Weekly Astrology Forecast for All Signs December 12th 2022
By our astrologer Elena
Downshift and get in the holiday spirit
Festive revivals and reunions add cheer
Slow down for a fresh take on an old issue
Time to slow down especially when it comes to your career, business plans or projects, Aries. This week has Mercury go Grinch like in your 10th as it enters retroshadow. Combined with your ruler Mars retro in your communication sector, this tells you to now park those ideas, launches or major moves until the new year. However, many of you could be seeing out the old one with a bonus, raise or early festive benefit thanks to a trine between Mercury and Uranus in your 2nd on the 17th.
So, take time out to just enjoy the holiday cheer and sharing good times with family and friends. The 12th offers an opportunity to get together with someone you may not have seen for a while now or simply find yourself in the kind of company which supports you and has your back.
Something you considered an issue or barrier to progress is highlighted for you on the 14th when the Sun in your 9th makes an expose making move on Neptune in your 12th. This in fact shows you this isn’t what you assumed or thought it was. Or simply cuts it down to size. Chances are if you hadn’t slowed down you might have missed it. This week could also revive something you thought n longer had a heartbeat. Just be wary if it’s that old lover filled with seasonal ho-ho-ho longing. It may not last into the new year.
In a nutshell: Put career matters on the back burner if you can this week and deck the halls with the people you love, Aries. Slowing down shows you the reality behind a situation. But watch out for that lover who simply wants to reconnect out of seasonal sentiment.

Be the void where gossip goes no further
Be retro-active ready
Ho ho ho – last minute surprises feature
Don’t be tempted to indulge in gossip and speculation especially around work matters this week, Taurus. If you do, you may find yourself in hot water or even pay the price for being distracted. For those whose eyes remain on the prize or simply living up to their responsibilities, this week could beam in rewards as the Sun in your power sector angles to Saturn in its ruling 10th on the 12th.
The reason I am telling you to stay professional at all times and to leave the rumour mill grinding to others is the Mercury retroshadow starting in your 9th also on the 12th. And a hard angle between the Sun in your 8th and Neptune in your 11th on the 14th. If you are travelling this holiday season do pack your retro rules. Yes, if you are travelling back home or somewhere you have been in the past this tends to lighten the impact. It does not however make your sleigh immune to breakdowns, delays or lost reindeer.
The 17th hands you a last minute surprise or could see you kicking back and heading into full flung festivities on a high note thanks to a trine between Mercury and Uranus in your sign. An unexpected boost, bonus, gift or news puts you in a party mood and even gives you something extra to celebrate. Share the holiday spirit – not the tea this week.

Baby, it’s retro outside!
Prepare for the unexpected element
Don’t go from ho ho ho to so no
Baby, it’s retro outside! Ruler Mercury slows this week officially entering retroshadow in your 8th from the 12th. Combine this with Mars retro in your 1st and you could be looking at changes of plans, delays or simply Santa missing you out entirely this festive season. I could ask you if you already have a back-up plan or turkey in place. Just in case.
Someone may throw you a Christmas glitter curve ball you did not see coming. Now, this could turn out to be all sparkles. Or simply a big, wet ball of slush in the face. Mercury’s trine to Uranus in your 12th on the 17th simply says this is a surprise you can’t anticipate. And to be flexible as a result. Of course, this could be exactly what you wanted. Or you can’t wait to return it for a refund later.
The Sun remains in your 7th so we can’t avoid talking about who you want for Christmas. Or to spend Christmas with. Hopefully that person who gets you, soothes your soul and gently smooths away those hard edges retro Mars seems to be filing into points. This festive season you do need to choose who you spend it with very carefully. If you know that certain people get narky and needly as the Christmas spirit flows, it might be better to make other plans. If you’re already feeling that impending sense of doom around the obligatory family get together over dried turkey and stuffing, the best present you can give yourself is to send a gift along with your regrets. Ensure ho ho ho doesn’t turn into So No this holiday season.

