Running with Scissors

Happy Full Moon in Cancer! Our lunar teacher sits on her throne at maximum wattage. The Moon rules this sign that governs home, family, and feelings. Some will be extra emotional and tender. Notice sentiments of nostalgia, longing, self-pity, and regret. Understand that water signs are mute; sometimes, it is hard to put emotions into words. Treat yourself and others gently. Use the illumination to consider how insecurity, rejection fears, and safety desires motivate your actions.

This lunation is a perfect time to explore your tender psyche and what sets off emotional reactions within you. Venus in investigative Scorpio is in a smooth trine with sensitive Neptune. You may have uncomfortable revelations about your behavior in relationships. Our shadows help us grow. Communicative Mercury is retrograde and conjunct warlord Mars in expansive Sagittarius. Notice what you decide to stop doing. Mars rules sharp instruments, and Mercury rules the hands. Don’t run with scissors, multitask while cutting things, or put on eyeliner while driving. Ouch! Stories in the news related to this planetary pattern:

  • Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to expand the war to Beirut if Hezbollah continued to fire rockets at Israel from Lebanon. Jupiter is stationing to turn direct on December 30 and its energy intensifies five days before and after the station. The planet makes things bigger, broadens and can give an overinflated sense of confidence. Let’s hope this is an idle threat.
  • Plagiarism merges the theme of communication and theft (Mars). Claudine Gay, the President of Harvard, has been mired in scandal since the October 7th attack because of her perceived lack of leadership about antisemitism on the campus. People combed through her past writings (retrograde) and documented instances of her lifting full paragraphs from other authors without the proper citations. Both herself and the Harvard governing board are facing calls to step down. Mars attacks.
  • Senator Lindsay Graham is going to war to stop a bill forcing Chick-Fil-A restaurants to open on Sundays. They are closed for religious reasons. The bill (Mercury) is aimed at restaurants connected to the NY State Thruway authority. Sagittarius rules long-distance travel and religious beliefs.
  • Horrific weather conditions in the Northern Plains are creating a travel (Mercury) nightmare that may lead to long delays (retrograde) and increase the possibility of accidents (Mars).

Notice what you decide to stop doing due to your holiday season experience. Mercury rules thinking, and Mars severs and separates. Use these prompts for journaling, oracle card pulls, or contemplation:

I have been overindulging and will clean up my act starting January 1 with the ProLon, the 5 day Fast Mimicking diet. Three cycles of this cleanse were life-changing for me. It boosted my metabolism and curbed cravings. I lost almost 20 pounds and have kept most of it off. I do it twice a year as a reset. Use my discount code 10CELESTE. Right now the discount is 25% instead of the usual 10%.

As the year closes, I am adding many of the Cosmic Conversations I host on Instagram to my YouTube channel. This year’s guests included Theresa Reed, Sam Reynolds, Colin Bedell, Jessica Lanyadoo, Cameron Allen, Omari Martin, Clarissa Dolphin, Mychal A. Bryan, April Elliot Kent and more.
