Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
Direct and honest, you are one of the most no-nonsense signs of the zodiac, but nevertheless have proven to be a bit elusive for someone who has been keen to get up close and personal with you.
Early December, they finally catch up with you, and sparks fly (and it’s not just the Christmas tree bulbs popping!)
For a few days, the pair of you are burning with an intensity that takes you both by surprise as Venus and Mars travel closely together in the sky – but mid-month your beloved may suddenly seem to change (‘you acted strangely…and why I’ll never know’ Cue the music!)
But happily, you will know – for it’s all written in the stars, and the reason for their blowing seemingly as cold as the winter wind outside your door, is that Sagittarius is suddenly giving them the need for space and freedom.
What do you do about it? Well, armed with this knowledge, let them have that space, don’t take it personally and by Boxing Day, you should be back in tune with your beloved and singing from the same carol sheet again, as your ruling planet also moves into freedom-loving Sagittarius.
And if you need further confirmation from the skies, good news planet Jupiter (if the planets performed a Xmas panto, you’d definitely be cheering for it…!) is bouncing cheerily through your solar house of significant relationships, suggesting that this is a positive time for you on that front.
So, eat, drink and be merry for, after a potentially confusing time mid-month, this should be an enjoyable and enlightening Christmas! Festive Greetings and a peaceful New Year.
Taurus (April 20th – May 21st)
It’s always the quiet ones you have to watch out for – and steady, determined Taureans demonstrate that old saying perfectly, and never more so than this month!
Let’s not beat about the holly bush, you’ve had your eye on a certain someone recently haven’t you – or have been keen to put some extra spice back into your relationship?
Well, dear sensuous bull, I bring you glad tidings – for, on the 5th day of Christmas, your true love brings to you – themselves. Yes, perhaps it’s the romantic glow of Christmas – but more likely your determined efforts – but finally, you’ve caught up with them and they’ll be just as keen as you are for some passion under the mistletoe, as Venus and Mars travel closely together in the skies.
It’s fantastic, it’s headily passionate, it’s just what you wanted – or is it? The trouble with intensity like that, can leave you feeling not just breathless, but like you haven’t got room to breathe – and when your planetary ruler Venus moves into freedom-loving Sagittarius mid-month, you feel a sudden need for space.
Days later, Venus moves into a challenging aspect with unpredictable Uranus in the heavens, reinforcing this need to break free, and surprising your beloved, who may find your sudden change of mood difficult. Faced with wounded pride, you may feel like disappearing completely over the horizon – but please, try and resist this urge, for the planets suggest that this is a relationship that could really stay the distance.
Your patience will be rewarded, for on Boxing Day, that special someone may surprise you by shifting into a more lighthearted gear as they inject some fun into the relationship and introduce you to outside interests that the two of you can share together, and going into the New Year, this looks like being a relationship that can really broaden your horizons.
On the work front, there is much to do in the way of everyday, routine tasks before you take your Christmas break, and regarding that next career move you are hankering after – be careful to take everything into consideration and do your sums. Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
Gemini (May 21st – June 21st)
It’s a very important month for you and those close to you, whether they are love partners or business partners. There is a stumbling block, though, that has been causing a minor irritation in your relationship, and you’ve been too-ing and froing over it – but just as you think you have sorted it out, something makes you stand still again and blocks your progress as you realize that it needs further consideration and communication.
‘Oh boy, what a great December I’m about to have I can hear you saying – but here’s where the good news kicks in. Around the start of the third week, the picture clears and you can look forward to moving forwards again, and as the year draws to a close, beautiful, pleasure-giving Venus graces her way right up next to Mercury, giving extra harmonious qualities to your communication with that significant other and joyous Jupiter also makes contact with Mercury, indicating this will bring glad tidings all around, and it’s possible that the news may not be too dissimilar to that which the shepherd brought….
