Well, we’re still here then!
Of course, the humourists have been at work with “it’s not the end of the world” jokes. This has made me think about two things – one, that humour is so important. This is not to disrespect anyone’s troubles but, in terms of the much loved phrase “a positive attitude”, the ability to put an amusing spin on life’s challenges can often make the difference between coping or not. Secondly, clients coming for consultations nearly always fear “bad news” yet bad news (difficult things)/good news (easy things) are the two sides of the same coin and such is the stuff of life.
This week’s astrology is no exception. It’s an easy start to the week, and I especially like the fact that the Moon sails through light hearted and playful Gemini throughout Christmas Day, with the Moon – Jupiter conjunction exact at 00.19 GMT on the 26th. If you have clear skies on Christmas night you’ll see Jupiter blazing away next to a nearly Full Moon. Make a wish! In fact, make two! Jupiter rules good fortune and in Gemini, sign of the Twins, it’s the perfect time for doubling up.
Mars also changes sign, about an hour later, moving into Aquarius. Note that this is not a water sign – only the sign of the Water Bearer. Aquarius is an air sign, element of the mind, and its strengths are questioning, analysis, logic and objectivity. In short, every dream needs an action plan and the “how to” is an increasingly important theme as we travel into the New Year.
This is underlined by the Full Moon in Cancer (exact at 10.22 GMT on Friday). All Full Moons illuminate or bring things full cycle and as this one lights up the Sun/Saturn/Pluto relationship you may have to work with the bad before you get to the good. in other words, something’s “gotta give” or be radically overhauled to pave the way to an improvement. Such challenges may feel like “bad news”, especially when facing up to something we fear, but the moments of very deep insight are also a gift.
