Sunday December 9, 2012 – noonish
Topics – End of the Mayan Calendar
Look ahead to astrological aspects of 2013
Topics for meetings in 2013
Fee – None, your attendance is all we ask.
For this meeting we will be calling on the ladies, Dominique and Rachel to add their insights. We will first take a look at the astrological signatures for 12/21/12 and the end of the Mayan calendar. Then we will break out our “crystal balls” and take a look at what to look forward to in 2013. We will wrap it up by making a “wish list” of topics for 2013. Bring your questions, your best predictions and your ideas for 2013.
For Sunday December 9, we still have two planets retrograde, Jupiter in Gemini and Uranus, getting ready to turn direct, in Aries. Scorpio is loaded with Saturn, Venus, north Node and Mercury. The Moon is void-of-course in Libra but moving fast and will join the crowd in Scorpio by 2 pm. The south Node is conjunct the fixed star Algol, female passion and intensity also known as the “don’t lose your head” star. It is considered one of the most malefic of the fixed stars. Conjunct the south Node (karmic past) be prepared in case old hurts/wounds/passions arise again. Meanwhile, the north Node (karmic present/future) is on the midpoint between Venus and Mercury. Expect feelings, thoughts and words to be intense.
As the meeting begins, we have the four mutable signs on the angles. Be open and flexible. The chart pattern is a locomotive with the Moon as the engine and retrograde Jupiter as the caboose. The Moon is moving fast (more than 14 degrees/day; average is 13 degrees) so while this isn’t exactly a runaway train, it is moving fast and won’t be able to stop quickly. Pressure continues to be on retrograde Jupiter as it is trying to pull away from the train. The Moon is about 70 degrees behind the Sun and in the finishing degrees of the third quarter, crisis of consciousness square. Time to start preparing for the next new Moon on December 13 which occurs less than three hours before Uranus stations direct.

We still have some used astrology books for sale which I will bring. Price, $1, each! First come, first served.
Spencer and I have talked about this and because of the ongoing expense of the fees for the meetup site and costs of copies and such, we are going to add a container for “love donations” to help defray some of the costs. This is entirely voluntary. There is no fee or charge for attending this meetup; this is just to help defray some of the costs.
For the talk-around we will do the usual “big 3,” Sun, Moon and ascendant signs if you know them. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer. You should before the meetup is over. Bring your chart if you have one; if not, and you would like one, send me your particulars (date, time and place of birth) and I will be glad to generate it and send it to you. I will also print one and bring it to the meetup for you.
