December will be both a powerful and an eventful month. It starts out with a bang, with the Full Moon on 12/3, which will form a T-Cross with Neptune in Pisces, squaring the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon in Gemini. We can expect a time of confusion, illusion, denial, fancy dancing and spin doctoring galore, since Neptune rules all of those things. The news should be even more entertaining, with additional lies revealed. Grab your popcorn. On the same day, Mercury goes Retrograde, the last time this year. Perfect.
The 4th and 5th have the Moon in nurturing Cancer, forming some lovely aspects, creating hope and optimism. 12/8 is fabulous, with a Grand Trine in Fire, with the Sun in Sagittarius, the Moon in Leo, Mercury in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. Wow. Fire inspires, it cleanses and purifies, it is the Element of alchemy. This is a wonderful day for intention work, a Phoenix day. Rise up, and be the light of the world. I love that Rumi quote, reminding us that in order to be a candle, a lighthouse, or a Phoenix, one must have the courage to burn.
The Moon goes into Scorpio on the 13th, Hanukkah, making some nice aspects, along with the Geminids meteor showers. The 14th is also good. The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 18th is beautiful. It conjuncts to Saturn , adding wisdom and patience to the intense fire of Sagittarius.
The Winter Solstice on 12/21, as the Sun enters Capricorn, heralds the beginning of winter. I’ve always found it to be enormously powerful and spiritual, a link to the mystical and supernatural. Light some candles, some incense, sage, or essential oils for an inner journey.
Mercury goes direct on 12/22, with the Ursids meteor showers punctuating that. 12/23 and 12/24 are beautiful, with the Moon in mystical Pisces connecting to Venus, generating a feeling of peace and love, perfect to usher in Christmas.
The 28th is spectacular, with the Moon in Taurus positively aspecting a number of planets, closing out the month on a high vibrational note.
Sagittarius is the sign of the archer, the centaur, the philosopher. The keywords are “ I Perceive “. It is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of faith, hope, and Sacred Law. May this month bring all of those things, and more, along with a much needed healing to the world which sorely needs it. Sending you all of the bright blessings, light, and prayers for a happy Hanukkah, lovely Solstice, and very merry Christmas, wherever you are. Peace, Judith
