Your December Horoscope Is Crying Out For You To Let Go—Or Be Dragged
Mercury is retrograde RN, making the start of the month a perfect time to review what you’ve accomplished this year.
2018 is almost over, and the astrology of December is a lot like the astrology of 2018 has been: a mixed bag.
Mercury will remain retrograde until the 6th, making the start of the month an excellent time to review 2018 and what you’ve accomplished. On the 6th there is an idealistic New Moon in Sagittarius that will help you to make use of the insights you’ve gained. By the most emo Full Moon of the year happens in Cancer on the 22nd, you’ll find that it’s time to let go or get dragged.
Happily, Mars moves into get-‘er-done Aries on the 31st, just in time for you to activate powerful New Year Resolutions.
March 21-April 19
Your goals are important, but what you do is not the only measure of your worth, dearest Aries. Prioritize managing your ego, your anxieties, and relationships this month. How you relate to self-care directly impacts your connections with loved ones, which directly impacts how you feel about yourself. Be on the lookout for big feels around December 22 with the full moon. It’s time to know what matters to your sense of self-worth, versus your impulse to keep up with the Jones’.
April 20-May 20
If you are willing to honor your needs, by—in part—clearly communicating them to others, you will succeed in deepening both your relationships and your self-esteem, this month. Things are likely to be a bit confusing for you, especially after December 5, so here’s a pro tip to help you through: stop looking outside of yourself for answers. There is no “right way” or “wrong way.” There’s only action and consequence, Taurus.
May 21-June 21
The new moon in your relationship house on December 6 is a chance for you to breathe new energy into your connections, to gain valuable new insight into them, or even to meet someone new. Just remember that all that glitters is not gold, Twin Star. If you make assumptions about people, even generous ones, they’re just as likely to be wrong as they are to be right. Be patient and remember that trust needs to be earned, my love.
June 22-July 22
There’s but one time of year when the moon is full in your sign, and in 2018 it’s on December 22. This marks a powerful time for letting go, Moonchild. You’ve been working hard all year long and been dancing with some old demons, and this is a fortuitous moment for you to let go of what’s no longer serving you so that you can move on. Be the change that you want to see in your life.
July 23-Aug. 22
Growth requires risk, there’s no way around it. It’s time for you to take a step back and allow things to play out a bit, Leo. You may have overextended yourself and you can’t do your best when you’re running ragged. Don’t be so wrapped up in trying to control the events of your life that you miss out on the opportunities that would emerge organically, if you’d just allow them to unfold this month.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your ruling planet, Mercury, finally goes direct on December 6, just in time for a fuzzy and emo new moon. Set intentions, but hold off on making firm plans for a little while, Virgo. This month it’s wise to pair your feels with information so that you can make a well-balanced determination. It may be time for you to make a really big change; improve your life in ways that feed your heart, and don’t just look good on paper.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
This isn’t the time to play small, Libra. You’ve been working hard on yourself and December will yield opportunities to embody the changes you’ve been making—or to fall back on old habits. The choice is yours, even if it doesn’t always feel like it. Expect the full moon on Dec. 22 to bring some major developments to a head; get clear about what you need and what you’re willing to do about it, my love.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
It’s the end of the year, and time to update your attitudes to better reflect what you’ve learned and how you wanna be. Concentrate on your values in the first half of the month; what you care about—in a core way—should be reflected in each of your choices. It’s all too easy to fall back on old habits and beliefs when you’re tired, scared, or defensive, but it really doesn’t serve you, Scorpio.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
It’s not always easy to be a Sagittarius. Your sense of possibility is endless, and this can lead to some seriously restless FOMO. This isn’t the time to find security; it’s the time to create happiness. Instead of obsessing on what other people think of you, prioritize getting real about what you think of yourself. Don’t go chasing your tail by focusing on the wrong things when you can be creating true joy in your life.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Get ready for an extra emo full moon in your relationship house on December 22, Capricorn. It’s going to bring some relationship dynamics to that have been percolating for some time up to the surface. Instead of fighting it, try softening in the face of vulnerability, be it yours or someone else’s. You are a growing being, and you get to ebb and flow with the rest of us. This month the best way to succeed is by not needing to.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
If you’ve been struggling to decide if you should go bigger or smaller, December is gonna drive you nuts. Your best bet is to expand as far as your preparedness will allow for, even if it’s not very far. It’s unwise to overextend yourself at this time because what you do will really count this month. Work within your limitations and your potential, instead of in spite of them, Aquarius. Better to get there right, instead of quickly.
Feb. 19-March 20
You’re making real progress and it’s exciting, but this month it’s wise to slow down enough to maintain your relationships. You don’t need to do anything huge, but reaching out with a simple text can go a long way to making your loved ones actually feel loved by you. Don’t get so caught up in your day-to-day busyness that you forget to maintain the things you care about most, dear Pisces
