Full Moon in Cancer — the article

On Jan. 6th, at 6:08pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in almost 16.5 degrees of CancerThe entrance of the Moon into Cancer on Jan. 5th begins the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon.

Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this Full Moon, there is a particularly strong emphasis on family- and business relationships. If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to also watch my Full Moon video.

Lots of planets are involved in this Full Moon chart — Mercury and Mars are both Retrograde, although Mars is also exalted, as it will come to a halt only 6 days after the Full Moon becomes exact, ending its 2.5 months Retrograde phase that began on Oct. 30th!

Uranus will become more exalted two days after the Full Moon becomes exact, preparing to end its 5-month Retrograde phase (on Jan. 22nd). However, at the time of the Full Moon, Uranus will support the integration of the Full Moon polarity because it is sextiling the Moon in Cancer and trining the Mercury-Sun alignment in Capricorn.

The Moon in Cancer supports the integration of the Moon Nodes in Taurus-Scorpio, and trines Neptune in Pisces. And Mars in Gemini trines Venus in Aquarius! Yay! Lots of harmonious aspects.

The most challenging aspect in this Full Moon chart is a T-Square — with Chiron in Aries as the Focal Point… making Libra the Solution of this T-Square. All of the above-mentioned play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a moment.

But first, let’s talk about this month’s Full Moon: This Lunation shows us how well we are doing with self-care and any issues connected to family or home — and also where we are in connection to greater emotional responsibility and self-alignment.

Ask yourself: What’s my relationship to self-care and where do I feel most “at home”? What’s my understanding of my emotional needs? How might an emotional connection to myself and loved ones be of benefit to me? How might it shift my priorities?

Let’s take a look at the polarities involved with this Full Moon

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-19 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer  (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Again, in our FIRST Forecasting Forum of the year on Friday, Jan. 6th at 5pm EST, we’ll be taking a look at all the planetary and Nodal changes of 2023!

For example, we will investigate what shifts Saturn in Pisces will bring over the next 2.5 years, and what Pluto in Aquarius will show us from late March – mid June, as it gives us a preview of what’s to come in 2024 and beyond. How will the Moon’s Nodal shift in July into Aries-Libra impact our collective Soul’s Journey, not to mention Pluto’s involvement in that collective journey…

Communicate Responsibly & On An Equal Footing

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury’s Station phase intensifies on Tuesday and ends on Sunday; it’s time to take action on our New Moon intentions from Tuesday early afternoon on; the third US Pluto Return of the year becomes exact on Wednesday; Mercury comes to a halt and starts its 3-week Retrograde phase in Capricorn, on Thursday early morning; the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Thursday evening; and Mars starts to slow down again (stationing) on Sunday.

 

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday early afternoon (for a little over 13 hours); Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning (for a little over 4 hours), and Saturday morning (for almost 4.5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s Forecast, a gentle reminder…

If you want to stay on the pulse of all the planetary shifts for this coming year and see how an understanding of these energies can serve you personally, join me on a monthly basis in 2023!

I am offering an additional $36.00 discount for the YEARLY STAR Membership until Jan. 6th!

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, December 26th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning (Dec. 27th). The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal. We are likely to have an increased fascination with the new and unusual.

Social gatherings, anything connected with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas and methods, and progress are promoted while the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday very early morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need to connect with like-minded people while remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to make space for pursuing our financial vision — and we also want to break free from outdated value systems.

As such, we may have to address what we value, both in others and in ourselves (this in turn, informs our self-worth); as far as possible, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies. (the Moon in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus, exact at 2:35am EST

Monday afternoon, at 1:19pm EST, we enter a Moon VoC that will last a little over 13 hours, until 2:34am EST (Tuesday every early morning). Use this intuitive time to focus on a long-term vision for your communities that involves a mature and realistic approach. As best as you can, take your time, and do your best to come from a place of integrity.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday early afternoon until Tuesday very early morning ahead of time.

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).

 

Before we get to this week’s Forecast, I would like to…

…wish you all a wonderful Holiday season and Winter Solstice! It’s been such a treat to reconnect with so many of you over the last several weeks.

If anyone is interested in connecting with me over the holidays, I will be available for Readings and Coaching sessions. If I don’t talk to you during the holidays, may you find peace and inner joy in the coming week!

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?

Super New Moon in Capricorn — the article

On Dec. 23rd, at 5:17am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 1.5 degrees of Capricorn, launching a new Moon cycle.

There are three quick things I would like to mention before we get started:

Now, let’s talk about the New Moon:

New Moons are good times to reflect on our lives and set new intentions. This is an excellent time to go within and plant a seed for anything we would like to accomplish over the next 28 days and beyond.

