December is a month of both commitment and taking on responsibility. Capricorn is highlighted this month as it dominates the cosmos, and so its energy is to be harnessed into our lives for making the New Year, 2020, one of goal setting and accomplishment.
December starts with a bang as Jupiter shifts into Capricorn on the 2nd. While Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and luck, it is somewhat restricted in Capricorn as many astrologers consider this Jupiter’s fall, meaning that Capricorn is a very restrictive sign and so it thwarts the growth that Jupiter wishes to bestow upon us. However, there is still a good chance to receive that good fortune, BUT you have to work for it.
I don’t typically speak of the oppositions, conjunctions, or squares within my monthly forecasts; however, this is a very important one. One the same day that Jupiter moves into Capricorn, we have a major conjunction with Saturn and Jupiter, and this only happens once every 20 years. The last time this had occurred was right before 9/11, a day that had changed the entire World. I am not predicting a world-wide catastrophe, but merely saying that there is a high potential for changes in a global scale.
On December 9th Mercury moves into fun loving and light-hearted Sagittarius. While a sense of optimism is gifted to us, we have to be weary of skipping details and being overly enthusiastic about opportunities which may not be paved in gold, but rather just gold plated. While conversation is promised to be shifted towards a better light than it was in darkening Scorpio, we need to ensure that we keep our promises and mean what we say.
December 11th we are gifted with a very optimistic Full Moon in Gemini which puts a spotlight on our relationships with our siblings, roommates/neighbors, and our friendships. This is also a time of making final decisions in putting into stone the things we had discovered during Mercury’s retrograde last month. This is also a wonderful moon for spiritual teachers and spiritual seekers, as it brings the unconscious to light and makes our intuition much stronger, as well as our spiritual connection.
Venus moves from Capricorn into Aquarius on December 19th. We move from lasting commitments to feeling a bit more detached, emotionally. Friendship is more important than romance, and so we look for more depth within our relationships, ensuring that there is still a strong sense of independence and having a strong foundation of being friends, first.
December 21st is not only the Winter Solstice, but it is also when the Sun enters Capricorn. This is a time to focus on change as the seasons do as well. Career matters, our public image, and financial issues are on the forefront during this time.
On December 25th we are hit with a powerful New Moon & Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Conjunct with Jupiter, this marks a day of serious good fortune. While Eclipses aren’t a time of planting new seeds, but New Moons are, the energy is a bit confusing with where to go, what to start, and what to plan. This is a day of expecting miracles to help push old projects to completion, in finalizing what we have worked on throughout 2019, so to make a clean slate for 2020. Consider this your Christmas present from the cosmos, bringing good tidings and cheer!
The year ends with another major cosmic shift as Mercury moves into Capricorn. This is a time of goal setting and focusing on what we wish to accomplish in the new year. Your New Year’s resolutions will be boosted with energy that is goal-oriented with a drive to succeed. So when you focus on your goals and resolutions, ensure that you put them in practical steps and then one-be-one, walk that walk towards your desired path.

XVI the Tower
Well, Aries, it seems like 2019 is going out with a bang for you. Either way, you wouldn’t have it any different, as you like to always have the last word and have your presence remembered. However, it does seem that this month is going to prove to be far more difficult than you might feel you could handle.
You must be very careful with how you make your next steps after things start to crumble. You need to keep in mind though – what may seem to be falling apart, may actually be falling into place. While it might not seem that way, you need to have faith that things will turn out better than you had anticipated, as this redirection you are going to experience, will place you on a pathway which directs you to a higher path for the betterment of your future, and those who are closely involved.
You have to give something up – something that you might have been clinging to for some time now, and there is no way of going around this. It must be done, or you would have to face the consequences which could be very negative. This may be something to do with your lifestyle choices, a relationship which has served its purpose, or a pathway which is now leading towards a dead end. While you have it fixed in your mind that you can bulldoze through any brick wall, this one is too strong for you to penetrate, and so it is time to consider other options.

