12/25/16 is the number 10. The number 10 shows that there is some sort of synchronicity in the universe that goes beyond expectation and reason. Here we are celebrating the holiday with family and friends and we are on a place of powerful new beginnings. This timing could not have come at a better moment. We are all wishing for this holiday peace, goodwill, and for positive things to come to this world not just our country. But what everyone should realize now is that there is no magic wand or magic person that will do it for us. It is up to each of us and the power of the people and the love that this reality wishes to express that will tilt the world in that direction. Bridging those gaps of culture and perception is now the task to help everyone co-create a world where acceptance is the key to peace. Love wins over hatred only when as one voice we speak together with one heart. Saturn and Uranus came together in a trine yesterday, and Jupiter will oppose Uranus tomorrow. Venus harmonizes with this configuration today, forming a trine with Jupiter and sextiles with both Uranus and Saturn. You’re friendly and considerate, generous and cooperative without going overboard. You give one another space, yet you are also showing your commitment to others in productive and constructive ways. It’s easy to find the right balance between security and excitement in your relationships. Integrity and loyalty are favored. This is a good time to connect with others and to build trust. Your business sense is robust and balanced as well, and this can be an excellent time for creative design. The Moon is in Scorpio most of the day – until 10:20 PM EST when the Moon moves into Sagittarius. The moon is in its quiet void-of-course phase all day Sunday the 25th. However, there are three harmonious Venus aspects, which make for a very pleasant day. It is an interesting Christmas Day with a private Scorpio moon and social Venus connections. Perhaps a combination of time with loved ones and quiet times is a good mix. On Monday, the moon is Sagittarius combined with Jupiter opposite Uranus creates a bit of a wild day. Sagittarius believes in doing it big, so watch the budget if you are choosing to do the After Christmas shopping on the 26th. Jupiter has been building to opposition with Uranus since the Presidential elections. Uranus is “expect the unexpected” and Jupiter believes that bigger is better. So take a look where you need more freedom and innovation in your life as neither of these planets is happy when trapped in a closed environment. It is time to risk, let yourself be seen, open to new possibilities, and discover your own untapped resources.
And never could I have known the taste of heaven, had I not swallowed pieces of hell, first.

Take this moment to appreciate what is wonderful and beautiful about your life and this world. Now, ask the question, “Is it worth fighting for to bring your experience to others out there in the world who need it and want it?” We live in a world of imbalances. And we do not need to live in that world. There really is enough to go around if we all chose to be in a place of giving, gifting, sharing, teaching, helping, and supporting others. After being in Peru and wanting to help those who seemed to have less “things” but more “joy” than many American, I asked them what they wanted. I have always been surprised by their answers. They don’t want what we “think” they should want. They often want simple things to make their life better, things such as a piece of tin for a roof, a car that can get goods from the villages to the markets for the whole community. Often their choices are inclusive of others and their community. Rarely do you find in 3rd world countries do they want something just for themselves, especially when it is a larger gift. If you could give a “larger” gift to the world, what would you give? I do things such as donate to Tibet Aid and give to a family that needs the help, money, vaccinations, and schooling for their child. And I choose to do that consistently as part of my monthly offering to help those that I don’t even know. Now, you must pick carefully as there are unfortunately scammers out there, so check out the organizations first before you give but make a choice to reach out in a small way monthly that allows for your abundance to touch others in need in ways that serve them. I always remember the MASH show where the rich Doctor Charles Emerson Winchester, wants to give beautiful candies to orphans but it has to be a secret gifts. The Orphanage sold the candies for money to feed the children real food instead of a short termed treat. Have your expression of compassion be for someone your might have judgment upon. If you judge the Arabic world, perhaps donate to helping Syrian refugees. After all it is what is the right thing to do and it is how we learn to love what we fear in the world.