The ghosts of lovers past could come calling
Make magic for yourself as well as others
What kind of love evolves your soul?
Running into that old flame at that Christmas party? On the cards for some this week thanks to Mercury entering retroshadow in your 7th. Before you pucker up and make up under that mistletoe however, do take the time to talk through what derailed you in the first place. Unless you like repeat performances that is.
All Cancerians are on the cusp this week of their yearly partnership peak as the planets move into your 7th. Venus arrived last week and the Sun lands next week. Past, present and potential partnerships of all kinds carry your hopes and dreams for togetherness on into 2023. Yes, this can bring a reconciliation and revival. But do ensure this is grounded in reality and not sentimentality.
The holiday season always delivers a relationship status update whether we want it or not. You can be basking in loved up, pure partnership pleasure. Or sometimes Scrooge McLove just says: Bah, humbug! The Christmas spirit may simply be absent and if you are honest, if this is the case for you, it left the building a long time ago. If so, you’ll tackle this when the retrograde of both Mercury and Mars in your 12th ends in January. The trine between Mercury and Uranus in your 11th on the 17th wants to show you a version of love that evolves your soul. Who offers this or where this can be found may surprise you.
Many of you may find yourselves having to do double time or finish up a slew of tasks this week before you can really get into the holiday mood. Don’t neglect self-care in your desire to make this an extra special time for others. How can you create something that evokes the magic of Christmas or holidays past for you right now in the present? Whether or not someone is making it extra special for you – ensure you gift this to yourself no matter what your relationship status, Cancer.
In a nutshell: Past, present and even potential partnerships feature. But whatever you do, don’t forget the partnership you have with yourself, Cancer. It’s easy to overlook it in your desire to make the holidays special for others. But don’t you deserve special too?

Dec 14 2022 Sun in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces (6th to 9th)
Dec 17 2022 Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus (7th to 11th)
Channel your resources
Keep it jingle bells not jingle mehs
Don’t end up the exhausted elf on the shelf!
Mercury is slowing down in your 6th and enters retroshadow in here from the 12th. It’s snafu and mayhem creating abilities are increased whenever it retrogrades in either a ruling sign (Gemini or Virgo), or a ruling house – your 3rd or 6th. Watch career and health matters and also taking on too much or trying to be all things to all people. If you have fallen into any of these traps you may find that you hit an energy wall as the holiday period gets in full swing and Mercury enters full retrograde.
This in increased due to Mars also being retrograde in Mercury’s ruling sign of Gemini and your 11th house. It may see you needing to decline some invitations now and focus on those which are most important. And yes, you can experience social burnout as well as the work variety. You may simply have to prioritise who or what is most important. And not feel you need to apologise or offer lengthy explanations for doing so. You don’t need to take a guilt trip on top of everything else you need to do, Leo!
That being said, this can be a joyful, jingle bell ringing week for you thanks to ruler the Sun remaining in your 5th and lighting up Saturn in your 7th. Saturn is all about the boundaries and what really matters to us. Hence, not being afraid to ensure your most precious resources of time and love are directed towards those who really matter. And yes, we all have a hierarchy, Leo. The 17th could deliver a surprise development around work, career or a gift that keeps on giving each and every day. And simply show you that drawing a line where you need to leaves you with so much more to give.
In a nutshell: If cast in the role of Santa’s Royal Helper just ensure you’re not taking on too much, Leo. It’s your holiday season too. A surprise may be on its way which adds some festive sparkle.

What you need may be different to what you want
Turn back to love
Yes you can change your mind
Ruler Mercury enters retroshadow in your 5th this week. And yes, this means you resisting the cuffing season urge to swipe, Virgo. Do I really and honestly need to read you the retro rules? This is your house of holidays so you know to pack alternatives if traveling away from home this festive season. Strikes, the weather, cancellations and breakdowns can and will occur.
Venus is also in your 5th and the Sun arrives next week. Turn up the heat on fun and existing or past loves. This includes hobbies and creative pursuits. Especially those which involve your children. And yes, that means you can buy yourself that Lego set for Christmas without needing to pretend it’s for someone else. No judgement, Virgo.
Just watch for past partnership themes. And those which may push some buttons. Your ex suddenly decides they want to change the arrangements around who has the kids and when over the holidays for instance. Is that an old flame or to preface Sir Elton – a candle in the retrograde wind? There’s a twist in your Christmas tale this week. An unexpected element which ultimately brings you what you need as opposed to what you want. It may arrive in disguise however. Watch the 17th as Mercury trines Uranus in your 9th. Is that something better on offer? Retrograde rules say you can change your mind – and plans and direction too, Virgo.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mercury moves to retroshadow and like the Ghost of Christmas Past could deliver a sentimental reminder of love or the Christmas spirit. A gift may be exactly what you need, even it it’s not what you thought you wanted.

