December brings out steadfast opinions and adventurous leaps forward, as we begin the month in Sagittarius season. The sign of the Archer is known for its eager pursuit of new horizons, wanderlust and desire to find deep philosophical meaning. In 2022, we were encouraged to let go of attachments and, instead, focus on where we can become our own source of love. The planets mirrored a collective untethering from unhealthy power dynamics, both interpersonally and globally. While Scorpio season in November brought deep insights and intensity, the sign Sagittarius wants us to focus on finding hope. We are looking back on our year, searching for answers, eager to regain a sense of clarity. We are inspired by new potentials and possibilities, eager for spiritual expansion and brand new perspectives. 

We begin December eager to traverse new possibilities, Mars is still retrograde in Gemini, making reassessments of old choices. We may find ourselves examining themes from adolescence, or reassessing our place in the world. Gemini also rules the media we consume, and we are challenged to clear out old programming. Mars in Gemini retrograde is a reassessment of choices. Has our personal mission changed? Do we need to upgrade our sense of purpose? Can we quit gossiping and start communicating? The Gemini Full Moon conjunct Mars in Gemini on the 7th brings answers to light.

Venus enters Capricorn on the 9th of the month, upgrading our love language. The planet of love and relationships in the sign of Capricorn encourages us to practice boundariedness and discernment when it comes to selecting lovers and friends. Jupiter traverses back into Aries on the 20th, amplifying our belief in our own independence, embarking us on a 12-month cycle of increased personal freedom, drive, and creative potential. 

The following day, the Sun enters Capricorn, and we enter a season of increased integrity, with a focus on seeing changes in the areas of governance and leadership. Capricorn rules our ability to show up in the world at large, our ambitions and the public sphere. As we have spent 2022 reassessing our ambitions and call to action, we may find ourselves eager to make changes in career matters. In December, we are driven to make judgment calls about who and what we are working for. The holiday season brings the occasional communicative hiccup, as Mercury enters retrograde on the 29th in the sign of the Sea Goat. It’s a good opportunity to revise any contracts we wish to renew or burn up, and to anticipate the occasional delay.
