December Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

On the 2nd of the month Jupiter moves into Capricorn where it will remain for the next year. During its time in Capricorn something will get shaken up or changed at work. This change pushes you into a new role, position, or simply gives more responsibility at work or in school. This role may feel like a lot of pressure at first, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. You should try to watch what comes out of your mouth after Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th. Just because something is true doesn’t mean that it needs to be said. An old friend or colleague will pop back into your life with an opportunity around the Gemini Full Moon on the 12th; don’t think, just act. If you do gig or freelance work you can expect an influx of money after Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th. Opportunities may just fall into your lap! The next eclipse season starts off with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon on the 26th. This will likely pertain to the change at work or school I mentioned before, if so you’ll be pushed to get real about your long term goals. Mercury goes into Capricorn on the 29th which will urge you to speak upon those new goals you may have.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and during its time there you’ll experience a change or release in regards to your beliefs. Next, the moon is full in Gemini on the 12th. Under this moon you’ll run into someone and have a conversation that leads to a breakthrough; it could be an old friend or a complete stranger.

With Venus moving into Aquarius on the 20th you’ll find that you’re better able to separate your emotions from your work. Expect to get a lot done in those weeks that Venus is in the forward thinking air sign. Eclipse season starts on the 26th with a solar eclipse on the Capricorn New Moon. A decision around what you’re currently building or working towards must be made. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more information. Lastly, on the 29th Mercury moves into Capricorn and it’s likely that someone may be using information against you… but that person may be you!

Leo

On the 2nd of the month Jupiter moves into Capricorn for its yearlong transit. This year will force you to look at your goals more soberly and release the unattainable. This doesn’t mean you need to give up on your dreams; you just need to get serious about them. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th and a mentor or educator may come into your life and quickly lead you down the rabbit hole. Trust this process and the path it will take you on. The Full Moon in Gemini is on the 12th and it presents you with an opportunity to look at something in the past in a completely new light.

Virgo

This next year is sure to be full of opportunity and expansion for you with the help of Jupiter in Capricorn, which begins its transit on the 2nd of December. Your ambition is emphasized while Jupiter is moving through this career driven sign. After Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th an event will pull you into the role of a teacher. If you already are a teacher, this transit challenges you to expand your methods. The Gemini Full Moon is on the 12th and things will not go as planned, so don’t hold yourself too tightly to your to do list, try to go with the flow (you can do it, I believe in you!) On the 20th Venus will move into community focused Aquarius. Under this transit you may have to use new technology at work or in your business, release control of this situation and simply lean in to change. Eclipse season is already here again, and it’s starting off with a solar eclipse on the December 26th New Moon in Capricorn.

Leading up the 9th, when Mercury moves into Sagittarius, you may begin to feel a bit lost (as you do from time to time.) Don’t be afraid of talking about how you feel because this transit supports conversations about where your path is leading. By the time the 12th rolls around, and the moon is full in Gemini, you’ll get some release from some of your deeper emotions. You’ll be able to let go of something that you no longer need to carry around. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th and during its time in the celestial sir sign you’ll be pushed out of a contract.

This transit provides you with the skills to be able to negotiate what you want and need at work.

Capricorn

It’s going to be a beautiful year for us goats with Jupiter moving into Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. We’re a naturally melancholic bunch, but under this transit our lives expand out in all directions. Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9thand at some point in the 20 days of this transit a speech (read: tirade) falls on the right ears. This presents a new opportunity to you, look to your Sagittarius ruled house for more information. Expect a big shifting energy with the Gemini Full Moon on the 12th, the last Full Moon of the year. An intellectual pursuit or project may shift into something completely different under that moon. Chiron stations direct on the same day, and through this past transit you’ve gotten to a place of deep self understanding; you’re ready to climb the mountain at 2x speed. With Venus moving into Aquarius on the 20th it’s finally time to upgrade some technology in your life, a new phone, laptop, program, whatever. The new eclipse season begins with a solar eclipse on the December 26th New Moon in Capricorn. This is a call to properly align your feelings with your current goals. Getting into your deep emotions surrounding a goal helps to program your subconscious and later see those goals come to fruition. Mercury moves into Capricorn as well on the 29th which enhances your ability to articulate yourself. Your honesty is needed under this transit.

Aquarius

With Jupiter beginning its yearlong transit through Capricorn on the 2nd, your own Saturnian energy is coaxed out into the forefront. This manifests as a year of lucky opportunities in regards to goals and hard work. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more information about how this will affect you personally. People listen to you with keen ears after Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 9th. Your passion inspires passion in others. The Gemini fFull Moon on the 12th is a catalyst for finally releasing a negative influence in your life. Just sit back and allow things to pull you away from this person, habit, or thought pattern. Venus moves into your sign, Aquarius, on the 20th. This transit makes you more affable and affluent so long as you stick to your authenticity and let it guide you. There is a solar eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn on the 26th; this is the beginning of a new eclipse season. A new career opportunity falls into your lap, but this opportunity pulls your focus in a new direction. That’s ok, it’s meant to be. After Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 29th, you can expect an opportunity to lead to a constructive rebuilding of something that was broken.

