Processing & Sharing -- Astrology Forecast for Mon., Dec. 12th - Sun., Dec. 18th, 2016

Please note that all times given below are Eastern Standard Time -- to change the listed times to your own timezone, I recommend clicking here for the time and date converter

Last week I discovered that -- contrary to past beliefs -- my feeling-body needs my own compassion and acceptance "to be what it is" even more than other people's. This made me think about the collective and our history with this. Shifting from self-judgment to self-love and acceptance seems to me one of the most crucial shifts we as humans can undergo for the next wave of our evolution.

Before we get to this week's forecast, I have two quick announcements: 
Last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM, live this coming TuesdayDec. 13th at 4pm PST/7pm EST/midnight GMT (London-time). Please note that we have a Super Moon/Full Moon in Gemini on Tuesday, and a Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, and a Uranus Station coming up in December/January!

Also, my November Special has been EXTENDED until Dec. 15th! For those of you who want to feel empowered throughout 2017, and have solid, continuous support all year long, take advantage of my the Monthly Forecasting Forum Package Deal (and save $96)

This week's headline items: the Full Moon/SuperMoon in Gemini becomes exact on Tuesday evening. On Thursday, Mercury starts to slow down (station), preparing for its retrograde phase. On Friday, Uranus starts to slow down, beginning its station before turning direct again after a 5-month retrograde.

There will also be four Moon VoC phases this week: Monday until 7:41am EST, Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning (for a little over 6 hours), Thursday late afternoon (for almost 16 hours), and Sunday late morning (for 1 hour).

Monday (December 12th): theMoon remainsin steady, peaceful Taurus and VoC until 7:41am EST. Use this intuitive time to make adjustments and find creative solutions to the seeming conflict between your needs around practical matters/finances, versus shared future visions. As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday early morning ahead of time ;-)

Sunday night/Monday very early morninga harmonious Sun/Uranus aspect becomes exact at 1:56am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Thursday on; it will be strong until this Wednesday. This aspect connects us to a strong energy field -- physical and metaphysical. We feel alive, we want to create a better future for ourselves and others, and we want to have fun doing it. Watch out for messages from the Universe :-)

Originality and innovation come easy to us, as does connection with like-minded people. We can celebrate (and leverage) our idealism and unorthodox approaches to life's challenges. What if you expressed what's uniquely "you" without apologies? What if you did it with authenticity and pride? And, looking at things from a different angle: What might be possible with a bigger network of like-minded people? 

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 17-24 degrees of Sagittarius, Aries or Leo? If so, you will feel more blessed by this planetary connection than otherwise.This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Aquarius or Leo (the Sun rules Leo; Uranus rules Aquarius) 

Monday very early morning, a challenging Sun/Chiron aspect becomes exact at 2:58am EST. We started to feel this aspect from last week Thursday on; it will be strong until this Wednesday. This asks us to stretch ourselves and expand from within. We might feel less confident about who we are, and have a hard time projecting a social "front". Our conditioned mind and wounded feelings may be out of harmony with each other. 

As best as you can, take this as an opportunity to make space for feeling vulnerable or emotional without seeing yourself as weak or "less than". It is perfectly ok to have feelings and feel insecure once in a while; as best as you can, bring compassion and love to yourself and others. After all, we are all human…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (MC) or personal planets in 17-24 degrees of Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo or Gemini? If so, you will feel the effects of this aspect more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo (the Sun rules Leo).

Monday at 7:41am EST, the Moon moves into chatty, versatile Gemini, where it will be until Wednesday morning. For the next two days, we like to learn, connect and interact as much as possible. "Busy" feels good: connecting online, on the phone, or sharing face-to-face, preferably multi-tasking all the way...The one thing we can do without is boredom: If our mind is not engaged in some way, we might as well curl up and play dead :-) This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the Full Moon (exact on Tuesday evening).

Monday all day and Tuesday before 6pm EST is your last chance to sign up for my MONTHLY FORECASTING FORUM -- live tomorrow, TuesdayDec. 13th at 4pm PST/7pm EST/midnight GMT (London-time). Please note that we have a Super Moon/Full Moon in Gemini tomorrow, and a Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn, and a Uranus Station coming up in December/January! If you want to know how these planetary movements are going to impact you personally, join me live or sign up for your mp4-video recording.

