My Astro Assistant and Muse, Lily.
Your December Horoscopes are online here. As we enter the last month of 2014 together, I wanted to express my gratitude for the people in my life and even those I don’t know who read this blog and support the work that I do. When I look back over the year, I can see how I have learned so much more about this vast science/art/philosophy called astrology. I’d like to specifically name a few people.
First, I owe everything I know to my mentor and teacher, Emily Trinkaus. She not only got me excited about astrology, but also I believe she teaches a unique and powerful way of interpreting the planets and our relationship to them. If you have not read her 2015 predictions article in this month’s Mountain Astrologer, I urge you to check it out ASAP. Great stuff! Emily is also offering a DIY Teleclass called “Forecast Your New Year – DIY Astrology of 2015.” Check it out here.
I also am proud to be celebrating 2 years of working for the fabulous Jan Spiller. Thanks to Emily’s recommendation, I have had the honor of being on the Jan Spiller Support Team, where I write monthly horoscopes (the ones you see here), among other things. Jan, a world-renowned astrologer and the author of many books, including Astrology for the Soul, New Moon Astrology, Cosmic Love, The Astrology of Success and others, is dedicated to offering humanity empowering astrological information. I have learned so much these past few years and am excited about how much more I can expand my knowledge and skills under her direction and mentorship. Be sure and check out her newly designed website, launching this month here!
I’m also extremely grateful for everyone who has gotten a personal reading from me this year and/or recommended me to a friend. This type of word of mouth is the best marketing I could ever ask for. I’d say I’ve doubled or even tripled the amount of personal readings I’ve done this year compared to last year. Thank you!
I always have a bittersweet feeling at the end of the year. I’m nostalgic for the good times and sometimes it’s hard for me to move forward (I know, I’m an Aries!). But I have a lot of Earth in my chart that tends to make me hold on to the familiar and the sentimental. However, there’s a lot I’ll be ready to release. 2014 wasn’t an easy year for many of us. If Saturn in Scorpio didn’t get ya during 2013, it probably came knocking this year, reminding you of your deepest fears and losses. Well, the good news is that Saturn is heading into Sagittarius December 23 and we should all feel a bit of a lift in our spirits.
I could go on to mention the potential challenges of the Uranus-Pluto Square, which will be exact on December 14, but you can read that in your monthly horoscope. Instead, I choose to focus on everything I am grateful for and I am making some new commitments to myself. I’m ready to raise the standards for myself and engage in daily practices that expand my skills in astrology (and music!).
Thanks, everyone, for the support, motivation and inspiration. I say we finish this year in solidarity as we pledge to move into 2015 ready to be stronger, wiser and kinder.
