Current Moon Phase for Dec. 18th – Full Moon
A veil of self-absorption is lifted and suddenly you gain access to an unbiased view of others. This is a rare moment when you can see yourself objectively and become aware of whether or not what you want in your heart is actually beginning to manifest in your life. Traditionally, the Full Moon phase stirs emotion, and this is because when you “see” what is happening, you may become upset if you’re experiencing the “same ole, same ole” — rather than the things you would like. If the Full Moon phase is a disappointment, on the next New Moon it’s time to take creative action in the direction of your dreams.

Wednesday 18th December 2013 - Moon in Cancer
It's impossible to prepare for unexpected mayhem .... except....
You might think SQUARES and OPPOSITIONS are awful and bad - the truth is astrological SQUARES and OPPOSITIONS are normal - in fact when all the planets are in their natural houses Moon in Cancer always squares Mars in Aries [Mars natural home is Aries] - so the fact that Moon in Cancer squares Mars in Libra today - means the square is natural - but it's now switched sides. And without "oppositions" the magnetic powerful energies created by "opposites" would never make anything happen in life. So "opposites" are normal too.
The problem comes when STUBBORN and SELFISH people only see life from their perspective - and when things don't go according to whatever "they" want to happen. Destiny is in the process of preparing the whole world for huge karmic events - and today's powerful emotions - are just the beginning to see what's about to unfold. Whatever "it" is will be defined as SURPRISES and SHOCKS - the actual events are still "hidden" - even though many of you will have a good idea of the goodness that's coming - as you sense the "karmic" energies in your aura.
The only way to prepare for karmic events is to ACCEPT everything in your life as a blessing - even the problems - and ACCEPT the karmic events - that's life. For the truth is you can't do anything else - because if you do - it will only create negativity. People who REFUSE to accept - always begin by getting ANGRY - then they turn VIOLENT - then they ATTACK and DESTROY. You might say it's a human flaw - but when the catastrophic Nuclear war eventually happens - you will realize that it all started because people couldn't ACCEPT or AGREE with each other - so they turned to become ANGRY which leads to WAR and DESTRUCTION. It's happening and being prepared by "karmic destiny" as I write this - and no-one seems to care - so I can't see why people will be shocked and surprised when it finally happens. [FYI it's not going to happen today - I'm just giving an example of what BAD negativity can do to some humans - who are just like animals but with worse weapons capable of destructive mayhem]. Sadly, "they" can't see that it's all "self-destructive" - as "they" are doing it to themselves - that too is karmic.
Hence on a personal level - if you can't AGREE with someone - and if you can't live in PEACE and HARMONY - there's no point creating any negativity nor arguments - nor turning destructive or violent - simply SAY NOTHING - disconnect and accept the situation. Define that it's karmic and destiny is giving you a SIGN to DETACH from them. Because "destiny" has a much better karmic alternative that it's planning for you very soon.
If you ACCEPT everything that you see and simply SAY NOTHING with complete faith and acceptance - then you'll actually serenely ENJOY Moon in Cancer - for Moon in Cancer is the BEST PLACE for the Moon to be - and you should sense that IF and ONLY IF you don't argue with anyone and don't get SAY ANYTHING to anyone who just wants to pick-a-fight with you.
Moon 5° Cancer squares Mars 5° Libra this is the aspect that will create ARGUMENTS - words that will lead to "trouble" - as soon as you see WHO is trying to pick-a-fight with you - note that you NEED to disconnect and SAY NOTHING. Moon square Mars is a sign "they" are BAD for you.
Moon 8° Cancer squares Uranus 8° Aries unexpectedly, suddenly, shocking and surprising - all in one - but it's necessary in order to readjust your life - to get you on the RIGHT DESTINED pathway - especially as Uranus has just gone direct in Aries - it's now time to DUMP the past and EMBRACE the future. It's far easier to KISS and LOVE the "future" - instead of having a futile argument with the ex of the "Past". Anyone who picks-a-fight with you today is about to be an "ex" - anyone who unexpectedly positively surprises you today is the LOVE of your "future".
