December is always a time of childlike wonder and fantasy but this particular month, it is time to step out of a particular illusion and see the truth of something that is no longer serving you. That revelation will create a bit of dissonance, but that is necessary to open to the new reality that’s unfolding.

Part of the reason for all the drama is astrological. December is a big month, as we have the second-to-the-last square between Pluto and Uranus on December 15 at 12 degrees of Aries/Capricorn. We also have Saturn finally leaving Scorpio on December 23, emparting a lighter emotional tone as Saturn in Sagittarius is much more energetic.

When outer planets change signs, it’s a big deal. Saturn sets limitations. Saturn helps us build discipline. Saturn puts on the breaks to make sure that we are not getting too far ahead of ourselves. Now it is going into the more adaptable sign of Sagittarius, which makes it manipulative but also more receptive. This allows all of us to manage things better. It will give us the ability to project the energy of Saturn outward and proceed with what you’ve been trying to accomplish.

Coming into the holiday season, expect some great fiery energy pushing you out of your stuck places and propelling you into new situations that will allow the old you to die during the Winter Solstice and be reborn into the “you” that has been hidden and waiting.

Remember that we are all dancing with these patterns and energies. Do not get angry or go into blame as you break out of an old place. No one is to blame. Not even yourself. You are not ready until you are ready. Let go of the mind as it tries to figure it all out. Life always unfolds in its proper order.

The Raven is bringing back the magic and giving you access to your gifts from the spiritual domains. The Bear is allowing you to feel powerfully reflective and move with the subtle messages from your subconscious mind.

December is when the direction becomes clear and you pull that arrow fully into the bow and let go. In that moment of release, a new possibility emerges and you will suddenly find that you have the energy to move toward this new goal.

The Man of Pipes is awakening that receptive silence within and helps us reconnect to the magical wisdom that we each possess. It is in the silence that we find the peace. It is in the protection of nature that we reclaim our innocence. Tranquility returns as you allow for a moment of reflection and appreciation. Let your family nourish your soul. Surround yourself with those who know and love you on the deepest and most intimate level. It is wonderful to feel appreciated. Let it in. See with wonder the unfolding of your heart and spirit. Enjoy the nonth of December.

Suzanne Wagner, psychic, author, speaker and teacher, will be in SLC for classes and readings Dec. 9-16.
