“Hermits have no peer pressure” S.Wright
On the 29th of December there will be a New Moon at 7°59’ in the sign of Capricorn.
Capricorn is a Cardinal, Earth sign, so persons with planets or angles of the natal chart at 6-9° of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra will be particularly affected by this lunation.
New Moons are notoriously the best moment to set fresh intentions for the month ahead and with Capricorn involved, this will be done in a very serious, responsible fashion.
In traditional astrology Capricorn rules the 10th house so this New Moon falls on the 10th-4th [...]
Generosity, responsibility and a bit of quirkiness over the Christmas period….
On the 25-26th December the planet Jupiter meets up with two of the “big boys” (more for importance than for size).
The first to open the dances will be a trine from Saturn in Sagittarius to Uranus retrograde (and almost stationary) in Aries at 20°33’. Inviting us to combine the traditional with the unconventional (eccentric party hats anyone?). This aspect might also prompt us to make choices and expectations more responsibly whilst planning our own individual form of “rebellion”, the sextile [...]

“The Storyteller’s Moon”
On the 14th there will be a Full Moon at 22°26’ Gemini, as we all know, full moons are when matters that have been simmering under the surface emerge to be dealt with. This lunation occurs on the 3rd-9th house axis (Gemini-Sagittarius) in traditional astrology; how I think vs how they think, short trips vs long journeys, reason vs intuition etc. Both signs are concerned with gathering and spreading knowledge as well as education and travel.
It will most affect those with planets or angles in Gemini and Sagittarius between 20-24°.
So this Full Moon [...]
……organized strategies or festive holiday havoc?
So unlike me, I’ve decided to write very much earlier about the next Mercury retrograde which will begin at 15°03’ Capricorn on 18th December 2016 and end on the 7th of January 2017 at 25°54’ Sagittarius.
The reason for me writing so early? I’ve just realized that the retrograde will take up all the oncoming holiday period, including the New Year (and the sales period!) and I thought that it would be better if we all knew about the retrograde in advance so as to be ready (forewarned is forearmed so they say), if possible, for[...]
