potentially adding complexity, delays, miscues, or misunderstandings to the holiday season.

As always, awareness is key and can help alleviate stress and tension. Allowing more time for tasks and travel will help, as will simplifying routines and adjusting expectations of yourself and others. It might be wise to revisit or repeat celebrations that have worked well in the past. It could be very satisfying to spend some time reflecting on the past year or turning toward any year-end organizing and sorting activities.

The Full Moon in Cancer

on Boxing Day, December 26 at 6:33pm CT could heighten emotions even further. Part of the challenge/opportunity of full-moon cycles is to feel our feelings more fully, and if they’ve been bottled up, they could spill out in uneven or unruly displays. Unresolved family patterns could also come to a head at this time, especially with the push-pull of work and personal demands. The goal is to strive for balance in both sectors of our lives, realizing that we won’t do either perfectly.
