The Wheel is Turning

Greetings dear ones,

The season has turned and with it comes the rebirth of light. But let's not forget the journey that brought us to that moment at the Winter Solstice when the wheel of the year turned, the longest night passed, and we began our return toward the Summer Solstice and the festival of the Celtic sun king Lugh.  As it has only been a matter of days since the winter solstice, take a moment to reflect on what it is that you are creating at this time in your life, and light a candle for it. Set your intentions, and watch them soar in the early spring when the first seedlings begin to spout on Feb. 2nd or Candlemas, the celebration of art and beauty. My intention was for peace and love and I am seeing more and more of it in my life every day.

Expect Change: Uranus Goes Direct

When Uranus, the planet of revolutions and change, stations and begins forward movement again, you can expect the unexpected. Being the third and final planet to begin it's year end forward motion following on the heels of Pluto and Neptune, now also direct, there tends to be a feeling of resolution to events and issues that we have been processing since early summer. Next week Mercury will go retrograde again, giving us (another) opportunity to revisit communication issues and daily activities that tend to get muddled during Mercury's RX period until the end of December. Still, with Uranus moving direct today, look to see where it is in your natal chart and where there is forward movement in your life. If change visits you today, embrace it!
