RUNE OF THE MONTH: Thurisaz, “the gateway”. Life is made of choices. Our destiny unfolds one choice at a time. We are required to discern what will lead us to our highest good from what may hinder our growth. This month, we are faced with important decisions. If we feel confused, it may be useful for each, to create a list of the pros and the cons and assign a number to each bullet point (1: not important, 10: most important) and see for each option whether we are in the plus or the minus, and by how much. This simple exercise will help us reach internal clarity. An important month that brings this year to a conclusion and prepares the next. Let us choose what benefits our highest growth!
Uranus remains retrograde this whole month. Its shadow period lasts until April 23rd 2019. The degrees covered this month (29º09’ - 28º37’ Aries) are symbolized by: “The music of the spheres” and “A duck pond and its brood”. On the road to individuation, if it is important to keep our eyes on the higher realms, to connect to the mysteries of the universe and find our place in the greater scheme of things, it is also essential to remember our family, biological and spiritual. The friends we choose, the like-spirited people, our soul sisters and brothers are the ones who support our evolution, assist us in times of need, and present us the mirror in which we can look at ourselves with honesty. No matter how lonely we may feel, we are never isolated from the rest of humanity. Each life is connected to all and has repercussions. Let us always remember our individual responsibility on the evolution of consciousness of the collective.
Mercury turns direct on December 7 at 27º17’ Scorpio. Its shadow period remains until December 25, 2018. This degree is represented by: “The King of the Fairies approaching his domain”. The first week of December is still marked by a need to investigate esoteric mysteries, the mystical and the secrets of our own spiritual lineage and identity. We could be enticed to revisit such topics as life after death, reincarnation and the profound wisdom of ancient advanced civilizations.

This month’s intentional meditation started on Thursday 11/22 when we took out as many blank sheets of paper as you will have intentions and placed them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they would bask in the light of the Full Moon in Gemini. Once that moment had passed, we gathered our Full Moon charged blank sheets and placed them in a folder.
On Thursday 12/6 on the New Moon in Sagittarius, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 11:20 PM. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams…

Once that moment has passed, gather your Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.
Saturday 12/1: Mercury re-enters Scorpio (3:12 AM till December 12)
During the next 11 days, our mind is inquisitive. We seek deep answers to profound questions. We are drawn to the metaphysical, are fascinated by secrets and may wish to investigate the mysteries of life after death and sexuality. Because superficial conversations are not interesting to us, solitude could feel more attractive. Our abilities to concentrate, as well as X-ray situations and people are particularly enhanced.
Sunday 12/2: Venus enters Scorpio (9:02 AM till January 7), Sun Square Mars (4:35 PM)
During the next month, our emotions run deep. We seek loyalty, trustworthiness and integrity in our relationships. Our feelings being very black and white, we tend to avoid lukewarm or wishy-washy people. We need to experience and express passion. Our aesthetic tastes are also more intense than usual. Today, more specifically, could bring some conflicts. Tempers flare up quickly. Direct words are spoken without much prior thought, creating irreparable separations. Potentially aggressive people or situation should be avoided, as they could easily degenerate into violence. Extra caution is advised while driving a motor vehicle or using any sharp object.
Wednesday 12/5: Sun Square Neptune (2:22 PM)
We could feel quite dreamy today, inefficient and vaguely anxious. We could also be quite influenceable. Best to stay away from negative people as their words could make us more depressed than necessary. A day best used focusing on the positive, listening to uplifting music, watching a feel-good movie or reading an inspiring book.
Thursday 12/6: Mercury turns direct (1:22 PM)
Kindly refer to the opening paragraph. Today communications could still be a little chaotic. Everything returns to normal tomorrow.
Friday 12/7: Mars Conjunct Neptune (6:12 AM)
Physically, we could feel rather weak today, dreamy and unprone to making any effort in the “real” world. A day best spent resting, relaxing, taking it easy and going with the flow. Good for creative craft work, meditation and aquatic exercise.