Other than booking a reading with me, this is the highest level of support you can get -- and it's normally $24.00 for the 90-minute webinar. Holiday Special: 25% discount! This month only: $18 To register now, click here If you would like to join live, please keep in mind that registration will close an hour before the live event begins, if you register after 6pm EST on Tuesday you will receive the mp4-video recording of the webinar.

Tuesday (Dec. 13th): Moon remains in chatty, versatile Gemini all day (see Monday morning for details). 

Tuesday at 7:06pm EST, the Full Moon in 22 degrees of Gemini becomes exact. As mentioned above, the entrance of the Moon into Gemini (Monday morning) started the energetic build up towards the Full Moon

This is the last of four "Super" Full Moons in a row. SuperMoons occur when the Moon is either Full or New, while at its closest distance to the Earth; they are therefore more powerful. This often means an increase in emotional reactions, plus greater awareness around the issues connected to the particular Full Moon energy in question.
 
In this case, that's the Sagittarius/Gemini polarity. We'll seek balance and integration around those poles -- something needs to be brought into alignment -- so let's look at them in more detail:  

Sagittarius teaches us a wider perspective, asking us to look beyond facts and learned knowledge, to our life experiences and the wisdom we gain from them. Sagittarius is interested in the bigger picture, the truth about life. 

Gemini, on the other hand,wants us to stay connected to our immediate environment, our communities and our day-to-day mind -- processing and sharing information (as fast and as much as possible). Gemini is interested in the spoken and written word.  

We are being asked to integrate the Gemini mind-energy/information/conditioning with the wisdom-energy that comes from life's experiences and the quest for a larger truth or bigger understanding (Sagittarius). (Feel free to watch my Full Moon video for more details)

The Sun aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius, asking us to make mature and responsible choices around that Sagittarius search for higher meaning. Questions you can ask yourself for the next two weeks: What guides my choices? What do I learn about life every day, just by living it? How does the experience of my current reality inform what I believe about life? What is the best way to handle "foreign" affairs?

Mercury (ruler of Gemini) is currently in Capricorn and is aligned with Pluto — it also squares Jupiter in Libra. With this alignment, an all-or-nothing attitude is very likely. We have tremendous mental focus... which could tip into obsession. As best as you can, choose your words carefully -- if possible, speak from that deeply connected and empowered place. 

We are also invited to grow and evolve around how we communicate — especially how our communications “land” — we may have to find creative ways to communicate from empowerment and love, rather than from fear. We may have to learn about our thinking processes and conditioning.

The upside to all this: we can be extraordinarily funny, interesting and creative. Ask yourself: What is fact and what is “fiction"? What is "truth" -- does it exist? How does love or fear influence my answers? How do they affect my thinking?

Jupiter (Ruler of Sagittarius), currently in Libra, is making a trine to the Moon in Gemini and an opposition to Uranus in Aries. This brings a greater awareness of new possibilities and greater realities. These aspects encourages us to engage in dialogue, to brainstorm and envision new possibilities. 

What might be possible if I opened up a dialog with others about my unique perspectives? How might those perspectives shift when listening carefully and sincerely hearing another? 

A couple of days after the Full Moon becomes exact, Uranus and Mercurywill both start their station-phases (they will be slowing down). As this happens, both planets' energies will become more exalted. Our communications (Mercury) and need for progress (Uranus) become more important for us during these station-phases. 

Mercury in Capricorn gets ready for it's 3-weekretrograde phase which begins on Dec. 19th; Uranus in Aries gets ready to go direct after a 5-month retrograde phase on Dec. 29th. 

I will be talking in more detail about both of those planetary movements in my next Monthly Forecasting Forum. If you’ve been thinking about taking part in the Dec. 13 Forum, click here to register and take advantage of the Holiday Special 

This Full Moon chart has two T-squares. The first one has Chiron in Pisces as the focus point, Chiron squaring the Moon in Gemini, and the Sun/Saturn alignment in Sagittarius. This T-square asks us to stretch and grow; we are invited to release anything that no longer supports our growth -- individually and collectively.

As the empty leg of this T-square lands in Virgo, we are invited to make choices from a place of clarity rather than judgment. What might I experience if I released all judgment towards myself and others? What might be possible if I embraced my imperfections as actually perfect? Could I try being kind (heart-energy) and clear (mind-energy) at the same time? 

Rather than coming from a place of: good or bad, right or wrong, ask yourself: What works for me? What doesn't? What do I see when I look at that through a lens of neutrality? 