Finally, as the party season’s here, and as you are undeniably one of the flirtiest, naughtiest, cheekiest signs of the zodiac (and I mean that in the nicest possible way – heck, I’ve got Gemini rising!), you will be glad to know that Venus’s contact with your ruler will ensure you look absolutely fantastic over the Christmas festivities.
The horoscope of the year 2022 for all the 12 signs – from Aries to Pisces
Cancer (June 21st – July 23rd)
The natural-born homemaker, carer, and nurturer of the zodiac, it goes without saying that this month is always one of your busiest of the year, as you prepare for your festive feasts, and make sure that everyone is not just catered for but cared for too.
But this year the planetary patterns in the sky indicate that you’re going to be even busier than usual on that front, with your solar house of everyday work and duties filled to bursting – the Sun and Mercury are both traveling through this area of your chart, indicating that you will not just be busy doing but will also be busy planning your Christmas lunch, down to every last detail, as Mercury is in the exacting sign of Virgo – though if you’re a typical Cancer, you’ll always cook twice as much as is needed anyway!
Venus also moves into this busy area of your chart on the 16th, indicating you will derive much pleasure from all of this activity, which would wear out lesser mortals. But not you, lovable, sensitive Cancer. T
o complete the astrological picture, energetic Mars gets in on the act, moving rather fittingly into your solar house of work on Christmas Day – indicating that it will be gone, go, go, and your Sherry at the end of the day will be well deserved, to say the least!
Amidst all this Christmas chaos, though, unpredictable Uranus gives you the sudden desire to broaden your horizons by learning an unusual or offbeat new skill, which may conflict with your desire to be Mother Christmas, to everybody, all year round!
You’re ruled by the Moon, so trust your instinct on this one – it will usually be right. As December draws to a close, the Full Moon falls in Cancer, and in your solar house of ego and outlook – so as we approach the New Year you will feel in your element, and the spotlight will be really turned on you, your outlook and a new way of approaching things as you welcome in 2022.
Leo (July 23rd – August 23rd)
This is one of your favorite times of the year, with your penchant for drama, glamour, and all things glitzy – and the fact that if you’re a typical Leo, deep inside you still like to believe in Father Christmas (go on, admit it, there’s nothing wrong with that – I still hang my stocking up!!) – and this year promises to be one of your best Christmases ever, as your solar house of fun and creativity (not to mention love affairs) is positively packed to bursting!
Your planetary ruler, the Sun, and mind and communication planet Mercury are already in that house, putting the focus firmly on enjoyment – and from the third week on they are joined by energetic, impulsive Mars and pleasure-giving Venus, so this really is a month to let that Leonine mane of hair down (like the lion, Leo’s hair is often their crowning glory, but I don’t need to tell you that, do I?) and have fun, fun, fun.
Don’t worry about tomorrow too much, this is the time to make hay while the sun shines (or to use a more seasonally appropriate analogy, create snowmen while it’s snowing!) because, in a few months time, responsible, sensible Saturn will make sure you are firmly grounded on Planet Earth as it moves into the area of your chart concerned with your general outlook and approach, so there will be plenty of time to do all that more serious stuff later!
Oh yes, and early on in the month, enjoy some powerful romantic energy on the homefront as Mars and Venus meet up in the sky – or if you’re single, a productive, energetic and enjoyable time is in store on the domestic or family front. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Virgo (August 23rd – September 23rd)
Just when you think your communications have been sorted out on the home front, you are halted in your tracks and forced to readdress something that needs further consideration – it could be that you were about to move, extend your house or even just make some subtle décor changes, but the skies indicate that there could be some delay on this front.
Around the third week of December, though, Mercury – your planetary ruler – stops kicking its heels and starts moving forward again indicating that things will start moving forward again for you – perhaps the contracts will be exchanged, the perfect color scheme will finally come to you – or it could even be that a communication problem on the homefront, or concerning family members, finally reaches a satisfying conclusion.
