Cosmic Weather Report
Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are
By Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax

December starts with a burst of energy from Mars-trine-Jupiter on the 1st, as well as a sextile from Mars to Saturn on the 3rd, and a sextile from Mars to Uranus on the 6th. These three positive Mars hook-ups supply a much-needed energy that’s recently been lacking in many people’s lives.
The power of Mars energizes us to open the stuck gates of change. This month the red planet amps up the adventurer within us to push back against the closing walls of narrow, obsolete thought that clamp down on creative freedom and independence. With that Mars supercharge we can break out of old energies and stories that confine us into the wide-open territory of change and transformation.
Near the end of the month Jupiter opposes Uranus on the 26th and Uranus goes direct on the 29th, two Uranian activations that further the cause of liberation and breakthrough because Uranus is the planet of revolution (that was discovered at the time of the French and American Revolutions.) The energies that Mars raises on a personal level at the beginning of the month, Uranus raises on a collective level at the end of the month — lifting the consciousness of a species that’s gotten depressed and stalled in its progressive evolution.
Three of these five astrological movements occur in Degree Frequency 21, which raises the issue of who you’ve been trained to be versus who you really are. This is the breakthrough issue of our time, because when human beings awaken to realize how much power they have to change themselves in a way that changes the world, we tip the balance away from fear and bigotry toward the unity that results from realizing that our similarities are much stronger than our differences.
Lacking that breakthrough awakening, we sleepwalk through life activating a mere fraction of the creative dynamo we contain inside. This Trance of Normalcy set in as a reaction to the 1960s Revolution in Consciousness that flooded the gates of change so powerfully it scared the daylights out of conservative forces that yanked back hard in the other direction. A numbness set in that we can eradicate by fanning the flames of change through music, politics, art and inspiration.
Once again, as occurred in the 1960s, forces of intolerance and suppression are being trumped up on the world stage. With the fiery drive supplied by Mars at the beginning of December, and the amplified consciousness supplied by Uranus around the potent time of Winter Solstice, we’re being summoned to energize the creative core inside that recharges us to bust out of the machine and claim our fuller destiny in an act of liberation that becomes instantly contagious, calling like-minded soul to come out, come out, wherever you are.
