DECEMBER 2017 – Horoscope by Jennifer Angel
December 2017 – Planetary Overview
Mercury goes retrograde for the last time in 2017, which makes December a great month to research, plan, review and reset goals. The electric energy of Mars moves to sensual Scorpio, one of the signs it rules, and ignites a fire of passion. By the end of the month, the business thinking traditional sign of Capricorn will be bursting with celestial energy. On the 19th, Saturn, the sign of longevity, will move to Capricorn, one of the signs it rules, for a three-year stay and reminds us of our responsibilities. This year, the Sun will move to Capricorn on the 21st, and Venus on the 24th. The year closes with a Gemini Moon, a symbol of fun gaiety and openness of what’s to come, a perfect ending and beginning.
December is very much about your work, career and business; getting ends tied up to close off and start the new year afresh. You can change your attitude, direction or both, during this time as you gain greater awareness and insight as to what you really want to do. Your love life is full of passion and intimacy. Intimacy, in way of knowing someone on a deeper level. Your imagination is on fire, don’t hold back – think big and be bold!
Romance and passion are very much on your radar in December. Friendship is also important. In love, friendship is the ingredient that hold your relationship/s together. Socially, friends remind you of how lucky you are. There’s a possible new development with money. Be prepared to restructure your finances to make it work for you. A change of how you earn save and spend can ensure you start the new year off in a better place. Knowledge is power, be open to taking up new studies.
Moon energy in and opposite your sign can be intense. Mercury also in your opposite sign, and retrograde, can prompt you to rethink where you are where you want to be, with love, life and everything in between. Mars in your area of productivity places some urgency on your schedule. Be careful you don’t try to be all things to all people. Pace yourself and get organized. Spend quality, not quantity, time with others. There’s a new development with your love life, but before you do anything, make sure it’s want you want.
With your close relationships, stand up for what you want and who you are. But remember, not all battles are worth fighting – don’t get involved in a power struggle. Take the good with the bad and let bygones be bygones. Money matters are important and can combine with love, and in a way, that is beneficial for you long term. An intense family moment can provide a realization of how you really feel about a situation. A new health regime is beneficial. And your connections during December can open doors for you.
If there are people, things and situations in your life that are not working, this is the month to change it. With Mercury retrograde, it’s a perfect time to throw out the old and get ready to introduce the new. To move love to the next stage, be prepared to say how your feel. To meet someone new, be confident that you know who you are, what you want in a person and relationship, and then be prepared to make compromises; the perfect love recipe.
It is the holiday season so there’s no surprise that family will rate high in your life and star-chart this month. But, no matter how close you are to someone, be careful of telling them a few home truths; they may not appreciate your candor. For love, an intellectual connection with an easy fun banter, can lead to romance. A friend from the past can reenter your life now. And a creative project or idea can have good possibilities for increasing your bank balance.
A sudden development with your love life or someone close, can give you a reality wake up. To keep love alive, inject some passion into your relationship. To attract love, be yourself, the most confident and best version of you. A heart-to-heart discussion with someone can open the gate for a new start. Be honest about how you feel. A situation with family sets the scene for the future. A money opportunity can come out of the blue, but as Mercury is retrograde this month, don’t make any rash decisions.
As passion planet Mars, your co-ruler, moves to your sign, get ready for an exciting time with love, life and more. Money matters, investing, saving and spending are all hot on your agenda this month. Use this time to rethink how you’re managing your money. But don’t do anything hasty until after the 22nd when Mercury comes out of retrograde. Communication, education and creativity all feature strongly and will take you into the new year. Be prepared to do things differently to gain a different outcome.
Your annual new Moon indicates the start of a new phase. A positive restart that can set solid foundations for the future. What you do now, especially with money, can set you up nicely with security. Someone you work with can be beneficial in helping you. Mercury, in your sign, is retrograde for most of the month, making this the perfect time for reorganizing and reevaluating your thinking, attitude and direction. With work, be confident and stand in your circle of power. With love, an intense moment can build intimacy. And a family moment holds tenderness.
Your imagination is on fire. You are likely to have more ideas than time to fulfil them. The people you work with now can provide inspiration, knowledge and direction. And although you need solo time to think through your grand plan, working with others is the key to success and personal fulfillment. Your day planner is chocked full of activity, so get organized and work on priorities. Love is also in your chart, so it’s not all about work. And as Saturn, your rule, moves to your sign for a three-year stay, your life can change, in a positive and permanent way.
It may be the holiday season but with Mars in your career zone, you can expect to be busy. It’s more likely that you will have more to do than time to do it in, so don’t try and cater to everyone’s wishes. Friends, old new and acquaintances can come to the fore now. Some will bring a new start with them. There is likely to be a lot of discussion. However, as Mercury is retrograde, if you must approach a sensitive topic, do it diplomatically. When it’s about money, read the fine print.
If you recently started something new at work, or a new idea, then the Moon gives it a positive boost. And as Mercury is retrograde this month, it’s a great time to get plans in place. The people you meet and mix with now, socially and for work, can prove to be beneficial in some way. A monetary opportunity can come out of the blue. If so, be prepared to move quickly to capitalize on it. Family may need your attention, try to make time for them. In love, someone form the past can come back. You can make love more permanent. And a more solid connection with loved ones can be formed.
