As I finish writing this post on the New Moon in Capricorn I am so pleased to note that once the shortest day appears tomorrow, December 21, 2104 summer is just around the corner for the Northern Hemisphere. Days start getting longer. I am ready. This has been the coldest autumn that I can remember in the East. Maybe warm days will arrive much earlier than usual. Just wishing! Believe it or not I love snow and brisk air in WINTER not in autumn. Much is happening on the national and local scenes. Shane Montgomery is still missing and it is going on close to 4 weeks on Christmas day when he disappeared from Manayunk. Found out through Facebook that another man is missing in Pittsburgh. He didn’t show up for his job at a hospital out there. No sign of him either. This is getting weirder by the moment. What’s going on with Putin? And the Cuba ban is lifting.
So where do you go and what do you do now as the Solstice comes in as stated above on December 21 at 6:03pm EST, 3:03pm PST? The past is ending as we leave go the baggage of the past and move forward into 2015. A couple of hours later the New Moon in Capricorn (Sun in Capricorn) arrives at 8:35pm EST, 5:35pm PST, 1:35am GMT (December 22, 2014). This is a time of big shifting in the earth’s magnetic field and new energy can trigger changes in DNA. If you are looking for downloads this is a time for it to happen. They will occur within and without. Some will have breakthroughs and others may have breakdowns . Mercury shows up in the picture on the December 23 conjoining Pluto and the Moon and Sun squaring Uranus. With the Pluto conjoining Venus today, December 22 there may be a tyrant/victim mentality taking place which can last a couple of days. This asks you if you are dominating others or giving away your power.
New Moon in Capricorn is about goals. Since it is in 0 degrees 6’ this tells you that it is about starting fresh in something new. It could very much be about business or other type of partnership. Maybe even marriage for some. Of course, if it is a project then you will need to plan and organize and be patient. This is a long term goal. It will develop slowly yet as it does you know it will be stable and secure. What you choose to do will necessitate a way of shifting your thoughts and please let the old junk go. Some of you just like to resist the changes and hang on for dear life. It won’t work if you do that. And any of you starting a new partnership or renewing one will find that this is saying to do so with a new perspective. You will come together as equals finding a common basis and then enriching the lives of each of you.
Where you find Capricorn in your chart is where you have power. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and that indicates you are building a secure foundation within to enhance your individuality in order for you to take it out there to work with humanity. So many I see have the talents and abilities to enhance the lives of others yet are fearful to do so. Obstacles may pop up. Can you handle them? Are you committed to move past them? Have you truly looked at where you stand? Do you have inspiration about the future which you can use in the now? If immediate matters are bothering you, take care of them in the now so they can be cleared out before they interfere in your move forward.
As you are awaiting the arrival of the New Moon, Mr. Freedom himself, dear Uranus in Aries goes direct the same day as the New Moon. Watch so this direct motion doesn’t throw you off balance. Watch your emotional reactions, dear ones, because they could bring a blow-up in some area of your life. As stated December 22 is a great day for starting new projects which grow over a long period of time. Watch out for financial affairs at this time.
Let’s take a look at what the ruler of the New Moon is doing. Well, dear ones, Saturn is moving into another sign on December 23. It is currently in the last degree of Scorpio. As it went through Scorpio you learned about abandonment, betrayal and all those secrets that started to show up and maybe a bit of power or struggles related to the power. Or maybe the secrets are still hiding and will be kind and come out this week.
Saturn goes into Sagittarius and that is all about integrity…how many of you walk your talk? It is also saying let’s talk about trust. How about what can you teach others? Since Capricorn is the goat and Saturn is about slow and stable then suggestion is to climb the mountain slowly in anything new you begin. If patience is your weak point, frustration comes. So, I suggest you stop resisting the process and let go that which no longer serves you so you can bring your gifts out and share with the rest of us. Saturn returns to Scorpio in June and will bring you face to face with anything you may have not cleared out regarding betrayal and power and issues I mentioned earlier in the paragraph. It will stay until September. Hang tough at that time because you want to let go what has to go.
One other planet is now important-Charon. It is in Pisces at present and it helps with healing. So wherever you have Pisces 13-14 degrees, it will help you bring sacredness back into your life in whatever area of your chart it touches.
Since the New Moon is a new start then please know that the house it is found in will be the focus of a new beginning for whatever project you have in mind. It falls in my Seventh House of partnerships conjoining Juno. Is this business or personal? Only time will tell. Enough said. So the New Moon in your chart will be more intense for those who have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars and angles) at anywhere from 26 degrees to 5 degrees of Sagittarius/Capricorn, Pisces/Aries, Gemini/Cancer and Virgo/Libra since the New Moon is at 0 degrees 6’. It is usually about 4-5 degrees either way from that degree that is affected the most.
It is time to make the best kind of guess when you look at your new direction. Remember you can use past and the now and anything else you need to make your decision as to where you are heading. I wish you luck. Do choose wisely. Leave the darkness behind and go with the Light.
