It’s the full moon tonight! It is rising in the North Eastern part of the sky as I write and is in its own sign of Cancer. So here in the UK it will be up for over fiftteen hours and dominate the sky tonight, as it did last night! The full moons have names, this one has quite a few to choose from; ‘the cold moon’, ‘the moon before yule’, ‘long night moon’ or ‘oak moon’. The sun is now in Capricorn and was up for seven and a half hours and is low in the sky all day. I was lucky enough to get out for a walk and get some daylight which is nice. I know not everyone gets the chance this time of year. I took the Moon photo last night after all the rain, and the sunset photo this evening.

Happy Winter Solstice! As I said yesterday, the Sun moves into Capricorn tonight so the wheel of the year turns promising the return of the light. This is is a good time to review and appreciate. Thank you all for following my writings!

Today is the last full day of the Sun in Sagittarius before it moves into the sign of Capricorn tomorrow night at 22.23 GMT. This is the winter solstice when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky.
The word solstice comes from the Latin and means sun stands still. Here in the Northern Hemisphere we know the light will gradually return; a welcome thought! However, I do enjoy the dark winter evenings snuggled by the fire.
I like to decorate the house with evergreen foliage was out today collecting holly and ivy to and put behind the pictures. When it comes to the tree, we cheat a bit and have an artificial one.

Christmas is fast approaching and today just ran away from me. I went on a big shop and got very excitable with malt loaf for some reason, we now have 5 loaves of varying different sizes and flavours! Oh well my son loves malt loaf so he can happily much his way through them all, he’s got until the end of January.😃😃
1 Jupiter planet of excess is conjunct my sun,
2 I’m getting dafter by the day.
3 Both of the above.

I saw this event The Moon Exhibition advertised on Facebook, it is at the Moyse’s Hall Museum Bury St Edmunds and runs from Saturday 19th January until Saturday 9th March. It looks really interesting and I am definitely aiming to go to this in 2019.

This week, Mercury, communication planet is moving closer to expansive Jupiter in enthusiastic Sagittarius. They will be exactly conjunct on 21st December. This should bring good news and be quite a fun time, but do watch out for people (yourself and others) being a bit too honest and indulging in a bit of exaggeration.
As those of you who read my page regularly probably know by now, I am a Sagittarius – I have been going on about it recently. As Mercury moves closer to Jupiter and my sun, I’ve been having a communicative day with calls and messages bringing good news and opportunities. 🙂
Sunday December 16th
I’m a bit later writing today as we have come back from visiting my family to exchange presents, I call it doing the ‘Santa run’. So we are getting to feel fairly Christmassy; we had our well loved Xmas CD on in the car! The tree has yet to go up, we will do that in the coming week. My parents’ house West and I made the most of this by peering out of the window in the dark and seeing the moon on her back setting last night- around midnight, quite late for me. It was shimmering behind trees as it set. It added to the festive feel along with the neighbour’s Christmas lights! The moon is now in energetic Aries helping us have a boost of energy to get everything done for Christmas.
