Meaning of Solar and Lunar Eclipses – PLUS Rituals You Can Do During Each

By The AstroTwins

Meaning of Eclipses

Dragging your feet? Avoiding the inevitable? Resistance and procrastination are natural; we tend to avoid what’s painful and stay in our comfort zones. Solar and lunar eclipses are dramatic turning points. They provide the cosmic kick in the pants to push us off the fence and into action. On the upside, if you’ve been waiting around for a clear sign or answer, an eclipse will speed up the process.

Eclipses are these agents of change. They occur four to six times a year and turn things upside down. In our disoriented state, we may act out of character or see turbulence in the world. Eclipses can also help break patterns and shift dynamics. However, most astrologers suggest waiting a week or so before taking drastic action, allowing the eclipse energy to settle first.

Solar eclipses: Time to start fresh.

Solar eclipses occur at new moons. During a solar eclipse, the moon is directly between the Earth and Sun (known as a conjunction, or meetup, of the Sun and the moon). During this brief time, the moon can block out the Sun’s light, temporarily disconnecting us from our sense of reality.

In astrology, a solar eclipse could bring a bold beginning, setting us on a new path that we hadn’t imagined for ourselves. While it may be surprising—or not something you even expected—a solar eclipse has a bigger vision in store for us. We have a finite focus as human beings, and it’s natural to concentrate on what’s in front of us. At times, this can limit our perspectives and cause us to miss out on opportunities. Solar eclipses might snatch away the familiar temporarily, forcing us to consider options we would never otherwise explore. Although this can cause upheaval, eclipses are “cruel to be kind.” Major growth can happen during these cosmic power outages. This is when we should leap into new (and generally improved) terrain, even if we feel forced there by circumstances beyond our control.

Lunar eclipses: Let it go, let it flow.

Lunar eclipses occur at full moons. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon is nearing its full state and enters the Earth’s shadow. During a lunar eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the Sun and the Moon (known as an opposition between the Sun and the Moon). For a brief spell, we can see the Earth’s shadow turning the luminous full moon intense shades of reds, browns, and grays. Depending on where in the world you are, an eclipse may be visible.

According to astrology, lunar eclipses give us a glimpse into what Carl Jung referred to as the “shadow self.” We all want to think of ourselves as good, kind people, but hey—we’re also human! What we discover about ourselves and others during lunar eclipses can be tough to admit, even shocking. Still, this gives us the opportunity to embrace our wholeness and see where we have room to grow in new directions.

Owning the fact that we have emotions (like fear, anger, jealousy, and rage) is the first step to getting a handle on them. Trying to pretend we’re perfect or stuffing down our feelings? That’s when our unexamined issues creep up and overwhelm us. If we’re willing to suspend judgment and accept the good along with the bad, lunar eclipses can be potent moments of self-discovery.

Why our ancestors feared eclipses.

Eclipses throughout history have gotten a bad rap. They were both revered and feared. The ancients were baffled by the Sun’s “disappearance” from the sky during a solar eclipse, so they made up stories involving angry (or “hangry”) gods eating the Sun. Because eclipses have correlated with climate catastrophes, such as hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes, many cultures believed that eclipses angered the gods. During lunar eclipses, people were known to act “loony” (root word: lunatic, which is of the root word lunar)—and in our own informal observation, we’ve noticed that, too. However, Western science has only confirmed a single fact: We need to protect our eyes if we watch a solar eclipse!

Rituals for the eclipses: Renew and release.

Rituals for new and full moons are becoming more popular by the day. At an eclipse, a ritual can help you stay grounded in the face of any chaos, especially if you set dedicated intentions.

Solar eclipses fall at new moons, so a ritual or intention-setting could focus on helping you start anew. Themes could include finding the courage to make a fresh start, embracing change, taking a risk (even if you’re scared), putting yourself out there, making a big reveal/coming out of the metaphorical closet.

Lunar eclipses fall at full moons, which are times of ending, closure, manifestation, and transition. Lunar eclipse rituals may center around having a huge breakthrough, pushing past barriers and limits, letting go of a painful situation for good, breaking free of an addictive pattern, healing, or releasing.

You may want to do a zodiac-specific ritual depending on which sign the eclipse falls in astrologically. Follow our tips for new and full moon rituals and gatherings. You can do a ritual by yourself or gather with friends to amplify your intentions.

Eclipses and the lunar nodes of astrology.

Lunar nodes—the “destiny points” in astrology—are tied to the eclipses. The lunar nodes are determined by the points where the moon’s orbit crosses the “ecliptic”—the apparent path the Sun makes around the earth that is the basis of Western astrology. The north and south nodes in your chart are determined by where the eclipses were happening. So from a mystical perspective, eclipses are tied to our past lives, karmic paths, and soul missions!

Your Mars Sign Meaning Reveals A Lot About Your Sexual Needs, So Take Notes

By ROYA BACKLUND

If you’re looking to the stars for answers to all your burning questions about sex, it’s time to examine your Mars sign meaning. Ruling over our most carnal impulses, Mars reveals how you deal with passion, desire, lust, and most enticingly, your erotic tendencies beneath the sheets. From a warm smoldering all the way to a volcanic eruption, Mars is always there, guiding you through your most indulgent moments. In essence, Mars strips you down and exposes the animal you really are. The animal that lives within us all, just waiting for the chance to roar with wild fury. Now, what type of animal are you in bed?

If you’ve ever had a wild sexual compatibility with someone who you’re not necessarily supposed to get along with according to your sun signs, your Mars compatibility could be the reason why. Every Mars sign has different needs when it comes to sex. Some might need to have an emotional connection, and others could feel the connection with anyone, as long as they’re the one in control. If you don’t know what your Mars sign is, input your time, date, and place of birth into this calculator and then read on for all the delicious details you never knew about your naughty self.

MARS IN ARIES

There is no Mars sign more easily aroused than Aries. They’re fiercely addicted to the chase and if they’ve got their eyes on you, it won’t be long before you know it. Their attention span is just as fickle, so remember that it might not last. They prefer sex when it’s wild, without inhibitions, and fast. This is not a sign that enjoys a long, graceful period of foreplay. They’d prefer to get right to the f*cking and when they do, there’s no holding them back. Sex with them will likely leave both partners bruised, hair-tangled, and aching with raw desire.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, or Libra would be able to keep up with their whirlwind.

MARS IN TAURUS

A Mars sign in Taurus allows passion to build slowly, naturally, and steadily without ever taking their mind off the goal. This is a sign that will appreciate their partner with all five of their senses, leaving no corner of them untouched. They also prefer a consistent partner to lavish in. For them, sex is to be enjoyed like a fine wine, with each sip captivating and savored, but also reserved for only the most perfect moments. This is not a sign that will likely enjoy a quickie in the car. They want to build a home between your legs and live there for a while.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, or Scorpio would be perfect for their luxurious care.

