It is a time of intense energies as waves of light are washing over Gaia from the sun, from star being friends, from portals and star gates activating both from within and with-out. These energies are illuminating shadow places inside of us as a collective and individually. For those of you who are sensitive and awake to energy, you can probably feel it quite intensely and acutely in your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Being with the responses that come up in a self-loving way and holding space for yourself during the transition allows for a smoother ride through it.
These waves of light are calibrators to raise our frequency, to boost the vibration of Gaia as She continues to move from the denser vibrations of 3D consciousness into fourth and eventually fifth. Many lightworkers, gridworkers, psychics, healers, teachers are feeling this as an intense time of energy surges and calibrations and I join them in feeling this as a particularly intense time of energy shifts.
Experiencing body symptoms is common as our bodies vibrate faster and faster, turning from carbon-based to crystalline. DNA strands are activating and repairing without us having to ‘do’ anything for this to happen. The light that is available is doing it for us although if you ask for it and want it, this accelerates the process. DNA getting switched on feels like a tingly at times in the scalp and at times is downright painful with surges of pain around the crown chakra and down the neck and spine. A throbbing forehead or third eye is common too, which I have experienced several times now. Offer yourself what you know works for you in terms of easing and integrating these new energies and seek out those who can serve you in a loving way through this transition.
Sleeping well and hard feels so important as the mind and the 3D self shut down to let the 4D transitional, awakening self and the 5D higher self step in. Wanting and needing a lot of sleep is a good thing as everything recharges. Not being able to sleep or interrupted sleep patterns is also common. The awakening 4D self has dark and light, the contrasts and polarities and dualities are being pushed up to be felt. It mostly exists in the astral or etheric realm although for those of you who have been consciously bringing it forward through connecting with aspects of yourselves, you ARE it most of the time. And the higher self or 5D self is becoming embodied as well, more and more higher frequencies of light living in the body, walking around as the higher self and integrating guides from the ‘outside’ to the inside. Holding space for yourself includes checking in with aspects of yourself and how they are feeling and digesting these changes.
Starting a journaling dialogue with your 3D, 4D and higher self can be very illuminating. You can start by writing a letter to each of them (based on your experience of each) and then listen for a response back, writing down whatever you hear. You can then engage in a question and answer type dialogue written down or out loud. Stay in your heart as you engage with these aspects of yourself, maintaining a curious and loving energy toward them. Let the feelings of these aspects (especially the 3D and 4D selves) come back to be felt and held by you. You will be amazed how much this can help with the transition.
Shadow is coming to light. Shadow is oozing out at times, bursting out in emotional upheavals. It is a time of unveiling which it feels like will continue hugely in 2017. It is a time of decision making and changing life circumstances, feeling deeper desires and soul claims bubbling up to be integrated. There is a sense of there being ‘no time to lose’ and more sense that time is an illusion and very urgent at the same ‘time’. Our bodies are changing, our hearts are opening up, our souls are embodying and ALL of it is held within Infinite Love. Holding this process with a sense of being loved during it can allow it to flow so much more easily and deeply.
All these changes and transitions are held by and orchestrated by and made BY LOVE FOR LOVE WITH LOVE. You are being invited to feel increasing trust in this through the visceral experience of these changes in the deepest cells of your ever changing body, in the opening of your healing heart and ache for intimacy and authenticity, and in the expansion of your soul and the embodiment of your higher self through integration of soul fragments and aspects of yourself existing in many dimensions and eras.

You are an amazing being of infinite potential, and this New Moon is going to help you bring this energy to the surface.
The December New Moon falls in the earthy, wise and grounded sign of Capricorn on the 29th, which also happens to be my birthday!
This New Moon is peaceful and gentle and will be helping all of us to reflect on our goals for the year ahead and what type of energy we want to take with us into the new year.
Under the calming influence of this New Moon we will also be guided to plant our first seed for 2017, in soil that we have so diligently been preparing for a very long time.
Leading up to this New Moon we will all be feeling introspective and reflective about what we have achieved this year and just how far we have travelled. After the New Moon however, we are going to feel a glimmer of energy pushing us forward.
In fact, this New Moon is going to be pushing us to focus on our highest dreams and wishes for ourselves. We are also going to be feeling a strong push of energy that will be urging us to step up and take responsibility for ourselves and for our lives.
We may not be in control of everything that comes our way, but we sure are in control of how we handle everything that comes our way. We are co-creators in this Universe and this New Moon is going to be a strong reminder of that.
This would be the perfect time to start conjuring up new and exciting creations for 2017 as this New Moon will definitely be supporting you to do so.
This New Moon also falls at the same time as Mercury Retrograde. This combination of energy is likely to bring up new information to the surface or new facts that need to be addressed. Secrets may be revealed or you may uncover a hidden truth.
