Your ruling planet Mercury starts the month in your opposite star sign Sagittarius where it remains until the 6th. This highlights your relationships, both personal and professional. It’s about your one-to-one’s, including your enemies as well as your sweethearts. The planet of love and relating Venus is also here up until the 10th.
Gemini Full Moon
The pivotal date, however, is the Full Moon on the 8th, the only Full Moon in your star sign Gemini all year. This Full Moon cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac and lights up your personal and relationship sectors.
This could be a pivotal moment for your one-to-one’s. Full Moons often coincide with drama as they heighten emotions and the light of moon brings clarity. Plus, during this Full Moon, retrograde Mars in Gemini opposes the Sun and sits in a tight conjunction to the Moon. Mars is also in feisty mood on the 1st when it opposes the planet of relating Venus.
This does suggest some kind of opposition or competition in your life. A tricky relationship could cause issues and it’s going to be hard to avoid a personal challenge. Mars may be retrograde but it’s still a spark, a trigger for action. If you’re feeling angry, you may not be able to hold your tongue during the Full Moon phase.
The other possibility, however, is that this is a passionate Full Moon for you, especially if you reconnect with someone from your past.
Earth Sign Energy
Mercury’s move into Capricorn on the 6th is a sign to focus more on money matters and stability, rather than emotional drama. Venus is a steady influence in Capricorn from the 10th and the Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
Capricorn rules joint finances in your horoscope and this is about team work and sharing resources. It would be a good time to plan your budget for 2023 and look at ways of improving your finances or paying off debt. The earth signs encourage you to have a long-term goal and to work towards it. Taking small steps on a regular basis can pay off.
The 17th could be a stand-out date in this respect when your ruler Mercury teams up with spontaneous Uranus. There could be a gift or bonus that comes your way. Or, perhaps your financial situation is boosted because of your connections with the past.
Be firm about spending over the festive period and encourage friends and family to do what’s right for everyone. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 23rd is a positive date to set your intentions around money and wealth.
Big news towards the end of the month is big planet Jupiter on the move. On the 20th, Jupiter leaves Pisces, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope, representing your career and vocation, your status and reputation. You might be ready to loosen the ties that bind or change your path moving forward.
Jupiter moves into fire sign Aries where it’s been previously from May 10th to October 28th. This time around, Jupiter remains in Aries until May 16, 2023.
This feels bright and breezy for you as Aries rules friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network. It’s about finding people of like minds and making sure that your social life is not only fun but supportive too.
Bring new friends into your life by enjoying new activities and make an effort to catch up with old friends. Jupiter will create the opportunities, perhaps through a friend’s wedding, anniversary or school reunion. All you need to do is say yes.
If you have built up a successful business while Jupiter’s been in Pisces or your career’s back on track, here’s your chance to take what you do out into the wider world and get people on board who can help you. Jupiter in Aries is about gathering people around you, a team or people of like minds who can work with you and make life easier, more enjoyable and fun.
Key dates are the 20th when Jupiter moves into Aries and the 29th when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction. You’ll see this lovely pairing in the night sky and it’s an ideal time to make a wish. Take note of any new opportunities that come your way on or around these key dates and arrange some social get-togethers.
There is one astrological indication, however, which suggests that you’re wise to slow down the pace as the year comes to an end. This is the fact that your planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 29th and remains on go slow until January 18, 2023.
When Mercury turns retrograde, this can sometimes throw a spanner in the works. It means you’re wise to be patient and wait for an opportunity to come to you rather than rushing in. Mercury retrograde is good for planning and doing research.
Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn and your joint finance sector. While Mercury’s in retreat, you’re wise to safeguard your finances and not be persuaded to part with your money.
It’s not a great time for major investments or signing a contract that affects you financially. If you can delay doing so until Mercury turns direct on January 18th, hang on in there.
What is lovely for you is the fact that Mercury switches direction in a lovely planetary aspect with Neptune. This combination is active on Christmas Day, December 25th, a symbol of trust and faith in life.
It’s a reminder to focus on the spiritual aspect of the festivities and not to fall into the trap of commercialism. There could also be help from someone close on the day Mercury switches direction, the 29th.
