December 30th – January 5th

Happy New Decade! — Forecast for Dec. 30th – Jan. 5th

 

This week’s headline items: Uranus starts to slow down (station) on Monday, getting ready to end it’s 5-month Retrograde phase; the first Quarter Moon in Aries becomes exact on Thursday late evening, and Mars changes signs from Scorpio to Sagittarius on Friday early morning. We are still in Eclipse Season (and will be until Jan. 24th).

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday early morning (for a little over 5 hours), Wednesday late evening (almost 2 hours) and Friday evening (15 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, let me mention this one last time:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 30th:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius. It will journey there, until 10:41am EST. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional; interactions 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, progress: all these are promoted during the time the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or on outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday at 5:24am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 5 hours until 10:41am EST. We are experiencing two quite different needs, pulling us in different directions: On the one hand, we feel a strong need to break the rules and move towards our future visions.

On the other hand, we want to connect to what feels familiar and comfortable. Do your best to use this intuitive time to make adjustments, slow things down a little, and find creative solutions that honor both drives. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning ahead of time.

Monday at 10:41am EST, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. This Moon placement often finds us more sensitive, intuitive, idealistic and imaginative than normal. We also have a greater capacity for compassion, sympathy and affection for all — but especially for those who suffer or can be regarded as the underdog.

But… that very idealism could also be our downfall at this time: We tend to see the best in everyone and everything, and when reality doesn’t match our idyllic vision, we might feel upset and even victimized by those harsh realities. A way out of this is to channel our idealism into spiritual or creative endeavors.

It’s also a great time for releasing fears — especially the ones based on a sense of separation — and experiencing “oneness”. Feelings tend to flow more freely; as best as you can, let them — in fact, “going with the flow” is the best way to go for the next couple of days.

Monday late afternoon, a harmonious Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 5:22pm EST. We started to feel this aspect  build from last week, Saturday evening (Dec. 28th) on; it will remain strong until this Wednesday evening (Jan. 1st). This aspect supports a connection between our higher mind and our day-to-day mind. We are able to receive inspiration from higher places and maybe even look into the future.

We are able to communicate our vision for a better future; insights arise from these communications. Original, creative insights and ideas can appear out of nowhere; as best as you can, stay open to these unique “downloads” — they might change how you see and proceed with life 😉

This is a good time to communicate online, engage in computer-related activities or scientific projects, and also for anything metaphysical. Group activities like Meetups are great things to be involved with right now — especially if they allow us to share our vision for a better financial future.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-6 degree of Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo? If so, you will feel especially blessed by this connection. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Aquarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius)

Tuesday, Dec. 31st:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces all day (see Monday late morning for details).

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, Uranus starts to slow down (station). It will come to a halt in 2.5º of Taurus (on Jan. 10th — ending its 5-month Retrograde phase). Uranus will move more slowly for almost four weeks between now and Jan. 23rd, anything connected to its energy will come into our awareness quite strongly: We have to face what this planet is trying to communicate to us.

Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional values, moving towards a new future, a future that serves others as well as ourselves. Keyword: Freedom. We might have flashes of insight or new ideas about what needs to change in our lives. Definitely expect the unexpected.

Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet, so don’t be surprised if you experience some interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are also ruled by Uranus, so these will also be more at the forefront of our awareness. As best as you can, stay open and flexible, go with the flow — and pay attention to those messages from the Universe 😉

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is “in your face” for the next 3.5 weeks. Our intuitions will be very strong during this time and we have access to sudden insights and ideas. This gives us the opportunity to take a look to see how free we actually feel.

What might this be for you? Where do you feel the desire to break free? If “Freedom” were an important value for you, how might it show up in your life? Where have you denied yourself permission to be free? Unique? Simply yourself?

With this much erratic energy moving through us, we are best off honoring this movement, and “shaking it out”. Rather than expecting everyone’s values to be the same, it will serve us now to focus on aligning our own unique visions and desires with certain partnerships, creating deeper, more trusting connections wherever we can.

This also provides an opportunity to look at how free we truly feel within our financial partnerships and intimate relationships. Are you expressing your individuality to the fullest in those partnerships? Are you connecting to a larger vision? Is anything holding you back? What did you discover about your unique visions, values, and financial freedoms these past 5 months?

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Aquarius? Or do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-5 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo? If so, you are more affected by this station.

Tuesday late afternoon, we get an opportunity to be wholly present; also to bring a greater awareness to our current relationship to self-mastery. This is a great time to be looking for practical advice around our long-term goals. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings, and allow yourself to take it one step at a time.

Tuesday evening, we feel more sensitive and need to slow down a little. This is a great time for spiritual or creative endeavors. Energy work, or anything that requires our intuitive side, will work best for the next several hours.

