Virgo Horoscope December 2022

Virgo horoscope December 2022, flower, sacred geometry

Your ruling planet Mercury is in Sagittarius and your home and family sector as December begins. The planet of relating Venus is here until the 10th and the Sun until the 21st. This suggests that you’ll be getting together with family or be opening your doors to other people in the run-up to the festive period.

Gemini Full Moon

The peak time for family matters is during the Full Moon on the 8th. This Full Moon cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope.

You might be busy organising family or be getting the house ready for the festive period. Don’t overdo things, however, otherwise it could quickly become exhausting rather than enjoyable. Full Moons are often a time of heightened emotions and can coincide with drama.

This could be true because during the Full Moon, retrograde Mars in Gemini opposes the Sun in Sagittarius and sits in a tight conjunction with the Moon. This combination often flags up the possibility of opposition to your plans or strong competition. This may be evident on the 1st too, when Venus opposes Mars, the lovers of the heavens eyeing one another from opposite sides of the zodiac.

Yes, Mars can be passionate but there is a flip side to Mars as it’s the planet of anger. You might feel frustrated with the one you love or vice versa. At the very least, this could bring an opportunity to clear the air to help resolve any issues between you.

You may find that the in-laws or a partner and your family are not seeing eye-to-eye. You might be overly busy with work or career matters. Or, perhaps you’re currently unemployed and any frustration could leak out on the ones you love. Mars retrograde can indicate an imbalance.

There is an added factor in the shape of Neptune square to Venus on the 4th and the Sun on the 14th. At its best, this is fairytale romance when you enjoy losing yourself in love and falling in love is blissful and enchanting.

Yet, a square aspect often indicates some form of soul-searching, when you may be chasing an elusive dream. If you’re not in a relationship, this could be a wistful time for you when you dearly would love to have someone special in your life. The run-up to the festive period could be especially emotional for you.

Earth Sign Energy

What does help you throughout December is the fact that earth sign energy begins to dominate. Being a Virgo, you’re one of three earth signs. And, when planets are in your element, there’s a natural flow in your astrology.

Your ruler Mercury is the first to enter earth sign Capricorn on the 6th followed by Venus on the 10th and the Sun on the 21st. The Sun’s move into Capricorn heralds the Solstice. Plus, two days later, there’s a New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd. This is an ideal time to set your intentions and to start over if it’s been a bumpy few weeks.

Capricorn rules play rather than work in your horoscope. Therefore, if you get a chance to take a step back and pace yourself throughout December, this might be the best option.

Certainly, it’s a promising time to focus on all the things in your life that you love, whether it’s romance, children, entertainment or fun. The more you put personal issues to one side and aim to enjoy yourself, the more your spirits are likely to soar.

Jupiter Joy

There’s big news towards the end of the month as big planet Jupiter is on the move. Jupiter leaves your opposite star sign Pisces and moves into fire sign Aries on the 20th. Jupiter’s already been in Aries from May 10th to October 28th and will remain here until May 16, 2023.

Jupiter’s the planet of luck and opportunity and is associated with plenty. It’s the planet linked to freedom. Even though Jupiter leaves Pisces and your relationship sector and enters Aries, the focus remains on other people. In particular, joint finances and shared resources.

For example, this could be the settling-down period, when you create a joint bank account and learn to live alongside your partner day-to-day. Aries represents the sector of your horoscope that’s linked to sex and intimacy. It may be a time when you’re thinking about these key issues and what you want when it comes to love.

This doesn’t only apply to a personal relationship. For example, you might be ready to start a business partnership or work alongside another person in a specific role in your life, e.g. lawyer, an agent, a personal trainer, a therapist, a coach.

When Jupiter’s in Aries, it’s the perfect time to get expert advice, especially when it comes to finances or legal matters. Jupiter’s a global planet so there are no restrictions and you can expand your circle of expertise.

You may discover more about what Jupiter in Aries will bring on the 20th. Also, the 29th when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries. This lovely pairing will be visible in the night sky and it’s an ideal time to make a wish.

There could be a celebration, a bonus or gift or an opportunity to boost your cash flow, your investments or clear a debt. The key is to work alongside other people and not go it alone.

Mercury Retrograde

It is important to note, however, that your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 29th and will remain on go slow until January 18, 2023.

