December is here and starts off with Neptune stationing direct on December 1st.

Neptune creates unconditional love. The higher octave of Venus. It has been in retrograde motion in the sign of Pisces since June 25, 2021.

Difficult to diagnose any health issue when Neptune is retrograde. It’s great for spiritual practices like deep meditation but not so good for motivation. We have seen a lack of motivation to get back to work. I heard they need to hire 80,000 truck drivers to deliver goods that are sitting on ships.

With Neptune turning direct to start off December, the fogginess of Neptune will begin to clear out until it reaches its stationary retrograde degree which is 23 degrees. This will be around the middle of March 2022.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces, look to the houses the planets are in and this is the areas of your life where dreams can come true. Even the addictive tendencies of Pisces will want to let go of those things in life that hold them back.

This is because Neptune will start to move ahead by the end of December when Jupiter, the classical ruler of Pisces, moves into the sign of Pisces for most of 2022.

Jupiter will be hovering around Neptune in conjunction in April of 2022 so get your wish list together for 2022 Pisces. Reach for the stars.

The new Moon total solar eclipse on December 4th will be in the sign of Sagittarius at 12 degrees at (2:43AM EST) continuing a Sagittarius energy that has been activated by eclipses along with Gemini over the last year and half.

Sagittarius is getting its last wind over the next 6 months. International travel, acquiring a college degree, learning a new language, increase in religious faith, acquiring a spiritual teacher/Guru and shooting for higher states of awareness.

College students may find they are head over heals in deadlines with homework before the holiday season starts.

The new Moon total solar eclipse has Mercury close, so the thoughts (Mercury) and all forms of communications are highly active. Not always clear as Neptune squares Mercury, but the creative energies of Sagittarius are intense.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or any planets in Sagittarius, it is important for you to watch your thoughts a couple of days before, on the day, and a couple of days after this total solar eclipse.

Darkness and emptiness are there. Plant good seeds. Affirmations that planet a seed of inspiration (Sagittarius). Get plenty of rest at this time.

The affirmation could be, “MY THOUGHTS OF LIGHT ARE FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD TO MYSELF AND EVERYONE AROUND ME.”

The Sun and Moon inconjunct Uranus in Taurus and this shows the signs of Sagittarius and Taurus at odds with their spending habits. Saturn is also square to Uranus in Taurus indicating more conservative discipline is needed in our financial world.

Look for tensions to start regarding the infrastructure bill being met with conservative resistance from both the left and right in the Senate.

However, the grand trine in water signs Mars, Neptune and the MC will move forward with more ease than tension.

Mars sextile to Pluto also shows a more physical movement towards financial balance if you are born under the sign of Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces, and Cancer. A suitable time for these signs to apply of a new job, advance to a new position with better pay or ask for a raise at your present position.

Part of Fortune is exactly on top of this total new Moon eclipse chart's rising sign of Libra at 17 degrees.


This is a fortunate position if you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Libra. Relationships may have their issues but the part of fortune irons out the difficulties and gives good karma to intervene at a time when you think your relationships are falling apart.

This applies to the signs of Libra, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Cancer.

Mercury moves into the sign of Capricorn on December 13th, the same day Mars moved into Sagittarius. Mercury will remain in Capricorn till January 2, 2022.

The sign of Capricorn, which rules big government, will be busy thinking (Mercury) about how money is spent, and any bills being passed before the Christmas Holiday will go through lots of talk from the 13th till the 23rd.

Tension continues after the 13th and swells to a waxing full Moon in Gemini on December 18th at 27 degrees (11:36PM). Several squares haunt this full Moon with tensions that have been building all year long.

The sign of Gemini can be emotionally restless and hard for those born under the sign of the twins to make sense of anything with a full Moon. Pluto is only one degree away from Venus in Capricorn inconjunct the full Moon. Relationship troubles for the signs of Gemini and Capricorn. Steady as she goes, or the ship will sink. LOL.

Neptune conjunct part of fortune in this full Moon chart means it’s getting Pisces ready for lots of good luck as Jupiter moves into Pisces on December 29th.

This could also be the time, around the full Moon, that international troubles are reported with grand squares and T-squares from the mutable signs as Gemini opposes Sagittarius both square to Virgo and Pisces.

Sagittarius is about international relationships. So many political fall outs, immigration problems, Russia invading Ukraine, China wanting the micro-chip factory in Taiwan and who knows what else, Haitians wanting a new home, Nicaragua turned communist and pretending to be democratic and let’s not forget that America is having a nervous breakdown with violence erupting anywhere and everywhere.


This combination of aspects on the full Moon shows the virus could cause more issues or expand other countires with U.S.A worried. Pluto will remain in conjunction with progessed South Node till December 11, 2021. 

I don’t mean to sound negative, but Dr. Fauci needs to be replaced by holistic healthcare practitioners who know how to teach people to DE-STRESS. Calm things down. Allow some peace in our lives that we don’t get from a quick fix vaccine but by our own efforts to take care of ourselves. Need I say more.

Venus stations retrograde in Capricorn on December 19, 2021, at 5:36AM EST at 26 degrees and will remain in Capricorn till March 6, 2022. An exceptionally long time because Venus started to turn inward at later degrees.

Capricorns are being tested during this time as to what they really enjoy doing. Do they really want to work long hours? Do they really want to take on so much responsibility in life? They come to terms with their need to show love through working, but they need to find time for themselves and their loved ones if they want to have less stress and strain in life.

The Sun moves into Capricorn on December 21st at 10:59AM EST starting the Winter Solstice. Happy birthday to Capricorn. The days start to get brighter and brighter from here as the shortest day of the year with the least amount of sunlight is the Winter Solstice Day.

Merry Christmas to everyone and all the religions who celebrate their own faiths during this time.

Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion enters the sign of Pisces December 29, 2021, as mentioned earlier. Best wishes for abundance, perfect health, and love for those who have Sun, Moon, rising or other planets in Pisces. The last time Jupiter was in Pisces was 12 years ago.
