On December 23rd at 2:17 AM PST the Sun and Moon join at 1 degree Capricorn 33 minutes. This is our second New Moon in Capricorn in 2022, last time was on January 2nd. Here we are to set up our early winter hopes and aspirations, coming right after the Winter Solstice and right before Christmas. The energies are peaking for plans for our career, recognizing our reputation, and what we have to share with our world.

Capricorn is a Cardinal Earth Sign. It rules the first month of Winter and leads the way to practical and necessary actions to survive. This Earth Sign is a grounded, no nonsense pursuer of making a mark in the world. It inspires fortitude and perseverance, like the glyph of the mountain goat that represents it. Plodding ever forward, sure footed is the best use of Capricorn's influence and energy. The planet Saturn rules this sign. Saturn is regarded as the taskmaster, elder, teacher through difficulties and restrictions. We are encouraged to break through our limitations with Saturns help.

On this occasion the Sun and Moon are square Jupiter at 0 degrees Aries. This can make for a bit of tunnel vision, being super conscious of what your needs and ambitions are, but with little patience; unconcerned with what others want. You’ll have big aspirations and the desire to succeed in life in a grand way. At this time you can tend to exaggerate, to promise more than is possible, and to misjudge through over-optimism. But if you keep your emotions in check, this can potentially be a superb time to dream up the next steps in your climb up the ladder of success.

Helping this along, Jupiter enters the sign of Aries on December 20th, after its sojourn in Pisces. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, growth, and generosity in the sign of Aries is very different. Going from the Water element of sensitivity and spirituality to the Fire element of passion and force, much more can be accomplished now. We are inspired to take a new look at our ambitions with more excitement and optimism. Again, the energies are supporting us as individuals; but what better place to start from? From the inside out.

Take the time to dream big, with courage and self esteem. You’re worth it! Access the power of all of these self centered signs :) no offense, just how I see it, and work up a plan to move ahead. Wherever you’ve had the inspiration to do something different, now is the time to plant the seed. Doesn’t have to happen overnight, remember the New Moon is a time for making wishes that you want to come true. Here on planet Earth it begins with a wish, and goes from there. Believe.

Happy first day of the Winter season! The Solstice marks the first moment of Winter, when the Sun is stationed at 0 degrees Capricorn 0 minutes. It is a time of celebration, of recognizing it is the darkest, shortest day of the year, with the promise of the days getting longer and longer as time goes on.

Spiritually speaking, this day is when we recognize our own shadow self, and can look at what can be done about bringing it out into the light. This is the time of hibernation, where the animal kingdom perceives and knows it’s time to go into the dream time of slumber. In centuries past, people celebrated “Yule” by seeing the Sun rebirth itself, and gave gifts and shared in the festivities and rituals. We used to be a society of those who paid more attention to the seasons and their offerings, and marked the Solstices and Equinoxes as cornerstones of life. But now, the Winter Solstice is all but forgotten in the general population. I believe if you honor and respect this time of year, there is much to be gained. Capricorn is a powerful Cardinal Earth sign, and with it comes a very grounded attitude and inspiration. We once again look at the beauty Winter brings, regardless of where you live in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s colder, quiet as the birds and animals search for comfort, and physically we slow down. We seek creativity in our kitchens, our comforts in our home, and our families. And with this Cardinal Earth sign, we take our efforts seriously, working to improve our achievements.

On this particular Solstice, Jupiter is stationed at 0 degrees Aries, exactly squaring our Sun. How does this affect us? It gives us the opportunity to be generous, charitable and helpful to others. It can take one over the line where you can promise more than you can do, but your heart is in the right place;) The keyword here is exaggeration, and if one can keep their head above water, and know their limitations, there is much that can be accomplished. Allow yourself the feelings of confidence and power and use these energies to move forward in life.

December 28th to January 18th, 2023 Mercury is Retrograde. In the sign of Capricorn, Mercury leads us on a review, going over unfinished business, goals and business pursuits. Time to enlist the wisdom of the Dreamtime, where we go within for answers, for understanding and come back with our next steps. There isn’t a more important time in this world to be connected to our guidance, strengthening our bond with “All That Is”. The truth lies inside of us, in our hearts and minds, and as they say, the truth will set you free. Blessings are awaiting us all, knock and the door will open!

Thank you Judy Crescenzo for your brilliant insight!

On December 7th at 8:09 PM PST, the Sun and Moon oppose each other exactly, The Sun stationed at 16 degrees Sagittarius 1 minute, and the Moon at 16 degrees Gemini 1 minute create this month’s Full Moon. These two signs deal with the creative mind and the logical mind. Here we are looking at our communications, observations and thoughts that drive us.

As with every Full Moon, we look back to when the New Moon was in the same sign, and what we were inspired to create. Here we look back to the New Moon in Gemini which took place May 30th of this year. Try to remember what plans you were making, what ideas you were coming up with, and look now for their results. Maybe it was to further your education, or write that book, maybe to iron out the differences with a friend or loved one with a lovingly crafted letter. Whatever you considered was like a seed being planted; able to grow into a reality you made possible.

Now with the Sun in Sagittarius, a Mutable Fire Sign, we are setting the bar high on our projects and plans. We have the Fire energy to keep us inspired and active. With a Gemini Moon; a Mutable Air Sign, thoughts are intellectual and quick witted. Gemini’s glyph or symbol is the Twins, due to its nature to see both sides clearly. Don’t try and debate a Gemini unless you’re ready to be outdone! Quicksilver Messenger Service comes quickly with humor and intelligence. So this Full Moon is about what you may have intended to set into motion, and how you feel emotionally about your progress. Gemini isn’t into heavy, emotional drama, and neither is Sagittarius. So we can see clearly with a sharp mind.

At this time exactly conjunct the Moon is Mars at 16 degrees Gemini. Oh boy! Let the fireworks begin;) Gemini is quick to find fault, mistakes and flaws in whatever the subject matter is, and can make for dry exchanges. Mars, being the planet of War, wants to lead the charge into debates that express the frustrations, annoying circumstances in play, so as to move forward. Yikes. Watch the direction of your conversations on this Full Moon, skip the ones about religion, government, known differences of opinions or you’re likely to have arguments;)

The Moon and Mars in Gemini are opposite the Sun in Gemini. They are both squared by Neptune at 22 degrees Pisces. This creates a T-Square, and the avenue for discovery and insights comes from Neptune. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Like the Twins with Gemini, they illustrate the dual nature; male/female, yin/yang, positive/negative. To me, it’s like having two sides of the brain working together in harmony. We have the opportunity to see now

how far we’ve come from a more spiritual perspective with Neptune’s assistance; one that includes dreams, hopes and wishes. Rather than be hard on ourselves or others, celebrate what is, and continue on. One pitfall of Neptune's energy is the inspiration to escape difficulties through drugs, alcohol, fleeing rather than confronting, so be on the lookout.

Reining these energies in is Saturn at 20 degrees Aquarius, sextile the Sun and trine the Moon. This brings a level headedness that hopefully keeps that Mars/Moon combo from getting too out of hand. It’s important to have talks now, but be clear about your feelings and those of others. What’s first and foremost is your delivery, whether it’s inviting and energetic, or combative and aggressive. You can be direct without angering others, and losing their attention. So the saying “pick your battles wisely” is appropriate now.

Always grateful for you Judy Crescenzo! Please email For a private reading!
