Following the Moon: Dec. 4, 2021GGAMoon

There’s an ominous inevitability about Pluto transits that makes them particularly scary. That’s why I got a bit of a chill when I saw Pluto on the IC of the Full Moon horoscope for Nov. 19. (Click on Full Moon to see the article and the chart.) Of course, a few days later we began to hear about a new and more deadly variant of the COVID-19 virus and, right on cue, it arrived in the U.S just before this lunation period ended.

Pluto also had something to do with the other headline that gripped the nation, the school shooting in Michigan. Again, we’re talking about ominous inevitability. The pandemic has placed enormous pressure on our schools and that pressure is felt by teachers, parents and students. Combine that with the availability of guns and it was only a matter of time before some deranged youngster started shooting. The killing spree in Michigan was tragic, but the next one could be much worse.

The Full Moon chart emphasized the Second and Eighth Houses which have to do with money and debts. We saw that manifested in the tense negotiations that went on in Congress over the budget. Once again, a government shutdown was avoided, at least for now. We could cite various political reasons for this continuing impasse but, at the end of the day, it’s just Mitch McConnell showing everyone who’s really running the country.

The New Moon and eclipse chart for Dec. 4 also features the Second House. (Click here to see the chart.) Some financial wizards are concerned that the dip in the stock market that occurred after the announcement of the Omicron variant might lead to an all out crash. This chart doesn’t seem to support such a dramatic shift, though the quincunx by Uranus to the Sun and Moon does indicate uncertainty. Financial matters are going to remain a concern. The fact that Uranus in in the Seventh House of “others” indicates that the source of that concern will be something going on outside the U.S.

The fact Mars is also in the Second House and it is square Jupiter in the free-spending Fifth indicates to me that inflation will be the big financial headache during this lunation period. Rising prices are likely to cut into the profits that retailers count on during this period of frantic gift-buying and, of course, make life harder for those people struggling to just get by.

However, there is good new in this chart. Venus is sitting near the IC, just about in the same place that Pluto occupied in the last lunation chart. Venus is conjunct Pluto, which has been nudged away from the angle and is semi-sextile to Jupiter. Putting this altogether, there is good reason to believe that, at least for the next two weeks, we’ll be able to forget about “ominous inevitability” and enjoy the holiday season the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