I wish you blessings for a happy holiday season. For those who celebrate Christmas, do have a happy one. And may the New Year manifest a new you with a new beginning in a direction that is your truth. Until again. Love, Jan
Let it snow as the song goes. One thing is wrong with this picture. It is autumn and I think I have seen more snow than there would be in the winter around here. Remember that the Solstice is soon upon us on December 21, 2013. And the following days are off the chart oppressive and looking a bit depressed. And you really want to hear more. I am looking for the good energy. Guess you have to continue to keep yourself blanketed with the Light and stay away from the continued pulling on you from others. No one has a pass on this energy. So, remove your dander out of the uproar. By the 21st I am looking for more of you who are stuck in the Matrix to awaken with the help of the Uranus/Neptune aspects from the Solar Eclipse in November. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Keep your words to a minimum and your actions even less for December 17, 2013 Oh boy, this is a time that rumbles can happen. This FULL MOON is more than intense. Looking at a Gemini Full Moon I would find myself looking to get together with friends and chat and have fun and all the rest of that kind of thing. This GEMINI FULL MOON is beyond intense. It can be downright cantankerous and a bit unruly. Here it is the holiday season in many places and you may think twice about doing any gathering at all. If you do, watch it – one wrong word can set off someone’s hidden anger. Gemini Moon under better circumstances loves to flirt and chat and share information and have lots of social interaction. This is far from the norm coming up.
I will say that a doozy of a time will be showing itself in the next few weeks. This FULL MOON in Gemini is at 25deg.36’ occurs on December 17, 2013 at 4:28 am EST and 1:28 am PST. Those most affected are those who have Sun/Moon and planets at 22-29 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Under normal circumstances you would continue to talk and talk and talk. These are unreal circumstances and I would say just keep quiet unless you say something nice and kind. Why do this all of a sudden and not say the truth or be your witty self? Venus in Capricorn is out of sorts with the FULL MOON in Gemini. It semisextiles (not too bad) the Sun in Sagittarius and inconjuncts (adjusting needed) the Moon in Gemini. Yep! And I haven’t even gotten started yet. Perhaps along the way I can find a good feeling to share. By the way, Venus in Capricorn is about good manners so don’t even think about coming to others without appropriate manners and good will. Mercury is in Sagittarius which would be a good thing. There is too much of an outgoing attitude for Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio. Stop treading on those water sign feelings. Cranky is the word. Maybe you can hide from the stares and glares.
The Sun in Sagittarius is about finding your life vision. For what reason have you come to this life? This linked to the Moon in Gemini is about rising up to your higher mind. Mercury is conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposes the Moon in Gemini. Mercury does not like the Jupiter and Saturn watery feelings. It makes the Mercurial energy grumpy. I guess I will be walking the halls of work to keep the energy flowing because it is opposing my Uranus. Great!!! Many thoughts and ideas for a partnership come to the forefront. Really? Anyway, along with this there is Uranus turning direct in Aries and then right on its tall is Mars who has just entered Libra a couple of days ago almost opposing Uranus. Will you have lively conversations or rebellious actions on December 25? Jupiter trine (good) Saturn will keep you in the flow. So it does help.
Any of you who are testing fate may have things chopped right out of your life if it doesn’t belong there anymore. This is definitely a wake-up time. If you are particularly sensitive these days perhaps a step into the background will help keep you balanced and out of the turmoil. Please bite your tongue to keep from saying something that will set off an uproar. If you like heated discussions it now is your time.
Uranus in Aries goes direct on December 17 adding to the rumbling unexpectedly. There is lots of shaking going on to help you awake and see the truth about what is going on in the government and the world. Will you open your eyes already? This affects mostly those who have Sun and Moon and planets at 8-12 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. You might call it a lightning punch or electric shock. Speaking of Uranus the Full Moon in Gemini is right on my natal Uranus which brings with it a possible new direction if only at this moment. It tells me to entertain all possible directions. YAY! So if any of you have Moon in Gemini conjunct Uranus…pay attention for new openings. Oh, and I do see something positive for all…hey it’s time of joy. Lots of support from family and friends can take place. So forget the misery and eat some sweets. There can be good times if you just flow. Stop looking for a fight. Experience life in a new way.
Remember that Venus goes retrograde on the Solstice, December 21/22 in Capricorn 28+degrees. When Venus is retrograde you may find yourself leaving a relationship or being indecisive or making an impulsive decision. Which do you choose? And to top it off, when it goes direct you may find yourself wishing you had just done nothing because it may have to be redone. And it may affect the money in your life. Oi vey! Those affected most are January 17 birthdates and when Venus goes direct and will be at 13 degrees so around the January 2 natal day is affected more than others.
The Full Moon in Gemini highlights the Crown chakra; whereas the Sun in Sagittarius speaks of the Root Chakra of the galaxy. The Galactic Center is conjunct the Sun. Any planet that is conjunct the GC will be more sensitive to energy.
I pulled the Rabbit card for a meditation. It is about opportunities which come about for brief moments. Work with this for a few days and see what happens. Rabbit Invocation for Opportunity- “Rabbit spirit please come to me. You help me discover opportunity. You are sensitive to your surroundings. Teach me to be more intuitive and awake. To think quickly, in the blink of an eye; To survive because I am observant. I will know what is real and what is fake.”(Animal Powers ) Major changes are coming for all of you. Allow the opportunities to present themselves without talking yourself out of them.
For those who celebrate have a joyous Christmas. For everyone else have a peaceful season filled with harmony. Keep your eyes and ears open. Many blessings to you. Thank you for all you do. Love, Jan
