Your Etheric Forecast

By Gina Rose

Love, sex, and commitment make the world go round –but you may have fallen off the ferris wheel. The coming month brings you opportunities to separate the junk from the treasure. Yes, there are pitfalls out there, and bad eggs -- plenty of people operating off the ugly paradigm of “someone wins, someone loses” when it comes to relationships. Ask the face(s) of God to which you relate and your guides to bring you collaborators instead. Be willing to play collaborator, so that other people may start to match you. The balance of masculine and feminine energy on the planet may be out of whack, but if you do something about it, there just may be something in it for you.

Major Influences for December:

New Moon in Sagittarius on the 2nd: let spontaneity and enthusiasm guide your day

First Qrt Moon in Pisces v/c on the 9th: watch out for people being more emotional than usual

Full Moon in Cancer v/c on the 17th: nurturing tendencies shine this is a great time to do something sweet for someone close to you

Last Qrt Moon in Libra v/c on the 25th: Libra is a good sign for people celebrating Christmas today as it’s a favorable sign for being with others esp. family

Stone of the month: Fuchsite

This stone is great for people interested in natural medicine since it can help channel information regarding herbal treatment & holistic remedies. Fuchsite helps you to understand your interaction with others, teaches true self-worth, and when it is right to help someone. It combines unconditional love with tough love when it’s time to say no therefore aiding in family conflict and taking care of your-self.

(Pagan Christmas)

Yule is celebrated on the Winter Solstice which happens on December 21st this year. The wreath is a typical Yule decoration representing the wheel of the year. Celts decorated evergreen trees with nuts, fruits, coins, and occasionally candles. The evergreen tree, holly, ivy, and mistletoe were important plants of the season, each in its own way symbolizing fertility and everlasting life.

Modern Christmas shares many traditions from Yule. In the fourth century, church officials decided to institute the birth of Jesus as a holiday. The Bible, however, doesn’t mention his birth date. Pope Julius I chose December 25th. It is commonly believed that the church chose this day in an effort to adopt and absorb the traditions of the Pagan Yule celebrations and to increase the chances of Christmas being embraced and celebrated.

"Yule, is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half.   Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day.  Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, much celebration was to be had as the ancestors awaited the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth and made her to bear forth from seeds protected through the fall and winter in her womb.  Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were "wassailed" with toasts of spiced cider."
- Yule Lore

"In the bleak mid-winter 
Frosty wind made moan, 
Earth stood hard as iron, 
Water like a stone; 
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, 
Snow on snow, 
In the bleak mid-winter, 
Long ago."
-   Yule Carol
