December 2018 Monthly Horoscopes – Summaries
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Aries: Doing out-of-the-ordinary things or changing routines up is attractive in December with an emphasis on the adventure sector of your solar chart, dear Aries. Even so, there is a considerable focus on healing, resting, and tying up loose ends as Mars, your ruler, is moving in the sign just behind yours up until the very last day of the month. Attention to your health is vital now. You’re also gaining the motivation and energy to handle a matter that has been on your mind for some time.
Extra rest is crucial this month, but refreshing activities are important, too. Certainly, with Mars moving into your sign on the 31st, you’ll be greeting the new year with vigor, and you have a lot to prepare for in advance. Learning your heart’s desire is important so that when you’re ready to pursue it next month, you’ll know which direction to head!
Learning new things and reaching beyond your normal bounds are in focus in December. Despite this, there is much going on behind the scenes and in your emotional world as you deal with loose ends. Some of you are inclined to take a time-out or period of repose and recuperation. It’s a time for considering what you want to take with you into the new year. Some spring cleaning in your psyche, perhaps? With Mercury retrograde until the 6th and Mars in your privacy sector, you’re more inclined to reflect than take action, and you require more rest and “down” time. Watch especially around December 2nd and 5-6 for taking premature action.
With Mars in this hidden area of your chart, you can be especially motivated to do something about a difficult situation or burden. Putting something behind you is best accomplished before the New Moon on the 7th. You’re reviewing the past and the sacrifices you are currently making. Your inner world is animated, often pulling you inward. You may be reconsidering different elements of your life and wondering where things are going, particularly love and creative matters. You’re more inclined than usual to look for help or guidance, likely of a more anonymous nature, such as through online groups, as the conventional sources for sharing may not be as straightforward or available. Your desires are more complex than usual, and when you do know what you want, you may not see an easy way to go after it! This can lead to creative solutions and detours, particularly around the 15-17 and 27-28.
From the 2nd and throughout the remainder of December, you’re in a great position to smooth over conflicts over money, debts, or other imbalances. It can be an excellent time to get a loan, if needed. The New Moon on the 7th stimulates your need for more spirited living and learning. From the 21st forward, more and more attention is given to your career, responsibilities, reputation, and long-term goals. This period brings the Sun to the top of your solar chart and can point to an achievement or an increased desire to perform and excel. It’s a more ambitious period of the year–a time when you’re especially goal-oriented–which you’ll carry with you into 2019. Mind you, it may only be after December 31st that you feel confident about taking action. Until then, you’re stepping back from your goals just a little to gain a new perspective. You might identify a pursuit that is better off put to rest.
Uranus is finishing up its long-term transit of your sign. This month, the 1st brings Jupiter and Uranus into creative aspect, and on the 20-21, the Sun’s support is with you. These reinforce your innovative, enterprising nature, and while the month doesn’t favor pushing forward, you’re in a fabulous position to come up with new ideas that you can put into action later. Lay the groundwork and do the research now. Issues that have left you on a fence or waiting for an answer since November are likely to clear up in December. Educational, legal, publishing, or travel matters may resume or delays lift after the 12th. The 20-21 is powerful for publishing and sharing your ideas with others.
The Full Moon on the 22nd is highly revealing and romantic. It’s a time for discovering your feelings on a matter and then redirecting your life in fundamental ways with this new knowledge in mind. Home life can need extra attention. It’s a beautiful time to understand your needs more clearly and to spend more time understanding the needs of those closest to you.
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Taurus:December is strong for the feeling that you’re getting back on track, dear Taurus, after some delays or lack of clarity. It may not be an “all systems go” period just yet, but obstacles are clearing. Where you may have felt stuck or in limbo in recent months, forward motion is likely this month. Relationships smooth over and deepen. It’s an excellent time for compromise, negotiations, harmony, and balance with Venus in your partnership sector virtually all month. Passion, intimacy, partnership, learning, friendship, and adventure make up the broader themes of December and are areas of increased focus and opportunity. Learning and exploring with a partner or good buddy can be very beneficial now. Sharing through your personal interests, studies, or travels can be fun and fulfilling.
