The Astrology of December 2022 is marked by an important emphasis on the archetype of Capricorn, bringing the spotlight on our path to self-mastery, as well as by an interesting Full Moon in Gemini, exactly conjunct retrograde Mars. The prominence of Cardinal energy reflects a desire to take action and begin new endeavors, however, some frustration, insecurity, and reassessments regarding the direction to take will be present too, as Mars is still retrograde. Throughout the last part of the month, Jupiter entering Aries again will significantly increase the momentum and the desire to make things happen, move forward, and have new experiences. Nonetheless, the energetic boost coming from Jupiter in Aries will likely be noticed more clearly after Mars stations direct in January.

Let’s see in more detail what awaits us during December 2022.

December 2022 Astrology: Neptune stations direct in Pisces

Dec 3, 2022, 7:15 PM ET


As the new month begins, Neptune stations direct in Pisces after being retrograde since June 28. This shift is an opportunity for us to begin to integrate the intuitive insights and perceptions we got during the retrograde phase, and move forward with deeper awareness. As the fog clears and illusions are uncovered, confusion subsides and Truth emerges: we are ready to face it. At this time, we are being invited to choose to align our actions and decisions with what we begin to know and see with clarity. Read full article here.


Mercury enters Capricorn

Dec 6, 2022, 5:08 PM ET


Mercury leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn, facilitating a shift in our thinking patterns, communication habits, perceptions of reality, and learning styles. The Messenger’s journey through the sign of the Sea Goat invites us to explore a practical mindset and facilitates a pragmatic approach to problem-solving and daily planning. This transit supports our capacity to be mentally structured and organized and facilitates a mature and grounded approach to all communication dynamics. Read full article here.


Full Moon in Gemini

Dec 7, 2022, 11:07 PM ET


The Full Moon in Gemini takes place while the Moon is exactly conjunct with retrograde Mars in the sign of the Twins. This configuration indicates a high degree of reactivity and emotionality: these days we will have plenty of opportunities to learn from our triggers and explore how to navigate disagreements, conflicts, or misunderstandings from a curious rather than reactive place. This lunation will inspire reassessment and redefinition of how we assert our ideas, needs, and desires, and will offer us opportunities to discover more mature ways of expressing and communicating what we are feeling, particularly when we are emotionally triggered.

Venus enters Capricorn

Dec 9, 2022, 10:54 PM ET


Venus entering Capricorn inspires a grounded approach to relationships and financial matters and reflects an increased desire for commitment and consistency. During this transit, we value steadiness, stability, and reliability: things are getting serious. We are less interested in playing, experimenting, or exploring a variety of relationship styles, as might have been the case while Venus was in Sagittarius. As we proceed in our maturation process, we also begin to understand that to truly commit to loving another we have to, first and foremost, be committed to loving ourselves. Read full article here.


December 2022 Astrology: Jupiter enters Aries

Dec 20, 2022, 09:33 AM ET


Shortly before the Solstice, Jupiter comes back into Aries after a brief retrogradation into Pisces. This shift motivates us to move forward with confidence, courage, and boldness. The Lord of Luck and Abundance is comfortable both in Pisces and in Aries. In the sign of the Ram, Jupiter expresses his most extroverted, expansive, and dare-devil qualities. Jupiter’s journey through Aries increases our energy levels, our vitality, and our stamina. This shift represents an invitation to take tangible action on the dreams and visions inspired by Jupiter’s transit through Pisces.


Capricorn season begins

Dec 21, 2022, 4:49 PM ET


The Solstice brings a strong energetic shift and a new season begins as the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Capricorn. After the expansion that took place during Sagittarius season, it is time to organize and structure the energy: contraction always follows expansion. This is the time to decide how to practically apply the wisdom and the knowledge we gathered during Sagittarius season and what to build with it. Capricorn season represents a time of maturation and an invitation to commit to living in integrity with our truth and with our ethical and moral values. The Sun entering Capricorn brings the spotlight on our path of self-mastery and the need to structure our lives in a way that supports our integrity.


December 2022 Astrology: New Moon in Capricorn

Dec 23, 2022, 05:16 AM ET


The New Moon in Capricorn invites us to begin a new relationship with structure, commitment, and responsibility and inspires us to create more authentic structures. This lunation will give us opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of how our conditioning and programming have been influencing us and will motivate us to redefine what our true ambitions are and what success means for us. The Capricorn New Moon invites us to explore new ways of making a positive impact on society through work that we are passionate about and that has the potential to generate lasting value and tangible impact on the collective.


Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn

Dec 29, 2022, 04:31 AM ET


By the end of the month, Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn while in conjunction with Venus and Pluto. This shift promotes a restructuring of habitual thinking patterns and mental orientation to perceiving reality. It invites us to deepen our awareness of the weight of words and the importance of refined and conscious communication. Mercury retrograde in the sign of the Sea Goat represents an opportunity to notice where our perceptions, perspectives, and ideas are still excessively tied up to the conditioning we have been exposed to and break free from outdated and disempowering ways of thinking.

December 2022 Astrology Update: our Invitation


2022 has been a year particularly centered around our transition from past to future and the interplay of old and new values, traditions and innovations, known and unknown ways of being. 

Our relationship with the archetype of Capricorn, the sign of tradition, structure, hierarchies, and authority, has been radically and drastically transformed by the transit of Pluto, which began in 2008 and is now coming to a close. During December 2022, we are likely to see more clearly how our relationship with Capricorn energy is changing, both for ourselves as individuals and for society as a whole. This process is going to be particularly relevant for those of us who have personal planets or angles in the late degrees of Capricorn or the other Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra) in their natal chart.

The calendar year is coming to a close and we are wrapping up an intense and fascinating period of growth, full of challenges and changes, but also full of magic, healing, and renewal. 2023 is bringing incredible energetic shifts, the most drastic one being the first ingress of Pluto into Aquarius. This is the time to ask ourselves how we desire to revolutionize our lives, and what we feel ready to let go of to make space for what is awaiting us.
