ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 15, 2022-JANUARY 1, 2023
The end of the business year draws closer. It’s easy to think about the accomplishments and mistakes of the past year. When you give energy to positivity as opposed to negativity it ends the year nicely. Rather than brooding about what you didn’t do or succeed with come from a more positive center. Look at what did go right and how you grew past any blockages and shortcomings. Look at where there is strength and the promise of new life.
To aid you in being more expansive for the New Year observe Jupiter moving into Aries. Jupiter in Aries begins on December 22. Aries is ruled by Mars which rules aggression, drive and sexuality. Jupiter rules expansion and optimism and with Jupiter in Aries there’s more energy to be forthright, direct and impatient. Aries is a take-no- prisoners kind of sign. As Jupiter transits Aries it’s the time to be fiery and address how to lead through example.
If you’re feeling an existential crisis like, “why bother doing anything?”, look to Pluto leaving Capricorn. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008. Many Capricorns had 14 years of crisis about identity, power and radical financial changes. It’s the intensity bell going off for Capricorns since 2008 and will tamp down between now and March 23, 2023.
For those that are not Capricorn you will feel a change in how you work with power. How you walk with power, talk with power move with power. Many are being faced with how they self- limit power and give it away to family, partners, friends and enemies.
This is a wake-up call with power shifting in each individual’s world. The issue for most has to do with where you’re too involved with fantasies about power and where you’re not participating enough with the power you have. Pluto changing signs represents a world change.
The political system of most countries will seemingly improve but ultimately be swallowed up by bigger fish. For the United States there will be a move towards more power for the people that will result in a war of factions. A move towards leveling the playing field will ultimately be a deal with a bigger fish or Moby Dick. Fascism will wear many hats in the next twenty years.
The New Moon on December 23 at 1 degree Capricorn will present the beginning of the end of Pluto in Capricorn. There might be another market shift or a run on stocks and bonds. Cash will be king for awhile. During the two weeks from December 23 -January 6 there might be financial signaling about the next cycle that will seem optimistic but prove differently.
Pluto changes the power structure in individual’s lives and circumstance irrationally. We’re in an ending cycle that will finish some dance you’ve had with power since 2008. If there’s a big pressure cooker that’s been simmering in your kitchen you can anticipate something blowing up or going away. You might experience an end of passion for something or someone or the end of a job or home or a way of life.
Mercury goes retrograde December 29. Watch what happens that day internationally and in your own life. From December 11-15 you will be influenced by what happens on these days through the second week of January.
The New Moon is known for new beginnings yet this time it will bring endings with what needs to go. There is suddenly an absence of energy to support what’s obsessed you.
Pluto brings endings and then a period of nothingness. A void. An abyss. During this period be especially conscious of what comes and visits you in the way of people, visitations or dreams. Pluto is magical and relentless in the way it paves the way for change. People and attachments just drop out of your life.
Governments will be affected. Somewhere a country with a stable economy and seemingly secure government might get taken over by a bigger, stricter fish. Groups that support fascism and freedom end up battling each other.
Saturn rules Capricorn and Saturn is leaving Aquarius. The end of a trans Saturn sign shows what the transit has been about. Saturn in Aquarius has shown extremes of governing. Fascism versus freedom. Pluto in Capricorn showed consecutive scenes about “Whose got the power” is really about who has the money. How tradition awards power only to the secure lineage of power. The highs and lows of how power is passed down to an elite is slowly being repositioned by those who have had no power in the past.
For the individual, observe what dominated your life in the last fourteen years and how it falls apart. It might be with a bang or a whimper but some chapter of your life is over. Endings are followed by new beginnings. Be calm in the face of the new reality that’s about to land. It promises progress whichever way it rolls. Roll with it.
I want to thank all my readers for your consistent interest and support. I appreciate you and are inspired daily by your energy and participation. Happy Holidays!
INDIVIDUAL SUN AND RISING SIGNS
ARIES keeps going over things of the past that involve actions you should’ve taken and feelings you had but didn’t communicate. The ending of this mental review comes after January 12 when you begin to resolve past actions that haunt you. Be more connected to your heart and extend direct energy to others without apology.
The New Moon brings a career conflict with the home or feelings. If you don’t want to stay in the same place with your job (literally the same place) make the move to allow more mobility physically or emotionally. Someone that was friendly might have become not so friendly. Don’t take it personally. It’s not your problem. Be happy with your independence.
TAURUS is moving towards expressing yourself more dynamically. The money /value changes when you acknowledge your value. You objectify yourself when you feel vulnerable and not valued. This means go beyond the transactional place in love. Connect love and affection to heart feelings.
