ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 15, 2023-JANUARY 1, 2024
We all need a rest from too much work, too much worry, the chicken little the sky is falling news feeds and a weirdo energy that keeps showing up when you least expect it. Most feel like they’re hanging from a thread.
Pluto is doing its’ penultimate curtain call. You need to go slow with what is hidden from you. Perhaps it’s a bill, or a virus or a longing that could take you down. What you fear is changing places from something knowable to an electric short circuit.
In Capricorn, Pluto is practical and all too real. Money, economy, government, tradition, even your reputation are Capricorn things. As Pluto ends its’ transit of the last twenty years all the old rules are changing. And the wildcard of electricity gone awry makes for shock and awe and utter bewilderment.
If you want to wind down, schedule a break from all the noise December 23-28. Mars squares Neptune and you won’t feel like doing much and won’t know what you’re doing. Do not overindulge in substance of any kind and watch what happens that seems out of this world. Life is but a dream.
The Full Moon on December 26 at 4:33 PM pst is a hungry moon. Home and family will be the main players and even your Mother might make a ghostly or actual appearance. Eat, drink and enjoy the carbohydrates. Cancer is an eater and wants to be full and happy.
Pluto at the last degree of Capricorn after December 20 brings the degree that sums up the last twenty years. Climate, earth events or weather problems might set in. A key person in government might leave after an accident or a scandal between the 23rd and 28th of December.
Five days before the Full Moon, and on the Full Moon December 26, insatiable hunger and need will eat your house and your heart out. You might feel orphaned by life and craving love. Charles Dickens’ story, A Christmas Carol resounds.
The room at the top will tip and fall if the government stumbles. Capricorn is about reputation and some reputations will fall in 2024. Pluto in Capricorn disposes to Pisces, ruled by Neptune. Where are the rules, regulations and rituals? Many things we’re accustomed to will go into a delete box and get put out to sea.
Pisces is a beautiful sign yet it also is vague and elusive. Sometimes Pisces embellishes or is deceived without knowing it. They often live in a dream that casts themselves as the victim and the savior. Saturn in Pisces calls all Pisces in 2024 to stand for what you believe with family and friends.
The end of the tour in December features Mercury backtracking through Capricorn into Sagittarius. Mercury squares Neptune December 27, 28, 29 and you might ask “what have I done?” Time is spinning out and everything’s going too fast. People are feeling poor and spent. Extend now rather than withhold with fear.
In this wild weird adventure of life, the Wheel of Fortune reminds us that what goes up comes down and what is down goes up. Be in the middle and share what you have when the opportunity beckons. Be the vessel, the offering and the offered. After all, we are all One, aren’t we?

SCORPIO has some chaos in your life. The unpredictability of Uranus is toying with you. What you thought was a sure thing is not so sure. The wildcard looks good. Go for what speaks to your heart not your head. Your head often goes so fast it’s dizzying. And you make errors of judgement when you’re impatient.

Brusque and to the point, even when you have foot in mouth disease, things happen on your watch. No more dilly dallying with side streets. Take the main street.

CAPRICORN is exhausted with all the changes. Pluto leaving Capricorn at the end of January shows the true meaning of its’ transit. The true meaning for you is to not give power away by too much caretaking. Capricorn is so effective you cut to the chase and it’s done. Others go back and forth and frustrate you by gabbing.
The Full Moon on December 26 brings to a head the events of the last six months in a friendship or relationship. You feel like you’re over a barrel. Yet there is a solution that comes five days before, the day of, or five days after the Full Moon. Be patient if you lost yourself before with worry and anxiety. You can come back from anything.
AQUARIUS is on the verge of Fate. Fate comes calling after January 21 when Pluto enters your sign. People, projects and events will change your life over the next twenty years.

PISCES has Saturn testing your strength. Your fears are manifesting and you’re a little testy. The shortfall of money or time or affection is hard to face. Yet the reflection of the past haunts you. The past dreams and hopes are being restructured to accommodate your age and maturity. You are feeling old even if you’re young. Saturn sees you stoop to conquer.
The Full Moon on December 26 brings pressure between a lover and a friend. There might be waves if everyone doesn’t get fed. Be the host(ess), helper and director that makes it all come together. Afterward you can retire to your atelier. That’s what you want anyway, isn’t it?