MARS IN GEMINI

The most intellectual of Mars signs, Gemini is obsessed with dirty talk. They love buttering their partner up with raunchy, yet passionate word play. To them, sex is a bit of a game. The more clever you are when stimulating their mind, the faster they’ll want to unbutton your pants. They’re also the best kissers and could spend hours making out, teasing, and tantalizing you all the while. This is not a sign that enjoys sex unless their imaginations are running wild with it. They want poetry interlaced with their orgasms.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Gemini, Aquarius, Libra, or Sagittarius would have just enough wit to get their libido going.

MARS IN CANCER

For a Mars sign in Cancer, desire and emotions are rarely mutually exclusive. Sex is symbolic of what both partners mean to each other, making them the most protective and sentimental of Mars signs. This sign doesn’t want to f*ck just anyone either. You must really be different if they want their tongue all over you. In order for them to truly lose themselves in sex, they need reassurance that their partner is completely devoted to them. It’s worth it though. Sex with them will feel like you’re the only two people left in the world.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, or Capricorn will dive right into their romantic world.

MARS IN LEO

A Mars sign in Leo wants to be utterly worshipped by their partner. Prideful of their abilities in bed, they’ll leave no stone unturned until they’re positive they’re the best you’ve ever had. This is an ostentatious sign that would be turned on by the thought of the upstairs neighbor hearing the sound of your moans. They’d probably ask you to moan louder, to scream their name. Possessive in nature, they’re not likely to want to keep your liaisons a secret. They’ll brag to everyone about how much you turn them on.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, or Aquarius would be able to match their fire.

MARS IN VIRGO

The most selfless of Mars signs, Virgo will take the time to study and learn their partners every need, then spoil them rotten. For them, sex is less about themselves and more about their partner, which they their take time to choose. They can’t go around giving their undivided attention to just anyone. This is not a sign that enjoys meaningless or flashy sex and would rather have a private world they can escape to with their partner, where they can both explore their most vulnerable desires in peace.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn, or Pisces would be a perfect candidate for their generosity in bed.

MARS IN LIBRA

A Mars in Libra is the very essence of harmony when it comes to sex. They’ll be chivalrous and romantic during courtship, but once they get you into the bedroom, prepare to be met with a savage frenzy of pent-up desire. A perfect balance of wild and refined, you’ll get the best of both worlds with them. This sign has a need for symmetry and they don’t want to do all the giving, nor all the taking because they get off on both. They want their partner to be on the same page and believe that sex should never leave one of them yearning for more.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Libra, Gemini, Aquarius, or Aries would be the perfect fit for their balanced eroticism.

MARS IN SCORPIO

There is no Mars sign more famous for its sexuality than Scorpio. In a way, their multifaceted libido contains a little of each sign, making them capable of all kinds of sexual impulses. Mysterious by nature, you won’t always know which Scorpio you’re gonna get, but you’ll never be in the dark about their intensity. They can get you wet by simply looking into your eyes. This is not a sign that enjoys sex if their partner isn’t serious about it. For them, sex must be deep, passionate, and extraordinary. They give it their all, like it’s the last time they’ll ever have sex.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces, or Taurus would be perfect for their powerful sex drive.

MARS IN SAGITTARIUS

A Mars in Sagittarius has a direct, yet whimsical and innocent approach to sex. Fooling around and making each other laugh serves as ideal foreplay. Preferring not to intellectualize things nor romanticize them, they treat sex like a fun and lively exploration, retaining their childlike wonder all through-out. Don’t underestimate their friskiness, though. Their innocence will take their partner back in time to the lusty days of their youth, when they first discovered sex. Their playful honesty helps you forget that sex was ever something to be ashamed of.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Sagittarius, Aries, Leo, or Gemini will appreciate their fun-loving style in bed.

MARS IN CAPRICORN

A Mars in Capricorn tends to value security, consistency, and wisdom from their sexual partner. They’re most attracted to someone more experienced, someone they can learn from. This makes being told what to do and being dominated in bed a fierce turn-on. They also need to know that they’re taken care of and won’t stand for a partner who’s eye wanders for even a second. It’s a straightforward approach they have to sex but it’s not without a hopelessly powerful depth. Sex with them is an intense, beyond-this-world connection.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, or Cancer would be willing to disappear into their deep world.

MARS IN AQUARIUS

There is no Mars sign more elusive and mysterious than Aquarius. Their style is more detached, aloof, and secretive than any other’s, which can turn you on to the point of oblivion or totally drive you insane. The reason for this is that they tend to find the hot-and-cold mind game beyond sexy, making them ideal when it comes to role-play or any other kinky endeavors that don’t require a huge emotional commitment. Although they run from dependency, there is no sign more willing to experiment with your craziest fantasies.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, or Leo would be willing to play their seductive mind games.

MARS IN PISCES

Pisces is the most spiritually developed of Mars signs. With a highly sensitive intuition, they sense their partner’s sexual needs without a word. Self-sacrificing and generous in bed, they often go with the flow of whatever their partner craves, setting aside their own needs. Forgiving by nature, if their partner decides they don’t want to sleep with them anymore, they’ll peacefully respect their decision. This can be infuriating for partners who really want them to fight harder for them. Regardless, they provide a dreamy and transcendent sexual experience.

A sexual partner with their Mars sign in Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio, or Virgo would be adore their magical touch.

2019 Numerology – Why Last Year’s Endings Might Still Be Hangin’ On

Calleen Wilder

2019 Numerology

In the past week I’ve spoken with many who are wondering why the relationship endings of last year’s 11/2 are still transpiring.  Thus, I’ve decided to address it.  Remember too that I’m not a professional numerologist.  I’m simply someone who has observed each year’s behaviors and outcomes for the last 25 years or so.  As a result, this is what I’ve discovered:

We procrastinate.  OR… the people in our lives procrastinate.  After all, they have free will too.  AND… if they’re “deep enough in” we feel the ramifications of their decisions as if they were our own.

Consequently why the Universal 11/2 Year we all just waded our way through is still producing tremors and sometimes storms in our lives.  I too am still experiencing the ramifications of free will, procrastination, and other people not “getting on with it” (ha).

Just know that as years change and we’re supposed to be experiencing a freer, lighter year, 2018 has not yet entirely let go of us.

PLUS remember, this 3 Universal Year adds up to a 12/3 (2+0+1+9=12/3).  So the “1” and the “2” are still in position.  “1” representing ourselves and how we choose to respond… as well as what we choose to do based on other people’s decisions.  And “2”, our interaction with others (1+1=2).  So us and them, still trying to figure things out, usually via communication as represented by the “3”.

Granted, it’s not the 11/2 that 2018 was (2+0+1+8=11), which takes all beginnings and endings of relationships to a Master Level.  UGH!