Get a clear answer
Change may be exactly what you were wishing for
Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm . . .
After coasting into the holiday season on a high, something this week may give you pause for thought. You may rethink plans as a result of this. Mercury drags its heels in your 4th this week as it enters retroshadow from the 12th. And don’t forget you have Mars retroactive in your 9th. There may be an element of you telling someone to forget about it – but not in a generous, season of goodwill way. This may be more to do with you no longer interested in going along with the plans you made with them.
If you are getting a vibe around this, you are advised to get in front of it on the 14th and ask for confirmation that things are still going ahead as discussed as the Sun squares Neptune. And don’t accept humming and hawing either. It’s yes or no with Mars in your 9th.
Where’s the good stuff? The presents under the astro tree! The 12th brings you recognition, attention, maybe what you wanted or even romance as the Sun angles to Saturn on the 12th. All that glitters could be more than just the tinsel on that tree. But something is about to shift and the 17th reveals what this is. If plans change now the funny thing is you’ll actually feel relieved on one level, Libra. Funny how sometimes what we want comes in disguise. Or we only realise it’s exactly what we needed when it does.
In a nutshell: You need clarification and clarity this week, Libra. And if someone is sitting on the fence or procrastinating you may just move on rather than wait for them to make up their minds. Change may be exactly the gift you wished for.

Put work matters on hold – time to play!
News puts you in a holiday mood
Is that giving reciprocated?
Time to throw yourself head long into party mode, Scorpio. Forget work and business plans for now. Just tie up the loose ends of what needs to be done and then well – pick them back up in the New Year. This week sees Mercury throw retroshade in the direction of work, studies, teaching, writing, speaking, short journeys and the internet as it heads into retroshadow in its ruling 3rd in your chart. Ancient ruler Mars is full fat retro in your 8th. Both planets are retrograde in their ruling houses which tells you your best strategy is to focus your attention elsewhere for now.
The Sun remains in your 2nd of money, assets, possessions and yes, giving until next week. You may spend extra on your home, on entertaining at home or on family members now. There’s a theme around a nest egg or something hatching too. But when it comes to cheap, someone may disappoint when it comes to what they give you in return. This may not be a thing – it could be simply an emotional short-change. But it tells you clearly how they see or value you.
Someone else may surprise you in all the right ways thanks to a generous and electrifying trine between Mercury and Uranus in your 7th. This could also bring belated but welcome news you have been waiting for. All in all, this puts you in the holiday spirit. The grindstone can take care of itself.
In a nutshell: So long as you have done all you can, you’ll realise there’s no point in pushing work projects further now. So, time to party and play! Someone may be acting as an emotional Scrooge. Don’t allow them to dampen your spirits, Scorpio.

Translate that love talk
Slow down on travel and spending
The best gifts come from the soul
That double act, duet, dynamic duo, partner in crime. They remain in focus while the Sun is in your 1st. Give generously of your time and attention and you should see this reciprocated. While Mars remains retrograde in your 7th however, don’t insist on having everything your way. Or even all the attention. If you do this will be less about the cheer and more about the strife.
This is an excellent time to understand what that significant other’s love language is. Or to fully understand your own. There are various books on this if you are looking for something for that holiday read. By knowing this we can communicate in a way which makes the other person feel loved and heard. And by knowing yours you can let them know what you need to hear and how you need it to be said. This is important if you are one of those people for whom presents are their love language or if you partner is one. Especially if you want to avoid a cold front coming in this Christmas.
Mercury enters retroshadow in your money zone so understand if someone you love love language is gifts this is about the right gift, not the most expensive option. Do keep a tight rein on spending now. And if engaging in your favourite Sag pursuit – travel, apply the retro rules. That being said, benefits, bonuses, rewards or the perfect gift could arrive on the 17th thanks to a trine between Mercury and Uranus in your 6th. Someone could show their gratitude via your bank account. Thank them in their own love language, Sag.
In a nutshell: Understanding the many ways people say ‘I love you’ – and also how you need it to be said, is simply a recipe for togetherness. Take time with translation. And also understand the best gift we can receive is simply feeling seen and heard.

