Here are Tarot messages for each zodiac sign for the month of December. These apply not just to your Sun sign but also to your Moon and Rising signs. These are general guidance messages and may not resonate with everyone. Take what resonates and leave the rest. Have fun reading them, and if you do come across similar situations in life during the course of the month, apply the guidance included in these messages.

Aries

Ariens, December is a month of renewal, de-cluttering, and clearing the old to make way for the new. Some areas of your life may undergo a shift which at first may seem chaotic. But through this chaos comes order, so don’t resist. Misunderstandings may arise with those around you, so be clear about what you say and mean. Competition surrounds you. But if you recognize and know how to channel your strength, you will overcome all obstacles. Be more expressive in your relationships. Sometimes words have to be backed up with action. Wonderful moments in luxurious settings are likely to keep you mesmerized. Your relationships will gain more strength this month. An important epiphany will hit you at work. You will find more clarity and a sense of direction about your purpose. You will also need to be mentally active in order to give your best to work. A new opportunity is likely to come your way, Ariens, and it will bring the much-needed mental stimulation you have been waiting for. Stay balanced and practice moderation when it comes to your health and well-being. Healing is underway. Be patient with the recovery you are expecting.

Taurus

Do you believe in magic, Taureans? Whether you do or not, magical moments await you this month. You will feel supported by the cosmos and your intuition will communicate more strongly with you. Pay heed and do not brush off the inner wisdom that seeks you out. It is also important to not let your emotions overwhelm you. Decisions are best made weighing in the facts and by staying practical. Apply logic and attain emotional mastery. Love can seek you out through social events and celebrations. If you are single and ready to mingle, show up at places where you are likely to meet new people. Engagements and wedding bells are also in the air for some of you. Keep your relationships exciting by going out and doing different things together. If you are already in an established relationship, giving your partner some space and connecting with your friends may just be the ticket this month. Some of you may feel demotivated and disconnected at work. You may be searching for more inspiration or perhaps, looking for something new and exciting that can stimulate you. Opportunities will come by, Taureans. Projects will be offered. Be open to exploring all your options, even if they don’t look too promising on the surface. Avoid overworking, and take a break to recharge from time to time. Important information concerning your well-being will come to light. This is a wake-up call. Take good care of yourself and pay attention to the red flags. Recovery is also on the cards for many of you who have been through a challenging time with your health.

Gemini

Geminians, a stressful situation is seen coming to an end this month and with this end comes a new beginning. Do not mourn for what is gone; instead get excited because new horizons await you. This is an excellent month to travel to far and away places. Opportunities will seek you out, so just be willing to accept and explore. Singles, it is best to focus your energy on yourself this month. Nurture and nourish your precious selves. Enjoy your independence and fall in love with yourself. Some of you may meet a very practical, down-to-earth person as well. Stay grounded. Relationships in general will require care and support in order to flourish. At work, all may not seem well. You may be feeling uncertain about your path. Don’t rush into decision-making. Trust your intuition. This is not the month to take risks and place your complete faith in others. Gossips and lies may create tension, so stay extra cautious. When it comes to your health and well-being, avoid overindulgence. Treat your body with care and compassion. Watch out for emotional eating and excessive consumption of alcohol.

Cancer

Being a water sign ruled by the Moon, you are naturally sensitive and attuned to the Lunar cycles, Cancerians. In December, capitalize on these lunar cycles to manifest your dreams. Set new intentions for the New Moon and release what you no longer need in life during the Full Moon. Notice how your energy shifts from time to time and take good care of it. There will be days when rest and withdrawal will be important for you. Do not ignore this need. Your focus should be directed toward the future and not the past. There is a dream calling out to you this month. Follow the whispers of your heart. Things are moving quickly in personal life and relationships this month. Communication will be more swift and opportunities will come out of nowhere. Some of you may travel for love or with your beloved. Spice up your sex life. Someone new may sweep you off your feet. But don’t expect commitment, settling down, and planning for the future just yet. Go with the flow and have fun. When it comes to career and work, don’t let your emotions do the talking, Cancerians. Be firm and vocal about your needs. Take charge. You may come across someone in a position of authority who expects nothing but the best and can be a bit demanding. The only way to please this person is by delivering the results. Make sure you don’t do a choppy job and use your intelligence to solve problems, effectively. You will finally start seeing the results of the efforts you have put into your health and well-being. That diet plan or the exercise program will start showing you positive signs, if you have followed the rules, painstakingly. Be a little patient when enrolling in new programs or starting a new treatment. Changes don’t always happen overnight.

