monday december 20th-
at 7:36am retrograde ceres cojoins the mean north node at 0’07 gemini, aligning the Great Mother with the node of destiny and evolution. this is the second ceres/north node conjunction- the first was on august 24th, 2021. ceres/north node reminds us that our evolution and growth requires nurturing and caring for ourselves, others and the blessed earth around us. the north node in gemini is a call to open our minds, be curious, teachable and come from beginners mind (versus thinking we know it all already which is shadow south node in sagittarius). this is amazing astrology for messages coming through women/beings with wombs (physical or etheric if you have had a hysterectomy). womb-an (woman) means heavenly or divine womb (an is sumerian for heavenly and divine). womb-an carry the space to gestate babies and to create new worlds and possibilities. use your voice and/or a pen to bring through the messages incoming right now. what is coming in is destined and is opening the gateway towards our personal and planetary evolution- so pay attention!!!
mercury in capricorn trines retrograde uranus in taurus at 12:18pm, aligning the lower mind with the Higher Mind in expansive ways! pay attention to the thoughts, ideas, inventions, communications and connections incoming into your life right now. aha moments and bolt out of the blue awarenesses or happenstance meetings are divinely inspired/guided. PAY ATTENTION!
tuesday december 21st-
at 2:52am retrograde ceres moves out of gemini and into taurus, shifting the Great Mother from air to earth, mind to body, thinking to sensation and feeling. ceres in taurus nurtures and nourishes through the body, food, sensuality and connection to earth. with her conjunction to the north node yesterday and her shift back into taurus just before the nodes of the moon move themselves into taurus and scorpio- we have the Divine Mother leading the coming nodal sign shift. this is a time to tune into your needs for nurturing and nourishment. if you have used your mind to avoid feeling your feelings or being in your body- a new journey is commencing that focuses on bringing you fully down and in. the body is a gift and the body is the temple. honor it!
the sun at 29’58 sagittarius quincunxes retrograde ceres newly at the 29th degree of taurus at 7:17am, bringing tension between the conscious self and ego that wants to expand into Spirit and the Great Mother that wants us to come fully down and into the body. when Spirit and body find Union we have true enlightenment- as enlightenment is not about imagining figures of Light or going up and out- but is about fully embodying the Light and coming all the way down and in. tuning into where ascension is happening before descension has fully anchored is key ;)
the sun moves into capricorn at 7:59am PST- marking the Solar Gate of Yule and Winter Solstice and a new yearly solar cycle commencing (in the southern hemisphere this is the Solar Gate of Litha and Summer Solstice)! the sun in capricorn is hard working, disciplined, responsible and authoritative. this is the sign of the mountain goat who gets to the top of the mountain no matter how hard the journey is. we have staying power right now and we can focus on what we want to build in our lives. just watch out for the shadow side of the sun in capricorn: being overly austere, rigid, controlling, perfectionist and emotionally repressed.

at 9:44am the sun in capricorn quincunxes the north node 0’04 gemini, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the node of destiny and evolution. we are being shown what is blocking us from growth right now. where is your mind closed or rigid and it’s preveting you from seeing things from a new perspective? this is the last hurrah of the north node in gemini! tomorrow the nodes move into new signs. tune into where any last residue of patriarchal, limited perspectives need to be released. open your mind!
wednesday december 22nd-
from 3:09am to 9:04am mercury cojoins juno at 13’42 capricorn and they both semisquares jupiter at the 29th degree of aquarius- bringing important insights, communications and/or information into awareness. the focus is on partnerships, marriage and relationships (juno’s domain) but also work, career and business relationships. jupiter can reveal possibilities and opportunities but the tense nature of the aspect can also exacerbate our tendency to hubris or being too Love and Light without assessing things from a realistic, grounded place. balance is key.
the mean nodes of the moon change signs at 12:36pm- with the north node moving into taurus and the south node moving into scorpio (the true nodes move in mid january 2022). the nodes stay in signs for about 18 months and they are tied to the eclipse cycle. we just had the first taurus eclipse 11/19 and the last sagittarius eclipse 12/3- heralding the changing of the nodes happening today (the eclipses will now offically be in taurus/scorpio). the north node shows the path of growth, destiny and dharma. the south node shows the path of the past and karma. the south node is what is easy for us to stay stuck in- the north node is what we often resist until the Universe pushes us out of the nest! with the south node in scorpio we have the plutonic realms of intense emotion, fear and obsession to naviagte. scorpio/pluto rules all the taboo topics of society- sex, death, money, power and control. these are things we are often either obsessed with or afraid of- so dealing with the south node in scorpio demands we face our fears and obesssions. the north node in taurus shows us that the path of growth and destiny requires that we ground down, slow down and come fully into the body (embodiment). where scorpio is always intense and cathartic- taurus is peaceful, harmonious and present to what is. taurus is FORM while scorpio is transFORMation. the shadow of scorpio is things are always transforming, always dying and being reborn, always intense. the beauty of taurus is that we can embrace form, find stability and grounding- and not need to be on guard waiting for the other shoe to drop. in shadow work and somatic healing- the way to a down regulated nervous system is in dealing with the past. until we do the past actually is very much present and we are not really being present as we are simply acting out/reacting to the past. so these nodes show us the work that needs to be done (scorpio south node) and the gifts available if we do so (taurus north node). the north node is also transiting the Pleiades right now- so downloads from our Galactic Family and Cosmic Community are incoming!!! tune in, don’t tune out! for more info on how this affects your sign listen to the weekly and lunar monthly horoscopes <3
at 10:51pm mercury in capricorn sesquiquadrates the north node and semisquares the south node- making the first aspect to the new nodes in their new home signs! pay attention to conversations, communications, information and insights arising today. messages about your personal (and our collective) nodal journey in the coming year and a half are incoming!
