Weekly Astrology – 5 to 11 December 2022

From the early hours of Monday, Mercury moves up toward its upcoming square with Jupiter. The Mercury square Jupiter aspect will be exact in the very early hours (12:54 am C.S.T.) of Tuesday and will fade out by the early evening of Tuesday. 

Mercury square Jupiter can have us dreaming big, overestimating ourselves, or being judgmental. 

Late Tuesday afternoon (4:09 pm C.S.T.) Mercury moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.  Mercury was in detriment in Sagittarius, so the ingress into Capricorn improves the capabilities of Mercury. 

Mercury in  Capricorn can result in slower and more conservative thinking and communication. 

From mid-morning on Wednesday, the Sun moves up toward its upcoming opposition with retrograde Mars. Retrograde Mars is currently out of bounds, and will be a pivotal part of the upcoming Full Moon. 

The Sun opposition to retrograde Mars will be exact very late night (11:42 pm C.S.T.) on Wednesday and start to fade from late afternoon on Thursday. The Sun’s opposition to retrograde Mars may have us wanting to move quickly, but having to slow down or repeat steps. General irritation and aggressive actions may also be a part of this. 

Late night (10:08 pm C.S.T.) on Wednesday we have the Full Moon in Gemini. Full Moons are associated with times of harvest. There may be themes to do with endings, high points, or culminations regarding the topics associated with the natal house where Gemini is in your natal chart. 

Donna and I recently recorded horoscopes for the Full Moon in Gemini, which you can view at the Astro Babble YouTube channel

From late morning on Thursday Venus will move up toward its upcoming square with Jupiter. The Venus square Jupiter aspect will be exact mid-morning (6:36 am C.S.T.) on Friday and start to fade out from the early hours of Saturday. 

Venus square Jupiter can sometimes be a little bit too much of a good thing. It’s very easy to overindulge in what we enjoy at this time. 

Late night (9:55 pm C.S.T.) on Friday, Venus moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn. When Venus is in Capricorn we may want more security and stability in our relationships at this time. 

All times and dates given are United States Central Standard Time (C.S.T.).

After 6 years of providing weekly horoscopes, I have decided to move away from writing them for the website. However, I will still provide a weekly astrology round-up of what is happening in the skies.

For those interested in horoscopes, you might consider the Astro Babble podcast that I and Donna from Donna B Astrology co-host. We record horoscopes for the New and Full Moons, look ahead at the planetary aspects for the following two weeks and give our take on them. You can find the latest New or Full Moon podcast on the front page of this website or over at the Astro Babble YouTube Channel
