December is your birthday month and the Sun remains in Sagittarius until the 21st. If you’re a typical Sagittarius, you’re a hedonist at heart and it’s fitting that you celebrate your birthday during one of the most festive months of the year.
The run-up to the holiday season can be the perfect excuse to party and enjoy yourself, not only on your birthday but if any invitation that comes your way.
Talk planet Mercury is in Sagittarius until the 6th and the planet of relating Venus until the 10th. Therefore, the focus is firmly on you and your personal goals and aims. This is about your image and profile, how you come across to others and how the world sees you. Find your voice and ensure you’re heard. It’s a good time to reinvent yourself and do more of what makes you happy.
Gemini Full Moon
Love too is under the cosmic spotlight with Venus in your star sign. And, when it comes to love, the most important date is the 8th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. This is a time when emotions are heightened and this Full Moon feels passionate, but also potentially angry.
This is because Mars is retrograde in Gemini and your relationship sector all month and active on the 1st – opposite Venus – and the 8th – opposite the Sun. Plus, Mars sits next to the Moon during the Full Moon heightening the dramatic feel of this Full Moon phase.
Yes, there’s a passionate vibe to this Full Moon, although you may be faced with an ultimatum. Be wary of any kind of emotional blackmail. And, definitely veer away from any kind of seduction or scam.
During the Full Moon phase, Neptune’s involved in Pisces and your home and family sector. The key dates are the 4th and the 14th. This could resurrect an issue from the past or expose a rift within your family.
Someone may not behave well this month and you don’t know how to react. As a Sagittarius, the truth is important to you and you won’t take well to someone lying or stretching the truth.
Yes, a Full Moon is an ideal time to bring things to the fore in order to clear the air. Yet, be wary of the consequences of an all-out row. It might be a wiser idea to let things be and surrender to life. Trust your personal intuition this month and put your needs first.
Also, earth sign Capricorn is strong this month. Mercury’s here from the 6th and Venus from the 10th. Plus, on the 21st, the day of the Solstice, the Sun moves into Capricorn and your personal money sector. Two days later, there’s a New Moon here on the 23rd.
This could prove to be an important time for money matters and the festive season is often expensive. Planets in Capricorn are urging you to take the sensible route when it comes to money, to plan ahead and not to be overly extravagant.
What might help is the promise of a part-time job or some extra work coming in. The key dates are the 17th and 22nd when help may be at hand.
There’s a major reason to be happy towards the end of the month as fire sign energy kicks in again. Being a Sagittarius, you’re one of the three fire signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – and when planets are in your element, there’s a natural flow in your astrology.
Even better news for you is the fact that it’s your ruling planet Jupiter on the move. Jupiter is the planet of joy, luck and good fortune and it’s where you find happiness, expansion and growth.
Jupiter moves into Aries on the 20th where it’s been already from May 10th to October 28th. Jupiter will remain here until May 16, 2023. This could feel like a breath of fresh air as the focus turns to you and what you want out of life rather than having to rely on other people or think of others before yourself.
Aries rules creativity, love affairs, entertainment, fun, luck and children in your horoscope. It’s the playful sector and a time to do what you love. Embrace your passion and desire. Plan some fun events with friends and family and make entertainment, laughter and socialising high priority. Focus on the positives in your life and steer away from negative energy.
If you’re looking for love or you you want to have a good time, choose the 20th when Jupiter moves into Aries. Or, the 29th, when there’s a lucky Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Aries that will be visible in the night sky. It’s a wonderful time to make a wish.
Jupiter’s move into Aries isn’t going to sort out all the nitty-gritty boring stuff of life but it is going to move play and pleasure high up your life barometer and that’s got to be a good thing.
Finally, at the end of the month on the 29th, communication planet Mercury turns retrograde and will be on go slow until January 28, 2023. This is your cue to slow down, do things differently and look at life from a fresh perspective.
When a planet’s retrograde, it turns your attention inwards. This can be a time of inner change and preparation. Things can go missing while Mercury’s on go slow. Sometimes, there are misunderstandings or mis-truths and you’re wise to keep an open mind and question everything.
Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn and your personal money sector. As Mercury’s linked to merchandise and the markets, this isn’t a top time for major investments.
Don’t act impulsively where money’s concerned when Mercury’s on go slow. If possible, delay any major transactions, be patient and bide your time. A payment could be delayed while Mercury’s in retreat, so plan accordingly and trust your intuition.
What is notable, however, is the fact that Mercury teams up with Neptune in Pisces as it switches direction. These two planets are aligned on December 25th, Christmas Day. This combination promises compassion, also forgiveness and it’s a sign to put family first over the festive period, whatever goes on earlier in the month.
