Sunday, December 1
Moon in friendly, creative Aquarius sextiles Sun in confident Sagittarius. Importantly, this is the last day that mighty Jupiter will be free to romp in his ruling sign of Sagittarius. Today is great for decorating a tree or sprig, joining with friends for an early celebration or to discuss holiday plans, or having an adventure.
We may also enjoy other expansive, sociable activities like fighting for a cause, organizing a surprise party, learning a new dance or attending an offbeat spiritual gathering.
Guardian Angel, please make a space for joy in my heart and connections now.
Monday, December 2
Gregarious, expansive Jupiter begins a year-long stint in Capricorn, the sign of the schoolmarm. In Capricorn the planet of party cools down, making this holiday’s tone more serious than usual. The upside is that if we have something to finish or produce, we can get into a kind of boy scout mode, heroically focused on the mission at hand and able to leap tall piles of papers or other productive goals in a single bound, one after another, in true Capricorn style.
From now through December 10, this planet of fortune will be triggering the Aries point, which is on and around the first degree of a cardinal sign. This placement gives long-reaching force to all things related to Jupiter and Capricorn. (For more on this transit, check our December General Influences.)
With today’s Moon VOC in Aquarius, our mode is not so productive. However, a fortunate sextile from Mercury the messenger to Pluto the deep does favor creative thinking, journaling, encounters with close friends, researching fringe topics for fun, and transmuting our thoughts.
If you’re up for it, do spiritual work or business after 11:11 pm (2:11 am ET), when Moon enters Pisces, followed by a lovely sextile to Jupiter that favors publicity, commerce, and contacts with light beings.
Angels are with me always, and I pause to heed them now.
Tuesday, December 3
Moon in sensitive Pisces makes dynamic aspects that facilitate action in business, romance, creativity, and in general, contacts with others.
Charming Venus, still on the doorstep of yesterday’s sextile from Mercury the messenger to Pluto the powerful, moves to sextile potent Mars. This combination makes for rich connections that generate something new—a hot date, making love, working on creative expression or sales, or doing something requiring charm.
Mars also receives a harmony from Moon, prompting us to act on a dream, or defend a vulnerable group or loved one.
At 10:58 pm (1:58 am ET), Moon reaches her Second Quarter. At 11-12 Pisces, her Sabian symbol says:
IN THE SANCTUARY OF AN OCCULT BROTHERHOOD, NEWLY INITIATED MEMBERS ARE BEING EXAMINED AND THEIR CHARACTER TESTED… The ever-repeated challenge presented to the individual by the group in which she has claimed acceptance… to prove herself and her ability to assume responsibility effectively… Sooner or later life… demands [that one stand] up to the ideal he or she has declared publicly… The initiate has become a constituent part of a… field of mental-spiritual activity… She is no longer seeking, having found her place, she must prove herself able to fulfill the function associated with it…Keyword: QUALIFICATION.
Guardian Angel (or name your spirit guide), please direct me to demonstrate my best and highest place in the divine plan now.
Wednesday, December 4
Today’s constructive numerology of 4 compliments lunar sextiles to Saturn the builder and Pluto the powerful, accentuating the potential of today’s Moon in creative Pisces and making this a day worthy of focus.
Activities that combine focus, intentionality, and creativity in almost magical synergy are favored. For example,
- Organize the month
- Work on art, business or something requiring imagination
- Write a proposal,
- Settle a dispute with family, friends or colleagues
- Design a house or production
- Send out tweets, emails or promotional messages.
Goddesses of power, please connect me with my inner magic and direct me to apply it, here and now.
Thursday, December 5
Yesterday’s window for magical action remains open, as Moon in creative Pisces receives the dynamic vibration of number 5.
Use it before 11:44 am (2:44 pm ET), when Luna enters restless Aries, keeping us on our toes.
Moon’s square to Jupiter and conjunction to Chiron aren’t particularly harmonious, and can bring out the touchy side of this placement. To counteract this tendency, take a walk in nature, pick up garbage in the neighborhood, make a list of independent actions to take tomorrow evening, work on the car or a health issue, or do something bold at a distance. Avoid unnecessary fights, coming on too strong, and taking things personally.
I am an agent of good, and the universe supports my actions now.
Friday, December 6
Moon in trigger-happy Aries makes tense aspects to ruler Mars and relational Venus. Today’s kind, sociable numerology of 6 softens these vibrations somewhat, favoring independent, creative work and getting organized to act tonight, when Moon trines Sun in confident Sagittarius.
The aspect starts at 5:04 pm (8:04 ET), bringing our minds and hearts into alignment and favoring bold initiatives in trading, limit-setting, re-launching a scheme or business begun sometime before October 16, taking advantage of a situation, participating in a competition, sending out a proposal or resumé, collecting a debt, or pushing through inner resistance to get something done.
Nothing can be limiting me because there is no power to limit, only Spirit’s power that lifts me up in wellness, harmony and success now.
Saturday, December 7
Moon in Aries makes us want to move, but her early squares to boss-planets Saturn and Pluto bring out the feisty potential of this placement. And, Moon goes VOC at 7:01 am (10:01 ET), where she’ll be for the rest of the day, leaving us without emotional focus.
Solitary activity spares us some of Aries’ potential abrasiveness. We might do light exercise, weed the garden, apply the perceptual strength of today’s number 7 to study a new topic, plan a competitive strategy, do crossword puzzles, or play Scrabble with someone harmonious.
At 11:29 pm (2:29 am), Moon enters Taurus, sign of her exaltation, where she helps us stay grounded in the midst of tomorrow’s excitement.
I give thanks that I’m divinely guided to apply my courage in positive, appropriate ways now.
Sunday, December 8
Sun squares imaginative Neptune, stimulating our faith, intuition and imagination and making today propitious for enjoying music, art, a spiritual gathering, and contacting light beings or dear ones on the other side.
Although this aspect can exaggerate risks and confusion, Moon in earthy Taurus keeps our feet on the ground.
Her contacts to Jupiter and Uranus trigger altruistic sentiments. A sextile from Venus to Neptune—planets of personal and spiritual love, respectively—fuels compassion. It’s also nice for romance, empathy and healing. A square from Jupiter to Chiron also favors healing.
And, ta-da! Mercury finally emerges from shadow, ending a seven-week retrograde/shadow period and freeing up communications that seemed stuck.
Today, we can do something unusual involving others, particularly in service. But, we’ll do best to avoid making a loan, decision or commitment, or visiting dubious places. Take it easy on the alcohol or mind-altering substances; focus on someone or something close to your heart and soul. We don’t have to hole-up— today’s numerology of 8 contributes to our success—but stay mindful and be selective of activities and company.
I’m not subject to toxic influences, the Divine Guardian is with me, guiding me and shielding my physical and psychic being, now amd always.
Monday, December 9
In the wee hours, Mercury ends his two-month sojourn through Scorpio’s shadows. A veil or even a weight of sorts lifts. With the messenger planet now in out-there Sagittarius, we’re able to speak our minds and share our ideas—even, at times, just a bit much.
This transit works nicely with the Moon exalted in Taurus and harmonizing with Venus, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. With Mercury finally direct, at the tail end of Moon’s waxing phase, just two days before the upcoming Full Moon, these transits make this one of December’s best days for tangible results from our efforts.
Such tangible efforts might include launching a promotion or publication, setting up a business, taking care of money, making an investment, leasing or renting property, hiring new staff, or buying or renting a home. Or, working on home affairs, self-esteem, romance, or something involving stability and security, or that requires long-lasting results, is also favored.
At 5:13 pm (8:13 ET), Moon goes VOC, although in Taurus she still performs.
In spite of my fear I move forward, and my results are magical, now amd always.
Tuesday, December 10
With Mercury the messenger in trine to wounded healer Chiron, morning is a great time to use prayers for healing and forgiveness, to lift someone’s spirits, share motivational messages, or participate in meaningful connection of one kind or another.
At 8:47 am (11:47 ET), Moon enters Gemini, connecting more fully to tomorrow’s Full Moon portal. Gemini loves to communicate. Now we can do errands and business, work on correspondence, send messages, make calls, give a presentation or speech, present a proposal, share ideas with colleagues, authority figures or clients, obtain and sign a contract, do a live broadcast on social networks; work on sales, writing or something requiring inspiration and inventiveness. And—avoid getting distracted or scattered.
No circumstance or situation can keep Infinite Intelligence from expressing through me successfully now.
Wednesday, December 11
With Venus joining Saturn and Mercury connecting with Uranus, this is a relational day, but not necessarily smooth.
On days like today, with the numerology of 11, the angels use humanity’s love vibration to lift the planetary frequency. If we meditate or affirm to generate this energy in the morning, we will connect with the highest and best frequency of today’s Full Moon portal.
Although it comes with some tense aspects, this lunation’s final dispositor is Saturn, whose conjunction to Venus sweetens the work required by the taskmaster planet. The improvements we make in business and relationships can be lasting.
The December Full Moon is connected to the energy of Oak. Known for its strength, Oak’s roots go deep into the earth and her branches reach wide and high, supporting our confidence and our intentions to find balance between material and spiritual existence.
