Jan 23, 2012  See also Mars Retrograde in Virgo, since it is Stationary today, at a still point, focusing and holding power, turning regrograde!

How symbolic that we can ‘dance’ our own 龙 Dragon of Good Fortune! We can make it as we wish, fiery, furry, green, yellow, red! Small, large! It can be Merlin’s fearsome consultant. It can be the undulating Dragon of the Chinese Dragon Dance, recommended length 112 feet!

Dragons are highly esteemed in Chinese culture, symbolic of the Supernatural, and Chinese consider themselves to be Descendants of the Dragon! It bequeaths power, courage, righteousness and dignity, is known for goodness, fertility, vigilance and poise. It scares away evil spirits and is at the end of every Chinese New Year parade.

Red is a good color choice for your Dragon because it is associated with our Western zodiacal sign Aries, whose colors are red and white – their cars often those colors! Dragons are considered to be fierce and fiery, and our Aries is a quite spirited Fire sign, a rights fighter, first responder, champion! Aries figured prominently in last year’s unprecedented 56 day grouping of 4 to 6 planets in Aries. 2012 Aries’ Chinese animal is front and center! Big ideas and success are natural. A lot of energy expended can make you tired. Innovative, but frustrated, a quick temper. This year being the Water Dragon, may give more understanding, perception. Your generosity makes friends, but independent and self sufficient, you may be a loner at heart, not ask for help. As always with Aries, the Dragon is better at starting projects, less so at finishing. Delegate, be a consultant and move on to what’s next! Everyone has Aries in an area of their chart – Mars, the Aries planet – and a First House, the Aries natural house! Aries energy will be proudly and magnificently carried on from 2011, and if you are courageous enough, you can ride or fly your inner dragon! If it isn’t quite up to par, revision it – buy a red dress!

Check your calendar for exact dates, they change each year – these are previous Dragon years: 1904 * 1916 * 1928 * 1940 * 1952 Water * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * 2000

Though Jan 1 is our calendrical New Year, Jan 4  Earth’s perihelion, when it is closest to the Sun during the year, is thought by some to be the true New Year!  For others yet, it is Winter Solstice, Dec 21, marking the return of the Sun King!  Whichever you celebrate, or if you celebrate them all, an equal opportunity celebator, may your New Year be loving, wise, healthy, abundant,  joyous!  If you are a Dragon, it’s your year!  For us astrologically minded, we are thinking it is a very eventful year to come – the Venus Transit Sun, Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn exact for the first times, our Presidential Elections, 12:12:12, the 26,000 year turnover of the Mayan Calendar!   Blessed be!  See the Important 2012 Astro*Logical Highlights!  I’m so glad we are all connected.  This is a journey to be shared!

Jan 8 Full Moon at 18 Cancer/Capricorn, 11:30 PM Pacific, our first of 2012!  It starts the 2012 Lunar year at 18 degrees, the closest and only planet in the mix is Mars at 21 Virgo!  The Moon is sextile Mars, the Sun is trine!  Looks like motivation, leadership, exercise make the difference.  In practical Virgo, it could be organizing your work, taking health matters into your own hands, getting a new pet?!  Enlisting the help of your family may cost less, or simply hiring a helper may keep peace.  There may be tender feelings with Mama Moon in her own water sign Cancer, so gentle down your approaches, soften your voice.  Capricorn can seem too businesslike at times, but gets the job done; Mars is so gung-ho there is no particular thought, just spontaneous action.  If Cancer has been dawdling, eating too much, Mars and Cap may be just the ticket to get out and get something going!  Often even a small start is all it takes to tip the balance!

Getting ready for the 2012 Mars Retrograde Jan 23 to April 13 Pacific times!  Mars retrogrades in earth sign Virgo from 23 degrees back to 3.  Get your machinery in order, including your vehicle, bicycle if you commute with it.  Clean things up that could cause a slow down or lost time looking for lost items.  When you put that item where you will be sure to find it, perhaps put notes in a couple of places to help you locate it in case your thinking changes by when you need it.  Get orders filled, have enough stock on hand as you can anticipate to keep things going smoothly so you don’t have to wait for delayed materials.  We are talking 11 weeks’ worth.  See your health advisors.  Take care of any pet matters.  Take care of complications with new projects, employer/employee matters, tenancy issues, bookkeeping.  Some of this will depend on which house(s) and which of your planets are activated in your personal chart, so let’s take a look at that for you.

Dragon with Merlin (BBC)

It starts with Moon conjunct Jupiter at 12.16 PM, on through the afternoon and evening, ending with Mars conjunct Pluto 8.13 PM!  Conjunctions, when planets are very near each other, or exactly at the same place, are potent mergers!  Two for the price of one, two ways to see or act on a topic, combining talents! 

The Moon in Pisces is first with optimistic Jupiter, truth teller, then conjuncts Uranus, which throws it all to the winds in the interest of discovery, new friendships, flying, perhaps amazing computer connections!  Mother Moon lends her sweet nurturing, brings in our feminine gentleness, tender feelings, responses to what is needed. 

In Pisces, is a profound sensitivity, psychic awareness, sees the whole, not just oneself or one’s family or culture, but all.  An incredible fusion can occur; words of long awaited truth can bubble up. With a letting go of fear that once held all prisoner, now freed, the invisible bonds are unraveled, smooth as a snake skin!  Though that magician sees hidden flaws, what we are ‘blind’ or ‘deaf’ about, it also sees all that is glorious, the true art and beauty of what our Souls can do!  It can walk with God.     

This opening is followed by Mercury, of mind, logic, words, first conjunct Pluto, then Mars, both fighters, defenders!  Though Pluto doesn’t give up confidentiality, secrets, easily, this time, with Mercury’s logic, keeping things more neutral, the mighty pen may tell secrets, make the revelation, that can bring action to save the day!

Pluto faces death itself, our psychological Dragon within; Mars, sword in hand, Goliath-like courageously fights the Dragon you can see, the one that metaphorically breathes fire on your village.  In finale, Mars conjuncts Pluto, external action merges with internal desire, hopefully, for perfect satisfaction!  It’s been building up all week intensely, and will build all that day!

This formidable Mercury, Pluto, Mars combination will be in the Builder sign Capricorn.  Architects of homes and Spirit, building our psyche from within, making beauty on our land, in our homes, Capricorns look for solidarity.  They are the archaeologists of our future!  Great walls of needed protection, rocks as place holders and anchors, even the gravestones of our ancestors, are parts of their contributions to the power of our memory banks that save us from previous mistakes, serve as foundation for future growth. 

Have a good talk with your dragon that lives in you!  Get more acquainted with your power.  Know that fire is Light, fire can burn away the dross, clear your Path, light the way.  What will you do the 13th that will make a difference, be a Gift you are happy to give?!

Dec 13 is also the last day of, the culmination of, the Sagittarius Bowl, and is happening while Mercury is Retrograde in Capricorn!  Keep the Mercury Retrograde factor firmly in mind.   Our next Bowl, in Capricorn, the Third Bowl of 4, will be Dec 28 to Jan 10, 2011.  Stay tuned….
