Break Time (Moon Void of Course)
Every two days or so, the Moon goes Void of Course. These are natural pauses in the emotional cycle and are best used for editing, researching, idea generating, reading, and napping.
- Tuesday, Dec. 29 - Briefly, late morning
Emotional Weather (Lunar Transits)
Today through Sunday afternoon, the Moon is in Cancer. It is Full today at 3:15 AM. New Moons are the culmination of roughly six month cycles. Think back to where you were in the middle of July. (Check your journal, if you have one.) What was beginning then that is coming to its culmination now? The area of your life in which you feel the Full Moon depends on where Cancer falls in your chart. Check your personal horoscope to see how this Full Moon effects you.
Sunday afternoon through Tuesday, the Moon is in Leo. Leo is the sign of children's literature, regal historical fiction, and unauthorized rock band biographies. Leo is associated with the Sun and the House of Creativity. The best way to honor the energy of Leo is to play! Entertain yourself and others. Party. Write something just because it's fun, and don't be afraid to show off a little.
Tuesday through the end of the year, the Moon is in Virgo. Virgo is the sign of health and wellness writing, lifestyle magazines, and tidying up. Virgo is the side of you that wakes up after Leo's bender and wants to do nothing but drink kale smoothies and do yoga for a year. Being in a Virgo mood can make you feel hypercritical at times, but it is the most discerning part of your psyche. If you've had a bad feeling about something you're writing and haven't known what's wrong, today is a good day to look at it again. You're likely to know exactly how it doesn't meet up.
Swiftly Moving Planets (Personal Planet Transits)
On Wednesday, Venus leaves Scorpio and moves into Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a fire sign, which means that we're getting a boost of extroverted energy just in time for all the New Year's parties. You may find yourself feeling more adventurous in love and in your art over the next few weeks. Embrace it because when Venus moves on into Capricorn, you're likely to feel much more practical.
Slowly Moving Planets (Outer Planet Transits)
Tonight, Uranus, which has been retrograde since the end of July, stations direct. Uranus is the planet of innovation, revolution, and shock. It has been moving through Aries since 2010 and will stay there until 2018 when it leaves temporarily for Taurus. As one of the outer planets, Uranus events are among those most likely to end up in the news, and Uranian events are likely to be more shocking when Uranus is retrograde because they take time to bubble under the surface before they explode. If inspiration has been coming to you in fits and starts over the past few months, you may find that things calm down now that Uranus has gone direct.
For best results, read for your ascendant/rising sign. If you don't know your ascendant, you can calculate it here.
