It’s December! We are in the last month of this year, and 2017 is going out with a bang.
On December 1st, Venus, which is the planet of love and beauty, cruised into Sagittarius. Indulgent Venus is quick to adopt the traits of whatever constellation it occupies. It develops an idealized version of romance, based on the personality of its corresponding sign. When the planet Venus glides across Sagittarius’ fiery sky, our relationship goals become action-packed partnerships.
Until the 25th of December, we will crave romances which are adventurous, playful and filled with lots of humor.
Are you in a relationship?
If you are, stir up the good kind of trouble with your boo through thrill-seeking voyages.
Are you single?
If you are, do not be surprised if a long-distance lover catches your eye.
Be sure to proofread your texts over the next few weeks. On Sunday, December 3rd, Mercury went reverse, commencing its dreaded retrograde cycle. Mercury governs day-to-day expression, communication, as well as decision making. When the messenger planet goes backward, it causes frustrating misunderstandings, as well as technological meltdowns and travel delays. From now until the 22nd of December, make sure to check your wish list twice and choose your words carefully. Allocate some extra time for travel mishaps.
Also, on December 3rd, a full moon happened in the Gemini constellation. The full moon illuminates the night sky, shining some unfiltered light on everything that we keep hidden. Don’t be surprised if you have received some shocking information about your friends over the weekend, during this period. But also try to avoid the grapevine, cosmic warrior. Gossip is never a cute thing.
On December 18th, during the new moon in Sagittarius, plant seeds.
During this lunar phase, we need to trust our intuition. It’s time to start a new spiritual adventure. To embrace some new hobby, or study an intellectual passion.
On December 19th, a significant astrological event will happen.
Saturn, which is the taskmaster planet, will move out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn. Saturn cycles through the twelve zodiac signs on every 28-30 years. Its movement into a new sign preludes a 2-3 year period that underscores our toughest lessons. Since 2015, the planet Saturn has been hammering the zodiac sign Sagittarius, forcing us to examine our extreme behaviors, as well as challenge our faith. Saturn is the natural ruler of Capricorn, associated with responsibility and professional achievements.
Early on Christmas morning, December 25th, our mistletoe vibes may be a bit more reserved when the planet Venus joins the sun, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. If you have a partner, make sure that you do not treat them like your assistant. If you are single, make sure that you are not showing interest in opportunistic intentions.
