For those who keep the olde ways in the northern hemisphere, while the winter solstice (Yule) marks the longest night of the year, it also heralds the dawn of a new one.
The Oak King will triumph over the Holly King. The sun will grow stronger. Warmth and life will slowly return to the land.
It is a time of wish magic, setting intentions and divination work for the coming year.
Conversely, in the southern hemisphere, the summer solstice (Litha) marks the longest day of the year.
It is a time of fairy magic, manifestation, and celebrating the abundant splendors of the earth, before the sun begins to wane.
Here are some crystal suggestions for this magical day. You can wear them to tune into the energy of these magical days, and to enhance any of your manifestation, healing, ritual, or spiritual workings.
I’ve also included TWO FREE SPIRIT JOURNEYS below that you can do on solstice day as part of your magical ritual!
Date: December 22, 2018
Full Moon in Cancer (Cold Moon)
Saturday, December 22 2018
Time: 12:48 PM EST
Moon 0°Cancer, in House 3
Sun 0°Capricorn, in House 9
North Node 26° Я Cancer, in House 4
South Node 26° Capricorn
Full moon themes: Family issues and concerns, community work, community concerns, new beginnings, old endings, completing something, the return of an idea or experience. Marital concerns, and exaggeration.
We have a beautiful moon cycle ahead of us! As we walk deeper into the darkness of Winter, it is important to remember what is most important to us and embody our lightness like the pale snow covering the ground.
Keep these questions in mind while you flow through this Wolf Moon cycle.
Aries energy keeps the momentum high and energy is building up. The card pulled for this phase is Movement. Make sure you do not lose your patience or waste your precious energy.
Now is the time to focus and channel your energy into your big plans and let this energy move through your body in a healthy way. Burn any excess energy off by moving your body and tap into your strength. You are stronger than you think!
Do not procrastinate or let the energy settle and stagnate in your body… You will most likely get sick that way!
|You may not feel it yet, due to the challenging aspects that the Sun is making to Mars and Neptune, lowering levels of personal energy — but let me assure you — this New Moon is truly something special!|
For the first time in 12 years it is coming up in Sagittarius together with the ruler of Sagittarius, whose keywords are luck,
optimism, new opportunities, growth, learning, expansion,
far-away places, travel!
New Moon opens up the energy for new beginnings so starting Friday and till the end of the month, you may feel this
“new life” Fire energy starting to build.
|Don’t let the temporary dive of Mars and Neptune into the |
oceanic depths mislead you into believing otherwise. They will try — but only so that you can test your faith, your belief in unseen magical world of goodness that is waiting for you.
This is the real test of faith — and another keyword for the
energy of this New Moon — to believe in the
greater meaning and the bigger picture, even when — and especially when — you can not yet see them. Remember that the New Moon actually means Dark Moon — if you look at the sky there is no evidence still that the Moon even exists. And
yet, it is there, ready to grow.
So if you can have that kind of trust on Friday and this
weekend — write out your biggest dreams relating to any of the keywords listed above while looking at the candle flame, to emphasize the Fire Element and then meditate with
Orange Calcite, Citrine, Imperial Topaz or Labradorite.
|Buy a new notebook and write them all out! Go big, play with |
it, you have nothing to lose!
And to go even bigger and solve some of your more persistent
questions about your life’s journey — check out the
Astro-Archetypes New Year Workshop — offered in
Williamsburg, VA on December 29th in collaboration with
Kathy Eckhardt — all other details are here:
[BTW — IF you have already sent me an email
registering for the workshop and did not receive my reply —
remember that Mercury is still retrograde, so please send again! I always reply and if I didn’t — that means I did not get it!]
As you see, understand, feel and expand your energy through
playing with your Astro-Archetypes in the unique ways that
we’ll do it, you will begin to notice how easily a new path
starts forming in front of you, leading you to places
you’ve always longed for . . .
Let the magic of transformations begin!
Till then,Stay happy and healthy!

This Full Moon in Gemini — Thursday and Friday — (check the full details below) — brings the energy of increased communication and higher learning, and you can go deeper with something that you started learning last year at about this time.
At the same time, while you may clear up or revise something from the past, make sure that you present any new ideas with clarity and patience.
The need to be right may be stronger than usual and the need to teach or preach may become overbearing if you don’t practice moderation.
Due to the stressful aspects between this Moon and Mars, as well as Mercury retrograde, you need to be EXTRA careful to avoid any arguments as well as while driving Thursday and Friday.
The Moon enters Gemini an hour before midnight and reaches its peak (becomes completely Full) at 39 minutes after midnight on the 23rd EST, less than a day after Sun enters Sagittarius.
Crystals to use: Fluorite, Aquamarine, Mahogany Obsidian
The mind may go into overdrive, so if you can’t sleep, you can meditate (check out my recorded Better Sleep meditations https://crystalcosmopolitan.com/meditation/ or use that “awake time” to put on paper some practical plans.
If you need any energy sessions (Crystal Reiki, Accunect or Tesla Healing) to carry you through or recover afterwards 🙂 — you know where to find me — crystalcosmopolitan.com and universalenergywaves.com

This New Moon in Scorpio is a very intense and emotional one. Many of us have been feeling the depths of this New Moon for several days now. Not only is it election time… but both the Moon and the Sun are in Scorpio right now. This means our inner world and outer world are both feeling that intensity and rawness that Scorpio can bring.
Venus is just now getting out of Scorpio, but you may still be feeling her, as Venus is still in her “Shadow Period.” Venus, the planet of love, has been retrograde in Scorpio the house of darkness and transformation since October, and won’t go direct until the 16th of November.
This will take a lot of pressure off of our relationships, as we are able to see things a bit clearer with the balancing help of Libra. Just as Venus goes direct, Mercury goes retrograde…
