We are in the dark of the Moon this week, so just take it easy and rest. The Moon is waning until next Monday, December 14th, when we have a New Moon Solar eclipse at 23 Sagittarius.
We are in between eclipses – between the lunar eclipse in Gemini on Nov. 30th, and the upcoming solar eclipse next Monday. We are in touch with our subconscious and what we need on a deep level, as well as wrestling with what we believe. Since the Moon is balsamic or waning this week, it’s a time of “wrapping things up” and endings… which includes the end of this volatile year 2020.
We’ve all been forced to reevaluate our lives this year in the face of the massive societal changes brought about by the pandemic. The world has been restructured, along with our identities. Society has been torn down, old systems have been ripped out, and we are letting go of old, toxic, moldy, dead energies. Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter have influenced this upheaval by going through various conjunctions in the sign of the “boardroom” – Capricorn. We are releasing the “traditional”, the established and the conventional for a future that (hopefully) benefits everyone.
This month, we’re coming up to the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn on December 21st. On the same day, there’s a paradigm shift when Jupiter and Saturn have an exact conjunction at 0 Aquarius. This happens every 20 years and it’s a big deal. It’s in Aquarius too – which sets our path on a lighter, airier trajectory. We will turn a corner for the better at the end of December, and wave goodbye to the trauma and heartbreak of this year. In 2021 we begin to rebuild ourselves up in a new way.
While Jupiter can indicate success, justice, and expansion, in essence Jupiter amplifies. Here Jupiter amplifies Saturn, which deals with limits, regulations, and control issues. What’s the best use of this conjunction? Get organized, because discipline and responsibility will be a strong influence. Let go of bad habits and cultivate good ones.
Monday, December 7th: Moon in Virgo wants us to start a new diet and exercise routine; perhaps rearrange the house so it’s more efficient. But with Mercury currently in Sagittarius, we might want to read all day instead.
Tuesday, December 8th: Moon into Libra at 4pm Pacific brings a taste of romance to our day. If you need to talk to your boss, or hammer out agreements, today and tomorrow are PERFECT for it.
Wednesday, December 9th: Moon in Libra. Sociability, communication and fairness. If something in your life feels out of balance, you can correct it now.
Thursday, December 10th: Moon in Libra all day, then into Scorpio at 6pm Pacific. The mood of the day could be heavy, and people might be focused on their own trajectories, so you focus on your path.
Friday, December 11th: Moon in Scorpio (informed by Mars in Aries). Do Magick! Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people. Sexy date night if you can meet in person.
Saturday, December 12th: Moon in Scorpio, then into Sagittarius at 6:39pm Pacific. Have outside adventures today! Put energy towards your goals.
Sunday, December 13th: We are in the orb of the New Moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, tomorrow morning (Monday) at 8:17am. Prepare for a new beginning.
