January Videoscopes will be posted a bit late - Thursday, Dec. 20th




ARIES:  Mercury, the planet of communications and planning, is finally out of his shadow. We now move forward in trusting what we know and in our communications and agreements.  The path forward affects the areas of big plans, travel, education, publishing, media, and getting your message out to a broader audience – your 9th house.  Venus joins Mercury in this area on the 15th, ensuring that contacts and communications are graced by her charm and benevolence.  Take your time with partnership situations and money as Venus squares nebulous Neptune on the 16th and then squares sensitive Chiron on the 20th. Use wisdom, compassion, and awareness in affairs of the heart and things you value. 


TAURUS:  Your ruling planet is on the move this week. Venus ingresses Sagittarius on the 15th, moving out of the deep and moody Scorpion waters into the philosophical realms of Sagittarius in your 8th house of shared assets, financial planning, insurance, benefits, corporate money, intimacy, sex, and life’s endings in order to begin anew.  Caution is suggested on the 16th as the Goddess of Love squares up to foggy Neptune in your 11th house of personal dreams and social contacts.  Compassion and sensitivity are in effect on the 20th when Venus contacts Chiron, the wounded healer, and supports healing regarding hopes, dreams, pals, and resources.  Take your time in contemplating next steps.


GEMINI:  You graduate from the doubts and confusion that have affected your relationships, clients, and business partners.  Mercury has now passed Neptune and is out of his own shadow phase. All that has been questioned gains firmer footing and integration as you take steps and engage confidently with others.  Venus joins your ruling planet on the 15th in Sagittarius but must also meet up with the dissolver Neptune on the 16th and then Chiron on the 20th both transiting your 10th house of life direction and avocation.  Insights and intuition are part and parcel of your relating dynamics, urging you to take a wait-and-see approach. You have done with commercial affairs – now apply this to money and love.


CANCER:  Confusion within the daily work environment, your schedule, and with co-workers is emancipated as Mercury shifts past his shadow (retrograde phase) on the 14th, but feel confident trusting your facts and synaptic process.  Venus joins this area on the 15th, bringing charm, benevolence, and support to your daily to-do lists, work, health, and handling the trivia.  Juno, an asteroid representing relationships, marriage, fairness (or lack thereof), and finance between partners, transits into your 7th house of partnership on the 19th.  On the same day Venus makes contact with Uranus, eliciting movement and innovation in career and work.


LEO:  The holiday season heats up as Venus joins a now fully awake Mercury in your 5th house of pleasure, leisure, competition, love, children, and creative endeavors.  Fun times are on tap as communication flows easily regarding your desires, values, and affections.  The Sun finishes out his final week in this same area before putting the focus on work, responsibilities, and health on the Winter Solstice – December 21st.  Being who you are—complete with passions and desires— is well received by the energies in your world.  Enjoy!


VIRGO:  Shifts occur in the most personal area of your chart – that of the home, wellbeing, feeling safe in this world, family, and living conditions.  What was confusing or misunderstood now clears up and you are able to plan next steps.  Venus joins the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius on the 15th.  Allow for adjustments as she (also) squares up to Neptune and Chiron, which are both transiting your 7th house of partnership, clients, and business associations.  As communication straightens out allow the same adjustments in matters of money, travel, marketing, media, and education.  Patience is rewarded in matters of finance and love.


LIBRA:  Travel, writing, teaching, cars, electronics, and communications all gather energy as Venus ingresses your 3rd house on the 15th.  She joins the Sun and Mercury (now fully operational), ensuring a dynamic few weeks.  Take your time with money and self-expression as Venus squares Neptune and Chiron in your 6th house of work and daily schedules.  What you value is now put to the test in your interactions and work applications.  Venus reaches out to Uranus in an energizing and exciting trine on the 19th, indicating innovations in your communications with important others. 


