Lunar Forecast for the

NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS

This Forecast in effect
December 16-31, 2009

This is the season when we all feel joyful and excited, full of optimism and confidence, surrounded in a spiritual glow of giving, compassion and generosity. Right? Well in many ways that's true. Even if you don't celebrate a special occasion at this time of year, it's hard not to get caught up in the spirit of the festivities. Most of us are a bit more inclined to be a little nicer to those around us than at other times of the year.

And yet, it can also be a stressful time of year too, and this year is no exception. Don't be surprised if you feel like you're on a bit of an emotional roller coaster these days. Part of it is the season – from high expectations and pumped up excitement, down to physical and financial exhaustion. Your physical and mental energy might feel a bit stuck, ungrounded, lethargic or weary, perhaps without even knowing why. After all, all the TV shows and store windows say you're supposed to be cheerful, upbeat, joyful, warm and fuzzy, right? Don't let these pressures guilt-trip you for feeling whatever you're feeling. If you get overwhelmed, exhausted or stuck in cynicism (Bah humbug!), take some time out and make some special time just for you. Whether you love or hate this time of year, treat yourself to a relaxing massage or a movie; or bring out the best in yourself by doing something special for someone else. It doesn't have to be big, important, expensive or even cost anything at all. And perhaps it is best if it was none of those things – just simple, honest and in the moment. And if you need some extra support, don't be afraid to reach out and ask for it.

There is an abundance of astrological energy right now that can be very uplifting, healing and inspiring – as long as you don't try to force it to be something more than what it is. Let it come naturally, creatively or spontaneously. It probably won't solve all your problems, nor even the biggest ones, but it can bring you back into the moment which is where your point of power is. When you're in your body in the moment, you're not worried about what will or won't happen in the future. You're not hanging out with the "ghosts of Christmases past." And you're not being distracted and pulled out of your center by the sensory overload happening around you. Simply give yourself permission to just be who you are, to feel what you feel, to to think what you think, to see what you see. Find even just a moment when you can appreciate what you have. Find a peaceful center where you can detach (notice I didn't say disconnect) and let the world spin around you. Enjoy your moment, then let it go. Then let another moment come to you. Enjoy. Repeat. Respond. Act. Live.

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in GEMINI

This Forecast in effect
December 31, 2009 to January 15, 2010

You know those dreams you have where you're in a public place and you suddenly realize you're naked and you can't find anything to cover up with? You might feel a bit like that emotionally right now. Your soft underbelly might be showing, making you feel a bit vulnerable or moody. Alternatively, you might find you are barking, growling or hissing at people around you more than usual and perhaps not quite sure why this feels unusually intense. These are both different sides of the same mask you're wearing, where you're either in need of covering up your tender bits or you've covered up those bits with a mask made of granite and barbed wire.

This could get in the way of harmonious relationships and effective interactions. On the other hand, you might find this energy is very helpful for a creative project you have where you need to draw on your raw, feeling nature. It all depends on how you use it and how you allow it to flow inside of you. There is a rebalancing of your emotional nature happening. If you're used to being the one with the resources who helps others, you might find yourself in a situation where you need some help – and vice versa. Or, you could encounter an unexpected insight about what you secretly get out of helping other people or why you often look to others to nurture you.

This isn't about judgment – there isn't a right way or a wrong way to be – but there is some new awareness that is trying to reveal itself right now. We are all both givers and receivers. We all have a human need for the comfort and caring of others, as well as the drive to be strong enough to share that strength with others. Human nature seeks a balance between these qualities. The message of the planets right now is to acknowledge and take responsibility for how you create that balance between giving and getting support, as well as what kind of experience you need in order to complete that balance in your life. This is a time to discover that you are both father and mother, parent and child, giver and receiver, dependent and independent.

Happy New Year! And don't forget you can still get 10% off your astrology reading with me until Dec.31!