Therefore, don’t run before you can walk. Perhaps, you need to be aware that learning a new skill takes time. Know that with Mercury in retreat, you may have to go backwards before you can go forwards. Or, you find it hard to get hold of the right person and have to play a waiting game.

What Mercury retrograde is good for is learning and research, reviewing and revising your plans. An ideal way of spending the Mercury retrograde phase is to retreat and wind down so you can find a new perspective. Some plans may unravel during the Mercury retrograde phase but be flexible and give other people the benefit of the doubt.

You could reconnect with someone from your past during this Mercury retrograde phase. For example, a childhood sweetheart. Or, someone who played a key role in your upbringing.

You may be rethinking what fun means to you while Mercury’s in retreat. Or, perhaps you’re returning to a past hobby or creative activity. If there’s a love decision to make, you’re wise to wait until Mercury turns direct.

Yet, there is a promise of love and fulfilment over the festive period. This is because Mercury switches direction conjunct Venus and in a lovely connection to Neptune in Pisces.

Mercury & Neptune dominate on Christmas Day, December 25th, and are focal during the last week of the year. It’s a cosmic reminder to put bad feelings to one side, practise forgiveness and appreciative the love you share with other people.

Leo Horoscope December 2022

Leo horoscope December 2022, mandala

The Sun is shining brightly in your fellow fire sign Sagittarius as December begins. It remains here until the 21st and this is a dominant feature for you in the month ahead.

On the one hand, it’s about partying and having fun and throwing yourself into the festivities. Your star sign Leo has a child-like quality and it’s a great time to be with children and let your inner child out to play. Line up some entertainment and make the most of enjoyable events taking place.

Romance too is on the agenda as Sagittarius rules love affairs in your horoscope. And, the planet of love and relating Venus is in Sagittarius until the 10th. What is wise, however, is to aim to keep love steady as your partner planet Saturn is playing a supportive role on the 2nd and 12th.

Gemini Full Moon

The major astrology while the Sun is in Sagittarius is the powerful Full Moon on the 8th which falls in Gemini and your friendship sector. Full Moons are traditionally a time of celebration and you may be out partying and having fun.

This could be a dramatic Full Moon, however, because it pulls in retrograde Mars in Gemini. Mars opposes Venus on the 1st and, on the day of the Full Moon, Mars opposes your ruler the Sun and sits in a tight conjunction to the Moon.

This could play out in one of two ways. It may be an exceptionally passionate Full Moon for you. Alternatively, it could be angry and trigger an argument or falling-out. Be aware that it could go either way.

Capricorn – Work & Health

On the 21st, your ruler the Sun moves into earth sign Capricorn and your work and health sector. Two days later on the 23rd, there’s a New Moon here, a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal time to set new intentions.

If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends throughout December, you might be more than ready to slow down a little in preparation for the festive period.

What will help you in the run up to Christmas is team work and delegation. This is because communication planet Mercury is in Capricorn from the 6th and the planet of relating Venus enters Capricorn on the 10th.

This is a sign not to go it alone but to lean on other people and gather support around you. This may relate to your work or your routine if you’re in charge of the festivities.

The 17th & 22nd could be stand-out dates when both Mercury & Venus align with spontaneous Uranus in Taurus and your career and future sector.

This might be when you can gain some freedom from work or everyday chores. Or, perhaps a new opportunity comes your way. If so, it’s worth taking note of and finding out more.

Jupiter Joy

There’s a major planetary shift in the heavens towards the end of month which spells good news for you. This involves the planet of opportunity Jupiter returning to your fellow fire sign Aries on the 20th. Jupiter was in Aries earlier this year from May 10th to October 28th. Jupiter completes its journey through Aries on May 16, 2023.

Aries is the star sign that rules the bigger picture sector of your horoscope. Therefore, this may offer you an opportunity to start a new adventure. Jupiter rules travel, study, philosophy, spirituality and any activity that expands your horizons and broadens your experience of life.

There’s a feel-good factor to Jupiter in Aries which boosts your desire to be bold or take a leap of faith. Make fun and joy high priorities moving into 2023. Think of work as play, discover your passion and enjoy what you do.