Truth is an interesting thing. What is true today may not be true tomorrow, which means that truth is really not something we can hold to or cling to. We have to allow truth to rise up in each moment and just the same, we have to be true to ourselves in each moment.
Think of this like the wise old Wizard who will pay you a visit on the night of the New Moon. The Wizard won’t say a word, instead he will point its staff on the path in front of you, illuminating everything that you have not been able to see just yet. This illumination will change how you see things, which will ultimately change your truth.
Many people have felt the crashing down of illusions or outdated structures this year, and now under the energy of this New Moon we are going to be given time to think about how we are going to rebuild for the future.
Capricorn energy is very practical, earthy and grounded but it also reflects and represents the energy that we put out into the world. Capricorn energy is about our outward expression and about taking responsibility for what energy we choose to co-create with.
Under the darkness of this New Moon, now would be the perfect time to start recharging your co-creator energy and cleansing away any negative or psychic debris that you have collected throughout the year. If you want a fresh start, this New Moon is going to grant you that.
This New Moon is also laced with the energy of love. Love and relationships are going to be highlighted around this New Moon and relationships may be a theme. This doesn’t just include romantic relationships but all relationships that we have with other people.
The time has come for us to really think about who we are surrounding ourselves with and who we want to continue to walk alongside on our journey.
Under this New Moon, weak relationships may be tested and you may find that some of the final releasing for this year is from relationships that are no longer serve your highest good.
Neptune, the planet of spirituality, higher consciousness and unconditional love will also be active around the time of this New Moon and will be shining its light on all of us.
This is the perfect time to go within and reconnect with that inner flame or that inner spark of magic that we all have inside.
Magical energy will be strong on this New Moon, so listen and trust your instincts and intuition. The more you tune into your intuitive self, the easier and more fluid your life will become.
Overall, December’s New Moon is very gentle and will be a soft and reflective reminder of just how far we have come and just how exciting the future is.
We have all been working so hard in 2016 and now it is time to plant the first seed in new soil.
This seed is going to be our first bloom for 2017 and it is going to smell sweeter, beam brighter and light up our entire pathway for the year ahead.

The New Moon on Thursday 29 December 2016 is at 8 degrees Capricorn. The New Moon December 2016 astrology is excellent for making your dreams come true. The December 29 New Moon will and inspire you with passion, romance and motivation. If you lack direction it will be your dream catcher.
New Moon December 2016 makes no fewer than ten planetary aspects with some fixed star conjunctions too. This makes for endless opportunities and possibilities but the general theme is definitely positive. Good fortune and lasting happiness can be found by taking the spiritual high road to reach your dreams.
The influence of a New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the next New Moon, in this case the January 27 New Moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of a New Moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from December 29 to the January 12 Full Moon.
This New Moon seems straightforward enough to interpret. A New Moon with Mercury means communication and transport will be the major themes for the next 28 days. Looking closer at the New Moon December 2016 astrology chart below shows Mercury in retrograde motion. Great, so you can expect recent communication and transport problems to get worse and stay around for longer.
The story gets more detailed with the December 29 New Moon sextile Mars and Neptune. While still sounding basic with just the sextile aspect showing in the chart, the New Moon and Mercury sextile Mars and Neptune actually includes ten aspects. Then there are some major fixed stars to consider plus that signficant looking configuration involving Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. As usual, I will start with what I consider to be the most important influences on the New Moon and drill down from there.
New Moon conjunct Mercury puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making this a very busy time mentally. What you say and how you say it becomes more important. Your words carry more weight, they have greater meaning and influence. Your mind will be more active than usual which favors lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, and receiving and sending letters and emails.
You may notice more interaction with people in your neighborhood and have more short trips around town. You may seek mental stimulation through social media and internet forums, news and documentaries on TV, radio, news papers and magazines. The news, media and journalism may themselves become news stories. This is also possible with other communication and transport systems and technology.
Mercury retrograde brings communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. Any focus on news and transport is now likely to be about misinformation, accidents and delays. There is a feel of a difficult Mercury-Saturn aspect about Mercury retrograde, so you can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past.
This particular Mercury retrograde phase is extreme and intense because Mercury stationed retrograde conjunct Pluto. This is ideal for deep research and uncovering secrets. For those interested in astrology or psychology, this should be a time of deep self-analysis and discovery. News stories about the news itself will now involve propaganda and hacking. Negotiations between states will be more protracted or be suspended.
To summarise so far with a Mercury retrograde New Moon, this should be a four-week period of reflection, contemplation and discussion. This is a good New Moon for thinking about how your thoughts affect your attitudes and moods. Thoughts are powerful things, the have energy and manifest around you as words and even actions. Prayer and positive thinking can make a real big difference to your life.
Then you can think about how your thoughts, attitudes and words affect the people around you. Do you need to make more effort so that your messages are clearly understood? Do you really listen or turn off? Do you give enough compliments and encouragement to your loved ones? Just as positive thinking can make a big difference to your life, so too can positive reinforcement make a big difference to the life of someone you care about.
