This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of December 3rd 2014 for 1 - Eb "eb" or Road in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Mars entering Aquarius, the Gemini Full Moon, Jupiter turning retrograde, Venus entering Capricorn and the sixth Uranus Pluto square.
December 3rd is 1 - Eb "eb" or Road which carries the themes of destiny, guidance, travel, vessel of time, dew from heaven, abundance, organization, caretaking, empathy, growth, service to others, the ladder that connects heaven and earth, the life-force also known as Prana in the Vedic tradition and Chi in the Chinese culture, harvest, and humility. Ian Lungold described Road as "sometimes referred to as the sign of Grass, which is the most bountiful of all life forms but is also the most humble." The road of life leads us to our true destiny on the spiritual path we all must travel. This thirteen day period would be a good time to humbly offer to serve others.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Eb "eb" or Road trecena, on the 3rd all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Uranus which appears to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Remember the themes of retrograde planets are the review the past, re-evaluate, reminisce and we can see these themes being played out. Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation through the unexpected rebellion of the individual. Retrograde Uranus in Aries will have people wanting to hurry the process of getting free. To push the river of revolution whether it be personal or political. Being an outer planet, Uranus creates events that we "respond" to. The inner planets effect us personally as individuals, but the outer planets change the landscape which effects us as a collective and as individuals within humanity.
The big change during the Road trecena is Jupiter changing directions, with Jupiter appearing to be stopped at the opening of Eb, prior to appearing to move retrograde or in reverse motion from the perspective of the Earth on December 8th at 22 degrees of Leo. When a planet is stopped it is said to be at the peak of its power. Jupiter was the king of the gods, and the planet is about good fortune, opportunities, faith, religion, beliefs and expansion. Leo is about leadership, creativity, drama, entertainment, and children, so we will see these themes expanded at the beginning of December. Jupiter entered into its retrograde shadow period on September 13, 2014 which developed opportunities that will be reviewed when Jupiter turns retrograde on December 8th. Mostly what I find with Jupiter retrograde, as with any retrograde cycle there is a review of the past, and with Jupiter what gets reviewed are missed opportunities. When Jupiter turns direct on April 7th 2015 at 12 degrees of Leo, we will have become aware of a change in course regarding how we will expand our opportunities for creativity and leadership. Jupiter will take a few days to build momentum in moving reverse. In your personal life you may want to look at 12 to 22 degrees Leo to become aware of the house that is currently feeling Jupiter's expansive influence. For me, Jupiter is in my 3rd house of communications, self expression, family ties and short distance travel. So this retrograde time I may find myself reviewing my creative communication activities and deciding what activities are worth expanding and what situations are draining my resources with little material benefit. Time will tell.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
December 3rd 2014 is 1 - Eb "eb" or Road: unity experienced through serving your community in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while the Taurus Moon harmonized with Neptune and finds support from Pluto. The lunar energy moves from greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to later bringing out intense emotions and stimulating sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships.
The 4th is 2 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: duality experienced through maintaining the home, while Mars enters Aquarius, which brings more energy to the mental plane for a month and a half. Once people are committed intellectually, actions are swift. This is the planet of aggression in the sign of freedom. I think we'll continue to become aware of people struggling for their individual liberation along with all forms of oppression being challenged, through being assertive and possibly violent as humanity feels the urge to break the bonds of restriction from governments, religions, and corporations. During this time Mars is in Uranus' sign Aquarius and Uranus is in Mars' sign of Aries, we have mutual reception between the two planets. This can be seen as the planets are allies and strengthen each other, particularly when they form an exact sextile on December 20th. I would keynote these forces as unexpected action and aggressive upheaval, but also as assertive ingenuity and humanitarian drive. Also on the 4th Venus trines Jupiter, which is one of the best transits except for its short duration, as it brings ease, grace, and pleasant social interactions. As with any Jupiter Venus transit, this can bring laziness and self indulgent behavior. Most will experience this as a needed break from the "daily grind". This is great energy for social interactions, entertainment, and amusements. Romance and financial interests are favored under this transit, along with traveling or taking a vacation the begins at this time as it indicates that the journey will be fun, enlightening, and rewarding. Due to the low energy of this transit, this is not the best time to start any enterprise that requires a great deal of energy. Also on the 4th the Sun trines Uranus, which colors the day's energy to engage in new and different activities that lead to self discovery and a greater understanding of the world. This is more exciting energy than we have most days. People will be more perceptive and able make changes with a greater understanding of the interrelationships within their lives. Expect folks to be more forthright in expressing themselves without trying to filter what is expressed for the benefit of the listener. This day is good for studying science, something technical, or occult subjects such as astrology, because it brings the ability to find greater understanding of any discipline that reveals new and exciting aspects of the universe. On the other hand this will be a difficult day for just following the daily routine, so get out there and do something you've always wanted to. It's a great day to cross something off your "bucket list" and you'll probably gain some new self awareness in the process. Also on the 4th the Moon in Taurus is challenged by Jupiter which brings out benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment.