If you want to travel abroad or live in another country, if you want to take a sabbatical from work and explore a new direction, it starts with believing and knowing that anything’s possible.

This could be a wonderful opportunity to think globally, expand your network and reach out to other people in different countries and cultures. Jupiter rules publishing, the Law, truth and humanity.

Notice what happens on the 20th, the day Jupiter shifts star sign. Also, the 29th when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries which will be visible in the night sky. It’s a lovely time to make a wish.

Be open to new opportunities and say yes to new experiences. The events that take place could help signpost your way forward in the year ahead.

Mercury Retrograde

There is no rush, however, because communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 29th and remains on go slow until January 18, 2023. Take your time as one year ends and a new year begins. The best way to use Mercury retrograde is to turn inwards or take yourself off somewhere completely different.

Talk planet Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn and a practical sector of your horoscope. This indicates that you’re wise to rethink work and routine matters while Mercury’s in retreat.

What Mercury retrograde is good for is going with the flow and adopting a slower pace. Sometimes, there’s a theme of second chances and trying again if things didn’t work out in the past, especially linked to your work, lifestyle or health.

You could go back to an old job and it’s an excellent time to rework and revise your plans. Be kind to yourself and do whatever’s necessary to lower your stress levels.

Mercury teams up with Neptune as it switches direction and this planetary aspect perfects on Christmas Day, December 25th. This is about caring for yourself and others. There may be a theme of service, sacrifice or surrender in your life and this is a spiritual connection. Do whatever feels right for you to honour the end of one year and the beginning of a new year.

Cancer Horoscope December 2022

Cancer horoscope December 2022, sacred geometry

There’s plenty of excitement as the month begins in the star sign Sagittarius and the sector of your horoscope which rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and health.

You might be in busy mode and want to get things organised in readiness for the festive season. Talk planet Mercury is here until the 6th, the planet of relating Venus until the 10th and the Sun until the 21st.

Gemini Full Moon

The most important date, however, is the 8th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. Full Moons can be revealing when the light of the Moon is at its brightest. Sagittarius pulls you out into the world keeping you busy, while Gemini is about retreat and inner work.

During this Full Moon, you could feel overstretched or out of balance. Retrograde Mars is in action during this period as it opposes the Sun and sits in a tight conjunction to the Moon. Emotions are always heightened during the Full Moon phase and this one feels dramatic.

You might be up against opposition or feel stressed if there are too many demands upon you. Another date to note is the 1st when there’s a Venus-Mars clash. You might be taking on too much for financial reasons, to steady the boat. If you are digging in deep, make a conscious effort to take an active step back once the Full Moon energy has been and gone.

It does look as if you have your head in the clouds for some of the time during December. You may be questioning what you’re doing and why. If you’re dissatisfied with a current position or role, this will intensify throughout the month.

Being one of the water signs, you have a vast emotional range. As Neptune in Pisces is dominant this month, the key dates being the 4th & 14th, expect your mind to wander and your emotions to ebb and flow more than usual.

Try not to lose yourself in your daydreams or fantasy realm. Instead, use your imagination and seek out activities which inspire you, for example, music, art or poetry.

Pisces rules one of the spiritual and religious sectors of your horoscope. You may be questioning your faith or want something to believe in. Explore this too and see where life leads you.

Loving Relationships

Even though some relationships may be rocky, December is potentially a big month for love and this is blissful news for you. Most importantly, the planet of love Venus enters Capricorn and your relationship sector on the 10th, joining talk planet Mercury here.

This brings a soft, gentleness to your one-to-one’s and suggests some loving moments coming your way. The 22nd could prove exciting when Venus teams up with spontaneous Uranus. This combination links love and friendship.

The Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice. This is swiftly followed by a New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd, an ideal time to set your intentions around love and partnership. If you want or need more support over the festive period, speak up.

Jupiter Joy

The big news towards the end of the month is the planet of luck and opportunity Jupiter returning to Aries and your career and vocation sector on the 20th. Jupiter’s already been here from May 10th to October 28th and Jupiter will remain in Aries until May 16, 2023.

Jupiter in your career and success sector can boost your ambitions. Here’s your chance to play big, fly high and expand your horizons. Jupiter not only represents opportunity, growth and expansion but is the free spirit, the entrepreneur.

