Scorpio (10/23 -11/22)
You’re likely to feel some of this month’s astrology quite personally, Scorpio. Venus will spend most of the month in your Sun sign, putting you in touch with your deepest desires. In addition, Mercury will station direct in your sign on the 6th, which will help with mental clarity and focus.
During the first few weeks of the month, maintain the status quo and finish what you’ve started, as we’ll be in the shadow phase of both Venus and Mercury retrograde. By December 24th, the energy will clear, and new beginnings will be supported.
This month’s New Moon (December 7, Eastern Standard Time / December 6, Pacific Time) will be in Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Set money-related intentions, as well as any goals involving work, travel, education, and self-improvement.
Keep in mind that it could take until the New Year for some of your intentions to unfold. 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 2nd house of finance and self-worth on the 12th. You may be interested in researching the cost of a vacation or work-related travel. It will also be good timing to look into educational programs and opportunities.
From December 2nd on, Venus will be in your Sun Sign. Self-care may be a focus, and it will be important to share your needs with loved ones. If single, you’ll have a magnetic appeal that can draw someone intriguing your way. If attached, it’s a good month to build the intimacy in your relationship.
For the first few weeks of December, Venus will be in the shadow phase of the retrograde cycle that occurred October 5th - November 16th. After the 24th, we’ll be clear of the shadow phases of both Mercury and Venus retrograde, and you’ll be supported to make decisions related to love, money, and your personal goals.
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 will be an excellent time for Scorpios to network for business or pleasure. Your communication skills may help you to gain an opportunity you’ve been seeking.
This month’s Full Moon on the 22nd will be in Cancer and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Family members could turn to you for guidance, and you’ll gain clarity on your personal philosophy. Use your ability to connect emotionally with others as a way to unify those with differing viewpoints.
