From Full Moon Magic in the realm of Whole Time: a spell-poem-prayer by Rain Crowe
Sunday, December 7. Did the Full Moon ruffle your feathers? As we shiver and shake our way through this cycle’s illumination, notice where your learning edge is right now. The Full Moon in Gemini emphasizes the ways we learn and communicate. The breakthroughs are around perspective. When the Moon moves into Cancer today we tap into how we are feeling about this. Our attention moves inward and this change in focus helps us attend to our whole selves. Conceptual leaps need to be balanced with emotional self-care. A trine between the Moon and Neptune invites us to slow down and listen to the wisdom of the heart.
Monday, December 8. This is a day of contrasts. It can become a day of wholeness if we can balance exterior and interior experience. The Moon in Cancer stresses emotional needs. This can provoke short tempers or a need to tune out discord. Spending time at home with those who feel like family can help to even things out. On the other hand, Mercury joins with the Sun today in Sagittarius offering more insight and illumination from shared truths. Jupiter in Leo stations retrograde today. The quest for meaning is strong, especially in the realm of personal gnosis. Conflicts could arise based on differences of opinion. To make things even more interesting, the Moon triggers the nearly exact square between Uranus and Pluto. This could be a day of tipping points. What are you noticing at your frontline of change?
Thursday, December 11. The fire signs are concerned with identity and self-expression. Fire as an element gives instinctual awareness—the gut feeling when we know what we want and what we need to do to get it. Fire is creative and essential to life. When fire is strong in our charts, we have the ability to shake off failure and setbacks, to begin again. Sometimes fire is foolhardy, sometimes reactionary, and sometimes forgets to include others in the picture. All these fire qualities are strong today. The Moon in fire sign Leo made a trine to Uranus in fire sign Aries last night (CST). Today the same Moon trines the Sun and Mercury in fire sign Sagittarius and forms a conjunction with a stationary Jupiter in Leo. Tend to your flame; honor this essential element and its influence in your life.
Friday, December 12. A final firework (after the last two days of the Moon in Leo) comes from a trine between Mercury in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Leo early in the day. This agreeable aspect between these two planets gives a lot of energy to communicating our truths. Get you message out there. We are less cautious under this influence, take a risk on speaking out. The energy shifts into Virgo mode as the day goes on. We become more interested in sweeping up the messes after firey exuberance. Nothing is ever perfect, but how can we make things just a little bit better? Pay attention to health. Fire signs can burn out. You may be feeling this just about now. Crafting and quiet contemplation could be a lovely way to end the week with the Moon in Virgo making a trine to Venus and seeking balance from Neptune.
