Monthly Horoscope DECEMBER 2018 by Jennifer Angel
Excitement and unexpected developments – embrace what comes next!
Aries Your career is on an upswing! While the holidays are approaching, and others are beginning to wind down, you're still going full speed. There seems to be no rest for you, for now, because of your demanding work schedule. It’s important to stay alert so you don’t lose momentum. This is an exciting time; there is travel in in your stars. There's also the possibility of a love connection but keep an open mind and heart as love can come in a package you don’t expect. And as Venus and Pluto interact, a deep intimate connection that sweeps you off your feet is also possible. Family may need your attention, be sure to make time for them. And if in doubt about anything, trust your instincts.
Taurus Learning new skills are top priority now and as such, some people and situations may need to be rescheduled. But that's what life's all about; the balance of give and take. And with Mars now in your social area, you will be busy balancing your responsibilities and desires between work and the holiday festive season invitations, none of which you will want to miss out on. The people you meet socially during this time can present opportunities for your career, too, so put on your best party attire, as you just never know who you will meet. It's an exciting time, especially as you anticipate what could come next. To manage everything, you'll need to get organized.Your relationships will improve as you regain your mojo and confidence and feel safe to share your thoughts.
Gemini No matter what you are doing or whom you are doing it with, communication is an important component, especially with close relationships. And before you agree or disagree to anything, you will want to make certain that you are all on the same page. Never assume or presume anything. The Venus Uranus interaction can focus your attention on love and friendships. It is possible that you may need to change your schedule to fit in with someone’s plans, but it will be worth, especially as it is possible for a new love affair to begin during this time. A new start with money also looks positive, but be careful of being indulgent, you don’t want to go overboard with spending during the holidays.
Cancer In spite of being an action-filled month of festivities, it would be wise to schedule in some solo time to decide, in your heart and mind, the dreams you want to focus on to manifest. But in the process of planning and visualizing your desired life, you also want to let life unfold somewhat organically in the way the universe has planned for you. So, be careful of trying to control too much. Love is definitely in the air, too! With the full Moon in your sign later in the month, you have a chance to discard anything from your life. Whether it’s a thought, action or people that may be holding you back from attaining all you desire, let it go. Some of you may be ‘suddenly” travelling; have your bags close by for an urgent pack! Embrace what comes next.
Leo Your instincts are sharp now and as such, you can gain amazing realizations about your life, the people you share it with, and what changes you want to make moving forward. Your career can take off, so even though it is the festive season with lots of invitations pinging your email box, you don’t want to take your focus of your career. A Venus Uranus connection can open the door for a discussion to take place that can change your game plan in some way, especially if it’s about money, as it can be in a good way. Some of you will be packing your bags and travelling, but it’s not all fun, its business, too. New Moon energy brings an opportunity for a new start with love, or a chance to start afresh. Some of you will turn a romantic interlude into something more meaningful – enjoy!
Virgo Family comes first this month, and it is possible to patch up relationships with family and, especially with siblings. However, if you are called upon to solve a dilemma, try not to go into fix-it mode. Instead, offer emotional support and a friendly ear. Socializing and networking are both very much in the stars for you during this festive month and can end up being beneficial for you both in your personal and professional life. An unexpected development with money matters can have you smiling all the way to the bank. Be careful of whom you share your good news with - some things are best left alone. Love is passionate and intense and can test your connection with someone. For singles, the energy can put you right in the path of someone you have been waiting for, all your life.
Libra This month, you could receive some financial assistance from someone; it may not be a gift, but it could be the beginning of a boost to your bank account and just in time for the holidays. Be appreciative, as the act of Gratitude has the power to keep the manifestation door wide open! With planetary action between Venus and Uranus opposite each other and influencing your love life, you have a chance to gain further realizations with how you really feel about someone. You can also gain insights as to what direction you're moving and a chance to make a course adjustment, if that’s what you want. Remember, you have the power to make the choices that affect your life and to speak up. And although life does come with certain compromises, it is wise not to give up your control to anyone.
Scorpio The Venus Uranus interaction early in the month can focus your attention on work and your own needs, and if in doubt about anything or anyone, trust your instincts. You could also be the receiver of extra dollars in your pocket this month, especially during the first part of the month, but don't settle for less than you're worth. After all, you can't expect anybody else to look after your best interests; that's your own personal responsibility. With love, as Venus moves to your sign and with the influence of communication planet Mercury, whatever you say, be sure to be sincere and keep it genuine. But of course, plan to have fun, too, after all it is the festive season so you don’t want to get too serious about life.
Sagittarius Your solar chart is hot! Be alert to possibilities to capitalize on all that is happening and crossing your star-path. With money, build for the future, rather than for instant gratification. Be wary of dealing with friends, and family. You are independent and as such, you are well capable of making up your own mind on matters of importance. As Mercury and Jupiter connect in your sign, it’s an indication that good news heads your way – get ready to celebrate! And if life feels frenzied, don't worry, everything will turn out, exactly as it should, trust in the process. If it’s love you are looking for, it’s possible for a new relationship, one of substance, to begin now. With Jupiter in your sign, use this energy by dreaming big and not limiting yourself; you deserve the best!