II the High Priestess
Well, Taurus, things could be worse – so watch your tongue and make sure all the actions you take resonate from your higher self. Do not stoop to the level of your adversity and build your empire with the bricks which are thrown at you. December is going to be a pretty climatic month in terms of conflict and resolution, and while there might seem to be nothing but chaos, keep in mind that chaos can create creative energy which can be used to your advantage. With that said, rise above it and do not stoop to the lower frequencies which are trying to trigger you – do not engage in negative behavior even though you are invited to do so.
Your intuition is heightened this month, and you know certain things that are left unsaid by others – and you know this because you sit quietly and observe body language, you read into the energies projected by others, and you also read in between the lines where others may skim through. While you might be on top of your game with this hidden knowledge, it is best to keep it hidden for now, as while secrets are rarely a good thing, you need to keep your feelings and intuition to yourself, and allow things to pan out, while being one step ahead in the predictability of what is about to unfold.
Your power comes from your mind this month, and with great discipline, you need to direct this power for good.
GENERAL / SELF
VII the Chariot
December is going to be action-packed for you Gemini, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. You are the master of adaptability and also flying by the seat of your pants, and so when the winds suddenly change, you are ready to rumble.
There is a lot of good fortune in store for you this month, especially with the Full Moon broadcasting a spotlight upon you on the 11th. This is your time to shine. However, do not forget that while there is a lot of good fortune, you have to work for it. Nothing comes too easily, and if it does, it usually is not worth the trouble at all. So, pull up your sleeves and be ready to apply that elbow grease. You may also have some obstacles that stand in your way in front of a treasured goal, or perhaps the pathway that leads to this good fortune. Do not allow these obstacles to serve as roadblocks. You have a powerful mind, Gemini, and can easily fathom ideas out of thin air to help surmount anything that stands in your way. Remember, Gemini, when there is a will, there is always a way.

0 the Fool
There is a lot going on for you this month, Cancer, and you are rolling with it quite well. However, you might not be all that grounded as you should be, and so you could be missing out on important details, or perhaps even making decisions based on sudden emotions rather than allowing logic to lead you. As they say, follow your heart, but take your brain with you!
You need to ensure you are not rushing forward with something without first thinking it through. While it feels right in your heart, you could be a bit misguided because your emotions tend to be all over the place this month, between the highs and the lows of what you will be experiencing in many aspects of your life.
You could be misinterpreting your intuition because of having so much in your mind and your heart. The best way to navigate through is being grounded and finding your center – then the messages you need will come through with more clarity.

December is a month full of tradition as we celebrate the Winter solstice and one of the most favored holidays of the year; Christmas, or also known as Yule. This month many drive out to neighborhoods to witness the beauty of thoughtfully decorated homes and their Christmas lights while sipping hot chocolate, this is also a time that family travel far and wide to come together and share this special time of togetherness and gift-giving. With that said, this is a favored time of year for many Leo’s as it compliments their generous nature, allows for them to celebrate all of the people they love the most, and also serves as an opportunity to show off their hosting skills.
This month you are in the spirit of tradition, but it also seems that others are as well, and so you are gifted as much as you give in return. This puts a smile on your face, and makes you feel very loved. However, there are also some traditions which you do not agree with, and so while everyone is following that straight and narrow path that has been paved from generations ago, you might be considering changing things up a bit to add your own little touch, or even breaking some traditions all together.
All in all, you should expect to receive a gift from someone who cares for you very much, Leo, and this is something that can be used for a project or goal that you hold very dear to your heart.

December might not be the best month for you, Virgo, or so it may seem. A lot is going on in your emotions, and you might find it hard to analyze what exactly you are feeling. You may have to give something up, and it won’t be easy because of what you have invested into it. However, you will find that separating yourself from this is far more freeing than dealing with the stress of trying to hold on.
You need a release, to let go of pent up emotions which may be causing a lot of the fog you are experiencing when perceiving this situation. A good cry never hurt anyone – even the strongest people need a good cry to let it all out and to gain clarity. This might not be easy for you though, because you tend to want to make sense of your emotions and sometimes deem a good cry as a moment of weakness or failure.
This may all come around during the Gemini Full Moon on the 11th and will start to gain movement during the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn near the end of the month.

