This is a fantastic time to learn or deepen knowledge of another language 🙂
Potentials for long-distance or international travel are especially amplified at this time. But the odds are greatly increased that any travel adventures, near or far, await. While this time holds many great potentials for travel from the astrological perspective, of course, the manifestation of these potentials will be dependent on world and your local circumstances. To whet your travel appetite for the future and have more support and resources for trips you would love to take at some point, check out my travel blog AstrologyKissedTravelBliss.com
The Sun’s movement through your 9th house can also activate spiritual studies or church-related activities. Inspiration and optimism often accompany this transit so have a notebook ready for the great ideas and insights that will roll through you. Opportunities to step up your participation in Spirit-driven activities will be more likely at this time.
The desire to learn will likely be strong this month. Going on a ‘library bender’ is a fantastic way to use this energy. Courses of study and education of any kind could be a great use of the current and upcoming energy. This could be an amazing time to take courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
Writing, publishing, and public speaking projects are lit up BEAUTIFULLY at this time!
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. The house lit up for you now is also the house of publishing and public speaking. Opportunities in these arenas could come up now and the transits now could bring in big news and big opportunities. Some of these will have some tilt to the past but there are also wonderful possibilities for totally new ideas and ventures.
The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendent solutions. Imagine looking at any issue in your life from the top of a mountain. The view from this perspective can often bring solutions not thought of before. Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same line of thinking that created the problem.” Take this idea to anything that ails you at this time and watch the magic 🙂
December 2022 brings us to the end of the “eclipse season” that began in September. The heat of the season was really cooking in October and November with major news and events from the Taurus/Scorpio eclipses. The “Me/We” and “My stuff/Our stuff” polarities have been supercharged from these eclipses. Big news and changes to finances and relationships are increased for all signs. See my Youtube horoscopes (or syndicated podcast, Astro Kisses with Annie Botticelli) for October and November 2022 to see additional sign-specific manifestations and the eclipse themes discussed in general and for each sign for October and November will likely echo out through December, as well. While some big events could still roll in, this month will mostly shift us out of the eclipse drama phase and into the integration phase. The non-negotiable endings, exciting new beginnings, profound spiritual transformation, and surprising trajectory shifts that occurred in the previous weeks/months will start to take better shape now.
The tides are still strongly flowing inward and backward as Mars is still in retrograde. Dealing with things that come in to you on the tides, clearing up unfinished business, editing or revising, and leaving space for last minute magic. Look out for sudden surprise opportunities ( I like to call this “Last-Minute Magic”) that tend to arise during the retro times.
Mercury will also go retrograde again in December bringing lots of changes to schedules and plans. Writing plans in pencil instead of pen and leaving flexibility in your commitments this month will bring greater ease, especially from December 12 onward. Being the spider and letting things come to you instead of stretching too far to find them will help you to better focus on giving attention to what shows up. It may not be the best time for planning things in the short or long term but it is great for being present for opportunities that come in suddenly and being present with what needs your attention rather than conjuring projects. It is also an excellent time for research, education, and vision boarding.
Sagittarius energies dominate the first 3 weeks of December. Fun, frolic, and festivities abound as the spiral whirlwind of Sagittarius brings fresh busy-ness and options. Topics like writing, publishing, travel, languages and cultures, international business and immigration are all more likely to take front and center. Buoyancy, hope and enthusiasm get a boost with the Sagittarius placements and the moving direct of its ruler, Jupiter, very recently on November 23. This direct movement will bring life back into many projects that started to wilt in July.
Mars in Gemini brings fun relief in your busy schedule and just enough distraction for you to return refreshed to your list of things to do. If you are a writer or are otherwise creating spoken, written, or other crafts, you will be highly creative and soar through your projects. Working in short spurts might help you to be the most productive.
Capricorn energies start to solidify later in the month and ground out the spiraling frenzy of the previous weeks. It is a great time to get organized, mop up messes made by the recent activities. Things involving discipline and structure will be easier to muster towards the end of the month and these productive energies continue through most of January 2023.
