Mercury in Scorpio: Deepening Psychological Awareness

On October 29, 3:22 PM ET, Mercury leaves Libra and enters Scorpio after an extended stay in the sign of the Scales due to its retrograde cycle. 

Mercury in Scorpio reflects an inclination to research, observe carefully, and deepen into how things function before we speak or share what we think and feel. This transit promotes and supports a deepening in our psychological awareness, emotional nature, hidden intentions and motivations, as well as a more profound understanding of how other people function.

Mercury remains in Scorpio until November 17, increasing the emphasis on the sign, where the Sun, Venus, and the Lunar South Node are already transiting. 

 

Mercury in Scorpio: Empowerment through Changes in Mindset

 

Scorpio is a Yin, Fixed, Water sign, and like all Water signs is connected with the emotional body. It correlates to transformational processes that require us to let something die in order to create space for something else, more aligned with our path’s unfolding. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, has to do with the mind, the intellect, and rationality. The Messenger correlates to how we learn, solve problems, organize, communicate, and deal with daily tasks and obligations.

 The transit of Mercury through Scorpio has the potential to clearly show us how we can empower or disempower ourselves through our thinking, and how thoughts and emotions are intertwined and feed each other all the time. Mercury’s journey through the sign can be an opportunity to explore what needs to shift in our relationship with our emotions to establish solid changes in our mindset, and vice versa, what needs to change in our mindset to establish lasting changes in how we deal with emotions.

 

Mercury has a Prominent Role during the Upcoming Lunar Eclipse

 

Mercury is going to be prominently placed during the upcoming Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, taking place on November 8. The Messenger will be in the heart of the Sun and close to the Lunar South Node, opposite Uranus and the Moon. We will experience a potent Sun-Mercury cazimi in Scorpio together with a tight Moon-Uranus conjunction, all on a Lunar Eclipse conjunct the North Node. Revelations, downloads, sudden insights, and new information becoming available at this time could be key for us to move forward, opening new doors, providing opportunities, and quickening the pace of our growth. 

A strong sense of restlessness, erratic energy, nervous tension, and need for speed are also likely. While, on the one hand, the Sun-Mercury cazimi in Scorpio indicates an incredible capacity to focus and concentrates our intellectual powers, the involvement of Uranus and the Moon reflects a more scatter-brained quality as well as a tendency to dissociate, detach from our bodies, and lose ourselves in the realms of the mind, future visions, and possibilities. Technological breakdowns, breakthroughs, and new discoveries are likely around this time. This configuration supports our attunement to future trends and currents, indicating higher chances for sudden revelations and ideas that can bring forth significant innovation.

Mercury in scorpio

The Mercury-South Node conjunction can be an opportunity to recycle old ideas or transform projects we began in the past into something new, more attuned to the direction we are going toward. The Moon-Mercury opposition invites reflection on our relationship with memory, how memory can be distorted by emotions, and how emotions affect our perception of reality. It highlights the challenges of communicating our inner experiences and sensations in a way that gives to others a clear picture of them, without being either excessively rational or excessively emotional.

 

Mercury in Aspect to Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, and Pluto

 

During its journey through Scorpio, Mercury is going to square Saturn, trine Neptune, trine Jupiter, and sextile Pluto. The square between Mercury and Saturn in Aquarius goes exact on November 10 and will be already active on the Eclipse. Mercury activates the Saturn-Uranus square, emphasizing the tension between our desire to break free from obsolete outdated thinking patterns and the pull of internalized conditioning holding us back from doing so. This is a good time to ponder and reflect upon how we may unconsciously contribute to silencing or censoring ourselves, and how our relationship with our voice and speaking our truth has been changing.

 The Mercury-Neptune trine involving the signs of Scorpio and Pisces, exact on November 12, facilitates artistic inspiration and creativity and increases our imagination. Storytelling and writing may be particularly inspired these days. Our intuition will be strengthened, and so will our capacity to translate into language the information we receive through sensations, psychic sensitivity, and energetic awareness.

Mercury forms a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn on November 15. Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio and this symbolism maximizes the Scorpionic powers of Mercury. Mercury sextile Pluto is an aspect motivating us and facilitating productive action aimed at penetrating into the depths of our subconscious minds and finding out the root cause of our patterns and habits, to gain a more complete understanding of our psychology, desires, and motivations. Finally, on November 16, we experience a Mercury-Jupiter trine, also in Scorpio and Pisces, a tremendous influence for all learning pursuits, teaching, and sharing of information and ideas through different channels. 

 

Mercury in Scorpio: Power of Persuasion

 

Mercury’s journey through Scorpio increases our powers of persuasion, our intuitive skills, and our desire for depth of connection and conversation. It reflects an inclination to expose the truth and be transparent even when it’s extremely uncomfortable. This transit offers us an invitation to reflect upon how other people’s values influence our thinking, how our intimate connections and bonds contribute to shaping our perception of reality, and how the way we think and perceive sexuality affects our experience of it. During the upcoming weeks, we may ponder upon our relationship to trust, question what trust means to us, and what contributes to building a foundation of trust in our connections. 

Our way to relate with and make sense of experiences of betrayal and abandonment may also be in the spotlight. Mercury’s journey through Scorpio offers us chances to reframe the way we perceive feelings of betrayal and abandonment by integrating a deeper understanding of ours and others’ psychology, facilitating opportunities to see our inner and outer experiences in a different light.

Full Moon in Aries: Power of Vulnerability – October 2022

On October 9, 4:54 PM ET, we experience a Full Moon at 16º32’ of Aries: this lunation, happening while the Moon is conjunct Chiron, brings to maturation a chapter of our healing journey and reminds us of the power of vulnerability. 

Full Moons are a time of maturation, release, and closure: they represent a moment to reap the fruits of our work and witness the results of our efforts. At this time of the month, the Moon opposes the Sun, aligning to the same degree of the opposite Zodiac sign. The light of the Sun offers us a glimpse of our inner world, clarifying something previously unclear or uncertain. Full Moons bring revelations and new understandings, and begin the second half of the lunar cycle, a time to let go of our efforts and our intentions and slow down the rhythm of our lives.

This cosmic event represents the peak point of the lunar cycle that started with the Libra New Moon we experienced two weeks ago, on September 25. It is also bringing to maturation a longer cycle that began with the Aries New Moon that took place six months ago, on April 1, 2022, which was also conjunct Chiron.

P.S. if you haven’t already watched, we have an hour long Full Moon in Aries video on our YouTube channel where Nina is guiding us through all the current energies. We highly recommend dedicating time for it, it is very profound and transformative.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Exploring Interdependence

 

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, the pioneer, the firestarter, the one who begins spontaneous journeys and opens new paths and directions without any guidance but the pull of instinct. When the Moon is here, emotions are quick to come and quick to go, reactivity is higher than usual, and a tendency to make decisions impulsively, following the ebbs and flows of our emotional waves, is often present.

