tuesday december 6th-
at 2:05am ceres in virgo sextiles mean black moon Lilith in cancer, she sextiles retrograde pallas at 6:24am (while both pallas and lilith align just before noon today) and then ceres triggers the nodes tonight! a lot is up today around mothers/children, health, the environment and Mother Earth. PAY ATTENTION! ceres in virgo is discerning and sees the parts so she can assess what needs to be brought back into balance for health and well being. tending to the physical aspects of life (body, health, work, well being) is key.
mercury at 29 sagittarius squares jupiter at 29 pisces at 2:05am, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Greater Benefic and planet of Greater Truth. this can be great for teaching, travel and mind expansion AND they are square and at the karmic 29th degree. any conversations (or arguments) about Truth and who is right/who is wrong can be exacerbated right now. finding balance between speaking up/expressing and listening/receiving is key!
at 11:06am retrograde pallas cojoins mean black moon lilith at 26’18 cancer- aligning the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess with the fierce Dark Feminine for the 2nd of 3 times (1st was 11/2). with both Goddess energies in the sign of the moon- emotions, feelings, mothering and nurturing are in focus. pallas is very intuitive and empathic in cancer- she sees the bigger picture through her watery psychic senses. lilith on the other hand is focused on what is in the shadows emotionally and in regards to home, family, women and children. put these two together and we can see clearly what is going on that is hidden- but we can also react emotionally to what we see. both Goddess energies are opposite pluto, trine neptune and jupiter and square eris. the opposition to the patriarchal tradition (pluto) can cause an uprising in the feminine as they take a stand (eris). but this all must be guided by our psychic, intuitive and mystical awareness as well as our Higher Hearts (jupiter/neptune). powerful feminine energy is available to tap into this week!
mercury moves out of sagittarius and into capricorn at 5:08pm- shifting the conscious mind and intellect from fire to earth, yang to yin, expansive to contractive. mercury in capricorn is serious, focused and responsible in communication. he thinks before he speaks and is rooted and grounded in his perception. just be aware of the shadow side of mercury in capricorn- only believing what you can see, touch, taste, smell or hear. this can also express as pessimism, cynicism or depression. balance is key.
at 9:10pm ceres in virgo sesquiquadrates the mean north node in taurus and semisquares the south node in scorpio, creation tension between the Great Mother and the nodes of destiny and karma. turning points in matters pertaining to Mothers, children, the Earth, environment and more can be incoming. ceres shows us what is out of balance in our world, health, family dynamics and environment. it’s up to us to listen and make course corrections before it’s too late.
wednesday december 7th-
venus in sagittarius approaching the Galactic Center quincunxes pallas (last night at 11:36pm) and mean black moon lilith at 1:42am, sesquiquadrates the mean north node in taurus/semisquares the south node in scorpio at 4:05am and squares ceres in virgo at 6:45am- bringing the Goddess of Love and Beauty aligning the with the center of our Galaxy into tension with the Wisdom Goddess, the Dark Goddess, the Great Mother and the nodes of destiny and karma. venus has some Truths she is sharing but she may also need to listen, too. questioning our beliefs and self righteous positions is key right now. the Truths incoming can be emotional, family related, about the earth and the environment and more. just because we don’t want to see it or accept it does not mean it’s not True.
at 5:34pm the sun in sagittarius quincunxes retrograde uranus in taurus, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and Revolutionary. both sagittarius and uranus want freedom at any cost. in extreme ways this combination can create excess, impulsivity, reactivity and restlessness. if our desire for the new is simply a covert means to escape being responsible for the past- this can catch up with us eventually. finding balance between stability and change, responsibility and freedom- is important right now.
