Astrological Events for December

December begins with Venus moving into Sagittarius as the moon is growing to its full phase.

The important events astrological of December are:

  • Jupiter trine Neptune from Scorpio to Pisces
  • The super full moon on the 3rd  Square Neptune

  • Saturn or Mercury as the  void planet in Sag until  the 19th

  • The New Years eve and start of 2018 with the Moon in Gemini conjunct the fixed star Polaris, Venus shining brightly with Facies, the star of energetic impulses, Uranus stationed creating excitement and the Sun with Lilith conjunct the node of Jupiter intensifying primal desires.

The first days of December intensify towards the full moon on the 3rd which is the only super moon of the year, when the moon is closest to the earth at full phase and will appear larger than normal. This full moon carries with it Mercury stationed to retrograde who is together with Saturn at the Galactic center. This point will be revisited with the new moon on the 18th.

This full moon is the only super moon of the year, when the moon is closest to the earth at full phase and will appear larger than normal. This full moon carries with it Mercury stationed to retrograde who is together with Saturn at the Galactic center. This point will be revisited with the new moon on the 18th.

The full moon between Sagittarius and Gemini is a time of revisiting your thoughts and beliefs. This is a great weekend to connect with others that are interested in exploring ideas with gusto and willingness to develop concepts that can be put into action for the betterment of local communities or beyond. It is also a great weekend to get away on a spiritual retreat as Neptune is part of the mix shining its vibe with a desire to merge with the infinite. Music and parties are certainly going to be plenty, with the Sagittarian Centaur in full swing of imbibing in earthly pleasures. In fact this is strong throughout the month. This full moon has been called the Full Cold Moon, Full long nights moon, Oak Moon, and the moon before Yule.

Mercury retrograde the day of the full moon can bring pause to travel plans.  Mercury conjunct Saturn on the 4th 5th and 6th can have a serious time in deciding  what to do, where to go, or what to buy. For those in the University setting it is a tough cram time. When exams are in the mix, skipping the study or required effort is a sure bet for unhappy marks.  As for other results from exams, health, and such, the first week in December can result is funny numbers, with Neptune strong and Mercury retrograde test results are nearly guaranteed to be requested again. As for signing up for health insurance or other binding legal papers Mercury Saturn suggest to think it through very carefully before you sign the dotted line and hand over your hard earned cash.

Mercury, Saturn, Venus and Uranus will be the void planets this month (with a day and a half given to Mars). Mercury at the start of the month ends the day with the mind working overtime seeking knowledge and truth, Saturn from the 6th to the 19th leaves us second guessing if we are making the right choices, and from the 20th to the 25th Venus takes center stage for the void position sending us to sleep with happy thoughts, and from the 25th to the New Year Uranus takes over and our true selves emerge to let loose.

Jupiter will trine Neptune for the first time since July of 2013, due to the nature of the transits the trine was completed only once that year, Dec 2017 is the first of 3 Jupiter Neptune trines, with the second happening in May of 2018 and the third in August 2018. The December trine will give us a hint of how to access the nature of Jupiter in Scorpio with Neptune in Pisces. This is an extremely potent time to develop your intuitive skills and further your path along spiritual development. Caution is advised when listening to Gurus who might not be true teachers but more interested in elevating their status.

The Sagittarius new moon at 26 degrees 31 minutes is conjunct the Galactic Center.  According to Philip Sedgewick  “The Galactic Center is  an intense compact radio source and a supermassive black hole at the center  the Milky Way which our sun revolves around. It-* opens up the subconscious mind. This opening asks us to release and forget emotional trauma. Of course, this also means relinquishing your greatest emotional grievances. Perhaps this contributes largely to the popular metaphysical model of cellular reprogramming. Second, IFR blasts open the root chakra in the energy system. This chakra releases the old, regenerates our energy, and lifts us off our duffs with renewed inspiration and a sense of real progress.”  (

This is an incredible blessing to forward us to catapult our spiritual progress. Setting your intentions for the Sagittarius new moon will be valuable when you are connecting with the realm of what Sagittarius is all about.

