WEEK 1

This is a "watery" week centered primarily on the Piscean energy which asks us to slow down and allow for any necessary healing, peace, restoration to occur. This is NOT the week to push. Do what is yours to do and not anything more. The energy will shift! Thursday kicks off Mercury finally going direct and hopefully no longer creating the ridiculous amount of havoc and mayhem that has been rampant the past few weeks. Has anyone else noticed how confrontational and cumbersome communication has been? The new moon brings fresh support to a small Sagittarius-related goal you may have. Take the following weeks to leverage your hard work for an even greater return in whatever house of your natal chart is affected. The end of the week and weekend is the ultimate time for rest and self care. Pamper yourself! (Especially in ways that benefit your physical body, e.g. Thai massage, facial, etc.)

WEEK 2

Finally, a breath of fresh air after an oddly emotional week which tested our resolve to remain in alignment with the new timeline we wish to experience and to not trap ourselves in patterns of the past. Did you find yourself wanting to revert to old patterns of behavior? Did you keep the vision alive in the midst of compulsion to fall back into what was comfortable and known? Or did you push ahead as the warrior you are? Mars' transit through Pisces and the dance between Jupiter in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces (which will dominate throughout 2019) asks us to check in with the Warrior archetype within. What Call are you answering? How noble are you in your deeds and in how you carry yourself? Are you still lacking direction, or have you finally accepted the cause (the Call) which you are to serve? Will you wear the crown of Soul Sovereignty? Will you brandish the Sword of Integrity and Truth? Will you hold the Shield of appropriate boundaries and steadfastness? Will you protect the Holy Grail of your Heart behind the Breastplate of the Lion King? Will you empower your individual Humanity with the Belt of Discipline? Will you walk surefooted as an embodiment of Peace? Questions that don't need answers, just space to exist..... 

WEEK 3

Are you getting used to the Sagittarius square Pisces energy yet? That balance between the drive to move forward boldly into the future and the question of WHERE to go? Get used to it because these considerations will remain at the forefront of our minds though all of 2019. That's a good thing. When you are in a transition period of leaving the old behind and establishing something new, this self-reflection is vital to ensure that what we create is truly in alignment with where we want to go. And if it's truly "new", you will necessarily have to handle things different. Your relationship to money and how you use it to create longterm wealth MUST change. Your relationship to your physical body and how you use preventative self care to create longterm health MUST change. Your relationship to romantic relationships and how your use it to create new experiences of inter-dependence and emotional intimacy MUST change. I encourage you to keep using all the fiery power of the planetary energy in Sagittarius (Sun, Mercury, Jupiter) to push through where you would normally have fears or doubts. The courageous Warrior archetype can help us all right now! The week ends powerfully with the mark of the Winter Solstice--signalling the coming rebirth of the Sun--and the Full Moon in Cancer. This time of year gives the closest access collectively to rewrite our subconscious and connect to our hearts. What dreams are you dreaming?

WEEK 4

Welcome to the final week of 2018 and the continuation of the powerful corridor of the Solstice energy. We start off with Mercury in a loose conjunction with Jupiter squaring Neptune. This is helping us to see how far we've come and what we've truly chosen over the past few months as it relates to what path we are choosing ahead. The clarity should start coming through about next steps! The end of the week and weekend is a great time to do some "final" clearing of energetic cords, attachments, agreements, etc with the Venus and Pluto aspect. You should find that you get an extra push and burst of courage to face any family "stuff", belief systems, or old habits in order to keep riding the fiery Sagittarius wave we've just come out of. It's going to be really important to also spend even more time in meditation because there will be some major downloads and inspiration as Mars comes back to its home sign of Aries where Uranus awaits. Don't let the distraction of the holiday season and New Year celebration make you miss what Spirit is trying to tell you!