the full moon at 16’02 gemini is exact at 11:08pm EDT- marking the midway point of the lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in sagittarius on november 23rd. that new moon was conjunct mercury and venus- the mind and heart- seeding new cycles in thinking, feeling, intellect and emotion. being willing to question what we think we know and come back to beginners mind so we can be open to seeing new Truths has been key in this lunar cycle. the full moon is EXACTLY conjunct retrograde mars by 5 seconds and is square neptune – triggering the mars/neptune squares. gemini is about information but can be so light and surface with information- just copy pasting it off the internet and then putting it into a blog. sagittarius is about marinating in the information so it becomes knowledge and turns into wisdom. the shadow of sagittarius expresses as self righteousness and hubris- holier than thou standpoints. i am the teacher, you are the student- shadow sadge has to gatekeep information and thinks he is the only one with the wisdom. watch out for conflicts and arguments about themes related to Truth, information, teachings and wisdom! more on this lunation can be found in my Lunar Insight here- https://divineharmony.com/lunar-insight/full-moon-in-gemini-commitment-to-the-truth-at-any-cost-12-7-22/
thursday december 8th-
at 12:41am the sun in sagittarius opposes retrograde mars in gemini, creating tension between the two yang masculine planets in the signs of Truth, beliefs, mind and thoughts. a battle of minds, ideas, or beliefs is possible right now. the key is to be willing to come back to beginner’s mind and see from other perspectives. if we are so focus on our own viewpoint we will not be willing to see another side of things. with neptune square the whole thing things can be quite nebulous, confusing, even deceptive or dishonest. make sure you are being direct, clear and above board- and do your due diligence and use discernment when dealing with others today/this month/this mars retrograde cycle!
pluto in capricorn trines ceres in virgo at 7:51am- aligning the planet of transformation, regeneration, death and rebirth with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. pluto/ceres can be a deep and powerful time of dealing with outdated, toxic or stagnant structures or situations in the world around us or in our home/family lives. opportunities to see what needs to be done to clean things out or clear things up can arise right now. opportunities to get real about the shadow of situations personally and collectively is the first step. the next step is to DO SOMETHING about it. this is not the time to sit on our butts and think everyone else will do it or think that it will all blow over. it won’t. it’s time to get clear and discerning and then take initiative and deal with things head on- in career, health, family and more.
at 9:00am retrograde uranus in taurus sextiles juno in pisces- linking the planet of change and revolution with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. this can be great for bringing new energy into relationships of all kinds- marriage, romance, business or financial partnerships. uranus is showing us clearly where things are stuck and stagnant and what we need to let go of to grow! pay attention! relationships that are based on spiritual growth and being of service can get a huge boost right now!
friday december 9th-
at 7:55am venus at 29 sagittarius squares jupiter at 29 pisces, creating tension between the two Benefic planets. at best these two can be great for having fun, socializing and enjoying life! but these two at the karmic completion degree can also overdo, overspend, overeat and be overly Love and Light so as to avoid facing/seeing/dealing with the shadow. balance is key.
venus moves out of sagittarius and into capricorn at 10:54pm- shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty from fire to earth, yang to yin, freedom loving to responsibility focused. venus in capricorn values tradition, commitment, loyalty and respect. she is deeply committed to what and who she loves and will stay even when things get tough in order to do the work to move through. the one thing to be aware of is that venus in capricorn can stay way beyond the expiration date. if we are holding onto relationships out of fear of safety and security or for money reasons- venus can shine her Light on that in the comings weeks of her transit through capricorn.
saturday december 10th-
at 10:58am mercury in capricorn semisquares saturn in aquarius, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. some serious and perhaps depressing conversations or thoughts can come in today- but the point is to help us GET REAL. we need to see reality first before we can really know what is possible. dealing with things in work/career or friendship/group situations demands mastery and integrity today.
venus at 0 capricorn sesquiquadrates retrograde uranus in taurus at 12:20pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Rebel and Revolutionary in the sign of venus. upsets and reveals are possible in Love and money situations. this could be freeing and liberating or it could be unexpected and unwanted. either way more freedom needs to come in- and possible endings need to happen before new beginnings can fully anchor in.
