SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
Mars and Jupiter in Libra will be accentuating big bold moves in things that relate to the way we operate together. Some of that will be good and some will test our patience. Through January 17th, this action and abundance mode will be in full swing. Just remember that when it gets to mid-January, a new period of purging the old and embracing the new will begin, and that might not be so polite as the first part of the month. Build some good will while you can. This gradual conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in Libra will culminate on midday January 1st through most of January 2nd. I would like to propose rather than staying up late to usher in the new year, to have open houses on the 1st by connecting with the people in your life that are important. The tone we set for the first day of the year, which is also timed with a full moon, can be earth shaking… in a good way! If that is not possible, then spending the day in gratitude and some austerity would be a wonderful counter to the excesses that have ended the year. Set the tone of sustainability.
Also, a short note on January being a double full moon event. The first day and mostly the last day of January will have a full moon. The one at the end of the month will also be a super moon and eclipse. Eclipses can be turning points in who you were and who you are becoming. Take the hints and opportunity to use the first full moon, January 1st, and create a wave of good deeds and gifts for the month and hopefully the rest of the year. Attitude and gratitude are everything right now.
Friday, December 29th, Risky behavior will case a backlash. Better to consider how actions will affect your health and how others look at you. In general, the news will say something inspiring and momentous, but we feel like we are going backwards and we are. Ask yourself if this is a history lesson being repeated and act accordingly. What is the best strategy on this edgy day is to make plans for the future that include your goals without the bad attitude. You are setting a tone, or shift in consciousness which can help tip the tide of depressive free fall. Those with heavy Aries influences, be very careful with your tendency for showing off or shock and awe. That behavior will really upset those you love. Moon in Aries.
Saturday, December 30th, present your best social face around noon, you know, smile and act polite. If practiced enough, then the pattern will be set as well as some of the bonuses of optimism. Others are watching and will judge you the rest of the day by your behavior. Give them a good impression! There are few difficulties today as people do their daily activities. But there is a heightened sense of anticipation as the new year and full moon approach. Moon in Taurus.
Sunday, December 31st news is likely to act as daggers to the heart. Be careful with what you say and what you think as they can bring some unintended consequences. Watch your health also. If you need to make some life style changes, begin with them today. The next couple of days will be setting a tone for your next year, make it count. Moon in Taurus.
Monday, January 1st, Happy New Year to you all. We need to see something other than contentious and debilitating agendas. While it won’t last, do get used to the groove of feeling centered, grateful and content with what you have. With the full moon in Gemini we will be all over the place with our desires. Focus those thoughts and avoid monkey mind of losses or disappointments. An after effect of a world of wanting more, we could learn to appreciate just what we have and how much that really is. This is a great day to call upon those you care about and have an open house where you wish each other something special and just be happy. Lots of magic can occur if we set the new year in the right tone. Moon in Gemini.
Tuesday, January 2nd, we have one last day of testing our new perspective of good will towards man. Balancing out your thoughts with higher philosophical platitudes will go a long way. Make the best of the near conjunction of Venus and the Sun in Sagittarius with higher ideals and understanding. Moon in Gemini.
Wednesday, January 3rd, your need for crutches and indulgences will be strong. You have probably taken some steps to improve your lot in life. This could be a test for those without the full resolve to be successful. Be strong, and you can go with the flow you desire. You just need to show the powers that be you are engaged and mean what you say. Moon in Cancer.
Thursday, January 4th, fortuitous news comes our way as a Grand Trine connects with lucky synchronicities and where we need to go in the future. Be on your best behavior, like you have been for a few days and lots of great things can come your way. These really could be very good things, and maybe more in the genre of offers from others, as your personal efforts have lots of blocks. Look at it as the universe letting you know you are on the right track. Moon in Cancer.
Blessings and peace,
