This Astrological Week

Monday of what is often the weird week that follows Christmas.  We aren’t at work, we aren’t at school, maybe we are on vacation or maybe we are deep into that game called, “What day do we take down the Tree?”  …..Lunar speaking we are still in Full Moon Phase on Monday (28th) until 7:42pm PST  (10:42pm EST).    We discussed Full Moon HERE and if you are still sorting through your world of desire with your world of reality do something on this Monday to support and help concrete what you want.  Do it before the Moon moves into Disseminating.

10:42pm EST

Disseminating: Share information; find a teacher or someone who has more knowledge. Perhaps there was a big ol’ blow out on the full and one feels in need of support and help, this is the phase to reach out to one who knows more. This is when we find a rabbi or a minister or therapist who gives us more insight.   And of course, you too may be ready to teach and share your own information. 

Focus on:  How are sharing your pride? How are you sharing your strength?  How are you sharing your bravery?  How are you sharing your loyalty?

Special focus:
12/29:  Sun sextile Neptune.  Inspired, illumination comes from something bigger.   Working it internally. 
12/29: Mercury Square Mars.  (Cap and Libra) Fighting words.  Arguments around relationships.  Cold thinking versus hot relationships. What is not working practically speaking?  What is off balance.

12/30:  Venus enters Sagittarius
1/1/16 Mercury enters Aquarius

Last Quarter Moon Phase
January 2, 2015
12:31am EST

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living  “The serenity prayer

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

Focus on:

What actions are you taking that take care of your relationships?  Watch actions can you take care of that speak to balance?  What actions can you do that speak to negotiations?    How can you find compromise?

Full Moon and Uranus Direct --Merry Christmas!

Full Moon Phase
December 25, 2016
6:11am EST
3 Cancer 19

Yes, we have seen the news reports.  It is the first full moon on Christmas since 1977 

And we won’t get the next one until 2034.   I mentioned last week there have been plenty of full moons activated on Dec. 23 and Dec 24 which spill over on Christmas so we are all familiar with the high emotions of a full moon meeting the high emotions of Christmas but this year is a wee bit different for sure.

Capricorn Sun brings out the pragmatic.  Cancer brings out the emotional.    The Full moon points out where we are out of alignment or where we are in alignment.   Two weeks ago on Sag New Moon we planted seeds that spoke to a new adventure and where we wanted to set our sights.   What is around the corner?   What do we want around the corner?  Where do we need faith?   We stoked the fires to inspire us.    Now here we are on Full moon and we are looking at what is our reality.   And with Cancer a lot of the reality involves our family.  Who are these people?    How are we interacting with them?  Is there more we want for our family?   And if it is not family that is around us then look at our emotions.  How are they speaking to the seeds we planted for our future?   What feelings keep washing up on us?  Are they helpful towards our goals?    Capricorn is all about managing.   How can we manage our emotions?   This does not mean shutting down our emotions or our feelings, but how can we let them pass through us so that they don’t shut down our goals? 
There is a lovely trine between the Moon and Neptune so there is support from spirit and divine.   Perhaps it is random thought or a quiet knowing that our goals are correct.

Also on Christmas Uranus will be turning direct at 10:52pm EST.   Let’s play the game, “There are no accidents.”  With that in mind how interesting is it that on a rare Christmas Full Moon when emotions are high we also get Uranus turning direct in Aries?     And again, remember we are in the Sag lunar cycle with emphasis on adventures and goals and  asking for more.   There we are surrounded by our family ….and in that environment, Uranus who a smidgen past the halfway mark in his journey is coaxing us to make changes.    Changes that speak to new beginnings.   And independence.   And remember independence does not mean being alone.  It means a new path that speaks to something in you that is independent of others. What is that gift?   What is that pulse?  What is that inner vibe that knows a change is coming?  Uranus will leave Aries in 2018 so we only have a couple more years to let Uranus stoke our fires before he goes into Taurus and that is a whole different kettle of fish.  Trust me.   And all of this on Christmas?   This isn’t occurring on Flag Day or Columbus Day or some random holiday.  Nope it is on the muther of all holidays:  Christmas.    Where emotions are peak.  And it is a full moon.   

Yeah, the Universe is getting our attention.  

And if you don’t celebrate Christmas pretend that you do and look around and ask is everything really lining up?  If it is not gather your emotions and get practical about what it will take to get those changes.
Do you need more vacations?  Go online to your bank and have money taken out to another account every week that will be your vacation account.
Do you need to go back to school?  Go online and look at some classes.   Do you need a new wardrobe?  Go online and find a clothes shopper.   And what about the body?  Do you need to make a doctor’s appointment?  Send them an email.  Do you need to exercise?  Put on your jogging shoes and go outside.      Look around and see what needs a tune up.  Don’t beat yourself up but do make changes now and know that they will evolve into concrete manifestations as the year unfolds.

This reminder that your goals are real and that your emotions are real and that you CAN work both of them to get where you need to go…is my gift to you.  You can do it.  Hey, I’m doing it, too. 

Merry Christmas and enjoy the Full Moon.

The Week before Christmas in Astro land

THIS WEEK before Christmas…..
Monday is still First Quarter Moon.  Then we move into Gibbous.  The Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st  and on Christmas we go into Full Moon in Cancer.  Just to be clear yes, this may be the first full moon to launch on Christmas since 1977 but there have been plenty of full moons  that launched on the 23rd or 24th where the full phase technically was still on Christmas.   So if the emotions are pulling hard on Christmas it will not be first time the moon is in the mix.  Just sayin’.   But we do have the extra zinger of Uranus turning direct late in the evening (EST)….for a little ‘out of left field’ stuff.  Oh, joy! 

Anyway, it should be a very active week on many levels.  

Focus on:  What actions can you take that speak to your truth but also speak to your faith?  What actions can you take that speak to humanitarianism? 

Special focus
12/20: Mercury Sq Uranus: Breaking out in thinking will be pronounced.  There might be some fighting words along the way.

Gibbous Moon
December 21, 2015
8:06pm EST

We refine our information.  We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like.  We sort through details.  Have we missed something?  How are we sifting through the information?  Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected.  Refine our actions. 

Focus on:
What have you missed about money?   What have you missed about property?   What have you missed about being practical?  What have you missed about building something up from the ground—brick by brick?  

Special Focus:

12/21: Sun in Capricorn
12/24: Venus sext Jupiter.  Fun.  A bountiful feeling.  Perhaps a surprising gift. 
12/25: Mercury semi square Neptune.   Delusional thoughts around humanitarian issues or maybe personal. Best to go quiet and ride it out.
12/25 Uranus turns direct (10:52pm EST)  (Post will follow)