Still though, we’re all just trying to hash it all out during this new “3” year.  Hopefully once we get a little deeper into the year we’ll get to play, talk, laugh, and play some more.  ENOUGH of the strangled endings already (just sayin’… lol).

Hope that helps,

Calleen

2019 Numerology – Your Personal Year PLUS The Universal Year Discussed

By Calleen Wilder

2019 Numerology

Okay… so just a brief reminder, I am not a numerologist. Yet I have studied, along with observed, the effects of numerology for 25 years now. What I’ve learned, mostly from my personal observations, is that numerology is incredibly telling and accurate. It seems that whether we realize it or not our lives do follow a very distinct pattern. Meaning, they are somewhat predictable.

First, let’s talk about the Universal Year

The Universal Year is the year EVERYONE is in.  So when we add 2019 numbers together (2+0+1+9) we get 12/3.  In numerology you always reduce the double digit number down (12) by adding it together (1+2) to end up with the 3.

HOWEVER, you don’t discard the 12 altogether.  There’s information in the 1 and the 2.

The Universal Year is the backdrop for everyone.  It’s what we’re all going through together.  Then we place our Personal Year on top of that to add the seasoning and spices to the mix, the personalization.

SO WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN A 12/3 UNIVERSAL YEAR?

First we have to consider that 3 is the Divine Trinity, representing Mind, Body & Spirit.  Therefore, it’ll be a year of trying to incorporate all 3, as we find balance to all the chaos of last year’s 11/2 (which was a master year, especially in relationships).  But Master Years bring about heavy tests, often accompanied by heavy rewards (fingers crossed).

Therefore this year, we’ll likely try to bring in more of the spiritual side of things if only to gain perspective and get back on bath.  It has us taking the rawness of the 11/2, which often stirred up unhappiness as either we or others strove to take control or power, and turn it into real talk, honest communication about how to fix, repair, or move away from it.

3 is also the number of expression and communication.  It’s a creative energy.  I often think of 3 years much like I think of recess.  We’ve had a tough last 3 Universal Years.  9’s are always endings.  1’s are always New Beginnings with a lot of false starts.  And 2’s are Relationships, and last year was taken to a Master Level.  So this 3 should prove to be a welcome relief.  Provided, I guess, you like being honest about feelings and your future in your job, relationships, and goals.  If not, maybe not entirely so.

So with the 12 still there, we’d have to say a great deal of the communication with be about Ourselves (represented by the 1) and what we truly want, along with How That Affects The Other/The Relationship (represented by the 2).  Again, this could be in business, friendships, pen pals, or any other area, but mainly, personal one-on-one relationships.  We will be finishing what the 11/2 started.

Perhaps marriage is in our future or some other type of new mating.  Perhaps divorce or separation.  Perhaps new business deals are reached with a partner.  Regardless, settlements will be made and conclusions and new beginnings had as a result of all that has gone on before.

I, for one, am whole-heartedly looking forward to this 3 Energy.
The last 3 years have been brutal in some ways.
I’m ready to conclude, as well as, get on with some things.  Enjoy!

 

Next, you’ll need to figure out Your Personal Year.

To figure out your personal year, you add your birth month, to your birth day, to the number 3.   3 is the Universal Year. 

I was born on September 14.  So I add 9+14+3=26/8.

Again, if you end up with a double number at the conclusion, you add it together to end up with a single digit (2+6=8).

The only time you don’t reduce down is if that last digit is an 11, a 22, or a 33.  Even then you should read the appropriate number below while realizing that everything suggested in that number interpretations now fall at a Master Level.  Meaning, harder tests and greater rewards.

Briefly here’s what I’ve discovered the other years mean:

1 – New Beginnings – After the 9 endings year you experienced last year, you’ll now be trying out new things in order to see what you need to do next. It’ll be a busy year. It’ll also be a year of some successes and some failures. So keep tossing things against the proverbial wall, something is bound to stick. Lots of “new” during the 1 Personal Year.  It’s about reinventing you and your life right now in some area.  You have just finished an entire 9-Year Cycle.  That’s completely over.  It’s time to move onto the next chapter in your life.

2 – Interactions with Others – This year you’ll be running your new ideas and plans by others. You’ll also sometimes begin working with others as a result of those plans. As a result, some of these other people will love your new ideas and serve as backers, helpers, and playmates. Others, however, not so much so. They’ll challenge you, and not always in such kind ways. Thus, expect to encounter both applause and resistance. Nice and mean people. Resistance and compliance. This is a year where other people are major players in your day-to-day life. No loners allowed, no matter how much you whine.  Usually it’s a somewhat challenging year.

3 – Communications of All Sorts – Expect new ideas, emails, texts, phone calls, letters, and homing pigeons to find you this year. Expect also to write, talk, present, and exchange ideas with some new and interesting people. This year is a little lighter than the last 3 years have been. You could even be traveling more this year, both locally and afar. It’s a busy year centered around lots of comings and goings. “3” years always have the feeling of air to me. Like something blows in, and then blows out nearly as quickly. Still, some of your meetings and presentations will find people wanting to play on your team. So mingle and speak your truth this year.  Generally speaking, 3’s are good years, much easier than the last few have been.

4 – Laying Firm Future Foundations – In a four year there’s more practical and tangible work getting done. You’re metaphorically laying the foundation that the entire rest of your house (and life) will be built on. It’s a quieter year. A more internal year. A year where you’re busy looking out for you and yours. You are the builder this year. The builder of your career, your financial future, your home, your family, and your life. If you happen to be in a 22/4 (the double digit you began with) you’re a Master Builder. Meaning, you’ll work harder, longer, and perhaps have a few more obstacles to overcome than say the 40/4, or the 31/4, or the 13/4 would. Still, you’ll generally experience Master Results near the end of the year so it’s worth the extra labor.

5 – A Year of Change – Need I say more? Expect the unexpected. Know simply that whatever isn’t working in your life will be done away with, so grin and bear it. Now granted, some “5” years are easier than others. Yet, there’ll ALWAYS be change and movement… lots and lots of movement. The universe is trying to show you what plans were good and what plans absolutely stunk. In the end, you may change jobs, careers, financial plans, relationships, houses, and really even your entire make-up/personality. Everything’s up for grabs in the “5” year. Just know that whatever isn’t working will become painfully obvious. It will also be changed. As I said, everything about your life could change in a 5.  I’ve loved some of my 5 years when the changes have been pleasant.  I’ve also raced to keep up with some 5 years when the changes have been astounding.  Those years, I didn’t like so much.

