By the Light of the Moon - December Moon Report
The New Moon occurs on December 14, and occurs in sidereal Scorpio in the lunar star of Jyestha, represented by the symbol of a protective amulet. Jyestha is a lunar star located in the stinger of the constellation of Scorpio in the sky. This particular real estate is called the ‘Via Combust’. Translated: a fiery road. It is the most intense location in the cosmos and considered the seat of purification and transformation. Jyestha likes to “win” and is associated with the throne, royalty, and government. He takes no prisoners. Venus, Mercury, and Ketu (south node of the moon) are all sitting beside the Sun and the Moon in the 10th house. It’s a pile-up of five celestial concepts brainstorming together among the lunar stars that inhabit the Via Combusta. This unusual feisty and regal alignment reflects the current global consciousness. It also represents the Earth’s deep request for change on the planet.
A total solar eclipse will occur at the Moon’s descending node of the orbit on December 14. The effects may continue for 45 weeks following, then reach a crescendo. The exact vector of this crescendo will depend on how many folks are willing to become the change the world needs to see. By healing ourselves individually, we can soften the adversities that may come. This is our free will.
Eclipse Tips: 1. Allow everyone their own opinion. 2. Stay in your own lane 3. Love thy neighbor as thyself. 4. Forgive yourself and others. 5. Play with your pets more. 6. Get more rest. 7. Bless your food. 8. Practice gratitude. 9. Watch funny movies and laugh more. 10. Dance and sing more. 11. Help one another. 12. Meditate and pray more. 13. Eat fresh food (no leftovers).
Remember not to make any major decisions, make significant purchases, start anything new or travel during the eclipse window, which is two weeks prior to the solar eclipse and one week following. Stay home and rest. Time becomes compressed during eclipses, causing us all to be more sensitive and feel like we are in the twilight zone. The molecules in the air during an eclipse are more inflammatory, sticky, and volatile, suppressing our immune systems, causing food to spoil faster, and encouraging the spread of more bacteria and virus including spiritual viruses. Use energy medicine or a talisman to protect yourself. Light a candle or burn some Palo Santo and ask your beloved ancestors, angels, and the “Powers that Be” to provide insightful, loving messages during Dreamtime and meditation, inspiring you to put a smile on your face and be a light for the world.
The Full Moon on December 30, will occur in sidereal Gemini within the lunar star of Ardra, symbolized by the teardrop. The ruler of this lunar star is the north node of the moon we call Rahu, the mover, and the shaker. Rahu’s job is to stir the pot, but always for our highest and best. Buckle up and get ready for an amazing ride. All full moons shine the light on the darkest corners of our lives, both globally and personally. If you had a burning question around the time of the new moon two weeks prior, the full moon may reveal the answer to that question.
Eleven days prior, on December 21, the Earth will experience a planetary alignment that has not occurred in more than 6,000 years. Mercury, Sun, Mars, Saturn, and the Moon will all stop and align in the same direction, at the same time on the same path and gradient. This galactic alignment is a cosmic solar patterning that will take three days to fully line up and will end on December 25. This may trigger an opening of a cosmic portal which could last seven days. Celestial scholars are predicting a great awakening, a very special time on our planet where the heavens may become crystal clear momentarily. Keep your eye on the sky. This phenomenon could affect our atmospheric conditions and raise our states of consciousness if we choose and if we are ready.
The full moon in the lunar star of Ardra on December 30 may bring tears of joy and hope that the world has been longing for. Go outside under the full moon and allow the moonbeams to kiss your cheeks, cool system inflammations, and impart a radiant glow (soma) into your being. This will mark the end of 2020, a massively challenging year for us all.
The difference between the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac is about 23 degrees. Both systems have value. Sidereal astrologers believe the qualities of the signs are not related to the seasons, but rather to the specific portions of the ecliptic as measured against the fixed lunar stars.