Leo

December’s energy offers you plenty of creative stimulation. You will have loads of new ideas and creative urges that can’t wait to be given form. Use this energy wisely and create something beautiful and unique. A new emotional beginning is also in the cards for you. This could show up as a new friendship, a proposal, wedding, the birth of a child, a new offer, etc. Do not dismiss the intuitive nudges you receive, Leos, for they will carry the messages and guidance you are seeking. Your confidence and charisma will win you the admiration of many in personal affairs. Stay positive and own your power. If you are single, be ready to be swept by proposals and date night invites. Your social life will put you in the limelight. Know that you deserve nothing but the best and that’s what you will get. Established relationships, too, can use some warmth and affection. Don’t just be a lover but also a friend to your partner and find ways to make your love life exciting. A stressful situation is coming to an end at work, Leos, and you can finally heave a sigh of relief. The change may not be what you expected, but at least you don’t have to suffer and struggle anymore. You will gain clarity on a matter. If things have been tough, know that new beginnings are very much on the horizon, even if it doesn’t seem like it right now. Let go of the old first and stay optimistic. Also, don’t put blind faith in others at work. Stick to tried and tested methods where health and well-being are concerned. Overindulgence may lead to complications later on. Cut down on stuff that can be bad for your health. Make exercise an important part of your routine and do not succumb to laziness.

Virgo

Virgos, you are called the perfectionists of the zodiac. But there are times when one has to be flexible and bend rules where necessary. Your stubbornness can create many hindrances for you this month, so be open to trying out new methods and techniques where old ones are no longer of use. Helpful advice may come from a professional or a wise person. Do not shy away from asking for help and guidance. This is an excellent month for learning a new craft, enrolling in a course, or picking up a new subject to gain more knowledge. A news of victory is also on the cards for you. Some of you may have the chance to go on a world tour or an exotic new destination on the map with your beloved. Even if you are single, travel and explore new places. You never know how much fun you can end up having or whom you might meet. Some relationships are undergoing a big change this month, for the highest good. Be open to embracing this change and welcome the new chapter that awaits you. To some, this may mean reaching a new milestone in the relationship. Or, it could also mean moving onto something better and new. You may have a restricted view of yourself and your potential when it comes to work. It is time to start thinking outside the box and tap into your potential. You are ambitious and there is a way to make your dreams come true — only if you free yourself from all the limitations that you are placing on yourself. Attain freedom on a mental level first and you will soon know how to proceed and bring about the desired change on the physical and material level as well. Explore alternative healing techniques. Your emotions may affect your well-being and make you prone to mood swings and even a mild sense of depression. Get help if necessary or learn to manage your emotions well. Hormonal changes could affect your health as well. Be more compassionate toward yourself.

Libra

Librans, this is a time of doing, not just dreaming. There is a danger of getting caught up in daydreaming and maybe even buying into illusory thinking. An important decision has to be made this month and the fear of making the wrong choice may paralyze you. If you don’t know what is the right choice for you, make a list of the pros and cons of each choice and look beyond the surface. Do not waste too much time daydreaming. If you are looking for love, push yourself out of your comfort zone and explore all possibilities. This may include travelling, taking up a new hobby, and so on. Look beyond your immediate environment and expand your horizons. Struggling relationships could use a third party intervention or a mediator to bring help. Travel with your loved one is also on the cards. At work, a situation could make you feel trapped this month. Don’t let fear get to you. Find effective ways of dealing with this situation. Some of you may need to question your current path. It is possible that you are stuck in a stressful or an unhappy job just for the money. If yes, ask yourself if this job is worth the bargain. Explore your options. Avoid greed and obsession, as they will lead to the road of unhappiness in the long run. Too much stress could lead to anxiety or other stress-related issues when it comes to health and well-being. You may also be more accident- or illness-prone. Take all the necessary precautions for your safety and well-being. Watch your temper.

