Star Wisdom: Focus on New Opportunity


December gives us the chance to end 2012 on a high note. Consciously feel your way through the collective fear to the abundance and opportunity of the new world we’re entering.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’ve been wrestling subconsciously with an old belief system that limits the scope of what you can do in the world. The New Moon on the 13th asks you to consciously meet this belief system and intentionally release it from your life. Fortunately, Jupiter and Mercury team up to make this surprisingly easy! You were born to lead and to blaze new trails through the world, and it’s time to get going.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Mars in your house of higher consciousness is driving you to get in touch with your subconscious beliefs about what it means to be in a healthy relationship. Start by acknowledging how much you can afford to give without compromising yourself. Defining what integrity means in your relationships is the key to reaching the next level of abundance.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…As Mercury returns to your relationship house in direct motion on the 10th, you get a blast of clarity about what you need from the other important people in your life. If you have to let someone go, know that Mercury and lucky Jupiter are teaming up to bring you a better relationship, one based on who you are now and not who you used to be.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…December should feel refreshingly routine until the Sun moves into your 7th House on the solstice, triggering a potential showdown involving a relationship partner and your career goals. The Full Moon in your sign on the 28th helps you understand more clearly how other people see you, and shows you where you need to set healthy boundaries to enjoy the success you deserve.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You’ve been sorting through some emotional baggage that has been unconsciously holding you back. Good work, Leo! Clearing that old stuff from your system frees you up for a creative renaissance in December. Consciously connect to the people and activities that bring you joy and put you in a state of flow this month.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You continue to experience revelations about how deeply your internalization of your parents’ belief systems has affected your ability to just be yourself in the world. You can let go of so much of this old baggage in December. As you do, you create space for your deepest intentions to manifest.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…You can heal your mind in a big way this month. As Mercury re-enters your 3rd House on the 10th, you get the opportunity to see subconscious negative thought patterns in a way that enables you to understand and release them once and for all. The Full Moon on the 28th brings either a new career opportunity or a deeper understanding of what really matters to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You’ve got so much good money mojo coming in December. To harness this good luck, you must be willing to differentiate your own beliefs from both the collective fear of impending doom and your own past disappointments and failures. Fortunately, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all team up this month to help you do just that.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Take her up to warp speed, captain! After a period of deep soul searching, it’s all systems go in December. Mercury returns to your sign on the 10th, bringing clarity and insight. Mars in your money house gives you the drive and sense of purpose you need to get financially healthy. You end the year with a bang, not a whimper.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…December starts slowly, but finishes with all of the intensity you’ve grown used to in 2012. You may have to make an important relationship decision at the end of the month, as the Full Moon on the 28th highlights the massive amount of personal evolution you’ve undergone in the last two years. Be true to the powerful, integral person you know yourself to be.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…One day you wake up to find that your dreams and goals have shifted. What used to feel so important now feels a little flat. This is an important moment, and you need to give yourself time to mourn what is passing from your life and settle your accounts with the past. Christmas marks the entry into your new life; you will know what to do when you get there.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You are redefining what it means to be successful, and you’re about to step into a much more satisfying way of being in the world. Look for fresh insight mid-month as Mercury re-enters your 10th House. To complete this transition you must be willing to let go of other people’s ideas about what success means. Tune in to what really makes you feel great and whole on the inside.
