The waning Moon in Scorpio jumps start a new week–and this week also sports a New Moon in Capricorn. However, we will need to make it through the low energy of a dark of the Moon phase before the New Moon arrives on Thursday. If you feel you’re unusually tired or unable to take effective action in the way you might like, know that the energy tides are low, get some extra rest and take care of yourself until the energies build up to support us once again.
Sunday 9 December 2012 (3 Stars): The Moon is void of course until 1:51 PM when it enters Scorpio (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). Secrets, transformation, mysticism, intimate partners and other people’s money will be in focus for the next couple of days–along with some pretty intense energy, so watch out! The day sports just one aspect, a trine between the Moon and Neptune at 2:50 PM which is great for artists, dancers, musicians, poets, mystics, and photographers; breathtaking insights are yours if you have time to meditate during the period leading into this aspect.
Moon in Scorpio colors: Black, red, maroon, gray, brown or orange. Crystals: agate, tiger’s eye, bloodstone, jet, aquamarine or opal. Incense/Essential Oils: patchouli, vanilla, violet, myrrh or cedar
Monday 10 December 2012 (5 Stars): Our first five star day in quite awhile finally arrives and it’s in transformational Scorpio! So, what areas of life experience need some retooling, because now is a good time to do a burning bowl ceremony or some other release ritual to set what no longer works for you free. The conjunction between the Moon and Saturn at 2:21 AM suggests emotions may be at a low ebb or that family obligations may feel restrictive at this time. Night owls benefit from the transformational energy of a sextile between the Moon and Pluto at 3:55 AM; later Mercury re-enters Sagittarius at 5:40 PM after its retrograde, and issues concerning college admissions, legal matters, publishing and the distribution of materials as well as long distance communications or travel are up to bat. You can work up a sweat at the gym or in the messy garage thanks to a Moon-Mars sextile at 7:51 PM; whatever activity requires action and dedication, go for it, you’ve got a green light!
Tuesday 11 December 2012 (3 Stars): The dark of the Moon phase begins today, so take extra care if you’re feeling a bit lethargic. As the day begins we have a square between Mercury and Neptune at 4:58 AM to deal with; muddled thoughts, along with deceptive or confusing information–all in all a good time to sleep in! Love and money look downright lovely when the Moon conjoins Venus at 5:08 AM; note that the Moon is void of course until 2:22 PM.
The Moon square Neptune at 3:22 PM reiterates the confusion theme we began the day with. Take your time in making important decisions–a strong aspect at the end of the day may bring a breakthrough in thinking, so hang in there. We begin the clearing of our thoughts and communications with a conjunction between the Moon and Mercury at 4:21 PM; careful not to allow your emotions to overrule your head. Brilliant insights, mental clarity and ingenious ideas clear your thinking further when the Moon trines Uranus at 9:40 PM; after this aspect you’ll know exactly what you need to do.
Moon in Sagittarius colors: Red, gold, green, indigo, yellow, mauve, purple, or silver. Crystals: Lapis lazuli, malachite, obsidian, opal, amethyst, sugilite or turquoise. Incense/Essential Oils: Frankincense, sage, dragon’s blood, myrrh, or copal.
Wednesday 12 December 2012 (3 Stars): Just one more day till the New Moon; today, however, we have a one star Moon-Jupiter opposition at 6:12 AM. Over promising, over spending, just plain over-doing it is not a wise choice at this time. Do your best to reign in expectations, promises and spending as best you can now.
Thursday 13 December 2012 (2 Stars): The New Moon arrives at 12:42 AM (at 21 degrees of Sagittarius) and our focus will shift to overseas travel and communication, higher education, religion, legal issues and athletic prowess for the next 30 days; note the Moon is void of course after that aspect until it enters Capricorn at 1:43 PM. Later Uranus makes its direct station forward at 4:02 AM; surprises, shocking news, clever downloads and innovative new inventions will be all the rage in the next several days as motion of Uranus releases a welcome breath of fresh air.
Additional creative energy comes to our aid when the Moon sextiles Neptune at 2:46 PM; expect lots of inspiration for creatives and spiritual enthusiasts! Uranus gives us one last jolt for the day when the Moon forms a square to it at 9:01 PM; expect wild, unruly behavior from some quarter–unless you’re home alone, in which case it will probably just be news about wild, unruly behavior…
Moon in Capricorn colors: Black, dark brown, gray, dark green, royal blue or violet. Crystals: Obsidian, jet, onyx, black amber, bloodstone or amethyst. Incense/Essential oils: Musk, mint, patchouli or gardenia.
Friday 14 December 2012 (5 Stars): The Moon sextile Saturn at 2:24 AM gives those of us awake in the early morning hours a chance to organize, plan and clean up. If we are still up at 3:25 AM we will be in the catbird seat for the Mercury-Uranus trine that brings genius to everyday mortals who are open to its incredible insights and ingenious ideas. If you sleep through that last aspect you’ll probably miss the powerhouse Moon-Pluto conjunction at 3:30 AM, bringing to light mysteries, unraveling old habits and packing a powerful, transformative punch. You might want to be awake in the wee hours of the day and skip the rest since there are no additional aspects the remainder of the day.
Saturday 15 December (5 Stars): Sleep may be hard to come by when the Moon conjoins Mars at 12:17 AM; by now you know the regular sleep enhancing agents that need to tag along with you come bedtime, right (lavender, melatonin, valerian tea, sleep mp3s to name a few)? A sextile between the Moon and Venus at 1:15 PM might be a good time to spruce yourself up for a holiday party–a trip to the salon for a mani, pedi anyone? Speaking of Venus, she hops into Sagittarius at 8:38 PM, so don’t be surprised if foreign ports of call or a handsome stranger with an exotic accent catches your eye now through the end of the month. Creative ideas and some stellar insights arrive when the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus at 9:30 PM; creatives take note!
And that’s a wrap for mid-December 2012–it seems like it’s just flying by, and with it 2012. If you’re ready to take a look at what 2012 offers in the way of love, career or money/prosperity issues, book your private Astrology or Tarot consultation here.
