In the last few weeks, violence has ravaged headlines like a tornado. Some of us have almost become numb, while others are rallying, urging lawmakers to make it more difficult to purchase weapons. Many argue that people should take classes and pass tests prior to operating a firearm, much like driving a car.
Oddly enough, Mars, ruler of both weapons and motor vehicles, has been making challenging aspects in the sky above, reflecting our challenges here on Earth.
Mars has been talking to Uranus and Pluto, who are historically responsible for major turning points in cultural evolution. We are in a rebirthing period of humanity. We are evolving from survival-based homo-sapien, to consciousness-based homo-luminus. Birth is never an easy process; it’s raw, cathartic, painful and yet, sublimely beautiful. We are collectively feeling the pains of renewal. This is just a part of the process. We are becoming vastly aware of the violence plaguing society, and at the same time, trying to decide together what to do about it.
Mars also rules yang energy, the outward thrust. The symbol of Mars resembles a phallus. When Mars makes more harmonious aspects, say, to Neptune, we may see a Divine Masculine figure. Conversely, as Mars has made challenging aspects this week, I’ve noticed more archetypes of the emasculated male. These are funny examples, but “Instagram Husband" and “Sad Etsy Boyfriends” found their way onto my feed last week.
Not to worry: Mars’ challenging aspects loosen their grip over the next couple of weeks. It’s also important to remind ourselves during these times that nothing is inherently “good” or “bad,” in the grand scheme of evolution. Remember that “guru” literally translates “from darkness to light.”
"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
On Thursday, December 17th, we connect with the dream we’ve been working towards. We can feel it and we can visualize it. The only thing standing between then and now is time, and maybe some muscle. There is a baby grand trine today involving Venus, Pluto, Mercury and the Moon; important connections can be established through the workplace or in the community. Magnetic attraction is also possible, so pay attention to who you meet and where your thoughts are directed.
On Friday, December 18th, the Moon is void in Pisces from 10:14 am until entering Aries at 4:26pm. It’s a good day for tying up loose ends. Don’t start anything new or buy anything important until after 4:26 pm (if possible). Venus makes a quincunx with Uranus, creating an element of indecision. Part of us desires the depth of solitude and the other part craves excitement. Strike a balance or choose.
It’s a busy Saturn-day with the Moon in Aries. There is a lot of potential for productivity. Pay attention to what you hear today, as secrets may be revealed. You may even make a discovery within your own self. Mercury conjoins with Pluto, creating a safe space for deep reflection, psychological investigation and/or purging, or even deep meditation. Release and transform outworn thinking patterns, or become aware of subconscious programming that limits you; it comes to light, ready to be altered.
Expect the unexpected this evening when the Moon conjoins unpredictable Uranus. Plans may change last minute. Go with the flow and get out of your comfort zone; you’ll be happy you did! Uranus rules lightning, which strikes the Earth from the heavens. Since light is information, this is akin to receiving a rapid download from the ethers. This is an “aha!” moment. Lightning also releases built up pressure from the atmosphere and illuminating the sky in a new way; similarly, we have to get wild in order to release tension and receive new inspiration.
The busy-ness carries over into Sunday as the Aries Moon talks to Mars. This isn’t a lazy Sunday at all. There might be a lengthy list of things to do, or maybe we need to hit the gym. There is a possibility for an argument or disagreement here, so try to let of some steam off at the gym or in your yoga practice. If necessary, express your discontent from a place of compassion. We are ready to relax by 5:01 pm, when the Moon goes void. However, it may be tricky quieting mental chatter and falling asleep tonight.
The Moon is in loyal Taurus all day on Monday, December 21st. There is potential for grounded creativity today. Imagination manifests into the physical plane. This is a playful, but intentional energy.
Blessed Yule! Today is the WINTER SOLSTICE, the shortest day of the year and the first day of winter. Throughout the solar year, the Sun’s arc across the sky ebbs from its highest arc at the summer solstice, down to its shortest arc at the winter solstice. Here, the Sun (of) God appears to remains on the earthly cross of matter for 3 days, its arc neither growing nor shrinking. The Sun is then “reborn” on December 25th as it begins its ascent towards longer days. The equinoxes are when we have equal amounts of daylight and darkness. It’s the week after the spring equinox, during Ostara or Easter, when we celebrate the victory of the light; and during the fall, when the Sun’s arc literally falls lower each day.
