Mr Cat – Kairos

I can’t imagine why I didn’t expect it. After all, winter has come each of the many years of my life. My response to the unexpected cold and snow was to hunker down and hardly go out at all. That was not the best response for many reasons, but there you have it!

This is a big week as so many are busily preparing for the holidays ahead. On Tuesday we come to a significant Sagittarius New Moon – be sure to watch the video that Jennie and I made. On Wednesday we begin the last Mercury retrograde of 2023.

Because I hardly went out, I didn’t get any good pictures of our snowstorm to post this week.

Following a rather serious weekend, marked by somber emotions and practical accomplishments, the Moon enters Sagittarius at 6:10 AM EST. This encourages an expansive and open-minded outlook for the days ahead. Connect with diverse people and perspectives, open your heart to a sense of adventure and a willingness to explore the viewpoints of others.

At 2:26 PM EST, Mercury forms a lovely sextile aspect to Venus enhancing our communications and facilitating heartfelt conversations about love and connection. This is an opportune moment to express appreciation and love, deepen our connection with others, and share our most vulnerable feelings and sentiments.

Tomorrow brings us to the Sagittarius New Moon. Now we are in the very darkest phase of the Moon, an ideal time for introspection as you envision your path forward.



Tuesday, December 12, 2023

Today’s highlight is the Sagittarius New Moon at 6:32 PM EST. As the Moon aligns with the Sun in its monthly dance, a time of renewal and new beginnings unfolds. This marks an opportunity to metaphorically plant seeds for moving forward—set intentions, initiate projects, or pursue personal goals to broaden your perspective on the world.

In the cyclical nature of life, the start of any new cycle is preceded by the end of the previous one. Recognize the significance of the house that holds Sagittarius in your natal chart. This area represents where the ending occurs and where you’ll sow the seed for growth in your life. Take a moment to consider the impact on your personal journey and embrace this chance for fresh beginnings.

At 2:09 AM EST, Mercury stations retrograde, initiating a period that will extend until January 1, 2024. Contrary to popular misconceptions, Mercury retrograde is a potent time for accomplishment.
Make a list of everything left undone over the past few months. Focus on this list during these three weeks, and you’ll be astonished by the progress you can achieve.
Watch the video about this potent retrograde for general information about Mercury’s retrograde cycle, how this specific retrograde calls us to renew our inspiration, as well as where in your life you can expect the issues involved to arrive.
Look at your natal chart to determine what areas of your life will be impacted. This Mercury retrograde will involve itself in the house that holds Capricorn as well as the one that holds Sagittarius.
The Moon enters Capricorn at 10:31 AM EST. Under this influence, emotions may be tempered by a sense of responsibility and practicality. Keep your focus on strategic efforts, as Capricorn’s influence encourages us to approach tasks with diligence and a long-term perspective. Tackle priorities with a structured approach.


Thursday, December 14, 2023

Today brings us the steady influence of the Moon in Capricorn, highlighting a practical and goal-oriented approach to our feelings and emotions. Disciplined and pragmatic attitudes prevail, reminding us of the importance of methodical precision and maintaining our focus on long-term goals.

The morning kicks off with the Moon forming a lovely sextile to Venus, suggesting an ease of cooperation and kindness in relationships. Our interactions with others should maintain a sense of warmth and harmony allowing for meaningful connections.

This evening, the Moon forms a trine aspect to Uranus, infusing the atmosphere with a sense of innovation and spontaneity. Embrace change and think outside the box, explore new ideas, or engage in activities that are exciting and novel.

Today begins with the Moon in Capricorn, setting a practical and focused tone for the early part of the day. Focus on your responsibilities and long-term plans. Address all tasks with practicality and dedication.

As the day progresses, at 12:55 PM EST, the Moon transitions into Aquarius, introducing a shift toward more innovative thinking and emotional connection to larger community causes. This Aquarian influence encourages us to explore unconventional ideas where a willingness to think outside the norm can lead to exciting possibilities.

The day invites us to balance issues of practicality with open-minded exploration, allowing for a dynamic and socially engaging atmosphere.


Saturday, December 16, 2023

Today, as the Moon moves through Aquarius the atmosphere is infused with an air of innovation and a focus on personal freedom and individuality. At this time, there is a heightened appreciation for unconventional ideas, social connections, and the development of a collective spirit. The Aquarian Moon encourages us to embrace our unique perspectives, bringing with it a sense of open-mindedness and a willingness to explore progressive concepts. It’s a time when community interactions and forward-thinking endeavors may offer opportunities to break free from routine and a more unusual frame of mind.

At 10:42 PM EST, the Sun in Sagittarius forms a challenging square aspect to Neptune. This aspect introduces a potential tension between the Sun’s quest for truth and expansion and Neptune’s cloudy perceptions and potential confusion. Approach this period with caution, as the square aspect may create challenges in distinguishing reality from illusion. Clarity may be elusive.

The best use of Neptune’s confusion and elusiveness lies in embracing creativity, intuition, and spiritual exploration. Instead of viewing Neptune’s influence as a hindrance, embrace it as an opportunity to tap into your imaginative and intuitive faculties. Play with art, explore your dreams, and allow your intuition to guide you. Expect this to be with you for the remainder of the weekend.

Sunday, December 17, 2023

Today begins with the Moon still in Aquarius, offering an air of innovation, individuality, and an appreciation for unconventional ideas. Begin the day with open-minded intellectual explorations and social connections. Engage with like-minded individuals, share unique perspectives, and embrace a more progressive approach to any issues addressed.

At 2:58 PM EST, the Moon transitions into Pisces. This changes the emotional tone of the day. The Pisces Moon invites us into a dreamier, more introspective realm. This mirrors the Sun – Neptune square aspect that occurred last night. The Piscean Moon (along with the Sun – Neptune square) encourages us to tap into our intuition, explore creative expressions, and engage in activities that foster a sense of compassion and empathy. This is a time when your emotions may feel overwhelmingly sensitive, fluid, and indistinguishable from the emotions of others or even the collective at large. By bringing today’s immense sensitivity to your creative pursuits or your meditation cushion you can find deep meaning and compassion for yourself and others.