Given it takes place less than 48 hours after the Winter Solstice, this New Moon is a significant time to set Intentions, not just for the next 28 days but also for this Winter season. This is because the Solstices are important turning points that take place twice a year: They are energetic gateways for the summer or winter season.

This New Moon is also a SuperMoon. These occur when the Moon becomes either Full or New at its closest distance to the Earth and are more powerful. They generate greater gravitational and electromagnetic forces and therefore increased effects on our physical, mental, and emotional bodies, leading to significant shifts in consciousness.

Since it occurs in Capricorn, this Super New Moon directs us to investigate our relationship with authority, not just “authority” in the external sense, but also our “inner authority”. The next section of this forecast will dig into this in more detail — you may also want to watch my New Moon video 🙂

The most prominent themes of this Super New Moon are:

  • Chiron (the wounded Healer) stations direct less than an hour before the New Moon becomes exact, therefore highly exalted! And making several aspects to other planets in this New Moon chart, bringing our attention to our healing processes.
  • The New Moon makes a Square to Jupiter, which moves back into Aries on Dec. 20th, asking us to stretch and grow.
  • Mercury is also exalted in this New Moon chart (in its pre-Shadow phase and stationing) and making several noteworthy aspects, bringing our attention to being responsible and realistic with our words and thoughts. Practicing effective, authentic, mature, and empowering communication is helpful.
  • And last but not least, there is a Venus-Uranus Trine that brings newness into our relationships — and possibly also into our financial future.

The highest vibration of Capricorn is self-mastery: the development of responsibility, resourcefulness, reliability, setting realistic goals and healthy boundaries. So the next 28 days are perfect for working on these areas.

This is the last New Moon of 2022, and since Capricorn represents the quest for self-mastery on the physical plane, some helpful questions you can ask yourself include…

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 0-4 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra, or 29 degrees of  Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you may feel the effects of this New Moon more strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

The New Moon is also the best time to set some powerful intentions for the month’s Moon cycle — the perfect time is after the New Moon becomes exact (but not during a Moon void of course).

So this month, there are two best and most potent times to set intentions — the first would be any time between 5:17am on Friday, Dec. 23rd, and 10:11pm on Saturday late evening, Dec. 24th — and the second would be between 2:14am and 5:17am on Sunday morning (Dec. 25th) (EST/New York time).

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast time), and converting time zones isn’t your thing, I suggest joining my Facebook Fan-page and following me on Twitter, as I post reminders when it’s time to set your intentions 😉

Sometimes Things Line Up

 

This week’s headline items: Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase on Monday; the last Quarter Moon in Virgo becomes exact on Friday very early morning; Chiron’s Station intensifies on Saturday.

There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Tuesday late morning (for almost 17 hours); Friday afternoon (for 36 minutes), and Sunday early afternoon (for 5 hours).

 

Before we get to this week’s Forecast, here are two reminders:

  • My webinar, “Chiron’s Station Direct in Aries & the Mercury pre-Shadow phase in Capricorn, is now available for purchase on my webinar-page
  • I also recorded a webinar on “The Wounded Masculine: Chiron in Aries – A Holistic Approach to How We Show Up in the World”.

    One of the participants said right after the live event: “This is the best presentation I have ever seen on Chiron”.


    Another Astrologer said: “I have not yet used Chiron in my Readings with my clients, but now I will”.

    This webinar was part of a 12- lecture conference ==> Click here for more info and to watch a trailer. This collection of Astrology webinars comes to less than $13 per lecture with the Package deal!

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, December 12th:

Monday, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day; it will journey there until Wednesday very early morning. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness.

So, hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, and tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games, and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s easier for the next two-and-a-half days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun that you let out a tiny squeak just thinking of it?

Monday early afternoon, an opportune Sun/Saturn aspect becomes exact at 1:12pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build last Friday evening (Dec. 9th); it will remain strong until Wednesday evening. This aspect provides an opportunity to become aware of what needs to happen if we are to accomplish something concrete.

We have common sense at our disposal; we are willing to look reality in the eye and take responsibility for our lives and how we live. This is an opportunity to become more aware of the bigger picture and our perspectives on society and our various networks or affiliations — and also how a larger view could benefit us, both in terms of our long-term visions within the collective and for our own individual journey of growth and expanded horizons.

Remember: opportunities are openings; they aren’t necessarily handed to us — we have to “take” them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 18-24 degrees of Sagittarius, AquariusLibra, or Aries? If so, you may be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Capricorn (the Sun rules Leo; Saturn rules Capricorn).