Since this is also the last day of 2019 (and also of the decade), I would like to invite you to prepare for the coming year! Get ready for 2020! Enjoy this 15.min. teaser from our “All of 2020!” Forum — Click here to watch the Teaser

Wednesday, Jan. 1st:

On Wednesday, the Moon remains in creative, sensitive Pisces, until 11:00pm EST (see Monday late morning for details). We are entering 2020 with compassion in our hearts and a connection to the energy field all around us. As best as you can, visualize a future that you would like to step into — visualize a decade aligned with your dreams — and do your best to align those dreams for the highest and best interest of everyone involved.

Wednesday morning, we get an opportunity to be very present — and also to focus on practicalities and long-term plans. As best as you can, bring a sense of flow and faith to your business dealings.

Also, Wednesday morning, we have the opportunity to be guided by inspiration, and fully commit to a project or task that might serve us long-term. As best as you can, listen and trust to the subtle messages in your heart, that stir you towards success.

Wednesday late evening, at 9:14pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 2 hours until 11pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with others (and yourself) with gentleness and compassion. Taking actions on deeply transformative and spiritual endeavors are favored right now.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Wednesday late evening ahead of time.

Wednesday at 11:00pm EST, the Moon movies into pioneering, fast-paced Aries, where it will journey until Saturday late morning. Life is an adventure, we’re more open to new ideas, and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly, and act immediately.

Our independence and dynamism are important to us right now, so we may find it hard to be disciplined or accept advice at this time; in general, our responses to others tend to be more assertive or even aggressive. If you find your foot tapping, try hitting the gym, or finding other ways to burn off the body’s excess energy. This Moon Placement starts the build up to the first Quarter Moon (exact Thursday late evening).

Thursday, Jan. 2nd:

Thursday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Thursday very early morning, has lots of potential for healing around family, the “mother archetype”, home, and our past in general. We may feel more sensitive and insecure about what we identity with, and around our ability to be assertive; this gives us the opportunity to give ourselves some compassion, acceptance and nurturing in the face of our sensitivities and limitations.

Thursday late morning, a Mercury/Jupiter alignment in almost 7 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 11:42am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Tuesday morning on, it will be strong until Saturday evening. This alignment brings optimism and a tendency to talk and think more; it favors planning and prioritizing business goals, submitting applications and forms, and test taking.

We can more readily exercise good judgment, take a more philosophical approach to thinking, and find it easier to bring wholeness and order into our business dealings. There is a sense of mental expansion; we see our long-term goals as a place of adventure and personal growth.

We are optimistic and enthusiastic — and things tend to go well as a result — it’s all about thinking big and planning it out. What if expanding our conception of authority, society in general, and government contribution helped us be more peaceful and calm? What if that helped us manifest our desires?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 4-10 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, so those folks will always be affected more strongly by Mercury’s movements and aspects; Jupiter rules Sagittarius) 

Thursday late evening, the first Quarter Moon in a little over 12 degrees of Aries becomes exact. We started to feel this aspect build from the moment the Moon entered Aries Wednesday late evening. The Moon in pioneering, enthusiastic, fast-paced Aries makes a challenging aspect to the Sun practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn.

Last week (Dec. 26th) saw a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. If we set some intentions on Dec. 28th or 29th, we are now ready to make some adjustments. This is a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum — in fact, we may feel compelled to act, stirring up anxiety or overwhelm, so just go one breath at a time.

Remember, we’re still in Eclipse Season until Jan. 24th, and thus don’t have all the information we need to move brand-new projects forward yet. Allow for changes, remain flexible and adaptable, and find creative solutions in day-to-day interactions with others. Allow also for new downloads and for the release of “old” codes and conditioning. Simply put: an open mind and heart will serve us best (that’s true in general, but especially true until Eclipse season ends 😉

Another thing to remember: if something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic… allow it to be. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. We are receiving a consciousness upgrade — that’s a good thing!


Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 10-14 degrees of Aries, Capricorn, Libra or Cancer? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. 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)

Friday, Jan. 3rd:

Friday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries all day (see Wednesday late evening for details).

Friday early morning, at 4:37am EST, Mars changes signs from passionate Scorpio to adventurous Sagittarius, where it will journey, until Feb. 16th. With this placement, we are going to feel a little restless, maybe even impatient at times — we want to explore. This is a great time to get into sports or some athletic activity. We have so many ideas and interests that we can’t just stick to one thing right now, so we may have several projects running at the same time.

It’s a time when we prefer to improvise and just wing it. That makes it more fun and brings a sense of adventure to our day. We also like to have some good debates with others, persuading them to share our beliefs. It’s not the best time to get too serious about life, as we prefer to feel free-flowing and excited about new things — especially when we can learn something new 😉

If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising-sign, you are going to feel more adventurous and probably more impatient. You may want to explore new sports or physical activities. If you are a Sagittarius Sun-sign or Rising sign, you will feel quite energized for the next 12 weeks. Channeling this energy into physical exercise or a project might be advisable. 

Friday late morning, we have an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and move a project forward that is dear to us. It’s time for action: What small (or even large) action steps could you take? Or is it a question of “who” rather than “how”?

