Full Moon in Gemini / Uranus Direct – Dec ’13
There is lots of planetary activity and energetic shifts taking place this week, so fasten your seatbelt. I suggest that you eliminate whatever you can to create more space for yourself.
We are entering a stressful setup for the rest of the month – and I urge you to choose deliberately where to place your energy and attention.
Neptune (dreams, illusion) makes confusing aspects today and Sat that makes taking actions potentially challenging. If you’re not clear about what to do or how to do it, either use your intuition to guide you or wait until you have clarity to proceed.
Stress is created when you think you have to act NOW – and you encounter an obstacle. Slow down, for your safety and sanity :)
We have a Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday, Dec 17th at 4:28am EDT, so over the weekend through Monday night, the emotional energy will be rising. Expect lots of info to be flying around and multi-tasking may reach new heights. Overwhelm is possible, which creates drama. Again, go slowly and do the next right thing :))
The energy builds until the Moon is Full and then it pops, releasing the pressure – usually. But not this time, because on the same day as the Full Moon, Uranus (rebellion, change) stations to go Direct.
Watch for dramatic changes, personally and globally on Tuesday and in the coming week.
You may experience pleasant changes or unwanted challenges, but the element of surprise in and of itself tends to put people on edge – and combined with holiday shopping and media-induced mania, and it makes for an anxiety-laden setup.
My guidance: set your intention to USE the energy of change (Uranus Direct) to create what you want!
As the week progresses, fiery Mars enters into an opposition with rebellious Uranus, so if you experience the unexpected (especially someone acting out), remember that you can choose not to react. The most rational person will be the happiest (a victory!) – and perhaps you can help to defuse the upset one as well. A service :)
Mars is a trigger planet that can activate dynamic energies and create dramatic effects. In the coming weeks, we will have a Grand Cross that will make the holidays more edgy/stressful rather than warm and fuzzy.
I don’t want to be a downer, but the aspects are tense this holiday season – and the closer we get to the New Year, the more turbulent the energy will be. You will get to practice patience, peace, reality checks and “how important is it?” when you feel triggered.
In your personal life, easy does it – the more gently you operate, the better. Stay neutral, be Spock :))
Do your holiday shopping this week. On Dec 21st Venus goes Retrograde until the end of January, which affects money, what you value (yes, you may change your mind about that big ticket item or your new hairdo), your style, aesthetics and who you want to be in relationship with, socially or romantically.
Don’t wait until the last minute because shopping during Venus Retrograde is a risky idea, activating questionable choices, overspending, and buying wrong items that you can’t return!
Go slowly and deliberately as you move through December. And stay present to what will serve you best as you approach 2014.
Running around to all the holiday parties can drain your energy, and trying to meet others’ expectations can leave you frazzled and empty. Whatever you choose to do during holiday time, make your choices deliberate.
You decide where to be and who to give your attention to.
Pay attention to the Moon Void of Course periods this week. Don’t schedule important meetings, dates, tasks or launches during Moon Void of Course times. Here’s a link to get the Perfect Timing Guide if you need it.
Don’t take actions that require a specific outcome when the Moon is Void of Course. The Void Moon is good for leisure, spiritual connection, routine and creative activities, but not for targeted results.
Knowing the Void Moon times and acting accordingly goes to your responsibility for creating what you want in life. Namaste.
