or weakened father or ego that’s that sense of Neptune that is sometimes the martyr or the victim or the one who is weak or suffering etc so you know the feeling of being a little bit of a leaky vessel that that’s that’s weakened or weakening I have to watch for that around December 7th as well all right let’s go on to the next transit the next transit of the month which is going to be ok December 9th mercury will enter Sagittarius um you know what we’re seeing around the 9th and this lasts all the way until December 29th is the idea that there is a combination of mercury and well we’ll just highlight it first so that you can see it here you go so there’s mercury entering Sagittarius alright so obviously this is the place of Mercury’s exile whenever mercury is put into one of Jupiter signs or Jupiter into one of mercury signs are said to be in their detriment that’s because they are planetary opposites and so they have they have to figure out how to get along with one another and it’s not always easy so you get things like grandiose logic Jupiter influencing mercury while Mercury’s in jupiter sign grandiose logic and communication the idea of expansive knowledge or broadening your vocabulary broadening your mind finding inspiring teachers and ideas but also ungrounded thoughts thoughts that soar and go in all different directions you have the potential for exaggerated speech exaggerated thinking pronouncements that are maybe made or claims that are made without proper research or backing you have inspiring personalities but also potentially fiery and dogmatic individuals or ideas you have strong willful but upbeat and optimistic orbiters or public speaking of speakers or talks you have sometimes benefits remember Mercury’s in a Jupiter ruled side benefits that come through speech technology written communication notes emails learning writing teaching those are some things to watch for as the month unfolds with mercury moving into the sign of Sagittarius alright let’s look at our next one so next after that from the 11th into the 12th we’re gonna see the full moon in mercury sign this is interesting here we go here’s the full moon oops need a thicker marker there we go there’s the full moon in Gemini coming through the opposition to the Sun in Sagittarius excuse my awful drawing anyway what to watch for there

well obviously the full moon is a turning point in the in the cycle the cycle starts off with a lot of emphasis on Jupiter the big vision the big idea the big belief positive postures are positive expansive thinking then you have this really strong emphasis coming through on the rational intellect on skepticism doubt questioning careful or thoughtful analysis it also creates an environment that’s Restless communicative looking for intellectual mental or social stimulation it’s an intelligent atmosphere that’s being created around the full moon and it made because the full moon is going to be in mercury sign but opposite to mercury in Mercury’s detriment in Sagittarius you get more debate around things that involve faith ideas beliefs best practices ethics politics so a little bit more of a conflicted intellectual energy around the full moon and going forward from that point on in the month that’s the 11th and the 12th but you can also see that this is a full moon that may emphasize with the opposition of mercury a kind of flirtatious playful but contentious atmosphere like if you’ve ever been on a date with someone and you’ve been debating something and you clearly have very different views but you’re also really attracted to each other that could be what you’re seeing from full moon onward as well you also have the potential for mixed messages or mixed miscommunication with mercury and the opposite side of the Moon around the full moon as well as the theme of being an alien or outsider based on your mind your ideas thoughts or beliefs or maybe even working in an unusual environment where communication is somehow a little bit difficult you’re gonna see that pronounced around the full moon again because the full moon is in Gemini and Mercury is opposing the full moon in its detriment in Sagittarius all right let’s look at the next one so then we’re bouncing around a little bit here because things start happening sort of rapid-fire on December 13th you’re gonna see a Mars trine to Neptune right so Mars and Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces that comes around again I’m right right about the same time as the full moon what can you expect from this one well I always have the theme of heroism with Mars courage war/battle contentiousness conflict muscle strength aggression will force potentially explosive violent dynamics but also with Neptune then you get this sense of the transcendental version of that which can sometimes be like spiritual heroes people who die for a cause martyrs suffering Saints the salvation of the sinners in the world that I once was lost but now I’m found I’ve risen up like a conquering hero over death and living or something like that right is this kind of you know Mars Neptune the miracle of the down-and-out fighter who comes up and find salvation somehow also you have the potential for sort of deceptive and potentially violent or aggressive tactics or maneuvers you want to be careful of that especially on the emotional level you also have the the desire body with Mars and the illusion of strength and victory so getting high on oneself you could even see this being related for example to something like steroids a false sense of being bigger strong to exert one’s efforts or will in service of something higher for example again a cause something that you’re fighting for or you can also see the frustration of ones will Mars do to completely overwhelming circumstances that feel sort of otherworldly like when you just get flooded with oh wow okay I was I was on a roll I was going somewhere and then life just kind of flooded in and and took over that frustration of the will can come through an effort or attempt to do something which is aided by higher powers or allies meaning Mars wants to do something and it receives some kind of otherworldly support or aid which can come through real things in real people but other times it comes in a vision in a dream or something that’s actually sort of part of an alternate reality the desire to become stronger through immoral methods or means got to be careful of that the deceptive quality of Neptune and potentially again the need to align one sense of will or purpose with something bigger than oneself so that’s Mars training Neptune around the middle of the month and you can watch for that at about the same time the full moon is coming through alright let’s go on to our next one so the next transit is going to be the December 11th through the 14th Venus this is maybe one of the biggest transits of the month in addition to Jupiter entering Capricorn and the big huge solar eclipse happening at the end of the month right around the same time right you’re gonna see Venus like the 10th 11th Venus goes through conjunction with Saturn and then conjunction with Pluto by the 13th so I put you know 11th through the 14th you

