December’s Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is all about transformation, transmutation and change with a capital C! Not only does it begin a brand new six month soli-lunar cycle that will take us all into 2020, but it also sets the tone for the collective masculine and feminine energies as we enter a brand new decade!
It’s time to set your intentions and plant those seeds for what you want to grow for the next six months. With the Sun and Moon in ambitious Capricorn, it’s time to switch your focus away from relationship dynamics and self-care, to career and the coins.
Thanks to Jupiter, there is some very fortunate and expansive energy tied into the signature of this eclipse, making it excellent for expanding your horizons and boosting confidence levels.
If you’ve been feeling a little tired, off-centre or just a bit meh, then this is the injection of oomph you’ve been waiting for. Boom! You are back!

Friday’s Aquarius New Moon marks the start of a more emotionally detached, collaborative four week cycle that urges us to focus on connection, collaboration and community.
This brand new cycle will draw a line under the emotionally intense energy of the last two weeks that began with the Cancer Lunar Eclipse on January 10 2020. See this move from water to air energy as an opportunity to detach a little from the emotional depths of the subconcious and take a helicopter view of situations.
Aquarius is the zodiac sign associated with team effort, philanthropy, idealism as well as friendship and group efforts. See this as your green light to seek out more likeminded individuals with whom you resonate. It’s time to live more in line with your values and principles – and to identify where you can use your unique talents or perspectives to benefit the wider world.

Born between any of these dates? (See the video above)… If so, then you probably have the north or south node in Cancer/Capricorn. This means that the January 2020 Cancer Eclipse is likely to be extra powerful for you.
The closer your nodes and/or natal planets fall to 22 degrees of Cancer or Capricorn, the more likely it is that the Wolf Moon lunar eclipse, which takes place on Friday 10 January 2020, will coincide with a time of major soul lesson integration and karmic rebalancing.
Still, with Saturn and Pluto in the mix, things are likely to be intense. This is about releasing the past and closing out the six month cycle which began on July 2 2019 at the Cancer Solar Eclipse.
It’s time to own your power, stand in your truth AND take charge of your destiny.

Paradigm shifts, rites of passage, movement and travel, bridging the gaps between vantage points, and linking people or places via communication or information exchange – these are all likely to be major themes at the Full Moon in Gemini.
Given all of this, I think it interesting that the Full Moon takes place on 12/12, which from a numerological point of view, can not only be seen as a number that marries opposites (1 = yang/masculine + 2 = yin/feminine energy), but can also be reduced to the number 3, which is the number in sacred geometry that creates a triangle from a straight line. Not only does this (literally!) add another dimension to the equation, but it also creates harmony and balance from two warring/polarised energies.
The moral of the story: the next two weeks is likely to be a busy, eventful time filled with travel, communications and exchanges of information. But, with Venus forming a triple conjunction to Saturn and Pluto between the 11th and 13th, it is also likely to be crunch time for decisions – a personal crossroads on many levels, when we are being asked to narrow down our options and cut back what is dead/dying in order to pursue what we really want/value.
The best way to visualise this Full Moon is to think about thresholds and doorways – just like the High Priestess card in the tarot. When you come to a major crossroads, as you are likely to do over the next two weeks, it is important to decide whether you want to build a bridge or close a gate. Essentially, Gemini is a twin sign = a fork in the road – deciding between two options or ways to go. Who/what you decide to let in or build up, or close down/keep out is up to you. But choose you must.
In this respect, it’s worth noting that in ancient folklore, the December Full Moon is known as the Cold Moon. From a symbolic point of view, this seems to emphasize the fact that Gemini is an air – not a water – sign. This points to the need to keep a calm head during what is usually an emotionally-charged time.
This probably because there will be a lot of trickster energy around (the Full Moon will be making a T-square to Neptune). So it will very be important to take your time and keep your wits about you so that you don’t fall for Mercurial/Neptunian ‘smoke and mirrors.’.

On Monday 2 December, Jupiter will ingress into determined and pragmatic Capricorn for a year-long stay. This hasn’t happened for 12 years, so is quite a big deal. The last time Jupiter was here was between Dec 2007 and Jan 2009, so you may want to think back to that period in order to find parallels with now.
Your beliefs, long term goals, philosophical bent and future plans are likely to switch:
Hiring the services of an expert or finding a sponsor/mentor who can help you to take your plans/skills/ambitions to the next level is a wise move under this transit.
Learning to expand within the limits of system/rules/the law is also likely to be another big theme.
This is about walking the fine line between expansion and contraction, between freedom and limits, between more and less. For once with Jupiter, bigger won’t always be better. Think more in terms of a mature, classy, understated vibe.

Passion, self-control, trust and self-possession – these are all likely to be major themes activated by November’s New Moon in fearless and intense Scorpio.
Taking place in the first decanate of Scorpio, this New Moon is likely to focus our attention on ways to achieve greater inner alignment between body, heart and soul – to unite subconscious instinct with lived experience and deeply-felt spiritual truths in order to achieve greater emotional congruence.
The Sabian symbol for this particular lunar phase urges us to spend the next 28 days focusing on ways to create greater inner stability and poise, despite changing outer circumstances or any inner emotional turmoil that may occur when we get sub-consciously triggered.
Get ready to do some serious inner work. The good news is that if you do, you’re likely to undergo some powerful inner transformations this month. Learning to cultivate inner strength will also free you from the grip of the reactive mind, allowing you to detach from any compulsions, fears or addiction to emotional drama that may have been holding you back.

Halloween 2019 will be especially spooky: not only will Mercury be turning retrograde in scary Scorpio on October the 31st, but thanks to ongoing Parliamentary hi-jinks between Boris Johnson’s ragtag government and a bellicose, rebellious Parliament, the prospect of a No-Deal Brexit continues to loom large.
As we saw back in February-March, when Mercury retrograded in Pisces, Westminster politics went into meltdown. Now it looks as though the same thing could happen again.
With Venus set to form a ‘make-or-break’ sextile to powerful Pluto today, before joining up with Mercury next Wednesday (30th) – the day before it changes direction, the clock is ticking.
Can the movement of these two planets offer us any clues as to how this particular episode in the Brexit drama is likely to end? Find out in my latest post on the AstroInsights Blog.
PS. I also enjoyed the recent poll by Beano comic books, which revealed that:
54% of families are drawing direct inspiration from Brexit for their Halloween plans on ThursdaySky News
In fact, nearly a third of respondents plan to dress up as Boris Johnson (who was named ‘ghastliest figure of the century’, while 20% of British households plan to use Brexit-themed decorations at their Haloween celebrations this year.