This can be a lively time with friends, networks, and group associations with Mars in your social sector up until the last day of the month. This excitement can point to possible difficulties or tensions with these connections and is more likely from the 1-2, 5-6, and 24th. However, for the most part, a busy and fulfilling social calendar is expected. A long-distance friendship can be in focus.
For the more homebody Tauruses, this energy is more about gaining inspiration and motivation to pursue your dreams than connecting with others, and it’s just as exciting. All month, you are excited to turn over a new leaf, enthused about new ideas, and ready to put plans into motion, and it’s best to do so after the 7th. Before that date, you may feel prepared but there can be missing details.
You’re in perfect shape for personal influence, connecting with friends, working towards a cherished cause, and putting your talents to good use on the 8-9, 15-17, and 27-29. Changes you’re making now can be defining. Mars moving through your sector of dreams and wishes and in harmony with your sign helps to fuel you with the energy and confidence to pursue new experiences.
A careful review of your financials, commitments, shared resources, or partnerships is appropriate until the 12th. For some, a past relationship can come up for review or consideration. It may be better to wait on making big decisions, both financially and emotionally, until you see things more clearly. Avoid jumping into something too quickly especially around the 5-6 when all signs point to confusion. Certain roadblocks and delays lift after the 6th, and matters related to your intimate life or finances, education, travel, or publishing or legal issues tend to move forward as the month advances.
The 20-21 is excellent for freeing yourself from a burden and for personal appeal or the support of friends. The Sun moves into harmony with your sign and into your adventure sector on the 21st, launching a month-long cycle in which you’re feeling more spirited, vibrant, and connected to your dreams and goals. The Full Moon on the 22nd opens your eyes to the need to express yourself more fully, and this can color much of what you do in the last week of the year. Some of you could be rushing to meet a deadline or news comes in that moves things forward. It may be a hectic time, but it’s also a period of discovering feelings that have been building or that you’ve avoided and kept at bay, and then embracing them. Now that you know what’s in your heart, you’re ready to make better decisions. You’ll feel inspired and confident on the 27-28. Even so, Mars heads into your privacy sector on the 31st, and you end the year with a greater need to rest your body and review your strategies.
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Gemini: There is a special focus on both relationships and ambitions this month, dear Gemini. Where there were feelings of being in limbo, confusion, or delays in recent weeks (and even months), you’ll enjoy forward movement, corrected courses, and clarifications in December. For you, areas most affected by slowdowns have been relationships, work, routines, and health. Clarity comes to these areas of life this month, as well as some second chances to work things out. December eases you forward, and January is set to excite and encourage you further.
December features some very supportive influences for your practical affairs and partnerships. Mars brings extra muscle and motivation to your career, image, status, and responsibilities up until the last day of the month (and the year 2018!). You are more ambitious than usual and focused on accomplishing something important to you. You’re not in any mood to be told what to do, preferring to lead the way yourself or to set your own pace. You’re enterprising and innovative. Your ruler, Mercury, turns direct on the 6th.
With much going on in your solar eighth house this year, there is usually a lot going on under the hood with your intimate life and/or with money matters and support. December is no exception. The chances of smoothing over a disagreement or attracting the support you need are high.
Relationships and negotiations are in focus for you with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter moving through your opposite sign. You’re working on making your connections stronger and happier, and you have cosmic support for this task. Even with some backtracking, you’re coming out ahead. In the first week of the month, you can experience some tension as your career or long-term goals may seem to clash with a partner or your relationship goals. This kind of strain is ongoing although on-and-off for you, but with Mars in your career section all month, these theme is aggravated in spots in December. Clearing the air may be necessary.
With Mars at the top of your solar chart, you can be especially dynamic and creative with business, career, and life plans this month. Your work is taking a more creative direction in general, but this month you are revving up in this regard, readier than usual to put your plans into motion or to push things along. It certainly helps that you have boosted charisma at work with Venus moving through your work and health sector all month. Your ambitions are certainly stimulated, and you can be in the position of being in charge and at the lead of things.
