“A Merry Christmas this December – To a lot of folks I don’t remember” –


Mantra for the month – Generosity towards others, brings light and happiness into our own lives.

The Holiday season, and the magic of Christmas is symbolized as the Winter Solstice begins on December 22, and the Sun commences in the earthy, Saturn ruled sign of Capricorn. This period marks both an ending as well as a beginning as we welcome 2015.

Are you experiencing breakthroughs in perception that at times are unnerving and other times inspiring? This is a Mercurial Full Moon once again inviting mental flexibility — the psychic space to change your mind. This particular Full Moon can be flexible providing you with that extra emotional and mental edge.

New Moon in Capricorn -

Don’t wait until December 31 to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2015. One of the most serious New Moon cycles of the year is upon us on December 21 This is the most auspicious day to set intentions that require discipline, patience and responsibility.

Capricorn is the sign that rules time, authority and integrity. It is a sign especially connected to our status in this world, our “piece of the rock” so to speak. This New Moon in Capricorn asks us to get clear about what we need to firmly say no to in our lives, so that we can have closure and be able to move on as well as add importance to the priorities in our lives both professionally as well as personally. Capricorn reminds us that there is only so much time in our life, and so we must eliminate all of those attachments and addictions that waste our most valuable time. Time to prioritize. Time to set boundaries and get your life in order.

Venus in Sagittarius –

When Venus is in Sagittarius: Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, romantic energy shifts from intense to free-spirited. Sagittarius, of course, has its intense moments, considering it is a fire sign. However, its energy is considerably less focused; and, while Scorpio is most concerned with intimacy with a specific person, Sagittarius’ love is of a more universal kind. Romantic adventures, as well as a straightforward–even blunt–approach to love, are on the agenda. Gone are the intricacy and complexity of Venus in Scorpio. Truth and higher meaning are things that take priority with Venus in Sagittarius. The down side is a tendency to over spend, and to be overly generous. So be aware that you do have limits.
