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.
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
