December is here! Amazing! We have had the mildest Autumn in memory. It has been wonderful, but all that is about to change. Last night at this time it was 60 degrees, tonight it is 40 and headed lower! Within the week we will likely see snow.  Being that I chose to live in Vermont, I will do my best to welcome it along with the skiers, who will be delighted!
Enough about the physical weather!  Today we welcome a bit of astrological cold as well. Perhaps we will perceive it as heat! Or that icy cold that deeply burns!
Sounds like PLUTO to me!  Indeed, today is VENUS’ annual conjunction with PLUTO, now in CAPRICORN.
Let’s ask ourselves: what about money?  What transformational energies are we experiencing regarding our relationship to money and resources?   Are we cleaning out our closets of ‘stuff’?  Are we finally beginning to look at our bank account more realistically?   There is a tight connection between our closest relationships and money that is not often explored.  How we chose our relationships and who we choose to be in relationship with are huge determining factors in the health, or lack of it, of our financial situation, and the other way around as well. Our health or lack of it in finances, determine who and how we are in relationship.
Now is an important time to take a brutally clear and honest look at how our finances and our relationships are linked.  Do our partners understand our relationship to money? Do we understand theirs?  Do we use our partner(s) as an excuse for our own inability to develop a healthy relationship to our resources?  How do we combine our resources within our most intimate relationship(s)? or do we keep them totally separate? Where is the connection between money and intimacy?
It is time to open our eyes to how we deal with money in our personal lives, in our relationships, in our businesses and in our larger understanding of our culture and the world.  It is easy to be unconscious regarding our relationship to money.  It is easier for most people to talk about sex than to talk about money. There is so much guilt, shame, envy, jealousy and resentment involved!  No wonder it is a taboo subject!

SATURN first moved into LIBRA about two years ago and we have been working on issues of Relationship fairly diligently since that time. Now we are asked to look at this aspect of relationship.  What would a full overhaul/transformation of finances look like in your life?  What would change in your day to day routines? What would change in your relationship?  In our culture?  In the world?
Take advantage of this connection between VENUS AND PLUTO to really take a look at this powerful issue.
Today, with the MOON IN PISCES we have the opportunity to see this issue on a deeply spiritual level as well, it is not just my money or just my relationship. This is a global issue with deep consequences.  Begin with ourselves but keep our eyes on the larger picture of humanity.  How can we work with the intangibility of money? How can we understand what is so surreal and elusive to our comprehension?  Begin with ourselves. Open our eyes, our minds and our hearts.

First find compassion for where we are and then discover the ways to get out of debt,

transform our relationship to each other and to our resources!

A deep exploration of this issue will change your life!