Wednesday 12/12: Mercury enters Sagittarius (3:43 PM till January 5)
The next 3 weeks are perfect for long distance traveling, learning a new language, taking an interest in a different culture, furthering our education especially in the areas of the law, religion and/or philosophy. We feel more positive than usual, exert more self-confidence, and in general have more faith and trust in life, in ourselves as well as in others.
Sunday 12/16: Venus Sextile Saturn (6:27 AM), Mars Sextile Pluto (10:53 PM)
A good day to be very clear on a romantic involvement. We are able to look at a relationship with realism, a certain degree of detachment and a deeper understanding of its implications in our life. The perfect time to either end it or lift it to the next level of commitment. Focused artistic work leads to solid results. A good day for intense physical efforts as well as for starting a project requiring passion, power, stamina and courage.
Thursday 12/20: Sun Trine Uranus (8:21 AM)
A day of sudden and unexpected changes. It is important today to go with the flow, be present from moment to moment, and face challenges with creative inventiveness. Reconnecting with someone from our past could help us appreciate all the changes we have gone through. A stimulating day that could bring us much freedom from the known while encouraging us to manifest our uniqueness.
Friday 12/21: Venus Trine Neptune (9:12 AM), Mercury Conjunct Jupiter (9:37 AM), Sun enters Capricorn (2:23 PM till January 20)
During this coming month we could be much more organized, efficient and hard-working than usual. An excellent time to make short and long-term plans, reassess our goals, as well as be clear on our values and priorities.
Today, more specifically, a relationship could feel enchanted. But if it seems too good to be true, beware, as it may just be so and once the pink bubble has burst, end in a big disappointment. On the positive side, if we are careful not to let our imagination take over, there could be a soul link and a telepathic connection with another. Our esthetic sense is particularly refined. We want to focus on beauty around us and in each person we meet. This transit is particularly inspiring for artists who are able through their art to pierce the veils between dimensions.
Today, we also feel very generous, enthusiastic and confident. Let us however be careful to not promise more than we can deliver, as our words could exceed our capacity to fulfill them. Let us beware not to fall prey to those who would take advantage of our wishful mental state. Excellent for a long-distance trip which will expose us to distant cultures and expand our understanding of this world. Very good also for learning a new language, furthering our education or taking an interest in philosophy, religion or the law. Our mind is expansive, positive and adventurous.
Monday 12/24: Mercury Square Neptune (4:33 PM)
Confusion could mark this day. Our mind is not good with details and may even be quite impractical. We could feel dreamy and unfocused, more attracted to a world of our imagination than dealing with reality. Not a good day for signing legally binding documents or anything requiring concentration and discipline. We could be more tired and sensitive to noise, negativity, ugliness and darkness, than usual.
Friday 12/28: Venus Sextile Pluto (1:27 PM)
A new or existing love relationship could make us experience more passion than we have ever known. Compromise, graciousness and compliance for the sake of peace and harmony, ease our social life. Artists could work with more intensity and creativity than usual.
Monday 12/31: Mars enters Aries (6:20 PM till February 14)
Aries natives are favored during the next 6 weeks. All others should also enjoy higher energy, feel more confident and optimistic. A great period to launch a project requiring enthusiasm, courage, positive energy, determination and physical stamina.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays!
In Loving Light.

RUNE OF THE MONTH: The blank rune! We are entering the unknown, the unforeseeable… But also, at work in our lives, is the sum result (karma) of all our thoughts and actions. Everything is possible this month. We are reminded that we are the ultimate creators of our reality and that whatever we are reaping based on our past choices, that we do not enjoy, can be changed with a transformation of attitude.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Jera “perseverance”. Nothing happens in one day. It is the repeated action leading towards one goal that helps us reach our destination. With consistent hard work, we harvest what we sowed. And if we don’t fulfil our dreams, we need to question our efforts or lack thereof
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ansuz “Signals, the messenger”. A reminder to be impeccable in our thoughts and words as they create our reality and impact others as well as the world around us. We are also required to pay attention to both the obvious and the subtle messages we receive on a constant basis that validate or invalidate the choices we are making.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Mannaz “community, protection”. A month to reassess the way we feel nurtured and the way we offer nurturing to others. As we think not just of satisfying our own needs but in terms of what will also benefit the whole, we bring protection to
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Berkana “rebirth, growth”. In the same way that a tree needs to shed its lower branches for its trunk to develop, do we need to let go of old circumstances so that new ones may come into our lives.