With so many planets and points in mutable signs, we might feel restless and pulled in many directions. It's definitely keeping us busy, but it could also be bringing up feelings of being ungrounded or overwhelmed. Ask yourself: Am I feeling overwhelmed? 

If the answer to that is "yes", as best as you can, center yourself in the here and now. Allow yourself to be present, listen to what's inside of you (beyond the mind), trust your intuitive Self. 

Following our inner guidance on a daily basis is going to be very important; so is releasing any victim-based thinking. The best way to notice victim mentality is to catch ourselves when we blame others (or "life") for our current experiences. If you catch yourself doing this, acknowledge it gently and be kind to yourself (we all do it from time to time... it's human).

By the way, you don't have to blame yourself either: Assigning "fault" is not mandatory, and when we do, we get stuck. Rather than asking, "who's fault is it?", acknowledge what is so (without judging it) and ask: Where do I go from here? What could I learn from this? What do I want to create next?

As best as you can, be kind to yourself; remember that true healing comes from understanding, embracing and even loving who we are deep down: A spirit being who lives in human form. What would happen if you embraced your own humanity an extra 5% right now?

The second T-square has Pluto in Capricorn as the Focus point: Pluto squaring Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. This T-square also asks us to stretch and grow; we are invited to empower ourselves in the world by connecting to our feeling body, understanding our needs, especially our need for safety. 

We are also invited to stretch toward a more authentic and empowered society -- one that honors the unique individual contribution of everyone -- one capable of owning its fears and less attractive characteristics. How can we bring this about? The best place to start is to honor ourselves and express our unique spark. 

I talk a lot in these forecasts about the power and importance of Self-care -- and once again it is worth our attention: As the empty leg of this T-square lands in Cancer, we are reminded to nurture ourselves, especially our feeling body. 

We are being invited to pay attention to our basic needs: Our need for love and acceptance, our need for control or not wanting to feel out of control, and our need for safety and security. 

As best as you can, for the next two weeks, take breaks — or simply slow down, allow your mind to relax. It’s important to explore ways to stay centered and grounded. Seek tools or people to help you with that exploration -- any form of meditation, walking in nature, breathing exercises, practicing being in the here and now… 

If you'd like some help with this over the next two weeks, watch my Full Moon video: towards the end, I invite you to do a quick experiment with me -- an exercise in freedom -- simple questions from the "Sedona Method" that can support you in feeling more grounded and present (the Sedona Method is one of the main techniques I use in my coaching practice). Here's a direct link to the video

For this Full Moon and the next two weeks, you could ask yourself: Am I ready to let go of what I would "like" to be true? What might happen if I looked through the fears and beliefs that block me from embodying my own truth -- walking my talk? What nourishes my soul?  

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 20-24 degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces? If so, you are more affected by this month's Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Wednesday (Dec. 14th) at 12:58am EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for a little over 20 hours, until 7:09am EST. Use this intuitive time to connect with others, exchanging information and discussing your projects with like-minded people. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Wednesday early morning ahead of time ;-)

Wednesday at 7:09am EST, the Moon moves into protective, nurturing Cancer, where it will journey until Friday morning. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say and therefore our feelings are more easily hurt -- so be kind to yourself and others. Self-Care is key for the next two and half days ;-)

Emotional safety is important to us as well; we like connecting to the familiar and we enjoy nurturing ourselves and others -- home and family call to us, for instance. Make sure though, that your glass is filled before letting others drink from it, otherwise you might start to feel drained and resentful. 

Thursday (Dec. 15th): the Moon remains in protective, introverted Cancer all day (see Wednesday morning for details).

Thursday: Mercury starts to slow down (“station”), preparing to come to a halt next week Monday, Dec. 19th (when it will begin its 3-week retrograde phase). More on that next week... 

For the next 9 days (until Dec. 23rd), we need to be patient with ourselves and others -- especially if there is a connection with communication or transportation, and their associated technologies. This is not the best time to start anything brand-new, especially if it contains new information that needs to be processed.

We might experience delays or misunderstandings, and things tend to feel "off" or stagnant. It might be a good idea to give yourself some extra time to get ready or travel somewhere -- especially if you intend to use public transportation or drive (For more details on Mercury Shadow Phases and Retrogrades, click here)
 
Some of us will feel the effects of this station more than others: those of us with Gemini or Virgo as our Sun- or Rising-Sign (Ascendant) -- and those of us with personal planets (or angles) in 13-15 degrees of Capricorn, Libra, Aries, Cancer.

