What a wild ride 2022 has been, after two years deep in a life changing pandemic, we’ve been able to start taking steps out of a life with so many restrictions (depending on the reality of each part of the world) and step into a life where enjoying the outside world and planning for a future seems more tangible. None of us are the same as who we were three years ago, the collective trauma is real, but so are the ways in which we’re thriving to heal and mend, collectively and individually.

We start December with nebulous Neptune going direct in Pisces on the 3rd, sparking our imaginations and our ability to dream. During the past five months you’ve been able to tap into what’s truly valuable to you. You’ve also been able to release the intellect a little bit in order to make more space for your intuition. As you move forward, don’t forget about this. If you feel it in your guts and in your bones, pay attention to it.

On the 6th, Mercury, the messenger, leaves the expansive fire of Sagittarius, to enter the earthy focus of Capricorn, followed by Venus, the goddess of love, doing the same on the 9th. This happens in the most hidden chambers of your life, leading you towards quiet and hibernation. Things will begin to unfold in your inner landscapes, and this process will require rest and moments of solitude, even away from social media.

The last Full Moon of 2022 is happening in Gemini on the 7th at 11:08 pm EST, reminding us, in the midst of so much chatter, to be in deep exchange with ourselves. Illuminating your area of creative self-expression, romance, your inner child and the children in your life, this Full Moon will fill you with energy. What are you realizing about the need to balance social obligations with your personal creative projects? Don’t disregard the power of your self-expression, and its ability to open pathways towards partnerships.

On the 20th, Jupiter leaves Pisces for good and will enter Aries, starting a new twelve year cycle of expansion and wisdom around the zodiac. Life’s daily pace will speed up. Make sure not to overextend your energy levels wanting to do every single thing on your to-do list. This is a time to get things done, but also to cultivate moments of rest and rituals of renewal.

We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st! Beginning with the winter solstice, the sun’s journey through Capricorn reminds us of the power of our commitments. Followed by the last New Moon of the year happening in Capricorn on the 23rd at 5:17 am EST, bringing a breath of fresh air into your inner realm. Make a ritual out of resetting your body, mind and spirit. Make a ritual out of taking a day off to let go, release, and make space for your feelings to be felt.

On the 23rd, Chiron, the wounded healer, will be going direct in Aries in your area of communication, exchange and daily activities. The cure you seek may be hiding in the books you read, the podcasts you listen to, or the casual conversations that come up in your day-to-day life.

2022 comes to an end with Mercury going retrograde in Capricorn on the 29th. The end of the year will be asking us to review our commitments, to see how much we truly want to be invested in them. Keep this in mind when making your new year’s resolutions. In your case there will be a special focus on your inner world, your need for rest and renewal, your dreams, your intuition, the depths of your feelings, and letting go of what no longer serves.
