December is an exciting month full of cultural celebrations and festive traditions; it is also an excellent opportunity to reflect on the past year and set goals for next year.
Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac, covers November 22 – December 21 and is ruled by Jupiter. As one of Jupiter’s mutable fire signs, Sagittarius represents archery, its symbol being a centaur with a bow and arrow. First recognized by Babylonian astronomers during the 11th century BCE, this constellation remains one of humanity’s oldest known constellations today.
Sagittarians are known to be cheerful and lively members of the zodiac. Full of big hugs and vibrant energy, Sagittarians tend to overspend but also possess resilience that allows them to recover quickly from setbacks or disappointments. Naturally optimistic, it’s always easy for Sagittarians to bring out laughter in others.
These individuals enjoy traveling, as they’re intrigued by the world and its diversity of cultures. People born on this date frequently pursue careers that allow them to do just that, such as teachers, tour guides, or language instructors. Their natural curiosity makes them excellent students with an insatiable appetite for knowledge.
Goal-seekers find greater fulfillment when they have goals in sight, yet may struggle to appreciate life’s simple pleasures. Their hopes lie in believing their ambitions will outlive reality while they possess a deep-seated generosity of spirit.
As we enter the final month of 2018, Sagittarius’ ruling planet, Mercury, makes an unusually long move into Capricorn (Mercury typically stays three weeks). This move highlights how debt and loans, both financial and romantic, fall under this part of your chart.
As such, you must prioritize taking care of your finances and learning to appreciate all you already have. Also beneficial will be surrounding yourself with people who bring joy. Now is an excellent opportunity to reestablish relationships with those you consider true friends.
On Friday, December 23, the Capricorn new moon marks a momentous new chapter for creativity and pleasure. Ruled by Saturn (the planet of structure, limits, and ambition), Capricorn earth signs tend to be disciplined yet resourceful – perfect conditions to start planning goals and realizing dreams! Furthermore, this coincides with the winter solstice, an opportunity to send love back through time to past versions of yourself.
Capricorn, you are an ambitious yet disciplined zodiac sign who enjoys the feeling of accomplishment that comes with meeting goals. Reliable people like yourself believe that everything equals output; thus, this month may motivate you to learn something new like language learning or natural sciences like herbalism or botany.
After an active Sagittarius season, Mercury and Venus’ entry into Capricorn on Tuesday, December 6, and Friday, December 9, will give you time to focus on home and family. Now is also an opportune moment for reflecting upon legacy issues – how you want your name remembered by future generations.
As November progresses, you may reflect upon relationships and their dynamics anew. This is especially important if something happened during Mars’ retrograde in Libra (which ended on Wednesday, November 21), which caused you to change how you perceive relationships or beliefs; at times, you may also gain clarity regarding ways to improve communication among intimate partners.
After the full moon in Gemini on November 30th ends the cuffing season, December’s new moon in Capricorn on December 23 is an excellent opportunity to set romantic intentions – keep an open mind as Mercury stations retrograde on December 29th! Additionally, Neptune Direct will arrive later this month, inspiring spiritually healing trips with friends that help connect you with your soul’s journey while having fun!
Reducing activity may seem counter-intuitive to your everyday schedule, but don’t dismiss this slower season as something negative: quieter times of year provide the ideal opportunity for reflection and evaluation of current situations – especially with Mars retrograding in Gemini and your first house of body, identity, and relationships. Right now is also an opportune time to restructure relationships as December 7’s full moon illuminates your partnership sector – revealing revelations can prompt rethinks on positions taken within relationships while taking an honest evaluation of what gives/gets back could transform things for the better!
On December 23rd, the Capricorn new moon brings magic to your 10th House of Career. Expect your hard work to pay off significantly, and it may be an ideal opportunity to demand that raise or promotion. Furthermore, reconnecting with spirituality as Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces while Venus joins Uranus may give rise to emotional freedom!
Saturn continues its three-year transit through Aquarius and brings your long-term goals more into focus. You are making solid strides toward stabilizing your financial situation; though this journey has been challenging, it will pay dividends when Jupiter reenters Aries in early March 2023.
As Venus shifts out of fiery Sagittarius into a more stable and practical Capricorn, now is not a time for too much seriousness! Let go of your worries and have some fun; now more than ever, it should be easy to find reasons to celebrate! This powerful combination may spark romantic encounters or enhance creative projects; tension may arise, but remember anger is an effective tool – use it wisely, and you may unleash powerful results!
Pisces This week brings an artistic, dreamy energy as Venus in Sagittarius collides with Neptune in Pisces on December 4. This romantic and imaginative combination may inspire you to dream up new ideas about what you want to bring into the world, potentially prompting vision boards or screenplay writing projects. Just be sure to include practical components like goals and timelines into any fanciful plans; Mercury enters Capricorn on December 6, shedding more light on friendships and group dynamics and your hopes for the future!
On Wednesday, the full moon in Gemini may cause tension at home or within your living situation, especially as it falls within your fourth house of family and domestic affairs. Please don’t hold back from expressing any irritations or grievances, as they must be addressed head-on before Friday arrives when a new moon in Aquarius takes over, and your mood will likely improve significantly.
As a water sign, Pisces is known for making things appear either better or worse, so a New Moon in Pisces may bring back spiritual clarity or be an opportunity to start fresh with money, stability, and self-esteem.
This month will allow you to boost your savings, with Jupiter returning to Pisces until December 20, setting off an auspicious earning period. While you might feel inclined to indulge yourself a little, be careful not to overdo it, as the full moon in Virgo will soon force your budget back into line with your values and bring about balance once again.
Pisces will see great success this year as Jupiter and Saturn, two career-boosting planets, return to Capricorn until February. This provides you with a golden opportunity to increase your position in business; now could be an ideal time to consider opening an online business or expanding internationally with guidance from mentors as support.
