Kristin Fontana's weekly starcast
Week of Wednesday, December 17
Kristin Fontana immersed herself in Western medicine in her 20's, and by her Saturn return was hit hard with the all consuming feeling "There must be more to life than this." After arduous Soul-searching and inner pleas to answer the question,"Why am I here?", she landed in a lecture given by Jeffrey Wolf Green on Easter Sunday 1999. She dove fast, hard and deep into Evolutionary Astrology and never looked back. Kristin has dedicated her life to this great work of the Soul using this unique and powerful paradigm. She specializes in helping Souls connect with their creative life purpose and in uncovering their true nature. She is also deeply moved to help unearth the true power of the feminine in all of us. She is available for readings and can be reached by email. Her website is www.kristinfontana.com

As we approach a new moon in Capricorn, which also happens to be on the same day as Winter Solstice, Sunday, Dec. Dec. 21, your ruler Mars is syncing up electrically with Uranus, to give your Soul a fresh surge of something liberating and new, specifically linked with your world of career. However this also includes anything contractually binding, it may reflect a time when there is an opportunity to usher in new life into old arrangements. In fact, something so much more desirable may occur, that it allows you to finally close a certain door or tiring old chapter. Venus, the planet of relationships and all those things you value most, forms a square to the nodes, the symbols that represent your past and your future, so you will be weighing the benefits and the drawbacks with respect to key contracts, in love and money, and then will be making a move accordingly. Life is short, and simply too sweet, to waste a moment on anything that is not bringing meaning and offering growth to the journey of your Soul.
Make your evolution matter!
As the family holidays approach, life will have a way of weighing on you with a greater sense of Soul gravity, as your ruler Venus joins Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn, to remind you how vital every step, every word and every turn is to your own evolutionary path. A stellium of planets line up in fellow earth sign Capricorn, including a new moon on Sunday, Dec. 21, the day of Winter Solstice. Venus will also be forming a square to the nodal axes, representing your past and your future, which will have you focusing a great deal on how to get the greatest bang for your buck. There is a re-balancing of focus that is needed in your life now Taurus, I know you do not need me to remind you what that is, but the cosmic tuning fork is now in place to help you make certain key adjustments, so your bottom line needs, in love and finances, can be met. Mars is in position to help you brainstorm in your world of work as he connects with ease to Uranus, in your house of dreams. So limit yourself not, and swing open your inner doors.
It doesn’t get bigger than this. Life won’t feel more real than it does now, as a team of planets in Capricorn, including your ruler Mercury, fill your house of the Soul this week. Nothing will allow you to stay on the surface even if you wanted to, as the energy in place is drawing you all the way in. There will be times that you will want to resist the pull, in part because you have no idea exactly where it will lead. However, a new moon in Capricorn on Winter Solstice, Sunday, Dec.21, is a beautiful symbol for the return of the light and like a lotus opening, so shall you, opening to the light and the depth of new life that the universe is offering. The flicker and the spark starts within, and from there you fan the flames of awareness and desire as Mars and Uranus combine to shine a light on your individual path of truth. The playful Gemini is about to become ever so serious and yet determined to take life, including all of your connections, to greater depths of being, for this is where true meaning lives.
Remove your energy from those who can’t meet you, not just half way, but all the way there!
It has been said, that “Only in the darkness can the light be found”. This feels so fitting as we approach the dark of the moon, your ruler, a new moon in Capricorn, Sunday, Dec.21, the day of Winter Solstice. This lunar event occurs in your house of relationships, allowing you to climb higher on the mountain of maturation, committing more completely, emotionally and otherwise, to the ones you love. It is also about taking personal responsibility for your part of wherever there have been struggles and making a commitment to step in with more of your whole and holy self. It is an ideal day to put the past to rest and to open your inner blinds and windows so more light and more life can stream in. Mars in your house of the Soul is forming a head turning angle to Uranus in your house of career, causing it to take off with unexpected speed or otherwise inviting in an opportunity for advancement where you least expect. The timing may feel to be a bit crazy with the holidays in place, but you are up for the challenge, and this will be something you will want to sink your teeth into.
Either way, a good break or a work benefit is soon to land in your lap!
Something’s got to give, or someone that is, and who better to do it than you. A certain story is going to pull your attention toward those in need this week Leo. There is something about this time of year where hearts are full and worries are high and as a generous Leonian, you are going to be pulling hard for the underdog and wanting to do what you can to help those who can’t help them self. It can be impossible to enjoy something sweet when you are laden with other people’s suffering, and the way to ease this weight is to actively participate and contribute toward a cause of some form that will make the lives of others less fortunate, far better. Nobody knows how to give like you do Leo, in spirit and in gesture. All it will take is a simple extended hand and it will change a hard current in someone’s reality. With a choir of planets in Capricorn this week, including a new moon on Sunday, Dec.21, also the day of Winter Solstice, there can be a high degree of focus on what may be lacking, in your life or in the world. It may also be keeping your mind active on areas where you would like to improve and clean up your own habits and health.
With Mars and Uranus in tandem, you can become a quick-change artist, for whatever desire you pursue, know that whether it is to kick a bad habit or to improve a love connection, your efforts will be as good as gold!
“If there is a will, there is always a way”, and this could not be more true this week as Mars finds a way to pick a cosmic lock when connecting with ease to Uranus in your house of the Soul. Something that had been emotionally taking you over, will be released this week when your desire to take charge of a certain sort of change becomes your greatest focus. A string of planets combine in fellow earth sign Capricorn on Winter Solstice, Sunday, Dec 21, opening your heart’s door and strengthening your inner base. A new moon in Capricorn is joined by Mercury, Venus, as well as Pluto to help empower you by reminding you what you bring to life’s table. With Venus also squaring the nodes, those symbols that connect to your past and your future, you may be wrestling with letting an old attachment go, but this is about removing anything that is not giving back to you in equal measure. If you want to feel valued, then start with loving your purest self, and then only give to those who recognize and appreciate your divine self.
Once their shadow is gone, your light will be seen by all!
Home is where the heart lives and breathes, it is where the Soul is nurtured and fed and when anyone that you love and long for is absent, especially during the holidays, it can feel like a hollow place. This Sunday, Dec.21, the day of the Winter Solstice, a new moon in Capricorn is joined by Mercury, your ruler Venus, as well as Pluto, in your house of home and the emotional body. Your entire focus and priority is going to be about family and feeding those aches of old. Anything that means anything to you will have your undivided attention, as you gather with loved ones and reminisce about days gone by. Fortunately Mars, the planet of action and desire, will harmonize brilliantly with Uranus, in your house of relationships, to invite in some spontaneous outings and perhaps a taste of adventure which will promptly get you back into a better spirit. There will be at least one connection, but very possibly more, that will have a way of moving you beautifully forward, lifting you out of a low feeling slump.
You are going to be craving novelty and new environments that create a charge to your heart, and ultimately that is just what you are gonna get!
