So, with open hearts and curious minds, let us embark on this celestial journey through December and January. May the stars guide your steps, illuminate your path, and inspire you to embrace the magic and possibilities that lie ahead.

Aries: Mercury at Perihelion on December 20 may lead to overthinking. Channeling your energy into creative pursuits like the Invitational Student & Foundations Portfolio Exhibition on December 7th can help you find balance.

Taurus: Neptune ending retrograde motion on December 6 offers renewed focus and determination.

Gemini: Despite Mercury in Inferior Solar Conjunction on December 22nd, potentially causing communication misunderstandings, the Quadrantid meteor shower on January 5th is a perfect opportunity to connect with new friends and expand your social circle.

Cancer: While the close approach of the Moon and Saturn on December 16th may encourage introspection on past mistakes, the Moon at First Quarter on December 19th is a powerful time for self-reflection and healing.

Leo: Although Mercury in Inferior Solar Conjunction on December 22nd might suggest caution when communicating with others, the HCC Singers and HCC Bain Center Senior Choir Concert on December 3rd is a chance to shine and share your talent.

Virgo: Even with Mercury at Perihelion on December 20th potentially leading to overthinking, the Moon at Apogee on December 4th provides a focused time for studying and preparing for exams.


Libra: While Mercury in Inferior Solar Conjunction on December 22nd might suggest avoiding gossip and negativity, the close approach of the Moon and Venus on December 9th encourages expressing love and appreciation to loved ones.

Scorpio: Despite the challenges that may arise with the Sun entering Aquarius on January 20th, the December Solstice on December 20th is a powerful time for personal transformation and introspection.

Sagittarius: : While Mercury at Perihelion on December 20th may increase impulsive tendencies, channel that fiery energy into planning a trip or exploring a new culture or belief system instead. Attend the Columbia Film Society screenings on January 5th and 6th with an open mind. Immerse yourself in new stories and perspectives. 

Capricorn:As the Sun enters your sign on December 21, you feel empowered to set ambitious goals for the coming year. Harness this motivational energy to outline practical steps towards achievement. However, when attending the Columbia Film Society’s performance of After Sun on January 26th and 27th, be prepared for some emotional moments and reflections on family and relationships. Seek insight rather than judgment.

Aquarius: Even with the uncertainty surrounding your future, the Sun entering your sign on January 20th encourages embracing your individuality and expressing your creativity.

Pisces: While Mercury in Inferior Solar Conjunction on December 22nd might suggest escapism, the Moon at perigee on December 14th provides a powerful time for connecting with your emotions and practicing self-compassion.


As the new year dawns and the sun dips below the horizon on December 31st, we carry the whispers of the cosmos within our hearts. We have traversed the darkness, embraced the light, and danced with the celestial currents.

Remember, the stars offer guidance, not destiny. They are a tapestry of possibilities woven with light and shadow, urging us to embrace the full spectrum of life’s experiences.

Whether you remain at HCC or journey down new paths, may you carry the wisdom of the stars within you. May your spirit remain open to the possibilities that lie ahead, and may your actions be guided by courage, compassion, and an unwavering belief in yourself.

Farewell, fellow travelers, on this celestial journey. May your paths be blessed with light and laughter, and may your dreams take flight under the watchful gaze of the stars.
