Astrology Transits March 2023 – Entry Into the Future

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. — Albert Einstein


Last month when the emphasis was on Aquarius, the rational mind was ruling. We were tuning into sudden insights and sparks of understanding that seemingly came from out-of-the-blue like a flash of lightning. Now, as the planets move into Pisces, we are still receiving messages from source, but they are quieter, more subtle and more intuitive. 

Aquarius rules sudden, startling insights, while Pisces rules an intuitive, inner knowing. Both ways of tuning into your higher self and higher spiritual guidance are valid and helpful. So, continue to nurture your sudden insights, while you develop your ability to use your intuitive sixth sense.


March 2: Venus Conjunct Jupiter at 12 Degrees Aries and Mercury Conjunct Saturn at 29 Degrees Aquarius. Venus conjunct Jupiter is one of the most beneficial aspects of all. It is known as the “follow your bliss” aspect. It is lucky financially, socially and romantically. The only downside is that it only lasts for a couple of days. Enjoy it while you can. Mercury enters Pisces later in the day. Mercury in Pisces heightens your intuition and brings increased day dreams, night dreams, fantasies and imagination. It’s wise to double check all business and financial dealings until Mercury enters Aries on March 19th.


March 6: Sun Sextile Uranus at 15 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. Use the Sun sextile Uranus to make needed changes and to find unique ways to implement new habits. The sign of Pisces brings intuition and imagination, while the sign of Taurus brings practicality.


March 7: Full Moon at 16 Degrees 40’ Virgo. The Virgo Full Moon lights the way as Saturn enters Pisces. Because Virgo and Pisces are in square aspect to each other, we are challenged to integrate our analytical (Virgo) understanding of the world with our mystical, intuitive side (Pisces). More and more we see that miracles happen (Pisces) even when our rational thoughts (Virgo) say “no way.” Use this Full Moon in Virgo to make practical plans to implement your dreams and daydreams (Pisces).

Saturn Enters Pisces. Saturn entering Pisces on March 7 is a major shift. Saturn has been in Aquarius since March 22, 2020 and will remain in Pisces until February 8, 2026 (except for a brief sojourn into Aries). Saturn in Pisces adds structure to your artistic endeavors and helps you achieve your dreams. Saturn in Pisces won’t always feel good, since Saturn rules structure, limitation and responsibility and Pisces is unstructured. However, Saturn rewards those who do the hard work necessary to achieve their dreams.


March 11:  Venus Sextile Mars at 23 Degrees Aries/Gemini. Mercury Sextile Uranus at 15 Degrees Pisces/Taurus. Both Venus sextile Mars and Mercury sextile Uranus are helpful aspects. Mercury sextile Mars puts action and “oomph” behind your desires, while Mercury sextile Uranus brings an open and inventive mind.


March 14: Mars Square Neptune at 25 Degrees Gemini/Pisces. Mars square Neptune amplifies your desire to escape. Mars wants action and Neptune just wants to dream. These conflicting energies can make you feel extra tired or weary. Take some quiet time, if possible, and don’t push yourself.


March 15-16: Sun and Mercury Conjunct Neptune at 25 Degrees Pisces. Sun Square Mars at 25 Degrees Pisces/Gemini. Venus Square Pluto at 29 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. Mercury Square Mars at 25 Degrees Pisces/Gemini. These transits take us through all kinds of energy. Sun conjunct Neptune and Mercury conjunct Neptune bring intuition, connection with spirit and manifestation through belief and thought.

Venus square Pluto indicates a need to examine your close relationships and to make changes where needed. Tread carefully around touchy relationship matters.

Mercury square Mars can bring arguments and conflicts due to impulsive reactions and aggressive talk. Use Mercury conjunct Neptune to tone things down and to lessen an inner feeling of irritation and impatience.


March 16: Venus Enters Taurus. Venus is strong in her home sign of Taurus. Take advantage of Venus in Taurus by beautifying your surroundings, becoming active in environmental causes and by finding ways to increase your financial security.