could say 10th to the 14th but this is veno in Capricorn conjunct Saturn and then conjoined with Pluto back to back so this is a lot happening for Venusian things but Venusian things are going through some kind of change or transformation the death and transformation of relationships Venus death and transformation being Plutonian but also the deepening and maturing or deepening of a commitment in in romantic life that would be the Saturn Venus quality the changing tides and friendships just we were in and now we’re out or we were out and now we’re in older women and the wisdom of the Crone this is a venus saturn dynamic where you pair Venus the goddess with old age Saturn also pain loss and hardship and love in general with Saturn and Pluto also diplomatic challenges where Venus wants to bring peace but there’s some limit or block to peace or some kind of really difficult or heavy work that has to be done and may not be easy in order to get there to the agreement place the agreement place I like that I’m gonna make a room in the house and just put a sign on the door that says the agreement place all right so you have to watch for manipulation betrayal jealousy infidelity things like that was Venus and Pluto also look for the shadow side of things related to sisters women girls daughters the goddess in general the beauty I said I wrote this the beauty that ages like a fine wine something that gets older and more mature but more beautiful as a result attraction to that which is mature and deep but also maybe provocative in some way um we also think about hurt and healing and its relation to beauty sensuality sexuality friendships and love and also potentially the death or ending of relationships or agreements of any kind or the binding of a new agreement forged in the midst of turmoil or difficulty and that goes back to the diplomatic challenges of the moment this is a really big transit because it’s hitting both Saturn and Pluto that’s right around the full moon as well so a pretty intense kind of full moon energy alright let’s go back to our transits and take a look at the next one this is going to be around December 20th and on December 20th up there we go okay on the 20th we’re going to see mercury it’s a little before the 20mm the 19th and the 20th you’re gonna see mercury squaring Neptune in Pisces mercury in sagittarius Square to Neptune in Pisces now what can we watch for from from this transit well remember that the full moon is so mercurial but it’s got kind of a conflicted relationship with mercury I feel like this is really an interesting month for mercury with the full moon and Mercury sign mercury changing signs in to its detriment being squared in Neptune this month the idea of you know like what’s what is legitimate logical intelligent use of our mind and what is some unhealthy use of our mind what’s fanaticism and what is commitment of beliefs and philosophy those the line between those things maybe kind of blurry this month but here’s what to watch for with mercury square and Neptune around December 20th muddled communication right you have to be careful about things not coming through clearly deception or illusion communication gossip you want to be really careful of those things intoxication and mental fog twisting the facts some way or even this is an interesting thing even like spying and you know this is not the time not a great time to go and like look at your boyfriend or girlfriend’s like you know image are not images that could be there too what is it they’re like their inbox that’s what I’m trying to say because what you find at this time may be some how it could be it’s the kind of thing where you know you could find something that’s through covert action I also really mess up your relationships obviously Trust is a huge thing in mercury Neptune while it wants to discover something that sometimes hidden or secretive can also be really deceptive and that can really hurt people in the long run so let’s see the also interesting how how different these significations can be you can also have inspired or otherworldly dreams and synchronicities when mercury is squared in Neptune last year I found it it really interesting that one of my teachers who spent his life explicate engaging of Hermes Trismegistus and the ancient ancient astrologers he was a his name was robert Schmidt he passed while mercury was squared in Neptune and it was this kind of the leaving of an

otherworldly sort of teacher he was a mystic and a Sutton a scholar and he he had a stroke and passed out of his bodies mercury Neptune so the mystical teacher the otherworldly dream and synchronicity the impulse to write or speak musically or poetically the brain the mind the intellect that somehow connects with the other worldliness but again you have to be careful because where there’s channeled thoughts streams of consciousness writing or esoteric investigation there can also be deception and the desire to know or understand something that takes you into some violation of a boundary okay so sometimes though the revelation of concealed or hidden information gossip disinformation spying the attempt to twist the facts you watch for all of those things and this is again around December 20th alright let’s go back and look at our next transit so from the 21st of the 22nd we have the winter solstice taking place as the Sun enters Capricorn that’s a big moment nothing much I want to say about it other than just to say that you know it’s a great time to kind of set your intention for the new year and generally to honor that the return of the light is beginning and in one way or another you know we can we can do that creatively and just try to move along with the rhythms of the year and if you’re in the southern hemisphere obviously this is not as applicable in terms of the seasonal quality but from the archetypal standpoint you know the the Solstice moment is not a literal moment it is an archetypal moment and so from the archetypal standpoint what we’re saying is that this