Horoscope for the Week: December 9, 2022

Tip of the Week:

The Full Moon in Gemini that waxed to full on December 7 is the main obvious focus this week. In addition to coming to its energetic peak, it also joins forces with the other three personal planets, Mercury, Venus, and Mars in their collective out-of-bounds status amplifying the extreme expressions this condition tends to produce. The fact that the Moon will also be exactly conjunct Mars and both exactly opposite the Sun further amplifies the likely expression of anger and veritable outrage. Given these combined factors, there is no doubt that this will be an exciting Full Moon, to say the least. Since the Moon is symbolic of the masses in general, it is likely to manifest as mass hysteria, at least somewhere in the world. Given what is occurring in China, it appears that it is providing us all with examples of what totalitarian control can amount to. This is just one example and with this awareness, other examples will also become evident.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Especially since your ruling planet Mars is conjunct it, you will be experiencing this Full Moon strongly. Since Mars is retrograde, it could push you to revisit and redo what was started some time ago. At worst, you could feel very reactive and angry so be aware and choose to direct your energies wisely.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

Amidst a cycle of measurable change and even transformation of some kind in your world, you have also been extra determined to get a lot done and this continues. However, with Mars retrograde, you run the risk of burnout and are wise to slow down, be more patient and center your focus.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Striking a balance between outer engagement and independent action is important now. Mars retrograde in your sign will effectively increase your drive and determination. Affirming and asserting your sense of individuality and independence while also engaging with others is the golden mean you seek.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

A busy outer schedule vies with a strong impulse to retreat or escape. The middle ground could be understood as focusing to do inner work. This largely amounts to clearing subconscious emotional irritations. In this regard, focus to thank, forgive and release – a spiritual formula for inner peace and freedom.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

The uplifting, inspiring, and visionary activations from Sagittarius continue to motivate you. Creativity is a keyword now and the time is right to both receive intuitive guidance and capture these ideas so that they do not get forgotten. There are times when dreaming is needed, like now.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Nestling-in close to home where you can cultivate creative ideas and beautify your living environment is emphasized now. Yet, your focus does include your professional and practical status and effectiveness. The time is right to fill in the gaps by tending to unfinished business to strengthen your overall position.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Freedom is a keyword for you and especially so now. It is important to remember that it all begins in the mind. We can liberate or imprison ourselves with our thoughts, attitudes, perceptions, beliefs, interpretations, self-concept, and mindset in general. Free your mind and the rest will follow.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

What do you want, need and have? Assessing what you have in terms of ideas, resources and opportunities are also important to clearly consider in regard to attaining what you want and need. A review of all that you have will empower you to get organized and generate more personal power.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

A pioneering impulse continues to guide your choices and actions. Your focus is strong and may prove necessary to help you to follow through on things. As eager as you are to engage with significant others, you also want to do what you want to do. Get clear on your priorities, manage your time and communicate clearly.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

As eager as you may feel to engage in social and cultural activities, you may also feel called to retreat. Qualitative bouts of stillness and receptivity to fill your energy tanks may be all you need. Avoid stacking your to-do list as you are likely to get scattered. Slow down and into flow mode for a while.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Gathering with friends is important to you and likely now. As eager as you may be to get things done, by recognizing the value of your social life and connections making time for such activities will balance the scales. Sometimes, apparently idle interests and quality time shared are worth a million.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

A big focus on your public and professional life continues. The time is right to be seen and heard and to receive the rewards and returns that you have earned. You may have to push a little harder to get the attention you want, but if you do you will likely succeed. Make your presence, ambitions, and goals known.