The Aries Full Moon comes during the yearly journey of the Sun through the sign of the Scales. Libra season directs our focus and our awareness on our way to navigate one-to-one connections and all relationship dynamics. The transit of the Sun through Libra increases our attunement to the needs and desires of others and our awareness of what is needed to maintain conditions of peace in our environment. This lunation brings the spotlight very clearly on the relationship axis, inviting us to redirect our attention back to ourselves, our needs, and our desires amid the socially busy Libra season.

full moon in aries

The Aries Full Moon is bringing up the necessity to explore interdependence, finding more harmony between our urge to follow our impulses, needs, and desires and our willingness to nurture and cultivate our relationships with other people. It invites us to explore our connection with our anger, with our primal impulses, with the strength of our raw desires, and brings to our attention disempowering beliefs and assumptions relative to the power of our will and our assertion.

 

Full Moon conjunct Chiron: Power of Vulnerability

 

The Full Moon in Aries peaks as the Moon is conjunct with Chiron and while they both oppose the Sun and Venus in Libra. Chiron is a celestial body placed between Saturn and Uranus, mythologically associated with the figure of the wounded healer and teacher. In Astrology, Chiron is connected with our healing journey and has a key role in our individuation, particularly in those evolutionary processes that are born out of navigating grief and rejection from a place of openness and surrender. 

The Aries Full Moon conjunct Chiron is maximizing our sensitivity, both emotional and energetic, while illuminating wounds that aren’t fully healed. This Full Moon is revealing to us something we are being encouraged to address, inviting us to progress on our healing journey and take full responsibility for our healing.

The Moon-Chiron conjunction is likely to feel very intense emotionally, and it will shine a light on something we can no longer postpone addressing. As this alignment is happening in Aries, it is likely to highlight wounds and insecurities surrounding our strength, resiliency, leadership skills, power, confidence, and assertiveness. This Chiron-Moon conjunction in the sign of the Warrior reminds us of the power of vulnerability and challenges us to remain open even when it feels like the hardest thing we could do.

 

Full Moon opposite Venus: Conflict as Learning Opportunity

 

Chiron and the Moon are opposing Venus and the Sun in Libra. This configuration is offering us chances to gain awareness of how our wounds and insecurities are affecting our relationships and the way we show up for others. It is pointing at disempowering beliefs about our self-worth and self-value that are influencing how we experience connections, diminishing our capacity to fully receive and let in love, affection, and care.

This is a time to reflect on who we are in relation to others, and on what we need to feel free to express ourselves authentically, without compromising our needs and desires, while remaining open and available for the people in our lives. We have opportunities to explore how to establish a healthy interdependence within our connections, avoiding the extremes of enmeshed codependency and detached independence.

full moon in aries

Libra rules peace while Aries rules war. These days, we have an opportunity to reflect on our relationship with harmony and our relationship with conflict while exploring the link between conflict and intimacy. The current lunation is inviting us to discover how we can achieve a deeper, more authentic sense of peace in our lives: at this particular time, this may require confronting something or someone, cutting cords, or setting new boundaries and limits within our relationships.

 

Mars square Neptune: Confused Desires

 

The planetary ruler of the Aries Full Moon is Mars: analyzing the condition of the Red Planet gives us more information about how this Full Moon is manifesting and unfolding. Mars is in Gemini, where he remains until March 2023, as he is going to station retrograde in the sign on October 30. 

Mars is currently in a square aspect to Neptune in Pisces, which is another indicator of increased empathy, sensitivity, emotionality, and awareness of collective experiences. This alignment can correspond to feelings of not knowing how or when to act, and a sense of confusion relative to our desires and goals. These days, we may feel inclined to disperse our energy in too many directions, which is emphasized by the fact that the square is happening in Mutable signs. An inclination to avoid challenges and confrontations may be present around this time. We may find it hard to act on our desires and take responsibility for them, and it may be more challenging than usual to express and channel our anger constructively.

We invite you to use these Full Moon in Aries tools: journal and meditate together with Moon Omens Soul Family. Tap here to learn more and gain access to ritual tools.

Mars trine Saturn & Mars square Mercury

 

Nonetheless, we are also experiencing a beneficial Mars-Saturn trine, which helps counterbalance the tendencies associated with the Mars-Neptune square. This alignment supports our productivity, promoting more grounded and practical action as well as a goal-oriented approach to decision-making. Saturn inspires us to bring our ideas down to earth, prioritize intelligently, and align our choices and the way we invest our energy with our long-term desires, values, and visions.

It is also relevant to consider that Mars in Gemini has been squaring Mercury in Virgo for a while, as Mercury has recently stationed direct. This square reminds us to be mindful of not being excessively combative in our communications, emphasizing a tendency already underlined by Mars’ transit through the sign of the Twins. On this Full Moon, it is advised to take care of how we are asserting our ideas, beliefs, and opinions, and to keep into consideration the impact of the way we word our sentences. Mercury is still opposing Neptune, which points to possible confusion and misunderstandings, and offers us an invitation to attune to intuitive and subtle perceptions instead of solely relying on logic.

 

Full Moon in Aries: Focus on Healing, Evolving, and Transforming

 

The Aries Full Moon encourages us to explore ways to be in relationships that promote our individual growth and unfolding and let go of ways of relating that aren’t supportive of our personal empowerment and evolutionary development. It is an invitation to trust our capacity to form and maintain authentic connections, and reminds us that genuine relationships don’t require us to abandon ourselves, our needs, and our desires in order to exist. 

This lunation encourages us to attune to a dynamic balance between the energy we invest into “me” and the energy we invest into “us”. This is a central theme of the Aries Full Moon, which brings the spotlight on any imbalances, extremes, and misalignments in our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with others.

Meanwhile, Pluto is very powerful as it is stationary direct in Capricorn, an event likely to mark a shift and a turning point in our awareness. Together with the activation of Chiron, it indicates a powerful focus on healing, evolving, and transforming, while underlining the need to keep our hearts open and remain present with the feelings and emotions that arise.

Mercury enters Virgo: Pragmatic Thinking

On August 4, 02:58 AM ET, Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, its Earth domicile. This shift invites pragmatic thinking, adding practicality to our mental processes, supporting self-analysis, and fueling a desire to improve and optimize our inner and outer realities.

Mercury is leaving Virgo on August 25. However, due to its upcoming retrograde, beginning in Libra on September 10, it is going to be back in Virgo from September 23 to October 10.

 

Mercury in Virgo: Efficiency, Pragmatism, and Discernment

 

Mercury is the planet associated with our communication, learning, and thinking styles. It is connected with transportation, commerce, and short-distance travel and has to do with our way to perceive and relate to our environment, with our way of solving problems, and with how we deal with everyday tasks. 

