Merry Christmas! It’s nearly impossible not to fantasize about the most wonderful time of the year as everyone’s favorite holiday approaches. Although you’ll likely enjoy the festivities no matter what, your Christmas horoscope 2022 will shine a light on what each zodiac sign can look forward to this year.
The holiday magic will begin shortly after midnight on December 25, when Mercury in Capricorn opposes Pallas retrograde in Cancer. Mercury will be in the pre-shadow phase since it’s gearing up for its end-of-the-year retrograde, so we will need to be mindful of how miscommunication or mishaps may pop up during the opposition. Meanwhile, the strategic asteroid will currently be rethinking its strengths and strategies while drawing upon intuitive wisdom. As these two come together, we may find ourselves staying up late at night trying to troubleshoot any potential problems that may arise before Christmas Day begins. Last minute grocery store runs to pick up the missing ingredient for Christmas dinner or getting creative with wrapping gifts after running out of our supplies will likely be among the few mishaps. Luckily, the opposition suggests that we can use our prior knowledge to intuitively course-correct any issues.
A few hours later, the moon will enter Aquarius, which will color Christmas day with aloof yet friendly vibes. It might seem like an odd lunation to have on such a nostalgic holiday, but the moon in Aquarius is honestly perfect for anyone who gets the holiday jitters. Luna can help us feel more detached from our nerves, which can help ease the stress of seeing family or making sure that the day goes perfectly. Given that the moon will form an auspicious sextile to Jupiter in Aries shortly after, there will be an underlying happy-go-lucky enthusiasm to help us go about our holiday plans. It can also be helpful for those who need to put themselves first, especially when spending time with family.
While everyone will be unwrapping their presents on Christmas morning, Pallas retrograde in Cancer will form a trine with Neptune in Pisces. The watery trine will be emotional, sentimental and mystical—perfect for making core memories with loved ones. Everyone will be mystified that Santa Claus got them exactly what they wanted this year, since the intuitive transit will be perfect for hitting the nail on the head with giving the perfect gift. We can even expect some waterworks since the touching trine will make us more nostalgic than usual, so don’t be surprised if you’ll reminisce over your favorite Christmas memories with your loved ones.

Not much else will occur throughout the day, so this can be taken as a Christmas miracle since there won’t be any transits that could influence the holly jolly atmosphere to go either way. By the early evening, the moon in Aquarius will trine Mars retrograde in Gemini, which will allude to a social and mental alliance between these two celestial bodies. Dinnertime conversations will be quick, witty and spontaneous without being emotionally reactive. However, Mars retrograde can still bring out unwarranted verbal attacks, so don’t read into any comments that may come across as obtuse or uncaring. Aside from dinnertime conversations, you may notice that everyone will become particularly action-focused during this trine. People may begin cleaning up, someone may try to kickstart a game that everyone can play, or it could even be time to open more presents. Since this trine is somewhat disorganized, there might be a few events going on at once since everyone will be antsy to do something!
Later in the evening, the moon will form a sextile to Chiron in Aries and then square the lunar nodes. Thankfully, these more challenging aspects will occur when the festivities are either over or coming to a close. Rolling with the punches will be the protocol during the sextile since the moon and Chiron might bring out a more melancholic vibe. Although the sextile could be potentially emotionally reactive, it could also be healing. You may feel more self-assured with how you handled family or dealt with issues throughout the day. It might even be your cosmic cue that some past holiday pains have healed over time as well! Finally, the lunar square with the South Node in Scorpio and North Node in Taurus might feel like a catch-22 with giving and receiving gifts. Reflecting on the value of what was exchanged might come up as an afterthought, especially if you received something that doesn’t quite fit you. But, as the old saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts”. Let go of any internal struggles about the worth of the gift exchange by focusing on the high points of your Christmas.
