Your December 2022 Tarotoscopes

four tarot cards spread out on a white table with crystals

December is here — a time when we peel through our initial New Year’s resolutions, plan to make new ones, and reflect contemplatively on the year so far.

The holiday season is also here, and we’ll be experiencing both spontaneous and whimsical Sagittarius season alongside practical and grounding Capricorn season for this month.

This mix of energy can seem wildly contrasting at first, but December tends to hold many special events all at once anyway — holiday times, preparation for the New Year, and so on and so forth.

But what does the Tarot have to say about this month? We checked in for you, pulling one card from the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana each!

December 2022 Tarotscopes

Aries

The Fool & Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)

Aries is prepared to have a fun, exciting time with The Fool on the table.

New beginnings are here, or so you’re hoping. You’re ready to jump into the new and leave behind the old, and it’s not so surprising when you consider that Aries love to be the first to jump on the next big thing — even if you’re a bit early to the jump.

Your enthusiasm is not discouraged. In fact, it’s a good thing that you’re readying yourself for fresh starts. But with the Queen of Pentacles reversed, you also need to ensure you’re not just throwing caution to the wind entirely.

Balance out that spontaneous, go-getter energy with some deep breaths and occasional moments of pause and patience. That’s your recipe for success this month!

Taurus

Death (Reversed) & Page of Cups

Taurus may be struggling with change and renewal, but you’ve still got some resources up your sleeve.

Death reversed points to a classic human issue — moving forward is hard. Sometimes you just feel “stuck” inexplicably, and it feels like you’re repeating old cycles over and over, and not in a comforting, familiar way.

The Page of Cups advises you to embrace youthfulness, playfulness, creative joys, and intuition. The solutions to your problems may not be big or dramatic — they might instead be found in relaxing, having a good time, and letting your intuition call the shots.

In other words, your mind may struggle to plan the next steps, but your heart always knows what’s up.

Gemini

Temperance & 9 of Pentacles (Reversed)

Gemini is embracing a productive, balanced flow this month with Temperance.

You’re cultivating patience, a variety of skills (both internal and external), and finding flow this December. This feels like an intentional step as you try to find your footing heading into the New Year.

However, the 9 of Pentacles reversed warns against pushing yourself too hard. As a card of reward and indulgence, its reversal suggests that you might be doing too much of an “all work and no play” approach.

While your productive and positive attitude is commendable, don’t get so sucked into the idea of balance and productivity that you lose it entirely.

Cancer

The Sun (Reversed) & King of Cups (Reversed)

Cancer is experiencing a whirlwind of emotions this month.

More specifically, The Sun reversed, and the King of Cups reversed both points to you simply not feeling much like yourself this December. Call it end-of-the-year blues, but whatever it is, it’s looking like your emotional reserves are depleted.

It may feel like all of your best qualities and skills (your emotional intelligence, intuition, control over your heart) are suddenly missing, like they grew legs and walked off.

In a time of feeling out of touch with your core self, it’s not time to look outside to find solutions. Go within, and rediscover what rests in your soul, Cancer.

Leo

The World (Reversed) & 9 of Swords (Reversed)

Leo is trying to make big strides, but not everything is coming together.

The 9 of Swords reversed is a commendable effort on your part, showing you trying to put anxieties and negative thought patterns to rest. But The World reversed points to the fact that you’re not as close to the finish line as you might want to be.

The road is not yet over. You may be doing your best to move on to bigger and better things, but it still feels like something is “missing.” This feeling can be frustrating, but it’s not a sign to give up.

Chin up, brave lion. The road may not be close to finished, but you should still keep walking!

Virgo

The Hanged Man (Reversed) & Queen of Wands

Virgo, you’re feeling bold and in a confident groove this month.

The Queen of Wands brings spark, passion, and willpower synthesized into a mature, confident figure. In other words, this is you this month, tapping into a more spontaneous and outspoken energy that Virgos don’t always tend to embody.

The catch? The Hanged Man reversed warns of doing too much too quickly and growing overconfident in those plans and ideas. From time to time, it’ll still be in your benefit to channel the down-to-earth, practical Virgo energy you’re known for.

This doesn’t mean tone down your moment of fire and pizzazz — it just means… do it the Virgo way. Your way.

