We celebrate the solstice point as well as the New Moon in Capricorn today. How wonderful that the New Moon and the Solstice point occurred in the same orb of time. This seemed to drag me deeply into the dream world and I was unable to meet the deadline of getting this newsletter to you, my devoted readers. I appreciate your understanding and patience as I found myself wrapped in a blanket of meditation.
The New Moon in Capricorn brings us stability to overcome fears and move past any self-doubt. The Saturn rulership over the Sea-goat bides us to hunker down and work hard. Do your best to create a cohesive plan and move steadily in a determined direction, rather than flinging yourself haphazardly at desires and goals. The secret to your success is in the maintenance of a connection between the emotional body and the spiritual realm. This helps in your quest to reach for the heavens.
The stilling effect of Capricorn along with the dwindling winter light in the northern hemisphere is absolutely perfect for deep meditation. If you are thinking of beginning a practice, get in touch with me for coaching and a private session. If your daily reflection time seems to have gotten away from you, try waking early in the morning before sunrise and sitting quietly. The dark stillness is the perfect way to easily dip into the quiet contemplation of healing silence.
The Solstice point at zero degrees Capricorn is the perfect time to reboot and reset your dreams and aspirations. It seems I needed an extra day to soak in this before I could sit at he keyboard and crank this astrological report out! It is no surprise to me as I contemplate all of this that another hang up has been Uranus—the ruler of my ascendant—floating in station awaiting his whacky forward motion. Uranus has been retrograde since the Summer Solstice earlier this year and for all creative types this has been a kybosh on getting the ideas up and out of the psyche and into the material realm.
Hang on to your hats and take a moment to look at the shifts happening on December 22 when the “supervisor of strange” Uranus clears his station and turns to what he calls forward motion. These last few days may have felt like wading through peanut butter in your brain. In order to move through this we must exercise strong persistent perseverance. Visualize a clear goal and steadily continue to move toward it.
December 23 somber Saturn steps into Sagittarius compelling us to take a long, hard look at our belief systems and what really needs to shift for the greater as a society. Be aware to not dump your judgment on others without taking extra time to look the implications on your own behavior. Wrap your mind around the fact that there may not be a solution to challenges but instead an adapting point. As the ringed-one retrogrades next year from June 14 to September 17, 2015 he will revisit the tail end of the Scorpio points he just departed one more time. This brings a possibility that we need to clean up a few more things before he glides forward once again into the open-minded sign of the Archer. When he does, he stays until December 21, 2017.
January 3, Venus floats into Aquarius inspiring an ease and independence in our relationships. Some may find their partners acting aloof. Don’t let it knock you off balance. Use this time to take the love you have and spread it around universally.
Mercury joins the Goddess of love in Aquarius the very next day on January 4. Heightened awareness and multidimensional vision is available helping us to see a greater amount of possibilities then we have been able to over the past months. This is sure to create unusual new communications in the media and unexpected happenings in the news. This period is prolonged due to Mercury’s first retrograde of 2015 when causing him to stay in the Water-bearer’s sign through March 12. I am looking forward to seeing what this does for all of us!
January 4 the Moon is full in sensitive Cancer. This creates cautious, lovable and caring feelings. Meanwhile our egos ruled by the Sun—who is in the opposite sign of rational Capricorn—urge us to seek out financial security. Luna is conjunct personal planets Mercury and Venus causing some crazy shopping behavior and communications. A lose square from Pluto in pragmatic Capricorn adds exceptional alchemy to the terrestrial stew. It is always a good idea to use Pluto’s presence as a reminder to move ahead as he never supports stagnation or hesitancy. Intense mood swings are possible, so be forewarned. Let’s place a portion of our attention to the political arena as there is likely to be an interesting display as the year comes to a close.
Mars swims into the sign of the two fishes January 12. While visiting the watery home of Pisces we are inspired to lay down our weapons and find ourselves a much more sensitive. The upside is that any competitions slow down as edges are noticeably softened. This transit lasts until February 19, and is an excellent period for finding ourselves on gallant ground as we disarm potential bombs and quite contrarily initiate spiritual and artistic activities.
The Sun enters Aquarius January 20 for his annual visit. The water bearer teachers us detachment and the best way I know of to work with the timeless state of meditation. Take care in your times of witnessing to not alienate those you love. Hold your tongue and think things through a little longer before blurting. This helps to keep the surface smooth and everyone in harmony.
I wish you a New Year filled with Love, Laughter, Happiness, Great Health and Abundance! I am here to help guide you with stellar expertise! Contact me for your appointment today.

