Astrology Week of Dec 31

Last Quarter Moon Phase
December 29, 2018 
4:434am 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 speak to your partnerships? What action are you taking that speak to finding balance? What do you need to do more of that you have neglected?  How will support bigger goals?   Where do you need to negotiate?   How is negotiating inspired?   

Special Focus:
12/31: Mars enters Aries.   Fight or flight.    Breaking out of old routines.  New ground.   Actions that bring on Independence. 

Balsamic Moon Phase

January 1, 2019 
9:06pm EST 

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new.  

Focus on How are you releasing your controlling nature?  How are you releasing your black and white nature?  How are you releasing the stuff that is ‘gunking’ you up? 

Special Focus:
1/1: Sun conjunct Saturn.  Discipline.  Measured.  Taking a look and figuring out the best move that is smart and sane.  

1 4: Mercury enters Capricorn 

NEW MOON January 5, 2019   8:28pm EST 15 Cap 25

Cancer Full Moon

Cancer Full Moon
December 22, 2018
12:48 PM EST
0 Cancer 49

The Full Moon in the sign Cancer arrives within 24 hours of the Winter Solstice.   There is also the Ursids meteor shower adding fireworks to the sky with up to a dozen or so shooting stars per hour-- depending on your location.  

In the Full Moon chart the Sun trines Uranus who sextiles the Moon while Chiron quares Sun and squares the Moon.   There may be lessons during this three-day phase.   Lessons both personally and globally.   

The moon at zero degrees is at the beginning of the Cancer journey, which means the lesson could be new and somehow relates to roots, family, emotions, mom, food and things that are cozy.  Are you attracted or repelled by the Cancerian energy?   Will you put on your hard crab shell and hide your feelings?  Or will you bring out your pinchers and go snip snip.      Chiron in Pisces is self wounding and challenges our faith, “Why can’t I just forgive ____?”  This is a question that may come up.    There could be some hideous example in the world that shows the lowest level of humanity. Will we be able to forgive them for what they did even if it has nothing to do with us?    Luckily Uranus provides some uplighting thoughts and creativity.  Even in the middle of a tough moment we may have a thought or impulse that is just pure genius.   

During this full moon our emotions will be up pretty high and we will process a lot but we also will connect some dots that we never thought about before and bam, like a magic we put something together that heals. 

That is what we call a good thing.

This Week in Astrology

We move into Gibbous Moon on December 19.  In this case the focus will be on practicality. 

Gibbous Moon
December 19, 2018 
2:52 am 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: 

How are refining your practical nature?  How are you refining your disciplined nature? How are you refining your ability to be ‘sure & steady’ to win the race?   How is this process inspiring? 

Special focus: 
12/20 Sun Trine Uranus.  Joy and creativity come together.  Fun, inspiration and break through that speaks to new goals. 

12/21 Venus Trine Neptune.  Intuition is high.  Love and money mean something when they inspire kindness

12/21 Mercury conjunct Jupiter. Crazy big ideas, big thinking.  Big conversations.   Maybe a bit exaggerated. 

12/21Sun enter Capricorn.  Happy Solstice!

Sagittarius New Moon. Get Inspired. Now!

Sagittarius New Moon 
December 7, 2018 
2:20 am EST
15 Sag 07

We are down to the last couple hours before Mercury turns direct and I was able to get Sag New Moon Up in time.   Praise the lord.  
I hope you will take the time to give it a read. It's not that long and I really want you to make the most of the 29 day cycle.   I am helping you recharge your batteries which is so critical as we head off into 2019.

Mercury Direct

Mercury Direct
December 6
4:22pm EST
27 Scorpio 16

Let's take a moment and consider what has come up since October 28th? 
Things that may have come up that speak to shared resources (often money), loans and debts.  Legal matters and sex may have also come up.   And then there is power and empowerment.  Along with being visionary and goals.  Where are you setting your sights?  What goal has started to come up in your field of vision?  This is part and parcel of this final Mercury retrograde for 2018. 

Upon turning direct on the 6th we will continue to process and fine tune all the stuff that came up.   Even if we feel tired and even if there are outstanding issues we will still find that we have crossed a major hurdle because our brain is now on the right side of this equation.   Watch what you accomplish or movements you make between now and the 24th when the shadow completes.

And of course all the miscommunication, lost mail, disconnectedness should abate with Mercury's new course.  

Enjoy your new journey.

Yin yang.  Balance.   Release so you can be ready for the Sagittarius New Moon on December 7th.
Please note that Mercury will station direct on December 6.  Hurray.