Pisces

Jupiter begins its transit through Capricorn on the 2nd of the month. This is a lucky year in regards to both stumbling upon and creating opportunities around your long term life goals. Look to your Capricorn ruled house for more insight into how this will play out in your own life. Mercury will be in Sagittarius from the 9th through the 28th of December and at some point during its time there you’ll be pushed to attend an event with people you don’t know. A revived sense of inspiration waits for you there. The final Full Moon of the year is a Gemini Full Moon on the 12th. On that day a door will close on an old and no longer needed friendship. Allow it to come to an end. Venus moves into Aquarius on the 20th and this is a good time for gig work and projects with friends. I suggest you avoid signing any contracts during this transit though. The first solar eclipse of the new eclipse season is on the 26th, which falls under the New Moon in Capricorn. This powerful moon offers an opportunity to take a sober look at your current money goals and amend them to better fit your ability. It’ll be a necessary dose of realism. You’ll have an opportunity to talk about these new goals or negotiate for them once Mercury also moves into Capricorn on the 29th. During this transit communication leads to money making opportunities.

Money ‘Scopes by Darla Downing

 

Aries
The bills may seem endless this month, Aries. Every day you may receive a new letter asking for money owed. All this financial stress may lead to exhaustion. However, Venus Retrograde, which starts on the 5th can help to consolidate credit, make payment plans, and offer debt relief. Calling in a financial advisor, or asking for advice from others, on the 12th will help elevate your assets on the 26th. Don’t be a hero, use your fiery energy to get assistance, instead of falling victim to endless bills.

Taurus

While others may be scrambling to keep their livelihood afloat this month, you are mostly concerned with partnerships—deciding what projects and people to invest your money and time in. The 5th causes you to rethink recent endeavors, giving you the option to renegotiate recent contracts. The 26th gives you clarity, as you may possibly renege on a deal. Listen to your intuition this month, if a deal, contract, or situation doesn’t feel right—let it go, move on to the next project right away and don’t waste time on nonsense.
Gemini 
Your intellectual nature often motivates you to logically assess work and financial matters. However, October leaves you feeling lost, as your pristine crystal clear judgement is now foggy. Disappointments at work on the 18th and 19th may force you to feel lost in terms of your career, as feelings of inadequacy come to surface. The 20th and 22nd urge you to take control of financial and career power dynamics. But, you may take a step back, opting to ride the wave before taking any actions, due to your lack of career motivation and uncertainty this month.
Cancer 
Living in a rich girl’s world this October allows you to step out of your shell and spend the fruits of your labor on forbidden pleasures. This is quite exciting for you, dear crab, as you often spend frugally. The 5th and the 26th jumpstart your urge to invest on passion projects. Just be watchful over your investments and contracts with others on the 24th, as a “trusted” party may lead you astray on the 27th.
Leo
Often the life of the party, you tend to overspend quite often. This will cause issues in October, as your generous heart has left you scrambling for cash. As Venus starts to glide backwards on October 5th, you will immediately start to feel the financial pinch. Don’t stress, sweet lion! Use October to revise your monetary plan and create a budget. Even though you may feel financially overwhelmed and your bank account may be underwhelmed, you have the opportunity to enhance your assets with simple planning and foresight, which will allow you to feel more in control of your finances by the 26th.
Virgo
Spending money frivolously with friends this past month sure has put a drain on your once lush bank account. October begins with the heat on your finances, causing you to feel the financial drain on the 3rd and 7th. The 31st brings a new chance to revise your finances, as Venus moves backwards through your house of finances, offering you an opportunity to change the game for November.
Libra
This month takes a bite out of your bank account, Libra. As your planetary ruler, Venus, glides backwards in the financial sector of your chart (starting on October 5th), the next 41 days will prove to be taxing on you, creating much anxiety around money. Be cautious this month! Do not spend your cash on fanciful inclinations and desires. Try to create a penchant for coupon clipping and bargain deals, which will help you reassess your wallet by Halloween, when Venus aligns with your Sun, thus, allowing you to spend your savings on a lovely costume, drinks, and fun with friends.
Scorpio 
October may prove to be challenging for you, Scorpio. Venus kicks off her retrograde journey October 5th, on your Sun, forcing you to make minor financial touch ups. This may come as a surprise to you, after all, you are usually financially responsible. The 9th gives you the opportunity to address your current financial missteps, giving you the chance to clear your current monetary lulls on the 23rd, by bringing in an advisor on the 24th to help you budget.

Sagittarius

Your current financial state may be stressful, as you’re nearing your account minimum. Luckily for you, Sag, your friends step in on October 2nd and offer you financial support. While you may view their kindness as unnecessary, accepting their help on the 4th, will allow you to be at ease on the 5th. Be aware, the loan does come with strings. Try to make proper guidelines and boundaries on the 7th and 9th, by openly discussing a payback plan. If not, the 22nd will prove to be challenging with your peers and your wallet.