Create affirmations that set a positive vibration for what is important for you.

Consider taking classes or courses in subjects that are of interest.

Reexamine your thoughts and beliefs, let go of prejudice and judgment

Expand your boundaries beyond your comfort zone.

Take a foreign language class or if that seems too formidable check our exotic cuisine.

Plan travels, the more wild and adventurous the better.

Take a journey of the mind, or better yet travel to the amazon with a guide for shamanic healing.

The new moon is trine Uranus and Pallas Athene in Aires giving a send off of encouragement to be true to ones core values. Granted the Sag new moon is a few degrees from Saturn who is at the very last moments of being in Sag, and square Chiron, which brings an emphasis of being serious about having what you want, a plethora of aha moments that bring to the surface the cracks in your life where you feel you have been unfaithful to the truth of your being.

The winter solstice (or summer down under) is the day that the Sun and Saturn form a new cycle. This is the first time in 28 years that the yearly sun Saturn conjunction is in Capricorn and we will have two other conjunctions in January of 2018 and 2019. In essence three chances to set our intentions for accomplishments and long term goals, along with mastering discipline that it will require to do so. Do you want to climb Mount Everest? The time is now to create the routine of exercise that will support you in that goal. How about that home you want? Or a trip around the world? Or the family you want to start? This solstice chart with the sun conjunct Saturn opens the door to help us obtain what we need to have what we want. Venus in the solstice chart is at the same degree that the Sagittarius new moon occupied; this new phase of sun Saturn reflects back to help with the intentions set on the new moon. The moon will be in Aquarius on the day of the solstice, perfect for gathering of friends and celebration of the Yule and Saturnalia. Saturn having moved into Capricorn on the day of the solstice and will spend the next 2 ½ years in the sign tht it rules allows for Saturn to proceed without obastacles. How this will impact you is if you are willing to plan, put forth the effort, and discipline your time to focus on your highest intentions the universe will help you along the way.

Mercury moves direct on Friday the 22nd and last minute shopping for presents shower in rapid motion. Mail seems to come all at once and last minute arraignments for the holidays are confirmed. The moon will move through Aquarius to Gemini from Friday the 22nd to New Years Eve, a time when many people will be on vacation. Saturday and Sunday the 23rd and 24th  and the 25th  moon will float through Pisces; a time that will remind us we are all one and emphasize peace on earth and love to all. Venus shifts into Capricorn on the 25th, respect of others values will save the day at Christmas dinner time with family members that don’t always see eye to eye. Tuesday and Wednesday the moon in fiery Aries can be super busy cramming in trips and events that you love to do.  Thursday and Friday the moon in Taurus life slows down to relax and enjoy, while Saturday and Sunday the 31st with the moon in Gemini is another surge of activity and connecting with friends and fun.

The New Years eve and start of 2018 is with the Moon in Gemini conjunct the fixed star Polaris (Alpha Ursae Minoris in the constellation of Ursa Minor, the Little Bear). Polaris is the celestial North Pole, or the point in space where the earth’s axis intersects the Celestial Sphere. Polaris may be perceived as a focal point of condensed energy connecting our Earth to the  greater cosmos. This is a beautiful symbol from which to contemplate our place in the vastness of the universe, and how our light, if only for a brief moment of time we are on the planet, can shine its brightest.


December Astrology 2016

Capricorn Solstice




The year is rushing to the end and at a collective consciousness level preparing for 2017. The cycle of the Sagittarius new moon from November 29th is unfolding throughout the month until the Capricorn new moon on the 29th. There is a strong live have fun atmosphere as well as the desire to peek into the possibilities of what the future might bring.

The theme of the month is friendship and acceptance (not necessarily agreements) of people’s opinions and personal beliefs. There is an amazing amount of grace that can be channeled this month. The universe is setting up the energy for 2017 in the last weeks of 2016.


  • In late October (10/23) Jupiter was connected to Neptune, the message of connecting with our spirituality.
  • November 24th Jupiter square Pluto, inspiring to go for it in life.
  • December 24th Saturn trine Uranus, help to manifest the change you want.
  • December 26th Jupiter Opposite Uranus Wild enthusiasm for freedom and independence.