March 17-18: Sun Conjunct Mercury at 27 Degrees Pisces. Sun and Mercury Sextile Pluto at 29 Degrees Pisces/Capricorn. The Sun and Mercury sextile Pluto is advantageous for making personal changes that you have been putting off, particularly deep, psychological changes. The Sun activates your energy, while Mercury brings knowledge. Pluto helps you solve puzzles and to understand the deep, psychological underpinnings of any addictions or self-undoing that have been limiting you.


Mercury enters Aries on March 18. Mercury in Aries activates your mind and you crave action and mental activity. Be assertive, not aggressive.


March 20: Sun Enters Aries at the Spring Equinox. 

March 21: New Moon at 0 Degrees 49’ Aries. 

The Sun in Aries begins the astrological new year at the Spring Equinox. Though I like the idea of the New Year being celebrated on January 1, I have found the astrological new year to be much more potent. That is especially true this year when the Sun is joined by the New Moon in Aries on the 21st. The New Moon in Aries is superb for beginning new projects, for taking action and for finishing those projects that have been shoved aside. It’s time to clear the slate for a new year’s worth of accomplishment!

March 23: Pluto Enters Aquarius. Pluto in Aquarius is a major shift. Since Pluto moves so slow, Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since January 26, 2008. It will be in Aquarius until June 11, 2023. It retrogrades back into Capricorn until January 21, 2024, when it will re-enter Aquarius. It will stay in Aquarius until January 2044. You probably won’t notice much on a day-to-day basis from Pluto in Aquarius, but it is absolutely setting up a new way of thinking and being. Since Pluto rules the masses, we will see a big shift in consciousness and social mores during its long transit of Aquarius.

I am quite optimistic that Pluto in Aquarius will bring new ways of thinking about humanitarian causes, brotherhood and sisterhood, community and a keener realization of the importance of accepting everyone. Aquarius, after all, is the sign that rules tribes and groups. I expect there to be technological advances way beyond our current understanding. Given the nature of Pluto, this is both exciting and scary. The Aquarian themes of liberation and free-thinking can incite revolutions. Pluto in Aquarius will bring massive changes, both beneficial and otherwise. But, for sure, nothing will be the same by 2044.


March 25: Mars Enters Cancer. Mars in Cancer is about family and about protecting and fighting for (Mars) your family (Cancer), whether it is your family of origin or your family by connection. You may be feeling more emotional while Mars is in Cancer from March 25 through May 19, 2023. Mars transiting Cancer is a good time to get in touch with your feelings from the past. Make those emotional changes that put you in touch with who you are today – not who you were in the past.


March 30:  Mars Trine Saturn at 2 Degrees Cancer/Pisces. Venus Conjunct Uranus at 16 Degrees Taurus. There are two very different transits taking place now. Venus conjunct Uranus brings the desire for excitement, stimulation and escape from your mundane, everyday life. Unexpected, unusual people or events may enter your life. Do not take chances with your money or investments at this time.

Mars trine Saturn can bring delays and frustration, This transit requires discipline and endurance – not control. Accomplish what you can and recheck your plans. The delay is often advantageous in the long run.

Astrology Transits February 2023 – Innovative Compassion

You are a piece of the puzzle of someone else’s life. You may never know where you fit, but others will fill the holes in their lives with pieces of you. —Bonnie Arbon

Venus, the planet of love, entered Pisces the sign of compassion, intuition, magic and oneness, on January 27, where it will stay until February 20. Venus in Pisces implores us to connect with all of life and to love ourselves and others unconditionally. More than any other aspect, Venus in Pisces truly does allow us to “fill the holes in” other’s lives through our compassion.


Uranus, the unpredictable planet of sudden surprises, awakening and bright ideas, turned direct on January 24 in the sign of Taurus. Uranus moving direct in Taurus is about shedding everything that is holding you back. This could be mind-clutter, physical clutter or an over abundance of fear.


There are no planets retrograde from January 23 until April 20, when Mercury once again enters its retrograde movement. Everything is waking up and moving forward at a rapid pace. Use this time to trust yourself and to move confidently toward your goals. The planets all through 2023 are inviting us to heal the least-loved parts of ourselves. All through 2023 think “trust” and not “fear.” In addition, with the Sun in Aquarius until February 19, the emphasis is on innovation, creative breakthroughs and connection to all of God’s creation.  Enjoy this promising, fast-moving and challenging month.