While much of your December astrology points to improving partnerships and a focus on companionship, this seemingly contradictory Mars trend is an independent one, and it’s about career, life path matters, and your relationship with people in authority. Ambition and the desire for recognition of your performance can be stimulated for many of you, and for others, there can be a sudden surge of motivation and energy for coming up with a workable, results-oriented life plan. You may want to go it alone on some level – to take the initiative and the lead. Follow your ambitions, but be as considerate as possible to those around you, particularly around the 1-2 and 5-6. Avoid pushing yourself to the point of burn out. Be innovative but patient as well for best results. You’ll find opportunities to advance your goals are with you most strongly around the 15-17 and 27-29.
Virtually all month (from the 2nd forward), smoothing over problem areas at work or with your daily routines comes naturally and easily. There may be social or love opportunities emerging as you pursue your work or health goals.
Combining your resources with a trusted someone can work to your benefit. The New Moon on the 7th brings new energy for forming a partnership or improving one. It’s also strong for seeing yourself through others’ eyes, taking steps to strengthen your connections with others, and finding ways to bring more balance and harmony to your life in general. From the 12th forward (and particularly around the 20-21) is a perhaps an even stronger period for attracting helpful people into your life. Energetically, it may not be the most potent time for personal plans, but focusing on connecting well with others can give your life a real boost.
A significant other can help give you perspective this month and shared plans and ideas can improve your bond. The 12th forward is excellent for conversations with a partner, advisor, or counselor. Others can be your sounding board. Listen when people compliment you or recognize your talents and potential, as the feedback can be precious to you now.
The Full Moon on the 22nd can open your eyes to the need (or desire) to manage your resources. These newly awakened feelings may color most of your choices in the final week of the month. You might gain a new understanding of where you’d like to go. How to deal with a money matter or predicament surrounding personal possessions or an intimate relationship can become more evident. You recognize the need to take better care of yourself and your resources at this time, and it’s a good move! You’re likely to have a moment of great clarity that helps you to establish your priorities.
Cancer Monthly Horoscope Summary for December 2018: The month ahead is powerful for taking care of business, improvements to work and health, and for enjoying and expressing yourself, dear Cancer. You move beyond the blocks and delays of recent weeks (even months) and enjoy special attention, relationships, and improved routines in December. Problems straighten out and answers or news you’ve been waiting for arrive, helping clear the path for better decisions and forward motion as the year comes to a close. Conversations or situations that left you stumped in November can start to make sense this month. Projects or endeavors related to work or health that stalled now pick up again. Some ideas may be scrapped while others pick up the pace.
Mars is a guest in your sector of spirit and adventure up until the last day of the month/year, fueling your energy and motivating you to reach beyond your normal limits. Certainly, your work and daily affairs can be exhausting at times, and there is a stronger and necessary focus on these things, but you’re also finding the time to pursue other interests and activities that help nourish your soul and inspire you to reach higher. You have more courage to try new things, and you’re strongly motivated to learn, grow, improve, share, and connect. This can be a time for discovering a new passion or interest, or you could be rekindling an exciting project or study. Either way, you’re enthusiastic.
Due to Mercury’s recent retrograde in your work and health sector and current retrograde in your pleasure zone until the 6th, slowing down in the first week of the month makes sense. Look at past projects for ideas and inspiration and focus on editing and improving. After this date, and especially beyond the 12th, you’re in an excellent position to get work done and focus on health goals. Conversations or initiatives that stalled in November can regain momentum as blocks clear and delays or restrictions lift this month. The 20-21 is particularly strong for conversations and further thoughts and insights into health and wellness or work and chores. Look for opportunities to grow and expand your skills, a business, or project and improve your self-care programs.
Your romantic or creative life is brighter and happier, and you get special help from Venus who spends virtually all of December in harmony with your sign, boosting your appeal and personal confidence, and perhaps winning you some admirers, too.
Mars is encouraging you to broaden your horizons this month. Restlessness can sometimes pull you away and distract you, especially on the 1-2 and 5-6, but overall you’re in a good position to balance your focus on routine and responsibility with your attention to discovery and exploration. Listen to your intuition on the 7th when ideas for the future can be golden. You may not know all the details just yet, but that’s just fine–with the New Moon in Sagittarius and Mars aligned with Neptune, it’s more about the vision now. Mid-month can be excellent for making changes in your relationships or breaking out of worn-out relating patterns. You may get a chance to take a connection or project to a new level.
