Gemini / Cancer / Leo
Our watchwords for 2017 are Innovation, Follow Through, and Compassion; sprinkle this stardust on your year… Pluto is still in Capricorn through 2024, transforming how we use power—electrical, political and personal—by showing us power at its most oppressive worst, as well as at its empowering best…. As 2017 dawns, we are called to keep our hearts open, our souls soft and protective, and dream together…We are reminded to look to one another for collaborative answers to life’s emergencies… The action picks up, impulse control lowers, and our defenses need to strengthen… we need to fight the good fight, not fight one another.…
Capricorn calls us back to reconnect with our family, history, dreams, and traditions around the Winter Solstice, then use those strengths to organize the structure of our life and our work ahead. We need mountains to climb and problems to solve.
It’s time to come home and return to our shell, nurture our soul away from existential homesickness and into connection with the Mother and with our chosen family. The vibe is moody, protective, cranky and defensive if we feel pushed—but cozy, nurturing and empathic where we feel safe. Those Born Under a Cancer Moon long for profound security and so, as empaths, they can nurture the tenderness within others. Their sensitivity needs protection so they can keep their hearts well-guarded. They can be caring leaders once they learn to believe in themselves.

This is a week of adjustments, and the real beginning to the work of 2017. Hang in there. Hold one another’s hand walking across the ice. Find the still center in the spinning wheel, the calm in the storm. Feel the slippery, stormy edges, and . . .
Tuesday, January 10: Changes keep on coming, be ready to modify the plans made over the last few weeks as the Sun squares Uranus. The world can feel edgy and prickly, which, towards the end of the day leaves people feeling self-protective and emotional as the Moon enters cancer . . .