Most importantly, it’s all sorted in time for you to enjoy a fantastic Christmas, and with Venus joining the Sun and Mercury things will be harmonious and enjoyable on the homefront – oh, and for those of you buying a house or revamping your current abode, what great taste you have, what an aesthetically pleasing home.
As 2022 draws to a close, a lovely aspect between good news planet Jupiter and your planetary ruler Mercury suggests that all your activity and resolution on the home front will be good news financially – or, perhaps, more importantly, it will make you feel like a millionaire. Seasons Greetings, and a peaceful New Year!
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
With both energetic Mars and your ruler Venus in your solar house of money and self-worth, this suggests a busy and fortuitous month financially, with the two combining together in a powerful aspect in the first week – and there could hardly be a better time of year than now to receive glad financial tidings, for you refined Librans do put great stock on quality and a certain finesse when it comes to buying presents.
Mid-month, the emphasis will shift to busying yourself locally with general everyday activities as Venus moves into Sagittarius and your solar house of communications and local environment – and just at this time the New Moon provides the opportunity for a new start in this area or new approach, so if you have been neglecting your neighborly duties recently, or fallen out over parking spaces, accept their offer of a Christmas tipple, or invite them round for one yourself, for it’s the perfect time to patch up your quarrel, as Mercury is also in this area of your chart and suggests communication will be the key to resolutions you make.
As the month ends, the Full Moon turns the spotlight brightly on your career and ambitions – and it’s possible that your new relationship with a neighbor or someone in your locality, could bring fruitful rewards in this department. Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year!
Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)
With your traditional planetary ruler, Mars, in Scorpio for the first three weeks of December, you are going to be feeling very much in your element and there will be an incredible intensity to your actions, feelings, and general outlook on life.
With beauteous Venus also in your solar house of appearance, you will be glad to know that this Christmas, those bewitching, penetrative scorpion eyes of yours will be even more magnetic than usual and you will outshine the sparkliest tinsel on the tree!
But the chief focus for you this month will be on finances – the Sun and Mercury are in your solar house of money and self-worth, indicating that you are likely to be both planning and sorting out your finances – and the New Moon on the 12th gives you the perfect opportunity for a fresh overhaul in this department, which let’s be honest maybe much needed given all the Christmas spending you’re planning on doing – eventually!
Several days later, when benefic Venus moves into your solar house of worth, you will see the benefit of that financial re-jig, and when Mars moves alongside Venus on Christmas Day, you really will feel richly blessed and your sense of self-esteem and self-worth will be sky-high. As the year draws to a close the Full Moon puts the spotlight on broadening your horizons, either mentally or physically – why not take up a new evening class in the New Year.
Sagittarius (November 21st – December 21st)
For Saggies, December is one long party, and a time of double celebration – for not only is it the festive season, most of you will also be celebrating your birthday. For the first three weeks of the month, the Sun is passing through your solar house of ego and appearance, so it’s a great time to re-evaluate your outlook on life and where you are going – or perhaps just consider a change in your appearance for the festive season.
Whatever changes you make, the planets suggest they will be fantastic, as, from mid-month onwards, Venus will be bestowing harmony and beauty on you, lighting you up just in time for all those Christmas parties – and making you the belle of the Christmas ball! Come Christmas Day you are likely to be the center of much of the conversation and action, as energy-giving Mars moves out of Scorpio and your solar house of privacy and secrecy into your own sign of Sagittarius, making you even more buoyant and energetic than usual – but be careful not to overdo it.
The planets suggest you won’t though, as just as Mars joins forces in your packed house of ego, so the Sun moves out of it as Christmas draws near. Just as well, as no one else would have been able to get a word in edgeways, and they probably still might not be able to! For all those of you celebrating your birthday this month, many happy returns – and to all of you, a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Capricorn (December 21st – January 19th)
As everyone rushes around like headless chickens (or, with apologies to our feathered friends everywhere, should I say turkeys?!) in the run-up to Christmas, you are likely to be feeling distinctively out of step with the general mood of the masses – for the Sun and Mercury are both passing through your astrological house of introspection, privacy, and reflection, giving you the urge to stand back and reflect on the last 12 months. ‘What? In the busiest party season of the year?’ you chorus.