SCORPIO:  Venus joins a forward-moving Mercury in the areas of what you value, your self-esteem, and the talents you bring to the marketplace.  Plan on a stronger connection with abundance and having more resources.  Mercury trines Uranus while squaring up to Chiron on the 14th, bringing awareness to sensitivities while concurrently taking inspired action – one feeds the other.  On the 19th , you apply your talents to innovate in the work and services you deliver.


SAGITTARIUS:  As Venus ingresses your sign on the 15th you connect with a stronger sense of wellbeing, grace, and the ability to attract that which you desire.  She joins Mercury, now moving direct in your sign, ensuring that discussions will happen with those who are important to your career and public reputation.  Venus ensures that you will present yourself in the most attractive and charming light possible.  The 16th and 20th are days to be mindful and aware of any illusions or sensitiveness you carry at the core of your being. 


CAPRICORN:  The minor planet Juno ingresses your sign on the 19th for a three-month visit.  Juno signifies the ways in which we handle receptivity to others, mutual sharing, power struggles, trust, and jealousy.  Through this transit you become more aware of what you need to feel satisfied in love and within relationships.  Balance intimacy with commitment and be aware of areas within partnership that bring up feelings of not being enough or helplessness.  Venus, the planet representing love, transits into your 12th house on the 15th, helping you deal with relationship issues from the past while encouraging the relationship within.  How we relate to self is indicative of the types of relationships we attract to us.  Life is an inside job.


AQUARIUS:  Mercury connects with your ruler on the 14th, bridging goals and dreams with your social life and partnership.  Exciting trends are promised this week as your mind opens up to exciting experiences and possibilities.  Venus joins Mercury in your 11th house on the 15th until January 9th, bringing beneficial contacts and friendly support to help you realize a personal dream or two.  Venus follows Mercury’s path and joins with Uranus on the 19th, which is a time when uplifting journeys of the mind unfold. 


PISCES:  Confusion regarding life path, career, the public, or authority figures straightens out this week!  Mercury is now out of his shadow (the 14th) and operating at his cognitive best.  Venus joins Mercury in your 10th house of reputation through January 9th, ensuring that professional support and recognition is on the way.  She squares Neptune in your sign (just as Mercury did last week), clouding your perception regarding your career and public role.  But on the 19th she makes an innovative connection to Uranus, suggesting that your talents and abilities are right on target.

 ARIES:  Mercury revisits the North Node, suggesting an unfolding of ideas in the areas of investment, long-term financial planning, and resources shared with others (spouse, corporate, loans, insurance).  This is a very new course of action that holds a learning curve or two. Allow yourself the luxury to let things take shape. We have one more Mercury Neptune square to move through on the 11th, so wait until the 15th to make commitments, sign on the dotted line, and to receive money or resources due to you.  The New Moon on the 13th brings energy over the next few weeks to your travel, educational, legal, publishing, foreign contacts, and promotion activities.  Uranus also moves stationary direct, ensuring that forward movement in goals, dreams, personal emancipation, and technology projects will gather momentum.

TAURUS:  Both Venus and Mercury make contact with the North Node in your 7th house of others this week.  New foundations and areas for growth are forming in your relating style and dynamics.  We are all entering fresh territory in the Scorpio realms, and to simply be aware without assuming we know all is a helpful mindset. When Mercury squares up to Neptune for the final time on the 11th hold steady, since the recent Mercury retrograde fog is still clearing.  The New Moon on the 13th signifies fresh energy in the areas of trust, closeness, shared resources, investments, insurance, and finance.  Uranus also moves direct on this day in your 12th house of spiritual activity and manifestation – another level of growth unfolds.

GEMINI:  Mercury conjuncts the North Node in the Scorpio house of work, health, daily schedule, care of pets, and those who work with and for you, indicating future growth and development.  Mercury once again squares up to Neptune on the 11th, so allow the fog to dissipate before taking action. More connections will be available after the 14th.  Mercury shifts into your 7th house of others, ramping up the exchange and awareness with partnerships, clients, and professional alliances.  The New Moon on the 13th further encourages new agreements, increasing contact and clarity in your important connections with others.  Uranus’s direct motion points to developing situations within your social milieu, personal goals, and technology projects.

