Daily Horoscope for December 29, 2022

Our thought patterns can easily deviate from our current trajectory. Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn at 4:32 AM ET, beginning a three-week cycle when we’re better off focusing on old things rather than trying to jumpstart new projects. However, reining in our horses may not be easy as the Moon catapults into hotheaded Aries and joins boundless Jupiter shortly thereafter. A final conjunction between Mercury and loving Venus can help ease any confusion, but it’s still crucial to proceed with caution.

March 21-April 19

Your climb up the career ladder may require some careful maneuvering. Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn and your tenth house of career goals, so in the next few weeks, you may need to revisit previous projects to make sure they are fully in line. It is wise to put new ideas on the back burner, as they are likely to be eliminated before reaching any finish line. Instead, focus on fixing any imperfections you’ve already done.

April 20-May 20

The world seemed a little smaller than usual. Mercury is hanging up his hat and hitting the snooze button as he begins retrograde through your expansive ninth house. Normally, when the messenger planet visits this house, you feel free and at ease – conversely, its retrograde here may make you seem to have no room to move. Don’t feel as though you have to stand still and let the world adjust. Once things settle down, you can spread your wings and fly again.

May 21-June 20

It’s important to tread carefully where others care. Your ruler Mercury just turned retrograde in your eighth house of shared resources, which means you are likely to encounter (or start) an argument about what belongs to whom. Be careful when making assumptions, as you can quickly come to the wrong idea – especially when any financial bond is involved. What seems like a smart budgeting decision can end up being a really bad investment.

June 21-July 22

Your most important relationships may need extra care for the foreseeable future. Mercury is retrograde in your partnership sector for the next three weeks, making it almost impossible to agree with someone who is usually perfectly compatible. Don’t waste your energy trying to strengthen your connection as it might just create growing pains. Contracts are also best left unsigned – when Mercury goes direct, you should be able to bargain in the future.

July 23rd – August 22nd

Leo, you’d be wise to take things lightly for now. Your sixth house of health is hosting Mercury retrograde, which will last about three weeks. Burnout can creep in at any time during this period. Be careful not to pile more and more on your plate, because even when things seem manageable, balancing it becomes exponentially harder with each new obligation. Go through life carefully, taking only what you have to do.

August 23-September 22

Even if you’re usually well aware of your desires, that may not be the case over the next few weeks. Mercury is entering a new retrograde phase in your fifth house of pleasure, so you may feel that things that usually bring you joy are not having the same impact as usual. That doesn’t mean your presence has to be Spartan, but your aspirations may need to be set aside for a while.

September 23-October 22

Things may not be right at home. Your fourth house of home and family is hosting the current Mercury retrograde, which means you may be clashing with roommates or family members more than usual. It’s never a good idea to change anything within your four walls. If you rent, don’t be shocked if your landlord is less informed than usual about anything from noise complaints to rent issues. This will pass eventually, and until it does, tread carefully.

October 23-November 21

Life is about to pick up pace, but whether it’s heading in the right direction is another matter entirely. When Mercury retrograde begins in your third house of communication, it can be easy to miss out when it comes to weaving all the threads of your life together. Try to keep to a schedule so you don’t feel like you’re herding, but understand that despite your efforts to hold the fort, things will slip.

November 22-December 21

Being financially responsible is crucial, Sagittarius. Your second house of earned income is the backdrop for Mercury retrograde, so there could be quite a bit of confusion surrounding money in the next few weeks. Don’t leave it to fate! Check your accounts carefully and carefully – if you don’t, you could miss out on some important charges that can land you in an uncomfortable situation. Better to be safe than sorry.

December 22-January 19

Watch out – you might act like a bull in the china shop. With Mercury retrograde in your normally stable sign, the wind can be unpredictable, making it easy to say the wrong thing and put your foot in your mouth before you even realize you’re missing the mark. Be extra vigilant before speaking, and be careful about making promises you’re not entirely sure you’ll keep. The more you register, the more errors will occur.

January 20-February 18

Don’t be shocked if the world seems to be turned upside down! Mercury, the cosmic communicator, is retrograde today in your twelfth house of the subconscious. All kinds of upside-down events are on the verge of breaking out! The best way to use this transit is to focus on your mental health by thinking about any old habits that you should have retained in the past. Dealing with this should make you feel a lot better when Mercury turns direct in a few weeks.

February 19-March 20

Finding agreement with other people can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. Mercury will be dormant in your social eleventh house, so even if you are a talented internet person, you may temporarily lose your smooth tongue. If you can’t seem to find common ground, consider flying solo for the next few weeks—or, at the very least, give people space to reply to you in their own way. Don’t burden them with heavy expectations.