6 – A Year of Responsibility & Firming Up Your New Structures – Now that the “5” has had its way with you, the 6 comes in and works somewhat similar to a “4” in that you need some “firming up”. Expect then to pay more attention to your health, your home, and your family during a 6. Some people end up caring for relatives, like aging parents, in a 6. Or their college-age kids move back home just after they’ve gotten used to the spare room (ha). This is another “keep your nose to the grindstone” type of year. A year you can get ahead in your career provided you take no short-cuts. Also a year of getting all other areas of your life into better shape. It’s a “be reliable, consistent, and persistent” type of year.  Also, pay attention to your personal health during a 6.  You may need firming up too.

7 – Observe More Than Do Year – “7” represents the healers and hermits among us. It’s a time of things slowing down to a more manageable roll. A year where we find ourselves observing all aspects of our life. A year where we spend our time evaluating our mate, our career, our health, our home, our children, our friends, our beliefs, and really our entire lives overall. It’s a year of setting priorities based on knowledge more than need. We often withdraw from the busy parts of our lives during a “7”. We often even find ourselves talking less, simply so we can think more. Some of us will heal on whatever levels we need to heal during a “7”. Some will also seek out more alternative than traditional therapies. We sort of take everything “in” during a 7. We also decide who and what we wish to keep in our lives, and who and what we need to release.  Now we may wait until the “8” Year to actually act, but we decide this year.  Plus, our intuition is heightened tremendously during a 7 Personal Year. I LOVE the 7 years. Some find them boring. I find them critically necessary.

8 – Money, Power & Privilege Year – An 8 finds us capable of reaching new levels of success… PROVIDED, we’ve done the necessary work leading up to the 8. If we’ve taken short-cuts &/or taken advantage, we might find ourselves falling short in all of the above areas. Here’s the thing, “8” years aren’t just about accumulating a lot of wealth and acclaim, it’s also about the “right use of wealth, power & acclaim”. Meaning, even if we’ve stepped on several toes on our way up, we might still manage to get that raise or promotion.  BUT, if we don’t go back and make amends, we’ll likely fall hard and flat towards the end of this year or the beginning of next. So yes, karma is a HUGE factor in the 8. Just realize that 8 Personal Years usher in the potential for us to reach many of our goals.  Yet it’s all contingent upon the fact that we’ve played fair with others and haven’t considered only our needs and desires. It’s a “coming home to roost” year. So play nice people.

9 – An Endings Year – During 9 years something is going to end. That might be something large, or it might be something small. Who knows? What I do know is that whatever it is it’ll involve something that mattered to you. Maybe even something you counted on. Personally, I’ve always found that whatever ended in a “9” year was something I knew, deep down in some recessed and repressed region of my subconscious, needed to end. Yep, there’s no more sweeping the dead areas of our lives under the rug hoping to deal with them later. Nope, this IS later. So it’s a pick yourself up and move on and away kind of year. I’m not much of a fan of the “9” Year. I hate endings, even when they’re good for me. Oh, and I’m not talking about, “I hate my job and I just got offered a new one” endings. Nope… I’m talking about, “I hate my job and I just got fired and am terrified” endings. Seriously.  But know, you will find something else. You will survive.

Also understand that the normal endings of the “9” involve things we’ve put off doing… so the universe steps in and makes sure we don’t remain lazy about it.

As a backdrop to these Personal Year Numbers we still have the Universal 3 in play.  How we’ll likely notice that is whatever Personal Year we’re in, we’ll find ourselves spending a great deal of the year thinking, communicating, and revising those areas of our lives this year.  We’ll make progress.  Likely a lot of it will be attributable to long overdue conversations and mutual compromises.  It’s a give and take, fair year.

Calleen’s Astrology Predictions for January 2019

By Calleen Wilder

Astrology-January-2019

January 4th – Mercury enters into Capricorn

As Mercury leaves Sagittarius and enters into Capricorn, the first thing we might notice is our minds becoming more focused on the task at hand.  And, less focused on the over-the-top dreams of last month.  We also become more determined, less comical, more centered, and yes, a tad more prone to sulk.

Sometimes Capricorn can feel like an over-critical mom.  Leaves us to think about all the things we’ve left undone or done less than perfectly.  It also makes us feel more alone.  Problem is, we tend to pull inward with Capricorn contacts, without even realizing it.  So in truth, we are more alone, but likely at our own doing.

The best use of this very stabilizing energy is simply to try to focus on the details and do the work.  Finish up old projects.  Work on anything so detail oriented you’d normally bust a vein just thinking about it, because mental patience and perseverance you will have in abundance.

You’ll be a lot more “just the facts ma’am”.  And a lot less “look at the butterflies”.  So yeah, kind of good, kind of rough, just definitely denser.

January 5th – New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

New Moons are always the best times for New Beginnings.  When the New Moon also happens to occur in the sign of Capricorn, in a very near conjunction to Saturn (which is the ruler of Capricorn), chances are real good that business and even more business will be on your mind.

There’s also a slightly beneficial aspect being made to Neptune as well, which only adds more benefit to this New Moon… particularly where artists, psychics, writers, and all the creative beings amongst us are concerned.  Granted, we might not feel as “floaty” and “inspired” and we normally do.  But, we’ll be able to sell the dickens out of anything we’ve already produced, and/or are thinking of producing.  PLUS…. we’ll be able to finish up all unfinished projects in short order.

This might also be a great time to start a new business, Full Moons always are.  Yet with this one, when you add the stick-to-it quality of Saturn to the sheer determination to succeed, anything’s possible.  Granted, you might have to work for what you get (Saturn is such a downer), but it just might become something great.

AND… if you’re thinking of starting up something that helps others, something like non-profits, charities, or really anything with scads of integrity, it’ll likely take off pretty quickly since Neptune is nothing if not on-board.

January 6th – Uranus goes Direct in the sign of Aries

Our planet of chaos and surprises is getting ready to smack us all right up side the head.  Yep!  HE’S AWAKE!  Only partially kidding.

Yet, since Uranus has been trying to get us to make some pretty major changes since he turned retrograde back in early August, he’s getting really tired of asking.  Sure, we’ve done some of the work.  Still there’s some things we’ve likely done only in our minds.  You know, trying to at least appease the beast.  Pretending to at least be thinking about it.

Well today, he’s all fired up in the very enthusiastic sign of “TRY ME” Aries.  So yeah, there’s that.  Here’s the thing: this could be a great time, particularly if you started that new business yesterday.  OR, if you’re fully prepared to move forward with all of your half-starts left laying about for the last 5 or so months.

The only thing I know for sure is that you should expect change today.  In truth, you should expect change for the next several days… maybe weeks… who knows, maybe a month.  Uranus hates to give us forewarning.  So he could make quick work of some things while taking us entirely by surprise next month with a sweeping change we thought the need had passed for.  Or we’d hidden from him (hahaha)!

Our energy will return though.  Our zest for life and just the living of it will also rebound.  We’ll jump right back in wherever we left off, and we’ll just go for it.  ONLY CAUTION IS, do try to think before you say, do, or jump from anything.  Look around.  Survey your surroundings.  Then proceed.  Provided, of course, you’re given the option of one second of a thought.

