In general, events are likely to happen around December 3-4, December 9-10, December 16-17, December 24 and/or December 31.
If you are born around January 25, March 10-11, April 25, June 11, July 28, September 13, October 28 or December 12, this month of December 2013 is above all about mourning and/or spiritual experiences.
Also, you may feel more connected with the digital era in one way or the other.
If you are born around December 31, February 13, March 30, May 15, July 1, August 17, October 2 or November 16, there is quite some sorrow around on December 1.
You are talkative and everyone is chatting around.
Your brain is working in overdrive.
In mundane astrology, the astrological configurations that are active early December may point to Hurricanes and stormy weather.
It's best not to travel by sea for now.
If you are born around January 4, February 17, April 3-4, May 19-20, July 6, August 21-22, October 7-8 or November 20-21, there are fortunate developments going on around December 4-5.
You feel very optimistic and confident.
Some fortunate breaks will bring relief and you are in a talkative and witty mood.
Expect fortunate developments also in the world of technologies around December 4-5 when Mercury enters Sagittarius of hope and foreign affairs.
Mercury entered the sign of its detriment now and can become very talkative and full of ideas it cannot spread all at once.
If you are born around December 4-5, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) will be stressful with lots of tension and a tendency to rebel.
You don't want to give in and try to find your own way.
If you are born around December 5-6, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is marked by really hard work and lots of duties.
There may be construction work going on and/or, for some of you, a threat of losses.
Mercury at 2° Sagittarius squares Neptune at 2° Pisces around December 6 resulting in confusion.
Mercury in the sign of its detriment in this waning square easily feels betrayed and robbed.
Beware of theft and/or lies.
This is not the time for detailed work because you will oversee many little things, resulting in errors in judgment and/or mistakes.
Mars enters Libra, the sign of its detriment around December 7 and will reside in this sign for almost 7 months.
Normally, Mars spends not more than 6 (six) weeks (!) in a sign!
This unusually long stay of active Mars in reactive Libra is of importance because during its stay, it will build some highly powerful astrological patterns (T-squares and a Grand Cross) with Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto that will be noticeable to all of us.
Self-asserting Mars does not feel well in peaceful and balancing Libra.
It's time to learn to co-operate, work together in a balanced way for the next months.
Cooperation will be the keyword for the next months indeed.
During its stay in Libra, Mars will have to learn to express itself less pushy, less violently and less self-centered.
Indeed, there is someone else or there are other people to take into account.
If you are born under the Sun sign Aries, you may be 'under fire' the coming months.
You should not blame the other, the partner or other people for everything that goes wrong.
Anyway, in whatever way, you tend to be very involved in matters of other people.
If you are born around December 12, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is about mourning, spiritual experiences and/or an increased interest in metaphysical topics.
If you are born around March 8-9, June 9, September 11 or December 10, mid December is marked by construction work, real estate transactions, home improvements and/or moving (changing the residence).
If you are born around January 18-19, March 4-5, April 18-19, June 4-5, July 21-22, September 6-7, October 22-23 or December 5-6, there is study work and research necessary around December 13-14.
There is a lot of stress and tension noticeable and some hard decisions have to be taken.
Some of you may be obliged to take a trip.
Around December 17, Uranus at 8° Aries stations and turns direct again, releasing quite some freedom-loving, explosive and steamy energy.
We expect something big to happen in the world around December 17 because of the following coinciding powerful astrological configurations -- all active on the same day:
Unusual events may occur.
Stationing Uranus may bring severe storms and extreme weather (especially when it is in aspect with Mercury later this month) but will also release groundbreaking news and pave the way for new inventions and discoveries that will be quite controversial for some.
Interestingly, 8° Aries is a very talkative degree showing people excitingly chatting and/or spreading news or information.
Also, this degree is about un-covering and about forcing people (humanity) into a new environment and/or into new circumstances.
If you tenaciously stick to old and/or rigid patterns, stationing Uranus at 8° Aries will painfully force you to reconsider.
Be warned because this degree area has shocking and explosive Uranus characteristics!
The main lesson to learn is to let go the past and move fast forward.
