Monthly HoroscopeDecember 2022
This will be a great month to adopt a patient attitude, Aries. December will likely feel even slower than November. Not only will your planetary ruler, Mars, be retrograde, but we’re also heading towards a Mercury retrograde cycle that begins December 29. With visionary Jupiter jumping into your sign on December 20, you could feel impatient to take a big step towards a dream or goal. But, your patience could pay off in the form of some good luck in 2023 if you don’t try to force things right now. Use this month for some practical planning. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd will help you to set some long-term goals that require your slow, steady effort.
On December 7, we’ll have a Full Moon at 16 degrees Gemini, lighting up your 3rd solar house of communications and learning. Details may come to light that help you to see your current situation more clearly. You could find the missing puzzle piece of information you’ve been looking for! Efforts to have your message heard could pay off around this time, and it will be a favorable time for networking.
On December 20, Jupiter will ingress into your sign, where it will remain until May 16, 2023. In the coming months, all Aries people will enjoy the luck and opportunity that Jupiter brings when it crosses over your natal Sun. Jupiter is on a 13 year cycle—you’ll be supported to initiate new beginnings that could set a course for the next 13 years. When it comes to Jupiter, it’s time to think big! If you are ready to start something new, or break free in any way, this is the year to do it. You’ll have the most support for new beginnings in late January, after both Mars and Mercury station direct.
On December 21, the Sun will move into Capricorn. This is the date of the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Wherever you are in the world, you’ll feel the powerful support of Capricorn season in the coming weeks. It will be a great time to take charge in your personal and professional life. You’ll be most successful when you focus on finishing what you’ve started.
This month’s New Moon will be on December 23 at 1 degree Capricorn. If you were born on or around March 22, of any year, or have around 1 degree Aries rising, you’ll feel the most activated at this New Moon. All Aries folks can use the New Moon energy to set intentions related to their career, public image, long-term goals, and financial security.
On December 29, Mercury will station retrograde in Capricorn, initiating a cycle that will last through January 18, 2023. This will add to the slowing energy already present in our current Mars retrograde cycle. Miscommunications are more likely under this astrology, especially at work. Take extra care to make sure you and others are on the same page. Your contacts from the past will prove to be the most valuable in the coming months. Avoid making new commitments and direct your energy towards following through with your current responsibilities.