Leo July 22/23 to August 23/24
Take some extra down-time so you are able to tune into your dreams and quiet inward journeys. If you have been trying to choose between various offers go for the smaller gatherings rather than the larger and stick with local travel instead of foreign. There is no need to stir things up right now. The extra space in-between thoughts and soothes you into quiet. This helps you to handle unexpected tremors at work and in your social circles.

Virgo August 23/24 to September 23/24
Daily routines and habits are changing. Life is like this. We always move forward and never in reverse. Though change is not your favorite state to be in, you must find a way to embrace it. Perhaps now is not the best time to stick with status quo or old pragmatic patterns. Relax and think things out with regards to your finances. This is an opportunity to witness your reactive state and choose to be gentler on yourself and others.
The year ahead is a parade of similar types and situations. Smoothly negotiate this by catching and identifying similarities early on. This helps to avoid recurrences and unnecessary stressors. It is also an opportunity to practice kindness.
Libra September 23/24 to October 23/24
Be the one to reach out to the people you miss. Let them know you are thinking of them and how important they are in your life. Your new relationship is filled with exotic nuances never before experienced. Enjoy it. New friends and locations are on the horizon. Get everything in order and be prepared to journey off into exciting new territories. Revisit social situations you have been avoiding with a fresh new perspective.

Scorpio October 23/24 to November 22/23
Trust your intuition and head spontaneously into all projects. The relationships that feel like home are indeed the right ones so go ahead and make a long-term commitment. There is no problem with extending a trial period if needed. Either way you win. Moving or remodeling is in the forefront as a way to launch this New Year. Once this project is underway you can indeed relax back into the creative venture that had been pushed to the back burner.
The year ahead continues to be about work and perseverance. This is a wave worth riding as long as you set some time aside for yourself. You have the ability to be successful in all of your endeavors.
Sagittarius November 22/23 to December 21/22
Happiness comes from meeting an intellectual challenge. It has been quite some time since you have felt enough support and space to pursue this. Your living situation has changed for the better and though you may feel a bit cramped, you find that adapting and facing the challenges offers opportunity to delegate responsibility and in turn provides you with more space and time. Use this to rise above hang-ups and see the gifts before you.
The year ahead beckons you to discover and experience things in a way you never have before. Try a new look to spice things up.
Capricorn December 21/22 to January 20/21
Have you been craving a big change? This is the perfect time to do a one-eighty or better yet go off in a completely unusual new direction. Have you been dreaming about starting your own business or completely changing careers? All indicators show you are bubbling with triumph. Before heading out on too many interviews, really decide what it is you want. Design it clearly in your mind. This helps to weed out unnecessary routes and places you on the fast track to success.
The year ahead is filled with innovative solutions and creative projects. You are on top of your game and able to see solutions clearly. Be grateful.
Aquarius January 20/21 to February 18/19
A major new beginning is occurring so stand ready to receive. It is fine to take a little extra time before plunging head first as long as you keep your mind clear that this is inevitably happening. Invest by exploring new social offerings as well as different financial sectors. All of these prove to pay back immensely when you make a full commitment. There is no need to do so right away. Wait until you are completely confident.
The year ahead helps you realize that when you share deeply from the core of your being, you are better than when you are isolated and alone. Go out and connect with new people and the ones you love.
Pisces February 18/19 to March 19/20
You are an imaginative being. For some reason you let the mundane needs of life get in the way and pull you off this point. Find your tools and get back to the expression you love. This helps you to feel whole and happy once again. All creative expressions including children and lovers play in the forefront. Take plenty of time to give attention to all of them. It is as if you are warming up and awakening from a long dormant time. Enjoy each and every opportunity and document them well.
The year ahead shows you the importance of happiness in your work. Let yourself be led to unusual assignments involving foreign languages and hidden information. The discovery of solutions fills you with joy.
