This December is one for the books. It starts off with a full moon on December 3rd and there is a notable new moon on December 18th (dates may vary depending on where you are in the world). Plus a mercury retrograde is occurring. However the most important shift will occurring as Saturn leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn on December 23rd.
Saturn has been travelling through the constellation of Sagittarius for the past 2.5 years.
This month is about taking inventory of the lessons. Where have we grown over the past 2.5 years? Most importantly may we ask ourselves: where have we expanded?
The name of the game has been to update our beliefs. We’ve been asked to think outside the box and search for solutions in places we may not have previously looked.
We’ve been asked to trade in small mindedness and pessimism for an open heart.
We’ve been asked to leave behind a logical and linear way of living; for a world of potential and wonder.
It hasn’t been easy to get out of our own way and sometimes we needed a good push from the Universe.
What’s fallen away over the last 2.5 years is paving the way for our highest potential to take physical form.
Our beliefs are expanding and it’s time to let them; while looking back on how far we’ve come and convincing ourselves that life has got our backs.
There has been a subtle shift from feeling hopeless, desperate and lost; to rekindling our hope and faith in ourselves.
If we’re not totally trusting that’s okay. There are many case where we are still recovering from trauma or shocks. The energies over the last 5 years have been intense. The intensity is not going away but now we are getting used to it.
We are ready to work with the potential and roll with the changes. December is the end of 2017 however energetically we are wrapping up the last 2.5 years so keep that in mind as you reflect.
A bridge between our hearts and minds has been established over the last few years.
We can follow our hearts while also listening to our minds. We can cherish our minds while understanding it does not have access to the whole picture. We can bow to the desires of our hearts without having to logically figure them out.
For a long time there has been a battle between our heads and our hearts. If this December will teach us one thing, it’s this:
