The message this December is do your stuff before the 21st or so and then don your flak jacket and your helmet and take cover until January. Of course it's not going to be that dramatic for everyone, but it would be foolish to assume you're immune. Someone's going to come out on top, right? Or at least reasonably unscathed.
The reason for the health warning this holiday season is Mars's presence in Libra. Mars moves into Libra at the start of the month, and by Christmas day the god of war is opposing Uranus and squaring Pluto. That means the infamous Uranus-Pluto square that dominates the sky now, is being activated by the most incendiary planet in the solar system.
Those directly in the firing line are anyone with personal planets -- Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, Mars – between 5° and 12° of the cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Capricorn does hold most of the cards, so although the goatfish is likely to be the most changed by the experience, he or she is also potentially the most empowered.
Now, Mars is not only activating the Uranus-Pluto square this holiday. In fact, the warrior planet is going to be in Libra until July, activating the square again in April and in June. April in particular looks combustible.
There is some good news amongst all this. Mars is considered to be in detriment in Libra, the sign of peace. He is uncomfortable there, so he does not behave with his usual gung-ho power. He's unpredictable. Now maybe Mars in Libra will actually force people to the negotiating table. You never know.
