December 21, 2010 Horoscope

Our imagination can’t drive fifty-five as Mercury sextiles Neptune on Tuesday December 21, which is exceptional for exceeding our creative spirits. Alternative options to solve problems are available if we are seeking it. Favorable energy for artistic folks, musicians, writers, and those with expressive crafts. While all this imagination is taking us into never-never land, a faraway place where we can find salvation. Our emotions are flood with today’s Full Moon, and in Gemini we crave to escape the drama and just move forward in life. As the Full Moon is in complete light, so are our intentions and the answers that we are seeking. This is a very special Full Moon as we have a Lunar Eclipse which is known to create crisis in our lives, to get what we are emotionally seeking – by making internal sacrifices. This ecliptic full moon could appear a bright red or blood orange hue, other details in pcmag.com. So this is a day that we begin ‘to let go’ in order to fly high. In Gemini, we should be focusing on releasing areas that are in connection with our emotional intellect, mood, attitudes, and perspective – so that we can learn and develop fresh views, better ways of communicating, and breaking barriers with what we assume are limitations which mostly exist only in our minds. The energy from the eclipses are known to last between three to six months, so if you haven’t already seen some shifting, most likely you will. And again, Gemini is ruled by Mercury who is in retrograde for the rest of the month. As he REtrogrades, he is appearing to be in REverse and REturning to REmember and REview past steps. Much of the ecliptic crisis and changes come from within ourselves, as we shift internally. REconnecting to what our heart needs, REjecting that which hasn’t work, and RE-educating ourselves. To know where this will be affecting you more, refer to your natal chart and to the house that Gemini rules. That particular room will be the stage that shines under the limelight. For an example, the spotlight is illuminating my ninth house, which rules some areas such as: philosophy, teaching, publishing, law, long distance travel, higher education ~ which I’ve been looking at what have done with my life so far, and thinking about what I want to do with it, and what sacrifices I will need to make, if I want to move forward. I’m in a pretty decent place in my life, so not much of a ‘crisis’ other than giving up on old hopes to sail onto unfamiliar waters. Anyway, you get the idea.

Shortly after, the Moon will sink into the comforting waters of Cancer where we take the time to nurture our inner selves. We’re encouraged to get in touch and take care of our sensitive side. Favorable energy is concentrating on domestic duties in the home, nurturing, caring, loving, and stirring the passions that fuel us for life. We also have the Winter Solstice today, which is known as the shortest day of the year, where we consume a large amount of darkness. I look at darkness as the female side of energy, our imagination, intuition, creativity. self-discover, self-healing – our inner abilities. Celebrate these gifts by spending some quality time with ourselves, aware that we can create our destiny by beginning with ourselves. Bring light into your evening, as we have much to honor with so much happening. Enjoy some time outside with a small fire, light the fireplace, or burn a few candles. Rather than concentrating on our losses and on yesterdays… find appreciation for what you have, and give gratitude.

We also have the Sun fading from the adventurous dreamer Sagittarius and developing itself in enterprising Capricorn later this evening. We use what we can from our weeks of fantasizing, and we begin to build on it with actual steps. We’re less talkative and more about action. What we said we were going to do, we can actually create strong foundations for the next four weeks. Be excited, as Mars is also in Capricorn, who will enhance your willpower, delivering all the manpower that you need. And although Mercury retrogrades through Sagittarius, we can REthink and REcalculate our steps to make them perfect. Make your list as to what you want to accomplish, and get started immediately ~ especially as Mercury squares Jupiter tonight. We’re eager to talk, share stories, and dream big. We have much on our minds, as thoughts are traveling at great speed. If you must, write it all down, journal, and sift through all your ideas tomorrow. During the next four weeks, Sun is ready to roll up his sleeves and get back to work. Concentrate on cleaning yourself up, as Sun in Capricorn worries about his reputation, so if he is to play the part – he’s got to look the part. Spiff up your wardrobe, have better hygiene, revamp your resume, and so on. Put out applications to get a job, start your own company, do what it takes to establish some strong ground for security. Show people you have what it takes, and you’re will to do what is needed to get the job done. Don’t talk about it. Do it. Period. Have a great day! Starcana
