Money ‘Scopes by Darla Downing

Aries
Payback is sweet, especially when it comes all at once. Yes, beautiful ram, karma comes full circle this month, with you getting the respect and appreciation you deserve. Expect others to pay back loans they owe you on December 1st and 2nd. By your peers clearing their debt, you will be stress free, and able to buy the best gifts for your flock. A work project ends on the 22nd, which will spin you into seasonal happiness, as you can take time off for the holidays. Mars connects with your Sun on December 31st, giving you the motivation to seek more fame and wealth in 2019. That’s right, Aries, you kick off the New Year with a bang, taking no prisoners to achieve your goals. Just be sure to take the last week of December off from work, so you can move into the New Year with determination and gusto.
Taurus 
December 7th pushes your credit cards to the max, as your holiday spending habits this year are at a high. However, don’t fret, money from a past investment is coming your way on the 15th. The Full Moon on the 22nd allows you to rethink your work plan for 2019, even forcing you to take much needed time off to spend with your family. New Years Eve may cause you to be reflective in the upcoming year, as you try to find your niche in the world amongst all the other Bulls.
Gemini
You’ve worked super hard all year to achieve your professional goals. However, December asks you if the sacrifices you made in 2018 were worth the professional acclaim you are experiencing now. The New Moon on December 7th and Mercury’s forward movement on the 6th, give you a chance to rethink your career path. The 15th heightens your confusion, while the Winter Solstice on December 21st and the Full Moon December 22nd end an existing partnership at work.
Cancer 
The New Moon on the 7th allows you to reconnect with colleagues, as you all have fun rocking around the Christmas tree at your office holiday bash. The Full Moon on the 22nd puts the focus on you, as you are the Crab of the hour at work, which will give you the drive to get your hustle on in the New Year, as action planet Mars moves into your professional sphere on December 31st, giving you the chance to up your game at work in 2019.
Leo 
December isn’t a particularly bad month for you, sweet lion. However, it does lead you down several confusing paths, which may force you to abruptly walk away from  creative projects. The New Moon on the 7th brings a lucrative venture your way. Beware, this project is not what it seems. Being paid on time will result from the partnership, adding frustrations down the road. The 12th heightens your hesitations about the project, forcing you to choose another venture to dedicate your time to. Listen to your intuition, if it doesn’t feel like the right fit—let the gig go. There will be more opportunities for you down the road which will be a better fit.
Virgo 
Business may have been slow this past month, forcing you to assert your thrifty nature, in order to save some cash. With your planetary ruler, Mercury, turning direct from its endless retrograde journey, on the 6th, you can expect a momentary reprieve around work and money. The 15th brings old clients back for good, as Uranus (who is moving backwards through its retrograde motion) and Neptune bring unexpected success your way, lasting into the New Year.
Libra 
Finally, after months of financial ups and down, December brings an end to the financial roller coaster. The 1st and 2nd bring a boost to your bank account, as others are noticing your hard work. The Winter Solstice, occurring December 21st, brings new work your way—however, not without frustrations during the Full Moon on the 22nd. Use the end of December to balance out your priorities and not overwork yourself, as it may cause frustrations around the holidays.
Scorpio 
It’s been a wild ride for you fall, as work and money have been inconsistent. 2018 surely had its windfalls and highs. The end of 2018 brings success your way. With Mercury, who is moonwalking back onto your Sun on December 1st, and Venus aligning with your Sun on December 2nd, you have the chance to have a financial reboot. The New Moon, which occurs December 7th, falls in the financial sector of your chart, giving you a whole new attitude toward your finances, followed by Mercury hitting your money spot, adding bang to your wallet on the 12th.
Sagittarius 
Your financial lull may offset your holiday shopping, however, not your spirit. No one brings more pizzazz and energy to the party than you, Sag! This season, don’t let your Scroogey attitude affect your fun! The New Moon on the 7th allows you to be the most exciting version of yourself, as you bring holiday cheer to office events. Don’t stress about your bonus, you will be pleased with the bump in your paycheck on the 21st.
Capricorn 
You’ve been a busy bee all year, lovely sea-goat! However, December forces you to realign yourself, focusing more on centering your energies. Your professional life has consumed much energy and time, forcing you to make some cutbacks on December 7th. However, all the business cards and contacts you’ve acquired during holiday parties on the 1st and 7th will lead to a promising new position in the New Year, as others are focusing  their energy on acquiring your skill set.  
Aquarius
Your networking skills are on point this month, Aquarius! As we enter December, you start off the month receiving overdo praise on the professional front, leading to a substantial holiday bonus 7th. Be aware, your colleagues may feel a ping of jealousy, as your score office praise and fancy presents during your office holiday party.
Pisces 
The New Moon occurring December 7th kicks up your determination for success at work. However, with Mars and Neptune aligning with your Sun, you may second guess your goals, due to deep seeded paranoias. Don’t let fear hold you back. Stepping into your new role at work with ease will boost up your finances on the 16th, allowing you to end the year with more money on the 31st.