Friday early evening, we are invited to make some adjustments in our lives and find creative solutions to seemingly incompatible situations. On the one hand, we are invited to focus on building solid foundations under any long-term goals currently underway. Some helpful questions you could ask yourself: What benefits might I reap from taking it one step at a time?

On the other hand, we have this need to make time for personal desires and needs; here, you could ask yourself: What does my inner teenager require to be happy at this time?

Friday at 8:18pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 15 hours until 11:15am EST (Saturday late morning). Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments and find creative ways to work with the energies at play: On the one hand, as best as you can, follow your inner compass and take care of your own needs; on the other hand, deepen your authentic connection to whatever you are building long-term.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Friday evening until Saturday late morning ahead of time.

Saturday, Jan. 4th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries and VoC until 11:15am EST; at that time, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until next week, Monday late evening (Jan. 6th).

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 for the next two days? It’s probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Saturday early afternoon, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: We may want to have some peace and quiet, while at the same time, wanting to connect with others and have an outdoors adventure.

Saturday late afternoon, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on.

Sunday, Jan. 5th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day (see Saturday late morning for details).

On Sunday very early morning, it is best to slow down a little and explore what’s sitting right in front of us that needs to be taken care of, so we can gain a new perspective around our goals and accomplishments; expanding too fast will backfire right now.

Sunday late morning, is a great time to share about earthly issues and support each other in practical ways.

Sunday late afternoon, a harmonious Mars/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 4:53pm EST. We started feeling this aspect build from Tuesday evening on; it will be strong until next week, Friday. This gives us a chance to learn to accept our desire and anger as valid — so that when we express them, we do so naturally and confidently, without harming ourselves or others — simply allowing ourselves to feel anger and talk about it, just as we would about joy.

Ask yourself: What if I brought understanding and compassion to anger or assertiveness? What if my desires were valid? We may also find that a humorous or courageous approach can carry us through feelings of insecurity or shame. We’d like to go beyond what we already know to gain new perspectives, learn about a greater vision of the masculine nature, or simply bring healing where we believe it’s needed.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-5 degrees of Sagittarius, Aries, Leo or 28-29 degrees of Scorpio, Pisces, or Cancer? If so, you will be most blessed by this aspect. Or perhaps your Ascendant or Sun-sign is in Aries? If so, you are especially blessed by this aspect.

Sunday evening, we have an opportunity to meet our need for material comfort with a gentler, more intuitive approach. Inner and outer beauty is key!

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Jan. 6th): the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus until 9:11pm EST (see Saturday late morning for details). At 7:08am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 14 hours until 9:11pm EST; at that time, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning (Jan. 9th). Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, an opportune Sun/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 1:21am EST; we start to feel this aspect build from Jan. 4th on; it will be strong until Jan. 8th. Lastly, Uranus’ Station intensifies until Jan. 14th. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

The Pursuit of Self-Mastery — Forecast for Dec. 23rd – 29th

 

This week’s headline items: The Chiron Station ends on Tuesday, a powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Capricorn becomes exact on Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning, on Friday night/Saturday very early morning, it’s time to start setting our Solar Eclipse Intentions, and Mercury changes signs from Sagittarius to Capricorn late on Saturday evening.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday until 11:34am EST, Wednesday morning (for almost 10.5 hours) and Friday afternoon (for a little over 8 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 23rd:

Monday, the Moon remains in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio and VoC until 11:34am EST. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities”.

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. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Monday late morning, a challenging Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 10:17am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week, Friday evening on; it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This asks us to stretch ourselves and expand from within. We might feel less confident about who we are, and have a hard time projecting a social “front”. Our conditioning and wounded sense of Self may be out of harmony with each other.

As best as you can, take this as an opportunity to make space for feeling vulnerable or emotional without seeing yourself as weak or “less than”. It is perfectly ok to be yourself and feel insecure once in a while; as best as you can, bring compassion and love to yourself and others. After all, we are all human…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in the following: 0-5 degree of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra, or 28-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, or Gemini? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Monday at 11:34am EST, the Moon moves into optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius, where it will journey until Wednesday afternoon. New experiences and adventures satisfy a deep emotional need. The Sagittarius Moon persuades us to come from intuition and think in a broader manner.

We seek meaning and ideas that expand upon the “here and now”; we pursue truth and a new vision — the big picture, rather than the details. Spontaneity is key, we’d rather improvise than plan; this may tip into just “winging it”. We could also overdo or overstate.

Monday afternoon, we might find ourselves wanting to explore a new healing modality for body, mind, and heart, aimed at a renewing our enthusiasm for life. We are capable of being compassionate and forgiving with ourselves at this time — and a gentle and holistic approach is best.

Monday late afternoon: we experience a need for inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice. Making this choice demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the desire to mentally explore and go beyond what we already know — and on the other hand, the need for breakthroughs or change connected to the physical plane.

