Through the cold darkening depths of a Northern canyon a man all bundled up in furs leads a shaggy reindeer. ~3rd Degree of Cancer
Entering the current Moon phase already feels disheartening. We have journeyed long and hard towards our destination and yet here we stand feeling as though we have done everything right and are not progressing easier. Chiron, Venus and the Midheaven are all in disagreement with our Moon now. Are you giving up? Are you striving for your true desires? The climate feels competitive and harsh. Authenticity is the only survivor. Decide whether you are really in tune with what you want. Ask God for it and then let go of how you get it. Align yourself totally. Not everyone is going to agree with your methods but you will know if you are being true to yourself by your personal feelings of success. Said by Charles Darwin, “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

From the proud new warship of Britannia in token of her maritime power flies the Union Jack in calm dignity.~~18th Degree of Capricorn
Again, it is not our job to make things happen. Our job is only to determine what we want and try to keep a sense of dignity about our fears and desires. Let us each do something new with our valuable skills. The journey has been worth it. Events, maybe unexpected, happen now through the laws of attraction. We are learning to send out the right signals and there is an effort in the cosmos that is orchestrating success. Good karma. We will get a chance to fly our flag and have our proud moment. We can call it in the name of what is good. Individual striving creates a successful society. It is all beneficial. William Manchester said, “Men do not fight for flag or country, for the Marine Corps or glory or any other abstraction. They fight for one another. And if you came through this ordeal, you would age with dignity.”

A SERIES OF ROOMS IN A HOSPITABLE HOUSE, OPENING ONE INTO ANOTHER, ARE DECORATED GAILY WITH HOLLY AND MISTLETOE ~4th Degree of Gemini
Our Moon becomes new while dancing with the Sun closely in a conjunction. This provides an ideal social situation where we can be in sync with our consciousness and our subconsciousness. That makes it easier to stay in step with the dance. There will be a feeling of comfort and fellowship if you allow it. Enjoy some neighborly fun! All of our circumstances leading to now are what formed this current experience. What do you think is good to clear out of your life to make sure there is plenty of room for more enjoyment? Think about it. Dreamers with a balance between what is real and what is fantasy are best. In the background many will feel the standoff between Venus and Pluto. Stand still if you don’t know what to do. Not everybody gets the steps to a dance at first anyway. Be sure you are seeing things clearly and proceed as justified. Allow sensibility. John Kendrick wrote, “Whose heart doth hold the Christmas glow Hath little need of Mistletoe; Who bears a smiling grace of mien Need waste no time on wreaths of green; Whose lips have words of comfort spread Needs not the holly-berries red— His very presence scatters wide The spirit of the Christmastide.”

TINY CHILDREN PLAYING IN SUNBONNETS ~~18th Degree of Sagittarius
It is not our job to make things happen. We are just here to figure out what we want. How do you protect yourself? Find people to communicate with that speak a similar language to your expression, even when you are in a strange new place.. You can avoid feeling burned by taking the right precautions. The tone of the Full Moon will be a feeling of joy, freedom and blessings. When a challenge comes to the way you are thinking, stop moving and consider the source, the care and the time put into it. Rethink and do whatever brings you into the present moment. Gail Sheehy once said, “With each passage of human growth we must shed a protective structure (like a hardy crustacean). We are left exposed and vulnerable–but also yeasty and embryonic again, capable of stretching in ways we hadn’t known before.”

THE WOMAN OF SAMARIA COMES TO DRAW WATER FROM JACOB’S WELL ~~7th Degree of Taurus
Our cycle for this moon phase starts out with Venus squaring Saturn to provide the ethics in our current situation and the Moon conjuncting the Sun to add to clearer awareness. Doing our chores can add to success. Socially we have been quite active as of late and it is time to look at how our labors have fared. For instance, are we drawing deep enough from our own well and the well that life presents? Take a look around you and try to have an objective awareness of how this all fits together. What is coming is the position we have created for ourselves through the laws of attraction. By helping others and tapping in and tuning in we can progress as good influences and alleviate feelings of lack. Ravi Zacharias wrote in, Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message, “The Samaritan woman grasped what He said with fervor that came from an awareness of her real need. The transaction was fascinating. She has come with a bucket. He sent her back with a spring of living water. She had come as a reject. He sent her back being accepted by God Himself. She came wounded. He sent her back whole. She came laden with questions. He sent her back as a source for answers. She came living a life of quiet desperation. She ran back overflowing with hope. The disciples missed it all. It was lunchtime for them.”

OBEYING THEIR CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS ~~21st Degree of Scorpio
Our cycle peaks with an indecisive tone as the Full Moon opposes the sun yet aspects Uranus, Neptune and Pluto to goad us into wanting to do something to change our circumstances. Remember the position you made for yourself at the New Moon and know that it is now manifesting. How you continue from here will determine how you wane in the next two weeks before the next cycle. Check to make sure you are wielding your authority in a wise manner. Are you domineering? Are you reliable? Are you alienating others? Any lessons that you have chosen not to learn will be returning. Use your emotions as your signal of how you are behaving. Ogden Nash, an American Poet, said, “There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all.”
This week we experience a full Moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn. Also Mercury moved into Cancer and Venus is changing signs into Gemini. This will change the tone of communication and attraction. Follow-through will be low and people seem to be unavailable. It feels like wishes won’t come true. Cycles started two weeks ago at the new moon have reached their fullest. Now they will begin to deteriorate and decline in a very natural way. Avoid premature actions, confrontations and/or dawdling. Simplify. When faced with a down trend it is best to take the tone down to the simplest of simple and limit anything frivolous. This will aid in the development of good character.

Focus on being constant. It is a very good time to be generous and review things real well. The issue is about strategy. First you got to shut everything down, rule out influences and push out what you don’t want. Then you’ll want to tell everybody else about what you are thinking. You’ll have a confident edge, expressive emotions and a live audience. So then why do you feel inhibited in some ways? Don’t worry about it. Concentrate daily on what is needed from you. You are headed for a successful future by being someones beneficiary. Jeff Oseroff once said, “Never buy a car without having a mechanic look at it. When a car’s put up on a lift, that’s when you see all those things that you can’t see from the outside.”

Focus on group gatherings. There is something nagging at you that makes you feel like you must do something unplanned. You feel hesitant, but this is a larger goal than just you. No matter what kind of welcome, you will still feel empowered towards unity. Focus on the source of a problem that may arise. The issue is about manifestation? What are your methods? You push out anything you don’t want in your space. You stand tall for the truths that you hold dear. There is love and creativity in your heart. Let your inner parent tap into that and coax your inner child. Receptiveness will lead you to a very keen awareness. Tune in. Seneca once said, “True wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in molding our conduct according to her laws and model.”

Focus on encouragement. You have created a situation in which your responses are dependent on others. Your life has become theirs. The issue has to do with not making an effort. You may feel as if nobody supports what you represent, so you allow others to influence you. That would be fine, except that this leads to a deteriorating trust in yourself. This week will be spent on restoring that trust and gaining insight. You have a decision to make about what direction is healthier for you. Do your research, listen and move beyond your indecision into your true essence. Dr. Joyce Brothers once said, “Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.”
