December 2014 -- Happy Holidays!

*The world is feeling the 1 vibration in December. With the yearly vibration for the world still "7", anything new this month will be something that has a fated quality about it. Standing on your two feet and taking responsibility for the consequences of your actions will be the focus. With Saturn leaving Scorpio, Uranus stationing direct and Jupiter stationing retrograde, things may seem a little jumbled at times. With the holiday season in full swing, it will be an incredibly busy month.

Moons
Dec 06: Full Moon in Gemini 14 degrees (contracts,communications highlighted)
Dec 21: New Moon in Capricorn 0 degrees (banks, financial institutions, budgets government and the elderly…all highlighted for the next month)

Daily
Dec 01-10
Dec 04: Mars enters Aquarius – helping others is important
Dec 08: Jupiter stations retrograde in Leo at 23 degrees
Dec 10: Venus enters Capricorn – love is cautious and "practical", interest in business increases

Dec 01: December begins with the moon in ARIES.. known to be implusive, aggressive and sometimes explosive. Protect your head from injuries. Headaches are common. Late afternoon brings yucky energy so drive safely. Wear black today to neutralize the strong energy. If you want your hair to grow back quickly after a haircut, skip today and tomorrow.

Dec 02: The moon continues to move through firery ARIES. Things are calmer than yesterday and yet there is a strong urge to push forward in spite of warnings. Patience is your friend. The moon enters VOID at 9:42pmET

Dec 03: The moon moves from VOID into TAURUS right after midnight bringing a feeling of practicality to everyday activities. Do NOT overspend, overeat or overdo under this energy. It is easy to do. Any throat problems should be checked. Wear the color blue today to match the practical side of this moon.

Dec 04: Change is in the air today worldwide. Mars dances into AQUARIUS and adds to the building energy for the full moon Saturday. The moon is still in TAURUS enhancing music and art. Enjoy a concert or simply listening to music today. Leo sun signs may just enjoy this day but it may be too much energy for AQUARIUS sun signs.

Dec 05: The energy is high. The moon shifts into GEMINI early morning. Communications of all kinds increases. There could be delays (more than usual) with mail carriers, satellite transmissions, etc and may flow over into tomorrow. Contracts of all kinds are highlighted. The color yellow is a great choice for today.

Dec 06: The full moon in GEMINI occurs today at 7:27amET. Be careful your fingers are not in too many pies or you will lose the forward thrust needed to be successful. Enjoy being with others, sending emails, making phone calls/texts. Stay away from and be wary of gossip. It will not benefit you.

Dec 07: The moon enters VOID at 4:52amET slowing down the energy of the past few days before it moves into CANCER at 12:34pmET. The afternoon is more reflective and focused on home and family ties. Emotional sensitivity increases. Wear something bright today to lift your spirits. Today and tomorrow are excellent days to have your hair cut if you want it to grow back fast and thick!

Dec 08: The moon is still in the nurturing sign of CANCER. JUPITER stations RETROGRADE in Leo at 23 degrees. The energy is uneven and could cause emotional outbursts. Stay centered. Be careful with spending.

Dec 09: With the moon still in CANCER the day moves along quite smoothly after the crazy energy from yesterday. In the evening at 7:14pmET the moon will shift into VOID until 10:14pmET when it enters LEO.

Dec 10: The moon in LEO, VENUS moves into CAPRICORN. This is a touch and go kind of day. On the one hand everyone wants to play and on the other everyone wants their bank accounts to be positive! Caution is indicated. Something too good to be true probably isnt!

Dec 11-20
Dec 14-16: DIFFICULT DAYS – Unpredictable, powerful, explosive energy
Dec 16: Mercury enters into Capricorn – the thinking is more serious and practical
Dec 20: Overload of energy builds for new moon tomorrow

Dec 11: The moon is still in fun loving and romantic LEO. This is a pretty good day to have some fun. SCORPIO sun signs may not feel too friendly and my feel like being left alone. Otherwise, enjoy the day.

Dec 12: The moon enters VOID at 7:48amET and quickly moves into VIRGO at 10:19amET. Caution and service are key words for the day. Clean closets, clean out your file drawers, organize your work, clean your house/car. These tasks are made for today. It is also a great day to serve others in some way. PISCES sun signs feel a little drained and should avoid criticism today.

Dec 13: The moon continues in VIRGO giving us another day to clean and serve! This is an excellent time for health checkups, car tuneups and anything that requires attention to detail including paying bills. Christmas shopping may seem like more of a chore than fun. Maybe you should stay home and wrap gifts, clean or maybe bake cookies to give those who have been there for you in the past.

