The Cancer Full Moon on December 27,will be at 11.33 am, positioned at 4 degrees Cancer 58’, the 5th degree of the sign. This will have the Sabian symbol “At a railroad crossing, an automobile is wrecked by a train”. This symbol illustrates the tragic results which are likely to occur when an individual’s will pits itself carelessly against the power of the collective will of society, resulting in karmic readjustment!

The Sun in the 5th degree of Capricorn will have as his symbol, “Indians on the warpath. While some men row a well-filled canoe, others in it perform a war dance.” This symbolizes the mobilization of physical and emotional energies in a spirit of conquest, a necessary ingredient of which may be aggressiveness.

The Moon is strongest when desposited by Cancer, the sign of her rulership, she will also be the focal point of a Kite, formed through an Earth Grand Trine involving the Sun in Capricorn, Jupiter in Taurus and Artemis (a Moon Goddess) in Virgo. It will be a good time to stop and take stock, counting your blessings and working steadily towards plans to sustain your position in the world so that you can support those you love and your home.

Chiron the Wounded Healer will Station Direct less than 4 hours later on at 15 Aries 27’ making a grand Trine of his own to Pele (Hawaiian Volcano Goddess) in Sagittarius and Diana (the Roman version of Artemis) in Leo. He will also be the focal point of a Yod formed by awkward quincunx aspects to Pallas Athena in Scorpio and Black Moon Lilith in Virgo. It would seen that healing energy will receive the help of a bounty of feminine archetypes as he begins to move forward once more!

The last two days of December and first three weeks of January will be a very lucky time as Venus will have entered Sagittarius the sign of Jupiter’s rulership, whilst he is already in her rulership of Taurus. This means they will be in mutual reception, so able to see each other most clearly and work together as the two Benefics of traditional astrology most productively! Jupiter himself will strengthen his impact by Stationing Direct on December 31 at 1.40 pm positioned at 5 Taurus 34’. So all matters connected with these two signs will be strengthened and blessed, including love, relationships, finances, health and creative projects. A great New Year present to begin 2024!
