Enthusiastically adding to this New Moon we find Mars in Virgo trining Venus, who finds herself in sturdy Capricorn. The warrior is also in sextile to Mercury in the subterranean realm of Scorpio. Lots of relationships are bound to take the step toward long-term commitment and many babies are surely about to be made! Mind your health and make good choices if this is not at all what you are looking for.
December 4, Mercury swoops into Sagittarius for a poetic romp with the centaur. Lofty thoughts and ideas abound so be sure and capture them. These come in handy as the year clicks forward to 2014. Now is not the time to try to set anything in motion, so use this stretch as a way to gather ideas and inspirations for your resolute passage forward.
Mars flies into Libra December 7, giving him much needed freedom of expression. He is ready to drive you to what you really want. Are you ready to accept it? With this retrograde pattern holing him here for an unusual length of time until July 25, 2014, you have the opportunity to go back and forth over this a couple times. May you get the lessons the first time and move forward. If not, you are sure to have things literally blow up in your face! The cooling breeze of Libra is helpful but the stubborn need to find harmony and balance can actually create more difficulty. Do your best to stay clear and reach out to others for help. I am here to give you readings for the New Year, book your appointment now!
I don’t often site trines in the planetary transits, but the meeting of gargantuan Jupiter in sensitive Cancer and often standoffish Saturn in meditative Scorpio is noteworthy due to the penetrating water signs involved. This signals the “yes” day for making that bold career move, launching the new project and solidifying a long-range plan. You must be completely emotionally invested, so I suggest finding out where this occurs in your chart in a transit reading with me.
Full Moon in Gemini occurs at 4:28:03 a.m. EST December 17, here in my neck of the woods. A glorious trine with dreamy Neptune in Pisces signals big dreams for the final weeks of the year. The influence of the Twins on Luna, persuade her to two distinctly viable choices, a duality in feelings. Careful with altruisms and ultimatums as the holidays possess stigmas that cannot handle certain emotional loads. Ease up! Choose long conversations and meaningful connections over anything else. This pays off big-time.
Are you ready to get your ideas in motion? If the previous transits did not prove to get these kick-started, then surely when Uranus moves direct December 17, you begin to find it easier to get all of your points across and out in the collective mind. Reach out to groups and friends for support and motivation. The energy you seek is right at your fingertips, literally, use the internet!
The Sun moves into Capricorn December 21. Each year when the Sun enters Capricorn in the Tropical time-measurement, this signals the turn of season as winter solstice for the northern hemisphere, and summer solstice in the southern hemisphere. The Sea-goat implores you to hunker down and get busy. Set goals, clarify your visions. The worst things you can do are to want and crave without a clue that you receive that which you put out. Therefore, rather than asking when will I receive, ask what can I focus on in order to attract. Rather than beg for love, give to others selflessly. This is Karma; this is the law of attraction. You must give in order to receive.
Venus begins a short retrograde period December 21 in the sign of Capricorn, and stays through January 31. This is never a good time to begin a new relationship. Those already in existence feel bumps are up for reevaluation. Hang tight and do as much to contribute to the working parts of the relationship as possible. Stay open to reconnect with old lovers and friends. Venus retrograde is notorious for coughing up unexpected meetings especially in this sign as the Sea-goat demands you reevaluate the reason you moved on. This is great for closure as well as saving a few precious pearls you may have tossed away in haste.
Mercury skids into Capricorn December 24 just in time for you to explain yourself to your family and friends. Take your time and don’t plan to dump everything out on the table during your holiday dinner. But rather keep composed and give little flashes of insight. Choose to focus on the stability of situations and gently steer the conversations away from any judgment or weakness. You will thank me later.
The last few days of 2013 are not without quirks. Verbose Mercury needs to be kept in check lest you blurt out information you did not mean to give to the present company you are keeping. Stressful squares to Uranus make this even more of a challenge as the ancient one wants you to spit it out. Chew slowly and smile a lot. This keeps you from having to speak so much! Just before New Year’s Eve, Mars and Pluto tango in a tight square. Watch out for intense reactions and really be careful on the road for the holiday!
Remember, all of this is sparked by a New Moon in Sagittarius. Keep your heart full of love and your mind on transcendent beliefs. Engage your spirit of adventure and welcome 2014 with the heart of an explorer!
I thank you all for being devoted readers and look forward to serving you in the years to come. May this New Year be filled with Love, Peace and Understanding! Happy New Year! Love Ambika Devi, your Chica de las Estrellas.
Remember to keep looking up, the stars are here to guide you and I am great at reading the map!
I invite you to read on for my predictions for the 12 signs.
This stressful patch is now coming to an end. Give thanks and be grateful so you can set a positive tone for the coming New Year. A new offer on the career front comes through. This signals the need to let go of family drama in order to allow yourself to visualize exactly where you are meant to be. There is no need to rush into the next few months or make big decisions. Instead, let this all begin to gently unfold and show you the path that destiny is ready to unveil at your feet. This gives you much needed time to explore the necessary moves needed for the months ahead.
