Capricorn: December 22 – January 21

As the third earth sign in the zodiac, Capricorn relates to practicality and purpose, but now not just for our self or those close to us, but for society.  Scorpio opens our heart to our soul. Sagittarius inspires us to find meaningful context for our soul. Now, naturally, in Capricorn, we want to apply our expanded, soulful beliefs to our purpose in the world. Through careers, philanthropic pursuits, businesses and other ambitions, we learn how to set goals, make plans, conspire with others, and manage time, people and resources. By bringing order to our vision, we ground inspired ideas into practical realities. This begins by taking charge of our own lives: accepting responsibility for our own emotions, applying discipline to our thoughts and actions, and holding ourselves and others accountable. Though we may feel driven to make our mark in our world and receive some level of recognition for our achievements, it is integrity that becomes most fundamental to our measure of success.  Are we living our lives in alignment with the beliefs and higher intuitive truths we’ve come to embrace and thus serving our soul’s intended potential for giving to this world.

If our ego is healthy and strong and has awakened to the awareness of our soul’s spiritual divinity, and we have attuned to a metaphysical wisdom, then we are more likely to hear and listen to that inner voice of divine guidance that gives intuitive and moral direction to our choices, helping us stay aligned to our soul’s plan. By doing so, we also align our self with the divine logic of a larger, higher, collective destiny, and in this way, the hidden forces of divinity can support the manifesting of our own unique higher potential, bringing us personal rewards while also furthering the collective evolution of our world.

If we have not yet awakened to spirit, then our Capricorn organizing energy is applied to more ego-driven goals and plans, still informed by the illusions of separation, death and fear and out of balance with the emotional needs of the opposing sign of Cancer. Personal wealth and power become the goals that promise more control, order and protection in our lives, even if it requires we become numb to the pain it causes in others and ourselves.  And to the extent we are still experiencing the unhealed wounds of our personality, our personal pain and shadows can fuel our worldly ambitions in ways that manifest much pain for others.   

Through the many experiences we have in pursuing our worldly purpose and contributions, sooner or later, we learn to become attuned to the collective rhythms of souls merging into creative synergy and we re-discover the feelings of belonging that reflect our divine oneness. Welcome Aquarius.

Look below for your birth sign (sun sign) to see what particular challenges/opportunities are being brought to your awareness this month. (These can also hold true if you have your Moon, Rising sign or a number of planets in the sign.)

Aries: As with the rest of your life, Aries, when it comes to career and purpose, you need plenty of autonomy and freedom to go your own way. In your career, it’s best that you lead or are given your own track. Or perhaps be an entrepreneur. In any case, it’s your ability to assert your unique identity that informs your goals, your associates, your style and your success. During this time, you may feel a surge in ambition that can set your course for some time to come, so be sure to check your ego and ask your higher self for direction.

Taurus: As another earth sign, Taurus, your steady and practical approach is helpful to reaching goals that are grounded in reality. For this reason, colleagues and clients find you reliable and trustworthy. This is a good time to promote those qualities in yourself. At the same time, watch for signs that your vision and goals may be too conservative, too cautious. Is it possible to think bigger without falling off the edge?

Gemini: if your professional life lacks stimulation and activity, you will feel frustrated more during this month. Your desire to learn, share, and communicate need a purposeful outlet, so set some goals that will honor that. It may take more than one profession or maybe some extra philanthropic activities. Make sure your intellectual strengths are recognized, yet be discerning with it. Sometimes, wisdom equals silence.

Cancer: Cancer is opposite Capricorn, so your challenge during this time, Cancer, is to integrate your sense of responsibility and outward achievement with your sensitivity to emotions and nurturing of others. This is a good time to examine how well you balance your work and home lives. Do you know when to stop caring about your colleagues’ personal troubles? To get things done in the world we usually have to remain a bit aloof from emotions; ours and others’. You’re probably better off in a profession that incorporates your feelings.  Your soul kind of wants that.

Leo: This is a good time to shine your individual light into your profession. You have power, strength and leadership skills to bring to the table. Let your playful and creative urges inform the goals and plans you and your team choose. You can inspire others by being yourself, and by being in tune with your soul, you act as a catalyst for positive change in the world.  

Virgo: Ok Virgo, this would be a good time to do a reality check around the goals and plans that you and others have set. Perhaps you’ve already seen some room for improvements. Now, more than ever, is the time to share and apply. Your critical and exacting style needs to be recognized and if you offer your insights with a soulful sensitivity, you will bring appreciated order to your ambitions.

Libra: Now is the time to notice if your professional environment and relationships feel balanced and in harmony. More importantly, is what you are doing creating more fairness and beauty in the world? Your social skills are important to what you bring to your worldly purpose, so make sure you are in a place to use them. This Capricorn month is a good time to draw attention to your own strengths and how it serves others.

