Dec 21 2018    Sun    enters Capricorn
It will be back to business in some ways this weekend as the Sun leaves jovial, freedom-loving Sagittarius and enters the Saturn ruled sign of Capricorn.   This is the time of year when people follow their traditions to celebrate the holidays.  It is cold outside and focusing on helping the less fortunate is important.  This is also the end of a tax year when people must organize their business details.
It is also in Capricorn season that we look ahead and make a list of resolutions of what we want to accomplish in the coming year.  It sounds like things are so austere and regimented under Capricorn’s influence. But don’t forget we also get the best gifts!
Achieving Saturn goals is usually fraught with deprivation (dieting), restrictions (not spending but saving money) and other tiresome chores on a daily basis.  People with a strong Saturn influence in their charts will make more difficult plans for themselves and claim greater victories in the end, however, we all have the ability to tap into our Saturn energies when we want and use our willpower to obtain our goals.
What do you want to accomplish this year?
Dec 22 2018  Full Moon

We have all heard the effects of the full Moon where emergency room visits escalate and people act a bit more “lunatic” than usual. Some claim that this is an old superstition but it is a scientific fact that the ocean tides rise as the ocean on the side of Earth facing the moon gets pulled toward the Moon!! This creates high tide and pulls the ocean water away from the earth!

Although there doesn’t seem to be any scientific proof of the full Moon effects on humans, the fact that the human body is made up of approximately 80% of water, it is easy to understand why the full Moon may have such an effect on people, especially those with an emphasis of water in their charts (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces).

This Full Moon may symbolize the development of something begun around that last New Moon on December 7th.  The Moon is powerful in Cancer as it is in the sign that it rules and portends to auspicious events for people in general.   This is a wonderful time to spend with family, eating good food, being home and patriotic activities.

The U.S is a Cancer country born on July 4th so this Full Moon is an auspicious development for the country.  This Full Moon falls In the same sign as the U.S. Sun and at the prominent cardinal 0 degree:

“The monthly cycle of the Moon from New to Full and back again marks out the main ‘beats’  within the annual cycle. . . and would also appear to be an important factor in changes of political mood, movements on commodity markets, etc.” (Mundane Astrology M.Baigent, N. Campion & C.Harvey)

One interpretation of this Full Moon conjunct the natal U.S. Sun would be a shift of perspective on how we organize (Sun) our country.  For example, health care and other laws which will begin on January 1st may heighten people’s awareness regarding these and other issues.
