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.