The New Moon makes travel and the future more fluid. If you’re thinking about selling your home or changing it, watch what comes to you after December 23. The decision to buy or sell or redecorate is tossed around. It reflects the changes in the home on a more emotional and psychological level. You’ve settled down and gone past the reality of a loss or betrayal. Bigness of heart is the right strategy to rebuild.
GEMINI is still fighting or being fought over. Mars makes your mind go faster than your mouth. Be kind when sharp words or thoughts come. You’re in the drivers’ seat with more power than you think. When others’ arrogance annoys you slow down and ignore the provocation.
The New Moon makes for insecurity with funding, taxes, inheritance and mutual possessions. The promise of money involves an adjustment that makes itself clear after March. Your bills and debts make you uneasy even if there’s cash to pay them. Suddenly everything is different and you need to be ready to learn the new ropes so you can set sail.
CANCER is having a hard time with your life force, either it’s breathing, digestion or sleeplessness or all three. In this period you need to go over where you are filled with anger because of someone acting aggressively. The career/public persona house is affected.
Make peace with how you are reflected in the Other and your health will unblock.
The New Moon in Capricorn makes a partner with a karmic debt come forward. They don’t exactly owe you money yet there is a debt. Be clear emotionally and go past being small of heart. Don’t hold onto the pain and anger. It’s hurting you physically. Try generosity and good will towards others and your purity of heart helps all.
LEO is angling for more efficient connections. You need support for all the plans you’re making. The future changes your playing field and you’re back in the race. The last two and a half years had you sitting on the bench. Get started with the personal retraining.
The New Moon makes your health or daily world feel tense. Any frustration you’re carrying is too much. Settle down with a good book and relax when you get wired. Your time will come, don’t rush forward where the angels tread. Try to be more angelic.
VIRGO is on a tangent taking corrective action from what went wrong the last few years. Consider others’ feelings and don’t ignite bridges that need to stay standing for a while longer. Anger and hurt go together. Let things release that are changing. Don’t charge ahead or something might get broken.
The New Moon favors reorganizing the debt and investment house. Review if it’s time to invest in your projects from a different place. A friend or colleague might help with your expansion of any recent creativity. You’re anxious to get on a new road. Be patient with the transition.
LIBRA has the energy to keep on going. Pace yourself since the world is moving slower than you now. Be careful with a partner or client if they fight with you. Your transition into a new side of your business is about to go to another level.
The New Moon makes home and family conflict with career. You’re going in one direction while the home or family is not so connected. It’s more emotional than material. Put the commitments down for awhile and renew yourself. This year has been a wild grind of action. Be quiet and contemplate the cosmos.
SCORPIO has minor mood swings of energy and emotion. You’ve gotten used to the rapid change of pace that your life has become. Energy has been tied up with power issues and resources. You can only do so much. Take the time to be conscious of your surroundings.
The New Moon brings changes with decisions. The love affair with the future has only just begun. The home and property plans go through last minute tweaks. Kids and lovers are on the sidelines trying to support you yet you must support yourself. You get the message on the New Moon that we all walk alone no matter how many parties there are.
SAGITTARIUS has remorse about the past. Maybe you were too blunt or too sharp or too irritated. The past comes back not to haunt but to correct. You feel like you got the short end of the stick in some deal or relationship. It’s all too much and want to bolt to another country, job or love interest. Things in your personal life settle down in January.
The New Moon brings a money offer that is low ball. Wait it out for a bigger option. You’ve been living through the last two years when things didn’t pay off the way you expected. Your fortune is about to change. Wait the change out and don’t run off to another distraction or dimension.
CAPRICORN is waiting for Pluto to move away. During this ending observe what is going and gone. Passion has disappeared in some area and meaning is up for grabs. The end of Pluto brings the message. Be a good student and learn from what has failed or misfired.
The New Moon makes for a summary of the last few years. People who promised a lot didn’t deliver. This New Moon brings it all back to be put together in a new way. Be balanced in your dealings with others.
AQUARIUS your time of bondage is about to be broken open and a whole new momentum is coming. Yours is to have a different identity and purpose and the power to see it through. Use this time to meditate on how you’ve healed in the last fourteen years. There’s more to come with a different way to function.
The New Moon brings out secrets and secret feelings. Be calm when something surprising is revealed. Things can take an emotional turn through the New Year be self- contained with anxiety and impatience. Have confidence when the earth moves.
PISCES experiences the two worlds swimming in opposite directions. First you go towards a goal, then resistance arrives. The first leg of the journey has only half started. You keep getting stuck on what your unconscious resists when frustration and stalemate kick in.
The New Moon should help you get your dreams and hopes more in gear. The children and romance part of life is changing when hidden aspects make themselves clearer. Be in touch with your dreams and psychism during the New Moon. The decisions you’re trying to make present themselves in potent form at the last minute.
