Winter solstice's chart is for 23:03 GMT this year (http://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/december-solstice.html) and for December 22, 0:03 in The Netherlands. The chart of that moment shows the Moon rising before the Sun (almost New Moon) and Jupiter as well as Saturn without major aspects within a 5 degree orb.
NEW MOON DECEMBER 2014
Every year in December/January there is a conjunction of the Moon with the Sun in the astrological sign Capricorn. This year it is in the first degree of Capricorn. For those with the first degree of Capricorn, the New Moon is more important than to the rest of us. With this degree in the 10th house, they may expect changes in their public position, for example. When you were born on December 22/23, March 21/22, June 21/22 or September 23/24, the New Moon is in tight aspect with your natal Sun. This is your chance to find out if that really means change starting within a month. That is also true for those who have a 0-1 degree Capricorn, Cancer, Libra or Aries on the horizon (Ascendant-Descendant) or meridian (IC-MC) in the natal or progressed chart. In the 'Beeldgids van de dierenriem' (Helene and Willem A. Koppejan) there is a picture explained by Janduz of a couple holding hands but looking the other way. Another Sabian Symbol is that of a native American chief demanding power. The combination of this points at common or joined responsibilities to be the focus of the month to come. If your chart is being 'charged' by the New Moon, you are maybe about to experience changes in the field of responsibilities at work or at home. And if these changes happen to you, you know that New Moon worked for you:).
Most people simply want to know if their Xmas party will be fun. A third of them will check their sun sign to find out beforehand.
The positions of Venus, Jupiter and midpoint Venus/Jupiter are the position of fun and joy and party time. During the days between Xmas and New Year those with Sun, Venus, Moon, Ascendant or MC in the 22nd (21-22) degree of a fire sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are blessed with Jupiter in Leo Retrograde. This will help them to look back being happy even though there might be a less pleasant person who almost spoiled all the fun. If you were born on or around April 13, August 13 or December 13, this might happen to you.
A pleasant and loving Xmas is for those with a happy Venus related to their charts. Birthdays between May 8 and 18, September 10 and 20, January 8 and 18 are the lucky birthdays of this year. There is also fun around for those with any position in natal or progressed chart between the 18th and 27th degree of the earth signs Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn. Check your chart!
The day after Xmas Venus will be inconjunct Jupiter to remind us of 'too big, too many, too much'. Your weight might understand this:).
If your birthday is around end of October/beginnings of November or between January 25 and 31, the midpoint Venus/Jupiter will be on your natal Sun to make you feel happy with Father Xmas.
Of course, your individual charts and personal (or national) circumstances could keep you away from having a party. Xmas is a community celebration and it is a fact that not everybody will be able to join in. But, even if there is just a little bit of light on the horizon, try to be happy about the fact that this celebration has been worldwide for ages because it is the celebration of light and the sun growing. For those in a nasty period the come back of the sun with more light might help them see that there is hope, even in dark hours. That is what Xmas is about. Here is the Xmas chart of Rotterdam. Every place on earth has it's own Xmas chart.

Jupiter is trine Ixion, trine Pholus and trine Eris now. This triangle will be back again in 2015. As little study has been done about the dwarf planet Eris and the asteroids Ixion and Pholus, only time will tell what this trine will mirror. Eris is the symbol of disharmony, Ixion is the symbol of the 'bad guys', Pholus is the man who shot himself. Jupiter expands and helps (even our enemies). Trines are symbols of getting away with it and finding easy ways out. Lucky adjustments to be able to deal with nasty guys? Well, to get back to Xmas: maybe this Jupiter helps those with family problems:). I'll be on the look out for what happens during this trine.
HAVE A WARM, PEACEFUL AND NICE DECEMBER PARTY TIME!