Crazy beast that Uranus is.  Aries only lights his tail.

January 7th – Venus enters Sagittarius

Today we find our planet of love and socializing moving into ever popular Sagittarius.  Sagittarius likes growth and more of everything.  Venus is usually on-board with all of the above… well, provided it’s pretty.

I’ve never met a Sagittarius who couldn’t talk to anyone about anything.  They seem to be well-versed in a variety of topics.  Which works out perfectly since Venus loves entertaining, perfectly, of course.  Thus, go on interviews, give speeches, host functions, and by all means, spread your beautiful self around.  We’ll all be feeling “quite fine” right about now.

Plus, we still have Mercury in Capricorn, which likely makes us sound intelligent to boot.  It also could curb Sagittarius’ pension for saying every little darn thing on their mind (sigh).  I guess it’ll depend upon whether you’re in your lavish mood or the more sulky “everybody picks on me” Saturn mood brought about recently.  Could be a hard call.

Just remember, nothing spoils a pitch-in more than your sharp, albeit entirely accurate critiques of Boss Bob’s string of late night dinner meetings with new Siren Secretary Stacy.  Just saying… maybe watch yourself ‘lest you blurt out all the right things at all the wrong times.

Otherwise, if you play superficially (which Venus and Sagittarius both so love to do) in the love, work, and social pools, there are large gains to be had.  So sparkle, baby.

January 13th – Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces

This little transit can get tricky real quick.  Jupiter wants to grow.  He also likes generous, benevolent actions, as does Sagittarius, Neptune and Pisces.  Problem is, this is a square (tension) aspect.

Meaning, you might be trying to promote the business idea you came up with about a week back, and suddenly everyone wants you to “prove” or “demonstrate” how your “Fight for the Flounders” crusade is actually do-able.  Wanting to also know whether the flounders themselves even want to be fought for.  Are there too few flounders?  Are the flounders sad?  And how exactly do you plan to rescue, preserve, and make the sad flounders happy?  You get it.

Why all the downers, right?

There’s also another possibility.  This possibility could be rather harsh too in that it has you tossing your cash, energy, and brain power at someone who appears to need saving, but in reality, is only looking for attention, followers, or cash.  Hence, those darned flounders (ha).

Anyway, it’s a time of reality versus vision.  Honesty versus being swindled.  Tough time.  But it’ll definitely firm up your business outline afterwards.

January 18th – Venus in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries

Now here’s a really nice transit.  We have the planet of love playing friendly with the planet of energy, assertiveness, and sex.  Two thumbs up for sure.  You’ll likely use the energy involved with this aspect in one of two ways, or hopefully, both ways.

First, you can plead your case or your cause to anyone.  Likely you’ll get exactly what you want today.  You won’t offend (thanks to Venus) even when asking direct questions (Mars).  Therefore, progress is almost assured.  Although, if you do hear a rebuttal don’t go all Sagittarius on them and list off all of their incredibly observable shortcomings.  NO.  Just thank them, walk away, and leave the door open for another day.

Secondly, you’ll almost definitely want some frisky in your Wheaties right about now.  Chances are, since you’re all charming and suave, you’re also likely to get precisely what you’re in need of.  So put on the Marvin Gaye and do your thing girl.

Good day to go after precisely what you want.

January 20th – Sun enters Aquarius

As our life giver, the Sun, enters into breezy and somewhat detached Aquarius, we’ll all begin to feel slightly removed from any emotional entanglements.  We’ll need some space, along with the freedom required, to make up our minds about pretty much of anything.  We want to step out of our lives for a minute and just observe.  Likely we’ll just take the time if it’s not offered up politely.

Our attention will be focused mainly on long-term solutions, likely in relation to our business affiliations.  Aquarius are smart, mental people who like vision, future-oriented ideas, and tons of room to move around in.  Therefore, if you began that new business and ran up against some obstacles a few days back, this is the day you’ll begin to find bigger, better, and more advanced solutions in order to move things forward.

You won’t be stopped.  You won’t be altered.  You will find your way through.  Also, since Aquarius is a social sign, you’ll present all of your ideas very proficiently.  You may even appear far smarter than you actually are.  But who cares, as long as you can get back to doing something that matters to you.

Too, group projects are encouraged.  Yes, you might want to work in your own space.  But, you’ll still find the room and the wisdom in operating for the good of many, who in turn, leave many operating for the good of you.

January 20th – Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces

Generally speaking, this aspect is rather pleasant.  It’s a dreamy, romantic, let’s light the candles and play soft music while stroking each others hair kind of thing.  It’s a relatively soft, spacey, playful type of energy.

However, it is a square, and those always have a hidden side when provoked.  In this case that might mean you end up expecting your significant other to become a white knight with the horse, sword, shield, and all… and, on the double.  Meaning, someone could fail to meet up to your expectations.  So don’t do that.

Other thing is, some relationships could actually end during this transit.  Now, that’s not the normal.  So if it happens in yours, it was long overdue and this was just the final strike of the match.  In other words, you had to know.

Mostly, it’s a laid-back, think pretty things kind of transit.  I think I’ll rent a movie and drift.  Awe…… perfection!

January 20th (Pacific) January 21st (Eastern) – Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo

Full Moons always mean Full Emotions.  During Eclipses we can expect that to about quadruple.  PLUS… last longer.  YAY for that, right?

So here’s the thing, when in Leo, we’ll all want to be petted and appreciated.  We’ll also all want to be heard.  Problem is, so does every other dang body.  I mean what the heck?  Hence, hurt feelings and pounced upon paws are likely.

Also, since this Full Moon is in a square aspect to Uranus, apple carts could be overturned in a heartbeat.  Expect then to feel anxious, edgy, untended to, bored, and more than a tad unhappy about it all.  Total rebellion is absolutely not out of the equation either.  So watch your self-righteous self!

Things could get very unpredictable today.  Moods rise, fall, and then twist sideways.  Patience is thin.  Routines are out.  All you really know is that you’re not getting enough of anything good and you want change… NOW!

Obviously, this is NOT the best day to end a relationship unless it’s been working on ending for quite some time.  Realize that sudden outbursts, jangled nerves, and hurt feelings are plentiful for everyone, including your sweet little sweetie!

YES… there could be progress, simply because Uranus is so unpredictable that he might throw all blessings your way this go-round.  AND… Uranus likes new, different, and living life.  So who knows… no one knows.

The only certainty is that the ball will veer rapidly up then down today.  Try your best to ride the tide, keep your pouty little lips closed, and as always, head held securely between the knees is always the safest position.  YIKES!  Hope it turns out good (she said almost entirely sarcastically).

