BLUE MOON ushers in New Year

Tonight’s Full Moon is very special, it is also a Lunar Eclipse and, as it is the second full moon in one month, that makes it a Blue Moon, which is very auspicious. (The peak of the Eclipse will be at 7:23pm in the UK).

This is the night to write down your Gratitude List for the past decade (meeting my wonderful husband is the highlight of mine) including the not so good stuff which helped us to grow and learn so much. Then write down your wishes and intentions for the year ahead and the next decade. Think and write carefully, as this triple auspicious Moon is very powerful.

If you are out and about tonight, take care, the revellers could be even more loopy than usual because of this Moon’s effect!

We are all ‘downloading’ some powerful Lunar energy with this moon phase (which will explain why some of you have been feeling so tired these past few days and have been having weird dreams).

Here is a selection of astrology to explain this further:-

The New Year begins with a soulful lunar eclipse that highlights the importance of work/life balance. Domestic dreams demand attention as you realise action is needed if you want to create your ideal home life this coming year. Venus aligns with theFull Moon helping you find balance and compromise with significant others. Mars retrograde suggests turning your attention inwards rather than moving forward. Explore your motivations and desires - you may be surprised by the homely truths illuminated under Full Moon. Use your new awareness to adjust future plans.

There's a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse coming up during the day on December 31. In Cancer/Capricorn, issues will be highlighted around your home, family and business. This is also likely to be a highly emotional time. At the end of the calendar year and beginning of a new one, tend to practical, third-dimensional matters, practice nurturing self-care, and notice what's happening on deep inner levels.
The tradition of creating New Year's resolutions is particularly powerful this year with the eclipse energies. Use this time to really feel into your heart. Find out what you need spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically to live a healthier, happier life in alignment with your soul. Make your intent clear and create ritual around that.
The matching bookend is a New Moon Solar Eclipse on January 14, 2010, also in Capricorn. Mercury will station the next day and begin traveling in "forward" motion again. This will be the time for us Earthlings to move forward in a big way, especially in business and day-to-day practical matters. Until then, relax, take your time and prepare for a stellar new year!

2009 ends with a bang, with a LUNAR ECLIPSE that's also December's second FULL MOON. It occurs today in the USA at 2:12 pm (10°14' Cancer). This eclipse is like a Full Moon on steroids, and, like all eclipses, its effects could last up to a year.
This one asks how "full-filled" you are in your home life, emotional expression and happiness. Other themes include transformation or release of relationships that are not promoting your personal evolution (Moon opposing Venus), and embracing those who do not seek to control you, but serve as positive catalysts (Moon opposing Pluto). In addition, the Moon-Saturn square asks who is holding the authority cards in your life. If they're not in your hand, they're going to be played by someone else!
