Mars takes up a torch for this journey on December 13, lending courage and drive to pursue our deepest personal convictions. Though we may feel inspired to share our truth, it’s important to pull back from trying to change others’ minds. Busting out from conversation into arguments could be easier than you think during this transit.
A Gemini full moon on December 18 may encourage gossip and double-speak. Digest all information with a grain of salt during this confusing—or possibly emotionally irritating—lunation. Uncluttering your mind with unhelpful or untrue thoughts is the most powerful way to channel the energy of this full moon.
Venus begins a rare retrograde phase late in the month, slumbering in the cautious sign of Capricorn from December 19 until January 29. The ghosts of our heartbreak and clumsy financial decisions may roam freely during these long weeks, asking for resolution and rest. While stitching up old wounds and mourning unresolved grief may feel especially tender—or even tortuous—remember this is a necessary cleansing process.