In astrology, the Winter Solstice marks the 1st degree of Capricorn. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which to the ancients, was the furthest planet from the Sun, and thus, the coldest planet in our solar system. This is probably why Saturn rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, the first two signs of winter.
Ambitious, hard-working and loyal, it’s during this time of year that we set our new year’s resolutions and commit to a fitness plan; Saturn is associated with losing the weight that we gained during the Sagittarian party season last month. Now, the party is over and it’s time to commit and work towards something of importance.
Capricorn has high standards of excellence and urges us towards personal accountability. Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign, which translates to steady, grounded, physical action. Said another way, it’s about having a purpose and actually doing the work, not just dreaming about it and waiting for it to happen.
With limited sunlight, we have less vitality, so it’s all about pacing ourselves. Capricorn knows that slow and steady wins the race. Another side effect of lack of sunlight is depression. This isn’t to say that all Capricorn’s are depressed, they aren’t! But it often lends to a more serious tone, even austerity. Capricorn humor is usually sarcastic and dry, like Louis CK, whose Moon is in Capricorn.
Tuesday, December 22nd, we have a beautiful kite formation (which is a grand trine, with another planet opposing one of the corners. Grand trines are lovely, but they aren’t always productive unless another planet joins in to make a kite, lifting the formation into the bustling winds). We have potential to get a lot of work done today, weaving our own creative passion into our work. Things just seem to flow harmoniously today, so go with the flow! That said, the Moon is void in Taurus from 9:26am until entering Gemini at 9:31 pm, so try not to initiate anything really important and hold off on major purchases. Today is best spent continuing ongoing tasks.
Wednesday, December 23rd, the Moon is in Gemini all day, making challenging aspects to Neptune and Saturn. Confusion is in the air. What is the truth? What is my truth? Information may be distorted today, and imagination takes flight. How do we sort through truth, lies, reality and fantasy? Media is the 4th branch of government. In these times, it’s important that we use discernment as we sift through the bulk of information. This same energy also applies on a personal level. We need to strike a balance between dreaming big and remaining realistic.
On Thursday, December 24th, the planets are very busy and so are we! Venus sextiles Jupiter, ready for pleasure and merriment. Good conversation and generosity are in the air. If you are seeing your family today, there is potential to heal some of the harsh words from Thanksgiving. We are feeling more compassionate today and it’s easier to put differences aside and find kinder words.
December 25th, 2015: FULL MOON 3⁰ Cancer::
The Full Moon becomes exact at 6:12 am, highlighting the axis of Cancer/Capricorn. On Full Moons, we take stock of how each polarity shows up in our lives. Cancer rules emotional growth, the home, family, nurturing, birth, caretaking and caregiving, as well as heredity and the roots of our past. Capricorn is concerned with where we are heading, namely our career, ambitions, setting and achieving goals, receiving recognition for said goals, reputation, as well as maturity and wisdom that comes with age.
The message of this Full Moon may be as simple as balancing your career and home life. If you are working 80 hours a week and missing your family grow up, you may realize that your schedule needs to be adjusted. Conversely, if you are sitting on the couch waiting for your dreams to come true, you may need to get out into the world more and put yourself out there. Cancer likes privacy and Capricorn likes recognition; what is the right balance here for you?
On the other hand, this Full Moon may be about taking responsibility for oneself. Blaming the past (Cancer) and living in the past are going to prevent you from climbing the tallest mountain of your own potential. We were all children once, so it’s easy to fall back onto that role. Children aren’t always great at taking responsibility for their actions and excuses are made. Capricorn has no time for excuses; we all have an allotted amount of time here on Earth and we ought to use it wisely.
Burning yourself out is just as destructive as apathy. Pace yourself. The Capricorn Sea-Goat steadily climbs his mountain, trusting in his roots of expertise and concentrating on his excellence. He is sure that he will make it because he’s thoroughly prepared himself for this feat. We reap what we sow, which is why the Sea-Goat can also swim to the lowest of low. It’s up to us. Capricorn is where we are recognized for our efforts. If you’ve been dishonest, this is where you get caught! If you have been on a steady weight-loss plan, this is where you reach your goal and finally buy that hot red dress.
