Aries: The first half of this month is all about broadening your mind, questioning what you know, then questioning what you know again. That’s because Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, will enter Sagittarius; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity on December 1st – sparking your thirst for truth, knowledge, and adventure. A few days later, (December 3rd) Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius, which asks you to retrace your steps, picking up any clues or information you may have missed to assist you on your journey. Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Gemini that landed in your zone of ideas and communication may have shown you what kind of self-limiting thinking and perceptions you need to leave behind. Overall, what is your truth, Aries? The stars this month will be helping you to find it. By the 9th, Mars – your ruling planet – moves into the deep waters of Scorpio; your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. With Mars at home in this zone, motivating you to face your fears and go after your deepest desires, expect to be driven by your passion and gut instincts. In other words, if you don’t feel it 100% - don’t even bother.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Sagittarius gives you the fire in your belly to pursue some of your biggest dreams. However, with this moon coming in close to Saturn in Sagittarius, you’re going to have to put in the dedication and commitment to see those dreams through. No leaving what you start unfinished. Speaking of Saturn, the planet of responsibility and hard work finally leaves Sagittarius on December 19th and moves home to Capricorn for a two-and-a-half-year stay in your zone of career and achievement. It’s time to boss up, Aries, and Saturn in Capricorn will be bringing you lessons in determination, pragmatism, and leadership; all the while helping you to rise up through the ranks and achieve your own version of world domination. A few days later (December 21st) the Sun moves into Capricorn, bringing the spotlight to your long-term goals and ambitions. Get ready to put in the work.

Taurus: As you gear up for the new year, much of December will be about doing a deep clean of sorts.

With Mercury spinning backwards in this zone, you’ll be asked to go back and look at the relationships in your life where you’ve given too much of your power away, so you can reclaim it. With Mercury moving so close to Saturn, the planet associated with boundaries, reclaiming your power will include setting yours. At the same time, the Full Moon that landed in your zone of income and self-worth ( also on December 3rd), you may have had an a-ha moment around where you may be selling yourself short, especially where it pertains to your friendships and pursuing your hopes and wishes. With Venus (beauty, pleasure, appreciation) in Sagittarius since December 1st, ramping up your cravings for the things that resonate with you most, this is not the month to allow yourself to continue settling for any old thing that’s thrown your way.

On the 9th, motivating Mars moves home to Scorpio and into your zone of partnerships. Between Mercury retrograde and Mars in Scorpio, you might find your patience thinning when it comes to dealing with the same old issues in your relationships. Keep this in mind as you go, Taurus.

You could improve your sense of stability, deepen the bond you have with a lover, or attract a soulful and supportive relationship. However, Saturn will ask that you cut the bullshit when it comes to your heart.

An old issue could come up for discussion between you and your partner or an ex-lover could pop back into the picture. Either way, it’s important that you pay attention to the facts first, and to try not to let the demands or expectations of others cloud your judgement. This also goes for agreements and contracts. You may have already experienced a taste of this at the December 3rd Full Moon in Gemini, which landed in your zone of self-image and confidence and may have given you an a-ha moment around the ways you may be trying to be everything to everyone.

Another reason is Mercury’s retrograde in Sagittarius (December 3rd), which will ask that you go back and revisit creative projects or endeavors that you may have let fall by the wayside.

Whatever skills you lack or want to improve, Saturn will push you to make yourself more marketable through study or training. When the Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the spotlight shines on your connections to others. How can you maximize your connections on and offline in way that can help you to get your story, message, or ideas across to a wider audience? Hint: it’s time to get out and socialize.

Sagittarius: Your birthday season is well under way, though before you embark on this new chapter in your life, there’s some unfinished business that you need to take care of before you move full steam ahead, especially as the calendar new year approaches. That’s because Mercury, the planet of communication, goes retrograde on December 3rd in your zone of self-image and confidence. As such, your job will be to reflect on where you’ve been thus far and where you see yourself heading.

As a matter of fact, with the ton of planets still camped out in Sagittarius – your zone of rest, healing and retreat; your job for the first few weeks will be working on releasing the emotional junk you’ve accumulated over the last year (and perhaps a bit longer than that, since heavy Saturn has been in this zone for the last two and a half years). Consider December your time for replenishing your spirit, cleansing the toxic energy in your life, and releasing your attachment to the past. With pleasure loving Venus in Sagittarius and in this zone since December 1st, know that this work doesn’t necessarily have to be tough.

Under Saturn’s keep over the next two and a half years, you could become a true force to be reckoned with as the planet of hard work and responsibility pushes you to come into your own, helping you to build your confidence, a better body, and a healthier self-image.  On the 21st, the Sun moves into your sign which should feel like a rebirth, pushing you to greet the new year with excitement and a fresh approach. When Venus joins your birthday party on the 25th, you’ll be hard to resist, so don’t deprive yourself of the attention, or the craving to revamp or update your look. It’s time to level up. Let’s go!

Aquarius: This month is all about maximizing the connections that you have both on and offline. One reason for this is because Venus, the planet of relationships, moved into Sagittarius; your zone of friendship and future plans on December 1st, followed by Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3rd. With Venus’ help, your goal is to socialize and connect with people that not only share your interests and your vision but may also have the influence or clout to open doors for you and connect you with new opportunities. Now that Mercury is spinning backwards here, this may mean reconnecting with people from your past or rethinking some of your friendships, especially if they haven’t really led to positive growth in your life. This may have been a bit of a theme for you around the December 3rd Full Moon in Gemini, which landed in your zone of self-expression.

Some of those lessons may include the importance of keeping the faith, having a regular spiritual practice, and facing your fears head on. When the Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, get ready to have a light shone on those more tender pieces of your that need attention and maintenance. Consider this your time to heal and regroup. On the 25th, Venus moves into Capricorn, inviting you to ramp up your self-care and pleasure. Beauty heals.

Pisces: Your goals and career continue to be a focus for you as this month opens, thanks to Venus moving into Sagittarius, your zone of fame and achievement on December 1st, followed by Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3rd. Under this cosmic combination, your job will be to make sure you feel a sense of fulfillment with what you do. At the same time, Mercury will have you working to make sure that how you see yourself and how you want others to see you are one in the same. This may mean being more authentic with how you present yourself to world around you. With Venus in the mix, people will find it hard not to love you, so it only makes sense to give them the best version of you (not the perfect version). When the Full Moon in Gemini landed in your zone of home and family on December 3rd, you may have received a reminder on the importance of being true to yourself over going above and beyond to make others happy. On the 9th, passionate Mars moves home to Scorpio; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. As a result, you should find yourself craving new experiences that broaden and stimulate your mind and fill up your soul. Taking a trip or a class over the next few weeks could be inspiring.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Sagittarius teams up with hard working Saturn to help you with manifesting a promising job offer, promotion, or project that thrusts you into the spotlight. This moon is an auspicious one too as Saturn won’t be back in this zone of your chart for another 30 years. Consider this moon to be a reward of sorts for all the hard work you’ve been putting in for the last two and a half years. Meanwhile, on the 19th, Saturn moves into Capricorn – your zone of friendship and future plans; focusing your energy on setting healthier boundaries, maximizing your friendships, fulfilling your hopes and wishes, and capitalizing on the professional reputation you’ve built. When the Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, followed by Venus on the 25th, it’s time to bring out the social butterfly in you. Networking and connecting with others could be a source of fun and opportunity. Since this zone of your chart is also connected to philanthropy and giving back, getting involved with a worthwhile cause or event could be rewarding.
