Feeling the last full moon of the year in Cancer, Moon of feeling, emotions, sensitivities, safety/security/comfort, the home and your inner world. Like all full moons it’s an endpoint, culmination and a releasing. After this year it’s a good moon to end on. Moon opposite Sun in Capricorn, work, limits, responsibilities, external world, it can feel like hard work. Balance is now needed between the two, being a Cancer Full Moon, it’s about how you feel, about all that has happened in the Capricorn themes or areas of life.
This Full moon makes a square(separating) to Chiron, the wound, a place of vulnerability. You may be feeling tension around emotional issues or needs, an awareness of the sore spot, just feeling raw/sore/tired, being triggered and poked.
Venus squares Neptune, a glitch, an attachment, what you want or desire may not happen, maybe some disappointment. Neptune takes it away, it’s too foggy or just not realistic or for you. Stay detached here, something else will be coming through, and it’s ok to not know what that may look at for now. Be gentle, caring with yourself if things dissolve.
What helps this Full Moon is the sweet easy aspect to Uranus in Taurus, the release or ending to the tension from Chiron through something new, innovative, better, to move you away from the old. An easy way or path is the go, and you will be shown this or just feel it. It will lift you up, you may feel freer, this is the new way. Release the old dynamic or story.
Saturn and Jupiter both in Aquarius, (Uranus rules), in my books the step towards a better future starts here, what no longer works for you, what does not fit, what doesn’t feel good anymore, look here. All of the insights from the far future taps into the easy aspects to the Sun and Moon.
Make some distance, move away from the old, move into a safer future.
Find peace, calm and a quiet place.

This new moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, square the nodes is a new beginning, it may be painful and it will hurt (chiron) also a turning point between the past and future.
This new moon is about your courage to keep moving beyond this place you’re now facing, it will take all of your inner resources, nerve, will and confidence to move into the new beginnings as the old falls down. Feel it, heal it, work with all the tools/resources you have to keep you healthy, grounded and safe, it’s your inner well of courage that will get you there. Stay present in the moment, focus on the now, face what’s right in front of you.
Chiron conjuncts this new moon, feeling vulnerable, pain/wounded, Chiron being in Aries makes it proactive, the only way to work with Chiron is to heal what hurts. The more you work with the pain you discover the gifts of your healing, which brings in strength, wisdom and empowers you. This is Chiron gift.
Were moving into new territory with the square to the nodes, past and future, a choice is upon you, a turning point. South node (past) in Capricorn, structures, rules, tradition, the known, go North to Cancer (future), which is emotional stability and security, feeling safe. Check in with what’s inside of you, how much courage, trust, strength, self belief, self confidence do you have. Do you know or think you can make it without the old structures? It’s an Aries moon, you just have too, even if it feels unknown, uncomfortable and you feel vulnerable, which is part of the north nodes journey.
Be patient, Stay focused
Act instinctively, Act consciously
Be Awake and Aware
Find a Quiet Place and get Calm
MARS conjunct JUPITER, MERCURY square CHIRON.
A new cycle begins with Mars/Jupiter connecting, you have a spirit, motivation and energy for change, to take action and expand on life. Opportunity and possibilities are here, if so…. act now. It’s happening in the sign of Scorpio, go boldly forward, dig deep, take yourself to new deeper depths of your emotions, commitments. You want some intensity, personal power, intimacy and deeper bonding in your life for some major transformation to take place.
Passions and courage are strong, you have an attitude for change and you feel like you can achieve it.
Just watch out for the rough edge of this, Jupiter urges Mars on, to go big, go hard, you can overdo it and that, takes you to a whole other level of change, which you may not really want to go.
Work with the sextile to the Sun, Venus, Pluto all in Capricorn, have structure, goals, rules, stay grounded and steady in the urge for more.
Mercury and Chiron are squaring off while all this is happening, thoughts, communication or your mind and how you process/think about things may be causing you problems and pokes the sensitive spot again, so watch out for all Mercury themed things.