In Gemini, this lunation becomes exact at 9:12 pm (12:12 am ET). It brings to light things related to communication, deals of all kinds, contracts, bureaucracy, siblings and work connections.
By invoking the spirit of Oak, we can conclude things and close cycles in preparation for the upcoming Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.
At 19-20 Gemini, the Sabian symbol says:
A SELF-SERVICE RESTAURANT DISPLAYS AN ABUNDANCE OF FOOD. Prodigal distribution of life resources. Inner wealth, satiation or discriminative use of natural energies.
Moon goes VOC on reaching fullness.
Spirit of Oak, please imbue me with confidence and intuition so I may work for mastery now and throughout the present cycle.
Thursday, December 12
It would be great if we could each get some down time today. Moon is VOC in Gemini until 3:23 pm (5:23 pm ET), when she enters Cancer. If you can’t get out of work, try sticking routine chores. Or journal, do crossword puzzles and use mantras or affirmations.
A T-square to Chiron and Jupiter accent Cancer Moon’s sensitivity, bringing to light emotional issues triggered by last night’s Full Moon. Also, Chiron itself goes direct in opposition to Jupiter, while these two are both at the critical Aries point. Provoke a pause to work on feelings through meditation, journaling, therapy, or a preferred modality.
An evening sextile from Moon to Uranus makes nighttime easier, and better than today for socializing and communications.
Guardian Angel (or spirit guides), please help me look at my feelings and heal them definitively now.
Friday, December 13
The weekend begins on an intense note, with pushy Mars in intense Scorpio in trine to sensitive Neptune, and Venus, planet of love and money, joining powerful Pluto. This combination is highly creative, perfect for healing emotional and hormonal conditions, acting on one’s intuition, having a sexy encounter, making a heroic effort to help people or causes, and getting to the bottom of our true emotions.
Moon in sensitive Cancer further accents intuition and puts home, family, real estate, business, or one’s country in the spotlight.
Consult your inner guidance system, work on forgiveness, act boldly on your dreams or on behalf of a person or cause. Save direct confrontation for another day and steer clear of potentially dubious situations, places, gatherings and connections.
I’m not subject to toxic or limiting influences. Spirit’s love shines through every situation and condition, bringing only good to me, now amd always.
Saturday, December 14
With Moon in Cancer connecting with Sun and artistic Venus, creativity is in the air. We’re still on the Full Moon portal, and fortunate Jupiter is approaching a trine with Uranus, planet of freedom, so today’s efforts can make a difference at home or in creative, business and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Read our comments for Wednesday’s Full Moon, catch up on an independent initiative, refurbish or decorate your home, help a family member.
At 7:56 pm (10:56 ET), Moon enters playful Leo. Creative inspiration continues to flow, but so does the party spirit.
Infinite good prevails in my world, and I can only pick up the good, now amd always.
Sunday, December 15
We get one of the year’s great gifts in the form of a trine from fortunate Jupiter to Uranus the liberator. Actually, both of these planets have to do with freedom, and this propitious harmony can precipitate an unblocking. With earth signs, the spotlight is on our security, material concerns, and financial freedom.
We can pursue financial good fortune and mental/emotional independence in many ways: advertise a blog or services for psychology, self-help or astrology, impart or take a class, give a lecture related to communications or a technical or new-age topic, seek out oversees connections, buy a lottery ticket, ask for a miracle, file for a patent, do or publicize psychical research, broadcast our message.
If your current priorities are not material, use this transit to enjoy some offbeat, atypical activities—try a bicycle trail, join a brotherhood or boycott, try a new spiritual group or practice, prepare a divorce, engage in spiritual healing, contact angels, gods and goddesses, climb a mountain, visit a phrenologist, do or publicize psychical research, or enjoy a romance.
Midday is the best time to connect with others.
I give thanks for the expected and unexpected blessings that flow to me, now amd always.
Monday, December 16
The trine from Jupiter to Uranus is still active, and today’s numerology of 7 emphasizes mental and intuitive pursuits. Re-read our tips for yesterday afternoon, and take tangible action (particularly for things related to study and communication), broadcast your message. Seek out overseas connections or someone who can teach you or open a key door.
Do this before 2:10 pm (5:10 ET), when Moon goes VOC, where she will be until 11:16 pm (2:16 am ET), when she enters Virgo. This afternoon and evening, take some time off for fun, get in touch with your inner child, color a mandala, dance, do something theatrical, watch a funny movie.
I don’t have to wait for my good. My good cannot in a different place or time. My good is always where I am, and it appears as (name your preferred intent, such as guidance, opportunities, or financial supply) through infinite channels now.
