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.
