Friday, Dec. 23: The new moon in Capricorn occurs at 5:16 this morning. With Chiron having turned from retrograde to direct less than an hour earlier. It’s a powerful day and month where building bridges can change the course of your life for keeps. It was Dec. 23, 2007, that the great jazz pianist Oscar Peterson died from kidney failure.
Saturday, Dec. 24: The moon is still in Capricorn and today connects with Mercury, Venus and Pluto so it is like day two of the new moon. Only, in addition to Chiron turning direct and Jupiter opening doors, now we have the added energy of clever, charming and spiritual drive to help. Happy birthday number 82 to Anthony Fauci, head immunologist for the U.S. during the AIDS and COVID crises.
Sunday, Dec. 25: And a Merry Christmas is promised to all! Thanks to the moon moving from serious Capricorn into forward focused Aquarius early this morning, and with helping boosts from Jupiter, Mars and Chiron, here is a time when giving really makes a big positive difference. For the donor and for the recipient. Many celebrate the birthday of Jesus on Dec. 25. Some celebrate the birthday of Justin Trudeau on Dec. 25, 1971.
Monday, Dec. 26: The moon in Aquarius makes several connections today, the most consequential is a conjunction with Saturn. The moon, in any sign, is emotional. Saturn, in any sign, is emotionless. While Saturn can help with anything requiring the need of a steady approach, it tends to slow things to a near stop. It was Dec. 26, 1973, that “The Exorcist,” a horror film starring Linda Blair, was first seen. It was also the first horror film to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
Tuesday, Dec. 27: On the one hand, you are generous. On the other you are Scrooge. Can you be both? Sometimes rationalizing is all there is to do.

His contribution to Canada was to solve the Manitoba schools question, making English the only language taught in Manitoba’s school system.
Wednesday, Dec. 28: With Venus and Neptune making a strong connection, the desire to get away is powerful.