We need to ask ourselves here: What might become possible if…

Tuesday, Dec. 24th:

Tuesday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius all day (see Monday late morning for details).

Tuesday very early morning, after 12:13am EST: we are now within 48 hours of the Eclipse. Allow for the new templates to download, stay centered, and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing, flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body…

There is some potent energy coming our way — prepare yourself to be transformed by it, by allowing for the consciousness upgrade to be installed. Feel free to also watch my video on the subject.

This is a good time to slow things down and go within. For many of us, this will be a stretch, as we want to do just the opposite: we’d rather jump the gun on something new. This is quite common right before a Solar Eclipse. As best as you can, stay grounded, take a deep breath, exhale any tensions… and connect to your inner wisdom.

It all comes down to this: just for now and just as best as you can… could you simply allow what is… simply “to be”? Could you simply hang out as the “observer” until the upgrade is complete?

Rather than starting something brand-new, put all that energy into completing things. The last Solar Eclipse was in early July 2019. Think back to that time (if you can 🙂 — what did you start around then? How could you complete it or move to the next level?

As best as you can, take the days immediately before and after the Eclipse for meditation, walks in nature, creative or spiritual endeavors — anything that supports going within and tapping into your inner divinity. Of course if, like most of us, you have other obligations, find other ways (f you possibly can) to get quiet and be with your higher Self — even if that just means “taking a breather” here and there.

Tuesday afternoon, we may need to make some adjustments. As best you can, honor both your need for adventure and exploration of life and your need to go within. You may feel a pull between introvert and extrovert, or simply fast and slow. Tune in for a moment and see if you need to take a break or at least slow down a little. As best as you can, be compassionate and kind with yourself.

Tuesday late afternoon, a harmonious Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 4:44pm EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Saturday evening (Dec. 21st) on, it will remain strong until this Friday evening . This aspect connects us to a strong energy field — physical and metaphysical. We feel alive, we want to create a better future for ourselves and others, and we are excited to do it. Watch out for messages from the Universe 🙂

Originality and innovation come easy to us, as does connection with like-minded people. We can celebrate (and leverage) our idealism and unorthodox approaches to life’s challenges. What if you expressed what’s uniquely “you” without apologies? What if you did it with authenticity and enthusiasm? And, looking at things from a different angle: What might be possible with a bigger network of like-minded people?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 0-6 degrees of  Capricorn, Taurus, or Virgo? If so, you will be more blessed by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius).

Also, Tuesday, Chiron ends its Station (in 1.5º of Aries) and gets back to its normal pace through the sky. We have a chance to implement everything we learned during the retrograde phase and move forward with healing any physical, sexual, or “identity” wounds, or insecurities and sensitivities that came up around the masculine energies.

Wednesday, Dec. 25th:

Wednesday, the Moon remains in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius until 4:45pm EST (see Monday late morning for details).

Wednesday at 6:18am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 10.5 hours until 4:45pm EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with others (and with yourself) through exploration of something exciting. Could you look at the bigger picture? Take a broader-minded approach? What if you also communicated your enthusiasm, new found perspective, or new approach?

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

Wednesday at 4:45pm EST, the Moon moves into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Friday night/Saturday very early morning. We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.

As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it is currently transiting through its own sign, making this a great time to take look at your long-term aspirations and anything that you would like to master over the next three years. It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our strategies for self-mastery.

For starters: Do you truly see “what’s so” in your life (as opposed to what you merely wish it to be, or what you would like it to be, or where you see yourself going, etc)? What is actually so right now? Once you have a handle on where “A” is, it’s easier to “go from A to B” — whether “B” is self-mastery or standing on the mountaintop.

Wednesday evening, we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. As best as you can, make space for looking into some alternative exercise programs or holistic approaches to your personal projects and current long-term commitments. Compassion is key 😉

Wednesday late evening, we are invited to connect with like-minded people, and learn something new about our unique talents or value to the world. We are better able to connect to anything that involves a long-term commitment. We perhaps might also implement revolutionary business practices or government programs that support our values and make life tangibly more enjoyable.

Thursday, Dec. 26th:

Thursday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Wednesday late afternoon for details).

Wednesday night/Thursday very early morning, at 12:13am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Capricorn, launching both a new Moon and a new Eclipse cycle. Feel free to also watch my video on the subject

Eclipse season is started on Dec. 16th, 2019 and lasts until Jan. 24th, 2020: Eclipses usually come in pairs — Solar and Lunar Eclipse — so Eclipse season starts 10 days before the first Eclipse, continues through the time of the second Eclipse (exact on Jan. 10th) and ends with the Lunar Eclipse cycle, at the time of the New Moon in Aquarius on Jan. 24th.

