Our last full Moon of 2020 lands on December 29th at 7:28 PM PST. This year our first Full Moon was also in the sign of Cancer and was a Lunar Eclipse (1/10/2020). It was a very powerful Full Moon to begin our year of changes. Now, this Full Moon closing out the year is illuminating the way forward into 2021.

The Moon rules the sign of Cancer, and is at home in this energy. It speaks of our home and family, our physical house and life it provides. This is the sign of Mother; the nurturing qualities of giving, sharing and loving. Now, as this Full Moon lights the way, we see where we stand after this past year full of fear, limitation and chaos. Where are the comforts of the past? Where is the security that this sign seeks to find? What have we learned about our creature comforts and whether or not we can exist without them?

The world has been stripped of the past. Nothing is as it was before. Or is that true? We have been taken into a world that doesn’t resemble what we have known, what provided us the safety and dependability we all thought we knew. Our eyes have been opened to so many issues that have been hidden from our view. Some people are in a state of shock, traumatized by the events going on. But others, having been forced to see truth being exposed everywhere, have taken off the rose colored glasses. They are adapting and adjusting to the changes and looking for new ways to succeed.

The truth is we are still here, our families surround us, our caring and loving nature has been reinforced as we see others’ suffering that we can help. We’ve seen people sharing what they have with their neighbors, people forming groups to gather and deliver food to those in need, loving gestures inspired by our situation. But then we see others acting out of fear, taking from others and destroying the sense of peace. Where do you stand?

The planet Uranus at 6 degrees Taurus is sextile the Full Moon. Uranus is the planet of freedom, and in the sign of Taurus, it represents our world, our Earth. This is such a blessing as this planet inspires us to de-clutter our emotions. To do a house cleaning of our sensitive nature. Uranus brings about sudden changes, and frees us from limitation. It shows us where we are stuck, stubbornly holding on to beliefs and fears that are long past their shelf life. So this team of Uranus and the Full Moon have our well being in store, if we are able to surrender to a new truth. So everything is different, so the world looks and behaves differently, set a goal to find a way to free yourself to a new you. There’s no sense in resisting, the course has been set for you.

Uranus also trines the Sun in Capricorn, another blessing! Sometimes it's so difficult to make the fundamental changes in our lives, but with this trine it can be exciting and creative. You can experience and express yourself more effectively than ever. Look to what needs improvement, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual and use this uplifting energy to reach your new you. Make the changes now, rather than being forced to make them in a way that is less pleasant.

So, on this last Full Moon of 2020, cozy up with those you love by a warm fire, a delicious meal, a good story about your relatives and those you care so much about. Let us get back to the basics of caring for each other, free from expectations. With our new understanding of the world, we must be optimistic and hopeful and continue on. Allow tears to wash away the pain and sadness and hold on to those you love. Let us make our New Years promise to ourselves to share more, love more, and care more in 2021.

December 21st 2020 at 2:02 AM PST marks the first moment of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the longest night and the shortest day of the year. In the Southern Hemisphere, it marks the first moment of Summer. For centuries cultures in the North have celebrated this moment, as the “old Sun” dies, and the “new Sun” is born. It is a time of hope, as the days continue to get longer, we see the opportunities that Spring will bring.

But this is the Dreamtime of winter. When we change course from being outdoors to going inside to create. Capricorn is an Earth Sign, and is the Builder of the Zodiac. What are you dreaming into creation? Capricorn’s ruler is Saturn which governs duty, limitation, and self discipline; all things practical and responsible. It teaches us through frustrated effort to take the necessary steps to achieve our goals.

Capricorn is the first month of winter, making its energy Cardinal, leading and authoritative. It’s glyph is the goat, carefully plodding up the rocky mountain of life, surefooted and cautious.

The Sun is at 0 degrees Capricorn 0 minutes, and conjoined it is Mercury the messenger at 0 degrees Capricorn. Together, the Sun and Mercury deliver us into a new way of thinking, built upon a new secure foundation. Mercury in Capricorn is no nonsense thinking and planning, and takes into account everything necessary to build anew.

