WINTER SOLSTICE 2012 - USA and GLOBAL
DATA: December 21, 2012 @ 6:13 A.M. -
The figure for the Vernal Equinox always bears chief rule for the ensuing year and while the succeeding ingresses into the other cardinal points have also a pre-signification, they are subsidiary to the first-named. For clarification, see "Spring (Vernal) Equinox 2012," posted on March 13, 2012, which pinpointed weather as a major factor for the year and which stated in part:
"Sun, retrograde Mercury and Uranus in the 4th house of weather events will tell of a violent tale for the ensuing astrological year (March 2012 - March 2013)."
In this Winter Solstice chart, the planet Mercury conjoins the Sagittarian Ascendant while opposing retrograde Jupiter, the opposition reconciled by the 4th house Moon in Aries. This means the reconciling planet siphons off the energy of the opposing planets into 4th house matters...such as weather for the nation. Thus the theme of weather remains true.
The sign Aries in its influence on temperature is hot; we may then expect higher than normal temperatures over the ensuing winter.
When Aries is prominent in a chart, such as being on the cusp of the IC (Imum Coeli, Latin for "bottom of the sky), it shows much rain...the Moon in Aries in the 4th house will bring violence along with the rain, made severe at times due to Pluto square Moon. Uranus in the 4th house tends to sudden temperature changes, from hot to cold and then from cold to hot. He is a decidedly windy planet and brings wind storms of destructive violence. As this chart indicates wetness in general, we may expect sudden thunderstorms in which squalls of wind and electrical displays join with temporary downpours of rain.
The general state of the nation is dire. Sun conjunct Pluto in the 1st house square Uranus tells a tale of tremendous stress, disruption and intense experiences to be endured by the citizens. Any patience the people may have had up to this point goes missing during the course of the next three months.
Saturn, co-ruler of the 2nd house of the nation's wealth is in the 11th house (congress) in close sextile to Pluto. Note that Pluto rules tyrants, dictators, vultures and other birds that eat carrion. Look for the congress to grant yet more corporate welfare and especially to further the communist ideal of Agenda 21, supported by 3rd house afflicted
Neptune, which rules everything associated with the loss
of individual identity such as communism, the political ideology which would
merge the individual into the proletarian mass.
Neptune in Pisces as the Apex of a
T-Square involving Venus opposition Jupiter, describes not only the financial
bankruptcy of the country, but its spiritual bankruptcy as well.
The following addresses the global community:
December 21, 2012 has become famous because of the Maya vision of a geological change for this Era that would bring with it a change in human consciousness. This is reflected in the chart as the conjunction of Sun/Pluto in square to Uranus. The Sun symbolizes our psychological and spiritual center; Pluto symbolizes regeneration and our capacity for self-transformation; it is the planet of metamorphosis. Both Sun and Uranus symbolize Light. The changes in the vibrational frequencies of every living soul on the earth - man, woman, child, animal, plant, and mineral - will be accomplished via the stress of the square, which forces action, and the influence of Uranus, who grants to us the capacity to liberate ourselves from past limitations.
Jupiter in Gemini is conjoined the Royal Fixed Star Aldebaran - noted for integrity and courage - and the Apex of a Yod (inconjunct Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn). On one hand the danger here is one of over-reaching coupled with poor judgment, a danger that can be counter-acted by the application of common sense. The optimist will see this energy influence as expansion of consciousness, broadening social vision, and enriching moral development.
O HOLY virgin! clad in purest white,
Unlock heaven's golden gates and issue forth
Awake the dawn that sleeps in heaven; let light
Rise from the chambers of the east, and bring
The honey'd dew that cometh on waking day.
O radiant morning, salute the sun,
Roused like a huntsman to the chase, and with
Thy buskin'd feet appear upon our hills.