In some instances, it is noticed by astrologer Michele Adler that this degree area is linked to assassination (attempts) and/or the removal of celebrities, leaders or people in positions of power.
There can be a very sudden career shift going on for some of you.
If you are born around January 25, March 10-11, April 25, June 11, July 28, September 13, October 28 or December 12, you are connected with metaphysical topics around December 17-18.
Beware of hoaxes, especially on the internet and don't trust the news around these days.
Between December 17-21, we expect lots of rain and/or inundations/floods here and there.
Also, it's likely that between December 17-19, some of your plans will be cancelled.
Moreover, between December 18-22, you tend to be separated from beloved ones.
This will be the more so if you are born around January 18, March 4, April 18, June 4, July 21, September 6, October 22 or December 5.
A beloved one may turn his or her back on you.
The Sun enters Capricorn around December 21, the same day Venus stations at 28° Capricorn and turns retrograde.
Some of you may fall out of love, others may experience some difficulties in sharing their love and matters of the heart may cool off, especially because Venus is in detached Capricorn.
Your focus shifts towards material goods and your budget.
What's more, Mercury too enters Capricorn (around December 24), adding to the material focus.
There are now four bodies (the Sun, Mercury, Pluto and Venus) in Capricorn so that governments, the corporate and political world and the banking system are in the spotlight.
Money, your budget and your career are your main fields of interest now -- not love.
The day after, around December 25, Mars at 8° Libra opposes stationing Uranus at 8° Aries.
The 8° in cardinal signs will be aspected and occupied by different bodies for the rest of the month so that it is best to re-read what we have written above about this degree meaning.
Because Mars is the dispositor of Uranus, this opposition is challenging, turbulent and accident-prone.
Physical injuries are to be feared and the aspect also brings opposing opinions and conflicts.
Beware of fire, especially around these festive days.
Actually, late December, Mars is building a Cardinal T-square in which Pluto is the apex point.
This impatient, violent and accident-prone T-square will push undirected energy till the first week of January 2014, covering the whole festive season.
So, try to be patient, careful and responsible.
In the last couple of days of December 2013, the Sun and Mercury in Capricorn will conjoin the apex body Pluto, increasing the power of this turbulent T-square.
This astrological configuration may result in (natural) disasters, stormy weather (like typhoons, hurricanes, tornados etc.) and lots of (traffic-)accidents.
Because of the predominant earth element and Pluto (representing the Underworld) in Capricorn (representing the surface of Mother Earth), late December can be marked by earthquakes and/or volcanic eruptions and/or mining issues.
Moreover, some earthquakes (like the Californian) happen with planetary activity around 8° in cardinal signs.
Metaphysically, natural disasters are the Earth's method of releasing negativity.
The late December configurations in more detail:
If you are born between March 28-April 2, June 28-July 4, September 30-October 5 or December 29-January 3, you will feel these heavy transits most.
Late December 2013 and early 2014 may become a very confrontational, stormy and intense period for many, presenting a new path to follow.
This is quite well supported by the New Year's perigee New Moon of new beginnings.

What's New on Our Web Site?Since our previous Love Letter, we also added different new articles (that were previously published in this Love Letter): one about Venus in the elements , one about Venus in the natal houses and another one about progressed Venus stationing .
We also added the page on which will be published the free 2014 monthly forecasts .
This page features all the 12 monthly calendars free to download as a pdf document so that you already can look at the 2014 transiting configurations.
We also removed the RSS feeds box in the left navigation bar.
Numerous pages were updated and edited with minor text changes and new (external) links.
One of the main difficulties when browsing large(r) web sites like ours is finding your way through it to look for the information you want.
Sometimes you have found the article or information and later on, when browsing the site again, you seem not to be able to find the information again.
A good navigation is worth a goldmine.
We heard from many of our visitors that our new look & feel already greatly helped in finding the relevant information.
However, there are still people who are confused and cannot find stuff easily.
That's why we now added 'breadcrumbs' on almost all our pages.
Breadcrumbs are an additional navigation aid used in user interfaces and web sites that allow visitors to keep track of their locations within the web site pages.
