Planetary Trends – December 25th – December 30th, 2015

Posted on Updated on

Urania’s Mirror, 1825

The winter solstice brought with it the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn on December 21st; we’re now being guided towards the first Christmas Full Moon in 38 years. The Cancer Full Moon at 3 degrees greets us at 6:12 AM EST, bringing with it the nurturing and family-centered energy Cancer’s are known for and what better time to explore this kind of vibe than on Christmas? The Full Moon’s trine to Neptune in Pisces creates a dreamy aspect, the urge to escape the physical world and perhaps a softening of our emotional responses. Nostalgia and dreams pertaining to the maternal nurturing we received as children, and possibly as adults, may color our emotional make-up. The Cardinal signs (Cancer, Aries, Libra, Capricorn) will more than likely feel this energy a bit more intensely than others.

The Moon’s location in the solar 4th house conjunct the IC does bring about a concentrated emotional focus on family and the mother/father axis (4th/1oth houses) The 4th house is the physical home as well as childhood experiences. The holiday season always has us reminiscing about the past.

Xmas Full MoonVenus’ sextile to both Mercury and Jupiter sweetens this Full Moon further. Extravagance (Venus/Jupiter) and pleasant interchanges (Venus/Mercury) are perfect for gatherings and being with those we love. The inner tension we may have been feeling these past few weeks seems to be easing up a bit. There may be a lot of temptation to indulge and over do it today. You only live once, so why not?

Mercury Trines Jupiter at 3:18 PM EST. Expansion, over-flowing of ideas and sharing thoughts with those who have similar interests could be the focus. Mercury/Jupiter aspects are known for their tall tales and curiosity; a wonderful aspect for socializing

Uranus stations direct at 10:52 PM EST This will surely have us releasing a sigh of relief, especially those with a large number of planets in Cardinal signs. While Uranus can bring about freedom, excitement and change, it can also usher in extreme chaos that threatens to shake up our sense of security. Uranus’ square to Pluto in Capricorn certainly wasn’t helping matters. The turbulent roller coaster ride we’ve been on may be finally settling down a bit; don’t get too comfortable, though. Uranus will still be rattling our cages, but we’ll be better equipped to handle it.

Healing Stones for this Full Moon: These are perfect stones for love and healing. The holidays in particular can often trigger old wounds.

  • Rose Quartz
  • Pink Moonstone
  • Moonstone
  • Pink Tourmaline
  • Clear Quartz

Mercury Squares Mars on December 29th 9:52 AM. Verbal confrontations and communication battles could have us blowing our stack. Anyone who comes for us or poses a threat may walk away with more than their feelings hurt. Keep a cool head (and mouth)

Venus enters adventurous Sagittarius on December 30th at 2:16 AM EST. The constant need to explore and have freedom may have us struggling to hang in there for the long haul. Sagittarius tends to view love and relationships in a very broad-minded kind of way and this can create problems for those who may be looking for a more concrete expressions of love (I’ll be doing a post on Venus in Sagittarius)

Happy Holidays!

    Thanks so much Nicoleh for getting this out to us on Christmas Day! Good work. I actually read it in bed on Christmas morning and wanted to comment but had to sign in to WordPress and hadn’t got my password (very long and complicated) close to hand so only getting to reply now. So we can expect family holiday rows tomorrow 29th? It certainly is the time of year for it. Weather has been very stormy and wet here in Ireland so kids haven’t got out to play on their new Santa bikes and go-karts. Everyone cooped up for too long together. It is bound to blow a few fuses around the place. Also I can predict sale shoppers becoming quite volatile as they fight for the best bargains and queue for hours at cash-desks as Mercury squares on Mars.

    We certainly will be craving our freedom and personal space by the 30th. Will reblog this.

    xx VIvien

      Thank you for the response, Vivien! WordPress has been giving me some issues as well. Energetically I feel some of the tension we’ve been experiencing lifting a bit now that Uranus has stationed direct. I know quite a few people who have mentioned feeling blockages and having difficulties in moving forward. I hope the New Year has been good to you so far!

        Yes, feel ready for action this year and a lot of hard work too. I like your posts as they give me a bit of a heads-up about what way I may be feeling from week to week. I felt terribly blocked before the end of the year. I could barely write a word and felt dried up in my head. Thankfully I have moved past that now and feeling more in control. Think your writing complements mine so am happy to share your blogs. Will reblog more over the year. Here’s to a great year, even though the world is going through some tough stuff. We must keep moving forward. x

        I understand completely when you mentioned blockages. I’ve been dealing with them creatively as well as energy-wise. Learning to pull back, focus, and recharge have done wonders. Thank you for the support and reblogs. I will be reblogging some of your posts to my Oracle/Astrology blog I’m creating!

        Hi Nicole,

        Yes, thankfully that blockage period is behind me for the moment and with the new year underway am feeling more recharged which has brought a stronger focus.
