As each planet moves through the sky we notice that periodically each one, with the exception of the Sun and Moon, seem to slow down. They eventually stop altogether, then slowly start to move in the direction that they had been coming from. This is called retrograde motion.

This is the month of the Winter Solstice. To ancient people living in the northern hemisphere this was considered the most spiritually important day of the year. It was when the Sun reached the southernmost point of its annual journey. The shortest day, the longest night had been reached and, with the Sun turning and heading back north, it offered the promise of the return of the light. Life would continue for another year. It’s as if our contract with the Divine is being renewed and we can plan for the ways in which we can express our creative energy for another cycle of life.

The Sun in the US chart is 13 degrees of Cancer.

Neptune is an archetype that is as interesting as it is confusing. One of the slowest of the planets, taking 10 years to transit through each sign, it can bring illusion and fantasy or take us to the heights of awareness. It can help tune us into the depths of our psyche and allow us great intuitive insight into others. This month Neptune will aspect 3 other planets, and will formulate 2 different aspects with one of them.

The word aspect, when applied to astrology, refers to a significant angular relationship between two or more planets. Depending on the angle that separates the planets their connection could be blending, harmonious and mutually supportive. Or, it could present challenges that must be addressed. The prime harmonious aspects are 60 degree (sextiles) and 120 degree (trine) connections. They enable situations to remain flowing in a stable way. The main challenging aspects are the 90 degree (square) and 189 degree (opposition) connections. These challenges occur either in our relationship to ourselves (squares) or to others (opposition). There is also a fifth major aspect called a conjunction. This is when two or more planets are very close together. The opportunity, and challenge, of a conjunction is to blend or integrate each of the separate planetary energies into a more focused, flowing unit. If we are successful in that process, conjunctions can help us get a lot done in a short time because we have a lot of energy in the same place at the same time, all doing the same thing. If we don’t affectively blend the energies, each of the planets will tend to do its own thing in its own way and time.  This leads either to confusion or dissipation of the energies involved.

It changes sign once each year, and this is the month that shift will take place. The sign that a planet resides in indicates how the energy of the planet will be utilized and expressed.