Plus, Jupiter connects you with the world as it’s the global planet. Plan work abroad or take a sabbatical to study something you’ve always dreamed about. Leave the 9-to-5 behind and go freelance or set up your own business. It’s your choice but the opportunity is there, whatever your personal vision.

Notice what happens on or around the 20th when Jupiter moves into Aries. Also, on the 29th, when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries. This lovely pairing will be visible in the night sky and it’s an ideal time to make a wish.

Think back twelve years ago when Jupiter was last in this sector of your horoscope – 2010/11. Consider what was happening then and how to use this powerful Jupiter transit to the best of your ability.

Mercury Retrograde

Finally, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn and your relationship sector on the 29th. Mercury remains on go slow until January 18, 2023. Therefore, be patient and trust that good things come to those who wait.

Sometimes, other people go quiet on you while Mercury’s retrograde in your relationship sector. Alternatively, you may change your mind about love or a business partnership. Or, you may have to follow rather than lead.

Mercury retrograde can flag up a theme of misunderstandings, so it’s a good time to take a step back and take the pace slow if necessary in your close relationships. Don’t feel you have to rush into any big decisions during the retrograde phase.

Instead, use this time to review your situation and think things through rather than leap into action. When it comes to other people, let things be rather than actively try to sort things out.

Once Mercury turns direct, then you’re wise to reopen the lines of communication and make up your mind when it comes to love, passion and relationships.

What is lovely for you is the fact that Mercury aligns with Neptune on December 25th. In fact, these two planets are closely connected during the last week of the year. If you’re somewhere exotic with a loved one, this would be perfect.

This is also a symbol of forgiveness and a reminder that people count. Prioritise loving connections over Christmas before anything else.

Gemini Horoscope December 2022

Gemini horoscope December 2022, mandalas

Your ruling planet Mercury starts the month in your opposite star sign Sagittarius where it remains until the 6th. This highlights your relationships, both personal and professional. It’s about your one-to-one’s, including your enemies as well as your sweethearts. The planet of love and relating Venus is also here up until the 10th.

Gemini Full Moon

The pivotal date, however, is the Full Moon on the 8th, the only Full Moon in your star sign Gemini all year. This Full Moon cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and lights up your personal and relationship sectors.

This could be a pivotal moment for your one-to-one’s. Full Moons often coincide with drama as they heighten emotions and the light of moon brings clarity. Plus, during this Full Moon, retrograde Mars in Gemini opposes the Sun and sits in a tight conjunction to the Moon. Mars is also in feisty mood on the 1st when it opposes the planet of relating Venus.

This does suggest some kind of opposition or competition in your life. A tricky relationship could cause issues and it’s going to be hard to avoid a personal challenge. Mars may be retrograde but it’s still a spark, a trigger for action. If you’re feeling angry, you may not be able to hold your tongue during the Full Moon phase.

The other possibility, however, is that this is a passionate Full Moon for you, especially if you reconnect with someone from your past.

Earth Sign Energy

Mercury’s move into Capricorn on the 6th is a sign to focus more on money matters and stability, rather than emotional drama. Venus is a steady influence in Capricorn from the 10th and the Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice.

Capricorn rules joint finances in your horoscope and this is about team work and sharing resources. It would be a good time to plan your budget for 2023 and look at ways of improving your finances or paying off debt. The earth signs encourage you to have a long-term goal and to work towards it. Taking small steps on a regular basis can pay off.

The 17th could be a stand-out date in this respect when your ruler Mercury teams up with spontaneous Uranus. There could be a gift or bonus that comes your way. Or, perhaps your financial situation is boosted because of your connections with the past.

Be firm about spending over the festive period and encourage friends and family to do what’s right for everyone. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd is a positive date to set your intentions around money and wealth.

Jupiter Joy

Big news towards the end of the month is big planet Jupiter on the move. On the 20th, Jupiter leaves Pisces, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope, representing your career and vocation, your status and reputation. You might be ready to loosen the ties that bind or change your path moving forward.

Jupiter moves into fire sign Aries where it’s been previously from May 10th to October 28th. This time around, Jupiter remains in Aries until May 16, 2023.

This feels bright and breezy for you as Aries rules friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network. It’s about finding people of like minds and making sure that your social life is not only fun but supportive too.

