December 2017: Looking backwards to move forward

Ambi Sitham



Hello lovely ones and welcome to December 2017!

The last month of 2017 is set to be an intense one with Mercury already in retrograde shadow and the official retrograde starting hours before the last Full Moon of 2017 which will be a Super Full Moon at that!

Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and Saturn is in his final stages of transiting Sagittarius as he will depart the Sagittarius zone of the zodiac on December 20th and move into Capricorn.

This Mercury retrograde will dominate the last month of the year as will the Sagittarius ruled part of each of our charts with the Sun shining brightly in Sagittarius for the first three weeks of the month.

The Saturn in Sagittarius transit started in December 2014 and apart from a few months in the summer of 2015 when Saturn retrograded back into Scorpio, Saturn has been putting each of us through the mill when it comes to the Sagittarius ruled parts of lives in our unique charts.

Use the chart calculator on this website to see which areas of life Sagittarius governs in your life to understand where this transit has played out for you in terms of life areas.

As a Sagittarius sun sign, with a total of four planets in Sagittarius, I can tell you that this transit has been extremely challenging, and not escaping the deep sorrow that Saturn often brings  (with my Dad passing away) but has also seen me mature and grow and create new strong foundations in my life.

I am grateful for the lessons and the blessings but also ready to wave Saturn goodbye for another 28 years!

Turning now to the title of this blog and the Soulstrology theme for December 2017.

It is no cosmic coincidence that Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius during the final weeks of Saturn's transit of Sagittarius.

Mercury retrogrades as I think you all know by now, are a great opportunity to do all things RE. RE view, REconcile, RE think, RE consider, RE start, REunite and so on.

This particular Mercury retrograde is asking us to look back over the last year but also over the last few years of Saturn's transit and the personal challenges, delays, or fear we may have experienced (all of these are Saturn's shadow).

We are being asked by the cosmos to look backwards but only insofar as to learn and integrate the lessons so that we can truly move forwards.

As the quote in the image accompanying this blog wisely says, we learn from our mistakes or we go backwards in life.

Soulstrology says that if we keep repeating the same mistakes we cannot point the finger of blame at the cosmos, the moon and stars, we need to take responsibility and turn the finger around and point it at ourselves.

We are continually co-creating our existences with the cosmos so we need to do our bit to tap into the energies and blessings which are available.

Soulstrology reminds us that mistakes are powerful, valuable lessons and that we will always be making mistakes in life and this is part of the human existence.

However, we know we are growing when we stop making the same mistakes and start making new ones!

That's when we know we have shed old karma and have new opportunities for growth and new blessings to tap into.

Some people get sensitive or defensive around the idea of making a mistake and taking responsibility for it but this over sensitivity and defensiveness is usually just an ego reaction.

It's easier to adopt victim consciousness but it is more rewarding to adopt victor consciousness and alchemize our mistakes into mastery and miracles.

Whilst Saturn's tough love is often focused upon it is easy to forget that this is the planet that rewards hard work over time.

Saturn transits may test you, but they will also reward you!

When the cosmic taskmaster departs a zone of your chart it's as though he gives you a star based on your efforts.

In each of our lives this star equates to reaping what we have sown.

But the transit is not over yet and Mercury's retrograde can bring back past issues for final healing and closure so we can move forwards and receive our cosmic dues from Saturn.

Gold stars all around please!

Over the next month when many of us are in holiday mode and focusing on festivities and gifts, give yourself the gift of time and effort into reviewing your life over the last year and the Sagittarius ruled part of your life over the last three years.

It truly is the greatest gift you can give yourself so that you can move forwards to have the 2018 you desire...

Mantra of the month:

I practice patience with myself and others knowing any seeming delays or mistakes are in cosmic order and will unravel themselves for the highest good in divine timing

I look backwards with courage and faith knowing that by healing the past I can transform my future

I embrace my mistakes as MUST TAKES and willingly integrate the lessons trusting that doing so will create the space for me to receive

As always I will write detailed blogs for both the New and Full Moons.

Members can expect weekly cosmic updates and more detailed information for their zodiac sign for both the Full and New Moons.

In the meantime here are the key dates for your cosmic diary for December 2017.

