If you are tempted to skip this step — please do not! With the current energy it is ***the most important thing*** you can do for yourself! Do that on the 17th or 18th of December. Use Turquoise (pictured above) to help you with this.
That way, when on the 19th the energy shifts in a big way, with Saturn’s move into Capricorn, followed closely by the Sun (20th), and then the Solstice (21st) — you’ll have an inspiration and motivation to make a solid plan for the future. Use Black Onyx and Garnet (pictured below) to help with this.
Because of this energy shift, this plan will have the potential to bring much greater stability to whatever seeds you plant than was possible in the last three years.
And finally, you will want to take action only when Mercury is well out of the retrograde period, so after Christmas would be a good time to start putting your plan into action.
