Here we go, last one of the year... seasonal greetings to you and yours :)
21st March – 20th April
Beginning of December includes a change of focus and new directions, especially linking to friendships, groups and gatherings (from the 4th). Then momentum and intensity builds for another major meeting between two big impact planets, Pluto and Uranus on the 15th. Since 2012 they have symbolised total transformation of self and circumstances, and this is the latest chapter; easy to see perhaps around new moon and solstice on the 21st when the most public side of your chart (career, status, reputation, etc) is alight with activity. Duty and obligation rubs up the rule-breaker in you the wrong way this month, but don’t get too dramatic about it.
21st April – 21st May
Your ruler Venus is right at the centre of a major planet pattern this month, indicating this is a pivotal month of getting up close and personal with all changes and challenges. In other words, staying present (rather than moving mentally or literally into escapism mode) will move you through changes and challenges automatically so just showing up and doing your best with what presents itself is enough for positive transformation to occur, regardless of how intensely unknown or unpredictable things feel to be. Consider the new moon and solstice on the 21st to be a powerful point in time, symbolising new paths and perspectives unfolding now to live fully and learn by.
22nd May – 21st June
The annual full moon in your sign on the 6th reveals situations coming to a head, especially linking to relationships, contracts and agreements. Reconnection with the past is important here somehow too. Midmonth there’s another meeting between two powerful planets (Uranus and Pluto), symbolising deep and complete inner transformation. If you look back to 2012 and notice how profoundly different you are now to then, you get the idea. You’re experiencing levels of trust in yourself (and therefore in circumstances) that were inaccessible before 2012, and events around the new moon and solstice on the 21st are all about that. It’s about the freedom of commitment, and other paradoxes.
22nd June – 22nd July
Since summer 2012 two powerful planets (Uranus and Pluto) have periodically linked up in slow-moving and steady formation, indicating complete and utter transformation of your most important relationships, important contracts and agreements, as well as ambitions and long-term plans. Midmonth December marks another link-up; suggesting depth, intensity and uncertainty in these areas of your life. Think of it as an awakening, where you’re shaken from a sound sleep into the harsh light of day; not nice at first perhaps, but fine once you’re up and running. Events around the new moon and solstice on the 21st show the adjustments made and a new chapter beginning.
23rd July – 23rd August
Limits, restrictions and responsibilities linked to your home and family matters look likely to lift or feel easier from the 23rd. At the same time you are approaching fun, creativity, entertainment and matters of the heart much more seriously. Midmonth there’s another super-charged planet meeting between heavyweights Pluto and Uranus, which since 2012 have indicated a profound shaping and reshaping of day to day schedules, employment, and health and fitness. Events this month and in particular around new moon and solstice time on the 21st are about the latest developments and progress, and communication seems particularly relevant in all this somehow.
24th August – 22nd September
First half of the month is about finding a balance or harmony between work and home life, and the full moon on the 6th indicates you’re focusing more on home and family matters, as career and ambitions had your full attention recently. Midmonth has a message about significant transformation in circumstances: since 2012 some powerful planet patterns have periodically been active in your chart, suggesting deep and long-lasting changes, and mid-December hosts the latest big planet activity. Notice events around new moon and solstice time on the 21st for progress and developments in this, and also to make sense of any changes so far (especially linked to resources and income).
23rd September – 23rd October
First week focuses on communication and travel. Friendships grow and hopes and dreams can manifest under the full moon on the 6th. This is also the month to concentrate on the healing not the hurt. Your ruler Venus moves to your home and family chart sector from the 10th, in preparation for some intense focus in this area of your life. On the 15th a very powerful meeting of planets indicates another chapter of change and make-over is underway; since 2012 there’s been total transformation at times, in key relationships, contracts and agreements linked to home and family matters. Events around new moon and solstice time on the 21st will reveal much more on this.
24th October – 22nd November
Important month for Scorpio. All the big planet movement (and it’s big) is relevant to you, meaning there’s deep and profound movement in key situations, especially stuck situations, relating to communication, neighbourhood, siblings, employment, health and fitness. Looking back to 2012 when this particular planet pattern began, you can see how deep and profound change and transformation (often unexpected) has impacted those areas of your life. The new moon and solstice on the 21st symbolises open doors and new beginnings linked to all this, and from the 23rd there’s a sigh of relief and freedom, when restrictive and sensible Saturn leaves your sign after two years.
23rd November – 21st December
This is an intense month of activity and revelation, starting with a relationship-themed full moon on the 6th, highlighting how partners are your mood mirror, reflecting back your sense of fulfilment, or lack of it. Midmonth there’s powerful attention aimed at income and resources, linking to fun, entertainment and creative endeavour. This is has been ongoing for a couple of years now; it’s all about a transformation of circumstances linking to a profound, personal renewal or rebirth (and new moon and solstice on the 21st is important here too). Saturn, planet of maturity and responsibility moves into your sign from the 23rd, encouraging you to take yourself more seriously when it matters.
22nd December – 20th January
So much is building up or coming to a head this month; so much that has been rumbling for quite a while now is becoming too strong to ignore. First half of the month you feel reflective and quiet, but midmonth onward you really come into your own, especially when it comes to home and family matters. The sun moves into your sign under an unusually powerful new moon of new beginnings on the 21st, then your ruling planet Saturn moves into a new sector of your chart for the foreseeable, which is about lifting restrictions, responsibilities or obstacles linked to friendships, groups and gatherings.
21st January – 18th February
Great start to the month with a sweet harmony of planets, and action planet Mars moving into your sign from the 4th. It means you’ve lots of motivation and you’re feeling good while you do it, and that’s especially true when comes to communication (a big theme for December). Two powerful planets meet on the 15th, symbolising another momentous chapter in the personal transformation you’ve been going through since 2012. The changes were about your voice and the power of self-expression, so notice this month, and especially around new moon and solstice time on the 21st, that events might seem out of your hands, yet are still building confidence in communication.
19th February – 20th March
It’s a powerful month for Pisces. First half of December is focused on the many demands on your time and energy, which you mostly enjoy, but sometimes feel drained or disillusioned about. Then as the month goes on, and especially around new moon and solstice time on the 21st, your focus is very much concentrated on situations involving friendship, groups and gatherings, and especially involving your hopes and dreams for the future. Things are changing profoundly, sometimes unexpectedly in those areas, and it reflects profound change in you too. In other words, it’s a great time to start a new year.
