Dark Moon in Sagittarius - Wednesday 13th December @ 10.31am NSW. On the night of the dark moon, reflect on a new cycle with fresh beginnings. This is a time of optimism and hope – to focus on what you truly wish to create in your life.
Mercury retrograde from 14th Dec 2023 – 2nd Jan 2024 is the third and final retrograde of the year. This is an ideal time to stop overthinking and just be in the slipstream. It is an opportunity to give your mind a rest from the busyness of life. Overachieving, perfectionism and too high expectations of yourself and others can take its toll on the mind & body. If you are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted take it one day at a time. This is a time to rest and recharge.
Maybe spend less time on socials and more time absorbing the beauty of the natural world around you. Nature heals and allows energy to flow through you.
Nurture your wellness and take the time to relax and breathe. Look after you!
Summer Solstice - Friday 22nd December celebrates the longest day and the shortest night in the southern hemisphere. Equinoxes and solstices are solar festivals. Ancient druids with their golden sickles, considered the solstice to be one of the most potent times to gather healing herbs, as it is intricately linked to the feminine earth energies. Some of the botanicals associated with the summer solstice are Mugwort, St John’s Wort, Vervain, Yarrow and all seasonal flowers.
Summer Solstice is both a fire and water festival representing the masculine and feminine principles. The yang fire cleanses and purifies, whilst the yin water of the rivers, lakes & oceans offers receptive healing & renewal.
As the Sun moves into the earth sign of Capricorn, enjoy these precious moments by finding the magic that exists in the everyday life with this festival of creativity and passion. Indulge in the sweetness of life & celebrate what brings you joy!
Full Moon in Cancer - Wednesday 27th December 11:33am NSW. The moon is at home in the tender sign of Cancer and this raw, emotional Mama Moon is in full illumination. Be soft and kind as many hearts have been shattered by recent world events. Treat yourself and others with a huge dose of compassion. Water signs are full of empathy and deep sensitivity, so you may need a gentle hug to soothe your grief or sadness.
Listen to your body and what you need. Maybe step away from the intensity of life, even for a brief moment to be in the stillness. Bring your body home to rest. Slow down and enjoy nourishing food. Cultivate love and connection to those you treasure.