Take holiday ‘time’ for you!
Release anything that is stalled
Last minute bargains – and surprises feature
Schedule that appointment with yourself to see to your own needs. And whatever you do – don’t break it, Cappy, Me time should be taken seriously. Or that decompress/mental health day – whatever you want to call it. Maybe its a device/social media detox if only for a few hours. It will reset and restore your soul ahead of your new cycle next week.
Giving you a heads-up on the much needed importance of this is Mercury slowing down in your 1st from the 12th. How you spend this time is honestly up to you. For some this can be literally unplugging for a while to meditate, walk, or do something creative. Others may ruthlessly carve out the time to go shopping, cook, read a book, listen to music. What you choose doesn’t matter. It’s the effect of it that counts along with the fact it makes you feel happy.
Of course, the usual retro rules apply especially if you are traveling during the holiday period. Above all this week, focus on what you can do and resist the urge to push anything that seems stalled. I understand your need to wind things up or get closure. But around one particular person or issue this may not now be possible until the New Year. So let go and focus your energy on you for a change.
If you have left your shopping until now the good news is that you may find bargains or that perfect gift and get it done faster, easier and hey – at less expense than you thought. Maybe stopping for a mince pie and mulled wine is part of your reward process. If so you’ll have the time and the budget to indulge. This week puts you in the festive spirit plus an unexpected surprise on the 17th could just be the icing on that cake.
In a nutshell: With all you may have to do, do slow down and take time to ‘do’ you, Capricorn. Mercury slowing down in your sign reminds you to take a moment to recharge or simply stop and take time to experience your own version of joy.

Don’t push anyone for answers – yet
Is there a gap between expectation and reality?
Intuition gets confirmed
Do you get the feeling someone is withholding something this week, Aquarius? And I’m not talking about what they may have bought you for Christmas. Someone close to you may be keeping something under wraps that they may not yet be ready to talk about. This could be your partner or a family member. Your questions could be met with dismissal or denial. They may simply not want to worry you and not realise your spidey senses are already tingling which is worry enough for you. Take it you will get to the bottom of this by the new year and do take a touchy-feely approach rather than the direct one.
This is down to Mercury in retroshadow in your 12th heightening what you pick up from others.
Something could emerge suddenly which confirms your intuition is right on the 17th when Mercury trines your ruler Uranus.
Also let’s talk expectations, Aquarius. Around love, gifts, giving and that sense of what this season should bring you. Mind the gap in other words. Whether it’s the help you need with the preparations, the emotional support you need, the validation or recognition, you need to know others appreciate you. They don’t necessarily need to show this via a seasonal token. This is more about how you are treated all year round. Or how you expected to be. Mars remaining retrograde in your romance and pleasure zone is about the passion that keeps on giving vs. the kind that doesn’t love up to its promise. Part of that inner seeing into the emotions of others will also include you looking at whether emotional promises are being lived up to. Such as suddenly realising someone never tells you that you are smart, talented, cute or beautiful for instance. Ensure those gifts are freely given and if not – time to ask why not.
In a nutshell: This may be the season of giving but emotional giving doesn’t need a season. Feeling a little shortchanged in this area? What is or isn’t given verbally or emotionally is more important to you this week.

The more the merrier
Opt out of obligation and into the party spirit
Adapt your plans
Focus on larger gatherings rather than small ones now. And mixed groups of people. Family and friends for instance or diverse gatherings. Especially if fun and goodwill is your goal. Old friendships can be revived and do accept any invitation that comes your way from past connections. Ring around your old contacts and spread some cheer. Of course, the reason I am handing you this advice now is Mars retro in your 4th of home and family. It honestly does not favour family get togethers. If you are spending Christmas or New Year with close family -at their home or yours, the best advice I can give you now is to limit the time you do.
An off the cuff remark can end up being misinterpreted by someone in a way that wasn’t meant. Or you discover you have no more tolerance for Uncle Kevin’s non-woke worldview which only gets more extreme the more Boddingtons he drinks. So, do yourself and those you care about a favour and adapt your plans accordingly. Don’t be guilt tripped on the 14th into saying yes when you know no is best option.
The Sun in your 11th continues to shine on your social life until next week so do party and play with lightness of heart and guilt-free, Pisces. A sudden and surprising option or invitation may see you out of a dilemma when it comes to sharing that holiday spirit. The more the merrier when it comes to friends. The less when it comes to family. Time to set your own traditions for peace on your part of the earth this holiday.
In a nutshell: If you are in two minds over who or where to spend the holidays, don’t be guilt-tripped into ignoring your intuition, Pisces. It may be time to establish your own neo-pagan, extended family celebration which harnesses your take on what the holiday spirit should be.
