The waning Moon in Cancer is finally relieved of duty at 5:57 PM Sunday when the Moon switches allegiance to Leo (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). We begin the last month of 2012 in a cleaning/finishing up mode–or in other words, now is a good time to look at what habits, situations or things you’d like not to take with you into the coming year. By the end of the month we will have a Full Moon and that might be the time to take your list of things you are releasing and do a little burning bowl ceremony to honor what has been and to make room for the new! In the meantime, there’s more work to be done, so let us begin…
Sunday 2 December 2012 (0 Stars): Our one aspect of the day is a Sun-Jupiter opposition at 5:45 PM inclining us to overdo in areas of romance, creativity and even perhaps gambling in one form or another. Moderation is a great keyword for the day; avoid going to extremes and you’ll have played your (energy) hand well today.
The Moon enters Leo at 5:57 PM and the energies lift a bit from sometimes moody Cancer to sunny Leo, giving us a bit of breathing room on this last day before the work week begins. However, with the overall (star) energies so low, do make time for self-care work (chakra balancing, energy work, exercise, etc.) to insure you keep a stable, high vibration.
Moon in Leo colors: Red, gold, green, yellow or orange. Crystals: Peridot, tiger’s eye, rose quartz, or amber. Incense/Essential oils: Amber, frankincense, myrrh, musk or sandalwood.
Monday 3 December 2012 (3 Stars): A high energy trine between the Moon and Uranus at 3:06 AM may create havoc in your plans for a good night’s sleep; melatonin, lavender, sleep CD’s and any other night magic that works for you is probably best trotted out in the wee hours of the morning to insure a decent and uninterrupted night’s sleep. Laborious duties await when you awaken (no) thanks to the square between the Moon and Saturn at 7:30 AM; do your best to dispatch your least palatable duties and get on with the day as quickly as possible. The afternoon hours look a bit more optimistic and user friendly when the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter at 3:50 PM–keep your chin up and soldier on! Creative solutions to problems are likely to occur to you when the Moon trines the Sun at 6:04 PM; just take care to make plans to actualize some of those neat ideas so they don’t slip through your fingers. Love and money don’t look that great when the Moon squares Venus at 11:38 PM; start your law of attraction work now so that clever solutions present for you as soon as possible.
Tuesday 4 December 2012 (0 Stars): This lack luster day offers one unhappy aspect–a square between the Moon and Mercury at 2:08 PM. News won’t be what you’d hoped, but tomorrow we have a bang up Pluto aspect that may dissolve your challenges with ease. In addition the Moon is void of course after that last aspect, so there’s no point in booting up new projects until the Moon changes signs Wednesday morning.
Wednesday 5 December 2012 (2 Stars): The Moon enters Virgo at 3:51 AM bringing our focus to work issues, health and dependent care concerns for the next couple of days. And while the energy is still fairly low, we get the least helpful aspects over with fairly early starting with an opposition between the Moon and Neptune at 4:52 AM; it’s probably best to hold off on signing documents or making agreements since something may be a bit fishy–you may not be thinking clearly either, so step away from inking any deals for now. A Moon-Saturn sextile at 5:14 PM will help you plan, organize and clean up nicely while the trine between the Moon and Pluto at 7:35 PM gives you power to transform pesky situations to your liking–so rock on!
Moon in Virgo colors: Black, brown, gray, green, white, peach or blue Crystals: Peridot, agate, moss agate, aquamarine or turquoise. Incense/Essential oils: Patchouli, mint, lavender, bergamot, or honeysuckle.
Thursday 6 December 2012 (2 Stars): The square between the Moon and Jupiter at 12:04 AM may have you feeling like you’re between a rock and a hard space right now. If you’ve over done it financially or promised more than you can deliver, pay day is probably here, but don’t fret, you’ll be up and at ’em when the Moon trines Mars at 7:31 AM ready to take on your challenges with courage and determination. Intuition will be offline and creativity too when the Moon squares the Sun at 7:31 AM (Last Quarter Moon; 14 degrees Virgo); it’s officially time to take stock of which of your plans finished up nicely this cycle and which need rebooting at the New Moon next week. On the plus side, money and love are probably looking a bit better when the Moon forms a sextile to Venus at 1:54 PM and that’s good news, right?
Friday 7 December 2012 (1 Star): You’ve probably noticed the low energy trend this week is sporting, so do take some time to rest, eat well (meaning healthy foods) and make time to meditate in order to keep your vibration high this week. Meanwhile, an unhelpful sextile between the Moon and Mercury occurs at 2:35 AM; this is great if you need to write a term paper in the middle of the night–not so helpful if you plan on sleeping. The regular insomnia busting agents should tag along to bed with you Thursday night in order to fend off monkey mind in the wee hours of the day. The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until 10:35 AM at which point it will enter the stylish and romantically oriented sign of Libra. Freakish surprises, off the wall behavior and other assorted weirdness is possible when the Moon opposes Uranus at 6:43 PM; go to your favorite hiding place and plan on staying awhile (you’ll see why shortly).
Moon in Libra colors: black, blue, royal blue, cerulean, pink, rose or pastels. Crystals: Opal, agate, fire agate, rose quartz, lapis lazuli, celesite or aquamarine.
Saturday 8 December 2012 (2 Stars): The Moon square Pluto at 1:27 AM Saturday makes Friday a night to stay home–lest you have an unfortunate run-in with someone who requires anger management training. Never the less, good fortune will find you, despite it being early in the morning (Moon trine Jupiter at 5:00 AM); did you buy a lottery ticket or come up with a brilliant idea that allows you to kick your 9-5 to the curb? Either way–congrats!
More anger management students are likely to appear on the scene thanks to a square between the Moon and Mars at 3:34 PM; least you think they are open to cultivating a different point of view, I’d pass on giving the troubled one(s) a lecture. Do, however, bring paper and pen along on your next jaunt to capture some hot intuitive ideas for your key projects (Moon sextile Sun at 4:37 PM)–that way you’ll be ready to capture said brilliant ideas and take action when the time is right! The Moon is void of course after that last aspect until tomorrow afternoon; table your plans for new projects until after that time.