Scorpio: You may feel an intense need for recognition in your work during this time, Scorpio. Others may notice your ability to dig deep, do the research, find the resources, and handle crisis situations. When you are connecting to your soul, you are a catalyst for transformation in the world. Be conscious during this month of how much drama you experience or create. Your own willingness to show vulnerability may allow others to be more authentic, enhancing their worldly purpose, too.  

Sagittarius: During this month, Sag, you will be more sensitive to the limits of your work environment and mission. If you are not feeling plenty of room for adventure, travel or deep meaning in your work, now is the time to take note and make goals for changing that. If you are bored, ask for change. Freedom to wander, literally or figuratively, is key. Your natural enthusiasm contributes greatly to your success in life, but is contingent on your goals having deeper meaning to you. Help others remember the bigger picture, too.

Capricorn: This is your time, Capricorn. Seize the day. Set those goals. Make those plans. You are a manifestor and your soul is counting on you bringing order to all you touch. As you keep aligned with your soul’s intuitive guidance, you attract those who can serve your cause well. Be mindful that they are whole human beings, with feelings and needs of their own. However important the goal, the best plan of action is one that respects everyone, so include people’s feelings into the plan, at some level.

Aquarius: Changing the world is at the heart of your self-identity, Aquarius. You see so much that needs innovation and redesign. And you have original and ingenious insights to answers. Does your career path honor you this way? Now is a good time to ask these questions. Are you serving the right people that align with your values? Are you ready to create your own unconventional career path? More than most of us, you want to contribute to humanity, so make sure you are creating your life as you need.  

Pisces: Engaging with the world at large with purpose and ambition is not your natural state, Pisces. Yet, your compassion for humanity draws you onto the world stage, nevertheless. If you can stay attuned to your deep soul wisdom, your heart will guide and protect you. If during this time you are aware of confusion, fantasy or a need to escape, look to the people who surround you. Make sure you have colleagues who are grounded, to whom you can delegate practical tasks, on whom you can rely for practical advice, and appreciate your sensitivity and need for tranquility.

Great Central Sun Chakra Aromatherapy Forecast

The Chakras are an ideal roadmap for personal growth and development.  In 2017 we are journeying through the Chakras and focusing on one Chakra a month. December brings us to the Great Central Sun Chakra, a transpersonal chakra and your connection to God Consciousness. It is the highest vibrating chakra…all that ever was and all that ever will be. It is where you access higher consciousness, your higher self, and the divine. This month, the Great Central Sun asks you – Can you find God (the divine) in everything and everyone? Do you find God in yourself?

Brief Overview of Chakras: The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal Chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Each chakra has personal growth themes, functions, and purposes.  The concept of the Chakras has been around for thousands of years; but the energy coming to us from the cosmos is changing. We are receiving potent and new energies of high frequency light from the universe. The 7 main chakras were appropriate for us these past 2000 years. As we move into a new era, new chakras above and below the physical body are forming and others are waking up from dormancy to help us evolve into our new future.

The Great Central Sun Chakra is a Transpersonal Chakra and is located at the center of the universe. It is not in our physical body, but in our etheric/energy body. This chakra is located in the highest dimension. It is the highest vibrating energy center. Its color is usually seen as ultraviolet or iridescent. The Great Central Sun is the Source and Center of the Universe. God Consciousness. The Universal Mind. It releases cosmic rays, light and love to all of creation and all of the cosmos. The Great Central Sun is doorway to the cosmos and beyond. It is full consciousness, where you become one with the source energy/creator of all. It is the point of origin of all physical and spiritual creation.

December 2017 Grand Central Sun Chakra Forecast: December is a month filled with religious and spiritual celebrations. It is perhaps the ‘holiest’ of all the months in the calendar year. For many people, December is a time to share with family and friends and celebrate the divine. But what does the divine truly mean to you? This month, as you celebrate the holidays (Holy Days), take some time to contemplate your own divinity. Can you find God (the divine) in everything and everyone? Do you find God in yourself? Can you connect to the divine? How? Do you feel connected with your higher self? Do you feel a strong connection with the universe/God/The Divine? Are you aware of and celebrate this connection all year, or only on certain holidays?

Message: “Listen to your higher self and sense what it is asking of you. Connect with the stars as you stand on earth and feel what your soul is yearning for. Open your mind and your heart to all that is out there and see what feels right for you. You are not alone and only you can define the undefined for yourself. Allow your connection to source to flow through you until you feel infinite peace” ~Laurel Virtues Water

Great Central Sun Chakra Aromatherapy Blend

  • 6 drops Lotus essential oil (Nymphaea caerulea)
  • 5 drops Sacred Frankincense oil (Boswellia sacra)
  • 4 Buddha Wood essential oil (Eremophila mitchelli)

This is a meditation blend meant for a diffuser. Prepare the oils in your diffuser and then lay down in a quiet space and close your eyes. Inhale the aroma and conceptualize/visualize what you think the source/universe/divine/God looks like to you. Visualize the center of the universe. As you do this, state the following affirmations: “I am connected to the Source and Center of the Universe. I honor the divinity inside me.”
