Key themes: journey of self-discovery, community and friendships, causes and visions for the future, resources, sense of self-worth, abundance.
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 your ruler, nebulous Neptune, going direct in your sign on the 3rd, sparking our imaginations and our ability to dream. Don’t give so much weight to how others perceive you or how they think of you. Make sure that you’re staying true to yourself no matter what. You can’t control the outside world, but you do have agency over your own actions, and acting in alignment with your truth will be the most healing thing right now for your body, mind and spirit.
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 community, friendships and the causes that move you. This is a beautiful time to make plans with friends. Also to reevaluate and reaffirm who gets to be a part of your inner circle. You want a community that’s empowering.
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 home, family and ancestry, this Full Moon highlights the importance of staying close to what grounds you. This is a good time to bring balance to the aspirations that you have for your career with the desire you might have to go inward for a while.
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. This will bring more action, expansion and mobility into your financial life. It’s an ideal time to clear away the stories of lack and undeserving, especially when it comes to money. Work on making way for stories of worthiness, wealth and abundance to reside within you.
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 friendships. You’ll be craving more depth in your friendships, networks, and community ties. Pay deeper attention to who is really down for you and the bond you share, and who might be there to drain your resources.
On the 23rd, Chiron, the wounded healer, will be going direct in Aries in your area of resources, mundane delights and sense of self-worth. Chiron wants to help you see and confront where you’ve been wounding yourself when it comes to your capacity of survival. Don’t forget the system is rigged, and how much you’re able to make of it has nothing to do with your worth.
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 community, friends, your visions for the futures, visions that you share and expand with others, and the causes that light your fire.
