Your ruling planet Mars remains in your star sign Scorpio until the 13th. Make the most of this and be as productive as you can. Mars in Scorpio has laser focus, willpower and determination. It’s a good time to crack on with your personal goals and aims and to focus on your next steps.
The 6th could be a stand-out date when your co-rulers, Mars and Pluto, are working hand-in-hand. It’s an excellent date for an important communication. Step into your power and speak your truth.
Mars moves into Sagittarius and your money sector on the 13th where it remains until January 24, 2022. This is where to focus your energy and drive towards earning money and sorting out any financial matters.
This sector of your horoscope is busy, however, as soon as December begins. Talk planet Mercury is in Sagittarius until the 13th and the Sun is here until the 21st, the day of the Solstice.
Plus, on the 4th, there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. Solar Eclipses are like a New Moon with extra oomph. They’re turbo-charged. Therefore, note what occurs on or around this date.
Sagittarius is your personal money sector, ruling your possessions & assets, your values & self-worth. There might be a chance to earn extra money close. Or, perhaps you need to put more energy into finding work or pursuing a financial goal.
This eclipse completes an eclipse cycle that began in June 2020 highlighting the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. There may have been a significant shift in your earnings during the past 18 months, whether a rise or a fall in income. Eclipse cycles often represent accelerated growth in either direction – the ups and downs of life.
Sometimes, eclipses coincide with dramatic events and can bring a significant turning point in your life. Sometimes, you experience an ending before you’re able to initiate a new beginning.
This eclipse cycle completes on the 19th, the day of the Full Moon in Gemini. Traditionally, this would be a good Full Moon to make a major decision around money.
However, this year you may be wise to set things in motion sooner rather than later. The 8th, 11th & 20th are potentially lucky dates when your ruler Mars, Mercury and the Sun align with Jupiter in Aquarius and your home and family sector.
You might travel far to meet up with family this year. Or, perhaps you’re moving home or changing around your living situation. Be expansive and stay faithful that things will work out for you and your loved ones.
There is another major shift, however, in the middle of the month. The planet of relating Venus turns retrograde on the 19th and Venus is linked to both love and money. The Full Moon on the 19th could show you clearly where you need to cut ties or let go of a payment plan that’s no longer work out. A change of gear may be needed, time to stop and reassess what next.
This could out to be an important Venus retrograde phase for you because Venus switches direction conjunct Pluto, your co-ruler. They meet on the 11th & the 25th. Together, they represent intensity, obsession and transformation.
This isn’t easy planetary energy by any means but it’s deep and profound. Both planets are currently in Capricorn and your communication sector. You may discover a secret this month or find out something you never knew before. There may be a loss, perhaps in your neighbourhood or your wider family that affects you dearly. If you’re a typical Scorpio, you’ll know that the dark side of life is rich with insight, learning and meaning.
Venus remains on go slow until January 29, 2022. As Venus is your partner planet, this may be about love and relationships too. Perhaps, you’re apart from the one you love. Or, maybe you have little to say to one another. Sometimes when Venus is retrograde, there’s silence rather than chatter. It’s a key time to turn inwards for insight and reflection.
Jupiter Enters Pisces
Finally this month, big planet Jupiter is on the move. Jupiter is the planet of joy, luck and good fortune. On the 29th, Jupiter enters Pisces where it remains until May 10, 2022. Jupiter’s already been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. Look back to that period to see what occurred.
This is a lovely shift of planetary energy for you. Turn your focus towards what you want from life. Pisces represents creativity, love affairs, entertainment, fun and children in your horoscope. It’s the playful sector and is about doing more of what you love.
Plan some fun events with friends and family and make laughter and socialising high priority where you can. Focus on the positives in your life and veer away from negativity.
Jupiter is the planet of luck so trust your luck when Jupiter is in Pisces and the luckiest sector of your horoscope. Have a flutter, enter a competition or buy a raffle ticket when you’re out and about.
There is a popular saying in the UK, ‘you have to be in to win’ and this can apply to life as well as the lottery, e.g. if you want to meet someone new, join a dating agency or let your friends know you’re keen for an introduction. This will serve you better than sitting at home alone waiting for the phone to ring.
It’s the same if you’ve always wanted to write a book, be an artist or play a musical instrument. While Jupiter’s in Pisces, revisit your childhood dreams and take the first step towards turning a dream into reality.
Jupiter’s move into Pisces isn’t going to sort out all the nitty-gritty boring stuff of life but it is going to move play and pleasure higher up your life barometer and that’s got to be a good thing.
