"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Gemini Full Moon and Winter Solstice 2013

   Welcome to the busiest Full Moon of the year! It's apt that the Gemini Moon occurs around the Holidays, with all the social activities, planning and errands. We are certainly having to make mental checklists each day... did I get that done... what am I forgetting... who do I need to call now?!  The adaptability of this Mutable Air sign can be a both a blessing and a curse with so many people running to and fro. The Sun  in Sagittarius opposing this Moon adds to the expansiveness of wanting to do it all... be at every party... not leave anything out... there are many reasons to be cautious here!

   My suggestion would be to decide (make up your mind...) to do only so much. Perhaps the communication you need is to let others know you are waiting to hear from them, that you have met your limit, and it's time for them to report back. Maybe you are planning an event , making a new schedule or negotiating with neighbors, siblings or co-workers. All of these possible scenarios require research, focus and adjustment or compromise. The Gemini Full Moon will illustrate where you are expending your mental energy so be sure to use your thoughts and words wisely.

   The Sun enters the last Cardinal sign of the Zodiac, Capricorn, to kick off the Winter season on Saturday, the 21st. This is known as the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year for daylight, and marks the point in the year signaling the return of the Light and longer days ahead. This is also the time for pulling in and getting work done in preparation for the coming thaw several months from now. Capricorn energy is best used by focusing on business and career goals and taking care of practical matters. The Solstice point is the important beginning of the "new" year and it is wise to set one's intentions now and take actual steps to secure growth in those areas in the coming year.

   Winter Solstice has significance for mundane (worldly) matters, as well as in one's personal chart. Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart shows you where your personal responsibility lies.  In the first house, you want to be taken seriously and need to be able to back up the image you present to the world. However, with Pluto transiting this sensitive first house, you have been experiencing basic changes in your physical structure, how you look, or are transforming into a whole new persona.

   In the US chart, the Sun is affecting the area of Government structure and financial concerns; the need for change is obvious in any system that isn't working the way it was intended. Sometimes systems have to change to be viable once more. This time of year always points out where we need to work hard and with Pluto in Capricorn, where transformation is taking place.

   Remember, while looking at how to structure your business, career or your life, to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!  Happy Holidays Everyone~