Moon 10° Cancer opposes Pluto 10° Capricorn this is the aspect that makes predicting predictable - as it creates a CHANGE IN YOUR MIND - a deep rooted inexplicable feeling - makes you change your mind and as you do - it creates CLARITY - for it just feels really RIGHT.
After the Moon passes 10° Cancer technically it should then become good for most people - especially if you've listened to the advice. If you haven't and you've got involved in NEGATIVITY - which started with an argument - then you have yourself to blame for the mess you're in - you are predictably predictable - and you should know better - as I'm explaining this in advance to WARN YOU - DO NOT ARGUE with ANYONE. Keep shtum and say NOTHING - as nothing good will come from arguing with someone who isn't destined to be in your life anymore.
It is for this reason that Ester never replies to people picking-a-fight - she simply "deletes" them - for there's no point in replying to some very hateful people - I guess "they" fight with all the people in their lives - that's the energy of who they are - and what leads to "wars". Isn't it ironic that all the countries with Nuclear capabilities are the karmic countries with the worst violence, hatred, arrogance and bad manners in the world!
Our emotions may go unexpressed today, but a lack of communication doesn’t reflect a lack of intensity. The hypersensitive Cancer Moon motivates us to care for loved ones, even if it means shielding them from the truth. Meanwhile, cerebral Mercury forms a creative alignment with fuzzy Neptune, making it hard to know exactly what to say. Unfortunately, being overprotective isn’t the smartest strategy to aid in someone else’s personal growth.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You’re ready to make something happen, but acting in an aggressive manner isn’t such a wise idea today. Rather than rushing into a new project or activity, allow some time to assimilate what has already transpired over the past few days. Even if you want to demonstrate how responsible you are, charging ahead won’t deliver the message of maturity you wish to send. Paradoxically, you can make your point and accomplish more now by slowing down and doing less.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You may be so sensitive now to what others say that a good friend could rub you the wrong way with a casual remark. Although the comments might actually be directed toward someone else, it still feels as if you’re the one that’s actually being criticized. Over-personalizing what you hear leads to a misinterpretation of the facts. Taking a more laid-back approach to personal interactions allows you to avoid unnecessary problems.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You begin to feel relief as your extreme mood swings settle down. Although yesterday's Full Moon was in your sign, today's nurturing Cancer Moon could soothe your heightened emotions. Thankfully, you can choose to concentrate your energy instead of scattering it. If someone needs a bit of special tender loving care, step up to the plate and demonstrate your willingness to be there for those you love.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Today's events may stir up memories from your childhood that evoke strong feelings, since the emotional Cancer Moon is at her height of power. You could be nostalgic at first, but your longing transforms into much-needed clarity about a pressing issue. Nevertheless, it's dangerous to assume that your processing is over, for your moods may continue shifting through tomorrow. Be gentle with yourself while traveling on your sentimental journey.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Hiding your emotions gives you enough space and time to consider your reactions without also feeling like you must share them with everyone else. However, the self-contained Cancer Moon’s presence in your 12th House of Secrets indicates that your imagination is more active today than is apparent to others. It’s not necessary to express everything you’re thinking until you are ready to deal with the consequences of what you say. Exploring your dreams is a wonderful way to get in touch with your heart.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You tend to over-analyze everything you want to say today because you’re concerned about what everyone might think. You believe it’s safer to be discreet than to agitate others with something they don’t really need to know. Nevertheless, a conversation could lead you to disclose more than you intend. If so, remember that it’s better to be honest than to cover your tracks with half-truths and innuendos. Speaking with integrity is your best course of action because your real friends expect you to be sincere no matter what.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You may have mixed feelings about helping someone less fortunate today. You might resist at first, relying on logic to give reasons why you cannot jump in as requested. Maintaining a sense of humor can be crucial to offering what is needed now, for a good laugh enables you to dissipate the tension while also doing the right thing. Thankfully, you’re able to follow through with useful assistance in the nick of time; be the friend you want to have.