Happy Full Moon!

“The last full moon of 2019 will fall on Dec. 12 (12:12 a.m. ET). This is a prime time to envision new realms of possibility in matters of love and money, and to let your heart speak louder than your head. Followed by the winter solstice on Dec. 21, and a solar eclipse on Dec. 25, the Dec. 12 full moon heralds change, and possibly a new, more fulfilling phase of your life’s journey.

In Vedic astrology, this full moon falls in the area of the sky known as Mrigashira (Mriga means deer, and shira means head). Symbolized by the energy of a wild stag, Mrigashira is called the searching star, as it continuously seeks out what nourishes the heart and gives it a sense of belonging. As a deer seeks out its flock, this full moon desires meaningful connection with others.

In the Northern Hemisphere, winter is encroaching and daylight is dying away. The solstice is just around the corner, when the power of darkness reaches its annual climax. This bright full moon will shine through one of the longest nights of the year, illuminating the darkest corners of the psyche with piercing clarity and insight. Use this time to ask your heart what it truly wants, and don’t be surprised if the answer is different than what you’d thought.
On Christmas in the U.S (Dec. 25), a total solar eclipse will form as the liberating tail of the karmic snake, Ketu, shadows the sun, moon, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mercury. This will create a powerful pile-up of energy with tremendous momentum. Avoid political discussions and other contentious issues at holiday parties or family gatherings, as this formation could stir up some unnecessary conflict.

Eclipses are known to plant seeds that later bloom into breakthroughs, surprising outcomes, and even shocking events, especially in the weeks that surround them. Once you’ve tuned into your heart’s desires around the full moon, use the solar eclipse that follows it to surrender them to the universe. Intention-setting is key, but surrender is the final and critical step to manifesting your desires.

On this full moon, imagine where you’d like to be in 2020. Are you ready for a new relationship? Or a new professional challenge? How about more financial abundance? The wild stag energy of Mrigashira will stoke the fires of your heart, igniting its hidden desires. If you’re ready to lead with your heart, not your mind, you could find true fulfillment.”