February 1: Sun Sextile Chiron at 12 Degrees Aquarius/Aries. Take a minute to acknowledge any past hurts that may be holding you back when the Sun is sextile Chiron. The Sun in Aquarius is about expressing your individuality, while Chiron in Aries is about taking action. Ask yourself: What have I been afraid to express about my true self?


February 3: Sun Square Uranus at 15 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. Sun square Uranus can often cause sudden upsets and/or accidents. Pay attention to what you are doing and absolutely do not text while you drive.


February 4: Venus Square Mars at 11 Degrees Pisces/Gemini. This is not the best time to work out relationship issues. Venus square Mars can bring anger, impulsive actions and aggression, particularly around those you care the most about. Instead, engage in sports, exercise, dance or action of some kind. The more you work off the tensions through moving your body the better.


February 5:  Full Moon at 16 Degrees Leo. It’s lights, action, camera and play time when the Full Moon is in Leo. We aren’t in the mood to take life seriously under a Leo Full Moon. The Leo Full Moon is a heart-centered Moon that fosters creative self-expression, pleasure and romance.

The Sun in Aquarius is focused on friendships, groups and breakthroughs of all kinds. Have fun, but don’t let your ego needs overshadow your connection to others in your life. This Full Moon is square Uranus, which can bring unexpected epiphanies and revelations, but also some rebellious, strange, or startling energy. Enjoy yourself, but stay grounded.


February 6: Mercury Sextile Neptune at 23 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces 

February 8: Venus Sextile Uranus at 15 Degrees Pisces/Taurus.  When fast-moving Mercury is sextile Neptune, let your intuition roam, but avoid making long-term, serious decisions. Venus sextile Uranus brings the desire for excitement and you may crave a break in your daily routine. Both transits are excellent for meeting new people, though connections made now may not be long lasting.


February 9: Mercury Conjunct Pluto Sesquiquadrates Mars at 28 Degrees Capricorn 12 Degrees Gemini. The intensity level (Pluto) is through the roof under today’s aspects. Be especially careful in your communication with others (Mercury and Gemini) under Pluto’s intensity and Mars’ potential for anger and aggression. Use Mercury conjunct Pluto to do research, investigative work and to ferret out hidden answers.


February 11: Mercury Enters Aquarius. Air-sign Mercury in Aquarius opens up your mind and amplifies your inventive talents. Keep a small tablet handy so you can jot down important insights that come to you while Mercury is in Aquarius until March 3rd.


February 14:  Mars at 13 Degrees Gemini sesquiquadrate Pluto at 19 Degrees Capricorn. Mars sesquiquadrate Pluto Is one of those irritating aspects that might have you feeling on edge and/or agitated. Be especially careful when driving or operating machinery. You might want to postpone your romantic Valentine dinner until tomorrow, when the energy will be excellent for romance.


February 15: Venus Conjunct Neptune at 24 Degrees Pisces. Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces is not an action day, but rather a day to let your intuition and imagination roam and to let your creative juices flow. This is not the best time to enter into a new romantic relationship because your perceptions are foggy and unrealistic. Instead, simply enjoy today. Your focus is much sharper and realistic tomorrow when the Sun is conjunct Saturn in Aquarius.


February 16: Sun Conjunct Saturn at 27 Degrees Aquarius. Today, when the Sun is conjunct Saturn, is a serious day that is one of the best for organizing, planning and completing tasks that you have been putting off. However, you may be feeling a little tired, mildly depressed or wanting to be by yourself. Honor those feelings by only concentrating on small tasks that will make a big difference in the long run. Let your mind roam freely about future possibilities. The Sun and Saturn in Aquarius will help you find new and innovative ways of doing things.


February 17: Mercury Sextile Jupiter at 9 Degrees Aquarius/Aries. Mercury sextile Jupiter lasts only a short time, but it is superb for contemplating the big picture of your life. Mercury sextile Jupiter fires up your intellectual processes with a touch of optimism. Ask yourself: “What do I really want and what are the steps I need to take to get it.” Then let yourself believe that you really can achieve what you want.