Dec 14: The moon stays another day in VIRGO until 9:11pmET when it enters VOID. The energy isnt as cooperative as the last few days but you will still be able to accomplish a great deal if you are organized. Stay on top of that to-do list!! You will be very glad you did.

Dec 15: The moon shifted into LIBRA overnight and brought strong yucky energy with it. By afternoon this wave of energy should settle and the rest of the day will feel better. This is the time for a facial, car detailing, finding that special "pretty" gift. ARIES sun signs would do well to focus on work and compromise.

Dec 16: With the moon still in LIBRA and Mercury entering CAPRICORN, the gift buying may be focused on practical things versus "pretty" things. That is not a bad things as your bank account will benefit.

Dec 17: The moon is VOID from midnight until 9:52amET when it slithers into SCORPIO. The energy is rather smooth and ambitious today. Everyone seems quieter but there is a lot accomplished today. Frugal energy lingers in the air and is enhanced by the SCORPIO moon. Not too bad for staying on track with your budget!

Dec 18: The moon is again in SCORPIO and the day moves along easy and rather quiet. LEO sun signs are not happy with the energy so it is best to avoid too much conversation today.

Dec 19: The moon is in SCOIRPIO until 4:11pmET when it goes VOID for only a few minuites, enetering SAGITTARIUS at 4:55pmET. The shift of energy from quiet and deep to blunt and sometimes even caustic could create a rift in the early am. After that the desire to travel, explore and dream becomes strong.

Dec 20: With the moon in SAGITTARIUS and numerous energy blips AND the building of energy for the New Moon tomorrow, this might be one of those headliner days!! Thankfully, the energy peaks midday and rolls until almost midnight. Whew… it could be a very tiring day, especially for GEMINI sun signs.

Dec 21-31
Dec 21-22: Winter Solstice Sun moves into Capricorn with the New Moon at a ZERO degree… AND Uranus stations Direct - Energy is high and unstable and the moon is VOID (expect the unexpected, things do not come down as planned). Uranus direct is good news for Aquarius sun signs!
Dec 23: SATURN LEAVES SCORPIO (YEA) and enters Sagittarius until Dec 2017 The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was late 1985 into early 1988.
Dec 25: Christmas Day – MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
Dec 31: New Year's Eve

Dec 21: NEW MOON in CAPRICORN at ZERO Degree –WINTER SOLSTICE- URANUS stations Direct, and the moon is VOID from 7:35amET until 8:25pmET…expect unexpected!! The money markets jiggle.

Dec 22: Moon in CAPRICORN brings about a "stark" view of events. Court cases today will not see much in the way of compassion. Banks and financial institutions will feel the unfolding of the New Moon energy. There is much to do today. Govt and govt workers will be in the news or highlighted in some way. CANCER sun signs feel out of sync and could use a day off from work The moon goes VOID at 10:17pmET.

Dec 23: SATURN moves into SAGITTARIUS for the first time since 1988! Alert for Sagittarius!! More on this in January Forecast. The moon is still VOID and remains VOID all day until 9:52pmET. Expect the unexpected to happen. Some events could be startling and involve foreign countries or people, colleges, the higher courts/judges, etc.

Dec 24: Christmas Eve has the moon in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius. This is a good energy for the eve of Christmas. There is puzzling energy late in the day and early evening that could cause problems with travel as well as communication systems. Double check all travel itineraries and be prepared for delays/changes.

Dec 25: MERRY CHRISTMAS! The moon begins the day still in Aquarius and then enters VOID at 10:11am for the rest of the day until almost midnight. Things usually do not come down as planned under a VOID moon so keep this in mind if you have plans with family/friends and allow extra time in case of delays. Dec 26: The moon moved into shy and sensitive PISCES last night. This is a welcomed day to allow the energy from all that has happened so far in Dec to quietly diffuse. Today is a caring for others day. Enjoy it. On another note, there could be issues involving water/oil/liquids, including snow/ice.

Dec 27: The moon is in PISCES this morning until 10:44amET when it goes VOID for the rest of the day. Another quiet, expect the unexpected day! Thankfully, the energies are more blended as not as disruptive. Relax… get ready for the New Year!

Dec 28: The moon shifts into ARIES at 1:35amET. This is aggressive energy. It is known for impatience. Count to 10, keep tempers under control. This is a good day to work out as long as you do so in moderation and avoid injury to the head. Headaches are common under this moon energy.

Dec 29: The moon remains in ARIES all day until 7:46pmET when it enter VOID. There is a mixed bag of energies today. Some easy, some challenging… normal, I would say except for the fact there is that firery ARIES moon. Fires, explosions, etc are increased. Be careful around fire arms and sharp instruments.

Dec 30: The moon shifted into TAURUS at 5:56amET and brings grounding to the energy from the past week. Watch the money markets for signs of an upswing. Check your budget. Maintain a moderate eating and drinking day.