Virgo correlates with themes of self-improvement and self-analysis, as through this sign we explore humility and learn to be of service. At this stage of evolution, we become aware of the importance of good habits and routines that generate optimal functionality and allow us to explore how to take the best care of our health in a holistic sense.

Mercury in virgo

In Astrology, Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo, which is traditionally considered to be both the domicile and exaltation of the planet. This means that Mercury can function very efficiently in the sign of the Maiden. While Gemini is associated with the process of accumulation and gathering of data that allows us to logically understand our reality, Virgo correlates with the Yin side of the planet and its discernment function, which allows us to discriminate what information is most useful and relevant at any time, what can have practical applications, and how we can be of service through our knowledge. 

In Virgo, Mercury operates with clarity and focus: it reflects a pragmatic and analytical approach to reality and a tendency to think critically. Our attention goes to details and nuances, our vision is sharp, we strive for perfection and efficiency in all we do, and we are naturally drawn to optimize our habitual ways of doing things. Mercury in Virgo promotes grounded self-analysis and a desire for self-improvement, as this combination of energies inspires us to focus on what does not work optimally. However, for this same reason, it can indicate a tendency to be more critical than usual of both ourselves and others.

 

Mercury in aspect to Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto

 

During its transit through Virgo, Mercury will trine Uranus in Taurus, oppose Neptune in Pisces, and trine Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury aligns with Uranus in a beneficial trine on August 16. This aspect increases our visionary capacity, innovative potential, and intellectual creativity, catalyzing a surge of original ideas and a natural attunement to out-of-the-box thinking. New insights, downloads, and creative solutions are likely to emerge spontaneously these days.

On August 21, Mercury perfects its opposition to Neptune in Pisces. This alignment favors non-linear and intuitive processes and may complicate logical and analytical tasks, possibly generating a sense of confusion and difficulties focusing for long periods of time. The Mercury-Neptune alignment could come with some forgetfulness and brain fog, nonetheless, it will nurture and enhance our fantasy life and our imaginative skills.

On August 22, Mercury forms an exact trine to Pluto in Capricorn that, together with the Mercury-Neptune opposition, will strongly increase our sensitivity to the emotional tones and energetic undercurrents of the environments we are in. The Mercury-Pluto trine indicates a penetrative and investigative mind, an inclination to focus on what is unspoken and to try to uncover the root causes of our experiences and perceptions. This aspect is very favorable for therapeutic work aimed at transforming our psychology and changing habitual thinking patterns.

 

Mercury in Virgo: Self-Improvement and Practical Service

 

Mercury in Virgo will support our capacity to solve problems and be systematic and organized, inspiring us to think practically, and improve what can be more efficient. This transit will encourage us to discern more carefully how we invest our energy, attention, and focus, reminding us of how valuable they are. On the downside, it may be tempting to adopt an excessively skeptical and cynical perception of reality, as excessive rationality and pragmatism could lead to a pessimistic mindset. 

Something to be mindful of during this transit is a tendency for extreme perfectionism, overthinking, and obsession with details, which has the potential to hold us back from progressing. We may lose sight of the big picture and feel we are never ready, never good enough to take the next step or get to the next level, and forget how, very often, we learn the most by making mistakes.

The upcoming weeks will offer us chances to improve our daily organization, modify our habits, and introduce more structure into our routines. Mercury in Virgo inspires us to explore how to apply what we have learned in practical, useful ways that allow us to be of service, explore new solutions to problems, and improve ourselves and our reality.

Mercury enters Taurus: Pragmatic Thinking

On April 10, 10:10 PM ET, Mercury leaves Aries and enters Taurus. The planet of language, thinking, and communication will remain in the sign of the Bull until April 29. In Taurus, Mercury is methodical, calm, and practical: this transit promotes pragmatic thinking and inspires us to be realistic.

During Mercury’s journey through Aries, our thinking gets faster, our communications more direct and less diplomatic, our need for movement, stimulation, and action increases. This transit reflects some amount of restlessness, a desire to do more, and a surge of mental activity. Mercury entering Taurus brings a significant energetic shift as this archetypal combination invites us to slow down our thinking and relax the general pace of our lives.

 

Mercury in Taurus: Grounding our Perceptions

 

In Astrology, Mercury correlates to our way to perceive and logically make sense of our reality. It is the planet connected to the left brain hemisphere, to how we gather information and data from our environment, to how we think, speak, and learn. It is associated with our style of problem-solving and our capacity to discern what is relevant for us in any given moment, and what is not.

The Messenger’s transit through this Fixed Earth sign adds some pragmatism to our perceptions. During this transit, we will feel inclined to trust facts more than words, and we tend to speak only when necessary. Some stubbornness may manifest, as with Mercury in Taurus we feel drawn to hold on to existing perceptions, familiar opinions, and known ideas.

Our ability to remember, structure, and retain data we believe is valuable will increase. When Mercury is in Taurus, we are not inclined to change our minds drastically, and we rather consolidate existing ways of thinking, speaking, and perceiving life. However, the Mercury-Uranus conjunction coming up could indeed bring some quick, radical changes in how we see and interface with reality.

 

Mercury conjunct Uranus & the North Node in Taurus

 

During its journey through Taurus, Mercury will join Uranus and the North Node in the sign. Mercury aligns with Uranus on April 18, an aspect signaling a high potential for innovative ideas, visionary downloads, and creative breakthroughs, which may generate tangible progress in the 3D reality. 

Mercury enters taurus

The increased mental activity could lead to a surge of nervous tension, difficulties falling or staying asleep, some amount of anxiety, and a general sense of restlessness. Around this time, there’s a high probability of suddenly changing our minds, our plans, and our perception of something.

On April 20, Mercury joins the North Node of the Moon, encouraging us to open up to learn more, embrace different opinions, share our thoughts and ideas, and communicate with others clearly. This conjunction highlights the value of our resourcefulness, our wit, our capacity to find practical solutions to the challenges we may encounter. It reminds us to harness our intellect wisely, to learn to control our mind rather than let it control us.

 

Mercury square Saturn & Mercury trine Pluto

 

Later, on April 24, Mercury squares Saturn in Aquarius, indicating the possibility of feeling silenced by our inner critic and judge, or by other people, authorities, and institutions. Issues with censorship and free speech are possible around this time. 

This aspect could reflect a tendency to dwell in negative thoughts and pessimism, yet it could also help us get to the root of limiting beliefs and disempowering perceptions that have been holding us back. Mercury square Saturn supports rational and practical pursuits that require precise planning and organization and the ability to structure our ideas wisely.

The Mercury-Saturn square reflects some amount of mental resistance to change. Nonetheless, shortly after that we experience a Mercury-Pluto trine, exact on April 28, which facilitates the evolution and transformation of outdated ways of thinking, ways of perceiving reality, and ways of communicating with others. This aspect helps us keep our minds open and embrace the changes that happen when Eclipse season begins, just a couple of days later.