Scorpio

Blessings and gifts are on their way into your life this month, Scorpio. You may the recipient of someone else’s generosity. Or, you may be feeling charitable this month. Be willing to share your goodness with others in the form of financial gifts or any other help that you can offer. If you are caught up in a difficult situation, help will find its way to you, unexpectedly. Be careful to whom you loan your money. Caution is advised in personal affairs, as someone may not be acting from an honest place. Do not put too much trust in others, especially if you have your doubts about them. Singles, be careful around people who seem too good to be true. Lower your expectations, as others may not always fulfill the promises they make. At work, do not challenge or question the status quo. Instead, learn to fit in and accept the traditional ways of doing things. If you want to progress, you may need to align yourself with those in a position of authority. Build your network and form strategic alliances, as this will help you in your career. Listen to the advice given by a mentor. Rest and rejuvenation are highly recommended for you this month, Scorpios. Do not wait until you reach a point of burnout. Find effective ways to deal with stress. A break or a retreat could do you a world of good.

Sagittarius

You will mostly feel drawn toward intellectual pursuits in December, Sagittarians. The focus will be on learning and relying on your knowledge to navigate through the month. A detached view will help you see things clearly and make the best decisions, so don’t be swayed by emotions. A highly intellectual, sharp and knowledgeable person may play an important role in your life. This person can aid you in learning something, but don’t expect them to be sympathetic. Relationships will need work this month, Sagittarians. Do not expect them to work out on their own. Do what is necessary to show the ones you love that you care. If you are going through a rough patch, know that you can still salvage your relationship if both parties are willing to put in the efforts. Singles, your focus may be on work and not romance this month. If you want to spice up your love life, find time for love and make date night plans. Work could be exhausting in December, Sagittarians. Prioritize and cut away distractions to make the most of your time and finish the tasks on your to-do list. Do not overburden yourself, else you may be in for a burnout. Take a break and de-stress from time to time. Avoid taking on more than you can handle and do not hesitate to ask for help if you cannot handle things on your own. Your health also needs attention, Sagittarians. Most of the exhaustion could come from work, and brief periods of illnesses may be seen this month. Seek medical attention when necessary.

Capricorn

The last month of the year brings the energy of completion into play, Capricorns. It is time to let the past go by tying in all loose ends and preparing for a new cycle of beginning and growth. You will notice that situations will resolve on their own or sometimes, an ending will be inevitable. Embrace this ending. Your connection with people from around the world is strong this month and can be used for your benefit. Travel is very much on your cards, especially to a new destination, perhaps even overseas.

Relationships and personal affairs may not be easy this month. Challenges may create a sense of detachment between you and your partner. Financial matters may create tension in established relationships as well. Be more compassionate towards each other. Singles, this may not be the month to find your lucky guy or gal. Do not overspend on dates. This is an important month for work matters, Capricorn. You will gain more understanding of your current path and will know whether to continue on the same one or switch. Some of you may feel drawn to a new line of work as well. You will also get rewarded for your efforts this month. You are likely to achieve a deeper understanding of your purpose. Self-care and nurturing are highly recommended this month for you, Capricorns. Ask your body what nourishment it needs and do things that make you feel good on a mind, body, and soul level. This is a fertile period and news of pregnancy is on the cards for some of you. Spend more time outdoors.

Aquarius 

Aquarians, mental blocks may be keeping you stuck in a situation. Try to change your perspective and be willing to explore your options. Where there is a will, there is indeed a way. You also need to work on changing your perceptions about yourself. You have a great deal of energy and potential to take your dreams further, but negative thoughts about yourself may be keeping you from making any progress. Do not feel victimized. Love may seek you out through work. You may find a connection with someone you work with or someone you meet in a professional setting. In established relationships, it is possible that you and your partner may be dealing with a practical situation. As long as you team up and work things out, this will not only strengthen your relationship but also help you overcome the minor obstacles in it. Avoid taking shortcuts at work or dealing with a situation in an underhanded manner, as the consequences will not be pleasant. Work smart but don’t do a choppy job. Others may have hidden agendas, so be wary of putting blind faith in people you work with. Keep your integrity intact. You are likely to feel more energetic this month, Aquarians. Put this energy to good use. Start a new health regime, if you are feeling motivated.

Pisces

Many projects will successfully conclude this month, Pisces. This naturally puts you in a relaxed and blissful state of mind. Take it easy and indulge yourself a little. If security and stability was a problem in the past, you will feel a lot more balanced this month. Your hard work will pay off. Treat yourself to something nice and special and enjoy the fruits of your labour. It is okay to slow down the pace of life sometimes. If you have not yet reached your goal, keep at it. You are close to the finish line. Selfish and hidden agendas could create unpleasant experiences in personal life. Be careful who you trust in matters of the heart, Pisces. If you want to leave someone or escape a situation, make sure you communicate your feelings honestly and don’t do things in an underhanded manner. If someone seems too good to be true, they are. Do not buy into persuasive talks. You are making good progress at work and word of your skills is likely to spread far and wide, bringing you appreciation and more business. Do not let initial success get to your head, though. Continue excelling at what you do and you will go places. This is a good month for business, and many will seek you out for your services. A promotion may also be in line for many. When it comes to health and well-being, do not be impulsive. Take a steady and cautious approach. Recovery may be slow but that does not mean progress is not happening. Be patient. Continue following your routine and stay focused.

