DECEMBER 20, 2018
The Winter Solstice! December 21st, 2018 at 5:23 pm! The shortest day of the year! More dark than light! Time to go within! The Fall Season ends and the Winter Season begins as the Sun moves into Capricorn. The Full Moon on the 22nd is emphasizing this depth and the need to get in touch to bring your life into balance.
This Full Moon will bring us together. It is all about home, family, friends and belonging. Let’s get it together and celebrate how far we have come and where we came from. This is a very nostalgic Full Moon full of feeling. Celebrating the moment and grateful for where we are. This whole year has required flexibility, focus, and adaptability as we move toward change. This turning point is a welcome sight.
A FULL MOON WILL OCCUR on DECEMBER 22, 2018 at 12:47 PM EST at 00 DEGREES CANCER 49 MINUTES.
THE SIGN CANCER:
The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. It rules the breast and the stomach. The house ruled by Cancer shows where, moved by emotion, you seek out experiences, which secure your Aries identity and build foundations in your personal life. You protect this area of your life like a mother protecting her young. You function in this area with “gut feeling”.
A Full Moon in Cancer brings home, family, and security to our attention. The Moon is the ruler and it is in opposition to Saturn in Capricorn. The Sun is joined with Saturn in Capricorn. That conjunction will be exact and start a new yearly cycle between the Sun and Saturn on January 2nd. This gets us started on what needs defining and where goals need to be set. A Full Moon brings things to a head and with Saturn involved you must stay focused on what is important. A lot of emotional issues may surface at this time to be dealt with. Pluto is also in Capricorn intensifying the need to know what you want within the circumstances to be dealt with. Pluto has been in Capricorn for 10 years and has 6 years to go. Pluto’s job is to eliminate what is no longer working and purify what is there so we know what we are dealing with. Mercury is with Jupiter in Sagittarius bringing greater understanding to the situation. By the way, Uranus is back in Aries for a little reminder. Uranus will move into Taurus for 8 years on March 6th. It has been in Aries for 8 years helping or encouraging us to be more of ourselves. Uranus left Aries May 15th to move into Taurus to give a sneak preview of what it will be like in Taurus. Now Uranus is back in Aries until March 6th, 2019. Just a little help from a friend. This may just be the boost we need to get things moving. Uranus is the highest degree Planet in a sign now which shows the outcome of what we take on. Uranus is all about change that brings freedom from the limitations of the past. This has been working on you for a few years. This is probably when you are ready for the new energy. Happy New Year!
THE SABIAN SYMBOL: A FURLED AND UNFURLED FLAG DISPLAYED FROM A VESSEL.
This is a symbol of the extremes to which an individual will go in the practical allegiances with which he meets the various situations in life, and of his capacity to compromise or reverse any stand he may take whenever this suits his ultimate ends. Here is his inflexible determination to further every ambition, and his consistent preparation for every eventuality that might be anticipated. He is unhappy except as he somehow can feel himself safely a step ahead of himself. The keyword is ADAPTABILITY. When positive, the degree is a gift for highly profitable adjustment in every developing relationship with others, and when negative, vacillation if not complete instability. “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones.
