Things getting fired up?  If you’re feeling strung out or overwhelmed by choices, take a look up at the full moon on Dec 7.  A rare conjunction of fiery Mars gives this full moon a fierce energy of strong and decisive clarity. This full moon calls on warriors of the heart to throw off shackles of fear and self-doubt. Step forward and seize the day.

According to Vedic astrology, the full moon is in the area of the sky called Rohini nakshatra, a red star that represents the red eye of Taurus the bull. It’s said that Rohini is the moon’s favorite astral residence, and that under its influence the moon’s life-giving power is most potent. This passionate star can ignite powerful desire, as well as new life, whether on a literal level or in regards to an artistic project, which could now come to fruition.

The warrior planet, Mars, is exceptionally bright and close to the earth now.  Empowering Mars is retrograde, amplifying courage as well as frustration. Violent protests have erupted throughout China, and the women’s equality movement in Iran has developed significantly during this Mars retrograde period. Mars will turn direct on Jan 12.

In an extremely rare synchronicity (on Dec 7 at 8:13 pm PT), Mars will pass so close to the full moon that it will disappear behind it.  This creates a powerful Chandra Mangala yoga, an alignment known for courage, enterprise, and moneymaking possibilities.  This is an auspicious time to start a business venture, reorganize your finances, or maximize efforts on your current endeavors.

Take heed, strong feelings can arise around family, creativity and love on this full moon.  Passionate arguments and jealousy can come up.  People are more prone to sudden and impulsive actions and explosive results are possible.  Avoid unnecessary risks, potentially dramatic interactions and rushed travel under this full moon.

This fierce Rohini full moon with Mars can help you overcome your fears, set boundaries and inspire creative action.  Because Brahma, the god of creativity rules over Rohini nakshatra this is a time to explore your talents, invest in your passions and get out of your own way.
