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. Look at the spiritual wellness you’ve been bringing into your life during the past five months. Don’t forget about this going forward. You may think you can do it all, but that’s not always true. Make space in your schedule for the things you know that bring you ease and keep you centered.
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 your area of home and family, leading you to dig deep into your ancestral stories, traditions, sorrows and joys, the things that inform you of your sense of rootedness. Ask an elder about foundational family stories, learn the lullabies they sung to your parents, practice your Nana’s recipe.
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 philosophical pursuits and journeys that lead to new experiences, this Full Moon pulls focus on your big dreams. What are your hopes for the foreseeable future? What are you doing or what can you do to make those visions come true?
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. You want partnerships, alliances, friendships that light you up, so choose your sidekicks wisely. You want to surround yourself with the ones that are taking their dreams seriously, that are being brave and daring about it. Being with them, it’ll be hard for you not to do the same!
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 home and family relations. This is a beautiful time to give yourself the love and nurture you seek. Renew your stories of not belonging. Dig deep until you find yourself, until you tap into warmth. Reclaim your roots.
On the 23rd, Chiron, the wounded healer, will be going direct in Aries in your area of one-0n-one relationships, commitments and how you come out into the world. This is a reminder that the more you acknowledge and make space for your wounds to be felt, the more fit you will be to open up to honest and stable relationships.
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 home, family, your roots and ancestral lineage, care-taking, nurturing, especially when it comes to your own needs and the needs of your blood or chosen family.