If you are celebrating Christmas with your family today, it’s a wonderful opportunity to honor your heritage and appreciate your roots. If you don’t know much about your family tree, you may feel intrigued to ask your grandmother about her grandmothers. On this day, many are honoring their family’s traditional meals and rituals, which happens to align perfectly with today’s Full Moon energy.
Full Moons amplify sensitivity, intuition and sometimes make us hyper. Hopefully our family’s traditions enliven us today and don’t drive us crazy. The word “lunatic,” finds its root in the word “luna,” for the moon.
Anything is truly possible today as Uranus stations direct, ending its retrograde period that began on July 26th. Be ready for surprises! Think back to that time: what were you working on? Did you have any big revelations in regards to your path? This may be another turning point in that story.
On Saturday, December 26th, the Cancer Moon forms a loose grand square with Pluto, Uranus, Mars and Mercury. This is a high tension aspect that requires action to be taken. This square has the potential to be really constructive or even transformational. You’ll definitely feel how and where this energy comes up in your life. Much clarity can be gained today. Pay attention to what you hear from others. On a personal level, we are able to work with these charged transits more consciously; however, on a collective level, they can manifest destructively. So if the lunatics didn’t come out last night with the Full Moon, we may hear from them today.
December 27th is the first quiet Sunday we’ve had in a while! The planets are relatively chill today, and therefore so are we…. At least until about 5pm when the Leo Moon is in the spotlight. We get a message from the Universe that we must express our truth by taking practical action, infused with our most spectacular vision of our future. We have no choice but to be ourselves! Own it and do more of it!
On Monday, the spotlight is still on that creative Leo Moon. We find that when we come to the world authentically and from our true heart path, that it’s not only healing, but deeply powerful. What if we all removed our masks, and spoke truthfully and lovingly from the heart; what if we were all able to release our anxieties of the future and guilt from our past and live fully in the now from the core of our truest, highest expression of ourselves? What would that world look like? We attract what we exude. Today, we are urged to release whatever is holding us back from living fully in our truth.
“As you begin to love yourself, you will find that pain and suffering are only warning signs that you are living against your truth.”
Continuing with the energy of the last two days, we can smash away obstacles on Tuesday, December 29th. We have a potent configuration known as “Thor’s Hammer.” Venus is at her last degree of Scorpio, and by now, we know very clearly what’s important to us and what we are willing to work towards. We don’t have time for bullshit! We have the courage to walk away from something, knowing full well that it is no longer useful.
The Moon enters industrious Virgo at 1:58 pm, illuminating details and health.
Venus leaves private Scorpio on December 30th at 2:16 am, when she enters jubilant Sagittarius. Suddenly, we feel like getting out of our comfort zone, maybe even meeting new people. This shift comes very timely, as New Year’s Eve is tomorrow. The majority of people should be especially cheerful, and ready to celebrate and enjoy together. Conversations with new people may be inspirational or thought provoking. Venus in Sagittarius is very indulgent. She loves butter, sugar, booze, decadent chocolate mouse and anything exotic. With this in mind, use caution when it comes to excess! Venus will remain in Sag until January 23rd, when she enters conservative Capricorn. If your New Year’s resolutions involve limiting your intake of indulgences, this may prove to be difficult while Venus is in Sag. But knowledge is power! By acknowledging the energy, try to fulfill this energy by expanding in other ways.
Continuing in the indulgent energy, the Moon conjoins excessive and jubilant Jupiter on New Year’s Eve. This is perfect for bringing in the New Year with good company, cheer and delicious treats! Salud!!
Thank you 2015, for a beautiful experience. This has been one of the most exciting and enlightening years of my life. I will never forget you. Thank you. Welcome 2016, and cheers to another excellent year!! Happy New Year to all!
Aho Mitakyue Oyasin. May Mother Earth and all her inhabitants be awakened to our unity, and the highest LOVE of the Universe.
Love, peace and healing to ALL....

Venus entered mysterious and private Scorpio on Friday, but I didn't really feel it until the Moon conjoined with her on Monday.
The Moon illuminates. And often when a planet changes signs, we don't notice a shift in energy until the Moon highlights it.
