December is a month of magic, especially where relationships are concerned. The last month of 2018 is going to bring about positive change and renewal as we make way into the New Year. There are a few sign changes which take us back into the past to reflect on the prior year, and to purge some stagnate energy so that when 2019 comes, we can welcome it with a new slate.
On December 1st, the first day of month, Mercury moves back into Scorpio. Mercury is still in retrograde, and so when this sign change occurs, it does a deep cleansing on removing that stagnate energy which kept us in the dark in terms of our deepest thoughts. The very next day, Venus also moves back into Scorpio, which also allows us to move beyond those dark emotions as well. Relationships may become a bit more intense, perhaps a bit obsessive, and also a little secretive – that is when it comes to understanding our true feelings and reflecting on what we wish to do with them. This isn’t really a good month for breakups, or for starting a new relationship – well not until Mercury turns direct and makes another sign change into much lighter and optimistic Sagittarius on December 12th.
December 6th we will all be jumping for joy when Mercury finally turns direct, closing out the year from the final retrograde of 2018. Now we can get back on schedule with flight plans to visit family for the holidays, planning events for the holiday festivities and also getting out there to meet new people.
The very next day, on December 7th, we have a magical New Moon in Sagittarius. This moon brings a gift of manifestation, hope, and restores our faith in making a wish on that lucky star. This is the perfect moon to create a wish or goal list of what we want to accomplish for the new year that is approaching.
Just a week later, on December 12th, is when Mercury moves into Sagittarius, giving us a little bit of a spark of magic before the end of the year. When Mercury enters Sagittarius, it is a time thinking and doing big. Be careful when doing some holiday shopping so not to go over budget, as when Mercury is ruled by Sag, we can tend to go a little overboard and not pay too much mind with what we have in the bank account. The worst thing you can do is enter 2019 with a ton of debt because you didn’t think twice before buying your loved one a lavish present they could of probably done without. Rather than reaching into your wallet, use the creative energy that Sagittarius brings and find other ways to let your loved ones know you are thinking about them.
On December 21st, the Sun moves in Capricorn, which is also the same day as the winter solstice. This is a time of reflecting on the year before and giving thanks for all of the experiences which had taught and guided us to where we are now. With the Capricorn energy it is a good time for setting boundaries, and making plans for what we wish to accomplish in 2019, especially when it comes to business or career.
The very next day on December 22nd we have a very emotional yet nurturing Full Moon in Cancer which allows us to get into the mood for tradition and getting back in touch with family and old friends around the holiday season. This is also a very powerful moon when it comes to resetting emotions that stem from family traumas.
On the final day of the year, Mars enters Aries on December 31st. This is perfect for New Years Eve as we finalize our resolutions and plan out the year ahead. This inspires us to put forth action to the plans and goals we wish to accomplish and gives us the energy and drive to get it all done.

December seems to be a month of positive change, that is when it comes to emotional matters. As we get into the other cards we will determine exactly where these changes are coming from, as well as the other factors that come into play, whereas certain things may not be so positive for you, Aries. It does seem that the last month of the year is going to has some major ups and downs, and they are going to be rather escalated when it comes to how good, and bad, things are going for you.
The first week of the month, on December 7th, there is a very magical New Moon in Sagittarius which is not to be taken lightly. This is the perfect day of the year for you to focus on the new intentions you want to set for the new year ahead. And, as the month comes to a close on the last day, December 31st, Mars moves into Aries which is a great time for you to act upon those intentions you had set into place. 2019 is going to bring you much of what you had asked for during the Sagittarius New Moon, so make sure you shoot for the stars when asking for what you desire!

You are focused on building this month, on bettering yourself and your situation which will in turn help better your environment as well. What is it that you want, Taurus? You need to focus on that and aim high for making what you desire to happen. You cannot dream a dream and keep it just that, a dream, you also need to act upon it if you wish for things to change in a positive direction or if you are trying to gain something. You are not one that denies the fact that hard work pays for everything, and so there isn’t anything different with this. You cannot expect anything to come your way without a price!
This month is going to be rather positive when it comes to manifesting something that you truly want to take form, and so you need to not only focus on what you want, but also put in that little bit of elbow grease in order to make it happen.
The 3 of Disks says that something very positive is coming into form this month, Taurus, to be on the lookout for opportunities that represent something you have been wanting and be sure to take the steps to allow it to happen.