December 5th is 3 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: taking action through enjoying nature, while Mercury trines Uranus. Uranus is the higher octave planet to Mercury. Mercury being about our personal thinking and communicating, while Uranus is about transpersonal communing with something larger than ourselves. This is a very stimulating transit which raises conscious awareness and brings more of a love for life, a desire to seize the day "Carpe Deum". New ideas come quickly with solutions for a problem that has been perplexing, somehow available under this influence, after being unavailable in the days leading up to this time period. This energy is looking for a break from routine to go out and do something out of the ordinary. It favors studying a new topic, particularly astrology, science, math, technology and the occult. Expect some electric conversations under this influence. Also on the 5th the Moon is opposed by Saturn, finds support from Mars, and is challenged by Neptune. The day begins with feeling lonely and isolated, then later feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner, and finally daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality.
The 6th is 4 - Men "men" or Eagle: stability through seeing from a higher perspective, with the Gemini Full Moon opposed by Mercury and the Sun, which underscores the theme of learning. Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius are seeking an education and travel to learn the truth that gives life meaning. The Gemini Moon is curious and seeks to gather information that may have value in the future. So you may want to seek answers to the important questions in your life under this influence. Full moons are a time of tension as the Sun in Sagittarius is about balancing freedom to explore through experience with having perspective to gather information for intellectual pursuits, represented by the Moon in Gemini. The lunation is in harmony with Uranus and Jupiter which brings pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, and feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness.
December 7th is 5 - Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: empowerment through introspection, meditation and forgiveness, while the Moon is opposed by Venus and finds support from Neptune. The days lunar influence goes from pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, to later our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work.
The 8th is 6 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: being in the flow through gratitude for Mother Earth, while Jupiter turns retrograde in Leo. Retrogrades bring a time of review. Jupiter is about opportunities, so this may begin a time when people review their missed opportunities, particularly related to creativity or children. For some this might be a time of thinking of a lost love with whom you considered having a family with or some creative endeavor that has dropped by the wayside. Jupiter retrograde also has us reviewing any expansion we have encountered since Jupiter moved into Leo on July 16th of this year. Also on the 8th the Sun merges with Mercury which stimulates our social interactions and conversations, particularly with people who are part of our new direction, and in Sagittarius this could be related to travel. Also illumination comes to some of the dark areas of our minds which brings forward information that was previously in the shadows. This alignment emphasize an increase in conversations, although folks are more inclined to talk than listen. Being a conjunction, this brings the initiative to start something new, as Mercury rules commerce and the exchange of ideas, this could be expansion that involves travel for increasing our education. This also brings a sharpness to the thinking process and is a good time to make plans for the future. Also on the 8th the Cancer Moon is opposed by Pluto and challenged by Uranus which brings deep emotions rising to the surface and folks acting hasty and jumping to conclusions that may not be correct.
December 9th is 7 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: reflection through being introspective, with the Moon in Cancer is supported by Saturn which brings the perspective of having a sober realistic view of life. The 10th is 8 Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: balance through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Venus enters Capricorn, which brings caution and carefulness to love relationships and social interactions. Capricorn brings a practicality to love. It also seeks security in partnering which includes material comforts. Also on the 10th the Leo Moon is opposed by Mars and supported by Uranus. The day begins with people to be more excitable and irritable which can cause problems in our personal lives, and wraps up with having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive.
December 11th is 9 - "ah-how" : patience experienced through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, with the Moon in Leo finds support from the Sun, and Mercury, and merges with Jupiter. The days lunar energy moves from feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, to later being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, and finally having good feelings and expressing generosity towards others.
The 12th is 10 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: manifestation through nurturing new beginnings, with Mercury trine Jupiter, is great energy for making plans for the future from an overview perspective. This transit does influence us to take the easy way out and avoid difficult intellectual and mental problems. Mercury supported by Jupiter is good for business dealings and signing contracts, as we find our minds are sharper to see opportunities that normally are overlooked. This is optimistic and promotes positive thinking and studying subjects that deal with high level thought such as law, philosophy, religion. Also on the 12th the Moon is challenged by Saturn, supported by Venus, and opposed by Neptune, which begins with people feeling lonely or isolated, then later enjoying social interactions with others, and finally feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt.