Taurus April 20/21 to May 21/22
Your garden of life has begged for a good weeding and clearing out. The stifling energy of vacuous people and situations must be sifted and revised. Maneuvers and shifts on the work front continue to dominate your thoughts. There really is no way to prepare for all of this as it is already happening so, stay loose and relaxed. Let your affirmative intention be “I go with the flow of life.” By practicing this you are able to negotiate the financial bumps in the road. Know they are short-lived and bright choices are ahead.
Gemini May 21/22 to June 21/22
This has indeed been a year of ups and downs, gains and losses. Reach out to your mentors, friends and family for guidance and support. They are able to assist in helping you to navigate your next move and to map out your future. Hold off on signing any major contracts or making lifelong commitments. Use your free time to clear through your belongings and giveaway anything you are not using. This provides a much needed lightening up. Enjoy all of your current relationships and let each and every one of them know how much you value them.
Cancer June 22/23 to July 22/23
Cupid’s arrow is aimed directly at your heart. Romance awaits you through the holidays. It is of course your choice as to whether you wish to partake in this. Remain extra diligent with your health and continue to develop new and improved ways to care for the gift of your physical manifestation. Just the same as our beloved planet benefits from sustainable living so does the body. Therefore realize that everything you do affects the future of your health. You are building the new blocks for the foundation of your future self. Take time for extra rest and avoid the desire to burn the candle at both ends. No matter what anyone tries to tell you, the only thing you can truly follow is that which creates your bliss.
Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
You are in an overly self-indulgent mood. Curb this appetite and redistribute some of it to those around you in need. When you feel pulled by opposing ideas, trust your heart, it steers you in the right direction every time. Stay in the true meaning of the holidays rather than falling victim to hype. You don’t have to do a complete 180 at work but instead refocus on your current projects. Turn to face this last year with deep gratitude. Your instincts are good and help you stay balanced in the face of temptation. Change is inevitable, though it is not up to you to initiate it.
Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
Home is truly where your heart is and proves to be a great source for happiness. Be kind when you give your opinion and see the truth in the words of others as they are so much more sensitive than you realize. Be gentle and careful not to cut them down in one fell swoop. New ideas begin to fly into your mind at the beginning of the month and then slow down drastically toward the end. Do not fret. Now that you know, ride the waves accordingly. When you feel stuck, spend time acknowledging your better attributes. You deserve to be happy, so be sure to be kind to yourself.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
Whatever you do, please do not underestimate circumstances that remotely repeat the past. You are being lured into revisiting and recapping earlier patterns, so expect the unexpected. Take one step at a time. This is always the only way to move forward. The holidays have a set of bumps and obstacles for you, so be extra patient as you encounter them. Do your best to be resilient so as to avoid bruises and permanent damage. Mind your mouth and your manners. Set the intention to begin this New Year on a positive note.
Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
Stay involved in your spiritual practice though the New Year. Find the balance between this and your new avenue of financial flow. Indeed you must reach outside your cushy nest to begin the exploration of new opportunities and methods. A new phase is unfolding and things do not appear as they once did. Right around the holidays you experience the sweetness you have craved for over a decade. Bite in slowly and savor the delicious flavors that you have craved for so long! No need to think about what will happen or where this all leads. Just go with it and enjoy yourself for goodness sake! You are so deserving of all you receive and it is indeed the start of many new and exciting relationships.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
Take a little time to focus on your personal future. You have been placing so much energy in giving to others that Joan of Arc is ready to turn her armor over to you! Pull out your magic wand and wave it in the air. Be sure to accompany this action with a well thought out intention of what you really want. Then let go, and prepare to receive. Some of why you have seemingly been blocked as far as gathering desires on a personal level is due to martyrdom. Let go and trust that you are well deserving. Stay on guard for people playing mind games and lay the law down when it comes to how far you can really extend your funds as a philanthropist. I encourage you to just say no and set a new standard for the coming year.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
You must find the extra energy needed to push through and ride the currents of the cosmic forces at work. Great things are just ahead should you find the resources needed to trust and move into this exciting new phase. I know better than anyone that you do not like this sort of change but trust me, it is for the better. Once your goals are in sight, you must make the conscious choice to go after them. If you do see that situations are potentially toxic, then I encourage you to walk away. Stay compassionate with yourself and others. This keeps you from isolating at a time when you very much need to connect and trust others. This all takes an extra amount of work so rest up and prepare yourself for the big changes that are inevitable.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
The community needs you to reach out and help as you are the one with great vision and resources. Tap into all of your powers and stay steady when you are met with resistance. You are welcome to go outside the box and push limits. I know this is music to your ears so dance the wild ballet of creation and wow the onlookers. As the year comes to a close your mind is wired for sound decisions and great presentations. I recommend taking your trip or travel after the turn of the year so you are able to realize this full potential power. Why blow it? Now is the time to make things happen!
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
Just say no if the project you are being offered feels all wrong. I support you in avoiding this disaster. Your instincts are on point and later, when you feel the excitement rise, invest all of your time and resources even if this feels a little crazy at work. Just when it seems as if you may have overdone it, as if by magic you seem to be cruising comfortably back on track. The secret key you hold is your amazing imagination. This comes through to help you sail comfortably into the New Year and your very much needed, next phase.
