Star Wisdom: Building from Insights


December packs more twists and turns than a paperback thriller. Fasten your seatbelt, throw your hands in the air, and do your best to enjoy the ride. The Solstice New Moon supports you in making a quantum leap out of old patterns and into the new.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You get a stellar opportunity to challenge — and start changing — an old limiting belief about whether life supports you in being your unique self this month. Just in time, too, because a new career direction or opportunity to jump into the next exciting chapter of your life’s work is opening up at the Solstice.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…It’s time to stop fixating on that one burdensome relationship and start casting a wider net. The support you want for your creative project is there for you. It’s just coming from a place you don’t expect. Engage your network of friends and fans and remember that you can’t change someone else but you can change yourself.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…If you’ve been working hard on improving your health and managing your energy, Saturn’s sign change could bring a miraculous improvement in how you feel. Relationships are a huge focus this month and you have some very positive energy coming in to help you understand your needs and desires — and communicate them in a win-win fashion.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…With dour Saturn finally leaving your house of passion and romance, you see opportunities to bring more of your joy and creativity into your work and daily life. The Solstice brings a big relationship shift. You realize you can’t do this alone and you can’t do it with people who expect you to carry their share of the load as well as yours.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Your yearning to feel passionate and enthused about life again gets a big boost in the first half of the month. Set yourself free to live, laugh and love without restrictions. The Solstice focuses you on the nuts and bolts of your life, inspiring you to commit to a systematic approach to healing the money, health and energy issues that drain your enthusiasm.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Home and family become key points of focus as Saturn moves into your 4th House, inspiring you to heal the old heart wounds that keep you from feeling safe and supported in the present moment. The energy of the Solstice shows you a potential new life path that would enable you to use your talents and be of service — in a joyful way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Saturn leaves your money house on the 23rd, opening up new financial opportunities. Mars’ move into your house of creativity and romance supports this shift, bringing opportunities to make money doing more of what you love. Be aware: that ongoing challenge about playing out old family dynamics in your relationships heats up just in time for the holidays.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Congratulations! You graduate from Saturn School on Dec. 23 — you are now officially the author(ity) of your own life. Seriously, take time to honor all you’ve learned and overcome in the last two years. The more you focus on your strength and mastery, the more people show up to pay you for just being you. PS — Good money luck is looking for you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Several waves of positive energy flow into your life this month. And Saturn finally leaves your house of karma and brings his solid, disciplined energy into your house of self. How to make money doing what you love continues to be a big theme. Just remember that you can’t get paid for what you haven’t done. Keep getting started on your dream and sooner or later it will stick.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…The Solstice New Moon initiates you into your Plutonic power. Expect at least one big ending this month, along with an equally powerful new beginning. You can reap long-term benefits in your career direction, creativity, spirituality and health. But you must be willing to let go of the false self and step into who you really are.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Be willing to jump into inspiring opportunities in the first half of the month, when energy planet Mars moves into your sign and the Sun, Mercury and Venus grace your 11th House of friends, networks and dreams for the future. A very positive relationship could develop now. The second half of the month urges caution, meditation and reflection.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…So much of how you experience December’s transformational energy depends on how closely aligned you are with your own dreams and desires. You could strike gold with one sweet idea, but you must ruthlessly stalk that old self-sabotage demon. Which, in your case, looks like trying to live up to someone else’s idea of what your life should look like rather than just being your own majestically strange self.
