Welcome to December
Tis the Season to be jolly!! At last, after the extraordinary year that we have had, especially the past couple of months, December offers up space to expand, explore new horizons and find fresh optimism. And boy are we ready for that, especially for those of you with planets in Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus.
2022 has been an incredibly transformational time for everyone. Easy…. No! But it has provided the opportunity to dig deep and understand any subconscious patterns that have defined us and limited our capacity to live and work in a way that is aligned with our purpose and provides meaning.
The good news is, December offers up plenty of fresh energy and inspiration to consider what we want to learn about and what we want to create moving into 2023. Our sense of adventure is strong and our yearning to expand our lives beckons to be satiated.
On December 4, Neptune, the planet connected to your imagination, creativity and spirituality ends his annual retrograde which ramps up our capacity to dream.
By the end of the month, there’s a determination to get practical and take action to turn your dreams into reality when Jupiter re-enters action-oriented Aries from Dec 21 and both Mercury and Venus move through strategic, empire-building Capricorn from 7 Dec onwards. Note Mercury will commence his final retrograde of the year from Dec 29 through til January 19, 2023 s,o the year kicks off with a strong emphasis on reviewing your professional plan.
Note that the month does have an underlying quality of depleted energy levels, especially for those of you with planets in Gemini, Aries, or Scorpio. This is due to Mars, which represents your drive and determination, continuing his retrograde journey through Gemini and making a tense connection with Neptune.
But, by month’s end, you’ll be ready to review your professional direction when Mercury commences his final retrograde for 2022 on 29 Dec. So be mindful that the beginning of 2023 is ideal for slowing down the pace, relaxing and reconsidering your business strategy.
So, lots to lean into this month!
You’re almost there – the end of the year is nigh and I know you need a rest!!! Mars, your ruling planet continues his retrograde journey through Gemini which for many of you has been wreaking havoc on your energy levels and having you juggle way more balls than you’d like.
The good news is that on the 21st of the month, Jupiter returns to your sign once again expanding your horizons and bringing through new opportunities. This should provide a boost to your energy levels, inspire you to learn and help you connect with others in your field to support you realising your potential. For clues as to which of these it will be, think back to what was happening for you between May and October this year when Jupiter first visited. Abundance surrounds you in this way up until May 2023 so take advantage of what’s on offer!
The very social Full Moon in Gemini on 8 December brings opportunity to find the right balance between your lower and higher minds or in other words your logical and spiritual mind.

The New Moon on 23 December is ideal for setting business and career goals. Use the Christmas break to plant seeds and embody the feeling of your professional life soaring in 2023.
Finally, the winds of change have arrived. You’ve been on a roller coaster for the past couple of years and with the eclipse season over, December brings through a sense of expansion and excitement for the new! You’ve been working your butt off learning and developing and when 2023 arrives it will offer you the chance to put your new skills and knowledge to good use!!
In the final month of the year, Jupiter is lighting up your social sector. Make the most of this professionally by getting out and about connecting with clients, business partners and potential alliances in 2023. As I am writing this I hear you saying to yourself “Isn’t that what December is all about anyway?”, and I say Yes.

It is also a great time for you to tune into what your daily needs are and your ideal routine. A wonderful process for you this month is to reflect on the year that has been. What have you commited to doing on a daily basis that has served you well? What are you now ready to bring into your daily routine? Remember, tending to your wellbeing requires a steady, regular commitment. So consider which activities are “easy” and “fun” for you to commit to in 2023.
