We start the Month looking trouble in the face saying “I have had enough of you” It is time to take your power back and own your space.
Things, in most cases horrible things, have been brewing under the surface for quite a while, now all will be exposed and we need to see the light and will have no option but to take action.
When Mercury the mover, communicator, thinker planet moved into Scorpio a fixed deeply intense and secretive water sign, an uneasy restless energy came across.
A retrograde motion can bring out the trickster in Mercury; in Scorpio the trickster’s secrets are revealed. End October Mercury retrograde in Scorpio began, and that is when troubled waters were beginning to emerge.
Many of us question what is toxic in our lives, what makes us feel uncomfortable, and what needs to change or end? Scorpio is brilliant energy that can help with elimination of toxins, death, and transformation.
Mercury the messenger has been exposing all sorts of secrets, speeding up endings and clearing space for resurrection.
Many people that have been hanging onto life have passed on, others have sadly taken their lives, and there have been those who have made a dynamic comeback embracing the changes that have occurred.
We have been witness or are experiencing retrenchment, cheating, weakening marriages or relationships. Negative patterns as well as false friends have come to light. Mercury sure does bring about all sorts of intense yet powerful endings and changes when in the sign of Scorpio.
We all carry our own demons and these demons have become a burden. This Mercury retrograde in Scorpio has made these demons very heavy to and we no longer need to continue bearing such a load.
In December Mercury is going in the right direction and we can turn this all around. As painful as it is, making that decision to eliminate that that is slowly eroding us helps us take back our power. If we don’t, then believe me we will continue feeling powerless.
We can take this action to destroy that that is destroying us as Mars has moved into Scorpio and will be there right through till January.
Mars in Scorpio is all about transformative action, it’s about digging deeply into your emotional being, and finding the courage to bring an end to negativity opening up a path for transformation as painful as this process is.
We have courage to make the change when Mars is in Scorpio, change has happened; now we must pick ourselves up, face the truth and live our truth.
If we want to grow, the only way we can do this is by putting in a disciplined form structure to either our lives or projects we are focusing on.
Yup Jupiter the planet that brings about things in a big way moves into Capricorn on the 3rd. He has not been there for 12 years but he is back in the sign that puts the structure back into expansion and growth.
What is of great importance is that on the 26th the Solar Eclipse will happen right next to Jupiter. With Solar Eclipses all possibilities are on the table, a great time to make new plans, to see life through a different lens, the ideal time to shift and make a new start. As this Eclipse occurs in Capricorn and connects by a degree or conjunction to Jupiter, this will be a big shift in structure.
For those interested in Astronomy this eclipse is an annular solar eclipse where the Moon covers the Sun’s centre, leaving the Sun’s visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon. … Solar eclipses happen when the Moon casts a shadow on Earth. The image is attached to this newsletter.
The Eclipse will occur at 7 13am but will not be visible in South Africa. That does not mean we won’t feel it.
With Jupiter in Capricorn, structure and discipline will become the motto for the year. If you have a dream, then make that dream a big dream, give it structure and have the discipline to work hard to achieve the heights you deserve.
2020 is going to be a very important year. If we have managed to come through the challenges and hardship this past year has exposed us to, we will have learnt the lessons of survival over all odds, this will give us the skill set to work hard and see the rewards a big focused disciplined outlook can bring to the table.
Everything big, wonderful and plentiful is ruled by Jupiter who has been going through Sagittarius for the past year where the drive to expand in a big way was triggered. But growing too fast can leave weakness, now as Jupiter ingresses into Capricorn the realisation that true growth takes discipline as well as a no nonsense respect for the way any change or growth should be approached.
Venus during this silly season is also in Capricorn, we may find ourselves restricting our spending or at least spending with wisdom. Venus is the ruler of all things desirable. When in Capricorn what is desired is that which has a purpose. Love and relationships may take on a more serious energy.
On the 21st Venus goes into Aquarius and technology becomes a desirable buzz point. When the planet ruling relationships and desire moves into Aquarius we may find ourselves falling for unusual people and forming deep friendships.
Fun in the Sun and outdoors activities are on the cards, so let’s look at how we can fix blistered sunburn.
Capricorn is prevalent this month and is a sign that has rulership over our skin, so protection of skin is key.
Aloe Vera is very soothing plant with thick leaves that contain a gel-like substance. This gel is thought to offer numerous health benefits. It is also thought to be a suitable remedy for helping to relieve the symptoms of sunburn. The gel contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties and can also help with moisturising and speed up healing.
To use Aloe Vera as a sunburn remedy, first place it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then, apply some of the gel directly onto the sunburned area. Leave the gel in place to allow it to take effect and repeat the process 5 to 6 times a day until the sunburn has subsided. You can also keep it in your cooler hiking bags.
Remember prevention is better than cure, I looked up at some home recopies for sun block, and many have coconut oil, Aloe Vera, as well as zinc in them.
So do your research, respect the Sun and take in as much fluid as you can. Dehydration is very dangerous and happens fast, so keep hydrated.
Enjoy the holidays and we will chat again in the New Year.