On this Winter Solstice we have an event that hasn’t happened for 400 years; their last closest conjunction was in 1623, and the closest observable since 1226! Saturn and Jupiter are together at 0 degrees Aquarius. These two planets have been traveling together with Pluto over 2020 in Capricorn; breaking down systems of government, finance, all the institutions we depend on in our culture. Now we are moving forward, and these two planets signal big changes at the move into Aquarius. Aquarius is about freedom, humanitarian goals, rebellion and revolution. The tired outworn systems of the past have crumbled, and a new reality is being built.

But with this introduction of the new Aquarian energies, we are still in the Sunsign of Capricorn for the next month. And Pluto will continue through the sign of Capricorn until November of 2024. So the inner work continues as we dream our next reality. Over the next few weeks it is finally time to KNOW who you are, what are your values, and how do you wish to proceed into our new world. It will be tested, time and again, but now is the time to formulate who you wish to be. Think outside the box.

Rather than go backwards into a life you’ve been forced to leave behind, look to the future with new ambitions. Do an inventory of all of your assets, talents, beliefs and fears and see what dialogue you have with your higher self. One by one you can eliminate that which no longer serves you, and free yourself from the past. We are living side by side as a new world is being birthed. Who would you like to be in that new world? Take yourself seriously and go for the gusto!

Sometimes we just don’t know what we really have available to us until we step out on a limb and take a chance. Don’t be afraid to fail; try each attempt fully and find out from your actions whether or not that was the right direction for you. We are being led by our higher selves more than ever now if only we listen. Remember the old adage, “Knock and the door will be opened to you”? How can doors open unless we knock?

So with this flood of energies assisting us along the way, keep your eyes on the prize.

On December 14th at 8:16 AM PST, we have quite the solar event! The New Moon at 23 degrees Sagittarius 8 minutes joins with the Sun at the same sign and degrees, casting a complete shadow temporarily creating a Total Solar Eclipse. It can be viewed best in Chili and Argentina; and seen in South America, South West Africa, and Antarctica.

This amplifies the energy of the New Moon, bringing more drama and possibly unsettling or disruptive energies. It exaggerates the energy to be used, and it is up to each of us how we deal with it. The planets and luminaries involved in this event are in the element of FIRE, bringing action and a masculine/positively charged energy. No time to sit around and consider, time for achievement and accomplishment.

Sagittarius is a MUTABLE sign, one at the end of the season, making it’s dynamic energy flexible and adaptable. It lends a creative power for us to use to uplift our existence. Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the higher teacher of our solar system, that expands and enlightens. It shows us the way out of our old patterns through a new lens. We see the possibilities, we’ve been through the teardown phase and are rethinking our futures.

Traveling with the Sun and Moon is Mercury, the messenger, at 20 degrees Sagittarius 6 minutes. Our mind is open to the powerful challenge we are given here, with all we have been exposed to and learned from this past year. The challenge can come in new information being released, and how it may turn our beliefs and worldview upside down. Remember the flexibility provided us with this team of energies working together to open our most sensitive and vulnerable selves. We are being made aware of more now than ever before.

Add to this the planet Mars at 20 degrees Aries 43 minutes. It TRINES the Sun and Moon and adds more fireworks to this Total Eclipse. Mars is at home in the sign of Aries, and takes our attention from the collective to ourselves. How are we individually going to end 2020; with fear or optimism? We are at the crossroads; which way will we go?

For this stellar event it is important to join in and be fearless. The time of “instant karma” is here, so be careful what you ask for. We all as individuals can repurpose our lives to have more meaning, more creativity, more freedom if only we commit to the goal. The old rhetoric in our inner dialogue that keeps us from truly manifesting our chosen existence must stop. We must retrain ourselves to be looking at our lives in the positive framework. We still have choices to make daily. Are they for our highest good? Or are we surrendering to our old programming which keeps us stuck?

There’s no better time than the present to redirect our passion and power into projects that take us from here to there. Step out of low expectations and climb the ladder to your highest expression. Use the FIRE element to burn away the limiting beliefs and get ready for the Winter Solstice on Monday December 21, 2020. As the days get shorter, and the nights get longer, we are moving into the Dreamtime of Winter. Bears hibernate as do other animals, signaling the time to go inward to dream our next existence.

Everything around us is working to bring about change, so pay attention, and do what you know is best for you and your family. It’s all about LOVE after all.