Capricorn This is an amazing month! The new Moon on the 7th, in the sign before yours, heightens your instincts so you can focus on what you want your life to be. Once you are in touch with your soul purpose, you can visualize it and make it happen. The full Moon on the 22nd gives you clarity to know what is right for you with relationships. Be prepared to discard old thought patterns so you can invite new love to your life. Couples can let go of old emotional baggage and eliminate anything that isn't working. The combined Venus Uranus energy can present a positive opportunity at work but can also affect your home life. Just be aware that when you want to change your life, you need to step out of your comfort zone, which can be unsettling but also empowering.
Aquarius With action planet Mars now in the sign next to yours, your focus is on money, but be careful not to make any rash decisions. Think through your intended purchases to make sure they are right before you part with your cash, especially for gifts during the holiday season. And with the influence of the full Moon later in the month you’ll need to stick to a schedule. If you get organized, you will be able to accomplish everything on your to-do-list, especially as you’ll have more invitations and events to attend. Venus interacts with Uranus, your ruling planet, and prompts you to stay focused on your grand plan. Even though this is a busy time of year, it’s important to keep the big picture in view.
Pisces You can learn a great deal this month from the Venus Uranus interaction, especially when it concerns money or official business. During this time, friends and colleagues may drop out of your life for a while. Keep in mind, you are evolving and moving forward and not everyone will be able to follow or keep up. But the new people who enter your life now bring with them opportunities that can almost seem tailor made for you. As such, your career is about to get a boost from someone, and someone you probably already know. So, the more you can socialize and network over the holiday season, the more likely you are to connect with those who can help you move into a more prosperous future. Love can be strengthened by a deeper friendship, a union of true intimacy – be open to sharing more of yourself.
DECEMBER 2018, Monthly Planetary Overview by Jennifer Angel
Courageous Thought, Feeling and Action Puts You In Touch With Your Inner Heart Desires!
The close of November:
November 25th was the annual connection between the powerful Sun and abundant Jupiter. This was considered to be the luckiest day in the annual astral calendar, a day to focus on the positive and the end result you desire.
Communication planet Mercury was also in the spotlight! November 26th, Mercury and Mars interacted, and this connection cautioned you not to speak harshly or impulsively. However, additional planetary interaction provided the capacity to forgive and forget on 27th, as Mercury favorably connected with both the Sun and Jupiter.
The month closed with Venus and Uranus in opposition on the 30th, bringing your attention up close and personal with relationships and those you love and respect. This also provided an opportunity to let go and move on.
The beginning of December
With Venus entering Scorpio on the 2nd, and Mercury moving back to Scorpio in its retrograde transit the day before, the month begins with relationships being intense as well as verbal. At the same time, the Sun and Mars in a challenging aspect can add extra tension to any situation that demands your attention in a way that it is impossible to ignore. Say what you mean but be mindful that a little diplomacy can go a long way in softening what could be a sensitive issue.
Week one – December 03-09
Mercury comes out of its retrograde transit on the 6th, giving you the go ahead to put plans into action, sign official papers, or start something new. The very next day, on the 7th, the new Moon in Sagittarius provides a huge dose of optimism and faith that all is well in the world, exactly as it is. On the same day, Mars and Pisces will connect and this dynamic energy can heighten your instincts, your sexuality, your dreams, visualization, imagination and creativity. Use this energy to shine your personal star out to the universe to create whatever you want in life. Be idealistic, but keep it real, too. When your head is in the clouds, you also want to keep one foot on the ground.
Week two – December 10-16
On the 12th, Communication planet Mercury will depart the intense sign of Scorpio for the more fun seeking adventurous, and truth seeking, Sagittarius energy. If money is involved, beware of being too impulsive. You don’t want to leave yourself short for the holidays. Shortly after, the Sun and Moon will square on the 15th, which can have you battling with what you think you should do and what you want to do.
Week three – December 17-23 An exciting interaction between the Sun and Uranus on the 20th can provide the courage you need to be able to move out of your comfort zone and move a step (or two) towards your dream. Be bold, be courageous, and don’t let self-doubt enter your mind! The very next day, the Sun will make its way to Capricorn, the sign of ambition, and encourages you to get your goals, dreams and visions set for the upcoming New Year. And as Venus and Neptune interact, this beautiful inspiring energy helps you to get more in touch with your inner heart and soul.
Week four – December 24-30
During the festive season, on the 24th, Mercury and Neptune will square and challenge you to be concise with your communication to avoid mix-ups and misunderstandings. And as the Moon and Jupiter interacting in a favorable way on the 25th, with this aspect in the mix it promises any confusion to be short lived. The energy is now replaced with a great deal of joy and jolliness while interacting with others.
There is another Sun Moon square on December 29th, which will allow you to revisit any unfinished business and clear it before the year’s end. The year will close on the 31st with Mars entering Aries, the sign it rules, and this go-getter motivated, and highly optimistic energy will kick off the New Year in a positive and productive way.
Moving into January, all the placements and activity in the sign of Capricorn, as well as a solar eclipse, bring a new exciting start for 2019 where thought and feeling put into action can literally change your life.
