Wild full moon in Gemini, the shape shifting, trickster fairy.
The fire of a Sagittarius Sun continues to burn bright and hot, fueled by the air of a Gemini Moon. But what will we do with all this fiery, transformative energy?
During the holidays, old hurts and pain tend to knock at our door. We can use all this fiery energy to fuel old hurts and resentments. That painful dance is a tradition as old as Yule.
Or… we can choose something new this year; We can choose to drop our old stories and use the fire to create a magical new tradition for ourselves.
We can love and honor ourselves and our needs. And when we’ve filled ourselves up with love, it will spill out of us and spread into the world, blessing everyone around us.
We can use the magic of Moonlight and Fire to turn this time into a season of love. Or not. It’s our choice.

New moon and total solar eclipse in fiery Sagittarius, the seeker of spiritual truth.
This solar eclipse will only be visible tonight for a few minutes in Antarctica and the southern edges of South America and Australia. But don’t kid yourself; every eclipse delivers an energetic wallop to the entire planet.
And this eclipse event in Sagittarius has a signature energy that I can only describe as…
We are receiving a turbo-charged download of transformative energies. And it’s positive, life affirming, passionate energies this time.
So, the only question is, where in your life do you need a turbo boost?
Where are you aching to make a dramatic shift? Focus there. Now is the time for positive, creative, joyful action. Even a tiny baby step is better than no action at all.
No more whining.
Go For It.
New moon in airy Libra, the queen of justice and fair, balanced, egalitarian relationships.
A Libra new moon is the perfect time to sit quietly and contemplate if there are places in your life that are out of balance.
Look at your life like a loving gardener; even the most perfect, beautiful gardens require tending to stay balanced and beautiful.
What needs to be tended to in your life? What needs love and feeding? What needs to be cut back? What needs to be removed?
What is missing from your garden? What do you want (or need) to add to make your heart sing? How can you create a little space for the things you truly love and desire?
The ancient Goddess of Justice is weeping over the Bill Cosby case.
She reminds us that a legal system created and controlled by the patriarchy is not capable of dispensing JUSTiCE for all.
The rage of women is palpable in the air. The only question is… what will women decide to do with their rage?
The great work of our time is to bring the feminine into this culture. And it is not an easy path. How does each one of us contribute? Believe it or not, it’s done in the most personal ways. Take time to listen to your dreams. Write them down. Take time to recognise that there are things going on within you that need to be felt, or said, or lived, or grieved. Pay attention to these things both in yourself and in the people in your life. Pay attention to the authentic self.

New moon and solar eclipse in airy, shape shifting, trickster Gemini.
Eclipses are said to amplify our thoughts and intentions a hundredfold or more. Both positive and negative thoughts are amplified. So, why not harness that power?
Take time to think about what you REALLY want.
What do you want to amplify in your life?
What do you want more of?
What nurtures you?
What do you need to grow and bloom?
Focus on what feeds your body-mind and spirit. What will it look like, taste like, feel like when you get what you desire?