January 21st – Mars in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn

So now what!  We find our planet of “nerves bundled far too tightly” arguing with the planet of our worst critic (Saturn).  Exhausting really!

The good news is this; if you can focus on one project and bring it to fruition, you could achieve major results.

The bad news is this; you likely won’t.  You could.  But you’ll be far more inclined to throw everything up against the wall to see if any of it sticks.  If it doesn’t, you’ll throw more stuff.  Until you manage to get on someone’s last nerve and the critiquing begins.  Then the torment begins.

Obviously, it’s really NOT the day to ask for a raise, apply for a job, or in truth, do anything but put your tiny little face into your tiny little cubicle and focus on the job at hand.  Still, even then, someone, who knows, maybe even you, decides you’re doing a horrible job just breathing and ends up word-shredding your dignity all over the place.

Tough day to be you… or me… or anyone else taking in oxygen.

I’ve got an idea, perhaps it’s the perfect time for renting another movie.  I do so love movies, indoors, alone time, and quiet.  Although I do tend to scold myself rather harshly far too often for my liking… so I’ll need to give myself a good talking to before today.  Fingers crossed it works out for all of us.  UGH!

January 22nd – Venus in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter also in Sagittarius

YAY… and double YAY.  This is a great, great transit.  We deserve this.  We find the two most beneficial planets sitting on top of one another.  If you have your natal chart figure out what house this happens in and expect growth and abundance in that area of your life.

But, even if you don’t have your chart, know this brings pleasant moods, improved relationships at work, home, and play, and often, more money.  Sometimes advancements, job placements, and all sorts of delicious goodies come our way when these two are hugging.

My best guess is, we’ve paid some serious dues over the last few days.  We’ve argued, cried, and likely stretched our last nerve all of of proportion.  So today the Universal Gods smiled down on us and said, “let there be light, parties, food, festivities, and merriment for all”.

So go apply, try, make-up, make-out, and do absolutely groovy things today.  It’s a great day.  OH… and buy one lottery ticket.  If you’re going to win one is enough.  And yes, it’s entirely possible.  But this only lasts for one day, so make it count.

January 23rd/24th – Mercury enters Aquarius

Mercury leaves somber Capricorn and enters into expansive Aquarius.  What this will likely having all of us doing is observing the progress we’ve made so far this month.  First evaluating it, then perfecting it.  THEN… moving on to dream of new and bigger projects.

Aquarius stabilizes our mind while also ushering in a great deal of optimism.  We also become fluent on most topics, so writing and speaking are highlighted.  We feel positive, outgoing, less emotional, and far more in the drivers seat right now.

This is the perfect day to think big and actually figure out how to make it all come together.  We can see the big picture much more clearly now.

We have about a month of this, so make it work for you.

January 25th – Mars in Aries trines Jupiter in Sagittarius

Another great day.  Our energy planet unites nicely with our planet of growth, optimism, and spirituality.  You’ll feel excellent.  You’ll feel healthy.  Your muscles are likely coming along quite nicely my dear, thanks to Mr. Mars.

Therefore, it’s the perfect day to promote yourself.  Ask for the raise, the promotion, the loan, the marriage.  Ask for whatever it is you want.  You have brawn, brains, and beauty all on your side today… along with the planet who knows just how to ask for more of everything, please.  So ask.

Many people think of this as a lucky day, and maybe it is.  I tend to think of it as a day where you have a broader vision of the overall picture.  You see the strengths and the weaknesses.  Too, today you have the willingness and ability to perfect the plan.  So luck?  Maybe.  Objective insight?  Definitely.

It’s a good day for any project, be it personal or business.  It’s simply a good day.

January 31st – Saturn in Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces

This is not a big transit, but it’s a nice one to end the month on.  what we have is our planet of duty and obligation, in the sign of duty and obligation, providing us the “opportunity” to make progress with anything worthwhile (Neptune) and hopefully, somewhat creative (Pisces).

It’s not a totally light day.  Rather, it’s the perfect balance of altruistic and realistic.  It’s a blend of heavy and sweet, determined and inspired, dutiful yet beneficial.  It’s a day where if you make any effort to further along anything truly important to you, especially if it’s pleasing to others as well, you can make some serious headway.

You have balance right now.  You have the desire to build something great, along with the tools to do just that.  So get on with it!

What 2019 Has in Store for You, Based on Your Chinese Zodiac Sign

By Taylor Markarian

Will the year of the Earth Pig be your year to shine? Or does 2019 spell disaster?

Chinese Horoscope 2019

The key to understanding 2019 lies in the natural element the year belongs to: Earth. As 2018 was the year of the Earth Dog, this new year will be the year of the Earth Pig, according to the Chinese zodiac. What that means is that the new Chinese year will encapsulate the nature of the pig—sturdy, determined, generous—in a way that is more grounded than, for example, it would manifest in a Fire year. The coming year, 2019, will see a steady increase in wealth and more room for growth than 2018. Find out which astrological sign you are most compatible with.

Next year of the Rat: 2020

The year of the Rat follows the year of the Pig in 2020. In 2019, though, those who are the Chinese zodiac Rat will still fare quite well. According to ChineseFortuneCalendar.com, the Rat and the Pig make successful partners in more ways than one. They compliment and help each other in both business and social settings. The Rat provides keen intellect whereas the Pig provides reliability and the ability to follow through with action.

The Ox and the Pig are actually quite similar: Both are sturdy and reliable. The major difference between the two, however, is that the Ox can sometimes be a little too strong-willed or stubborn. The year of the Pig will be a fortunate year for the Ox, so long as the Ox is able to keep its strength in check. Consider all decisions carefully and you will be rewarded.

Next year of the Tiger: 2022

One of the most perfect romantic matches for the Pig is the Tiger, states TravelChinaGuide.com. Thus, 2019 will see the Tiger’s love life and personal relationships blossom. The feisty character of the Tiger will be humbled by the year of the Earth Pig, though, so expect some crucial teaching moments this year.

Next year of the Snake: 2025

In Chinese astrology, Snakes and Pigs are extreme opposites. There is always tension between the two Chinese zodiac signs on virtually every level. While 2019 will be a prosperous year in general, the Snake will have to overcome obstacles at nearly every turn before finally earning their reward. Learn how to de-stress according to your zodiac sign.

Next year of the Horse: 2026

Like many of the other Chinese zodiac signs, the Horse will have a fine time of it in 2019. The same kind of advice given to the Ox can also be given to the Horse: Keep the stronger points of your personality balanced. Horses can become giddy and self-centered, so keep calm as the year of the Earth Pig necessitates.

 

Chinese Horoscope 2019

Birth years of the Goat: 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

Next year of the Goat: 2027

Like the Tiger, the Goat aligns very well with the Pig in terms of romantic connection. Pigs and Goats share the same loving, gentle nature. Relationships will flourish this year for the Goat. Still, people under this Chinese zodiac sign can be emotionally temperamental at times, and the Pig won’t respond well to moody behavior in 2019.

