Dark Moon, 18 December 2017
Powerful “break through” energy
by Katharina Bless
This Dark Moon finally brings us a new energy that will shift a lot of thing in our personal lives and also globally. Now the Sun has moved into Sagittarius and the conjunction of the Dark Moon is on the first degree of Sagittarius. There is an awesome alignment of a star cluster around this Dark Moon constellation, bringing a powerful “break through” energy.
Mercury is still retrograde in Scorpio and will turn direct on the 23rd when we will be able to finally get rid of a lot of things that don’t belong into our lives anymore. This last month of the year 2017 brings shifts that are pivotal to the next year which will bring a very different energy into our lives!
Saturn, also in Sagittarius, is a big key for what is going on. The rigid boundaries are bursting and the Saturn brings the dedication and wisdom for achievements of maturity. It might be a challenge on a personal level, but if we can free ourselves, we will find a lot of new insights and with them a new freedom.This is connected to a higher level of understanding and transformed consciousness.
The time to make important decisions will be upon us after Mercury goes direct again on Dec 23rd. We have still time to prepare and focus, or maybe research some options that are available for us now. Saturn may slow the pace a bit, but at the same time protects from over-reaction and too fast and not well thought-through decisions.
This time quality helps us to “loose weight” on many levels, throw old “sand bags” over board and start anew. Self-response-ability is written in capital letters and we are supposed to make our own decisions and not listen to the “good advise” of others. They can’t walk in our shoes and might not completely understand our point of view, so we better take some time out for a deep meditation to communicate with our own “higher Self” to come to a conclusion.
There will be things coming up that we have carried around for a long time, they were disturbing probably, but not clearly visible. Now they are surfacing in a new light and we have the chance to look at them from a different perspective and come to and solution and maybe a clear cut.
It helps to take a step back and if emotions are coming to the surface, wait a day or two until they are gone and the vision is clear. The trines to Uranus are helping since Uranus is still retrograde and the “clearing explosions” are happening inside. But they might trigger emotions and we need to wait until the waters are calm before making a decision.
The trines to the North Node in Cancer are indicating that a big worldwide shift is under way. It might be clear already that the global consciousness has gone through a transformation and people start to really see and understand that those who rule are not the benefactors we would want them to be and take care for human beings in an altruistic way. We need to pay attention to our feelings and again, make sure we don’t decide things from in a moment when emotions are high!
We have to realize that we have to take the lead if we want to change things around. We are now in a position of manifesting something different. Since Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is in Libra many things that are completely out of proportion, are now being brought back into balance. This is also true for our lives. This requires that we face the beast and accept that part of darkness within. No judging! But learn to love it free!
Most people are upset that negative things are coming from outside into their lives. What most don’t understand is that only things can be in our lives if we have an affinity to it. Those who are suppressing their natural energies to behave as they are told to, might experience those energies, because suppressed, from outside in a very aggressive way. It is very well visible in the world in the moment.
We have to look at it, do it! Nobody is doing it for us if we don’t take the lead. There always will be followers, but they will never achieve the same as if one is moving to become a leader. This requires to actively be present and responsible for all of our actions. No outside blame!
Presently I am involved in a new model of leadership training that comes out of a long time line of workshops to empower women. It is not just paying for a training, but become the leader at one stage and being paid. It is a awesome opportunity to break free. If you are interested you can contact me for more details. We are in the process to also apply the same model for mixed groups of man and women who are interested in holistic leadership.
Mars, still in Virgo, is grounding the energy and every thing that we have an experience of, will be ready to be harvested. Since there is a quintile from Mars to Neptune, there is again the emphasis of the depth of happenings, that most likely can’t be totally comprehended by the mind.
Many people told me that they feel a bit nervous about something that is to come. Some new energies. And new energies bring new options. Every time we start something new it is natural to be a bit insecure at first! Since we don’t have the experience of how it works and what it brings this is totally natural and right. If we would be too bold about it, we might make mistakes we come to regret. This kind of insecurity that is felt now is the caution we need for a new step forward and alert us to totally be in the present.
Therefore be patient and know that things are shifting. Use your instinct and intuition to move on and not the rational mind.
A word of caution is about your health. The constellation we have might be critical and trigger some symptoms or healing crisis, maybe even something we suffer from since a long time and it flares up again and again. It is time to pay attention and also approach maybe a different way of healing. Not what we tried before and was not successful. Maybe you also look into the message of the illness and not just at the symptom. The message of the dis-ease might be the key to heal it.
The organs speak a quite clear language if we “translate” them naturally looking at their function. For example, the lungs are connected with communication, the air we share and breath in and out… the digestive system is not just digesting food, but is connected to every thing else we experience and need to digest.
If you can’t see it, there is a awesome book about the “Healing Power of Illness” form Thorwald Dethlefsen. And if you buy that book, start to read in the beginning and don’t go to look at the symptoms first because you need the introduction first to understand how it all builds up. This book is one of my “bibles” since the 80’s.
Get ready for the coming year of big changes. I mentioned in one of my previous readings that in April ’18 Uranus will move into Aries and that is indeed a big energy shift to expect. Each time when one of the slow planets is moving into another sign, we can feel it on a global level and since Neptune is in Aquarius and Pluto in Sagittarius, when Uranus moves into Aries we have them in fire and air signs, elements that support each other.
I wish you a blessed HolyDay Season with my best wishes for the transit into the new Year!

**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ degrees different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.silverdove.net
For your convenience I list the degrees of the sign and dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° / April 18, Taurus: 36° / May 13, Gemini: 28° / June 21, Cancer: 20° / July 20, Leo: 36° / Aug 10, Virgo: 44° / Sept 16, Libra: 23° / Oct 30, Scorpio: 25° / Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° / Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° / Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° / Feb 16, Pisces: 37° / March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