Also on Monday, Mercury enters its pre-Shadow phase when it reaches 8°9’ of Capricorn; this is 2.5 weeks prior to its Retrograde phase (which starts on Dec. 29th at 24º21′ of Capricorn)

What is the Shadow phase? The period immediately before and after a planet’s Retrograde phase is referred to as the “Shadow phase”; at these times, the planet travels again through the degrees of a sign (or signs) it had already passed through before and during its Retrograde phase. Mercury is usually in its shadow for about two to three weeks before a retrograde and three to four weeks after.

If you want to buy, sell or ship big-ticket items — especially connected to transportation (cars, airline tickets, etc.) or communication devices (phone, computer, iPad, etc.) — be aware of the Shadow periods as well as the Retrograde phases. If possible, get these things done before Mercury enters its pre-Shadow or wait until after the post-Shadow phase is over — post-Shadow phase will end on Feb. 7th (in this case).

Of course, if there is something that must get done during these phases, don’t put your whole life on hold, just because Mercury is Retrograde or in its Shadow. Sometimes things line up exactly at the right time; as best as you can, trust that it’s all “perfect”

Get a better idea of how to make good use of the Mercury pre-Shadow phase, so you can have a better experience during the upcoming Mercury Retrograde phase, by watching our latest webinar about the “Mercury’s pre-Shadow phase in Capricorn & Chiron’s Station Direct” ==> Click here for more info.

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, December 5th:

The Moon remains in peaceful, steady Taurus all day; it will journey there until Tuesday late afternoon. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing, and “rushing things” goes against our grain.

What is our favorite thing today and tomorrow? It’s probably slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Monday morning, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: we may want to have some peace and quiet, while, at the same time, feeling the desire to explore life and maybe even have an outdoor adventure. (Moon in Taurus quincunxes the Sun in Sagittarius, exact at 7:50am EST) 

Monday early afternoon, we are asked to connect with people with similar values who can provide practical support for our visions, and to share with them what is important to us (Moon conjuncts Uranus in Taurus, exact at 12:38pm EST) 

Monday evening, we are being asked to make some creative choices — on the one hand, we need to make room for peace and physical pleasure; on the other, we need to focus on our visions for the future and see what’s realistic for us and humanity. We may need to make some adjustments between these two seemingly irreconcilable needs. (Moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, exact at 8:54pm EST)

Full Moon in Gemini – the article

On Dec. 7th, at 11:08pm EST, the Full Moon becomes exact, in 16 degrees of Gemini; the entrance of the Moon into Gemini on Dec. 6th in the afternoon starts the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon.

The Moon in chatty, versatile Gemini, opposes the Sun in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. If you are already a Member of my online community, you can watch my Full Moon video for more details. 

Let’s start by looking at the highlights of this Full Moon:

  • The Moon makes an exact alignment to retrograde Mars in Gemini, which asks us to take action on something that we have been meaning to take care of for a while.
  • The Sun in Sagittarius quincunxes Uranus in Taurus, which invites us to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
  • Neptune in Pisces (our primary connection to universal love and our intuitive knowing) is still exalted until Dec. 22nd, making this planet’s energy a vital part of this Full Moon chart; it widely squares the Full Moon polarity in Gemini-Sagittarius, as well as Mars. 
  • Mercury, the planet of communication or also known as the messenger (also the ruler of Gemini), aligns with Venus, the planet of love and beauty, and they both squares Jupiter, the planet of expansion and generosity (also the ruler of Sagittarius)

There are several other important aspects in this Full Moon chart, and I will go into all of them in detail in a moment — but first…

Full Moons illuminate the higher/lighter vibration and the denser Shadow side of each sign. As our collective consciousness continues to awaken, what’s been in the shadows comes to the forefront more and more, so we can see it more clearly and deal with it on a conscious level.

This ultimately creates a more conscious society that can make more empowering choices for the future. However, it is essential to remember that this is a process and takes time to get to a place where we can see a clear shift on a collective level.

Let’s take a look at the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 14-18 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, or Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer)

Again, we will address Chiron’s loud energy due to its Station Direct phase in our next Forum — feel free to join us live on Dec. 10th at 11:30am EST for the last Forecasting Forum of the year! Once registered, an mp4-video recording of the live event will be available to everyone, whether you joined live or not!

This webinar will help you understand better how this planetary shift will impact you personally and what your healing journey entails. Questions are always welcome, either via email in advance or during the Forum (I will address questions in the order that I have received them).
