2015 Solstice and Christmas Full Moon in Cancer

December 17, 2015 § 5 Comments

AngelWinter Solstice

December 21, 2015 at 8:49 pm PT is Winter Solstice, the longest night in the northern hemisphere. The Sun enters Earth sign Capricorn, and many planets are in Earth signs to get grounded by focusing on earthly matters such as health and finances.

There is much good fortune as the Moon in Taurus makes a grand trine with Mercury, Jupiter, and Pluto. People are in touch with their emotions and can express what they feel, there is a pleasant sense of well being and generosity, and encounters with others are powerful.

The Taurean Moon also sextiles Neptune in Pisces for creative reflection. But Mercury squares Mars and Uranus so be thorough when communicating. You can defend your beliefs and stay true to your values, no mater how different or eclectic they may be.

Christmas Full Moon in Cancer

December 25 at 3:11 am PT is a full Moon in Cancer. Cancer is a nurturing Water sign that rules the 4th house of family, home, and roots. It is very fortunate that the Cancer full Moon occurs on Christmas day, making this a very special time for family and friends. The full Moon trines Neptune in Pisces for inspiration, plus empathy and intuition are heightened.

Mercury in Capricorn trines Jupiter in Virgo that sharpens the mind for lively conversations and new perception. Venus in Scorpio sextiles Jupiter to be at peace with the world, and relationships bring out your best qualities. Planet of change Uranus is no longer retrograde today so there can be more stability.

December 26 begins Kwanzaa when the Moon, still in Cancer, trines Venus in Scorpio for enjoyment of food and drink, and brings very good fortune in relationships. Cancer full Moon luck is strongest for the Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Sheep, Pig, and Rabbit years.

2015 SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON begins RAT MONTH

December 9, 2015 § Leave a comment

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON

December 11, 2015 at 2:29 am PT is a new Moon in Sagittarius. Lively Fire sign Sagittarius adds to the light, festive feel this holiday season. The Sun and new Moon sextile Mars, excellent for getting things done. There is a sense of vitality as Mars brings new energy and vivaciousness. People work well together because Mars is in mellow relationship sign Libra. People are in touch with both intellect and emotions.

The Sun and new Moon square Jupiter. But Jupiter squares are lucky because any connection to Jupiter is fortunate. You can see the big picture and get ahead, if that is your goal this month. People feel more spiritual and inspired. They are more benevolent and generous.

But Mars is opposite Uranus, and squares Pluto, that brings two sides. People can be irritable, wanting to escape old duties and responsibilities. The power of Pluto could engage others in a power struggle. Fortunately, the Sun and new Moon tine Uranus in fellow Fire sign Aries. These lucky trines are optimal for engaging in new activities, and making discoveries this month.

 

EARTH RAT MONTH

This new Moon begins the month of the Earth Rat. Celebratory holiday cheer continues throughout this social Rat month, especially during the tail of this Sheep year. A Rat lunar cycle is a good time to plan, think, and organize. The element Earth concerns practical matters such as finances, health, and career. Engaging new Moon opportunities are strongest for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Rat, Dragon, and Monkey years.
