Remember Rosie the Riveter? The iconic WWII factory worker flexing her arm muscle beneath the slogan “We Can Do It”? She’s your role model the first half of December. This time it’s more than the usual frenzy of holiday prep and wrapping up the year. This one comes with super-hero-level determination to push unfinished business forward, and probably shove some folks along, too.
It’s enough to leave you exhausted and whimpering in the kitchen while everyone around you is making Hallmark memories. That’s so not you now, though. Summon your inner Rosie and channel the pressures (largely self-imposed, ahem) into phenomenal productivity. Hormonal surges? Pent up frustration and anger? Why, yes, they’ll do nicely as fuel; about time something useful came from them.
No silent suffering, either. Speak up, delegate and drop the topic. The stars have something quite other than micro-managing in store. Cosmic hands are on your back propelling you into a different paradigm for everything from relationship ground rules to traditions to long-term goals to the very foundation of your life. Turns out old dogs can learn new tricks, and you’ll be breaking them in like crazy.
That you’re in that process will dawn on you in the month’s second half, when you get to go to your own party for a change. Mommy Moon (aka a full moon in Cancer) rules the roost at Christmas. Whether you celebrate or not, the days around it promise to be more sweet and cozy than the whirlwind leading to it will have you believe.
This year’s magic comes with the awareness that it is fleeting, and not just because Seals & Crofts’ “We May Never Pass This Way Again” keeps slipping into the holiday playlist. An era is ending. Enjoy its last hurrah. Celebrate it. Sort through it and decide what bits to carry with you when the clock strikes midnight on the 31st. Toast the old and then the new. Throw in a toast for Rosie while you’re at it.