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You’re experiencing uncertainty about an upcoming business trip or vacation as the tentative Cancer Moon visits your 9th House of Travel. You might try to gloss over important details today because you don’t want to cancel a fun adventure. It’s challenging now to keep everything clear so you don’t end up somewhere lost and far from home. Go ahead and continue making your plans, but scale back your expectations to be on the safe side. Trust your instincts to be your guide.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You might not have an outlet to express the emotional intensity you are feeling today. The needy Cancer Moon can be unsettling as she moves through your 8th House of Deep Sharing, stirring your passions. The problem is that patience doesn’t come naturally for you Archers, making it tough to slow down enough now to see where your feelings take you. However, if you ignore your emotions, they’ll just resurface stronger and be even more difficult to handle the next time around. Confiding in someone you trust may be all you need at this time.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You might not be able to avoid a friend or acquaintance who asks for help in solving an emotional problem today, even if you would prefer to sidestep this potentially complex situation. But your natural assumption that you need to fix anything is not true. Instead of taking over, encourage others to talk and then show your support just by listening. You don’t have to do anything except receive what’s being said with an open mind and a compassionate heart.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Although you might wish you could take the day off and even lose yourself in a movie or a book, there's just too much to do now. Unfortunately, your responsibilities may restrict your freedom and stand in the way of your happiness. Don't fight the inevitable today; show up and do what's required. Thankfully, you should be able to find some time later in the day for a well-earned escape -- and it will be more enjoyable if your work is already done.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You may be willing to wait patiently today for something you want because you believe there’s a better chance of finding satisfaction once you can see the whole picture. But the current dynamics aren’t about denying your desire for pleasure; it’s more to do with realizing your dreams. Impulsively taking action could create more problems than good times. Being cautious is wise as long as you don’t let any significant opportunities slip through your fingers in the process.
Today’s Tarot Card: Justice
Traditionally, what has been known as the Justice card has to do with moral sensitivity and that which gives rise to empathy, compassion and a sense of fairness. Since the time of Solomon, this image has represented a standard for the humane and fair-minded treatment of other beings.
Often including the image of a fulcrum which helps to balance competing needs against the greater good, and a two-edged sword to symbolize the precision needed to make clear judgments, this card reminds us to be careful to attend to important details. It’s a mistake to overlook or minimize anything where this card is concerned. The law of Karma is represented here — what goes around comes around.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram: 18: Repairing What is Spoiled
Something is starting to rot and it is time to repair the damage. In the world of human affairs, indulgence and corruption grow like weeds in an untended garden; they must be faced squarely, and rooted out through bold action. Eliminating corruption — and the sloppiness that leads to it — is one of the most ennobling of all human enterprises. Correction of flaws in the system clears the way for fresh, new beginnings.
The time has come to become lean and efficient. The weeds must be rooted out now, before the garden is overwhelmed. Fighting decay, sloppiness and corrupt agendas is not a simple matter; all steps must be evaluated carefully. Planning must precede action. Resist the temptation to strike out prematurely. Gather strength behind you, and summon your inner resources, because arresting decay is no simple task. When you do act, make your strike as precise and clean as the path of the surgeon’s knife.

That Which is Behind You
Ant is dutiful, patient, industrious and focused. If you ever put an obstacle in the middle of an ant trail, you’ll notice that ant will go over it, around it, or even under it—but ant will NOT let the obstacle drive him backwards. Above all, ant is a team player, and knows that if each member of the team does his assigned task, the team will succeed. Do you have goals that are best met by team effort? If so, get the other players off the bench and let them into your game.
Your Current Place
Bat’s internal radar is exceptionally attuned—is yours?

For every death there is a rebirth and Bat is here to help you decide what goes and what stays.

Taking yourself too seriously? If you are, Coyote will throw a banana peel in your tracks just to see you take a silly spill.
