DECEMBER 2015 FORECASTS
Monthly fun and easy to understand forecasts just for you!
Since Thanksgiving, the Saturn-Neptune square has been active. This aspect will be fiddling around in the cosmos for the next year. Remember, this is where the rubber meets the road in the “dream” department. Meaning, if you have a dream that you want, you can achieve it but you must not scatter your forces – you must dedicate yourself to the work necessary. Examine your goals and see if they are reasonable. Feel free to shift them this month if you see the writing on the wall. This aspect is perfect for addressing our illusions but also our addictions. Not just addictions to substances, but our addictions to fear, toxic relationships or the need for approval. Ditch the low-vibe energy and seek to uplift yourself by grounding yourself in reality. If you are a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) be very mindful of the energy you’re sending out or taking in. Set your boundaries now and stick to ‘em.
Mercury enters earthy Capricorn on the 9th, which is going to help with the grounding process. If you’ve been feeling flighty from that Saturn Neptune jazz, this will bring your feet down to the earth and help you stay centered on the tasks at hand. This transit is favorable for level-headed thinking and CEO moves. Look at where you need to take command and then do it.
Venus will be in sexy Scorpio from the 4th through the 30th, adding intensity and heat to the romantic department. This could be a sizzling few weeks with lots of opportunity to amp up the spice. If you are partnered, be sure to take advantageous of this transit by making time for date nights and naughty delights with your one-and-only. Scorpio is pure vamp-energy so don’t skimp on the erotic part – be edgy and try new things! Single? Get out and mingle – and flirt like you mean it. Be mysterious but don’t be shy! One thing to note: Venus can be very graspy and possessive in this sign. If you find yourself or a partner acting that way, keep this vibe in check before it turns into full-on control freak-outness. (Possessiveness is insecurity, not love.)
Uranus direct 25th in Aries signals a surge in progressive, original ideas. After a few months of retrograde action, it’s now full speed ahead into the future. Uranus in Aries demands we move forward. The old no longer works – it must be fixed. Uranus here also favors individuality. Don’t worry about what the other guy is doing…keep your eyes on your own paper. What’s new and original is what’s resonating. What’s old and already done must be reframed or recycled – or it’s done.
We also have a Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day. The Moon is happy here and brings out the urge to be home with the people we love the most. It’s a day to put the past in the past, to forgive and forget…and to deeply nourish your family.

Annnndddd here’s your personal monthly scopes:
Aries: As the year winds down to a close, December is a perfect month to take a vacation. With the Sun, Mercury and Saturn riding high in your 9th house of travel at the beginning of the month, you might want to scour the internet for special deals – and then book yourself a trip. A weekend at the beach or a visit with your relatives at the holidays will make your month merry and bright. Romance is going to be a bit tricky – with Venus and Mars in your 7th house, you may alternate between hot ‘n cold, especially after Venus moves into intense Scorpio on the 4th. This could bring fireworks in the bedroom – or a war of the roses. Try to keep your temper in check and channel your passion wisely. If you feel like a picking a fight, restrain yourself. It’s not worth it, even if you are in the right. At month’s end, recognition comes at work and you may end the year on a high note with a big bonus or plum new role. Onward!
Taurus: When it comes to gift-giving, those born under the sign of the bull are legendary in their impeccable taste and generosity. You love quality so it’s not surprising that you’ll be ready to indulge your loved ones with lavish gifts as expansive Jupiter moves through your 5th house of gambling and romance. You may be tempted to “go all out” and while that may feel good, serious Saturn sits with the Sun and Mercury in your 8th house of joint finances – if you are not careful, you may end up with a big, fat credit card bill at the beginning of 2016 and that’s not a good way to start out the year. Instead, give your darlings what they really want: your attention. That’s priceless. As Jennifer Lopez sang: “love don’t cost a thing.” With Venus moving into your 7th house of partnerships on the, both single and partnered Taureans get plenty of opportunities to step under the mistletoe. Get the fire blazing and don’t forget your Chapstick!