Capricorn 

Known for your work horse drive and determination, you often place all your efforts into your career. However, this month, you are swept away by politics, dedicating yourself more as a SJW than a workaholic. Your charisma will be placed on humanitarian efforts, starting on the 5th, as unsavory news hits the airways. The 14th gives you an opportunity to assess your beliefs, creating a platform to express yourself, allowing for you to raise money for your cause on the 18th, 26th, and 31st.
Aquarius
All work and no play can make your loving cup feel under nourished and appreciated. October 5th forces you to dedicate your energy toward work, as major shifts and transformations at the workplace are underway, making you feel like a fish out of water. This may cause frustrations within, as you won’t have time to enjoy the frivolities of life for most of October. Keep the faith, dear Aquarius! The 29th allows you to burn off some steam as work issues clear up, allowing for you to celebrate Halloween with friends with no worries.

Pisces

With your head mostly in the clouds this month, your finances will take a sudden windfall. The 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 13th will cause utter confusion regarding your dwindling assets. As you struggle to keep your finances above water, in the first half of the month, try to keep a diary of your spending. The 18th and 19th boost your assets, allowing for financial clarity on the 29th. Expect a monetary gift from your spirits on Halloween, as you are the recipient of a wonderful financial surprise.

Blessings WitchyWisdoms Readers! My name is Analisa and I am here to give a quick intro on how to discover your past life Karma using the birth chart.

A lot of us have different reasons for being interested in astrology. It can be fun to see trends in how we relate to one another, as well as how we perceive people through their astrological archetype. But the birth chart holds a key so much larger than just our personality traits; your personal life purpose in relation to your Karmic mission on planet Earth.

 The birth chart in astrology I like to refer to as your “cosmic birthmark.” It is a celestial stamp imprinted into you at your time of birth, mapping out themes and potential challenges one will face in their personal development.

The birth chart is also believed to hold the answers to past lives, and shows us what past Karma we have come here to work out.

Many western people have a general understanding of Karma. “What goes around comes around.” This is true, but there are many layers to this understanding that go beyond.

 

The Story of Rahu and Ketu

In astrology the way we determine our past life Karma, is by looking at the placements of two energetic points located within the chart. These points are called Rahu and Ketu, and are also known as your North and South Node. These points are not planets, but are energetic points determined by the magnetic pull between the Moon and the Earth.

In Vedic mythology Rahu and Ketu was originally one god, a dragon god who disguised itself and in turn betrayed Lord Vishnu,the god who was responsible for protecting the universe. The dragon drank a special nectar meant for other deities that in turn made the dragon god immortal.

Upset, Lord Vishnu severed the head of the dragon, Rahu became the head, and Ketu became the severed body, or tail of the dragon.

This dismemberment is symbolic in representing the disconnection between the head- knowledge- and the body/heart- spirit, that we enter into our lives as humans.

 

How to Find Your Past Life Karma

In astrology whatever house and sign your South Node falls in, is the past life Karma you are required to heal in this life. Whatever house and sign your North Node falls in is what direction in life you are supposed to be moving towards.

In order to do this you will need to have your birth chart generated for you either by an Astrologer or using a website like astro.com to generate a free chart.

Using David Bowie’s chart, we can locate his South and North Node placements finding the above symbols, although in the astro.com generated charts, they do not include the glyph of the South Node but it would be exact opposite of the North Node in the chart.
Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 2.09.32 PM

In David Bowie’s chart we can see that his North Node is located in his 4th house of home and family in the sign of Gemini. This means his South Node is in the 10th house of occupation in the sign of Sagittarius.

If we were to look at David Bowie’s life in its entirety we could see that by the end of his life he began to work more in the direction of his North Node.

In the first half of his life David Bowie was much more focused on the path of his South Node, which was career and public recognition. Being in the 10th house and in the sign of Sagittarius means that he potentially in a past life was a teacher or did some kind of worldly travel for work revolved around enlightening others or educating people around broader philosophical ideas. He also very well could have been a musician in a past life as well having the South Node in the sign of Sagittarius- a common dominant sign in the charts of musicians. He also could have been some kind of religious leader. He was obviously attracted to that life in his younger years- bringing that karma with him into this life.

But in David Bowie’s later part of his life he developed severe health issues that prevented him from touring the world.On his last world tour, he had to cancel in the middle of it and return home due to unforeseen illness. He then spent the remainder of his life living very privately with his family (4th house.) And no longer was as focused on fame or recognition in the same way as when he was younger. This was his karma to fulfill in this life, and in one way or another, his fate pushed him along into that direction.

With this simplified and generic break down of the North and South Node you can see how it is beneficial to understand your North and South Nodes in your birth chart and the influence of the energy within the personal path of your own life.

I always feel when I am doing a chart, the most important piece to guide the client to is unlocking the key to your Karma through the Lunar Nodes as it is showing you the path you are meant to be leading in this life, and the karma you are meant to be healing.

I hope this article helps  you to want to discover your personal karmic life path and help you to see the many layers in which the birth chart can help guide us in our lives.
