New Moon in Capricorn 28th December 2016

Today's New Moon in Capricorn 28th December 2016 conjunct Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn equals a good time to re think objectives and new ideas. Moon conjunct Mercury adds intuition (Moon) to thought processes (Mercury) and Moon conjunct Mercury can help clearer thinking, so make the most of these few days of clarity during this Mercury Retrograde period. New ways of making money or focusing on ambitions are good for a Capricorn New Moon. Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces is a lovely, a spiritual, visionary aspect and in positive aspect to this New Moon suggests magic can happen aided by creative visualisation helping to manifest things. Jupiter in opposition to Uranus is an exciting aspect that will feature in 2017. Uranus is the planet of breakthroughs and bolts out of the blue, innovative, original energy that can help push up forward with fortuitous Jupiter which is all about the future, the bigger picture and expansion. Sudden changes in fortune, big radical ideas, searching for truth and deeper meaning are all possibilities with this influence. Saturn trine this Uranus will help anchor and ground any shifts. Inventive energy with the ability to practically apply is indicated with this New Moon and connected influences. So a positive New Moon, all in all.

Full Moon in Gemini 13/14th December 2016

Full Moon in Gemini 22 degrees on 14th December in the UK at 12.05 a.m. Gemini is a highly strung, emotionally changeable sign with an over active mind, restless energy, a heightened imagination and a love of communicating. The four days before and four days after a Full Moon are when the influences are most likely to be experienced. As always Full Moons make many people feel more emotional, super sensitive, moody or extreme. With Gemini the Jekyl and Hyde sign just be aware people may say one thing one day and then have a different stance on another. Remember Full Moons can increase insomnia and provoke lucid or strange dreams. Full Moons often bring about revelations and with a Gemini Full Moon two faced people's true colours may come to light or people may show their duplicitous ways. On the plus side Gemini is witty, sociable, playful, spontaneous and curious so a good Full Moon for Christmas Party season chatting to lots of different people and making small talk or doing something impromptu or fun. Even more so as this Gemini Moon is in positive trine to Jupiter in people loving Libra. Different thoughts and illuminations may occur to you as Gemini is good at seeing different points of view. Gemini has a duality to it, some people may feel this influence as a tug of war being pulled in different directions or feeling like a person spinning plates. This Full Moon is a mixed bag and will be experienced in different ways for people. Moon in Gemini opposite the Sun conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius could be felt as a pull between frivolity and wisdom and responsibility. Sun conjunct Saturn was described brilliantly by an astrologer called Tanaaz as taming a wild horse. So this influence could prevent people acting too Full Moon loco. Venus and Mars in Aquarius are helpful influences for getting glamorous and trying out new hairstyles or a different style of outfit to the norm. Mercury Retrograde's pre shadow influence (Mercury turns Retrograde on 19th) is already being experienced with increased travel delays, confused thinking, mixing up words, saying strange things and weird technological blips. Mercury Retrograde in Gemini,Virgo (both ruled by Mercury) and Aquarius are the worst times for computer and tech problems. Back up anything important!

It's nothing to be feared, just remember to leave extra time for important appointments and to double check emails or facts before sending them. Aside from the usual Mercury Retrograde challenges *see the copied and pasted post below* How may Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn be experienced. Capricorn is a responsible, serious earth sign that likes structure and security. so re visiting old schedules, past structures, reassessing career goals or reviewing one's finances or anything materially related are all possible focuses during this period.

Mercury Retrograde Reminders - Copied & pasted article from

Couldn't have summarised it better.
Mercury doesn't go Retrograde until 19th December, in Capricorn but pre Shadow Mercury Retrograde began last Thursday, so some of the effects may begin to be felt.
"What is Mercury retrograde?
Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop (station) and spin backward (retrograde). Of course, it really ISN’T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that one (Mercury, in this case) is going backward.
In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology—so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks.
To top it off, Mercury retrograde also has what’s called a “shadow period” (which we explain in this post about Mercury’s shadow), so you may feel the retrograde a couple weeks before and after it actually happens.
So how not to have a nervous breakdown? Don’t start anything new. Review all your contracts before you sign. Renew your commitments, rather than making new ones. Prepare to repeat yourself often. It’s like learning a new dance. Or something.
Note to all 21st-century dwellers: Mercury retrograde can crash electronic equipment. Back up your computer, calendar and cell phone address book. Expect delays if traveling, and pack a book to entertain yourself while you wait for the tardy bus or plane. Get in touch with old friends – and don’t be surprised if people from your past track you down. You might hear from the most RANDOM ex-boyfriends and childhood classmates during retrogrades. Mercury also rules contracts, so think before you ink. Either wrap up important negotiations before the cycle starts, or wait to sign documents until Mercury goes direct.
If you were born during a Mercury retrograde (which we were), you may actually become sharper, clearer or more productive during this time. You won’t be immune to Mercury’s global impact (we once had a hard drive systematically erase itself before our eyes during Mercury retrograde), but you could also thrive in areas where others are flailing (almost every big writing contract and book deal we’ve gotten was offered during Mercury retrograde). You might even become more psychic or dialed-in during Mercury’s backspin. How do you find out if you were born during Mercury retrograde? Do a free chart on our site and you can find out instantly.
Mercury retrograde do’s and don’ts.
1. Review all contracts and legal documents before signing.
2. Pause and breathe before speaking. (Repeat yourself if necessary!)
3. Read all emails and documents before you send.
4. Insure/track important mail and packages (Mercury rules the postal system).
5. Get your vehicles (or bikes) tuned up, pack an emergency roadside kit.
6. Leave early for any travel and appointments, since Mercury Rx can delay flights.
7. Renew your commitments instead of making new ones.
8. Focus on the prefix re-, which means to go backward (renew, review, revamp, redecorate, et al.)
9. Plan reunions with old friends & loved ones (but prepare for possible mishaps!)
10. Expect to hear from/run into people from your past at the weirdest moments.
11. Get sentimental. Reconnect with your roots, walk down memory lane.
12. Practice forgiveness. Finish processing what’s unresolved so you can let it go.
13. Confirm all dates, plans, meetings, appointments.
14. Think of the retrograde as a quarterly review period, a chance to pause and finish what you’ve started.
15. Back up your digital data (photos, contact lists, files) before the retrograde or ASAP if it’s started.
1. Buy new vehicles, electronic equipment or gadgets (unless they come with a good return/repair policy).
2. Sign contracts without a thorough review (delay until Mercury turns direct if you can).
3. Fly off the handle or jump to conclusions if someone misunderstands you.
4. Run into the arms/bed of an ex without careful screening (Mercury reunions aren’t always meant to last).
5. Shoot the messenger if someone from your past comes around.
6. Put anything sketchy into an email or text (you could hit “Reply All” or send to the wrong person!).
7. Leave late for flights or appointments.
8. Start anything new on top before finishing what’s ahead on the to-do list.
9. Lead people on, give mixed messages, or believe everything you hear (actions speak louder than words).
10. Spread rumors, rant on social media or share unconfirmed information.
11. Turn in sloppy or unchecked work, cut corners, dash off hasty communications. Inspect to protect!
The silver lining? Mercury retrograde is a great opportunity to handle unfinished business. Most of us start a million things that we don’t complete, never realizing how much psychic clutter this creates. The retrograde is like a quarterly review, a chance to tie up those loose ends and create a clear vision for the future. Take advantage of it, and you’ll emerge fresh and ready when Mercury goes direct. As the cliche goes, what you resist persists. So the more you can embrace chaos or a lack of control (and isn’t control an illusion, anyhow?), the better you’ll survive this cycle."