Gemini: After a bumpy few months, relationships are moving in a better direction this month, dear Gemini. The Sun, Mercury and Saturn in your 7th house of partnerships indicate that you’re working hard to patch things up and it’s going to pay off. You’re the born communicator of the zodiac and this month finds you at your best, able to connect deeper and move relationships to higher octave. It’s mature stuff for those who are ready to take responsibility for their role in relationship issues. This month is great for smoothing out problems but also making plans for the future. Whether you are thinking of popping the question or committing to a business deal, you’re ready to put your all into it. Career is moving along on a happy note. With Venus in your 6th house for most of the month, you’re able to use your charm to boost your position. A raise or bonus at the end of the year may put you in good financial shape before 2015 comes to a close.
Cancer: This month could be one of the busiest of the year at work for you, dear Cancer. With an active 6th house, it’s possible that you’ll be working longer hours or maybe even a side job to bring in extra holiday cash. While this may sound daunting, it’s not. The more willing you are to bust your hump, the better you’ll be when the month comes to an end. For one thing, with the Sun and somber Saturn in the 6th, you’ll get recognized for your efforts. Your power lies in your ability to lead and get things done so take the reins and move on up. Lovely Venus sits in your 5th house of romance for most of the month, making December good for meeting someone new or for deepening a current relationship. This is the right time to impress and spoil the one you love…or the one you want. Grand expressions of romance may well lead to some delicious surprises as the year comes to an end.
Leo: With Venus sitting in your 4th house of home, it’s time to get your domestic on, dear Leo. This is a favorable month for decorating the home or for entertaining. Whether you’re hosting the holidays or gathering the book club for a night of cocktails, do invite people into your crib and let your parties be on everyone’s must-attend list. You’ll be glad you did – and you’ll enjoy the company. The optimistic Sun joins forces with serious Saturn in your 5th house of romance, making December wonderful for date nights or, if you’re single, getting your mingling on. If you’re trying to find a new partner, it may feel like it’s a bit of work but you need to keep at it. Romantic Venus will edge into your 5th house right as the year is coming to a close. This will add a bit of sparkle to your love life until late January. The weather outside may be getting frightful but your life…may be getting delightful.
Virgo: Your household may be the center of a lot of activity this month, dear Virgo. With the Sun and Saturn in your 4th house, you may find yourself managing the holidays, taking care of home matters or navigating some serious family responsibilities. You’ll have a lot on your plate but things will be safe in your capable hands. Venus in the 3rd for most of the month gives you a loving attitude that will help you to move through December like a saint. Keep an eye on your finances all month long as impulsive Mars may find you itching to spend beyond your budget. It’s also possible that some unexpected expenses could come out of the blue, adding to your stress. Best path is to remain alert for $$$ problems and err on the side of frugal. At the end of the month, the Sun adds some heat to your 5th house of romance. If you’re looking for a little attention, you may just get it.
Libra: Mars is still moving through your sign, dear Libra. This is giving you gobs of energy that you can use at work – or at the gym. Burn that good stuff off and trust that even if your goals seem high, you can achieve them by focusing like a boss! Luxury loving Venus slides into your 2nd house of money for the month, which means Santa may be quite generous with you. This holiday may find you receiving a nice stash of fancy goodies that will delight you. You may also feel like being a generous giver too and if you can afford it, give with wild abandon! After a few months of feeling like a little dark cloud, you’re at your sunny best all month long. This may turn out to be one of the better months of the year and as 2015 comes to an end, you may have a whole different attitude on your life and your self. (PS the Sun will be in your 4th house of home and family right before the holidays. If you have beef with your loved ones, squash it and show up at the festivities with a red velvet cake. Because no one stays mad when cake is involved.)