Birth years of the Monkey: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016

Next year of the Monkey: 2028

Pigs dislike Monkeys as much as they dislike Snakes, but for different reasons. The Monkey is far too chaotic for the steadfast Pig, who enjoys stability over restless energy. Where the Earth Pig demands patience, the Monkey has none. This is why 2019 will cause the Monkey to reflect inwardly for the first time in a while, and provide the opportunity for personal growth.

 

Chinese Horoscope 2019

Birth years of the Rooster: 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017

Next year of the Rooster: 2029

Roosters will thrive in 2019. The year of the Earth Pig provides the stability the Rooster needs to get off the ground, especially financially. 2019 will give these people the solid ground they need to build their empires, which the hardworking, diligent Rooster is naturally good at accomplishing. Find out the luckiest birthdates for every sign of the Chinese zodiac.

 

Chinese Horoscope 2019

Birth years of the Dog: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018

Next year of the Rooster: 2030

If you were born in a year of the Dog, you are most likely exiting a challenging 2018. While life will improve in the year of the Earth Pig, you will still have to work hard to change your fortunes. Instant change will not happen this year. 2019 will consist of gradual shifts instead.

12 Numerology: Meaning and Significance

By LJ Innes

Since we’re all entering into a 12/3 Numerology Year next year (2+0+1+9) I thought this was very worth the sharing.  Naturally, we all have our own Personal Life Year as well.  Still, this is the backdrop.  It is the Universal Year for us all.  Thus, I’m sharing.  (Calleen)

12 Numerology

Expanding Your Consciousness With Numerology

Discovering the magic and mystery surrounding numerology is like learning a new language that also expands your consciousness. Numerology is all about awareness. It’s like decoding a dream or lifting a veil too. In this article, we’ll explore the meanings behind 12 numerology.

12 Numerology in Art, History, and Religion

Before we look at 12 numerology, let’s see how the number 12 has played a significant role in history, art, religion, and our everyday lives. In both the western and Chinese zodiacs there are 12 signs. There are 12 months in a calendar year. We typically go through 12 years of school. Even our 24-hour clock is made up of two 12-hour parts. In religious history, there are 12 days of Christmas, 12 apostles, and the 12 tribes of Israel. 12 is the number of basic hues in the standard color wheel. 12 people have walked on the face of the Moon also. Even in our legal system, a jury consists of 12 jurors. King Arthur’s court had 12 knights and William Shakespeare wrote a comedy called “Twelfth Night” too. There are even more 12 references, but you get the idea.

12 Numerology and Growth

In numerology, the number 12 represents growth from the physical to the spiritual realm and vice-versa. The number 1 symbolizes beginnings. The number 2 symbolizes growth and development. Added together, 3 is the symbol of rebirth as we pass from one realm to the other. 12 numerology clearly has a connection to the human life cycle.

The Double- and Single-Digit Numbers

Although we often reduce double digits to single digits in numerology, the double-digit numbers have meaning too. 12 numerology represents the highly creative and artistic. 12 is a number of “self” versus a group. If you were born on the 12th, you have a talent for writing and speaking. Your 12 numerology makes you a great salesperson too.

12 Numerology in Life

Also in numerology, the number 12 represents completion. A quick look at the date 12/12 throughout history supports that idea. For instance, it was on 12/12/00 that General Motors began to phase out its 103-year old Oldsmobile brand. On 12/12/89, the “Queen of Mean,” Leona Helmsley, was sentenced to prison for tax evasion. When she passed away in 2007, she left $12 million to her dog.

12 Numerology in Creation

The number 12, it’s also a number of our creation. It’s in everything from complex calculations to carbon-12, found in our bodies. Without looking very hard, we can find 12 numerology all around us. Like a 12-volt battery, everything and everyone is energy and we are all connected to the cosmos. Are you starting to feel more of a connection now too?

Astrology Transits for December 2018

Calleen Wilder

Below are the Astrology Transits for December 2018.  These are over-all transits that apply to ALL Sun Signs.

December AstrologyDecember 1st – Mercury in Scorpio

Mercury is still Retrograde, but is re-entering the sign of Scorpio today, due to its backward motion.

Mercury Retrograde always means communication glitches, computer failures, mail loss, traffic foul-ups, and in general, people doing stupid people stuff. It feels as if everyone is in your way ALL THE TIME, and when confronted, they have no explanation as to why. They may not even realize they’re in your way at all. Thing is, we’re all very confused and self-involved. So perhaps, you’re actually in their way. Ever thought about that? HA!

When in Scorpio, you guessed it, people are going to get ticked off far more easily than normal. Fuses grow short, tempers grow volatile, and memories for mistakes grow LONG.

So think before you speak, confront, cut someone off, and likely, bumble your crazy self around in front of others without ever even realizing it. SIGH! I’m already SO over this.

December 2nd – Venus enters into Scorpio

Venus is NOT happy in the sign of Scorpio. Venus is sociable, superficially affectionate, and nearly always polite, mannerly, and politically correct. Scorpio, on the other hand, is none of these things.
Scorpio is aggressive, sometimes forceful, and without even so much as one shadow of a doubt, passionate.

As a result, we’ll likely all find our love nature coming much more sharply into focus. Bottom line is, we want what we want when we want it, along with precisely how we want it. And pity the fool who decides to try to alter our desires. Somewhat scary, right?

Good thing is, we’ll all be far more open to all sorts of new kinds of strange and unusual things. Bad thing is, others might find us alarming, off-putting, and more than a tad alarming.

Perhaps then you can simply try to balance your external force with your internal needs, as well as keep a few of those thoughts of yours to yourself, and things could go quite nicely. You may even find out some of your sweetie’s deepest and darkest truths.

Just make sure you’re actually up for a truly open and honest discussion or exchange before you ante up. People will take you up on whatever you even slightly “put out on the table”.

Remember too, moderation isn’t a bad word… it’s a necessary ingredient to a healthy and mutually satisfying relationship. It also tones down the crazy a notch or two when needed.

December 6th – Mercury goes Direct

Thank the powers that be. We all are truly in need of some sense. We also need to be able to order and receive our packages. As well as remember how to hold our tongues at family gathering, and simply simmer versus boil. We need to once again begin to make some sense when we speak, as well as curtail the incessant ramblings (yes, me). And yes, we need to be able to say what we mean and have others understand it.

Granted, Mercury’s still in Scorpio. Meaning, faux pas’ are possible and likely semi-frequent. STILL, everyone will fully understand what we are passionately professing right now. I think that’s likely good.

Plus, our computers, electricity, phones, and jangled minds are starting to purr in a logical direction one more. Or at the very least, in our “normal” direction.