SATURN square CHIRON +Mercury quincunx Uranus + Mercury trine Chiron.
You may find that dealing with a sore spot or hurt is taking it’s time to move on or cleared up. As Saturn is putting a block/restriction or limiting you. Being patient, going slowly and being mature is the best approach and if you have been dealing with the sore spot over the last year you should find that it’s as not sore as it once was or perhaps you are getting closer to understanding the sore spot.
Mercury is talking nicely to Chiron, helping through words/conversation and listening, But you know it’s about pains, hurts and getting into the deeper things and that’s not easy.
Uranus does however bring in a spin, a sudden or shock may be involved in all of the above.
Still about being patient and making adjustments to your thinking or mind.
It feels like it’s really taking it’s time, and that all about the Saturn.

MARS opposite Chiron, Mercury opposite Uranus.
It may be a prickly day with these two aspects. First off Mars opposite Chiron brings in some kind of hurts as the wound is being poked at. You may feel like your interest or desire cannot be acted on, you just cannot see a way to do this, so some frustration, pissed of emotions may emerge.
Add this to the mix, Mercury/Uranus, is the plan changes, but you may not want it to. So you have to change your mind, look at it differently, go with the flow.
Make adjustments, don’t go on the attack. This will not work out.
Work through the emotions that come up for you, and they will be the ones that make you uncomfortable, annoyed, as Chiron is involved, brings it to the surface.
Take a slower, gentler way through the day.
There’s some intensity in the air, things are changing, perhaps getting clearer perhaps not. You feel like you need to find a way or to know the way, forward. . But you can’t Saturn wants you to pace yourself, look at what’s in front of you. If things feel blocked, they will eventually get unblocked your job now is patience, perseverance.
Mars opposite Neptune – 23-26th, a level of uncertainty in areas of faith, idealism, trust and action can come into play. Neptune brings in the illusion or delusion part, its foggy.
You don’t know yet, which way it goes.
Mercury square Saturn, then opposes Chiron – 25-28th, brings in information, conversations that may bring up some pain, hits the sore spot, Saturn narrow things down, delays, limits, restricts here. Work with the facts, keep calm and keep it real, have a methodical mind during this transit. Also don’t jump ahead of yourself. Watch the negative self talk or talk, mastering your thoughts and mind.
Jupiter quincunx Chiron – 19-27th, making adjustments, maybe having to let go of something or someone. This may also have been an ideal, belief, attitude or even something of truth.
It’s a climb to the mountain top, and to rise you have to let go and change.
Moon in Sagittarius, you are seeking the truth, a way forward, a goal to aim for now.
Balsamic moon phase, time before the new moon, you may really feel like winding down, feeling like letting go, that even apart of you is literally dying away into a nothingness. Ideally it’s an internal, quite time of the moon. You may still be releasing after the Full moon in Pisces, wrapping things up, the endings.
Moon has just entered Virgo, ground down into earthy realms, looking at the details.
Venus quincunx Chiron, love, self-esteem, beauty, relationship hit a bit of a sore spot over the last few days, some little annoyance perhaps got in the way of you really just enjoying the Venus/Jupiter aspect which was also about. You may have felt hopeful/optimistic for something or someone, but felt the pain, or disappointment of the quincunx. You work through the vulnerabilities and feeling uncomfortable, aware what it has brought up for you.
Just as Venus comes off her aspect to Chiron she meets up with Uranus, an unusual, surprise or sudden bit comes into play. You like excitement, some relief perhaps.
Uranus brings in insight out of the blue, the unexpected!
Well, the energy has settled somewhat, not as twitchy as the last few days. But, I would say you’re feeling tired/drained from it.
Venus the planet of love and money is in a harmonious aspect to Jupiter, expansion, brings in a happy vibe. You might be feeling more social, more willing to open up and share, feeling more optimistic, hopeful. Wanting to lighten up a little here. Maybe just watch the money side of things, as in spending too much. Or just laying it all out there.
Venus conjunct the North Node of fate, a future might be in the making here, so pay attention to who/what is around now.
Venus/Jupiter in a quincunx(adjustments) to Chiron(wound, a sore spot, insecure) which will make it interesting, this is building now. Hold on a bit, don’t get to carried away, as Jupiter’s influence often does make you feel. There is more to these aspects that is not really ready to unfold as of yet.