Full Moon in Virgo Reflections

Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 2.06.50 PM

Theme for this Full Moon = PUMPED.

This Full Moon is 11 degrees Virgo, which amplifies it’s energy with the use of a power number. We’re feeling a lot of energetic shifts, especially if you consider where Virgo lies on your astrological birth chart.

So, coming into this Full Moon I had just arrived back from vacation on a Red Eye. And even though I still work on vacation, or I schedule posts/ emails so I have some free time, I always come back feeling like I haven’t done enough. I get this sinking feeling that taking time for myself has been a detriment and I have ruined everything I built by going away for a few days. I freak out and my anxiety bubbles up and then…

Shame.

Guilt. Nervousness. All recipes for self sabotage. And why? Because I took a break to see my family?? No no, now it’s time to rewrite the narrative.

If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you know that personal development is 24/7 work. And running a business effectively is contingent on your own self care. Nothing you grow will flower from dead soil. So since I have been cataloging my journey, even I have down periods where I don’t follow my own WitchyWisdoms.

But I have noticed incredible progress. What used to be down periods of weeks, or even months, my down period this time was 12 hours. That’s it. 12 hours of lying in bed, binge watching Netflix (because every human deserves to be human) and then I woke up, meditated, and got back on the damn horse.

And guess what? Nothing in the world changed! All of that anxiety was self inflicted, and even though it could have been avoided, I’m grateful that it only lasted half a day. Progress is progress, and even baby steps move you forward.

And compared to a few years ago, these baby steps got me out the house and down the street!

I feel a lot of the Devil coming in to running my own business. It’s a lot of obsession over doing things all the time, right away. So to curtail that, I have set up a set schedule within my morning routine. Since my phone is my primary tool for work, I don’t use it at least one hour before bed and one hour after I wake up. I have two complete hours for me. Because guess what? Those clients can wait. I need to be fully me to serve, so in the end, they’ll thank me for waiting.

It was also very important to me to stick to a routine while I was away. Sometimes I have a tendency to have too much fun, or sleep to late, or eat the wrong foods just “because I’m on vacation.” But waking up with my morning ritual helps to set a pace of mindfulness throughout the day so I don’t go off the rails. If you throw everything to the wind because you have an excuse, you’re setting yourself up for disaster.

The last time I went away to California, it took be a couple weeks to bounce back. But today, I’m feeling ripe and ready for action. Yesterday was fabulous, today was fabulous, and tomorrow will be fabulous as well. And I can attribute that to this Full Moon in Virgo, which lights up my 12th house, and has to do with closure and spirituality. Gone are the days of endless self sabotage with a spiral and a freak out. I have honored my healing, I know what it takes, and I stay on top of it.

Tonight will be WitchTastic with a Full Moon bath, manifestation spells, and a lot of healing love from Mother Spirit.

Stay on top of yourself, keep yourself accountable, and stay witchy ( *)