In a riveting discussion Wayne Morris interviews CE founder Joe Martino on the Breathing Deep podcast. They explore making sense of our current world through a spiritual perspective. In the episode, you’ll  explore what Collective Evolution is about, its history and objectives of investigating current events and the world via personal transformation and expanding consciousness. They discuss the power of curiosity, belief vs. knowing, what is truth, and how the failures of modern science dogma are contributing to public confusion. We talk about the pitfalls of navigating “conspiracies”, confirmation bias, the polarization of the public discussion around Covid and how we can individually and collectively determine truth in a media landscape of deceit. What is the role of spirituality in this process of sense-making? Click here to listen to or download the episode

Intuition Is A “Superpower” Representing One of The Highest Forms of Intelligence

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A number of experiments have shown that human intuition is quite real and in some cases can be measurable.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you use your intuition when it comes to decision making in your life? How often do you trust your gut instinct and follow your heart?

Mainstream science has been catching on to the fact that non-physical aspects of the human being are not only real, but they can be grown and developed into powerful tools for personal development and use. Non physical phenomena, like intuition, remote viewing, telepathy, and precognition (to name a few) for example, have been studied at the highest levels of government for decades. Various nations have poured millions if not billions of dollars into these programs for with demonstrated repeated success, but despite this fact these findings remain heavily unacknowledged, ridiculed, “classified” and in many cases chucked in the “pseudoscience” bucket.

It’s understandable, new information and discoveries have always been heavily opposed and “scoffed” at by intellectual authorities, especially if these discoveries don’t fit within the accepted framework of knowledge. There’s a general tendency to dismiss ideas that go against the grain and conflict what we’ve previously convinced ourselves is truth.

So, what exactly is intuition? A good way to describe it is a gut feeling, a sense, or a feeling about something. It’s arriving to some sort of truth about something, an event or experience without using any type of analytic reasoning. Intuition has been measured, which is why the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) admitted to developing methods to develop and measure this phenomenon for their soldiers.

We have to understand what gives rise to this so-called ‘sixth sense,’ says Peter Squire, a program officer in ONR’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Combating Terrorism department. Today’s Navy scientists place less emphasis on trying to understand the phenomena theoretically and more on using technology to examine the mysterious process, which Navy scientists assure the public is not based on superstition. “If the researchers understand the process, there may be ways to accelerate it — and possibly spread the powers of intuition throughout military units,” says Dr. Squire. The Pentagon’s focus is to maximize the power of the sixth sense for operational use. 

As mentioned before, many interesting abilities that go beyond the conscious mind and utilize what some would call metaphysical aspects have long been used by governments and intelligence agencies. Perhaps one day the human race will use these abilities for progress and to better the human experience. It’s like technology, do we use it for the good of humanity or do we use it to build more powerful and destructive bombs and weaponry? This is why we here at Collective Evolution always emphasize that humanity needs a shift in consciousness. Our discoveries and developments don’t really matter, it’s more so the consciousness behind those discoveries that do. This is why we believe that the greatest and most potent form of change comes from within.

Dr. Judith Orloff, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA told Forbes that, “In my my private practice, I work with women executives who come to me to develop their intuition. They see it as a ‘superpower’ to use in all decisions at work as well as a guide for how to be good leaders and organizers” According to Dr. Orloff, scientists believe intuition operates through the entire right side of our brain, the brain’s hippocampus and through our gut (digestive system has neurons as well).

Alexandra Mysoor, the writer of the Forbes article goes on to explain:

When the neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in your gut fire up, you may be feeling either “butterflies” or queasy sensations. Pay attention to those. It’s no accident we use the term intuition and gut feeling interchangeably because science has now shown us that our gut has a brain of its own, a second brain so to speak. In fact, our gut has an entire network of neurotransmitters called the enteric nervous system.

