For all of us, but especially if you’re a sensitive, empath or intuitive, ever since the Taurus eclipse on November 19th and the December 4th Sagittarius Super New Moon eclipse, the relentless emotional and psychic bombardment has escalated unabated. And there’s more to come.
To protect yourself from etheric dissonance, from jarring energy rollercoasters or feeling as if you’re cracking apart, set your inner filters to consciously discern between what’s coming from you and what’s coming from the collective fear, doubt and uncertainty. Notice it and let it go. Stay in neutrality.
In the outer world, this week will be marked by confusion and turmoil, as the Sun squares Neptune on Sunday, Mercury crosses the Galactic Centre and enters Capricorn, Mars moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, culminating with the Full Moon on Sunday 19th, when Venus turns retrograde conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron turns forward in Aries.
Arriving 48 hours before the Capricorn Solstice, the Full Moon at 27° Gemini on December 19th is amplified by the Sun crossing the Galactic Centre – our Homing Signal. It is trine Jupiter in futurist Aquarius and square Neptune in far seeing Pisces, delivering downloads of insights and data imprinted at an unconscious level. When the degrees of the Galactic Centre between 27° Sagittarius – 1° Capricorn are activated as at this Full Moon, an awakening of some sort is guaranteed, along with rapid changes, separations, crises, or stress as out worn ways of life are ended by the fallout from the eclipses.
Chandra Symbol Gemini 28 Full Moon
A cloud in the shape of a rabbit.
“Picturing the flux of life with extraordinary acuity. Witnessing with rapt fascination how everything moves, changes, and stays the same. Always watching, always just about beside yourself with the clarity of it, the pure suchness of this world. Immense difficulty in communicating and sharing this God’s eye view. Words will not contain it. You must find a physical language and an imaginative landscape that can be telepathically transmitted. You have inside, the greatest gifts to share and spread. And the challenge becomes to find ways to get it across that evolution is really happening, and multidimensional reality is already here now to bring us all alive, even when the outer mind is still drawing blanks on what the fuss is about.” – Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
As an Aries, this time of year is always a moment to stop, reorient yourself and take stock of where you are emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. It’s the week leading up to the Solstice and you will feel one shift after another as first your own planet Mars moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, Mercury crosses the top of your chart and Venus slows to turn retrograde on Sunday 19th. There’s more. The Gemini Full Moon coincides with Chiron the wounded healer turning direct in Aries. Instead of keeping on keeping on, step back and acknowledge how much you’ve been through over these last couple of years. Do whatever you can to soothe and calm your nervous system.
Assume your needs are reasonable and that your feelings are signals of something important.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
A combination of planetary shifts means that one way or another, your attention needs to be on your finances. Venus, your personal planet, turns backwards on the 19th for 40 days next to Pluto God of wealth. Mars moves into Sagittarius, your 8th House of money and resources and on the 19th the Gemini Full Moon brings endings and beginnings to your income stream. No matter how it plays out, issues of money flow, debt and spending will arise. Make this a holiday season that is affordable and resist the urge to splurge. Instead, be creative and up-cycle or re-cycle gifts. If you’re feeling emotionally unsettled, don’t try to push on, make self-care an absolute priority
Slow right down along with Venus, your guide for this lifetime.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
This is set to be a busy, intense week for you starting on Monday 13th, when your own planet Mercury and Mars both change signs. Mercury heads into Capricorn, where Venus is stationing to turn retrograde with Pluto on Sunday 19th. This is your angle of finances and partnerships- personal and professional- so until January 29th, don’t invest in any big purchases or sign on the dotted line. The 8th House is also a place of secrets, so don’t be surprised if a skeleton in the ancestral cupboard falls out over the holiday season. Make the very most of your annual Full Moon in Gemini on the 19th by spending time with those you love and reflecting on what has changed since your birthday 6 months ago.
Expect some deep and meaningful conversations.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
There will be no shortage of interesting undercurrents this week for you to pick up as an intuitive Cancerian. With Venus conjunct Pluto operating under the radar in your opposite sign turning retrograde on Sunday 19th, pay close attention to what’s not being said. Mercury joins them in Capricorn on the 13th so there will be lots of intriguing conversations. On the 19th, the Gemini Full Moon is in your hidden 12th House and by then, you’ll welcome the chance to retreat and think your own private thoughts. As it is aligned with our homing signal the Galactic Centre, keep a dream journal-it could be very revealing.
Preparing for the Solstice.