The term comes from the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale in which the two title children drop breadcrumbs to form a trail back to their home.
Just like in the tale, breadcrumbs in real-world applications offer users a way to trace the path back to their original landing point.
Breadcrumb navigation can greatly enhance the way users find their way around.
In terms of usability, breadcrumbs reduce the number of actions a web site visitor needs to take in order to get to a higher-level page, and they improve the findability of web site sections and pages.
Below the title of any article on our web site, you can find an additional horizontal (arrow) navigation in gradient peach and orange colors that point to where you are on our web site.
Because the colors are not 'web-safe', it's possible that they look differently on other monitors and computers or platforms.
It took many weeks to find, adjust and write the CSS code so that it still matches our web site and is compatible with most browsers and platforms.
For sure, that's not always easy because of the many incompatibilities.
Fortunately, we finally managed to write the CSS code and the breadcrumbs are now online on the majority of our pages.
On some pages, the accompanying HTML code is not installed yet so that there may be some pages missing the breadcrumbs.
The Eros PrincipleEros is an Asteroid (# 433, discovered on August 13, 1898 in Berlin by Gustav Witt) that some astrologers link to erotic love.
This makes sense because in mythology Eros represents a primal god (the male sexual force) born out of Chaos.
Hence, in astrology, it is told to represent physical desires.
However, Eros is much more.
Eros also represents the reproductive organs, the passion for life, sexual interests, survival instinct, excitement, emotional consummating desires.
Eros may indicate obsessive-compulsive drives and attitude.
The main principle of Eros is thus passionate desires. It's a mindset and primarily works out mentally (a mental process).
In medical astrology, Eros not only represents the reproductive organs but the heart as well.
By the way, Asteroids should never be delineated in isolation.
The main and prime reason to use Asteroids in your analysis is to fine-tune and get more detailed information in addition to the main horoscope analysis.
Most often Asteroids confirm what is already written in the chart and they give some additional juicy details not revealed otherwise.
There are tens of thousands of Asteroids packed in a horoscope wheel of 360°.
It makes no sense at all to use wide orbs when delineating aspects to Asteroids.
It's way beyond our comprehension that many astrologers still use orbs as wide as 3° or more to delineate the aspects to Asteroids in their analysis.
This way, you can 'prove' anything in a self-delusive and unscientific way.
The Asteroid principles are especially noticeable when they are at the same numerical degree as other planets or bodies.
When using the Asteroids allow an orb of maximum 1°.
There are related Asteroids with almost the same meanings, depending on their aspects: Juno, Lust, Psyche, Valentine, Sappho... and much more research is need to discern the finer meanings of the Asteroids.
In synastry (chart comparison), Eros indicates what excites you about the other.
According to Dr. J. Lee Lehman's observation if one person's Eros makes an aspect to another person's planet, the Eros person is smitten with the Planet person.
We can partly confirm this, especially when the very tight aspect is made with a personal point of the other.
Eros of one partner tightly aspecting the other's Sun may show physical attraction while Eros in a tight aspect to the other's Mars may denote sexual attraction.
In synastry, Eros may really point to a "turn on."
Eros has no meaning as to the endurability of a love union though.
Moreover, our preliminary research results rather point to unrequited love (affairs)!
After investigating the principle of Eros and its symbol (an arrow piercing a heart), we tend to believe, the symbolism is apt and may rather indicate an overwhelming and/or passionate affair that may end if no other configurations indicate endurability or 'true love.'
Indeed, Eros has nothing to do with 'true love' but rather with 'love or lust at first sight' and a magnetic pull.
Finding the position of Eros in the horoscope
When you go to the Astrodienst AG , go to their free reports section (click on Free Horoscopes in the left navigation bar).
Click on Horoscope Drawings & Calculations. Click on the Extended Chart selection.
Type your birth details where it says at the top.
Scroll down the page and at the bottom there is a box that says 'Additional objects'.
Below that box, there is another horizontal box which says "Additional asteroids, fixed stars, and other objects, please select from the respective lists below."
Type 433 in the box, and then click to show the chart and you'll have the position of Asteroid Eros in your horoscope.