Just some observations: I noticed that on Monday, I holed up inside all day, recovering from the weekend. I did not leave the house until later in the day when my boyfriend and I went on a hike in a new area of the Metroparks. It just happened to be a trail along a wetland swamp.... Scorpio is a water sign and rules the murky dark waters, hiding a trove of riches beneath.
The following day, I went to work. When I'd left on Saturday, I had a FULL book of clients. But by the time I came in yesterday, I learned that 3 people had rescheduled. No big deal. Then 3 people no-showed. This never happens. I only did ONE haircut yesterday!! Unbelievable! I'm not sweating it though because I understand why: people went into hiding with Venus in Scorpio, conjoined with the Moon in Scorpio! People were subconsciously tuned into the energy, craving privacy in their thoughts, solitude, and time to recharge their batteries.
Scorpio is all or nothing: if you don't feel like doing something this month, you probably won't.
During this time, we will be exploring which of our commitments are worth our time and energy, and which activities aren’t worth our energetic investment. By the end of the month, we may decide to release that which we aren’t wholeheartedly passionate about, simultaneously committing harder to that which brings us more joy, empowerment, or even to that which is more lucrative.
Venus will remain in serious Scorpio until December 30th, when she enters party-time Sagittarius. New Years Eve should be a blast! Beware of going to excess because Venus can be very indulgent in Sag.
One Love, One Planet
(***All times are read for Eastern Standard Time; for Pacific Standard Time, subtract 3 hours***)
Uranus and Pluto have been in a stressful square since 2011. Pluto, the planet of the underworld has been transiting Capricorn since 2008 when the US market crashed and initiated the recession. Uranus entered Aries in 2011, with the widespread use of smart phones revolutionizing daily life. These two transformational planets are in a stressful square. The self-absorbed culture where anyone can become a media celebrity, rivals the crumbling infrastructure of capitalism and the people’s decaying trust in the government’s ability to protect. It truly is a fascinating time to be alive.
In fact, the times we are in now will be remembered to be just as pivotal as we remember the 1960’s. For it was in 1967 that Uranus and Pluto conjoined, beginning a new cycle of cultural transformation. Fast forward, we are now in the phase in which the same themes are being rehashed just as loudly: civil rights/racism, marijuana, and surveillance (Watergate 1972); policing the world, grassroots spirituality and consciousness, as well as the exploration of space. It’s not that these issues ever went away, it’s just that they are now on the front page of the paper again.
Uranus and Pluto are finished making exact squares, but their influence is nowhere near complete; especially when transiting planets activate them.
Mars will be activating the Uranus/Pluto square for the next two weeks. We will be asking Mars related questions surrounding the evolution of our society, namely, how we are going to deal with violence in our society. Whether you consider your community to be your neighborhood, your country or the whole planet, we cannot deny the madness.
“To change the world, we have to change ourselves.”
We are our own authorities. We can create ripples of kindness in the world. Why do people commit atrocious acts? One might speculate that the person never received enough compassion from others, from their government or from the world; that they felt hopeless, and that too much darkness suffocated their light. We must remember to be the lighthouse for others in these chaotic times. For most of us individuals, that might be the extent of what we are able to do.
Collectively, however, bigger issues are on the table. Gun control is a hot topic in congress. It’s too often that a hostile gunman shoots up a school, movie theater or Planned Parenthood. These are symptoms of an ailment. Our society is sick and needs a remedy. Hopefully we may see some healing progress over the next couple of weeks, particularly with the seeding of the New Moon.
Tuesday December 1st, we have a grand trine in fire, sparking intuition, initiative and action. If we are tuned in, we can potentially receive some really great ideas. Get inspired by breaking the routine today. Take a different route home or do something different this evening. Break your own rules if you have to! It’s a day for play. The Moon goes void in Aries at 10:09 pm EST, inviting you to relax and go with the flow.
The Moon enters Virgo at 5:09 am on Wednesday. We will be back on track today, minding the details of a potentially industrious day. The Moon touches the Sun, Saturn and Neptune today, inviting us to work out some of the details in the pursuit of our big dream (we’ll have ample opportunity to work with this energy for the next couple of months). What mini-adjustments can we make in our routines that will invite the grounded manifestation of this goal? We may get some clarity and/or take action towards this aspiration today.
