JAN 20 – FEB 18
A chance to share your thoughts with an influential person or someone in a position to make great connections for you may come at the start of December. Don’t allow yourself to feel intimidated, though. Keep in mind that you have some brilliant gifts and a unique way of seeing the world that others can benefit from. Although the month may start out slowly where your social life is concerned, you should begin to see invitations trickle in around the second week of the month. While you may be consumed by some of your personal projects, you are encouraged to make some time to visit with friends and family and to attend any events or gatherings that you think might be enjoyable. Life is all about balance, Aquarius. A relationship could come to an end this month. And while that may be upsetting at first, you should quickly see that it was for the best and that you somehow feel lighter and less stressed. A project of yours that was on hold for some time may finally begin inching forward again. Don’t get ahead of yourself, though, because you are so eager to see this to fulfillment. Take your time and allow yourself to be present in the experience. This is a good time to reach out to someone you have been estranged from, if that is what’s in your heart. You may have wanted to do so for some time but couldn’t come up with a comfortable approach. But since the holidays and the end of the year are near, you could use good wishes as a way of reconnecting with that individual. It can’t hurt to try.

ASTRO NEWS DECEMBER 2022
The first days of December point to an enjoyable time that can bring good results, provided we don’t overdo it. Sagittarius Venus and Gemini Mars form an opposition on December 1, harmoniously joined by Saturn in Aquarius. Mercury, still close to Venus, forms a square to Neptune on December 2. Small dreams, as well as big ones, want to be seen and heard now, and it’s a good time for pleasurable pursuits of all kinds.
However, the realization of more complex projects may prove difficult. Mars is still retrograde until mid-January, and so unfortunately more often than not talk is cheap. However, seriously planned and executed projects could, despite a tough start, point the way ahead at a later date, supported by Sun trine Chiron.
Neptune in Pisces turns direct on December 4, squaring Venus and Mercury in Sagittarius. Longings and quiet forebodings can now drift through the soul’s landscape like wisps of fog, making it difficult to concentrate on the essentials.
On December 6, agile Mercury enters realistic Capricorn. A few hours earlier, it forms a square to Jupiter, which is in the last degree of Pisces. The dreams and visions of these past few days must now be checked for their validity in real life.
The Gemini Full Moon of December 8 is in exact conjunction with Mars. The big words heard here and there should be taken with a pinch of salt, but this should in no way prevent you from taking concrete steps yourself.
Venus squares Jupiter on December 9 and enters Capricorn on December 10. Now increasingly good conditions prevail for the concrete implementation of projects of all kinds. Only on December 14, when the Sun squares Neptune, should you exercise caution and avoid taking risks. On this day, the energy level is quite low for some, and great achievements are hardly possible.
Mercury and Venus square Chiron in Aries on December 15 and 19, respectively. Mercury also makes a trine to Uranus on the 17th. Renewing and transforming forces can now make themselves felt in close relationships, which offer great opportunities if they are used carefully. Some things that have remained unspoken so far can now be communicated and in this way may trigger a healing process. However, be mindful in doing so.
This year’s winter solstice is under the proverbial lucky star. The Sun enters Capricorn on December 21/22 as it does every year, but this year Jupiter also changes signs at the same time. It enters Aries on December 20 (for good).
Thus, the Sun and Jupiter form a square on the first degree of Capricorn (stability) and Aries (new beginnings) during these days. The quality of time is positively charged and conducive to bold and decisive action.
Venus forms a trine to Uranus at the same time, signalling openness to new experiences. This life-affirming energy during the time of the solstice imprints itself on the following months as an unmistakable signature.
The Capricorn New Moon of December 23 still occurs within Jupiter’s sphere of influence. At the same time, Chiron end its retrograde and turns direct. In the darkness, we may receive the light for the time to come. Christmas could thus provide us with a welcome respite at the end of a challenging year, giving us courage and confidence for the months ahead.
On December 29, Mercury conjoins Venus, just before their conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury, however, now begins its phase of retrograde, which lasts until January 18. Venus, on the other hand, will spend the turn of the year in conjunction with Pluto. Extroverted natures can now celebrate boisterous parties again. More quiet minds, however, may find this transition into the new year an enriching, contemplative experience.
