Things are relatively quiet this weekend as we close out the year— it seems that remainder of 2017 is all about the build up to the powerful Supermoon in Cancer, which comes exact on New Years Day! This beautifully aspected Full Moon happens to be the biggest, brightest and closest Supermoon of the year! Looks like 2018 is starting off with a bang! ☺
Friday (12/29): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is Void-of-Course in Taurus throughout most of the day, beginning at 6:47am MST. The moon is considered Void of Course (VOC) during the time between the moon’s last major aspect with another planet in its current sign and the moment it moves into the next sign. Because now is a time when the moon remains un-aspected, our inner world may become much more calm, quiet and clear. The VOC moon is a time when our intuition can become heightened, as it is free from outside planetary influences; however, too much mental or physical activity at this time can distort our psychic senses and cause us to take wrong action. This is why when we take action or begin a new project during the VOC moon, things often don't pan out. Likewise, any thoughts we may have or worries we may hold on to are also unlikely to come to fruition and are merely serving as a distraction from the inner quiet brought on by the void.
While the VOC moon is a fertile time for receiving insight and inspiration, now is not the time to act. In just a few hours, the moon will change signs, which will allow us to begin bringing to fruition whatever was seeded during this highly intuitive time of calm and contemplation.
Saturday (12/30): No major planetary aspects. The Moon is growing to fullness in the playful and curious sign of Gemini throughout the day. The moon’s transit through Gemini is a time of heightened emotional intelligence, making it one of the best times to socialize. Activities such as throwing parties, attending social events, sending cards, emails, and letters, connecting with old friends, and doing things that are spontaneous and playful are favored at this time. Movement is key, as curious Gemini likes to move quickly from one topic to the next. This moon placement also favors intellectual pursuits such as research, writing, journalism, and all other activities requiring us to think on our feet. The moon in Gemini is an excellent time to communicate creatively. It is also a time when our thoughts become more connected with our emotions, making it more difficult to discern between what we think and what we feel. Emotional bonds can be strengthened through communication making this is a great time to connect with people in the community, as well as siblings, cousins and extended family members. A family reunion planned during this time would go over quite well! Gemini is an air sign and its energy does tend to feel a bit scattered. For some, there is a danger of becoming flaky and manipulative during this time.
Sunday (12/31): No major planetary aspects. The Moon goes Void-of-Course in Gemini beginning at 4:40pm MST.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to check back on New Years Eve for the weekday forecast, including the run-down on the big, beautiful Full Moon in Cancer! ☺