On Thursday, December 3rd, we are aware of that which holds us back. Most likely, it’s our own self-sabotaging in the way. We are our own worst critics, and sometimes we nitpick ourselves to defeat. Today, we are conscious of the glass wall between here and our goal. There is a desire to expand out of the confines of our own imagined prison. Today is ripe for breakthroughs and clarity. Vesta enters Aries today; we are ready to bravely take action from the core of our truth. We can only be honest at this time; feigned interests will wither.
The Moon is void of course for most of the day on Friday. Mercury in Sagittarius squares Jupiter in Virgo, inviting grandiose claims and ample exaggeration. Today is not a good day to buy a new car, for example, as its assets may be overpromised and under-delivered. Be wary of information today, as the truth will be a slightly deflated version of that which falls on your ears. We can also be careful that we don’t stretch the truth ourselves. This can also be a blabbermouth aspect, or someone who has zero filter.
Venus enters “all or nothing” Scorpio today, where she will remain until the 30th. During this time, we will be exploring which of our commitments are worth our time and energy, and which activities aren’t worth our energetic investment. By the end of the month, we may decide to release that which we aren’t wholeheartedly passionate about, simultaneously committing harder to that which brings us more joy, empowerment, or even to that which is more lucrative.
On Saturday December 5th, the Moon joins up with Mars in Libra. Mars is the action principle; Libra is relationship, harmony and beauty. We want to go out with our friends! This is activity oriented. Think movement, action, sports, exploring, cooking, artistry, creating.
Conversely, Libra also rules open enemies. So if Mars is behaving badly, there could possibly be confrontations or disputes today. In this sign, it’s possible to handle conflict cordially, but it’s not always possible.
On Sunday December 6th, we might get antsy if we don’t get moving. There is a buzz-ton of energy in the air and it’s not necessarily comfortable. If you thought this would be a lazy Sunday, you were wrong! Get physical, get to the gym or reorganize the basement. Mars forms an exact square to Pluto today. Think back to March of 2015: what were you working on? What were you processing psychologically? This month is another turning point in that story. When you clean out your physical closet, you are also purging your emotional closet. It’s a metaphorical duality that is redundant in our human experience. This is a period of releasing, renewal and redirecting of our energy. Break up the blocks and build yourself up. Evolve higher.
The Moon enters Scorpio at 6:26 am on Monday December 7th, and conjoins with Venus. We connect with the powerful women in our lives, or connect deeply within to our yin nature, the resourceful mama energy. Even if you are a man, you still have a receptive, nurturing, emotional yin side! When the Moon is in Scorpio, conversations tend to get a little deeper, and we reveal details that we wouldn’t ordinarily share.
On December 8th, we are inspired to try something new. We are feeling inventive, ingenious, inspired or be struck with a realization of sorts. It’s an unpredictable sort of day with a wild streak. Anything goes!
On Wednesday December 9th, the Moon goes void at 1:39 am with a sextile to Jupiter, remaining void most of the day, until entering Sag at 5:25 pm. There is a lot of potential for healing through prolonged self-reflection. The Sun is square to Chiron today, so we are still working on healing our troubles. We’ve been working with Chiron deeply since November. Last month, we became deeply aware of that wound which holds us back. On November 28th, Chiron stationed direct, signaling a readiness for us to move forward towards healings. Maybe we decided we needed therapy, received acupuncture or reached out to someone for help. Today is a turning of a new leaf in our healing journey. Be brave, look at it, and release it!
Mercury enters Capricorn today, and he sure is happy to leave Sagittarius. He gets along much better in Capricorn, where the mind behaves more patiently. We can be more ambitious, precise, practical and methodical while Mercury is in Capricorn.
Practicality persists again on December 10th when the Moon conjoins Saturn in Sag. We are concerned with concrete reality today. However, there is a bit of a dichotomy because there is also a desire to blow up the concrete. Simultaneously, there is an impulse to disregard everything you’ve been working towards, blow it off, run away and start over─ as if you were rebelling against everyone you love, the world, and yourself. Madness is in the air and people feel torn. Craziness and rebelliousness will most likely make headlines today.
On Friday December 11th, we have a NEW MOON at 19⁰02’ Sagittarius, exact at 5:29 am EST. We are beginning a new cycle surrounding our beliefs─ personally and collectively. Sagittarius rules the higher mind, universities philosophy, religion and the ancient mystery schools; foreigners, foreign land and the law are also under Sagittarian domain.