Bring new friends into your life by enjoying new activities and make an effort to catch up with old friends. Jupiter will create the opportunities, perhaps through a friend’s wedding, anniversary or school reunion. All you need to do is say yes.

If you have built up a successful business while Jupiter’s been in Pisces or your career’s back on track, here’s your chance to take what you do out into the wider world and get people on board who can help you. Jupiter in Aries is about gathering people around you, a team or people of like minds who can work with you and make life easier, more enjoyable and fun.

Key dates are the 20th when Jupiter moves into Aries and the 29th when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction. You’ll see this lovely pairing in the night sky and it’s an ideal time to make a wish. Take note of any new opportunities that come your way on or around these key dates and arrange some social get-togethers.

Mercury Retrograde

There is one astrological indication, however, which suggests that you’re wise to slow down the pace as the year comes to an end. This is the fact that your planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 29th and remains on go slow until January 18, 2023.

When Mercury turns retrograde, this can sometimes throw a spanner in the works. It means you’re wise to be patient and wait for an opportunity to come to you rather than rushing in. Mercury retrograde is good for planning and doing research.

Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn and your joint finance sector. While Mercury’s in retreat, you’re wise to safeguard your finances and not be persuaded to part with your money.

It’s not a great time for major investments or signing a contract that affects you financially. If you can delay doing so until Mercury turns direct on January 18th, hang on in there.

What is lovely for you is the fact that Mercury switches direction in a lovely planetary aspect with Neptune. This combination is active on Christmas Day, December 25th, a symbol of trust and faith in life.

It’s a reminder to focus on the spiritual aspect of the festivities and not to fall into the trap of commercialism. There could also be help from someone close on the day Mercury switches direction, the 29th.

Taurus Horoscope December 2022

Taurus horoscope December 2022, kaleidoscope

Money is under the cosmic spotlight as the month begins with a host of planets moving through Sagittarius and your joint finance sector. Talk planet Mercury is here until the 6th, your ruling planet Venus is here until the 10th and the Sun is in Sagittarius until the 21st.

It’s a positive period to focus on money and look ahead. Sagittarius is a visionary star sign, ideal for long-term planning. At its best, this is a period when you could receive a gift or bonus. Or, perhaps you have a big dream about improving your wealth or attracting abundance into your life.

Gemini Full Moon

The peak period for money matters is the 8th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and the financial axis of your horoscope. A Full Moon can be a time of clarity or illumination when the Moon’s at its brightest.

Leading up to and during this Full Moon, however, retrograde Mars is in feisty mood. On the 1st, Mars opposes your ruler Venus. Plus, on the day of the Full Moon, Mars opposes the Sun and sits in a tight conjunction next to the Moon.

Emotions are always heightened during the Full Moon period but this feels dramatic. You could end up in an argument over money, perhaps with someone close to you. Be wary of scams or fraud during this period and hold tight to your hard-earned cash. Mars retrograde in Gemini has a sneaky feel about it, an element of the trickster.

As a Sun Taurus, you have oodles of common sense and down-to-earth practical ability. Therefore, keep hold of your earth sign nature and don’t give into bullying tactics around money. It’s not the best time to mix money with friendship.

Get expert advice where necessary and be savvy around spending. If you’re in the mood to be generous, give generously. If you’re in a position where you need to rein in your spending, be firm about your budget on the run-up to the festive period.

The Bigger Picture

This is a good month, however, to focus your gaze on 2023. This is because of the emphasis on your fellow earth sign of Capricorn. It may feel easier once the inner planets move into Capricorn, especially your ruler Venus on the 10th. This is a good time to work on your long-term goals and line up some new adventures for the year ahead.

Venus in Capricorn is about the bigger picture in life and travelling far and wide to seek fulfilment or knowledge. It’s about discovering your purpose and what gives your life meaning. Draw up a wish list for 2023, consider your qualifications and what you want to learn or know more about.

The Sun joins the inner planets Mercury & Venus in Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Plus two days later, there’s a New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd, an ideal time to set your intentions or set off on a journey.

The peak date could be the 22nd which may bring a lovely surprise your way when Venus aligns with the planet of surprises Uranus in your star sign Taurus.