Patience and effort are the keys to unlock the full potential of December, Gemini. While this past year hasn’t been the kindest, it seems that this month is going to be a turn of fate and may even extend onto 2019. However, while good things are coming, it doesn’t mean that you can put in the towel and quit while you’re ahead, that is of course unless you want to ensure that you benefit the most.
You might feel a bit on your own as the month unfolds, so you need to make sure that you don’t allow this feeling to take center stage and pull you away from your path. You need to keep moving forward to ensure that you reap all of the benefits that you are trying to reap this month. You have to keep reminding yourself that all of your hard work is going to pay off, and that you will receive all that you are hoping for. Quitting while you’re ahead or throwing in the towel just before the finish line will do nothing but fill your heart with regret as the opportunities you are trying to receive pass you by.

Well, Well, Cancer, it seems that December has a lot going on with matters of the heart. Now, while things are looking up in this area, you will still have a few bumps in the road in regards to other areas in your life, and as we get into the other cards we will determine exactly where these are. The main thing is that you need to be mindful of an opportunity coming your way, as this can be something you have been wanting for some time, or it could be a complete surprise – regardless of how it is presented or exactly what it is, know that it is going to be extremely positive. However, you need to be careful with how you go about it. Basically, this can be something passing, or something long term, but regardless, it is something extremely beneficial, so keep that in mind when you find yourself stressing about the future. Do your best to let go of expectation and just appreciate the moment.
I do feel that around the Cancer Full Moon on December 22nd, you will be presented with this opportunity, or it will be highlighted in the sense of what you are going to do with it. The main thing to keep in mind is when you are presented with an opportunity that fits this theme, do not hesitate on considering it.

This is going to be quite the magical month for you, Leo, where you will not only be feeling more yourself than you have in the past while, but you will also be meeting with someone who will offer guidance or even stand as an inspiring influence within your time of need – however, this could also be a role that you will end up playing for someone else and their gratitude alone will be rewarding to where you start to feel that light within once again shine. This is a good month for you to get out there and mingle with others, to make new friends and even business contacts – your power lies within the recognition and reflection you receive from others. As most Leos shine their brightest when being received and applauded by a crowd of peers which show admiration and adoration. Many portray Leo as being boastful or egocentric because of this, but it is actually the sign’s mission within this incarnation – to shine and to see that bright light within the eyes of others.
The main thing to remember this month is to not get overboard or carried away when being graced with an appreciative audience – as you may come across certain personalities which have an ulterior motive behind buttering you up – basically some compliments are not coming straight from the heart and have something behind them. Choose your crowd and choose it wisely. Take those compliments with grace, but don’t let them get to your head.

Well, Virgo, it seems that December is going to be a very busy month for you – where you might be feeling it is all work and very little play. While you are a sign that takes hard work seriously and doesn’t mind putting in that elbow grease, you may actually feel a little exhausted and pray for a break. Well, don’t give in to that wish, because you will need to put in the extra mile. Also, another misconception with Virgo, is that while you don’t mind some hard work, you often put too much on your plate where you end up procrastinating because you end up getting so overwhelmed that you just don’t know where to start, or you are too scattered and busy to get anything done. Yes, you are organized, but sometimes you end up overscheduling yourself which causes all of this. And that’s what is going on in December – things from the past are going to come back to bite you in the butt because you have left them on the back burner for far too long.
While you do feel overwhelmed, do your best to whistle while you work and get things done – you will be so happy that you did as when your schedule finally clears up, new opportunities will be presenting themselves which is going to prove all of this hard work beneficial. The worst thing you could do is further procrastinate or put things off any longer and end up missing out on something great.

What’s fair is fair, Libra, and know this because you are the sign which represents justice. This month there is going to be a sort of turn of events where you will be receiving a reward, or more like a karmic exchange. This is due from positive actions from the past where you had put some currency in your karmic bank – so when an opportunity, or something in that line comes to your path, do not question it and welcome it with open arms. You will certainly be happy that you did!
Also, another thing you may be feeling this month is in the spirit of giving. So, when you feel the need to help someone out, do not hesitate and do what you can to benefit them. As this is going to be something which not only makes you feel warm and cozy inside, but also pave open opportunities within your path that welcome abundance and blessings. December is all about giving and receiving.

