Shortly after the Moon enters Scorpio on Wednesday, December 1st, the planet Neptune will return to direct motion. It takes a longer time for an outer planet like Neptune to completely adjust to its new direction. As a result it is possible that we will be in a transitional limbo of healing and release until the New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius which occurs early on Saturday, December 4th. New beginnings in our experience of travel, education and cultural awareness are likely to evolve in the next six months.
A First Quarter Phase Moon occurs in Pisces on Friday, December 10th. Because both the Moon and Sun are in mutable signs it is likely that we will need to emotionally adapt to changing situations and circumstances in our personal and professional life.
Mars enters Sagittarius and Mercury enters Capricorn on Monday, December 13th. The desire to take action will be most successful if we are following a well thought out plan and strategy.
A Full Moon occurs in Gemini on Saturday, December 18th. This Full Moon is in the Aquarius decan of Gemini and invites us to be more conscious of the changes necessary in our attitudes regarding different cultures and their spiritual beliefs and practices.
Venus goes retrograde in Capricorn on Sunday, December 19th. Venus will not go direct until 1/29/2022 and will not completely be out of the retrograde shadow until 3/2/2022. This retrograde experience of Venus will be a time of much re-evaluation and renegotiation in our personal and professional relationships. Prioritizing what is essential and most valuable for us to focus on in this coming year will help us to experience financial success. Team efforts will require frequent adjustments to find the right balance between performance and profit. Revising our business plans and contractual agreements with others will be necessary in order to insure long-term success.
Chiron also goes direct in Aries on Sunday, December 19th. Chiron’s glyph or symbol looks very much like a key. Chiron in Aries reminds us to make friends with Mars and continue to move forward regardless of opposing energies and attitudes of other people. Healthy confrontations may be necessary in order to achieve our desired goals.
The Sun enters Capricorn on Tuesday, December 21st in the Northern Hemisphere. This event signals the beginning of the Winter season. I will be evaluating the significance of this event in a separate article.
Saturn will be forming an exact square with Uranus on Friday, Christmas Eve and Saturday, Christmas Day. Suffice it to say that things may not go as previously planned and creative problem solving opportunities are likely to be in abundance.
A Last Quarter Phase Moon occurs on Sunday, December 26th in the sign of Libra. Our experience of personal relationships during this time will be in high focus. Compassion and diplomacy are recommended.
Jupiter enters the sign of Pisces on Tuesday evening, December 28th. We will need to learn how to strengthen our faith and grow our soul as Jupiter transits this spiritual sign. Music, meditation and recreational experiences involving water are favored.
