The Moon has entered her 4th quarter, so this week we are in the darkest phase of the monthly moon cycle. The New Moon in Capricorn is on Sunday morning. What does this mean? YOU get to REST this week. Take some time to reflect on how you’d like the upcoming Moon cycle to go. If you need a personal reading on how this Capricorn cycle will effect you, you can book a short reading with me here for $45.
This week we are letting go, wrapping stuff up, paying off debts, and clearing our lives of stagnant energy. This is particularly important now, because the Year of the Tiger starts on February 1st, 2022, and the Tiger brings drama. You will want to have your life sorted out as much as possible by then. More on that later.
For now, the Sun has left the fires of Sagittarius, and is traveling through the early degrees of Capricorn, the sea goat. This sign forces us to strengthen the foundation of our lives so we can survive the harsh Winter. Capricorn is also harsh. The goat demands we face reality, and do the hard work necessary to move ahead. There’s no short cuts and you can’t pay your big brother to do it for you. YOU have do the work and apply yourself; then you can walk easily over the impossible terrain of the wild goat.
Monday, December 27th: Moon in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius in the pre dawn hours, but there are no other aspects. We’re still in the middle of huge energy shifts from this weekend – particularly the Venus-Pluto conjunction, and the square between Saturn and Uranus last Friday. Today’s Moon in Libra seeks balance, so balance is the best thing to focus on today. Walk the middle road between work and play, family and individuality, and love and independence.
Tuesday, December 28th: Moon in Libra squares Mercury, Venus and Pluto in the early morning, then enters Scorpio at 1:16pm Pacific. There could be real tests for relationships and partnerships today, but Moon in Libra is great for reaching agreements. Try to hammer things out with people in the morning. Major sextile between Mars and Uranus in the afternoon can bring unexpected developments, and the Moon in Scorpio accentuates power plays, so stay present. Happy news? JUPITER enters PISCES in the evening YAY!!!!
Wednesday, December 29th: Moon in Scorpio makes us witchy. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning, which brings an agreeable vibe to the day. Jupiter newly in Pisces is a wonderful energy which brings optimism and joy to all of us, but particularly Sagittarians. Mars sextiles Saturn in the evening, and we can make good progress by working hard.
Thursday, December 30th: Moon void-of-course in Scorpio all day, entering Sagittarius at 3:08pm Pacific. Mercury and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn in the early morning brings further information about yesterday’s developments. This is a huge aspect. Moon in Scorpio sextiles Venus, Pluto and Mercury in the morning, bringing positive energies to the big evolution impacting relationships nowadays. Expect occult experiences and deep conversations with people.
Friday, December 31st: Moon in Sagittarius on New Year’s Eve is a PARTY! I’m sure you’ll will have fun tonight. The mood is expansive and the vibe is optimistic. This Moon brings out the truth and adjusts our life perspective. Sagittarius is a wild, liberated, adventurous sign with high ideals. The Centaur wants us to look at our goals, because it’s the sign of the Archer! New Year’s Eve is a great night to decide on your goals for the upcoming year.
Saturday, January 1st: New Year’s Day. Moon void-of-course in Sagittarius all day, entering Capricorn at 3:02pm Pacific. Mercury goes into Capricorn in the middle of the night, followed by a New Moon in Capricorn tomorrow. The conditions are fantastic for making resolutions and committments today. Moon in Capricorn, on a Saturday, is GREAT for saturnian Magick, i.e. discipline, structure and committment. Saturn represents our stability, and brings up themes of structure, time, karma, and authority.
Sunday, January 2nd: New Moon in Capricorn at 10:33am takes us to the bottom of this year’s energy. From Capricorn, we build up our lives and our year from a new foundation. Where are you right now? Where do you want to be? The sea goat can help you connect the present to the future using practicality and hard work. Remember, the mountain goat can step carefully through seemingly impossible terrain, so remain undaunted by obstacles and forge ahead!