CANCER:  Both Venus and Mercury connect with the North Node of dharma (or new and developing growth) in your 5th house of self-expression, the inner child, your offspring, creative endeavors, and love life.  Energy gathers in your daily schedule as Mercury ingresses into your 6th house on the 10th, indicating more busy work and communications.  The New Moon falls in your 6th house on the 13th, supporting new developments and increased activity over the next few weeks.  Uranus moves stationary direct on the same day and brings more change, transitions, and awakening around your career, true calling, superiors, and life direction.  During this holiday season your daily life speeds up.

LEO:  Home and personal life pick up speed.  Fresh seeds are sown as both Mercury and Venus contact the area for new soul growth in your 4th house of home, personal security, who you are when no one is looking, housing, family, and parents.  It’s too early to discern how the journey will unfold but trust that this is a time of new growth taking your spiritual journey to another evolutionary level.  The New Moon on the 13th promises that the more you engage with the child within, the more joy you will experience.  Opening the heart is always a Leo function, encouraging pleasure with offspring, creative activities, and in affairs of the heart.  Uranus moves stationary direct on the same day in another fire sign, Aries, spurring further change and growth in the areas of travel, the higher mind, gaining knowledge, marketing, foreign contacts, and world view. 

VIRGO:  You have a  sense of developing trends in the areas of travel, teaching, education, and writing. But Mercury contacts the North Node in your 3rd house, so let the fog dissipate while Mercury makes his final square of fuzzy Neptune.  Mental clarity and agreements will gain a stronger foothold after this week passes.  The New Moon on the 13th brings fresh developments within your home, family, parents, personal security, and housing situations.  Uranus also moves stationary direct on this same day, heralding five months of awakening, restructuring, and emancipation in finances, intimacy, your psychology, and resources.

LIBRA:  Finances, earning, talents, and self-esteem are the areas of focus as Venus conjuncts the North Node (future growth, dharma) in your 2nd house.  What you value, how you earn a living, and the practical application of talents is the cycle of practicality and getting real over the next several months.  The New Moon on the 13th in your 3rd house of communications, travel, writing, speaking, teaching, buying, selling, and siblings brings fresh focus over the next few weeks.  Travel, writing, and teaching are in the frame.  Uranus moves direct on the same day, bringing more developments and authenticity within your relationships and partnership patterns.  More change and movement.

SCORPIO:  Mercury and Venus conjunct the North Node in your sign this week, laying the foundation for future personal growth and developments regarding your identity, relationships, spiritual connections, personal goals, social life, finances, intimacy, and the ability to trust self first and then others.  Mercury makes his final square to foggy Neptune as he ingresses Sagittarius on the 11th.  Your thoughts return to what you value, earnings, and your talents.  The New Moon also falls in this area (2nd house) bringing new developments in commercial activities, your job, and earnings.  Uranus shifts direct on this day after a five-month retrograde and brings more change, awakening, independence, and psychological emancipation within your intimate connections, sex, and finances. 

SAGITTARIUS:  Your personal New Moon of the year (we all have one a year) is on the 13th and encourages changes in attire, make-overs, view of self, physical health, and goals.  Plenty of energy is available to you in any area of desired growth.  Both Venus and Mercury contact the North Node in the area of spirituality, manifesting ability, and rest/recuperation, aiding your personal life and deepest desires.  Uranus also moves forward on the 13th in the fun 5th house of love, offspring, personal creativity, and pleasure, helping you to awaken to authentic desires and breaking free of any self-imposed limitations.

CAPRICORN:  Mercury shifts into your 12th house (again, after his retrograde into your 11th), helping you to connect with the spirituality and energy within you.  The New Moon also energizes your ability to manifest that which you seek in the highest and best possible ways on the 13th.  Additionally, Venus connects with the North Node in the area of personal dreams and goals, ensuring that seeds are being sown.  Uranus moves into direct motion, firing the soul with evolving awakening, emancipation and change in your personal 4th house of security, home, and family.