Jupiter Joy

Big planet Jupiter is also on the move this month entering fire sign Aries on the 20th. Jupiter’s already been in this sector of your horoscope from May 10th to October 28th and will remain here until May 16, 2023.

Jupiter’s move into Aries turns your attention to the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This is your opportunity to focus on your inner world, develop your spirituality, your trust and faith in life and the universe.

You may see more clearly the connection between mind, body and spirit. You could benefit by going on retreat or allowing more silence and solitude into your life. Quiet times may be nourishing and nurturing for you.

This could be a peak time for self-care or caring for others. Notice what happens on or around the 20th when Jupiter changes star sign. Also, the 29th, when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries. This lovely pairing will be visible in the night sky and the perfect time to make a wish.

Mercury Retrograde

Finally, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 29th and remains on go slow until January 18, 2023. Therefore, as much as you might want to leap into new beginnings at the start of 2023, you’re wise to pace yourself.

Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn ruling travel and study in your horoscope. Therefore, you’re wise to get visas and paperwork sorted out for before Mercury switches direction. You may have to be extra flexible if you’re travelling or studying.

Travel may not be straightforward during this period, even if you are venturing out into the world. Double check everything and be willing to rethink or revise your options if necessary.

You can, however, use the Mercury retrograde phase to find inspiration and take time out from your routine. It could be a vivid time for dreams and journalling, learning and exploration. Explore philosophy, religion, spirituality, magic or mysticism and find your muse.

A lovely way to spend this Mercury retrograde phase is to go on holiday or on retreat, a similar vibe to Jupiter’s move into the most hidden sector of your horoscope.

Mercury also teams up with Neptune in Pisces over the festive period, a lovely symbol for forgiveness and celebrating with your dearest friends. And, as Mercury switches direction, it does so conjunct your ruling planet Venus. Someone may step in to help you. Or, perhaps love has a foreign feel.

Aries Horoscope December 2022

Aries December 2022 horoscope, mandala

Your ruling planet Mars has been retrograde in air sign Gemini for exactly one month. There’s another six weeks to go as December begins. Therefore, you may already have a sense of what this means for you and how it’s playing out for you.

Perhaps, you’re head down in a writing project as Gemini is the star sign of communication. Or, completely immersed in a community or neighbourhood initiative.

Traditionally, Mars retrograde means it’s time to take your foot off the accelerator and slow down the pace. Alternatively, you might be in a situation where you’re not the one in control or you’re up against opposition. Gemini rules siblings and neighbours in your horoscope.

As December begins, Mars opposes Venus in Sagittarius on the 1st and the Sun in Sagittarius on the 8th. These combinations feel competitive. Or, perhaps you’re under pressure to get things done.

Gemini Full Moon

The 8th is an important date for another reason because there’s a Full Moon in the sky. This Full Moon cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac, the education and learning axis of your horoscope, also ruling travel and new experiences.

Yet, there’s an edge to this Full Moon as your planet Mars is in a tight conjunction to the Moon and opposing the Sun. This might be about the things in life you can’t do. Or, you have a sense that you’re on the wrong path.

Also, Neptune is involved in a square aspect to the Full Moon and this can be disorienting as Neptune rules illusion. Mutable star sign energy is strong during this period in the month with key planets in Gemini, Sagittarius & Pisces.

You may find it harder than usual to make decisions. Or, perhaps you’re overthinking everything. Try to remain patient if this is true for you and do the best you can.

However, at its best, the Full Moon combination could feel enchanting and magical and take you beyond yourself. The focus isn’t strongly on you this month. It’s more about letting other people take the lead and finding answers in unusual places.

It is a good month to do things differently and explore new avenues & new experiences. Take advantage of what’s happening in a city or town close by and explore new events, perhaps linked to the festivities.

Ring the changes when you can, expand your horizons when you can and aim to become more involved with people from different backgrounds and cultures.

The clash during the Full Moon could be about opposing beliefs and principles, a conflict of ideologies. There may be some important learning that comes your way during the mid-month period.

Cardinal Power

If you’re feeling as if life is a bit of a muddle and a mess and your time management is out of the window, you’ll appreciate the shift in energy to the cardinal star sign Capricorn. Talk planet Mercury is here from the 6th, the planet of relating Venus from the 10th and the Sun from the 21st, the day of the Solstice.

