With the Festive Season nearly upon us this is the time for us to start sorting out our plans for the giving of gifts, the sharing of meals, and the program of events to attend.
Astrology helps us to clarify all of these factors so let’s have a look at what we can find:
Gifts: In our individual birth chart the placement of Jupiter will show, by zodiac sign and by house, where we always want more from life. Therefore when giving a gift to someone else knowing where Jupiter is in their chart takes the guess work out of finding what they would like to have. This works all year round of course! But to apply this same principle to what is happening now we look to see where Jupiter is currently (or at the applicable time of celebrating), noting this position in the person’s individual chart. Jupiter is presently in the sign of Cancer, from here we look at this location to see what the recipient would like to be given now – often these gifts are the “perfect time, I need this in my life now”. With this as a guideline your gift will always be just right!
Food: With Xmas Day the Moon will be in Virgo until 19.18 (7.18 pm NZ time). At that time the Moon will move into Libra. With the Moon in Virgo the style of food needs to be refined, delicate, and clean; with the emphasis on it being healthy. It is advisable to be fussy, focused on the presentation and efficient with the quantities. There is a tendency for criticism, analysis and perfection to be overflowing, so be aware of keeping within the measures, in all ways! Once the Moon has moved into Libra the emphasis will be more sensual, indulgent, decadent, with the mood flowing easily into having a great time of sharing. Obviously for an event, such as Christmas Dinner, it would be better to have your gathering later in the day, making the main meal around sunset, that way you get to enjoy the harmonious atmosphere that Libra provides whilst also indulging of pleasurable treats.
Best Party Dates in December are: fortunately these all fall on the weekends this year.
The best dates to gather together loved ones, work colleagues, neighbors and friends are:
Friday 6th (from 8.00pm) to Sunday 8th – Moon in Aquarius – a great social highlight
Friday 13th to Sunday 15th – Moon in Taurus – take the time to feast on delicious food
Sunday 15th to (early) Wednesday a.m. – Moon in Gemini (Full on the 17th) – light-hearted fun & lots of merriment
Friday 20th (from 8.00pm) to early Monday 23rd – Moon in Leo – this is the ultimate gathering of loved ones, warm, hearty, happy and creative.
New Year’s Eve will have the Moon in Sagittarius so outdoor events are highlighted, new locations make it fun, the emphasis will extreme – so be careful as to what you choose to experience as extreme for you!