Well actually, yes…and no – for the thing about the planets is they often have lovely synchronicity and balance, so although you do need to take moments out by yourself to recharge your batteries, energetic Mars and pleasure-seeking Venus are both passing through your solar house of social activities for the first half of the month, indicating that you will not only get great enjoyment from this year’s round of parties, or simply quiet Christmas drinks with friends, you will also be very busy with your social diary full to bursting! Just try and balance the two, listen to your body’s needs – then when the Sun moves into your sign just before Christmas, starting a whole new zodiac year for you, you will feel ready to put yourself out there and let people see just how brightly you can shine – and there will be plenty of chances, not just at Christmas parties and your own birthday celebrations, but also in your career, as glad tidings planet Jupiter is traveling through your solar house of ambition.
For those of you celebrating your birthday, many happy returns, and to all of you, a very merry Christmas and peaceful New Year.
Aquarius (January 19th – February 19th)
Let’s get ready to rumble! Always one of the most sociable signs of the zodiac, this month will be one of your busiest of the year with communication planet Mercury, and the Sun – which shows the current focus of your life – both in your house of friendship and sociability and from mid-month pleasure-giving Venus joins them, indicating a very enjoyable party season.
As Christmas Day approaches, the Sun moves out of the area of your chart connected with all things social, and into the area connected with all things private, introspective, and reflective, urging you to take time alone to reflect on the past year – I know, hardly what you want when it’s the festive season! BUT… fear not…. the angels said…(Cue music!), as one planet leaves, another arrives, and as the Sun takes time out, energetic Mars moves into your house of sociability, evening the score.
It is true that you may not be leading the chatter over Christmas lunch, or even very talkative – by your standards at least” – but the key thing is that you will enjoy being with your friends and family this Noel, with Venus adding a harmonious and pleasure-giving tone to your seasonal social interaction.
With your ruler Saturn still in your solar house of duty and everyday tasks, as it has been for the past two years now, you are likely to still be feeling all too well aware of responsibilities in that area but midmonth, someone you meet socially could bring some light relief from all those duties
Pisces (February 19th – March 21st)
Dreamy Pisces, you are generally more concerned with satisfying your soul than with material wealth, so are not considered one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac – but arguably mistakenly so, for ambition need not be synonymous with monetary success, and you dear Pisces know that better than most.
That dream job you are after, this is the month to apply for it, for your solar house of aspiration and ambition is like Piccadilly Circus – on a quiet day!
The Sun, which indicates where your focus and spotlight in life will be, is currently passing through your house of ambition, as is Mercury – and from mid-month they are joined by benefic Venus, suggesting that this could be good news financially too, or that this new job will really give you that increased sense of self-worth you are after. This is also reinforced by Jupiter, the planet of glad tidings, making a wonderfully harmonious aspect to Mars and Venus in the skies above as the month draws to a close.
Be aware though that your unorthodox outlook in certain areas, or possibly the way you present yourself, may not be to the liking of those you are trying to impress – weigh things up, and bear this in mind, but don’t compromise the essence of who you are, I think you know what I’m saying here. The main thing is that you get that application out.
Anyone who lives with a Pisces will know that they often have a tendency to put things off until the next day, then the next… just happy to often go with the flow as long as they possibly can, but this month, the planets are determined that come what may they will give Pisces a push in the right direction as towards the end of the month energetic, impatient Mars also moves into the area of your chart concerned with ambition, too. Work, work, work – and no play!
Acceptable, just about for some signs, but not for Pisces, you wail…. But fear not, the planets have ensured you will have an enjoyable Christmas, as the Sun moves into your house of sociability on the 21st, just before the festive bells ring out. Merry Christmas – and a peaceful New Year!