Capricorn is the star sign at the peak of your horoscope and, as a Sun Aries, you’re a cardinal star sign. This planetary energy is easier for you to deal with as it’s direct and straightforward. You often find life easier when you have less options rather than more.

Plus, there’s a New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd. This is forward-moving and an ideal time to line up some long-term goals for the year ahead. Getting back in touch with your vision and purpose could help you reorient your compass towards the end of the year.

Jupiter Joy

The big news, however, is the fact that, on the 20th, the planet of luck, opportunity and good fortune Jupiter returns to your star sign Aries. Jupiter’s already been here from May 10th to October 28th. Jupiter will remain in Aries until May 16, 2023.

Expansive Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to circuit the zodiac so this event doesn’t happen every year. Jupiter’s the planet of freedom, allowing you to let go of the ties that bind and anything or anyone who holds you back.

When Jupiter’s in full flow, you want to see the world and save the world. Jupiter rules travel, education, spirituality, philosophy and philanthropic activities. What’s not advised when Jupiter’s strong in your chart is to play small or stay close to home. Jupiter rewards bold behaviour and loves the free-spirit, the explorer, the entrepreneur, the lover of life.

As Jupiter expands what it touches, be yourself and act with integrity. Jupiter rules the truth and humanity so be true to your beliefs, live life to the full and make the most of this special time.

Notice what takes place on or around the 20th when Jupiter moves into Aries. Also, the 29th when there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries – you’ll see this lucky pairing in the night sky. This would be an ideal period to travel or expand your horizons over the festive period.

Mercury Retrograde

Finally, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn on the 29th and remains on go slow until January 18, 2023. Therefore, even if new opportunities arise, it’s not the best time to rush in and make a major decision while Mercury’s in retreat.

This is because information is sometimes withheld or the truth isn’t forthcoming. Ideally, wait until Mercury turns direct mid-January before accepting an offer or finalising a job or career opportunity. This is when Mercury will turn direct in Capricorn and your career and vocation sector.

What Mercury retrograde is good for is retracing your steps or going over old ground. It flags up a theme of reconnecting or reworking your contacts or networks. You might get back in touch with an old boss or try again with an opportunity that didn’t come off first time around.

Your Christmas stars are encouraging you to rediscover your trust in life and have faith that things will work out the way they’re meant to. It’s the connections you make with other people that will mean the most.

It’s a pretty quiet week in the astrological skies, and the lunar influences will be more noticeable (scroll down for the details of the week). This is the end of the Sagittarius influences – next week Mercury and Venus will both enter Capricorn and pave the way for the Sun to move into Capricorn at the December Solstice on December 21st. Every change from one sign to the next brings a release of the matters of one sign and the introduction of something new, and from Sagittarius to Capricorn we transition from an expansive view of possibilities and optimism (Sagittarius) to a more focus and finely honed set of goals and objectives, with strategies for meeting those goals (Capricorn).

That’s what’s coming next week, but this week is the last of the buoyancy that Sagittarius brings and along with it, the tendency to overpromise and under-deliver.  With Ceres opposite Neptune having just peaked last week, we may not have the energy we think we do under the optimistic Sagittarius influences, so it’s a good week to conserve our energy while having a great time in the pursuit of Sagittarian happiness. Jupiter, the planetary ruler of Sagittarius, has just turned retrograde and is still virtually stationary in the sky making sure that we are looking for opportunities and the positive side to things. And Neptune, turning direct this week after a retrograde stint of about six months, is at a standstill with the siren call to experiences of magic and dreamy adventures which could bring bliss or ruin. Ideally the bliss part! At any rate, if you have planets between 20 and 25 degrees of the mutable signs (Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini), you will be most personally affected by this Neptunian week (although to be honest, you probably will have been affected for the past couple of months since Neptune has traveled less than two degrees since August.

Now, let’s look at the week ahead. Dates and times are for the Eastern time zone, please adjust for your locality.

Monday November 28. The  Moon begins the week in Aquarius causing us to chafe under too much structure. A harmonious Mars trine can help to energize and motivate our plans. Harmonious lunar aspects to facilitate new ideas and a sense of integration with the world. This would be a good time to plan something you’ve been putting off since there’s a new inspiration lurking around every corner. (Moon sextile Sun 8:05 am, Mars trine Saturn 5:55 pm, Moon sextile Chiron 6:17 pm.)

