December Moon Flow -
Life is an Adventure

Hello Health & Happiness readers, I'm Cassandra Eve, Whole Woman astrologer and creative facilitator. I'm really inspired to be joining Health & Happiness magazine with a monthly column on the Moon's flow. I hope my offering of universal rhythms will impassion you to explore deeply your role as a universal co-creator.

Everything on Earth is living to the pulse and rhythms of the Universe. Becoming conscious of those natural rhythms, and our part in them as human beings, is one of the keys to self-understanding and fully creative life expression. Astrology is a map-making system for universal flow and rhythm, charting the cycles and energetic patterns of the planets and their effects on the human psyche. We know that the Moon, as the nearest planet to Earth, governs the ocean tides, plant growth and animal body clocks, also our natural rhythms of sleep, menstruation, moods, emotions and cycles of inner growth. Her waxing and waning through each of the twelve zodiac signs over 29 days also signifies the changing modes and flavours available for self expression, and the activation of larger cycles of growth potential available to us. She's a guiding light for a deeply intuitive feeling connection to Life. In exploring her journey we may embody that connection, becoming more intimate with our place in the universe as co-creators.

December Moon Flow - Life is an Adventure

Hello beloved Health & Happiness readers. We are travelling towards the Solstice, the time of maximum darkness or light depending on location. Here in the northern hemisphere it’s the most inward point before the return of the light and the lengthening of the days towards spring. It’s a time for reflection, inward journeying and hope as we anticipate the lighter days to come. Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere is the entry point into Capricorn season where self-mastery is the calling. Much more to come on that as its ruler Saturn moves into Capricorn this month. Manifestation through authenticity is the name of the game for the next three years! First we have Sagittarius however, the fire sign of enthusiasm, optimism and joy that we need inwardly during the darker days. Sagittarius is the traveller of the zodiac and with Gemini, its polarity, rules the mind: Gemini being the rational logical hemisphere, Sagittarius, the abstract. This month sees Messenger Mercury, ruler of the rational mind, communication and travel station retrograde. It’s a month for reflection and re-on our short and long term plans, vision and direction, but also a month when we can simply forget the plans and enjoy the moment! Somehow in fully enjoying what’s now, our plans find a new place to land quite naturally when the time is ripe.

This month’s Full Moon is on 3 December at 15.47GMT at 11 Gemini. With the Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Gemini this is a light and sociable Full Moon. It could be a time for seeing friends, having fun, enjoying life. With planet of communication and travel Mercury station retrograde just before the Full Moon however it’s a good idea to keep plans fluid and options open. We may find plans fall apart at the last minute, or we’re let down in some way. Miscommunications, foot in mouth moments, confusion, delusions and simply misreading the signs are highlighted. A T-square from the Full Moon to Neptune in Pisces shows the need for a creative response to any changes. It may be cosying up at home rather than being the life-and-soul of the party is exactly what you need anyway. It's a time for taking whatever happens lightly - a Gemini gift - and discovering a bigger perspective on any misunderstandings. Being truth-full is a key awareness.

If you’re not drawn to socialise at this time this is also a brilliant Full Moon for creativity with words, art or spiritual practice. The mind is opened to the imaginative realms; the capacity for fantasy or visionary creativity is high. There’s a lot of planetary activity as this time. This Full Moon sees the first of a series of trine aspects between Blessing-giver Jupiter in Scorpio and Planet of Mystery Neptune in Pisces, taking us through to August 2018. This profoundly sweet aspect brings the potential for deep emotional connections, inspired creativity and opens the generosity of utterly selfless actions. It’s an altruistic connection that calls us to recognise our unity as human beings. Highlighted signs: Gemini, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Pisces

This month’s New Moon emerges at 06.30 GMT on 18 December at 26 Sagittarius, the sign of adventure, travel and philosophy. Every New Moon is a powerful time for new beginnings but this one more than most. It’s a time for optimism, expansion and trust. There’s a huge focus on fire energy - passion, enthusiasm and creativity; ideas and opportunities abound. A flowing Grand Fire Trine from the New Moon to Great Awakener Uranus with Asteroid Goddess of Wisdom Pallas Athena in Aries, and to point of destiny the Moon’s North Node with Earth Mother Ceres in Leo, points to a time for fun, sociability and letting your heart lead. Moon ruler Jupiter in Scorpio is square to the Nodes so it’s a time for awareness about what’s old patterning in your responses to life and others, and what’s a new adventure. Trust your deep intuition and wisdom about what you need but don’t forget that Sagittarius is the sign of the adventurer. This is about big picture perspective and exploring possibilities. It’s time to break through those old self-limiting beliefs! With Messenger Mercury still retrograde until 23 December it’s not a time for launching new projects but it’s certainly a time to enjoy life to the full. As Helen Keller said so wisely ‘Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all’. Highlighted signs: Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

With many blessings and love
