Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 12th

Strange forces are on the prowl on a very significant day in the heavens. The strange factor is due to four parallel and contra-parallel formations as Mercury is contra-parallel to Jupiter (3:19AM), Mercury is also parallel to Venus (5:32AM), Venus is contra-parallel to Jupiter (8:26AM), and then Ceres is parallel to Uranus (12:47PM). Four of these types of alignments — in one 24-hour time-span — are very rare, and they combine to create a fair amount of uncertainty in the psychic atmosphere.  Meanwhile, during a 5-hour void lunar cycle in Aries (from 7:38AM to 12:41PM), the Sun makes an inspirational, 72-degree rapport with far-out Neptune (8:34AM) — opening the gates of creative imagination and artistic improvisation. Once the Moon enters the sign of its exaltation — Taurus — at 12:41PM, focus your attention on business matters, physical fitness, and tuning into Mother Nature’s rhythms.  The big event clocks in at 4:02PM when Jupiter in Cancer trines Saturn in Scorpio. They formed this same 120-degree contact on July 17 and will do so again on May 24, 2014. When the two largest planets in our solar system make this tie, you have a rare chance to take several giant leaps ahead on the professional horizon. Think outside the box and know that you can be a mover-and-shaker within your fields of expertise. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time.
