Aries (3/21 - 4/20)
This will be a good month to establish balance between intimacy and independence within your relationships. Because we’ll be in the shadow phase of both Venus and Mercury retrograde this month, most of December will be best spent finishing what you’ve started and reconnecting with people from the past. By December 24th, you’ll be in the clear to initiate some exciting new ideas!
This month’s New Moon (December 7, Eastern Standard Time / December 6, Pacific Time) will be in Sagittarius and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. If you’ve been thinking of enrolling in school or other types of training programs, the timing will be excellent to set intentions to attract the right opportunity. You can also use this New Moon to set intentions related to travel, new life adventures, and mentorship.
It could take until the New Year for you to get a new idea off the ground, as we’ll be making our way through the end of the current Mercury retrograde cycle (November 16th - December 6th). Mercury will enter Sagittarius and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education on the 12th. If traveling, you could experience delays or other mix ups related to the details of your trip. Keep a patient attitude and look for ways to have spontaneous fun if your plans take an unexpected turn.
Venus will spend most of the month in the sign of Scorpio and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. This is the area that has been highlighted during Venus’s recent retrograde cycle in October and November. You’re being directed to address any problems and determine what’s been going on beneath the surface in matters related to love or money. On the 17th, Venus will clear the shadow phase of her last retrograde cycle (October 5th - November 16th). After this date, you’ll be well positioned to make decisions related to a partnership and/or financial agreement.
On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. No matter where in the world you live, the December 21st Solstice will be a time to reflect on the previous year and slow your pace to work with deliberate intention. Harness your resources and set your sights on personal goals. This Solstice will be a positive time for Aries to work towards their long-term security and move confidently towards career-related goals.
This month’s Full Moon in Cancer on the 22nd will light up your 4th house of home and family. Home improvement projects could come to fruition around this time. If you or those around you start to get overly emotional, look for ways to establish a sense of security. It won’t be good timing to introduce radical ideas or push yourself outside your comfort zone.
