AUG 23 – SEP 22
Big new opportunities in business and finance may come to you early in the month, Virgo. You may have a lot of other things on your plate at the time, but you are encouraged to take a look and assess what might be possible anyway. You won’t necessarily have to get started on any of these big opportunities, but you may have to at least respond to reserve the chance to do so. As the end of the year approaches, you may find yourself on everyone’s “A” list for party invitations and warm gatherings. Attend as many as you can and be sure to let your hair down and enjoy yourself – you don’t do enough of that! It may seem that something keeps blocking a project you are trying to get off the ground, but you may reach a breakthrough this month that will allow you to finally get started. Be sure to dig in quickly and to align with good team members or partners so that you can rest assured that you are headed in a good direction. A friend or a family member may step up in a big way later in the month, speaking up for you or defending you in a powerful way. This confirmation that they are on your side should be very validating. Someone may try to test your resolve over an issue you and the other party do not agree on. Maintain your position on this, for if you give in even a little, they may become even more irritating in their efforts to get you on board.

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.