All of these combinations will be playing out in 2017, therefore your meditations, thoughts, and ideas that you are contemplating in December will be extremely important. This is definitely a time to heed the old saying, “be careful what you wish for”. If you consciously set your intentions for what you want to have unfold in 2017 there is great support from the universe to guide you in helping you make it happen.

On the second of December Mercury moves into Capricorn where it will spend the next 6 weeks due to the retrograde that begins of the 19th.  Might want to make sure you keep your receipts for your xmas gifts since the retrograde goes through the holiday week. Lots of returns probable.

venus aquarius

Venus moves into friend loving Aquarius on the 7th in the sign that Mars has been hanging out it; this brings joy in gathering with friends new and old. The full moon on the 13th is a beautiful harmonious inspiration that is teaching us to be with what is, and in doing so we are able to flow into a direction towards more happiness and success. This does go back to the new moon vibe of developing your spiritual side and releasing judgment. Once accomplished the resistance in life disappears and miracles can show up.

The full moon of Gemini is another precursor of the wave of 2017 with 5 planets in harmonious connections with each other in air and fire signs.  This is quite unusual and when you allow your mind to imagine and connect with your hearts passion the inspiration and motivation you need to create your destiny is supported by invisible help from universal source.

The day that Mercury shifts retrograde, (19th)  Mars moves into Pisces where it reflects how easy it can be to scatter ones energy, make promises to meet up with friends, help out those in need and then find oneself over committed and exhausted. Keeping promises to a minimum and extra time allowed to get places alleviates the stress. Feed Mars in Pisces with uplifting music, meditation, and yoga. Mercury stops just short of Pluto before it turns away, carrying with it the desire to think deeply about the important issues of life.

The winter solstice on the 21st heralds the return of the sun, the longest night of the year is over and the light begins to grow once again. (Of course it’s flipped for down unders.)

Capricorn New Moon

The last week of December is perhaps the most significant as the planetary harmony is given a huge lightning bolt boost with Saturn, Uranus and Jupiter in agreement supporting change in a way that is real and authentic. In addition the New moon in Capricorn on the 29th has an extra jolt of power to create as that is the same day that Uranus, the planet of sudden change is at its strongest position of the year.

Capricorn New Moon and Solstice

The new moon in Capricorn is especially significant this year as it is on the day of the solstice. The solstice energy is connected to a symbol of universal knowledge. A deep desire to know more and to explore a set of principles and truth to live by will be present. The shadow side of this is that individuals can use their faith as a justification to harm others. Yet the purpose is for us to find our inner faith and truth and live by our highest principles.


Each new moon brings an opportunity to focus our intention to manifest that which we want to create in our life. When we are in the Capricorn cycle the universe is bringing messages for us to embody the gifts and qualities that are inherent in the sign of Capricorn, working towards something that is meaningful and patience towards the steps needed to achieve the task.


This new moon in Capricorn is our opportunity to master fear and procrastination. It is the time to be conscious of your goals with purpose and to look towards your future while working productively in the present.


During the Capricorn cycle we are given the opportunity to eliminate any shame or guilt from past actions or regrets of not doing something. It is the month to master time and learn how to use time wisely.



What the planets are asking:

1.) Master the principles of time management.

2.) Respect all living creatures and the planet.

3.) Life your life as what you want to be known for.

4.) Conduct yourself in such a way that no one can harm your reputation.

5.) Set and keep boundaries with kindness yet being firm.

6.) Acknowledge your responsibilities and embrace them as a choice.

7.) Eliminate resentment and guilt.

8.) Cultivate patience, know that the day by day work you do are steps on a path, and that path leads you to a destination that you want.

9.) When obstacles or difficulties happen know that it is how you respond to them that makes the difference in inner peace.


Listen to your inner voice for suggestions on how to master these Capricorn principles.



Each new moon in the different signs have special significance to bring forward the gifts of that sign. Every year there is a new element of the new moons as the other planets are in different positions, helping to surge the energy for growth
