WEEK OF December 19 – 2 5, 2022
Santa’s Little Helpers have nothin’ on you, Scorpio! Well, not once magnanimous Jupiter swings back into Aries and your sixth house of service, systems and salubrious good health this Tuesday, December 20. Your inner elf is coming down from the shelf, eager to support everyone in your line of vision. But easy does it! The red-spotted planet holds court here until May 16, 2023, giving you more than six months to connect to outlets where your natural gifts intersect with the people who need them the most. If you’re thinking of volunteering, look for a place where you can show up ongoingly after you do a holiday season shift.
Since this is Jupiter’s second of two laps through Aries (the first was from May 10 to October 28), it’s possible that you’re already off to a running start here.
The sixth house is also the wellness domain, so speaking of running, vitality-boosting Jupiter in Aries could get you back on the trails, the treadmill or in tree pose on your yoga mat. Movement can and SHOULD be fun, as far as Jupiter’s concerned. Pick workouts or classes you love (or at least can say you honestly like) and commit to showing up regularly. For added motivation, pre-reward yourself with some cute sneakers or a Fitbit. When it comes to your day-to-day work, Jupiter could liberate you from the shackles of the 9-5 grind. While you need your security, Scorpio, who says you can’t have more of it by being your own boss or working as an independent contractor? It may be time to set up that LLC and create the ethical, sustainable business model you haven’t been able to find anywhere else on the market.
If you’ve been more work than play, that all changes this Wednesday, December 21, when the Sun beams into Capricorn and sets off a four-week social whirlwind in your third house of friendship, communication and local activity. Between now and January 20, dial back your competitive streak and embrace the spirit of cooperation. Once you relax and let conversation flow freely (gingerbread lattes or martinis, optional), you could discover kindred spirits, project partners and ski buddies sitting right under your nose. One might even crop up on Friday, when the new supermoon in Capricorn opens your eyes to promising pals. All you have to do is keep yourself accessible—which might mean, consciously NOT intimidating. (This may take a little practice o’ cool one.) They could be coworkers, friends of friends, even people you see regularly at your go-to local venues. Small talk could add up to big plans if you take the time to break the ice.
Got an idea for a book, podcast or maybe a YouTube series? This media-savvy spell could bring some inspired keyboard strokes—or mic drops! Your intuitive sign has always been a thought-leader. Now it’s time to get those ideas out of your head and into the zeitgeist. Some people may find your edgy ideas controversial, and that won’t phase you much. Just try not to start a debate under the tree or while people are sipping champagne on NYE. There’s a time and a place for everything!