Leo Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
It’s going to be a busy and somewhat intense week ahead as both Mercury and Mars change signs and Venus turns retrograde at next Sunday’s Gemini Full Moon. Venus is in your angle of work conjunct Pluto, so there could be more gossip than usual, revelations of secret affairs or truth time when someone finally tells it like it is. Just tread softly and carefully and watch your stress levels. For you, the Full Moon is all about friends, groups, alliances. With Venus moving backwards, you may notice that some old associations have lost their lustre and decide to leave them behind. If so, take your time and exit gracefully with thanks for all you’ve shared together.
Knowing what matters.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
This week may feel like a game of musical chairs when just as you think you’ve covered all your bases, the music stops. Your own planet Mercury changes signs on Monday 13th, joining Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, your creative 5th House. The Goddess is slowing to turn retrograde at the Full Moon on the 19th, so if inspiration strikes, don’t wait, capture it before it flies by. If you have a project to market, do it this week as the Full Moon is making you and your career much more visible than usual. After another year of stop/start, take time to really think about your direction. Where and how do you want to invest your effort, time and love in 2022?
Make sure you spend as much time caring for yourself as you do for others.
Libra Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
Despite it being the holiday season, you might not be feeling the festivities and celebration. That’s due to your own planet Venus tangoing with Pluto and slowing to turn backwards on Sunday’s Full Moon. Whenever Venus is retrograde, as she will be until January 29th, it’s a time of reflection and this time it’s extra intense, even moody as it’s activating your 4th House of home, family and belonging. It’s the time for deeper conversations than usual, for some truth telling and for reconciliation and bridge-building. On Sunday the Gemini Full Moon sends you in search of some distraction-a great day to visit an art gallery, museum or exhibition giving you food for thought.
Take as much quiet time as you need.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
It’s going to be a week of intense emotions and conversations, as Venus tangos with Pluto slowing to turn backwards on Sunday’s Full Moon. Your own planet Mars and Mercury both change signs on December 13th, putting truth time forefront and centre stage. If you have a difficult or sensitive topic that needs cards on the table, pause and work out what you want to say and how you’re going to say it- 90% of any communication is non-verbal. In your solar chart, the Full Moon shines a spotlight on sex, intimacy, death, inheritance, taxes and shared finances-all big and important areas. Tread carefully.
Avoiding emotional landmines.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
It’s set to be an intense and busy week for just about everyone, but you’ll be on fire. Action planet Mars zips into Sagittarius on Monday 13th to give you an energy boost until January 24th. Meanwhile Mercury joins Venus and Pluto to turn your attention to money, especially money you earn and attract. Venus is slowing to turn backwards on Sunday’s Full Moon until January 29th, so put the brakes on unnecessary spending. Capitalise on your skills and assets, make a plan to add an additional income stream and to increase your prices, if you’re self-employed. The Gemini Full Moon puts the spotlight on partners-personal and professional- and the ball is firmly in their court.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
There’s a lot of planetary energy in your sign now. On Monday, Mercury joins Venus who is tangoing with Pluto and slowing to turn retrograde on December 19th until January 29th. Money is going to be a focus in that time as is what you value and what you’re worth. Make sure you under-promise and over-deliver while Venus is retrograde. You might also get the urge to change an aspect of your appearance-if you do, avoid cosmetic surgery and stick to surface tweaks. On Sunday 19th the Full Moon is your annual nudge to think about work, duty and responsibilities. Are you taking on too much? Can you delegate and step back from being captain of the universe?
Put work back in context as just a part of your life.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
It may be the season for socialising but in your solar chart a gathering of Venus, Pluto and Mercury in your hidden 12th House suggest that you are craving some private downtime to sit quietly, gather your thoughts and do absolutely nothing at all. This part of your psyche is linked to your ancestry and heritage, so if you’re drawn to researching your distant relatives, follow it up. It might shed some helpful light on the present. On Sunday 19th, at the annual Full Moon in Gemini Venus turns retrograde until January 29th. Kick back and let yourself have fun with children or a box of paints or throwing pottery-whatever makes you happy.
Give yourself the gift of time out.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: December 12-19, 2021
This week is going to be busy and quite intense for just about everyone, so, knowing this, see if you can adjust your schedule to build in some quiet time. Venus is tangoing with Pluto affecting your friendships, groups or networks as she slows to turn retrograde at next Sunday’s Full Moon. You might find yourself caught up in the crossfire between clashing or polarised groups at work, online or in your social life. Tread carefully. Fortunately, the Full Moon is lighting up home and family just in time for the holiday season and the more time you can spend around those you love, the better you will feel.
Let yourself rest and listen to what your body and soul are telling you.