 

Mercury enters Taurus: Confronting Disempowering Perceptions

 

This transit of Mercury through Taurus and the aspects that Mercury forms may invite us to confront thinking patterns and perceptions that keep us in a state of stagnation and disempowerment, preventing us from growing further. 

The second half of April could be a bit stressful on the mental level. On the one hand, Mercury in Taurus is not inclined to change, aims to create conditions of stability and interface with known, familiar realities. On the other hand, the activation of Uranus could generate unpredictability and unexpected changes of plans. Due to the high mental stimulation, especially likely around the time of the Mercury-Uranus conjunction, make sure to take time to wind down and relax, take good care of the needs of our bodies, and explore tools and techniques that help regulate our nervous system.

Mercury in Aries: Assertive Communication

On March 27, 03:45 AM ET, Mercury leaves Pisces and enters Aries. This shift is an opportunity to practice assertive communication and work on blocks that prevent us from being fully comfortable expressing our thoughts and opinions. 

The Messenger will remain in Aries until April 11. Together with the beginning of Aries season, Mercury’s ingress into the sign of the Ram increases the presence of Fire element in the skies, after a few months of strong prominence of Air and Water. 

 

Mercury in Aries: Individualistic Thinking

 

Mercury, the planet of communication, is associated with the rational mind, inductive reasoning, and language. It has to do with how we logically make sense of our surroundings, perceive our reality, interface with our environment, and share with others what is taking place in our minds. The planetary ruler of Gemini and Virgo correlates with our style of learning and problem solving, and with how we organize and manage our daily tasks. 

The yearly transit of Mercury through Pisces brings a surge of poetic inspiration and deepens our intuitive perceptions, yet, it can correspond to a sense of ongoing confusion. While the Messenger travels through the last sign of the Zodiac, we may struggle to organize our days effectively. We often get lost in fantasy and imagination and may have hard times getting practical things done. 

Mercury enters Aries

The ingress of Mercury into Aries brings a surge of mental energy and a desire for life to speed up. During the upcoming weeks, we are likely to express more directly and boldly what we want, feel, and think. We will say it as it is and there will be a general tendency to put ourselves and our desires first. Mercury in Aries is about independent thinking: this transit increases our need for freedom of speech and thought, inspires us to assert our opinions confidently, and reminds us of our right to say what we have to say. 

 

Mercury conjunct Chiron & square Pluto

 

During its journey through Aries, Mercury joins Chiron in the sign and then squares Pluto in Capricorn. The conjunction with Chiron takes place on April 2, just a few hours after the Aries New Moon has taken place. Sun, Moon, and Mercury will all align with Chiron almost simultaneously to begin a new chapter of our healing journey, bringing up unresolved emotions, inner conflicts, and unprocessed psychological material. 

Around this time, we will have chances to work on fear of speaking up and being attacked for expressing our thoughts honestly. We may feel silenced by others or end up self-censoring, due to fear of someone else’s reactions. The Mercury-Chiron conjunction is a good opportunity to heal wounds related to self-assertion and self-expression.

Towards the end of its transit through Aries, on April 10, Mercury squares Pluto. This aspect signals an obsessive need to find out the truth and the root cause of what is bothering us. We may notice some mental stress, verbal and intellectual power struggles, tense confrontations, and combative conversations. During these days, It is advised to take care of not being too blunt or direct: an effort to be more patient and tolerant is likely to be beneficial. Making sure to breathe and take a moment to reflect on our intentions before we speak will help avoid unnecessary trouble. 

While the square between Mercury and Pluto signals a tendency to end up in destructive and compulsive thinking loops and be intensely self-critical, it also gives us possibilities to deepen our psychological understanding of ourselves and others. Transformative ideas may come through at this time.

 

Mercury enters Aries: Assertive Communication

 

Mercury’s transit through Aries will inspire us to explore what happens if we follow our instinct without much second-guessing and find the courage to take action on our ideas. Compared to the previous weeks, we will notice more mental clarity and self-confidence. We may feel easily bored and need to put things in motion rapidly.

Arguments and heated conversations may happen, as Mercury in Aries can reflect a tendency to communicate more aggressively than usual. We may forget to think before we speak and express our thoughts in a way that isn’t very diplomatic. This transit reflects an individualistic way of thinking and, possibly, an unconscious self-centeredness. While our mental energy is likely to increase, we may notice some restlessness and a tendency to jump from one thing to another. This could make it hard for us to fully concentrate on one task. 

Mercury enters Aries

Mercury’s journey through Aries is a good opportunity to practice physical activities that require strategic thinking and a fair amount of competitiveness. This transit will support our originality and creativity. During the upcoming weeks, our thought processes will be faster than usual, our communication more direct and passionate, and adopting a decisive and outspoken attitude will be easier

Mercury enters Pisces: the Doors of Perception

On March 9, 8:33 PM ET, Mercury entered Pisces after an extended stay in Aquarius linked to its retrograde cycle. Mercury will remain in the sign of the Fish until March 27: during this time, the doors of perception will open. We will have chances to connect with our intuition, give space to our fantasy, and explore different channels through which we can express ourselves.

While Mercury in Aquarius is rational, objective, and futuristic, Mercury in Pisces is sensitive, intuitive, and imaginative. During this transit, our receptivity to subtle energies and frequencies will increase, our habitual style of elaborating information may change, and we are likely to notice a surge of artistic inspiration.

 

Intuition, Creativity, and Going with the Flow

 

In Astrology, Mercury is the planet associated with logic, rationality, critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving. Its condition gives us information about our learning style and our way of gathering and assimilating information and data. Mercury is at home in Gemini and Virgo. In Pisces, the Messenger doesn’t express its qualities as we would expect, as this is not a sign that is inherently rational, logical, or linear.

Mercury wants to understand reality logically, while Pisces relates to it through feelings and sensations. While Mercury wants to plan and organize, Pisces prefers to improvise and decide intuitively. For this reason, during the upcoming weeks, we may find it hard to stay focused or engage in analytical, linear pursuits. Respecting a fixed schedule and routine may be more challenging than usual. We may prefer to go with the flow and see what shows up on our path: this attitude could lead us to unexpected and beautiful destinations.

 

Mercury in Pisces: Exploring New Channels

 

While Mercury is in Pisces, we embark on a journey to the realms of dreams and infinite possibilities. This transit will support our spiritual awareness and increase our desire to relate with life through all of our senses rather than only through the rational mind. We are likely to pick up information that isn’t immediately understandable logically through channels that we may not be familiar with. While on the one hand, Mercury in Pisces will support our intuitive capacities, on the other, it may be challenging to tell the difference between reality and fantasy, fact and fiction.

Mercury in Pisces

During the upcoming weeks, we may find it challenging to connect with our common sense, logic, and practicality. With Mercury in Pisces, we tend to see the highest spiritual potential of everything, everyone, and every situation. It is advisable to make an effort to think objectively and take into account the details and the facts of what’s happening in the present moment before making important decisions.

