The practice of doing nothing is actually doing something for yourself as we navigate through December, the final month of 2021. On December 3rd/4th depending on where you live, we will all experience the final total solar eclipse of 2021. I have shared before the significance of this event on a global scale. This is an opportunity to wipe the mental slate clean and realize there is so much more to life than To-Do lists. As we enter the holiday season, whichever holiday you celebrate allow yourself time for reflection and review.
December 1st Neptune Goes Direct
After a five-month journey doing its retrograde dance in the celestial realms, Neptune will turn direct in its home sign of Pisces. Neptune represents dreams, illusion, deception, magick, psychic receptivity, and how we use spirituality to better ourselves. Going direct just prior to the New Moon Solar Eclipse will impact how we navigate through our own emotional waters. With forward momentum we receive new inspiration, hope and renewed faith.
December 4th – New Moon Total Solar Eclipse
This eclipse is an invitation to consciously let go and bring honor to the things that are coming to an end in our lives. Endings are such an important part of the life cycle because with endings comes new beginnings. We are gifted with a tremendous amount of astrological support to deeply look into what needs to be purged, released, forgiven, and transformed so that we can move into the solstice and the new year with the space for new inspiration, creativity, and joy. Focus on what you want to expand and grow in your life during this time. When you set intentions during a total solar eclipse, we are able to do a deep dive within our soul story as we invite the Black Jaguar into our sacred space. We surrender and begin to trust divine timing, the synchronistic meetings with strangers and the signs we are given. We create a greater alignment with the natural order of the universe. Something changes in a person, and often the person no longer wants to put the energy he/she once did into being in the ego. Since the ego is in a constant state of action being who you are, it will fall away if you stop giving it energy. When you stop trying to be who you think you are, you become all you were born to be. I wanted to share a special guided meditation with our entire spiritual community for this significant moment to work with the energy of the Black Jaguar. Click Here
December 18th/19th Full Moon in Gemini, Venus goes direct, and Chiron goes direct
Prepare for a powerful surge of energy and a sequence of events that return us to the heart. The eclipse gateway is still open, and with the Gemini Full Moon the lunation can shower us with love. Gemini will support us in balancing the mind and heart. Gemini is the sign of the storyteller. This full moon will be illuminating the stories that we have been telling ourselves that have been holding us back or subjecting us into roles that we have outgrown or never quite fit in to begin with. The most prominent alignment that takes place at the time of the exact full moon is Chiron, the Wounded Healer, square Mercury, the God of Storytelling. A square in astrology represents a battle or conflict. Although this alignment represents tense energy, Chiron and Mercury are actually working together and are presenting an opportunity for us to shine a light into the shadow sides of our own thinking, beliefs, and stories. When these shadows become illuminated deep healing can occur. This Full Moon will illuminate the negative dialogue that plays into our awareness reinforcing our self-doubts and fears creating an imbalance in the mind. The final full moon of 2021 is dedicated to the beautiful Peacock who is a messenger of dreaming all that you can be without self-imposed limitations. Peacock reminds us to trust in divine timing and allow the universe to do its magick as we prepare to creatively construct the newly upgraded version of us. We each have gifts and talents to share with the world and peacock reminds us dare to be different, let your colors emanate out in the world and observe life through the lens of the heart. For those who are members of our online Moon Cycle and Sacred Sabbat subscription series I will be adding both a guided meditation and a ritual to work with the Peacock gifts available to each of us as we celebrate the final Full Moon of 2021.

For those who would like to work deeper with the peacock, the animal ally of the Goddess Kuan Yin, I will be carrying peacock feathers into the Dragon’s Teeth Labyrinth at the time of the Full Moon on Maui to bless in sacred ceremony as I invoke the goddess essence and the spirit of the peacock. The feather of a peacock reminds us of the power of Kuan Yin to restore peace and balance into our lives wherever we need it. It is a symbol of self-discovery. If you are finding it hard to discover who you are, the feather of the peacock will help you on the journey of discovery to find your path and commit to it. It is a symbol of discipline to lead your own life. A sacred tool to remind you to stop allowing your life to be ruled by others, to live your life how you were always intended to live it. A feather of courage. The beautiful colors of the feather of a peacock reveal the creativity of the divine and the intelligence of the creator. In the same way, when the feather of the peacock comes to you, the creative power in the feather will begin to affect your life in a positive way. The peacock feather will assist you in discovering your purpose and achieving everything you desire. I will sit with the feather and bring forth a message from the Goddess to guide your journey.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to ship to Australia and New Zealand due to the huge increase in shipping to these areas.
December 19 Venus goes retrograde.
