The Sun flows through your 12th house this month bringing great opportunities for finding inner riches, but there is also a catch… The same house that rules this place of hidden power, also holds your deepest fears. What sits as a potential for you at this time is nothing short of pure alchemy ~ taking the deepest and darkest muck in your being, coming from your ancestry, past-life, and this life time, and converting it into shiny, and very valuable, gold is the mission 🙂
Any psychological or spiritual work done at this time holds even more power than usual. Hypnosis, affirmations, subliminal messaging audio’s, and meditation are all amazing ways to use this energy.
Shamanic work is also extra powerful at this time. Anything you can do to gather lost soul pieces from people, places, and experiences will be even more profound and effective now.
The 12th house is also the house of dream-time. Your dreams may be more active now. Valuable insights about patterns, programs, and future trajectories may be more readily available now. Consciously using the subconscious space for problem-solving and manifesting is especially potent now. Posing a problem that needs solution to your subconscious mind before going to bed can help you to use the dream space to effectively work things out, helping you wake up with solutions. Lucid dreaming (where you become aware that you are dreaming as you are dreaming) may be more active now and if you would like to foster this experience, intentionally working on this now may be very fruitful.
The 12th house is like your attic: there is a lot to clear out and go through in this space but there is also things there that you will re-find that you will be happy to have back, and other treasures yet to explore.
This placement is a preparation for your birthday/rebirth time coming soon. It can be tempting to engage in avoidance behaviors as the 12th house is activated but consciously and gratefully greeting these things swept under the rug can make for an even more powerful birthday/rebirth/manifestation period.
Often in the weeks before birthday time, the things you DON’T want make themselves more apparent to better prepare you to make your birthday wishes to create the things you DO want 🙂 Do the work now and reap the rewards soon.
This month is also chock full of artistic opportunities. Magical, flowing, creativity is very common during 12th house transits so if you can get time alone to process and create it will likely be very productive. Also, if you already are working in the arts, opportunities for your craft to go to a bigger level could come now. You may feel drawn to bring your hobbies into the professional arena. If you are drawn to push some things out into the world that are ready to be seen proceed cautiously as the energies are more focused on turning inward and backward. The time starting towards the end of December will have amazing energy to start to turn your creations loose.
It is an amazing time for retreats, rest, and unplugging from technology.
When it comes to love, beauty, or money, Venus post-retrograde shadow transit lasts until December 18. The odds may still be greater that people will be having money issues come up so that makes it more likely that they will not be seeing clearly when it comes to their money or item of value. You can benefit from this by getting a great deal just take caution to not be that person that sold something of value for far lower than it is worth out of desperation or desire to ‘move on from’ it.
If a decision has to be made about love or business opportunities that come in now or for arrangements and agreements that have to be made this month, try to leave as much flexibility in arrangements to account for the changes that will very likely come soon, and know that the plans you make now may be shorter term than expected, or efforts may get ‘tabled’ for a time, losing steam, or be missing relevant information. Decisions and negotiations will likely carry more clarity towards the second half and especially the last part of the month. This time is great for long-term agreements and decisions.
If a decision or agreement has to be made earlier in the month consider a ‘bridge’ decision or agreement, where you create a temporary agreement that will be reconsidered and shifted later.
The retrograde energies can also bring in amazing things from past work so look for magical manifestations like this throughout this month.
After around December 25, the energies will open up beautifully for NEW things, important decisions, clarity, and agreements.

Also check out my comprehensive blog series Venus Retrograde through the Signs/Houses. Venus will be retrograde from October 5, 2018 – November 16, 2018 with the pre-transit shadow period starting September 4, 2018 and post-shadow transit stretching until December 18, 2018.
To see an extensive list of things I love for now through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.
The January eclipses will likely start to make themselves known for many with big news of major changes afoot. Manifestations for eclipses often start to roll in 4-6 weeks (sometimes more) before the actual eclipses. If something notable comes in and have to be decided upon, lean toward the second half of the month if possible, unless it is for something short-term but even still, look at paperwork and agreements very carefully as the retrograde energies still dominating most of December could likely factor in.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Aquarius Horoscope is more relevant for you.
