We may be thinking about planning some travel or new adventures, especially around the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 12th. If you have your Sun in any of the Fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius this can feel particularly positive. There is a strong urge to leave the pressures and problems of 2023 behind.
For the first half of the month, Neptune is strong. Very positively, this can make us feel more idealistic. We will want to move away from any corruption, lies, injustice and inequality in society, and move forward in a spiritual context of unconditional love and Oneness with all living beings. Please also be more aware of your dreams around this time, as they and your intuition may be heightened. Keep a dream journal if you don’t already.
This can bring in a deeper spirituality, a connection to Source, and a sense of unconditional love for all living beings which is hard to define but incredibly important as an energetic shift. This month can mark the beginning of much greater psychic sensitivity which will continue for some years, and this can even bring in some paranormal experiences, tuning into more ethereal realms.
However, for other people, this may bring in a feeling of disillusionment, confusion, or overwhelm, partly with the speed of things that has been happening this year. If deceits are revealed in high places, or traditional structures are no longer quite what they seem, it may feel quite destabilising - we are not sure if we have solid ground to stand on. This is because the old order is breaking down and we will see more of this next year, and is a necessary process to allow a more equal, loving and compassionate society to be birthed.
Bring yourself back to centre
Events will also start to happen very quickly from now and for the next decade. So this is an excellent time to find a simple way to bring yourself back to centre. This can be candle-gazing, being in nature, bare feet on the Earth, or using a simple breathing technique: shut your eyes, and drop into your belly. Without forcing or effort, keeping everything very soft, breathe in for four, hold for two, and out for six. If this feels too much, breathe in for three and out for four. Gradually let the breath breathe you, and then as you feel comfortable pause slightly at the end of the exhale, maybe just for a couple of seconds. As you are able to extend this, the more you will feel like butter melting in the sun, that you feel peaceful and even blissful. Within minutes this simple exercise is changing your physiology. You are reducing your stressful cortisol levels in your blood, and boosting your immune system. The more you do this, the more you will feel that you are operating from your centre, and the less buffeted you will feel by external circumstances. All free, easy, and anyone can do this from home. This simple exercise over time is truly transformational.
The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 12th feels energetic and positive. Sagittarius is the sign linked to being able to see bigger and better opportunities for the future, hope and optimism. The need for freedom is strong, but there is a sense of inherent enthusiasm and trust in a higher order. Sagittarius is one of the signs linked to the law, and truth, so we may see some legal developments around this time. The Sun and Moon are aspecting the chart for the Euro currency, so some changes may be occurring there, and these become more evident in 2024.
We have a Full Moon in Cancer on the 27th, and we will feel an even stronger need than usual to hunker down with family and loved ones. Nurturing others and being nurtured yourself are strong themes, needing to feel safe and secure.
Throughout December we will continue to question old structures and systems as we sense our inner authority more fully, taking responsibility for our own lives. Revolutionary energy demanding freedom will continue to be evident through the month and will be very strong all through 2024.
I’ve been speaking and writing a lot this year about the importance of our choices: are we operating from fear or love, are we victims or co-creators? 2023 has been the big year for this choice, and our choices have now been made as this major aspect begins to fade. We have chosen our path forward.
In the last few days of the month we have a beautiful aspect from Jupiter, helping to launch us into 2024 with optimism, hope, vision, and an expansive view of the more loving future we would all like to create.
Blessings to you all.
