The first lesson of the new year comes just before the old year ends--which is right now.
Baby steps. Learn to love 'em.
The short version is that things WILL be screwy at first. Things WILL GO WRONG--and that's okay as long as you don't panic, and don't try to take on too much at once. Small steps can be retraced, can be corrected almost without thought. But trouble is lurking for the fool who leaps too far out, too early. The new year will being new skills, and they will take time to learn. Imagine yourself flying a plane for the first time. You manage to get up in the air and suddenly there is a storm. Now the plane starts zig-zagging and getting squirrely. You are ass over teakettle and the ground is not so inviting a place at the moment.
Baby steps. You will make mistakes. And it will be okay.
This new year is about the larger vision, the long-term goals, and undoing a lot that has been done. Look at the world of politics. Here in America we have the stage set for the gunfight at the OK Corral. Healthcare repeal. Gays in the military repeal, Tax-cuts--repeal. Who wins is who makes the smallest, most consistent victories. There is no "big score" right now. Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius as we enter the new year. It is getting the hell away from the stellium that it would complete with the Sun, Pluto, and Mars. All three of those will be in Capricorn by the end of the day, and Mercury, being the fickle (and smart) bastard that he is, wants NONE of it!
But... Merc is EXACTLY sextile Jupiter in Pisces, which just so happens to be conjunct Uranus--less than a degree separating them--and closing fast. Merc is sinister (separating--breaking free, leaving, moving away from) while everything else is dexter (closing in on). At this moment Merc is the ONLY retro thing in the sky. It's "all engines full Mister Scott!" and Merc sees the hysteria of he crowd--the unthinking zeal and flees.
Auntie Moon is in Cancer--ALL POWERFUL, trining (perfect resonance with) Jupiter/Uranus--who are boinking over in Pisces. Something big will happen this day. Decisions made, plans cemented, things birthed--but they must take baby steps or the year will be FULL of crazy chaotic plans that go awry/haywire/w-r-o-n-g.
Get it? Srak?
So... Let's all be careful out there. Today the work begins. You have a few last minutes to plan, if you haven't done so yet.
Ready.... set.. Ka!
