Astrology Forecast December 25th – January 1st, 2023

December 26th, 2022

By Lorna Bevan

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Christmas Greetings to you wherever you are in the world.

This week, make your mantra Pema Chodron’s wise words: “I am the sky. Everything else is just weather.”

Expect a cat’s cradle of entangled loose ends, communication glitches, deliberate misunderstandings and personal dramas.

On December 29th, Mercury turns retrograde until January 18 conjunct Pluto at 24 Capricorn. Since Mars is also retrograde in Gemini-Mercury’s own sign-until January 9th, watch for a doubling down of delays, cancellations and closures along with increased cyberattacks and other major hacks.

On December 31st and January 1st, Mercury Rx is at odds with Disruptor Eris-archetype of revenge vendettas- just as Venus has a sultry tango with Dark Lord Pluto. Passions will run high.

Just stay on your Witness perch keeping clear of the soap operas and dramas. Knowing that nothing much is going to get underway in the outer world until mid-to late January, begin insourcing everything you’ve been outsourcing and de-conditioning yourself, so you can be free and still live in a world that is not yet free. So that you can enjoy the world but on your own terms.

Ask yourself:

  • now that I’ve stopped struggling, striving, seeking, and searching, what new freedom have I discovered?
  • since I stopped linear planning and trying to control the uncontrollable, where in my life am I noticing the next step just appearing in front of me?
  • as I continue to shed what I am not, stripping back to essentials, what is the greatest surprise and gift?
  • as I open to the possibilities in the collective chaos, instead of focusing on what I’ve lost, what is sparking my interest, summoning me to explore further?

No sign forecasts today as it’s Christmas Day.
