Aquarius (7 Dec – 13 Dec )

I have been talking about the business of friendship and group collaboration for some weeks now, because it has all been leading up to this New Moon – which you will see growing thinner and thinner, in the night sky. Once it’s barely visible, you are on the verge of making a new beginning. In some ways, you set this up for yourself a few weeks ago, just by accepting and inviting particular people, or plans, into your world. Depending on your age, you may even have set this up for yourself some thirty years ago! That’s how long this Saturn cycle is. Try to be fully conscious of all the potential pros and cons that come with this friend or group of people. You may think you know – or can guess – but that’s seldom the case with Saturn. You still need to find out more, and this is the right time to do so. Beyond what you might imagine is the case, there are other factors which must be taken into account, which may not even have shown themselves yet. It’s always a good idea to be slightly cynical, to the point of being suspicious, on a cycle like this! Remember everything you ever read or heard about bands and their musical differences, or political parties and their inner politics. That might be useful, even if it never happens to you. Remember what people say about friendship, too – and what they have always said. Sometimes these hoary old cliches or old wives’ tales have a solid grain of truth and can be very useful.
