We enter December in lockstep with Mercury's entrance into sensible Capricorn. FINALLY. A moment to get our bearings. Even though the frenzy of the holiday season is fast approaching, we know that tackling business now will save us time and hassle when the pressure is on. That is...until Mercury’s mid-month backslide begins, forcing us to rethink our strategy entirely. Can our plan be salvaged? Answers may not be forthcoming until after the new year. So, what to do in the meantime? Enjoy the festivities! It may be our one constant.
Dec 1/2 – Mercury enters Capricorn: efficiency is our chief concern now. Plot out your New Year’s resolution, but don’t get TOO attached to it.
Dec 4/5 – Venus enters Scorpio: attractions intensify, but is it passion or obsession that is motivating your romantic choices? Examine the root of your desires.
Dec 6/7 – Neptune is direct: rose-colored glasses are reapplied, distorting reality for the next seven months. Resist the urge to take every interaction at face value.
Dec 12/13 – Mercury is retrograde: Mercury’s final turnaround of the year instructs us to temporarily take ourselves less seriously. Find the humor in moments of frustration.
Dec 21/22 – Sun enters Capricorn: our confidence is tied to the achievement of a long-term goal. We’re willing to sacrifice for success. Just keep a realistic grip on your priorities.
Dec 22/23 – Mercury enters Sagittarius: maintain an open mind to rediscover something you forgot. We’re retracing our steps for a reason. Focus on the big picture.
Dec 26/27 – Chiron is direct: over the next seven months, conflicts with bullies periodically pour salt in an old wound. These tests implore us to stand up and say “Enough is enough!”
Dec 29/30 – Venus enters Sagittarius: Romance is an adventure and love is the greatest truth. We trade ride-or-die’s for travel companions.
Dec 30/Jan 1 – Jupiter is direct: luck returns with force in the coming months. That “lost opportunity” you lamented? You’ll thank your stars that it didn’t pan out!