February 19:  Sun Enters Pisces. Moon Enters Pisces and Venus Sextile Pluto at 29 Degrees Aries/Capricorn. Both the Sun and the Moon enter Pisces today bringing a more emotional outlook and a spike in your intuition. Venus sextile Pluto intensifies your emotions. Strangers you meet now have the potential to change your life in some way.


February 20: New Moon at 1 Degree Pisces. Venus Enters Aries. Mercury Square Uranus at 15 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. The preceding aspects have been mostly air and fire oriented. The New Moon in Pisces brings a more emotional element into play. Use your imagination and intuition to tune into your desires and dreams. Then use your emotions to visualize yourself receiving what you desire. Magic can happen under a Pisces New Moon.

February 22: Mercury Trine Mars at 16 Degrees Aquarius/Gemini. Mercury trine Mars relates to fast talking, fast driving, and a bold and confidant demeanor. Mercury stimulates your thinking while Mars brings a shot of energy and confidence. Be careful here, as Mercury trine Mars can make you more confrontive as you really, really want to get others to understand your views.

February 1:      Moon in Cancer

Atrology Transits January 2023 – Ready for Change



Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed. — Terence McKenna



It seems that many people went through most of year 2022 holding their breath, or worse, in depression, doubt and fear. Though year 2023 certainly has its challenges, the energy is dramatically changing. Major planetary shifts in the next several months include:

  • Neptune turned direct in Pisces on December 3, 2022 – your spiritual and creative expression is strong. 
  • Mars retrograde ends on January 12, 2023, at 8 degrees Gemini – aggressive thoughts and speech, but also active, engaged communication.
  • Uranus turns direct on January 22, 2023, at 14° Taurus – big shift in what we hold dear and letting go of outworn security needs.
  • Saturn moves from Aquarius into Pisces on March 7, 2023 – responsibility combined with wonder, intuition and spirituality.
  • Pluto moves from Capricorn into Aquarius on March 23, 2023 – a slow-moving, but major, shift in collective thought.
  • Jupiter enters Taurus on May 17, 2023 – change in our values and thinking positively about money and security.

With the slower-moving planets involved, we can be sure that there will be a major shift, both individually and collectively, in perspective over time. 


December 30, 2022: Mercury turned Retrograde at 24 Degrees Capricorn. Mercury will be in retrograde motion until January 17, when it will station direct at 8 degrees Capricorn. 


January 2: Mercury Sextile Neptune at 22 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces. Venus Enters Aquarius. Retrograde Mercury in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces has the effect of slowing down your thoughts and outside communications so you can tune into your inner intuitive insights. If possible, take time to reflect on your inner dreams.


January 4: Venus Sextile Jupiter at 1 Degree Aquarius/Aries. Venus sextile Jupiter is one of those rare aspects that make you feel lucky, benevolent and optimistic. Though short-lived, it is excellent for love relationships and social connections of all kinds.


January 5: Sun Trine Uranus at 15 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus. Use the energizing Sun trine Uranus aspect to start new, exciting, mind-expanding studies. Keep track of any sudden insights that you have now. They can be amazingly helpful in solving seemingly unsolvable problems.


January 6-7:  Full Moon at 16 Degrees Cancer. Sun Conjunct Retrograde Mercury at 16 Degrees Capricorn. The Cancer Full Moon promises to be an emotional time. The Moon is very strong when it is full in its own sign of Cancer. Family matters and all issues related to caretaking and nurturing are featured now. Spend some time tuning into your emotions and needs. Areas to examine:

  • How do you nurture others? How do you nurture yourself?
  • How do you wish others would nurture you? 
  • What is the difference between nurturing and smothering?
  • What kind of people, places and objects make you feel cared for?
  • How will you bring about the desired emotional changes? 

