It’s the most wonderful time of the year! December begins with the optimistic and adventurous spirit of Sagittarius, which is perfect as we head out for holiday gatherings and experience general joy during this festive season. “Sagittarius season will keep us warm with excitement and adventure throughout the first three weeks of December,” astrologer Liz Simmons tells SheKnows. “Expect to feel outgoing and passionate throughout these three weeks thanks to the solar energy of Sagittarius. Sagittarius season is a jubilant time, there is this ever-increasing anticipation to reach new horizons and explore new opportunities. So now could be the perfect time to step in with any last minute goals or intentions for 2022!
Then, we close out the month (and year) with the stability and traditional vibe of Capricorn once the Sun enters the sign of the sea goat on December 21st. “It’s no surprise that Capricorn season comes at the end of one year and the beginning of the next as it completes a year of maturation while guiding us into a more thoughtful new year,” says Simmons. can feel more reflective during this time, as Capricorn season will encourage us to consider what we’ve accomplished this year and where we’ve accidentally slowed our progress.”
Simmons says we might feel more serious at the end of 2022, but it’s also a great time to reflect on how far we’ve come and start setting any intentions or goals that you want to be responsible for achieving throughout 2023. .
Here’s what else the stars have in store for you in December.
Tap into your intuition but also use logic
Neptune, the planet of spirituality and intuition, moves directly into Pisces on December 3. According to Simmons, when Neptune retrograde in Pisces in late June, it was time to break through illusion, confusion, poor coping mechanisms, fantasy, and a lack of boundaries. However, once Neptune is direct in Pisces, the old retrograde feelings of clarity and discernment can begin to slip away from us if we’re not careful.
“Now that Neptune is direct, it’s up to us to maintain that intuitive, spiritual discernment that we gained from the retrograde period,” Simmons says. “Part of that is not falling back into old habits or perspectives that don’t help us stay grounded. It’s important to fantasize and have hope, but don’t forget to take off the rose-colored glasses to get back to your reality. Integrate your discernment, intuitive understandings, and retrograde realizations under the guidance of the Neptune stations. By doing so, you may feel more enlightened and in touch with your world.
Take the lead in conversations
Mercury, the planet of communication, enters Capricorn on December 6. Since Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, Simmons says this means our communication will be more serious and focused.
“Conversations will become more focused, responsible and even dry,” says Simmons. “Saturn’s influence might even accidentally affect Mercury’s conversational abilities or thought process! Mercury in Capricorn is a reflective and driven transit. The cardinal quality of Capricorn will encourage Mercury to express itself, to take the lead in a conversation or follow through on an idea.
Additionally, adds Simmons, the feminine aspect of Capricorn will help us to be passive, intuitive, and cautious in conversation. Moreover, the quality of our conversations will deepen and mature.
Keep your intentions light and fun
We have a full moon in Gemini on December 7. Simmons says this full moon in the sign of the twins will address the events of the past six months while bringing this lunar chapter to a close.
“At this point, it would be best to focus on how much you improved your mental processing, what you were able to learn by exploring your curiosities, what happened in conversation and even how much you could have been divergent at times,” she said. Explain.
It could also be an insightful time to analyze any superficial two-sided connections in your life as well as a time to work on your communication and thought process, especially if you’re trying to become more flexible in your approach.
Going forward, Simmons recommends using this lunation to set intention to keep your banter light, fun, and editable. “The full moon could help set the intention to keep certain information at bay, especially if you’re engaging in a conversation with the goal of learning something new. It could even be a great lunation to set the intention to expand. your social network to include easy-going connections.
Take the first step in love
Venus, the planet of love, enters Capricorn on December 9. While the gravity of the sea goat may mean there’s less fantasy in the air, that doesn’t mean your love life will suffer. On the contrary, says Simmons, singles and couples will experience a serious phase in their love life.
“Capricorn can encourage Venus to take a loving stance, giving us a chance to initiate something,” she says. “Singles can use it to initiate a first date, first text or DTR conversation with a lover. Couples could use this energy to come up with something new in the relationship.
According to Simmons, the feminine aspect of Capricorn will allow Venus to be more intuitive, which can help us assess all relevant details of our love life before taking action. Additionally, the earthy aspect of Capricorn can enhance the stability and rationality of Venus.
“So singles could use this to come up with a more mature arrangement while couples will feel more mature moving forward with their partner,” she says. “Since Venus in Capricorn is all about tradition, this could be a fantastic time to create a new tradition with a partner or to introduce some structure into your love life. Either way, Venus in Capricorn is the perfect transit to keep the future in mind as you head into something with your partner or love interest.
Set the intention for your new year
A beautiful new moon – and the last of 2022 – in Capricorn takes place on December 23, which is perfect for our 2023 goals.
“Since this New Moon will take place over a six-month period, it will peak or conclude around the middle of 2023. With that in mind, you can use the Capricorn New Moon to set goals for not just the six coming months. but for the whole year,” says Simmons. “Use the Full Moon in Capricorn as a checkpoint with said goals in six months. Capricorn-style, set realistic and achievable goals that could positively influence our long-term endeavors, career, and reputation. Simmons recommends creating a plan or vision board to manifest your dreams in a tangible way.
Don’t expect your vacation plans to go smoothly
Get ready to blame Mercury retrograde for everything. This pesky little planet, which rules our travels and our technology, will retrograde on December 29.
“Mercury retrograde is notorious for messing up travel plans, conversations, and commitments. Since it just happens during vacations and NYE, it would be best to check all the details before you take off,” recommends Simmons. sure you have the right address before going to a friend’s NYE party and keep an eye out for your departure gate at the airport to avoid missing your flight. Don’t be surprised if you receive gifts in holidays, or even if you even receive duplicates of the same gift!If you bring anything with you to a party or a trip, be sure to remember what you need to pack. set reminders so you don’t forget.
