December begins in a state of uncertainty. Priorities are shifting, circumstances are changing, and the only way out is through. Don’t worry though, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and by the end of the month, we get a much-needed breath of fresh air.
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th brings a necessary recalibration as we see the results and consequences of our actions over not only the last month, but the last year. Things feel more confusing, chaotic and dire than they actually are though, and what seems urgent can actually wait until we’re in a more grounded place later in the month.
The first step out of this desperation and toward solid ground comes when chatty Mercury and sweet Venus move from freewheeling Sagittarius to steady Capricorn on the 6th and 9th respectively. Capricorn makes moves with the long game in mind so while relationships and connections forged now might seem less adventurous, they’re also built to last. To note: Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn on the 29th, so conversations that start now will be revisited again through early next year.
The full vibe shift arrives at the end of the month when Jupiter leaves dreamy Pisces for excitable Aries on the 20th just as the sun enters Capricorn on the 21st. Happy birthday to our ambitious sea goats like Diane Keaton, Timothée Chalamet and Michelle Obama! The new moon in Capricorn on the 23rd is an auspicious one as it makes an inspiring square to optimistic Jupiter. More often than not, 2022 had us taking two steps forward only to be forced to take ten steps back, but with this new moon, we’re able to end the year in gratitude. Hope is on the horizon.
