In an unprecedented move, the entire land force of the British military has been given orders to leave their posts and return home for an extended 25-day Christmas holiday covering December 14th, 2012, through January 7th of 2013. The decision means all army barracks, Territorial Army buildings and other military sites in Britain will close for almost four weeks to, as has been offically announced, to reward the soldiers for a job well done at the Olympic Games held in London this past summer, and to simply save on the ole’ electric bill.

THE GROUND beneath our feet shifts this week, as four planets change signs and Jupiter stations retrograde. When a planet changes signs or direction, we experience a shift in our energetic foundation — sometimes subtly, sometimes more noticeably, depending on our own natal chart configuration.
It is rare to have so many planets making these shifts within a few days’ time. It indicates that we are now ready to shift our perspective and, in many ways, to take the next step.
Here’s the rundown for the week, ordered by time: Venus enters Virgo (Tuesday), Jupiter goes retrograde (Thursday), Mercury and Saturn both enter Scorpio (Friday), and Mars enters Sagittarius (Saturday).
OF THE PLANETS shifting this week, Saturn is the slowest moving, and so carries the greatest influence energetically. Saturn is known as the Teacher of the zodiac, since it requires us to be disciplined and responsible. If you’re familiar with the characters in the Harry Potter books, think of Saturn in the personage of Professor McGonagall — stern but fair, no-nonsense, but with our growth and learning always the top priority.… Read the rest

THE SECOND Pluto-Uranus square occurs this week, exact on Wednesday. We have been working with this influence for several weeks, so this energy should already feel somewhat familiar.
We may also recognize a similarity between events this coming week and those that occurred around June 26, at the time of the first Pluto-Uranus square. But, even if we find similar themes present in both time frames, we can also “expect the unexpected” this week, since Uranus excels in creating surprises.
What we know for sure is that both of these planets are intent on bringing about necessary changes. We also know that neither planet is noted for subtlety. With both of them strongly activated now, a new world is in the midst of being created – at times requiring that the old world be demolished first.
URANUS IN ARIES has the effect of an extra adrenalin pump. In square aspect to Pluto, Uranus can exaggerate our reactivity, so that we are more likely to act first and think about it later (maybe). The “fight or flight” mechanism can be strongly engaged at this time.… Read the rest
With Cancer – a water sign in the Cardinal modality – our world can be awash in emotion.

FIVE MAN ELECTRICAL BAND “Signs” And the sign said “Long-haired freaky people need not apply” So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why He said “You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you’ll do” So I took off my [...]… Read the rest