language the system right can be used and the the archetypal symbolism of it can be tapped into wherever you may be at on the planet it for ancient astrologers though there were seasonal symbolic correlations they were not to be taken literally this is why you can have planets in any sign of the zodiac that display the seasonal qualities of that sign even though it has nothing to do with that time of year you can have Mars and a summary sign behaving in a summer-like way but be boring in the middle of winter right so this is I always tell people just think about the language symbolically just like you would the Tarot just because you get the the sun card in Tarot doesn’t mean it’s literally sunny outside okay anyway and not to say that you can’t flip the zodiac either it’s a it’s a it is an archetypal symbolic language and I’m one of my colleagues Theodore nacre he has a whole Facebook group devoted to flipping the zodiac I don’t personally think it’s necessary and I have some disagreement with the whole concept of doing it but you can do it I’m not saying you can’t anyway um that’s a whole aside sorry let’s go back to our our next transit let’s go to December 22nd the big transit that’s happening on December 22nd is that Venus in the sign of Aquarius will be moving through a square to Uranus in the sign of Taurus so this is a Venus Uranus dynamic that you know comes through right about the 22nd so here’s what to watch for there you’re gonna look for the need to defy conventional gender sexual norms or stereotypes to experiment or seek out new kinds of relationships new kinds of art new kinds of style or fashion new kinds of sexual or romantic experiences you can also note that there are is going to be sudden changes or revolutions within relationships or the sudden amendment of an agreement of some kind or even the sudden disruption of a relationship or some kind of agreement so whether it’s a contract or an understanding that you have with somebody or a sexual or relationship or even a committed you know long-term relationship of some kind you can see that there will be sudden disruptions that unexpected changes sometimes there for the better sometimes they’re really innovative if you been having a dead streak in your intimacy this can kind of wake things up on the other hand yeah this can be the moment where a relationship breaks apart Uranus the sudden disruption can mean some kind of innovation you can also mean a disruption that severs Mars and Uranus have a lot in common in that regard Uranus can be a kind of violent and disruptive planet got to be a little careful of it anyway the the also you can look at the radical redefining of a set aesthetic or artistic values this is what people go through sudden fashion changes let me shave my head or let me you know whatever I’m gonna I’m certainly gonna wear like hot orange boots or something like that right the need to flaunt oneself or one’s ideas views body sexuality sometimes it’s just kind of a provocative rebellious defiant energy around Venusian things the sudden liberating impulse or desire I have to be free right now help me get free potential also for escapist futuristic egoism the idea of some grand plan and how it’s

going to free everyone and everything and make everything totally lovely and pleasant know that that’s Venus Uranus and sometimes it can other times it’s a pipe dream so you’ll watch for this energy around the 22nd okay now here’s the big one this is the really the transit of the month which is an eclipse we’re back to Eclipse season going on that late on the 25th into the 26th we’ve got a solar eclipse coming through Capricorn conjoined with Jupiter and Capricorn while Saturn and Pluto are getting together in Capricorn and will be conjoined just after you know a lunar eclipse in December in January so this is a huge one what can you say about this well I’m gonna be doing a few videos about this eclipse so first let me just say stay tuned because there’s a lot I want to say that I can’t say in this video because I’m trying to keep this more succinct but here’s what to watch for in general New Moon’s mean new beginnings so we’re planting a seed of some kind look to the whole sign house of Capricorn and your birth chart if you want to get more specific otherwise think about a Saturnian new beginning usually that means the foundation of something or something structural something pertaining to commitment time age duration seriousness so bra maturity commitment respect tradition it is an expansive new plan or development because it’s joopa terian but it comes from the realistic ground of Saturn which is going to be sometimes painful or sobering or it’s going to be about a long-term mature methodical commitment of some kind so you think about new visions new plans utilizing but utilizing lessons lineages or traditions from the past you have a marriage again of the new Jupiter and the old Saturn in the in at the start of some kind of new endeavor or some new chapter that’s opening in your life new teachers old lessons an emphasis on the long the slow and the patient path of progress but coming with excitement and some kind of new beginning an enthusiasm that’s welling up from the ground level of something like the excitement that you feel when cutting the ribbon to start you know digging the dirt to lay the foundation it’s that kind of basic fundamental enthusiasm that comes at the outset of a long serious committed project of some kind a plan and the potential to will that plan to realization through corrupt authoritarian rigid or severe means so this is also like I have a plan and I don’t care who stands in my way can be kind of as I like to say sometimes Machiavellian so again we’ll be have more on that later thank you everybody for tuning in I hope you appreciated this overview for the month you’ll have this in written form on my website nightlight astrology calm remember to check out my Kickstarter again we’re at 181 backers let’s try to get to 200 let’s see if we can get there pick up a year ahead reading when you do or discounted tuition for one of my courses I’d love to study with some of you guys next year next class starts in June of 2020 in the November of 2020 plus I have my advance year to program my horror II course lots of stuff on sale right now through the Kickstarter this is the way that I support myself and and my family this is big part of my living so if you love this channel if you tune into it regularly it gives something good to you and please pitch in if you’re able thank you again so much everyone we’ll see you again soon bye