The Full Moon in your sign on the 22nd holds the promise of a “big reveal” or an awakening to your true feelings on a matter. You are likely to come to a personal epiphany as you recognize feelings that you may have buried due to busy-ness or distraction. This lunation puts you in the spotlight – you are in demand! Knowing your heart is empowering, even if you don’t yet have a plan set in stone for going after what you want, and it’s a beautiful way to close out the year.
December 2018 Leo Monthly Horoscope Summary: December should bring a subtle sense that you’re moving forward, dear Leo. January will also find you very much in your element. This comes as a breath of fresh air after a feeling of being in limbo or delayed in recent weeks. December is a month of increased clarity in your home life or with living conditions and arrangements, as well as forward movement in your romantic life. There is a strong focus on both work and play this month, and this is a nice change with work a strong force in your life, sometimes to an excessive level. Recreation, romance, creativity, hobbies, and children can be sources of increased pride, and involvement in these areas of life rises now.
While there is continued focus on health, wellness, work, and daily routines, your intimate life heats up this month as Mars travels through your solar eighth house up until the last day of the month/year. A satisfying work-life balance is entirely possible now as you pay your work and personal life their due attention. Even so, at times this month, you may feel a little divided between keeping things light and fun or going in deep.
Mars has been moving through your sector of intimacy and shared resources since mid-November, stirring things up. With Venus moving into your solar fourth house on December 2nd, you’re in a better position to straighten things out and resolve conflicts related to money, support, and power dynamics. The 1-2, 5-6, and 24th can pull up frustrations getting what you want and possible confusion in a relationship. Watch that you don’t push something too hard or become your own worst enemy on the 1-2 and 5-6 when your desires seem to clash with your current plans. Competitive or frustrating elements in your relationships may also surface now. Your better days for resolving problems are the 15-17, 20-21, and 27-29.
Mars in your zone of transformation and intimacy can animate close relationships, and it can also inspire you to take action on securing financial support. With continued emphasis on your work and health sector, this transit can also push you to make profound, lasting lifestyle changes, perhaps through quitting a bad habit, especially around the 15-16. Unhealthy dependencies need to go! Mars here can intensify your emotions and turn your attention to the hidden or deep elements of your life. It’s an important process that shouldn’t be rushed or undervalued, but it does seem to keep you working behind the scenes. You might seek out support for a project or clinch a deal now.
Venus moving through your home and family sector virtually all month softens any rough edges around the home. Even so, the month can begin a little sluggishly in this regard with Mercury recently retrograde in your romance and creativity sector and heading back into your sector of home and family, turning your attention to a household or family matter that you previously thought to be resolved. Delayed initiatives can reawaken after the 6th. News can arrive that moves you forward, or you finally get a chance to put a project into motion.
The 21st intensifies the work and health theme. You’ll be focusing on building skills, improving your daily routines, and ditching bad habits. This theme develops more fully in January. Even so, shortly into this work-focused cycle, a Full Moon occurs (on the 22nd), reminding you to pay special attention to rest and spiritual nourishment. If you’ve been overworking or forgetting to attend to your emotional health, this lunation will encourage you to slow down and balance things out. You’ll enjoy opportunities to recognize any feelings you’ve kept at bay or otherwise suppressed, clarifying your vision as you close out the year. Mars moves into harmony with your sign on the very last day of the year, energizing you as you greet the new year.
December 2018 Virgo Monthly Horoscope Summary: A special focus on your home, family, or personal life is in store in the month ahead, dear Virgo, with considerable attention to relationships or partnerships and personal interests as well. Where there were delays or periods of limbo in recent weeks, blocks lift in December after the first week. Slowdowns for you primarily revolved around communications, transportation, house and home, love, and money, and they’re clearing as the month advances.
Home life requires more of your attention than usual, and can involve some problems that need resolving. Mars travels through your partnership sector up until the final day of the month/year, animating close relationships. Others have something to show you about what you may have been avoiding or ignoring within yourself. Mars is assertive but sometimes pushy and without tact, and retrograde Mercury until the 6th can be misunderstood. As well, Mars forms a tense square to the Sun in the first few days of December. As such, it will be important to consciously soften your approach with others, unless you feel the need to make a point or take a stand.