Between Dec. 16th and Jan. 24th, allow for the new templates to download; stay centered and do your best to ground from within — try using conscious breathing and conscious flexibility — and best of all, see if you can move to the “observer position” when it comes to the emotional and mental body… And remember: this won’t last forever — on Jan. 24th, the downloads are complete 😉

Eclipses are a time for clarifying and affirming our highest path. We are bound to experience a release of some sort — and a recalibration — “old” codes will get deleted and new ones downloaded — especially in connection with the laws of matter, earthly ambitions, contributions to society, and living in pure accordance with our conscience, from a place of maturity and inner guidance.

The Sun and Moon are connected to one of the Moon Nodes during an Eclipse, emphasizing the evolutionary upgrades that are available to us during such times.

Eclipses switch between South Node and North Node Eclipses. The last Eclipse in July was a North Node Eclipse in Cancer. What have you discovered about Self-care since July? How have you been doing at taking care of your emotional well-being? What emotional “needs” are calling out to be met? What is coming to completion? Or moving to the next level?

This Eclipse is connected to the South Node — and South Node Eclipses can help us release energies or attachments that no longer serve our Soul’s evolution. We get to redefine how we are moving with this particular energy in our lives.

We started 2019 with a South Node Eclipse in 15.5 degrees of Capricorn (on Jan. 5th), and we are ending the year with another one in 4º of Capricorn; this indicates that we are continuing to release or redefine certain outdated structures in our lives, or take a more serious look at the commitments we are ready to make, some of which would definitely be long-term in nature.

The last South Node Solar Eclipse in 4º of Capricorn was on Dec. 25th, 2000. We are likely to experience a resonance between now and that time — “resonant”, rather than identical — so think back to the Winter of 2000/2001: Were there any major endings and beginnings? What was important back then? If you were to take those priorities to the next level, where would that next level find you?

If you’re looking for more guidance on those questions, I would suggest taking a look at your Natal Chart — the House placement of the Eclipse will indicate which areas of life are most ready to release outdated structures and go to a new level of consciousness.

If that idea appeals, check out my 30-minute class, “How to Read My Birth Chart” — you might also want to purchase the latest Forecasting Forum, where we took a Look at the Year Ahead, as well as the upcoming Eclipses.

Solar Eclipses are a good time to…  To read the whole article and get all the Coaching questions for this month, click here.

Do you have your Ascendant or any personal planets in 0-9 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you are more affected by this powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse; the same is true for those of us with our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo, the Moon rules Cancer).

Setting Intentions for a Solar Eclipse is a little different from the regular monthly New Moon process — after all, we are setting those intentions for the whole 6-month Eclipse cycle, rather than just for the next 28 days. It is best to set our Intentions 48 hours after the the Solar Eclipse becomes exact, and not during a Moon VoC.

The best and most potent times to set your Solar Eclipse Intentions is therefore any time between 12:21am Saturday very early morning on Dec. 28th until 12:13am Monday very early morning, Dec. 30th (that’s Eastern Time in the US — the New York time zone).

Make them powerful — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Capricorn energy!

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 page and/or following me on Twitter. I will post reminders on Saturday and Sunday to let you know when it is time to set your intentions 😉

Thursday late evening, we have an opportunity to soften our need for accomplishment with a gentler, more intuitive approach.

Friday, Dec. 27th:

Friday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day (see Wednesday late afternoon for details).

Friday early afternoon, a Sun/Jupiter alignment in 5.5 degrees of Capricorn becomes exact at 1:25pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Monday evening on; it will be strong until Tuesday morning. This is the start of a “new you” with more confidence and faith; we have a chance to create a world of adventure and personal growth within our long-term goals.

We feel optimistic — and that helps us attract positive circumstances. If you’ve been thinking about launching a new long-term project, this would be an excellent time to do so; this is especially true for projects connected to the Capricorn energy — things like career goals, business dealings, long-term projects, long-term aspirations — or the pursuit of self-mastery and repute as an expert out there in the world.

Government programs or affiliations can also flourish at this time, as can big business ventures with long-lasting impact; here too, we may well feel more vital, confident, and optimistic — but may also be prone to exaggeration.

Given that we strongly prefer to see the good in the world at this time, this is also a good time to resolve conflicts concerning our status in the world, or around our business relationships. Events may give our ego a boost, and we could be feeling quite perky and “alive”. Take advantage of this by promoting yourself or putting yourself “out there”.

If we don’t channel all this energy into something that elevates our mind and soul, we may become a little restless or stressed, so ask yourself: Where does all this energy coming through want to go? How might I use it to my advantage? Could I use it to go beyond what I’ve known myself to be?

This aspect also gives us an opportunity to be encouraging and optimistic with ourselves and others, as we deal with inner and outer limitations, challenges, or pressures. Our perspective on what we have endured or worked towards since early 2019 might change as we begin to see some possibilities around long-term goals and the structures we have been building (or rebuilding) over the last several years.