The body is truly an amazing puzzle, and we probably haven’t moved beyond the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering what we are actually capable of.  For example, a study (meta analysis) in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding precognition. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to an event that has yet to occur. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured in the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

Pretty cool, isn’t it? Another article written for Forbes written by Bruce Kasanoff by explains,

Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly “knowing” the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.

Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. “In my scientific work, I have hunches. I can’t explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. That’s the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didn’t do computations. Nor did she.”

A paper published in 2008 by Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) explains,

Intuition is widely regarded as a key source of inspiration in medical diagnosis, technological innovation,business decisions, artistic achievement, and scientific discovery. Based upon an analysis of the lives of numerous scientific icons, Root-Bernstein concluded that “Virtually without exception, the greatest mathematicians and scientists assert that the development of this pictorial, visual, kinesthetic, or generally sensual algorithm (associated with intuition) is the basis for scientific thinking. But what is intuition? Given its central role in advancing science and civilization, one might expect that this topic has been a keen subject of inquiry, especially within academic psychology, for many decades. Surprisingly, until recently it has been studiously ignored. This may be because the quasi-magical, non-rational nature of intuition presents an embarrassing challenge to science, which prides itself on the power of rational knowing. Intuitive knowledge does not appear to function like the methodical interferences associated with rational thought.It arises “in a flash,” or “out of the blue,” sometimes with correct answers to thorny scientific and technical problems, elegant solutions to complex mathematical theorems, and complete scores for intricate musical compositions.

The Institute of HeartMath alongside Radin conducted an interesting experiment a few years ago. They explain,

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

This study showed that the heart, alongside the brain, has some sort of intuitive intelligence.

The Takeaway: We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn from this information it can help us better ourselves and others.

We live our lives constantly thinking and analyzing, we grow up in school memorizing and we are not really taught anything about our feelings, emotions and intuition. Imagine the difference it would make in our individual and collective lives if we grew up learning how to trust our intuition, how to follow it and what it is? It begs the question, how many of us truly follow our heart? We seem to be thrust into a system that encourages us to find the best job and really think about our future. There’s nothing wrong with that but we have to ask ourselves, what impact does it have on us mentally if we do not follow our heart, our intuition? Are we seeing a big rise in drug use, depression and other mental issues because society forces us to in a direction we really don’t desire to go? Are we unhappy because we are not engaging in things that our heart desires to engage in? Are we not doing enough of what we love? Something to think about. Never ignore the voice of your gut, your heart, your intuition. It’s always telling us something and it’s time we ‘listen.’ This applies to all experiences, from deciphering information and truth to determining what path it is you want to take in life.

Dive Deeper

These days, it’s not just knowing information and facts that will create change, it’s changing ourselves, how we go about communicating, and re-assessing the underlying stories, ideas and beliefs that form our world. We have to practice these things if we truly want to change. At Collective Evolution and CETV, this is a big part of our mission.

New Moon In Capricorn: Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal

Avatar

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th throughout most of the world and on the night of the 12th in Central to Western North America. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Leo on January 28th/29th.

Capricorn season began on the December 21st solstice, just over three weeks prior to this lunation, and will end on January 19th/20th when Aquarius season begins. However, this New Moon will carry some of the Capricorn energies into the earlier part of Aquarius season.

This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Capricorn is associated with structure, ambitions, achieving goals, mastery, business, career, social status, responsibilities, duty, authority, governance, and hard work. It is cautious, worldly, conservative, and pragmatic. As an Earth sign, it has the qualities of practicality, reliability, solidity and being grounded. This element is very much orientated around the physical and material world. Negatively, Capricorn energy can be too serious, cynical, cold, controlling, and unrelenting.

New Moon Conjunct Pluto

This New Moon is aligned with Pluto which is also in Capricorn. This energy can be strong willed, focused, calculated, strategic, secretive, transformational, probing, deep, regenerating, sexual, cleansing, purging, and evolutionary. It can also be destructive, heavy, controlling, intense, subversive, obsessive, compulsive, jealous, power seeking, authoritarian, abusive, violent, manipulative, and dark.

Pluto rules investments, taboos, transmutation, hidden matters, repressed feelings, shadows, psychoanalysis, and the underworld. It is associated with power struggles, conspiracies, viruses, death, fears as well as fearlessness. This Plutonian energy will be strongly felt during the New Moon and in the two days following it, but it will still affect the entire Lunar Cycle.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will be there until 2024. Collectively, this is a period of major changes affecting government, financial structures, and business in a big way. This has been more obvious in recent years as Saturn, the Lunar South Node, and Jupiter have all joined Pluto in the same sign. This will continue to be a big theme over the remaining years of Pluto in Capricorn and beyond. We also recently had a Great Conjunction in Aquarius on December 21st which also reflects changes affecting society in a big way over a long period.