 

Mercury conjunct Jupiter and Neptune: Opening the Doors of Perception

 

During its journey through Pisces, Mercury will join Jupiter and Neptune, the traditional and modern ruler of the sign. Mercury aligns with Jupiter on March 21, increasing our need and desire to search for the meaning and the purpose of life. We may feel drawn to explore new spiritual philosophies, deepen our metaphysical studies, and seek intuitive, experiential learning modalities. This combination enhances the activation of our right brain, inspiring non-linear ways of thinking, expressing ourselves, and perceiving reality. We will likely be focused on the big picture and, possibly, miss out on some details.

Shortly later, on March 23, Mercury perfects its conjunction with Neptune. The Mercury-Neptune conjunction will magnify our intuition and open the doors of perception. We may channel information from other planes coming through during dreams or meditative states and become extremely receptive to the feelings and thoughts of others, almost to a telepathic level. A downside of this aspect can be a sense of brain fog and confusion and difficulties concentrating for long periods of time.

Mercury in Pisces

We will begin to feel the Mercury-Jupiter-Neptune alignment around the time of the Full Moon in Virgo, on March 18, and approximately until Mercury enters Aries, on March 27. This triple conjunction will incredibly amplify our sensitivity and could catalyze the development or refinement of extrasensory abilities, healing gifts, and psychic talents. Mercury, Jupiter, and Neptune will bring our attention to the imaginative, the intuitive, and the abstract, facilitating a new understanding of the fabric of reality.

 

Mercury enters Pisces: Importance of Discernment

 

Altered states of consciousness are likely to be easier to access throughout the upcoming weeks and our creativity is going to be supported by this transit, particularly by the Mercury-Neptune conjunction. Our writing may be especially inspired and poetic, all creative pursuits and artistic activities that provide us channels for self-expression will be favored.

During this transit, our feelings and our emotions, as well as the feelings and emotions of others, could strongly affect our way of thinking and perceiving reality. What’s going on in the collective may impact us particularly strongly, and feelings of overwhelm may influence our capacity to think clearly.

With Mercury in Pisces, it is more important than usual to be discerning relative to what we take in and allow into our field, particularly in terms of news, information, and energies. As we are likely to be more sensitive than usual, our boundaries may be more permeable: it is advised to pay attention to what affects us and in what ways, and establish an adequate filter accordingly, to protect our energy.

Mars enters Capricorn: Mastering our Will

On January 24, 7:53 AM ET, Mars leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn. Mars will remain in the sign of the Sea Goat until March 6, when it will enter Aquarius simultaneously with Venus.

In Capricorn, Mars expresses its qualities in a structured and practical way. This combination of energies supports self-motivation and self-determination. As a Cardinal Earth archetype, Capricorn is the master builder: with Mars here, we want to manifest something tangible with our life force, and we don’t like wasting time. The upcoming transit will inspire us to strive for efficiency and excellence and aim to create something solid, valuable, and long-lasting.

 

Mars enters Capricorn: Commitment to Self-Mastery

 

The transit of Mars in Sagittarius corresponds to a tendency to channel our energy and drive in a multitude of directions. During this transit, we want to gain more experience, expand our philosophical understanding of life, and explore all of our desires, no matter how contradictory they are. 

Mars entering Capricorn marks a clear shift: we now desire to structure the wisdom and the experience we have gained and channel our life force in a specific direction. We aim to build something that will stand the test of time and we are ready to remove all obstacles on our path. With Mars in Capricorn, we strive to achieve self-mastery and learn to direct our will consciously. 

Mars enters Capricorn

Both Mars and Capricorn are Cardinal archetypes of initiation: this transit is a good moment to start committing to something, set goals, and begin new paths. We have an opportunity to structure our intentions and plans, define a clear strategy, and gain mastery over how we spend time and channel our energy. 

 

Exploring our Idea of Success

 

During the upcoming weeks, we may ask ourselves what we want to work hard for, what is worth our time and efforts. Capricorn reminds us not to be in a hurry, that good things take time, that there’s no need to rush the process. Mars in Capricorn reflects a stoic, disciplined, and hardworking attitude. During this transit, it is important to make sure that we are not being too hard on ourselves, that we are taking care of our emotional needs and not only of practical ones.

We have a chance to consider the true motivations behind our desires, and to contemplate whether our idea of success is truly ours, or it has been affected and distorted by the conditioning and programming we have been exposed to. We may realize if we are defining our success and achievements with external metrics and decide to align with different ones. 

 

Mars conjunct Venus: New Ways of Being in Relationship

 

During its journey through Capricorn, Mars will conjunct Venus. Exceptionally, there will be two Mars-Venus conjunctions in less than a month due to Venus’ reduced speed after its retrograde period. The first one will happen in Capricorn on February 16, the same day of the Full Moon in Leo, and the second one will be on 0° of Aquarius, on March 6. 

The Venus-Mars conjunction in Capricorn indicates the importance of aligning our relationship choices and the way we invest our energy with our values and long-term intentions. The days before the exact aspect, we may feel an urge to detach from people, lifestyles, and ways of spending time that don’t add value to our lives. The conjunction marks a need for experimentation and discovery of new ways of being in relationships. These will, however, be soon reassessed as the two planets meet again in Aquarius a few weeks later.

 

Mars square Chiron, trine Uranus, & sextile Neptune

 

On February 4, Mars squares Chiron, now transiting in Mars’ domicile of Aries. Their alignment brings up conflicts centered around self-assertion and self-repression and highlights any tendency to hold back what is instinctual or spontaneous due to fear or insecurity. Mars-Chiron aspects invite us to heal wounds linked to our relationship with masculine energy, particularly correlated to expectations of rejection when we take initiative.

On February 6, Mars trines Uranus in Taurus: this is a supportive alignment that could inspire us to act in original and unusual ways. As both planets are traveling through Earth signs, we may have unexpected work opportunities, possibilities to make an income, or chances to create something eccentric and futuristic by blending tradition and innovation.

Mars enters Capricorn

Mars forms a sextile to Neptune in Pisces on February 23, an aspect of opportunities that will give us possibilities to act in alignment with our ideals and dreams. It could inspire us to reassess our boundaries and redefine what we are available to invest our time and energy in.

 

Mars conjunct Pluto: Power and Rage

 

Mars joins Pluto on March 3, fueling a process of purification of our will and intentions that encourages us to align the desires of our ego with our Soul’s desires. The Mars-Pluto conjunction promotes a profound inquiry on what is truly moving us and invites us to come into contact with the root of our anger, of our ambition, of our wanting. 

This aspect gives us opportunities to understand what’s beneath our cravings, what our unconscious intentions and motivations are. By exploring our rage, we have a chance to liberate a huge amount of power that can be used as fuel to move forward and improve our lives or can be extremely destructive. 

