Moon Wobble!  December 3, 2001


December 6th starts off with Moon Wobble!

As the name suggests it is a cycle of emotional instability and collective unsteadiness. The wisdom that is needed for this cycle is one of consciousness, emotional focus, and internal awareness. The possibility of excessive emotionalism, drama and/or fear can be very high during this time.

Remember our last Moon Wobble started the week of the World Trade Center bombing. Needless to say, Moon Wobbles can be powerful cycles. The world is still collectively at war with Terrorism. We may see in December more heightened fear and anxiety in the middle east as these countries and the United States work to resolve disharmony.

 What exactly is a Moon Wobble? Moon Wobbles occur when the transiting Sun makes an exact contact with the Lunar (the Moon’s) Nodes. This contact (in astrological terms) is called a conjunction, or a square. How long does it last? The exact date of this Moon Wobble will occur on December 18th and centered at 27 degrees Sagittarius. Usually, the awareness of this cycle starts about 10 days before the exact configuration then continues for 10 days after. Thus, the cycle will start on December 8th and will be completed by December 28th. We have about 4-5 Moon Wobbles per year.

What can I do during this cycle? The best way to handle this emotionally based cycle is to be a conscious observer. Everyone’s chart will be triggered by this cycle, but how much awareness and consciousness you bring is really the deeper wisdom teaching. Any potentially emotional cycle provides us the chance to access those deeper parts of our being that help us remember what to do when we are thrown off of our center.

This Moon Wobble is during the Holidays. This is generally a hectic and emotional time of the year anyway. Here are some of the things to watch during a Holiday Moon Wobble that I have found in my research and experience:

**The Holiday Season is a time when people add all kinds of activities to their already busy schedules such as parties. traveling and shopping and visiting relatives. Be careful on the roads this month. This Moon Wobble is in the sign of Sagittarius(Sun) and Gemini(Lunar Node). These archetypes are associated with communication and travel activities, both local and long distance.

**Things may not always be what they seem during Moon Wobble. Check things out first, ask questions, even if it seems annoying to the other person. This applies to many things; some of which are buying holiday gifts, apartment hunting, and even dating.

**Practice flexibility during this period. Sometimes things don’t go as planned during this time. Be open to more possibilities.

Finally, emotions can be somewhat irrational during this time. The Holiday Season is already a busy busy time. Try to stay centered and focused on what is most importantKeep out of a reaction mode. You may find that things weren’t really as they seemed and an opening of deeper understanding will be available to you.
