Astrology for Healers and Therapists – December 2018

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations.  That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive.  Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way. 

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding.  The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory.  If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the ‘Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists’.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in September when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day.  Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one.  It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month.  Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

The last part of last month tended to be an emotional roller-coaster. Let us hope that things simmer down this month.

The week beginning the 2nd December shows that Pluto is still seemingly unaspected. Mercury has moved back into Scorpio, but apart from the Moon’s rapid race around the heavens forming aspects both easy and challenging, the rest of the planetary aspects remain the same as last week except that the challenge between the Mars/Neptune conjunction and the Sun/Jupiter Mercury conjunction is stronger.

 

Mutable has lost a sign to Fixed, whilst Fire has lost a sign to Air.

Perhaps things show the beginnings of settling down a tad. At least there is the possibility of a bit of thought being brought to bear rather than just reaction.

 

Counsellors – it is going to be hard to channel Client’s energy without incurring their defensive attitude. Just be careful.

 

Healers – Everything still suggests a rather unsettled situation with Patients liable to experience psychosomatic situations that could suddenly flare up at any time.

The week of the 09th December reveals a very empty chart!!  Although Mercury has resumed a forward movement, Mercury, Jupiter as well as Pluto are all seemingly unaspected.  Mars and Neptune couldn’t be closer in the heavens.

 

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed. Air has both its signs, one to Water and the other to Earth.

A person cannot sustain any emotional state indefinitely and this week individuals are left in a limbo, a numbness to life all around.

 

Counsellors – You will have difficulty reaching through to Clients this week. Only a very gentle approach will show any results.

 

Healers – Peace and harmony will be the mantras for any worthwhile healing to take place. Patients will be very sore and smarting from life’s brickbats.

The week beginning the 16th December sees aspect lines in abundance once again, but note that three of them are formed by the fast moving Moon.  Mercury has moved forwards into Sagittarius again, and all planets are now aspected.  Saturn has a line of ease with Venus, Pluto has a line of ease with Mars and Neptune has a line of ease with Venus, as does the Sun and Uranus. The Sun still has that persistent challenge with Mars.

 

Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable which now dominates the Modal scene. Earth and Water both lose a sign each to Fire, which now dominates the Elemental scene.

It is a new beginning or a picking up the threads again. People have a desire to move forwards again and make concessions if necessary.  It is still a reactive situation, however, with not too much thinking going into the process.

 

Counsellors – You can resume a more normal approach this week. It will be a collective sigh of relief.

 

Healers – Despite the dearth of Air the energetic scene will be quite lively this week, although stability may be difficult to establish.

 

 

The week beginning 23rd December sees the Sun moved into Capricorn.  Mercury and Jupiter and now conjunct.  Pluto is once again seemingly out of the picture and unaspected.  There is a Grand Trine with the Moon at the weekend.

 

Cardinal has gained a sign from Mutable, whilst Fire has lost two signs, one to Earth and the other to Water.

Although there are signs of considerable tension it looks as if any outburst will be short lived, with the weekend possibly the best time of the week emotionally.

 

Counsellors – A couple of weeks ago there was only pain and heartache evident. Now there is much you can reflect back that is positive and optimistic.

 

Healers – That dearth of Air is beginning to be troublesome. Watch out for conditions particularly associated with the Lung and Large Intestine meridians.

 

The week beginning 30th December and change is in the air.  Jupiter and Mercury are no longer conjunct, Pluto has a line of ease with Venus, Mars and Uranus are essentially unaspected, and although the line of ease between the Sun and Uranus has disappeared, there is now one between the Sun/Saturn conjunction and Neptune.

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Water has lost a sign to Air.

Perhaps New Year resolutions are coming into play but certainly there are indications of a change of heart, attitude and direction. It looks to be a time of sudden swift changes of fortune.

 

Counsellors – If you are working this week then I suggest you go along with the prevailing optimism and work that into your reflections with Clients.

 

Healers – Hopefully that dearth of Air is coming to an end. It is still a lively energetic situation.

 

I wonder what 2019 will bring.