Mars enters Capricorn

The upcoming Mars-Pluto conjunction is the last one in Capricorn for about 250 years. This alignment closes a long cycle of deep, radical transformation. Mars joining Pluto will give us the strength to break free from old structures, let go of past intentions and desires, and create space to discover new ones.

 

Mars enters Capricorn: Striving for Self-Mastery

 

While Mars is in the sign of the Sea Goat, we tend to proceed cautiously. Our insecurities may generate some amount of self-repression, a tendency to conceal our emotions, and a general distrust of our instinct and impulses. Fear of failure, of wasting time, and of losing control may arise. During this time, we may take care not to cut ourselves off from our feelings and needs in order to work more or get faster results. 

While this transit fuels a desire for tangible, concrete achievements, it is important to strive to balance between work and rest and not push ourselves excessively hard. We have an opportunity to achieve a new level of self-mastery rooted in self-knowledge and self-respect, that doesn’t involve denying our humanness or detaching from our emotions in order to achieve more.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius: Opportunity to Decondition

On January 14, 06:41 AM ET, Mercury stations retrograde at 10°20’ of Aquarius, offering us an invitation to reflect and an opportunity to decondition. Mercury will come back to Capricorn on January 25 and station direct on February 3 at 24°22’ of the sign of the Sea-Goat.

While Mercury is in retrograde motion, we have a chance to rethink, review, reevaluate, and reconsider our communication habits, our way to share our ideas and thoughts, our thinking patterns, and our perception of reality itself. In Aquarius, this is likely to play out in our relationship with social movements, groups, and communities, both online and offline. It could affect our ideologies, our dreams for the future, and our concept of social progress as a whole.

 

Mercury Retrograde: Invitation to Reflect

 

Mercury is the planet of logic, thought, communication, and language. It is connected with our perception of reality and with how we classify and mentally relate with our surroundings. The ruler of Gemini and Virgo is associated with problem-solving, discernment, and how we gather and filter data and information.

Mercury retrograde is a common event, happening three to four times a year and lasting for approximately three weeks. Retrogrades happen when a planet slows down and appears to be moving backward from our perspective on Earth. Astrologically, these are times of decreased momentum, an invitation to introspect and reevaluate the direction we want to take before moving forward again with more clarity when the planet turns direct.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

In popular Astrology, Mercury retrograde is infamous and feared for its correlation with misunderstandings, forgetfulness, miscommunications, travel delays, and technological issues. Nonetheless, this transit has an often overlooked evolutionary potential. All retrogrades accelerate our individuation process in specific areas of our lives by encouraging us to turn within and question our existing reality, narratives, and ways of being.

 

Mercury retrograde in Aquarius: Questioning our Perception of Reality

 

Aquarius correlates with the Higher Mind, the Hive Mind, group consciousness, scientific discoveries, innovation, social progress, deconditioning, and individuation. The sign of the Water Bearer teaches us objectivity and detachment, but it also encourages us to dare to be different from the norm, rebel from existing standards, and explore alternative ones.

In Aquarius, Mercury expresses itself eccentrically and creatively. This transit connects our lower minds with the Higher Mind, facilitating innovation and out-of-the-box thinking, inspiring us to explore different ways to see and interpret reality. During this retrograde cycle, we may reexamine our ideals and ideologies, reevaluate our relationships with the groups we are part of, reconceptualize our current idea of progress, as well as our dreams and visions for the future.

Mercury stations retrograde while conjunct Saturn and square Uranus in Taurus, and activates the ongoing square between the modern and traditional rulers of Aquarius. For this reason, during the upcoming weeks, changes and revisions of the current norms, rules, restrictions, and regulations established by authorities are quite likely to happen. Simultaneously, more and more people will feel the urge to reclaim and defend our right to think and express ourselves freely.

 

Mercury back to Capricorn: Reviewing the Past to Step into the Future

 

On January 25, 10:05 PM ET, retrograde Mercury comes back to Capricorn, inspiring a deep reassessment of the social, familial, cultural, and religious conditioning we have absorbed and internalized and that still affects our thoughts and perceptions. Mercury retrograde in Capricorn gives us an opportunity to review our past experiences and the narratives they generated: this is a time to reconsider and rethink our relationship with authorities, institutions, governments, and society as a whole.

Just a couple of days after entering Capricorn, on January 28, Mercury joins Pluto for the second time of a cycle of three, offering us an invitation to dig deeper into our psychological material. Mercury retrograde conjunct Pluto is a wonderful moment for deep therapeutic and psychological work aimed at working through old experiences that generated disempowering thinking habits and limiting perceptions of the world around us.

The last Mercury-Pluto conjunction will take place on February 11, when Mercury will be in direct motion. This aspect has the potential to give us fresh insights into our psychology, our behavior, and the way our mind works while reminding us of the power of our thoughts and intentions, underlying the importance of being aware of the stories playing out in our head.

 

Mercury retrograde in Aquarius: Opportunity to Decondition

 

Mercury will come back to Aquarius on February 14 and its post-shadow phase will end on February 24. As the Messenger comes back to the degree where the retrograde started, it completes the integration of what happened during the previous phases.

We are entering a time to carefully explore how social conditioning has distorted our perspective of reality: Mercury retrograde in Aquarius urges us to question our perceptions and gain awareness of how the information we take in affects us. This transit promotes a process of intellectual deconditioning and encourages us to think for ourselves.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

We have a chance to reconsider our role in our community, our way to assert our opinions or express our thoughts in group contexts. During the upcoming weeks, we may become aware of limiting thinking patterns and narratives that hold us back from aligning with our essence, of ways of communicating and perceiving life that aren’t constructive. Mercury retrograde in Aquarius gives us a chance to reflect on our vision for the future of society. This transit may inspire us  to join groups of like minds we feel aligned with and separate from those that are not.

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Breaking Point

On December 4, 02:34 AM ET, we experience a Total Solar Eclipse at 12°16’ Sagittarius. This cosmic event will be visible from Antarctica and, in part, from some Southern regions of the Southern hemisphere of the globe. While Lunar Eclipses can be watched safely, Solar Eclipses should never be watched with the naked eye.

This New Moon Total Solar Eclipse is a breaking point that culminates a cycle of 18 months during which we experienced Eclipses on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis: the Lunar Nodes are entering Taurus and Scorpio in January, beginning a new karmic cycle. For the upcoming year and a half, Eclipses will happen in Taurus and Scorpio: this is the last one in Sagittarius until 2029.

To celebrate the arrival of New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, on December 4, 9:45 PM ET, we are hosting Global Live New Moon Total Solar Eclipse Meditation on our YouTube channel. We invite you to join us, and invite others to meditate together with us. Tap here to find our scheduled live meditation.