December 1: Mars (in Libra) opposes Uranus (in Aries) - tense aspect, can lead to conflict and power struggles, positive outcome is sudden change manifesting

December 2: Jupiter (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) harmonious, romantic, creative, spiritual aspect

December 2: Venus moves into Sagittarius (will write Member's blog on this)

December 3: Mercury turns retrograde at 28 degrees Sagittarius

December 3: Full Moon Gemini (will write detailed blog on this and Members will get a guide for their zodiac sign)

December 6: Mercury (in Sagittarius) conjuncts Saturn (in Sagittarius) a heavy aspect for the mind. The past may come knocking. Information may come to light regarding challenges or tests from the past

December 10: Mercury (in Sagittarius) trines Uranus (in Aries) Unexpected communication or information. Positive aspect.

December 11: Mars moves into Scorpio (will write detailed blog for Members on this)

December 12: Sun (in Sagittarius) conjunct Mercury (in Sagittarius) a powerful aspect which may tell you what this Mercury retrograde represents for you

December 22: Sun (in Capricorn) conjuncts Saturn (in Capricorn) powerful aspect, can be very productive, can also feel heavy

December 23: Mercury stations direct at 13 degrees of Sagittarius (it's not over though! Now it's the post retrograde shadow!)

December 25: Venus moves into Capricorn (will write detailed blog on this for Members)

December 25: Venus (in Capricorn) conjuncts Saturn (in Capricorn) I predict LOTS of Christmas Day proposals in 2017 (more than usual!) as Venus governs love, Saturn governs commitment and status!

December 28: Mars (in Scorpio) trines Neptune (in Pisces) positive powerful aspect for creativity, romance/sex and spirituality

I am wishing you all a wonderful last month of 2017.

May we all have the courage to look backwards and heal and clear so we can finally move forward.

September 2017: Holy shifts

Ambi Sitham

Yep. I never thought I would be a gong playing, cosmic guide in Los Angeles!

Yep. I never thought I would be a gong playing, cosmic guide in Los Angeles!

Hello lovely ones and welcome to September 2017!

Hopefully you have all survived eclipse season.....however I must warn that September is set to be a pretty eventful month too... hence the title of September's cosmic update...

Think holy shifts; in some cases these will be the 'holy sh*t' kind of holy shifts...

Soulstrology says that September 2017 will bring closure to a chapter of each of our lives whilst simultaneously opening a new chapter.

Just as Summer is slowly coming to an end and we will soon embrace Autumn, so too we must allow one chapter in the book of our lives to close in order for us to write a new chapter.

The month starts off with a bang with a powerful Full Moon in Pisces on September 5th, the same day as Mercury stations direct from his recent retrograde.

The recent Leo solar eclipse of August 21 will be activated on this Mercury will be at the exact same degree/sign as the eclipse!

Notice what comes up for you leading up to, on the day of the 5th and a couple of days afterwards as this will be directed related to the Leo solar eclipse and the change it was activating in your life.

As we are in earthy Virgo season it will help ground us during any shifts and assist us in integrating life changes in the aftermath of the eclipse activation.

On September 19 we will have a beautiful New Moon in Virgo (the same day that Mercury's retrograde is truly over as the infamous shadow ends), and days later on September 22 we embrace the Autumn Equinox, the official start of the new season of Fall.

By the time September is over life will be different for each of us.

For some of us there will be dramatic life changes; others will experience a more subtle shift, perhaps more of a tweak in the sails so that we set sail in a new direction, to a broader horizon.

Whatever comes up for you this month, trust that it is 'holy'.

Whether you believe in G-d, Spirit, the Universe, angels - whatever you believe in -  trust that those divine forces are guiding these shifts and are working with your higher self to bring you to the next chapter of your life.

Mantra of the month: I embrace change with a trusting heart, knowing that these holy shifts are divinely guided and will ultimately serve my highest good.

Ooh!!  As I typed the above words it started to rain and there are thunder rumblings here in Los Angeles!! (5.45pm, Thursday 31 August and in case you are wondering, no, I am not wearing my pajamas quite yet!)

I have the shivers as rain and thunder are the symbols of Jupiter.

The great cosmic benefic, healer and miracle worker!

Bringer of gifts, abundance and plain good luck!

Lovely ones, I beseech you to not only believe in holy shifts but also to allow yours to happen, so you can become who you are truly meant to be and be another channel for bringing light to our beloved world.

As always, I will write detailed blogs for the New and Full Moons.

Members can expect the usual weekly lowdown on all cosmic activity.

In the meantime, below are the key dates for your cosmic diary for September 2017. 

September 1 - Mars (in Leo) trine Uranus (in Aries) positive aspect
