Christmas is on the horizon along with a Full Moon this week; the waxing Moon in Taurus starts our week off with a focus on finances, organization and the beauty of nature. Friday brings the Full Moon, impacting Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries natives (as well as those who have planets early in any of the aforementioned signs). Expect people to be a bit tense as we move toward the emotion laden Cancer Full Moon and the New Year; do what you can to stave off holiday stress and to cope with the Full Moon energies–exercise, meditation, Reiki, or aromatherapy are all great choices. And now to the week’s Celestial report!
Sunday 23 December 2012 (1 Star): The waxing Moon in Taurus gives us a love of luxury, but a Moon-Saturn opposition at 4:13 AM suggests there will be hindrances to our plans for indulgence even if it is the holidays, so go easy on spending for now (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PST). The Moon trine Pluto at 4:35 offers a blockbuster, habit breaking energy, so you might want to get up early and do some affirmations, law of attraction or other manifesting work. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is all she wrote for the day!
Moon in Taurus colors: Cream, blue, spring green, pink, yellow or turquoise. Crystals: Jade, peridot, turquoise, lapis lazuli or moss agate. Incense/Essential Oils: Honeysuckle, mint, sage or ylang ylang.
Monday 24 December 2012 (4 Stars): Christmas Eve isn’t a bad day–it’s just not a great day. We build all day toward a determined and high energy Moon-Mars trine at 9:58 PM and then the Moon is void of course. All you late shoppers should have the wind at your back; the one potential drawback is dealing with short tempered people who are stressed by their need to shop at the last minute, so shields up Captain! The Moon hops into Gemini at 11:13 PM in preparation for a local travel and communications oriented Christmas.
Moon in Gemini colors: Yellow, orange, black, blue, silver, pink or iridescent shades. Crystasl: Apophyllite, alexanderite, tiger’s eye, moonstone, agate or moss agate. Incense/Essential oils: Dragon’s blood, mastic or mint.
Tuesday 25 December 2012 (2 Stars): Things may seem a bit weird, or even deceptive so forget about making important decisions when the Moon squares Neptune at 1:04 AM. Surprises, shocking news or ingenious ideas come a calling when the Moon forms a sextile to Uranus at 8:45 AM–hopefully these are all nice Christmas surprises! It may seem as if the Gods of good luck, optimism and adventure saved the best till last when the Moon trines Jupiter at 4:18 PM; and then Mars, the planet of aggression, action and courage enters upstart Aquarius at 4:49 PM triggering lots of unusual action and activity–for self, friends and group associations, throughout January 2013. Lovers, relationships with your children and even creative projects hit major snags when the Sun squares Uranus at 5:32 PM, producing some ugly behavior; try not to be the one exhibiting said ugly behavior.
Wednesday 26 December 2012 (1 Star): You may need to balance your financial books along with the needs of a significant other when the Moon opposes Venus at 1:09 AM–the watchword is compromise, for now. You may be able to shift or transform your concerns for the better when Saturn sextiles Pluto at 4:48 PM; though it may not look easy, set some intentions and get moving! Late night chats or other communication projects stall under the influence of a Moon-Mercury opposition at 10:50 PM. Maybe compromise will help, but then so would calling it a night and waiting for a better time to iron out misunderstandings. This is especially true since the Moon is void of course after that last aspect.
Thursday 27 December 2012 (1 Star): The Moon strolls into its home sign of Cancer at 12:06 PM. A little later on creatives and mystics get a tremendous boost from a Moon-Neptune trine at 2:04 PM; work on creative projects or meditate to download insights from the Universe to get the biggest bang for your buck. You or someone you know may feel driven to throw caution to the wind and do some crazy or weird thing when the Moon squares Uranus at 9:34 PM, but it’s best to reign in that freedom urge and avoid putting yourself, or others, in danger.
Friday 28 December 2012 (1 Star): It’s more like a half a star day since our lone ‘positive aspect’ is to Saturn early in the day; oh well, make do with what you have, right? The Full Moon arriving at 2:21 AM is likely to disturb our sleep, so it might be good to do some relaxing yoga poses, have some chamomile or valerian tea and or listen to sleep mp3s before heading off to bed Thursday night.
Someone wants to have their way, come what may, when the Moon opposes Pluto at 6:34 AM; if it’s your boss or a VIP you may just have to roll with it, although a compromise is a possibility on points of contention between you. Get your day or your key projects organized when the Moon trines Saturn at 6:43 AM and take advantage of Saturn’s mean structuring energies. The Moon is then is void of course, so no launching of new projects until the Moon changes signs on Saturday.
Saturday 29 December 2012 (0 Stars): The Moon enters Leo at 11:45 PM, so the entire day is void of course until then. Rest, meditate and dream up some hot ideas and goals for the coming new New Year!
A New Year and a new you are right around the corner!