Thursday at 4:37pm EST, we enter a Moon void of course (VoC). that last for almost 16 hours, until 8:15am EST (Friday morning). Use this intuitive time to make adjustments and (as best as you can) find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. Make space both for going after your vision and for taking care of emotional or family issues. 

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Thursday evening and Friday early morning ahead of time ;-)

For those of you who want to feel empowered throughout 2017, and have solid, continuous support all year long! Thursday is your last chance to take advantage of my the Monthly Forecasting Forum Package Deal (andsave $96)

Friday (Dec. 16th): theMoon remainsinprotective, introverted Cancer and VoC until 8:15am EST (see Wednesday morning for details).

Friday at 8:15am EST, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Sunday early afternoon. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. This Moon placement also starts the build-up towards the last Quarter Moon (which, will be exact Monday very early morning...)

We all love to be admired -- or at the very least acknowledged -- for our greatness :-) So hand out some compliments -- let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things... be honest and authentic, as best you can. 

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no "outer children" around, how about getting in touch with your "inner child" -- it's definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it? 

Also on Friday, Uranus begins to slow down -- it will come to a complete halt on Dec. 29th, prior to starting its direct motion again after its 5-month retrograde phase. We will feel this station until Jan. 8th; until then, anything connected to Uranus's energy will come into our awareness quite strongly; we are faced with this planet’s message. 

Uranus is all about breaking away from traditional structures, moving towards a new future, a future that serves others as well as ourselves. Keyword: Freedom. We might have flashes of insight or new ideas about what needs to change in our lives. Definitely expect the unexpected. 

Uranus also rules electronics, technology and the internet, so don't be surprised if you experience some interruptions or short-term failures in these areas. Group activities are also ruled by Uranus, so these will also be more at the forefront of our awareness. As best as you can, stay open and flexible, go with the flow -- and pay attention to those messages from the Universe ;-) 

As best as you can, take a closer look at whatever is "in your face" for the next 3 weeks. Our intuitions will be very strong during this time and we have access to sudden insights and ideas. This gives us the opportunity to take a look to see how free we actually feel. 

Are we expressing our individuality to the fullest? Are we connecting to a larger vision? Is anything holding us back? What did you discover about visions and freedoms these past 5 months?

Is your Sun-sign or Ascendant in Aquarius? Or do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-22 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer? If so, you are more affected by this station.

Saturday (Dec. 17th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Friday morning for details).

Saturday starts out uneasy. We need to develop an inner awareness around our two seemingly opposite pulls: on the one hand, a strong desire to accomplish; on the other, our need for play and fun. 

We are asked to bring awareness to whatever it is we feel most passionate about: Are we after laughter and joy? Or intense and authentic emotion? As best as you can, make adjustments as needed, and drop any self-judgment. 

In the late afternoon/evening, things flow nicely; we feel excited about new commitments and world views. We have an opportunity to get things done, connect and moving exciting projects forward. Towards the later evening, we need to develop inner awareness around our sensitivities and bring compassion to them -- as earlier this morning, we feel an internal unease 

Sunday (Dec. 18th): the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day (see Friday morning for details).

Sunday at 11:55am EST we enter a one-hour Moon void of course (VoC). that lasts until 12:52pm EST. Use this intuitive time to find a balance between your need for creative self-expression, versus your desire to connect with like-minded people (could you allow for both?) As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don't start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. 

Sunday at 12:52pm EST, the Moon moves into detail-oriented, practical Virgo, where it will journey until Tuesday evening; turning our focus toward the practical and wholesome. We are generous with our time/services and we love to help others. We also have a fondness for science and anything that makes sense in our world -- things and knowledge we can apply and use. 

Health might come also into focus at this time. We notice the parts that make up the whole; this is a great time to see if our daily routines (eating, work, self-care, etc.) align with our long-term goals. 

A head's up for next Monday (Dec. 19th): the Moon remains in detail-oriented, practical Virgo all day (see Sunday early afternoon for details).At 4:23am EST, Mars changes signs from Aquarius to Pisces, where it will journey until Jan. 27th. At 5:55am EST,Mercury comes to a halt in 15 degrees of Capricorn.More about all the details in next week’s forecast ;-)