January 8-9: Retrograde Mercury Trine Uranus at 15 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus.
Venus Trine Mars 15 8 Degrees Aquarius/Gemini. Use retrograde Mercury trine Uranus to go back over and fine tune any ideas that came to you under Sun trine Uranus on January 5. Mercury is especially strong when retrograde. Use it to find and correct flaws in your ideas and/or thinking. Pay especial attention to sudden insights.

Venus trine Mars is excellent for solving touchy relationship issues. Mars helps you assert yourself, while Venus softens your tone. Venus trine Mars is also excellent for money matters and for attracting or furthering love relationships. The main caution is to curb impulsive, impatient actions.


January 11-12:  Retrograde Mercury Square Chiron at 12 Degrees Capricorn/Aries. Venus Sextile Chiron at 12 Degrees/Aquarius/Aries. Retrograde Mercury square Chiron means that it is time to relook at and heal those life experiences that wounded you in some way. Use Venus sextile Chiron to send healing love to yourself and to those who wronged you. Something to try: 1) visualize a pink cloud around yourself, 2) send that pink cloud to the person who has hurt you and finally 3) release the pink cloud to the universe with love.


January 13-14: Venus Sextile Neptune at 12 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces. Venus Square Uranus at 14 Degrees Aquarius/Taurus. Venus continues to offer love and healing when it sextiles Neptune. If possible, connect with nature and beautiful surroundings. A romantic night out with your special someone would also be wonderful when Venus is sextile Neptune.

Venus square Uranus can make you feel flirtier, so be careful who you flirt with. It may also leave you feeling a little unsettled, bored, impulsive and impatient. Use some estraint. Instead, use Venus square Uranus to look at where you need to make changes to freshen things up in your life.


January 18: Sun Conjunct Pluto at 28 Degrees Capricorn. Sun conjunct Pluto is an intense and, most likely, upsetting aspect. Our ego needs (Sun) are strengthened and intensified (Pluto). Because everyone is being affected by this aspect, it is best not to provoke others and to stay away from dangerous or challenging situations and places.


January 19-20:  Mercury Turns Direct at 8 Degrees Capricorn. Sun Enters Aquarius on January 29. The Sun moving into Aquarius begins the profound shift we will all feel when Pluto begins its long journey in Aquarius in the next several years. As Mercury turns direct and moves forward in Capricorn it will help you make grounded, stable plans. Use the Aquarian Sun to use technology and/or to implement new ideas.


January 21: New Moon at 1 Degree Aquarius. The New Moon in Aquarius conjunct Pluto in Capricorn practically shouts to you to examine where you have been and where you want to go. Pluto in Capricorn is about tradition, responsibility and “the way things have always been.”  The New Moon in Aquarius is about new ideas and the future. This Aquarius New Moon sets that energy in motion. If you have felt sluggish, stymied and sidelined, use this New Moon to imagine and embody new insights and possibilities.



January 22: Venus Conjunct Saturn at 24 Degrees Aquarius. Venus conjunct Saturn is excellent for making a budget and financial plan for the new year. Venus rules money and your values, while Saturn gives you a sense of restraint and responsibility. The sign of Aquarius helps you see and be open to new possibilities around making, saving and investing money.

You may not feel as warm and affectionate as usual when Venus is conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. However, new relationships begun now can be long-lived and down to earth.


January 24: Sun Sextile Jupiter at 4 Degrees Aquarius/Aries. Sun sextile Jupiter is a very positive, active aspect, especially when it falls in Aquarius/Aries. Think big (Jupiter), pay attention to insights (Aquarius) and let yourself shine (Sun). This aspect is especially beneficial for those with the Sun and/or ascendant in Aquarius or Aries. For everyone else, look to the natal houses where Aquarius and Aries are located to see where to put your energy for positive results.


January 26: Venus Enters Pisces. Venus will be in Pisces until February 19. Venus in Pisces is outstanding for those of you in creative or artistic endeavors. It also adds a dreamy, romantic vibe to your love relationships. 


January 29: Sun Trine Mars at 9 Degrees Aquarius/Gemini. Mercury Trine Uranus at 14 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus. The Sun trine Mars and Mercury trine Uranus bring an active mind and a burst of physical energy. Use this dynamic aspect to finish old projects. The negative of Sun trine Mars is that you may be feeling more impatient, aggressive and/or hostile than normal. The more you divert the Mars energy into positive action the better.