Dec 31: New Year's Eve... The moon closes the month and year in TAURUS with little fanfare other than to open the door for changes worldwide where money and the EARTH is concerned. It is New Year's Eve. Be extra cautious about overdoing anything, including eating and drinking. Be happy, be blessed and let the good times roll ... into 2015 and "8" vibration for the world.

Eclipses

Retrograde Planets
When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

Jupiter: Dec 08 - April 08 2015 Jupiter is a benefic planet bringing a cushion in times of falls, luck in times unexpected. It is like having an angel on your should when it is in your sun sign. Jupiter can also bring legal matters into focus. Religions, higher institutions of learning, foreign places and people, judges and court rulings are all ruled by Jupiter. When it is retrograde, it pulls back or reduces the energy. It becomes weak. It is still active, just not as strong. If you are involved in any of the above mentioned subjects, these could slow down or be put on hold until Jupiter returns to full power in April. This slowdown allows time for review of what has already occurred. The sign of Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. If you are born under this sign, you may feel as though you are a little slower than usual during this retrograde period. Use the time wisely to "catch up" and be ready to push forward once the retrograde period is over.

Uranus: July 21 - Dec 21 in Aries Uranus rules the unexpected and unpredictable energies.  It rules the sign of Aquarius sun sign, electricity, automobiles, assassination attempts, earthquakes,, astrology, Bohemian, and Russia to name a few.  When it is retrograde, Uranus gives the topics/countries that it rules, time for review, reconsideration.  It also holds back some of its strength in order to allow for this.  It’s like slowing down as you approach an intersection to give you time to make sure you know which direction you want to go.  With Uranus in Aries (unexpected, impulsive), this is actually a good thing as it pulls the energy back to a more manageable level.

Void of Course Moon (VOC or VOID)
When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods - which can last a few minutes or a few days - it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people, etc.

I feel that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is also an element of LUCK associated with this void energy...use it wisely.

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays.

Transiting Planets
If the slower moving planets connect with one of your personal planets during 2014 (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars), energy will develop to bring about a needed event or change. So, it is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good “connection”.  Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will energize in 2014:

Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately a year in each sign. Jupiter moved into the sign of LEO in July shifting the spotlight to those who are world leaders, famous sports figures and anyone in the arts/entertainment industry.  This is a positive energy for LEO sun signs.  Watch inflated egos and overconfidence.

Saturn takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. It is in Scorpio now and continues in Scorpio until December 2014 when it leaves and enters Sagittarius. Before it leaves Scorpio, it will retrograde back into the higher degrees of Scorpio for very short periods before leaving Scorpio finally in Jan 2015. Saturn's energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health crisis that requires discipline and focus to overcome. It is the COMMITMENT KING. Commitments made during a transiting aspect of Saturn to your personal planets have endurance energy initiated. Not bad for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are a Scorpio sun sign or ascendant OR a Taurus sun sign or ascendant. Scorpio is the sign opposite Taurus. This opposition touches the Taurus sun signs with Saturn energy also just not as intense as what Scorpio feels. It CAN feel oppressive having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but it doesn't have to be felt that way. Saturn can also restrict us in some way, i.e. sprained ankle, sick, etc. With the ability to focus and accomplish, use Saturn's positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly.

Uranus in Aries will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 8 degrees Aries to 16 degrees in 2014. It does retrograde during the year and in Dec 2014 it will have retrograded back to 12 degrees Aries.   If you have a planet in your astro chart at 9-16 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2014. Libra sun signs born Oct 3 – 10 will feel this energy as an opposing force.  It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries.  You could suddenly quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even decide to change residence when this happens.  The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43.  Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions!  Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenging the signs of Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune in Pisces will move from 3 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2014. It will be retrograding and back to 4 degrees by Dec 2014.  It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it.  Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and things like the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love!  Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery.  Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto in Capricorn will transit 11, 12 and 13 degrees of Capricorn in 2014. Those born the first 5 days of January will feel this transit more directly. Any planet you may have in your astrological chart that is at the degrees mentioned, will feel the transformative power of Pluto. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, and big business to name a few. The same applies to those Cancer sun signs born the first week of July; or anyone who has Cancer planets at 11, 12 or 13 degrees. Because Capricorn and Cancer are action oriented signs, Pluto’s transit will create strong desires for action, not just thinking. Capricorn creates harsh aspects to Aries and Libra but if they use the energy to accomplish and keep irritations under control, they will succeed! Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong.  Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. These may be headliners in 2014.  The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible.  A word to the wise should be sufficient.  Virgo and Taurus – fellow earth signs of Capricorn – should find the transformations and changes, very positive and smooth.

Be blessed always!