 

Solar Eclipse on the South Node: a Beginning with Flavor of an Ending

 

A New Moon takes place when the Moon joins the Sun on the same degree of the same Zodiac sign. These events mark the beginning of the lunar cycle: they are a moment to set intentions, plant seeds, start anew, and envision our future. Solar Eclipses are very intense New Moons that take place when the luminaries align close to the North or the South Node of the Moon: they mark potent turning points in our lives and in collective history, and they often correspond with life-changing events. 

The current Eclipse is happening on the South Node: this point in space represents something we know well, something we master, something we are familiar with, talents and gifts we naturally express, qualities we easily connect with. It relates to our past, our karmic history, and our emotional attachments. When a New Moon Solar Eclipse takes place on the lunar South Node, it can be considered a new beginning with the flavor of an ending that requires a lot of letting go. As there won’t be another Eclipse in Sagittarius for the next eight years, this is, even more, the case. 

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius

Sun and Moon aligning on the South Node bring up unfinished business, unresolved issues, deeply buried emotions, something we need to integrate, release, or detach from. The current Total Solar Eclipse sets in motion a process of purification and purging: as it is happening in the sign of Sagittarius, this is likely to highlight the need to let go of beliefs, attachment to ideologies, philosophies, and ways of making sense of the world that we no longer feel aligned with.

 

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Dissolution of Beliefs

 

Eclipses represent a time of high volatility, fast change, and unpredictability, where time feels different than usual and out-of-the-ordinary experiences become the norm. Solar Eclipses happen when the Moon is placed between the Earth and the Sun in such a way that prevents sunlight from reaching us. Because sunlight is what makes life on Earth possible, these events have been equally feared and respected for a long time. 

When the Sun is being eclipsed, it may be hard to connect with our inner light, with our joy, with our creativity, with our sense of purpose. A Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius may correspond with a feeling of loss of meaning, a dissolution of beliefs, a sense of not knowing what our truth is anymore: during these days, connecting with feelings of hope and faith may be more challenging than usual. Nonetheless, this event sets in motion a process of rebirth, that will unfold throughout the upcoming six months.

 

Solar Eclipse conjunct Mercury & square Neptune

 

The Sun and the Moon are in tight conjunction with Mercury, the ruler of the Gemini North Node. Their aspect highlights the urge to expand our perception of reality and our intellectual understanding of it, as well as a desire to share what we are learning with others. Dogmatism, arrogance, self-righteousness, and a need to convert others to our viewpoint in order to feel safe can represent shadow expressions linked with this configuration, which highlights the importance to honor our personal truth and allow everyone else to do the same. 

On another note, Sun, Moon, and Mercury are all square Neptune in Pisces. This alignment can reflect some confusion and uncertainty relative to our identity, to what we think, believe, and feel. Our sensitivity to others’ emotions, thoughts, and experiences will increase: our boundaries may be blurred or hard to keep, as we struggle to distinguish between what’s ours and what’s not. Positively, this configuration increases our fantasy, imagination, and creativity. It strengthens our connection with our intuition and inspires us to embrace a spiritual perspective of life that doesn’t require a rational or logical understanding of circumstances.

 

Solar Eclipse quincunx Uranus & trine Chiron

 

The Sun and the Moon in Sagittarius are forming a quincunx, an alignment of crisis and paradox, to Uranus in Taurus. This aspect is increasing the unpredictability already present on this Eclipse: the activation of Uranus always brings up a desire to fight for our right to be ourselves, for our freedom, and our sovereignty

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius

On a collective level, the possibilities of disruptions, protests, and social unrest are very high, as our desire to break free from limitations and implement innovation and progress increases. On the personal level, there are chances of feeling emotionally alienated and disconnected from our environment and the people around us: we may find it hard to reconcile different needs, emotions, desires, and drives.

On a different note, the trine between Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Chiron in Aries suggests ease of psychological and intellectual understanding of our emotional reactions. These aspects facilitate a better awareness of what’s behind our triggers. Yet, with trines, chances and information are often unnoticed: as always, it is up to us to make the choices and the effort required to generate tangible change.

 

Jupiter square the Lunar Nodes & Jupiter square Mars

 

Jupiter, the planetary ruler of Sagittarius, is currently traveling through the last degrees of Aquarius, forming a square aspect to Mars in Scorpio and to the Lunar Nodes on the first degree of Gemini and Sagittarius. When planets square the Nodes, they point to karmic dynamics that need to be solved for our evolution to take place. As the ruler of the South Node of the Moon, Jupiter has been an important player for the last year and a half: the South Node ruler indicates our habitual way of operating in order to meet our emotional and security needs, and offers us keys to understanding patterns and attachments we bring with us from our past.

Jupiter’s transit through Aquarius has been bringing our focus on our relationship with the collective, with technology, and with social movements, highlighting the sense of alienation that often arises as a result of our deconditioning process. Jupiter enters Pisces on December 28 and will continue to square the Lunar Nodes for the upcoming weeks, emphasizing issues of authenticity, transparency, and integrity, reminding us of the importance of acting in alignment with our beliefs and values

The simultaneous square between Jupiter in Aquarius and Mars in Scorpio suggests the possibility of taking impulsive actions and a strong desire to fight to defend our freedom, our rights, our beliefs, and our ideals. Excessively destructive reactions and taking action without pondering the consequences of our choices are risks associated with this aspect.

Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Living Authentically

 

While the Eclipse is taking place, Venus is approaching a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn and is in her pre-shadow phase. Venus will station retrograde on December 19, just a few hours after the Full Moon in Gemini, the lunation that culminates the cycle starting now. The symbolism of Venus will be very active during the upcoming weeks, and it will be colored by Plutonian themes of death, rebirth, and transformation. Their alignment intensifies our feelings and anticipates big changes in our relationships, in our value system, and our finances.

This Total Solar Eclipse can correspond to a sense of crises in faith and a feeling of not knowing what we believe in, not knowing how to make sense of what we are going through, of the circumstances we are facing. This is a time when we are called to detach from old beliefs and from our attachment to a certain worldview or version of the truth. 

As we keep letting go of the past, we can get to a place where we feel we don’t know anything, and we can’t hold onto anything anymore: this can feel scary and disorienting. Nonetheless, welcoming the feeling of being lost and inhabiting the state of not knowing can represent an opportunity to create space for something buried within ourselves to emerge, unfold, and begin to shape a new path.

December 2021 Astrology Update: Surprising Closure

December brings the year to closure in an intense, unpredictable, and surprising way. We end 2021 with a powerful Astrology, just like we started it. During the upcoming weeks, we will experience the last Eclipse of the current cycle on the Gemini-Sagittarius axis, a powerful New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. Later, Venus will station retrograde in Capricorn in exact conjunction with Pluto, just a few hours after the last Full Moon of the year in Gemini, and while Chiron stations direct in Aries. 