Astrology Transits December 2022 – Seeking Knowledge

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. ― Albert Einstein


The sign of Sagittarius and its ruling planet Jupiter are in focus with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all transiting Sagittarius as December begins. Both Sagittarius and Jupiter relate to wisdom, higher mind activities and anything that expands the mind, such as travel or studies. In the meantime, Neptune and Jupiter are transiting Pisces. Both Neptune and Pisces relate to intuition, imagination and everything known and perceived without the use of the five senses.


In addition, Sagittarius brings an aura of lightheartedness that is sorely needed and appreciated after the deep, Scorpio energy that we experienced last month. I love how the energy is continually changing, giving us a new perspective and a new learning environment each month. Sometimes our earth-centered classes are filled with serious, life changing curriculum (Scorpio transits) and other months the curriculum is more light hearted and enjoyable (Sagittarius transits). Enjoy the robust December Jupiter/Sagittarius energy!


December 1:  

Venus Opposition Mars at 19 Degrees Sagittarius/Gemini. Creative and sexual energy will be high under the Venus opposition Mars transit. 

Mercury Square Neptune at 22 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Words may be confusing and/or deceptive when Mercury is square Neptune.

Venus Sextile Saturn at 19 Degrees Sagittarius/Aquarius. Venus sextile Saturn brings everything down to earth. It helps you avoid the potential pitfalls of Venus opposition Mars and Mercury square Neptune.


December 4:  Sun Trine Chiron at 12 Degrees Sagittarius/Aries. 

Venus Square Neptune at 22 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Sun trine Chiron assists in learning (Sun in Sagittarius) how to heal (Chiron) yourself through knowledge. Venus square Neptune assists in healing through unconventional channels or methods. Pay attention to your intuition now.


December 6: Mercury Square Jupiter at 29 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Mercury Enters Capricorn. Mercury square Jupiter helps you see the big picture and gives you a sense of optimism regarding your plans and goals. The downside is that it can make you a little lax and careless in taking care of the details and tying up loose ends. You might want to wait until later in the day, or tomorrow, to put your plans in motion. When Mercury enters Capricorn the flightiness of Mercury square Jupiter will be tempered by the sober Capricorn energy.


December 7:  Full Moon at 16 Degrees Gemini. Sun in Sagittarius Quincunx Uranus at 15 Degrees Sagittarius/Taurus. Change time! The Full Moon in Gemini with the Sagittarius Sun quincunx Uranus is a dual confirmation that it is time for a change. This Gemini Full Moon sets the tone for year 2023. Year 2023 has several planets changing signs and is all about teetering on the rim of big change. I will be giving a talk at the Spiritual Center on January 8, 2023, about the big changes in store for us in year 2022.


The Gemini Full Moon is a light hearted moon. The Moon conjunct Mars wants action and intellectual stimulation. Enjoy lively conversations and intellectual exploration (Sun in Sagittarius) under this full moon.


December 8: Sun Opposition Mars at 16 Degrees Sagittarius/Gemini. Mind your own business and don’t confront others during this challenging, feisty transit. You, and everyone around you, may be feeling extra aggressive and angry. The need to assert yourself is strong. You would be wise to curb that impulse as it can only lead to trouble. This is especially important if you have planets or points in mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).

December 9: Venus Square Jupiter at 29 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Venus Enters Capricorn. The somewhat challenging energy continues when Venus is Square Jupiter. Your self-control and impulse control are not fully operating at this time. Be careful when shopping as you could overspend on unneeded, impulse purchases. On a positive note, Venus square Jupiter is good for socializing, so long as you don’t give off an arrogant vibe (Jupiter).


December 12: Sun Sextile Saturn at 20 Degrees Sagittarius/Aquarius. Sun sextile Saturn is superb for getting things done. Saturn gives you self-discipline and the will to work hard to complete your tasks. This would be an excellent time to clean out the junk drawer or to tackle work-related tasks that require concentration and diligence.