Just like your neighboring sign, Libra, December also offers a karmic exchange for you, Scorpio. This is a month of both giving and receiving, by both putting back into your karmic bank with good deeds, and also being blessed with abundance for those positive things you have done. So don’t shy away when your path is being glittered with gold and count your lucky stars are you reach out your hands to take what is due. Also, when you feel that spirit of giving, don’t hold back and make sure you put forth all that you can to help someone in need.
Scorpios are often painted as being a bit dark or even selfish, but in reality, you are one of those selfless and loyal signs of the zodiac that will go beyond for those who truly need you. Your heart is actually two sizes too big and even though you don’t really show it, you yearn to express it. And December offers you that opportunity. This may be due from both Mercury and Venus finding home within your sign this month, but also Mercury, the planet of communication turning direct. Both the mind and the heart are in your domain.

Happy Birthday Sagittarius!
I wish I could say that this month is going to be a treat, but it seems that it is going to be filled with a lot of work, and some surprises which may shock you. While you may have expected certain things to unfold this month, they are going to come out of the blue and may seem a bit harsh at first. The main thing you need to focus on, is the future. Which isn’t very hard for an optimistic Sagittarius to do, as you are always looking ahead and easily roll with whatever punches life throws at you.
The cosmos are also on your side as many planets make home within your sign. We’ve got the Sun, a New Moon and Mercury! So, make a wish, Sag, but don’t be surprised once things start moving fast to make that wish come true. Remember, be careful what you ask for, and look to the silver lining when you feel a dark cloud hovering above you, because a lot of times when the Universe works it magic, it does so in mysterious ways that often turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

Independence is key this month, Capricorn. You might be dwelling on the fact that while you are always there for others, when it comes to you being in need, no one seems to fit the bill. Either they show up and half ass it, or they don’t respond to your requests – which takes a lot for you to even ask in the first place. Or perhaps you haven’t even asked but are expecting for them to get the hint – no one is a mind reader, Capricorn, so you can’t get mad when you haven’t dropped any hints or flat out asked. Don’t hold on to any resentments, and instead, put yourself out there. If your requests are met, then don’t get mad – there might be other things going on that are holding them up, so instead, consider on how you can help yourself first.
You are a very reliable and loyal sign, and so it is hard for you when others don’t pay that same respect to you. However, rather than getting upset, you need to look back at the times you did receive the help you need and be appreciative for the little bit you got. You should start to feel better once the Winter Solstice/Sun moves into Capricorn and the Full Moon in Cancer – this may be where you start to recognize the support and help you have been looking for at the start of the month.

You might be thinking that things could be better, but in the end, things are as they are, and you need to accept that. You may be forced to take a break, or to sit still for a bit as things come to a close this month. You need to reflect at the year behind you as you get ready for the year ahead. You might feel a bit lonely this month and feel a bit outcasted as others enjoy the festivities when you are left behind. Perhaps you are a little under the weather, which is cause for you to remain on your own, or you are changing social circles. Whatever it may be, this is your time to take a bit of a break. You need to regather your strength and to clear your mind, as 2019 will have plenty of action and movement for you to take part in, so consider this your time to regroup so you can have the strength you need to go into 2019 as your best self.
You can’t force anything to move ahead, especially when you aren’t feeling your best, so take your time Aquarius, and be appreciative of the time you are given to do so. Take this little breather room to plan out your New Year’s resolutions.

There is a lot happening for you in December, Pisces. You are moving ahead and in very positive ways. You feel like you finally have control of your environment and that things are falling into place, which is giving you even more motivation to tackle some goals and plans you have been putting aside for a while now. This is your month to get the ball rolling, to act, and to finally move beyond where you had felt stuck in the past.
The thing is, you have to act, Pisces. You can’t keep wanting change, or for things to finally move on for you if you are still standing still. The thing is, it is easy for you to dream of how you want things to be but acting upon it is another story. This month offers you the inspiration and energy to do so, so when opportunities arise, you need to take hold of them. And don’t worry, you will be receiving the help and support you need – actually, much more than you had thought you would.