Now remember, it generally takes a couple of days for all things communication-oriented to fall back in line, also for people to start driving in their lanes again.

Yet we do see a ray of hope today that our world will once again begin spinning in a somewhat predictable fashion. I take comfort in that.

December 7th – Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces

Mars is the planet of activity, aggression, and ego projection. Neptune is the planet of music, artists, love of our fellow man, and Kumbayah. So yeah, these two planets don’t play nicely with one another.

How you’ll likely experience it, unfortunately, is as further confusion. You may even feel a touch more tired than normal. Problem is, you want to achieve something magnificent (Mars), but your body, heart, and soul wants to sing songs, donate kidneys, and carve something exceptional in your bed post (yep, Neptune). Thus, you’re pulled in many directions simultaneously.

My advice is do NOT start anything new. Unless, and this is the only exception, it has to do with volunteering your time or doing something incredibly nice for others. In other words, let Neptune have his way. The only condition I might add is that whatever it is you do, it cannot be self-serving. You simply cannot expect anything in return. If you do, it won’t work out and you’ll end up ego shamed.

Personally, I’ll stay in, nurse old wounds, and watch movies maybe. Hard day!

December 7th – New Moon in Sagittarius

New Moons always represent New Action. Again though remember, we have Mars conjuncting Neptune today, so I really would put off anything major or even anything majorly new for a few days.

Now you could stay home, draw up lists, make plans, and think lots of new thoughts (Sagittarius does so love dreaming). Just make sure before you take much action you give it a few days. Also make sure to go review those plans before enacting them a couple of days from now. If you do, I’ll almost guarantee you’ll discover some pretty glaring discrepancies you would have missed entirely otherwise.

AND, since I’ve always found any type of major Moon activity has us all in our feelings, expect it. Because even if you stay in and read a book, you’ll likely be caught up in all the feelings of the past (Moon) and hopes for the future (Sagittarius). There could be tears, torment, and turbulence.

December 12th – Mercury enters into Sagittarius

Now that Mercury has decided to set his hat on right, he’s only further demonstrating his quick wit and keen sense of direction by entering into the sign of always progressive Sagittarius.

As many of us know, Sagittarius is very nearly always positive in nature. It also adores new ideas and dreams of the future. However, it does not always love the details so much. Nor does it have one ounce of patience for political correctness or dancing around any issue.

Meaning, double check all of your work, ideas, and communication. Otherwise there will be things left undone. Too, try to at least let your words marinate in your brain for a hyper-second or two before you spew them out. Yes, people may need to hear the truth. Yet sprinkling it with a touch of compassion, mercy, and kindness never hurts. Saves on bandages as well.

In the end though, feelings will get hurt and irrational moves will get made. But even with that said, we’ll all likely be feeling pretty dandy about ourselves. We’re just weirdly funny and positively oblivious to some of the outcomes.

It’ll be a day full of surprises. Could be fun. Could be kind of scary. Truly up to you.

December 21st – Winter Solstice as Sun Enters Capricorn

Today we might find all the hopeful ideas of the past month settling into a rather predictable, and definitively more well-thought-out version of themselves.

We’ll find ourselves wanting to fill in any holes in our thinking as we begin to find the best, most assured way of making progress toward future goals. In other words, we begin to put the work in. We begin to think things through, scribble out budgets, make contacts, and actually put a workable plan into place.

Granted, this isn’t nearly as much fun as the last month has been. Yet it is far more realistic and productive. Who knows, we might even figure out a way to “get there from here” over the next month.

As always, the Winter Solstice simply ushers in a time of quiet evaluation. A time for planning for next year. It’s a time of evaluating how far we’ve come, what we accomplished, as well as not only where we want to go, but actually drawing up a map to get there. It’s a very needed internal time that creates space inside of us to realistically project “where next”.

The Capricorn Sun simply gives us the patience and perseverance to carry it out. Work, work, work as the song says.

December 22nd – Full Moon in Cancer

Full Moons are the Full Emotions time. In Cancer, multiply that statement by a couple hundred. Yes, we’ll all be very aware of how and what we feel. We may not be entirely sure how we got here or why we feel as we do, we’ll only know that we do.

Great thing about Cancer is it also ushers in compassionate understanding for others. Hence, we won’t be entirely self-involved. We’ll feel “all the feels” for pretty much of everyone. Overwhelming? Perhaps. Kind hearted? Definitely.

Consequently, expect an emotional day. Expect emotions you thought were either long gone or properly suppressed to rise up in just the most urgent of fashions… perhaps even provoked by the most unusual of things (if anything at all).

Expect too to not be able to properly contain yourself, but rather find a need to “go with the flow” regardless of whether you’re at the in-laws or in a department store dressing room when the blue in the shirt brings out the blue in your heart.

Seriously… just go with it. You won’t really have another choice anyway. Too, provided no one gets hurt in your “processing” moments, it’s all good… all needed.

Know too, home and family will be KEEN on your mind and in your heart. Things will get mended. Some things might also get broken… but usually only if they already were.

Emotional day full of births, tears, revelations, and emotion-filled interactions.

Just in time for Christmas… (she said somewhat sarcastically and somewhat relieved… again, not exactly sure how I feel about this… but too, it’ll depend on the “home and family quality” you have surrounding you). Hard call.

December 31st – Mars enters Aries

Okay… so this wraps up the month nicely. Mars, the planet of energy and thrust, enters into the sign it rules, Aries, who also happens to be full of energy and thrust.

Therefore, expect to finish up &/or complete anything you’ve left dangling. You want action that produces results today. You feel brave, strong, determined, and ready to start, as well as finish, all things that need attention.

It’s a kick-behind and take-names kind of day. You won’t be rude or ruthless. Rather, you’ll be determined and motivated. You will take action. In fact, this’ll last for about a month and a half. As a result, the New Year will get off to a fabulous, or at the very least, energetic start.

DO party in moderation. DO call Uber. DON’T get so over-confident from this feel good energy that you set yourself up for failure. Just know, you’re going to be “doing some stuff” over the coming month provided you keep yourself in-line and within some sensible boundaries tonight.

Play hard and yet responsibly.

What a great way to kick of the New Year.

And that about sums up the major aspects for the month of December. It’s a somewhat confusing, somewhat defining month. A time for expressing emotions, clearing up any old debris in your life, and then making plans for what comes next.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

Enjoy your home, family, cleared up mental state, and full throttle emotional expressions this month has ushered in. Love your people. And naturally, let go of anything no longer serving your growth.

It is the end of an 11/2 Universal Year. A year about working at a Master Level on all one-on-one relationships. Thus, if there’s something or someone you need to wrangle up, get out your lasso. Too though, if there’s someone you need to disentangle from your life, proceed accordingly. Release the old to prepare for the new. 2019 should prove to be an easier year on all of us… but we’ll talk more about that at the end of the month.
