APR 20 – MAY 20
Lighten up, Taurus! This may be a message you seem to keep receiving, and this month it is more important than ever. That’s because there are good developments coming in your personal life in the immediate moment, but you may not see how rich and full they could be if you are not in the right mindset. By welcoming joy into your life, you will open a pathway for even greater joy to come through. You may be quite surprised by how great something about your living situation and your family situation can get, but you need to stay optimistic and hopeful. There may be a much bigger focus on leisure time and enjoyment of life this month, with lots of things showing up on your horizon that could take place next year. But even though these things may not actually occur in December, the sight of them coming should invigorate and awaken your sense of happy anticipation. Even if you have never taken up any kind of hobby before that involves creativity, you are encouraged to do so this month. It will help to open up your imagination, which will allow you to dream bigger dreams for yourself as well as give you a renewed sense of hope for the future. These kinds of activities can also be quite rejuvenating and therapeutic. A special invitation you receive late in the month could turn out quite beautifully if you are brave enough to say yes. This may involve attending a party or celebration or even taking a trip somewhere interesting.

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.
