A Full Gemini Moon that culminates on the 12th of the 12th 2019 (=12!) numerically empowers with a triple enshrined number of completion – ‘12’: so fitting for the last Full Moon of the Year. And as the 20’s beckon – albeit tentatively with righteous caution, it is events and situations that surround this curious end-of-decade Gemini Moon that we discover and disseminate all kinds of info that could make sense of our current quest to keep the flame of hope alive.

December opens with both Mercury and Mars in Scorpio keeping motivation going strong. Completing a two-month extended stay (due to the recent retrograde) December 9, Mercury will leave Scorpio for a quick stint through Sagittarius (to December 28). The transit is well timed for putting a smile on it and all the extras that this time of year brings. (By all means, make sure to include yourself on the gift list and do something that makes you feel good about yourself.)

Your internal process is literally global, a theme fundamental to the Mutable Fire, or Sagittarian, consciousness.
Mutable Fire is all about the sharing and spreading of, or transmitting, your light to all those with whom you come into contact with. You carry your values, beliefs and stories to the places you are drawn to. In many parts of the world, you become a living newspaper as your stories serve to open up the awareness of others.

If the best defense is a good offense, we’re likely to feel very safe over the six weeks that Mars traverses his second home of Scorpio. Yet for many of us, there could be some anxieties brewing as the Cosmic Warrior is both active and reactive after being bogged down by paperwork and procedures in Libra.
Mars plays defense in the sign of the scorpion. He’s up on the castle walls, firing catapults and arrows at the invaders – and perhaps also mistakenly at guests and well-meaning visitors. Usually, he fires a few warning shots before taking serious aim, but that may not be the case this time around.

For those who look up to the starry firmament and wonder why the brightest light in the night sky, our beautiful Moon, is often referred to in folklore and astrological parlance as the ‘Triple Moon Goddess’, well, this is the Full Moon for you. With an ‘exalted’ and still earthy, crazy intense, Taurean Full Moon, we get to experience all three natural archetypes to full effect, with Maiden, Mother and Crone shining brightly against a twinkling starry background of interlinking relationships.

Mercury retrograde tours Scorpio to November 20. This peel it back transit can be hard hitting if it makes direct contact to your chart. To the plus, it can be useful for getting to the core of what the issue is. Mercury retrograde is always a productive time for reflection and re-examination. Revisit, regroup, reprioritize. Venus in Sagittarius (November 1 to 25) accompanies the Mercury retrograde introspection. Together they serve to broaden the scope, true your aim, and enrich both the process and the potential

What you most love, your soul will become. Your desire brings you into the experience you have in your soul’s journey. Only when you master your desire energy can you consciously direct your soul towards your inmost heart’s desires.
What is this love that the soul follows?

The above title is for the initial impression of a lively and vital, intrepid Full Aries Moon horoscope – one that constellates so many different areas of life; it comes from a quote written by 19th Century existential philosopher Fredrich Nietzsche, who says in full “You must still have chaos within your soul to give birth to a Dancing Star”. ‘To give birth’ symbolises bringing forth a creative project, heralding joy with a crowning moment announcing the entrance of something or someone dashing, new and exciting.

The Cosmic Warrior strides into Libra on the 4th of October this year, only to be reminded by his host, Venus, to wipe his muddy boots – or better yet leave them at the door. Mars isn’t too happy in rule-oriented and mannered Libra, but he’ll be quite busy over the next six weeks. The theme of this time is overcoming restrictions, as we work through Mars in Libra while Mercury is retrograde (or in his shadow). Little is said or done directly, and we could feel that backroom deals are going on out of sight, or that we’re mired in bureaucracy.

Have you felt stalled, stuck, or stymied over the past few months? That is about to change. Saturn in Capricorn has recently ended retrograde and Pluto in Capricorn will do the same just before midnight (PDT) on October 2. Time and reality’s dictates hit the forward march, now heeding a more specific drumbeat. Both transits are hard at work on the completion of lengthy chapter while also actively in script development for the next storyline.
We have also been under the influence of Jupiter’s square to Neptune, a transit that has been in effect since the start of the year. Jupiter/Neptune has kept the potential and the uncertainty well afloat.