This Lunar Cycle can really trigger the collective impact of this energy especially considering the current landscape. To learn more about all of this, I recommend reading my Pluto in Capricorn article from 2017 here and my more recent Great Conjunction article here.

Mars Conjunct Uranus In Taurus Square Jupiter & Saturn in Aquarius

The action oriented Mars recently changed signs into Taurus on January 6th/7th and has since been approaching Uranus, the planet of surprises and rebellion, in the same sign. They are both applying squares to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius which are still in close proximity with each other.

During this New Moon, from January 12th-14th, Mars is in a square with Saturn which is the first exact aspect made between these four planets. Our actions can be faced with obstacles, delays, resistance, or limitations. Conflicts around boundaries or restrictions can play out. Doing tasks may require extra patience and caution.

As this is finishing, Jupiter will be going into an exact square with Uranus from January 14th to the 19th. This energy can be freedom seeking, rebellious, scattered, idealistic, or even risk taking. It could be good for exploring, learning, education, or expansiveness around things that are new to us, unconventional, technological, scientific, progressive, or metaphysical.

Mars then makes its exact conjunction with Uranus from the 19th to the 21st while it is finishing its square Jupiter. It can really crank up the energies mentioned above and this energy can also be impulsive, erratic, experimental, disruptive, surprising, irritable, and quick tempered.

From the 21st until the 24th, Mars will then be in exact square with Jupiter. We may feel like doing things in a big way but it’s important to be cautious around what we do because we can more easily apply ourselves in a way that is overextending, overestimating, or overlooking of important things. Conflicts around beliefs, opinions, judgements, and principles can play out.

During the later part of this period, the Sun will be in a conjunction with Saturn from the 23rd to 24th. This can have a serious tone, and perhaps the need to be realistic, cautious, orderly, disciplined, committed, or responsible, may come up. Following this, the Sun will be making aspects to Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars in the last week of January and into the first few days of February which can trigger some of the energies mentioned earlier in this section.

The combination of all of these planets in close proximity to aspects with each other throughout January can be good for applying ourselves in new ways that are congruent with changes that are happening personally or collectively. However, it can also be a time of anger, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness towards obstacles, restrictions, opinions, beliefs, authority figures, as well as other recent or upcoming developments, circumstances, or changes.

Venus Square Chiron &  Trine Uranus, Mercury Entering pre-Retrograde Shadow

Venus in Capricorn is in a square with Chiron in Aries at the time of this New Moon and in the day leading up to it.  This can bring up wounds, blockages, negative patterns, or can reflect themes around healing, holistic perception, or perhaps solutions when it comes to love, our social life, friends, pleasures, values, or monetary issues.

Venus is also in a trine with Uranus in Taurus which is strongest in the day and half following this New Moon. It can bring a new, stimulating, unusual, exciting, inspiring, liberating, unexpected, or unique energy around our relations with others.  This can also reflect surprises, positive changes, or freeing type of developments around financial matters. In some cases it can be good for exploring new ways of making money that can be innovative, online, metaphysical, or technologically oriented.

On January 15th, Mercury in Aquarius will be entering the shadow period of its retrograde that will be beginning on January 30th/31st and last until February 20th/21st. It can increasingly start to feel like it’s retrograde during these weeks leading up to it as delays, technological/mechanical problems, mistakes, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or other complications can be more probable than in the previous six weeks.

Certain developments, interactions, connections, or issues that occur at this time can be connected to how this retrograde will affect us in February through its adjusting and perceptive changing qualities. There can be something we are not seeing clearly that needs to unfold throughout the upcoming retrograde and post-retrograde process. I will be writing a separate article on this, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What changes do you need to make when it comes to your ambitions, career, structures, or business matters? What can you do to make your profession more congruent with a changing world? What are you fighting for and what can you do to be more calculated, effective, and persuasive? What kind of strategies can you employ to help you achieve your goals? Do you need to be more innovative when it comes to making money? What area of your life is calling for some sort of purging, cleansing, empowerment, and/or transformation?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 5:00am Universal Time on January 13th.
