Accept the Validity of Your Anger & Desires
This week’s headline items: The Balsamic Moon phase begins on Monday late evening; Jupiter re-enters Aries late Tuesday late morning; Wednesday late afternoon, the Sun changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere; on Thursday, Neptune’s station ends, and Mercury starts to slow down, beginning its Station phase as it prepares to come to a halt and go retrograde next week; on Friday early morning, Chiron comes to a halt (ending its 5-month Retrograde phase), and a SuperMoon and New Moon in Capricorn becomes exact.
There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Tuesday late evening (for 4.5 hours); Thursday afternoon (for 11.5 hours), and Saturday late evening (for 4 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, December 19th:
Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio all day; it will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.
The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. It does so through subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. This makes it an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits, or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.
Monday late morning, a challenging Venus/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 11:23am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Friday night on; it will remain strong until Wednesday evening (Dec. 21st). This aspect asks us to stretch past injuries and insecurities in our relationships, self-worth, and finances. If we can bring compassion and a different point of view to these issues, we will reach a new understanding of ourselves and our life journey.
We have the opportunity to learn from one another; ironically, social insecurities can be magnified at this time. Whenever Chiron is involved, we are asked to do some healing work. As best as you can, use this time to learn about your sore spots. Nobody is perfect: we all have our flaws and idiosyncrasies. It’s ok.
If you get triggered by someone, as best as you can, take it as an opportunity to see where this trigger originated — probably in your childhood. Bring love and compassion to yourself as you are, and as you were. Allow any feelings this may stir up in you. A feeling is just energy that wants to be experienced; it wants to move through us and out.
The more we resist or suppress our feelings, the more we keep them spinning in place. As best as you can, move from the head to the heart. What might change, if you had 5% more compassion with yourself and others? What if you just decided to have faith in the healing process?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 9-15 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus or Libra (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra).
Monday afternoon, a somewhat challenging Venus/Mars aspect becomes exact at 12:37pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday afternoon (Dec. 18th); it will remain strong until Tuesday afternoon. We feel uneasy about something, sort of awkward; we need to make a choice. We need to develop inner awareness, so we can make adjustments.
This might concern compromising with others. Our enthusiasm might make us impatient or hasty with others. Our values may not be in alignment with those we engage with. As best as you can, keep choosing the “better” alternative, adjusting as needed.
When life slows down, or becomes uncomfortable, simplify and be patient. We are changing and growing in ways that we can’t comprehend right now. Stay as open and observant as you can. Ask yourself: How mature and realistic could I allow myself to be?
This combo could also be related to a mental crisis, so as best as you can, take extra care of your mental well-being and focus on long-term goals that support your “mind-body” well-being.
Do you have your Ascendent, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 11-13 degrees of Capricorn or Gemini? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra, or Aries (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Mars of Aries).
Monday early evening, an opportune Mars/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 5:39pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week, Tuesday evening (Dec. 13th) on; it will remain strong until next week Tuesday (Dec. 27th) — an unusually long time due to Chiron’s Station phase. This is an opportunity to accept the validity of our anger and desires, so we can learn to express these energies naturally and confidently.
This could also inspire us to make resolutions and take action toward healing our physical, sexual, and spiritual wounds. As best as you can, allow yourself and others to be human while on your path to wholeness and a larger, more purposeful life. Remember: this is an “opportunity” — those aren’t necessarily handed to us; we have to make them happen.
Ask yourself: Could I allow myself and others to be human? What if I took a curious approach toward my flaws, quirks, and insecurities? How might this support my healing process? Someone else’s?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-14 degrees of Gemini, Aries, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aries (Mars rules Aries).
Monday late evening, around 9:30pm EST, the Balsamic Moon phase begins when the Moon reaches 13° of Scorpio. This lasts until Friday early morning when the New Moon in Capricorn becomes exact (more on that later this week… however, feel free to already watch my New Moon video here)
We are being asked to slow down and get quiet, so we can listen to our inner sensing/intuition. For some of us, this might be a stretch; as best as you can: stay grounded, take a deep breath, and exhale any tension. Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing existing projects or processes.
This is also a great time for letting go of whatever no longer serves us. What if you could hear the voice of your inner wisdom? What might it be saying?
