Key themes: spaces of quiet, solitude, leadership and magnetism, connection to your body and your intuition, transformative conversations within your groups, routines that feel good

Dear Aquarius,

The month of December begins with Mercury moving into Capricorn on the 1st. The energy of Mercury in Capricorn in the deepest area of your chart will lead you towards much needed moments of quiet and hibernation. Your mind will get lost within your inner landscapes. Let it happen, much will be uncovered, especially during the retrograde period. This process will require rest and moments of solitude, and time away from social media.

Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will enter the depths of Scorpio on the 4th, where it will be until the 29th. This happens in your area of career and long-term goals. This is a time for you to shine within your professional life. Reach out to the ones that can help catapult your ambitions to the next level. Your leadership will be noticed, and your magnetism and charm will be on fire.

Neptune will go direct on the 6th in Pisces, where it has been helping you connect with what truly holds value. It has been a wild ride when it comes to your connection to your body and its needs. You’ve been able to soften the rational mind in order to make more space for intuition. With still a couple more years left to go on this transit, don’t forget that if you feel it in your guts and in your bones, you should pay attention to it.

We have the New Moon in Sag on the 12th, at 6:32 pm EST, happening in your area of community and the causes that move you. If dynamics are shifting within certain groups and friendships, don’t turn a blind eye to what’s going on. And don’t be so afraid of facing things that you leave before having the conversations that can end up being healing, transformative and offer everyone the clarity to decide what’s truly best. Recognize the difference between respecting your boundaries and being too afraid to face conflict.

On the 13th, Mercury goes retrograde until January 1st, giving the end of 2023 a reflective mood. This time gives you a chance to review the unpaved roads of your inner landscapes. The first 10 days of this transit will be a time to get deep with certain issues that you thought were ancient history but that have resurfaced and are calling out for your attention yet again.

We welcome Capricorn season on the 21st, shining a light on the reflective journey that Mercury retrograde is taking you through. For you the end of the year is always about slowing down and recharging. Take a moment to yourself, to recalibrate, to clear your head, your heart and your psyche. Make a ritual out of this. Start the year renewed.

Then on the 23rd Mercury moves back into Sag, connecting you with the things that were going on within your social life during the last week of November, offering a deeper perspective.

On the 26th, we have the Full Moon in Cancer, becoming exact at 7:33 pm EST, shining a light on work and health routines. This is a fertile moment for professional opportunities. This Moon highlights the advancements that you have been able to make by tending to the tasks at hand, and what you’re able to create with consistent effort. You’re learning how to best nurture your work and your daily routines, pay attention to how things feel, and follow what feels good.

Also on the 26th, Chiron goes direct in Aries in your area of communication and exchanges. Reminding you that 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.

On the 29th, Venus will enter Sag, where it will be for the next 26 days, inviting you to take a journey through your friendships, communities and causes that move you. This is a time to reach out. Connect with the ones that can uplift your work, your ideas, your spirits, your understanding of what you have to give to the world, and the impact you’re already making. Put your visions into words. Work on being more interdependently supportive and supported. Don’t wait for the invitation. Make yourself available.

As Jupiter goes direct in Taurus on the 30th, your roots will keep deepening, strengthening and expanding, and with it your sense of groundedness and belonging in the world. Can you feel it? This is a great energy to close the year and to think about your New Year’s Resolutions.

2023 hasn’t been easy, personally or collectively, and 2024 will be a year of big shifts and revelations with Pluto moving into Aquarius. We are moving towards the world we want to see come true, and even if at times we may feel close to losing hope, we’ll all be creating the kinds of connections and communities where we feel more supported within our personal and collective dreams. Connection is what will create the possibilities that will overshadow the feelings of hopelessness.

As Mercury goes direct in Sag on the first day of 2024, start the year with this mantra “My hopes and dreams are not capricious. I surround myself with the ones that respect and make space for my desires and ambitions. I know I can turn my creative fire into something so beautiful. So, I spend time in the realms that my passion leads me to”.
