The birth of this site has been an amazing journey, and what many of you may not know is that it all began with a concussion in 2013. While I've healed miraculously well since having been diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome, sometimes I find that I need to adapt the way I share information to accommodate my cognitive health needs since then.
I've received so much wonderful feedback on these written horoscopes, and it does my heart so much good to read what many of you have sent my way! Having said that, there are times when writing for you, the reader, and my private clients gets to be a strain on my eye function and cognitive health. In mulling this over, I've made the choice to explore YouTube forecasts as another way to get the information out there.
To allow time for cognitive healing and to upgrade to video format, regular horoscopes won't be published this week. Our goal is to be up and running with video 'scopes for all the signs next week. I appreciate your understanding as I work on new ways of sharing the astrological rundown with you!
In the meantime, here's a broader overview of the cosmic weather this week, and what you can expect as you move through it on the whole. Thank you once again for your support - I'm excited to begin a new adventure in communication with you all soon!
With love and blessings,
General Forecast for December 10 - 16, 2017
The 4th Quarter Virgo Moon on the 10th shows that we're learning to utilize things we've already learned to benefit us in a current situation, perhaps feeling ready to integrate healthier lifestyle choices, changes in the way we structure our days with routines and schedules, or going back over old subject matter to hone our skills and understanding at a much deeper level.
Make time for absorption of new information, allowing it to meld with new revelations that are coming to light. We're winding down toward Sunday's potent SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON, so give yourself the time and space needed to rest, recharge, and process mentally and emotionally as your Subconscious and Unconscious absorb and upgrade to a whole new level of understanding and awareness.
Changes in plans early on will be the norm. Flow with it, knowing that the Universe is working in mysterious (and potentially frustrating but oh-so-beneficial) ways for our very Highest Good! Example: the snowstorm making its way across the nation is bringing the need for flexibility in travel plans, and we're feeling it here in the Upper Midwest as lake effect snow from Lake Superior swirls all around! If timing doesn't work out with plans you've already made, there will certainly be a better time for that meeting; for the coffee date; for other things you might have wanted to set in motion. All is well.
More Cyclical Beginnings
New cyclical beginnings are also on tap for this week as the overall energy is directed within toward self-understanding, as MERCURY Rx joins with both the SUN and VENUS in Sagittarius from the 12th - 14th. This is a time of deep changes in perceptual awareness, of perhaps becoming more aware of the way our beliefs have impacted our world view and paradigms up to this point. Allow yourself to open to a broader perspective of Truth and existence, seeing things as if through the eyes of Eagle soaring above the land. And as Mercury joins with VENUS, our ideas around romance, money, and relating are under construction. Much of this month's Mercury Rx cycle has been about learning how to hold fast to our healthy boundaries in saying "no," in what to do if you're on the receiving end of an unpleasant "no" (hint: inner work and sorting is key to aiding you in shifting long-standing issues), and how to work together for the greater good if parts of a current agreement aren't serving all parties involved.
On the 15th, the SUN squares CHIRON Rx while also trining URANUS Rx, and once again, emotionally-charged or painful scenarios may manifest to help us reach the next level in our evolution. This may involve facing painful emotions or other life circumstances that trigger feelings of helplessness, brokenness, or disconnect/unworthiness. If so, these moments can help us see the roots of issues that hold us back from a viscerally keen place of awareness. Monumental shifts are sure to happen as we sort, seek assistance as needed, realign, and heal from the inside out. This is also a time when the body may act as messenger in the way of dis-ease, chiropractic issues, or other illness. Major breakthroughs are possible for health if you hold this as your intention.
New Moon Manifesting
Get your new moon wishes ready as we approach the SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON at 26 degrees on December 18. This new moon is loaded, kicking off a 2.5-year cycle wherever Sagittarius happens to fall within your personal birth chart. With this new moon activating the energies of SATURN as it prepares to leave Sagittarius just two days later, this new moon packs a serious punch for making our dreams a reality as we wrap up one era to catapult boldly into another. Reflect on how you've grown in the past few years, contemplating what chapters are coming to a close and where you're set to launch into the future! More on that to come in next week's horoscopes.
