Choose to Stay Present with your Wounds and Heal

There are two cycles that should be looked at with new moons. One is the monthly cycle from new moon to new moon (think short term goals) and the other is roughly a six month cycle that ends when the full moon is in the same sign (long term goals). New moons offer a chance to set intentions that line up with the current energy flow.  Eclipses happen when a new moon or full moon are near the Nodes.  These are especially important in that they impact the path of humanity.

The Ophiuchus 2023 Moonth

This moonth is a time of shadow work.  There is potential for great healing with activation from Ophiuchus’ ruler, Chiron, as well.  Neptune entices a level of escapism.  However, I challenge you to instead dive deep into your wounds and allow yourself to feel and heal.  Mercury stands still with the new moon in preparation for his retrograde through Sagittarius.  Pluto will be dancing over the cusp between Sagittarius and Capricorn for most of next year.  This retrograde will likely give us the new information we need for the finalization of our collective perspective shift.

Our Ophiuchus Moonth starting with the New Moon on December 12th

This Ophiuchus new moon trines both Chiron and the North Node in Pisces, setting the stage for deep healing and setting us more firmly upon our life path.  A square to Neptune invites a tendency toward escapism.  The wounds that are activated this time of year are a gift.  Do not run from them.  Instead, sit with them and feel what they have to share so that you can find true healing in your life.  Mercury is station retrograde on this day in Sagittarius.  The next three weeks will be filled with new information.  Be ready to pivot as needed.  

The first quarter challenge on December 19th conjunct Neptune in Pisces will likely elicit deep emotions.  We may feel very alone during this quarter moon.  Stay present with what you feel and allow yourself any rest that you need during this time.  A sextile to Pluto in Sagittarius creates an opening for support through our transforming perspective.

The full moon on December 26th in Gemini encourages a status check on our learning, communication and exchange.  A trine to Saturn in Aquarius gives us the emotional ability to stay the course toward the future we are building and do what must be done on our healing path this moonth.  The dispositor, Mercury, is approximately two-thirds through his retrograde and has dipped into Ophiuchus encouraging us to integrate the information we’ve received this moonth into our healing journey.  A conjunction to Mars adds a level of drive to this, but a square to Neptune tends to make reality difficult to discern.

The last quarter challenge on January 3rd in Virgo forms a T square with Chiron in Pisces.  Take this time to balance doing with being, work with rest, perfection with flow, as you integrate the healing from this moonth with your new perspective.  

The six month cycle of this new moon prompts a status check in June to our shifting perspective with the full moon in Sagittarius.  The next full moon in Ophiuchus is not until June of 2027, illustrating how long the Ophiuchus moon cycle and the path of healing can be.