AQUARIUS:  Glitches, hold-ups, and misunderstandings in your career begin to straighten out as Mercury gains speed in your 10th house of career and life direction.  Be cautious on the 11th, though, as Mercury makes his final square to nebulous Neptune. After that you go from strength to strength.  Venus also empowers you as she connects with the North Node, sowing the seeds for future development in travel, education, promotions, home, family, and parents.  On the 13th you have a New Moon in the areas of personal dreams, goals, socializing, friendships, and technology.  On that same day your ruling planet Uranus moves direct (after a five-month slumber), bringing more energy and change in your communications, local environment, and travel.  You go from strength to strength.

PISCES:  The path is clearing in the areas of publishing, media, marketing, travel, and education as both Mercury and then Venus contact the North Node of growth and future developments.  But Mercury makes one more square to Neptune in your sign on the 11th, confusing things momentarily.  After the 14th the fog dissipates and feelings of confidence and next steps move firmly in place.  The New Moon on the 13th heralds fresh starts in the areas of career, life direction, public reputation, and authority figures.  Mercury joins in as what you say and how you say it garners attention and support.  Uranus moves direct on the same day, bringing another level of awakening, emancipation, and creativity in the work you do and how you earn a living.

ARIES:  An affirming trine between Saturn and Chiron supports your inner life, including healing in the areas of trust and intimacy.  Mars’ ingress into Capricorn on the 16th energizes your working life, ambitions, and the desire to be acknowledged as an effective person.  The Sun’s shift into fellow air sign Sagittarius on the 21st draws your attention up and outward as you focus on travel, publishing, marketing, and legal affairs.  Education of any kind supports expansion of the mind.  Venus arrives in your financial sector on the 21st, enhancing your partner’s resources and your savings planning.

TAURUS:  Partnership dynamics improve and expand in a charming manner as Venus shifts into your 7th house on the 21st.  She brings healing balm to misunderstandings and opens the door to agreements and connections.  Understanding arrives this week, helping you begin the planning process with important others in your world.  Listen for interesting developments on the 17th.  A supportive energy helps build foundations with others and provides structure within teaching and healing environments.  The Sun’s ingress into your 8th house of shared resources, trust, and investments (both financial and emotional) occurs on the 21st.  This is not a time to go it alone—reach out for the support and understanding you need for your next evolutionary step.

GEMINI:  Endings in order to prepare for fresh beginnings are in the frame as Mars transits into your 8th house on the 16th and energizes your internal landscape, psychology, and self-assessment.  Financial dealings may be a focus, so watch your spending and use of credit cards.  Work and career are sublimely supported through the remainder of the month. Set up the day-to-day structures that support your vocational goals.  The Sun’s move into your 7th house of others on the 21st suggests a time when the others in your world hold more sway in your day-to-day decisions.  Retrograde Mercury and the Sun unite in the areas of schedule, health, and details while contacting the North Node, bringing insight into future developments.

CANCER:  Mars ingresses into your 7th house of others on the 16th and raises energy levels and engagements with others in your world.  Those other folks have needs, desires, and in some cases demands that will challenge you—handle them the most enlightened way possible.  Reinforcements are at hand in the form of a beautiful trine between Saturn and Chiron, pulling you forward, grounding you, and helping to create boundaries between your heart’s desires and the philosophical mind.  Seeing the big picture and attributing meaning to the everyday helps you move you through.  The Sun shifts into your 6th house of work, deadlines, to-do lists, health regimes, and co-workers.

LEO:  Insight arrives on the 17th as Mercury makes contact with the Sun and North Node in your 4th house of home and security.  A supportive energy enhances the structures in your personal life and the emotional and financial resources in your areas of trust and healing.  Mars moves into the area of work, health regimes, co-workers, pet care, and your personal services. You are more busily engaged in the daily schedule over the next six weeks.  The Sun shifts into fellow fire sign Sagittarius on the 21st, bringing a breath of fresh air to your playtime and leisure pursuits—life lightens up!

