#141 December 19-25: The Sun and New Moon in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Aries


Ingrid and Scott begin the week by delving into a backlog of your amazing questions, which cover everything from what makes an alignment positive, or negative, the North Node, what it means to have a 2nd House Moon, and can Scott help you figure out your birth time if you don’t know what time you were born.

The Sun brings its vital light in Capricorn, joining Mercury and Venus, and is shortly thereafter joined by the Moon creating the New Moon in Capricorn. Set your intentions for the goals that are worth your time.

Chiron and Mars also play a major role this week in pushing you to face your insecurities to ask the questions you are afraid to ask, and giving you the courage to put your words into action.

#141 The Sun and New Moon in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Aries

The themes this week are…

1. Courage

2. Communication

3. Responsibility

The impending Mercury retrograde has leveled a frequency for what has already been a bumpy ride before the week has begun.

Hold steady, and continue to work with the energy, as the tone shifts with the Sun transiting into Capricorn, shortly after Jupiter transits into Aries.

Take responsibility for who you are by doing the work necessary to authentically express yourself. Ask questions, courageously, for the purpose of gathering information to determine if those you are surrounding yourself with are an appropriate reflection of you.

Now is the time to climb toward your goals, but take your time. Rushing may prevent you from getting to where you want to go within the timeframe that you wish to get there, as along the way you could get knocked down a ledge, or two.

Be patient. Focus on each step, and you will get there in the time you were meant to arrive.

If you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

MONDAY, December 19

Venus in Capricorn Square Chiron Retrograde in Aries

Venus in Capricorn means it is time to bring some maturity to your relationships.

Are you lacking in maturity as a partner?

Is your partner lacking in maturity, whether that partner be a business partner, lover, or friend?

The alignment with Chiron is calling you to face your fears, or insecurities in these areas.

How can you do a better job of holding yourself accountable for your responsibilities within your relationships?

Do you have the courage to hold your partners accountable for what they have agreed to bring to the relationship?

When: December 17 – 20


Venus in Capricorn Trine the North Node Retrograde in Taurus

Responsibilities are rooted in self-worth.

Self-worth is rooted in values.

If your values are strong, your self-worth is high, and if your self-worth is high, you are willing to take responsibility to maintain that standard within your relationships.

Hold yourself accountable to establish and secure your self-worth. Surround yourself with those who honor, reflect, or respect what you value. By doing so, those you are in a relationship with will lift you to new levels of achievement, and you will do the same with them.

When: December 18 – 21


Mars Retrograde in Gemini Sextile Chiron Retrograde in Aries

From Monday to Thursday, Mars and Chiron will both be aligned at 11° in the two Signs they are transiting. Gemini for Mars, and Aries for Chiron, the Sign which is ruled by Mars. Of course, these two heavenly bodies will still be influencing each other after, just as they have before these few days. These, however are the days we are highlighting this transit, because they are the days that Mars and Chiron will be influencing each other most strongly.

In harmony with the previously mentioned alignments, Mars in Gemini’s alignment with Chiron in Aries, is giving you the courage to ask the questions you may have been too insecure to ask.

How does this resonate for you in your close, personal relationships?

Do these insecurities have anything to do with themes of maturity, responsibility, personal values, or self-worth?

Face your fears, and in the face of these fears, ask the questions that need to be asked in order for you to receive the answers you are searching for.

When: December 13 – 28

TUESDAY, December 20

Jupiter in Aries

Jupiter returns to Aries where it touched upon the first 8° of the Sign symbolized by the Ram between May 10 and October 27, before retrograding back into Pisces.

From December 20 to February 15, Jupiter will be in the same area of Aries that it was in between May 10 and October 27. Think back to what was occurring for you during this period, for clues on what could be in store for you this time around.

Jupiter is the Planet of Luck and Expansion, Lord of Justice, and God of Thunder. Transiting through Aries, the Sign of Courage, and Self-confidence, should give you a lift in those areas, or at the very least a push.

However, this transit may also bring an increase to self-indulgence. You are being pushed to exert your authenticity. The façade will crumble during this period. The question is, once it does, and the real you shows up, who will that be?

Will you be someone who lives from a place of true self-esteem and courage, or will you be someone who’s fears, and insecurities are brought to light?

Most likely, you will be both, as in order to truly express yourself confidently, you will need to face the fears that are causing you to hide behind a façade in the first place.


This Time: May 10 - October 27, 2022 and

December 20, 2022 - May 16, 2023

Last Time: June 5 - September 8, 2010 and

January 22 - June 4, 2011


Mars Retrograde in Gemini Sextile Chiron Retrograde in Aries

Mars in Gemini and Chiron in Aries are joining forces to push you to look in these exact areas, centering around fears, insecurities, and hiding behind a façade.

First step toward authenticity is asking the questions necessary to make sure those around you are reflecting you authentically. Sometimes, you may hold back from discovering what needs to be learned about another because you want them to like you.

If your desire to be liked outweighs your desire to be authentic, conflicts may arise in order to break you out of your prison of pretending.

When: December 13 – 28

WEDNESDAY, December 21

The Sun in Capricorn Square Jupiter in Aries

The Sun arrives in Capricorn with a bang, as it is met with a challenging square alignment to Jupiter, the God of Thunder, in Aries.

Capricorn is Cardinal Earth.

Aries is Cardinal Fire.

Both are Cardinal, which makes the alignment strong, however, Earth extinguishes Fire, and Fire scorches Earth, creating the stress within this alignment.

The Sun joins Mercury and Venus, which have been paving the energetic wave for the Sun through Capricorn, but the arrival of the Sun makes the energy clear…

What are your goals?

What is worth your time?

What is worth your work?

The next 30-days mark the time to put your plans into motion. Take the steps necessary to get to where you want to go. Less talk. More do. If you stumble and fall, get back up and keep climbing.

Jupiter’s alignment with the Sun may feel like you’re getting the boost you need in order to ascend to the next level, but the push may also launch you out of control, bringing you crashing back down to the ground.

Manage your expectations. Commit to the persistence required to climb to the top of a mountain.


The Sun is in Capricorn from roughly December 21 to January 20 every year.

The Sun in Capricorn is Square Jupiter in Aries from December 19 – 24.


Mars Retrograde in Gemini Sextile Chiron Retrograde in Aries

In order to climb a mountain, you must gather the information necessary before you begin.

Are there any areas of your life you have been hiding from?

If so, what are you hiding from?

What parts of yourself, or those around you that you are most fearful of investigating?

What areas do you need to investigate in order to alleviate the insecurities you may be experiencing.

When: December 13 – 28

THURSDAY, December 22

Venus in Capricorn Trine Uranus Retrograde in Taurus

If the values of your relationships are feeling out of balance, there may be a shock which occurs to realign them.

Sometimes you have to come back down the mountain reassess where you are in order to make the push to ascend to the peak.

What is the status of your relationships?

What is the status of the goals you have for your relationships?

Do the individuals you are in relationships, with, lovers, friends, or business partners, match your energy, do they honor, reflect, or respect your values?

There may be an urge to shake things up with your relationships during this transit, perhaps in a good way.

Of course, with Mercury in its retrograde shadow, and Mars retrograde, you may want to restrain yourself from making any unexpected shifts. That being said, Uranus is all about the unexpected, so perhaps just go with the flow.

Whatever choices you make around your relationships at this time, honor your values, and ascend towards your goals.

When: December 20 – 23