Otherwise, this transit can lead to clearer and improved relations. Mars brings relationships and interactions with others to life in December, while charming Venus spends most of the month in your communications sector, supporting pleasant communications. It’s a time for making connections, meeting people, and becoming more active with friends, partners, and lovers.
Mind you, with Mars in this area of your chart, it is directly opposite your sign, and this can sometimes feel weighty. You might be on edge more readily than usual and should fight a tendency to be defensive with others. Others seem to be a little more demanding of your energy and time. Relationship imbalances can become very obvious now, demanding resolutions to problems. This Mars transit can serve to stir up passions, not always comfortably. A relationship or partner could be reflecting your own desire for action.
Generally speaking though, you are coming across well in your communications and getting along well with siblings, acquaintances, fellow students, or even neighbors with Venus in your communications sector. Mechanical problems or delayed projects can dampen spirits a little in the first week of the month, but after the 6th, you’re likely to see some blocks clear and delays lift. An interrupted conversation might resume, and further information comes in that aids decision-making.
The Full Moon on the 22nd opens your heart to the need for true friendship. Unrecognized feelings can emerge now, and it’s time to embrace or process them. These emotions may be about someone or can serve to rekindle an interest in a project that you haven’t yet fully pursued. It’s a good time for mingling as others can open up doors for you at this time and through the final week of the calendar year. You can feel inspired to do your best or to pursue a dream upon the encouragement of a friend.
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Libra: December features improved communications, special interests, and increased motivation to handle work and self-care programs, dear Libra. Most of the recent slowdowns or confusing moments in your life can be put behind you this month, as December brings you a slow but steady forward pace. Clarifications and advances related to finances, business, studies, communications, and transportation figure strongly now. These things improve, flow naturally, and pick up momentum as the month advances. Ideally, you’ve come into touch with what and who you value, and you’re now ready to apply what you’ve learned. As a result, you’re choosing your projects more mindfully. You’re also likely to enjoy the fruits of your labor more fully!
There are both challenges and rewards to your studies, communications, and connections now, and you can find yourself more communicative. In the first week of the month, you may be waiting for information or a go-ahead, or mechanical errors may seem to delay your progress. From the 6th, you can enjoy forward movement on your projects and initiatives and delays lifting. You feel more “in the loop” from this date on, and in a happier mental space particularly after the 12th. This can be a big idea month, and it’s quite excellent for reaching out to others, although there can be times when you feel you have too much on your plate and you can be a little scattered as a result. Dealing with errands and short trips may be more frequent, but can also lead to some nice opportunities.
The 15-17 and 27-29 are some of the better dates for work and health endeavors. All month, however, you’re feeling especially motivated to tackle projects that get you ahead in these areas. Mars in your solar sixth house revs you up and motivates you to take care of business. You’re challenging yourself to do better. You’re bringing more muscle to your health and wellness or self-care programs, getting back into action or stepping up the pace. Your desire to initiate, lead, and work independently can stir up competition or conflict with others at times, and this is more likely on the 1-2 and 5-6 when you may want to tone things down or prepare yourself for a battle, depending on which you prefer at the moment! Otherwise, you’re motivated and self-starting, and this feels good. It’s a time for pushing yourself to improve your health and fitness while being mindful that you don’t overdo it. Or, you can be feeling quite pumped about getting organized. Difficulties with workload or excessive demands on you can now be acknowledged. Avoid overstrain and enjoy yourself as you get your life back into shape.
The 21st brings the Sun into your sector of home and family where Saturn and Pluto are already long-term guests, and this stimulates your domestic side further. As exciting as your projects and interactions have been in the past weeks, you’re beginning to crave more downtime and the comfort of familiar settings. Seeking a balance is helpful now, and the Full Moon just a day later helps you do just that. This lunation pulls your attention to a career or public matter, or a responsibility for which you’re accountable. It’s an excellent time for attracting attention for positive efforts or a good deed. Otherwise, this Full Moon can reveal to you how vital meeting your responsibilities and thriving in the work you do or performing at your peak is to the rest of your life. You need to feel good about your performance so that other projects and endeavors to thrive, as well as to feel more comfortable in your personal life.
