Aries (Mar. 20-Apr. 19) The Christmas Full Moon in Cancer-Capricorn illuminates needs for home, family and nurturing with desires for autonomy, maturity and accomplishment. And with revolutionary Uranus resuming forward motion on the same day, you are ready to break free of any self-imposed or self-created prisons that have kept you from pursuing and maintaining a healthy balance of both. Embrace joy and choose love.
Taurus (Apr. 19-May 20) The world is promised an unconventional Christmas this year as wildcat Uranus squares the Cancer-Capricorn polarity of the yuletide Full Moon. And you may find yourself also in unfamiliar territory, feeling a bit out of control and uncertain or uncomfortable with recent changes. But, ultimately, everything is exactly as it should be. Acceptance and compassion are allies now. Relax and enjoy the show.
Gemini (May 20-June 20) Upsets and unusual circumstances lead to awakening, breakthrough and enlightenment. When things are different than we are used to, we adjust according to our perceptions and needs. Whatever comes your way this Christmas week, embrace it with all your heart and soul. The Great Mystery is exactly that, a great mystery. New life and new challenges arrive each day. Breathe deep; embrace life.
Cancer (June 20-July 22) The Capricorn-Cancer Christmas Full Moon shines light into your heart and soul. Deep feelings and memories of Christmas past glimmer and glow as you walk through the uncharted territory of new and different worlds. Whether it’s foreign soil or good ol’ home ground, things have changed. Safety and security, home and family stand strong in a rapidly changing world. Stick to the rules and follow your heart.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 22) If you’re looking for a traditional Christmas this year, you might as well throw in the towel. The stars are aligned for unusual, unconventional and bizarre celebrations of love and light, peace and good will. Creative, electric displays and inventive presents are par for the course. Keep your eyes open and your heart willing as more than one old friend surprises you. Do what you can to stay jolly, share laughter and give love.
Virgo (Aug. 22-Sep. 22) A Christmas Full Moon guarantees illumination and light, especially if you live in the snow-covered mountains or plains. Seeing is believing, so keep your eyes open for jolly Santas and happy reindeer as they fly through the air with gifts and goodies. Who knows what is on the way? Best be prepared for the unique and unusual this year as one of the most unconventional yuletides in history graces the heavens. Have fun!
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 22) A Christmas Full Moon so close to winter solstice indicates an extra-potent, pivotal point in the holiday season and year. Be aware and awake as electric Uranus squares this lunation, adding plenty of snap, crackle, pop to the annual, conventional sparkle. Do your best to relax in the glittery glow, take time out when you need to and don’t allow others to pull you too tight or too thin. Keep it simple; give love and choose joy.
Scorpio (Oct. 22-Nov. 21) Scorpio loves and supports Capricorn just like Halloween sets stage for Christmas. The holidays are born on all hallowed eve, at the end of harvest, and reach a pinnacle on New Year’s Day. That said, it’s time to feel the spirit and enjoy the joy. This year, however, be ready and willing for a change of venue or change of heart as planets align for something new and unusual. Just be sweet and embrace the beauty.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec. 20) With Master Teacher Saturn in early Sagittarius and Mars and Venus nearby, you may be feeling inspired, uplifted and motivated, protected and blessed, as well as ready to get down and serious about whatever has the most meaning and value for you now in your life. That’s a big apple, but one you finally seem to have an appetite for. First enjoy this rather unique and unusual holiday. Good tidings are in the wings.
Capricorn (Dec. 20-Jan. 19) Your Happy Birthday month comes this year with a Christmas Full Moon and a rockin’ rolling celebration of love and light. Prepare for the unusual, unique and bizarre rather than the conventional, traditional and time-honored. The world has changed and so have the holidays. Find what you can to hold on to and let go of the rest. Embrace the new and different. Find the creative spirit in your home and heart.
Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) You may discover this Christmas to be just right for you this year as ruler Uranus puts an unconventional, electrically-charged sparkle on the holidays and makes it one of the least traditional celebrations of your life. Sound bizarre, or just right? Whatever the manifestation, don’t lose sight of the season’s inherent message and spirit. Give from the heart, be kind and compassionate, share love and choose joy.
Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) Peace on Earth is a traditional Christmas wish, but is it just another naïve dream? Like Santa Claus? What to do? Share the spirit of peace whenever and wherever you can. Give it to those you know and those you don’t know. Gifts of compassion and loving-kindness awaken the heart and soothe the soul. Thoughts are real and energy is catchy. Full Moon light illuminates a path of grace. Follow the light and walk in beauty.
