We are entering our last solstice of the year on the 21st of December. This is a very stressful time of the year with many layers of endings, the longest night of the year. It can be a very emotional time of the year especially when we put so much pressure on ourselves to meeting other peoples expectations in not only the gift giving end of things but also trying to meet other peoples expectations of getting together during the holiday season. You may find some communication hiccups during this time so take the time to ask questions and clarify. Try not to make any commitments into the New Year that you will struggle to live up to, whether that is time, money or attention.

Uranus is on an inner spiral moving backwards through Aries Where you may re-visit some inspirational ideas, and work on new energy sources. Unleash your genius on the world … this is a great time to plan your next move in the New Year.
Neptune … Our planet that dissolves boundaries and limitations, the window supporting understanding and wisdom of what is beyond the physical world and our solar system. Neptune continues through Pisces so take care with experimentation of drugs and alcohol and Be MindFul of collective or clan/pack mentality, tune into Love not Hate.
Pluto… Our planet of change, control (ego) and power. Pluto slowly plods along moving through Capricorn. Pluto continues to push for change in our old and outworn structures of dictatorship and inflexible leadership. Let go of the need to control and simply BE a powerful advocate for change.
The only control we truly have is with our own actions, open and allow the destruction and disintegration of the old ways in order to get to the re-Birth, and move to the next level of Be-ing.
Step outdoors and connect to your early evening sky, do it again in the early morning just as the Sun peaks out from the horizon, consciously wake from one dream and step into another. The lunar cycle is a monthly marker giving us a time line in which to complete old tasks, then birth the new. Connect to our genetic/collective habits and patterns of our multi-dimensional bodies.
As above So below.