VIRGO:  Mercury makes contact with the Sun and North Node (again), upping your awareness around personal and professional trends.  Mars moves out of the area of home and family and transits into your 5th house of fun and adventure—follow your heart!  A supportive trine between Saturn and healing Chiron forms a bridge of communication and asks for structure in your healing communications with others.  As Venus makes her ingress into your 3rd house your mind relaxes as you assimilate all that has transpired in the areas of buying/selling, sibling relationships, and communications.  The Sun’s annual transit into your 4th house of home and family picks up where Mars left off. This energy reframes any struggles or conflicts and raises awareness in the most personal aspects of your life.

LIBRA:  Interactions with others focus on home and family when Mars moves into your 4th house on the 16th.  Hard work in the home, rather than conflict, is the best use of this energy. Saturn’s trine to Chiron promises support financially in the areas of real estate, family, healing, work, and the daily routine.  Venus shifts into your 2nd house of earned income on the 21st. Your ability to draw resources to you is strong through December 15th.   The Sun transits your 3rd house of travel, communication, and connections on the 21st, commencing an active time of information sharing and exchange.

SCORPIO:  Saturn in your sign reaches out to Chiron in a supportive trine. Structure unfolds in your personal expression, creative ideals, and anything heart centered.  This is the time for creating boundaries, and your labors of love and love itself will benefit as you commit to your ideals.  Mercury makes contact with the Sun on the 17th as both visit the North Node, bringing awareness and personal planning to the fore.  Venus moves into your sign on the 15th and ushers in a graceful period of validation and support from others.  Circle the first two weeks of December for personal makeovers that reinforce your attractiveness and self-confidence.  Mars revs up your communication sector on the 16th. You will be more active in the areas of local environment, buying/selling, communications, and education. The Sun moves into your 2nd house of self-esteem and confidence on the 21st and places more focus on you and your talents.

SAGITTARIUS:  Bridges form and unite the subconscious to your personal areas of security, home, and safety.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron offers you structure and healing in your inner world, raising your ability to be comfortable and secure while engaging in your personal journey.  On the 17th Mercury conjuncts the Sun and North Node in the 12th house of the past, creativity, spiritual awakening, and dreams—pay attention to the insights you receive on this day.  Your new solar year is upon you. The Sun’s ingress into your sign on the 21st assimilates your growing instincts into conscious awareness.  Mars energizes your earnings sector and motives you to earn more and spend more through the end of December!

CAPRICORN:  Any lethargy will dissipate as Mars moves into your sign on the 16th and heralds a time for physical work, autonomous projects, and the confidence to move on personal desires.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron makes a structural bridge between friendships, groups, and teams to communications, education, agreements, writing, and speaking projects.  Venus helps the process when she ingresses into your 11th house on the 21st, creating avenues for harmony in your social groups and professional associations.  The Sun enters the behind-the-scenes house of rest, relaxation, volunteerism, non-profit work, and spirituality on the 21st and helps you empty out and rejuvenate in preparation for your new solar year next month.

AQUARIUS:  Mars transits your 12th house from the 16th until the end of December. Allow for more down time and rest.  This placement also enjoys works done in private, spiritual practice, and awareness of anger and fears from the past.  The trine between Saturn and Chiron builds supportive structures within career aspirations and the talents you bring to the table.  Venus enhances these efforts as she moves into your 10th house on the 21st (through December 15th), enhancing your appeal, charm, and ability to influence.  The Sun’s annual shift into your 11th house on the 21st highlights four weeks of social activity, connections with friends, and associations.

PISCES:  Now that Chiron is direct in your 1st house of identity and how others perceive you, the compassionate teacher receives a practical and supportive trine from the practical and committed Saturn.  Areas of enhancement and support include marketing, media, legal affairs, educational activities, travel, and publishing.  Bringing more of your sensitivity and mentoring abilities to these areas will serve you well.  Also, supportive education and information is available for your healing journey.  Venus brings more pleasure and ease to these areas when she makes her ingress into the 9th house on the 21st.  Public life and reputation become more important as the Sun moves into your 10th house of visibility on the 21st.