An opportunity to redirect how we embrace life by seeing things through the lens of the heart. It’s time to prioritize what’s truly important in your life. We deserve strong, healthy, supportive, loving, and committed relationships, but we must first create that relationship with ourselves. Entering a year of unconditional love when the wheel turns at the time of the Winter Solstice, this Venus retrograde will highlight how you treat yourself and how you speak to yourself as it will be reflected back in all your relationships. Venus will be a cosmic mirror reflecting back to you what you need to change as you observe your interactions with others. This Venus retrograde is going to be particularly powerful because she will be aligning with Pluto three times during her retrograde journey. Pluto is the planet that represents the underworld, deep transformation, death and rebirth. Venus governs values, love, relationships, balance, abundance, self-worth, and self-love. When Venus is retrograde, she is inviting us to look into what we value and prioritize in our lives. Are we giving all of our time and attention to others, our jobs, etc. at the expense of ourselves? Do we consider self-care a priority? Do we value our gifts and what we have to offer? Pluto being a significant part of this Venus retrograde cycle implores us to dig deeper to uncover the answers to these questions because when we do, we get to the core truth of our beliefs and any false beliefs can be released. Venus will be retrograde from December 19, 2021 until January 29, 2022.
December 19th Chiron goes direct
Chiron, the master/healer/teacher, stations direct in Aries after an emotionally challenging five-month journey retrograde. Chiron represents our greatest core wound, and Aries is the fiery power of our mental body. While retrograde, Chiron activated core wounding. Only when we shine a light on the pain, do we have a chance to transmute that memory into the frequency of love, changing our soul story and returning joy and new life to awaken us to our full potential. Chiron is the catalyst for growth, and now is the time to integrate healing and move forward in a new direction. The ritual for the Final Full Moon can assist in bringing a deeper understanding as to the healing of those core wounds and how the total solar eclipse will impact us personally in the months unfolding in 2022.
December 21st Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere
The Solstice is a time where the veil between dimensions is thin. Between our world and the spirit world, there is something known as liminal space. The word liminal stems from the Latin “limen,” meaning “threshold.” Liminal space denotes a time and space between the physical world and the spirit world. It is also a time where we are more open and connected with the energies of the Earth. The Solstice is the start of a new season depending on where in the world you live, and a new season always brings a transition of energy. The December Solstice was chosen for this day as it was said to signify a “return to the light.” For those who follow the Path of the Rose this is the turning of the wheel into the Year 2022.

December 22nd Summer Solstice in the southern hemisphere
In the Southern Hemisphere it is the summer solstice and we experience the longest day of the year. The word solstice means “sun standing still” and is one of the most powerful times for each us to create the space of stillness within our heart. Far removed from the distractions of the outside world and the chaotic energies of the multitude of thought forms of fear, doubt, scarcity and lack that surround us. The illusions created by the Surface Walker in our mind. This is the turning of the wheel as we transition into a new decade and a new year. Ritual has been posted click here
As the final turning of wheel in 2021 you will feel a higher power stirs from within, bringing us greater awareness of our spiritual abilities and gifts. Just as the serpent sheds its skin to reveal itself anew, we too are shedding old habits, patterns of behavior, and thoughts, birthing a new expression of ourselves. As we step into 2022, we need to ground in greater awareness of our gifts, powers, and unique spiritual capabilities. The Universe is ready and so are you. Don’t underestimate yourself. Realize what you are capable of and step into your full power.
December 22, 2021
The day after the Winter Solstice, the North Node and the South Node will switch zodiac signs. The North Node represents our path of destiny, the way forward. The South Node represents the karmic past, the comfort zone that we have outgrown and is now holding us back. With that said, the North and South Node stay in one sign for about 18 months and have been in Gemini and Sagittarius since June 2020. When the nodes move signs, it represents a shift in energy and focus that the collective will experience. The North Node will be shifting into Taurus and the South Node will be shifting into Scorpio. With this shift, the North Node is highlighting the way forward through self-care, self-love, self-worth, radical self-acceptance, honoring your own body as well as Mother Earth’s, and listening to your intuition and own internal rhythm. The South Node is highlighting the need to be aware of power dynamics (are we giving our power away or are we lording it over others? Are we being driven by fear? Are we caught up in black and white, all or nothing thinking and not allowing space for paradoxes to exist?) Asking questions like these and unearthing the answers will be the focus while the Nodes are in these two signs until 2023. As a note, if you know what signs your North Node and South Node are in your birth chart, it can give deeper insight into how this nodal shift is influencing you as well as what you’re releasing in order to move forward on your path of destiny.
Use December as a month to
- Let go of judgment and dive deep into the healing of core wounds Chiron brought into your awareness.
- Create a vision board that holds your dreams for 2022
- Celebrate and honor the seasons of change
- Rest and reflect while you integrate your experiences from 2021
- Let go of blame and victim consciousness, it will not serve you in 2022
I will be sharing in more detail the potential 2022 will offer in a separate email.