Ask yourself: What’s the bigger picture that I can now see? What no longer looks so useful in my approach to my long-term goals? What if I got real about that? Could I be courageous enough to acknowledge what’s not working and simply correct it? Could I see the humor in my fallibility and limitations?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 2-9 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, or Libra? If so, you will feel this alignment quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Sagittarius (the Sun rules Leo; Jupiter rules Sagittarius).

Friday at 4:03pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 8 hours until 12:21am EST (Saturday very early morning). Use this intuitive time as an opportunity to investigate your deepest motivations and align them with your long-term goals and achievements. We are capable of great focus for this period.

As with all opportunities in life, this one is not simply handed to us, we have to make something of it. Might deeper perspectives into our psyche move us closer to long-term goals?

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

Saturday, Dec. 28th:

Saturday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Friday night/Saturday very early morning for details).

Friday night/Saturday very early morning, at 12:21am EST, the Moon moves into freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius, where it will journey until next week, Monday late morning (Dec. 30th). With this Moon placement, we often feel emotionally detached; when we do connect to our feelings, it’s typically from a cerebral, intellectual place. We need a cause or project that resonates — preferably one where we can connect with like-minded people.

For the next couple of days, we’ll tend to be more eccentric or experimental; future-related issues like politics or education call to us now, as do unusual or even esoteric subjects like Astrology, UFOs… indeed anything from outer space. Our scientific approach to things leans on originality and ingenuity; we definitely love being unconventional.

The increased value we place on personal and emotional independence could make us come off as indifferent or cold in one-on-one interactions. That said, we can still be friendly and kind, provided we aren’t pushed into doing something conventional or unethical.

Saturday after 12:21am EST, is the best time to start setting our New Moon/Solar Eclipse Intentions. As mentioned on Thursday morning, with a Solar Eclipse it is best to wait until 48 hours after the Eclipse was exact before setting any intentions, as the energy of an Eclipse is quite intense, and it’s therefore wise to wait until the energy settles before setting our intentions.

As always, we also want to avoid any Moon void of course (VoC) phases; this time around that makes the best and most potent time for setting our intentions: today (Saturday) after 12:21am EST, and tomorrow (Sunday) all day — all the way through Monday very early morning at 12:13am EST.

Make your Intentions powerful — after all, they cover the next six months — and if possible, align them with the Solar Eclipse energies that I spoke about in my last video — you might want to watch it again if you are not sure anymore what they are — click here to watch my video on the Solar Eclipse 😉

If you live in a timezone other than EST (US East Coast-time), feel free to join my facebook Fan-page or follow me on twitter I will be posting reminders today and tomorrow throughout the day, to let you know that it is time to set your intentions 😉

For more details on how to set New Moon Intentions, click here or for my article on Solar Eclipse Intentionsclick here

Saturday early morning, we may feel pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and 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 in both in others, and in ourselves (which informs our self-worth); as best as you can, make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

Saturday late evening, at 11:55pm EST, Mercury changes signs from optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius to practical, accomplishment-oriented, status-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Jan. 16th, 2020.

This is a time when our minds like to make concrete plans for the future. A systematic, practical approach to reaching our goals is now favored; we are good at focusing on practical matters and getting down to the essentials.

We do not waste any words at this time — what we say is truthful and to the point. We see reality very clearly now — and it might not look as rosy as we thought. As best as you can, use this time to get in touch with what’s real in your life — without going down the “rabbit hole” of pessimistic inadequacy 😉

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will be more serious and possible more eager to accomplish concrete goals. Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Capricorn? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty for the next 3 weeks.

Sunday, Dec. 29th:

Sunday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day (see Saturday very early morning for details).

Sunday all day until tomorrow, Monday very early morning, at 12:13am EST, is still time to set our New Moon/Solar Eclipse Intentions. As mentioned yesterday already, with a Solar Eclipse it is best to wait until 48 hours after the Eclipse was exact before setting any intentions, as the energy of an Eclipse is quite intense, and it’s therefore wise to wait until the energy settles before setting our intentions.

Sunday late evening, a challenging Mercury/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 11:58pm EST. We started to feel this aspect from Friday evening on; it will remain strong until Tuesday evening. This combination might bring up some insecurities in our verbal, in-person or email interactions.

That said, this could also be an opportunity for healing; we are energized to move past harsh criticism of ourselves or others, towards more loving and compassionate structures for thinking and communicating. As best as you can, stretch yourself — and be open to bringing love and understanding to it all (and that includes you) 🙂

Please keep in mind that as a Member of this online community you have FREE access to this workshop via your Member’s account (click on the “My Courses”- tab)

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point or any personal planets in the following: 0-5 degree of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra, or 28-29 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, or Gemini? 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 Gemini or Virgo (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo).