RUNE OF THE MONTH:Tyr “God/Goddess”. This month we are asked to come in balance with all things, inside and out. It is when we know where we come from, that we know where we are and can receive clarity as to where we are going.
The necessity this month to slow down, reflect and proceed more cautiously as danger could be lurking at any turn. A time to be clear in our choices and not act in a foolish manner, nor fall prey to the ups and downs of outer reality.
Berkana “right action”. This month requires of us ultimate integrity, that we do what we know to be right whether or not someone is watching. Right action is action in alignment with our highest truth that respects and honors others around us.
Wyrd “the homeland”. We are requested this month to examine our karmic lineage, as well as understand how we are continuing and/or breaking our family tree. The questions we need to ask ourselves revolve around what we have done with our gifts so far, how we have lived our life, what we have created that may continue beyond us and what our real roots are, both in this lifetime and throughout our various incarnations.
era “harvest”. A month to reap what we sowed. A time of celebration for the good thoughts, feelings, projects we have manifested, and for reevaluating our lives and changing our course of action, if the results obtained are not to our liking.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Raido. “Journey, communication, union, reunion”. A perfect relationship is built on love, respect, understanding and tolerance. Communication is essential to growth. An enemy is a friend we have not listened to or taken the time to know. Even in the greatest of relationships, occasional separations are necessary to adjust our frequencies, regroup, recover our power and know ourselves independently from the other.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Laguz “water, flow”. A month to be like water, flow with the present moment and with inner ease, following the dictates of our intuition. The more aligned we are with our own rhythm, the more in touch we are with our feelings, the more success will come to all our endeavours.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Mannaz “the Self, community”. Knowing ourselves, our talents, our weaknesses, our potential is essential to establish solid connections. We each exist as a complete whole, but our relations to others are what define us. Community provides exchange, confrontation, growth and evolution. Let us be aware that our individual choices determine the fate of the whole of humanity.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Inguz “fertility, new beginnings”. A wonderful month to resume unresolved situations, clear the old and let go of the past so that we may start anew, grounded, centered, free from what no longer serves us. We are now in a position to create the life we truly desire with consciousness and mastery.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Laguz “the lake”. The lake reflects all its surroundings and yet remains impenetrable. Its secrets are found by diving into its depths. Becoming sacred witnesses to our environment, in serenity, without judgment, helps us be aware of what is really going on around us. By the same token, we become powerful mirrors for others to see themselves. But it is when we go within, that we really transform our lives. Only when we acknowledge and bring to the surface the more challenging aspects of ourselves, do we become truly transparent.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Ehwaz “Horse”. A month of profound changes. By letting go of too intense an attachment to the mundane, we can feel and express our freedom. If we have wanted to create new things in our lives (move, start a different job, take up a hobby…) now is the time to fully commit to bringing these projects into manifestation. A month of personal empowerment by banking on our talents and acting on our visions!
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Kenaz “torch”. We are called this month to draw upon our inner light. Having ideas amounts to very little if we do not act with passion, ignite the fire within to manifest them in outer reality. We are light bearers, the flames of the candles that illuminate miles of darkness. We are asked to remember what we know and reminded that knowledge is power.
RUNE OF THE MONTH: Sowilo, the Sun. A month to make good use of our creativity, stand in our inner light and radiate our warmth. We should follow our bliss, take good care of our bodies and stand tall in our power with joy and magic.