December 13th is 11 - Ik "eek" or Wind: resolution through communication, while the Virgo Moon finds support from Pluto which has us feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto.
The 14th is 12 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: understanding through contemplating the stars, with the Sun trine Jupiter, which is one of the most positive transits bringing enthusiasm and optimism, it can have the effect of people feeling lazy, but I would encourage folks to use this energy to accomplish something good for yourself. This is a day to project positive energy into the environment that can have some influence on your affairs and accomplishing something you desire. Some will see this as "dumb luck", but this transit has its roots in something that was done in the recent past. This is great energy for making changes in your life without feeling a sense of loss. This is also good for studying something of interest to you, particularly subjects that help us to see the world as a whole. Also on the 14th Venus sextiles Neptune, inspiring creative and romantic imagination, and is very nice energy between the planet of romantic love and her higher octave the planet of unconditional love. This might be a time when we experience universal love through our personal relationships. This is also very creative and imaginative energy, that seeks and appreciates beauty. Exposure to art, music, or poetry could help renew our consciousness during the pleasant dreamy fog of this transit. Also being in a pleasant environment such as beautiful spot in the country, a lovely garden, or looking at a majestic view will be very powerful during this transit. Neptune may give us a deeper sensitivity to the feelings and needs of our loved ones, which we are more than likely going to want to satisfy. Some may have the feeling of a soul union with another during this alignment. This is a good day to indulge in daydreams and fantasies. Also on the 14th the last quarter Moon in Virgo is challenged by the Sun and Mercury, and in harmony with Saturn, which starts with challenges to following a daily routine, then later folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with, and finally having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective.
December 15 is 13 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: movement to the next stage through planting seeds and making new connections, with Uranus square Pluto, which brings the sixth of seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto. The themes of revolution, transformation, tension between the material and spiritual worlds, upheaval, along with death and rebirth are particularly potent at this time. Acceleration of transformation related to the revolution and evolution is increasing exponentially. This is the peak of the energy for unexpected change as old ways, old structures are crumbling to prepare us for transformation. This is one of the undercurrents that will be most powerful during the continuing challenging square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn at 12 degrees 35 minutes. These challenging angles between Uranus, the planet of disruption, revolution and unexpected change in Aries, the sign of the individual, challenging Pluto the planet of death and destruction but also rebirth, in the sign of Capricorn representing structures including governments and corporations, is the most powerful transit of our time. These two titans have exact confrontations an amazing seven times between 2012 and 2015. Usually this type of transit occurs three or five times. Seven times is unusual and very intense. As I've said before the world will be a very different place by the end of 2015. When looking at the chart for the sixth Uranus Pluto square, I was struck by Chiron, the wounded healer at 13 Degrees Pisces forming a sextile to Pluto and semi-sextile to Uranus, so this square brings depth and intensity to our healing, which is a wonderful transformative force for releasing old wounds that have been an obstacle to freedom for humanity, from the decaying power structures. These Uranus Pluto squares have made us aware of the financial and political systems being slowly, and sometimes almost invisibly, compromised like a sand castle as the tide is coming in. The Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius are conjunct the degree of the center of our galaxy, bringing purpose and higher intelligence coming in through the portal on the Galactic Center. The Sun - Mercury - Galactic Center conjunction forms a trine with Jupiter in Leo, barely moving as it begins its retrograde cycle. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and the Sun rules Leo, so we have mutual reception within this very positive supportive relationship. This indicates, with Jupiter retrograde review of past missed opportunities and perhaps the illumination to heal or repair what was lost. In the context of the Uranus Pluto square chart this may be experienced as humanity demanding fairness from the leaders. The Moon 1 degree Libra sextiles Saturn 29 degrees Scorpio, to bring emotional (Moon) balance (Libra) when dealing with limitations (Saturn) that have until now been concealed (Scorpio). Saturn has been in mutual reception with Pluto for several years and on December 23rd that ends, as Saturn enters Sagittarius, which will allow Pluto to act even more powerfully without Saturn's restriction impacting the full force of transformation in dismantling what is no longer of service. Mars 8 degrees of Aquarius widely sextiles Uranus, another mutual reception, brining ingenuity to the warrior archetype, with new ways to deal with those in power, and Pluto brings covert possibilities. Venus sextile Neptune, a harmonic alignment of planetary octaves, emphasizes the feminine power to influence change through illumination and illusion regarding the crumbling patriarchy as we move into a new beginning after the seventh Uranus Pluto square in March of 2015. Also on the 15th the Libra Moon is challenged by Venus and supported by Mars, which shifts from having pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better, to later feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Road trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
