We have some interesting new vibrations coming in this month as Mercury, Venus and Jupiter change signs and all the planets are traveling between Scorpio and Taurus this month so half of the zodiac signs are empty. Not to mention we have the winter solstice, an eclipse on Christmas and only a degree of separation between the rather harsh planets of Saturn and Pluto by month’s end. That is a whole bunch of change, folks, so buckle up as it may be a bumpy transition.
Mercury clears the degree of its recent retrograde phase on 12/7 so things that went awry during the Rx time can still be cleared up. Mercury enters Sagittarius on 12/9 and stays in the sign of its detriment through 12/28 so be aware that your decision-making ability may be flawed during this time.
Venus transits the practical sign of Capricorn until 12/21. It is a challenging time for Venus as she makes contact with the south node on the 2nd. This could bring in contact from relationships of the past so think carefully before you agree before deepening a connection with that person. Is it moving you backward or forward in your life?

Aries: Wheel of Fortune
This month, you may be looking at the ups and downs in your life and thinking about how they’ve led you to where you are today. The Wheel of Fortune card is associated with fate, destiny, “karma,” life cycles and both good and bad luck.
Sometimes we blame ourselves for the down times (assuming we’ve “brought it all on ourselves”) while viewing the up times as outside of our control.
We all experience these up and down cycles — and we all try to maximize the former while minimizing the latter. But the Wheel of Fortune — this version from the Alchemical Tarot — tells us that both are necessary and that the good times wouldn’t be good without the frame of reference of the not-so-good times.
Like the mythical Ouroboros or world serpent, the Wheel of Fortune tells us that there is no beginning or end, much like the rhythms in our own lives.
Here we see the two dragons — one white with wings and a crown and the other one red and scaly — circling the wheel together. As one goes up the other comes down, repeating that cycle over and over again in an ongoing (and never ending) process.
This month you’ll have 6 planets and the South Node moving through your 10th house — the area associated with reputation and public standing. As a result, this is the area you’re likely to see the biggest impact. You can take advantage of these transits by aligning yourself with their respective energies. And rather that seeing yourself tied to that karmic wheel this month, consider participating in your destiny and working to overcome the conditioning that’s held you there in the past
Remember that as one one door closes, another one opens — just as the wheel turns and the seasons change. Today’s transits speak of finding ways to voice your intentions while at the same time putting disappointments and heartaches behind you.
