DECEMBER 2013 FORECASTS
Aries: The holiday season may find you hitting the road or communicating with loved ones at a distance. No matter how far you need to go or how distant your relatives may be, you always find a way to stay connected, dear Aries. At work, you have a little extra charm but don’t push your luck after the 21st when Venus goes retrograde in your 10th house of reputation. Any hijinks or indiscretions could come to the surface and put a buzzkill on your seasonal joy. (PS tension on at family gatherings can be avoided if you keep your fiery nature in check. Stick with the unspiked egg nog for best results.)
Taurus: The weather outside may be frosty but your romantic life is gathering some real heat, dear Taurus. Expect fireworks and smoky encounters this month! If you are single, you may be attracting more worthwhile (and hot) companions so be sure to mingle and make merry. Partnered? A little time off may be well spent keeping each other warm and toasty. Be patient with any holiday travel as the potential for a snafu could have you waiting, waiting….and waiting. You have a reputation as a patient sort but this may be get severely tested.
Gemini: End of the year work responsibilities may have you feeling like poor Bob Cratchit this month, dear Gemini. Saturn is in your 6th house and trined with Jupiter – you’ll have more than enough work to keep you busy and profitable but those long hours are going to be a killer. Making time for your loved ones is vital or this could be one lonely holiday. Luckily for you, the ones who love you the most seem to be more understanding than usual. They realize that you’re doing this grind so that Tiny Tim can have his Christmas dinner proper. Work hard, play hard, dawg.
Cancer: You’ve been working hard all year, dear Cancer, and it’s about to pay off. After a long slog at the grindstone, December promises to be a month where you see some real progress and gratitude. Expect a promotion, pat on the back or big ole bonus! And please don’t be humble – you have more than earned this. You’ll have warm family times over the holiday but be very mindful of your boundaries. With Mars sitting in your 4th house of family, quarrels and heated debates are itching to come to the surface. Keep your cool and don’t engage. If the adults insist on acting like jerks, sit at the kiddie table.
Leo: The theme this month is love – as in loving your job, your family and possibly getting some love action too. With lots o’ fifth and sixth house planetary action, you’re ready to kill it at the office or the club (or both!), dear Leo. At work, you shine all month long like some sort of glittery ornament. You may be attracting the attention of superiors and could be getting a pleasant end of the year surprise (holiday bonus?). In matters of the heart, you are also looking fetching and ready to rumble. Your quick wit and come hither aura will be bringing the boys (or girls) to the yard. Shake that money maker and enjoy all that December promises!
Virgo: Virgos are known for their planning and December could find you micromanaging the entire holiday down to the very finest details. With the Sun and Mercury in the 4th house for most of the month, you may be the power that makes the household run. Family duties and responsibilities need to be handled by someone who is willing to step up to the plate – and this month you’re the one to do just that. Money will be flowing fast ‘n furious. With Mars in the 2nd house, a mindful eye needs to be trained on the wallet or this could turn out to be one of the most expensive holidays ever (don’t forget your good pals…cough cough). Curb that impulse or suffer next month when the bills come due.
Libra: Mars is moving into your sign on the 6th, which is bound to amp up your energy like nobody’s business, dear Libra. You’re on fire and may be moving at warp speed, flitting from one event to the next and getting all prolific at work. You’re wheeling and dealing like the biggest playa on the planet. Work that Libra mojo and you may just own the whole damn game. Family will be falling all over you during the holiday. With the Sun sitting in your 4th house, it may feel as if you are the center of the Universe. Maybe….just maybe, you are.
Scorpio: Holiday burn out may just set in before the actual date arrives, dear Scorpio. Mars is moving into your 12th house and this signifies a need to conserve your energy wisely. You may also find yourself involved in all kinds of secret plots (Secret Santa perhaps? Or something more sinister?). Surprise parties or sneaky affairs – if that is how you are using this Mars, no wonder you’re feeling exhausted! Money is strong and you may be coming up with creative ideas on how to make more. That’s a much better use of your dazzling mind than useless intrigues. Put that Mata Hari vibe into uncovering new ways of bringing cash in the door.
Sagittarius: Happy birthday, dear Sagittarius! With the Sun and Mercury starting out the month in your sign, you can bet your sweet cheeks that you will be the most glossy star of the holiday season! Grab that spotlight and run with it. This is your month so it’s up to you to make the most of it. That won’t be hard because everyone will want to shower you with prezzies and kisses. Lap it up and sashay shantay! In matters of the heart, there is no better time to be single. Get out that mistletoe and you may be surprised at the line up of steamy potential paramours lining up. (PS if you are feeling like roaming a bit, why not go away for a day or two? Better yet, take random trips sporadically all month long if you can.)
Capricorn: You’ve been busy busy busy, dear Capricorn and guess that grind isn’t coming to an end any time soon. Mars is kicking your 10th house of reputation and career into high gear and this could be your time to step into your power. I’m talking bad ass bring ‘em on Gordon Gekko all the way. You have the ability to crush the competition and get mad respect – or fear if you push it too hard. You have a temper and it could come out so keep it in check, m’kay? Right around the holidays, the Sun enters your sign along with Mercury. You are about to scale even bigger. This is a powerful month and it’s up to you to go as far as you’ve always dreamed. Just remember to keep your feet on the ground as you soar, baby.
Aquarius: You have been doing great in your career, dear Aquarius and that trend will continue. After all, Saturn is still sitting happily in your 10th house, where it will remain for many months to come. But this month, pay attention to your social circle, particularly if it includes colleagues. Sure, you have your admirers but you may be shining a bit too brightly for a few. Hidden enemies lurk amongst you. No need for paranoia – just look for the ones who are as obsessed with power as you are. There ya go. Now avoid ‘em and you’ll be fine. Romantic interludes will take your mind off the intrigue. Put your clever mind on some kinky trysts and all that other stuff will not be so distracting.
Pisces: This month may find you with a desire to hibernate with some hot chocolate and a few good books but alas, the universe has different plans for you, dear Pisces. Social plans. Everyone wants a piece of you in December and it may be hard to pass on a good time with your friends. With Sun and Mercury in your 11th, you get to be the belle of the ball or the star of many a show. Between dinner parties, work events and family gatherings, this will be one social December to remember. You’ll get prickly near the holiday when your 12th house starts to beckon for some down time. Put up your do not disturb sign at the final week of the year and pull down the shades.
