December — Divine Feminine (The Empress)

The Empress asks us to remember that we are sovereign beings, and that no one walks in our shoes besides us. She asks that we check in with ourselves, first and foremost, before consulting outside council. You are the one who chooses how your life unfolds. Even in situations where you feel victimized, you get choose resilience or resentment. You get to decide how you are spoken to. You get to command the respect you deserve. Take stock of what’s working and not working in your life. Be bold in cutting away toxic relationships, patterns, work environments and habits. Choose to fully be in charge of your life and embodied in your dreams, convictions and desires.

December 14th — New Moon in Sagittarius (Solar Eclipse) — Six of Wands

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure,” writes Marianne Williamson. This is one of the most poignant quotes I’ve heard. What would our lives look like if we stepped into our own power? Just the concept makes most of us deeply uncomfortable. We’ve gotten used to playing small, playing safe and staying silent. We’re conditioned to see the light in others but not to shine our own. The Six of Wands asks you to step up and be fully seen in your magnificence. It asks you to speak your truth. To feel your feelings. And to go on an unapologetic quest to live your best life.

December 29th — Full Moon in Cancer — The Hermit

The Hermit signifies that you are at a crossroads. If something isn’t working in your life you have two options: The first is you continue to do things in the same way, to continue repeating the same behaviors that cause harm and upset you. This option may feel “safe” or “easy,” but I can assure you it’s not. We waste endless amounts of energy trying to stay in our comfort zone. The second option is opening yourself up to do things differently. We avoid this option because it requires us to take a risk, and risks are scary. So let’s reframe that. Yes, taking a leap is unnerving. But it’s saying “yes” to something deep and significant within us. Right outside of that comfort zone lies a sacred truth — that we are all born with endless potential. We are all born with divinity and worthiness. Taking risks and leaps and daring to do things differently is tapping into that birthright. This crossroads is asking you to choose your own greatness.
