Your December Horoscope Is Crying Out For You To Move On—Or Get Dragged

Your December Horoscope Is Crying Out For You To Move On—Or Get Dragged

It may be Sagittarius season, but on December 2,Jupiter will move into Capricorn—where it will stay throughout 2020. This transit marks a time when you can breathe life into your plans and strategies, or find yourself getting more dogmatic about how you live and what you believe. The other big news this month comes on December 25,with a powerful solar eclipse in Capricorn. Don’t be scared to evolve—it may be uncomfortable, but it’s well worth it.

Have a gorgeous end to 2019, my loves.

This December, you may feel like things are a bit suspended. This is a good time to be assertive about what you want without attachment to what others do in response. Allow time for matters to develop at their own (potentially slow) pace, and for others to have their own reactions before they settle on the response that is right for them. As ever, stay present for the process, even when it gets awkward, Sagittarius.

On the December 2,Jupiter enters your sign, and on December 25there will be a solar eclipse in Cap too, making it a fertile time for setting intentions and clarifying your vision. Practice getting out of your own way, sweet Capricorn. Start by looking for the truth instead of the answer. Act in ways that reflect the person you want to be, even if it requires some pretty big changes. Step up and embody your potential, my love.

You’re moving through new terrain this month and it may be a bit of a bumpy ride. You may find that your defenses pop up when what you’re feeling is vulnerable or insecure, so beware of the unconscious tendency to self-sabotage or isolate yourself, Aquarius. You can’t know what’s coming next, but you can prioritize how you relate to yourself and others in the here and now. Practice being present in gentler ways, my love.

You’re on the verge of a whole new chapter, Pisces, and to make it a good one you’re going to have to trust yourself. Take time this month to get present with the progress you’ve made. Write yourself a love note, and send yourself appreciation for your evolution, no mater how incremental it was. Strive to have confidence in yourself, and to allow that feeling to empower you to follow through into the new year.

It’s easy to forget that others see things from a totally different vantage point than you do, but it isn’t wise. Instead of assuming that people see things the way you do and that you’re at the center of their thoughts when they do whatever mishegas that they do—remember that everyone has a universe inside of them. Don’t rush to assumptions, Aries. Let people and situations unfold before you jump to conclusions, this month.

Success is scary, because getting what you want comes with responsibility and with risk. This month may mark a time when things are improving or you can see potential on the horizon, and while that’s excellent news, you may find yourself feeling more stressed than blessed. Don’t let fear stop you from enjoying this moment, Taurus. Validate your progress and be here for your process, even if it’s super emo at times.

If you’ve been wavering with indecision, it’s time for you to slow down, get grounded, and make some meaningful choices. You’re ready to make real and embodied changes that will move your life in the direction you need it to go, but you’ll have to get out of your own way, first. Look back at the major themes that have played themselves out this year and commit to fully putting what you’ve learned into practice, Twin Star.

If you find yourself feeling uneasy this month, take a deep breath and get centered before you act. You may need to give your feelings some extra attention and care before you properly understand them. On December 25,there will be a solar eclipse in your relationship house, and it’s an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Be mindful that you don’t fall into old habits with others; if you don’t play your part, the dynamics you’re enmeshed in will have no choice but to change.

The relationships that you care most about are likely to be at the forefront of your thinking this month, and it’s bound to kick up some strong feelings. Take strides to meet your vulnerability with courage, your hopes with a clear plan, and your concerns with potential solutions. There’s no need to rush to the finish line, sweet Leo. Your only job is to walk the path with kindness and integrity this month.

The point of life is to evolve, not to keep things static. Change can be scary, but it’s an essential part of living a dynamic and satisfying life. Instead of fixating on what you don’t know, or what’s out of your control, look up, Virgo. It’s time to treat yourself to some gentle but pointed introspection. Start by striving to maintain a broadminded view of your situation so that the details don’t twist you up this month.

It’s not just OK to take a break—it’s often essential for you to thrive, Libra. This month you’re likely to be overwhelmed with strong emotions that slow you down. Strive to honor your feelings of overwhelm, confusion, or exhaustion with care and patience. With all this Capricorn energy in the air, it’s important that you don’t become the bully you wish to avoid. Give yourself room to process at your own pace.

While you may find yourself dealing with a disappointment this month, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Be open to finding ways of adjusting to what is, instead of lamenting what you thought it should be, Scorpio. What you want may not be what you need, especially as we’ve just come out of a particularly sticky Mercury Retrograde in your sign. Be open to life unfolding in beautifully unexpected ways, my love.

December 2018 Horoscopes

AriesMarch 21 to 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’.

TaurusApril 20 to 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.

GeminiMay 21 to 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.

CancerJune 22 to 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.

LeooJuly 23 to 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.

VirgoAug. 23 to 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.

LibraSept. 23 to 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.

ScorpioOct. 23 to 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.

SagittariusNov. 22 to 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.

CapricornDec. 22 to 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.

AquariusJan. 20 to 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.

PiscesFeb. 19 to 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.