thursday december 23rd-
at 11:17pm saturn in aquarius squares retrograde uranus in taurus, the third and final squares between these two that occurred in 2021. this has been one of THE BIGGEST aspects of 2021 (the first was 2/17, the second 6/14). saturn is the old, uranus is the new. saturn is the past, uranus is the future. saturn is stability and tradition- uranus is change, upheaval and new things coming in. we are in between a rock and a hard place. discerning what is the baby and what is the bathwater is key right now. saturn is in the sign of uranus- which can focus and discipline the energy of change but can also block, limit or repress the rebellion and revolution that is building within and without. uranus is in taurus- which can be great for waking up in the body and changing our values- but it can also exacerbate the desire to check out of the body, escape and can also coincide with big earth changes. can you feel the earth moving under your feet (metaphorically but also perhaps literally?). do some honest self checkins so you can discern what is old/karmic that needs releasing and what is new/growth oriented that needs embracing, anchoring and embodying. and make sure your ego is not informing this as attachments can be insidious and can block the path!
friday december 24th-
at 6:57am neptune in pisces squares vesta in sagittarius, creating tension between the Higher Heart and planet of illusion and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of focus and devotion. neptune/vesta is lovely for channeling our Higher Love and compassion into focused devoted action that is altruistic and for a Greater Purpose. yet this is a square aspect and we can also find exacerbation of the tendency towards illusion, deception, escapism and not seeing the whole picture. with both bodies in the spiritual oriented signs it’s important we are questioning our beliefs- spiritual, intellectual, political and otherwise. take off the rose colored glasses so you can see the Truth!
saturday december 25th-
at 2:37am mars in sagittarius trines now direct chiron in aries, aligning the Will and Drive with the Wounded Healer. chiron is currently in the sign of mars- so there is some extra potent energy present right now for healing around the masculine, will, drive, ego, agency and self confidence. with both bodies in fire signs- embracing our will and pursuing our passions with consciousness is key!
at 4:02am retrograde venus cojoins pluto at 25’43 capricorn, aligning the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the Lord of the Underworld for the 2nd time this month! this is a potent conjunction that can amplify passion, sexuality and intimacy but can also dredge up all kinds of darker energies like jealousy, possessiveness, power/control dynamics, manipulation and more. venus is triggering the pluto/eris square TWICE in decmeber due to her retrograde journey. it’s important to pay attention to what is old paradigm, toxic, stagnant and stuck in our lives. where are we holding onto the old out of safety and security. where are we resisting change? where are we adhering to patriarchal standards of who we should be, what we should do and how the world is? this is a time of stripping away and getting to the Truth of matters- in relationships, finances, our values, self worth and self Love. pay attention to what is incoming today as it’s revealing information about venus’ upcoming descent (blog about venus retrograde is coming soon!)
jupiter at 29’21 aquarius squares retrograde ceres at 29’21 taurus at 10:13am, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess in the sign of grounding, security and embodiment. this can be great for enjoying life but can overdo via money, spending, gifting, over indulgence and more. on the positive side this can be a great day to enjoy life and be with family!
at 11:23am mars in sagittarius sesquiquadrates retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the God of War and the Goddess of Discord! mars/eris can be touchy, irritable and reactive. mars in sagittarius wants his freedom and eris will disrupt things. luckily this is a minor aspect- so hopefully the storm passes quickly. use the fire in creative ways- passion, authentic expression and FUN!
sunday december 26th-
at 1:29pm mercury in capricorn sextiles neptune in pisces, aligning the mind and intellect with the planet of intuition and otherworldly awareness. this is a great aspect for dreams, creativity, compassion, imagination and psychic gifts. with mercury in practical grounded capricorn and neptune in watery, mystical pisces we can link body and Soul in ways that help us anchor in and materialize our dreams, visions and inner knowings. pay attention to insights, communications, dreams and intuitions incoming today!
have a blessed week…
