Raise your glass—it’s Sagittarius season!
November had its darker moments, the stars sent us into the eye of the needle. Many of us emerged transformed, if not a bit shaken by the experience. Now, Sagittarius time sweeps in to give us hope and vision.
While Scorpio may have sparked this process, Sagittarius sends us on an alchemical adventure or two. With the Sun in worldly Sag until December 21, it’s time to reach upward and outward. Emerge from the myopic bubble and go interact with people and places beyond your comfort zone. Sagittarius is all about expansion, personal growth and risk.
So embrace evolution with a spirit of adventure, especially at the December 11 Sagittarius new moon. Just don’t abandon your common sense. A tough square between the new moon and Jupiter in fastidious Virgo reminds us that we still need to plan, inspect, budget and follow certain protocols. Pace yourself so you don’t burn out!
In December, we’ll continue to weather the challenging square between structured Saturn in Sagittarius (the international sign) and secretive Neptune in Pisces, which rules hidden agendas and healing. Saturn and Neptune will square off again from June-September 2016, inciting a need for better global relations and safe havens.
On December 21, the Sun moves into traditional Capricorn, just in time for the Christmas holiday season. In fact, December 25 is a major day in the stars this year. It will feature the final supermoon of 2015—a full moon in Cancer, the sign of home and family. This can put the spotlight on visiting relatives, or bring cozy domestic moments. Devote the day to nesting and resting if you can. Caution: full moons can also bring buried emotions into the open. Supermoons intensify everything. Luckily, this full moon will form a harmonious trine to compassionate Neptune in Pisces. Let’s use our sharing to heal, not harm. Also on December 25, radical Uranus will end a five-month retrograde cycle in fiery Aries.
Happy, healthy New Year? The moon will spend its final hours of 2015 in Virgo most places. This moon can bring a much-welcomed simple elegance to your festivities, perhaps even a healthy twist. Virgo is also the sign of perfectionism; don’t spend so much time fussing with your wardrobe and styling that you nearly miss the midnight moment! The moon will move into Libra on New Year’s Day, keeping the lighthearted vibes flowing…