And…

A heads up for next Monday (Dec. 30th): the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius until 10:41am EST (see Saturday very early morning for details). At 5:24am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 5 hours until 10:41am EST. At 10:41am EST, the Moon moves into creative, sensitive Pisces, where it will journey until Wednesday late evening. In the late afternoon, a harmonious Mercury/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 5:22pm EST; we started to feel this aspect from Dec. 28th on; it will remain strong until Jan. 1st 2020. Last but not least, also on Monday, Uranus starts to slow down (station) getting ready to end it’s 5-month Retrograde phase. More about all the details in next week’s forecast 🙂

Solar Eclipse in Capricorn — article

On Dec. 26th at 12:13am EST, the Moon aligns with the Sun in 4 degrees of Capricorn, launching both a new Moon and a new Eclipse cycle. Solar Eclipses are extra-powerful New Moons, and they take place approximately every 6 months.  Feel free to also watch my video on the subject

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 16th:

Monday, the Moon remains in attention-loving Leo all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. We have a chance to appreciate ourselves and our lives — and to connect to the heart.

Hand out as many compliments as possible, they will be deeply appreciated 🙂 Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you squeak just thinking about it?

Monday very early morning, we are still invited to make some internal adjustments. We may want to have some fun, but may also need to tune in to our intuitive inner voice. What do you hear when you get really quiet?

Monday morning, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun.

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most committed to: Are we after laughter and joy? Or building a solid foundation? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment.

Monday early afternoon, feels a little uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun.

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most passionate about: Are we after laughter and joy? Or intense and authentic emotion? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment.

Monday at 5:10pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 9 hours until 2:16am EST (Tuesday very early morning). Use this intuitive time to feel excited about an adventure. Things flow nicely during this time; you have an opportunity to connect, explore, and become part of something exciting.

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

Also, on Monday, we enter Eclipse season until Jan. 24th 2020; for 10 days before and after an Eclipse, we are usually in uncharted territory: anything is possible and it’s wise to expect the unexpected.

Anything brand-new (and I really mean brand, brand-new) started during this time will likely not pan out the way we thought it would, often because important information comes to light only after the New Moon that follows the last Eclipse. If possible, try to defer any major brand-new projects until after Jan. 24th, when this Eclipse season is over. If something is beginning or ending in a way that seems organic allow it to be.

Another Eclipse-related phenomenon: not only do Eclipses bring up uncertainty in us, they might also leave us nervous, anxious, unsettled and disoriented. As best as you can, observe your feelings and stay grounded in the “here and now”. Connect to your intuition and inner wisdom; they will help carry you through this period. Remember: it’s temporary and we are receiving an upgrade — that’s a good thing!

Just like upgrading a computer, you will get all the information you need, as soon as the upgrade is complete — so as best you can, be patient. This does not mean that we need to drop everything; it just means it’s wise to…

Full Moon in Gemini — article

On Dec. 12th at 12:12am EST, the Full Moon becomes exact in almost 20 degree of Gemini; as mentioned above, the entrance of the Moon into Gemini Tuesday late morning started the energetic build up towards the Full Moon. The Moon in chatty, versatile Gemini opposes the Sun in optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. Feel free to watch a 10min. Excerpt of my Full Moon video.

If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to watch the whole 52min. Full Moon video for more details.

Full Moons give us a chance to realize how far we’ve come since the time of the last New Moon — we gain a better insight as to whether we’re where we’d like to be, or if it’s time to correct our course. Full Moons also highlight relationships, and sometimes bring about a crisis to heighten our awareness of any imbalances, thereby pointing us towards the integration of certain polarities.

Ask yourself: How far have I come in regards to understanding the bigger picture and my beliefs within that frame? What are my current experiences directly teaching me about life? What might the next step be? What decisions could I make over the next two weeks to support me on my current adventures?

This month’s Full Moon has a mutable T-Square, a Stellium in Capricorn — and Chiron (the Wounded Healer) is exalted. I will go into all those in detail in a moment…

Soon after this Full Moon becomes exact, Eclipse season begins… Dec. 16th until Jan. 24th. Feel free to join us live on Dec. 16th at 4pm EST for the last Forecasting Forum of the year! We will take a Look ahead at 2020! And the upcoming Eclipses!

To register, click here. Registration also gives you access to the mp4-video recording of the live event. Star and SuperStar Members are automatically registered and will receive a link to join on the day of the webinar.

So, for the next two weeks, we will be dealing with the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity, and seeking balance and integration around those poles — something needs to be brought into alignment — so let’s look at those signs in more detail:
Sagittarius highlights the importance of seeing our life as a journey, and trusting our intuition to show us the way: Why are we here? What is the human journey all about?

Sagittarius shows us a wider perspective, asking us to…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-22 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)

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, Dec. 9th:

Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. It will journey there until Tuesday late morning. 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 for the next day? It’s probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉

Monday early morning, at 4:42am EST, Mercury changes signs from intense, passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio to optimistic, adventurous, truth-seeking Sagittarius. It will journey through this fiery sign, until Dec. 28th. During this time, our thinking shifts from a need to plumb the depths of any given situation, to the desire to explore a wide range of topics — especially topics that widen our horizons.