Tuesday November 29. The Aquarius Moon is quite busy in the early morning, awakening new neural pathways and interacting with five planets to stimulate an embrace of new ideas and patterns. A Mercury/Mars aspect could reveal difficulties in communication, especially with Mars retrograde in Mercury-ruled Gemini.  Or you may feel as though your mind is on fire with so many new ideas.

All of this stimulation may feel uncomfortable to earthy people who prefer stability, or to watery people who find change to be somewhat threatening, but learning to appreciate exhilaration is a worthy goal. Later in the day Mercury will stabilize and help corral the mind and thoughts. (Moon sextile Venus 12:39 am, square Uranus 12:48 am, sextile Mercury 4:25 am, trine Mars 6:30 am, conjunct Saturn 6:53 am, Mercury opposite Mars 8:30 pm.)

Wednesday November 30. The Moon enters Pisces just after midnight and the sparkly energy of the Aquarius Moon settles into our dreams and imagination. The next couple of days may not be the best time for focused work or decision making, but creative ventures will be highlighted here.

Our interactions could be more stressful than usual today due to a Venus/Mars aspect which culminates on Friday and sets our needs against those of others in our life. Finding a balance here will be helpful in avoiding problems later. A Mercury/Saturn aspect will help to ground and organize thoughts and plans.  (Moon enters Pisces 12:15 am, Mercury sextile Saturn 4:17 am, Moon square Sun 2:46 pm.)

Thursday December 1. Thursday is another busy day of planetary energies. The Venus/Mars aspect culminates around 5:30 am and will wane during the day, easing the pressure on our relationships. Meanwhile the Pisces Moon interacts with nearly every planet and we may find ourselves feeling buffeted by emotions and instincts which we don’t understand. Meanwhile, a building Mercury/Neptune aspect accentuates the lack of grounding but may offer creative solutions. As with any rough sea, finding our center and rocking in the boat will stave off seasickness.

(Moon sextile Uranus 3:57 am, Venus opposite Mars 5:27 am, Moon square Mars 8:42 am, Moon square Venus 9:07 am, Moon square Mercury 2:23 pm, Moon conjunct Neptune 3:35 pm, Moon opposite Ceres 7:27 pm, Moon sextile Mercury 10:58 pm.)

Friday December 2. The fog will begin to clear after midnight, and any tear in the fabric of our relationships has the potential to be mended today. Once the Moon leaves Pisces for Aries at 4:40 am the fire of Aries will help to burn through the remains of fog and confusion and strengthen our intention and ambition. (Mercury square Neptune 1:08 am, Moon conjunct Jupiter 2:44 am, Venus sextile Saturn 3:09 am, Moon enters Aries 4:40 am.)

Saturday December 3. There is nothing bad to say about the planetary energies on Saturday! Harmonious lunar aspects help to smooth any wrinkles that developed during the week, and the Aries Moon is supported by Mars, Saturn and Venus to inspire excitement and the thrill of taking action towards a bright future. Still, all of this excitement could exhaust our energy reserves, especially with Neptune stationing on Saturday,  so try to be sure to take some time to rest the mind and find that inner balance.

Venus and Neptune begin to combine in a challenging aspect which could heighten creativity, but also create confusion. This is especially true in our relationships, and with the Moon still in Aries things could get a bit rocky (this aspect culminates early on Sunday morning). (Moon trine Sun 12:09 am, conjunct Chiron 2:35 am, sextile Mars 1:11 pm, sextile Saturn 5:05 pm, trine Venus 8:56 pm, Mercury square Ceres 10:40 pm.)

Sunday December 4. The Aries Moon challenges Pluto just after midnight, which could make for a sleepless night depending on your time zone and will add to any relationship challenges which emerge. Fortunately, a beautiful trine from the Sun to Chiron will help to heal the rough edges and when the Moon enters Taurus at 6:37 am a blanket of peace will soften any challenges. (Moon square Pluto 12:46 am, Venus square Neptune 2:12 am, Sun trine Chiron 2:12 am, Moon enters Taurus 6:37 am.)

What a great way to end the week! ❤️
