December 21—New Moon: Dreaming. Winter Solstice (Northern Hemisphere). The introduction to this week’s forecast (above) sets the tone for this super-charged Capricorn lunar cycle and Winter Solstice day. We begin to climb out of the darkest time of the year in the northern hemisphere just as the Capricorn Mountain Goat is poised to begin a new climb to excellence. We live in revolutionary times. Systems are under review. When we know that the system supports our goals, we can enjoy the work that Capricorn invokes. What is the seed you plant in the darkness? It is important to take this winter season to evaluate what you want to grow from this potent time of the year and what systems you will commit to.
Monday, December 22. This is an excellent day to evaluate the systems that either support your goals or inhibit them. The Moon in Capricorn is busy today. As most of us sleep (CST) the Moon makes an enchanting sextile to Neptune. Do you remember your dreams? At this seed time of the year, dreams have significance. Later the Moon conjoins Mercury in Capricorn and we benefit from strategic thoughts and conversations. What is the plan? Capricorn likes to think long-range, spanning the ancient past into the realizable future. With increased attention we begin to notice the Uranus/Pluto square being activated by the Moon. As long as we are willing to change the systems, we are energized to work for our goals. Those who are entrenched in the status quo may have a harder time. All of us will need to make adjustments in order to get with the program. Tonight may be good for meaningful connections with others when the Moon conjoins Venus.
December 25—Crescent Moon: Beginning. At this stage of the lunar cycle, we notice that both conscious and unconscious choices have created increasing momentum. The train has left the station. Considering how much large planetary energy was activated in the first few days of this Capricorn lunar cycle, this may be even truer this time. The train has indeed left the station and we have a better sense of the work ahead. What seeds are you planting in the dark? My New Moon intention was to focus on what success meant to me and to evaluate the systems that I live within. Have you noticed the connection between success and systems? Is there alignment for you?