Scorpio: You’ll be most effective when you’re behind the scenes this month, dear Scorpio. Whether that be managing the office or the holidays with the family, you can get a lot more done if you do it in your favorite mode: secret. With Mars in your 12th house, that won’t be hard. You’ll be able to keep things under wraps until you’re ready to spring them. This is especially good for gift giving! Even the nosiest kids won’t know where you’ve stashed the goods. Venus in the 1st indicates December is the right month to pamper yourself with a makeover or new outfit. If you’ve been sick of the look you’ve been rocking, go in and get an update. And then get ready to soak up the compliments! (PS Saturn in your 2nd house has been demanding that you budget all year long – but you may be able to find some extra cheddar for yourself. Don’t feel guilty about indulging. You deserve it!) Socially, this holiday is a winner for you. Jupiter is hanging around in your 11th house so expect the invites to be a’plenty. Have fun as you ring in the new year with your besties.
Sagittarius: As 2015 winds down, you’re in a reflective mood, dear Sagittarius. You’ve had to work hard on yourself this year and now you’re beginning to see the results of that. But there is still more work to be done and this is your time to assess where you’d like to make further changes. A new career? A move across the country? What do you want? Give yourself permission to step back from some of the holiday festivities to meditate on your next big move. Above all, don’t feel guilty or worried about making changes in 2016. With Jupiter in your 10th house of honors, you have luck to make any career transitions you desire with ease. Ask for the raise, go back for your Master’s, ditch that low vibe client, or take time off if you need. Mars in the 11th gives you the right allies to help you achieve your goals, making this month perfect for getting the ball rolling. Uranus turns direct in your 5th house on the 26th along with a full moon in Cancer. This is going to be fabulous for your love life and your cash flow. Things are moving right along as the year ends with Venus in your sign. You’ll be welcoming the new year on a happy note…and with a lot to look forward to.
Capricorn: At work, you’re as ambitious as they come, dear Capricorn. This month finds you in full on go-getter mode with Mars transiting your 10th house of honors and recognition. You’re going for the gold and you’re not letting anything stop you. Thankfully, no one will. Venus in the 11th assures you the support of your friends and allies as you march towards your goals with total confidence. December is also fabulous for your social life, especially if you’re looking to meet someone new. Get out and about as much as you can – you may just bump into a person that piques your interest. Despite all this action, the Sun and Saturn in your 12th may make you crave quiet time alone. Do keep a balance between your visibility and solitude. On the 22nd, the Sun enters your sign, signifying a month where your charisma is palpable. Work that charm to your advantage all the way until the late January. Shine on!
Aquarius: December will be extremely social, dear Aquarius. With the Sun in your 11th house, expect the invitations to come in by the dozen. Your social calendar will be filling up faster than Santa’s sleigh but somehow you manage to hit most of those gatherings without slowing down. Mars in your 9th indicates a trip (or two) may be possible. If you’re taking a holiday vacation with the family or indulging in a quick road trip to visit your pals, December is a fabulous month to get out of town as much as you can. Career is extra-sweet with Venus gracing your 10th house of honors – you may be receiving some good news and perhaps a major boost to your street cred. If you are in the public eye, this could be a reward for a job well done. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into your 12th house, which may make you crave a quieter holiday. Snuggling at home with a partner or even chilling by the fire with a good book might be the most sublime way to finish off this month…and the year.
Pisces: This month, you’re counting your blessings, dear Pisces. And those blessings are the many people in your life who’ve been showing up for you, big time. With Jupiter in your 7th house, this holiday season promises to be extra-loving. You’ll be surrounded by good people all month long and your relationships, even the diciest ones, seem to be improving. This is bound to make you feel optimistic and well-loved. You’ll be getting a lot of that same love in your career as the Sun sits high in your 10th house of career along with Saturn. This may bring a promotion or some fabulous public recognition. Step into the spotlight and take your bow. The Sun will move into your 11th house of friends on the 22nd, which means your Christmas and New Years will be best spent with your buddies. Attend a gathering or two if you can – and bring the merry. This is a joyous month with much to be grateful for. One caveat – do watch your money carefully all month long. Mars in the 8th can bring sudden financial setbacks, especially if you’re being impulsive or trusting someone else with your cash flow. Keep an eye on your stash.