Libra, you are wearing yourself out because you have a hard time in saying no, setting boundaries, and keeping things to yourself for the sake of keeping the peace. Sometimes the boat must be rocked in order to shift the weight around, otherwise you could end up capsizing from the imbalance. You need to release some of these burdens, which may be outdated obligations anyways. You may also be enabling someone to depend too much on you where they could easily do for themselves. You don’t like to be the bad guy, but sometimes tough love is the best love to offer in certain cases, and this just may be one of those cases.
You are overworked, over stressed, and undervalued, which makes it extremely hard to maintain peace and balance within your relationships, career, and in other aspects of your life as well. Something has got to give, and if you don’t start taking action, then it will only start to get worse – you could end up missing out on valuable opportunities because you don’t have the time, energy, or space to take them on.
December is a month of downsizing on responsibility which isn’t sensible, and obligations which are now serving as blockages.

Things are happening fast, Scorpio. You are going to receive a glimpse of something you had asked for long ago, manifesting before your eyes. While this is just a taste, it does excite you, but you have to remember that your work is not yet done, and so keep doing as you were before to ensure that you receive the rest of it.
You may also be opening your mind to another perspective this month, which allows for you to take into consideration the other side of a dilemma you have been so against in the past. This may require a lot of forgiveness on your part, which you might not feel ready to offer, however, with seeing the other side of this situation, it may be a bit easier to let your guard down and to open your heart again.
Travel may also be in the cards for you this month – besides, it is a month of celebration! Be sure that you pack light but be ready to take on sudden adventures which may have not been planned. In short – an open mind will serve you well this month.

Happy Solar Return, Sagittarius! 🥳 🎉
December is going to be an amazing month for you. This month is full of generous support and deep connection with those that you love and cherish the most. After all, many are coming to celebrate you!
The biggest gift you may receive this month is a leg up on an issue you have been having a difficult time with. Someone proves their loyalty and stands firmly in your corner, offering whatever you need to get through this. If you happen to not find anyone there, simply ask, for they might not know what you need if you don’t vocalize it, and once you do, they will be willing and ready to do what needs to be done.
Likewise, you may be the one called to help a friend or loved one in need. Do what you can, Sagittarius, and their gratitude will be worth more than gold.

Happy Solar Return, Capricorn! 🥳 🎉
You might feel that a lot is working against you, or that you are so very confused about your current phase in life. You typically have a great sense of direction, Capricorn, and with a good set of goals, you can move mountains. However, when you don’t have anything to work towards, or if the odds feel too highly stacked against you, then it places you in a position of hopelessness and despair. An idle Capricorn can cause a lot more trouble than most any other signs because your energy isn’t directed towards a higher cause, which you need.
You have to look deeply within yourself to find the answers that you seek, as you can reach out as much as you can, but in the end, you may find that you are more confused with conflicting advice and may even find that some of those you seek guidance on are working against you – or so it feels because of being overwhelmed right now.
The Solar Eclipse & New Moon, plus the Sun, Jupiter, and also Saturn are all governing your sign, and then Mercury joins the ranks near the end of the month – this means that you are put through the ringer of cosmic shifts in life-changing situations. For the good, or for the bad, is how you make it.

You have been working hard on setting boundaries, Aquarius, but… what if you had set too many? There are so many spiritual quotes and memes floating about and most of them all say that you need to sever toxic ties and set boundaries with others, however, there are very few that indicate we need some of these people in our lives and that too many boundaries make it a lonely road and diminish our sense of human connection with others.
You might be holding too tightly onto this notion that you have to sever ties with others and cancel out connections that really aren’t that bad. Perhaps you need to take a look in the mirror and realize that you too are a bit toxic in other’s lives, or that the naysayers may have some truth in what they are trying to relay to you.
You casted a strong circle, but you might have to step outside of it a bit and allow others to come back into your space.

Expansion is the name and game for you this month, Pisces. You are moving ahead and also adding to what you already have. This means that you are going to be receiving help in achieving a treasured goal, and that you will be expanding in areas where you need it the most. You may be doing home renovations, remodeling, or even moving to a new home that offers more space and also at a more affordable price. What else? Well, it seems that the area of your career is also going up and beyond as well. You are passionate about what you do, and this passion shows, allowing for you to take on the spotlight before you superiors which works in your favor in the long-run.
Not only do you need to count and thank your lucky stars, but also those who stand in your corner and are assisting in your expansion. Your success is brought on by your hard work, but also by those who have helped you along the way.
This month is all about celebrating your achievements and showing gratitude towards those who have had your back.
