Sextile energies are typically harmonious, yet assertive communication between two planets, energizing the connection with a little more caffeinated buzz. Mars in Sagittarius sextile Mercury in Aquarius is a stimulating aspect where conversations, mental work, creative problem solving, planning and plotting out a future adventure, or travelling and exploring in general are attractive. Ideas can be more openly discussed and actions taken in the spirit of the restless sextile that is looking for an outlet to plug into. Use it to your advantage and think out loud today. Monday the Moon moves into Pisces and floats towards Venus and Neptune squaring Mars in Sagittarius, which energetically cools the intensity, that Mercury /Mars fired up on Saturday.
A New Moon is a conjunction between the Sun and the Moon, this merging to the exact degree has powerful strength as an aspect. New Moons symbolize the beginning of lunar cycle, where we can clear out the recent past and set a new intention for the start of the next cycle to come.The fresh cycle of the Aquarian Sun shines a radical, progressive and independent solar energy onto the Aquarius New Moon. A New Moon is the darkest phase, in Aquarius it is feeling emotional freedom through detachment and observing the collective energy. Combining the two, we can see our individuality much clearer, apart from others. Where do we need to step out in our unique expression of ourselves? Does it matter what other people think? Can we articulate what our unique visions for the future look like? These ideas or thoughts can be birthed on this New Moon, if we step out in our own shoes.
These are some Aquarian keywords to jump start your thoughts for your own intentions with this New moon: Invention, objectivity, outgoing, equality, eccentric, fellowship, rebellion, genius, innovative, unconventional, humanitarian, visionary, eccentric and individuality.

The opposition of the Cancer Moon and the Capricorn Sun/Mercury can create a thoughtful balance and compensate for the weaknesses on either side, if we stay conscious of today’s energies.It can also create irritation and friction if you allow emotional triggers to get the best of you. Today we benefit from respectful words that heal and unify. The intuitive and emotional sensitivities of Cancer are strong. The Capricorn sun’s strict routine today can become more flexible by understanding and tuning into others feelings. Soften this opposition of the Moon & Sun along with the wild card of eclipse energy, by nurturing your needs and allow others the space to do the same.☮️

December 21st is the Winter Solstice, we experience the shortest amount of daylight and the longest night. Many cultures celebrate and create rituals to honor the Sun. Solstice literally means the sun is standing still…..this is a traditional time for renewal. It was believed in Pagan times as a rebirth, where the Moon gave birth to the Sun. During the solstice we can meditate on our highs & lows of the past year and envision new growth. Where can we have more compassion going forward? Where did we need to step into our power and trust the process? Where did we make changes? When we tune into Capricorn energy at the beginning of each year, we have the opportunity to take responsibility for what we want. Capricorn in it’s best light is disciplined, practical and uses resources wisely. We can use these themes when we set our intention for a new year .
Candle Ritual for the Winter Solstice
Take some time to yourself or ask some close friends to join you for a candle ceremony. Light a white or golden candle on a round platter or in a large glass bowl with water. You can add to your candle ceremony by putting meaningful offerings around it such as: crystals, scented herbs, ribbons that honor a loved one, a tarot/oracle card you choose for the ceremony. Take some time to reflect or meditate and ask the universe for the highest good on your journey this year. After you set your intention, simply blow out the candle or let it burn out.
WISHING YOU A WARM WINTER SOLSTICE ☮
The fluid Cancer moon washes its emotions through a powerful and beautiful opposition today if you choose to look at the reality of your loved ones emotions. Compassion, understanding and honesty can release the power of past karma with others. Capricorn Courage to feel the Cancer moon’s instinctual need to care. ✨
Venus is the planet of love, affection, attraction and connection. She also rules money and our attitude and relationship with it. During this week Venus transits Saturn and Pluto. Not the most joyous spot for her to visit in the heavens …..nevertheless we can be conscious of this position and take that into consideration with relationship and finances. When Venus conjoins Saturn, there can be a cooling down of affection and expression. Not to worry or take defensively, this is a short transit bringing a more sober and serious attitude. A good time for helping or taking care of shared responsibilities. Saturn also likes to give reality checks and could ask us to pump the brakes on spending during this time.
Venus separates from the Saturnian influence and applies to Pluto on Dec.12th. Pluto intensifies anything that it touches, as Venus just cooled off with Saturn, she now may become extremely focused on a relationship . This day can bring an intensity or misunderstanding in relationships as Pluto is known for it’s transformative properties. Keep a cool head and remember to be patient with yourself and loved ones. Jealousy or defensiveness can be a byproduct of Pluto. Again this transit is short lived.
In the middle of the week we experience a Full Moon in Gemini, also traditionally known as the “Cold Moon” or the “Long Nights Moon”. The air element of the Gemini moon tends to be more outgoing and social, your mind is full of details. Despite the undertone of all the conservatism in the air, this is a good night/day to enjoy company and conversations with friends. Full moons tend to exaggerate or strengthen the mood, perfect for a holiday party or a quick visit. There is plenty going on to debate or discuss on this busy day.
Dec. 12 Jupiter in Capricorn communicates with Uranus in Taurus through a earthy trine aspect helping us avoid getting in a rut with other rigid transits operating at the same time. Jupiter seeks opportunity while Uranus seeks freedom …finding a practical way to work things out differently. Find an outlet to bring more energy to those mundane tasks , could be worth your while. Becoming more conscious of these energies can help navigate these restless urges.
Dec. 13/14 Friday/Saturday A compassionate grand water trine forms. Use this harmonious day to slow down and connect with those closest to us. A healing balm for the past week, we can feel more supportive, accessible and considerate of others. Tap into the focus of Mars in Scorpio paired with the higher expression of love through Neptune in Pisces and the concern of the Moon in Cancer.
The Capricorn influence during December and January is strong so here are some keywords to contemplate…Responsibility, reliability, caution, boundaries, destiny, duty, reasonable, witty, dry humor, frankness, maturity, practicality, determination and reserve. Capricorn archetype is the Father, ruled by Saturn the planet of time. We can use this energy to move forward with discipline, if we decide to listen to our inner task master. This is a time to do the things we really don’t want to do , but need to do. Be patient and take one step at a time and gradually you will get things done in Capricorn style.
Try to give yourself space today . Introspection and reflection can captivate us and our dreams for the future or ideas we have scrapped in the past. Let it be during this brief transit , dreaming vs. decision making.
Frogs are a sensitive creatures , they have permeable skin that absorbs toxic materials. If there are lots of frogs in an area, that indicates a healthy environment. A frog die-off indicates a problem with water, air or soil in their habitat. Pisces moon conjunct Neptune is tuned into sensitivities like an amphibian. Be mindful of what you put in your body today as we may feel extra sensitive to it. Check the caffeine, alcohol and sugar levels in your diet and stay well hydrated…..We can also be in a mood to take time for ourselves, taking an escapist route or avoiding any unnecessary negative energy.
Compassion comes naturally today, you may help others just by listening. Music can transport us as well, if you have a music channel that chooses your favorites , tune in & change the mood instantly !