Due to the Precession of the Equinoxes, the Sagittarius Constellation now sits wholly in the Capricorn Sign. This is due to a fatal error in the construction our Zodiac over 2000 years ago. This is why I do not use Sun Signs for astrological interpretation but instead look to the Fixed Stars. Originally, our Zodiac:
was a convenient celestial measuring device, unrelated to astrological activity…it was being used at that time for the recording of astronomical data, yet observation of the effects of the planets for astrological purposes continued to be related to the visible constellations. [ Heavenly Imprints, Deborah Houlding]
The New Moon December 2016 astrology is influenced by two very different fixed stars in Sagittarius Constellation. Generally, this is a fortunate and fruitful Constellation indicating events pertaining to kings or a large portion of humanity.
Behind Mercury retrograde at 6°32′ Capricorn Sign is a yellow star on top of the Archer’s bow called Kaus Borealis. It has your typical Sagittarius/Ninth House/Jupiter nature. It stimulates mental activity and gives strength and flexibility when debating. It promotes a sense of justice with idealistic and humane ideas.
Ahead of the New Moon at 8°31′ Capricorn Sign is a nebula in the Face of the Archer called Facies. Keywords for this Pluto-like star include driven, focused, prolific, productive, profound, influential, weak eyesight, powerful insight, in your face, brave, tell it how it is, gritty and dark.
Adding fixed stars to the Mercury retrograde New Moon allows for a much deeper and more meaningful assessment of your thought patterns and communication style. Fixed star Facies provides insights from the darkest recesses of your mind. However, it can cause dangerous thoughts and make your words very direct and sometimes hurtful.
Fixed star Kaus Borealis turns your darkest thoughts into morally and culturally acceptable attitudes and ideas. While also adding great force behind your reasoning, it brings a flexibility to your thinking that softens any hard-line stances.
It will be interesting to see how this influence plays out in global disputes and negotiations over peace and the human rights of refugees. Hopefully the idealism of Kaus Borealis will quiten the threats of war from Facies.
The next major influence shown in New Moon December 2016 astrology chart above is the sextile to Mars and Neptune. Mars with Neptune on its own can be good or bad. In this case it is on a fortunate fixed star with the friendly aspects, so it is going to behave nicely.
Mars conjunct Neptune will therefore make your feel romantic and sensual. You should enjoy this spiritual trip with more energy and enthusiasm to chase your dreams and goals. Love relationship will benefit from your magic touch, while dating will benefit from your sexual magnetism and charismatic appeal. You can confidently pour your energy into things you care about like charities or human rights work. You can heal the sick with your positive energy.
Fixed star Skat at 9°06′ Pisces gives good fortune and lasting happiness. It is also called “The Wish” but only grants your hopes and desires if you have worked hard to deserve them. I won’t list the six aspects involved in the sextile between the Mercury New Moon and the Mars Neptune conjunction but give a brief summary of the combined influence.
The sextile aspect is energetic and expressive, so acts like a good combination of Mercury and Mars. It makes both the Mars Neptune conjunction and the Mercury New Moon alignment manifest their best qualities and work together for your benefit. If everything in your life is running perfectly then it should feel like you are living out your dreams.
For everyone else it will help you get closer to your most passionate desires. If you are unsure what you want in life it will act like a dream catcher and inspire you with passion and motivation. Your feelings, intentions, thoughts and actions will all be focused on working out how to reach your goals. The planets, fixed stars and aspects all combine to make you incredibly focused and driven to explore every possible avenue to make your dreams come true.
It will be best to focus on one particular goal, something you feel passionately about with no doubts in your mind. Your dream does not have to be so personal but could be furthering a particular cause. This could involve helping others through charity work or fighting for the rights of the disadvantaged.
Mars conjunct Neptune makes a mean spiritual warrior. The New Moon December 2016 astrology suggests a victory in spiritual warfare. The winner being the side with the most enlightened or morally just belief system. I’m sure this means a major defeat for Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria.
Victories will also be possible in human rights, environment causes, social justice and animal welfare. At the most personal level this New Moon is perfect for battling and defeating your inner demons and any negative spiritual entities in your environment. Addictions and other bad habits will be easier to conquer. You can be the master of your own desires.
It will be easier to put your plans into action after Mercury turns direct on January 8, 2017. I would leave it as close to possible, but before the January 12 Full Moon to make final decisions or sign documents.
The combined effect of the right angled triangle involving Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus will throw up some surprising opportunities for you to take advantage of. Jupiter opposite Uranus will make some seem way too crazy to even consider. Jupiter sextile Saturn gives the common sense and sound judgement skills to make the right choice.
Saturn trine Uranus makes New Moon December 2016 the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic as it sometimes can. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically.
