Morning Star: Daily Astrology for December 10, 2014

There is quite a bit happening in the sky today and it all begins with an opposition of the Moon in Leo to Mars in Aquarius at 6:39 AM. The Leo vs Aquarius polarity deals with rectifying individual needs with the needs of the collective, our community, our friends and our tribe. If Leo is prone to selfishness, then a socially conscious drive may cause conflict. At the same time, you cannot forget the individual needs of people when addressing the community at large either. ESPECIALLY not with the NN in Libra that is hell bent on the concepts of Justice, Fairness and Equality. I would love to blanket the world with Justice, Fairness and Equality. However, what I feel is fair may not seem fair to someone else. That kind of makes “Justice for All” a hard ideal to achieve.

At 11:42 AM, Venus moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn bringing a subtle shift to the energies in the sky. Venus is back from her wordly adventures and ready to get to work. She becomes less concerned with exploring and more concerned with dealing with the business at hand. She takes off her bohemian gear and replaces it with business attire.

By 11:18 PM tonight, the Moon in Leo is in trine to Uranus in Aries. Overlaying this trine to Uranus is a Yod formed between the Moon in Leo to Pluto in Capricorn (inconjunct at 10:58 PM) and Chiron in Pisces (inconjunct at midnight). Talk about a serious need for a gut check within our inklings toward freedom of self-expression and rebellion. I'm hearing Spock here, reminding us that the “Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” Is he right? Because the opposition between the Moon and Mars certainly brings this into question while the Yods (another more faint Yod is formed between the Moon, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn with Mars in Aquarius shooting right through the middle of it earlier in the day) with the Moon at the Apex put an exclamation point at the end of it.

How each individual has been personally affected by the changes occurring in our current world comes into play today. And, of course, the reactions to that will vary greatly. The main thing we are considering should be, “Ok..this and this and this is happening, what can I do about it?” But, that may not necessarily be how it goes. See, sometimes, people become selfish in the midst of chaos. Some people see chaos as an opportunity to loot for spoils. They look to add to the problem or take advantage in efforts toward personal gain. It's a pretty disgusting dynamic but it is certainly not unheard of.

Here's what I think is ironic about that. Looking to take advantage without taking into account the effects of our actions upon others is no different than someone who is given authority and abuses it. Both are the end result of an over-blown ego and a purely self-serving point of view. Yep. Same damn thing. But, the people that are looting will point to those in authority when ascribing blame while those in authority and abusing their power will point to supposed criminal action and a need for defense in light of it. When really both parties in question are selfish assholes who care about nothing more than furthering their own agenda. See? Ironic, eh? If you really gave a crap about your community and the world you are helping to create, you wouldn't be bashing in store windows and stealing from the people within your community. And, if you are in a position of authority and really have the best interests of the “people” in mind you wouldn't be looking to throw your weight around for your own benefit. Underneath all the pontificating bullshit lies the same mentality, though, neither side of this equation is likely to admit that to themselves let alone anyone else.

We can sit around and blame others all day long but none of it comes as a valid excuse for our own actions. So, in light of whatever situation you find yourself in today, instead of looking to who is to blame for your circumstances maybe it is a better idea to consider what changes need to be made on a personal level.

Tomorrow, the fiery energy in the sky reaches a peak point. The morning after this “Rush” the Moon meets Saturn by square creating a more obvious gut check in regard to everything I've just discussed in relation to the Yods in the sky today. We emotionally square off with our personal demons and some of us may rush about in a flurry of thoughtless activity only to smack up against a wall on the morning of the 12th. Get your personal perspective in check today in anticipation of that.
