Astrology for Healers and Therapists – December 2017

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 December 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.

 

Last month moved from escapist fantasy to acceptance of real life responsibilities. Can this be sustained during the Sagittarian month?

 

The week beginning the 3rd December revels a temporary T-Square on Neptune as the Moon races around the heavens. Venus has moved into Sagittarius and Pluto seems to be unaspected.  The Mars challenge to Pluto is now a line of ease with Saturn and Mercury.  Mercury appears to be stationary in the chart.

 

Fixed has lost a sign to Mutable whilst Water has lost two signs, one to Fire and the other to Air.

A swift and temporary escapist ploy is likely to be employed although an equally swift and temporary effort may result to face any ensuing crisis.

 

Counsellors – Privately you might judge your Clients but that is a most unprofessional stance. Try to accept their flights of fancy as they could be life preservers in disguise.

 

Healers – The predominance of Fire may be unsettling and cause ripples of concern to the Hearth or Small Intestine meridians but of more concern could well be the dearth of Earth and implications to Spleen and Stomach.

The week of the 10th December sees the action centred on Sagittarius.  Mercury is now Retrograde and Mars has moved into Scorpio.

 

 

Cardinal gives up a sign to Fixed but Air has lost all its signs as it gives one to Earth andthe other to Water.

Oscillating effort is apparent as motivation calls for action but it cannot be sustained. There is not much rational thought here as reactive emotional response.

 

Counsellors – You will have your work cut out in trying to keep an even keel for Clients. You also cannot escape the short term bursts of effort required focus on relevant challenge.

 

Healers – the switch to zero Air signs with no Western equivalent means perhaps you need to pay very close attention to Lung and Large Intestine Meridians as well as the imbalance towards Heart and Small Intestine energies.

The week beginning the 17th December reveals half of the planets occupying Sagittarius. Mars is also unaspected.

 

 

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Earth has lost a sign to Fire.

Individuals will not be swayed by commonsense. Sudden shifts of thinking will lead to turn and turn about with consequences leading to uncertainty, bad decisions and personal anguish. Anger will be very evident with little restraint being shown.

 

Counsellors – Compassion must be foremost rather than challenge but no challenge will mean no growth or progress. Damage limitation will be the immediate goal rather than long term lessons learnt.

 

Healers – It will be frustratingly obvious that most of your efforts will come to nought as Patients seem determined to go their own sweet way to pain and injury.

 

The week beginning 24th December and both the Sun and Saturn have moved into Capricorn. Mars is once again moving forwards through the skies and the Sun, Saturn and Venus have formed a very tight conjunction.  All aspect lines seem to have intensified this week.

 

 

Mutable has lost two signs to Cardinal. Fire has lost three signs, two to Earth and one to Water.  Air still has no signs to its name.

A very sudden change of heart shows little thought behind the action but this is more a move of desperation. It  looks as if it pays off.

 

Counsellors – At long last Clients are prepared to take initiative even if consequences are not thought out. It is still a reactive chart.

 

Healers – Despite the lack of Air at least the dominance of Fire has been alleviated. The leadership of Capricorn here is a good healing sign so take heart once again.

 

The week beginning 31st December and Venus has moved into Capricorn. Saturn is unaspected and a temporary T-Square is formed on Neptune.   All line have reduced in intensity.

 

 

Cardinal has gained a sign from Mutable. Fire has lost a sign, Earth has gained one Water has lost one and Air has gained one.

Although there is plenty of evidence of a return to deception or self deception at least a slightly more rational outlook is creeping in. Fingers have been burnt but some lessons have been learnt.

 

Counsellors – You should find you can resume a more mixed approach of balanced model and technique. Don’t count too many chickens though!

 

Healers – Now it’s the turn of too much Stomach and Spleen activity / energy. Bleed it away to Metal or even Heart Constrictor or Triple Heater meridians.

What an end to the year!
