A Christmas Full Moon will light up the holiday sky which is something that hasn’t happened since 1977!
Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s bringing quite the planetary mix along for the ride. He’ll have a ripe Christmas Full Moon lighting his path as he journeys ‘round the world this year. The full moon will peak on 12/25/15 at approximately 6:11 am EST/3:11 am PST/11:11 am GMT.
Many of us will agree that there’s always a magical feel in the air on Christmas. But this holiday might bring an extra dose of magic and maybe a little touch of madness or craziness too. Full moons ramp up energy after all!
This Christmas Full Moon might be especially so given that it’s taking place so close to the Capricorn Solstice (change of seasons). The last full moon of 2015 is going out with a bang.
Family will dominate the scene, given that the moon will be operating in Cancer. But it will be pulled by the Sun in Capricorn which runs a totally different feel. Capricorn is the traditional, serious and ambitious sign that likes to go out and be that successful over-achiever. Cancer is all about family and taking care of the needs of others. They are both driven signs – but make things happen in totally different ways.
The balancing act that will take place between these two very different signs—might create a push/pull between the needs of our families and our own personal ambitions/desires.
But there’s a little more happening alongside the Cancer (family)/Capricorn (accomplishments) balancing act. Quite a few impactful planetary combinations will be joining Santa in the festivities this year, creating another special twist.
On the positive, an extra dose of luck or something special could present itself, with both Venus and Mercury working nicely with Jupiter. These planets will be helping the abundance and feel good factor. However, wild card planet, Uranus will also be making a rather loud statement given that he’ll be stationing direct after a 5 month retrograde. A surprise or something unexpected just might present itself.
This is the Christmas to expect the unexpected.
Energy has been ramped up nearly all month long with all the intense planetary combinations in motion (see the December forecast for details). This Full Moon is the tipping point and one that comes with a push. Things that we’ve been stalling on may not be able to be pushed aside any longer.
With Uranus shaking things up, this is the point where many of us will decide to take a big step forward. Uranus likes change and desires to be free and that’s what he’s propelling us to do here.
If we decide to run from whatever it is that’s been holding us back, the universe may come into play to force us in the right direction. For possible hints, think back to what you were doing around July 26th. This was an important time in the year that began the karmic Venus retrograde period as well as Uranus’ retrograde.
We’ve come a long way since then and now it’s time to take things a little further.
The next Christmas Full Moon won’t take place will 2034! So make it a point to enjoy the magic, madness and unexpected twists that come along with this one.
Merry Christmas everyone!