We seek out new ideas; our thinking is more optimistic and our faith increased. We are more equipped to believe and to persuade and will have an easier time reframing problems into opportunities: What if we saw everything that happens to us as a chance to grow? What might change if everything was happening “for” us rather than “to” us?

Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel a greater need for expansion — let’s hope it’s not your waistline that expands 🙂 Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius? If so, you will most likely feel more chatty for the next 3 weeks.

Monday late morning, we have an opportunity to meet our need for material comfort with a gentler, more intuitive approach.

Also, Monday late morning: we have the ability to comfortably accomplish things that are aligned with our values, coupled with a nice feeling of ease — rushing is not required or expected of us right now. We are also feeling quite grounded in our connections with others and can be quite “real” with them without causing offense.

Monday afternoon, Slow down a little and focus on what’s sitting right in front of you that needs to be taken care of, so you can get to the next phase of accomplishment. Rushing will backfire right now.

Monday 8:13pm EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for a little over 15.5 hours until 11:47am EST (Tuesday late morning). Use this intuitive time to empower each other in regards to earthly issues and mutually support each other in practical ways.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or…

Now, this week’s Forecast…

 

Monday, December 2nd:

Monday, the Moon remains in freedom-loving, forward-thinking Aquarius all day. It will journey there until Tuesday very early morning. The energy of the Aquarian Moon relates to our instinct for improvement. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional; interactions 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, progress: all these are promoted during the time the Moon moves through Aquarius. Again: we have our eyes on the future — or on outer space 🙂 Personal freedom becomes paramount.

Monday at 7:27am EST, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for almost 19 hours until 2:11am EST (Tuesday very early morning). We are pulled in two quite different directions: On the one hand, we experience a need for connecting with like-minded people and remaining objective; on the other hand, we want to go deeper, and communicate from a place of passion and empowerment.

We may thus have to address our fears and “issues”. Make space both for connecting, and interacting — and for going within, to reorganize your thought patterns and release any disempowering thought structures. As best as you can, use this intuitive time to make adjustments and find creative solutions when it comes to these energies.

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

Monday afternoon, at 1:20pm EST, Jupiter moves from adventurous, enthusiastic Sagittarius into practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn, where it will journey until Dec. 19th, 2020.

Jupiter represents our desire to seek insight through knowledge; some of this planet’s keywords are gratitude, hope, honor, morality, and the law — it is also the planet of possibility, optimism, and growth (including mental and spiritual growth), and is associated with a sense of humor, goodwill, and mercy.

The lower expressions of Jupiter include “Oh, the heck with it”, “I deserve this and more”, “the rules do not apply to me” — generally speaking, too much of a good thing, blind optimism, excess, stretching the truth, overindulgence, and so forth.

In the natal chart, the position of Jupiter reveals how we express generosity and tolerance, it also shows how we go about trusting others and improving our lives. Where do you look for wisdom and understanding? Where do you need movement and spaciousness? Where do you feel optimistic and have faith that things will turn out ok?

Jupiter represents the principle of expansion; it’s been in Sagittarius over the last year (2019), where it sought the bigger picture, new perspectives, expansion, and higher learning of some kind — imagine a powerful lens, searching, magnifying.

Sagittarius values both freedom of movement and the truth, so we’ve been getting to see what we believe to be true about ourselves, life, and others in 2019 (and what stories we’ve been telling ourselves, too) — and we also wanted to go full steam ahead, no matter what the direction.

With Jupiter in Capricorn, that magnifying lens now swings over to long-term goals and worldly achievements; the opportunity now is to ground the enthusiastic energies of Jupiter and commit to a path that we have been visualizing or toying with over the last year (2019).

Jupiter in Capricorn also promotes a greater understanding of our potential for overcoming adversity in the real world; it also helps us develop our ability (or shows us our inability) to have faith in our higher Selves, our divinity, here on earth.

For the next 12.5 months, we definitely attract the most good fortune when we are…  If you are already a  Member of my online community, feel free to read the whole article: click here; or if you want to know how this planetary movement is impacting you personally, feel free to purchase our latest webinar — we applied the Jupiter movement to our own birth charts! Click here to purchase.

Star and Super Star Members: please check your emails — I sent out the mp4-video presentation on Nov. 13/14th.

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, an opportune Mercury/Pluto aspect becomes exact at 12:23am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday morning (Dec. 1st) on, it will remain strong until Wednesday morning (Dec. 4th). This aspect provides an opportunity to restructure or rebuild areas of our lives that need it.

Due to the Mercury’s Retrograde phase we have experienced this particular aspect several times. The first time Mercury connected to Pluto in this way was on Oct.19th, the second time on Nov. 9th — so think back to those times:

What came up during those two periods? What opportunities did you see? What did you discover about your motivations to build something lasting and meaningful? Are your thoughts supporting you on this path or “keeping you small”? Has previous research pointed you in the right direction? Where might you point the investigation next?

This aspect is an opportunity to …