The third week of the month is also strong for handling a relationship matter so that you can move forward. On the last day of the month/year, Mars moves into your partnership sector, animating your partnerships and highlighting relationship needs.
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary: December brings Venus back into your sign, dear Scorpio, as well as forward movement to your finances or practical affairs. Mars is working in harmony with your sign, too, and this can help clear obstacles. Although Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio until the 6th, after this date you enjoy more clarity. It’s true that you may be journeying along already-traveled ground until the middle of the month in some areas of your life, you nevertheless feel that you are getting a second chance to get things right, and this is comforting.
People want to be around you with Venus in your sign virtually all month. They like and seek out your company. From the 6th forward, Mercury is direct in your sign, reinforcing a sense that key areas of your life are no longer stuck or, at the very least, turning the corner. You’re sure to feel freer, more outgoing and confident, and less confined. Recent dilemmas suddenly seem less complicated, and you’re more interested in enjoying the moment than looking to the past for answers or for happiness.
With Mars in your sector of fun, creativity, and romance until the last day of the month/year, you’re in strong touch with your passions in December. This transit combined with Mercury retrograde in your sign until the 6th, however, can point to some misunderstandings, and there can be times when you come across as insensitive or self-centered. Otherwise, you’re expressing yourself confidently, and you’re likely to crave special attention, fun and games, romance, or hobbies and recreation. This is a fabulous time for pouring energies into a passion project or heartfelt pursuits, and a romance or getaway for some of you. Romantic relationships may be animated, or your feelings for someone fire up. Especially around the 7th, you are inspired to create and share, perhaps as a result of these inflamed emotions. You enjoy more courage to chase your heart’s desire. Channeling excess energy into exercise, dance, music, and art that involves movement can be especially satisfying.
Personal attraction and positive attention are on your side this month. You look good, and you’re framed in a good light. There are important connections to make with people who can help you to move your plans forward, particularly around the 15-17.
The Full Moon on the 22nd is strong for learning, publishing, and announcements, although you may want to wait a few days before acting on new information that emerges now. Full Moons are about acknowledging and embracing your feelings, not always about acting upon them immediately. Waiting until you’ve processed your discoveries is wise now.
Self-empowerment is an important theme in December. Becoming less dependent on others, not only or necessarily financially but emotionally, is a focus, and it works well for you.
Avoid impulsive decisions in the first week of the month. From the 6th, you’ll be more decisive as new or previously delayed information emerges and blocks on your projects or endeavors lift. The final week of the year can feature the building up of your faith and a recognition of your need for spirit-refreshing experiences. The 27-28 is particularly strong for personal appeal, romance, and creative expression.
Sagittarius Monthly Horoscope for December 2018: This is a more visible and personally powerful time for you, dear Sagittarius, and your impact is stronger than usual. Even so, in the first twelve days of December, you’re still keeping some things to yourself, as you should, and putting some decisions on hold. You find your voice by the 12th, when you have a whole lot more to say and share with others! It may not be until January that you’re fully confident and especially creative when Venus and Mars will be in your favor. Even so, this is a good time for laying the groundwork.
Pressures on the home front can be strong this month. December is a period of increased personal power, even though you begin the month looking back before moving forward. Reassessing projects and plans is critical now. The New Moon on the 7th is in your sign and gives you a nice boost, and Mercury’s move into your sign on the 12th motivates you further. This is a time for recreating your image, starting anew in a significant area of your life, and turning over a new leaf. Mercury is retrograde until the 6th, but this doesn’t mean you can’t work on plans for self-improvement in the meantime. By mid-month, you are more decisive and confident about what you want and need, and by next month, others are feeling this about you, too. Personal goals are supported now, although you may do some battle with domestic problems, confidence issues, or obstacles until January.
Despite ups and downs, you can enjoy excellent opportunities for improving your home life. You do need to watch for being pushy or hasty in your private life. Aim to draw upon the initiative and energy of Mars in your home and family sector until the 31st to get things done! This is a time for actively working through problem areas and improving family relationships.
