The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.
And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.
That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.
There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.
This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.
In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.
In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened.
His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.
This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.
Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld. Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.
This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck. In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go. Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.
And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers. When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.
I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.
But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.
And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.
That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.
This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.
Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion. Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.
Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.
Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini. Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.
Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.
The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM. Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ. It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.
For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.
This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning. Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.
With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.
Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.
Let the conversation take you and all will be fine. Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.
Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.
Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.
Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.
Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships. Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.
My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.
Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England. They will always remain deeply in my heart.