At the very end of the month, we will experience the culmination of the last exact Saturn-Uranus square. This alignment has represented the main astrological theme of the year, and it will continue to be active throughout most of 2022, even if it won’t be exact again. Finally, Jupiter will come back to its home sign Pisces, ending the year on an optimistic note.

Let’s have a closer look at the main astrological transit for the upcoming month.

 

Neptune stations direct in Pisces

Dec 1, 2021, 08:22 AM ET

On the first day of the new month, Neptune stations direct after being in apparent backward motion for roughly six months. This event may reveal to us where we have been too caught up in illusions or fantasies. When the veil is lifted, we may experience some confusion and disorientation, linked to the sense of suspension that often comes up when we transition from one level of consciousness to the next one. Neptune stationing direct invites us to surrender to the wisdom of and timing of life and to trust what we are meeting on our path, even if its purpose isn’t clear yet

 

New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius

Dec 4, 2021, 02:42 AM ET

The New Moon Total Solar Eclipse marks an intense new beginning while bringing to completion a karmic cycle: it is the last Eclipse in Sagittarius until 2029, and it is happening on the South Node of the Moon, which relates to our past, our story, our natural talents, what we know well and are familiar with. As the Sun and the Moon meet the South Node, we can expect some emotional purging and processing. A Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius may bring a feeling of loss of meaning, of not knowing what to turn to. As we detach from old beliefs, assumptions, and ways of making sense of life, we often perceive a sense of void that can feel scary. This void, however, is precisely what creates the necessary space for a new and deeper faith to emerge.

 

Mars enters Sagittarius & Mercury enters Capricorn

Dec 13, 2021, 04:53 AM ET & Dec 13, 2021, 12:52 PM ET 

On the same day, both Mars and Mercury change signs. Mars leaves magnetic Scorpio and enters cheerful Sagittarius. The way we go after what we want will change, and it is likely to be less obsessive and more expansive. With Mars in Scorpio, we act with determination and intense focus, and we are single-minded in our pursuits: Mars entering Sagittarius inspires us to widen our horizons, explore different options, and consider more possibilities.

Meanwhile, Mercury leaving Sagittarius and entering Capricorn reflects a tendency to get serious, think about our future, organize ourselves better, and manage our days in a more structured way. During this transit, we tend to think more and speak less: we appreciate silence and choose our words carefully. Mental discipline, focus, and commitment will be facilitated: Mercury in Capricorn will encourage us to embark on new learning journeys or to build something with the knowledge we already have.

 

Full Moon in Gemini, Venus conjunct Pluto

Dec 18, 2021,11:35 PM ET

This Full Moon culminates a cycle that began with a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini, bringing to light information, facts, and data previously unknown, unavailable, or uncertain. This lunation will energize our minds, inspiring us to learn and expand our understanding of reality: new ideas are likely to emerge, and new connections could be born. 

While the Full Moon takes place, Venus is conjunct Pluto and stationary retrograde: this alignment adds a scorpionic quality to this lunation, which marks the beginning of a period of extreme transformation of how we experience relationships. Our relationship with ourselves, with our values, and with money will also change. This alignment will happen for the second time on December 25, while Venus will be retrograde. Venus conjunct Pluto inspires a deep analysis of repetitive patterns that show up in our relationships and increases our desire for loyalty and commitment.

 

Venus stations Retrograde in Capricorn, Chiron stations direct in Aries

Dec 19, 2021, 05:36 AM ET

Just a few hours after the Full Moon, Venus begins her retrograde journey, which will be a time of reassessment of our values, financial situation, love, and social life. In particular, we will review and reconsider our boundaries and the way we relate to the limitations we encounter. Substantial changes in the world economy and volatility in financial markets are also likely. Venus is stationing conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and will remain in Capricorn until March. During this time, we will reevaluate the way we have been structuring our life and we are likely to undergo deep and lasting inner changes. Simultaneously, Chiron stationing direct in Aries reminds us that working on wounds that affect our self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-assertion represents the foundation for improving our relationship with others.

 

Capricorn season begins

Dec 21, 2021, 11:00 AM ET

The Sun entering Capricorn begins a new season: the Solstice represents either the shortest day or the shortest night of the year, according to where on Earth we are living. The Winter Solstice brings our attention to how we find our way through the darkness, while the Summer Solstice marks the peak of light and creative energy available to us. Astrologically, the Capricorn season represents a time of introspection, maturation, and self-knowledge. We are being encouraged to reflect on what we want to work hard for and why, what we want to build, and whether it has value in the long term. At this time of the year, we are encouraged to cultivate discipline and to carefully evaluate how we want to invest our time and energy.

 

Saturn in Aquarius square Retrograde Uranus in Taurus

Dec 24, 2021, 02:16 AM ET 

The last Saturn-Uranus square brings to a culmination and breaking point the battle between old and new, past and future, tradition and innovation that we have been experiencing for the whole year. Socio-political and financial issues are likely to be in the spotlight: there might be important global changes and intense protests as a result of new regulations being implemented. On the personal level, we could notice an inner conflict between our desire to move forward and do something entirely different and our need to hold back to the known and the familiar. The tension generated by this aspect, when channeled creatively, can result in lasting innovation and in a productive renovation of outdated structures and models.

 

Jupiter enters Pisces

Dec 28, 2021, 11:10 PM ET

At the end of the year, Jupiter comes back to Pisces. This transit may bring our attention back to issues we were focusing on between May and July 2021, during the first ingress of Jupiter in the sign. Jupiter enters Pisces in a square aspect to the Lunar Nodes in Gemini and Sagittarius. For the upcoming month, this alignment will be active, emphasizing issues of honesty and authenticity: it may reflect some insecurity about what is true and what isn’t, and what to believe in. Jupiter will remain in Pisces for most of 2022, expanding our desire for spiritual growth and our drive to find the true meaning of life. This transit is likely to increase our urge to turn to spirituality and ancient wisdom to gain a deeper perspective of what’s happening within us and all around us.

 

December Astrology Update: Our Invitation

 

2021 has been a year of transition, a year of adjustment, a year where we have been challenged to reinvent ourselves over and over again while adapting and trying to keep up with the deep systemic changes that are taking place. A lot is going on this month and, astrologically, we are experiencing many long-term transits that speak about cycles coming to closure.

When we are transitioning from old systems, structures, and ways of being to new ones, we have to go through a necessary phase of exploration and experimentation where we may not know exactly what we are doing or what’s happening. New solutions don’t emerge immediately: as we wonder how to solve our current issues without much success, fear tends to come up. This phase usually brings up some doubts and uncertainty, and a temptation to try to remain in control of how everything is unfolding. 

As we prepare to leave 2021 behind and approach 2022, we are encouraged to trust the unknown and have faith in our capacity to navigate it, while keeping in mind that we are always being supported, even in ways that we don’t immediately understand.
