Saturday 15th December
Wow, it really feels like Winter has arrived, the wind was cutting this morning when I went to the village shop. If we are lucky enough to get a clear evening then the moon is in Pisces and close to Mars which is always worth a look. Astrologically, when the Moon and Mars are close together we could feel a bit sensitive and emotional, especially as it is in Pisces. So this is a good time to snuggle up in the warm and watch a weepy movie!

Friday 14th December
Yesterday I had some exciting post; a copy of January’s ‘Let’s Talk’ magazine and I am in it! I am doing a regular astrology feature ‘Star Talk’ where I discuss a sign of the month. For January this is Capricorn as Capricorns are born from 21st December – 20th January. Thank you to Angie and Terry and the Let’s Talk team for including me in their magazine. Astrologically, Jupiter, planet of opportunity and expansion is currently moving through Sagittarius and it is now very close to (conjunct) my natal sun. (The place of sun when I was born) so this is a lucky time for me and all you other Saggies out there.
If you would like to know about how the planets are playing out for you at the moment, I do individual readings. Please contact me for more details.

I said yesterday that Mercury has moved into Sagittarius. If you like planet spotting, it is visible in the early morning just before sunrise. Luckily for me, a sleepy head, sunrise is very late here in the northern hemisphere as it is only 8 days before the winter solstice. If you want to find Mercury, first pick a clear morning! Then if you have the chance between your morning duties, school run, toast making, etc, go outside before dawn. Tomorrow Friday 14th, it is 7.59 in Norfolk (regionally it varies a little bit) look to the East and find Venus. It is very bright and beautiful at the moment. (I’ve been going on about spotting Venus in the morning for a while now, on and off.) Mercury is also bright and below Venus. Also, if you feel like braving the cold, tonight is a good night to go out and look for the Geminids meteor shower. We are very lucky here in Norfolk to have dark skies. Apparently is best to look for them at 2am but you can be lucky and see them earlier than that, they are a bit unpredictable!

Tonight just before midnight, Mercury moves back into Sagittarius. It was in Sagittarius all of November and spent the first two weeks of December in Scorpio where it turned round and is now moving forward again. Sagittarius is a lively, generous sign but as I have said before it is not too keen on details. So this is good for getting into the party spirit and giving great presents, but do check those pesky details like dates and addresses!

Hello, it’s a beautiful morning, I love the frosty winter days. It’s not so good if you’re a chicken though! I had to melt the water on my birds’ drinker today and yes, one of them had laid an egg this morning. 🙂
Today Mercury communication planet is in the last degree of Scorpio, ready to move into Sagittarius. There is often a sense of urgency when a planet is in the last degree of a sign. It is forming a grand trine to healer planet Chiron and the Moon’s North Node in Cancer. Venus is making a positive aspect to gentle romantic Neptune in its own sign of Pisces. So today is a good day for communicating about emotions and nurturing relationships.

Sunday 9th December
It is a lovely clear evening here in Norfolk and the new moon is visible. It is a beautiful silver sliver visible in the evening as it now sets after the sun. Tonight the sun set at 15.40 GMT in Norwich and the moon will set at 17:41 , so if you want to see it, pop out and have a look. It is in the South West low in the sky as it is in Capricorn. (Cloud permitting). A new moon is good time to start things and tomorrow I have a lot of reading to do! The new moon from our lane, just about visible in my photo.🙂