December 14: Sun Square Neptune at 22 Degrees Sagittarius/Pisces. Try to take things easy and don’t push yourself when the Sun is square Neptune. Your energy may be low and things may not be what they seem. 


December 17:  Mercury Trine Uranus at 15 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus. Enjoy this short-lived (5 days approximately) transit while you can. Though Mercury trine Uranus only lasts a short time, it is excellent for problem solving using new, unexpected and even startling ideas. The well-known depiction of a light bulb over the head perfectly fits Mercury trine Uranus.


December 18: Mars Sesquiquadrate Pluto at 12 Degrees Gemini/Capricorn. Your ambition soars when Mars aspects Pluto. However, be very careful not to foster conflict with others. You could find yourself on the losing end of any such conflict.


December 19: Venus Square Chiron at 12 Degrees Capricorn/Aries. Venus Quincunx Mars at 12 Degrees Capricorn/Gemini. Mars Sextile Chiron at 12 Degrees Gemini/Aries. Venus square Chiron can unearth hurtful emotions around your closest relationships. However, Mars sextile Chiron offers a solution. Taking action (Mars) by talking through any such disagreements (Gemini) can go a long way towards solving any areas of disagreement. 


December 20: Jupiter Enters Aries. Let the action begin! Jupiter, the planet of abundance, optimism, and everything big, and even over-the-top, performs well in fiery Aries. Use your renewed sense of optimism to move your projects forward. This is especially true for the fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). 


December 21: Sun Enters Capricorn. Sun Square Jupiter at 0 Degrees Capricorn/Aries. The winter solstice begins when the Sun enters Capricorn. It then forms a square to Jupiter in Aries. Though squares are typically thought of as challenges, I rather like this configuration. Capricorn is known to bring steady progress, while Jupiter in Aries fires everything up and gets things moving. Use this energy to re-activate your goals and projects as both stable Capricorn and optimistic Jupiter will help you succeed.


December 23: New Moon at 1 Degree Capricorn Sesquiquadrate Uranus. The Capricorn New Moon is part of a rolling stellium consisting of five planets in Capricorn. Use this auspicious time to carefully look at your goals and to revise your plans where needed. Capricorn is a business sign. Planets transiting Capricorn are especially helpful in the areas of business or commerce, though Capricorn planets can be helpful for all projects and endeavors. The Capricorn New Moon sesquiquadrate Uranus could bring disruptions, but Moon Uranus transits can also bring brilliant insights, especially with Venus and Mercury trine Uranus.

December 24, Christmas Eve: The Moon in Capricorn is custom made for family and family traditions. On Christmas Day the Moon in Aquarius has you feeling a little restless and ready to tackle new horizons – out with the old and in with the new. 

December 28: Venus Sextile Neptune at 23 Degrees Capricorn/Pisces. Pull back from too much activity when Venus is sextile Neptune. Venus sextile Neptune brings a peaceful respite from more dynamic energy. The main danger is that you can be easily deceived. This is not the best time to buy, sell or borrow or to enter into a new romantic relationship.


December 29: Mercury Turns Retrograde at 24 Degrees Capricorn until January 17, when it turns stationary direct at 8 degrees Capricorn. Its time to recheck all business communication. 


December 30: Sun Quincunx Mars at 9 Degrees Capricorn/Gemini. When the Sun is Quincunx Mars, something has to give and/or an adjustment has to be made. Mars in Gemini wants immediate action around a communication snafu, while the Sun in Capricorn cautions you to take your time when making adjustments. Because Mercury is now retrograde, I would advise you to look at the history of the matter in question before you make a reasoned (Sun in Capricorn) adjustment.


December 31: Sun Trine the North Node at 10 Degrees Capricorn/Taurus and Sun Sextile South Node at 10 Degrees Capricorn/Scorpio. The Sun Trine the North Node and Sun sextile South Node on the last day of the year speaks to letting go of the past (South Node) and embracing the new (North Node). It is about becoming your true and authentic self (Sun trine North Node). As you make your New Year’s resolutions, spend some time contemplating why you are here and how you can fulfill your life purpose.