Collectively, the United States is at odds as to where it stands in foreign relations. What is our responsibility? How much is too much involvement? Immigration and the refugee crisis will continue to be a hotly debated topic worldwide. Many uninformed people grasp skewed perceptions of religion versus religious extremism. Not every Muslim is a terrorist and not every Christian shoots up a Planned Parenthood! This New Moon cycle will bring these issues under the microscope.
Where the New Moon occurs in our charts is where we will planting new Sagittarian seeds in our personal lives. Maybe we are inspired to understand something better that is “foreign” to us. Maybe it is university related, or we decide to enroll in a yoga teacher training program. The principle is “expansion,” and it really could be as simple as reading a book!
The Sabian Symbol for 20⁰ Sagittarius is “men cutting through ice, to save for the summer season.” We must break the ice, the glass walls that separate us, to ensure for a brighter future for the global humanity. The warmth of our compassionate hearts can melt the frigid ice of fear, solitude and ignorance.
Astrologer Blaine Bovee suggests that we think of ice skating or sleighs here, where blades on ice can be used swiftly and productively. Further, he says that “the 20th degree tends to be characterizes by ease, genius, creative flow… things happen in surprising ways... outside the realm of practical expectation."
Tensions are high on a global scale, especially when it comes to cultural norms. Based on Blaine’s deep intuitive understanding of these symbols, I would deduce that changes are going to unfold swiftly and surprisingly on a global scale, so let’s keep that fire of love burning! It’s still not widely accepted that we are all ONE, but one day it will. Hopefully soon. It’s the only way that we can all truly live in harmony on this planet─ every human, every plant and every animal. “You can’t have a world view if you don’t explore the world.” –Vanesa Salas
The Moon enters Capricorn at 1:46 am on Saturday, December 12th and conjoins with Mercury. It may be a fast paced morning with lots to do. Harmonious aspects are made with Venus and Neptune, allotting energy for grounded creativity, pleasant interactions with others, appreciation for love and beauty, and indulging in the arts and/or spiritual arts.
Sunday may not feel as pleasant as yesterday, but we have the power to use the energy wisely and channel it into something positive. The Moon conjoins Pluto, inherently transformational. Pluto rules compost. I like the metaphor of turning shit into gold. There’s always a silver lining; there is always a way to look at something in a positive light and to be grateful that the universe deemed you worthy of a challenge. That said, there is also a natural grieving process with trauma and loss; it takes time to see the light and eventually find gratitude, even forgiveness.
The Moon goes void at 6:07 pm. Let it go.
Monday December 14th, the Moon enters Aquarius at 7:59 am. It’s a nice day to socialize or to participate in group activities. The Sun squares Jupiter, so there is an element of overdoing. If you are going shopping today, be careful not to spend too much! Feminism and strong women will likely make headlines today, due to the Sun’s trine with Eris. Hillary may try to get a leg up in her campaign.
The Moon is a busy lady on Tuesday December 15th, and therefore, so are we! Many people are realizing that there are only ten days left to prepare for the holiday season! The Moon is talking to Mars and is still in speedy Aquarius, so there is a lot of potential to get things finished today. With a square to Venus, she feels like spending money. Again, like yesterday, there may be a tendency to overdo.
The Moon also conjoins Ceres today, Goddess of agriculture and nurturing. Scrooges may feel a nudge to do something kind for their loved ones (despite their scorn of consumerism), such as planning a dish to bring to mom’s house. Alternatively, when Ceres is in scientific Aquarius, this can also mean GMO’s (November 1st-January 30 2016). Last month, while we were consumed with worry for Paris, the FDA authorized the commercial sale of genetically engineered salmon. Labels are optional. This has of course angered thousands of people. We may hear more of this unfolding story this week.
On Wednesday December 16th, we have an early morning void Moon from 2:17 am-12:45 am, when the Moon enters Pisces. It’s kind of a quiet day in the heavens, so it’s a good time for us to do the same. “As above, so below….”
Aho Mitakyue Oyasin. May Mother Earth and all her inhabitants be awakened to our unity, and the highest LOVE of the Universe.
Love and healing to ALL....