While Venus spends almost the entire month in your privacy sector, it’s moving direct all month, and there is a sense of forward movement nonetheless. This is an incubation stage of sorts with your love life and affections – there are things to process and perhaps some healing to do before you’re clear. However, if this was agonizing at times in October and November, it’s a much smoother process in December. Venus will enter your sign on January 7th, and you’ll be raring to go, but for now, laying low makes sense. Sorting things out will serve you kindly. In fact, you may need to deemphasize your love life to take advantage of other opportunities in your life now.
Pay special attention to serendipities in December that relate to love, health, and friendship. You’ll be tuned into levels that you may normally miss, and hunches can be mighty compelling now.
Mars charges through your home and family sector all month, and you’re likely to get in touch with buried resentments that can frustrate you enough to make changes. You get the chance to work on or in the home. You may be defending, rallying for, or motivating family now. Your home life or inner life can be animated, colorful, and busy.
The New Moon on the 7th is all about you and presenting a new look, image, or more authentic version of “you” to others. Yes, you’re still reflecting and considering your next step, but you have more power than usual to take charge and to make an impact in the days after this lunation. This is a time for a new beginning of sorts. It’s likely to cause a few ripples on the home front or with family, but it’s also a good time for making decisions to leave a bad situation behind you. For the first three weeks of the year, you have personal presence and power, but you can be rather hard to get in touch with on many planes. Whether this translates as being a little hard to get, withdrawn, or aloof, it’s a time for looking behind you in order that you can better see your next step forward.
On and in the days surrounding the Full Moon on the 22nd, there can be new information about finances or a reveal of intimate feelings that rocks your world a little, nudging you in a new direction. You come in touch with your feelings, but what to do with them may not be entirely straightforward. Don’t put pressure on yourself – let things unfold. Pay attention if you get the sense that you’re not quite ready for a plan to come together yet, and take more time if it feels right to do so.
December 2018 Monthly Horoscope for Capricorn:While you’re in your yearly period of repose and winding down in December, dear Capricorn, there is a strong emphasis on the world of communications, your daily life, learning, and connecting. This can be a big idea month, and it’s quite excellent for reaching out to others, although part of you wants nothing more than to withdraw and replenish your energy! Dealing with errands and short trips may be frequent, and a balance should be sought.
Mars is working in harmony with your sign all of December, reinvigorating your motivation to pursue personal interests and studies and to enjoy more movement and interaction with your neighborhood. It’s an excellent time to make mental AND social connections. Your communications, teachings, studies, ideas, and writing may be a little hasty at times, and there can be times when you feel mentally wired. However, you enjoy greater passion and motivation to get things done and to learn or produce. You may not often sit still, and you’re inclined to want to initiate independent work and projects. You learn best when you are teaching yourself or engaged in self-study until December 31st. Watch carefully for alienating others through harsh words, or speaking prematurely of matters that are better left alone for the time being, especially around the 1-2 and 5-6 when impulsiveness can be a problem.
From the 21st forward, the Sun illuminates your sign, bringing you into the personal spotlight. People are noticing you and wanting to be around you. This is a time for shining on a personal level, so take advantage. Venus spends most of the month in your social sector, supporting you and blessing your friendships and relationships with networks or associates.
The last week of the month is influenced by a Full Moon that occurs in your partnership sector on the 22nd. Feelings are awakened and insistent. This can be a time for connecting with a significant other in wonderful ways or for awakening to emotions about a relationship.
Days to watch include the 5-6, when you should avoid talking about or releasing something too soon. You could feel rushed or under pressure, but it’s best to wait. A lot is going on at this time – the Sun is square Neptune, Mercury is stationing, and it’s a Balsamic Moon. All signs point to winding down rather than pushing forward with new initiatives. It’s quite fine, though, for tying up loose ends. If you want to let go of something more easily than you might at another time, this is a great time to do so.
There is wonderful energy with you from the 15-16 in particular as Saturn and Pluto in your sign harmonize with planets in your social and communications sectors. It can be a fabulous couple of days for relationships and projects. You’re determined, confident, positive, and can readily gain support or, more simply, understanding. The 20-22 is excellent for big reveals, whether they’re secrets or epiphanies, that serve to enlighten and motivate you to start fresh.