Libra

The Devil & 3 of Swords

Libra is handed a rough deal this December, but it’s nothing you can’t handle.

The Devil and 3 of Swords highlight some of your darkest inner demons. These are your shadows and nightmares — the heartbreaks you thought you healed from, the bad habits that come up again and again, and the version of yourself that you like the least.

Sometimes, facing a clear enemy head-on is better than skating around a vague, foggy issue or not knowing what to do next. This set of cards seems daunting, but you know exactly what you’re dealing with here.

After all, they may be darker shadows within you, but they’re still a part of you. Show yourself some love this month, and let the road to healing begin.

Scorpio

The Chariot (Reversed) & 7 of Swords

Scorpio, you may find it difficult to “get it right this month.”

The Chariot reversed points to difficulties surrounding making progress and channeling your willpower toward a singular goal. You’re feeling frazzled and scattered this month, which would be okay to handle on its own.

But coupled with the 7 of Swords, you may find that the world around you seemingly is creating more messes than necessary right now. People are prone to telling silly white lies, making excuses, and, plain and simple, skating by with sketchy behavior.

This is a recipe for frustration, as finding your footing when others won’t get their act together isn’t easy. But this isn’t a time to waver in your values, either. Stand firm in who you are, Scorpio — there’s always a way through.

Sagittarius

The Emperor & Knight of Pentacles (Reversed)

Ready to take control, Sagittarius?

The Emperor indicates that you very well may be. It’s time to take the reins, call the shots, and build the foundations and structures you’ve been planning for ages. Whether it’s in home, career, or even building the relationship of your dreams, this is your time to set up the foundation for it to rest on.

The only caveat here is that the Knight of Pentacles reversed hints that you may struggle with the slower, more mundane aspects of this work. This is an exciting time, but not all the work involved is literally shiny and dazzling.

Basically, work firmly and lead confidently, but don’t rush through this time period, Sagittarius.

Capricorn

The Hermit (Reversed) & 6 of Wands (Reversed)

You may be feeling off your game this month, Capricorn.

The Hermit reversed illuminates some frustrations with your inner dialogue — you may feel disconnected from what you know or feel like you suddenly are unsure where the real answers lie.

Coupled with the 6 of Wands reversed, we’re looking at a real hit to your confidence this month, Capricorn. It feels like you’re not getting the recognition for your ideas and energy that you deserve, which can create a vicious cycle of not feeling good enough overall.

This month, hold space for how difficult these feelings can be, even if you logically know that they’re not true.

Aquarius

The Empress (Reversed) & 4 of Wands (Reversed)

Aquarius may be struggling to set up the abundance they desire.

The Empress reversed highlights shakiness in your ability to plant and cultivate metaphorical new seeds. Your creative juices may be running on empty, and the 4 of Wands reversed doesn’t exactly help.

This card indicates that others may not be offering the support you need to get back to your typically creative, eclectic Aquarian self. You’re usually full of innovation, but this month the tank seems to be running dry.

So, Aquarius, this may be a time of rest and reconnecting with yourself instead. Who knows? It may be a blessing in disguise.

Pisces

The Tower & 10 of Pentacles

A true mixed bag is on the table for Pisces this month.

The Tower shakes things up, always. It demands change and renewal from the bottom up — or in other words, it’ll hit the foundation and core structure of everything you thought was familiar and stable.

This sounds scary until you look at the 10 of Pentacles (which is also in your hand). Themes of long-term legacies, stability, and abundance are on the table here. It reminds you of what you’re doing all of the present-day work for and what truly motivates you to work hard and move productively.

Yes, changes are on the horizon. Yes, they’re sometimes a little spooky. But it’s all in the name of a larger plan — and this month, Pisces can see that long-term abundance formulating… beginning with the old falling away.

Closing Out the Year With the Cards

The holiday season, and December in general, can be stressful for many of us.

Of course, a little guidance can go a long way. This is why the Tarot is so powerful for us humans and why we feel drawn to its mysteries (and also its answers).

This year, your Tarotscope for the month can be a valuable tool in navigating what’s to come. There may not be a crystal-clear answer to anything and everything, but knowing what the problems may be before approaching them can be a game-changer.

Circle back to your Tarotscope in times of need this holiday season or just as you move throughout this special month of December.
